361-No additives Episode 16 Yodamari-tei, in the morni...

'Mr. Yashiro: ...... Mr. Yashiro: ......'

Early morning. ......, I think.
There's someone shaking me. From the sound of it, it's definitely Jeannette.

'Yes, I'll pretend I'm sleepwalking and let you enjoy my fluffy breast pillow. ......'
'Good morning, Yashiro. You're looking good this morning, too.

Stick to .......
The voice was Jeannette's, but it seemed to be Estella who was shaking her.
I raised myself up a little too vigorously, but nothing touched my arm.

What a vicious scam.

'I'm uncomfortable!I'm going to bed!
'You didn't open your eyes once. That means you're not awake yet, you know.

Yesterday's late nights had taken their toll, and my eyelids were stubbornly refusing to work. I can't move a muscle.

It's no wonder.
...... In the first place, I had a bad feeling when Loretta said she was leaving the advertising to the ham kids. They don't know the limits.
It's been a long time since we've all been together, and I was a little excited, so I was just in the mood to say, "Let's go! But when I arrived at the ...... store, I was shocked.
The place was packed with people.
The crowd reminded me of a cheap B-grade zombie movie, as if all the residents were surrounding the store.

As soon as we opened the door, the regulars rushed into the restaurant, and the seats were quickly filled, some of them had to wait for a while, but Ginette couldn't see the line again.
I mean, if Norma hadn't cleaned up the store, Paula and the others would still be there. I'm glad you're here, Norma.
Yeah, yeah. Security was good.

Interesting episode?
I didn't have time to worry about that!
I just went back and forth between the kitchen and the customers' seats, occasionally washing dishes and helping with the cooking, and that was all I could do.
The rule that the cashier had to be a "ginette" dragged me down and caused a lot of trouble in the kitchen.

As a result, I was exhausted both physically and mentally.
Therefore, I can't get up in the morning!I can't do that kind of thing!

Yashiro-san. If you're feeling sleepy, would you like to cancel your donation this morning?That's what I came to ask you.'

Oh, so it's donation time already.
So I just wanted to make sure. That's very thoughtful.
...... I wonder if Jeannette is actually a beastman?How can she be up so early after moving around so much yesterday and working harder than anyone else?
You don't have the physical strength of Medora, do you?

'You should just wrap yourself up in your futon and go to .......

I'm sure you'll be happy to know that I'm not the only one who's a bit of a jerk.
Shut up and shut up!

'Why don't you take a hot bath and wake up like Delia and Norma?
'What?Delia and Norma?

You're up!
You're awake, of course!

'You're staying here?
'Yes. They were really tired, so they stayed in the guest room.'

What ......?
I'm not sure if you've heard of it, but I'm sure you've heard of it. .........!

'So, the two of you just took a bath together ......'.
'I'll join you!
'No. You've already gone up, and now you're getting dressed. ......'
'Gaia wants me to help!
'I'm already dressed.'
'What is it, Yashiro? You're not up yet?You'd better get your ass in gear.

Just as I was about to jump out of bed when I heard Gaia's voice, Delia and Norma walked into my room. I changed my clothes neatly and ............ puked!

'...... I'm going to sleep now.'
'No thanks. You should wake up ...... up, because if you doze off for no good reason, your brain might rot.'

You're annoying!
At least mix it up in your dreams!
It's so warm in your dreams, you're going to wet yourself .................., that dream.

I'm going to get up. I'm getting up.'
'Well, I'll be downstairs, so come down when you're ready.

Ginette showed no sign of yesterday's fatigue. Ginette smiles brightly and leaves the room.

He works longer hours than the sun. ...... Thinking about this, I went to bed with my clothes on, took off my crumpled clothes, and changed into something else.

It's back to business as usual from today.
I wonder why. I don't feel like I've been resting at all. In fact, I'm exhausted.

As I slipped out of the room and was about to descend the stairs leading to the courtyard, I heard Jeannette's scream from the store.

'What the hell!

Her heavy legs kicked the ground and she ran.
My brain is alerting me to prepare for an abnormal situation, but somewhere in my mind, I'm thinking, 'But that scream is a rather insignificant one that comes out when there's a stupid incident.

At any rate, I cut through the kitchen and went out to the floor, where a troubled-looking Jeannette came running up to me as soon as she saw me.

'Oh, um, Mr. Yashiro. What should I do?

Before I could ask what, an incomprehensible scene popped into my field of vision.

There are four people on their knees in front of the entrance of the Sunlit Pavilion (not in the store).
Two of them were a white, fluffy couple, Yap Lock and Wuerer, and the other two were Barbara and Teresa.
...... What the hell are you doing?

'My hero!I beg your pardon for this outrage!That's right.

Yeah, ...... I have no idea what that rude thing is. ......

I'm not sure what to do. I guess I fell asleep on a soft mattress. ...... I'm not soft!
'No!If only I'd been strong enough, this wouldn't have happened!Please!I don't care what happens to Aashi, but please don't let this girl, Teresa be the only one!
'Hero-sama ......, my husband and I are at fault as well. Please be generous with your treatment. ......'
'Let's see, ...... for now, everyone stand up. And explain it to me in a way I can understand.'
'No!Until this crime is erased, I will never see the hero's face again. ......
'I'll step on it.Get up.

I grabbed Yap Lock's head, who seemed to be the easiest to handle, and forced him to stand. He sits down on a nearby chair.
Ginette and Norma carefully sat down Wuerer and Teresa, and Delia rather roughly sat Barbara down on a chair.

'And?Who can explain it the best?'
'Um, I'm the main pillar of the family, after all!
'Alright, Wuerer. Please explain.
'Oh no, Hero-sama, ......?
'You, pull yourself together!Hero-sama wants to say, 'You should just shut up and accept all the responsibility. He thinks that talking too much will make you look like an excuse.
'I see. ...... As expected of a hero. ...... I didn't think that far ahead. ...... I'm ashamed!
'Estelar. Lordship, lend me one.
'What are you doing?I'm not going to lend it to you.

I'd like to issue a hero ban on this city.
They're too far gone.

So, after calming down the fearful Wuerer, Estella patiently asked me why I was on my knees--

'I promised to come over last night to eat popcorn, but I broke my promise.

--That's the stupidest thing I've ever heard.
It seems that Yaplock had invited the Barbara sisters to his house yesterday morning, after they had spent the night in the prison's guest quarters.
He showed them the place and the field where they would stay until the completion of the detached house, and explained to them the nature of their work.

'So they lent Aashi and the others a soft futon ...... that felt so good it was out of this world ......... ...before I knew it, the date had changed,......!
'How hard did you guys sleep on? ......'

Yap Lock's futon is just an ordinary futon you can find anywhere.
It's a great way to get a good night's sleep.

'...... yakuza, if you break the yakuza, you'll be able to ...... get rid of it...' ...'
'Hero!Please be generous with your treatment ......!
I'm not sure if this is a good idea or not.

I'm just shocked that people think, 'Maybe he'll use it! I'm shocked that people think that.
You'll be able to get a lot more information on this subject at .......
I'm a horrible cheater.I'm not sure what to do, but I'm sure it's a good idea.
It's better to be like, 'If I piss this guy off, my life will be over.
In other words, there's nothing wrong with Yap Lock's idea!In fact, he's right!Thank you!

'Thank you, Yap Lock!
'What?The ......, no, the ............, the ...... what?'
'That's okay, Yap Lock. It's just that I got lost in a spiral of stupid thoughts and got stuck somewhere.

And that's the rude thing to say to the lord of a flat body that's not going to get stuck anywhere.

You're the one who should apologize for being so rude to me.

'Well, Yashiro-san, ...... how can I convince you in such a case?
'Even if you tell them not to worry about it, they'll still worry about it. ......'

I'm not sure if they hate me or not.They are so stubborn that I think they don't like me.
In such a case, it would be better to give them some kind of easy-to-understand punishment to make things go away smoothly. It would also be a form of atonement for these guys. ............ Oh, I see.

'Well, Barbara.
'Oh,...... Oh!

Barbara's eyes widen behind her long bangs at the mention of her name.
I guess she's scared after seeing the bright future with her sister.

'You, help me out here.
'What,......, what?
'It's a public speaking job.'
'What's ...... that?

When Barbara heard the word 'public speaking', she folded her arms and thought seriously.
And the answer came out...

'Oh, assassination, huh?
'No, it's true that you might be in front of the target, but ......'.
'No, Yashiro. If you're looking for an assassination, I'd say it's more efficient to attack from behind.
'Then it's safer to kill it from a distance, without getting too close.
'We don't have to do anything complicated like that, we can just blow up all the witnesses, right?
'You guys are all so scary.

Is this the Shura Kingdom?
No, that's not what I'm saying!

'Barbara, you're going to be ............ pretty.'

Barbara froze, and I told her the job description.
Slowly, clearly, and profusely, while watching Barbara's face twitch ...... profusely.

'It's delicious, isn't it, lady?
'Aaah!Oh!This is the popcorn Missy was talking about!It tastes too good!
'Right?Don't be shy, just eat it!
'Yes, sir!Itadakimasu!
'It's so good!

Teresa imitating Barbara with her funny honorifics.
...... We need to give these guys a proper education.

'Guys, you better be nice to this Magda guy. Magda is a professional popcorn maker!
'...... Hmm. Respect him.'

Magda woke up to the sound of a noisy floor, but when he found out that the customers were waiting for popcorn, he forgot his sleepy mood and showed off his professional skills.
Then, as if remembering, Ginette looked at his work with a bit of regret.
It wasn't the same look he had given me yesterday when he was watching Magda's work in Cantalucia.

And now we are on our way to the church, with Norma and Delia, Barbara and Teresa, who helped us yesterday.
Loretta is following us, looking like she deserves it. She slept in the same bed as Magda last night. ...... Are they good friends? I'm sure they're good friends.

And Imelda and Regina went home as soon as they could, right?
'They'll go home as soon as they get bored, right?It's selfish, isn't it?
'Well, I volunteered to help this time, so I can't force you to do it.

I really think that Delia and Norma are very good at taking care of me.

'So, Miss. Where are you going now?
'Oh, a church.'
'A church?

Barbara suddenly stops and hugs Teresa tightly.
She seems to still be thinking that going to church will separate her from her sister.

'It's okay. I'm not taking you to the church in the 24th district.
'Oh, really?If you're lying, I'll turn you into a frog!Aashi won't hesitate to do that!

I'm not sure if you've ever heard of this, but I'm sure you've heard of it.
You can find a lot more information on the web at ......

I'm not sure what to say. The church of the 42nd district, even the wounded beastmen, Sister Bertina will be responsible for protecting them, and will not forcibly take away a young child with a guardian. I swear to you, God of the Spirit.
'So, it's ......?'

In the event that you've got any questions regarding where by and how to use the internet, you can contact us at our own web site.
Still, she hugs Teresa tightly.

'In the first place, you have misunderstood the 24th district church. I'm sure you'll be happy to know that the doors there are tightly closed.

As we walked, I told him about the Church in District 24.
About Sophie and Bertha and the wounded beastmen who lived there. And what happened before and after the feast.

'That was for protection, not to separate you from your parents.
'......Yeah, that's right. ............Hey, ......'

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

'...... If you're lying, you're a frog, okay?

You monkey b*tc*. ......
It's too different from the way you handled Jeannette.

'Mr. Barbara, Teresa. This is the Church of the Forty-second Ward.'

They come to the front of the church and stop.
Barbara's face was clearly tense as she looked up at the church.
He still looks uneasy, but that will soon change.

'At any rate, why don't you take a look at the actual church?

I pushed Barbara's back and let her enter the premises.
As soon as you do...

The kids who came running up to me froze when they saw Barbara.
...... Don't show your shyness.

'Oh, you guys. He's got a scary face, but he's not that bad. You can play with him as long as you don't make him angry.
'''Aha!I don't know you, sister, let's play!
What?What?No, Aashi?
''Also, this girl is a little blind right now, so please treat her with care.''

He took Teresa by the shoulders and led her towards the little girl in the church.
The little bastards are not ready. They don't know the words for discretion and restraint.

'Your eyes, do they hurt?
'Yes, ...... of ......'
'Are you all right?
'Uh-huh. ......'
'Do you want to play with me?
'''I'm good!!!'''

The little girls surrounded Teresa, holding her hand and slowly leading her towards the playground equipment.

''Oh!The playground equipment!I'll play with you then!
'I'll wait a bit, Delia!...... You'll take care of the boys over there.'
'Why not?I want to play with them too!
'It's not your plaything, plaything!

Umaro was so enthusiastic that the same playground equipment as in the District 24 church had been completed in the District 42 church.
The clove jungle, a horizontal rotating playground equipment that looked like a combination of a spinning jungle gym and a coffee cup, and a vertical swinging box that looked like a smaller version of a Viking at an amusement park.
Surely, if Delia had her way, it would turn into a screaming machine in an instant. The kids would cry.


Bertina came in front of the crowded kids and warned them in her usual gentle but stern voice.

''Before we play, let's greet each other first!

I realized that I hadn't done that yet, when she pointed it out.
I don't think I'll be a good parent. I don't like kids in the first place.

''Well, everyone. Let's greet each other.

Taking over Bertina's words, Ginette calls out to the kids.

'Let's go!
'''' Good morning! ''''

...... Hey.
Didn't one adult in a white sissy outfit just say something different?
You should set a better example. I'm sorry it took me so long to persuade Barbara and the others and make the popcorn, so I'm really sorry I'm running later than usual, but please don't stop being an example to me.

'So, Delia, Norma. Can I ask you to take care of the kids until breakfast is ready?
'I'll leave them to you.'
'Yes!I'll show them that I'm the strongest!
'Norma. Take care of that biggest kid, too.'
'...... That one's out of my jurisdiction.'

Turning her gaze away from Delia, Norma begins to fend off the team of young girls.
'Well, these kids can keep up with Delia's power, so that's good.

'Yashiro-san. That girl is ......?'

Bertina looks at Teresa and mutters.
Bertina heard about Teresa yesterday.
I had a favor to ask her.

'Are you sure you're blind?
'I heard you're blind.
'No, I'm not. ......'

It wasn't the current situation that Bertina wanted to hear about.

'Are you sure she'll be able to see?

That's the answer I came up with after exchanging opinions with Regina.

'Oh. I think there is a high probability that she will recover.

With proper treatment and care, yeah.

'So, in the meantime, can you take care of him at the church?
'Of course that's fine, but ...... are you sure you want to do that?It's only temporary.

What I asked Bertina to do was to provide what is commonly called 'temporary childcare'.
While Barbara is working and not available to Teresa, she will take care of her in a safe church, and at the same time, she will treat her here.

Teresa's eyesight is impaired due to vitamin deficiency caused by extreme malnutrition.
However, she has not completely lost her sight.
After Delia vs. Barbara, Regina examines her and finds that Teresa's eyes have a good chance of healing.

Leaving the treatment and prescription of medication to the professionals, I was told to secure a place where Teresa could safely concentrate on her treatment.
In Japan, I would have looked for a proper facility or a large hospital, but I didn't want to leave Teresa in a lonely place, as she had been waiting for her sister's return all alone.
So, the church.
Here, she could hear too much noise all the time, and Bertina would be there.

Besides, I'm sure the kids here would make good friends for Teresa.
It's been proven in the 24th Ward Church.

'When you get your sight back, you can stay with Uelar, or if you want, you can come visit us.
'Yes. The Church is always ready to receive you.

Bertina smiled, relieved to hear that Teresa's eyes would be healed.
It's a lot of work, but I'm sure Bertina will pull it off. I'm sure ...... you'll be rewarded handsomely.

'The lord will pay for all those expenses!
'......Why do you think so much and only say such things ......?

Because girls are like that, right?

'I'll pay for your treatment, but I'm going to take what I can get from District 41.
'That part's fine. I'll take care of it.

District Forty-One Beauty City Project.
A portion of the profits from that will go to District 42. It's an idea fee.
You'll get more than enough profit to pay for it, so just give us the money. Ricardo has no right of veto.

'Kyahahahaha, girl, girl!That's great!That's great, koree!You're amazing!
'Noooo, you little brat!Teresa's calling for Arshi!I'll be right back. ......, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa!I'm not sure what you're doing, but I'm sure you'll be fine.
'Hmmm,......, first of all, you need to educate yourself on language.'

Seeing the newcomer bustling about. I'm not sure what to do.
I averted my eyes from ...... them. ............ That smile of Bertina's ...... is still scary no matter how many times I see it. ...... ......Barbara, hang in there.
