Chapter 62: Wearing the clothes is embarrassing
“……It’s unexpectedly far.”
I wonder how long we have been following the girl in question for.
We have been brought to a street with less people walking on it than the streets from before.
We had asked her to guide us to the inn, but there were absolutely no signs of us arriving.
“We’re almost there~”
The girl says, lightly waving this way.
I feel like I’ve been hearing the same thing for a while now……
“Aura, you guys aren’t tired?”
We’ve walked quite a distance, so I dare say they should be tiring soon.
I’ve got my recovery magic though, so relieving fatigue could be done easily.
However, disregarding my worries, Lily spoke with a lively voice and stretched out her hands.
Aura and Tré also appeared to remain composed, and their breathing wasn’t disturbed either.
Having checked everyone’s state of fatigue, I once again return my gaze to the girl but she was nowhere to be found, maybe because there were so many people.
“I can’t find her.”
After that, we all looked for her but we never found that girl.
“……And? By the time you realised, your wallet was gone, you say?”
Now, I was being greatly remonstrated by Aura.
The reason for that is, it seems that I had my wallet stolen by that girl from before.
Putting my wallet in my pocket so that I could take it out at any time backfired on me.
“You should put it in a harder-to-steal place!”
“Y-you are quite right……”
If I were asked when it was stolen, it would probably be when I turned around.
Although I would say there wasn’t much in the wallet, I’ve recently been in a position to earn to a certain extent, so it would be quite a large amount to normal people.
To have lost that in an instant…….
I learned firsthand that I can’t be negligent no matter how good the public order in the capital was.
This time, Aura finished without scolding me too much, as though she understood that it was probably stolen while I was concerned about them.
Fortunately, I had previously given some money to Tré so there was no trouble at the inn.
Having finished our discussions, we quickly found an inn by ourselves.
Despite having money, we couldn’t squander too much of it so we decided to only rent a single room for everyone.
Although I say we only rented a single room, we naturally took one with two beds, but…….
“……Haa, we can finally relax……”
Having arrived in the room, I tumbled onto the bed just like that.
Aura and Tré collapsed on the other bed.
However, it seemed like only Lily wasn’t tired yet, and she looked this way with a face that was full of composure.
And I don’t know what she was thinking, but that face was engulfed in a smile as if she had thought up something interesting.
For some reason, she came flying my way from that spot.
Flustered, I sit up and spread my arms out to catch the flying Lily.
Although I was met with a great impact, I somehow succeeded in catching Lily and sat her down on the bed.
Lily, who was kicking and wriggling those pretty and slender legs of hers with all her might while smiling at me to say “that was fun”, was adorable.
I-it’s not like I have any ulterior motives, okay?
“Ah, come to think of it, I had something to give you.”
I address Aura and the others, who had finished entering the bath in turns.
Saying that, what I handed over was the feminine clothing I bought at the clothing store previously.
The clothes I bought at the place that sold those taboo swimsuits.
“Err, this is……?”
Tré asks timidly.
“Well, they did say that the king and them will be preparing clothes, but I thought that proper clothes might be necessary for before we go to the castle.”
“T-thank you very much……!”
Tré says her thanks with teary eyes.
Aura said in a small voice, making a slightly less annoyed face.
Lily was full of vigour as usual, and encircles me while flourishing the clothes.
“T-then maybe I should try it on for a bit……”
After she says that, Aura takes Lily and Tré with her and heads towards the bathroom.
I continued waiting in the meantime.
“I-I tried it on.”
Aura, the first one to leave the bathroom, was obviously dressed in the clothes I bought.
Those clothes were, how should I put it, I feel like they emphasised Aura’s cuteness.
I’m saying this myself, but I might have quite the eye for clothing.
“I-it suits you.”
I normally don’t say that so, as expected, it’s embarrassing
“I-is that so? W-well, they are indeed cute clothes…….”
Aura’s face also turned red, as if wearing the new clothes was embarrassing.
“……But, why were the measurements of this so accurate, I wonder…….?”
However, that was also momentary, and Aura fixed her eyes on me.
Even if I’m asked why, I just bought that at one glance, so it was hard to answer.
It would be good if I could convey that smoothly one way or another, but I don’t know what to say.
While hugging herself with her own two arms as if trying to cover her body, Aura returned to the bathroom.
……Next time, let’s buy some of a different size.
I pledged in my heart――
