Chapter 4-34 : The Current Situation Of The Perverted Son-In-Law And The Troublesome Neighboring Territory (part 1)
After listening to Josephine’s long explanation, Chloe put her thumb and index finger on her chin, thinking.
「Hmm… I see… It will definitely be the biggest and the most beautiful cathedral in this kingdom for sure. However, it won’t be cheap, naturally.」(Chloe)
「Umm, Lady Chloe, how much do you think it will cost…?」(Josephine)
「To build a building this magnificent… I think we’ll need about two hundred thousand gold coins.」(Chloe)
「T, two hundred… THOUSAND!?!?」(Josephine)
Josephine’s face turned pale. She never thought that the cathedral she designed would cost that much money.
「I will have to say… this is too much.」(Chloe)
「Ugh, I knew it… But, Lady Chloe, Lady Mylia said I didn’t have to worry about the budget, so…」(Josephine)
「Eh? …My-li-a~ is that true?」(Chloe)
「Ahaha… Onee-chan, I told you I can make money anytime I want. Let’s give Josephine-san the freedom to build what she wants.」(Mylia)
「Hahh… I had a feeling you would waste so much money, but… Oh, well. This is your territory, so you can do whatever you want with it, but please think about budgets next time, okay?」(Chloe)
「Hold on… Does it mean that you’re not against it?」(Josephine)
「Yeah. It’s a huge amount of money, but I agree. Please build the best cathedral in this kingdom, will you?」(Chloe)
「O, Of course!! Oh, Goddess Chloe, thank you! I won’t let you down!」(Josephine)
Unable to hide her joy, Josephine kneeled before Chloe and raised her arms.
「Uhh… You are Goddess Celis’ believer, right…? …Hahh… I wonder if she will really be able to carry out this duty as a construction engineer… 」(Chloe)
Chloe whispered to herself and sighed.
「Josephine-san, I will lend you ten villagers who know a lot about buildings and construction. They will be working under your command.」(Chloe)
「Thank you very much!」(Josephine)
「Oh, right. Since you have a magic bag on your waist, that means you can use magic, right?」(Chloe)
「I can, but I’m not as strong as Lady Mylia, obviously.」(Josephine)
「Ah, my sister is extraordinary after all! Not only is she the strongest, but also the cutest little witch in the world!」(Chloe)
「A, Anyway, I may need your magic ability when Mylia is busy. I will tell you when I need your help.」(Chloe)
「Understood! As I just said, I’m not as strong as Lady Mylia, but I graduated from the Magic Department of The Royal Girls’ Academy with excellent grades! I promise I won’t let you down!」(Josephine)
「Ah, so you are our senpai. I see. I can leave the job to you without worries then.」(Chloe)
「Yeah, you can count on me!」(Josephine)
In this way, Josephine, the granddaughter of the Celis Church’s cardinal joined the Atwood Territory development team as the construction engineer.
It had been a week since Josephine joined the development team. She had become a popular girl in the village, and thanks to her, the construction of the cathedral had made great progress.
As for Mylia, she was busy helping Bonnie and Chloe develop the village by clearing trees in the forest to expand the area, supplying materials, and leveling the ground. She also hunted monsters to reduce their number and sell their materials to make money.
First of all, in order to turn the small village into a big town, they needed to expand the area.
About twenty men were assigned to cut down trees in the forest at first. They were not by any means amateurs. They were all professional lumberjacks.
However, because the trees in the monster territory were all big and thick, it took a while for each of them to cut down a tree.
Therefore, Mylia decided to help them.
（Alright, let’s do it~!）
Mylia created a blade of wind with wind magic and started cutting down the trees one by one. The moment the trees fell, Mylia stored them in her magic bag, so from the lumberjacks’ perspectives, it looked like the trees were disappearing one by one as soon as Mylia cut them down.
（The trees around here are sturdy. I think these logs can be used as good building materials. I hope Onee-chan will be happy~）
After cutting down trees for a while, Mylia had a considerable amount of logs in her magic bag.
It was enough to build a few houses and a few big buildings like inns and restaurants.
After that, Mylia had to hunt monsters who were angry because their forest was being cut down.
The number of monsters that came every time Mylia and the lumberjacks cut down trees in the forest was quite large.
「Here they come!」
「As always. They’re so many!」
「Lady Mylia, the monsters are here!」(lumberjacks)
「Alright. Please step back.」(Mylia)
Mylia walked slowly toward the monsters while the lumberjacks were retreating.
They actually wanted to help Mylia, but they knew how strong she was. They thought they would only drag Mylia down if they joined the fight, so they chose to obey Mylia’s order and hide.
There were various monsters coming to attack; Great Wolves, Dabolas, Horned Serpents, and many more. They all looked so angry and ready to kill humans in their sight.
「Here I go! Wind Blades!」(Mylia)
However, they were not a problem for Mylia at all.
She used wind blades to cut their heads off one by one.
She could have killed all of them at once with Explosion Magic, but it would damage their materials.
After killing all the monsters in the area where the trees were cut down, Mylia stored their corpses in her magic bag and returned to the village with the lumberjacks.
Today as well she was able to get a huge amount of monster materials that she could sell in the materials shops in the royal capital later.
Being able to get so many monster materials with little effort was a good thing for Mylia because she needed money to build the biggest and the most beautiful cathedral in the kingdom.
