Chapter 458 – Once Again, I Realized I am a Father

I contacted Village One, Village Two, and Village Three to confirm their safety.

It seems like their buildings are okay.

I left my snow removal work to someone else and went to Alfred’s room to apologize.

「I’m sorry about earlier.」

To be honest, I don’t think there’s a problem with how Alfred handled the incident in Village Five.

Perhaps society would have defended him too.

In fact, as village chief, there’s not even a single reason for me to scold Alfred.

However, I think it would be bad for him to depend on the protection of society on whatever he does.

Therefore, I scolded him as a parent.

His brothers, Ririus, Riguru, and Ratte, have done something dangerous because of him.

He should reflect as the elder brother.

What I’m apologizing for is because I did not explain it to him.

I will thoroughly chew it in my explanation.

Ah, you don’t have to be so depressed.

You now know why I scolded you. Make best use of it next time.

I also think you being grounded is a little too much but it’s dangerous for children to wander around during snow removal work.

Look around.

So much snow.

There is still snow on buildings and trees.

It is dangerous if it falls.

I said you are to be grounded for three days but I’ll let you go out once the snow removal is over.

Stay still in your room for now.

Hnn?

Ah, I’ll visit your siblings next door one by one.

Of course, I’ll go to Ursa and Nutt too.

Don’t worry.

Alfred will be nine years old next year.

It has been nine years since I’ve become a father.

I’m still a newbie.

It’s hard to raise a child.

After going around the children’s rooms, I took a break.

I’m tired.

Other than Alfred, everyone’s dissatisfied with Alfred being grounded.

「As the eldest brother, he shouldn’t have left his younger siblings do something dangerous.」

Even so, they were not convinced.

When I was troubled on how to convince them, Ann came and rephrased what I’m trying to say.

「As the eldest brother, Alfred-sama took the responsibility for the blunder of his little brothers.」

That’s not what I want to say but they are already convinced so I can’t correct it.

I heard that it is not good for children if adults flip their words over and over.

Also, don’t take the word “blunder” seriously.

Take it easy, take it easy.

Hahaha.

The most difficult opponent was Ursa.

Because Hakuren’s not here.

If she’s here, I would have left Ursa to her but she’s not so it can’t be helped.

I’ll do it as a father.

「I know you’re thinking about Big Tree Village but you don’t have to deal with it yourself. Talk to an adult nearby. Why couldn’t you do it?」

「….sorry.」

It took an hour for me to hear Ursa’s apology.

「Since Gol, Sil, and Bron are gone, you suddenly became the eldest sister. You did your best. Well done. But from now on, try to rely on adults more.」

I hugged Ursa tightly.

….that was really hard.

I didn’t mean to leave it to them but I’m thankful for their mothers.

「Village chief, the first stage of snow removal has been completed.」

One of the high elves came to report.

I only intended to leave for a while, my apologies for taking a long time.

The first stage of snow removal is removing snow to the point that it is possible to move around the residential area.

「Thank you for your hard work. That’s it for today. Let’s continue tomorrow.」

The sun is about to set.

「Got it. I’ll inform those who are going to the ranch area and fruit area.」

「Please. And don’t slip.」

Night.

I’ve gathered the mothers who evacuated to Village Five.

In that incident, they are completely unsupervised by the mothers.

That’s especially true for Loo, who’s supposed to be the overseer.

That’s the reason why I sentenced Loo with no research for 10 days.

Loo may have trusted Alfred too much but they are in an unfamiliar territory.

Someone should have kept an eye on them or at least let them be in a place where they could see them.

This might sound bad but you can trust Alfred but don’t trust them too much.

They are still children.

What I just said can’t be said in the presence of children.

This time, everyone should take responsibility.

However, the pregnant Gran Maria, Ann who was taking care of Gran Maria, and Hakuren who left to help Doraim are not included.

Hakuren still hasn’t come back yet.

I’ll punish the rest.

「One month, no snusnu.」

The place was covered with screams.

Yeah yeah, I know it’s a cruel punishment.

「Don’t worry, I’ll join you with your punishment.」

It is not only the mothers who are at fault.

Even if it is for the village, I’m also at fault since I did not evacuate with them.

Because of that, I’ll receive punishment too.

I also won’t have snusnu for a month.

When I told them that, I was surrounded by the mothers and was told to sit in seiza.

「We understand that both us, the mothers, and you, the father, have faults. However, we are not convinced with the punishment. Let’s talk.」

Areh?

Did you practice those lines?

It’s strange that they are all saying the same thing at once.

Eh, y-you’re deceiving….

We talked.

The mother’s punishment: 10 days no snusnu, and 30 days no flirting.

Father’s punishment, three days in Village Five.

I heard that I’m not that recognized in Village Five.

I’ll work hard.

    A pastor, a doctor, and an engineer were waiting one morning for a particularly slow group of golfers.
    The mechanic fumed, “What’s with these guys? We must have been waiting for fifteen minutes!”
    The doctor chimed in, “I don’t know, but I’ve never seen such ineptitude!”
    The pastor said, “Hey, here comes the greens keeper. Let’s have a word with him.”
    “Hi George. Say, what’s with that group ahead of us? They’re rather slow, aren’t they?”
    The greens keeper replied, “Oh yes, that’s a group of blind firefighters. They lost their sight saving our clubhouse from a fire last year, so we always let them play for free anytime.”
    The group was silent for a moment.
    The pastor said, “That’s so sad. I think I will say a special prayer for them tonight.”
    The doctor said, “Good idea. And I’m going to contact my ophthalmologist buddy and see if there’s anything he can do for them.”
    The mechanic said, “Why can’t these guys play at night?”

    1. lycopene322

      For that mechanic, no snu snu for 10 days….

    2. jorgelotr

      Is he a mechanic or an engineer? He’s introduced as an engineer and his response is estereotypical engineer-like, but the other two times he’s called a “mechanic”…

    > VC: “It has been nine years since I’ve become a father.”
    Another interpretation: “it has been over nine years since I already give up my privacy every night.”

    > 「One month, no snusnu.」
    I FEEL I AM BEING PUNISHED INSTEAD FOR KNOWING NO SNU SNU IN ONE MONTH CHAPTERS (joke only)!
    At east it become 10 days only.
    But, even there’s no snu snu for one month, just the remaining girl who cannot compete on the intimidation game will be surging in VC rooms.
    Thats exciting….

  3. alf

    That’s realy a hard punishment for them

  4. zikbad

    Thank you kindly~

    Oh wow… they were prepared for this eventuality lmao. Sasuga Hiraku, your wives love you dearly~

  5. Alfard

    Surrender Village Chief, you can’t scape from snusnu

    I like what VC try to do. Because Big Tree Village is so high and mighty and too much pride so that the childen can’t lower their head and apology? That sound so wrong. Remember when VC meet the Titan for the first time? That time VC lower his head and apology to the titan for what Hakuren doing. Ancestor-san so shock about that thinking that the king shall not lower his head that easy. But at the same time. Ansestor-san like what VC doing, think that the world would be a better peach and can avoid a lot of stupid conflict if only the king&nobel can lower their head and apology. (just think of real life, the son of the presiden/king can’t lower his head and apology because of their status. What do you, citizen of the country, think?)

    1. bear

      except BTV childrens are not in the wrong. they’ll explain it in more details some chapters later so didnt want to spoiled it here.

      king or president cant apologize easily cuz they bring face of their own country/kingdom, not only themself it also could give dissadvantage for their own country/kingdom and other party could use it as “debt” to get advantage in future deal, it not necesarry because they have high pride. imagine your president apologize a lot and because of that your country got lot of bad deal with other country that suck your natural ressources for example, as citizen are you gonna happy about that?

      1. Chronoa

        Well, here in Asia, our citizen will surely more happy if the president lower their head and apology for what ever to us citizen. In the end, our tax is their salary. The president are nothing more then us citizen’s servant.

      2. bear

        your example on VC apologizing to titan on ancestor PoV are about the leader apologizing to different parties like one country to other country, not leader to their own citizen.

        > (just think of real life, the son of the presiden/king can’t lower his head and apology because of their status. What do you, citizen of the country, think?)

        yes, they shouldnt when they not in the wrong because they also bring their country face, in this case alfred also bring BTV face as next successor. alfred not in the wrong and shouldnt apology to them when its V5 childrens who showing hostility first. I aware v5 childrens doing that because their loyalty to v5 but still they in the wrong in this situation.

        in real life president’s son have some lax because they not necesarry will become next president.

  7. sense-san

    The punishment sounds more like a vacation for the Village Chief to be honest.

  8. Squirfail

    im pretty sure 1 month no snusnu is a reward for VC,you escape artist

    1. Countrymage

      Too bad it didn’t work, he’s been sentenced to one month of servicing the branch office.

  9. XsaluteZero

    Thank for the chapter ^^

    Nice try, Hiraku, Nice try XD

  10. Aaaa

    Isn’t 10 days no snusnu and 30 days banned on sweet products?

  11. Flrncitly06

    Yepp i can imagine their faces after Vc mentioned the 1 month no snusnu and alsoo youka should’ve warned the v5 vikllagers that vc’s children were there for a while

  12. Rifaman

    it’s nice to see him be a dad for his children and he give them fair punishment while also protecting them. too bad didn’t work for the wives tho

  13. Elisus

    It seems so strange that Alfred is 9 years old and yet this is the first time I remember VC having a conversation with him.

  14. anjingkudis

    Why those the V5 kids didn’t recognize VC’s kids? Didn’t they have a big parade of whole BTV hierarchy?

    1. bear

      parade only happen in BTV, only V1-4 residents coming while V5 just yoko n 2 ex-4 heavenly kings

  15. Wei Chen

    VC: “For me, there is no winter. Just the wind that smells fresh before the snu snu.”

  16. Carlos Ipiales

    Jajaja 30 dias sin snusnu jaja me agrada el traductor y ahora que el prota lo dijo, sigo sin poder creer que ya lleva alrededor de 10 años en ese mundo jaja y contanto ser inmortal alrededor, ni se ha de notar el paso del tiempo jaja
