Day 349


Today I finished morning training and went out for hunting with my children.


We used bows and arrows yesterday, but this time I decided to use the horn rabbits' horn to remember the old days.

The corners that can only be used to stab, and with a length of about a dagger, the horn sure is nostalgic, reminding me of about a year ago.

Or perhaps, I'm still amazed by everything that has gone down since a year ago.


Normally, it would take several years or even decades to experience it all, but honestly that's how I feel.

Well, I wonder if I will repeat the same things from now on as well.


I take a break and walk around for a while.

The children seem to be taking too much time getting used to it, that seems interesting.

Argento, who praised Auro and Oniwaka, who seemed to be enjoying themselves happily, was struggling. Opushii was straddling jewels while her animal beasts ran around, and being carried on my back is Nicola, who is drawing some patterns on the corner with the magical power sent out from her fingertips.


In such ways, they basically act in a lively manner, quietly disappearing and reappearing from time to time when they find a prey's signs.

The basic performance was good, even though the children were unfamiliar with hunting, they still managed to succeed and, unprecedentedly, we reached the elves village by simply walking in the forest.


I had recently come to the elves village before the Holy War. But as I'm here anyway, I decided to go to Father Elf's house.

I haven't even contacted him, but as he was saying 『Please come at any time without reserve』, so lets make some souvenirs out of the harvested prey this time. Or so I thought, apparently Father Elf is out.

It's disappointing, but it seems after all he is in «Parabellum Hot Springs Resort»

While saying it couldn't be helped, I handed the souvenirs to a servant elf, and when I tried to go home, Daughter Elf came out from the back and took me in for a reception.


Because they would be tired otherwise, we stayed for some snacks served with tea. The snacks are vegetable-based, and the children seemed to like it as some also used the souvenirs. A lighthearted and delicious meal.

While watching it, I changed Nicola's diaper, and proceeded to eat the meal that was cooked in advance directly from the item box.

I usually left that to alchemist-san, but as I was watching how to do it separately, I thought it sure is a bit handy, but it is still in place.


I also stayed with Daughter Elf while talking about the Holy War.

When I wondered about time, about 3 hours had passed. I decided to go home before dusk came, because it was too slow.

At that time, we also left three kinds of demon liquor placed in newly-handmade bottles.

Sudden visits are not a disagreeable, and it is a nice return in which we got a consideration given the fine details.


While thinking that it was a meaningful day, I tasted the sisters' cooking, after being supervised by the Meal Hero.

Oh, no.. A safe base with hot springs and delicious food.

I can't resist but feel a little depraved.

  “三百四十九日目”

 今日も朝の訓練を終えた後、子供達を連れてハンティングに出かけた。


 昨日は弓矢を使ったが、今回は初心を思い出してホーンラビットの角を使う事にした。

 短剣程度の長さで突き刺す事しかできない角は懐かしく、一年近く前を思い起こさせる。

 というか、まだ一年も過ぎていない事に今更ながら呆れてみたり。


 普通なら数年とか、数十年とか、もしくは体験しないだろう諸々が濃縮されているような現在は、正直どうかと思う。

 まあ、これからも同じ事を繰り返すのだろうが。


 気を取り直して、しばし散策。

 慣れない事に子供達も手間取っているようだが、それはそれで面白いらしい。

 楽しそうにはしゃぐオーロと鬼若、を窘めるアルジェントは苦労し。宝石冥獣に跨るオプシーは周辺を駆け回り、背負われているニコラは指先に収縮させた魔力で角に何やら紋様を掘り描いている。


 そんなこんなで基本的には賑やかに行動し、獲物の気配を察知すれば静かに気配を消して忍び寄る。

 基本性能は良いので子供達は不慣れながらも狩りに成功し、大森林を適当に歩いているといつの間にかエルフの里にやって来ていた。


 エルフの里には聖戦前に来たばかりだが、丁度いいので父親エルフ達の家に向かう。

 連絡もしていないのだが『何時でも遠慮せずに来るがよい』と言っていたので、今回狩った獲物を何体かお土産にしよう。と思ったのだが、どうやら父親エルフは留守らしい。

 やはり、≪パラベラ温泉郷≫で惚けているらしい。

 それならしかたない、と言う事でお土産は使用人エルフに渡し、帰ろうとすると、娘エルフさんが奥から出てきて接待してくれた。


 疲れているだろうから、という事で紅茶と共に軽食も出してくれた。子供達も野菜中心ながら、お土産も使用した軽食はお気に召したらしく、バクバクと美味しそうに食べている。

 それを見ながら、俺はニコラのオシメを交換したり、アイテムボックスから予め調理されていた料理を出して食べさせる。

 錬金術師さんに任せきりだったが、分体でやり方は見ていたので、中々手際が良いのではないか、などと思っているのだが、それはさて置き。


 娘エルフさんも交え、聖戦の話をしながらしばし滞在する。

 時間にすれば、三時間程だろうか。予定以上にゆっくりとし過ぎたので、夕暮れ前には帰る事にした。

 その際、新しく手に入れた三種の鬼酒を入れた瓶も置いていく。

 突然の訪問に嫌な顔もせず、細かいところまで配慮された接待をしてもらったお返しだ。


 中々有意義な一日だったと思いながら、飯勇監修の姉妹さん料理に舌鼓。

 あー、駄目だ。温泉と美味い料理がある安全な拠点。

 少し堕落している気がしないでもない。
