Chapter 169 – Jack (I)

My name is Jack.

I am the leader of the migrants gathered by Fushu.

I’m only familiar with some of them.

But there are those I know well too.

My wife’s acquaintances are also there.

But that’s not the reason I became the leader, it’s because of the atmosphere.

It happened all too soon.

But I don’t feel bad.

However, I think that there are others who might be better candidates.

We’ve discussed it for some time but, why aren’t they stepping forward?

Maa, okay, I’ll receive the trouble of being the leader.

When we arrived at our destination, we were surprised continuously.

Though the others were surprised with the never before seen demi-humans, I was surprised at the inn we were guided to.

It looks like a wooden inn but the room was luxurious.

There are a bed and a curtain too.

Moreover, when you seat on the chair, it doesn’t rattle.

The desk is also flat.

There’s no bump or whatsoever.

Amazing.

What’s more, isn’t this a room for couple?

Is it really OK for us to be in a private room?

This is something unprecedented.

Usually, for a room of this size, 10 people should be here.

If this is a cruel place, it won’t be a surprise to put the 20 of us here.

I tried lying down on the bed…..soft!

Is it really alright?

For us to be using such a bed…..

I look at my wife.

It looks like she feels the same.

We sat on the floor at the corner of the room until we were called.

They said that this is our welcome banquet.

But deep in my heart, there’s only despair.

What are the foods in front of us…..

Viking style?

I can take and eat as much as I like?

They said that but I don’t get why.

Can it be…..no, we are going to get killed.

This is our last supper.

It doesn’t seem to be our last supper.

It was delicious.

It was delicious enough to move anyone.

And it doesn’t seem that those are their best dishes.

I feel ashamed remembering how fast I ate.

Looking back at my eating habit until now…..I almost teared up.

Night.

We sleep in the room.

I’m too scared to sleep on the bed so I sleep on the floor.

My wife did the same.

We sleep soundly.

Or so I thought. A little later, I get up and lie down on the bed.

It’s soft after all.

Amazing.

Later, my wife also lies down and roll on the bed.

She likes it too.

She fell asleep immediately….hey, you’re drooling.

I was beaten up.

Breakfast and lunch were also delicious.

I never thought we will be given with those kinds of foods again but now I’m looking forward to our next meal.

However, it is never a good thing to eat food for free.

I know that we are given food because we are expected to be citizens of the new village.

I know that is the case.

The first thing should be getting familiar with us.

The people here are strange but they are not bad people.

Fushu also said that.

We have to live our new life here.

We received explanation.

We also heard about each couple having a new house.

There are also various things explained.

That is something we wanted to confirm but we didn’t hear the essential things.

Thinking about it, I unintentionally raised a question.

「We now have a general understanding about the life in the village. However, what kind of work should we do?」

Yeah.

It’s about work.

What should we do?

Please say it.

But I didn’t expect the answer.

Get used to life here for now.

Get used….

Getting used to life is something that will only take three days.

It seems like we’re going to be transferred to the place where we live.

Horse-drawn carriage?

That looks like something only nobles use.

Oi oi, what’s that strange thing attached behind it?

Well, I don’t want to walk.

Eh?

Two of us need to ride centaurs?

…….

I have the leader’s privilege.

I’ll ride the carriage….no, there’s something strange behind it.

It became a janken tournament.

I think this is the most serious janken I’ve done in my whole life.

Nevertheless, I’m riding a centaur.

It’s because my wife lost.

There’s no choice but have her husband substitute her.

「N-nice meeting you.」

I bowed politely to the centaur who carefully picked me up.

It is an etiquette I learned from Fushu.

The centaur was not scary.

She walks slowly and talks a lot with me.

I might have been in a better situation rather than in the carriage that has something behind it.

We arrived.

It is a beautiful village.

I’m surprised.

The wolves and spiders like the ones we met at the inn of the village are lining up.

Amazing.

Did they teach them that to surprise us?

No no, no way….

We were told that we could freely decide which house we want to live in.

……….

I consulted my wife about which house should we choose.

The truth is, there is already a house that I’ve been looking at for a while.

It seems like my wife is also looking at a house for a while.

We pointed our fingers at the same time.

How nice would it be if we both pointed at the same house? Unfortunately, that’s not the case.

We compared the two houses and decided on one.

It’s a secret which finger we followed.

The house is fully furnished.

There are chairs, tables, shelves…

They are excellent furniture.

There was a bed in the bedroom.

I expected it to be soft but it’s only a frame.

I think they are already thoughtful enough.

But when Mamu, tour beastkin caretaker, saw my disappointment, she gave me the soft part.

Moreover, in only a few minutes.

C-can we really sleep on it?

Great.

It’s like a dream.

Now that we decided where we will live in from now on, there was another welcome banquet that evening.

Dishes that are different from yesterday are lined up.

They’ll surely be delicious again.

By chance, have we gone to a very rich village?

If so….I want to stay here.

No, I want to live here.

I’ll do my best.

I displayed the nameplate I received from the village chief with my wife at the front door of our house.
