289-261 Get a dindle (3)

 As I thought last year, Aella-san is a genuine elf, and her lightness is comparable to us who have learned to strengthen our bodies.

 With her participation, we were naturally able to make progress in our gathering, and by mid-afternoon we had finished gathering from the three trees and were on our way back.

 After being treated to a late lunch at Aella's place, I headed to the temple of Lord Adversus to greet her.

 I wonder if the heavily charged bonus [Lucky! I don't know if it really works, but nothing bad has happened, and I'm alive and well, so I guess I should be grateful.

 It's been a long time since I've prayed, so I threw in a little more money than I should have, and found that my level had increased. In addition, I gained two levels, and am now level 24.

 The last time I gained a level was when I came back from the dungeon. ...... I guess the experience I gained from this escort mission was pretty big.

 It's not that we killed a lot of strong demons, but we did gain some experience from training with territorial soldiers and fighting marauders that were probably stronger than us.

"Hello, Nao-san, Haruka-san. It's been a while.

 As we were leaving after the prayer, Ishka, who was not there when we entered the temple, appeared before we knew it and called out to us.

"Hello, Ishka, it's been a long time.

Hello. It's been a while.

Where have you been? It's been a while since I've seen you.

I had to go to another town, a bit far, for work. It's made things a bit difficult at home.

 You know what happens when you neglect your garden in the summer and fall.
 What happens if you neglect your garden during the summer and fall? Of course, the grass will grow and the garden and flower beds will return to nature.

 Even though Hulk and his friends are gardening and maintaining the garden, it's not as clean as it should be.

 I can't help it, though, since Mary and her friends have recently started working with me and I'm often away from home.

 However, if we don't want to hire them as housekeepers all the time, we need to give them job training.

 After all, the only thing we can teach them is how to be adventurers.

Oh, that's what this time of year is all about, isn't it?

Yes. It's going to be very hard to keep it clean.

Nao and the others could hire someone to do it. Simple weeding is cheap and easy.

...... Oh, that's one way to do it.

 Haruka nodded approvingly at Ishka's suggestion.

 It's like the Silver Human Resource Center, where people are paid by the hour to do small chores.

 Our house has a security system, so we can't just go in and clean up after ourselves, but we can hire more people.

That's not bad. It would be a shame to make Mary and Mitya work too hard when they get back.


 If the garden is overgrown when they get back, Mary and Mitya will try their best to clean it up.

 Of course, we'd have to help, but it's a big place.

"Is this the kind of request that the ...... Adventurer's Guild is looking for?

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

No, no, no! I recommend an orphanage for such Haruka and her friends! Although the orphanage is a bit unreliable as a labor force, the wages are lower than those of adult adventurers, and you can have your own staff at once. The temple will guarantee your trust, so don't worry!

 He was pushing hard.

"Were you aiming for ......?

I'm sorry to hear that, Haruka. But, well, it's not like we don't get requests like that at this time of year.

 It's a good idea to have a good idea of what you're looking for.

I'm sure you'll agree with me. It's a great way to earn money and learn how to work, but it's also a great way to meet people in the community and get job training. In terms of future employment. It's also easier for employers to hire kids they've known since they were little.

That's ...... true.

 I've heard that orphans don't have any relatives, so it's meant to create a relationship with them by providing such opportunities.

 Well, it's not hard to understand.

 Even if it's just a chore, a child who has worked diligently for you for several times will be easier to hire than someone who just showed up.

There are children who are taken in because of this kind of work. Some children are taken in because of this kind of work. If they stay in the orphanage, they will be in trouble when they grow up.

 I see.
 An orphanage doesn't just provide a place to live and food, does it?

 In the event that you are not able to find the right one, you will be able to find the right one.

"What do you think, Haruka? I don't think it's a bad idea to hire him. ......

 It's not a situation where I can relax too much.

 I'm not going to be too reckless because of Natsuki, but I'm afraid Toya and the others will rush in too much when they find a clue.

We can't leave today anyway. It's okay if we go from now until nightfall.

Okay. Thank you very much. Well, we're all free today, the wages are about the same, and the number of people--

 As if to say, before we change our minds, the wage offered by Ishka is quite low. Considering the difference in prices, it was less than half of the minimum wage in Japan.

 No, well, child labor is already a bad thing.

"It's very cheap, is that okay?

Hahaha...... includes small children who can't work much. You can think of it as a donation. Oh, I'll have Sidney with my apprentice Kane, so I don't think you'll be bothered. ......

 Well, it's not a lot of money anyway.
 It's much bigger than the amount I just threw into the money box.

I understand. Okay, please.
"Thank you very much. Thank you very much. - I'll bring him back in a moment.

 I saw Ishka off to the orphanage in the back, and waited for a while.
 Sidney and Kane arrived with the children in tow.

 We didn't have much chance to talk to them compared to Ishka, but since they were younger than us, we didn't feel too nervous, so we exchanged a quick greeting and went to our house.

 The children were a little surprised to see the large yard and the thick grass, but they soon scattered to different parts of the yard and started working.

 As Ishka had mentioned earlier, there were many requests for weeding, and each of them had a tool in their hands.

 Each of them is paired up with an older child and a younger child, so it's a bit safer, but Haruka and I have to be careful not to let the kids get too close to dangerous places.

 Specifically, the shredder, Toya's forge, and the area around the building.

 The shredder has a safety device, and the forge is locked, so it should be safe, but the most dangerous places are around the building.

 If you are fooling around and bump into a window, the security system will be triggered.

 If you're an adult, you shouldn't die so often, but what happens when you're dealing with children? .......
 It's a little scary.
 However, despite our concerns, the orphans were very serious.
 They were not joking around, nor did they show any signs of slacking off.

 Regardless of their efficiency, even a little kid like Remy was working hard, which was amazing.

 I guess that's how hard life is. .......

"You guys are doing great.
Yeah. Does this mean we don't have to be careful?
Yeah. I'll treat you to some ...... dindol. I got a lot of them.
Yeah, why not? Maybe a slice each.

 I've been told by Ishka not to bring anything too extravagant ......, but if it's for someone who's come to work, I don't see a problem.

 It looks like all the orphans are coming, so there won't be any trouble later when some of the children can't eat.

I'll call out to Kane and the others then. Kane! Sydney! Hey.

 Haruka called Kane and his friends, who were working with the orphans, over and gave them a brief explanation of the security system, pointing to the walls and windows.

The house is equipped with a security system, so please be careful about that. As long as you don't climb over the walls, break the windows, or force the doors open, you should be fine.

...... No, I don't think there are any kids who would do that, right?

That's right. They're all good kids. Some of them are naughty, but when they're working, they're serious.

Just in case, just in case. Even if they don't do it on purpose, accidents can happen.

 Haruka laughed and shook her head at them, looking a little resentful.

That's true. I understand. I'll be careful. Leave it to me.

Yes, please. And the well is behind the house, so drink water and take breaks as needed. It's still hot.

I've got small children. I won't cut your salary if you take some time off.

Thank you for your concern.

 This garden is full of grass.

 Even though it's almost autumn, I'm worried about heat stroke if I keep working for hours in the hot sun.

 We left Sidney and his friends, who seemed a little relieved and breathed a little easier, and went into the house to start cutting dingles and preparing chilled fruit water.

    I'm sure you'll agree with me.

 The maneuver was effective enough.

 The garden, which had been so overgrown with weeds, was clean enough by the end of the day, and the work was finished.

 Haruka and I used magic to take care of some of the areas that we usually use for training, but the majority of the work was done by the children.

 Incidentally, our magic was very popular with the children, probably because they don't usually have a chance to see it.

 And Dingdol, who provided the magic.

 They expressed their joy so honestly that we couldn't help but offer them another slice each. ...... We can't help it, can we?

 It's not that I'm a big fan of this kind of thing, but I'm not a big fan of it either.

 At the end of the day, I handed Kane and the others their wages and called it a day.

 Early in the morning of the next day, we left the town of Laffan to return to Pining.
