A room in the dainty fairy pavilion.
I was in Nina’s room, rubbing my head on the ground and apologizing.
Even though I was confused, it was the mistake of a lifetime.
“If it’s a status abnormality, I guess it can’t be helped, ……. Just be careful next time.”
Nina sighed as she said that.
It looks like I managed to get forgiveness in that it wasn’t intentional.
I hear the words, get up and head for the exit of my room to go back to my room.
I’m tired today. Let’s go to bed.
Then Nina stops me from behind, looking flustered.
When I turned around to see what was going on, Nina got up and ran over to me.
“Would you have talk to me for a minute ……?”
“Yes. That’s actually the main reason I came to your room earlier.”
Nina said a little, a shadow on her face.
I went back to my room and sat down on a chair as Nina proceeded.
Nina sat down in the chair facing her.
“So, what do you want to talk about?”
I urge Nina to speak quickly.
Nina began to pontificate, leaving a faint darkness on her face.
“‘The country of my birth……. I’m going to tell you about something that happened to Yuresh.”
The magical kingdom of Lisbet.
In the northern part of the country, further north from the country named Logimel, there is a country that bears the name of magic kingdom as well as Lisbet.
The magical kingdom of Yuresh.
It was a great country that was the twin peaks of Lisbet in magic research, and in particular, it was the country that had done more research than any other country on the magic of the flame system.
Snowden, the capital of the magical kingdom of Yuresh.
A royal castle with blue walls surrounded by perpetual snow.
A room in the castle that was called “Ao-den of White Ice” because of its beauty.
As if to melt the freezing air, a powerful and hot voice of birth sounded.
“Congratulations, my queen. It’s a girl.”
The birth mother holds the baby carefully and shows it to the woman she calls queen.
“This is my ……”
The queen receives the baby with great care and looks into her face again.
The baby was so tired of crying that it was sleeping comfortably.
Dia menyodok dan menusuk pipinya dengan gemas.
She poked and prodded her cheeks in lovable.
A soft rebound comes back to her index finger.
The queen felt an inexpressible emotion well up in her chest.
“Olivia! Is it safe! Is it born safety?”
Then, a man with blood on his hands jumps into that one room.
“My king. The queen is exhausted from childbirth. Please do not speak too loudly.”
“Uh, okay. I’m sorry about that.”
The king was warned by the midwife and looked pensive, but as soon as he saw his wife and the baby she was holding in her arms, his expression brightened.
“Is this the girl? Is this the boy?”
The King slowly walks over to the Queen.
“Yeah. Our treasure. They say it’s a girl.”
“Oh. A girl.”
“Why do you sound sorry?”
“Hmmm. I prefer a boy. …… when it comes to heirs.”
At that moment, he felt an icy aura from the mother.
As if to say, “If you talk lightly any more than that, you know what will happen.
“No, it’s nothing.”
“Geez. You’re really easy to understand.”
Laughing at the king, who has completely surrendered, the queen wipes the tears from the corners of her eyes and turns her attention to her child again.
Then she spoke slowly.
“It’s okay. Your dad is just jealous because his daughter is so much cuter than him. You have nothing to worry about. My father was the same way.”
Then the baby’s face seemed to clear up a little.
The queen smiles in satisfaction at that.
“My king. Have you chosen a name?”
“No, …… that’s….”
Prompted by the midwife, the king was a little upset and took out a piece of paper from his bosom and handed it to the queen.
The queen looks over the paper that was handed to her.
“Hmm. All of those names sound like boys.”
“I’m sorry. I just prioritize what I wish for……”
“This man really ……”
The mother sighed in exasperation.
The queen hemmed and hawed and wondered what was going on.
In a list of potential baby names.
She saw one glittering letter.
“It’ll do for a girl.”
The queen points to the name and shows it to her husband.
“Oh. That’ll do.”
“Well, well. Well, isn’t that a lovely name!”
The midwife also looks into it and her face lights up.
“I seem to recall it’s an old word meaning ‘Kaiho’. Where did you know of such a word?”
(解放 = Liberation)
“No, no. No, I was locked up in the library thinking of a name. I was also reading some old books, so I borrowed from there.”
The king said confidently, as if he was suddenly in a good mood because of the praise from the two woman.
That was very funny for the queen.
Come to think of it, it was this childlike quality about him that attracted her to him.
Thinking so, the queen smiled again.
“But it’s a little hard to call her that. Why don’t we just use this as her official name and call her by her nickname on a regular basis?”
“What’s with the nickname?”
“‘For example, ……. Yes, how about Nina? Nina in short. Nina Yuresh.”
“Nina ……. Nina Yuresh! Now that’s a girlie name. I like it!”
“Yes. I agree with you. You’ve been given a good name. Nina-sama.”
The king, the queen, and the midwife.
The baby, who was looked into by the three, slowly opened her eyes.
Then she looked at each of their faces and started laughing.
“Oh, Olivia. She just smiled in my face!”
“You are too conceited, King. She smiled in my face.”
“‘Hey, what are you talking about? It’s me!”
While the king and the midwife stare at each other on the edge and engage in a barren struggle, Nina, in her mother’s arms, stares at her face.
“What’s going on? Nina?”
Olivia smiled gently, and Nina smiled again in response.
“It’s not fair to keep Nina all to yourself, Olivia!”
“I’m not keeping her all to myself. Right, Nina?”
“Oh! She smiles again!”
The magical kingdom of Yuresh, a powerful and prosperous country in a land closed off by ice.
A room in that frozen castle in that frozen country was filled with warm air, as if it were springtime.
