Nonna and Carla are sitting on either side of me and sulking .
It seems they still hold a grudge against me for leaving them alone and entering the forest for a whole day .
「Did you go hiking with just Celia-san and Mireille-san or something?」
It wasn’t as relaxing as that .
「What did you do in the forest? I don’t only smell a woman’s scent on you, there’s some strange scent on you too . 」
That’s probably Lammy’s scent .
I had an orgy after being with her so I thought her scent would be covered up though .
「We’re part of this newlywed trip too, you know?」
「Let’s all say it . Buuu . 」「Buu, buuu」
Catherine, Maria and even Miti condemns me .
By the way, Celia and Mireille were travelling with me on the first day so they switched to another carriage today .
Seeing the resisting Celia carried off against her will by her arms and legs was quite the surreal scene .
（What a wonderful view~）
Since a rope is tied around her waist and fixed to the roof of the carriage, Casie can catch the wind and soar in the sky .
Apparently she learned flying techniques and anti-crow battle techniques .
On the way, we encountered a suspicious-looking old woman who was possessed by a wicked spirit . When we told her we would pay 10 gold, Casie nose dived and scared the woman, causing her to foam at the mouth and faint .
Of course, Casie continued flying straight into the ground and got a portion of herself buried under the dirt .
「Aegir-sama, are you listening!? When we reach Tortoent, you need to pay plenty of attention to me . 」
「Alright . My cute Nonna . 」
When I hug her close and stroke her head, she becomes more docile .
I can feel her large b.r.e.a.s.t.s pressing against my chest .
If she pushes them on me like this, I can’t help but want to ravish her on the spot .
「I don’t mind, you know? A husband l.u.s.ting for his wife is quite natural . 」
Without hesitation, I grab her b.r.e.a.s.t.s .
「Aah, not fair, me too!」
「You can grab my b.o.o.bs too . 」「They’re small, but you can still touch them if you want . 」
b.r.e.a.s.t.s come at me from all directions, and I’ll even accept Maria’s erect nipples .
「I’ll be buried in b.o.o.bs at this rate . Don’t feel you have to stop though, this is the best . 」
However, the pa.s.sing of time cruelly ends my paradise .
「Hardlett-dono, we have arrived at Tortoent . ……there will be heavy pedestrian traffic throughout the city from here on, so moaning and making the carriage shake will really draw attention to us . 」
I hear the voice of the escort captain outside the carriage .
He doesn’t dare to open the window of the carriage anymore .
Now that I think about it, I’ve been constantly flirting with the girls along the way besides the time I’m asleep .
The girls quickly tidy and adjust their messed up clothes while Miti helps Nonna …… once her b.r.e.a.s.t.s are out of her clothes, it’s apparently difficult to get them back in due to their sheer size .
Not to mention she just gave birth not too long ago so unless her b.o.o.bs are kept in check, a huge mess will be made from leaking breast milk .
Furthermore, the amount of milk she lactates can’t be underestimated and is enough to make her b.o.o.bs feel stiff even after feeding her twins .
For now, I need to greet the important people here in the capital city of Libatis .
Once that’s done, I can take a relaxing walk around the city and maybe do some shopping…… .
「Hm? What’s that?」
Something is glittering in the corner of the carriage hidden by a cus.h.i.+on .
When I go to pick it up, I find that it’s a gold necklace .
At first I thought it was something that matched with someone’s formal dress, though it’s ugly and glaringly s.h.i.+ny, not complimenting anyone’s dress that I know .
I know who bought this without anyone having to say anything .
I guess it isn’t a big deal after I didn’t pay attention to her for one day…… but I wonder why all the girls, besides Nonna, are avoiding eye contact awkwardly . .
「We have arrived . Please alight from your carriage . 」
I hear the captain’s voice again .
Whatever, I can let this gold jewellery slide .
Libatis Government Administration
「Pleased to meet you . Hardlett…… Margrave Hardlett, I presume?」
「The pleasure is mine, Minister of Foreign Affairs . 」
The government administration is comparable to the royal palace in Goldonia, where apparently the ministers and individuals with the highest authority in the country called consuls do their government affairs .
「On this occasion, you have come for sightseeing so I would be delighted if you could experience the difference between our country and yours . I hope this will help in building a favorable relations.h.i.+p in the future . 」
I can tell from one look and his few words that he doesn’t like me .
He wasn’t speaking to be in a rude tone or openly expressing his distaste for me but every one of his courteous words seem barbed .
「We may need to cooperate in the future . So it may please you to make some friends with the individuals of the national army . …… Tretts, continue to be Hardlett-dono’s escort and guide . 」
So the captain’s name is Tretts .
He salutes with brisk motions though his face has a slightly contradicting expression .
Did I really cause him that much trouble?
「Now then, I will excuse myself . 」
「Yes, thank you for this worthwhile meeting . 」
I mutter “liar” in my heart before exiting the room .
I can see clearly in his face that he’s telling me to “hurry up and leave” .
Whatever, I wasn’t thrilled to meet the Foreign Minister anyways . My main objective is for my girls to have a relaxing outing .
「Then I will count on you for your continued service . 」
「Right…… I hope you don’t act too rashly . 」
The captain smiles bitterly before sighing .
–Third Person POV–
Foreign Minister’s Room
「Minister, he has also realized . 」
The minister smiles slightly at the secretary’s words and plops himself on his chair .
「I’m sure he has . But it shouldn’t be a problem, in the end he’s nothing more than just a feudal lord out in some remote land . 」
「Goldonia governs everything from the law to military service and tax when it comes to feudal lords . 」
The minister snorts .
「The fact that only a single ruler of the region has individual privilege-…… it makes monarchy is truly an inferior system of government . In the first place, giving power to individuals through bloodline and not to those actually capable is absolutely outrageous . 」
The secretary doesn’t say anything further .
「Juno has involved himself with that guy and seems to be plotting something, but I can’t trust Goldonia like I can’t trust those religious fanatics from Altair . Those guys treat agreements with neighboring countries like sc.r.a.p pieces of paper . I’m not unaware of how many countries Goldonia has destroyed up till now . 」
The minister brings out a report doc.u.ments and shows it to the secretary .
「This is a report from one of my trusted retainers who has mixed in with the escorts…… look at it, it’s a complete mess . 」
「Let me see . ……oh, this is-」
A smile unconsciously forms on the secretary’s face, but his face stiffens and becomes serious when the minister glares at him .
「The number of women accompanying him is 13 . It looks like even aside from his wife and concubines, the others all have a relations.h.i.+p to him as a lover…… I’m surprised they all get along . I’d also like some of that good…… ahem, pardon me . 」
The secretary clears his throat and continues reading .
「According to the information gleaned from miscellaneous conversations, Hardlett-dono indulges in lewd activities every night and repeatedly enjoys large-scale orgies…… he houses close to 100 girls in his home and indiscriminately impregnates them…… this is the report?」
「I feel dirty just from reading it . 」
「The minister makes it a purpose to be upright and cleanhanded after all . Err, let’s see…… this is horrible, he particularly loves l.u.s.ting after mothers and daughters at the same time and violates all women young and old . 」
「Can we negotiate with a man like this? He makes negotiating with those religious fanatics a better idea, no?」
「Haa…… he seems to have serious issues with his personality, although he would be easy to handle if he is indeed controlled by his l.u.s.t . Perhaps Vice Minister Juno also thought the same thing when he laid his eyes on that man?」
The minister makes a face as if looking down on the person who was brought up and then goes into thinking while resting his head on his hand .
「It’s possible, Juno is also quite the capable man . If that man is a s.e.x beast ruled by his lower half, then he’ll be easy to deal with, huh…… I don’t trust him but I also can’t try to outsmart him . For now, we’ll just have to entertain him without being rude, though make sure not to send any female attendants . 」
The secretary realizes something after nodding .
「The secretary who Vice Minister Juno stationed at that man’s residence for communication purposes was a woman . 」
「……we’ll make an exception and raise the wages . We’re probably too late though . 」
Central Part of Tortoent
「It’s really booming here . 」
「I didn’t think it would be to this extent . 」
I heard that Libatis is a pretty developed nation, especially economically, amongst the southern nations .
However, the capital city Tortoent really surpa.s.sed by imaginations .
Rafen can’t compare and there seems to be as much energy in the city as there is in the capital of Goldonia .
On both sides of the main street, various shops are lined up side by side with the merchants calling out to potential customers, while in front of those shops are carts and street vendors selling everything from unique trinkets to useless junk .
And even those vendors are gradually selling most of their stock .
Which means the citizens have the luxury to buy goods besides the basic necessities .
「Consul Kaldenas is an extremely competent man . Libatis experienced an even higher level of development ever since that man became the Consul . 」
The captain……Tretts, is guarding me alone as we are in the center of the busy city .
Tortoent is a large city but he said that we should be safe as long as we don’t do anything to stand out .
「The Consul, huh . I kind of wanted to meet him . 」
I’m a little curious as to what kind of person the individual who the citizens elected to be their leader is .
「My deepest apologies…… the Consul is an extremely busy person, which I’m sure Hardlett-dono can understand . 」
「It’s fine, I was just curious . I’m sure he doesn’t have time to meet someone like me anyways . 」
I’m sure we’ll have a chance to meet if fate allows it .
*** You are reading on https://webnovelonline.com ***
I take the girls on a walk to explore the city, doing some shopping here and there .
Oh, so it was just some strange evangelist? He got my hopes up for nothing .
「Ooh, all you pitiful people…… why do you not walk alongside us? G.o.d is shedding tears because of your ignorance and unenlightenment . 」
A man is enthusiastically shouting in the middle of the road while onlookers pa.s.s by him with a troubled look on their faces .
Some of them openly express their feelings of disgust and even kick sand at him .
「It’s propagation done to convert people into believing in the G.o.d Altair…… it takes some nerve to openly do something like this . 」
「Altair, which means…… the Divine Nation of Altair? You’re allowing the enemy nation to solicit your fellow citizens?」
Celia is also surprised .
Nonna is looking at a jewel being sold by a street vendor .
「The religion of Altair has continued for many generations since ancient times…… but the Divine Nation just started spouting on their own that Altair is the one and only G.o.d and that the Pope is the reincarnation . 」
「It seems like that man is also saying the same thing . 」
「Ooh, Altair is the only absolute G.o.d! Other G.o.ds and spirits are all deceptions, you must not believe in them . 」
The man continues to appeal to the people by explaining the joy of serving his G.o.d .
Of course, n.o.body seems to be paying attention .
Nonna holds up the jewel to the sun and seems spellbound .
「If I were to speak my true feelings, I would also want to chase the man out of my nation and send him back to the Divine Nation of Altair . Like I said earlier, our nation has a fixed set of laws . Spreading the religion on the road isn’t illegal . It would be a different story if he were to publicly declare his loyalty to the Divine Nation of Altair though……」
The man repeatedly pleads for people to “walk with me” or “serve” but he is only referring to the ancient G.o.d named Altair .
「If we were to imprison people for wors.h.i.+pping a G.o.d, we would be no different than the People’s Federation of Vandolea, a nation who robs the citizens of their freedom . 」
So Libatis can’t throw somebody out of the nation just because they seem suspicious .
This really is a troublesome country .
Nonna takes out her purse .
「I’ve been seeing an increase of people spreading the faith of Altair recently though…… some sort of countermeasure must be considered . However, I’m pretty sure it should be fine since n.o.body is foolish enough to listen . 」
It seems Libatis has its own problems .
For me, if I didn’t have Leopolt and Adolph, I would have to deal with all the tiny problems myself .
I should be kinder to them .
Carla and Mireille are pulling Nonna away by her arms .
「Alright, I’ll let you return to your inn today and have something to eat . I’ll introduce you to those in the military tomorrow . 」
「Okay . Thanks . 」
At that moment, two soldiers come running through the crowd of people…… soldiers who I recognize as Tretts’s subordinates .
They seem to tell Tretts something .
As I watch his expression, the complexion of his face gets gradually worse .
「Err…… an emergency situation has come up……」
Tretts hesitates for a brief moment before whispering to me in a way that the girls can’t hear .
「A little bit of a problem has come up at the border between our nation and Altair…… I apologize but could you ask if any complications arose in the scheduled meeting with the military tomorrow……」
Make it a topic for discussion…… eh?
「G.o.d has come!! He has descended to this present world!!」
The evangelist who is practically spitting while he shouts is awfully loud .
（I’ve realized something . ）
What is it, Casie?
（It’s about Altair, the one and absolute G.o.d . The other G.o.ds and mysterious beings are all fake . ）
Is that so, Casie . Well you should look at yourself before saying that .
（Oh my! Does that mean I’m the one and only G.o.d, Altair!?）
Sure, Casie . Right, I think we have pumpkin pie today .
Lots of ripened pumpkins were used so surely it will taste delicious .
（Yaaaay, give thanks to the pumpkin G.o.d!）
I wonder if that strange evangelist attracts people like this .
