Lura: “Lilly, could you go find us an inn again?”
Lilly: “Yes, Captain Lura.”
Lilly nods to Lura’s orders.
Lura: “I’ll be dropping off the [weapon] to our friends. Oh, and I’ll be spending night over there, so you don’t need to rent a room for me.”
Lilly: “YーYes! I understand!!”
Lilly nods respectfully to Lura’s words.
Lura: “Okay then. I’ll see you tomorrow.”
And with that, Lura disappears with the carriage into the city somewhere.
Lilly: “Okay! Let’s go find ourselves an inn!”
Edward: “Leave that to me.”
Igni: “What’s wrong, Edward?”
Edward: “I’ve been here a few times. If you’re looking for a decent inn, leave that to me.”
With that Edward proudly puffs out his chest. Well, he is a nobleman so letting him decide the inn should be no problem. The other three’s opinions align, and they let Edward take the lead.
This man had a solid record so far when he chose the restaurant for the celebration party.
Igni and Iris nodded without any hesitation when Edward said he will do it.
Edward: “We’re here.”
And the inn that Edward pointed to was…….normal. It looked absolutely normal.
There was nothing in particular that was special or strange about it.
Igni’s hopes were a little dashed, so he asks Edward again. Maybe he’s joking.
Edward: “Yeah. This is the best inn we can stay at with the current budget we have.”
Igni: “Oh, I see!”
Lilly: “Way to go, Edward!”
Edward: “Hmph! Complimenting me won’t get you anywhere.”
And with that, Edward looks the other way from everyone else.
The good part about Edward is his ability to set aside his standards and wants and look at the overall financial situation of the group.
Igni: “Edward, I think you’ll be a good businessman or investor in the future.”
Edward: “Nobles have to manage businesses and investments, so you have to be able to do at least this much easily.”
But the way Edward said these words were eerily quieter than usual. Everyone around him noticed and tilted their head at him. Igni felt a slight darkness within Edward, but since Edward was a man, he ignored it.
Lilly: “Then let’s go reserve a room.”
Iris: “I want to room with Sir Igni!!”
And per the norm, Iris put in her usual request.
But at that, a slight pain crosses Lilly’s chest.
And her emotions also respond to the pain.
Lilly: “Of course not! Men and women are separate!!”
Iris: “But why～...”
And Iris is disappointed yet again.
But Lilly’s frustration only increases seeing Iris this way.
Lilly: (........why am I feeling so upset right now?)
Without understanding the pain or frustration, Lilly enters the inn and finishes the paperwork to get their rooms.
Iris: “Hey, Lilly.”
Lilly: “What is it?”
As they enter the room, Iris immediately begins to talk with Lilly.
Iris: “Why are you so cold?”
Lilly: “I’m not cold.”
