 The next day.


 Rikuya and the others came to Canale Castle, and I was there to greet them with Ritsu.



“So, this is Canale Castle…” (Rikuya)



 Rikuya, who had entered the castle, looked at the inside of the castle with a curious look on his face.



“Brother, are we going to have a lot of good food today?” (Takao)


“You’re only interested in food… We’re here to talk business, so we’re not eating!” (Rikuya)



 Rikuya said, and Takao looked crestfallen.



 Ritsu then led the three of them to my office.


 I would have liked to hear more about their backgrounds, how they came to Messiaen, why they could not become vassals, etc., but I decided to introduce them to their jobs first, as I had promised.



“But are you really going to introduce us to a job?” (Rikuya)


“Yes, Canale is in the process of developing, and there are many job openings. What kind of job are you looking for?” (Ars)



 Ritsu asks them a question.



“I would like a job where I can put this my wisdom to good use.” (Maika)



 Maika answered that question.



“Let’s see… you mean a job that uses your brain, is that correct?” (Ars)


“Hmm.” (Maika)



 Maika nodded.




“Wait, wait, that may be fine for you, but Takao won’t be able to do it. Takao can only do the heavy lifting.” (Rikuya)


“D-doing heavy lifting? There’s no way someone like me, who is weak, can do that.” (Maika)



 They have too many different characteristics to be able to do the same job.



“Why don’t you three try different jobs?” (Ars)


“Di-different jobs…?” (Maika)



 The moment I suggested that Maika made an uneasy expression.



“I’m sure it’s not a bad idea, but I’m sure my brother and Takao would feel uncomfortable without me. I think we should find a job that the three of us can do together…” (Maika)


“She acts and behaves like a big shot, but she’s surprisingly timid. I hope we can work together.” (Rikuya)


“I’m not timid! I’m only saying this because I’m worried about you and Takao!” (Maika)



 Maika tries to lie while looking quite anxious.



“Ah, yes, yes, we’ll put it that way.” (Rikuya)



 Rikuya blocks her words quietly.



“Takao can’t work alone, just like Maika.” (Rikuya)


“If there was a job where he had to eat, he could do it by himself.” (Maika)


“Look, he’s just like that.” (Rikuya)



 It’s true that leaving Takao alone seems rather unsettling.



 But what kind of job could Maika and Takao, both of whom have contrasting skills, both be able to do at the same time?



“To begin with, we want to start a new business, not get a job somewhere else.” (Maika)



 Maika suddenly said something that seemed to overturn the premise of the discussion.



“A business? But then you would need starting capital…” (Ars)


“Yes Maika, we don’t have any such money.” (Rikuya)


“…If my brother sells that treasured sword, we can get the capital.” (Maika)



 Maika said as she looked at the sword that Rikuya was carrying.



“Hey! I told you I would never sell this! Don’t tell me you didn’t hear me!” (Rikuya)


“I heard you, but I’m not convinced. If it’s practical, the sword isn’t that great, so why don’t you just sell it and turn it into gold?” (Maika)


“Hey, hey, we can’t do that. Without this thing, when we return, there will be no one to stand by us.” (Rikuya)


“If that sword had such power, we wouldn’t have had to come to the Somerforce Empire. To move people, all you need is money.” (Maika)


“That’s not true!” (Rikuya)



 The mood was getting a little sour. The conversation was something only the two of them could understand, so we are not sure what was being said.



“Takao, what do you think!?” (Maika)


“Huh…? I’ll follow brother…” (Takao)


“Hey, it’s two-against-one!” (Rikuya)


“Takao, if we sell the sword, we’ll get lots of money and all the tasty food you can eat.” (Maika)


“Huh? Then let’s sell it.” (Takao)


“Fufufu, it’s two-against-one.” (Maika)


“Hey, hey, that’s not fair! Don’t bring Takao into this!” (Rikuya)


“It was brother who got us into this mess in the first place!?” (Maika)



 Maika and Rikuya glared at each other.



“The sword is worth a lot you know. The people of Somerforce can’t accurately measure the value of this sword, can they?” (Rikuya)


“In our country, it’s a piece that is considered priceless, but… I don’t know how much it will cost in this country.” (Maika)



 Maika affirms that.



“May I see that sword for a moment?” (Ristu)



 Ritsu asked.



“Here, it’s fine.” (Rikuya)



 With that, Rikuya took the sword from his waist and showed it to Ritsu.



 It was a curved sword, similar in shape to the one he had seen in his previous life.


 The sheath is red and gold. The golden part seems to be actually made of gold.


 The hilt seems to be made of gold. There is a blue jewel embedded in it. The pommel is also made of gold, and there is a blue jewel embedded in it as well.



“Can you pull out your sword?” (Ritsu)


“Sure.” (Rikuya)



 Rikuya pulled out the sword.


 The sword was beautiful. I don’t know much about swords, but it looks like it was made by a skilled craftsman.



“The sword has a shape similar to that of the scimitar… It looks like it will cut very well. Also, this gemstone is a blue diamond.” (Ritsu)




 When I heard blue diamond, it seems like it was a very expensive thing…


 No, that was on Earth.


 I don’t know how much blue diamonds cost in this world.



“The design of the scabbard and hilt is superb, and the materials used are beautiful. Looking at the sword body, it seems to be very practical as a sword. …I think this would fetch a very high price for a nobleman who enjoys collecting weaponry. I think it will exceed a hundred gold coins at the very least.” (Ritsu)


“Hundreds!? That’s a pretty ridiculous amount, isn’t it?” (Rikuya)



 With ten gold coins, you can live for a year, so ten times that amount is quite a lot of money.


 Rikuya seems quite surprised.


 On the contrary, Maika has a dissatisfied expression.



“I think it’s more expensive than that, I thought it would be at least a thousand coins.” (Maika)


“It’s just the lowest. I don’t know how much collectors will appreciate it until I show it to them. I wouldn’t be surprised if some of them say a thousand coins.” (Ritsu)


“Is it possible to have a thousand coins…?” (Rikuya)



 Rikuya looked at the treasured sword in his hand and swallowed hard.


 He thought it could be sold, but he didn’t imagine it would be worth that much.


 He didn’t seem to have any intention of selling until just now, but his heart seems to be moving a little.



“A hundred pieces is not enough to start a business, and I’d like to see a higher price. Yes, this time I was going to ask you to introduce me to a job, but if you don’t mind, could you go and find a buyer of treasure swords? I’ll give you a percentage of the proceeds, and it shouldn’t be a bad deal.” (Maika)


“…Hey, I’m not going to sell it! Don’t go ahead with the sale on your own!” (Rikuya)



 Rikuya warned Maika, who had started negotiations on her own.



“Well, you’re so persistent. If you sell it, everything might go well.” (Maika)


“Kuh…” (Rikuya)


“I appreciate your offer, and if you want to sell it, I will lend you my ear.” (Ritsu)



 Ritsu said this. Certainly, even for the Louvent family, it’s a conversation that only leads to benefits.



 Rikuya is troubled while looking at the sword.


 No matter how important it is, I feel like he should be selling 100 or more gold coins since he had no money, but even so, it’s a very important thing to worry about.



“I’d certainly like that much gold… But still, this treasure sword is too valuable to put a price on in the Country of Yo. Even a thousand gold coins is too low a price for this thing.” (Rikuya)


“It is true, but since we can no longer return to the Country of Yo, it is of no use.” (Maika)


“Guuuu…” (Rikuya)



 Hearing Maika’s words, Rikuya seemed to have no words to object.


 From the way they talk, it seems like a sword that would be of tremendous value in the country of Yo.


 If it’s true, what is that treasured sword?


 It is true that it seems to have been made by a very skilled craftsman, but that alone would not make it worth that much.



“What is that treasured sword? Is it really that valuable in your country?” (Ars)



 I asked because of my curiosity.



“This is a family heirloom that has been handed down in the Fujimiya family for generations. This is Dragon’s End, as the name suggests, it is a famous sword that is said to have once slain a dragon.” (Rikuya)


“Once slain a dragon…” (Ars)



 I have never seen a dragon since I came to another world. Do they exist here in the first place? Maybe it does not live in Somerforce Empire. I heard that they exist in other countries, but to be honest, I don’t really believe it. Since I came to the other world, I have seen some animals that do not exist on earth, such as dogs with wings and cats with horns, but I have yet to see anything like the demons that seem to exist in fantasy.



 However, he said that they had been handed down in the Fujimiya family for generations. After all, it is unlikely that such a thing could be found in an ordinary commoner’s home, and they must have been of high status in Yh country.



“There is one thing I would like to ask you.” (Ars)



 Here I decided to boldly ask about their origins.



“What is it?” (Rikuya)


“I have been researching about the Country of Yo and have learned that the royal family of Yo has the surname Fujimiya. Does it have anything to do with you guys?” (Ars)


“Did you look into it?” (Rikuya)


“…You must have gotten information about Yo from the Samaforce Empire, which I’m sure does very little trade.” (Maika)



 The two of them, Rikuya and Maika, were quite surprised. Takao is still maintaining an attitude of nonchalance.



“You guys don’t seem like a bad bunch, so I guess I can talk to you… I am the current head of the Fujimiya family, which originally ruled the country of Yo.” (Rikuya)




 He simply revealed his true identity.
