Chapter 48: Still Filling Up
Volume 1 — The Temporary Snow Country Life of the Northern Nobleman and the Raptor Wife
“Ritzhard, wake up.”
“Oi, wake up!”
Morning. Sieg shook me intensely and woke me up. No, I was still half-asleep.
“S-Sieg, shake me a bit softer~”
Meanwhile, I was getting shaken very violently.
“I’ll be up soon~……, Rather, I thought I would be awake before you came back from your stroll~”
“It’s already well past that!”
When I squinted my eyes open, I saw two soft mounds drawing a nice curve at the corner of my sight.
Just in case, I reached out to check the softness, but just before I could touch it my wrist was grabbed harshly and returned to its original position.
“What are you doing from so early in the morning!”
“Well, they were there.”
While lying downwards on the bed, she helped me up. While naked.
Normally, I feel sleepy even after a long time, but seeing my wife’s sensuous figure, I was fully awake.
“Then get up already.”
When I came to my senses, I saw that it was already bright outside. I always woke up before sunrise, so that meant I did sleep in a lot today.
“Nn? Huh, did you also just wake up?”
“That’s why I’m here naked.”
“Right, yesterday, no, today? Well, anyway, we did get a little too excited at night.”
There was still some fire left in the fireplace. Because I added some more firewood when we boiled some water to wipe ourselves with hot medicinal water.
I slipped on my top which was lying haphazardly on the bed, and searched for my trousers.
“Sieg, please wear something. That’s poison to the eyes.”
I found my trousers and put them on. After that, I put a blanket on my wife who was sitting while hugging her knees.
“We didn’t have our morning greeting yet.”
I remembered that I had yet to greet her, so I greeted her energetically like usual.
Sieg frowned and narrowed her eyes at me.
She didn’t seem to like the usual greeting that I always had.
“Eh, it’s no good?”
“No, there’s not enough energy.”
Then what was the problem. I ended up asking her because I had no idea.
“……There’s the thing that we always did, right?”
Ah, the couple’s greeting.
“Sieg, sorry. Not right now.”
“I didn’t shave yet. It’s prickly.”
“I don’t see any beards thought?”
“It does grow though.”
When I said that, Sieg looked into my face and touched my chin.
“It’s not that bad to be bothered by……”
She was defenceless, and did not seem opposed to a kiss so I embraced her locked my lips on hers again.
The kiss gradually grew deeper and fanned us on to the next part.
*censored* <— Don’t mind it if you can see this, it’s just a page break.
……In the end, when we came out to the living room, it was already the afternoon, but thankfully both Ruruporon and Miruporon acted normal.
The two of us reflected that such a thing shouldn’t happen again.
We still have work to do today.
We brought the dogs and went into the forest which now had a thin layer of snow.
When I blew the whistle and ordered the dogs, they ran out energetically.
Sieg and I leaned against each other in the shade and waited for the dogs to find prey.
After a while, the sounds of dogs barking could be heard. Sieg and I split up and hunted prey.
The dogs chased two rabbits.
I shot the one at the front, and then Sieg shot the next one.
She hunted pure white polar rabbits.
“These are nice rabbits.”
“Maybe we should grill them on skewers.”
Still, they needed to be matured, so it will a few days later.
“Let’s finish up for today.”
When I looked at Sieg, she was slinging the gun over her shoulder while saying, “Alright.”
Inside the bag, there were pheasants and rabbits. When we return, the pheasant will be stored in the icehouse and the rabbit will be left at the hut with some ice on its bellies.
Since the prey we hunted few days ago was ready, I suggested that we have that for dinner today as we arrived home.
Like so, our hunting life in the snow country continued.
We spent the warm days joyfully, as we always did.
