I have been waiting for this!
“Hah~ I’m tired…”

Mainly regarding Owen-san’s matter.

“I’m sorry, about Ruby and me…”

Mariel-chan apologized with a remorseful expression, and I hurriedly corrected her.

“It’s not your fault, Mariel-san. It was enjoyable to return to the territory after a long time.”
“I’m also grateful because I had a meaningful time with the legendary blacksmith Mr. Galvano, so there’s no need to apologize.”

Sei seemed to be in a good mood, having promised that he could talk about weapons with Galvano Ojisama and spar with him if he felt like it.

“Yes, it was just the right time for me as well, since I wanted to meet Galvano Ojisama and others.”
“Well, that’s good if that’s the case, but…”

Mariel-chan sipped the black tea that the hardworking Miria had prepared right after returning, and she smiled wryly.

“Anyway, I’m looking forward to its completion.”

Ruby, who had silently emerged from the shadows, sat on Mariel-chan’s knees and nibbled on the carrot-flavored shortbread prototype provided by the Mayor Company.

“I never thought it would be modified to become my weapon though…”

Mariel-chan averted her eyes from us and let out a dry laugh.

“No, Miss Mariel, having a means of attack for emergencies is important.”

Sei gazed at Mariel-chan with a serious expression.

“That’s right. Now that you have become a Sacred Beast Contract Holder, it’s essential to have a means of defense.”

Sei and I can handle things ourselves, and indeed, with strong individuals like Kurogane and Byakko-sama, it’s not easy for anyone to mess with us. However, it’s not guaranteed that some troublemakers won’t try to pick on Mariel-chan, who looks like a timid and cute rabbit herself, on top of having a rabbit Sacred Beast, Ruby. Well, even though they act like a fujoshi and an Onee, deep down…

“Still, I’m not confident that I can use that thing on the spot.”

Mariel-chan hugged Ruby tightly.

“Oh dear, you’re just hopeless. Alright, once it’s complete, we’ll have special training! Everyone should join in!”
“Ehhh…!?”

As Ruby made her Spartan declaration, and Mariel-chan answered with a bewildered expression, Byakko-sama teleported in.
Oh, that’s right. While we were at Mayor Company, Byakko-sama had gone to the Bastea Company’s Capital branch.
After joining up with Sei, he used warp to return to the territory’s branch, saying they had some business at the main store to take care of.

“I’m back.”
“Welcome back. So, how was it?”
“Huh? Did something happen at the main store?”

As I hastily inquired about Sei’s words, Byakko-sama plopped down on the nearby couch, grabbed a piece of shortbread from the table, and popped it into his mouth.

“Mmm, weww, you seee, askhjqhw.”
“Stop with your poor manners and swallowing properly before you speak!”

When Sei warned him, Byakko-sama quickly drank the tea that Miria had brewed and poured it down her throat.

“Sorry. There’s no trouble happening, I just went to pick up a little something. Here, this is it.”

Byakko-sama said and took out a large wooden box from his Inventory.

“What is it?”
“It’s for you. What we had promised you before.”
“Huh? Me?”

Did I make a promise with Bastea Company?
As I couldn’t recall that I did, I approached the wooden box placed on the floor and opened its lid.

“T-this is…!”

It was the very thing I had been eagerly waiting for!
