jacent to the wall.
It was arranged so that Till and I are on the left side, and Kamsin is on the right side.

 Then, Apcarles appeared.

“Mmm, you want help with the water?”

“We will help you.”

 Panamera and Arte, from the other side of the moat.
made a commotion as the two adult Apcarles appeared.

“ To think that I would see the famed Apcarles here… But why in such a place?”

“This is truly great.
I’ve never seen one.”

 Suddenly, three adolescent Apcarles appeared and answered Panamera’s question.

“We live in the back of this place,”

“Master Van will give you a nice dinner.”

“I’m Van’s wife.
He is my father’s son-in-law”

 The kids were mouthing off, huh.
Also, it looks like Ladapriola was somewhere among them.

“Well, well.
So you’ve already taken an Apcarle as a wife? Why weren’t we informed of this?”

Oh no…

 A misunderstanding has occurred.

 I denied it, looking at Ladapriora with a glance.

“We’re not engaged.
I told your father, Ladavesta, you know?’

 As I told her that, Ladapriola disappeared under the water, glaring back at me.


“He bullied little Ladapriola.”

 Although many undue accusations were being thrown at me, I responded calmly.

“If you’re going to complain, I won’t give you any meat today.”


“I’m sorry!”

“I love Van.
Give me meat.”

 The moment I pulled out my trump card, the childish Apcarles changed their attitude.
And for some reason, Ladapriola chimed in again at the end there.

 When I tried to look her way, I tried to be subtle, but that was definitely Ladapriola’s voice.

 Kids are so innocent, aren’t they? I looked at the adult Apcarles with a sense of camaraderie… though I was also 8 years old.

Note: Real talk, what happened to his older persona?)

“Then I’m sorry, but I need your help.
We aren’t able to remove the lids with are strength.”

 As I said this, the Apcarles nodded and replaced us.

 When we crossed the bridge to join Panamera and Arte, they were looking at me with astonished eyes.

”…You have Apcarles following you? They are even said to be a phantom race…”

“Those girls were so cute…”

 Laughing at the second voice, I instructed the Apcarles to pull the kid off.
They did it with ease.

 Immediately afterwards, I heard the sound of water draining from the moat.

“Now! Close it!”


 As if on cue, the Apcarles closed the lid.
After the noise of rushing water faded away, a fidgeting Panamera turned to me.

”What was that? What happened?”

 She sounded quite concerned.
That being said, I’d say Panamera was surprisingly composed.
I thought she would have had a bigger reaction.

“It’s a routine process necessary in our sewage system.
The toilets installed in each building each have a series of holes about five meters deep, and when water is flushed from the tank at the top of the toilet, the excrement flows to the bottom.
The bottom part of the toilet is connected to a large pipe at the bottom, so if it’s left as it is, it gradually becomes smelly.
More importantly, if left alone, it could sow the seeds for a village-wide epidemic.”

“Well, um, yeah.
I guess it would be bad if people got sick.”

 Panamera made a conflicted face.

“Well, we want to get rid of this undesirable excrement, right? So, I installed the pipes at an incline and pour water into them periodically.
That was what happened earlier, by the way.
The water, which gained momentum from the slope, thoroughly washes the pipes.”

“This water, huh? Where’s does that water go? Don’t tell me you return it to the moat?”

“No, we’re installing an underground cavity in front of the village at an angle.
Incidentally, we are in the process of connecting pipes to the bottom of the cavity.
I’m thinking of feeding the water from that cavity into the river eventually.
It will be around one or two days until that happens, though.”


 Panamera’s face was twisted in confusion.
Well, I suppose it would be hard for a soldier to understand such a system with just a verbal explanation.

 Or maybe the explanation itself was lacking.
But it’s too much trouble to explain such a complicated system in detail.
I’ll just make a diagram of it later.

 Having decided that I headed off to complete my next task

 The life of a frontier lord is a busy one.

Note: So I am still going to translate this in my off-time.
I am still open to suggestions for new novels, though.
Also, I made a discord.
It is really shabby and I have pretty much no experience in managing a server.
But it is up, and if you want to join you can.
If you want to help with the translations please join… though you won’t get paid.
