"Oh, but I think it's ...... Tommy, right? That's the guy, right?

 Natsuki and Yuki lowered their eyebrows in annoyance at his words.

I don't mean to discriminate, but dwarves are indeed a bit ......

I'm not sure if I'd want to do that. I don't think so.

It's ......, right? Sorry. But if you do, you'll have to love them very much to marry them.

 I'm not sure what to do with it.

I'm not sure. I'm not sure if that's a love thing or not. Yasue.
"No, it's not!

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

"In the first place, I was in a much worse situation when I came over here. ......

 The words are heavy, and we fall silent.

 I didn't hear the details, but I heard that he had a lot of trouble after he picked a fight with us.

 We didn't have the luxury of accepting a hostile stranger in that situation, so I don't regret it, but I do feel a little sorry for him.

Well, it doesn't matter. I'm happy now. I'm happy now because of all that hard work.

 Yasue laughed, and unconsciously or not, she was gently patting her stomach with her hand.

 And then, perhaps seeing that the conversation was interrupted, Mitya, who had been silent until now, looked up at Yasue and opened her mouth.

"Hey, hey, sister. Is there a baby here?
"Yes. It will be born in a month or two, three months at the most.
"Mee, I've never seen a baby born before!

 Yasue's answer to Mitya's question was that of a mother.

So I guess the timing was just right.

Yes, it was. But isn't it dangerous to work here with that stomach?

Why are you working here in the first place? If it's just office work, or even serving in a cafeteria, you never know when you might bump into someone and fall.

 In the event that you've got a lot of time, you'll be able to take a look at the following.

"Tell him, gentlemen. If I stop you, you won't listen to me. ......

 While we were chatting, most of the customers had finished their meals and left, freeing up their hands. A man about our age came out from the back of the restaurant, wiping his hands.

A man about our age came out from the back of the restaurant, wiping his hands, saying, "You know, if I leave, you won't have enough staff! --I'll introduce you. This is my husband, Chester.

Hi. My wife's been taking care of you.

 Chester was a gentle, good-natured man who greeted me with these words.
 I've never met him before, but he's introduced me to Haruka and the others.

No, thank you. I'm sorry to interrupt your work. ......

 Whether or not we're in Yasue's care, we've certainly been talking to her during business hours, so I greeted her and Chester smiled and shook his head.

Chester smiled and shook his head, "I'm fine, this time of day. In fact, I'm glad my wife didn't move.

"You're worried about your husband, aren't you? Yasue, can't you get some help from the guild?

No, but you can't always get people who will work for you, right?

Like that guy who threw away his job after a fight?

 It's not as convincing when you say it yourself.
 I'm not sure what to do, but I'm sure I'll be able to do it.

"Forget about it. It's a stain on the past.

I think most people would work diligently if the guild offered them a job, except in ...... special cases.

Mmmm. ......

"If you're worried about it, why don't you just hire someone full-time instead of part-time? That's how many customers you have, right?

That's right. I'm not sure what to do, but I'm going to do it. And the salary is low.

That was pretty awful, wasn't it ......?

 Yuki and Natsuki look at each other distantly.
 Indeed, it would take a very special person to be motivated by such treatment.

But if you're thinking of having a baby, you'll have to save money, right? It costs a lot of money to educate them here.

"That's true, but it's more important to have a safe birth first. Besides, you taught her how to sew, didn't you? I think you should hire an employee, even if it's a job that Yasue can do sitting down.

 Haruka makes such a suggestion to the hesitant Yasue.
 Teaching probably means [copying skills].

 If you're a skilled sewer, you're good enough to get a job, so you should hire someone, even if you have to use all the money from your sewing job.

...... I see. That's a good idea. I'm not sure what to make of this.

 As you can remember from the beginning, the wages of the waiters were quite low.

 As you can see, the salary of a waiter is quite low.

 It is hardly a skilled job, and a tailor is much better paid.

 Of course, it's not so simple, because even if you have the skill, it's not a matter of having a job, but it's not so difficult to earn enough money to pay for a tailor's salary.

The number of customers who come for Yasue-san may decrease, though.
"Natsuki, no one comes here for a married pregnant woman, let alone before.

 Yasue laughed, but she was more than beautiful enough.
 She's more than beautiful enough.

"What about them? Mr. Chester?

Quite a lot, to be honest. In the beginning, I was approached by so many people that it interfered with my work.

"Hey, Chester .......

There are a lot of regulars here, and it's gotten a lot better since my wife and I got to know each other, but ...... it's still popular. You can find a lot of people who are interested in this kind of thing.

 It's not impossible that there are some first-time customers, but the regulars will take care of those.

I see, you look good on the outside, Yasue.

Haruka, that sounds like you're not good at anything but looks.

...... I'm sorry. I can't deny it.

That's terrible.

No, no, no. Yasue's doing great. Yasue is doing very well. She was not used to it at first, but now she's getting used to it.

Chester: ......

Yasue: ......

Yes, please leave the lovemaking to the evening.

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

"Well... Now we have to figure out how to keep Yasue from overexerting herself as a pregnant woman, right?

That's right. If we adopt your idea, we need to recruit outside the adventurer's guild. ....... Chester, do you have any ideas?

Well, fortunately, none of my relatives are out of work, but if we broaden our scope a bit, I'm sure we can find someone. It will take some time, though.

Until then, I'll just have to make do.

No, no, no. If a drunk hits you and you fall and go into premature labor, you'll be in a world of hurt. There's no way to deal with a premature baby.

But ......

Don't worry, we'll help you with that for a while.

Are you sure?

Yes, of course. Fortunately, we've got two experienced guys. Okay?

"Yeah, sure. If there are three of us, it won't be too much of a burden for one person.

I think we can cover the cost of one person, Yasue-san.

 I'm sure you didn't think that Haruka and the others would say such a thing, but Yasue's round eyes moistened and she thanked them.

"Oh, thank you .......

I'm really sorry, but I really appreciate it. I'll take care of my parents and make it as easy on them as possible.

 Chester bowed deeply, and Haruka and the others nodded vigorously, saying, "Leave it to me.
