Inspecting the Mansion
Shia and Serulis seemed very excited.
“Thank you. Be careful.”
“Don’t worry about us!”
Shia’s tail was waving wildly.
“Yes, don’t worry!”
I wasn’t sure about Serulis. I was a little worried.
“Serulis. I mean it, be careful.”
And with that, Shia and Serulis left the mansion.
After seeing them off, Luchila said,
“I’m worried too.”
“Yes. But I think Shia will take care of her.”
Even Gerberga seemed unconvinced.
I petted him as he cooed softly on my lap.
He was especially fluffy in the space between his wings.
He clucked comfortably.
And then we left the drawing room.
“Alright, I’m going to go out and by some food for today.”
“I can go for you.”
“Really? Hmm, alright. Thank you.”
“Don’t mention it!”
“Just get anything you like. I don’t mind what it is, but get a lot of it.”
I said and handed him some money.
“Leave it to me!”
Luchila said as he ran out.
Gerberga said as he saw Luchila leave. There was still a possibility that Gerberga would be attacked, and so I tried to keep him close by as much as possible.
“Lord Gerberga. We’re off to the kitchen.”
Gerberga looked quite pleased with this declaration.
He clucked quietly and occasionally flapped his wings.
Milka and Grulf were in the kitchen.
“Ah, Mister Locke. What is it?”
Milka had changed her clothes now.
She wasn’t wearing clothes that were fit for an aristocrat daughter, but clothes that would be easy to work in.
But she still looked very pretty.
Her hair was nicely brushed and there was no dirt on her face.
She had always been pretty, and so she looked nice by merely being clean.
“I was thinking about making a pantry to preserve food in.”
“I see! Is there anything I can do to help?”
“No, I’m fine. I see that you changed.”
“Yes. It would be a waste to ruin those clothes!”
“This suits you nicely as well.”
“Hehehe. Thank you.”
Milka said bashfully.
These clothes were nothing like the rags she used to wear.
It was made of high-quality material.
“Did Serulis give it to you?”
“She did. Sister Serulis has given me a lot of clothes.”
“She’s very generous.”
I would have to thank her later.
“I can’t be more grateful to her!”
Milka said as she cleaned.
“You didn’t have to start cleaning today.”
