204-186 Circumstances of the sisters (3)


Toya, when did you ....... I didn't know you'd already completed the Hikaru Genji plan. ......

 I can't believe you've already completed your plan.

It's not too early to tell.
At least Mary's ....... No, they're both the same.
I didn't do it! I didn't do anything!

 I'm not doing anything! Toya desperately shakes her head at Haruka and me.

 I'm sure you'll be happy to know that I'm not the only one who's had a bad experience.

 We were sleeping in the same room last night, and while I was asleep, Mitya and .......

 I'm sure you don't, but just in case, right?

I don't know. If you find a good man with money, get him to 'palm' it.

"Dad, .......

 Mary has an indescribable expression on her face when Mitya says that.

 I'm not sure if I should call it a good education or just too much too soon.

"Well, Mitya, do you understand what I mean?
You're going to feed me!

 He looked at Mitya and asked him calmly, and that was what Mitya answered.

 It's not wrong.

 And that is a very important factor in deciding who to marry in this world.

 First of all, before looks and love, there is worthiness.
 A man who does not earn money has no human rights, but he cannot get a wife.

 On the contrary, a man who earns a lot of money can get a wife. Yes, even more than one.

 Rich men are more popular than ugly men.
 The world is kind to people other than beautiful people.

 In a sense, it is equal, but in a sense, it is very severe.

 By the way, it goes without saying that if you have the same money, you will be more popular with beautiful people. .......

I'm sure you've heard of it. Mary, what should we do? Of course, if you think it's suspicious, you can just leave.

"I can understand your suspicions. We're not going to force you to do anything you don't want to do.

But we can't wait to make a decision. We're in the middle of a job.

 Mary pondered over the words of Haruka and the others, which were quite simple.

 A stranger suddenly said, "I'll help you. If a stranger suddenly says, "I'm here to help you, follow me," it is normal to be suspicious. In fact, you should be suspicious.

 Of course I'd be suspicious too, but I wonder if Mitya is a bold person, or if she lives by her instincts like we were talking about earlier, and she's forcing my sister to make a decision.

The only people who can take chances are those who can make split-second decisions.

"Ugh. ...... Well, if you're going to help us, what should we do?

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

I'm sure you'll be glad to hear that. I'm not sure if it's a good idea, but it's a good idea.

 It's not really a job, but it's not really a job that needs to be done either.

 You can use magic to help you clean your house, which is usually a pain in the ass, and it would be difficult for you to cook as well as Haruka and her friends, who have the same skills. In the first place, there is the matter of taste and preference.

 If I had to find a job, it would be tending the garden or gardening, as Haruka says, but neither of these are essential.

 The garden is just a hobby, and the maintenance of the garden is not a problem because almost no one visits it, we are the only ones who see it, and we are out most of the time.

Chores: ...... Is that all? I've got a face like this and a poor body,.......

 I'm not sure if she thought it was too convenient, but she said that and glanced at Toya and me.

 So you work at night.

 I'm not sure if I'd be able to handle a child of Mary's age.

 She was burned, so she was out of my league as far as appearance was concerned.

 Toya seemed to feel the same way, and smiled.

Don't worry, I won't do that. Think about your age.
You will find a lot of people who have been in the business for a long time.

 You'll be able to find a lot more than just a few of them.

I'm sure you'll agree. At least not for us!
I'm sure you'll agree.

 I'm not sure what to say.

 In the event that you have any questions concerning where and how to use the internet, you can call us at the web site.

 It's a good idea to have a good idea of what you're looking for. ...... No, well, I don't deny that there are people who are not normal.
 I'm sure you've heard of it.

 But at least, Toya and I are different.

In the first place, don't we need to make them work?
"Toya, that's no good. It's not good to simply feed them.
There's no school, and you're totally NEET.

 NEET, "Not in Education, Employment or Training".

 Not studying, not working, not training.

 It is debatable whether a person of Mary's age can be called a NEET, but considering the fact that she is already of school age in Japan, it is not wrong to say that she is not in school.

 However, Haruka's insistence that they should be allowed to work probably has another purpose.

 From our point of view, we may feel sorry for them and want to help them, but from Mary's point of view, they are not our relatives and they are being fed without any work.

 It's easy to imagine how uncomfortable that would be.

 The fact that they are useless means that it doesn't matter how long they are gone, because they can be removed at any time.

 If you work a little, you will feel a little more comfortable, and you will be able to express your opinions a little more easily, if not selfishly.

"Just so you know, if you follow us, we'll be moving to Laffan. That's where our home is. If you stay in town, we'll at least send you to an orphanage.

Ugh, orphanages are not ......
...... Not so good, is it? The orphanage in this town is not so good?

 I'm not sure what to say.

 I'm not sure if it's the same in Kergu, but I'm sure it's not the same in Rafan.

I know a kid from the orphanage, but he doesn't have much money. ....... There seems to be a lot of people, and considering this time, ....... We're beastmen. ......

"Oh, money, huh. And with all the turmoil, the number of people is increasing, isn't it?

 Even if there is no wrongdoing, as long as it is run by donations, there is nothing to be done if the donations are small.

 I've heard that there is support from the lords, but it's probably not enough.

 Moreover, there are probably many children like Mary who have lost their parents due to the recent turmoil, and if that happens, the number of children entering the orphanage will naturally increase, putting pressure on the operation.

 Furthermore, Mary and her friends are rare beasts.

 There is no clear discrimination among the adults, but children, even those of the same species, can be bullied for the slightest thing.

 Beastmen, with their distinct differences, can be easy targets.

"Sis, ......
I understand! Please let me work!

 It's not that I'm not a good person.

 It's good to know that you are willing to work.

 It is a good thing to have a desire to work.

 In Japan, this would still be a moratorium period, but in this world, adulthood is early and independence is early.

 According to Ms. Ishka of the orphanage, Mary will start working in a few years.

 If Toya is going to support her, then she has to work to earn a living.

Yeah. That's good. I was worried about leaving her out in the city now that we know each other.

That's right. Well then, let's extend the stay as soon as possible. Mary and the others will need some time to recover their strength.

Oh, no, I'm fine! I can walk! I'm feeling much better than I thought I would. Hey, Mee?

Yeah! I'm fine!

You are?

 It's true that the color of your face and the movements of your body make it hard to believe that you had collapsed and almost died yesterday.

 Maybe it's the magic or the special juice?

But I'm worried, so let's stay another night. I'd like to try some magic.
"...... Oh, Regenerate?

 Haruka's gaze fell on Mary and Mitya, or to be more precise, on their scars.

I'm not sure what to say. I'm not going to be able to use it until after I'm done with my errands for the day.

I've already been to the ...... bookstore, so I guess the only thing left to do is buy some clothes for Mary and the others.

You're right, these clothes are not good. ......

 The original clothes that Mary and her friends wore were tattered, so now they are wearing Yuki's clothes, which are the smallest of all our clothes.

 To put it bluntly, it's too big.
 It's not something you can walk around in, but it's not something you can walk around outside in.

 However, the clothes we usually wear are handmade by Natsuki and her friends.

You're not going to make them this time?

It's hard for us to make them in a day, even for us. That'll have to wait until we get back. Let's just buy one for now.

    I'm sure you'll like it.

 We would have liked to take Mary and the others with us to buy clothes to fit their bodies, but we couldn't take them out dressed like that, so we left them to guard the inn and went into town.

 We went to a few second-hand clothing stores and bought durable clothes.
 They were not cute, but Haruka and her friends said, "I make my own cute clothes! They said.

 In fact, all the clothes we wear are made by ourselves and are well-made, and the personal clothes they wear on holidays are at least distinct from the clothes worn by the common people walking around.

 In this world where entertainment is scarce, they are probably making these clothes partly as a hobby.

 The cloth used is reasonable, and the cost is quite high, but it is said to be "cheaper than good old clothes" because it does not require sewing costs.

 As long as the price is reasonable, we are not in a position to say anything about it.

 Incidentally, the clothes we bought for Mary and the others this time were more expensive than the second-hand clothes we first got in this world, but it seems that the disturbance had an effect on this.

 Many people, like Mary and her friends, had their houses burned down, and these people inevitably lost their clothes along with their household goods.

 The economic principle is that if there is an increase in demand and a shortage of goods, the price will go up.

 We were also forced to buy used clothes at a premium.

 The way Haruka and the others looked so unhappy, if they could have gotten some cloth, they would have started making clothes instead of buying them.

 Unfortunately, the price of cloth has gone up here in Kerg, and we don't have any cloth that can be used for clothes.

 Even though we can carry a lot of stuff in our magic bag, we still keep unnecessary things at home, and sewing cloths are stocked in our sewing room.

 The clothes I bought this time are not very cute, even from my point of view, and Haruka and her friends are not very happy with them, so they will probably have to make new clothes as soon as they get home.
