hings more often than I created them.”

…Sometimes, when Schwarz-sama utters words that sound lonely, heavy, and painful, my heart aches.

“Now all that’s left is to polish it,” he said.

Did he stand up because his body had stiffened from being bent over? Schwarz-sama stretches his body.
In no time, the stepping stool was completed.

As he seemed a little reluctant to finish the work, I suddenly spoke words that came to mind.

“Schwarz-sama, would you like to try taking care of the garden?”

“Garden maintenance?” he asked in confusion.

I regretted it, thinking that asking the owner of the mansion to do garden work might have been rude.

“If you are knowledgeable about architecture, you may also be interested in landscaping.
You see, this garden has been untouched for a long time and is overgrown.
I am busy with the inside of the house, and I don’t have time to take care of the garden yet.
Ah, but if Schwarz-sama does not do it himself, you can just hire a gardener and give instructions.”

As I stumbled through my words, he placed his hand on his chin and furrowed his brow in thought.

“Landscaping, huh?” he said.

My heart raced.

“…That’s a good idea.”

I had a good feeling about it!

“I’ve actually been wondering about the garden.
I left it alone, thinking that this is what houses in the capital are like, but is it okay for me to remodel it myself?”

“Of course! You are free to remake it as you like, Schwarz-sama.”

After nodding generously to my ecstatic self, he looked around the garden and drew a blueprint in his mind.

“First, let’s clear the branches of the trees next to the main gate.
The view outside is obstructed.”

That’s a good idea.

“Then, we’ll mow the weeds and lay down gravel.”


“Next, we’ll dig a moat along the perimeter and sink spiked weapons into it.”


“We’ll build a wall in front of the main gate to prevent straight penetration to the entrance.
We’ll sharpen the spears and barbs on the outer wall, and let thorny vines or barbed wire creep over it…”

“W-Wait a minute, Schwarz-sama!”

I couldn’t help but cry out.

“A moat and a wall in front of the main gate…what on earth…?”

The master spoke with a serious expression as the servant panicked.

“I’ve always thought that the security of this mansion was a problem.
Especially during the day, when a woman is alone, she is careless.
We need to create a structure that can prevent and repel the enemy’s invasion.
Let’s add armor doors to the windows and dig a hidden tunnel to the outside from the underground storage.”

What should I do? The elegant noble mansion is turning into a fortress…

If you’re worried about intruders, please make a storage space for that pile of gold coins first…

I couldn’t say that, so I had to keep my mouth shut…
