It became so cold after Starts Castle was conquered it was decided to stay in the castle until the winter passed.
Patching the walls was done, and Clan-sama ordered everyone to rest until winter was over.
However, since the entire army could not fit in Starts Castle, some soldiers camped outside using tents. I am a little worried if I can take a rest like that.
Incidentally, I rented a room in Starts Castle and slept there. I was able to rent a rather large room, so my vassals were sleeping there with me.
The room was equipped with a heating tool using the magic stone of flame, which made it comfortable to spend time there.
The next morning.
“Get up… Ars-sama, get up!” (Voice)
I woke up while being shaken.
That voice is … Charlotte’s voice…
How unusual. She does not easily get out of bed, and either Ritsu or I always wake her up when it is breakfast time.
“It is unusual. Did you wake yourself up today?”
“I do not care about that, so come outside!” (Charlotte)
I was awakened and pulled up.
Charlotte dragged me by the hand and walked out of the room.
I wonder what she means, but I cannot resist when I have just woken up. I just followed her and went outside with Charlotte.
The moment I got out of the room, a tremendous coldness struck my body.
The inside was warm thanks to the heating tool, but the outside was extremely cold. I do not think I have ever seen a day this cold since I was reincarnated into this world.
I was taken outside before I had a chance to put on thick clothes, and I was freezing from the cold.
“It is cold. Huh, clothes.”
“Look, outside!” (Charlotte)
She completely ignored me and pointed towards the courtyard of Starts Castle.
While wondering what she is pointing at, when I look at the courtyard, I see a pure white landscape.
Apparently, it is snowing.
This is the first snowfall of the year.
I remembered now that Charlotte loved the snow so much that she would get excited every year when it fell. She is such a childish person.
I also like to see the snow, but it is too cold. Or rather, I feel like it is getting colder after seeing the snow.
“I like snow, you know? Okay, let us go outside.” (Charlotte)
She said that, but I did my best to stop her.
“Wait, wait! I will die of cold if I go outside in my current clothes! Let me put on some thicker clothes!”
“… If you look closely, you are wearing light clothes. Why are you dressed like that? It is cold.” (Charlotte)
“It is your fault …”
“Come early, because I am down in the courtyard.”
Amazed by Charlotte’s words, I went back to my room and put on some heavy clothes. I thought about going back to sleep, but my retainer asked me to go down to the courtyard.
There were more people in the courtyard than just Charlotte. It seemed that some young people were playing in the snow. Perhaps they were more excited than usual because it was the first time there was snow on the ground.
“Oh, Ars-sama is late. What should I make today? Please help me, Ars-sama.”
After that, Charlotte made me help her play in the snow.
We made snow sculptures of cats, dogs, and other things, though from the side people would not know what we were making. They might even wonder if we were making statues of monsters or spirits.
“I am hungry. I am going to eat.” (Charlotte)
Charlotte returned to the castle.
What a carefree person. Since I was the same, I went with her to eat breakfast together.
When I thought I could relax after breakfast, I was taken outside again. Ritsu and Russell also went outside with me and decided to have a snowball fight, which I had taught Charlotte before during the winter months.
At first, I was doing it with a small number of people, then other people who were watching started to participate, it became a large crowd, and it became a full-scale snowball fight.
Those who had been fighting the real battle a while ago were in a snowball fight, so it was quite the battle.
I was tired, so I went to the sidelines and just watch them.
Watching the situation with Mireille, who also did not participate in the snowball fight?
“Everyone is carefree. I am sure they think they won.” (Mireille)
“… They are certainly carefree, but … I am sure we have the upper hand during the war, right?”
“That is right. I just do not think my brother has given up on winning, and something might happen. Do not let your guard down.” (Mireille)
Is it about her brother Thomas?
Previously, he failed to ambush Clan-sama, but he may be scheming something again.
Certainly, as Mireille says, we must always be ready, but…
“Why are you drinking while saying that?”
“Eh? I have to drink alcohol. I will drink even if there is a war tomorrow.” (Mireille)
I was very amazed at Mireille, who was doing something so carefree like drinking a lot of liquor early in the morning.
