Personnel for the Ancient Ruins Protection Committee
Lord Gerberga jumped out of my arms and returned to Luchila.
He flew up to Luchila’s shoulder and gently pressed into her cheek.
“Thank you, Lord Gerberga.”
And then Serulis hugged both of them.
Serulus nodded satisfactorily to herself.
“Do you have to wait until you’re an adult to start restoring the tribe?”
“Yes. I think so.”
“I will help you when the time comes. Don’t worry.”
Luchila wiped away the tears and smiled.
Still, what exactly did you have to do for this restoration?
Was it about the land? Or blood relatives?
In any case, it was clear that Lord Gerberga was incredibly important to it.
I should probably tell Eric now, so he could ensure that the land would be reserved for them.
The rest could be dealt with later.
Milka laughed and said,
“Is that why you didn’t want to take a bath? Because you would have to take your clothes off?”
“I see. We all thought you just hated baths!”
Milka said as she slapped Luchila repeatedly on the back.
“We were worried that you liked being dirty!”
“Actually…I like baths.”
“I see. I’m so glad you don’t like being dirty.”
I don’t think anyone actually likes being dirty.
But I understood what she meant. It was the opposite of someone who was obsessively clean.
“Well, now that we know the truth, you can bathe with us!”
“Yes! That is only right!”
Shia and Kathe said. And so they all went to the bathing room together.
Only the old men and beasts were left.
“…To think that Luchila was a girl. Did you suspect anything, Goran?”
“Not at all. It’s surprisingly hard to tell, you know.”
Shia and Nia’s noses aside, even Serulis had realized it.
It made me wonder if my observation abilities were quite low.
As Goran and I drank wine, Grulf came and rested his face on my knee.
Tama was sitting right behind him.
Lord Gerberga came to rest on my shoulder.
“Ruck. You were always so popular with animals.”
“Really? Well, maybe you are right.”
“Tama, come over here.”
Goran called Tama over and tousled his fur.
After some time, the girls returned.
“Ruck. We should take a bath as well!”
“Indeed! We can take our food and drinks with us.”
“That’s a great idea!”
And so we headed to the bathing room. Grulf and Lord Gerberga followed after us.
Tama didn’t like to bathe, and so he followed after Philly.
We drank in the tub and talked.
“I know that I said that I would help, but what do you think needs to be done about Luchila’s tribe?”
“I don’t know. Shouldn’t you just let Eric handle everything?”
Drinks always tasted better once you had nothing left to worry about.
