I Like Papa. But, I Like Mama Better
Three days after the festival.
I’m preparing to leave after spending a few days in the Elf Village.
“Somehow, I will be lonely.”
“Right. It was a short time, but it was almost as if the number of our children increased.”
Tira’s Mama and Papa who came to see us off said such a delightful thing.
“Thanks to you, every patriarch agreed to conclude a diplomatic relationship with the Alsara Kingdom. I can’t express my gratitude.”
“I have to report to the guild about the dungeon, and I have a business in the castle, so I will convey your words. I have some connections, after all.”
Of course, I’m talking about Ellen.
However, after appearing like the main heroine in chapter three, she disappeared after that……
(Please, refrain from using such meta-like statements, Master.)
Tira’s Papa nods,
“That will help. However, you have saved my wife and now this, you are taking care of anything and everything for us……”
“Don’t mind it. I’m doing it just selfishly.”
I’m also being taken care of by my skills, ha, ha, ha!
(You would be just a normal pervert without the skills, but you are the worst pervert because of the skills.)
Well, I’m embarrassed. (I’m not praising you.)
“Then, we should go now, Filia.”
“Say, Mama? Mama is not going?”
When I called out to her, Filia looked up at me with an uneasy expression.
Tira is planning to stay in the village.
She didn’t even come to see us off.
Why did she not come……?
Ah, is that it?
She’s surely embarrassed to be seen in tears.
Yeah, that must be it!
I might have made her more distant from me by licking her ears, but that’s definitely just my imagination!
(That’s the reason no matter how you look at it.)
Lo, look, don’t you say no even to a person you love?
(That’s the evilest stalker theory, Master.)
“I, it’s okay. We will meet again soon!”
“…… Mama, farewell……?”
Filia is on the brink of tears.
Of course, I’m also sad.
But, this is Tira’s home. Her birthplace.
She has a home to live in.
I was also thinking about settling in the village.
It’s really a comfortable place to live in.
However, I want to look around this different world with my eyes.
This desire doesn’t allow me to continue staying here.
Do I pick the wife, or do I pick the work?
It was the ultimate choice.
(Master, you have neither wife nor job.)
Naviko-san, I think it’s fine to occasionally treat me nicely?
“Don’t cry, Filia.”
“Papa is also crying!”
“I, I’m not crying! This is sweat!”
Well, I have transfer magic so I can visit her every day if it comes to that.
Still, being separated by physical distance feels quite lonely.
“Seriously, if you act like that, you are not fit to be Filia-chan’s Otousan.”
Then, I heard a familiar voice.
Filia runs and jumps into her chest.
“Mamaa~ Filia luvs Papa, but she luvs Mama as well…… I hate it if we are not together……”
“Yes, yes, everything is all right. Mama will be properly with Filia-chan, after all.”
Tira smiles at Filia and then she turns to her parents.
“…… Are you going, Tira……”
“I will be lonely……”
“It’s alright. I will come back again soon.”
Then, Tira turns at me who is stupidly staring at her.
“…… I, I also want to see more of the world. I, it’s not like I’m tagging along because of Karuna-san, okay?”
Tsu, tsu, tsu, tsundereeeeee!?
“Ye~s, Mama, I luv you!”
After hearing that Tira will be going with us, Filia’s tears completely disappeared.
I try embracing Tira while overflowing with tears.
I was instantly rejected. Her guard is high as usual.
However, refusal is also part of love…… eventually, surely……
(Therefore, that’s the thinking of stalker, Master.)
While I grieve, Filia buries her face into Tira’s chest and starts rubbing.
“I luv Mama’s scent.”
“Thank you, Filia-chan. Incidentally, Papa or Mama, who do you like better?”
“Right now, I luv Mama better!”
Filia immediately replies to Tira.
“Filia was won oveeeeeer!?”
Papa has received a great shock.
T, that can’t be……
(That must be because she was together with Tira-sama all this time for the past several days.)
Their bond has deepened in the meantime……
Ku, I really should have slept with them too!
“Why are you crying again? Let’s go.”
“Uu…… These tears are mixed with joy and sadness……”
I wipe my tears and grasp the two’s hands.
Then, I noticed for the first time.
That the elves are waving their hands at us from the trees.
After that evening, I returned to my original human appearances, but they were still friendly to me.
From the looks of it, the talks with the Alsara Kingdom will surely go well.
Furthermore, countless green lights float among the elves.
They are the Spirits of the Trees.
They also came to see us off.
“Well then, we are off.”
Tira bows her head down to her parents, and I chant the transfer magic.
I lengthen the chant as long as possible.
There’s no need for chant in the first place, but I just felt it would suit the parting mood.
By the way, Tira’s Papa was saying “After all, I don’t like it~ Tira should always stay by my side~” unreasonable things again.
The transfer to the guild in the capital city of the Alsara Kingdom.
I have to report that we have cleared the dungeon and collect the reward.
I have decided to jump right into the guild master ossan’s office.
That dungeon is S-rank, it would surely become troublesome if I report it at the reception.
I entered his room for a while the other day during the examination.
Eventually, the magic circle completes, and we get engulfed in light.
Thus, we bid farewell to the Elf Village.
I think that being seen off by so many elves and spirits is a quite emotional scene.
And yet, it was instantly smashed.
Because at the place of transfer――
“Ou, ou, ou.”
——Ossan is making sounds similar to a fur seal while mastXbating in a bridge pose.
(A pervert of equal standing as Master has……)
“I’m not that bad!?”
I will properly hide when mastXbating in a bridge pose.
