Chapter 280 : Going To Bed
As planned, tonight’s dinner was the beef stew Ester’s parents made.
Kazuul-san seemed to like it a lot. He refilled his bowl many times.
When I asked him why he ate so much, he said that he would get hungry whenever he used his ‘Tamer’s Blessing’ Gift.
I remembered that he sometimes ate white bread while driving. I was wondering why he was so thin even though he eats so much, but now I know the reason.
His Gift seems to be unique because it makes you hungry instead of needing mana to activate.
After we finished our dinner, we took turns taking baths on the second floor of my container house.
By the way, I built walls with earth magic surrounding the bathtub and a roof because it’s getting tough to take a bath in an open-air bath every day.
Celine and Nicola were the first ones to use the bath. Ester was the second person to use it, and I was the third.
As always, Ester didn’t want to take a bath with Nicola, but I can say that she has grown since she didn’t ask me to take a bath with her.
As for Kazuul-san, he didn’t want to take a bath. He said that wiping his body with a wet towel was enough for him, so I filled his bucket with hot water and let him wipe his body outside near his carriage.
After taking a bath, we relaxed in the living room while having tea for about two hours, and then we decided to go to bed early since we planned to continue traveling at sunrise until dark tomorrow.
「Alright guys, let’s go to sleep now, shall we?」(Celine)
Nicola, Ester, and I, who were lying down on the carpet, stood up as Celine called out to us.
Currently, there’s only one bedroom in my container house which is Nicola and my room. Other than that, there’s the toilet, the living room, and the kitchen.
Celine and Ester planned to sleep in the living room with mattresses, so I needed to make another room for Kazuul-san.
However, when I told him that I would make him a room, he shook his head.
「No, you don’t need to. It’s very attractive to sleep under the same roof as beautiful young ladies, but I’ll sleep outside with my horses.」(Kazuul)
「Eh? Are you sure…?」(Mark)
I want him to get a good rest tonight since he had been driving all day today and had to drive for the entire day again tomorrow.
「Kazuul-san, you don’t have to hesitate. Building another room is as easy as breathing for Mark. Right, Mark?」(Celine)
「Yup. I can do it in a few minutes. Besides, it won’t take much of my mana, so don’t worry about it.」(Mark)
「Hahaha! No, it’s not what you think. I choose to sleep outside because I want to. I usually sleep with my horses. If I do so, they will wake up with less fatigue the next morning.」(Kazuul)
「Ah, is that one of your Gift’s features?」(Mark)
「Exactly. Well then, good night, everyone. See you the next morning.」(Kazuul)
Kazuul waved at us, grabbed his coat, and went outside.
「If that’s the case, it can’t be helped then.」(Celine)
「I think I will prepare delicious food for him the next morning for breakfast.」(Mark)
「Great idea! Alright then, let’s sleep before it’s too late.」(Celine)
As soon as Celine got up from her seat, Nicola clung to her waist.
「Celine onee-chan, I want to sleep together with you!」(Nicola)
「Ah, now that I think about it, it’s been a while since I slept together with Nicola-chan. Alright then. Let’s sleep together!」(Celine)
「Since Nicola-chan is going to sleep with Celine, then… Umm… Mark, can you make room for me?」(Ester)
Ester asked me while fidgeting. It seems that she doesn’t want to sleep with Nicola in the same room.
Her intuition is sharp as always.
「Of course. You want to see me do it?」(Mark)
Ester smiled at me. She really loves to see me doing something with magic.
First I made an extra room next to the living room, and then I made a table, a chair, and a bed with earth magic. After that, I took out a mattress from my Item Box and put it on the bed.
「Whoaa… I’ve seen you using earth magic many times, but it still amazes me!」(Ester)
「I’m glad you like it. Well then, I’m going to my own room. Have a good sleep tonight.」(Mark)
「Un! Mark, you too. Good night~!」(Ester)
I went to my room, changed into my pajamas, and tried to sleep while remembering my experience in the Schultria Village.
