In losing weight, limited caloric intake… No! It’s exercise!
After getting used to moving around from running, let’s try out some sports .
Having decided as such, first is stretching .
Bodybuilding is the most important part of exercise after all .
I go ahead and try stretching my body and, this body is flexible, flexible .
How smoothly my body stretches .
Yo, yo, to . Un . My body moves smoothly in just the way I thought .
Isn’t this a great body .
While having such a potential and not exercising, what a waste .
I don’t want to damage my knees, so for the first day I started from walking, but as expected, my state is very good .
I took a break after one hour of walking, but my my mood was elevated, a sign my body still had an urge to move .
However, that’s all for today .
After finishing my post-exercise cool-down and stretching, I took a relieving shower .
“Ya, Tou-sama . ”
While passing by father, I gave a refreshing greeting .
Father made a blank expression .
Come to think of it, I was never this energetic at noon before .
The me before would be in the middle of eating sweets on my bed at this time .
After exercising, I become thirsty .
Usually I would have some homemade lemonade with lots of honey without hesitation, but today I drew some water from underground and drank it .
Puha-! It’s pleasantly cool and refreshing .
Pure water without any impurities is as expected, delicious . Having been blessed with this nature yet having not taking advantage of it until now, how wasteful .
“Young master, If you would say it to us, we would draw fresh water for you at any time . ”
The maid, Mary, called to me while watching me draw water .
“No, I can do this much myself . I’m always causing trouble for you, so please let me take care of my own business myself . ”
“No, it’s not trouble at all . ”
Mary made a face like she had been doused by cold water .
Now that I think of it, I have a feeling this is the first time I have shown any consideration toward the maids .
Our Helan territory is famous for its beautiful nature .
A vast stretch of land abundant with vegetation, with over ten natural flower gardens within the territory .
The father of our country, the first king said, “If I’m going to die, I want it to be here,” expressing his love for this land .
However, The amount of people in this time period with a love of nature is decreasing .
Visitors to our territory decreases by the year; additionally, it possesses no unique local product .
Residents are moving into another territory when experiencing financial difficultly .
Our territory progressively declined in this way .
While it would fine if we received assistance from the king, sadly our house possesses no such connections .
Well, I’ll look for a hint for solving that along the way .
First is taking care of myself .
I ended up with free time after exercising . Normally I would… what did I do?
For now, a nap, I suppose .
However, I can’t sleep at all .
My mind is too clear .
With nothing else to do, I went to our house’s library .
Now that I think about it, it’s the first time I’ve come to the library .
The reason I call it a library is that it is so large that it makes you feel restrained .
A building with three floors with books lined up in shelves to the brim on each floor . Each floor is also respectively big and well suited to hide-and-seek…, what a great library!
“Well well, Young master . Welcome to the archives . ”
The person who popped their head out from the second floor was Modan-jii . He is the manager of the library; I knew his face and name, but I don’t know what kind of person he is .
“How are you today?”
“Hey, Modan-jii . My mind is hopelessly clear . Are there any interesting books?”
“Umm, Even is you say that, what field do you have interest in? Also, My name is Moran . ”
“Ah, Sorry Moran-jii . ” It was Moran, huh . I didn’t even know his name .
“Mn, Then I’d like to try reading a magic tome . ”
“A magic tome? You’ll start learning from fifteen at the academy, but there’s certainly no loss in establishing your fundamentals . ”
After saying this, Moran-jii disapppeared into the back of the library, then reappearing after a short while .
“This, This book is very easy to read . It’s contents are mainly introduction and beginner’s level, but it’s written so that it’s extremely easy to read . This is the ideal book for making your foundation . Towards the end it has a section on application, if you’re interested . ” After finishing speaking, Moran-jii threw a book down from the second floor .
I somehow managed to catch it, but this grandpa is quite bold in comparison to his looks .
Magic tome 1 Introduction by Chris Helan
Huh? The author is written as Helan . Perhaps an ancestor?
The book’s contents were, as Moran-jii said, very easy to understand .
In the three hours of my first day, I managed to squeeze out some mana .
Let’s learn how to change the property of mana tomorrow .
At evening, the food lined on the table seems to shine more than usual . Right now, I experienced the sensation of hunger for the very first time .
Because I had always been eating up until now .
From meat to vegetables, all of it is freshly pick from inside the territory . I took some of each for balance and enjoyed the meal .
“You were a little strange today, but you really are the usual Kururi-chan . ”
Mother gave a relieved expression .
“Thanks for the food . It was delicious,” I tell the maids, and I drank not the usual sugar-added apple juice, but some natural water .
“As I thought, perhaps the effect of hitting his head is remaining . ” Mother, seeing me drink water, ended up worried after all .
I entered the bath overlooking a flowerbed, then entered a bed unsuitably large for me .
A pleasant, luxurious life .
I fell into slumber in a satisfied mood .
