34-029 Touching Reunion?

 After the baptism of lunch, there was no one among us who wanted to buy dinner here, either.

 As we waited, washing our taste buds with the dried meat, bread, and dindle fruit we had brought with us, we heard a knock on the door of our room when it was quite late.
 I opened the door, and there was Yuki, and...


 The one who jumped on Yuu, half pushing Yuki away, was Natsuki.
 It's a good idea to have a good idea of what you're looking for.

 The hug between Natsuki and Yuu is a scene of "emotional reunion! But behind them, Yuki is frozen with her arms outstretched.
 I felt sorry for her, so half-jokingly I opened my arms and said, "Come on! I'm not sure what to do.


 Oh, I didn't expect that.
 He just jumped right in.
 I thought he was in on the joke, but maybe he was crying ......?
 You'll be able to find a lot more than just a few of them.

"Ew, .......

 Whether it was a good thing or a bad thing, Yuki clung to me even tighter and started crying in earnest.
 To be honest, as a purely Japanese person, I'm embarrassed by this kind of skinship, but since it's a situation like this, it's possible, right?

 --But then I noticed that Haruka and Natsuki were looking at me with smiles on their faces.

 Didn't you guys just shed tears in an emotional reunion a while ago?
 And don't grin too much Toya!

 I apologize to Yuki, but I pat her on the shoulder and show her what's going on around her as she looks up with tears in her eyes.
 I'm sure you'll be pleased to know that I'm not the only one who's a bit of a jerk.

I'm not sure what to do. It's not like you're pushing me away out of nowhere.

 In the event that you've got a lot of time, you may want to take a look at a few of these.

 I don't think there's anything to be embarrassed about.
 It's acceptable to hug a friend. Don't laugh.

 Especially Toya, she's guilty.
 Haruka and Natsuki were smiling, but Toya's laugh had a chilling quality.

"Oh, really? I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to do that.
I could hardly talk to you at that time! I could hardly talk to you at that time! I've been told not to talk about it!

 I'm sure Yuki wanted to have an emotional reunion at that time, but Haruka took the initiative the moment she tried to raise her voice.

 Well, I can't say that Haruka was wrong, because I was afraid that if she did it in that situation, a lot of trouble would come.
 You can find a lot of things that you can do to make your life easier.

I'm not sure if this is a good idea, but it's a good idea.
No, I'm responsible for that too.

 I was joking, but I said, 'Come on! I'm not sure what to do.
 I'm sure you'll be happy to hear that.
 I'm not sure what to say, but I'm sure you'll understand.

I'm not really happy about it, but more importantly! It's not that I'm not happy about it, but more importantly, why did Yuu do that deceitful thing? I'm sure you'll be happy to hear that.
"Me? I'm not that kind of character.

 It's a great way to make sure you're getting the most out of your time and money.

It's not a character! I'm not sure what to say.
I'm sure you'll be pleased to know that I'm not the only one.

 I'm not sure if this is a good idea or not, but it's a good idea.
 It is completely in the teasing mode.

I'm not sure what to say. I'm sure you'll be pleased to know that there's a difference in the level of friendship between me, Natsuki and Yu.
No. No, it's just that Yuki seems to be stubborn. Natsuki, you know, has the quality of a willow?
I can't believe that Yu thought that way! I'm not sure what to do. I'm not sure what to say.

 I'm sure you'll be able to understand why I'm here.

You're looking good, aren't you?
"Yeah. I was worried about you. ...... But have you both lost some weight?
Yeah. We just couldn't get enough of the food .......

 I'm not sure what to say, but I'm not sure what to do.

"Yeah, I know. I don't like the food here either.
I'm also on a successful diet. I can't say I'm too happy about it, though it looks like I won't have to worry about rebounding in this environment.

 I can't be happy about that.

I'm sure you'll be happy to hear that. It's a good idea to have a good idea of what you're looking for.

 I'm not sure what to make of it.
 It's a good idea to have a good idea of what you're looking for and how you can get it.

"What? What is this useful magic!

 Yuki and Natsuki look at each other, their eyes widening in surprise.

"Light Magic Lv.2, 'Purification'. It's a very useful spell.

 In the beginning, this spell was applied one by one, but as a result of using this spell every time, now it can be applied to all of them at once, even if there are five of them with Yuki and the others.
 The original purpose of this spell is to purify the wicked, but I think that the number of occasions when it is used for that purpose among adventurers is quite small.

I didn't know light magic had such a useful function. I don't know why I didn't make it level 2 back then.

 I'm not sure why I didn't make it to level 2.

I had no worries about some injuries or lights because of that, but the bathroom was ......
I had a hard time doing laundry. We didn't have any money, so we only had one change of clothes.

 They both sighed together.
 I understand how you feel.
 If it weren't for Haruka's magic, I might have fallen behind.

 I mean, you can instantly clean your hands after dismantling a boar, or your body and clothes after sweating through a strenuous workout.
 My only complaint is that it's not very refreshing, but I'd be punished if I said that.

You know. In this world, you can't even buy 3-packs of underwear for a thousand yen, and clothes are expensive.
That's right! You're right! Prices are really high... Tomoya, I'm not wearing such cheap underwear!
Yuki, what kind of crazy argument are you making? Sit down. Have you eaten dinner?

 Haruka patted Yuki on the head and sat her down on the bed.

I'm sure you'll be able to tell. ......
The taste is the taste. ......
"I thought so. You can eat this.

 Haruka handed me a bag full of dried meat and a bag full of bread.
 The dried meat is also an emergency food, so there is quite a lot of it, but the bread can be bought at the Bear of Slumber, and it doesn't last long, so if the three of us eat it, we only have enough to last two days.

 We ate it for lunch, so it would be gone by the time Yuki and the others ate it, but considering that we've been eating that level of food since we came here, I feel like sharing as much bread as I can.

I'm not sure what to do. I'm not sure what to do. This! It's really, really, really good!
Yuki, you're misbehaving. Why don't you take a lesson from Natsuki?

 Natsuki is just munching on the dried meat in silence.
 It's a little hamster-like and cute.

I'm not sure what to say, but I can't help but share my excitement! I didn't know there was such delicious food in this world!
"It's our homemade.
"Oh, really?

 In the event that you're not sure what you're looking for, you'll be able to find out more about it here.

But the bread you're eating is from our inn, right?
I'm not sure what to do. Amu amu. Normal. It's normal, but it's good. ......

 I'm not sure what to make of it.
 In a sense, it is almost tasteless, but it does not interfere with the taste of other dishes, and compared to black bread, which is difficult to eat because of its own taste, it can be evaluated as "delicious" enough.

 Natsuki also ate the bread and dried meat, alternating between the two, looking very good.
 When I look at Natsuki again, her cheeks seem to be a little thinner.

"Natsuki, are you okay?
"Yes, thank you, Nao-kun. But to be honest, if it wasn't for the [Robust], [Disease Resistance] and [Poison Resistance] skills, I might have been in danger.

 It's a good idea to have a good idea of what you're looking for.
 I'm sure she's the weakest of the five of us, even if she doesn't have the "Gamayanagi quality" that Haruka mentioned earlier.

 This may be the reason why she took those skills when she made her character. ...... At least that food is not poisonous, right? It tastes bad, but...

I'm sure you'll be happy with the results.
"Desert! I never thought I'd hear those dreamy words again!
"...... Yuki, what kind of diet do you have? I'm sorry.

 I'm sure you've heard of it, but I'm not sure if you've seen it.
 Her mouth and hands are still moving, though.
 The two of them swallowed what was in their mouths in a panic and picked up a piece each and ate it.

"It's sweet .......
Yes, it's sweet. ......
Nectar. It's nectar. That's what ...... is.

 I'm almost crying.
 But I understand how you feel.
 I just ate one after that meal and it tasted so good.

Can I have one more ......?

 Haruka smiled and replied to Yuki, who said so hesitantly.

You can eat as much as you want. We have plenty.
Yu, you're a god!
You're a god!" "I'm crying because I can really guess your eating habits.

 Even so, with her hands, Haruka peeled more and more dingles and put them on the plate.
 The two of them ate them one by one, but as expected, when they had eaten two or three each, their hands stopped as if they were full.

"Phew~. Thank you, Yuu. I'm glad I'm your friend!
I'm glad I'm friends with you!" "You say the best lines in the most delicate situations, Yuki.

 I'm glad I'm friends with you!" Yuki said with a big smile, but Haruka laughed with a subtle expression on her face.

It's a good idea to have a little bit of time to think about what you're doing.

 I'm not sure if it's a good idea, but it's a good idea.

I'm not getting in either.

 I'm not sure what to say, but I'm sure you'll understand.

I'll go with you. Where's Nao?
I'll have a slice.

 There were just three slices left, so each of them ate one.
 --Yeah, it's good.
 They're good, but I've been eating them almost every day for a while now, so I think I'd like to try another fruit.
 They're too expensive to buy, though.

Sorry, you three. I ate it without reservation. ...... It's pretty expensive, isn't it? Fruit is a luxury item.
Yeah, I think the market price is 500 Reais a piece.
"Five hundred?

Wouldn't it have been awkward to eat a piece of that expensive fruit?
No, Natsuki. You've shared more expensive fruits than this with me.
That was a gift. We don't usually buy that kind of stuff at home either.

 In fact, Natsuki's family was quite wealthy, and we also benefited from their generosity, sharing the desserts they brought for lunch, as well as some nice sweets.

 In such houses, many gifts arrive at once during the mid-year and year-end gifts season, making it difficult to consume them in one's own home.
 Basically, the gifts are food, so they have a shelf life, and you have to return the gifts to each person, so Natsuki's family is not very grateful.

 Well, such gifts are unnecessarily expensive, and if you give the same level of return, it's like being forced to buy expensive and unnecessary things.

First of all, the situation is completely different now. You said you had 1,000 Reais at first, right?
That's right. It was tough at first. ......

 The distant look in Haruka's eyes reminded us of that time, too.
 We bought the bare essentials, not even a change of clothes, and the only weapon we had was Toya's wooden sword.
 It was a start we could not afford.
 Natsuki and the others must have had the same trouble.

"Well, this ding dong - you mean this fruit. It's okay, we picked it ourselves. You can thank Toya for suggesting that we get them. Oh, and by Toya you mean Tomoya.
"Is that so? Thank you, Tomoya-kun.

No, I only suggested it, but Nao actually took it. Also, you can call me Toya. That's how I'm registered in the guild.

I understand. Thank you, Nao-kun. How hard is it to harvest this?
The tree is 50 meters tall and the fruit grows at the tip, so in the original world it would be quite difficult.
Fifty meters? We don't have trees like that in Japan, do we?
Oh, Shang, you climbed a tree like that? Without modern ropes or carabiners?

 Natsuki and Yuki stared at me in surprise.
 I understand the feeling, because normally I would consider it too dangerous and impossible.

I can understand that. You see, Haruka and I are elves, right? That's why we didn't have as much trouble. You know?
Yeah. It was a lot easier than the 50-meter mark implies.
Oh, so race has an effect?
Yes, it does. I can feel things like racial characteristics.

 I'm not sure if it's a good thing or not.
 There are a lot of advantages to spending points to create a character.

 Of course, there were strong disadvantages for some races, such as the vampire half-breeds, but they are probably in the minority.

 However, since there seems to be racial discrimination in some areas, it is not always a good idea to choose a non-human character.
