We are sorry to inform you that we are closed today due to the owner's reasons.

".........what the hell is this?
I came to the inn in the morning to surprise Kara a little bit, since I had no audience today and had some time to spare, but I was surprised by a piece of paper posted in front of the inn, but the opposite was true.
'Huh! Are you kidding me? I didn't hear that, that's what I'm talking about!
Did you forget to tell him? The first thing that comes to mind is to go to the guild to find out what's really going on.
'Liricaaaaaaaaaaaa! If you're there, come out!
An unfamiliar man's voice, calling my name, echoed through the guild.
The adventurers who gave the man who shouted loudly a glance at me all froze like statues in surprise.
''Well, well, well, my king, what can I do for you today?
The man we all know so well walks up to King Kyle Ochrun, a man to whom all adventurers would have frozen in place.
The tall man looks up at us, his muscles are as hardened as steel, and his scarred face speaks volumes about his life. A gentle look lurks in the depths of his scarred face.
The muscular body is squeezed into the suit like a tight fit, and the bow tie which seems to have been matched with the suit is strangely cute, and may have given cuteness to the stern appearance. If you're a child, you might cry if you see him/her, but on the contrary, he or she is popular among children.
The man who gives you a sense of tenderness within such a stern face is the guild master 'Pionaire Lumen'.
'Oh, Pio! Is Lyrica there?!
You don't have to be so loud, I'm sure he can hear you... here, right there.
Your Majesty, shut up, Aika froze in her tracks.
I walked up to the king with a startled and hardened Aika in my arms.
'Hm? Sorry about that. Aika, I'm sorry.
Puffing and puffing, the king patted Aika. Aika, who had frozen in surprise, was reactivated by being touched by the King-sama.
''.........! Mu~kokuo~. I'm surprised~
Aika is swollen after a reboot. It's kind of cheeky, although it shows that she's angry by filling her pudgy cheeks with air.
Sorry, sorry, don't get so angry. You'll ruin your pretty face! Besides, if Aika doesn't like me, I'm in no position to do it either.
The king's attempt to get in Aika's good mood somehow seemed to ease the adventurers' tension somewhat.
'And then? Why is the King here so early in the morning?
'Oh! That's right! Where the hell is Kara? The inn was closed.
Hmm? Where did little Kara go? Wasn't the king with us yesterday, I think?
'Didn't I tell you yesterday? He said the inn would be closed tomorrow because he had somewhere to go.
I'm pretty sure I said that. Let's see.........
"It's tomorrow, but well, it's all over the place, so you know what I mean, right?
'Huh. I've got somewhere to go tomorrow, so I'm closing the inn in the morning.'
"Well, okay. --Your gulp--
'Huh. Lyrica, that's what I'm talking about.
'Yes, and my husband has told me about it.
Yes, well, please. I'll put a sign in front of the inn just in case.
Yeah. That's what I'm saying. I don't care who's listening.
"No, you don't hear me, do you? Did he really say that?
'You said it. 'That's because the King will give you a live answer.'
Hm? Was it? So where is he? I don't think it's right for Kara to close the inn, but...
'Huh? Don't you know?
...What do you mean by that?
The king looks at me with a look of confusion.
"You know what day it is, don't you?
"? What's going on? The Nativity is a long way off, and there shouldn't be any special events, right?
'Huh. It's Kara's birthday today, birthday, birthday, day!
He tells the king with a great sigh.
After a few seconds, the second loud scream of the day echoed through the guild.
Are you settling in?
We came to the Garden of Delight with the king, who was complaining about what was going on. I know the owner of the shop as we often see each other through guild business.
I heard it was Kara's birthday? That's new to me. If I had known, I would have celebrated greatly...
Well, Kara isn't the type of girl to go off on a tangent like that.
But where's Kara, it's her birthday and she's gone?
'Oh, that's right, Kara always goes to her ex on this day, right?
"...What? I'm sorry. I'm sorry, I'm having a bit of an auditory hallucination. I'm sorry, could you repeat that, please?
''So, Kara, I heard you're meeting your ex today. It's like he's telling you to see him himself, too, and that's pretty much a no-brainer, isn't it?
The king has gone limp. It's a bad sign.
But I don't know if it's a lie or not, since the information is from my husband.
I'm going to...
What is it?
'I'm coming to see you!!!!! I'll get the story out of you!
We and my son chased after the King who suddenly started to run.
Oh, Your Majesty? My husband is still at work!
