hind the trees, it’s at the point that it’s hard to imagine that a person would even think of entering this forest.

『It seems to be a barrier that inhibits recognition.
As long as you don’t know that a road exist here, you probably wouldn’t think of entering.』
「Sorcery is really amazing.
No, perhaps this may have already reached the realm of magic.」
『Probably so.
As I am right now, I can’t possibly replicate it.』
「So this means that he would go this far to hide that mansion…… right?」

I empathize with Ciel who is taking a deep sigh.
This means that that man has enough power to use magic of this scale; moreover, he’s using that power to hide whatever he’s doing from the world.
If he had his eyes on us, it’s probably no exaggeration to say that he’ll chase us till the end of the world.

『It looks like it might be best that we leave this country as soon as possible.』
「Is it perhaps simple to do so?」
『There’s a high possibility that an average citizen doesn’t have the freedom to travel.
     However, if the organization I imagine does exist, it’s likely possible to do so.』
「So in the meantime, we’ll figure it out when we reach a place with people, right?

     Though I do think that we could just go to another country as well.」
『Illegal entry may result getting forcefully deported at worst, you see.
     I think it’s better if we solve any problems first and then boldly leave the country legally.
If we absolutely need to run away though, I’m also not reluctant on forcing our way through.
     For now, let’s investigate on how cross-national travel works when we reach human habitation.』
「I see.
We might even be able leave unexpectedly soon, after all.」

Ciel lets out a giggle as she said so.
It would be nice if it goes as Ciel says, but I think that both Ciel and I understand that our prospects are dim.

『Now then, first, about the continuing road splitting into three ways; which one shall we take?』
「In times like these, there aren’t any signs and such to choose which one is better, aren’t there?」
『Regardless of which you choose, I do believe that we’ll reach some village or town somewhere, but there isn’t much basis for deciding on choices like these.
     If you absolutely find it difficult to decide, then it might be better to let the stick decide.』
「Will we perhaps know which is better if we do so?」
『It’s not a definite answer, but in this situation there might be not much difference between choosing to let the stick decide or talking it out ourselves, don’t you agree?』
「Hmm…… True; rather than use up time here, it would be better to make the choice now, right?
     Is a branch good enough for the stick?」

After groaning while seemingly pondering on it, Ciel adopts my suggestion.
If we were in Japan, then it would be more productive to find a map rather than doing this; but in our current situation, there’s hardly anything we can do.
Even if the road going straight after leaving the forest leads en route to an ideal town and the roads left and right directs us to villages that hate outsiders; if asked if I would choose the road straight ahead, I wouldn’t be sure.
After all, I have no means of knowing if the road ahead so is the best.

Even if I think that the place we reached isn’t too safe of a place, it would only be on hindsight; the only thing at fault there would be our own bad luck.

After replying「Of course.」to Ciel, she walks towards the base of the nearest tree.
She then extends her forefinger and draws an arc, moving as though she was waving a conductor’s baton.
A blade of air shoots out and a narrow branch falls.
It’s vastly weaker than how Ciel’s sorcery should originally be, but even just this was recognized as a dance; being able to use chant-less sorcery isn’t really something I would call disappointing.
This shot can at least defeat a large spider after all.

Out of all the Dance Princess in the past, was there no one that could use sorcery?
Or perhaps have they just not hit upon the idea of using sorcery to make their dances more fascinating? Regardless of the reason, considering the need to hide Ciel’s job, it really helps that this isn’t known.

After picking up the branch, Ciel mutters「Let’s choose the one that the narrower end points to.」and, swinging her arm upwards, she throws it to the air.
Soaring just above us, the branch soon loses to gravity and starts falling down.
And as the branch returns to the ground, it lands center right and falls towards the right.
Seeing that Ciel says「So here then.」and begins walking on the road to the right.
