I was sold at the lowest price C296: Day Off
The securing of the magicraft mining site and the capture of the fortress of the Raja Empire have been completed. We were able to confirm the growth of the trainees, and the military reinforcement of the Amurian Union army proved to be going well.
In the midst of all this, Jean was unusually considerate and said.
“Tomorrow we’ll have a day off. I’ll give you all some extra spending money so you can go play.”
It was nice not to have to think about work for a day, but Jean’s use of candy and whips is so blatant. It’s abrupt, and I wish he’d think of a better balance.
All of us riders and crew members are on vacation, but Rafishal and the other mechanics don’t have any time off. Jean told them to take a day off once in a while, but all the mechanics said no, they don’t have time for that. I wondered how hardworking they were, but according to Jean, they were having so much fun at their current jobs that they felt it was a waste of time to take a break.
“By the way, is it okay that I got some pocket money too……?”
Jean was so generous that he even gave some pocket money to Nagisa and Yukiha, who were not officially members of the group.
“It’s okay, you’ve been working a lot. You deserve it.”
“I see. Then I’ll take it with open arms.”
Nagisa seemed to be somewhat pleased, but I don’t think she’s that much in need of money. I wonder if she’s not getting paid by the government.
“Yuta, let’s go out somewhere after this. It’s our vacation, let’s just hang out.”
“I don’t have any plans, so that’s fine.”
The moment I answered that, a voice of protest came from behind me.
“I want to go out with you too!”
Nanami said sulkily, as she heard our conversation.
“The more people, the more fun.”
Nanami took my words to heart and invited Farma and Himari to come along with her.
“I feel like a big sister taking my sisters out.”
Linnecarlo complained as she watched Nanami, Farma and Himari wandering the streets and giggling.
“If you’re going to complain, why didn’t you just stay in Fugaku?”
Alana pointed out to Linnecarlo.
“It can’t be helped. We only have one day of vacation.”
For some reason, Alana and Linnecarlo came along as well. Like Linnecarlo said, we only have one day off, so it’s not a bad idea to have fun with everyone, but Nagisa is in a bad mood.
“What, you’re hungry?”
“No, I’m not. I was just thinking that it would be nice to go out alone with Yuta for the first time in a while.”
Nagisa wanted to go out alone with me for the first time in a while. Well, it’s true that Nagisa and I have been going out together since we were kids, so I guess she wanted to get back into that mood.
“I can understand Nagisa’s feelings, but everyone is an important friend, so please bear with me here.”
“Do you know how I feel?”
“Of course I do. You wanted to enjoy the company of your childhood friend for the first time in a long time, didn’t you?”
“….You still don’t get it, do you?”
“What is it then?”
“……Nothing. Look, Alana and Linnecarlo are getting into an argument. Shouldn’t you stop them?”
Before I knew it, Alana and Linnecarlo were arguing with each other. I hurriedly went to stop them.
