“Okay. And with that, its…. Complete!” [Ryouma]
“Yeahhhhh!!!!” [The Workers]
On the evening of the fifth day, the wedding hall was finally completed.
We built the foundation and an open space to provide an area for the attendees to eat, but we also built two more things.
One was a church to serve as the place for the bride and groom to exchange vows, and the second was a newly built tower to house the celebration bell.
The church was small, being only about the size of a resting area at the park. It had an ellipse-like roof supported by pillars and was diagonally aligned. Depending on how one saw it, it might look like a shell, but it was made that way purposefully to make it easy for the attendees to see inside.
There’s also a hardening liquid plate colored in stained-glass style to serve as the windows. It’s strategically placed, such that when the light of the sun enters through it, the bride, groom, and the idols will all be lit up naturally. Of course, it’s just a building for now with no people or idols, but just the shadows on the beige wall cast by the evening sun is plenty impressive. A job well done, if I say so myself. Especially, considering that everything here was made in a hurry.
The tools needed for the ceremony and the decorations will be brought in by the maids starting tomorrow. I also intend to bring in the idols that I’ve been laboriously working on every night. I’m sure this place will become even more magnificent.
Now then, is there still something that needs to be done— Woah!?
“Ryouma! Thank you so much for building such a wonderful ceremony hall!” [Hyuzu]
While I was looking at the venue, someone suddenly grabbed me and lifted me up. I thought I was carried easily because I was in a child’s body, but it turns out that the other guards were with him too. Before I knew it, I was being tossed into the air for some unknown reason.
“Umm… Why are you tossing me?” [Ryouma]
“To thank you! And to celebrate!” [Hyuzu]
That’s a first. Hearing those two things used together.
That aside, aren’t these people too excited?
“But enough of that. With this, our work for the day is over, right?” [Hyuzu]
“Alright! You heard the man, boys! It’s drinking time!” [Hyuzu]
“Yeahhhhh!!!!” [The Workers]
Drink? You mean liquor?
As the workers cried out in response to Hyuzu-san’s words, I was thrown the highest I’ve been thrown so far… It was then that another voice resounded.
The cold voice of a woman resounded, and suddenly, the hands supporting me vanished.
“Oh no!” [Hyuzu]
“A-Are you okay!?” [Worker 1]
“Boy! You’re not hurt, are you!?” [Worker 2]
“Somehow. Well, I am an adventurer, after all. This much is fine.” [Ryouma]
I was a bit shocked, but I managed to land in time.
When I raised up my head, the men were looking at me with surprise on their faces.
Behind them was the head maid, Arone-san. Apparently, the voice earlier belonged to her.
Behind her were Rurunez-san and Riviola-san.
“Ryouma-sama, are you alright?”
“Yes. I’m fine. Really.” [Ryouma]
“Thank goodness… I shouldn’t have spoken while they were tossing you. My deepest apologies.” [Arone]
“Don’t worry about it.” [Ryouma]
Speaking of which, what was she about to say earlier?
“Oh, right. I don’t mind if you boys go out to drink, but you can’t take Ryouma-sama with you.” [Arone]
“B-But, Arone-san. Ryouma has been blessed with the divine protection of the God of Wine. He’s more than capable of drinking. And he’s been working really hard for our sake, so as thanks…” [Hyuzu]
“Even if Ryouma-sama is able to drink, you’re planning on going all out tonight, right? And then you’re going to vanish somewhere with the rest of your boys and have Ryouma-sama come home in the dead of the night all by himself. In the first place, do you really think the store will let him in?” [Arone]
“Uu… That’s…” [Hyuzu]
“I also believe you shouldn’t take Takebayashi-sama with you.” [Rurunez]
“Rurunez, you too?” [Hyuzu]
Based on the situation, it seems that Hyuzu-san is trying to take me with him.
But Arone-san and Rurunez-san were against it, so it was looking pretty bad for Hyuzu-san.
Personally, I don’t mind going with him, but as expected, this body is a problem.
Or at least that’s what I was thinking, but then Riviola-san softly bent over and told me something.
“They’re not just going out to drink?” [Ryouma]
“They’ll drink, yes, but it won’t end with just that. After all, it’s 2 days before the wedding.” [Riviola]
Is there some connection to it being two days before the ceremony? Unfortunately, I couldn’t really think of any such connection.
Riviola-san could tell from my expression that I had no idea what she was trying to get at.
“On the night before the ceremony, the bridegroom and the bride will have to stay with their respective families, so the date 2 days before the ceremony is the last night for the bride and the groom to move freely as if they were singles. Even the bride will surround herself with her friends and talk until late in the evening. Of course, there’s liquor too, but in the case of the men, it’s…” [Riviola]
