Knights, Elves and cheering party.
When I was about to have lunch with Milfi after the lessons, Aldin-sama intruded. Milfi was fond of my lunchboxes, so I decided to make one for her the next time.
“Rosarin, there’s practice for the athletic meeting. I would like you to participate starting today.”
Was this the reason he intruded upon our lunch at the cost of my dislike?
“I will participate as much as I can.”
I promised Aldin-sama and went to the Knights Order.
Dober-san’s glossy fur turned for the better. I want to touch it…
“Ahh, Rosarin-san. I will be relying on you today as well.”
Not perceiving my wicked gaze, Dober-san greeted me smilingly.
“The meal you cooked the other day was greatly received.”
“Is that so?”
“Well, you are my precious working force, so I won’t hand you over again, though.”
“It’s an honor. Dober-san, there will be an athletic meeting at my school soon and we are having a practice for it, so I would like to end working earlier if possible. Of course, I will do the same amount of work.”
“Understood. But, don’t overdo it, please. I will come to cheer you on during the athletic meeting.”
“Thank you very much.”
I finished a little earlier and went for the athletic meeting practice. Everyone was fully motivated. Like this, we might win on our first year.
A few days later. Rudolf-san came.
“You are too reserved, Missy!”
“What is this about? I won’t hand Rosarin-san over.”
“I’m telling you that’s not it! Missy, you have an athletic meeting soon, right? Since Missy is going to appear, we have formed a cheering party for you!”
I looked at Dober-san. He averted his gaze in fluster.
“Sorry, I had a slip of tongue…”
Oof, his ears fell flat… no, I am not angry or anything.
“Knights who are able to will all go to cheer you on, Missy! Of course, I will give Dirk a day off and bring him too! Wow, I am so looking forward to it!”
“Wait! A moment!”
The door was heartlessly closed.
“Sorry, I tried to stop him over and over again, but…”
“… He means no harm, so… it can’t be helped… I don’t want to participate anymore.”
However, since I had to participate, I spend my days with complex feelings.
One day, when I returned home, Sugar-san was kneeling on the ground. Eh?
I shut the door and opened them again. Unfortunately, I wasn’t hallucinating as Sugar-san was really kneeling on the ground. What happened?
“Forgive me! I had a slip of tongue!”
I had a similar conversation a few days ago. Is this that thing? Deja vu?
“What is this about?”
I had a bad feeling, but I wanted to confirm just in case.
“When I told Elf Chief that I am going to be cheering you on during the athletic meeting… the entire village was eager to go support you…! Sorry, I am sorry, I am sorry!”
Sugar-san was teary-eyed. I was also teary-eyed.
“Ojousama, I am also going to cheer you on!”
“… Ah~ well, life is unpredictable.”
Receiving an incomprehensible comforting from Martha and Arc, I was seriously considering suddenly falling ill, or even casting a curse upon myself.
