Chapter 180.4

But she has her circumstances too, so if she says she doesn’t like people and doesn’t want to be with people, then it can’t be helped .

I myself went into hiding in the forest before for similar reasons, so I won’t force her to get along with me .

And personally, I think it’s refreshing that she’s so blunt .

That being said, if it’s not possible to save her favor for later, then unfortunately, I really don’t have anything I need help with right now . At most, there’s Hyuzu-san and the others, who’ve been knocked out could, but— AHH!

“I completely forgot…” [Ryouma]

“Oh? Did you find something you need help with?” [Yui]

“I forgot to prepare a gift for Hyuzu-san and Rurunez-san… You know, a gift for the wedding . I was planning on thinking about what to get, but it ended up completely slipping my mind instead . ” [Ryouma]

“If you need a gift, then wouldn’t that suffice? I don’t think anyone could really find a better gift than that . ” [Yui]

She was looking at the ceremonial hall we built . On the decorated pedestals were the three idols, but…

“That’s that, and this is this . Besides, I didn’t build the ceremony hall all by myself . There were a lot of people who helped me . As for the idols, those were commissioned too, so they can’t count either . ” [Ryouma]

“I don’t think anyone would really find fault with you if you didn’t give anything after everything you’ve done… But if that’s how you feel, then I guess you should prepare something . Wedding gifts are pretty much decided, and I’ve had plenty of experience watching weddings . ” [Yui]

“In that case, do you think it would be possible for you to use that experience of yours, to find me a gift that won’t trouble the bride and groom, will be suitable for the occasion, and at the same time, is not common?” [Ryouma]

“But, of course . Just give me a second . Only, are you really sure this is your wish? I’m sure I told you that I will only be giving you one favor . ” [Yui]

“Yes! This’ll do! After all, this is what’s troubling me the most right now!” [Ryouma]

It’s already nighttime . Even if I tried to get something, the only time I’ll have to buy it is early in the morning, so it would really save me a lot of trouble if she could pick out a gift that I could prepare right now .

“…Alright then . An unexpected wish, but a wish all the same . As a professional at matchmaking, with my pride as a fairy that has successfully tied over 1,000 weddings on the line, I shall teach you a suitable gift that will not cause the bride and groom any problems, that will surely elate them, and that can be prepared now . ” [Yui]

“Really!?” [Ryouma]

“Yes . Now lend me your ear…” [Yui]

When I heard what she whispered into my ears, I couldn’t help but become doubtful for a second .

“Isn’t that unsuitable for a wedding present?” [Ryouma]

“Normally, yes, so use that for your material . That’s something you brought with you, right? I noticed that you still had some left over . ” [Yui]

“By ‘that’? Do you mean ‘that’?” [Ryouma]

“In the end, superstitions are like some kind of word play in that how they’re received depends on the person . All that really matters is that the recipient is happy… If you’re worried, then just say this when you hand over the present—” [Yui]

It was in that way that the fairy that proclaimed herself as the familiar of another otherworlder taught me the secret plan of gift giving .

I was troubled by her sudden demands, but thanks to her, I was able to remember something important, so I’ll just call it even . More importantly, I need to get to work now . I wouldn’t have to hurry so much if it was just something simple, but producing something I can be confident in takes time . I need to hurry!

By the way, I left the four wasted drunks to a person from the manor that I came across on the way back to my room .
