“I will definitely make you happy! Please marry me!”
It’s sudden, but right now, for some reason, I’m getting proposed to.
A proposal, huh… it’s the second time in this life.
The first one was really awful! I have a memory (Amalie’s) of receiving a serious body blow.
That eggplant! Excuse me. No, however, that fellow is an eggplant.
There was no need to say a thing like “If it can’t be helped, I wouldn’t mind marrying you, you know?” you know!
Death!! Even though I ignored it completely! Amalie’s answer was correct!
“A, Ar Niisama! What are you saying!?”
When Wirbel raises his voice with his eyes wide in surprise, Arthur-sama answers with a serious expression on his face.
“Even if it’s Ar Niisama, I won’t hand Okaasama over! The one who will bring happiness to Okaasama is this very me!”
“What are you saying, Wi. I said I would be the one to do it!”
“Anne will do it too~”
Anneliese-sama participates in Wirbel’s and Arthur-sama’s quarrel.
Wirbel, so cute! No, all of them are so cute!
The maids are watching the three children while smiling and a heartwarming mood floats around.
Arthur-sama is Bianca-sama’s son and the eldest son of our Flaksburb house.
I’m meeting Arthur-sama for the first day today.
Well, I have just met Anneliese-sama recently too, so it’s not that strange.
Everyone must have been paying extreme caution so they wouldn’t meet the hysterical woman.
That Arthur-sama for some reason suddenly appeared in the Sunlight Mansion.
Well, the reason is clear.
And that’s this fragrance.
The sweet, sweet scent filling the mansion must have reached the main building.
A child would normally be tempted by this fragrance, don’t you think?
I have received Arthur-sama’s polite greeting and invited him to have tea with us. And then, as soon as he got a mouthful of Baumkuchen, he made that statement.
Rather than to me, this is a proposal to Baumkuchen, isn’t it?
“Ar Niisama! Okaasama is already married to Chichiue! Okaasama can’t get married to you!”
Hearing Wirbel’s sound argument, Arthur-sama holds his tongue.
“It was so…”
Zu~n Arthur-sama gets disheartened.
Is Arthur-sama perhaps a musclehead?
Well, he’s just four years old so he may just have simple thoughts, but I somehow dislike his disheartened appearances.
It makes me want to pat his head!
When I unconsciously pat Arthur-sama’s head, his face turns bright red and his body stiffens.
Ha! Is this perhaps the moe thing!?
The heartwarming mood changes and the maids get agitated by Arthur-sama’s cuteness.
Gyumu… posu… patpat.
My small hand slowly transfers from Arthur-sama’s head to Wirbel’s head.
While being patted by me, Wirbel says “I didn’t do anything” and averts his head with a red face.
The maids who couldn’t stand it anymore scream in joy.
Only Berta looks at the maids with a stern gaze, but because I see her lips subtly twitching, she must feel the same as everyone.
Yep, I understand! My child is so cute, right!
“N? Anneliese!! What are you doing, eating my portion!?”
“Ar Niisama is not eating!”
While everyone was getting crushed by moe, Anneliese-sama ate the meal by herself.
After eating hers, she even ate Arthur-sama’s share of Baumkuchen.
But, I smell a crime of conscience since she didn’t eat Wirbel’s share.
It was planned!
When another plate with Baumkuchen is prepared for the almost on the brink of crying Arthur-sama, he instantly stuffs his mouth in one go.
A, are you all right?
Rather, Anneliese-sama! Please stop staring at Arthur-sama’s plate! You will make him even more flustered!
On the other hand, Wirbel eats the Baumkuchen on his plate slowly at his own pace while savoring it.
Seeing the three different yet balanced personalities is truly intriguing!
I can feel that the relationship between the three siblings is good.
“Ah! That reminds me Okaasama, today something amazing has happened!”
“My, what happened?”
Did Christhard-sama display some “amazing” move again?
That person really hates to lose after all!
“It’s this vest!”
Wirbel points at the vest he’s wearing while saying so.
Ah, the vest I embroidered with magical power.
I was not satisfied with just one piece and started embroidering more of Wirbel’s clothes recently.
As a result, the control of my magical power has improved by far.
The embroidery is not visible to people’s eyes, so the visual appearances didn’t change by much.
Thus, I who got used to magical power, not embroidered only with magical power, but I also learned to embroider magical effects.
First, the most needed healing, then a shield. In addition, I am even able to set various conditions!
The other day, I asked the Cooperation Union Chief about barriers.
After all, I wanted to learn it fast so I could protect Wirbel.
Opening a dimensional space every time would have terrible consequences after all.
In this regard, the Cooperation Union Chef taught me about Shield magic in addition to the barrier magic.
Barrier magic is difficult, but Shield magic is relatively simple. I was told that Barrier magic’s difficulty extends with its scope.
The introductory book of magic said that Barrier is not beginner level magic! I tried to appeal. What I did before is secret!
Then, with an amazed look,
“It’s not possible for a beginner to do that, but the book just introduced the magic, right?”
I was told.
Yep, indeed, I have a memory of it being explained too simply.
“Ah! That was incredible!”
“It’s was sparkling!”
After the Baumkuchen battle had finished, the two children joined the conversation.
“A little bird fell near a tree.”
“The bird-shan wasn’t feeling well!”
“Yeah, it looked like another animal attacked it, it was close to death, weakened from its wound.”
The three then told me what was so especially “amazing.”
To put it simply, the bird was rescued.
Apparently, the moment the bird entered Wirbel’s bosom pocket, the vest started shining, and the bird’s wounds got healed.
Moreover, it flew off full of life.
This is honestly amazing! My magic has improved! Is it alright simply rejoice?
Will I get scolded again?
No, that shouldn’t be the case! Right? Right?
I ignore the word “overdone” that passed through my mind.
First of all, would it be okay to think that it proved useful for Wirbel’s safety?
If the healing magic proved effective, the shield magic also should show its effect and protect Wirbel from danger.
I think that the piercing gaze I feel from behind me is just my imagination!
I won’t turn around no matter what! If I turn around, it will be my loss!
“Okusama, we shall have a talk later…”
“Yes, I understand.”
I turn around and coolly reply to Berta.
Although I’m dripping in cold sweat, I have to keep my dignity in front of the children!
I’m not trembling! It’s true!
