“Ufufu, I’ve never seen Caesar blushing before.”
Royford skillfully wrapped the nightwear, pillow cover, and bed sheet as he spoke and passed it to me.
I was so excited that my hand shook slightly.
This, this is the set of bedding made from Macvestas silk that I’ve always dreamed of having…!
I couldn’t help but smile widely.
“Good for you Louie-chan. I would feel bad if I wasn’t able to sell it to you when you made such a face, I’m glad.”
“No, haha, I’m sorry…”
What kind of face did I make?
I was embarrassed and covered my face with my hands.
“What is the total amount… It’s quite expensive, isn’t it?”
“Well, it should be roughly 1 million Lutz.”
No matter how much money I own, I still feel like a common person.
I wouldn’t mind if I paid for it, but I feel bad for making Caesar buy such high price items for me as presents.
I suppose the anklet was considerably expensive as well…
Even if Caesar is a nobleman, it’s rather uncomfortable getting things for free…
Knowing the price of the items in this store makes me think so.
Should I bake some pastries? I thought so, but the pastries I make are way too simple…
Somehow, I felt that it’s not enough.
I looked around the shop and spoke to Royford.
“Uhh…I was thinking of giving Lord Caesar something as well.”
“Oh my, that’s a great idea. What would you like?”
“Something that’s kind of like the bedding or anklet…”
“Ahh…You mean something high grade?”
Royford leaned in and asked.
“I’m sorry if I sound rude, but is Louie a nobleman? You didn’t hesitate to buy the nightwear and you can’t make much money from being a doctor at the base alone, right?”
“Ah… No, I’m a commoner. That’s, I have money I earned from my research…”
Certainly, it’s very questionable.
Caesar and Royford said that their parents know each other, and they’ve probably never seen or heard of me in the nobleman’s circle before.
“Is that so! That’s amazing. Well then, do you have a budget?”
“Ah, yes…I don’t use much anyway, so it can be the most luxurious item.”
Royford started shuffling through the documents he had in his hand while pondering.
The stock he had was sorted in order, he seems to be a clean person.
“For Caesar-chan… Well, I think I have almost anything you can give to him… Hmm.”
“I can’t think of what to give him either…”
The things around Caesar are simple and of good quality.
Towels and stationary have his initials, and those are probably prepared at home.
If I choose something bad, my sense of taste will be NG…
As I was brainstorming, Royford suddenly clapped his hands.
“I thought of the best thing ever, I might be a genius.”
“Royford started fishing around in the back with sparkles in his eyes.
When I was told that, I couldn’t help looking forward to what would come out.
Royford took out a beautiful square box.
“It’s the same Macvestas silk product though.”
Bedding for Caesar too…?
I’m using the same bed as him so there’s no use…
When I thought so, I opened the box and was at a loss for words when I saw the content inside.
“How is it!? Didn’t I do well!?”
“W-well done you say, this…”
It was a beautiful piece of Macvestas silk with splendid decoration……underwear.
It consists of a bustier and shorts, there’s even a ribbon included to tie it around the neck.
What’s the glove and garter belt for…??
(T/N: Heh, I wonder ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°))
Delicately knitted with fine frills and laces, it gives a clean impression but it’s too erotic to wear it normally.
“You see, this was ordered by a popular prostitute, but it seems like she was taken over by another person before it arrived. So this item stayed in the Macvestas sewing shop, nobody knew what to do with it, and it’s now a deadstock so I bought it.”
“It was quite expensive because even the royal capital doesn’t use this high-grade silk, but it’s an erotic design right? There’s no demand in the countryside. I was thinking of selling it to the trashy noblemen in the royal capital though.”
I glanced between Royford’s grinning face and the underwear with my mouth wide open as he explained.
With this… what am I… supposed to…
“If you wear this for him, it’ll be the best present ever!”
I immediately rejected the idea.
When I was imagining myself wearing it, my head exploded from embarrassment.
“It’s not impossible, this is a bustier that can be adjusted in size and the shorts are also tied with a string.”
“That’s not the problem!”
The size doesn’t matter!
Wearing this to seduce him, impossible! Absolutely not!
“Louie-chan will look good in it~ Besides, I think Caesar-chan will like it as well.”
“Uu…Uu…”Certainly, Caesar has a dirty side to him so…
I feel like he’d be happy to do this kind of costume play.
“I wish I could come up with other gift ideas… I think this is the one I’m most pleased with.”
“And you rarely get to find this. First of all, I never make this kind of thing with Macvestas silk. It’s a bargain. The texture is the best.”
As expected, a merchant is good at tempting people…!
Originally, I fell in love with the Macvestas silk and have researched it, so I know how conservative the supply is.
Basically, they only produce orders for royalty and higher noblemen. In addition to being a consumable item, it isn’t possible to make the amount to be passed to commoners because it is popular not only as consumables but also in terms of practicality and status.
I think it was a fairly well-known nobleman who ordered this underwear.
“If you buy this, maybe I can continue selling you bedding made from Macvestas silk as a customer~”
I was considering it, but ended up buying it.
“Thank you~ That will be 1.5 million Lutz~”
“Well, there are few such rare items. I won’t sell them cheaply.”
Royford is a shrewd person.
Well, looking at the balance I have right now (I don’t know accurately but) it didn’t seem like that great of an amount.
I gave him a cheque so that he could withdraw the money from the nearest guild unit.
By the way, since it was my first time writing a cheque, Royford taught me how to write it…
