World Teacher – Other World Style Education & Agent Chapter 78
When I was a child, she was the female elf that I met when I first entered the Adload Continent.
Since she was an elf. which was a rare race, she was poisoned by adventurers and I helped her when she was being kidnapped.
Elves were prideful and tend to look down on others, but Fia was a friendly woman and she even thought herself as an oddball.
Although it was only one day with her, there were parts of me that made her attracted. As we went our own way, she said that she wanted to become my lover when I grew up… No, she wanted to become a mistress.
I didn't really want her to become a mistress, and we became friends. We promised to meet each other again and then we separated.
Fia couldn't leave her hometown for ten years because of her hometown's rule, so I collectively planned to go to her place, but…
"I missed you, Sirius!" (??)
The appearance of Fia who I met again after such a long time hadn't changed from that time.
With emerald green long hair flowing, she had a beautiful face like a model. She was completely a beautiful Onee-chan since I was a child at that time, but it was a considerable destructive power to the present me who had become a young man.
Speaking something that had changed, I had grow a bit taller, so I guess she could fit into my chest?
I was glad to be embraced by such an attractive elf, but I was puzzled at the same time.
"Uwaah…what an awesome beauty…" (Kachia)
"Elf? That's unusual…" (Cecil)
The disciples were surprised just like me. However, because of Kachia's and Cecil's voices, who were the employees of the inn, I sorted my thought to the present situation.
Although it was an inn with few guests, I couldn't just calm myself and having a talk in front of the counter.
"Cecil-san, change one of the double rooms to a triple room! And here's the lodging charge and hush money for this person!" (Sirius)
I put a piece of gold coin on Cecil's hand. I pulled her away from me and I carried her with my arm.
"Hehe, how nostalgic. You were small and unbalanced in the past, but now, it's a splendid Oujo-sama and Ohime-sama." (Fia)
"If you understand that, don't bite your tongue, alright." (Sirius)
With only Hokuto, I started running towards my room while carrying Fia.
And as Hokuto opened the door, I went into the room and had Fia sit on the bed.
"Oh, how aggressive you are after this sudden reunion. I don't hate it when you ask for it." (Fia)
"I'm not going to do anything. I just want to calm down and have a talk." (Sirius)
"I don't mind. Were those two, by any chance, your wife? I wonder if it was bad to suddenly hug you?" (Fia)
"Although I was surprised, Fia didn't do anything bad, and those two are not my wives. It will be alright if I properly explain later, but first, let's exchange information." (Sirius)
"Yeah. I was too excited when meeting Sirius. Sorry for being noisy." (Fia)
"There's no such thing. More importantly, it's been a while, Fia. I wanted to see you too." (Sirius)
"Hehe… although I said it earlier, I also wanted to see you too." (Fia)
She entered the room and took off the mantle, but underneath the mantle was the same leather breastplate that she had when we met before, and she had a skirt with a slit with navel exposed.
In other words, there were many exposures of her skin, and I was hugged by her again with a smile. I was happy as a man, but I wanted you to forgive me for this moment.
I managed to calm her who was a bit excited and pulled her off me, I wanted to ask something from that point.
"So, why are you here? It hasn't been ten years yet, and you are not supposed to go out from forest, right?" (Sirius)
It was a slight detail, but it was nearly half a year until the decade from when we were separated. It wasn't possible unless there was time distortion, but… her answer was pretty bad.
"I went out." (Fia)
"I said, I went out. I wanted to see you, so… I broke the law." (Fia)
Fia seemed to feel guilty of breaking the law since she was scratching her head with a bitter smile. On the other hand, I felt something wrong with her attitude.
I didn't know how strict the rules of elves were, but I didn't think that she would break it because of that reason. Thinking that… she wanted to see me, it was dubious.
"I am happy that you wanted to see me, but what's the other reason?" (Sirius)
"Aah… you got that, huh? But you know, it is true that I really wanted to see you." (Fia)
"I'm happy for that. However, if you are going with me from now, I want you to stop hiding secrets. Please tell me." (Sirius)
"I was made to go for arranged matchmaking." (Fia) (TLN: Omiai)
After we separated, she returned to her hometown. She spent her time peacefully since she met her family again.
She spent her days practicing and improving on how to fly in the sky which I taught her. It seemed that she kept waiting for ten years because of that rule.
"A decade is not a big deal if you're an elf, but the days before I could met Sirius felt were long. And six months ago, my dad was…" (Fia)
She was suddenly called by her father, and it was said that she had to go for arranged matchmaking.
The other party seemed to be an Elder Elf who was also the founder of the elves, and he accidentally found Fia while he was walking in the forest.
This was my first time listening about Elder Eles, but according to Fia's explanation, it was a tribe who live deeper in the forest compared to Fia's hometown, and… apparently it was a tribe who rarely went out of the forest.
"I refused because there is Sirius, but elves basically can't go against the Elder Elves. I met him, but…" (Fia)
They were stronger than the elves, so the elves couldn't go against them. In other words, if we said it ourselves, it was like a royalty and a commoner, so marrying an Elder Elf was like marrying a royalty.
It sounded good if I didn't considering her feeling, but Fia was grumping and holding a fist.
"He was arrogant and selfish! With his overbearing manner, he came to us and wanted to make me as one of his wives… he was proud of himself and saw me nothing but as a tool." (Fia)
"That's unpleasant. Was he so proud with power?" (Sirius)
"The Elder Elves hold great strength. If I go all out with the spirits, I can somehow manage only one of them." (Fia)
"With Fia's full power… is it? That is a considerable strength." (Sirius)
Apparently, there were nearly hundred people with same level to Fia who could use wind spirit spells. Although their number was small, it was a suicide to defy the Elder Elves who were more familiar with forest than the Elves.
Fia's father was reluctant because she didn't like it, but he couldn't go against Elder Elves. But, Fia didn't have such a personality to stay put.
"So, I ran away. Hmm, should I say that I ran away? Although I said it, I made a preparation." (Fia)
Since the Elder Elves didn't come out of the forest, of course, she must went back from there to the depths of the forest. And the night before heading to the depths of the forest, there was a letter and traveling preparation were placed in Fia's room who was trying to escape.
"I wrote that they should treat me as a criminal who broke the law. Since his pride is so high, he absolutely won't touch a criminal, he probably would give up." (Fia)
"Criminal… is Fia fine with that? And is your family going to be fine?" (Sirius)
"The criminal will be banished for one hundred years, but there will be no problem if it is a hundred years or so. Besides, I think my family is fine. To behave recklessly for a person like me, even if the Elder Elf looked down on us, it's just a matter of disrespect." (Fia)
A hundred years huh… as expected of elves who lived long.
And since the Elder Elves recognized the Elves as a gatekeeper for their own residence, they would not going to handle it seriously.
That was something to be worried later, but the person, who should mind the most, was cheerfully laughing. I met Fia again, but the thing about going to the Elf forest hadn't changed.
"Is that so? Anyway, I'm glad that Fia is alright." (Sirius)
"Yeah, I'm not defiled, you know. That's why, I will be glad if you soil it." (Fia)
Since I was about to be embraced again, I held Fia's face with my hand and stopped her. Since her opponent wasn't serious, she immediately gave up and sat on the bad.
"Is my talk about this much? Next is Sirius, but why that wolf is here?" (Fia)
"This is my partner, Hokuto. He is a reliable fellow who properly can understand people's word." (Sirius)
"Wow… he's smart. But if he is Sirius-sama's partner, this much is probably normal. My name is Fia, nice to meet you, Hokuto." (Fia)
Fia seemed having fun while stroking Hokuto's head. And Hokuto also might recognized that Fia wasn't an enemy since he comfortably closed while being brushed.
Well then, the relationship with Hokuto was good, but the problem was the disciples. I quietly approached the door to the hallway and vigorously opened it up.
Of course the ones who flooding into the room were my disciples.
When I was wondering why they didn't came in even until quite a time lapsed, those three were altogether listening in front of the door. It wasn't that I didn't understand their feelings, but I thought that they didn't do it secretly since I was a family member of my disciples.
I had a forced smile, but a sigh leaked out to the disciples who looked up at me with investigative eyes.
"I'll introduce them, Fia. These children are my disciples." (Sirius)
Since everyone was in the room, we first decided to introduce the disciples to Fia.
As soon as I sat on the bed, Emilia and Reese sat on both sides of me, they embraced my arms as if to say that it was theirs. However, it was probably impossible for Reese, her face was red. By the way, Fia and Reus were sitting opposite to me.
"Nice to meet you. I am Emilia, Sirius-sama's disciple." (Emilia)
"I am Reese, Sirius-san's disciple." (Reese)
"I… am… Reus." (Reus)
Emilia was smiling, but she had a terribly overpowering smile to the other side. It was a technique used by my Kaa-san, Erina, but Reus, who frequently receiving it, was scared.
I thought that she was completely like a mother-in-law, but Fia was laughing without feeling intimidated by Emilia's intimidation.
"Hehe, nice to meet you. I am Shimifia. Even if you don't warn me that much, I won't take your lover.” (Fia)
"I am Sirius-sama's disciple. The lover here is Reese." (Emilia)
"Eh!? Y-yes. I am his… lover." (Reese)
I didn't think there were any followers who hugged their master's arms like lovers. I feel somewhat incoherent, but Emilia was probably testing out Fia.
In the past, when Erina knew about my abnormal strength, she said that there would be people who tried to exploit it appear. Because of that, when I talked about the person who I got acquainted with, she would pursue the matter more than necessary whether the other party was really reliable or not.
Emilia was the successor who took over the intention of Erina. Perhaps, she was trying to know the real intention by shaking Fia's feelings. Actually, she could be jealous though.
"It is as what you expected. If it's Sirius, I thought that it wouldn't be weird if he had one or two lovers." (Fia)
"That's not the only reason, you know." (Sirius)
"Because it's Aniki, right?" (Reus)
I felt enough if the disciples could healthily grow up, but when I noticed, this was the situation. However, I didn't regret it.
When Reus started to regain his usual tone, Emilia slightly pulled my arm. I didn't mind it, but the arms were hitting their chests.
"Sirius-sama. Is Shimifia-san going to accompany our trip from now on?" (Emilia)
"Aah, she will become our companion. Sorry, I decided that on my own." (Sirius)
"No, if that is Sirius-sama's decision, we have no reason to oppose it." (Emilia)
"Me too. It's amazing for an elf to become our companion." (Reese)
"Because it's Aniki, right!?" (Reus)
Emilia was still a bit wary, but I felt relieved that everyone wasn't objecting.
In order to make Fia, who had become our companion, knew about our things, I talked about the encounter of the disciples.
After parting with Fia, I met the siblings and made them as disciples. And then, I went to the school and roughly explained how Reese became my disciple. As a precaution, I didn't say that Reese was a royalty and she could see spirits.
I was interposed midway and supplemented by the disciples, but they were praising me as usual.
While continuing to explain like this, Fia kept watching us with gentle eyes.
"Everyone loves Sirius, isn't it?" (Fia)
"Of course! He is the one that I will serve throughout my life." (Emilia)
"Because it's Aniki, right!?" (Reus)
"It will be rude for me to you guys if I am not going to be serious. I am going to use magic from now on, but it's not for offensive, so you don't have to worry. Wind… please." (Fia)
And when Fia muttered words as if singing, the surrounding air changed.
The disciples were confused, but they immediately understood what she did. Talking about the past, it was a technique that I taught for fun.
"It's alright. It was a boundary of wind to prevent voices from leaking. Fia, for you to use this…" (Sirius)
“It seems fine if it's with your companion whom you trust, so that is a proof of trust since I am a newcomer. As you can see, my attribute is wind. And I… can see spirits." (Fia)
One who could see spirit… was someone who could use spirit spells and who was destined to be powerful, so they kept hiding themselves until they died. However, since Fia explained it herself, it showed how earnest she was.
On a normal setting, it was a surprising scene of displaying strong determination, but the disciples merely nodded as if they got the point.
"…Eh? I intended to say that it was a momentous decision, but what's with the light response? Could that be Sirius…" (Fia)
"That's rude, I didn't say anything, you know." (Sirius)
"Is that so? Shimia is someone who can see spirits. Same as me…" (Reese)
"Eh!? You too?" (Fia)
"Yes. I can see water spirits." (Reese)
Fia stood up while being surprised at Reese's confession, she grabbed up Reese's hands and she was smiling. I probably couldn't understand. Perhaps, it was the loneliness that those who could see spirits would feel.
"It is the first time for me to meet someone who can see spirits. Somehow… I am very happy." (Fia)
"Sirius-san said that he met a person who could see spirits, so that was you, isn't it? Uhmm, actually I wanted to say thank you." (Reese)
"I don't really understand why, but I accept your gratitude. And it is fine to call me Fia. Everyone else also please call me that." (Fia)
In the past, when I confirmed that Reese also could see spirits, I told her about the way to handle spirits which I heard from Fia. That was the impetus on how she became able to handle spirits well, maybe the gratitude was because of that?
Fia was finally settled down after getting excited for a short while. And then, the spell to prevent voices leakage was dispelled when there was a noise of knocking on the door.
"…Who is it?" (Sirius)
"It's me. Kachia. I came to tell you that you can eat anytime you want." (Kachia)
"Understood. We'll be going soon." (Sirius)
When I confirmed that the sound of Kachia's footsteps faded, Reus' stomach made a sound. Was it such a time already?
We mostly had explained about our things to each other. Afterwards, should we eat together and be good friends? While thinking so, I headed out with everyone else but then I noticed Fia's attire.
"Fia, are you fine without mantle?" (Sirius)
"It's alright since this inn has few customers. Oh… yeah. I have a favor to ask of you, Sirius." (Fia)
"… I have a bad feeling, but if it's just about listening, I will listen, alright?" (Sirius)
"There are things attached on Emilia's and Reus' neck, isn't it? I want that too." (Fia)
Attached on the neck… Was it the chokers? I made an ornament drawn with the magic formation of [Call], but I didn't expect that she would request a choker.
This was my personal opinion, but I felt that bracelet or ring look better on Fia rather than a choker. Emilia and Reese probably had similar opinion as they were tilting their necks at Fia's words.
"It's not really a big deal but why did you ask that?" (Sirius)
"Look, if it's the choker, I won't see as nothing but a slave, right? In that case, troubles may be reduced." (Fia)
"Oi oi, you want to be seen as a slave?" (Sirius)
It was certainly true that the possibility of a slave being targeted was less than as an elf adventurer.
But, you would be seen as a slave, you know? This person wanted it… was it because of them?
In the case of the siblings, it was rather special. They didn't mind even if they were treated as slaves. Rather, the sister was pleased with slave treatment.
Although Fia would be seen as a slave, she didn't look bothered as if she didn't care about it.
"I don't mind being seeing like that by anyone. Besides, I don't think it's bad to be a slave of love?" (Fia)
"I do mind!" (Emilia)
"Aah, sorry, Emilia. If the lover position is filled… I guess I'll be the mistress?" (Fia)
"I am also Sirius-sama's mistress!" (Emilia)
"Yeah, yeah, calm down a bit." (Sirius)
Since things almost get out of hands, I stroked her head and she instantly calmed down. Emilia swung her tail and I separated from her since she rubbed her cheek against my arm, so let me respond to Fia's request.
"You want a choker, right? Please wait for a while." (Sirius)
"I'm looking forward to it. By the way, if it's about that equipment, I can talk with you anywhere, correct?" (Fia)
"There is something I want to say. You can't used it frequently, you know. Besides, since it's troublesome if you can't use it during emergency, I want you to stop using it as a hobby." (Sirius)
"Yeah, that's too bad. I thought that I could secretly invite you with that…" (Fia)
"There are also instances such as demand on the dinner menu and between meal snacks." (Sirius)
The criminals, the siblings and the gluttonous, were averting their eyes.
Besides, in the case of Fia, rather than do it secretly, I thought that she would say it out loud. In the past, she mentioned that her principle was not to forget the favor. But I was relieved that she hadn't change at all.
"Hey, let's continue the conversation while having the meal, alright? Let's go." (Sirius)
And then, I tried to go to the hallway, but Emilia held my hand and I was unable to move. When I looked at her, she was looking at me with a serious expression.
"Sirius-sama, this may seems rude but I have a request. We would like to have conversation only with Fia." (Emilia)
"Hmm… if Fia is fine with it, sure." (Sirius)
Even if there was such order from me as the leader and as the master, there was still a part of Fia, who suddenly become our companion, where they couldn't consent. Since I expected that to happen, I had no reason to refuse her.
Rather than having a relationship where each person holding back their feelings, I hoped that they earnestly collided and the relationship became a clear relationship. Even if they were fighting each other as a result.
Either way, Fia responded but she nodded without breaking a smile.
"I don't mind. Rather, I was thinking to invite them instead, so it's better this way." (Fia)
"Thank you very much. Well then, let's do that sometime after the meals." (Emilia)
"No, how about you do it now? Since Reus and I will eat outside, you three should do it while having meals here." (Sirius)
Reus seemed to have no complaint about Fia joining us, so it was probably better to have a conversation between female team only.
Emilia left my arm when I gave the permission, and she deeply bowed.
"Sirius-sama, thank you very much." (Emilia)
"Don't worry about it. It is fine if you want to have a fight, but don't destroy the inn, alright? Hokuto, I'm sorry but I leave those girls to you." (Sirius)
Just to be sure, I asked Hokuto to be the bodyguard. Even if they were attacked by robbers, I would be relieved since if it was with Hokuto, he could make best judgement.
"You don't have to worry. I will gain their trust before the day ends." (Fia)
"I won't go easy though." (Emilia)
"That's fine. I'll show you how serious I am." (Fia)
"Uhmm… if there is anything, I will tell you immediately." (Reese)
Reese was also there, and I couldn't feel any hostility between the two, it's going to be alright… I think.
While having slightly uneasy feeling, the female team went ahead. And then, Reus and I headed to the hallway, and we went outside after speaking at the counter.
Maybe it was because of the fighting festival, the town in the evening, where people gathered, was crowded.
We found a place to have a meal. We sat on a vacant seat and had the place took the order while Reus grumbled with a smile.
"You know what, it is unusual for me to eat with Aniki only." (Reus)
"When you said that, I guess it's true. Well, occasionally it is a good thing between men, isn't it?" (Sirius)
"Hehe, that is surely true." (Reus)
I wasn't sure with what he was so happy about, but Reus was chewing the meals ordered while smiling.
Hmm, since there was no Emilia who might twist Reus' opinion, let's ask him a bit about Fia.
"You see, Reus. What do you think about Fia?" (Sirius)
"Hmm? I think she is a beautiful person. As expected of an el-.. muguu-!" (Reus)
As he was about to say the name of the tribe, I forcibly stuffed him with a meat to make him shut up. There were many peoples who wanted elves, so I didn't want him to say it during conversation. Regardless of within the inn, there were many people around here in particular.
Reus seemed to notice while chewing the meat stuffed. He, then, swallowed the meat after thinking for a while.
"Uhmm… I somehow have a feeling that she is a good person. She is not up to Aniki's level, but I think she is reliable like Nee-chan, and I like her." (Reus)
"You like her… huh? As expected, you are also like a man who weak against beautiful woman. I thought that you were not interested in women, but you finally…" (Sirius)
"It's not like that. I like her as a companion, you know. If I am allowed to do this, I think that I will call her Fia-ane. Fia-ane, in the first place, is Aniki's woman, right?" (Reus)
"I guess that is why, huh? So… are you fine with this? While having your sister as a lover, you don't mind if Reese and Fia are in it altogether?" (Sirius)
"I don't have any complaint about Aniki who made Nee-chan to achieve such happiness. Besides, it is natural for Reese-ane and Fia-ane to like you." (Reus)
Maybe it was because of the polygamy being accepted for those who have power in this world, he was tilting his head trying to find what was the problem with that.
"I am happy if Nee-chan is happy. Moreover, I think that it is really amazing if Aniki can make Reese-ane, who I think as my family, to be happy." (Reus)
"That's a premature saying. I haven't even married yet, and I don't know what will happen from now on, you know?" (Sirius)
"If it is Aniki, we will support you, so you don't have to worry. For me, Aniki is my family, my Sensei and my aim. I am really glad that Aniki picked me up. I'll follow you for the rest of my life!" (Reus)
Reus said it with a dazzling smile while displaying his teeth. It was a bit embarrassing when he directly expressed his gratitude.
I leisurely spend time between men while giving Reus my own share of meat.
— Reese —
Sirius-san and Reus had went,out so what's left in the room were ladies.
Although it couldn't be helped, Emilia seemed to hate herself for driving Sirius-san away.
Before I tried to encourage her, Fia tapped Emilia's shoulder with a smile.
"Hey, don't worry about it. Let's have a meal. Aren't you hungry?" (Fia)
"Let's go. I am hungry too." (Fia)
And then, led by Fia-san, we headed to the bar which was also the dining hall of the inn.
While walking through the hallway, I look at her walking figure and she was casually talk with Hokuto. I felt that I once again learned how amazing Fia-san was.
When I looked at Emilia who was smiling, she did it while hurling an intimidating air.
When we was in school, Sirius-san, who became famous after fighting the headmaster, suddenly had more opportunities to be approached by women.
Ane-sama declared that she wanted to make him as subordinate, but nobles also send their daughter and granddaughter to secure his strength in order to take him in.
Of course, there were also some people who like him normally, but everyone who had guilty feelings were all running away when she put up that smile. At first, it looked like a smile from a splendid attendant, but those who felt guilt were somehow unable to directly look at the smile. It was said that they had seen a [Silverion's Smile].
In other words, that smile was some sort of rite of passage; to see whether they really like Sirius-san or not.
By no means, it wasn't about Sirius-san was getting taken away, or because she was jealous… I think.
Having said that, it seemed Fia-san had gone through the rite of passage by Emilia, wasn't it?
Although they hadn't meet each other, I think the figure of her happily talking to Hokuto looked similar to my Ane-sama. Fia-san, who was an elf and a senior in spirit spells, wasn't really a timid person.
We had to go through to the reception lobby in order to go to the bar. Currently, it wasn't Cecil at the counter, but a big man.
Even though Sirius-san brought her on his own, Fia-san remembered that she wasn't accepted yet, and then, she approached the counter.
"I'm sorry, but I'll be staying here tonight…" (Fia)
"I have heard it." (??)
As he said so and as we looked at the inn register, Fia-san's name was already written and the business with the counter was already completed. Apparently, Sirius-san did it before he went out.
The man standing at the counter looked rough, but he was looking at us with a gentle eyes.
"I don't care who the customers are. I just want you to take a good rest." (??)
"Where is Cecil-san?" (Reese)
"My wife is preparing meals at the bar. Since it is our prideful dishes, please don't hold back when eating it." (??)
This person was Cecil-san's husband.
More importantly, I was looking forward to cooking.
When we arrived at the bar on the first floor of the inn, there were few guests and the vacant seats stood out. And as we entered the bar, all eyes were simultaneously focusing on us. Since there was an Elf, Fia, and Hokuto, it might not be unreasonable.
I was thinking whether Hokuto would be stopped, but it seemed that Sirius-san was talking in advance with the receptionist, so we were able to enter without problems.
When we worried about where to sit, Kachia-chan, who was helping as a waiter, noticed us. She came in front of us with a lovely smile, but she was wondering because Sirius-san and Reus weren't here.
"Eh.. where are the Onii-chans?" (Kachia)
"They went out because they had some business. We are the only ones who will eat today, but I wonder if there is a place where we can slowly speak somewhere?" (Fia)
Fia-san briefly explained, and then, Kachia-chan recommended the seating at the corner of the wall. It couldn't be seen from the entrance, and it seemed to be just right as it was a bit further away from other seats.
Other guests… especially a man with fat belly who was trying to approach us, he was returning to his original position at the moment when Hokuto turned his face. As expected of Sirius-san's partner.
Emilia sat next to me while Fia-san sat on the opposite side. And Hokuto was sitting nearby to protect us.
After a while, Kachia-chan came to take the order, so we ordered while looking on the menu.
"I would like to have wine… I wonder if you two drink wine?" (Fia)
"I'll have fruit juice." (Emilia)
"I'll also have fruit juice, please." (Reese)
Emilia slowly lowered her head when we faced each other again after asking some other dishes.
"I am sorry to suddenly ask for such an occasion." (Emilia)
"I don't really mind. We haven't met each other yet, so I think that it is better for us to clearly express our intention. Also, those words were intense, you know." (Fia)
"Sorry, please do that from now on." (Emilia)
I thought that Emilia's tone was intense because she hadn't fully accepting Fia-san yet.
In the first place, if Sirius-san, who was the master, accepted her, Emilia, who was the servant, couldn't refuse it. Nevertheless, Emilia wasn't easily trusting the other side.
Whether she might be against her Master or became a villain, she couldn't accept until she was sure that Sirius-san wouldn't be betrayed… that's what Emilia said in the past.
That was the intention handed by the teacher of her being as an attendant, Erina-san, and she decided to do it on her own.
Although she said that, I thought that Emilia was almost accepting Fia-san.
She would occasionally take other kind of actions, but whatever it was, she was fine with it because she would make fake expressions a lot more.
And then, we lifted cups when the dishes and drinks were carried and arranged on the table.
"Well then, shall we have a toast? So who's going to toast this?" (Fia)
"Let me do it then. As for meeting with Fia-san…" (Reese)
I lightly knocked the cup and drank it.
Fia-san drank the wine in one gulp, she seemed satisfied while breathing out lightly. At any rate… she was very sexy. I was about to say that each of her conduct were captivating, and she gave the feeling of an older woman even though she looked a little bit older than us. Are all elves like her?
In addition, Emilia also drank the fruit juice in one gulp. She placed the cup on the table slightly stronger and sharpened her eyes.
"Fia-san, what do you think of Sirius-sama?" (Emilia)
That was splendid as she said it straight to the point.
When I thought about it, she had lived longer than us, and it may be a bad choice to attack her from behind because it seemed that she could easily throw the children like us off.
And to Emilia's question, Fia responded without hesitation.
"I love him. It is enough to devote my life for him." (Fia)
"We-well, since when did you come to love Sirius-sama?" (Emilia)
What should I do… it wasn't only me, Emilia also was blushing because of Fia-san's words.
Emilia changed the direction of the question while being upset. The meaning was surely either she was judging by looking at Sirius-san's ability and fame, I think.
Fia-san was also a bit surprised at such inquiry, but she replied after she poured wine into the cup.
"At first, it was because his back of body… I guess? Didn't I mentioned about me being rescued by Sirius earlier?" (Fia)
"You were assaulted by uncivilized adventurers, right?" (Emilia)
"At that time, it wasn't just a chastity, but I was about to lose a lot of things. But, Sirius suddenly jumped out and stood to protect me… I was attracted to his back…" (Fia)
I understood that feeling. When I was in school, when we were attacked by the murderers in the labyrinth… I was attracted to Sirius-san who came to help.
I might have begun to recognize Sirius-san as a man since that time. And the deciding factor was when I got kidnapped.
"Although he was a child at that time, you know? I like children, but Sirius was somehow different." (Fia)
"Yeah! Sirius-sama is really like an adult, he knows everything and he watches over us!" (Emilia)
I also agreed that he was unusually like an adult.
In the beginning, I thought that he was like my father because I could see him nothing but a parent who look after Emilia and Reus.
Even though he had followers, he prepared delicious dishes every day, and I couldn't think of him as someone below me.
"I had traveled for about ten years until I met Sirius, but there was not even a person who could let me off. When the fact of me being an elf is known, I would be assaulted like a beast, so in order to avoid such trouble, I always run away. Compared to that, Sirius wanted to be friends because elves were uncommon… I was surprised in many ways." (Fia)
"That was like Sirius-sama. However, it probably can't be helped because of Fia-san's beautiful face." (Emilia)
"Hehe thanks. After that, I was taught about various things like how to fly in the sky and I noticed that I became attracted to him more and more." (Fia)
Next, she talked about flying practice, being carried in arms like a princess, and it seemed Emilia was getting envious. I was… envious too.
"Although it was only a day's encounter, I really fell in love. So, when Sirius grew up later, I promised to meet him no matter what kind of adult he would become, but I was surprised when I saw him. He has become a man more than what I expected." (Fia)
"It is too soon to be surprised! Sirius-sama's splendor is not only that!" (Emilia)
"Yes, I understand that very well. After all, he nonchalantly does his things, and he even left Hokuto to protect us." (Fia)
He didn't only left Hokuto for us, he paid for the lodging and the meals.
I heard this from Cecil-san, who was in the kitchen, that he paid extra since we ate a lot. It was a bit embarrassing but… I was glad that he understood us.
Fia once again drank the wine after she talked until that point. Her mood seemed good for another helping.
"In other words, I like people who are capable. That is why I was attracted to Sirius. Well then, next is your turn." (Fia)
"Alright. I will tell you… Sirius-sama's splendor!" (Emilia)
She wasn't really competing, but Emilia's counterattack began from here. I was also listening, and I was supplementing while eating.
"– and then, when I was about to be crushed by anxiety and despair, he hugged me and comforted me." (Emilia)
"Aah… you would be charmed for sure." (Fia)
Fia-san was consenting with Emilia's fervent speech while smiling. By no means she was trying to set it aside, but I thought that she merely want to know about her favorite person. She really liked Sirius-san, isn't she?
Aah… this chicken, it was tender and delicious.
"Sirius-sama didn't only rescued Fia-san in dangerous situation! We were also attacked in the past, and we were saved when we were driven into a corner! Although there were four enemies, with Sirius-sama alone who was so angry…" (Emilia)
"Yeah. Sirius-san was a bit scary at that time, but he was really amazing." (Reese)
"That's because you guys are very important to him. Isn't this getting better?" (Fia)
What are the spices used for this soup? Let's ask it later.
"And then, in order to let me getting revenge on my parent's enemy, he purposely pushed me aside. I was in despair at that time, but I thought about it and I did it. And… I finally received Sirius-sama's affection!" (Emilia)
…Eh? I felt that Emilia's tone had gone wrong.
She seemed becoming strangely bold.
"Emilia is already embraced, huh? I also want it soon, but… how about Reese?" (Fia)
"Eh!? That… I still…" (Reese)
"Yeah, that's right! Reese should received Sirius-sama's affection as soon as possible! He is a kind, so he will gently treat you!" (Emilia)
And then, Emilia drank the content of the cup.
When I was thinking that it was obviously strange, Fia-san had poured the content of the container she had into Emilia's cup.
That… was wine, isn't it?
"To tell the truth, since it is going to be my first time, that is good information. Really… he is gentle, isn't he?" (Fia)
"Let me tell you the joy of being a woman! He was not only gentle, but there were also times when he was intense. I got fainted with so much happiness!" (Emilia)
Although we were already old enough to drink, I had never drank alcohol yet. I was unlike Emilia, she didn't drink alcohol which could disrupt focus in order to take care Sirius-san.
That's why it was her first alcohol, but by no means Emilia would become like this when she drank…
"I will satisfy Sirius-sama next! For the sake of Sirius-shama, I will do my best with my fostered breasts and body…" (Emilia) (TLN: That -shama is not a typo)
"I want my part before that. I may not be able to win against Emilia on the breast part, but I am competing with longevity and skill." (Fia)
"I will not lose!" (Emilia)
Aah.. Emilia was getting out of hands since she was talking embarrassing things. The other guests were gone, but it was still embarrassing because Cecil-san was still here.
However, when I properly looked, Fia-san was using the spell used earlier, and it seemed that our voices hadn't leaked to the surroundings.
I thought that nonchalant attentiveness was wonderful, but I probably couldn't admire Fia easily since she was the cause of this situation.
Emilia's recklessness continued for a while and then, she fell asleep around the tenth cup.
There was a need of having skills to drink for the first time… and Fia-san, who was muttering, was already at the twentieth cup. She continued drinking without changing the pace.
"Nevertheless, she is a hardworking cute girl. I know well what makes Sirius important." (Fia)
"Yeah, I like him too. By the way… Is Fia-san going to be alright if you drink that much?" (Reese)
"It is already since I can handle alcohol. I was really happy today, and since Emilia's stories were fun, I can keep going with the wine." (Fia)
Instead of pouring for another helping, Fia-san's expression became a bit serious and she turned her eyes to me.
"I wish that I could be friends with Emilia, but what do you think about it?" (Fia)
"I think it is fine. Emilia wanted to know whether you were really thinking about Sirius-san." (Reese)
"Is it? That's great. Then, how about you, Reese? I haven't really heard about your true feelings." (Fia)
"I agree that Fia will become our companion. I feel the same, but I think it will be more fun if there is Fia-san." (Reese)
Our center of focus, Sirius-san, was someone we relied upon, and since I knew that she was a good person from the conversation, I had no reason to refuse her.
Besides, above all…
"Besides… we both like the same person. That's why I think that we surely can get along." (Reese)
"Hehe… as expected of Sirius' lover. But, I'd like to ask you a bit, didn't you want to monopolize Sirius?" (Fia)
"No… is not something that I can say, because I also like Emilia. That's why, if Fia also become the same like us…" (Reese)
"…Kuhh! What's with this cuteness!" (Fia)
Fia-san was somehow started to be in agony.
Fia-san continued to be like that for a while. When she finally brought back, she drank wine and had a smile on whole of her face.
"Haa… I am really looking forward to the days from tomorrow. With Sirius and you guys too." (Fia)
"Me too. Aah, anyway, have you ever eaten confection called cakes? Sirius-san made it and it is a popular confection. It's really delicious." (Reese)
"Really? I wonder if I should ask him tomorrow. By the way… Reese hasn't given Sirius your first time, right?" (Fia)
She suddenly changed the topic, and because of that, I unintentionally blew out the water juice in my mouth.
While thinking about how to answer, I eventually nodded frankly. Aah… my face is hot.
"Yeah, I like honest children. Well, today…" (Fia)
"Eh? You haven't finished yet?" (Sirius)
When Fia-san opened her mouth with a serious face, Sirius-san and Reus had returned and came in front of us.
"Aah,,, Sirius-shama…" (Emilia)
"Hmm… what? Did you drink?" (Sirius)
"Yesss… For Sirius-shama…" (Emilia)
Was she already on her instinct? Emilia suddenly got up, and jumped into Sirius-san's bosom who was approaching.
Sirius-san slightly caressed her head but he did it with eyes like a parent. Emilia, then, started sleeping again, so Sirius-san slowly held her.
"I'm sorry, Sirius. I tried to make her drink a little, but it seemed she drank it more than expected." (Fia)
"I'm not going to say it is bad, but do it in moderation. Well, I'll bring Emilia to the room. Both of you, wrap it soon." (Sirius)
"Got it. Aah, before that, can I borrow Reus-kun for a bit? I have something to talk." (Fia)
"Ask Reus then. I'm going to excuse myself." (Sirius)
"Yes, please take care of Emilia." (Reese)
Emilia was carried and Sirius-san returned to our room.
When Reus sat, Fia once again briefly introduce herself.
"Say, Fia-san is Anikia's woman, isn't it? So, will it be alright if I call you Fia-ane?" (Reus)
"No problem at all. Alright, I will call you Reus. There are some snacks remained, do you want it?
"Ouu! Thanks, Fia-ane!" (Reus)
There was also about Reus' natural airhead, but he surely adapt very fast as I expected.
While admiring the conversation between those two, Fia-san was smiling and stroking Reus' head.
"Say Reus, will you sleep in our room today?" (Fia)
"I don't mind, but since it is a triple room, the beds are not enough, right? Well, I can sleep even on the floor." (Reus)
"It's alright. Today, Reese will sleep in Sirius' room, so the bed is available. You can properly rest." (Fia)
"Is that so? Alright then." (Reus)
What… is that alright?
Me in Sirius-san's room… eh?
"He probably still embracing Emilia, so you should go after a while. But I don't think he will have it when Emilia is in that condition." (Fia)
"Well, me going to Sirius-san's room… for what?" (Reese)
"Do that. It's fine. Didn't Emilia said that he is gentle? Sirius seems to be waiting, the rest is just your courage." (Fia)
Somehow, the discussion was progressing on its own.
I was starting to get confused, but I saw Reus picking the remaining dishes.
"Re-Reus? You don't like it if you are not together with Sirius-san in the room, right?
"I don't like it, but if it is Reese-ane, I don't mind at all. Yup, it is because Nee-chan became happy. Reese-ane too, please be happy!" (Reus)
"Ah… Aah… " (Reese)
Reus seems to fully understand.
With a smile on his whole face… his eyes were radiating the conviction for my happiness.
Well, it's not wrong, but… auuu…
And then, when I noticed, I came in front of Sirius-san's room.
I had repeatedly reaching and returning to the door many times, and I was still hesitating.
I came here because of Fia-san's words and it kept remaining inside my head.
[I will 'attack' starting from tomorrow, so I will hand him over to Reese today. Don't waste your chance, alright?] (Fia)
She finally met him again after ten years. The truth was that Fia-san really wanted to go ahead, but… she withdrew for my sake.
Emilia always pushed me because I was timid, but today, Fia-san pushed me.
When Fia-san talked about her true feelings for Sirius-san, I was overwhelmed with the depth of that feelings.
But… I also didn't like to lose against Fia-san because I liked Sirius-san too.
As I carried myself, my chest started beating like when I was under that moonlight, and it kept going on…
That person said that he would accept me, so there was no need to be afraid.
The rest… was just my courage.
I made up my mind and knocked the door.
"Hmmm… is that you, Reese? What is it?" (Sirius)
"Sirius-san. Today… together…" (Fia)
The night,,, at Elysion castle.
"Where are you going at such time, Your Majesty!? Oi, get more people! Anyway, stop him!" (Castle Guard)
"Guuoohhhhh! Let me go! I have to go!" (Cardeas)
"So, where are you going!?" (Castle Guard)
"I don't know! But, I have a feeling that I should gooooo–!" (Cardeas)
"Please throw sleeping powder. Huhu…" (Lifell)
"Sounds good, Lifell-sama." (Castle Guard)
"Yeah. I don't really understand, but… I feel like praising someone." (Lifell)
Some excerpts of conversations between men.
"Although my Tou-chan had Kaa-chan only, an excellent male will be asked many times before increasing the number of females. That's why Aniki is not weird." (Reus)
"It's not that I don't understand about continuing the family, but from you did you hear it?" (Sirius)
"When I was in school, I was thought that while walking alone in the town. It was a person who wore clothes close to naked." (Reus)
"… Were you standing in the back alley?" (Sirius)
"Yeah. I was trying to take a shortcut for a bit, but I was told not to take a break. I was a bit hungry, so they told me that they would treat me, so I entered the store." (Reus)
"… Please continue." (Sirius)
"It's not up to Aniki's degree, but they gave me some delicious food. They were somehow saying something about blue fruits and licking their lips. I was told to go to a room after finished eating, but since it was late, I went home." (Reus)
"You… that is prostitute, you know. You said they were too close, didn't you?" (Sirius)
"Eh? They are not prostitute Aniki. Even though they were with women's clothes and hair, they were men." (Reus)
Later, it went without saying that he was reeducated by Sirius.
