Chapter 77: Triumphant
After talking for a while, the girls finally leaving while Maevis saying that she would ask her master next time.
After that, the girls and the merchant team returned safely to the Kingdom without any problems.
◎ Kingdom’s capital
There’s no bandit attacking so far. Bandits only aim a foolish stingy merchant that don’t hire escort hunters or weak people who can’t afford to hire them.
However, Mile and Maevis were preached by Rena in the carriage.
“Both of you, I have something I really want to say …” (Rena)
Rena kept on speaking to the two:
“… Well, the pickled cabbage is delicious! Especially when you eat it with boiled sausage!” (Rena)
That’s what Rena want to talking about
“As a snack when drinking ale …” (Rena)
Why is she concerned about pickling cabbage this much?
It seemed like they couldn’t listen to it somehow, both Mile and Maevis become a yes-man listen to Rena’s complain.
◎ Capital’s hunter guild branch
When they return to the guild, there is nothing in particular.
Because the escort unit hasn’t returned yet, they still don’t know anything.
The report to the guild will be done by Teresa later. So『Red Oath』didn’t have to do anything. The girls only received the completion report of the return escort request and the reward.
Teresa also tries to get the reward but her hand is grasped by the Guild Master.
“It’s time for your report” (Guild master)
◎ Capital city – Reni-chan’ inn
“We came back!” (Mile + Pauline + Maevis + Rena)
As they came back, the girls say their greeting.
However, they don’t hear the the usual cheerful reply of Reni-chan.
And the counter, no one is sitting.
“Is she in the washroom or something?” (Mile)
At the same time Mile tilted her neck, she heard the big footstep from the far side, Reni-chan came running.
“U waaaaa Onee-san~nnnn!!” (Reni-chan)
Reni-chan runs toward and hugs Mile as she’s crying.
“What, what’s wrong?” (Mile)
From what Reni-chan explained while crying, it seems her trouble are from the bath.
… Because of the bath, it seemed that Renee was going to overwork to die.
After Mile left the capital, Reni-chan have searched for magicians for hot water on behalf of her busy parents at the inn. Even this is the capital, the number of magicians is small.
Reni-chan can still find the water magician or fire magician hunter though.
They also agreed to help. Because those hunters don’t have to worry about the remaining magical power while they are in the royal city and they can use most of the magical powers after dinner. As soon as they go to bed they will be recovering the next morning, so they can get some extra money or free drinks and snacks.
It should have been.
However, a big problem occurred from there.
The amount of water that ordinary magicians can produce is small.
Reni-chan always saw that Mile would easily supply 2 tanks of hot water and 2 tanks of normal water, but in fact it was quite a pain to put out water with magic. (RIP: Reni-chan common sense)
It’s impossible for a normal magician to produce that much water.
There’s another is use storage or s.p.a.ce time magic to transfer water. But these kind of magician is really rare and their limit are small.
Blah blah blah … (T.N: Sorry but there are 30 lines of explain how magician can’t produce water and hot water. I feel my head hurt.)
In other words, it was diffucult to create a large amount of water and boil it with magic.
That is why they judge the ability of a magician by “How much water and how many times can you create? And how long will it take to create again?”
To create enough water to fill the bathtub beside Mile, maybe only Pauline can do that.

They can fill the bathtub if we ask more people, still the fee will rise.
And for drawing water, you can hired the orphaned children. It would be great for they to earn enough money, you can also pay them with food. Wouldn’t it be more expensive if we use magicians to create and boil water?” (Pauline)
Reni-chan after hearing that, her eyes are shining.
“Go…G.o.ddess” (Reni-chan) (Me…megami-sama)
Thus, thanks to the (dark) “G.o.ddess”, Reni-chan’s life’s crisis and becoming muscular macho was avoided.
◎ Capital city – Reni-chan’ inn – room
“… Then, what should we do about Mile …” (Rena)
When the girls took a breath in the room, Rena asking Mile.
“I agree…” (Pauline)
Maevis and Pauline also agree with Rena, while Mile still don’t know what Rena wants to talk about.
“When Pauline and Maevis’s parents’ home trouble are over.
I had been thinking about you, Mile. Because of you, me, Paulin and Maevis managed to settle with our past and families. So, now I wonder if there’s anything we should do to help you manage your place?” (Rena)
“Of course, we will help!” (Meavis)
Pauline and Maevis responded immediately to Rena’s words, but Mile’s mind still on the cloud.
“Well … His Majesty, the king had his eyes on us. And Maevis’s family are interested in Mile, so you don’t have to worry about your future when you retire. You can become Maevis’s sister on law or the wife of some n.o.ble.” (Rena)
“Well, let’s take a few days off, after that we start out next quest again!” (Maevis)
“Yeah, now let’s find something interesting!” (Pauline)
“It’s nice! Let’s choose a request that is more worthwhile, not just a simple task like hunting a goblin!” (Rena)
Apparently, it seemed that they decided it without Mile.
