End of Autumn
Starting the next day, the furniture I could see gradually increased.
It began mainly with things I could use at first, then the things Obaasama and Ena commonly use started to get replaced.
The furniture I can use myself are thoroughly magic tool-ed, but the furniture of the common use type――drawers, large desk, etc.――are only done in a way so I could see them.
Installing such furniture in the room immediately would be obviously difficult, so they are carried to a different room. It would take time clearing the room, so Obaasama and others are discussing a change of rooms.
I can’t see in the first place, so I wouldn’t be bothered by a change of room that much.
The only difference would be getting used to the smell of the different rooms.
Besides, I currently spend most of my time in the Reki-kun room, so it’s rather the furniture in the Reki-kun room that is getting exchange more frequently.
By the way, the bowl that Reki-kun is feeding from has been already exchanged by a gigantic one.
It must be because I’m occasionally feeding him. Incidentally, it isn’t a magic tool. Also, Reki-kun’s food wasn’t tasty. I feel like I couldn’t eat it unless it’s properly cooked.
Like this, the things I can see smoothly increased.
Even though I was aware where things were I had troubles without sight, but even though I can’t see the colors, I can now properly grasp where things are. This is as I thought a great difference.
The most remarkable thing would be probably meals.
Whenever Eliott who is busy with the parade and other ceremonies has time and returns to the mansion, he converts things into magic tools.
The most extreme case is this tableware.
In the Christophe House where various tableware is used for cooking, their numbers are enormous.
Even in the present state where I eat almost the same things as adults, the number of tableware used for one meal is also considerable.
There are many food tray dishes and they are usually serving full-course meals, so there’s many.
Therefore, there is frequently more than just one dish.
It wasn’t like this for me who can’t see at first, but Obaasama made the decision when I ate deliciously with Ena’s assistance.
Therefore, under Ena’s guidance, I’m eating the same thing as everyone now.
But, it takes twice longer than everybody as expected. Therefore, the food naturally cools down.
There are only small amounts on each plate, but my eating speed is so slow they all cool down.
There are also times where I don’t eat much, but after all, it takes time because I’m unable to see. Ena explains every meal step by step without exception first. Naturally, it will also take more time because not every dish can be finished in one or two mouthfuls.
The repeated explanation of the same dish is shortened, but there are not many things to shorten after all.
It’s still quite difficult to have a peaceful meal while chatting with my family.
However, the magic tools tableware Eliott made improved that considerably.
The tableware Eliott made is loaded with warmth retaining function.
Moreover, the size and weight of the tableware didn’t nearly change, it’s splendid tableware that is appropriate to the Christophe House.
I don’t know their colors, but my first impression was that it looks like tableware from a fancy restaurant.
As mentioned before, my meals take a long time.
It’s only given that my dishes get cool.
It’s nearly impossible for cold things to stay cold.
They were directly heated while eating, but…… well, there was not much meaning.
But, that dramatically changed with this Eliott-made tableware.
The meals that were done the old way have been switched for the new tableware, it started with a small amount of several dishes until it was completely switched little by little.
The tableware was divided into child plates and each plate has its own warmth retaining function.
The hot and cold dishes are now always divided by an empty space every time thanks to Ena.
Also, I managed at best by a touch of fork or spoon until now.
But, Eliott has converted forks and spoons into magic tools as well.
Not only I can see it, but it also includes a surroundings adsorption function.
Adsorption prevents dropping, it even surrounds the spoon and prevents the soup from spilling.
I met unexpected difficulties with an ON-OFF switch at first, but I got quickly used to it after a few times.
It became a reliable ally once getting used to it.
Like this, with the help of the magic tool tableware Eliott made, both my visual understanding and eating speed rapidly increased.
The mealtime which took me twice as long until now has been shortened to about 1.5 times. This is extremely big.
Fundamentally, the meals in a high nobility house like our Christophe House take a long time.
Therefore, I have been doubling that long time with my meals.
I wouldn’t say it was painful, but it goes without saying that it was so long that I had to ask Sani sensei to start her lessons.
He’s currently busy, but I will have to say words of thanks to Eliott when I meet him next time.
The exchange of furniture is progressing even now.
My visibility is steadily increasing.
I can’t quite see the colors, but the vision is enough to regain an optical illusion from the memories of my past life.
Everything I see is entirely luxurious though.
The days that pass little by little are unchanged and yet they change with steady progress.
Eliott’s ceremony at the royal palace was held yesterday.
From our Christophe Household, both parents, grandparents, and the eldest son and next head of family Theo attended.
Ellie and I stayed at home.
I thought Eliott would say that he wanted me to come as well, but he’s apparently a considerable person in such matter.
No matter how peaceful Ovent’s royal palace might be, tricky kind of people exist anywhere and my existence which is closely watched by the heroes of the Ovent Kingdom, my grandparents, will attract a high degree of attention.
Therefore, what I meant to say is that I heard that the King wanted my parents and Eliott to let me, Lilianne, attend as well.
Of course, he was rejected.
If even the King requested my attendance, then quite a lot of information about me must have gotten outside.
I will become three years old very soon, so it’s only natural that rumors would start when my famous grandparents wouldn’t return to their fief all this time.
If you live for three years in a noble’s house, then you will certainly need to push information to the outside to some extent.
The servants of the Christophe House are tight-lipped. They are so tight-lipped they would rather die during torture then talk.
Well, you would have to go through the trouble of abducting them first though.
Protecting the safety of servants is important.
Therefore, it would be better to let some controlled information out to the public. Hide trees in the forest. As difficult as finding a needle in a mountain of hay, the information that we wanted out and information that we want to hide is cleverly hidden within true and false information.
Still, the people trying to investigate the Christophe House are never ceasing.
Those who are against the Christophe House usually can’t acquire any information. Spies that try to infiltrate such firm defenses are apparently caught after failing almost daily.
Even if they don’t take the direct route, even if trying to infiltrate repeatedly from indirect routes, they are crushed ahead of time.
That seems to be Ojiisama’s hobby as he occasionally boasts about it.
Today I will catch such and such at a such and such place and will increase the debt once again, he says.
It’s definitely not something he should brag about to a three years old girl, but suitably going along with your grandpa is also something like filial piety. His work in the fief he’s usually chasing in a haggard state――mainly from the anxiety of running away from his aides and getting immediately arrested?――is rapidly growing, so he feels more comfortable when he sees me.
Rather, I want to pity his aides. Should I make them a tea with the usual magic tool next time?
Returning to the main subject.
The information about me which is circulating in the royal palace is mainly that I’m an excellent grandchild whom my grandparents are keeping an eye for, the information about my Magic Eyes is concealed with the information of my excellence as cover.
Well, that excellence is considering she’s a little girl, such remark is closely attached, followed by she has a promising future, hahaha, and stuff like that.
But, because of the information that Ovent’s heroes are keeping an eye on me attached, it’s received slightly differently.
That’s probably why the King wanted to see me.
Being a celebrity is unexpectedly troublesome.
And now, I will probably come out as the reason behind Eliott’s attending at the 1st-grade sorcerer promotion.
No, it’s already out.
Eliott is such character, so not boiling up in the royal palace would be strange and the people of the royal palace will have their suspicions.
And even though I have considered it for a while, Eliott has apparently already brought me up as a subject.
It started with boasting about me more than my parents and grandparents.
Claire was at wits’ end because of that.
Sure enough, the talks of engagement are currently the royal palace’s favorite. Runner-up is Eliott being a pedo. Followed up by Eliott’s Magic Eyes being a miracle worker with infinite ideas.
It’s funny because it’s mainly correct, other than the first one.
By the way, extinguishing the fire of rumors is difficult, so the best way is apparently letting it naturally die out.
The King’s request was also based on the rumors, so there was apparently no problem in turning him down.
Even while things were happening, I spend my days peacefully without being directly involved.
If there was one thing, I was concerned about Eliott’s parade and ceremonies because I was the one who asked him, but in the end, there was nothing I could do.
At most, Eliott took full advantage of creating furniture to his heart’s content.
The third week of the 12th Month has come into view.
I will turn three very soon.
I’m looking forward to my birthday a bit this year because of the furniture I’m able to see.
While self-conscious of the slightly quickened heartbeat, I certainly felt Ovent’s long autumn slowly marking the end.
