At the site of the highway, small groups of mercenaries were gathered, a confirmation of the survey area was being perform. A small fortress that blended into the surrounding scenery was built in this unnatural location and was being used as the forward base for the survey, water and food were brought into the place.
“Well, we shall head back first.”
“Thanks for your hard work! Leave the rest to us.”
After the survey duty of the Darkness God Corps was taken over by the mercenary troop, they took the carriage back down the night road to the relay town. The adventurer group was still at the site continuing their activities. It seemed that the recovery and transportation of the victims’ bodies will be done by tomorrow or the day after.
“Has Sun gone to sleep?”
“Yes, most likely she is tired from all that tension.”
Yuusuke felt relieved after peeping and seeing that Sun was quietly asleep on Aisha’s lap. As she continued to let her sleep until they reached the town while gently stroking her bangs.
“Ah erm, would you like to switch….?”
“Nonono, it’s alright. Anyway, it will become embarrassing.”
Yuusuke joked about it as he saw Sun lying on her lap. While Isotta who was sitting directly opposite began staring at Yuusuke’s lap without him noticing.
