t can even be said that reaching C-rank itself in this short amount of time is irregular.
Your existence itself can be called irregular as well, Cielmer-san, so you might be able to reach B-rank immediately; but around this area in general, there are only a few requests of C-rank and above, so I can’t recommend doing that.」
「To be frank, I’d like you to stay here but that’s not possible, is it?」
「Yes, it’s impossible.」

Continuing after Celia-san, Carol-san asked.
Hearing my immediate reply, she breathed a sigh.
I really wonder why I don’t sense any reluctance to part from that sigh.

「Do you know a good place for ascending to B-rank?」
「In general, the capital, I suppose? The more people that gather, the more requests there will be.
Otherwise, the frontier where there are a lot of monsters.
Although, even if you ask me where that is, I really have no idea.」
I’ll think about it until I become C-rank.」

This is something that I can’t decide on by myself.
Rather, since Ciel will be the one mainly moving once we leave Sannois, there won’t be any issues even if I don’t give my opinion on this.

Today, we went home after singing at the pub.
But as I thought, it felt like we were being monitored along the way.
I don’t sense any danger for the time being, but it doesn’t make it any more pleasant.
Still, there were no signs of them following us in the inn, so we can eat in peace.
Ciel is really looking forward to mealtime as well, so if they get in the way, we’ll have to exterminate them.
I switch with Ciel when we eat at the dining hall, since Nilda-san barely talks to us, but it’s absolutely healing to see Ciel’s face reacting to every single thing.

As we finished eating, we headed back to our room and Ciel immediately laid down on the bed.
A neatly made bed feels good to even just lie down on, so I understand the feeling of wanting to throw yourself to the bed first.
Ciel properly sits on the bed before lying down but if it was me, I probably would’ve jumped on it instead.
It’s really hard to say who’s the real child here.
We didn’t use beds at home in my previous life, so just the fact that there’s a bed raises my excitement a bit.

『Come to think of it, there’s a person that I might have seen in the pub, but did you notice them, Ain?』
『No, I was too focused on singing, so I didn’t look around that much.』
『Ain always has fun singing after all.
Are the lullabies you sing to me fun for you too?』
『Of course.
It’s awfully fun to think about which song that would help you sleep well, what kind of voice to sing with, and what you would enjoy, Ciel.』
『Thank you, Ain.』

Smiling as she said, Ciel looked so absolutely beautiful that it made my heart skip a beat.
I’m certain that this isn’t because I was originally male, but because she has the charm to attract people regardless of gender.
There might come a time that she’ll be able to show this smile to others, but considering how it’s currently only directed to me, I can’t help but feel privileged.

『By the way, what will you do once we become C-rank, Ciel?』
『That was today’s question, right? It’s fine to do what you want to do you know, Ain?』
『We can’t do that.
Rather, I don’t have anything I want to do.』
『I see.
In that case, I want to see the ocean.
Since I’ve already seen the ciel, I want to see the mer too.
Can we?』
『Of course we can.
That’s right.
I want you to see the ocean too.』
『But we might reach B-rank later, you know?』
『If it’s your decision, I wouldn’t mind even if we get delayed.
Besides, we don’t really know the most efficient place to work at and, at the very least, I’d really like to be further away from this town.』

Ciel remembering the origin of her name makes me feel happy, but it’s somewhat embarrassing.
I just hope that she doesn’t notice my embarrassment.
Wanting to go to the ocean is not a big problem at all.
Instead, since it’s said that monsters become stronger as one goes nearer to the ocean, there should be more high-ranking subjugation requests available there.
I can’t be sure about how much we can fight against B-ranked monsters, but it’s not like I was doing nothing for half a year.
It might be just by a little bit, but the barrier’s durability should have increased and the reapplication after it gets destroyed is now much faster than it was before.
Ciel also has a much better proficiency with Dance Princess as well.
Though, with this one, we haven’t gotten any proper practice at all, so I don’t know how using it would actually go.

For those reasons alone, even if we encounter some B-rank monsters stronger than the cyclops, we should be able to defeat them without difficulty.
In the first place, we can’t accept B-rank requests, so considering that we’ll be generally up against monsters of up to C-rank, it shouldn’t be too dangerous no matter where we work.
Since it’s not like we’ll be at the ocean the instant we leave Sannois, peeking at the requests on the guilds along the way while searching for a perfect town or village to stay at should be good too.

『So, Ain.
Could you tell me the origin of the name Ainsel?』
『Ahh, umm…… It’s a secret.』
『You’re so mean, Ain.』
『Having secrets makes a woman charming…… is what I’ve heard before, you see?』

Being someone that’s somewhat like a woman yet somewhat not, though I still think of myself as a man if I had to choose, I couldn’t say it with complete confidence.
Although since I’ve already decided to hide my gender, it would have been better if I did so.
Unaware of my inner conflict, Ciel said『I’ll leave it at that.』with a gentle gaze, making me want to feel all the more depressed.



Hiya~! The mad lad! The boi! The legend! He’s finally messed up so much, beyond recovering if you ask me.
Well, I doubt that he learned anything from this.

I love how Carol played such an important role in this.
It’s only natural that she does, considering that, well, this *is* a test for both of them, regardless if Brass didn’t see it that way.
Or maybe he did and he just thought that they’ll see his *true strength* or something.
Anyway, good job almost turning the guild into a crime scene, Brass! This would have been Carol’s second accidental murder attempt, or rather her first intentional one to be honest.
Like, really? He really thinks that he’s important enough to be set up by anyone?

On the other hand, it seems like the party leadership test might actually happen now! Bless those saints that put up with Brass for so long, their hard work seems to be very much acknowledged.
As for our princesses, very cute as usual.
It’s nice to see Ciel being curious and Ain trying to avoid the question with varying results, lol.
You’re too easy to read, Ain.
Really, at this point, the other people are just trying to convince themselves that trauma is the reason the little girl Cielmer acts like she does.
Well, it’s just my opinion though.

If you’re curious, Brass didn’t actually say any specifics about the reward for the *stronger guy*.
It’s really Carol being lazy, lol.
So, Brass’ share becomes:
4/10 * 50%
(Since the other 1 goblin is worth the other 50%)
Instead of the uneven of
4/11 * 100%
Meaning, he gets:
4/10 * 50% = 20% (Which looks suspiciously easy to divide **wink wink*)
Instead of the original:
4/11 * 100% = 36.66%
Decimals don’t really help when you’re working with small money not reaching thousands, lol
