But then, she stared at me.

「Mark… do you go outside?」


「You smell like a forest」

「E, A, Aaahh… That’s….」

Eh? She found out by smell?

I was panicked.

「Fuun… Well, I won’t ask you any further though.
But, don’t make your parents worry, okay?」

Then, she continued devouring the food in front of her.

Do adventurers have a good sense of smell…? Nah, maybe it’s just her…

After that, I helped the dining hall until it got dark, so I decided to plant the herbs tomorrow.

The next morning.
I woke up and went to the backyard of my house.

I thought it was necessary to observe whether the herbs would actually grow or not, so I decided to plant them here instead of in the vacant lot.

By the way, as always, Nicola was still sleeping soundly at this time.

I decided to make a little fence first.
I made a lot of mini stone pillars with a height of about 20 cm surrounding the spot where I wanted to make the flowerbed at.

When I focused on making the flowerbed, Celine called out from behind.

「Good morning, Mark.
Are you planting something?」

It was still early in the morning, so she hadn’t yet worn the black dress that emphasized her boobs.
She wore a loose white dress now.

Is she trying to seduce me with a ‘gap moe’? Fufun, but too bad, it won’t work for me!

*/ gap moe is a term that refers to a contradiction in exhibited characteristics that people find cutely attractive.
For example, a girl without glasses, suddenly wears glasses.
In Celine’s case, she usually wears black dress, but now she wears white.

I’m planting this」

I decided to not hide it from her, so I showed her segilia grasses I picked at the forest yesterday.

「This is… the herbs that grow in the kobold territory? Ah, I see now」

「Yeah, so that’s why you smelled forest on me yesterday.
But, I was with a guardian that time, you know? So, can you keep it a secret?」

「Okay~ But, as I said yesterday, don’t make your parents worry.
Well then, go ahead plant that herbs.
I wanna watch you plant it」

I knew Celine would keep this a secret.

I planted the herbs in the flowerbed I made.
It was done quickly because I just had to bury the roots.
And then I started injecting my mana into the soil.

When I was doing that, I asked Celine.

「How do people use this herbs?」

「The easiest way is to turn it into an ointment by grinding it.
Other than that, you can make a potion by grinding it, mixing it with water, and injecting light attribute mana into it」

Potion, huh.

For an RPG player, potions has more dreams than ointment.

If the cultivation is successful, maybe I’ll try making it.

After a while, all segila grasses were planted in the flowerbed.

「With this, the planting is done.
After this, I just have to observe if it will grow or not」

「I see.
It looks like the result won’t come out soon.
Well then, I’ll take a bath now.
Mark, can you wash my back?」

「I’m sorry, dear customers.
The bathhouse is self-service at our inn~」

That’s too bad~ Fufu」

After that, Celine walked to the bathhouse.
Then, suddenly I heard Nicola’s voice in my head.

『Chicken onii-chan, why you kept refusing? “Bathing together with a nice-body woman” is a child’s privilege, you know?』

I looked up and found Nicola was looking at me from the window on the second floor while grinning.

Well I’m sorry I’m a chicken!
