Trap 3 – An after work drink
Preface of the author
It was a long time! A trap before the next chapter.
Don’t skip them okay?
The feeling of having a beer in the bath after work is unbearable!!
I worked hard today again!!
This is a reward for my hard work!!
Yebisu beer ! 1)http://www.sapporobeer.jp/yebisu/english/img/sp_column_05_bgimg.png!
(Lutz)「But, this drink is really amazing, isn’t it~?」
Lutz said that while she drank her beer.
We were both hiding our body with bath towels as we sat in the bath.
(Riel)「I am afraid that I’m not good with the feeling of bubbles. 」
(Kaya)「Me too, I prefer Japanese Sake. 」
Riel and Kaya had already changed into their yukata, and they, and were relaxing with a drink.
(Ellis)「I think wine is good. Especially white. 」
(Tori)「I am also part of the wine faction. Well, more of the red one. 」
Ellis and Tori also declared being part of the wine faction.
(Millie)「No, you know, what is everyone talking about? Because any kind of alcohol is delicious. However, beer is the best in the bath!!」
I could only concede this much.
(Lutz)「That’s also a part of your hobby I guess. As one would expect of Millie, she doesn’t only drink whiskey. 」
(Millie)「Well, I already drank whiskey before in this place and I was smashed. 」
Yes, it was good to have whiskey or another highly charged alcohol, but it seems that when your body is warm, it is easier to get drunk and fall dead asleep.
That’s a shame, but at that time, I seem to have been carried by Yuki-san to my futon, I can’t remember……
(Millie)「What about, Yuki-san?」
(Ellis)「No, isn’t it common sense to face the ladies in hot water?」
Ellis quickly answered.
(Lutz)「Yeah, I get it. But do you think he would get embarrassed to see our nine bodies naked?」
Lutz answered that.
Rather, weren’t you the one who wants to see him?
I didn’t want to lose to you in term of sexual desire.
(Ellis)「Well now, why are you talking about him?」
(Lutz)「Oh, that’s because. Dinner is over, and it is already the time for Aslin’s and the others to take care of him…… 」
That said, Ellis looked at her clock.
It was currently 11 pm.
(Millie)「Mou, are they resting?」
(Ellis)「Yes they are. Regardless of Labiris, that should be the limit for Aslin and Philia to stay awake. 」
(Lutz)「Those two are important for Onii-san. Well, for us too nonetheless. 」
That’s right, the smiling faces of the two girls were really helpful since the Dungeon’s busy time.
I didn’t want to see any more unhappy eyes, I want everyone to remain happy.
No, that might not be the case.
Yuki-san had to shoulder our burden as representatives.
Aslin and Philia were still a bit far from understanding, but they were also representatives.
Yuki-san, are you a criminal?
Even though both agreed for Yuki-san’s sake.
The silence continued for a short while.
Bit by bit, I was savoring the alcohol from my glass.
It was a good time.
(Lutz)「But that’s how is it. The alcohol is good but the sides dishes are also great. 」
Lutz unexpectedly opened her mouth.
(Millie)「Right. Especially when the food suits the taste of the alcohol, don’t you think?」
(Ellis)「But you already ate dinner, no?」
(Riel)「It goes to different stomach2)like the ladies say, there’s a separate place for dessert, Ellis. 」
When I agreed, Ellis objected and Riel said it was no problem.
Well, I was also having a dessert to accompany my drink.
(Yuki)「Oi. Are you all coming out of the bath?」
Yuki-san’s voice could be heard from outside the female dressing room.
(Lutz)「Hai. I am going out, onii-san. What is it? If you want to enter the bath, want to do it together?」
(Yuki)「No, no. I just have something for you, so I’ll only enter a bit. So don’t get out for the moment. 」
(Lutz)「Oh, sorry. We’re having a drink here. 」
(Yuki)「I see, as I expected. Everyone, you’re not naked right?」
(Lutz)「Yes, it is okay」
(Yuki)「Then, I’ll bother you. 」
That said, Yuki entered.
Along with a sweet smell.
What was that smell!?
A good fragrance that seemed to perfectly suit the alcohol!!!
(Yuki)「Fufufu, it’s from my hometown, Japan. We usually take it to accompany sake. Look here!!」
Several pieces of squared pottery with dishes were placed on the small table at the changing room.
What were these dishes?
Skewers with meat were lined up, they brought a nice smell.
But they were small. It seemed that the shape could be swallowed in one bite.
(Yuki)「This is called『Yakitori』！! The typical ones with chicken skin!3)Author made a play of words that I don’t really know how to adapt for English. he said Daihyou wa Torikawa. Daihyou means representative. And Torikawa means Chicken skin… So the author almost said Representative Tori as she loves meat! And peach!!」
He pushed two dishes at the same time.
Both had a strange sauce poured over them.
(Yuki)「This sauce. Well, the foundation of sake is salt, so have a taste here. 」
Everyone, without any doubt, reached out for the Yakitori.
No, originally the taste was strong.
However, because of the alcohol, all the richness of the taste was displayed!!
Alcohol was flowing.
The sound of the alcohol going down the throat could be heard.
Everyone downed 4 glasses in no time.
(Yuki)「Next is Sunazuri4)Tuna on skewers. It’s crisp. This is also salted, so excuse me. 」
This is delicious!!
(Yuki)「Chicken tenders, Liver, Tsukune5)Tsukune is a Japanese chicken meatball most often cooked yakitori style and sometimes covered in a sweet soy or yakitori “tare”, which is often mistaken for teriyaki sauce, Negima6)Yakitori with chicken and onion, Ikayaki7)Grilled squid, Shishamo8)It’s the name of a fish!!」
I thought that all of them were good with the exception of the mixed chicken.
Before anyone’s surprise disappeared, I was the first to act and took another kind of yakitori.
Gatsu Gatsu, gokugoku, pakupaku, ngungu9)Sfx for eating!!
Yakitori are delicious, Alcohol too!!
「Puwa~ it was delicious. 」
「It really was. 」
Everyone looked at the empty dishes with such feeling and further poured sake.
(Millie)「Nahaha. Yakitori tastes the best with alcohol. 」
(Lutz)「A wonderful food culture. From onii-san’s hometown. 」
(Yuki)「Well, clean up and sleep. Don’t drink too much or you’ll get a stomachache. 」
Yuki-san spilled those words and left.
Everyone looked at each other’s stomach.
That reminded me, every day since I had come here, I ate until my belly was full and drank until I slept.
(Riel)「… No problem. I am exercising. 」
Riel said, as she was still drinking alcohol.
(Tori)「In that case, I am also good. 」
(Kaya)「… I too. 」
Tori and Kaya, the road work faction, were also keeping the path.
(Lutz)「….. Even if I eat, I don’t gain weight. 」
(Ellis)「Hey!? You traitor!!」
Ellis after she heard everyone retorted while throwing her drink as a punishment.
(Lutz)「Well, I do plan to do a lot of exercises in the future, so there is no problem. 」
Lutz said as she drank.
Thus, everyone had a few more drinks.
