274-186th episode fox vs Fox

In the new town, there was a magnificent pillar standing tall.
It was as thick as a telephone pole, but with a sense of stability.
You can clearly see that it is not a single log thrust into the ground, but a combination of several parts to maintain its strength. It is truly a structure.
If you put it on an athletic field, all the little kids will start climbing it.

'It's even better than I imagined.
'Are you sure?I'm confident when you say so, Yashiro-san!

No, don't be swayed by my words if you have more skill than me. I'm just an amateur with some knowledge about architecture.

'Don't just look at the appearance, look at the performance.

As the early morning light reflected off the dew and the moisture-laden morning air glistened, Norma emerged from behind a pillar with a leisurely gait.
Her bewitching costume and languid expression reminded me of a lady of the night after a long day at work.

'Thank you for your hard work.
I'm not sure what you mean by '......', but I think it has a different meaning.

In fact, Norma was probably working with him on the installation of the pulley, checking its operation, and maintenance.
If you look closely, you can see the macho men of the carpenters and hardware guild lying around here and there.
Dead and dying.
I feel like I've wandered into a harem of sea lions.

'All but the two generals are dead?
'It's because this woman made them reckless.
'Huh?Don't be ridiculous!You're the one who rushed us!
'We had at least three more days of construction time to spare!We had about three more days to complete the work. Hurry up and hurry up. ......'
'I don't like your spirit of hurrying our hardware and taking it easy on yourselves!
'I'm not rushing you!I'm not rushing you! ...... You get more excited than necessary when Yashiro-san is involved.
'Ha, ha!I'm not sure what you're talking about, this fox!I'm not sure what to say.I'm not looking for praise from Yashiro. ...... I'm looking for praise from Yashiro. ............ You're the one who's trying to look good by making designs here and there that aren't on the blueprints. I'm sure you'll be pleased with the results.
'Design is necessary for architecture!
'Yes, that's enough!Don't fight, guys.
''In the first place, it's wrong that these guys and their subordinates are too weak! I'm sorry.

...... Ah, yes. I understand now that you two have made me reckless, by what you just said.
Take it easy on yourself. You two are the only highly skilled dominant craftsmen I know of.
The rest are just gynets.

'I'm really glad I don't work for you guys.
'Why is that?If you come to my house, I'll give you the best treatment.
'I'll give you a position at my place.
'That's not fair, carpenter fox!In that case, I'll recommend you for guild leader.
'Which one of us is the coward?
'Stop fighting!

I'm not going either way.I'm not going to go either way! ...... I'm a guy who likes to rest in moderation. I can't keep up with your vitality.

But why do these people not get along so well? ...... Is it homophobia?
Umaro is the only girl I can talk to face to face outside of Magda. I'm sure you're not interested in her at all, even though she's beautiful and pretty. She's beautiful and pretty, but she's obsessed with ...... underdevelopment.

'You criminal.
'Suddenly I've been labeled terrible!
'A normal man would expect to see a glimpse of Norma's breasts when he's distracted after an all-nighter.'
'Yashiro ......, you're a criminal enough.'

He quickly straightens his chest and Norma takes out a cigarette.
...... d*mn. I was almost ready to say hello to something.

With two of the foxmen craftsmen in tow, she moves to the front of the DOKERU No. 1.
Looking up at it again, it's quite big.
Pushing it with your hand doesn't even faze it. Even a kick with all his might would be repelled.

'Can Magda defeat it if she really tries? ......'
'Why are you trying to defeat it?If Magda or Delia-san wanted to, they could beat him, so please don't say that even if you're joking!

Yeah, that's true. Delia would probably say, 'Well, let's give it a try. That's what she'd say.

'You've moved away from the waterfall a bit, haven't you?
'Yes. Mr. Ma'ul asked me to do that.
'Mr. Ma'ulu?Did he come?
'No, I sent Yangboldo and Goozuya to Mahrul's place yesterday. After that, we exchanged letters using the same idea as we did with Dokkeru No. 1.

It is said that a long rope was hung from the top, to which a tub was tied, and the information was transmitted by letter.

The reason why Mahrul requested to shift his position is because he either changed his ............ location to a place where it is easier to pick up the letter, ...... to a place that is harder to find, or ............ to a place that is out of the way when using the waterfall. ...... to a place that would not interfere with the use of the waterfall, or ............ a third. In short, they are planning to build a waterwheel at the waterfall eventually.
It's a Mahr-like idea of getting everything you want.

No houses have been built on the cliff side of the new town because of the fear of falling rocks.
This area is left in its natural state. Of course, it is tended to.
So, there was no problem in shifting it to the side.

On the cliff side is a large cave dug by the hamsters, a waterfall, and DOKERU No. 1.
...... It's as if the 42nd district is encroaching on the 29th district.

I'm not sure if you've seen this before, but I'm sure you've.

They're testing to see if the Todoroki-1 can deliver the package properly.
But ......

'We just did a geological survey the day before yesterday. ...... How come it's already done?
'No, that's why, you fox b*tc*. ......'
'You're the carpenters who were so excited about competing with me.

In other words, the two top guys were competing against each other, and that's why the work was getting done.
It's probably something like this: ......

'All we have to do is wait for the fox lady's parts to be made...'
'The pulley is already in place. Hurry up and build the pillar and let me test it.
'The pillar will be up soon!Look, it's already up!We're already waiting for the pulleys!
'It won't take long to install the pulleys!I wonder if this pillar is durable enough for such a rush job.
'It's not a rush job!Our guys can do this with ease!
Our men can work harder than this!
'We can!
'We are the ones!

Probably not too far off the mark.

The carpenter and the hardware store ...... did a good job. Next time I'll serve you a big bowl of rice at the sunny pavilion.

'Yambold and Goozuya are going to Mael's place, right?Who's going to take care of the problems with the pulley?'
'Don't worry. We're sending Gonsuke too. We can't rely on the carpenters alone.
'............ Who's that, Gonsuke? I've never heard of you.'
'You've met him many times. Like when we kicked out the ruffians who occupied the sunlit pavilion.'
'There were so many of them back then. ......'
'See, that's him. The guy with the ass jaw, the blue beard on the lower half of his face, and the wispy speech despite his size.
'Your place is full of guys like that!That's what most of them are like!

At any rate, there's no need to bother remembering his name, so I'll stop using my brain for useless things.

'So, is this Agoske reliable?
'That's Gonsuke!

I don't care what he's called.
It's just Mukimukione One, after all.

'Gonsuke is the best at what he does. And he's a good judge of character. You can trust him. I'll give you my seal of approval.'
'You trust him a lot, don't you?
'I often ask him to give me a talking-to when I have important work to do.
'So you're Norma's right tit.
'Right-hand man.No, no, no, no, no, no, no!

Well, that's true.

'Well, let's give it a try.
'I've prepared a letter for you, and I'll carry it upstairs.

Umaro takes out a piece of paper with several checkpoints on it.
Operability, durability, shaking of the tip, presence of unusual noise, etc. ......
It looks like he's going to have his superiors check for any irregularities when he sends the package.

'Just in case, I'll send a signal to my superiors.

Umaro whistles his finger.
There is a high-pitched sound that stimulates the eardrums.

'You're good.
'Huh?You're going to praise me for this?I'll teach you if you want!
'No, I don't want that.

I wonder. Is it so unusual for me to give a compliment?
Umaro is smiling uncomfortably, and Norma is looking at him with annoyance.

Soon, a wild sound like a horn came back from far above.
Oh ......, it sounds like something Yambold would make.
I wonder if these guys usually send signals to each other like this. It's oddly familiar.

'Come on, Yashiro-san. Just give it a try.'
'Yeah, ...... me?'

I put the letter in the crate that serves as the back of the truck, and Umaro waves it at me.
But once you see how high it is, it's ............ honestly a pain in the ass.
After all, you have to pull a rope and lift a load over 20 meters.
My arms are going to be sore.

'With four pulleys and weights, it should be easy to move. Just try it.'

Norma looks strangely confident.
Well, I'll try. I'll let you take over if you get tired.

And when I pulled on the rope, ......

'It's so light!

It was much lighter than I had imagined, and with just a little tug, the crate went up very quickly.
No wonder Norma is so confident. This is the kind of technology you want to show off to someone.

'I'd even like to have this device used for the well at the Sunken Pavilion.

Every day, water for the toilet is pumped up to the tank on the roof.
That thing is pretty heavy, and it's pretty hard. ...... I'm being asked to do it more and more often these days. Magda should have done the heavy lifting. ...... You put a weak man like me to do the heavy lifting. ............ d*mn.

'Try letting go of my hand once on purpose.

Norma says, also proudly.
I let go of the rope, but the load doesn't fall, and the brakes are still firmly in place.
I pulled the rope vigorously, and when I let go of the rope while the load was rising, the brake was firmly applied and the load stayed there. There was very little swaying, and it seemed to be able to carry even liquid without spilling.

'That's quite a feat.
'With metal gears, there's always a shock when they mesh. That's why I used a hexenbiest's Achilles tendon to make it flexible!The grooves of the pulleys are lined with hexenbiest leather to increase friction and prevent wear. ......'

Norma's face overflowed with words one after another.
I want you to listen to all the gimmicks we have incorporated into this device. I want you to hear all about the gimmicks we have incorporated into this device.
It is said that there are many fine considerations here and there that will make sense to you if you listen to what he has to say.
...... Just don't show your smug face to too many people. It looks a bit stupid.

'...... So, this thing can carry a woman, a child, or a dying old man upstairs with ease!If you think I'm lying, bring a dying old man along to try it out!
'No, I wouldn't want him to live out his days here.

Norma is a bit of a disappointment for a girl with her skills.
She wants to be praised. Her ears and tail are wagging, and her emotions are unusually apparent. You can't imagine the expression on her face from her usual calm expression.

'That's Norma. I'm glad I asked you to do this. Thanks to you, it's much easier for me to carry.'
'Muhaa~..................!It's not that bad. That's about it. Hmm~............ mmm!

You look very happy.
You're trying to make a smug face and failing spectacularly, and you're squirming.
I guess he's not used to being praised.

'Well, it's only because we have a solid foundation that we were able to pull this off!
'Don't compete with us, ......, you're great enough.

I'm sure that if you keep working with them, they'll create more and more advanced technology. Yeah, I have a feeling about that.
If you put people who have a strong sense of rivalry together, the friendly rivalry may not stop.

'Thanks to our technology, we were able to do a good job, thank you.
'How dare you say that when you were so particular about the device that you overweighted it!We wouldn't have even been able to mount it if we hadn't changed the design!
'Yes, yes. Just leave it at that. They're both great.'
'Ah, it's getting a little hotter when the sun comes out. ......'
'!I'm not going to let you casually peel off my clothes to emphasize my breasts!
'Thanks to Norma, I've created something wonderful!

You idiot, Umaro. Customer satisfaction is greatly influenced by the service aspect.
Norma's bound to win. No, rather, the valley wins!

'Now, let's continue the test of Tanima-1.
'Let's continue with the test of Tanima-1.

I guess they're both the same, aren't they? In fact, I'm more attached to Tanima No. 1. I think I'll consider changing my name. ......

With such a serious proposal in my mind, I pulled down the rope again.
With almost no effort, the wooden box went up easily and smoothly.

The huge wooden box, one meter square on each side, must have weighed quite a lot by itself.

It was quite an exaggerated container to send a single letter, but considering the fact that it would be dropped while empty, it must have a certain weight.
I hadn't made such a detailed calculation, but it must have been quite complicated to lift it with so little force.
The fox race may be more intelligent than we think.

While I was thinking about this, I heard a bell ringing on the cliff. A bell sounded on the cliff, and the rope stopped moving as if it was locked.

'It's going to take longer than I thought, isn't it?
'Yes, it is. If it takes this long with Yashiro, it might be too much for the hamsters.

No, no, it's enough.
It was not even a tenth of the effort I had expected.

I mean.

'Are you going to let the hamsters do it?
'Hmm?Isn't that what you're planning to do?
'No, well, I was planning to .......'

I was going to put them on duty and have them send packages and deliver the packages that were sent to them. I've already gotten Estella's approval, of course.
...... said.

'Do I look like I'm working with the ham kids?

I haven't told Umaro and Norma how to run the site.
Despite this, they seemed to think that if I started something new, I'd be using the hamsters for labor.
Not good. Maybe I'm using them too cheaply because they do everything without complaining.

'No, I mean, ......'.

Umaro silently slides his outstretched finger to the side. --There was an army of hamsters waiting for him, staring at him with sparkling eyes.

I'm sure you'll be pleased to know that they're already very motivated.
I'm sure you'll be able to figure out how to use it.

They look like they're having a great time, so it's okay.

'So, how do you feel about using it?
'We'll be improving it as we go along, so we'd like to hear your honest opinions.
'No, this is good enough. I'd like to hear the opinions of those who have used it.

In the first place, it's only to be used for communication with Ma'ul.
If it's good enough, it's good enough.

'Oh, I got your reply.

When I looked up at Umaro's words, I saw a wooden box descending with a smooth, almost electric movement.
No, I'm afraid of this smooth movement.

But then, just as it was about to land, the crate exploded with a 'clunk, clunk! Just as I was about to land, the crate began to flail violently.

'What are you doing?
'Oh, that's not right!This can't be ......!

Norma and Umaro rushed over to catch the crate.
Norma immediately went behind the pillar and was inspecting something like a control panel. When I peeked in, I saw gears of various sizes meshing tightly together. It seems to be quite a complicated structure.

'Aren't the gears inaccurate?
'No, of course not!This gear was even praised by Yashiro!

Norma comes to me, asking me to check the precision of the hardware.
At first it was something simple like a pair of scissors, but difficult to make precise, and recently it had evolved into a gear like this.
A gear is a very difficult part to make, as it is useless unless the teeth are evenly shaped and spaced.
Recently, Norma's gears have become quite accurate, and I've been paying attention to them.

I'm sure there are some failures, though. ......

'Didn't you get carried away and neglect the work?
'No, of course not!
'Well, gears are hard. It happens once in a while.'
'You see!That's what Yashiro says!
'If that's what Yashiro-san says, then that's what ...... is.

No, so what is this trust you have in me?
Do you think you're a god of mechanical engineering or something?

'Onii-chan!There's a letter in here!

While I was talking about maintenance, the ham kids opened the crate without permission and brought out the contents.
...... They already think they're doing their job, don't they? They are fastidious children.

'We'll send something back!
'Get one or two people on board and send it with you!
'You can't take people on board.

BU has a system called a toll tax.
Even if you don't have any cargo, if you enter the district through a route other than the authorized one, it will look bad. In the worst case, you can't complain if you are suspected of smuggling.
People should refrain from coming and going until there is an agreement between the lords.

'No people allowed!
'Too bad!
'I wanted to ride!
'Human rights holders are not allowed!
'Then I'll give up my human rights!
'From today on, I'm a burden in both name and reality!

'''Aww~y!That's a good idea!
''Hey, hey, hey, hey!

Don't give up your human rights just because you want to play with a new toy!
...... is not a toy!

I'm not sure what to do with it.
'''I'll fix it as soon as I can!
'''Don't be such a b*tc*!
''Why the sheep?

Oh, ...... Yamboldo's pranks are infecting the hamsters. ...... No, is it folklore?
The 'why sheep' bit is giving me a very deja vu feeling, I'm afraid.

I've got a letter back from the top, so I'm going to look through it.


There were two letters.
One contained the checklist that Umaro had sent me.
And the other was from ......

'That's a poisonous heart-shaped envelope. ......'
'I hope it's not for me, I hope it's not for me, I hope it's not for me, I hope it's not for me ......'
'Too bad. It's got 'To Yashippi' written all over it.
'Oh, Umaro, you are sometimes called 'Yashippippi'?
'I'm sure you mean Yashiro-san, right?

It was a letter from Mahr to me.
I'm sure this heart-fluttering envelope is some kind of joke.
It's ...... a form of harassment in my book.

I managed to suppress my aching heart and cut the seal.
Inside, there was another poisonously cute letterhead, with a handwriting that made up for the cuteness of the letter.

"Yashippi. I hope you met Tracy safely.How is she?Isn't she nice?She and I have similar interests, so I'm sure she'll be a good match for you. She's a little difficult, but she's a very nice girl. Take good care of her.

In the event that you've got any questions regarding where and how to use the internet, you can contact us at .......I'm not sure what to make of that.
It's true that both of them seem to like watching the Forty-two districts. It's the purpose that's different, though.

They also said that we're easy to get in touch with, so I guess that's what it is.

And thanks for the nice meeting. This, Mr. Assunto. He's a very smart boy who knows what he's talking about. Could make a big difference in sycamore distribution. I'll be sure to thank you generously for that.

...... Mr. Assunto.
If Assunto is treated as a 'good boy', ...... how big is that woman's capacity?
It's a great way to get the most out of your time with your family and friends.

I'm sure you'll be pleased to know that I'm not the only one. I'm jealous that you have such wonderful friends, Yashippi. I envy you.

Ha-ha-ha, that's a funny joke. Me and Assunto are friends, hahahaha .......

If you're interested in meeting the Koji maker, I'll write a letter to the lord of the 24th district. Just let me know when. Oh, but don't worry, I don't mean to ingratiate myself with you. This is in return for the bean paste. Once it's finished, the demand for beans in the 29th district will go through the roof. I can write all the letters I want. I'm grateful. I really do.

I don't know why. ...... When Ma'ru says it, it smells so fishy.
A dry chuckle escaped my lips as I continued reading...

I'll take care of it. I'm sure you'll be able to get a little bit of help.

--I'm sure you'll be able to get away with a little selfishness.
...... What's going on? I don't even want to ask.

I'm sure you'll be able to find something to help you out.

Lord of the 24th district. And the Koji maker. I'll go see these two.
Judging from Mael's letter, the malted rice maker is probably in the 24th district. As I recall, the 24th district is a district that makes money from soybeans. ...... I see, so it's the district that produced miso.

'Hey!You guys!I'm not sure if you've seen this before, but I'm sure you've seen it before.

A shout rang out, and I looked over to see ......

''I'm coming up!
''Mairare yo!

A few ham kids climbed into the crate and revealed their excited faces. ...... Don't play.

'Hey, Yashiro!

When it was time to go back, Estella arrived with Tracy.
What's that guy doing?You stayed at the sunny pavilion because you couldn't keep an eye on Tracy.

'Huh!So, this is Torukeru No. 1?It's a magnificent thing!

Estella's eyes sparkled at the new facility in District 42.
Next to her, Tracy is also looking up at her with her mouth wide open.

'Is there some kind of trouble?Norma seems to be in a great hurry.
'Yeah, he's a little unsteady on the landing.
'Well. I'll take a look at it for you!

Estella rolls up her sleeves and steps out. I'm sure you'll be able to figure out what's going on. ...... No, it's not like you're getting involved in something that Norma is struggling with. ......

But I'll take this opportunity to check with Tracy.

'Estella. Did you have an aura of 'I want to go see it' all over you?'
'Yes. That's it.'

Tracy gazed at Estella lovingly, her cheeks slightly tinted as if she was remembering that moment.
The journey here must have felt a bit like a date.

'I thought Estella-sama couldn't keep her eyes off me, so I gathered up my courage and asked her to join me!
'Oh no, you're not asking me out on a ...... date, are you?
'What?I was on a date.

I'm scared!Your face is so scary!
I can feel the murderous intent of someone who has had their memories trampled upon.

'The road to the church where the wedding ceremony took place is the number one date spot for couples.

He smiles again and gives me some information that I'm not sure where he got it from.
I'm having trouble with your 'bu' about that wedding.

'Oh ...... I had a wonderful time ............ on our first date before marriage'.

I'm not sure what to say.
I'm not sure if I've ever been on a date before.
I'm not sure if this is a good idea, but it's a good idea.

It's a great way to get the most out of your time with your family and friends.
It's not every day you get to see such an unpleasant sight. It must be taking a toll on your mind, poor thing.

'Well, they won't suddenly start moving, so just be careful not to step on them.

If you step on them, you'll get your shoes dirty, and some of them will be happy to see you.

'Yashiro, can you come here for a minute?

Estella waved her hand toward her next to Norma.
It's ...... so I don't have to tell you. Don't get involved in things you don't understand and don't get other people involved. I don't know either, maybe.

I don't know, maybe....... Gof!
'No,......, she's waving at me.'
'Even a drop is enough for me,.......'
'If you're spilling nosebleeds in the spill, you'll run out of blood fast. ...... Just wipe it off. What?

It's a good idea to use a handkerchief to hold your nose while you go to Estella, accompanied by Tracy, who seems happy for some reason.
The crate has been lifted about two meters. She must be examining its movement.

'Hey, what's wrong with the gears?
'You can't tell that just by looking at it.

I'm not the kind of surprised person who can tell a few microns of distortion at a glance.
A legendary sword smith who's lived for hundreds of years might be able to pull off such a feat, though.

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

If you replace one cog at a time, one day you'll hit a bad one.
But to do that, you have to make all the gears one by one.

Norma's shoulders will naturally fall. ...... tits, plump.

'Where do you look when someone's down?...... Let me help you, okay?'

I'm not sure if you've seen this before, but I've seen it before.
Such a sultry reaction is rare. It's a destructive force that makes you want to reach out to her.

'Well, I'll at least help you.
'Are you sure?I promise!A man's word is his word.

Something about ...... made me very happy.

'Well, I guess I'll just take the crate down once.

With that, he operates the lever directly connected to the gears. ......, and the crate descends smoothly.
Estella and Tracy watch with interest as the crate slowly descends.
But when the crate is about to hit the ground, it goes into a violent rage. But when they were about to hit the ground, the crate went into a violent frenzy, and they both shook their shoulders. and they all shook their shoulders.
Tracy was so startled by the sudden outburst that she let out a cute scream of 'Aaah! Tracey was so startled by the sudden outburst that she let out a cute little scream and flinched away.

And if she made such a movement, it would put more load than necessary on the cloth that was forcibly holding the too-large object in place.


and two bulges appeared as if the dragon had awakened through the sarashi and leaned its head back.
The two bulges appeared as if the dragon had awakened through the sarashi and leaned its head back.

The two bulges appeared as if to say, "I'm not going to be able to do this. ''''' I'm going to be able to do this. '''''

They raised their bodies in unison.
It was as if all the zombies under the graveyard had crawled to the surface on Halloween.
So what, Tracy is the Necromancer and those tits are the Necronomicon?
I guess big boobs have magic in them!

'Come on, Tracy, you're a part-timer at the Sunlit Pavilion. Get back to work.'
''''' beams!We're starving, so we're going to the Sun Goddess Pavilion. '''''

I guess we can make another profit now.

But it's a big deal. ...... The muscles in the hardware store didn't react at all to the Necronomicon.

'Ugh ......, Mr. Obayashiro ......, I told you it wouldn't suddenly start moving ......'.

No, that's because things have changed, you see.
The men's HP has been restored because you used magic.
A magic Estella will never be able to use.

Despite the many problems, Todoroki-1 was completed.
Assunto seems to have met Mahrul safely and the distribution of the sycamores will be smoother.

I was a little relieved to read the P.S. written at the end of Ma'ul's letter.

"P.S. There's been some talk about the distribution of sycamores, and I'm sure the lords of the 29th district will be busy dealing with that for a little while.

That bought us a little time.
The day when they will have to decide whether to pay the damages to BU or just sit it out ...... is just a few days away.
In the meantime, go see the lord of the 24th district and the koji maker, I suppose.

There are too many things to do, but on the other hand, there is too little time.
For now, I'll just take Mael's kindness in stride. ...... even if it's a situation where I'm dancing on Mael's hands.
