Chapter 257: A Mysterious Pet
I pick up Nonna as she lets out a cute scream and throw her on the bed.
The thrown Nonna grabs the sheets and curls up embarrassingly.
「I’m next then. Hya!」
I lift up the naked Carla, who extends her hands towards me, and throw her on the same bed.
After that, the other girls stretch out their hands, wanting me to do the same thing to them.
「You want to be thrown so badly?」
As I carry Mel, she wraps her arms around my neck.
「Of course. I want Aegir-san to pick me up and throw me on the bed. I’ve at least prepared myself for that much.」
My hand circles around Mel’s back and legs, then I approach the bed and toss her on there as well.
And then I see something glimmer on Mel’s thigh.
All of them have become full-blown lewd women.
「Do it to me too!」
The one who stepped forward was Claudia.
I unconsciously let out a grunt of effort.
Her entire body is practically round as I put my arms under the back of the smiling woman and what I can barely recognize as her legs, then lift her up.
Plus she’s also hard to lift up so I’m having trouble picking her up.
Refocusing my energy, I once again try to lift her up with all my might.
「Aah! How lovely, to have my beloved throw me onto the bed like this!!」
I’m happy she’s pleased, but she should get slimmer.
It would probably be better for her health too.
「Please wait! If you throw her, the bed will collapse!」
「That’s right. This special bed was just bought today, please just throw that meatball out the window.」
Nonna and Mel stop me.
The room where the girls and I will make love in later is no my own bedroom.
This place is a special room connected only to my room with not much furniture besides a bed in the center of the room.
This bed is especially large, a special bed out of special beds, which was unable to fit through the window and had to be built from parts by the craftsman inside the room.
This giant bed can easily fit 20 people and has reinforced legs and frame so can supposedly support plenty of weight.
「Even so, such a meatball was not included in the calculations.」
「Who are you calling a pigball!?」
Claudia snaps back at Mel’s remark.
Don’t flail around, I’m already having trouble carrying you as it is.
As soon as I pacify the situation, I gently place Claudia on the bed.
I hear a creak when I do so, but I think the bed will be fine as long as I don’t throw her.
「This bed is nice, isn’t it? Before, the women who finished would have to move to the adjacent bed.」
「Everyone had to fight for a spot to sleep together until morning.」
Up until now, it was inevitable that some girls would be left out of the bed after the orgy.
The girls who lost consciousness would be moved over to the two or three beds placed side by side each other.
「That frustration when you open your eyes in the morning only to find yourself in a different bed or on the floor……」
「Not only that, you see other girls happily sleeping on Aegir’s chest.」
For a while now, the girls’ gazes have been fixed on Celia, who was clinging to my back.
「Now that I think about it, Celia-san can always be found in Aegir-san’s arms.」
「I was supposed to be sleeping on Aegir-san, but the next thing I know I’m on the floor.」
「I don’t know what you’re talking about.」
Celia turns her face away to feign innocence, but everyone knows she moves them around after all of them fall asleep.
She’s cute though, so I won’t say anything.
「More importantly, let me embrace you already? It’s been so long since I’ve done so. Stop arguing with each other.」
I stick my erect dick in between the girls disputing with Celia.
All of a sudden, everybody’s expression loosens up and they all start extending their tongues.
This is peace due to my penis.
「You’re big as usual. What’s with this length, here’s what you’ll get.」
「The popping veins are so fiendish. This can only be considered a lady-killing tool.」
Carla and Nonna open their mouth from both sides and drag their tongues back and forth along my rod.
「I-it’s so thick.」
「Aha, want to lick it together sis?」
Mel pushes the back of Kuu and Ruu, who crawl under me and suck on my balls and the base of my dick.
「It’s so hard. Hamo.」
「Yes, the tip’s so engorged too.」
Leah and Celia attack the head of my dick.
Leah takes the tip in her mouth while Celia traces the edges of the glans with her tongue.
With six people servicing me at the same time, my dick angles upward more and more in delight.
「The six of us could only put our mouths on it at the same time because Aegir-san’s so huge. The limit for an average man is two.」
Mel and Mireille hug my back, rubbing their breasts from my back to my thighs.
There’s no way I won’t get my hardest now that they’ve gone this far.
My dick is as hard as it can get and stuck to my stomach.
Seeing that, Rita interrupts everyone’s service and puts something like a pointer on the tip of my dick.
After a moment of silence, she lets out a surprised and hopeful gasp while looking at the measurement.
「As I thought! Everyone, look at this. It’s gotten bigger again.」
Everyone gasped in amazement.
「Eeeh!? It’s gotten that big? I was wondering about it a little myself……」
Nonna puts a hand to her mouth in surprise.
「Aegir’s going to be 24 this year because Nonna decided his age on a whim. Isn’t he actually older than that? No 24 year old would grow so much like this.」
Carla is shocked too.
「Don’t you think it’s gotten darker than before he set out? How much lewd juices did it get burned by?」
Mel pokes my dick, calling it a bad child.
「That reminds me, where is that elf girl? You fucked her on the way back, didn’t you?」
Carla says it like a predetermined thing.
No, no, I haven’t even kissed Natia yet.
The most I’ve done is petting and biting her ear.
For now, I had her wait in the guest room.
Excluding Claudia, she is guest number one in the new mansion.
I eventually intend to make her one of my lovers once I’ve captured her body and heart.
I brought that curious Natia along to this room.
However when we started to take off our clothes and she started to realize what was about to happen, she turned red and jumped out the window into the courtyard.
I was worried because this was the second floor, but to an elf who regularly jumps from tree to tree, this height is nothing to her.
「But she’ll encounter Lammy if she runs that way.」
Neither is militant so I’m sure they’ll be fine.
「Alright, it’s about time we get started.」
However someone objected before that could happen.
「I want it……」
The ones who voiced their objections were Catherine and the other pregnant girls.
As expected, I can’t throw them so I kiss the girls and have them watch for now.
「Pregnant women get horny too!」
That’s true, they’re still my women while they’re pregnant, and I can pleasure them even without penetration.
「You girls get on the bed and spread your legs. I’ll lick all of you.」
The girls cheer and climb on the bed.
「Then, I’ll be taking Aegir-sama’s crotch.」
「Then I’ll push my breasts against his back.」
「I’ll cling to his chest!」
「Meat, roll aside!」
This is the start of a fun time.
The Next Day.
「Because of the production increase in Lintbloom, more and more swords and armor are arriving. The soldiers who lost their equipment are slowly but surely regaining their military strength.」
I look out the office of the new mansion while partially listening to Leopolt.
For now, our military strength is recovering.
「We would have recovered our strength sooner if we purchased arms from another vendor, but we don’t have any immediate threats to us for the time being so there is no need to hurry. The manufactured goods from Lintbloom have sufficiently replenished our equipment. Plus it didn’t cost us extra.」
Celia, who remained stuck to my back since yesterday, speaks up.
When Leopolt stares at her, she shyly buries her face in my back.
「I understand. And regarding the preparations for the accompanying soldiers to the capital-」「It’s completed.」「…………」
He anticipated what I wanted to ask and answered before I could finish.
Leopolt really isn’t cute at all.
It was the same when I returned, the only thing he said was, “oh is that so”.
But I suddenly left the territory so I might have put a burden on him.
It was careless of me to leave like that.
「Was there a problem? I didn’t say anything to you before leaving after all.」
Leopolt states with a straight face.
「Not really anything in particular. Rather, I don’t know which military affair would be impeded by the absence of the margrave.」
Bastard, he’s saying that I’m not needed?
If the feudal lord isn’t here…….
I think about it for a minute.
Normally, the one who oversees the military as a whole and comes up with the plans is Leopolt, while the one who supervises the training and maintains order is Myla.
The one who stamps my seal of approval is Celia since I don’t even know where it is without asking her.
Shit, so I’m really not needed?
「I-I won’t be able to calm down if you aren’t here. If Aegir-sama isn’t here, this world would be like hell!」
「Celia, you’re so cute, unlike that steel mask over there.」
I hug Celia tightly.
「Putting the farce aside, an amount of soldiers which will not embarrass Lord Hardlett centered around the escort squad will be prepared. A grand exercise doesn’t seem likely this year so it should be enough. I will accompany you so please inform me when you are ready to depart.」
After that, Leopolt turns his back to me.
Some day, I’ll make him say he can’t live without me.
No, actually nevermind, that would be disgusting.
「Aau~ don’t mess up my hair. Aaah, you tied it up!」
Leopolt exits the room and right before I was going to fool around with Celia, Adolph appears.
「Are you going to tell me I’m not needed as well?」
「What are you talking about all of a sudden? Of course not, you’re needed. I have many things I need you for.」
Crap, I stirred up unnecessary trouble.
Adolph takes out a stack of documents and drops them onto the larger office desk.
I pass them off to Celia, but Adolph brings them back in front of me.
What is he doing?
「If Celia-san had a good idea, I would have dealt with it already.」
「Don’t mind me and just do what you want.」
「Aegir-sama, what you’re saying now is different than what you said before.」
Adolph clears his throat once before starting to explain.
「The threat from the conflict between the southern nations has disappeared in our perspective but a harmful effect has resulted.」
「Harmful effect? Like the ash flying over to us?」
「No, an out of season north wind following the disaster has kept most of the volcanic ash out of our territory and Malt. The problem is that the north wind blew it all over Vandolea’s farmland.」
Heeh, how unlucky for them.
「I didn’t think they would send their citizens over to us since we were in a state of battle with them earlier…… however it seems the area near their capital is running out of food and housing to support the refugees. It is only a little right now but there are citizens who have begun to migrate over to our territory.」
Fumu, people will do anything in order to survive after all.
「There are really lots of people who are running with just the clothes on their back, so if they steal from the nearby villages out of poverty, there is a chance that things will get heated quickly. It’s important that we don’t let them do anything strange.」
It would be unbearable if the stability we worked so hard to attain deteriorated.
「I understand. I will tell Leopolt and Myla as well, so move the soldiers a little bit to the south. If we show our soldiers to them, they won’t act rashly.」
「Yes, but that may still not be enough. If they run out of food, I doubt they will act based on logic.」
That’s true, if they don’t have food, they might pick a fight with the soldiers.
「What do you think we should do?」
Adolph can think of a plan several times better than me, so I’ll leave it to him, more importantly it’s easier to do so.
「Let’s go with the plan of taking a certain amount of immigrants and creating a pioneer village just like we did with the Treia immigrants from before. Fortunately, we still have open space. We’ll temporarily provide them with food supplies and later add onto the tax to make up the difference.」
Fumu fumu, I see.
「While we’re at it, why not throw Bejček and the others in there as well?」
Those guys who were cut off from their home country Vandolea are currently working hard in the fields in my territory.
They are still former enemy soldiers so our own guards are stationed to keep watch, but it doesn’t look like they will try to cause problems after being abandoned by their country.
I thought it was a good idea but Adolph and Celia shake their heads.
「Refugees are people who abandon their motherland, you know? If you throw them in with former soldiers, you will get fugitives.」
「To Bejček and the others, they’re people of the country that abandoned them. I don’t think they will have a harmonious relationship.」
Adolph aside, even Celia disapproves.
Because I’m sad, I’ll squeeze her cheeks.
As I fiddle with the flexible Celia, I tell Adolph.
「Then do as you wish.」
Adolph replies with, “Understood” before standing up from his seat.
Then he stops as if just remembering something.
「If I were to do as I want, those within the territory have a duty to pay spring tax too……」
I smile bitterly and spread my hands.
How can he expect tax to be taken from refugees who escaped here with nothing?
If I wanted milk, I would go to Nonna and not Maria.
Not only will I not get much, it would make her angry.
「I understand. At least let me get Hardlett-sama’s approval or else Myla-san won’t be quiet.」
Myla doesn’t have such flexibility after all.
I can imagine her doing whatever she can to extract the amount from them if we require them to pay.
「Oh yeah, one more thing.」
「What is it?」
Adolph looks slightly displeased.
He must think I’ve thought of something ridiculous again.
It’s nothing of the sort, it’s important.
「We might be providing them with food but they’re starting on land with absolutely nothing. They won’t have an easy life.」
「That is so, what of it……?」
He’s clearly making a wary face.
「I can’t bring myself to seeing women struggle. If you see a chance, build houses for them near Rafen.」
Adolph’s shoulders drop as if he knew what I was going to say.
We have to treat the women kindly.
If we do, several of them are bound to fall in love with me.
I can then enjoy a bunch of new women.
Sensing the unsettling feeling, Celia tries to get up but when I squeeze her cheeks more, she becomes limp again.
「What do you think? Do you understand?」
「……yes, I will prioritize the weak children and young women for housing near Rafen.」
The children are an afterthought.
It’s important that he understands the girls come first.
「Right now, it is pretty small scale, but if the disorder continues in Vandolea…… the situation may worsen.」
We’ll deal with it when the time comes.
I’m leaving everything to you so do a good job.
I rest the relaxed Celia on my lap and then kiss the nape of her neck.
Adolph lets out a sigh and walks out of the office.
Well, he’ll figure something out.
In the end, things got quite rowdy while I was touching Celia, but that takes care of one thing.
I send off the unsteady Celia back to her room and see Pipi dragging her feet in the hallway.
She doesn’t seem too happy.
「What’s wrong Pipi? What are you depressed about?」
She normally greets me with a big smile and jumps into my chest as soon as she sees me, but she’s looking sadly at the ground.
「Chief…… the egg was eaten.」
I have to look back through my memories to remember this egg she’s referring to.
Oh right, Pipi brought back a huge egg from Lintbloom.
It was left down in the basement if I remember correctly, but I completely forgot about it.
Despite the cold of the winter, it might have gone bad.
「I said something unnecessary. Sorry, I’ll buy you more new eggs later so forget about the rotten one.」
When I pat Pipi’s head, she shakes her head.
「It didn’t go bad. But it’s been eaten already.」
When I was about to wonder what she was talking about, I hear a strange cry and the sound of footsteps.
「Uuu…… I was about to eat it but something strange came back.」
Something appeared further down the corridor chasing after Pipi’s feet.
「What is that?」
「It was a lizard’s egg.」
That lizard was the size of a wolf and its body was covered in red scales.
It was running on all fours and would stand up on its hind legs when Pipi came close, stretching out its forelegs and wanting to be spoiled.
When standing, it was about the same height as Pipi.
It’s a pretty big lizard.
「Pipi also remembered that egg from earlier and went to the basement to check. That was when I saw the lizard come out from the cracked egg. It looked hard and inedible.」
I crouch down and tap its back with my sword.
Unlike a normal lizard with soft scales, it was like hitting a steel plate.
This thing certainly doesn’t seem edible.
「Anyways, it’s quite the large lizard. Did it just hatch?」
Perhaps angry from getting hit, the lizard turns around and hisses at me.
I’ve never heard the sounds lizards make, though this thing sounds familiar somehow.
And for a lizard, it has some impressive fangs growing out of its mouth.
Now that I look carefully, there are also sharp claws growing out of its limbs.
I give the cheeky creature a flick on the forehead and then something spreads open from behind its body.
When I take a look, I see that they’re wings.
「What a strange lizard, it even has wings.」
「Pipi is also seeing this kind of lizard for the first time.」
The world is a big place, such strange creatures also exist.
「What should we do? It’s attached to Pipi.」
Pipi asks while stroking its head.
When I see how happy the lizard looks as it’s getting petted, I feel it would be too cruel to throw it out or kill it.
We have a big yard so it’s not like we can’t keep it.
「What do you want to do, Pipi?」
Pipi answers while looking at the lizard’s stomach after it rolled onto its back.
「I want to keep it. It’s fast so it could be useful when hunting. If it’s useless, I can get it fat and then eat it.」
Alright, let’s go with that.
「It has sharp claws and fangs so properly train it so none of the family members get bitten.」
Can a lizard even be trained?
I guess we’ll find out.
Right after I cleaned up that mess, I realize something else is causing a fuss at the entrance.
Alright, what’s next?
I head over and see the maids have stopped working and are surrounding something.
In the center, it’s ……Leticia and Sharon.
When they see me, Sharon blushes and smiles while Leticia bows her head deeply.
Now that I look, Leticia is hugging a puppy against her chest.
I’m more interested in those breasts pressing against the dog lewdly than the little puppy, but I’m sure the girls will have a better impression of me if I comment on how cute the puppy is.
「Heeh…… a puppy, eh?」
Crap, I left the cute part out.
It wasn’t inadvertent, rather I could tell the puppy was ugly just from first glance.
I don’t know if it was just recently born but it seems to be moving awkwardly even though its eyes are open.
Its fur has splotches of black and brown scattered all over its body and there is a white line in the middle of its face.
It has a face of someone feigning ignorance and I can’t feel any spirit from its drooping eyes or ears.
When it opens its mouth to yawn, I get a strong lazy feeling from the dog.
「Tristan, what are you doing?」
Not good, I accidentally called the dog the same name.
Leticia lowers the dog to the ground after getting my permission.
She was worried that the puppy would mess up the new mansion, but the dog curled up in the corner and fell asleep as soon as it was let down.
「So, what are you going to do with that dopey dog?」
「Actually it was abandoned in front of our shop this morning. I thought it would be rolled over by some carriage so I just picked it up for now.」
Leticia’s shop is in the best district in Rafen and pretty much in the center of the city.
There are plenty of people and carriages going back and forth on the roads so an unsteady dog would quickly be stepped on and crushed.
「I contacted my acquaintances but not only does it not have a cute face, it doesn’t seem capable of doing anything, so they all refused.」
It certainly doesn’t seem cute for people wanting to keep a pet, and it doesn’t seem capable of being a guard dog.
It’s a useless dog no matter how you look at it.
Besides, it’s snoring away in a place with so many unfamiliar people, what a carefree thing.
「We run a restaurant so keeping a pet is unsanitary.」
This is the kind Leticia we’re talking about.
She can’t just abandon the dog once she’s picked it up and has now brought the puppy to me not knowing what to do.
「As I thought, we were being rude! We shouldn’t have come to Hardlett-sama about something like a dog!」
Sharon blames her sister.
Hey, come on, don’t fight amongst yourselves.
Siblings have to get along.
「Ah! My ass…… it’s going to get it up.」
When I rub Sharon’s ass, she blushes and becomes docile.
I don’t know why she’s leaning forward, but whatever.
「Alright. I can take care of one dog I guess.」
「You mean it!? Thank you very much!」
Leticia happily thanks me, while Sharon’s hips give out and collapses to the ground.
We can just leave the dog to do its thing on the premises.
If I can see Leticia’s smile, that’s an easy price to pay.
She still had preparations to make back in her shop so she went back smiling after thanking me countless times
To pay me back, they said I could do some extremely embarrassing play with the two of them later.
Even with Leticia gone, the dog didn’t seem concerned at all, only looking around briefly before laying on its back and snoring again.
It has quite the courage.
「You’re going to keep the dog?」
Pipi who overheard, brought the lizard with her.
The maids who gathered around the dog screamed and backed away.
As expected, girls aren’t good at dealing with lizards or snakes.
「What is that!?」
「It’s going to eat us!」
「T-that’s definitely a lizard……」
Hahaha, I like cowardly girls too.
「Oh yeah, why not look after this dog while you’re at it?」
Pipi was also the one who looked after dogs when she was with the mountain nation so she might be the perfect person for this.
She picks up the puppy and then looks dubiously at it.
The dog barely opens its eyes and then remains dangling.
「It looks dumb.」
Even so, Pipi hugs it almost like she’s taken a liking to it.
The dog seems to have this troubled face while sleeping.
The lizard is crying behind her.
Could it be completely jealous right now.
「Got it. Pipi will raise this puppy into a fine dog.」
The dog yawns mockingly.
「Seems like a long way, but keep at it Pipi.」
Pipi plops the dog on top of the lizard.
The lizard seems unhappy but obediently lets the dog ride after Pipi gets upset.
「What should we do about the names? I’m fine with calling them dog and lizard.」
Pipi seems fine with that though that makes it hard to refer to them.
Why not pick a random name?
I’ll think of something too.
「Let’s name the dog Tristan…… and as for the lizard-」
「We already have a Tristan. It’s hard to tell the two apart when the both have the same face and the same name.」
Pipi got upset.
I thought Tristan was a good name though.
Pipi, for once, folds her arms and thinks.
Then she puts her hands together when she thinks of something.
She picks up the puppy who was resting its chin on the lizard’s head and sleeping.
「You will be Messerschmitt!」
That name doesn’t match its face, but whatever.
Then she puts her hands around the lizard’s face.
「You’ll be Pochi!」
The lizard, now called Pochi, gets hugged by Pipi and cries out happily.
The dog, now called Messerschmitt, couldn’t wait for it to be over and goes back to sleep.
If that’s what Pipi wants, I’m fine with it.
「Cheer up, Pochi.」
When I pet the puppy’s head, the lizard butts its head in.
I guess it’s trying to assert that I’m using its name.
I got it wrong already.
The names would fit better if they were switched.
In any case, does Pochi understand words?
It seems like a fairly smart lizard.
Now that we decided on the new pets’ names, I was about to go eat, but then Rita rushes in.
What’s going on this time?
「Hardlett-sama, a letter has arrived from Melissa-sama in the capital, Dorothea-sama has gone into labor. However, it doesn’t seem like it’s going too well!」
「We’re going to the capital. Get ready!」
I stuff Pochi’s mouth full with my half-eaten bread and soup, then rush to make preparations for our trip.
I thought I could relax and slowly get ready for the capital, but the situation has changed.
Dorothea is giving birth at a high age after all.
I probably can’t do much, still it’s better to be by her side.
Celia, Miti and the others also scramble to get ready.
「Tell the escort squad to follow us later, I’m running there with Schwartz first.」
I quickly change into my journeying clothes, then pick up Celia who had tumbled to the floor.
「W-wait ten seconds! I’m still in my underwear!!」
Don’t worry about it, I’ll hide you under my cloak.
「Kroll, you come along too. Don’t forget the potion you got from Natia.」
As I give out instructions, I put Celia on the horse and mount Schwartz myself.
「It’s about noon now, let’s get there by dawn.」
Schwartz makes a face as if telling me not to demand such unreasonable things from him, but I pull the reins and kick his body with my heels anyways.
Left with no choice, he neighs and starts running like the wind.
Oh right, I should probably bring some dragon blood just in case.
「I have it here!」
Celia, who exposes her ass while still in her underwear, takes out a bag from her pocket.
Well done, I’ll rub your ass as a reward.
「At least do it after we’re out of the city! It’s in the middle of the day! Several hundreds of people can see!!」
I cut through the center of Rafen while rubbing Celia’s cute ass, making my way to the capital as fast as I can.
