Chapter 3 ~ Shira
“Thank you very much, really!”
We are in my room at the Elf Mansion. We are holding a farewell celebration for Tamara and her spouse, just me and Sati, while we asked the other not to interfere.
She’s only been with us for merely two months. Tamara chan is now freed from being my slave, without me laying a finger on her.
I will do my best! Or so, I was told when I purchased her. I have no lingering affection for her, but when it is time to separate, I got a feeling that I had done something very wasteful.
Yet to say, they made mountain of wealth through the gladiator tournament bets. Using their collected money, my money for their purchase were fully refunded. Tamara chan is already a free person. Earlier, I’ve had the crest maker came to the Elf Mansion, hence their slave crests are no longer presence. Next beside Tamara chan is her husband, and he is also bowing down.
Both of them are really young, around a high schooler age. When I was still in high school……yeah, I better stop here. Right now, I am a splendid rear guard, enviable by many.
“It was just luck that I have made money this time. Why don’t we live properly after this without betting?”
“Yes. We will do just that!”
“The next thing to discuss is what you’re gonna do from now on.”
“Our future, huh?”
“That’s right. Now that you’re no longer my possession, you are free to go to anywhere that you want, correct? You can return to the village where you were born and raised or stay here if you like the royal capital. Of course, I would definitely prefer if you continue to work in my household like now.”
“We all are truly, greatly indebted to Masaru sama! If it doesn’t come as impudence, I would like to continue serving the Yamano household for the rest of my life.”
Serving the Yamano household for the rest of their life, huh. If the end of the world is prevented, will the household prosper for two, or three generations? Will that be an adequate expectation?
“Your words, I will remember them. I hope you will continue to work hard in the future.”
“There are three more days before we left. Just ease yourself slowly.”
