Atelier Tanaka Volume 1 &2 Chapter 17 Part 1
Alchemist Edita 1
After solving all my problems, it was now the next day.
“After all, owning a house is the best.”
I was spending a peaceful morning in my bed.
This is the best feeling. I feel completely satisfied.
I don’t think I can experience a better happiness than this. I could feel the warm sun coming through the windows as I lay in bed. There really is nothing better than this.
I can hear the sound of birds coming from somewhere outside the window. The noise coming from the birds tells me it’s still really early in the morning. Ah, I just want to lay here forever.
I’m happy. I’m so happy right now.
I’ve defeated the final boss after the long adventure. However, the hero now wakes up in a hospital bed. It feels like that kind of story. And now, the story comes to a peaceful end.
“I’m a hero..”
I’m a hero that owns a house.
Well, I didn’t actually defeat that dragon.
Anyway, I’ll enjoy my house all day today.
Ah, owning a home is simply the best.
I spent hours just laying in bed.
A while later, my stomach started to grumble.
“..Should I eat lunch?”
I’m not sure what time it is, but it’s most likely close to lunchtime.
I got out of bed and cleaned myself up,
Then, I could hear a knock coming from the front door. I don’t remember expecting anyone today. I wonder who it could be.
Maybe that military police guy actually brought his boss or maybe Sofia is about to start the second season A new story shall begin.
Either way, I need to answer the door to find out.
“Yes, I’m coming.”
I go down the stairs to the entrance.
I took out the key and opened the door.
And there was an unexpected pair standing there.
It was the blonde haired lolita and the ikemen.
Sophie was nowhere in sight.
“W-Was there something you wanted?”
Suddenly, I thought they may want the money they turned down yesterday. If that’s the case, I don’t have it. Still, even if I had to return it, being able to borrow that money really helped me relieve my stress over the debt on my house.
However, the atmosphere around them seems really strange.
The blonde lolita seems to be really nervous.
And the ikemen seems frustrated.
Both of them stood side-by-side at my front door.
“There is something I want to talk with you about.”
The blonde lolita says this.
Compared with her usual behaviour, it’s strange to see her act so docile.
Well, her acting this way isn’t so bad.
“.Eh, sure, you can go upstairs.”
The first customer to my atelier is a member of Team Orgy. I feel like my sanctuary has now been soiled by semen and love juices. It’s so painful to think about.
Well, I might be exaggerating.
But, it’s hard for a virgin to get over something like that.
“I’ll make some tea. Please, wait a moment.”
I guided them to the living room on the second floor and sat them down on the sofa. I then left to prepare tea for everyone.
In just a few minutes, I had three steaming cups of tea lined up on a tray.
I carried this to the living room and set it down on a table.
By the way, the living room has three sofas set up facing each other. Right now, the ikemen and blonde lolita are sitting on the sofa opposite me.
Father, please let me have your daughter! Or something like that.
“So, what did you want to talk about?”
I ask this question as I hand them their tea.
This tea really is delicious.
Then, the blonde lolita started to speak,
She would usually be sitting with her head thrown back and her legs crossed, but now she’s sitting like a proper lady with both of her hands placed on her knees. She’s not even acting like the same person. This really must be a serious issue.
“Is it something hard to say? If it’s about the reward if you can give me a few days I can pay ”
As I tried to speak, she cut me off.
“W-W-W-Will you marry me!?”
“.Based on your and Allen’s expressions, are you trying to use me as a matchmaker?”
“Y-You’re wrong! You and me, we should get m-married.”
Just now, that blonde Lolitas face is completely red. Her face is crimson from ear to ear.
After these few words, she just stared at the ground.
Occasionally, she would look up at me with her eyes.
Who is this lovely girl?
“I’m not sure I understand what’s going on. Allen do you know?”
I have no choice but to talk with the ikemen.
In the first place, why is he with her?
I don’t understand.
“EsterUmm..She’s fallen in love with you”
It seemed difficult for him to say these words.
This is the first time he hasn’t kept up the appearance of being a perfect ikemen.
“I thought she was meant to be your bride.”
“.Last night she rejected me.”
What is with this sudden development?
If this was so painful for him, why did he feel the need to come? Honestly, I just feel sorry for him.
“Sorry, I still don’t understand what’s going on.”
“L-l-l-l-like I said! We should get married!”
The blonde lolita says this and her face somehow manages to get even redder.
The excitement and tension reached its climax.
“I want to get married! I-I-I-I-I want to get married to you!”
The blonde lolita wants to marry me.
Even though she was supposed to marry someone else.
Why do I feel like this is some kind of trap? Maybe they’re trying to find a legal way of getting me killed? Something like a foreigner putting his hands on the daughter of a noble. Ah, the more I think about it, the more it makes sense for me to decline.
Still, what should I do?
I’ve changed over the past few weeks. I’ve become more empathetic as I’ve spent more time here.
“I’m sorry, but I can’t accept your marriage proposal.”
“T-That’s what I thought. Then, am I just not good enough!? I’ll do anything! If there’s anything you want me to do, I’ll do it! If marriage isn’t acceptable, then I can just be your lover or your mistress. If that still isn’t acceptable I’ll even be your s-s-s-slave!”
Now I’m doubting her even more.
Why is she so desperate?
“First of all, our social status is on two completely different levels and I think you should value yourself a little more than that. You’re still young; you have no reason to sacrifice your body just because you think you feel this way right now. Above all else, Allen is also a very respectable person that you already planned on being with.”
Even for an ikemen, his level of good looks is rare.
I’d fall in love with him if I were a woman.
I’d become his new number three.
“I don’t care about Allen! I prefer y-y-y-you! I want to be one with you! I want us to get married! I also am sorry for the way I treated you and I’m r-reflecting properly. I’m ready to apologize to you properly!”
She seems to be acting a lot more modest than usual.
I can see Allen trying to hold back his own emotions while tears fill up in his eyes.
“That’s why, umm, marriage, we should get married”
Stop repeatedly saying marriage, marriage, marriage.
There’s no way I’ll believe her.
I feel like she’s just trying to make me suspicious at this point.
“I’m not sure what you’re trying to do, but I know a pretty girl like you would never fall in love with a guy like me. As you can see, my looks are terrible and the difference in our age is also great.”
“I-Isn’t what’s inside a person more important!?”
“What’s inside of me is even worse.”
Pussy! Sex! Young girl rape!
It’s even worse than my looks.
“Even if that’s true, as long as I’m with you that’s fine!”
If the outside is terrible and the inside is even worse, what’s left?
It just makes no sense.
“Anyway, I can’t make such an important decision so easily. Then, excuse me, Allen, Ester. I have a schedule I need to keep for the afternoon. I can’t waste any more time at home.”
I want to eat my normal lunch while looking at Sophichan’s breasts, butt, and thighs.
I don’t have any time to waste on this nonvirgins pipe dream.
Please speak to me again once you’ve repaired your hymen.
The ikemen responds kindly. He seems to be trying his hardest to keep it together.
I feel like I should be the one apologizing to him.
“I hope you two can reconcile quickly. Please, try your best.”
“..It’s fine, but..”
I just really don’t want to talk about their love affair.
There was a similar situation on the airship.
When I looked at Ester, she seemed to be getting irritated.
Does she plan on getting me even more involved?
“We’ll never reconcile! That’s why you know! M-Marry me! Please, marry me!”
The blonde lolita looked at me and she looked like she was about to cry.
Just like before, she was hanging her head towards the ground and looking up at me. Her face was still bright red.
I ended our conversation there and asked them to leave.
Why was she so obsessed with marriage? That’s all she could talk about!
