After collecting the bedsheets and clothes from the guest rooms, Chloe washed them next to the water well this time.
From what the prince had seen in his inspection of orphanages, he is aware of how tedious the process of washing each and every single one of the clothes from washbasin, washboard down to the soap, as well as how rough are they to the hands. When he saw how lovely Chloe’s hands in the past, he had been convinced that he was just pushing the responsibility to someone else, but it appears that she had been using after-care creams for that.
With no such high-class items to help her this time around, the prince assumed that her hands must’ve been dry now after all the washing.
At any rate, Chloe who scooped up water from the water well were checking the quality.
“Not good, I guess. The barrier I can put up would not be able to reach the underground water after all. Although it would be alright to use it for cleaning and laundry, drink it, and you are done for… We need to get the sacred stones quickly.”
“How about the ones already used in cooking, lady? Are they safe?”
“I did not sense any mana in them, likely because the priest is purifying them before use.”
As the two were having such a conversation, Locke came from the back door carrying a hoe and basket with him.
“The mistress said that you are to work on the fields after putting up the laundry for drying. She asked me to guide you to the fields.”
“Is it okay to leave outside the barrier? Wouldn’t we get attacked by monsters?”
“We use magic items for traps to prevent that. But definitely avoid going alone.”
Locke led them, clearing the path as they descended a little from the mountain. Arriving at the place, they were given goggles to wear and were astonished after putting them on. The downward slope looked like it had nothing but a severe crowding of trees from the naked eye, and unless you use a magic item like the googles, you’ll go past them without noticing anything.
In there, they saw a small farming field. The food supplies of the lodging are all sourced here, along with the water well next to it. As Chloe inspected the water quality, she saw no problems with it.
“Looks like the sacred stone for the barrier of the field is fine. Now we only need to ask the Holy Church for the one to use on the lodging house.”
“Hey, are you by any chance, a priestess? You seem to know well about barriers and sacred stones.”
Chloe looked troubled for a moment due to Locke’s question. However, she decided to only tell him about the things that she can.
“Before Miss Momo appeared, I also undertook the saintess’ ascetic practices as a trainee. That’s why I can also use sacred power to a certain degree.”
“Is that the so. I also heard about all the fuss regarding Momo’s awakening, but I have no idea to what degree she awakened her powers.”
“Fufu… to the point that all these high-class young nobl
