“Right, so why don’t you dual wield swords?”
“Two, swords…!? I would be twice as strong!”
Simple girl, two-sword style isn’t so simple. There’s various matters to it, like physical strength.
But just to have her try it, I lent her the golem blade that was my reserve weapon.
However, it didn’t work out well when she tried swinging it.
“Hmm, I’m still not used to it. Fighting with just one sword is ingrained in me… ah.”
During one of her swings, the golem blade broke in half. It was practically new, but it just suddenly happened… is it one of Sion’s effects?
Looks like two-sword style’s impossible for her. Sion seems to be a rather jealous magic sword.
It’d probably break anything that doesn’t have [Indestructible] or something similar.
“I-I broke Master’s magic sword…!”
“Yeah. Don’t worry about it though. I’ll bill you for that separately.”
“Y-you’re demanding money for it even though you just said to not worry!?”
“You’re rich, it’s not like you need to be frugal.”
“In that case, I-I’ll pay with my body!”
The moment shikina declared that, Meat nonchalantly stood between shikina and I.
“Umm… senpai? Why?”
“It is my burden to bear, I cannot trouble my house!”
I patted Meat on the head and poked shikina on the forehead.
“Don’t sell your body so cheaply. I’ll let you off until you’re successful in your career. If you don’t want to trouble your house, make sure to compensate me yourself.”
“Meat, you have no complaints either, yeah?”
“Hmm? What’s up?”
“If you make a move on someone, I think there is already someone you should do so for first.”
I-is she talking about Rokuko? She is my partner, after all.
After that, we went hunting for an iron golem for shikina to carry back under the guise of training.
“[Body Enhancement]—! Fuuuunu!”
I honestly expected it to be impossible for her to carry back the human-sized lump of iron, but she was able to shoulder its weight through the help of her skill. She had to re-cast it every thirty seconds though.
Even Gozoh, a dwarf, has to use a cart. Skills are amazing.
… Maybe it’s also possible that shikina’s simplicity is amazing?
“Well, this and that happened, but we figured out that it’ll be useful for us to acquire a massive amount of clothing. Also, I should be able to push off Gozoh’s iron golem hunting to shikina.”
Rokuko came to my room, so I told her about what happened today.
By the way, shikina collapsed out of exhaustion after bringing the iron golem back out of the dungeon.
As expected, using the [Body Enhancement] skill in rapid succession like that was hard on her body. I asked Ichika about it, she said that normally it’s a bad thing to not allow for some cooldown time. I decided to let her rest for the day.
“Hey, Kehma. When you, umm, when you saw shikina’s clothes tear up… y-you didn’t get excited, right?”
“Nope, not at all. She doesn’t have an ounce of seductiveness to her at all, unfortunately. Even though the base materials are so nice…”
Yeah. Blonde elf, (former) female knight, b.o.o.bs, b.u.t.t, and great legs… even though they’re all so good, her mouth ruins it all.
She’d be cute if she just shut up.
I took another look at Rokuko.
Blonde hair, a doubly tasty existence for being able to be big despite being a loli right now, white knee socks going up her legs, and well-shaped feet. She even has a cute red tint on the sole of her foot (important).
By the way, what I like about feet—the soles in particular—is the [Padding] portion. The place that looks like tiny meatb.a.l.l.s on cats and dogs.
I love rounded toes and the plump area right where they meet the foot—ah. I got caught up by the seeing them up so close. Got off topic there… I really can’t overstate how squishy and great they look.
“Rokuko also has some great materials~”
“What, so I have something you don’t like as well…? Out with it.”
“No, not really, Rokuko.”
Honestly, I’m not dissatisfied at all. She’s adorable and I don’t dislike her slightly foolish personality.
She’s also a straightforward, hardworking person. Her good points have been increasing lately, too.
There’s a difference in our lifespans, but that just means she’d look young for my entire life yeah? I’d feel guilty for dying first, but my time will come when it comes.
And above all, she’s said that she likes me.
Yep, to be honest, I like Rokuko too.
… However, she has a super scary Onee-san who comes as a package deal.
I’m pretty sure that Haku-san will be watching me so long as I’m inside the empire.
In that case, it might be a good idea for me to leave the country. I’ve also had Wakoku on my mind for a while.
“Hey, Rokuko… want to go on a trip to another country this time?”
“Eh, Kehma? Are you alright? Do you have a fever? Have you been sleeping?”
“… Is me saying something like that so strange?”
“Yeah! Kehma, you don’t even leave your bed if you can avoid it. There’s no way you’d say something like going to another country without a good reason.”
A smile appeared on my face. She reeeeally gets me.
“Right, maybe I’m feeling a bit off because of that stupid elf. Maybe I’ll turn in for the day.”
“Ah, want to use the Godly Comforter then? I can come too if it’s right now.”
“Using it without you there is scary…”
By the way, I tried out having a goblin use the Godly comforter on its own as an experiment. It dried up and died.
Even though Rokuko said that it’d be alright so long as she gave permission.
According to her, she said that she didn’t want anyone other than me to use it… but it’s so dangerous that I don’t want to use it so easily.
“Hey, could we sleep together today?”
“… Separate beds. Bring your own futon.”
“By the way, Kehma, please tell me about what that OOO thing the elf said is~”
“Mmm, don’t say that word, it’s vulgar. Particularly in front of Haku-san, that’s definitely a no.”
If you really want to know about it, ask Ichika… No, I might get killed because of Ichika then? Rokuko, please stay pure, please.
