Trucker enjoy his day off
Due to delivery schedule, there were zero deliveries the next day. In other words, it was my first day off in a long time. When I mentioned this at dinner, Shiny said happily.
“Well, then, why don’t we all go shopping together?”
“I’ve been so busy lately that I haven’t been able to check out ‘Stardust’….., and also clothes, shoes, bags, and so on.”
“I’m interested in restaurants. I heard that a recently opened restaurant called ‘Spicy Restaurant’ serves very spicy food with plenty of special spices. I would definitely like to go there once.”
“Kirie, do you like spicy food?”
“Yes, I do.”
So, today’s plan was decided.
We will all go shopping and have dinner at Kirie’s spicy restaurant. By the way, we are going on foot instead of using the truck. We have to walk once in a while, don’t we?
Let’s enjoy our day off for the first time.
I have often driven the truck in the town, but it might be the first time for me to walk. The scenery looks different.
“First, I want to see the new Stardust accessories!! Then, I want to go to the clothing store for a new skirt and a hat.”
“Oh, Mireina gets excited when it comes to fashion. Don’t worry about it.”
“I see. This is interesting ……., I got to know a new Mireina.”
“You are absolutely enjoying it.”
We arrived at the busiest area near the center of town. Mireina’s excitement was so high that Kirie, seeing this for the first time, raised an eyebrow.
“Fufu. I’m going to pick out clothes and accessories that will suit you all today.”
“Take care of them, Mireina. And don’t make them into dress-up dolls.”
“I don’t mind because it’s fun for me. Shiny is cute, and I think we should both be dress-up dolls.”
“Wait a minute.”
Hmmm. Will Shiny really be able to escape from the clutches of Mireina and Kirie? I’ll answer when they ask while carrying my luggage. I’m just a man, I don’t know anything about fashion.
“Let’s buy Kota-san a new belt, a sturdy one that he can wear with his work clothes.”
“I think that’s a good idea. How about accessories?”
“How about some clothes for the president instead of accessories? For example, a hat.”
“Good idea!! Then let’s get going!!”
A belt. I hope it’s not a “Sengoku” style belt. If it is such a belt, I’ll never forgive them! Hats are nice. I imagine all truckers wear hats.
We all walked for a few minutes. I noticed that we were the center of attention.
The attention was not on me, but on the three beautiful girls walking in front of me. They were walking happily and joyfully, and they were beautiful girls in everyone’s eyes. And they were the best of the best. Take a good look at them. They are the employees of my company.
I walked around with a sense of superiority, and arrived at the “Stardust Zenimouke” store. Inside, there were women, adventurers, and young girls, and to say the least, it was uncomfortable.
“Now, here’s where the action begins…”
Mireina, you’re too excited.
After shopping, we came to have lunch. The place is “Spicy Restaurant” recommended by Kirie. We were shown to our seats and sat down.
“My recommendation is the hot stew “Mag Marizardo”. I hear it is called ‘stewed madness’ because of the way your sweat flows like a waterfall when you take a bite.”
Kirie says this without hesitation. What is she talking about?
“I don’t like spicy food.”
“I’ll just have the normal fried rice with spices.”
I’ll have “Mag Marizardo”.
“I’m like Shiny.”
Is Shiny stupid?
I’m not going to stop her. It looks interesting and I want to see how she reacts to it.
After a while, the dish was brought to the table.
“Well, it’s pitch black….. It hurts my eyes.”
“Oh, it’s stewed meat that has turned black because it was made too spicy. Oh, I’m so glad.”
“Oh, it’s not funny!!”
“Hey, Shiny, you don’t look so good.”
“Shiny, you better take it easy …..”
“Ugh, shut up. I’ll eat it!!”
Shiny took a bite of the “Mag Marizardo”.
After a few chews, she smiled.
“What, it’s delicious!?”
Shiny blew up.
Then, her tongue turned red and she began to weep.
“Gbuhhhhhhhh!? Mifu, mifuhhhhhhhhh!?”
“Oh, relax, Shiny, there’s a hot cup of tea for you.”
“Shiny, here, water!”
“Ng…. bwahhhh, ogiyawari‼”
“We’ve got ice, too!”
Shiny finally calmed down and plopped down on the table and didn’t move. I and Mireina ate the food that had been brought to us and said to Shiny.
“Shiny, eat something. Want some fried rice?”
“Would you like some of my marbled tofu?”
“No. I won’t eat anything until ……. tonight.”
“Well, it’s too good to eat, so I’ll just have this one.”
After finishing her own portion, Kirie was eating the “Mag Marizardo” left by Shiny. Seriously, this girl….
“It’s delicious, but it’s a little too spicy. I’d like to have five additional servings.”
We shuddered as Kirie ate it without changing her complexion.
“I had a great time today.”
“Yes, we ate a lot of good food and did a lot of shopping!!”
“Ugh, my tongue still tingles…”
“Hmmm, your lips are so puffed up. May I touch them?”
“Wow!? Don’t reach out your hand, you dummy!”
Ah, I’m so happy. I can’t believe I was able to enjoy my day off surrounded by such beautiful girls. I’ve never been so happy to be alive again. Thank you very much, God.
“I’m refreshed today. Let’s work hard again tomorrow.”
“Leave it to me, President.”
Yeah, I know. Spending the free days together has brought us closer together. It’s not harem by any means, okay? Everyone is important to me, but it’s not ‘love’, it’s ‘like’.
When we returned to our office and home, there was someone at our doorstep.
“Hello, Mireina. I didn’t know you were off today.”
“I’m sorry. It’s our day off, so we don’t really have time to talk about requests.”
“Shiny, don’t say such a thing, the God of Misfortune will give you his blessing.”
“I don’t need that!”
“Hey, be quiet, by the way, Nina, what can I do for you?”
I don’t use honorifics because it’s a private conversation. I may sound too familiar, but I’m younger than her and Nina said that it’s fine.
“Oh. I want to make a request.”
“A guild request, huh?…..”
I don’t have good memories of guild requests. I was attacked by a vicious gorilla monster, and I don’t want to go through that again.
“Don’t worry, you’re in no danger. I need you to deliver a certain thing.”
“A certain something…..?”
“Yes, that’s right. The destination is the heroic kingdom of Olesanjo. I want you to deliver something to the “heroes” there.”
“That’s right. I want you to deliver something to three heroes summoned from another world and a saint in this world.”
I remember that the saint is Kirie’s sister.
But the question is, what to deliver? To be honest, I don’t want to meet a hero summoned from another world. It’s definitely a guy from my homeland, and it’s definitely younger men and women who have been summoned. One male and two females.
“Hey, hero ……, so what kind of dangerous thing is it?”
“Oh… It is the newest type of holy sword developed in the industrial city of Sugedaro.”
“What!? Holy sword!?”
“Yes, it is. Something funny?”
“Oh, no, they can make the Holy Sword.”
“President, a weapon is what you make, isn’t it?”
“Hmm, you say the same thing a hero would say.”
Apparently, I’m crazy. Because, you see, the holy sword is something that was made by the gods, handed down from generation to generation in the royal families, and can only be used by the chosen ones.
“And anyway, you’re offering me the job.”
“Yeah. I thought I’d let you know early because it’s going to be a long-term request. There are a few days until the weapon arrives from Sugedaro. You’ll have to work for a while starting tomorrow, while you let people know you’ll be closed for a while. You can mention the guild’s then.”
“Don’t decide what to do with the guild’s name!!”
“The guild has asked us to do a job for them. The reward is exceptional, right?”
Hmmm, I don’t want to meet a hero, but I’d like to visit Olesanjo. Well, do I go there just for a small trip? Should I tell people that I’ll be away for a while because I have a guild request while I’m working tomorrow?
“Okay. Come back tomorrow and make the request official.”
“Okay, I’ll see you tomorrow.”
With that, Nina left.
“The Kingdom of Heroes, is it?….”
“Niramana is so selfish!!”
“Chris, I think it’s been a while since we’ve seen each other.”
“Heroes, and a newly developed holy sword.”
So my next destination was decided to be the Kingdom of Heroes.
But I hadn’t realized it yet.
I could have figured out the reason for giving a hero the latest model of holy sword with a little thought.
