I resumed [Story Mode] after storing the cold medicine I bought at the pharmacy in the dimensional storage.
“Wow, it’s too dark, I can’t see anything.”
As soon as I returned to my private room at Earl Galhart’s house, I found that this continent had entered midnight and it was pitch black outside and in my room.
I had no choice but to use the LED flashlight I bought at the hardware store to light up the room and get ready for bed.
When I peep around the house using app, I see that it was calm and peaceful, and as usual, whether day or night, the gate-keeper had no yawning, and the servants’ rooms are bright and cheerful, so maybe they don’t know I’ve slipped out.
It’s a relief for the time being.
But when I changed out the noble clothes that were given to me into villager’s clothes and hurriedly got into my bed, I fell something soft.
What is this ‘funyu-funyu” feeling?
It’s strangely warm.
Intrigued, I shined a flashlight on the blanket to confirm it.
There appeared a pair of round pupils and a long, shiny golden hair.
A small intruder with the sweet scent of a young girl was lurking in the bed.
And how did this happen?
“Mmmm! You there, stop attacking me with your light magic! It’s so bright!”
The girl complained loudly, giving me a hard time.
Wait, wait, this is my bed….
Who the hell are you, anyway?
“If you don’t stop now, I’m going to tell my Father!”
“Ah, well… ”
That made everything clear to me, I immediately turned the light of the flashlight to the ceiling.
Then the girl creeped out of the bed and suddenly clamped her tiny hands around my cheeks and turned my face forcefully to herself.
She seemed to be angry with me.
“Where did you go before? Okaa-sama said there was a strange child here today, so I came to play without telling Otou-sama and Okaa-sama, but you weren’t there! I almost fell asleep waiting for you.”
This young girl, who seems to be from a noble family, is the daughter of the Earl of Galhart.
I don’t know if she’s a tomboy by nature, but I’m guessing she overhearing the conversation at the family meeting-like about my treatment, and came to mess with me because she found it interesting.
But that’s not good, if this lady lurked in my room for a while, I might be suspected by her family of being a kidnapper.
Fortunately, she escaped her family’s gaze, and judging by how calm everyone in the house is, she’s still undetected as of now, but it’s only a matter of time.
I had to get her back as soon as possible.
I began to persuade her politely, so as not to hurt her feelings.
“My lady. It’s late at night, and I don’t think this is a good time to play. If it’s tomorrow, I have some time, so if you would like, you can keep company me at that time. You’re already sleepy, aren’t you?”
“No way! I’m stronger than I look. I’m not sleepy! I’m not sleepy at all!”
You didn’t even notice I was touching you until you were woken by the light of the flashlight, you were sleeping very well.
However, you said just now that you weren’t sleepy.
However, if I told her that, it would only make her even more upset, so I won’t say anything.
However, I couldn’t go on like this, so as a contingency, I decided to observe the young lady’s personality and atmosphere before attacking from another direction.
“Then let’s do it this way. I’m going to teach you tomorrow, how to cure my lady’s brother, Klein Galhart’s illness, in a special, really special way, so could my lady help out a little? For that, I must refresh myself and get a good night’s sleep.”
“Uh!? Will you heal Brother-sama’s illness?”
“Yes, that’s why I was invited to this Earl’s house.”
The earl’s daughter – whose name still unknown yet- seems to be interested, and she stares at me with her eyes as if she’s seen something strange, and starts thinking with her chin on her hand.
It seems that she was looking at my underage teenage body and pondering whether or not I was telling the truth.
“I see, I see. Then, just show me the proof.”
Crap, she’s being too pushy and showing her natural dumb side.
She’s still a child, so it can’t be helped, but the conclusion I came to after thinking about it is too absurd.
Showing proof that I can cure the illness means that I’m now required to demonstrate that I can cure the illness.
It’s a conclusion that completely disregards my opinion that it’ll be done tomorrow, even if it’s an unavoidable idea that doesn’t consider my position.
I don’t think she realized that she was being unreasonable.
“Proof, proof! You said you can cure my brother, I want see it with my own eyes!”
“No, but that can wait until tomorrow…”
“No! That’s what everyone who came to the Earl’s house said, but in the end, they can’t cure him! You can’t lie to me!”
The young girl’s snorting and heavy clutching of her small hand seemed to threaten as if to say, “What do you think, will you give up?”
I don’t think she’s going to let me go.
Now I’m in trouble… How can I get away with this?
“Nah, now that It has decided, let’s go see Brother-sama! Come with me.”
“Ah, wait a minute… Wait a minute…”
Without even giving me time to think, the young girl ran off with a flashlight in her right hand and my hand in her left.
It seems that she doesn’t care about our situation and no need to ask any questions, she just kept running through the mansion.
The blessing of misfortune was that the young girl seemed to be in the habit of sneaking out of sight of both parents on a regular basis, and seemed to be used to moving around without being seen.
Perfectly mastering places and passageways where no one was around, there was no sign of detection at all.
What a martial art young lady, even though she’s a little girl, her grip is quite strong.
Even though I’m now the physique of a child, but since I’ve been compensated by [Warrior] rank 3, I won’t lose in strength, but she’s really gripping me with a strength that doesn’t look like that of a child.
The otherworlders are scary~.
“We’re here! Well, you can go heal Brother-sama now!”
And we really came to Klein-kun’s chambers without being noticed by anyone.
Great mobility, this kid.
This talent seems like it could easily become the best assassin or the strongest warrior in the future.
However, I can’t runaway after coming here, or rather the way to escape is completely blocked, so I’ll give him cold medicine despite my reluctance.
Probably, even if I let this little girl see my recovery magic, her response would “It’s no different from before!” She wouldn’t accept it, if she goes to file a complaint with her parents and expose the things she was with me, it might cause my head to be headed.
There’s no way to convince her……..
“Alright, hurry up!”
“I see, I see oh, my lady. Ugh…. ”
She blocked the way to the door to keep me from escaping. I was urged by the young girl who slapped me on my back from behind and took out cold medicine and natural water.
In addition, there were rice balls by the way.
Although all bets are off if Klein-kun causes a commotion over this, Klein-kun is about my age and looks sensible, so it’s safer than this little girl.
He will definitely accept my advice.
Thinking so, I decided to quietly wake up the boy.
