「Fuu…… that takes care of the money somehow.」
When I return to the inn, the girls are lined up on the floor and bowing their heads.
The only ones with their heads up are Pipi, who is bouncing up and down on the bed, and Casie, who is eating a pie.
「……I don’t have a fetish for making woman prostrate before me. Stop this.」
「There is no excuse for what happened…… even with the permission from the legal wife, this end result is just unacceptable.」
「I’m really sorry. I didn’t think I would get infected with Nonna’s stupidity too.」
「To think I brought shame to Aegir-sama…… b-boo at me! Step on me!」
Catherine and Carla also apologize dejectedly.
When I look at Celia, she seems to be particularly pitiful and depressed.
「Don’t worry about it that much. It just increases my work a little.」
The sum of gold I gave to Nonna was the amount allocated to the travel expense for our entire trip.
I didn’t think all of it would be spent during the few days I was away so even I couldn’t explain it.
「I asked Juno to help and he offered to pay as much as necessary, that’s why it’s alright now.」
He did make a shocked face though.
「I-in the first place, it is expected of the ones who invited us here to shoulder the cost…… kyaaah!」
「Be quiet, this is your fault!」「I’m going to squeeze those uselessly large breasts of yours!」
Whenever Nonna tries to speak up, the other girls concentrate their attacks on her and make her squeal.
Libatis covered the cost of our inn but we needed some amount of money to pay for the various odds and ends during our stay as well as food costs.
「Uuu, screwing up so quickly after becoming newly-wed……」
「We’re not qualified to be called wives……」
Miti and Maria are downhearted as well.
I can’t stand this gloomy atmosphere, this excursion was supposed to be fun.
I should hurry up and punish them so they can have a new mindset for tomorrow.
「I understand. Then I will punish you for spending all of the travel expense. But that will be the end of this ordeal, all of you will enjoy yourselves tomorrow.」
「Are you going to spank us? Or perhaps branding……」
Leah doesn’t joke around when she says that kind of stuff, so I’m not going to take her suggestions seriously.
Why would I injure my own women?
「Aegir’s the one giving the punishment, so it’s obvious what will happen.」
「Everyone, let us enter the bath and cleanse ourselves.」
「Eh? Eh? What’s happening?」
Kuu and Ruu don’t seem to understand.
Carla pushes their back from behind and guides them to the bathroom.
「It’s obvious. All of us will be punished in the ass with Aegir’s rod.」
Everyone leaks out screams and squeals of anticipation.
Alice, don’t cheer so loudly…… having your asshole violated isn’t a punishment for you, that’s why you’re getting something different.
Time passes to the Next Day
「Sniff, sniff…… I can’t go face everyone anymore.」
「Don’t cry! Whose fault do you think it is!」
Nonna sobs sorrowfully. Even though she’s the principal offender, I may have gone too overboard.
「It’s fine. A little bit of embarrassment is just right! More importantly…… Aegir, are you really 23 years old? Isn’t that something Nonna decided on her own?」
「Yeah, it was hard for me to make an estimate.」
I don’t know my real age which is why Nonna assigned my age to be one year older than herself.
「Aren’t you actually younger than that?」
「Why do you say that?」
Do I seem that childish?
I thought I acted more like an adult in recent times though.
「That thing at your crotch, it’s continuing to grow larger! If you’re really 23, then shouldn’t it stop growing at some point? During yesterday’s punishment…… I thought my ass was really going to tear.」
I can’t do anything about that even if you tell me.
It’s probably growing because I’m sleeping with so many women, no?
「If it doesn’t stop growing soon, everyone is going to end up dying.」
「I’ll try not to let it get too big then.」
I personally want it to get bigger.
（Heeey, everyone it’s time to eat~）
Casie floats over to where we are.
Fortunately, nobody in the inn can see her so she is free to do whatever she pleases.
「What’s the menu for today?」
（Stirfry vegetables with lots of chili peppers. It was spicy when I snuck a bite but it was tasty~）
Carla and Nonna scream.
（I’ll let the others know too~）
Casie flies away.
As she visits each room, I can hear screams and despondent crying.
The only one happy to find out the news is definitely Alice.
「O-our health is excellent so, we don’t need to eat……」
I grab Nonna as she tries to run away.
It isn’t admirable to leave food uneaten.
「Just give it up, I’ll at least scream in the toilet together with you.」
「Noooo~~! Are you telling me to suffer further humiliation on top of what happened!?」
「Shut up! You’re the one who spent too much in the first place!」
Carla drags the grumbling Nonna with her.
I pray for their good fortune.
After that, they all pulled themselves together, enjoying themselves while sightseeing Tortoent and other safe locations. We experienced troubles here and there on our trip but all of it was settled without accident.
「Right, right, Juno was saying. After that fight, the Divine Nation of Altair frequently did the same thing again and again. In the future, it seems Libatis will also be using all-out military strategies to deal with them.」
「Really…… that means a small skirmish is likely to occur.」
While I was chatting with Celia during our preparations to return home, someone in a military uniform comes and stands in the doorway.
「Hardlett……-san. Thank you very much! I couldn’t express my gratitude properly back then……」
Waiting at the door is Solana.
Apparently, she came to say her sincerest thanks.
「It’s a man’s duty to rescue women. Don’t worry about it.」
Looking at her again, I can see her face is a little flushed, clearly different from when I first met her.
I can probably forcibly push her down and have my way with her, but I don’t have time now……what a waste.
Maybe I can tease her a little bit.
I wait for the brief moment when Celia leaves the area.
I hug her and give her a forceful kiss.
Solana resists slightly because of how sudden it happened, but she becomes docile when my tongue enters her mouth, even going so far as to wrap her arms around my back.
Our tongues tangle together and we swap saliva as our lips make wet smacking noises.
「Puha…… you don’t waste any time.」
「I’m a sucker for beautiful women.」
「Fufu, as expected of the womanizer I’ve heard about from the rumors.」
Solana grins, bringing her face closer to mine on her own volition before giving me a soft kiss on the lips.
「That was my first kiss. Will I see you again…… someday?」
I should state definitely in situations like these.
「Aegir-sama, preparations are complete now.」
Celia is coming back, that marks the end of our meeting.
We will meet again eventually, and it is then I shall tear her virginity with my meat rod.
A few days after we got on the carriage returning home, we encountered a crowd of peddlers and travelers lining up on the road near the city of Schlite.
When I take a look at what’s going on, I see that guards from Libatis are the ones preventing them from moving forward.
「Hey, come on…… a road block here? I’ve got fresh vegetables packed in my wagon……」
「I can’t make it in time for my delivery time either. Just let us go already.」
Everyone seems to be disgruntled about being stopped.
「Is the road closed? How rare.」
I would imagine the road being closed near a precipitous mountain or near the river because of a fear for landslides and floods, but this place shouldn’t be exposed to any one of those dangers.
「Then it must be because of monsters or bandits.」「Maybe a wandering orc could appear too.」
Carla and Mireille stick their heads out to check out the situation too.
It’s hard to think the Libatis army would seal off a road because of bandits considering the safety we saw on their roads.
It must be due to the appearance of an unforeseen and hard-to-handle monster then.
「Just waiting here is boring. I’ll go and clean it up.」
「You’re doing something unnecessary again……」
Tretts holds his head in his hand.
This is perfect, it will probably be finished quicker if you escorts help out.
「Hey, what kind of monster showed up? If it’s an orc, I can lend a hand.」
I try calling out to the guards blocking the road.
「Hm? No, it’s not an orc but a lamia……lamias are just as troublesome as orcs but this one is a bit strange.」
A lamia huh, I don’t feel like exterminating it anymore.
「For some reason it wasn’t wandering around looking for prey, it was heading along the road towards Goldonia. This is something I’ve never seen before…… it was carrying a big luggage wrapped in cloth on its back.」
「Don’t tell me.」「Hey, hey.」「Isn’t that-……?」
Celia, Christoph and Gido have a general idea who it is.
I have an inkling as to the identity of such a baggage-carrying lamia who is heading to Goldonia as well.
I recall saying we were a pair but I guess she was trying to slither her way to my territory.
「Where is it now?」
「It’s actually pretty quick, probably near the Goldonia border now……」
「H-hey, I’m telling you it’s dangerous from this point on.」
I break away from the road block and continue on my way.
My escort unit should be waiting at the border zone.
If Lammy suddenly appears in front of them, they might exterminate her.
We reach an area not too far from the border and see a thin trail of smoke rising from a parted patch of grass slightly distanced from the road.
I get closer and sure enough see Lammy.
She’s cooking some soup on an open fire while coiled up and on the verge of tears.
Her exposed breasts are the last thing I should worry about.
「Uuu, I said I wasn’t going to do anything so why did they point swords at me…… I was just just abiding by that person’s promise and going to his house……」
「Well, that kind of thing happens if you appear out of nowhere.」
When I call out to her, she vigorously turns around.
Her crying face instantly changes into a smiling one.
「Aegir! To meet you in a place like this, this has to be fate……」
No, you were wandering on the road and causing a big fuss.
「Wait-! I-isn’t that a lamia!?」
「Stand back, everyone!」
The girls reel back from the abrupt encounter, while Alice’s hair gradually becomes a brighter red color.
It was as if fireballs could start flying at any time.
「Everyone, don’t worry. That lamia is, uhm…… Aegir-sama’s woman.」
Celia lets everyone know in a shameful-sounding voice.
You could say it with more oomph if you wanted.
「Aah…… I see……」「Understood. Dismissed.」「So he’ll violate even a snake, eh?」
How wonderful to see everyone come to terms with this so quickly.
「So you;re saying it’s fine for me to come with you, right?」
「Yeah…… there won’t be any problems if you’re with me…… though it might not be a good idea if you crawl on the ground like that.」
She’ll scare the people she passes by and probably start up some bad rumors.
「Alright…… we’ll unload all the luggage on that carriage and divide it up between the other carriages!」
「I don’t think everything will fit though.」
「Anything that doesn’t fit can be loaded on Schwartz. He can take the weight.」
I ignore Schwartz as he neighs unhappily and his caretaker who protests angrily.
「Eh? Eh? What’s going to happen to me?」
Don’t fret, Lammy. Leave it to me.
「Welcome back, feudal lord-sama!」
We part ways with Tretts and the other escorts on the border and I meet up with my own escort unit.
Lammy is with us too but nobody seems surprised.
「……is that woman a new lover of yours?」
「That’s right, her name’s Lammy. Protect her from now on.」
「Right, that goes without saying, but why is she only sticking her upper half from out of the carriage?」
Lammy is only sticking out her head and upper body from the ceiling of the covered wagon.
Of course, she is wearing clothes so it only seems like she’s exposing her head to outsiders.
「And also…… is it just one person? Why not ride in the feudal lord-sama’s carriage then?」
「I’m fine over here. I prefer looking at the scenery like this.」
The escorts have doubtful looks on their faces but were given the signal to depart.
「……? It seems only Lammy-dono’s horses are acting strange. Perhaps it’s better if she moves to another- ……」
「Schwartz, go help pull as well!」
Once Schwartz gets attached to the two-horse carriage, the speed of the carriage returns to normal.
Fuu…… I guess it can’t be helped that the horses are scared.
After all, lamias typically eat wild horses.
By the way, Lammy’s body is snugly curled up inside the carriage.
Everybody helped hide her body in the carriage and because there was no more space to fit the rest of her body, we didn’t have much choice but to let her upper body stick outside.
Now I have to think about what to do with her when I get back to my territory.
