Chapter 6 – Party of Beauties and Island Life
Morning… huh? Until yesterday morning, I thought I was going to have a nice, relaxing, rough time! I thought I was dreaming, but the next day I was in mortal danger… You never know what life has to offer you. Well, I’ve come to another world. It’s too late for that.
Okay, let’s switch it up. It’s no use being in the dark forever. The danger is not worth it if I don’t make money, so I’m going to make a lot of money. Well, I should just get ready and wait here, right?
“Yes, come in.”
“Good morning. Wataru-san.”
Oh, first thing in the morning, a beautiful fox-eared woman comes on the scene. I’m so happy.
“Good morning. Camille-san.”
“I brought your breakfast. Here are your supplies for the island, enough for a week. You’ll be leaving after breakfast. Is that okay?”
“Yes, I’m fine. How shall I pay for them?”
“The guild will pay for the food since the guild is involved in this.”
Did they make a profit from this?
After breakfast, Camille-san returned a short while later.
“The guild is supposed to assemble at Wataru-san’s magic ship in order to keep a low profile, so we’ll be leaving soon. Please rest assured that your safety to the magic ship has been secured.”
“Yes, thank you very much.”
I headed for the Japanese-style ship with Camille-san through the city as the morning sun began to rise. It was like a date. I was about to make a light remark when I looked in Camille-san’s direction and saw her earnestly paying attention to the surroundings. …Am I really in such a dangerous position? I was aware of the danger, but was I still naive?
“I see the adventurers are already here.”
“Good morning, everyone from Girasole. This is Wataru-san, the owner of the magic ship.”
Six women greeted us all at once. It’s kind of glamorous.
“Wataru-san, this is everyone from the A-rank party, Girasole.”
“Good morning. My name is Wataru. Nice to meet you.”
I was surprised and confused when I saw the girls… Huh? Is this a dream? There’s the best party in front of me as if all my desires have been formed. Is it possible to have such a group of beautiful women? Am I really dreaming?
“It’s nice to meet you, too. I am Alessia, the leader of Girasole. That’s Dorothea, the sub-leader, and Carla is the one with the shield. The one with the bow is Marina, the magician is Ilma, and the priestess is Claretta.”
Everyone being introduced is very beautiful. Long live the other world.
“Everyone, since more and more people are coming into the harbor, let’s stop with the introductions and get on our way.”
Oops, I completely forgot about the original purpose of the meeting. Yes, beautiful women are important, but first of all, it’s my own life.
“I’m sorry for all the trouble I’ve caused you, Camille-san. Thank you so much.”
“No problem. As for the escort, I’m sure it will be ready by the time you come back. Take care.”
“Yes, I’m off.”
After saying goodbye to Camille-san, I permitted the members of Girasole to board the Japanese-style boat.
“There are blankets in the wooden box, so please feel free to use them. You may use the wooden box as a chair, too.”
“Alright, is there anything we need to be careful of?”
“As long as you are careful not to fall out, you can make yourself comfortable. Shall we go now?”
“Then we’re off.”
Whew, I managed to leave normally. Looking at these girls, I want to get down on my knees and ask them to make me their servant. What is it with this group of beauties? I want to be friends with them, but they are so beautiful that it’s starting to scare me.
If I talk to them carelessly, I’m sure I’ll get beaten up by the fan club members or something. It’s a different world, so they might actually kill me. I don’t want to raise any more death flags.
“Hey, haven’t you met us before? Your voice sounds kind of familiar.”
“Really? I don’t remember anything.”
With such a group of beauties, once you meet them, there’s no way you’ll forget them.
“Dorothea, do you also recognize his voice?”
“Maybe it is the same voice that told us about the bandits at the riverside.”
“Oh, yes, that’s the voice I heard then. Wataru-san, you warned the adventurers on the riverside about the bandits, didn’t you? That was us.”
“Hmm? Ah, you mean the one that said there were about 20 bad guys upstream? It was dark, so I couldn’t see your faces clearly, so I didn’t know if you were from Girasole.”
Were they the people from that time? I thought they were beautiful even by the light of the bonfire, but by the light of day, no words are enough to describe them… They are very beautiful.
“As promised, I’ll buy you a drink when we return from the island. Look forward to it.”
It seems that I had raised a death flag without realizing it. I would love to have a drink with them, but if that were to happen, I would have more enemies. I’m sorry, but I’m going to have to decline.
“No, no, I’m just giving you a warning. As I said at the time, with or without my warning, you guys would have been able to do whatever you wanted to do.”
“That won’t do. I said at that time that I would buy you a drink if we met somewhere. Since we met again, I’ll buy you a drink. You’ll have to accept it.”
I didn’t think we would meet so conveniently. And by the way, a group of this many beautiful women is just too unexpected. At any rate, I would have to confirm Girasole’s reputation and popularity before I could approach them carelessly. First, I need to stall for time.
“Let’s see… now that it is known that this boat can go to the island, I have to hire an escort and all that. Please wait until things calm down and the timing is right.”
“Is that so? If you are busy, there is nothing I can do. Let’s go out for dinner when things settle down.”
“I’ll look forward to the opportunity then.”
I was able to delay it for now. It’s dangerous if I don’t get introduced to a really strong escort. But they are all really beautiful, aren’t they?
The leader, Alessia-san, is a beautiful woman with shining blonde hair, white skin, and big breasts. She looks energetic and is like the sun.
The sub-leader, Dorothea-san, is a dark brown-haired, brown-skinned beauty with large breasts. She has a calm atmosphere and seems to be the coordinator of the group.
Marina-san has short black hair, pure white skin, and large breasts. Her unchanging facial expression and fair skin make her look like a fairy.
Carla-san is, were those bear ears or something? She is a tall, beautiful woman with black hair and large breasts. Her expression is kind, and she is slender even though she is carrying a large shield. It’s very mysterious.
Ilma-san is a fox-eared, blonde-haired beauty with large breasts. She is a perfect example of the word ‘bewitching.’ She is full of mysterious charm.
Claretta-san is a dog-eared, brown-haired beauty with large breasts. Is she what you would call a soft and fluffy type? She’s got a smiley face and a healing effect.
All of them are beautiful and have big breasts. It was a party of beauties full of my favorite features. I still think it’s a dream; there’s definitely a fan club, and if it’s not too dangerous, I definitely want to join.
…Oh, I can see the island now, so it’s time for the sea area to start shaking.
“Everyone, please pay attention; the shaking is about to get worse.”
We made it safely through the difficulty and reached the beach. It doesn’t feel like the boat has slowed down that much with adventurers on board.
“We have arrived safely. Everyone, if you would like to take a break before leaving, I can offer you a cup of tea.”
“Is that okay? Well, that would be a nice treat.”
“Please wait a moment.”
Alessia, the party’s leader, answered on behalf of the group. Let’s get into the spirit and brew some tea.
“This magic boat is very fast and not too bumpy.”
“Is it? I’m glad. Thank you.”
The Japanese-style boat got a surprisingly high evaluation. If Girasole has permission to come to this island, of course, they have been on other small magic ships, and even if I subtract the flattery part, it seems that I can be confident. I boil water and prepare a pot of tea. As for the tea cakes… I don’t have any at the moment. I’ll prepare some next time.
“Here you go.”
I serve the tea to everyone. I can’t say it’s good, but since it’s outdoors, everyone will have to put up with it.
But I had always imagined adventurers to be tough guys. It would be great if people like Girasole were my escorts, but… It will make me so nervous that I don’t think I can handle it.
“Thank you for your hospitality. Well then, we will go into the forest. If everything goes well, we’ll be back in five days. And you, too, be careful of the monsters and don’t go too deep into the island.”
“Yes, I will be careful. Everyone be careful too.”
I watch Girasole walk off into the forest. Whew, it’s nice to be able to talk to a beautiful woman, but I’m so nervous and tired. Well, there are three magic boats docked, so I should say hello.
“Hello, Guido-san. Do you mind if I say hello?”
“Oh, you’re here; it’s okay. This is Carlo. And this is Daniel.”
“Carlo-san, Daniel-san. My name is Wataru. Nice to meet you.”
“”Nice to meet you, too.””
“But you’re lucky to get your first job with Girasole, Wataru.”
Guido-san asked me in a teasing manner.
“Is Girasole famous after all? Everyone was so beautiful that the nervousness of my first job was replaced by the nervousness of being on a ship with beautiful women.”
“They are so famous. I also get nervous when I have Girasole on board.”
I guess it makes everyone nervous, doesn’t it? After all, they are so beautiful, aren’t they? I think the possibility of the existence of Girasole’s fan club has also increased. Oh well. For now, let’s ask Guido-san and the others what I want to ask them.
“Um, I have a question I’d like to ask you all.”
“What is it?”
“Actually, when I reported that I had reached the island, I was perplexed because I was told that it would be dangerous if I didn’t hire an escort and that the conversation had become very important. Have you all been in danger?”
“Did Wataru come to this island without knowing about the danger?”
“Yes, I had just arrived in the southern city, and since I had obtained a magic boat, I just took on the challenge because I heard it would be profitable.”
“Is that so? I’ve been in danger, too, and I’ve gotten myself into trouble. I know Carlo and Daniel did, too.”
“So, Wataru, make sure you hire a good escort. Also, since there are troublesome requests, tell them that you only accept requests through the merchant guild. If you accept a request privately, they will try to trap you or mess with you.”
“They really target you, huh? I heard that the merchant guild will introduce me to an escort, so I’ll make sure I hire one.”
I had a little hope that the merchant guild might be exaggerating, but it looked like the danger was real. The stories of those with actual experience carry weight.
“You should do that. And if you have a merchant guild attached to you, make sure that all contracts and requests go through the merchant guild. Anyone who doesn’t want to do that is trying to cheat you.”
“Okay, thank you very much.”
“Yes, good luck.”
After parting with Guido-san and the others, I returned to my boat and organized my belongings. I see that the members of Girasole have properly folded the blankets and put them away in the wooden boxes. The food I got from the merchant guild is… bread, dried meat, vegetables, and flour, huh? There is enough quantity. Thank you, Camille-san.
Now that I have nothing else to do, I think I’ll make the chicken soup. I put the pot on the charcoal fire and simmered the chicken broth over a non-boiling flame to remove the lye. How long should I cook it? I guess I’ll just have to taste and experiment.
I’m bored, so I observe the sea with the pot by my side. What’s that? Isn’t that kelp? But I thought kelp grows in the cold sea. So I approach it with the Japanese-style boat and try to retrieve it with a spear. It looks like kelp. Let’s ask Guido-san about it.
“Excuse me, Guido-san. Do you know if this seaweed is edible?”
“Hmm? Yes, you can eat that seaweed, but it doesn’t taste good. Didn’t you bring any food?”
“No, I have enough food. I used to eat something similar to this seaweed back home, so if this is edible too, I will try various things. Thank you very much.”
I collected some kelp and laid it out on the beach. I think it should be dried, so let’s turn it over and see how it goes. I’ll train with weapons, watching the pots and pans. When the training is finished, let’s look for slime.
