Report with Myaro

(Thank you for reading at bayabuscotranslation.com)

Two days after I proposed to Carol, I was called by Myaro to meet her.

Upon entering the conference room of the Hou and Associates, Myaro was sitting at a table where the documents were spread out.

“Aah, Yuri-kun.” (Myaro)

I stopped Myaro who was about to stand up from her chair with my hand.

“It’s fine. So, what’s for today?” (Yuri)

“This is a report from the new continent since Cuffe is on a business trip.” (Myaro)

“Aah, I see.” (Yuri)

The reports from the new continent that Harold was sending out weren’t available to everyone, even within the company. The envelope was simply labeled ‘Port of Entry Report’. There were simply sealed in wax and marked ‘Do not open except by the executives’.

The word ‘new continent’ was hidden in the encoded code, so it wasn’t a big deal. In fact, it would be more reliable to use advanced key encryption, but there were no engineers and that would be considered later.

“Show it to me.” (Yuri)

I said as I sit down in my chair.

“Here you go.” (Myaro)

I flipped through the documents I received.

The words that had been replaced were fixed to the correct ones as if it had been done earlier. There was no question about the content.

“Two hundred houses… that’s about it? Hmm…” (Yuri)

“It’s still difficult to set up, right?” (Myaro)

‘After all, it seems that it will not progress in a year or so. Well, we are building from nothing anyway. Even so, we were constantly backing up such things as producing all the building materials for a house here and sending them over there.’

“So far, we’ve had a thousand people. Then, five people per house, is it?” (Yuri)

“Yes. However, houses come in all sizes. For a couple, it’s a single-family house, and for a single person, it’s a big multi-tenant house.” (Myaro)

“Hmm…” (Yuri)

‘That’s difficult…’

“As I expected, the scale will not grow.” (Yuri)

“Well… time isn’t enough. And the map hasn’t arrived yet.” (Myaro)

‘Mapping was an urgent task, so I urged a professional engineer to send it to me, but the map hadn’t arrived yet. The infrastructure over there isn’t as developed as over here, and I guess you can only do so much in a year or so.’

“Well, it would be tough if we get attacked now.” (Myaro)

“That’s right. After all, I should have abandoned your strange obsession and turned it into the Hou Household’s business on a larger scale.” (Yuri)

‘With the full backing of the Hou Household, the scale of the various parts of the project would have been a whole lot larger. Whether it’s the amount of wood to build a house or the number of ships.’

“What are you talking about? If you do that, the lords would have crossed the sea and marked out their territories by now. Then, it wouldn’t feel like war.” (Myaro)

Myaro said to defend my decision.

‘Whether they are marking out territories or not, Myaro’s right. They’re probably not ready for war. Not all Knights would say something like ‘Even if there is only one person left under my jurisdiction, it is the pride of the Knight to serve a lord and scatter!’.’

‘There are a few of them, but they are basically concerned about the protection of their own family. That’s why it’s a matter of whether they will be scattered on the battlefield, but whether or not they will die on the battlefield is a matter of consequence.’

‘They can charge, but if they don’t follow through, they will be relieved of their duties by the head of the General household. So of course, they charge valiantly, but at the root of it all, there is profit or loss.’

“I see…” (Yuri)

“I can affirm that. If we’re not careful, we might have a war between the Hou Household and the rest of the world. That might be interesting though.” (Myaro)

‘Don’t joke around. However… What should I do? My head hurts.’

“So, the existence of the new continent hasn’t leaked out?” (Yuri)

“It’s leaking. But it seems to be fine for now.” (Myaro)

“Why is that?” (Yuri)

(Thank you for reading at bayabuscotranslation.com)

“I think my deception is working, but… after all, Witches are ancient households.” (Myaro)

‘Ancient households?’

“Is there any relation to being ancient?” (Yuri)

“Yes, there is. In a sense, it means that they live with deep roots in the land with the farmers. Thanks to the deep roots in the royal capital, they are able to live a good life. They can’t just cut their roots and leave for a new place by themselves. That’s why it’s hard for them to be interested.” (Myaro)

“Hmm…” (Yuri)

“Unless, of course, the royal family takes the initiative in the migration plan. However, they don’t have the power to cross the ocean on their own.” (Myaro)

‘Certainly, no matter how hard they try, it seems unlikely that the Witches would ever learn celestial navigation.’

“So, how about the royal family?” (Yuri)

“I don’t think they’ve figured it out yet. However, the rumors are spreading as expected… It’s on the level of the common people though.” (Myaro)

“So, the sailors huh…” (Yuri)

‘The crew member in charge of the new continent has been made to sign a special contract and confidentiality has been imposed on them. There was a clause in the agreement that forbade anyone from entering the royal territory, but there are still a few people who are happy with the small amount they’ve got, leave the life of sea travel and have fun in the royal capital.’

‘Two people have been arrested so far, and they are living in the new continent with a large amount of compensation imposed on them. I think those are fishermen.’

“It’s the same with leaks from the sailors, but rumors will start circulating at the time of recruiting immigrants, right?” (Myaro)

“But the people who went there, haven’t come back, you know.” (Yuri)

‘It’s the ultimate mouth-sealing, so to speak.’

“That’s why various elements are intertwined, and various rumors are being fostered. The idea that there is a new continent is a bit far-fetched, but there are rumors of people moving all the way to the south or crossing oceans and ending up on the other side of the continent.” (Myaro)

“Won’t the rumor about the new continent spread faster?” (Yuri)

‘Well, it’s a peculiar story anyway.’

“There is something even more amazing. There’s an underground world behind the surface of the earth, and you’ve dug a hole to go there. And another one like you’re selling medicine that allows you to breathe in the water.” (Myaro)

“…Aah, don’t give me a headache. From those kinds of things…” (Yuri)

‘However, it’s not foolproof. It was only natural that such rumors would circulate according to their imagination since they hadn’t received any education to begin with.’

“Well, that’s why I don’t know how much the royal family have grasped. There has to be an approach from the other side.” (Myaro)

“Well, about that, things have changed a bit.” (Yuri)

“Change? What kind of situation?” (Myaro)

Myaro was grinning at me.

‘It’s hard to say.’

“Well, I’m about to enter the royal family.” (Yuri)

“…Yes?” (Myaro)

“I’m going to marry Carol.” (Yuri)

Myaro’s smile faded.

“Eh… is that so?” (Myaro)

“Yes.” (Yuri)

“Marriage… hah, I see…” (Myaro)

It seemed that she was taken aback.

“By the way, how did you change your mind about that…?” (Myaro)

“It’s because I’m having a baby…” (Yuri)

‘I’m sorry, but my reason is pathetic…’

“Haa… I see.” (Myaro)

Myaro frowned a little bit and was ready to think.

“…Are you against it?” (Yuri)

“No, progress on the new continent has been slow relative to the time available, and I’m looking forward to this country being reformed, but…” (Myaro)

‘I’m glad. I guess she’s not as shocked as I expected.’

“Well, I’m fine with it because I’ve already figured it out, but what are going to do about Lily-san and Shamu-san?” (Myaro)

“Eh… uhmm, what should I do?” (Yuri)

‘I hadn’t thought about it.’

“In the worst-case scenario, they will leave the company.” (Myaro)

‘Eh… up to that point?’

“Up to that point?” (Yuri)

“Yes, I think so.” (Myaro)

“…By the way, what do you think I should do?” (Yuri)

‘I wonder if that’s something I should ask Myaro. I feel the worst. But there’s no one else to ask but Myaro.’

“Why don’t you just have an affair already?” (Myaro)

“Don’t say something foolish.” (Yuri)

“I’m not joking, but… I think it’s the most immediate way to get the job done.” (Myaro)

‘I’m scared when you say it with a straight face. But as humans, there are things we can do and things we can’t.’

‘Cheating on the next day after I asked her to marry me, is it? That’s a badass level of scum. At least three months or three years from now… No, no, I won’t do that though.’

“Hmm… Well, I’ll talk to them.” (Yuri)

“Talk to the two of you? Directly?” (Myaro)

“Yes.” (Yuri)

‘I can’t keep quiet about this…’

“Are you out of your mind?” (Myaro)

“Eh?” (Yuri)

“No, I think that will be the worst.” (Myaro)

‘Is it? No, seriously? What does it mean it would be the worst if I talk to them directly?’

“Let me talk to them first. Please give me some time.” (Myaro)
