The Uncle and a Day in Haifeng Town
“Wowowow, really, he’s soooo cute, He ge . ”
Little Elan put Jinwen on top of her head .
“Hmph, bendaye is not some sort of pet!”
The tiny Jinwen staggered a top of Elan’s hat, proudly puffing out his chest .
Although he said that, his two ears were unconsciously twitching .
“Do you have a tail?”
Ka Luona also drew close to observe Jinwen .
Jinwen used his index finger to rub his nose .
“Huwang, of course I’ve got one!”
From Jinwen’s back, he shook his shaggy, brown tail .
“Jinwen, are you, uh, hungry?”
“I-Idiot, don’t just shake your head so easily! Wuaaa, I’m going to fall!!”
I used my hand to prop up Jin Wen who was sliding off Little Elan’s head and placed him on the bed .
“Hu, hu . You really scared me to death . ”
Jin Wen, in the shape of ‘大’, lay down on top of the white quilt .
“S-sorry . ”
Little Elan apologized, flustered .
“Hello, Little Jinwen . ”
Jin Wen, upon being frightened by Mademoiselle Phantom into a tizzy, quickly buried his head into the quilt . He covered his head with his hands and curled up in a ball .
Are you an ostrich?
But as expected, all girls like cute things . Even I would be interested in a palm-sized golden haired beast boy with a difficult personality . The only things that sucks is that I prefer cats, and this boy seemed to be a dog type .
“Am I being hated?”
Mademoiselle Specter rubbed her head and said .
“That’s only natural . Don’t use your hair to cover your face . ”
I couldn’t help but admonish Mademoiselle Specter . Mademoiselle Specter’s original appearance was extremely scary, especially at night .
Mademoiselle Phantom flung her head and flipped her hair behind her back, immediately turning into the glasses-wearing, knowledgeable, and elegant beauty .
“Jinwen, Jiejie doesn’t look like a specter to you, right?”
Jin Wen had tears in the corners of his eyes . He lightly lifted his head to quickly sneak a peak .
“Right . ”
Mademoiselle Specter extended her index finger .
“In that case, let’s shake hands . ”
“I’m really sorry for just now, that bendaye was scared . ”
Jinwen took steps forward, and suddenly tripped over himself . In a moment, he used his two hands to brace himself against Mademoiselle Specter’s index finger . But as a result, he couldn’t grab onto it at all, and he fell down on the quilt .
Jin Wen rolled into a standing position and used his hand to poke Mademoiselle Phantom’s fingers .
Strictly speaking, Little Elan is the real ghost race . Mademoiselle Phantom is a specter .
Little Elan offered to go and make food . Ka Luona would also use her theoretical knowledge from her home economics class to help . Although they did have the ability to make the spicy mapo tofu soup, like they did last time, letting them practice is a good idea . While they were cooking, I planned to bring Jinwen onto the street for a walk .
“Hengwang, what are you doing with me wang!”
Jinwen’s lingering fear of Mademoiselle Phantom remained . He scowled miserably while speaking .
“I’m taking you into the town, so I can make you some clothes to wear . ”
“Bendaye doesn’t need your help——”
I forcefully stuffed Jinwen into my inside cloak pocket . It was a lot warmer there .
“Hmph, there’s nothing that can be done . I’ll listen to you this time wang . ”
He stuck his head out from the pocket . Although his face was unwilling, the ears on his head were twitching back and forth .
I used a finger to gently stroke his hair .
“You’re now a fugitive, careful not to get caught . ”
“Who do you think bendaye is?”
After informing Little Elan and the others, we went into the town .
Compared to the oppressive atmosphere of how Duofa used to be, the people of Hefeng Town wore beautiful smiles . Although occasionally you could see a slave bitterly toiling away, as a whole, the people were a lot happier . At night, the market street was even busier, from the tailor’s shop to the red light district, everything you ever needed was available . On the street there were maiden’s wearing fashionable clothings . There were senior ladies, ladies wearing light makeup, and ladies dressed to the nines who were in charge of receiving guests . While I was walking on the street, I could feel Jinwen wagging his tail back and forth in my pocket .
“Don’t tell me that Little Jinwen is interested in girls?”
I asked in a low voice .
“How could that be? How could bendaye have any interest, wang . ”
He really is easy to understand .
We walked past a weapons shop and I immediately went in to take a look .
Yi, what sort of toys are these?
Can you really call these things weapons? You should be ashamed to put these out for sale
Naturally there wouldn’t be a place where we could make clothes to order for someone of this size, so I planned to make them myself . In line with my original design, I bought a couple pieces of handkerchief-sized cloth . When I was paying the bill, the store proprietor fiercely looked down on me . She said something like:
“Are you going to make underwear?”
This kind of talk .
Unfortunately, I am not the kind of person who would increase expenditure because of appearances . I have to say that I masked my face really tightly and was not embarrassed at all . Therefore, I could have a clear conscience and enjoy beautiful scenery, while at the same time, planning the design for how to tailor the clothes . While I was at it, I went and bought a needle and thread .
Ah, I see someone selling pine sugar .
“Jinwen, do you want to eat sugar?”
“Bendaye won’t lower my voice to ask you to buy some!”
Thinking of Jinwen’s stature, I said to the girl selling the pine sugar:
“Give me a piece the size of a fingernail . ”
When I was paying, I was looked down upon fiercely .
What is this! Even if, one day, someone asked me: Give me a three centimeters long knife, I would definitely work hard to make it .
Eh . It’s no wonder they have that kind of expression . What you don’t want to be done to you by others, don’t do . I’m not complaining about anything .
I gave the pine sugar to to Jinwen in my cloak and hurried on .
A cart from far away was gradually approaching . At first, I didn’t really care, but after it approached, I discovered it was the fierce-looking, middle-aged man who was selling slaves . His knife-like gaze was looking all around, obviously searching for something .
I continued walking as if nothing was amiss .
When we brushed shoulders, I felt him give me a once over .
Jinwen in my cloak could not stop shivering .
Luckily, we reached the inn, everything was all safe and sound .
“Dammit, bendaye has dropped his sugar!”
Little Jinwen sat on the bad unhappily complaining . It probably fell on the street when we met the slave merchant .
Elan and the others served nice and warm food .
“I’m digging in!”
After saying that sentence, I drank a mouthful of the soup before me .
Spicy mapo tofu soup – improved version .
It isn’t just an ordinary terribleness .
Obviously Little Elan, Ka Luona, and Mademoiselle Specter, all three worked on the soup . This is, as the proverb goes, if there are three monks, no one gets to drink water .
