, so I suggest that we rest for today!]

Although we were the ones who initiated the attack this time, after avoiding most other monster encounters as we travelled, the sun was beginning to set so we are stopping to camp for the night.

I also did stuff like setting up Beacons along the way, Shisuha ended up laying the beatdown on monsters we come across occasionally, but nothing particularly troubling has happened so far.

It’s very possible for me to continue with our journey through the night using my Magic Carpet and Map App combo, but now that Noru has brought up the point of Mofutto being with us, so it’s better to not push on too roughly.

[Mufufu, it feels like I’ll never get sick of our Food.]

[It’s so nice to be able to eat such delicious food even when we are out in the wild like this.
How glad I am for Food to be R rarity.]

[Never feeling bad about it no matter how many we get.]

[Indeed… Though I do think we have been depending on it alot… Hrーmm.]

I took out a Camp Set, and served out the Foods with us surrounding the campfire.

Various kinds of food came popping out, ranging from piping hot steak to soft fluffy plain omelettes.

I wouldn’t mind eating the Gacha Food all day every meal, but if the whole party ate the Food for all 3 meals everyday I would run out in no time at all so I have been avoiding doing that when we were living in town.

I do think the Food being R is a good thing, but I also feel conflicted from feeling happiness from the R rarity… Wanting more Rs and SRs has been all the rage for me lately.
Maybe it’s just me trying to comfort myself when I don’t get anything better?

[We were attacked by a Minotauros back then, doesn’t look like it’s going to happen this time.]

[Yep.
I do see some on the Map App when I widen the range, but none of them are close enough to be of any danger to us.]

A look at the Map App shows red dots scattered around the area.
But they are all a fair distance away from our campsite, so it’s safe to assume they won’t just outright approach us.

It was decided that me and Noru would take turns as the nightwatch as we slept.
Estel and Shisuha are magic users, and are more easily affected by things like exhaustion so I’m letting them get proper sleep.

I was told to sleep in the tent as well, but there would be too much skin contact with 3 people sleeping inside.
So I courteously declined and slept outside in my sleeping bag.

=====

It is the 3rd day after we departed, we have safely arrived at Brunne.

It’s nice that nothing special happened.
I set up 5 Beacons as well, and am glad that I had just enough.


It’s been a while since we were last here, the atmosphere is much more relaxed and there really are alot less people here compared to the capital.
Maybe it was a better choice to live here instead?

We have arrived at Brunne time to buy a house is what I’d like to say… but we should at least pay a visit to the Adventurers’ Guild first.

We’ll be staying in Brunne for awhile, so it’s only proper I inform the guild about my temporary return.

[Ah, Grin-san.
It’s been a while.]

[…..Uooh!? Wh, who the heck are you!?]

After arriving and entering the Adventurers’ Guild, a certain middle aged man whom I recognise caught my eye.
It was Grin-san, the first adventurer I met in this world.

I called out to him from behind, as he was eyeing the requests on the request board.

He yelped and took a step back in surprise after turning around to face me.

…Am I really that forgettable as a person… that’s somewhat sad.
Feels like I’m the only one treating him like a buddy, it’s the feeling of “I remember him, he doesn’t remember me”.
Which is still sad.

[….Nn? That weird looking weapon and that pot lid… And that girl with you, You’re Okura aren’t you!?]

[Ah, yes, it’s me.]
(TL Note: Diooooooooo!)
(ED Note: Itsa me! Ma*io!)

Oh, looks like he remembered.

Why’d he have to remember me this way? From seeing Bar, Pot Lid and Noru who was with me.

You wouldn’t really find anybody else with such equipment but still…

[You’ve changed way too much… I pretty much didn’t recognize you at a glance.
You coulda at least taken off your helm.]

[Ah, you’re right.
But have I really changed that much?]

[Well your strangeness certainly hasn’t changed one bit…]

I totally forgot I was wearing a helm until he pointed it out.
Little wonder he didn’t recognize me.
Though, I’m glad that I wasn’t forgotten.

[Your party sure has increased in size eh.]

[That’s right.
I got 2 new members to join me after parting ways with you previously Grin-san.
Meet Estel the mage and Shisuha the priestess.]

[I heard about the mage, but a priestess too!?]

Grin-san took a gander at the girls who were behind me.

I wasn’t able to give him my regards previously when I left for the capital, as he was out on a request.

Estel registered to become an adventurer over here so he probably heard about her from Mana-san.

When I introduced the two to him, he was quite surprised to hear that there is a priestess on my party.
It’s just that thing with mages being a rare sight, as you don’t see many priests around either.

[I’m Estel.
Nice to meet you Oji-san]


(ED Note: uncle really doesn’t work in this sorts of contexts…)

[O, Oji-san…]

Estel greeted Grin-san with a smile, but he cringed slightly from being called an Oji-san.

…..Even I thought he was more of a middle aged man, perhaps he is one of those “younger than he looks” types?

[Nice to meet you, I am Shisuha・Alvi.]

[――ah, ni, nice to meet you too…]

Shisuha greeted him next with her soft smile.

The same Grin-san who was being greeted, was at a loss for words as he stared at her face straight on.
He stutters on his reply, then suddenly pulls me away from the girls.

His face and ears were slightly flushed.

[Wh, what’s the matter?]

[O, oi! What’s up with that pretty lady!?]

[Eh, ah, I just got to know her normally though…]

[Kuh… being in a party with such a beauty… What a lucky guy you are.]

He was keeping his voice down as he conversed with me so that the girls don’t hear us.
Apparently Shisuha’s beautiful outward appearance stole his heart.

Despite all three girls being really good looking, Noru keeps her face concealed while Estel appears too youthful.
On the other hand Shisuha’s face was fully visible and looks to be in her early twenties.

Any normal grown man would react to her among the three.
In the eyes of outsiders I’m in quite the enviable position, even I think so myself.

But the outsiders wouldn’t know that the girls all have their share of “defects”… Shisuha’s also the type who would crush monster faces with a smile on her face.

[So, what have you returned here from the capital for?]

[I’m thinking about buying a house.
It’s just so expensive in the capital so I was thinking of buying one here…]

After we were done with the greetings, he asked for the reason of my return to Brunne with a wondrous look on his face.

It might be because so few people return after going to the capital.

[Ahー, of course it’s expensive there… Eh, Oi! By house… you mean you intend to live together with those girls?]

[Yeah? That’s the plan.]

[…that’s somewhat amazing in many ways.]

At first he showed understanding to me wanting to buy a house, then his shock at my intentions caused him to react in an interesting way.

Nn? Is it really that surprising for me to be living together with Noru and the others?

…come to think of it the notion of “1 guy living together with 3 girls under one roof” actually sounds amazing.
But regardless of the reality in my relationship with the girls, it’s beginning to sound like a bad idea to spread this information.

I should avoid telling too many people about this.
