Day 366

Day 366

Birthday Festival, the start of the last day.

I'm at the «Parabellum Hot Springs», that is vibrant even this early in the morning, receiving Doriane's oil massage.


Laying next to me is the figure of the father elf that has become a regular customer. 

The facial expression, usually full of dignity, falls away and sloppily melts from that grandfather's face. 

I did not fall to those indescribable feelings since they have already become familiar with them, but instead I had been receiving some whispered complaints instead. 

Briefly summarized, it seems that for the past two days, they were struggling to accommodate the elves and beast people drawn by the cheerful voices heard from within the base. If today «Parabellum Hot Springs» does not have an unprecedented event carried out, and if it is not big enough to notice, they would will be overwhelmed by the like of them, to the point that they will not be able to fit them all inside. 

It could be because Father Elf has a relationship with me, I wonder if there were many petitions? 

I had to give my condolences, and only that. 

Besides that, he must have felt rather frustrated, going Gunu Nu. He is not looking good being that desperate. I had to remember the frustration rather. 

That sort of will is not for a pretty child, such as the daughter elf. 

Well put, after receiving a massage, I look around at the state of the festival, which was transferred to the venue nearer «Parabellum Hot Springs», along with father elf. 

Even if an elf is having that much fun, there are still beast people who have are chagrined, or look lost, etc., even others such as a Pig-Orc that has set up a stall to sell pork bun ramen cuisine here. Everything had a sampling of chaos but still, everyone also seemed happy. 

With the added attraction of the skeleton mechanism built for today - the roller coaster beetle and merry-go-round beetle - is one of the sections that are most crowded, it seems a long queue is made. 


Members who are working as staff are moving around happily, so that «Parabellum Hot Springs»  would be even more flooded with clients after this. 

Today is the last day and for others, rather than our own, such as the elves and the beast people, it has become a festival where the local residents take place as the main attraction. 

It was alright for us to have fun on our own for all three days, but to include your neighborhood association is also be important. 

We can also hope that their purse strings are loosening in the festival, but there are other reasons as well, such as, making the case for the building our fellowship with others. 

Just because they can not all fit in the internal base, the «Parabellum Hot Springs» was transported to a different venue so that everyone can freely enter and leave, but even a look at the state of the festival shows that it was the correct answer. 

By the way, instead of working in offices inside, I am processing the garbage that came out from the festival, including those moving the stalls that are no longer needed to a different location, or slowly transporting the people that are tired to a resting location. 

After moving around the crowded «Parabellum Hot Springs», we went on to the special section that was prepared, drinking elf wine with the father elf. 

Kugime gave me a few items that issued as memorabilia, that food made from dragon meat and other labyrinth products, but father elves seemed to like it very much, so that we often ate in silence, not drinking as much as we would have. 


The amount is still lacking a bit, but I wonder if I should not refrain a little more. 

As I thought of other things, the gathering began with Minokichi-kun and Asue-chan. 

The gathering began to increase gradually, until it became like a small banquet. 

I try to make other locations to eat and drink, so that there would be enough places with the same thing if you only look.

Anyway, I enjoyed drinking the sake together.

Also today, the sounds of indulging continued throughout the large forest well into the night.

 “三百六十六日目”

 誕生祭、最終日。


 俺は朝から何時になく活気に満ちている≪パラベラ温泉郷≫にて、ドリアーヌさんのオイルマッサージを受けていた。

 隣には常連客と化している父親エルフの姿がある。

 その表情は威厳などが抜け落ち、だらしなく蕩けている爺のそれである。


 もう見慣れてしまったのでその何とも言えない姿に突っ込む事はしなかったが、その代わりとばかりにブチブチと愚痴を言われてしまった。

 簡単に纏めると、『ここ二日間、拠点内から聞こえてくる陽気な声に興味を引かれたエルフや獣人達を諌めるのに苦労した』らしい。もし今日≪パラベラ温泉郷≫でこれまでにないイベントが行われる、と告知されていなければ、内部に入れてくれないかなどと詰め寄られていたに違いない、とも漏らす。


 父親エルフは俺との関係があるだけに、陳情が多かったのだろうか。

 ご愁傷様、とだけ言っておいた。


 それにグヌヌ、とされたが、父親エルフがやっても絶望的なまでに似合っていない。むしろ苛立ちを覚えてしまった。

 そういうのは、娘エルフなど可愛らしい子がやるべきだろう。


 などはさて置き、マッサージを受けた後、俺は父親エルフと共に≪パラベラ温泉郷≫に会場を移した祭りの様子を見て回る。


 笑顔を浮かべて楽しそうにしているエルフが居れば、的当てなどで負けて悔しそうにしている獣人が居たり、屋台で豚骨ラーメンみたいな料理を出している豚鬼(オーク)が居るなど、色々混沌としているが皆楽しそうにしていた。

 そして今日のために造ったスケルトン機構によるアトラクション――ジェットコースターモドキやメリーゴーランドモドキ――は最も賑わっている区間の一つで、行列が出来ているようだ。


 スタッフとして働く団員達も楽しそうに動き回り、≪パラベラ温泉郷≫はかつて無いほどヒトで溢れているだろう。


 最終日である今日は、俺達ではなく、エルフや獣人など、近隣住民をメインにした祭りとなっている。

 三日間とも俺達だけでやっても良かったのだが、ご近所付き合いも大切だろう。

 祭りで財布の紐が緩むのを期待している、など他にも理由はあるが、親睦を深めるのが主な理由なのは間違いない。


 ただ拠点内部に入れる事はできないので、その代わりに自由に出入りできる≪パラベラ温泉郷≫を会場にした訳だが、祭りの様子を見てもそれが正解だった事が窺える。


 ちなみに、拠点内部で活動しているのは、祭りで出たゴミの処理をしたり、不要になった屋台を別の場所に移動させたり、あるいは疲れからゆっくりと休養している者などが居るが、それはさて置き。


 賑わう≪パラベラ温泉郷≫を回った後、用意した特別区画に移動し、父親エルフと共にエルフ酒を飲み交わした。

 ツマミは飯勇が迷宮産の食材と竜肉を料理した品々を出したのだが、父親エルフは非常に気に入ったらしく、しばし無言で飲んでは食べ、食べては飲んでいた。

 量はまだまだあるのでいいのだが、もう少し遠慮はないのだろうか。


 なんて事を思っていると、ミノ吉くんやアス江ちゃんなども集まりだした。

 次第に集まる数が増え、ちょっとした宴会のようになった。

 飲み食いは別の場所でも出来るようにしているので、探せば同じような事になっている所はあるだろう。


 ともあれ、楽しく酒を飲み交わした。

 今日も、夜までどんちゃん騒ぎの音が大森林に響き続けた。
