Chapter 339: 339

A tumultuous discussion continues in the office .

「The cost for the construction of the fortress is too big . Wouldn’t it be better if you built closer to the road instead of trying to do construction in such a difficult place?」

「There’s no meaning if we build it on the plains along the road . Setting it up along the steep cliff means we have a pivotal defense on the side . 」

「I want to eat cherries . 」

Adolph and Leopolt, the ones in charge of politics and military respectively, are in the middle of a dispute with me also in the mix .

The goal is to find a good way to use the tax revenue . We’ll also be getting harvest tax in autumn so we have to deal with the grain, making things a little more troublesome than summer and winter .

I had to pay a fine because of Zilsepia too, so we need to cut back on our spendings .

Just because he has a fancy name, doesn’t mean he has to do all of that unnecessary stuff .

The argument gets more heated .

「Well in that case, the development in the south…… around Kisatto, don’t you think that’s a waste? That area hasn’t officially been ceded by Vandolea . Also geographically speaking, the land will be ruined if a clash occurs and a war starts . 」

「No, that region has been hit with disease and the community is falling apart . If they remain hungry without support, they will start flowing to the north and it’s possible that the fire pox which we finally got under control will expand again . Besides, the a.s.similation of the influx of refugees from the south will cost money too . If we neglect them, it will be the cause for a deterioration in public order . 」

「I’m sure small cherries are sweet and sour . 」

Detailed doc.u.ments filled with numbers fly around and the debaters’ voices grow louder .

I hate numbers and meetings, but seriously partic.i.p.ating in arguments like these once in a while is also the duty of a feudal lord .

「We should sell off the harvested wheat and convert it into gold as quickly as possible . If we take the harvest in the northern region, it will also lower the market price, so wouldn’t it be fine if we buy it again?」

「It may be possible that we need to take unforeseen military action . We should keep it on hand for half a year at the very least . 」

「I would roll the s.h.i.+ny, juicy cherry on my tongue lots before swallowing it . 」

Leopolt and Adolph recognize each other’s ability .

However they prioritize different things so they b.u.t.t heads quite often .

Meetings go smoothly because I regulate their opinions .

Celia joins the discussion .

「I have an idea . We will decrease the allowance given to the women in the annex . With how many more girls there are, the total amount has really ballooned . Let us lower the treatment of female prisoners as well . They are only represent 10% of the total prisoners and are using half of the budget!」

「……I have no objections to that . 」

「Prisoners should be used to death in forced labor . 」

「I will not accept that . All suggestions are rejected . 」

Occasionally being decisive is also a feudal lord’s job .

Gold, huh…… gold…… hm? I just remembered something .

「Hey, didn’t we get money from the King of the Federation? Wouldn’t that help?」

「Oh right, we had that . 」

「If you gave permission to open it, I would have included it in my calculations, but I thought you were deliberately not using it . 」

No, I simply forgot about it after tossing it in the treasure room .

If we’re using it, then let’s use it right away . Gold is meant to be spent .

I enter the treasure storage with Celia and Adolph and search for the box with the money .

We have trouble finding it .

「How strange . I thought it was around here……」

The box has an expensive look and should stand out so it shouldn’t be this hard to recognize .

「It’s pretty dark here . It would be nice if there was a large window . 」

「Well this is the treasure storage . Having any potential escape routes would cause problems . 」

I make idle chatter with Adolph and still come up with nothing .

「It’s not here . In that case, let’s go with what we discussed in the meeting . 」

Celia and Adolph get upset at the same time .

「Don’t say that so quickly! If it’s not here, it’s a big deal!」

「It may be off the account records, but it is obviously important to note if there has been a theft! An immediate investigation is required!」

I forgot about it for so long, it may have been misplaced somewhere .

Yesterday I had half a cake leftover and then it disappeared after I went to take a bath . Things happen .

「That was because I at―― ahem! Err, anyways I know where we should start investigating . 」

Celia takes big strides and walks quickly through the corridor .

She barges into Nonna’s room .

「Come on, let’s see it!」

「What is it, all of a sudden!?」

I hear voices going back and forth .

「I’m talking about the thing you are keeping secretly!」

「Which do you―― I mean, I don’t know what you’re talking about!」

More comments are exchanged .

Nonna is family . I don’t mind if she takes anything, although I would have liked if she said something .

「I never opened the door to the treasure room in the first place! Besides, the guard is like Leopolt-san and wouldn’t let me!」

「So you tried to get in! As I thought, very suspicious!」

In the end, Celia comes out with nothing .

「I guess was wrong……」

「Treating me like a thief! Waaah Aegir-sama, Celia-chan is so mean . 」

Nonna jumps into my chest and cries . She’s right that Celia is wrong for suspecting her so suddenly .

I ruffle her hair and change the style to look more comical .

「Waah, my hair! Uuu…… there are more gold lamps in the room though . I don’t think all of them can be bought with her allowance . 」

Nonna twitches in my arms . Her crying also stops .

I’ll have to ask her about it later .

「What should I do…… what should I do?」

There was a fl.u.s.tered maid in the corridor .

Perfect timing, I was feeling hungry so I’ll get something light to eat .

No use worrying about something you don’t have . We can only focus on using the gold we have right now .

I take a look at the doc.u.ment which Celia neatly folded and put in my pocket .

Income

Harvest Tax: 20 000 gold (sold grain)

Mine Tax: 75 000 gold

Trade Tax: 35 000 gold

Total Income: 130 000 gold

Expenses

Mansion Maintenance: 7000 gold

Security Maintenance: 13 000 gold

Army Wages: 78 000 gold

Military Facilities and Other Miscellaneous Expenses: 12 000 gold

Domestic Development: 10 000 gold

Total Expenses: 120 000 gold

Net Income: +10 000 gold

I remember what was said in the meeting .

Our income from the Lintbloom mine would be hitting a plateau if we didn’t find a new mineral deposit .

Trade is going smoothly within the nation, however the disease hit Malt hard, and there is a restriction on who can go in and out of Libatis, so trade overall has gone down .

Expenses have increased quite a bit .

The attack from Zilromance made us reinforce security on the mansion so our maintenance fee has increased substantially .

Myla’s desire for the city’s public order to improve is also reflected in the rise in expense .

Furthermore, our army has been strengthened in preparation for the rampaging Wilhelmina in the south and even defensive forts have been constructed .

Naturally we need to pay salaries and more maintenance costs .

The good news is that the epidemic didn’t have a major impact on the harvesting of wheat .

Obviously harvesting wasn’t done in the affected areas, although our main grain-producing regions within the territory did not particularly get affected .

Flood control has been making progress and our consistent fertilizer supply helped to ensure a steady harvest .

We have sold off a certain amount of harvested grain to keep ourselves in the black, but fully mobilizing the army will instantly drain our stocks .

In the worst case, I will have to borrow from Claire again .

Now that my work is done, it’s time to go play in the city .

The harvest festival just happens to be going on, so I won’t be bored .

「Master, everything going well?」

「Yes, thanks to you . 」

I drop by the Hard-boiled Pavilion branch store in Rafen .

The shopkeeper Andrei couldn’t do business in the capital anymore because of his extreme fetish for little girls, so I helped get him a store in Rafen .

He’s an old friend, but more importantly his wife Natalie as well as the other girls with him would be too sad .

「It’s quiet in here . 」

All of Rafen is rowdy and energetic from the festivities .

Everyone has stopped working to partic.i.p.ate in the merrymaking, with drinks and meat being distributed throughout the city .

Drunks are shouting loudly and some even get into brawls, but the guards don’t bother to say anything for today .

The city is surrounded by the hustle and bustle, meanwhile time pa.s.ses as usual in the Hard-boiled Pavilion .

I don’t hate all the excitement, except it gets tiring doing it for so long .

Drinking peacefully and chatting with Andrei is pretty nice .

A lot of people have the same thought .

Despite the Hard-boiled Pavilion being relatively new, a decent number of customers have filled the seats in the store .

「Business is booming, huh?」

「There aren’t many competing stores in Rafen . That’s why more customers gather . 」

I slide my empty gla.s.s to Andrei .

「Do you still say Rafen is the countryside?」

I ask with a playful smile .

「Maybe not . 」

My gla.s.s slides back with alcohol poured in .

「Is your fetish under control now? If you do the same thing in Rafen, Myla will arrest you . 」

「Men have things they can’t give up…… but there are times a man must sacrifice for his family . 」

Although he speaks in a hard-boiled manner, I essentially get that he is holding back on touching little girls .

I do see that Andrei’s left hand is shaking slightly .

Don’t tell me he’s having withdrawal symptoms .

I’ll drink a little more and then go back to the mansion . Right when I was thinking that, I saw something unbelievable .

「That was great, honey . 」

「Yes, it felt wonderful . 」

A couple linking arms descends the stairs .

Clearly they just finished having s.e.x .

「We’re not a love inn . However customers are customers . They’ll do what they want . 」

Andrei sounds like he’s fed up, but that’s not important .

While the man appears to a low-intelligence youngster, the issue is with the woman .

「Peticheri!」

I couldn’t help shout out .

「Don’t call me that name!」

Peticheri responds on reflex,

When she sees me, she seems visibly shaken .

「What’s this about…… weren’t you going to become my woman!?」

「I don’t remember making that promise . 」

My loud voice attracts the attention of those around me .

「A lovers’ quarrel?」

「Hey now, don’t kill the mood here . 」

Andrei also shuts his eyes and points to the door .

He’s saying to go outside to fight .

Well relax, I’m not going to start anything here .

「Hey man, you trying to take my girl――」

「Shut up . 」

The guy falls on his a.s.s when I give him a death glare .

I grab his shoulder and puff my muscles excessively to intimidate him .

「I’ll accompany her now . Any complaints?」

「N-no! Go ahead!」

I thought he looked stupid, but he is quick to understand .

「Let’s go, Peticheri . 」

「Haa…… understood . 」

I take Peticheri’s hand and exit the Hard-boiled Pavilion .

The guy remains seated on the floor and watches as Peticheri walks away, who doesn’t even look back once .

「Drink, young one . 」

Andrei offers a gla.s.s of alcohol to the man .

I signal to Andrei that I’ll at least pay for the drink, and he nods in response .

Peticheri and I change location to a rather shady bar instead .

While dancers are showing off their indecent moves and the drunks are cheering, we sit side by side at the counter .

「I’m sad Peticheri . Who would have thought you would cheat with a guy who can think with nothing but his d.i.c.k . 」

「Don’t say that name! Also, I’m not Lord Hardlett’s woman . Who I decide to go out with isn’t your problem . 」

Peticheri gulps down her alcohol . She may be an adult, but that sight seems somewhat immoral .

「So, is that guy your lover?」

I dawdled around too long and Peticheri hooked up with a guy .

If I knew this would happen, I should have pounced on her the first time we met and made her mine .

「Hiding it would make things unnecessarily complicated so I’ll just say it now that it’s nothing serious . I cut him off when I came over…… but my desires got the better of me and I yielded to the man who called out to me in the bar . 」

She empties her gla.s.s as she explains .

It was a pretty strong drink though .

My d.i.c.k reacts with a twitch .

Peticheri is not only perverted, she loves playing around with men, which is an irresistible quality to me .

「I thought I could have fun with this guy at night who looks like he’s fooled around a lot…… in the end he was merely a youngster from the country . He was a man to kill some time . I was hoping to get him to act as a lover…… and then cut him off not long later . 」

That man only made himself look tough, his true nature being that of a coward after being threatened by a thug and who would run away, abandoning a girl with the knowledge she would end up getting raped .

I leaked a little of my bloodl.u.s.t and he turned into that sorry state .

「If you wanted a man, you need only to tell me . I’ll gladly look after you . 」

「I’m supposed to be monitoring you . If news gets out that I have an intimate relations.h.i.+p with my surveillance target, my chances of promotion are done . 」

She pinches the hand I was about to put on her shoulder .

「You could choose to live for love instead of work…… mogh . 」

「I prioritize work first . 」

When I lean my body over for a kiss, she pushes the cheese served as a side dish into my mouth .

「Your wife, your lovers, all of them are beauties so why are you going after me? My a.s.s and chest are both small . 」

「I only have you in my sights right now . You’re my number one . 」

When seducing a woman, it’s important to tell them they’re the best .

Even if I actually have the angry Nonna and the sulking Celia in my head .

I put my hand over Peticheri’s hand and stroke it . This time she doesn’t reject me .

Her face has become quite red . She drinks at a fast pace, although she doesn’t seem to be a heavy drinker .

「Don’t call my name . At least call me Cheri . 」

「Alright . Cheri, I like you . I want you . 」

Little by little, I inch closer to her .

Gradually I could no longer hear the background noise .

「…… I’m not going to believe the sweet words of a womanizer . 」

「Cheri is quite the man-eater too though, no?」

Our lips meet .

「Nmu . 」

「Nn . 」

She isn’t refusing me, so I continue kissing her .

I separate from her when I finish enjoying her tiny lips .

「Geez…… are you going to make me feel good?」

「Leave it to me . More so than any man you’ve had before . 」

The shop a.s.sistant senses the atmosphere and leaves the key to a room in an inn between us .

「Take it off . 」

After getting into our own room, we take off each other’s clothes .

Hearing the sounds of s.e.x and moaning from the adjacent room further heightens our arousal .

「What cute clothes―― oooh . 」

When I take off Cheri’s s.h.i.+rt, a clean white camisole is revealed .

I start pulling it off while thinking that piece of clothing fit her well, only to find a thin black undergarment next .

The woman bends her body trying to impress me .

She’s such a naughty cherry . I’m not going to be able to hold myself back .

「Lord Hardlett has quite the impressive body . Look at that muscle…… nothing I’ve ever seen before . 」

Cheri runs her small hand along my body as she takes off my clothes .

「Do you dislike macho men?」

「Well, I do like them . 」

I am finally left with a single piece of clothing, my underwear . Cheri is also down to clothes which hide her chest and genitals .

「I’m taking them off . 」

First I remove the piece of clothing covering her b.r.e.a.s.t.s .

Small like I thought . Almost like the budding mounds of a young girl during p.u.b.erty .

Her pretty pink nipples are like fresh cherries .

I take the bottom off too .

This place is a little different from what I consider a young girl .

The full patch of black pubic hair insists she is a grown woman .

Her v.a.g.i.n.a is a pretty color and her lips are sticking out a little, showing how much they’ve been used .

I know she’s antic.i.p.ating for her body to be seen by men, seeing as how her pubic hair is trimmed neatly .

Not to mention she isn’t embarra.s.sed from being fully naked and is even sending a provoking glare at me .

「It’s childlike but an adult’s body…… a wonderful body . 」

「Thank you . Then I’ll do the same to you . 」

Cheri sits at my feet and slowly pulls down my underwear .

However my c.o.c.k, which has become erect from seeing her body, gets in the way .

「Your thing is caught…… eh? It shouldn’t be this big…… eei!」

She pulls down my underwear all at once, allowing my c.o.c.k to spring forth .

「I did it! It’s so big!」

Cheri puts a hand to her mouth and smiles .

Then she blushes after seeing my face .

「Nevermind . Shall we head to bed now?」

Her happiness was not an act .

What a lewd Cheri . Marvelous .

「Ahem, you’re the one who attacked, so I’m leaving everything to you . 」

She turns face-up on the bed and spreads her slender legs apart .

「Sure thing . 」

Since a man tempted a woman, it’s his duty to please her .

A good man is capable of leading a woman to climax when she’s sleeping .

I start with kissing her neck, then her modest b.r.e.a.s.t.s, then her navel, then lower to her stomach .

「You smell nice . 」

I lightly press my nose against her secret place before lastly sucking her p.u.s.s.y .

「Nnnh!」

Cheri twitches in surprise when I hold her legs, then I stick my tongue into her hole .

My nose gently grinds against her c.l.i.t while my hands stroke her thighs .

Her v.a.g.i.n.a is tight yet soft, and is emitting a faint enticing scent .

Her c.l.i.toris is really small and most of it is covered by a hood of skin .

「Aah…… you’re skilled, aren’t you . 」

I lift my head in joy and then go back to pressing my face to her groin, inserting my tongue deeper .

With all the saliva lubricating her folds, my lapping makes a steady slurping sound, further fanning the flames of our l.u.s.t .

*** You are reading on https://webnovelonline.com ***

「So deep, your tongue feels so good . 」

Cheri looks at me in surprise .

「My s.e.x drive is pretty high and I can easily go at least ten times, in other words I haven’t had enough . If you still have energy, do you mind keeping me company for a while longer?」

Her expression changes from astonishment to delight .

「Muscular, well-endowed, stinks of man, and peerless in bed…… how much more my type can you get?」

Cheri gets up, sits on top of the table and spreads her legs .

Without a word, I stand in front of her, take her in my arms and penetrate her with my c.o.c.k .

「Aaah, it hasn’t softened at all! It’s still extremely hard!」

「Your hole is still nice and tight too . I’ll dig you up more then!」

I go all out and pummel her with thrusts from the beginning, causing the both of us to reach climax sooner than the first time .

「c.u.mming!」

「On my face!」

I lower Cheri from the table and get her to sit on the floor, then point my c.o.c.k at her .

She closes her eyes and sticks out her baby face .

「Ugh!」

「Hyaa!?」

A similarly large load of s.e.m.e.n gushes out, this time on her face, instantly turning her into a white cherry .

She scoops some of the sticky substance with a finger and licks it off .

「It’s almost like a solid…… such a strong fishy smell too . 」

Before she could finish, I throw her onto the bed and f.u.c.k her cowgirl position next .

After releasing a round in the cowgirl position, I fire off a round in the reverse sitting position, then lift her up for another shot, and then one last shot in the doggy position while I press her down against the bed .

「C-can’t go on…… I’m done……」

Even the lewd Cheri is tired after all that and falls face first into the bed .

I can say I’m satisfied, although I can technically go for a few more rounds .

I lie on my back and pull Cheri close so she can use my arm as a pillow .

「Ah? I’m going to lie down . 」

「Sure . 」

Her entire body is covered in my seed and I feel the unpleasant stickiness on my skin when she rests on me, but I don’t mind .

It’s an honor for a man to have a woman sleep on his chest after s.e.x .

「Did you enjoy yourself?」

「Yeah, it was great . You’re the best out of all the men I’ve had in the past . My hips are still trembling . 」

Cheri buries her face in my arm and softly fondles my shaft and b.a.l.l.s .

What a nice feeling . It was worth all the hard work .

「Then become my woman just like this . Your promotion won’t be affected as long as we hide this . 」

Cheri goes silent briefly before sighing .

「…… alright . However, you need to treat me like this never happened in public . You have to hide this from your wife especially . 」

「Of course . So let’s get along from now on as lov―― guh . 」

She’s gripping tightly on my b.a.l.l.s . What’s that about?

「I’m not your lover, I’m your sweetheart!」

Sorry, sorry . They mean the same thing to me .

「And about how you address me…… please refer to me as Mirkura in public settings . In private, you can call me Cheri . Don’t call me Peticheri at all . 」

Aw, it’s a cute name though .

「Okay, then Cheri will stop using keigo in private too . No calling me Lord Hardlett . 」

Cheri almost uses the same tone as Leopolt when she calls me Lord Hardlett .

It’s bad for my heart if that comes to mind when we’re in the middle of having s.e.x .

「S-so by your name…… Aegir-san?」

「That’s fine, but something sweeter . 」

Cheri is small and adorable so babytalk could be fine too .

「So like…… Eegir?」

「Oh, that’s cute Cheri!!」

I hug her tightly .

「So I’ll call you Eegir from―― then . 」

「Ooh, call be that as much as you want . 」

Having become a public couple, Cheri and I kiss .

「Hey Eegir . I’m feeling hungry, wanna go eat something light?」

The way she calls me changes to how a girlfriend would talk to her boyfriend .

「Sure, we can change…… nah, that’s too much work . Let’s get it delivered . 」

「I’m also covered in Eegir’s c.u.m anyways . 」

I get the young male shop a.s.sistant to fetch us some food .

The young man blushes when he sees the naked Cheri, then leaves in disappointment when he sees my d.i.c.k .

「Hey, let me touch your muscles until the food comes . 」

「Go ahead . Like this?」

I flex my body in various places to make the muscles bulge out .

「Wow…… does this part bulge too?」

「It does, there . 」

I get carried away after being praised and show off my different muscles .

「Ahaha, amazing~」

Our sweet time together continues on .

The Next Day .

When I woke up, Cheri was already gone .

「Oops, I got a message . 」

Characters were written on my erect d.i.c.k with red lipstick .

“Last night was the greatest . It would be bad if we went home together in the morning so I left first . From your beloved cherry . ”

The short note was closed with a kiss mark .

What a way to tickle a man’s heart .

「I’ll get her to do it with her small mouth next time . 」

Cheri is my cherry now .

I’ll continue doing plenty of naughty things with her .

At that moment, I could hear people making a fuss outside the store .

「That was the commotion in the east gate, right?」

「I went to take a look and saw someone swinging their knife around wildly . 」

What are they doing during a festival? I guess there are all sorts of idiots out there .

「Those idiots were a young woman and a little female runt . I heard ‘em screaming something about G.o.d . 」

「Weren’t they just poor people who are not right in the head?」

I heave a sigh and search for my clothes .

The clothes which should have been scattered all over the floor have been properly folded and placed on a chair .

「Maybe . The woman was wearing over-the-top clothes, but was quite a beauty, what a waste . The kid…… had white hair and red eyes . I’ve never seen anything like it . 」

「So what happened in the end?」

A beauty? I put my clothes on quicker .

「It was a big deal because the young woman pointed a knife at the patrolling officers . Unlucky for them that the security unit was close . They were suppressed in no time and taken away . Poor things, being arrested by the security squad means they won’t come out for a while . 」

「Stupid, letting crazy people wander the streets waving knives around is dangerous . I don’t like the security unit myself but they did their job well this time . 」

So security headquarters . Alright, I’m ready to go . Let’s hurry .

When I run out of the room, Celia was waiting outside in the halls .

「……good morning . 」

I don’t know how she found out I was here, but right now is not the time to be worrying .

「Let’s go Celia, a beautiful lady is waiting!」

I carry the clearly unhappy Celia and rush out of the inn .

My destination is security headquarters .
