It was Mira who first noticed the new product that had gone on sale that morning.

[Yuusuke-san, what is this paper bag? It seemed to have the image of a bird-like tool on it……]

She was holding a long, thin envelope-like piece of paper.

[For you to notice that, you have great eyes. This is my favorite item in my shop right now.]

Product name: Assembly Glider

Description: This is a hand-thrown airplane that can be easily assembled. With a propeller enchanted with Flight Magic, it flies to the place or person the sender has in mind. If you write a message on the wings, it can serve as a substitute for a letter.

Price: 300 rims

This is actually an extraordinary product.

It is one of the more expensive items sold at Dagashi Yahagi, but it’s much cheaper than a typical letter delivery.

This world already has an established postal system.

It’s mainly the Temples that play this role.

Priests go on a pilgrimage to various temples all over the world, and they deliver the letters on their way.

Their services cost about 500 to 3000 rims, and the further the distance, the more expensive it becomes, making them much more costly than an assembly glider.

Moreover, it takes a long time for the letters to reach the recipients.

There are even some instances where the letter never arrives. (This is actually quite often)

[This assembly glider is amazing. You just throw it in the air, thinking about the person you want to deliver the letter to, and it will surely reach the recipient.]

[Then, if I throw it while thinking about my mother, will it fly to her?]

[That’s right. The propeller takes a small amount of mana, but it isn’t much. The speed is also over 100kph, so it will reach your mother in no time.]

[That’s amazing…… but my mother can’t read. Even if this suddenly appears, she may not even realize that it’s a letter from me. Worst case scenario, she might get creeped out and burn it……]

The literacy rate in this world isn’t very high.

Mira looked very sad.

[Mira, aren’t you from the Royal Capital?]

[I came from a village called Arum, about three days away from here.]

Even though I’d been hanging out with her for more than half a year, I didn’t know that at all.

""

[I wonder how Mom was like now? I want to let her know that I’m well.]

Mira looked up at the ceiling of the dungeon, seemingly looking at the unseeable sky.

They did say how the sky is connected to one’s homeland.

[Isn’t there anyone in your village who can read?]

[The Chief and the Priest can read.]

[If so, just send out a glider thinking of that Village Chief. Wouldn’t it be alright if you write “This is a letter from Mira, please deliver it to Mom”?]

[I really can do something like that! Yuusuke-san, please give me an assembly glider.]

[Thank you for your patronage!]

The glider has a wingspan of 20cm.

Mira wrote her letter to her mother with a pen I had lent her.

[It’s done.]

[Okay, then throw the glider into the air while thinking of that Village Chief. Don’t worry, it will fly even from inside the dungeon.]

[Yes.]

Mira closed her eyes and thought pensively.

She was probably thinking about her home village and the Village Chief’s face.

Then, she opened her eyes and released the glider into the air.

As it left her hand, the propeller of the glider shone.

It must have absorbed Mira’s mana and activated the Flight Magic.

The glider made its way through people and objects, and quickly exited through the entrance of Yahagi Onsen.

[I’m sure it will reach your mother soon.]

[Right. Unnn…… That would be great……]

Mira said, looking slightly teary-eyed.



In the evening, Michelle returned from the deepest part of the dungeon.

She was also interested in the assembly glider.

[It’s another great product. I’m sure this would sell out quickly just like that time when the Mobile Force was just released.]

[That doesn’t seem to be the case though.]

The main reason seems to be that there aren’t many adventurers who can write.

If I were to write for them, would I be able to sell a little more?

If Baron Essel or someone higher up like him finds out about this, they might buy in bulk, so let’s just keep quiet about this.

[That’s right, I have a favor to ask you, Michelle?]

[What is it? Y- You want a lap pillow?]

I never said anything like that.

[That’s not it, I want you to send me a letter through an assembly glider. I wanted to see how it arrives.]

[A letter to Yuusuke huh……]

[I’ll also try sending one out.]

[Really!? Oh my, a love letter from Yuusuke……]

[I’m not sending a love letter. It’s just a normal letter. Don’t expect such a sweet letter. Sending something like that is embarrassing after all……]

Michelle looked a little disappointed, but she was willing to exchange letters, and we decided to fly gliders together in the evening.

As soon as I got home, I wrote a letter to Michelle on the wing of the glider.

Dear Michelle,

Thank you for making me a delicious dinner today again. As I told you before, the pumpkin soup was fantastic. I’ve never had a pumpkin dish as good as yours.

It’s going to be especially cold tonight, so sleep warm. See you in the dungeon tomorrow.

I’m not very good at putting my feelings into words, but thank you for being with me. This feels embarrassing to write, but I love you.

Yuusuke

Something like this, I guess?

Even back in my previous world, I had some difficulty with message exchanges.

In any case, I opened the window and threw the glider.

Under the stars, the blue light from the propeller traveled fast towards Michelle’s house.

Ten minutes later, I heard a knock at the window.

When I opened the curtains and shutters, I saw Michelle’s glider hovering still in the air.

I’m surprised that this glider could move like this.

I reached out and grabbed the wing, and the propeller stopped moving.

[Let’s see, what has Michelle written?]

Dear Yuusuke,

I love you I love you very much I love you to death I incredibly love you I will never part with you I love you so much that I feel short of breath

I want to see you immediately I want to use magic to make it morning I want to make the sun move I won’t let you go I want to be with you forever I want to touch you I want you to touch me I want Yuusuke I love you so much I’m going crazy…………

I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you I love you

The wings were densely packed with such tiny words that it somehow made my eyes hurt.
