mphantly smiled, confidently moved several steps forward, and squatted down once more.
And right before her eyes, there surely was a four leaved pseudo-clover glimmering with morning dew.

You did really well finding this.』

As I honestly praised her in amazement, Ciel had a bashful look, which then turned into a strained smile.

「I think Ain would find one immediately, you know?
After all, it has more magic power than the others.」

Now that she mentioned it, I tried properly sensing its magic power, and as Ciel said, it has more magic power than the others here.
Also, I feel that it has a slightly different property as well.

『It really is different.
Since we actually found one, why don’t we keep this for ourselves?』
「Right, why don’t we.」

This time, Ciel showed a somewhat teasing smile, and seeing her really enjoying herself makes me feel relieved.
Keeping something that was asked for in a request somewhat feels like I’m doing something bad, but I hope they’d forgive us for taking one for our share.
Rather, harvesting herbs that we need while accepting a request on the occasion is actually more efficient to be honest.

『In that case, there’s one more thing I’d like to bring back with us as well.』
「I see.
Let’s bring it back then.」

Ciel cheerfully approached a certain flower.
Even among all of the herbs here, this one has a conspicuously large amount of magic power.
Maybe even reaching the same level as a low-class monster.
It seemed light green from a distance but up close, I noticed that the flower is actually transparent.
Close to the ground, it has leaves as big as Ciel’s palm and on top of them is a lovely flower.
The flower has a shape similar to that of a cherry blossom, but its petals are devoid of color, only having the tenderness of a plant.
I lightly checked the area, but there doesn’t seem to be any other like it.

「It’s pretty.」

『It really is.』

As we approached it, we were captivated by its presence.

「If we take this flower back and it wilts, it’s just…… right, somehow sad.」
『There are ways to maintain its current state as much as possible, but……』

For example, pressing it and such.
Pressing it inside a book is all I know though.
If we had a flowerpot or something, we might be able to move it and bring it around as well, but that’s difficult with our current lifestyle.

「You mean processing this flower, right Ain?」
『Drying it will make it last longer, you see.』

As I answered her question, Ciel began to brood about it.

Then in the quiet forest, a gust of wind suddenly blew.

The wind almost made me close my eyes in instinct, but then it all happened in an instant.
The flower rode the wind and flew gently towards Ciel.
Almost feeling some sort of intent from the flower, it left Ciel absolutely puzzled.

On her hand, the flower is there without its stem and its petals seem more inorganic, unlike just seconds ago.
The shape of its leaves has changed as well, making it now look like a hair ornament.

「Say, Ain.
Do plants… do this?」
『This is my first time seeing it.
I’ve never heard of this happening as well.』
「I know right? This… what should I do with it?」
『Since it turned out like that, I think you can put it on your hair, but with it being transparent, it won’t really shine too much, will it?』

It’s not like I’m an expert with colours or anything, but even if you put something transparent on top of something white, it’ll just become white and won’t stand out.

「I don’t really understand it that much, but it would be better if it had colour, right?」
『Concerning fashion, I think having some colour would make it cuter on you, but in the sense of not standing out, the transparency might be good too.
Though, if people notice you wearing a transparent flower, that could make us stand out in of it self.』
「What colour would suit me then?」
『On colors, I think black would make a good accent.
But if I base it by this flower, then a dark tawny or green for the leaves with the flower being a blue that turns lighter as it reaches the tip would be nice, I suppose.』
「That’s awfully particular, isn’t it?」

Ciel giggled so, but if given the chance, I’d really like to dress Ciel up.
While a part of the reason I chose blue is because of her eyes, it’s also because I’ve seen a cherry blossom of that colour before.

I’ve only seen it from a picture, but I remember it looking strangely mystical.
If it’s that, then it should be capable of bringing out Ciel’s beauty without losing to her.

「Then perhaps we should try finding a blue flower hairpin when we return to the capital.」
『In that case, it would be better to ask the people working in the clothing shop.
I’m just giving an amateur opinion after all.』
「Ain, I want it exactly because it’s the colour you just said.
I don’t care about other people’s opinions.」

Hearing Ciel’s straightforward words, I couldn’t say anything back.
Well, yeah, I am making this 『Uu, aa……』 incomprehensible whimpering though.
At times, Ciel’s purity really troubles me.
What’s the right way to react in this situation?
Before I could say anything, she says 「I’ll put this on so it doesn’t get in the way.」 and brings the transparent flower near her hair.

In the next instant, the flower, or rather it’s leaves, entwine almost longingly to Ciel’s hair.
It then turns dark and its flower turns into a blue that gets darker as it approaches the center.
With the flower being translucent, it seems just like a gem at first glance.
And while it’s only in small quantities, it looks like it’s absorbing magic power from Ciel’s hair.
Though, since it seems to be absorbing my magic power, I don’t really mind it much.
After all, even after considering the barrier and detection’s maintenance needs, my magic power balance is still in the black.

「Umm, Ain? What happened?」
『The flower turned into a hairpin of sorts and changed to the colours I said earlier.』
「Will this… still turn back?」

As she said so, Ciel brought her hand close to the flower, which then undid its leaves and landed on her hand.
What a mysterious hairpin.
As it landed on Ciel’s palm, its colour also turned back to normal.

「It seems like it’s back to normal.
It’s a shame that I can’t see it for myself, but did it suit me?」
『Yes, it was beautiful.』
「I see, I see.
In that case, I’ll wear it for a while.
Will that be fine?」
『It doesn’t take that much magic power, so it should be fine.
Also, since it’s absorbing magic power, then that could mean that it won’t wilt.』

Upon hearing my words, Ciel puts the flower back on her hair.
And as before, it attached by itself.
Seemingly satisfied by this, Ciel went back to harvesting the requested herbs.



Heya~! Our princesses are doing good work and then suddenly, mysterious flower???

Anyway, today was a blessed AinCiel chapter it seems.
Wholesome bonding from our main pair and Ain just straight up blushing from Ciel.
Ain be best girl as usual it seems.
A rare but fine trait for the main characters to be honest (Definitely just my opinion).
On the other hand, seeing Ciel come in contact with the world is just… yeah, great as usual.
Just seeing her relatively normal experience is really satisfying to see and the back and forth between Ain and Ciel is always a treat.

(Say no to content thief!)

The flower part was honestly funny though.
Yes Ciel, plants don’t usually do that.
Still, the flower is quite enigmatic.
And speaking of enigmatic, really, first the forest wolves, now the overgrown herbs issue.
Smells like our familiar friend “trouble”…

By the by, this is the Blue Cherry Blossom Ain was talking about.
It definitely fits with silver or white.
