Chapter 153 – It Will All Be Clear When We Talk
“That’s not fair. I want the clothes that Kosuke made too.”
“Yes, it’s not fair. We want the clothes you made, too!”
“I-I want it too!”
“I wish I had one.”
“All right! All right!”
When I put the Wyvern leather armor and the Wyvern wing membrane cloak into the crafting menu, the winged ones flew in and surrounded me. Yes, it was Grande and the Harpies. They seemed to be working together and literally flew back before Shumel and Tozume, who had gone to look for Grande. Was it really that shocking that I made clothes for them?
“I can usually make clothes for you girls if you ask me… but I can’t make clothes for you yet.”
“In order to use my crafting abilities, I need to have a certain idea of what I want to make.”
“What’s wrong with that?”
Grande tilted her head. Next to her, Eyja tilted her head in the same way. Eeei, isn’t that cute?
“In other words, with my poor imagination, I can only make clothes that look a little bit like the ones you are wearing now, with a few tweaks. If you’re okay with that, I’ll make it.”
“That’s fine! I want the clothes you made for me!”
“I-I see. Well, before I make Grande’s clothes, I’ll take out Shumel and the others’ weapons since they’re ready. Bella, when the two of them return, you can try them out.”
“Okay. Oh, so this is the glow of mithril alloy.”
I took out three weapons from the golem workbench and left them with Bella.
“Then let’s try to make some things.”
“Make it cute, make it cute.”
“Don’t ask for anything complicated…”
Can I make a halter-neck dress by attaching the halter-neck shirt and skirt she’s wearing now, and make the skirt part fasten with a zipper… or hook in the back so that it opens completely?
Grande has stubby claws on her feet too, so it’s hard to get them through her legs like this. The claws are sharp, so if they get caught, the clothes will get scratched.
I chose to use more ruffles and lace. I’ll try to make two colors, white and bright red.
“There you go.”
“Ooh… I’m going to put it on right away!”
“Isla, I don’t think she can do it by herself, so help her.”
“Hmm, okay. Don’t take it off here.”
Isla pulled Grande into the house to start changing there. Grande tried to take off her clothes here, and that’s just how Grande is. In the eyes of a dragon, clothes are nothing more than decoration.
“So, next is…”
The Harpies are staring at me with glowing eyes. I don’t know what to do with you girls! You don’t like to wear too many frilly clothes because they get in the way of your flight, right?
However, there are few parts that get in the way of wearing it as much as Grande. They have bird-like legs from the knees down, but if they close their legs, the claws are hidden, and they are almost the same size as human ankles. From the shoulders down, the wings are wings themselves, so they can’t be worn with long-sleeved clothes.
“Let’s try to make some things. If it’s not long-sleeved, Harpy can wear pretty much anything.”
Sleeveless ― in other words, as long as it doesn’t have sleeves, it’s fine. If it’s sleeveless, it can be worn with anything from a dress to a mini-skirt, or even with a sleeveless top and hot pants or a mini-skirt.
All I had to do was change the color and design to fit each person’s size. I continued to work in silence. After making them, the Harpies and Isla carried the outfits into the house, changed into them, and came out. Yes, I remember that Pirna and Isla are almost the same sizes, so they can actually wear the same clothes, right, girls?
In the meantime, the gallery of women from the rear base… who witnessed the fashion show began to increase. This trend is not good!
“You have to give up.”
The Beastman, Lamia, the Dwarf lady who I thought was a child, and the Lizard Woman… Ms. Zamir. Please don’t mix it up. Oh, yes, I’ll make it. I think that a military uniform would be perfect for Ms. Zamir, what do you think? Eh? White frilly…?
Fumu, let’s make it… It may be rude to say it is unexpected, but it looks rather good on her.
“Thanks for your effort.”
It was late in the evening when I was finally freed, and I’m now lying on Isla’s lap in the house. She was smiling at me and stroking my head with her small hand. It’s very soothing.
The weapons and Wyvern leather armor of Shumel and the others didn’t need any adjustments, so it was good that I didn’t have to do anything, but it was hard to make clothes for the ladies who came over.
“It was a good way to vent, I think. It’s not like there’s a lot of entertainment here.”
“We’ll have to do something about that.”
“Yes, but that’s for them to figure out for themselves. Don’t worry, after they’ve lived here for a while; they’ll start to organize their own events. Right now, they’re just struggling to survive.”
“Is that how it is?”
“That’s how it is.”
Isla nodded her head. I think that’s what it is if you say so. But I still want to do something.
“Speaking of which, how is the development of the golem communication transmitter going?”
“It will be finished soon. Why?”
“No, I’m thinking that once it’s finished, we can start broadcasting on the radio. It would be a great source of entertainment.”
“Radio broadcasting… I remember it’s the kind with the golem transmissions, the ones that give you information about different places and play songs and music?”
“Yes, that’s it. The news can be as trivial as desired. For example, a festival was held in a certain town, or the food in a certain town is delicious, or a monster appeared on the road between a certain town and a village, but the Liberation Army troops exterminated it and made it safe, or something like that. It’s fun just to listen to new information about unknown places.”
“I see. That sounds like fun.”
“Right? I’d love to do that when the research is complete.”
Well, radio broadcasting is not only for entertainment but also for military purposes. It can be used to broadcast propaganda. I’ve heard that the literacy rate is not that high in this world. In other words, the education is not very good. It would be dangerous to broadcast propaganda in such a country. No, it would be beneficial if used properly. I’ll explain the dangers when the time comes to put it to practical use.
“Why do you leave me alone?”
Grande rushed into my stomach as I lay on the couch. If she had really hit him, I would have been blown up, and the couch would have been cut in half. It is good that Grande has the bracelet of protection to keep her strength in check.
“Hey, Kosuke. I have the appearance of a human being, and then I am married to you.”
“But you don’t seem to touch me much, do you?”
“I don’t mean that, but…”
As I sat up from Isla’s lap pillow and sat on the couch, Grande stood in front of me. Even if she is standing there, her line of sight is not much different from that of me sitting on the chair. She is a petite dragon girl.
“No, that’s right. You have been flirting with Sylphy, Isla, the Harpies, and that demon species, but the only thing you do with me is pat me on the head.”
“Is… that so?”
If that’s what you’re thinking, you might be right. I think I might not have hugged her as much as I should have.
“And I’m sure you’ve been… f-flirting… more closely with someone other than me!?”
“Yes, that’s, yes, that’s true.”
“My size is not that much different from Isla’s and Pirna’s! Why don’t you do that… kind of thing with me?”
“Why, you ask…?”
It’s because it’s Grande… No, she is cute, though, isn’t she? For me, Grande is more like a pet, a healing pet. I can’t help it because I can’t seem to get myself to do it.
“The other day, while I was pretending to be asleep, you just brought food and drink into my bedroom and didn’t even try to flirt with me… Why are you leaving me out?”
Grande’s eyes started to tear up as she stared at me. That’s when I thought I had to say something.
“Okay, that’s the purpose of this expedition.”
The woman sitting next to me, Isla, started to say something incomprehensible. I’m not sure what that means.
“We don’t need to fly for a while after coming this far. Even if your body gets a little strange, it’s okay.”
“Wait, wait, what are you talking about?”
“I don’t know if it’ll work on dragons, but I’ve prepared some medicine.”
“We’ll help you!”
“Don’t worry; I know exactly where Danna-san’s weaknesses lie.”
“Whoa, you just suddenly entered the conversation!”
The Harpies who had been sitting at a table some distance away, talking about something, also joined in. And while Isla explained something to Grande, she showed a kind of medicine bottle containing colorful liquid from the hem of her robe. There’s also a rainbow-colored medicine that looks dangerous. Isn’t that the kind of medicine that will blow you to the moon if you take it?
“We haven’t even had dinner yet, so let’s calm down. Wha?”
“If we get hungry, Kosuke can bring it out midway. No problem.”
“Now that you’ve kept Grande-san waiting for so long, you’d better prepare yourself.”
“Wait, calm down. It will all be clear when we talk.”
“No questions asked.”
I tried to resist, but a magic shackle was placed on my wrist. Fuh, fool. Do you think that abnormal status magic will work on me ― or will it, eh?
“The kind of magic that affects the magic power in the body or the magic power circuit will not work on Kosuke, who has no magic power. But that is not the case when it comes to magic with physical restraints.”
“I-is it your idea, Isla?”
“It’s Kosuke’s fault for keeping your hands off of Grande for so long. I feel sorry for Grande. Take him away.”
“Don’t worry; it won’t hurt.”
“It will be over before you can count the stains on the ceiling.”
While I’ve bound by Isla’s magic, the Harpies start dragging me towards the bedroom. I-I’m not going to give up! I’m not going to be defeated by Isla’s weird potion!
