Two as One Princesses
it a success.
The coins were mostly copper coins but I can see some silver too, so this should have earned quite a lot.
At the very least, even after deducting half to pay for the venue fee, it’s still a lot more than what a lower ranking hunter can earn in a day.
「Hey little lady, give us one more song.」
A hunter sitting nearby who seemed to be about the same age as the pub master requested, so I quickly looked at the pub master.
Since he nodded his head, I got really happy and sang one more song.
This time, a lot more people listened to me.
Even though they should have no idea of what I’m actually saying, they seemed to enjoy listening to me, so I’m feeling really good right now.
And before I noticed it, I ended up singing about five songs.
The money has piled up into a small mountain and my throat is parched too, so I bow down and go to where Carol-san is.
Carol-san was drinking a wine-like red liquid at the counter seat.
「As usual, you’re really good at singing.」
「I’m glad that you enjoyed it.」
「It seemed to me that you also enjoyed it yourself.」
It was really fun.」
「Still, you actually act like your age when you’re singing.」

Saying that, Carol-san takes a gulp of her wine.
That said, however, if what she meant by that was that I was acting like a 10 year old, then I actually wasn’t acting my age.
Still, it is true that I enjoyed it and I certainly do look like a 10 year old, so I don’t mind it.
The little miss being that confident while negotiating earlier makes sense now.
I’ve never heard of those songs before, but it’s popular with the crowd.」
「Like I promised earlier, please take this half.」
Since the pub master talked to me, I pushed the small mountain of money in his direction.
With a troubled look, he shook his head and pushed the mountain to a stop.
「Say, you’re troubled with money, aren’t you? Then I can’t take this.
The drinks are selling because of your singing too, so I already got enough from you.」
「I’m not really troubled with money, so please take it.
That’s what we agreed on after all.」
As I once again pushed the little mountain, the pub master turned his head to Carol-san to ask for help.
After shooting a glance at me, Carol-san made an exasperated sigh.
I’m not the one who dragged you into this problem, so please don’t look at me like that.
Well, sure, this wouldn’t have been a problem if I just obediently accepted it, but, at least while I’m still in this country, I don’t want to accept charity.
「Well, you don’t need to worry that much.
This child is a hunter, you see?」
「Even if she’s a hunter, she’s at G-rank, yeah?」
「Nope, she’s E-rank.
Moreover, she’s an E-rank that can go solo.」
「Haah? This little girl…… is an E?」
「To begin with, I’m taking care of her, so you don’t worry about it.
I only took her here today because she wanted to come after all.」
Then, I’ll take it, I guess……」
With that exchange, the pub master finally accepted the money.
I put the remaining half inside a pouch, but it’s pretty heavy.
I wonder if that pig man had a magic bag on him.
If he did, then I really wasted the opportunity.
I actually wanted to gather some information from the hunters since they’re in a good mood now, but Carol-san was letting out a “hurry up and finish already” aura, so I decided to leave the pub for today.
As we left, the hunters told me「Come back again.」so it should be fine even if we go alone next time.
On the way to the inn, after we parted ways with Carol-san, Ciel talked to me with a slightly sulky tone.
『I’m glad that you enjoyed it, Ain.』
『Why are sulking?』
『I’m not sulking at all.』
Although she said so, Ciel sounded somewhat displeased.
I generally sing my songs for Ciel’s sake, so she might have felt possessive over it.
It’s the most fun I’ve had other than when I’m singing for you.』
The happiest I felt while singing was when you first heard my song.
I am how I am today because you enjoyed my song back when you were a baby.
Even now, the one thing I look forward to the most is singing for you, Ciel.
And it’s because you’re the one that listens to me singing the most.』
After all, Ciel has been listening to me singing continuously for more than ten years without getting tired of it.
With that said, there’s no doubt that my greatest pleasure is having Ciel enjoy my songs.
『I enjoy listening to Ain sing the most too!』
And even though she was still sulking just moments earlier, Ciel is already back in a good mood.
So with that, I decided to sing her a song.
Hiya~! We’re here at the pub and it’s the debut of our beloved song princess~! Yay~!
I really love how it shows how much Ain changed from how she was before.
In my opinion, you don’t need the MC’s past memories in reincarnation or transported to another world stories unless you do something with it.
However, some of these stories just leave the MC’s personality and character depth for some reason and use the memories as an excuse to make trendy jokes and pop culture references.
It’s not bad in of itself but having, for example, Frodo talk about pop culture jokes in Lord of the Rings really doesn’t fit the mood.
Unless you immediately destroy his hopes and dreams, that is.
Sometimes, we tend to forget that the reincarnated individual is reincarnated because of how much of their past we never explore, which is prevented by some novels because of how much they want the “food from home” almost irritatingly so.
This is what I like about Ain, she has little nonsense quirks that can be traced to her past.
The weird talent that mostly serves no purpose tends to be forgotten but… don’t we all have that weird thing we do because we like doing it but it doesn’t really help much for your daily life? Her singing is an important part of the story and even the fact that the language she is singing in being different is addressed and might even become a problem since no one knows about it.
Her being a fan of singing also naturally comes out here since, if you think about it, she doesn’t actually need to sing to gather information, she just wanted to sing in public and for her voice to be recognized, something that she didn’t have the courage to do in her past life regardless of the various media she could have used.
Still, maybe this difference I see is because of the fact that she didn’t actually have any wish to be reincarnated.
Maybe it’s because she didn’t really daydream of redoing her life better in another world.
She just loved singing.
And likes making really foamy bubbles.
And doing the plain but relaxing herb gathering quests? Yeah, but it’s mostly characters that are driven by what they want to do but aren’t given some op power regarding that that I like the most.
Well, she does have the song princess though, just doesn’t want to use it.
Also, I may just be a bit too biased but still.
Also, jealous Ciel be always cute.
I love both of them.
I need more jealous Ciel…
