Lilianne of the Meeting
After the first stage of the Christophe family’s birthday rush, Claire and Theo’s birthdays ended without an incident.
The two were highly pleased and completely satisfied.
But, the second stage is right around the corner.
That’s only natural. This is a rush after all.
The second stage has about one month after the 9th Month before two people celebrate their birthdays.
The next target being the eldest daughter of the Christophe Household——Ellistina Christophe. In other words, our Oneesama.
Although there’s only a month, I should have a reasonable amount of time to prepare her present.
By the way, the guests might have been invited on the grand scale for Claire and Theo’s birthdays, but Ellie’s birthday party is planned to be only for the relatives.
Therefore, it will be good to limit the present on the family scale.
A present on the family scale is, in other words, presents like little girl maid, or selfishness coupons.
Doing something like that in front of strangers is, as expected, an out.
Even with the permission of the leading actress, it would be an out for myself, so it’s an out.
However, I did something similar the last year, so doing the same this year would be dull.
She had contributed many present ideas this year, so this year’s Ellie’s present should also be unique.
“What do we do about that…”
“What do we doo~”
“Hmm… you did dance and sing already…”
“Ahh… a troubled Lily is also cuteee…”
“Nii~ni, think pwopely about it~”
While sprawled together on Reki-kun’s fluffy belly, Theo was making entranced expression while we were brooding over Ellie’s present, so I lightly knocked on him to bring back his sanity.
“Whoa!? You were too angelic I lost my consciousness there!”
“Sorry, sorry. I will start thinking seriously, so cheer up. Okay?”
Theo who now attends the junior high is gradually becoming manlier.
When he stands next to that hunk of a prince, he really looks cool, a feast for the eyes.
Seeing his daily rapid growth, I recalled that children of this age would rapidly grow when you take your eyes off of them.
I have no doubts that after one year, Theo will grow even manlier and become even cooler.
He’s sufficiently cool already, but Theo’s growth won’t stop just here.
“Nevertheless, is there nothing, I wonder… something Ellie would be happy about… something Ellie loves… Flowers? Lily? Martial arts? … Decorate Lily with flowers and have her teach Lily martial arts? Not good, not good! That’s too dangerous!”
Theo’s thoughts are gradually swaying in a weird direction.
But, I have no good ideas myself. The most I can think of is to let Ellie do with me as she pleases.
Well, even if I say ‘let her do with me as she pleases’, Ellie is still a child.
At most, she would make me spend the day with her and treat me like a dress-up doll.
… Dress-up doll?
“Nii~ni, how about evewyone dwesses up~?”
“Dress you up? Dress you up… she would certainly be happy if you wore various clothes and made a fashion show for her. I also want to see it. Very much! Good! This idea is very good! Lily’s fashion show!”
I was thinking about everyone dressing up and getting a picture painted for Ellie, but it ended up going into a weird direction again.
Moreover, Theo was fully motivated.
Not good… utterly not good.
At this rate, he will end up holding a little sister exhibition.
“I, it’s not good if Nii~ni doesn’t appeaw too~”
“Eh, me too? Ah, right! I have to escort you! Alright! It’s decided! Ellie’s present is going to be Lily’s fashion show!”
It was going into the wild delusion territory as I thought, but since I pulled him to my side, I should be able to manage, somehow.
Since he is going to escort me, I am going to have him become a proper dress-up doll too.
Immediately after, Theo took my hand and gone to talk about the fashion show to Ena and Obaasama.
The two were very on board after hearing about it and they got excited thinking about the clothes they will make us wear.
[Test number 247, Commence]
A wave of amplified and enhanced magical power flew within the restricted space as if licking it.
The traveling wave touched every physical obstacle, gathering information which was then stored in the information accumulation space.
The Information Accumulation Space then filtered the data, carefully selecting information to project in the 3D Wireframe Model Space.
“Fumu. It’s still not finished, but it’s already selecting information fairly well.”
“I think it would be better to raise the filter accuracy in the 24th and 45th compartments.”
“If so, it would be better to lower the filter of the 79th compartment.”
(There’s also the option to sift through the main partition B.)
“Fumu… that would be possible.”
A strong wave of magical power that has been modified and improved upon the wave section of the “Magicprint Search”.
Just this section alone requires magical power that far exceeds the formula organization of existing sorcery.
Resembling multilayered waves of magical power, the first wave collides against a physical object and causes the next wave to change direction.
The Information Analysis is interposed within the waves, so information is gradually obtained.
Every time a wave dissipates, another wave is replenished at the end of the line, so it’s a sorcery that consumes an outrageous amount of magical power.
Different from the “Magicprint Search” that was a barrage-like magical power, the waves of magical power operate like a single entity, so they won’t simply dissipate all at once.
However, like this, the information gathered from “Information Analysis” will become terrifyingly many.
That’s why the information is accumulated in one place first, where it is filtered through a careful selection.
However, the problem is this very filter.
Extracting only the necessary information is extremely tedious.
If it does not sieve through all the information and select only the necessary, it would select too many pointless information and would be totally useless.
Moreover, this sieving also needs the necessary data and various settings to operate.
For that reason, the filter settings were split into compartments and numbered, the compartments were then further divided by walls.
It’s like organizing town districts and building walls around them.
Currently, the filter is still being controlled manually, but eventually, I would like to use “Telepathic Waves Identification” to control the filter unconsciously with thoughts.
The many filter settings and various circumstances are necessary for that very reason.
At the present time, a huge number of filters is needed to create a basic frame.
This all depends on the circumstances, so it’s not difficult to imagine how the time it needs to get complete may increase.
I am holding a meeting with Kuti and Sani Sensei for that reason, but we quite can’t come up with a good idea.
“Even though the information may be gradually wrung out, there is also a problem with the speed of the projection space.”
“The computing power of the Pad has been also reached, so we are limited in that aspect as well…”
(As expected, this is the limit of a single core… I think it’s about time we switch to dual or quad core.)
Currently, the aerial projection technology is dependant on the performance of the Kutipad.
At any rate, this aerial projection is currently the most taxing program to run on the Kutipad.
Normally, it would need a combination of many sorceries to work, so it’s quite cumbersome and very difficult to control.
That’s why we manage it entirely through Kutipad.
“Dual? Quad? What’s that!?”
(Presently, Kutipad is using only one processing system, right? We should make two or four processing systems run parallelly. The other thing we could do is caching… storing the data with frequent use and making them shareable.)
“T, t, t, t, there was such a way!?”
“Fumu, it certainly makes sense, but…”
“The spirit power consumption probably won’t simply double with two processing systems. Just what would the consumption be if we run four of them?”
(I thought it would be like that. I am currently supplying the spirit power myself, but it would be nice if we could keep down the spirit power consumption with the supply from Aether Crystals in the future.)
The Kutipad’s evolution has not come to halt just yet.
I proposed a plan to use Aether Crystals as fuel in the future to break away from the current situation where I am forced to use my own spirit power.
But, even if Aether Crystals contain extreme amounts of fuel, they have a limit.
Even now, they can fuel a single core only for a considerably short amount of time, so increasing the number of cores leads us to guess ourselves whether it would even boot up.
“Well, but it wouldn’t be a problem to make one for Lily, a kuad, was it? I will give a try increasing it to four.”
“Indeed. A single core is enough for us. We should be fine proceeding with the Aether Crystals batteries plan only on the single cores.”
(That’s so. The accumulated amount in the Aether Crystals also increases over time, so you will eventually be able to use them for dual or quad cores too.)
“Umu, that’s right. There’s nothing to worry about, Kuti. It will be fine, right?”
“It probably will. Rather, I can’t not grant Lily’s wish! I am going to do it~!”
(Fufu… do your best, Kuti!)
“I will work hard~!”
While anticipating of the evolution of Kutipad, the filter settings were increasing day by day.
