The next day .

“Barley Tea, was it? Yeah, uh… Three of that, and then two orders of water . This is enough, right?” [Customer]

“Yes!” [Ryouma]

I’m tending to the store first thing in the morning . I can use Ice Magic, so I’m in charge of the drinks .

“Sorry to keep you waiting! 3 orders of barley tea and 2 orders of water . ” [Ryouma]

“Wow, that’s really cold . This is great . Thanks . ” [Customer]

“Please enjoy~ Next customer!” [Ryouma]

“Two barely tea please . ” [Customer 2]

A few hours passed in the blink of an eye as I dealt with customer after customer, and then a face I was acquainted with appeared .

“Next~ …Ah, Jeff-san!” [Ryouma]

“Looks like the stalls are a success . ” [Jeff]

“Thanks to you . ” [Ryouma]

“Anyway, give me seven orders of barley tea . ” [Jeff]

“Understood . ” [Ryouma]

I quickly prepared the tray and the barley tea .

“Did you come with your friends?” [Ryouma]

“Don’t know if I’d call them that, but they’re some people you know . Look . ” [Jeff]

“?” [Ryouma]

When I looked toward the direction he pointed at, I spotted some familiar faces…

“Oh, it’s Berk and the guys . ” [Ryouma]

It was the 6-man novice adventurer party . They seem to have split up and were buying food from our stalls .

“You gave them some advice recently, yeah? You advised them to talk to other adventurers?” [Jeff]

“Ah… Yeah, I did . Wait, do you mean?” [Ryouma]

“Yep . That old man, Wogan, introduced them to me and now I have to watch over them . ” [Jeff]

“Really? That’s great to hear . Here . ” [Ryouma]

“Yeah . Good luck . ” [Jeff]

After paying, Jeff-san left and rendezvoused with Berk and the others .

I didn’t think Jeff-san would end up taking care of them, but he’s a skilled adventurer himself and he also comes from the slums . He might be able to understand Berk and the others better . Although it’s not really any of my business, it puts me at ease to know .

After that they enjoyed the food and then went back home . Apparently, they were together for the festivities . As Jeff-san watched over the overly enthusiastic novice party, he left with a smile on his face .

10 minutes later . Another familiar face showed up .

“Yo . ” [Wogan]

“Welcome!” [Ryouma]

It was the guild master of the adventurers guild . Wogan-san came with Tigger-san from the weapon shop .

“Barley Tea for me . You?” [Wogan]

“I’ll have the same . ” [Tigger]

“Understood! Sure is rare to see you together, though . ” [Ryouma]

“Really? We might look like this, but we used to be on the same party . ” [Wogan]

“Huh, really?” [Ryouma]

First I’ve heard of that .

“It’s a story from before we retired . ” [Tigger]

“Tigger has always had a good eye for equipment . On that regard, he was the best in our party . He was also particular with money, so he managed our party’s funds . After he retired, he moved full time into the weapon industry . ” [Wogan]

“I didn’t have good eyes . You were all just sloppy . If I left you alone, you’d spend all your money on liquor and women, and then wake up the next day without a single suit . ” [Tigger]

“We were young . And besides, it was a fitting lifestyle for an adventurer . No?” [Wogan]

“Even if you tell me that…” [Ryouma]

If he’s looking for affirmation, I’m not sure he’ll find it from me .

“Don’t sweat it . It’s better you don’t copy him . ” [Tigger]

“What was that?” [Wogan]

“You two sure get along well . ‘Freeze’ Sorry to keep you waiting . ” [RYouma]

“So this is barley tea . ” [Wogan]

“Is this enough?” [Tigger]

“Yes . Thank you very much . ” [Ryouma]

The two were about to leave, but then Tigger-san seemed to have recalled something .

“You haven’t been coming lately . Is your equipment alright?” [Tigger]

“Yes . It’s still fine . The armor and knife I purchased from you have been serving me well . ” [Ryouma]

“That’s good then… What happened to your search for the katana? Haven’t heard anything from you since then . ” [Tigger]

“Ahh… Lend me your ear for a bit . ” [Ryouma]

I briefly told him about my situation in hushed voices, then he closed his eyes .

“I can’t believe you managed to solve that problem like that . ” [Tigger]

“Sorry . ” [Ryouma]

“If you can use it, then it’s fine . It’s not my place to tell you how to use your familiar . Don’t push yourself . ” [Tigger]

“Thank you very much . ” [Ryouma]

After that he left with Wogan-san, and after taking a breath, went back to town .

“Good day . ” [Nun]

“Welcome!” [Ryouma]

This time it was the sister from the church, Betta-san, who visited . She came with the children of the church . It’s already around noon, huh .

“Thank you for helping us out yesterday . And Bell too . You really saved us . ” [Betta]

“Please don’t mind it . If it’s just something like that, I can help anytime . You’re always taking care of me, after all . And I’ve heard the stories . ” [Ryouma]

In the church, they look after children with no relatives . Their lives are by no means luxurious, but the two sisters are spending money despite having to be thrifty to allow the children to enjoy the festivals like a normal child .

“For 18 people, right?” [Ryouma]

“Yes, please . Come on . You kids too . ” [Betta]

“Please!” [Kids]

“18 orders coming right up . ” [Ryouma]

As the voice of the children simultaneously resounded, pleasant eyes gathered from the people nearby .

“Yesterday we were at the bazaar, but today we’re going to enjoy the festivities!” Said a child I worked with at the church . That kid bought several people’s worth of hot dogs, but he smiled happily just like any child .

“Sorry to keep you waiting . There’s a lot, so it’s a bit heavy . Please be careful . ” [Ryouma]

“Thank you very much . ” [Kids]

“You’re welcome . Next customer~!” [Ryouma]
