The Nildea lord’s palace, where the “Yuri Empire” is currently based, is surrounded by the [Purification Barrier] developed by the children of the “Kobai”.
This has the effect of “automatically purifying the inside”, so as long as you are inside the lord’s palace surrounded by barriers, you will not be bothered by the stench that prevails in the city of Nildea.
Because it was very comfortable, Yuri would like to wrap the entire city of Nildea with a [purification barrier] if possible. Unfortunately, [Purification Barrier] is difficult to operate on a large scale because the cost of deployment and maintenance is high.
So, of course, if she had something to do and needed to leave the lord’s house, she should have been prepared for the stench.
―――― Until yesterday.
“Oh … it’s amazing, I don’t smell it at all.”
“I see, it’s nicely done.”
Yuri, who worked hard and finished her duties early in the morning, went out with Euro for the first time in a long time from the [Purification Barrier]. Realizing the high effect of magic, the two of them unintentionally let out a voice of admiration.
“I’m honored. I’m glad I managed to make it in time for Yuri-sama’s outing.”
A girl responds with a smile after receiving the words of the two.
From appearance that have sharp ears that can be identified as forest species (Elfair). but the small coverage of clothes like those worn by dancers, make her brown skin which is the greatest feature of branded species (Darhadda) greatly exposed. A girl with a figure that imitates the so-called “dark elf”, which is familiar to those who read manga and novels set in the fantasy world.
“Don’t be so humble. I couldn’t think of using the magic of [underwater breathing]. It’s wonderful from my point of view.”
“It’s a reward if Yuri-sama said so..”
The girl — Misari smiled with a fascinating smile.
She is the captain of “Blue Rose” and has an occupation (class) of <Spirit Master (Rishaluk)>. She is good at fascinating and using the spirits around her with her own charm and dancing skills. Of course, it is also excellent as a simple user of spirit magic, and this time Misari applied the spirit magic of [underwater breathing] using the power of the spirit of the air.
[Underwater breathing] is literally a magic that allows you and your allies to breathe underwater. Needless to say, it was originally a magic used to get into the water, but apparently this magic allows breathing by simply “keeping the subject’s nasal cavity and mouth covered with fresh air.”.
In other words, it’s possible to use the magic of [underwater breathing] on the ground in this way. Since you only breathe in the fresh air produced by magic, you don’t have to breathe in the surrounding air, that is, you don’t have to worry about bad odors.
It’s surprising that Misari discovered this usage only about an hour ago.
Today, Misari knew that Yuri had something to do with local people, but it seems that it was the result of trial and error as to whether there was any way to reduce the stench. Yuri felt that she was reminded of the depth of love of Misari who had taken care of herself so much.
“I expanded the magic for 8 hours so that it would be effective, so please do not stay until late at night and return to the lord’s house as soon as the sun goes down at the latest.”
“Okay, thank you Misari”
“If you’re free, don’t Misari-neeyan come too? I think you’ll be welcomed by the large number of people from the” tasting party “.”
“Well, I’m interested, but let’s decline this time. Even now, “Nadeshiko” and the servants they summoned are working with the local people, so I want to cast the magic of [underwater breathing] on them as well.”
It is already well known to the public that two-color maids wearing black and blue costumes are currently working in the city of Nildea.
The maid wearing a black dress under the apron dress is a child belonging to “Nashiko”, and the one wearing a blue dress is a child of a “servant” summoned by Nadeshiko.
In “Atros Online”, only characters who have reached level 180 or higher can give orders, and can acquire the skill of “summoning a servant”.
The acquisition of this skill is not limited to any profession, and it does not matter whether it is a player or not. Therefore, all the members of the “Yuri Empire”, all of whom are level 200, naturally acquired this skill, including Yuri.
<Summon servant> allows you to freely decide the race, occupation, and number of “servants” that can be summoned when acquiring skills. You can select a minimum of 1 person and a maximum of 5 people.
Of course, it is convenient to have a large number of followers that can be summoned, but if you increase the number of followers that can be summoned, the level of followers will decrease.
If there is only one person, you can summon a “level 190” servant, so it is quite strong and can be expected as a sufficient force. On the other hand, in the case of 5 people, it drops to “level 150”, so naturally the strength of the servant is significantly lower than that of the summoned person.
Which one to choose, quality or quantity, is essential when acquiring the <Summon Servant> skill.
By the way, Nadeshiko has set the maximum number of followers, and can summon 5 blue one-piece maids who have the same occupation of <God Warrior (Tetra)> as them. Because the main part of Nadeshiko is not a battle, the level is not so important for them. It is more important to be able to work more efficiently with the power of the number of people.
Currently, in the city of Nildea, the children of the maid servants summoned by Nadeshiko are working in various places such as managing the east and west gates, guarding the town, and guarding the lord’s building.
“Well, the children of the servants will also have a hard time. Please thank them in my place.”
The servant has absolute loyalty to the person who summoned them. In other words, for the servant, the summoned Nadeshiko is the “master” and Yuri is the “master of the master”, which is a somewhat roundabout relationship. At least not a direct loyal partner.
However, on the contrary, the servant summoned by Nadeshiko was like a “grandchild” to Yuri. There is no doubt that a servant who does their best for her loved one is a dear existence for Yuri. The current situation where the children of the servants are working with a bad smell is heartbreaking. It may be difficult to use the magic of [underwater breathing], but Yuri would like to pay attention to the blue roses so that the children of the servants can spend their time comfortably.
“Of course. Please leave that role to us.”
“Please. Please tell the children of the blue roses as my own wish.”
“Give such attention to the indirect servants — I understand, I promise that all the blue roses will do their best.”
In response to Yuri’s words, Misari bowed deeply again.
Because Yuri couldn’t see it with my head down, she couldn’t tell the fact that Misari had a strong expression of admiration.
There is a square in the center of the city of Nildea.
The murky open space where no tree was planted is just an open space, and honestly, it is a useless space that is not often used by citizens. Because this square is just a stone’s throw from the lord’s building, which is also near the center of the city, they were supposed to hold a “tasting party” at this place today.
When you look at the square, you can see many familiar food stalls there.
There is no doubt that it is the appearance of the “Street food stall kit” that she has seen many times in “Atros Online”. It seemed quite spectacular to see what she was used to seeing in the game lined up in a row mixed with the scenery of another world.
An old man who was the first to find Yuri rushed to her immediately. Yuri stopped the old man who tried to kneel immediately in a hurry.
“Hello, Ados. I would like to express my sincere gratitude for taking on the support project for the widow on our behalf.”
“I’m honored. I can’t stand my gratitude to Her Majesty for stopping the aging of me and my wife.”
“— It looks like you’re a little younger right away. I almost mistaken that good leg.”
Yuri tells me with a small laugh.
Of course, that word refers to Ados, who quickly rushed to Yuri. In response to Yuri’s words, Ados laughed a little embarrassed.
“I’m afraid. Once I lose it and then regain it, I can’t help but feel how good a young and free-moving body is.”
“It’s a good thing that you have a lot of energy. By the way, I understand you well, but how is your wife doing?”
“My wife, like me, has only drank one bottle yet, but a few days ago she was feeling fine. Even just two years younger has a huge effect.”
Ados seemed to be deeply impressed, and while saying so, he nodded frequently and many times. On the other hand, in contrast, Yuri felt really sorry for the words.
“Ados, I have to apologize to you.”
Telling that, Yuri bows deeply to Ados.
The Empress bowed her head for herself — as soon as she saw it, Ados was strongly upset.
“Oh, please stop, Your Majesty! There is nothing that your Majesty apologizes for!”
“No, I need to apologize. I gave that Ochimizu to Ados as a medicine to rejuvenate only for one year.”
It has already been reported by Ados that his age was rejuvenated by “2 years old” and his wife’s age was rejuvenated by “3 years old” by taking the ochimizu.
If you think about it, there are only “160 days” in a year in this world. Perhaps it is quite imaginable that weird water, which has the effect of rejuvenating drinkers by “365 days”, will rejuvenate the ages of people living in this world by two to three years.
Yuri’s mouth did not explain that ochimizu was a “medicine that rejuvenates only one year old”. Whether it’s Ados or Rubetta, they just looked at the effects of the [appraisal> skills they had by their own [merchant] vocation.
Even so, as long as I didn’t explain that there was a discrepancy between what I could see in the <Appraisal> and the actual effect when transferring it, Yuri felt sorry for that.
“No, Your Majesty. From my point of view, it is only a welcome situation that the medicine I received is more than twice as effective. Even if I share the medicine with my wife, until a very young age. Because we can return our bodies together. ”
“I’m sorry, Ados. It would be great if you could say that.”
“Rather than that, please enjoy the ‘tasting party’ today. Although the time was limited, I was able to prepare as much as I could with everyone who gathered.”
“Yes, I’m looking forward to it. I’ll tell you, I’ll eat a lot, right?”
“I have received a lot of materials from Her Majesty, so don’t hesitate.
— By the way, Your Majesty. I would like to ask everyone to speak to us soon. ”
When Ados told her so, he urged Yuri to look around.
If you look around the area according to the words. It turned out that the eyes of quite a few people were already gathering toward Yuri.
“Oh, oh? Why is everyone watching so much?”
“Everyone knows your Majesty because I’ve seen it in telepathy.”
“Oh … I see, that’s right, if you ask me.”
At the time of the last telepathy sent to the citizens of Nildea, not only the conversation but also the “video” showing Yuri herself was delivered together.
Therefore, the appearance of Yuri is already known to the citizens of Nildea. If there is a girl who can be clearly identified as the landlord, it makes sense to look at her.
