After putting away the golems, the rabbits woke up after quite a while.
「Oh, you’re awake?」
「Wh-…….this place is….!?」
I called out to the most important looking one….by that I mean she was wearing a crown.
「I gonna need to talk to you for a bit ok?」
Then the moment she saw my face,
I received a reaction that I hadn’t seen for quite some time.
*Sssss* the unmistakable sound of peeing came from between her legs.
The other rabbits began to shiver in fear as well.
…….ahh, how nostalgic.
「H-hey what’s that look for!?」
Somehow, I had forgotten. There were people around me who were used to me…like dragons and strong people so I had completely forgotten.
I let my guard down and this is the result.
「It looks like…I should definitely remember to hold my magic back when I meet someone for the first time.」
If this happened whenever I met someone, I wouldn’t be able to stand it.
Let’s ask Hesty about learning this.
But not right now, now I need to,
「I want to talk to you, do you think you can manage?」
The leader looking bunny nodded while shaking.
It should be that. The leader-like one should be stronger.
「Why did you attack me with the monsters?」
「W-we didn’t come to attack you!……W-well, we did come to attack in a different sense of the world, but we didn’t intend to harm you! We could never do such a thing to a man with such high quality magic!」
「Wa-Yes! So please—leaving me aside, I beg of you! Please forgive the girls behind me!」
Her rabbit ears were standing straight up and she was desperately begging me. It seems like she wasn’t lying.
That being the case, it seems worthwhile to talk to them but,
The girls shook fearfully whenever I moved.
If it’s like this, then we won’t be able to calm down and speak.
「Man…calm down. I won’t kill you guys.」
The things that lived in the forest mostly had a life or death view on things…but I was different. I tried to calm them before restarting our talks.
「Nn…ok then. Tell me, why did you try to attack me in the different meaning of the word? The other meaning is that right? It’s sexually yeah?」
「Wa-yes. If we were to consume some of your lordship’s ‘vigor’ our starvation would disappear…or so I was thinking.」
These rabbits were starving? They have voluptuous bodies so I can’t see them as starving.
「It’s not for food. We are starving from ‘vigor’ and magic deprevation. We had been fine up until now. The men of Prussia came over and we had gone sometimes, but recently they have almost stopped coming….it has become insufficient.」
I see. So that’s how they all began to starve and approached my place which was nearby.
「More accurately, it was a nearby place with you who has strong and plentiful magic. If you have this much then even if we all absorbed it, it’d still be completely fine…….」
The rabbit leader looked at my body and said while blushing slightly.
Nothing will come out even if you stare at me like that.
「Anyways, Dianeia. Is this kind of thing prohibited in the capital?」
「I don’t think so? Even if the forest is dangerous, the adventurers usually go anyways…I wonder at the cause.」
After hearing Dianeia’s words, the rabbit leader pointed at her.
「The Merchant House at our town’s entrance was crushed by rocks falling from the sky. We lost the data for all our visitors….」
「Rocks falling from the sky?」
It’s been a while since I came here but….does it rain rocks here in this world?
Well…this is a world with magic in it, so maybe someone sent them flying.
「So, because your store was crushed, you couldn’t do business, and you ended up like this?」
「Yes……if we can’t move that huge rock, then we can’t put up another shop….」
「All the rabbits seemed downhearted.
「It’s a matter of life or death. If we can’t recover our customer’s data then we can’t resume our night business. Then we won’t have the land or funds to rebuild…..」
It seems like she’s halfway to tears.
Umu, I wonder what should be done?
The biggest reason they came here was their crushed shop.
Even if they took out a loan and built a new shop, people won’t visit if it isn’t more easily accessible.
「We’ve got just the right person here don’t we?」
I turned to look at Dianeia.
But she just tilted her head back at me.
It seems like she didn’t understand.
「You’re the ruler of Prussia right? Then you can let them use some of the town’s land and run a store there right?」
「Ahh……now that you say it, that’s right…!」
Did you really forget that until now?
「N-no, it’s just that when I meet you I’m usually in my Arch-mage mode…so I kinda forgot….that’s right, there’s some left over land in the town that you can use.」
The rabbits’ eyes started shining.
「That’s right. My town doesn’t have enough entertainment. I think an establishment that lets people vent would be perfect. It should also help with the adventurer’s being a bit too rambunctious…but…」
「Is there a problem?」
「Mm. It’s not a state-run business. I can’t finance this myself, they will need to obtain funding from somewhere, do you guys have any ideas?」
She said, and the rabbits all dropped their heads sadly.
Well, if they had something like that, they would’ve already been able to start rebuilding. But…hmm…that’s right.
「I could build the house and loan it out…」
「Daichi-dono would? Is that okay?」
「Well, as long as I use some of the trees in the forest it should be pretty easy.」
My payment would be…a bit of entertainment using the skills that I’d learned for fun.
The materials are all from the forest, so I stand to lose nothing.
What’s more, if I left these rabbits out in the cold, they might come attack again.
They’re not really a threat, but it’s an annoyance.
That’s why making them a shop once and letting them work in it, is easier. Also…I have a bit of interest in going as well.
「Alright then, I will lend you land and a shop. Can you do this?」
All of the rabbits nodded vigorously.
「W-we will never forget this favor for the rest of our lives! Thank you very much!」
She said and the rabbit women all rushed up to hug me.
They were really soft and fluffy.
Somehow, just by touching them…I got the feeling that, rabbits are great.
Un…I can understand how the adventurers got caught by this.
「n……somehow, it feels like there’s, black magic power, coming from the top floor, of your house.」
Hesty said…but I decided not to mind it.
—in the future.
The outskirts of Prussia would host a 「Bunny Bar」.
It was a place where many brawny men would frequent…but that is another story.
