And he was fast.

Even when we walked at the same time, I would realize that he had already gone far ahead.
I was constantly running and struggling to catch up, and one day he asked me if I had a medical condition and took me to the medical room.
It’s your fault! (I screamed in my head).

Furthermore, he was a glutton.

He just kept eating.
He ate a lot, but his manners were terrible.
He gnawed on a steak without cutting it with a knife at a palace banquet, drank soup by dipping his mouth into the bowl, and even licked the plate clean.
Despite that, he was still charismatic and had a great personality.

“I bought a house.”

General Gastagyu said this on a certain weekday after lunch break.

Since he had been assigned to the capital, he had been staying in a dormitory for soldiers… which was basically a facility for unmarried junior soldiers.
I also lived there, but I couldn’t relax with a general wandering around my private space morning and night.

So, that morning, I proposed a gentle move as a representative of the residents.

The general listened to me with a sulky face (super scary!) and disappeared as soon as his morning work was over.


And now, back to the previous dialouge.

“Huh? You bought a house… when did you do that?”

“Just now.
On my way back from lunch, I found a mansion with a ‘for sale’ sign down west of Castle Street.
The furniture was included, so I bought it.”

“What? Did you sign a contract?”

“I paid money.”

… This person bought a house on his lunch break.
And with cash!

I don’t understand.
The scale is too big and my mind is blown.

But now, I can say goodbye to worrying about living in the dormitory! I was secretly happy in my heart… but things took an unexpected turn.

“The laundry is piling up.”


General Gastagyu complained about this on the second day after buying the house.

“If I wait until I come back from work, I won’t be able to do the laundry or cleaning properly.
How do single people live their lives?”

…This person is bad at daily life.

Well, in the military’s collective living, the attendant and the dorm mother took care of everything, so I can understand the situation… but still.

“If it’s too difficult for you alone, why don’t you hire a servant?”

“A servant?”

I nodded in response to the general’s question.

“If you leave the housework to a professional servant, Your Excellency can have more free time for yourself.
If you have a deal with my family’s talent dispatch union guild, I can introduce you to someone right away.”

“I see, please do it.”

I never thought that this casual conversation would be a turning point.
