uth at all.
Her appearance was like that of a hero on horseback galloping on the battlefield against a myriad of armies.
”… Oi, kid ”
”Chief, please put in the next grass. Quickly, this instant, as soon as possible. ”
The chief and Nozomu shrunk at the edge of such a battlefield.
Nozomu sent a message with his eyes to the chief, saying ”Please do something about it! ”
With his gaze, the chief replied with an irresponsible answer, saying ”My wife is scary, so just do it yourself! ”
He is such a pitiful man.
However, it cant be helped either. The housewives who were talking about rumors were just like demon beasts rivaling that of dragons.
Once he was disobedient to his wife, finally his wallet was detained so that he completely depended on his wife. He was sentenced to no allowance for a while.
For every working husband, it was equivalent to cutting off their supply lines in a fierce battlefield.
The mighty demon beasts didnt notice the ants hanging around their feet.
In some cases, demon beasts accidentally crushed the ants…
While trying not to pay attention to that noise as much as possible. Nozomu innocently continued to grind the grass, and the chief kept throwing grass into the mortar.
In the end, he sent his gaze over them, he could see that they were doing as they please with Irisdina.
While earnestly wishing that the tip of their spear would not turn to him, Nozomu erased his presence and continued to stir the mortar.
On such a broad day inside the city, he erased his presence more than he was in the forest.
The job is done. After Nozomu and Irisdina received confirmation of the cleared request, they came to the central park. All he had to do now was send this confirmation to the guild and his request would be completed.
”Thank you Nozomu, I learned a lot today. ”
”I-is that so… ”
The appearance of Irisdina, who brilliantly handled the flocking housewives returned to Nozomus mind.
What on earth did she learn…
”Even so, is it okay for me to get something like this? ”
Nozomu tried not to think the things that came back to his mind, and looked at the bag in his hands.
Nozomu was carrying a bag in his arms. Inside it was a cloth dyed with coloring dye. It was a piece of cloth that cannot be used at the tailor.

”What would you use it for? ”
”I will get a reasonable price even if I sell it to a second-hand clothing store. I think it is possible to repair clothes with it. And there are many other uses. ”
Not to mention repairing damaged clothes, even repairing armor also used cloth and strings to connect metal plates.
In fact, needles, strings and threads to tie, a knife to cut, and cloth were necessities for life in the forest.
All of them were indispensable tools.
Even Nozomu sometimes used threads as warning lines.
”I see … Nozomu sure is amazing. You can do various things by yourself. You can even enter that forest alone. ”
”Is that so? But I cant use magic like Irisdina, and also… ”
Her figure going straight ahead and walking on her own path. To be honest, Irisdina looked dazzling to Nozomu. He understood that it was something he didnt have at the moment. Silence flowed between them for a while.
”Is there something wrong? ”
The two were silent, but suddenly Irisdina made a gasping voice.
When Nozomu asked what happened, Irisdina offered her hands. Her both hands were swollen red.
”Somehow … my hands are itchy … ”
”Its swollen … Ah~, maybe the juice got on your hand when you plucked the grass leaves. ”
According to Nozomu, the grass juice can be used as a dye, but it seemed to cause a rash on the skin. Its okay if some time has passed, but it seemed that freshly extracted juice wasnt very good for the skin.
The housewives who were used to it might be able to prevent the juice from getting into their hands, Irisdina wouldnt be able to do her job like housewives up to that point.
”The juice makes your skin swell quickly, but it will also subside quickly. I think that the swelling will soon disappear if you leave it for a while. If you are still worried, just apply the ointment sold at the tool store, and right away it will be… hmm? What is this? ”
While explaining things to Irisdina, Nozomus hand, which was holding a bag, touched something hard.
Nozomu tried to take something from the bag, a small bottle came out. There is a milky white jelly-like substance inside of it.
”… This is an ointment ”
What Nozomu got was an ointment that was effective for treating the swelling of Irisdinas hands.
Probably the one who put it in was the old lady. She knew Irisdina didnt know about juice that could cause swelling, so she kept it in the bag as a thank you. Its a smart measure.
”Iris. I think applying this will reduce swelling. ”
Nozomu presented a bottle of ointment, but for some reason, Irisdina didnt take the bottle.
As Nozomu tilted his head, wondering what she was thinking, Irisdina stretched out her red and swollen hand.
”Nozomu, Im sorry, but can you apply the ointment to my hands? ”
Actually, Irisdinas hands were so itchy that she couldnt touch anything. She asked Nozomu to help her and apply the ointment, but a question was dancing inside Nozomus head.
Wondering what she was saying, Nozomu felt the heat in his head rising all at once.
Nozomu wondered if it was really alright, but Irisdina looked the same as usual, and she extended her hand and asks her to hurry up.
”… My hands are so itchy that I couldnt touch anything. Nozomu, Im sorry, but I need your help. ”
”I-I understand … ”
Nozomu finally understood the situation and looked at her outstretched hand.
Irisdinas skin, which was normally as white as snow, was now a little red like it was burning.
Opening the bottle cap and taking out the ointment, Nozomu gently applied the ointment to Irisdinas hand.
”! Are you okay? ”
”Ah, its alright. It was a little cold so I accidentally let out a voice. ”
Irisdinas strangely charming voice made Nozomu nervous, but
Nozomu continued to apply the ointment.
The surrounding gazes were fixed on Nozomu and Irisdina. The current Nozomu, who was touching a womans hand, could be seen from the side as lovers in heat.
Nozomus face immediately turned red when he realized his situation. He tried to ignore the eyes around him and concentrated on Irisdinas hands applying the ointment.
However, when he focused his mind on Irisdinas hand, he could feel her hand more clearly.
Her hands were so soft that he couldnt think of her as someone who practiced martial arts. Maybe her body temperature was lower than Nozomus, a cold sensation spread across Nozomus hands, and Nozomus body heated up even more.
On the other hand, Irisdina was very calm. She is the exact opposite of Nozomu. Either because she was used to being the center of attention, or because she was the daughter of a famous family and was usually taken care of by the maids.
After it was done, Irisdina felt relieved and exhaled. But Nozomu sighed as if he was tired.
”Umm, mom. The two of them are very close! Are they lovers!? ”
”Thats right. I wonder if theyre lovers. ”
The voice of a parent and child that seemed to come to the park reached Nozomus ears.
Nozomus face seemed to turn red due to that word.
However, that word dug up Nozomus past. His memories about his best friends betrayal and his lovers appearance leaving him behind were passing through his mind, and his burning face diminished at once.
”Fufu, lovers ?… such a cute girl. ”
”Yes … . ”
Irisdina talked to Nozomu while waving her hand to the parent and child.
She was calm and doesnt look unusual.
Nozomu intended to answer with his usual voice, but he had a slightly choked voice instead.
”… Lets go. ”
Due to his strange behavior, Irisdina called out to Nozomu, but Nozomu began walking toward the guild and blocking her words.
Nozomu quickened his legs as an emotion similar to the wicked impulse rose within his chest.
However, Irisdinas words could be heard from behind.
”Nozomu. Thank you for hanging out with me today. If you dont mind, would you please continue to do this kind of work together with me? I want to learn more. ”
The words he heard were gratitude for today and a request that to continue working together.
Her words slightly contained the wicked impulse that arose inside his chest. The momentum of the black vortex in the depths of his chest subsided and became slightly warmer. Nozomus heartbeat was beating slowly, sending a warm heat throughout his body.
”…Well, Ill go with you when the circumstances allow. ”
While looking back, Nozomu smiled at Irisdina.
His facial expression that had become stiff had returned to its original state before he knew it.
”… When the circumstances allow, right? ”
Irisdina pondered Nozomus words as she returned to her house.
”But today sure was amazing. I wonder if it was a natural thing for every housewife … ”
Irisdina was a prestigious aristocrat from the country of Foskia, no matter how much she interacted with ordinary people at school, she is inevitably ignorant of worldly circumstances due to her birth.
Thinking she couldnt stay like that forever, thats why she tried to help Nozomu with his job, and today she experienced a series of new things.
To be honest, she wanted to learn more and try another job, but it couldnt be helped. She promises him to continue doing his work together in the future.
She looked at the palm of her hands.
Perhaps the ointment that Nozomu had applied had worked, the swelling had subsided.
When the housewives were asking her questions in the tailor.
When they started asking about him.
When she had him smeared ointment on her swelled hands.
A heat that she couldnt even understand was swirling in the depth of Irisdinas chest. Somehow She felt hotter than when she first dated Nozomu.
It was especially noticeable when Nozomu was applying the ointment to her hands.
She seemed calm and composed, but she was only accustomed to fake her facial expressions due to her past social gatherings experiences.
Her swollen hand felt warm.
Her chest was filled with feelings that surpassed interest towards Nozomu. She wanted to know more about him, at the same time, she also wanted to know about his ex-girlfriend…
Irisdina walked down the road to her mansion, gently touching her chest as heat swirled inside.
