Chapter 67: Rapidly Multiplying

Still dead, thanks to melting from the Aussie heat. 40°C weather, somebody save me! >w<
In other news, I’m recruiting for a perfectionist to help me edit. I’m not talking about grammar-Nazis (though they’re pretty useful too)  but someone who’ll make a billion edits just to make a sentence flow, so I can focus on turning JP into EN instead of EN into good EN. I promise if I find someone I like, you guys will get a revived Kookie with motivated-translation speed instead of the current zombie pace.
Note: Proofreading is NOT Editing.

Chapter 64: I’d like you to undress

Singapore was fun, I wanna go back >w<
China is less fun… terrible internet and the great firewall of china means no google drive and no editors (yeah, I know I can just give them direct access but lazy).

I’d like you to undress

“It really is huge……!”

I mutter as I look up at the giant castle spread before my eyes.
I did come to the castle once before, but I had been in a fluster back then and hadn’t been able to look at the castle in its entirety.
However, having come here by my own will, the size of that castle was evident whether I liked it or not.

“Is that so, I imagine that a normal castle would be at least this size though……”

From Aura’s perspective, a building of this size might indeed be normal for her as a former member of royalty, but as one of the masses, I felt that the magnitude was kind of wrong.

“It’s about the same as Lily’s home~!”

…..No, wait, no matter how biased you are, this can’t be compared to something like my house.
As I was feeling a little happy at hearing Lily’s remark, we were lead inside the castle by the gatekeepers.

 

“Now then, we’ll be taking your measurements so I’d like you to undress.”
“……Eh?”

After being brought inside the castle, we were split into girls and guys and made to enter separate rooms, though I was the only guy.
Inside the rooms were some maids, and those maids were rapidly helping to remove my clothes for some reason.
Without even a chance to feel embarrassed, I was stripped of all clothing but my underwear and there was nothing I could do except look at my own body in a daze as they took measurements.

 

“We will prepare clothing for you now that we have finished. Please wait a little longer.”

Shortly thereafter, the most distinguished-looking maid came up to me and spoke to me.

“……U-understood.”

I sit down on the chair that the maids had prepared for me, and set my mind on other things in order to forget the embarrassing events from a moment ago even a second faster.

 

“Aura-sama, this way.”

We were brought to a different room to Nest’s.
They treated us courteously, as though they didn’t know about Tré and I being slaves.

“……At any rate, those clothes really suit you all. Everyone looks lovely.”

A maid who was clearly older than me said as she looked at our clothing.

“Nest bought this for us~!!”

Hearing her words, Lily promptly responded, flaunting her clothing delightfully.

“By Nest-san, you mean the gentleman who came to the castle with you, correct? He has very wonderful taste……”
“If Nest heard that, I’m sure he would be pleased too.”

Even without being biased, I also think these clothes are very befitting for each one of us so hearing that makes me very happy.
I had been embarrassed back then so I unintentionally said some cruel things to Nest.

I had been told by some adventurers in the past that a man buying a slave but not touching them might be because he doesn’t like the slave.
Even if it’s inevitable with Tré because she’s still not old enough, him not laying a hand on me who is the same age as him might be that Nest really doesn’t like me. Just as I thought this, he suddenly gave me a present. Doing that, unintentionally saying some cruel words couldn’t be helped, I think……
However, even though we ended up staying in the same room for the first time in a while, he didn’t seem to have much interest in me and went to sleep just like that.
I was frustrated at that, then sad, but I didn’t really want anyone to realise that so I just went to sleep with my face hidden in my blankets.

I woke up in the middle of the night unexpectedly, and sleepily thinking that if he wouldn’t make a move then I could do it on my end, I tried to crawl into Nest’s bed. However, Tré was there already, sleeping in the embrace of Nest’s arms.
The night ended with me separating those two, but I realise that I didn’t get to ask why it happened even now.
After this party ends, I’ll ask about last night――

Those were my thoughts as I was being measured by the maids.

Chapter 63: To like men

Posting this while in transit, it’s unedited because my laptop is running out of battery but it should be readable xD

Will soon be in Singapore and get to meet all the awesome translators~ ❤

More updates to come (and more Recovery Magic Chapters cos Firebird is scheduled for the next NF chapter)


Chapter 63: To like men

“Look, then we’ll be waking up early tomorrow too so let’s sleep.”

After talking about the size of Aura’s clothes, I was pursued by the interaction with Tré and Lily who emerged next, and after finally reaching a stopping point, everyone is relaxing now.

“That’s right……”

“Eh ―!?”

Tré nodded at my words but Lily seemed to still not want to sleep and was shaking her head.

“I’m not sleepy yet.”

“Even if you say that….”

Tomorrow, we also need to head to the castle early in the morning and arrange our clothing.

I send a look to Aura for some help.

“……Sigh, I guess it can’t be helped.”

When I do, Aura who was sitting on the bed, got up and steadily walked towards Lily.

“Lily, don’t be so selfish, okay? Look, come sleep with me.”

Using a gentle tone that wouldn’t be directed at me normally, she embraces Lily.

“Mn, got it, Aura-oneechan!”

Even Lily when hugged by Aura became obedient as if her selfishness from before was a lie, and was taken to the bed that wasn’t mine.

“……”

Contrary to feeling relieved at being helped, I felt a little disappointment as I wrapped myself in the blankets and closed my eyes.

“―― Nn.”

Suddenly I felt something move inside the blanket.

In the darkness, I strained my eyes somehow and tried to look inside, then it seems like someone had crawled into my blankets.

“Is it Lily……?”

A similar thing happened in the past, and I don’t think the other two would do such a thing……

“Master……”

“!?”

However, my prediction was fruitless, the faint voice I heard coming from the blankets was Tré’s.

I gave a slightly exaggerated reaction to the situation I never expected.

“W-what……?”

At the difficult-to-imagine behaviour based on Tré until now, I ask the waking Tré while surprised.

“I-I want… To be more, more… loved by Master……”

“…..”

Pausing every few words, she firmly conveyed her feelings, and at this, I sunk into silence.

……I wonder what this means.

“Err… Again, why is that……?

As expected, I don’t understand no matter how much I ponder, so I ask Tré frankly.

“……When Master wasn’t at the guild, I heard from the adventurers……”

It’s probably when I went out for lunch.

“When a man buys a slave, it’s… For that…..”

“U-um?”

W-wait a moment?

What Tré is talking about, could it be that kind of thing?

“And so, not doing that with a slave means they like boys, or if not that then――”

Tré’s word broke off for a moment.

Tré slowly crawled upwards from under the blanket, and before I knew it, I could feel her breath on my neck.

And then, she tightly grasped my clothes, and rest her small head on my chest.

“――it means they don’t like the slave……”

The part of my clothes that was in contact with Tré’s head gradually dampens.

“……It’s alright.”

When I noticed, I was murmuring those words.

Under the blanket, as I hugged Tré’s small body, I continued murmuring many times, until Tré stopped crying――

“…………zzzzz……”

As though she was worn out from crying, Tré fell asleep around the time she stopped crying.

Laying her head on my arm, I pat Tré’s hair while she was sleeping peacefully, and also made to sleep in preparation for tomorrow.

“Alright, let’s go.”

Having woken up properly with no falling back to sleep after waking up, we finished our preparations and headed to the castle early.

Perhaps because of yesterday’s incident, I feel like Tré has started behaving a more spoiled towards me little by little.

Even now, she has been clinging to my arm this whole time.

“……”

Looking at that a little sullenly was Aura.

Incidentally, I thought she would be mad about me sleeping together with Tré this morning, but she didn’t get mad this morning.

As for why, it was because she found out about us sleeping together last night.

The reason was, I also went to sleep after Tré did, but when I thought that something was in the blankets just like with Tré, it turned out to be Aura.

Naturally, only a short time had passed after I started to drift off so I woke up immediately, but Aura’s face had reddened enough to tell even in the dark. She said “I came to bring Tré back!!” whilst controlling the volume and then returned to her own bed with Tré.

Thus, I ended up not being scolded.

“We’ve been in your care~”

“Please come again~!!”

After saying our farewells to the innkeeper, we finally made our way towards the castle.

Having come here, it shouldn’t be that far away so we should arrive shortly.

Then, we slowly started walking towards the castle, our hearts full of tension save for Lily.

By the way, just because I won’t lay a hand on my slaves doesn’t mean I like boys, okay!?

Chapter 62: Wearing the clothes is embarrassing

My microsoft office expired today, time to be less productive with translating until I get around to spending money (gasp) and updating the subscription. Less productive doesnt mean unproductive, and it will probably barely make a difference because I’m not very productive in the first place. XP

Wearing the clothes is embarrassing

“……It’s unexpectedly far.”

I wonder how long we have been following the girl in question for.
We have been brought to a street with less people walking on it than the streets from before.
We had asked her to guide us to the inn, but there were absolutely no signs of us arriving.

“We’re almost there~”

The girl says, lightly waving this way.
I feel like I’ve been hearing the same thing for a while now……

“Aura, you guys aren’t tired?”

We’ve walked quite a distance, so I dare say they should be tiring soon.
I’ve got my recovery magic though, so relieving fatigue could be done easily.

“We’re fine~!!”

However, disregarding my worries, Lily spoke with a lively voice and stretched out her hands.
Aura and Tré also appeared to remain composed, and their breathing wasn’t disturbed either.

“…….huh……?”

Having checked everyone’s state of fatigue, I once again return my gaze to the girl but she was nowhere to be found, maybe because there were so many people.

“I can’t find her.”

After that, we all looked for her but we never found that girl.

 

“……And? By the time you realised, your wallet was gone, you say?”
“…….Yes.”

Now, I was being greatly remonstrated by Aura.
The reason for that is, it seems that I had my wallet stolen by that girl from before.
Putting my wallet in my pocket so that I could take it out at any time backfired on me.

“You should put it in a harder-to-steal place!”
“Y-you are quite right……”

If I were asked when it was stolen, it would probably be when I turned around.
Although I would say there wasn’t much in the wallet, I’ve recently been in a position to earn to a certain extent, so it would be quite a large amount to normal people.
To have lost that in an instant…….
I learned firsthand that I can’t be negligent no matter how good the public order in the capital was.
This time, Aura finished without scolding me too much, as though she understood that it was probably stolen while I was concerned about them.
Fortunately, I had previously given some money to Tré so there was no trouble at the inn.

 

Having finished our discussions, we quickly found an inn by ourselves.
Despite having money, we couldn’t squander too much of it so we decided to only rent a single room for everyone.
Although I say we only rented a single room, we naturally took one with two beds, but…….

“……Haa, we can finally relax……”

Having arrived in the room, I tumbled onto the bed just like that.
Aura and Tré collapsed on the other bed.
However, it seemed like only Lily wasn’t tired yet, and she looked this way with a face that was full of composure.
And I don’t know what she was thinking, but that face was engulfed in a smile as if she had thought up something interesting.

“Take thissss!!”
“……!?”

For some reason, she came flying my way from that spot.
Flustered, I sit up and spread my arms out to catch the flying Lily.

“……Oomph.”

Although I was met with a great impact, I somehow succeeded in catching Lily and sat her down on the bed.

“Ahaha!! Fun~~!!”

Lily, who was kicking and wriggling those pretty and slender legs of hers with all her might while smiling at me to say “that was fun”, was adorable.
I-it’s not like I have any ulterior motives, okay?
No, really.

 

“Ah, come to think of it, I had something to give you.”

I address Aura and the others, who had finished entering the bath in turns.

“It’s this……”

Saying that, what I handed over was the feminine clothing I bought at the clothing store previously.
The clothes I bought at the place that sold those taboo swimsuits.

“Err, this is……?”

Tré asks timidly.

“Well, they did say that the king and them will be preparing clothes, but I thought that proper clothes might be necessary for before we go to the castle.”
“T-thank you very much……!”

Tré says her thanks with teary eyes.

“T-thank you…..”

Aura said in a small voice, making a slightly less annoyed face.

“Yayy~!!”

Lily was full of vigour as usual, and encircles me while flourishing the clothes.

“T-then maybe I should try it on for a bit……”

After she says that, Aura takes Lily and Tré with her and heads towards the bathroom.
I continued waiting in the meantime.

“I-I tried it on.”
“O-ooh……”

Aura, the first one to leave the bathroom, was obviously dressed in the clothes I bought.
Those clothes were, how should I put it, I feel like they emphasised Aura’s cuteness.
I’m saying this myself, but I might have quite the eye for clothing.

“I-it suits you.”

I normally don’t say that so, as expected, it’s embarrassing

“I-is that so? W-well, they are indeed cute clothes…….”

Aura’s face also turned red, as if wearing the new clothes was embarrassing.

“……But, why were the measurements of this so accurate, I wonder…….?”

However, that was also momentary, and Aura fixed her eyes on me.

“……”

Even if I’m asked why, I just bought that at one glance, so it was hard to answer.

“Err……”

It would be good if I could convey that smoothly one way or another, but I don’t know what to say.

“……Pervert.”

While hugging herself with her own two arms as if trying to cover her body, Aura returned to the bathroom.

 

……Next time, let’s buy some of a different size.
I pledged in my heart――

Chapter 61: After all, my face is like this

It’s April first! Kookie originally had something planned for April fools, but since Firebird is in charge of the next two chapters of No Fatigue, Kookie’s April Fools release will be delayed (hopefully you won’t be mad >w<).

In the meantime, enjoy a few more chapters of Recovery Magic before it dies again……

After all, my face is like this.

“……It’s finally in sight.”

I muttered, referring to the capital which I was able to catch in the corner of my vision.
On our way here, I met with an assortment of troubles ― I was made to run, I was attacked by a dragon ― but halfway through, I was allowed to ride in the carriage too and was able to think of it as a pleasant journey.

 

“Welcome to the capital!!”

Passing through the checking station safely, we stroll about the town capital.

“Hm, I guess we should find an inn first?”
“I suppose that’s best.”

According to the letter, the party will be held tomorrow evening.
That meant that we had time to kill before then.
For the time being, we begin to look for a place to stay for the night.

“The big brother over there~!!”

Suddenly, I heard a loud voice from somewhere. Thinking that it might have been addressed referring to me, I look over.

“……”

Then, I met eyes with a girl who was waving her arms in this direction.

“……No, it couldn’t be… right?”

I only saw a bit of the girl’s face, but I don’t think I’ve met her before. Even the memorable-looking bandana didn’t seem to be something I have seen before.
I thought for sure she was waving at someone near me, so I distance myself from that spot.

“Eh, wasn’t that addressed to you, Nest?”

Aura asks from behind, but I tell her that I don’t think it’s me and continue walking.

“I said wai… wait a moment, big brother~!!”

……So she really is talking to me.
But my face is ordinary, it’s not an attractive face that would garner attention from girls.
D-damn!!

“!”

At that moment, my arm was grabbed by someone.
Surprised, I tried to check who grabbed me and the girl who had been waving just now was there.

“Jeez! Why are you running away!?”

The girl puffed out her cheeks adorably and looked at me as if implying that she was angry.

“Ah, no, I didn’t think anyone would be calling out to me……”

After all, my face is like this―?
……

“Well, putting that aside, big brother is looking for accommodation, right?”
“……Yeah, well, that’s right. How did you know?”
“With that luggage, anyone would be able to tell that you weren’t people from this town, so I thought you might need a place to stay. My home is an inn, so please come!”
“I see.”

What, so it was like that.
I knew it, but indeed, it wasn’t for that kind of thing……

“Th-then maybe we should go there.”

Confirming that it was alright from everyone behind me as well, I ask the girl to guide us.

“Thank you very much~!!”

Taking care not to lose her, we chase after the girl who was saying ‘Please come this way~!’.

However, I, alone, drooped my shoulders a little because of my ordinary face.
