"Are we done? You can check on him at .......

"Yasue's already been treated. It was magic, I should say, and I felt like I could get up right away, but my strength was still drained, so I just fell asleep. With the baby.

I don't know if we're in the way. I don't think Chester can afford it.

Yeah. Yeah, he just stuck to the side of the bed, looking at the baby like he was a slut.

 The four of them, including Mary, nodded to each other.
 The four of them, including Mary, nodded to each other, "Well, that's to be expected, considering Chester's condition during the birth.

That one's not going away for a while.
"Right. We've already said our goodbyes, so let's just go home.
Yeah. We're hungry, too. I think Nao and the others have already eaten.

 And then Haruka turned her gaze to where Mitya, who hadn't stopped while we were talking, was munching on the last of the skewers.

 In the event that you have any questions regarding where and the best way to get in touch with us, please do not hesitate to contact us.

"......? It was delicious.

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

 I'm not sure if you're a fan of this, but I'm sure you're not.

 It's a little better than Rafan, but if you just want to eat good food, it's much better to eat Haruka's food.

 Even so, I sometimes buy food, which is a kind of festival compensation.

 Another factor is that sometimes I can eat rare food, but most of the time, such food is not good.

What do you want to do? Should we get something to eat?
We can't just call Chester and have him cook for us.

 The reason I eat most of my meals in this town at this diner is because it's my reward for helping Haruka and the others, but calling Chester at this moment would indeed be a devilish thing to do.

I'm sure you'll be able to find a new place to eat. Nao and the others have been to a few of them, right? There were many times when they didn't come home for lunch.

I don't mind showing you around, but ...... isn't that good, okay?

It's okay. It's a little delicate considering the price.

 When we were training all day at the guild, it was a hassle to come all the way back, so the four of us often had lunch at a restaurant near the guild.

 We asked Ketola about it and chose a restaurant that she said was good, but even that restaurant was not nearly as good as Aella's cooking.

 The prices were the same or a little higher.
 I'm a little confused.

Is that so? But that's where we're going for today. In a little while, you'll be left with nothing but leftovers.

...... Oh, that's what happens when you leave town.

The birth went well, you know.

 We've been here a little too long, but today we're done.
 There's no reason or room to stay.

When do you think you'll be leaving?

We're new at this. We'll give it a week or so to see how it goes. ...... And if it's all right, we'll leave?

I think there's still some room for improvement, but there's a deadline.

 The effect of the report to Marks should give you a few months to wait before the report about the dungeon goes to the guild headquarters.

 In addition to that, considering the distance between Rafan and King's Landing, another month or two.
 It will be a few months until some sort of policy is decided from that report and it reaches us.
 I want to be out of Viscount Nenus' territory by then.

I'd like to be out of the Viscount's territory by then.

 You'll be able to find a lot more information on the web.

    I'm not going to be able to see the baby.

 It was two days after the birth that Toya and I were able to meet Yasue's child, having left without seeing the baby's face that day.

 Yasue was walking right after the birth due to the effects of the healing spell, but Haruka and the others advised her to rest for at least one day, so she stayed in bed for a while, and we refrained from visiting her as men.

 So, two days later, the four of us, me, Toya, Haruka, and Natsuki, visited Yasue. We didn't want to bother her with too many people, so the other three stayed at the inn.

 The cafeteria had already reopened, and the only person who greeted us was Yasue, standing there holding a baby - well, just the two of them, including the baby.

Welcome. You've come a long way. Thanks to you, we have a healthy baby.

 Yasue smiles happily and walks normally, but when I think that she just gave birth to the baby in her arms the day before yesterday, I feel uneasy.

Yasue, are you okay to walk now?

"I'm fine. I've had a healing spell cast on me, so I'm perfectly fine. I feel a little weak, but that's because I haven't worked in a while, I guess.

And for that matter, .......

 I think it's okay to sleep for a while longer, don't you?
 I'm not sure if this is a good idea, but it's a good idea.

But even in the original world, in some countries, you'll be discharged the next day.
"Oh, really? You're going to have a baby, right? You're going to have a baby this big right there .......

 It was Toya who asked this with wide eyes and slurring her words in the process, but I totally agree with her.

 It's a little marvel of life, even if you know that's what it is.
 Isn't it too harsh to be kicked out of the hospital the day after accomplishing such a marvel?
 Let's be more gentle!

I've heard that. I've also heard that even an appendicitis operation is discharged the next day. I heard that's because of the high cost of medical care.

I was in the hospital for about a week for that surgery. ......

 Appendicitis, so-called appendectomy. It's a good idea to have a good idea of what you're doing.

I went to visit him, didn't I? You looked like you were in pain, right?

Yeah. The next day was pretty painful. The anesthesia made my head ache like crazy. I can't leave the hospital in that condition. You'd have to use a stretcher. I can't get up.

It's true that Yasue's condition is due to magic, though, isn't it?

I really appreciate it. I'll be working in no time. --Hey, you two, check out this girl.

Oh, that's right. ...... Oh, he's a boy, isn't he?

Yeah. Yes.

 You'll be able to look into Yasue's arms and see a very small, peach-colored, plump baby sleeping peacefully in her arms.

 It was hard to tell the s*x of the baby just by looking at it, even though its eyes were closed at the moment.
 No, it's probably impossible to tell even if she is awake.
 When they are babies, there is not much difference.

What's the name?

I talked it over with my husband and we decided on Alvari. You can call him Al.

Alvari...... Al. That's a good name. --I'm not sure.

Toya, you're too honest. Actually, I don't know what it is either. My husband picked it out of a bunch of names.

 After laughing a little at Toya's blunt words, Yasue stuck out her tongue and laughed.

 But the name. It's a little scary to think that Haruka and others have common sense in other worlds, but we don't have such common sense, so we name them just by sound. It's a life-long problem.

 I'm sure you'll be able to find something that works for you.

 ...... Yes, when naming your own child, listen carefully to the opinions of those around you.
 The priestess Ishka may be the best person to consult.

"Since you're here, Toya, would you like to hold her?

 Toya took a step away from Yasue's offer and shook her head.

"No, no, no. I'm too scared to hold a baby that's not ready to be born.

"Yeah? How about you, Nao?

I don't know.

Nao, you're going to be a father soon, aren't you? You can't even hold a baby, can you? Why can't you have a baby?

No, no, I'm not planning on ...... that yet, but just for a little while then.

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

I'm not sure if this is a good idea or not.

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

"Oh, oh, ......, that's pretty heavy.

 The average newborn baby weighs about three to four kilos.

 It's lighter than the weapons we usually use, but it feels much heavier, perhaps because of the weight of life.

 As I was looking at Al with this in mind, he woke up, as if he had noticed something was different.
