I was lost in thought as I watched Mizzet fleeing away.
I was checkmate.
Well, after not being able to continue, let’s start a new game from somewhere.
If I had been killed in the city’s execution ground, I would have been able to quietly resurrect in the middle of the night and escape immediately.
While I was thinking about my future plan, Klein-kun spoke to me.
“I’m sorry, Priest-sama, Mizzet is always like this…. ”
“No, don’t worry about it. It can’t be helped by what happened. And please, call me Seth, or Kenji.”
“Hahaha, that’s a strange name.”
It seemed to be a strange name for someone from this planet.
But honestly, why did he suddenly get better?
In this way, he also said that he felt warm and fuzzy when he ate rice balls….
I glanced voyeuristically at Kleine, and not only was he feeling better, even his cheeks, which had been hollowed out from lack of nutrition, felt a little bulging.
Could it be…..
No, it can’t be…….
“By the way, you look much better now.”
“That’s right. I feel like I have more energy than before I got sick. Thank you very much, Kenji-san.”
Yeah, even I can see that now.
When he said he was in better physical condition than before he got sick, I guessed that he was right.
The reason was probably because of that, the rice balls.
Not only the rice balls, but also the medicine and water.
Maybe the food from the earth is a kind of stimulant with a magical effect to the people from another world.
Otherwise, it is hard to explain.
The cold medicine is a medicine to cure the illness, but the rice balls give an instant recovery of energy.
I don’t know why, but it seems to be a fact that otherworldly people have such a reaction.
“Lord Klein, you can call me Kenji.”
“May I? Then, call me by my first name too, that would make me happier.”
No, I’m not allowed to call you by your first name.
In the surface, the guild master said he will protect me as his grandson, but I wouldn’t take his words outright.
At best, maybe I’ll be acting as a servant.
Well, that’s only if I can survive after this.
I smiled bitterly to avoid Klein’s proposal, and after that, while I was chatting with him about the Earl family and the noble society, there was the sound of panicked footsteps coming from the corridor.
It seemed that Mizzet had brought her parents.
“Klein! Where’s Klein! I heard that the disease is cured, is it true!”
“It’s true, father. My body is now full of strength instead of any discomfort.”
Appearing Garellia-Earl Galhart light up the room with magic, approaching Klein who had become full of energy.
The Countess, Mizzet, and a few servants followed suit.
I wasn’t not in their eyes because their tension, or I was totally out of the loop.
I would be in trouble if I was suddenly attacked by “What are you doing in this place?”
After all, the girl didn’t say who cured him, she just told them that her brother recovered, right?
“Oh, Klein, my sweet Klein. I heard from Mizzet that you’ve recovered… That’s wonderful.”
“You’re exaggerating, Mother. It’s just that I’ve been suffering a bit longer, there’s no need to worry.,”
The Countess wept at her son’s return to health, and the Earl wept as well.
Well, I’m glad that he’s recovered too.
I was half forced to do it by the girl, but in the end, I’m glad I was able to treat him.
I don’t know what’s going to happen to me after that, though.
“But Klein, why did you suddenly get better? I asked Mizzet for details, but she didn’t say anything that made sense…”
“Otou-sama, I’m not lying! That weird guy over there cured him! He’s got some strange medicine.”
The Earl noticed me and turned around, and so the life of my character turned into a candle in the wind.
I wondered if I would remain unnoticed, but it seemed that the girl was not going to let me go.
The servants also noticed me pretending to be air in the corner and surrounded me for the Earl’s protection.
I’m sure Mizzet doesn’t mean any harm at all, but I’d like her to explain it better, don’t use argument as if strange person has done strange things, the way you say it will give a very different impression.
“How are you, Earl? I hope you are well tonight. ”
“Why are you here?”
This was a legitimate question.
But it hurted me to be asked that.
After all, I’m here completely out of my depth.
“No, It’s Mizzet-sama…”
“Yes, Otou-sama! He said he could cure Nii-sama, so I brought him to the room to make sure he’s real! I found this guy and interrogated him, didn’t I? How’s that? Pretty impressive, right? Hmph~.”
Hum~, she’s casually trying to take all the credit for herself.
What kind of girl is that? Is that what is called noble blood?
After that, the atmosphere of the Earl and Countess and their servants became calm, leaving Mizzet who had puffed out her chest as if to say “Come and praise me, come and praise me,”.
Apparently, with Mizzet’s testimony just now, they recognized that I was brought here by force.
Nice, little girl!
She did some crazy annoying things, but she’s insanely competent!
“Oh~…….. , so that’s how it is…….. I’m sorry, young man, my daughter is good at being energetic, but she’s often too energetic and runs out of control…. Please forgive her.”
After the Earl said that, he clapped his hands with “pang” and asked the servants to retreat.
The misunderstanding seemed to have been completely cleared up.
Great, so I didn’t have to log out for the restoration of my character.
Originally, I had planned to stay hidden for a while and level up, so I didn’t want to return to Japan where I would be chased by shikigami.
The Earl gently embraced Mizzet, who was still asking for praise, and continued.
“Even though you were introduced to me by my father Wilson, at first I was still half-hearted about whether such a child could really cure my son’s illness, but it seems that it was all just me being blind. ……. Thank you for saving my son, I am grateful. If there is any reward you would like, please feel free to ask. I’ll do my best to make it happen for you.”
The Earl thanked me in such a subtle way and promised to pay me .
….That being said. I don’t have any specific requests.
Well, I’ll think about it.
As I was troubled, my gaze met with Mizzet, who was pleased to be petted by her father.
I had a bad feeling about this.
“You can make Otou-sama grant your wishes, but you don’t ask for anything. Oh, I love it!”
“No, that… ”
Give me a minute.
“Otou-sama, I want this guy! As a reward for healing brother-sama, I want him to be my own.”
“Hmmm, that sounds interesting, Mizzet. It’s a good idea.”
So it’s not my reward, but thus little girl’s reward?
But I couldn’t say anything tactful in front of the Earl and Countess, who were surprisingly enthusiastic about the idea, so I had to wait and see how things went.
