“Shall we sleep then?”
Everyone got up and left the room with Grandpa Elvis’s words. Takeo and Alice headed to their room.
“I’m looking forward to receiving the furniture that we bought today.”
“In my case, more than excitement, I’m worried about whether you’ll be able to sleep comfortably, Lady Alice.”
“Sir Takeo, do you think that you would be able to sleep?”
“The bed that I was using was similar to the one that we chose so I think that I’ll be fine.
Besides, a beautiful woman is sleeping next to me so that alone is enough to make me happy.
Could I ask for anything more?”
“Fufu, Thank you.”
I’ll go and prepare the hot water for the bath.”
“Someone will do it though?”
“Ah, I refused them.
Filling hot water by carrying it till here is hard work so I told them that I would do it whenever I’m here.
I’ve requested them for the cleaning though.”
“Ah? Even though it’s fine?”
“No, no. It’s bad to use so much firewood.
Was the hot water yesterday good enough?
Should I make it a little null?”
“Yes, please do.”
Takeo headed to the bath.
Alice was wondering whether it was alright for her to soak in for longer than last night as she excitedly waited for the hot water to be prepared.
Takeo returned to the room to find Alice laying on the bed.
“Lady Alice, the bath is ready.”
Alice got off the bed and headed to the door.
She came and stood in front of Takeo.
“It’s not fine to take a bath together okay?”
“…………I didn’t say anything.”
Takeo said thoughtfully.
“Fufu. Then I’ll be back.”
Alice went to the bath.
Takeo went to his study while Takeo was in the bath.
“Lady Alice did say that she would take long.”
Anyway, he sat in front of the boxes of the rifles that were piled up and smoked his pipe.
“The furniture will come tomorrow so I’ll move this luggage to one corner near the door of the bedroom.”
He moved the rifle, the boxes, and the other items to the door.
After moving his stuff he looked around the room while thinking.
The table can come here……..
No, near the window……..
My back can be to the window as I face the corridor……….
Or I can have my back to the wall…………..
He imagined the layout of the room.
There was a knock on the door as Alice inquired whether Takeo was in there.
Unexpectedly quite some time had passed.
“I’m here. How was your bath?”
“It was great.”
Alice was all smiles.
“Then let’s dry your hair.”
Alice and Takeo returned back to the bedroom.
Takeo dried her hair lightly just like the previous night.
“Sir Takeo, what were you doing in the study?”
“I was thinking about the placement of the table and the furniture.”
“With a room that size, it’s normal to have a table at the far end and a bookshelf at the wall.”
But you were thinking of something different right?”
“I was thinking of having my back to the wall in the center of the room and have a table there. I was also thinking of having a bookshelf at the window at the back. I was also thinking about having a 3 seater sofa and a small table in front of the other table?…………. Something like that.”
“?………………..Since the room is rectangular, it will be a pain to go all the way to the bookshelf at the back right?”
What if I split the room into two?
A bookshelf at the far end near the bedroom. Rifles and other small stuff near the corridor and a table and sofa in the center.
But it might be difficult to move around.
Having a table at the back facing the corridor and a bookshelf a the wall and a small table and sofa in front of the other table will be good.”
“Ah? But we haven’t bought a sofa?”
“Yes. I thought that the room would be full, with just the table and bookshelf………….so I didn’t buy it.
I’ll check it out tomorrow once we have the furniture.
If there is space to place it then we can go and check out the sofa, small table, and chair.”
“Well, there is no hurry.”
“That’s right. We’ll check the atmosphere once we have the furniture first.
I’ll head to the bath now.”
Takeo went to the baths.
“Yes, take your time~.”
Alice sent him off.
“Would it be possible to horseback riding, rifle practice, and collect the furniture tomorrow?”
Alice thought as she turned to her side.
Takeo returned to the room after his bath.
He knocked on the door but there was no answer so quietly slipped inside thinking that she was asleep………….
“She’s sleeping without a blanket on……..”
He sighed at the condition in which Alice was sleeping.
“Aren’t you suffering?”
He straightforwardly said.
She would catch a cold if she slept like this. He flipped the blanket and turned her over.
“She didn’t even wake up…………..must be in deep sleep.”
Takeo moved her a little. She was in deep sleep.
Watching her sleeping face he smiled and put the blanket on her.
Alice let out a weird sound and Takeo moved into the blanket as well smiling at her.
He fell asleep too.
