410-378 Before the journey (3)

So far, no.

 But Haruka, who was being looked at like this, replied without changing her color.

 In fact, I, who wasn't involved in the conversation, felt my face heat up.

"Really? But it's possible?

"Well, we do what we do, don't we? But it seems that elves are slightly less fertile.

I don't want you to get pregnant too soon, though. I'm thinking about it, though.

Oh, hey, Haruka, ......?

 I couldn't help but interrupt her at the unbelievable flow of conversation, but she responded without hesitation.

I'm not sure. It's not like we're close enough to care, right?

 No, I think we're close enough to care.
 Or what?
 Are girls supposed to talk about such things openly with each other?
 Isn't it supposed to be a secret?
 I'm not sure what to make of this.
 ...... Yeah, you're even harder to get into a conversation with than I am. I understand.
 I'm sure you'll be able to find something that works for you.

Nao, I think it's a little late for that, don't you?
That house is well built, but there's no insulation or soundproofing in the walls.
...... I can't hear you. I can't hear anything.

 I'm lying down on the table, holding both ears.

 I'll do my best to avert my gaze from what Yuki and the others are saying, which is almost as good as saying it without being specific.

I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to live with those two little guys, but I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to live with them. I'm afraid it's going to break up in a share house or some such romantic relationship.

"Toya seems to want a beastman wife, and she seems to go to places like that in moderation.

"Oh, really?

 When the subject of himself came up and Yasue glanced at him, Toya meditated and did not change his expression like a noh mask.

 If he says something, he will be ridiculed, and that is probably the right choice.

 In fact, at first Haruka had said, "Never go to a brothel," but after she got used to this world to some extent, she didn't have much to say about it.

 She probably doesn't think very well of Toya's addiction to the Blue Tower, but the money he's spending is his personal property, and it's much safer than going to a cheap place and getting a disease.

 As for the concern that it might not be good for Mary's education, it is completely unjustified; in fact, I sometimes feel that they are more sophisticated than she is.

 In the first place, the views on s*xuality vary greatly from era to era, so it is only natural that different worlds have different ethical views. There is no point in worrying about it.

 That's why I don't ask Toya about it even when she sometimes stays over, and I just make fun of her and let it go.

 What's more, I've never directly accused him of anything, which is a very good thing.

 It must be difficult for Toya to say, "I'm going to the brothel," since he was first told not to go there, and he must feel uncomfortable.

 I'm not sure if I'd be able to say to a girl in my class, 'I'm going to a brothel! .......

 I wouldn't be able to.

 --If I were to say to a girl in my class, "I'm going to a brothel," I'm pretty sure a war would break out.

So, let's leave Toya out of this. What about Yuki and Natsuki? They're making out in the same house. It's annoying! Don't you think that's annoying?

 No, we don't make out that much, you know.
 At least not when we're in public.
 Yuki and Natsuki looked at each other and nodded.

I'm not so sure about that. It's almost the same as before.
Yes. The two of you were always very close to each other. If you're wondering, it's .......

 It was slightly different.
 I'd have been more careful. .......

"Oh, I see. So you're used to seeing them. I get it. Well, I've always thought, "That's a lie, they're not together," I said. "That's like family. There was a theory that Nagai was the one.

"Oh, really? I'm not sure what to say.

 I'm not sure what to make of it, but I think it's a good idea.

I can't believe Haruka either. ......
What? What's wrong with me? What is it?
Unreasonable? I said the same thing!

 Haruka pressured him with a smile, and Toya hurriedly waved his hand to explain.

You've only ever looked at Nao, right? In that sense. I'm sure you'll be happy to know that I'm not the only one.

...... Well, yeah, but...

"Really? It's different outside of school?

 I'm not sure if I'll be able to do it, but I'm sure I'll be able to do it.

I'm not sure. But when it's just the three of us, these guys don't pull their weight, do they? When we go out to eat together, it's normal for the two of us to share a single dish.

"Oh, really?

 Yasue's eyes sparkled, and Yuki and Natsuki looked curious.
 In addition, the ears of Mary and Mitya, who are quiet, are also twitching.

"Or you could just use the same spoon and say...
Would you shut up, Toya?
Toya, what's the harm in talking?
No, no, no, no! Don't...

 As Toya escalated, Haruka pulled her ears and I pulled her tail to stop her.

 I feel like I'm doing a lot of things in front of Toya, so it's not a good idea to make her talk more.

"Okay, I get it! I'm not talking!

Okay, good. You might as well keep your mouth shut forever, okay?

I get it, but it's been pretty much the same at home lately, hasn't it? You can't hide it in front of them. ......

But you know what? It's a bit embarrassing when you actually say it.

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

It's a shame. But I see. I was hoping to hear a little bit about love triangles, love quadrangles, and hopefully love pentangles.

You have a bad personality, Yasue.

 Yasue. I'm not sure what to make of this, but I'm sure it's a good idea.

 When Haruka looks at her, Yasue shrugs her shoulders lightly.

I'm kidding. Half of it.

"You're not half serious.

No. To be honest, I wasn't expecting a slog, but I was expecting a love story. Do you have anything more interesting to say? That Nao is actually dating Natsuki and Yuki behind Haruka's back?

No, I'm not!

 Don't drag me into your dangerous conversation.
 I'm not trying to stop girls from talking about their love lives.

That's usually how it goes down. --I'm sure it'll happen.

Oh, so Yuki is openly trying to get you? It's a good thing that you're not the only one who has a problem with this. I don't think Yuki and the others can marry ordinary people around here.

I don't know. I'm sure the standard of living will drop.

"It's the lowest level, from our point of view. But if you want to get rich, it's going to be the big merchants and the aristocrats, and then we're going to be second or third wives, maybe even mistresses.

"Right? There will definitely be serious conflicts within the family about interests and heirs.

I think Nao is a safe bet. That's kind of boring. What about the other classmates?

Oh? Yasue, can you think of anyone? At least none of the classmates we've met so far have been decent people. ......

"Ugh. ......

 In the event that you've got any questions regarding where and the best way to get in touch with us, we'll be happy to assist.
