ing anything wrong at all but, I don’t know, why does it make me feel embarrassed?
Fii-kaasama…… Right, I can’t deny that saying it feels a bit weird, but I think it’s better than just Fii.
And okaasan…… doesn’t fit either.

Ciel giggling in my head is another factor adding into the embarrassment.
Mnnh…… She did say that seeing me troubled makes her happy, but is this what she meant?

As I was stuck contemplating, I suddenly felt a hand on my head.

「What is it?」
「Nothing in particular.」

When I asked poutily, Carol-san curtly replied and lifted her hand away.
What was that all about?
I don’t get it at all, but 「Oh, right.」 Carol-san then shifted the topic.

「You two becoming Fiiyanamia-sama’s daughters is a big problem in of itself, so be careful, alright?」
「That’s right.
It might be best to communicate that in advance.」
「What does that mean? It’s different from the previous issue, right?」
「Being Fiiyanamia-sama’s child, there’s a likely chance you will be seen as a successor and there are people who’d become agitated just from that.
These are only rumors, but there seems to be people already unhappy about this.」
「Well, I don’t think you two would get killed, though.」

Aah…… That does sound troublesome.
For some reason, what Fii-kaasama told us on the way home yesterday went through my mind, but I want to believe it’s unrelated.
Fii-kaasama likely knows most of everything but still… actually, if there are rumors now, then she definitely has an understanding of the situation already.
In that case, the rumors are either groundless, or she’s intentionally leaving it be.

It might be fortunate that we’re at least in a position where if something happens and we have to use force, we’ll be forgiven.
At worst, I suppose I could ask Liessyl-san a favor.
Shifting my gaze to her, our eyes met and she waved at me, so I smiled in reply.

… Ah, I’ve been out for a bit too long.
Opportunities for Ciel to converse with people other than me are invaluable, after all.
So I was about to tell Ciel that we’re switching, but then I remembered that I was in the middle of a conversation with Celia-san at the Hunter Guild.

「Celia-san, continuing our talk at the Hunter Guild, what sort of activities do the Central hunters perform? 」
「Oh right, we were talking about that.
Here at Central, there is a place with many monsters called a Den.
Dens are cave-like areas that expand deeper and deeper underground.
These were discovered to have, for whatever reason, monsters that are weaker in the shallower parts and stronger as you go deeper, and they inexplicably don’t travel between floors.
There, a hunter’s main work is to hunt monsters for materials and bring them back.」
「What a mysterious place that is.
Are there treasure chests too?」
「……? No, there are only monsters from what I hear.
Carol, have you heard about anything like those?」
But, well, there seems to be some people who call deceased hunters treasure chests.」

I thought that it’s one of the famed dungeons, but it seems to be different.
It does sound dungeon-ish, though, only without treasure chests.
As for why these exist…… I have a hunch Fii-kaasama and the creator god would probably have the answer, but will they tell me?

「Carol-san, you’ve gone there before, right?」
「Going to the den is the easiest way to live here as a hunter after all.
While it doesn’t pay as much as requests do, you can earn a considerate amount there if you’re B or A-ranked.」
「As for the Hunter Guild, they sell the materials to the Merchant Guild wholesale.
The Merchant Guild then sells these to other countries.
After all, with the existence of monsters, there is an unending demand for weapons.」

Just as Celia-san said, they’d probably sell as many weapons as they could.
A stampede just happened at one certain country too, so it won’t be weird for other countries to be on high alert.
Besides, there’s probably demand here within Central itself as well.

「Ainsel…… and I guess Cielmer too, do you two intend to delve in?」
「Who knows? We don’t have a need for money, after all.
So I suppose we might go out of curiosity?」

『Ain, do you want to go?』
『I’m a bit interested about it.』

Although I intended to part from it, my past life interests still remain.
Dungeons–– or rather dens ––are common in game settings, so I’d love to go there and sightsee.
Still, would it be fine to go there with Ciel for sightseeing?

For whether we should go or not, I’ll decide with Ciel later.
More importantly, I just remembered why we went back to the Hunter Guild.

「Come to think of it, we called for Rhavelt-san.
Was it really alright that we just left?」
「The grandmaster……」
「It’s fine.
It was because Friere asked you for a fight, after all.
Rather, you’re greater than him in status now, so no need to care about it that much, don’t you think?」
「That may be true, but I still can’t help caring.」

I forgot about it until now, though, so I can’t really say that I cared that much about it.
But still, if it’s fine, then good.
Once we finish here, I’ll show my face there.

『Now then, I’ll return your body now, Ciel.』
『Umm…… Right, I’ll switch with you now, Ciel.』

While thinking about how adorable this side of Ciel is, I returned control to her.

Heya~! Today’s chapter is quite a treat, more Ain being cute~! Ciel is adorable most of the time, and she was this time as well, but it’s rarer for Ain since she’s putting up the “I’m older so I have to be more responsible/stoic” front, so…

Anyways, this chapter is a bit of a refresher in general, since our two allies are putting together our protagonist’s main conflict in the first part.
Still, it’s really nice that Carol and Celia are shown here to come to their own conclusions from the information they just got.
Carol does this more, since Ain left more crumbs for her, but now it’s Celia’s time to puzzle it out now! And we can finally feel better for her since she’s not out of the loop anymore, yay! We also learn about “dens” today, the story’s equivalent of a dungeon it seems.
No treasures except from those that came and failed before you though.

Carol-Ain interactions are really fun in general because of Ain being somewhat sassy with her, but this time it’s really great.
We got the usual Ain-Carol dynamic of Carol being mostly irked or in disbelief of Ain not acting her appearance, but we also got Carol teasing Ain and patting her in the head! Despite how much they appear somewhat more distanced from each other, compared to Celia’s more friendly approach, Carol does care for Ain and Ain does think of her as somewhat like a collage friend.
Really nice.
Also, Ciel giggling at Ain being embarrassed and refusing to switch with Ain because she was talking like they don’t share the body was also cute.
Ciel is just plain cute, cheery or pouty.

Now then, I hope you enjoyed this chapter.
Please feel free to comment.
Stay clean, stay safe, and have a nice day~!
