My Devil Is A Beautiful Female
After journeying for two days, they finally reached Juri!
"We are finally here!" Mio says while getting off the carriage
"Yawn…I am so tired." Roy says while stretching out his arms
"That was an eventful journey." Shira says with a smile
"It surely was an eventful journey-HAHAH" The merchant says with laughing
"Sir, everything is ready." The butler says to the merchant
"Okay." The merchant says to his butler and turns towards Shira, "I would really appreciate it if you guys accompany us for a few more days."
"I will of course double the payment."
Shira turns towards Roy, Mio, and Renjii.
"I don't see any problem with it." Mio says
"Yeah, we can even look around this town." Renjii says
"Sure." Roy says
Shira then turns toward the merchant and says, "I guess that settles it."
They start walking towards a mansion that they came to. This is one of the mansions that the merchant owns.
"Anyways, now that we reached Juri, Mr. Shira, accompany me. I will need someone to protect me there." The merchant says to Shira
"Okay." Shira agrees with the merchant's request.
"And tell your subordinates to escort my family inside the mansion. Then the maids inside the house will take them to their rooms."
"Wait." Shira says to the merchant and walks toward Roy, Mio, and Renjii, "Hey, go to the mansion with the merchant's family. Keep them safe if something happens. I have to go somewhere with the merchant."
"Where are you going?" Mio asks
"I am going with the merchant somewhere." Shira replies
"Okay. Leave it to us!" Renjii replies
Shira then turns towards the merchant, "Let's get going."
The merchant nods and gets on the carriage.
"We have to go there by carriage?" Shira asks
"It's only a five-minute ride." The merchant replies with a smile
They stop in front of a building.
It's not that big building. By the looks of it, it has two floors. The outlook of that building is not that eye-catching. It's made with bricks and silver-colored.
There are four guards standing in front of the main door. They are not Knights. They are dressed like normal guards. Armor covers their body. Two of them are holding swords and the other two holding spears in their hands.
Shira and the merchant walks closer to the door of that building.
As they approached the building, two of the spear guards block the door with their spears in an X shape. Shira and the merchant stops.
One of the guards, who is holding a sword comes closer to the both of them and asks "Sir, please identify yourselves before going inside."
The merchant replies, "My name is Akiyuki Shinbou and the owner of the Shinbou Merchants Group. And this is Shira Torizawa, he is my personal bodyguard."
'I am a bodyguard, huh.' Shira thinks inwardly with a smirk on his face.
"We are very sorry for not recognizing you." The guards apologize while bowing
The guards who blocked the door with their spears removes their spears and opens the door for Shira and Akiyuki.
"It's okay. Let's go, Shira."
Then they go inside the building. While walking, Akiyuki speaks up, "Mr. Shira, sorry for earlier."
"Hmm?" Shira expresses
"I introduced you as my bodyguard, I apologize for that" Akiyuki says
"Hahaha-that's not a big deal." Shira says
"Where are we going by the way?" Shira asks Akiyuki
"To a meeting."
"What's the meeting about?"
"The meeting is about the economic growth of this country. Last year, our country's economic rate was really bad and this year's growth is also not going too well. So, the top five merchants and the economy minister of this country decided to hold a meeting and discuss the economic growth." Akiyuki replies to Shira's question.
"We are here." The merchant then says
Shira and Akiyuki reach in front of a big double door. There are two guards standing there. One of them sees Akiyuki and Shira coming towards the door, so, he opens the door and bows slightly.
Shira and Akiyuki walk inside through the door.
The room is huge! Inside the room, there is lots of random stuff covering the room.
There is a big meeting table in the middle of the room. Five people are sitting around the table on chairs that are surrounding the table. And four people are standing behind those four people.
Four of them are merchants and one of them is the economy minister.
"You are late Akiyuki." One of the people says inside the room.
"Hahaha, I am sorry, I am late. Should we start the meeting now?" Akiyuki asks with a smile
