Alright, it’s the third day of the harvest festival .

Nevertheless, I wouldn’t go out today . I had walked around a lot yesterday and the day before that . Plus, I was worried about Triela’s team’s wallet .

That being said, I was planning to spend my time leisurely in the workshop . I’m also thinking about preparing a dish that would take a bit of time .

There were times when I was struck with those thoughts .

“Um, sorry… I know that I’m bothering you… It’s just a bit hard to stay with them…”
“Er… Well, I’m also one of the causes . Don’t worry about it . ”

Yeah, it’s Ryuu… he even came to the workshop, you know? He told me he wanted to hide for a while or something like that… But I didn’t really mind since I knew the reason .

The cause was probably what happened yesterday . Boman, who had been feeling depressed before the harvest festival, kept grumbling and muttered, “I will definitely find her,” “She’s destined to be mine,” “I will become a successful merchant and bring her home . ”

As the “lady” in question, Ryuu was naturally scared with Boman to some extent… Yeah .

In such a situation, I let him into the workshop and pass his time here today . It’s not like I don’t understand his feelings . I’m also one of the reasons why that happened… Hmm, I never expected that this kind of mess might happen . I have to be careful from now on .

But well, since it already came to this, should I just work on the requested sword that I planned to work on after the harvest festival ended? I almost finished the preparation for my dish anyway .

By the way, I was making roasted pork fillet using orc meat . Rice bowl with roasted pork fillet sounds delicious, right~ Added with chopped cabbages and plenty of broth… Gulp . After that, I could add a bit of extra seasoning .

Since I cooked it at the courtyard, the aroma naturally spread when I was boiling the broth . The workers who were resting in the workshop today were glancing here, making me a bit uncomfortable .

But we couldn’t eat immediately, okay? After weakening the fire, we need to leave it for a while so the meat would absorb the flavor .

It’s still morning, but I asked Ryuu what kind of sword he wanted . I’m planning to work on it right after lunch .

By the way, I had asked permission to use the blacksmith workshop . Even if the workshop was technically closed, the young workers and apprentices were here to practice .

Let me see, the length was the average sword used by an adult man, huh? Ryuu was pretty incompetent, so he should use the light one . Then I should decrease the length of the blade to make a thin sword… First, I took out a few swords as a sample and had him try swinging them .

“I think this one is the best… The blade’s length is perfect . The width of the blade is also very nice . ”
“Isn’t it heavy? I think you should choose a lighter one . ”
“Ahh, I will train myself on that part . I’m slender, right? If I don’t get any taller than this, then my weight will remain on the lighter side . That’s why I have to choose a weapon heavier than me . I heard it’s to increase the… uh, power?”

I see . If the weapon was heavy, then its weight would also increase the power of his slashing attack . Seems like he properly investigated this matter, eh .

Even so, I think think that forcing himself to use a sword that didn’t suit his physique would burden him a lot .

…Hmm, maybe I should give him a short sword as a bonus?

After thinking about a lot of things, it’s finally time to have lunch . Let’s have a meal now . Maybe I should let Ryuu eat some of it since he was already here .

Without delay, I made a rice bowl with the roasted pork filled I cooked just now . As I expected, the flavor hadn’t perfectly seeped into the meat by a few hours… Hmm .

“Delicious! What is this? So delicious!?”

“If we leave it until tomorrow, it will be even more delicious . ”
“Really!? The meat is thicker than your previous rice bowl . I prefer this one!”

Previous rice bowl? Was he talking about the pork rice bowl? I liked both of them since they were easy to eat . No matter what was the food, I couldn’t decide on which one was superior .

“I don’t really like vegetables, but this is really delicious! I can eat as many vegetables as possible if it tastes like this!”

That’s because I poured broth in it . Plus, the deliciousness of the vegetables would increase several times if you eat it with meat . I also really liked vegetables . Ah, maybe I should make various side dishes, like salad .

The people in the workshop were watching me from a distance, but they didn’t look like they would approach us if I didn’t call them . They were probably feeling reserved because I was with my acquaintance . But they looked like they really wanted to eat this… Let’s pretend I didn’t notice them .

After we finished our lunch, I decided to work on the sword at once . It would be troublesome if Ryuu stood outside alone, so he also came into the blacksmith workshop . Even so, I couldn’t concentrate if he talked, so I instructed him to stay silent .

…No, even if I said that, I wouldn’t be able to calm down if he stared at me like that… Forget it, focus!

I forged a heavy sword at once, then continued with forging another sword with a shorter blade for Ryuu’s sub-weapon . After I’m done, I forged the parts other than the blade, and I’m done . Hmm, it took around two hours . Even I think that my speed was pretty crazy~

I dried my sweat and clothes with [Dry] . Then I washed the dirt with [Wash] and took a rest .

“What’s left is just leaving it to cool down . I will assemble it after tomorrow . ”
“I don’t really understand, but aren’t you too fast…? So it’ll be done after tomorrow, huh…”

No, I had to make some fine adjustments for Ryuu after assembling it, so it wouldn’t just be done after that… But it’s not a big deal, so whatever .

“How are you going to pick it up later?”
“There are still two days of harvest festival left . I’m also completely fine with picking it up later than that . Rushing something like this is pointless!”

Hmm, Ryuu really had grown up… I didn’t hate kids who worked hard . Anyway, I didn’t plan to go out tomorrow, so I would just finish it as fast as I can . After that… I still had enough reserve materials to fix the leather armor, right? …Yep .

“Ryuu, please sit over there . ”

“Eh? Here?”
“Yes . ”

After I had Ryuu sit down, I pretended to take out some items from the bag on the corner of the room and took out various leather armor materials from my [Storage] .
Then I adjusted the size with Ryuu’s body and assembled it . I had done this a lot of times, so I was done in a few minutes . Well, you see… our chest size… was really different…

“Wait… Ren, is this okay?”
“It’s just a small service from me . ”

Yeah, Ryuu’s chastity would be in danger every night from now on . After I told him to do his best to run away, Ryuu had a very complicated face . But since I already warned him, I wouldn’t be responsible if something really happened .

I assembled it quickly, did some fine adjustment here and there, and done .

“How is it? Are there any places where it’s hard to move?”
“No, it’s okay . This is amazing . Is this the same as Triela’s?”

After I made Triela’s armor, my skill level had increased considerably . Ryuu’s should be stronger than hers . But I wouldn’t tell that to him .

“Since your body is still not ready for combat, I think leather armor is better for you . Leather armor or breastplate were light metal armors . And since you are entering your growth period, you should wear clothes made of leather or coat . ”

But then, Ryuu was too slender even at his current age . There were chances that he wouldn’t grow any bigger like what he said . To compensate that, it’s up to him to do his best and gain some muscles . Even so, he had grown to be as tall as me in this one month! Damn it! …I want to be at least 150cm tall… Haa .

“Ah… Okay, got it . Thank you, Ren!”
“It’s nothing . By the way, I’m planning to finish the sword tomorrow, so what do you think? I’m thinking of handing it to you at noon . ”
“Eh, you’re not going out tomorrow?”
“I don’t really understand the charm of watching the match between nobles…”

I was a bit curious about the archery contests and horsemanship, though . Horseback archery too . But with the level of my [Snipe], I felt like I could handle it easily . Ah, but my [Riding] level was still low, right? I had to increase it… To make sure I would be able to run away in emergency times .

“Is that so? Then… Ah, then can I pick it up before evening? I want to take a look around . ”
“I don’t mind . It’s important to watch strong people’s movement to become strong, so please do your best . ”
“Ohh, Gim also told me the same thing! We have to watch them as we properly think about why they move like that . I don’t really get it, but I also feel like I somewhat understand what he wants to say . Ren also said that, so it should be something really important, right? I want to become stronger, so I will give it my all . ”

Ohh, he used to be such a mischievous stupid brat that wouldn’t listen to others, and he had become this well just in a few days… I wanted to tell the remaining two fools to follow Ryuu’s steps .

Eh? I myself couldn’t be prudent at all even after a long time had passed, so I didn’t deserve to say that? That was that this was this! Besides, I intended to choose my friends and the situations where I meddled in… My plan just didn’t work really well…

Now then, I equipped the dagger to the waist of Ryuu’s leather armor . Now it’s all done . Ryuu looked like he wanted to say something, but I ignored him . He should just accept my goodwill without saying anything .

N-no, it’s not like I was embarrassed or anything! (monotone voice)

…Yeah, that’s disgusting . It didn’t suit my character at all .

After that, it’s time for Ryuu to go home . His steps were light, probably because he was happy with me giving him a dagger .

In the dining hall, everyone in the workshop looked like they wanted to say something . Rather, they stared at me with a wistful look, but I ignored them . I’m sure that they would gulp down all of the roasted pork fillets I made if I took it out here .

As an exchange, I took out the potato rice cake I made with the roasted pork fillet as a dessert . I also made a lot of other things, but for now, each people could only take three pieces, okay? I also want to have my share .

(Say no to content thief!)

I knew how to make this because my parents in my previous life used to live in Tohoku . Since this was quite filling, I could eat it as my meal when I was busy .

When I told them that this was made of potato, everyone became really curious about the recipes . I felt like I already taught them too many recipes, so I pretended not to notice what they want . The landlady also seemed to feel bad, so she didn’t mention it again . Sorry .

After that, I took a bath and went to sleep . Hmm, today was a mess… I had a feeling that tomorrow would be messy too since I planned to spend it without much thinking… Ugh .
