I did my best to make sure that when someone capable of sensing magic power at the same level as me appears, they’ll misread Ciel’s power.

「I only noticed it after close inspection.
A top-class sorcerer would only barely notice something out of place, you know?
Besides this, the easier one would be from the reaction of the spirits.」

Saying so, Fiiyanamia-sama amusedly shifted her gaze to my lap.
Following her gaze, as I expected, the forest spirit was sitting on my lap.
The forest spirit waved at Fiiyanamia-sama, and Fiiyanamia-sama waved back in reply.
Do they know each other?

「With how different the spirits react to you two, those that can see are likely to immediately notice something out of place.
But with that said, they probably wouldn’t think that you became a different person.
Now then, would you mind telling me what Duke Rispelgia has done to you two?」

Since we went extremely off topic, Fiiyanamia-sama forcefully redirected the conversation.

「That man’s objective was to turn Ciel into a god.
To be exact, ummm, a god’s blood…… the blood that can only be drawn once…… he……」

It wasn’t something that can be said so casually, so I couldn’t help but hesitate.
After all, it’s a really sensitive topic for Ciel.
Even if Ciel is telling me 『I don’t really mind if you say it, you know?』 inside my head.
Fortunately, Fiiyanamia-sama seemed to have understood and「You don’t need to say.」told me so.

「Regarding what exactly he did in the attempt to make Ciel a god, I don’t know anything.
However, since the Jobs were something given by the gods, he seemed to have speculated that following the trace of the Jobs would lead to the gods.」
「Jobs…… is it.
The one that could be called the gift given by the gods to the human race which excelled at nothing.」

Fiiyanamia-sama had a distant gaze.
The way she spoke in such a roundabout manner makes me want to ask her about it, but I decided to continue our current topic.

「By tracing the magic power, which presumably was granted by the gods, consumed during the usage of the Jobs, he could find out where the gods are located and have a god possess Ciel, making Ciel herself into a god.
This is only a speculation, but I’m likely not wrong.」

「And this failed, correct?」
「What possessed and haunted Ciel was not a god but, for some reason, me instead.
I believe that he couldn’t tell if a god dwelled in Ciel or that I haunted her, so Rispelgia judged Ciel to be a failure at, I think, 5 years old.
He seemed to have thought that the body required time to adapt to the god.」
「Uh-huh, now I understand why you called yourselves a test subject.
There’s no lie in your words as well.
However, there are two problems.」

Fiiyanamia-sama raised two fingers and then pointed to me.

「There isn’t any solid proof that can be told to people, as well as any evidence that it really was done by Duke Rispelgia, right?」
You two want to keep the existence of Ainsel hidden, correct?」
「That’s right.」
「Well, you don’t really have any obligation to tell those children about yourselves to begin with anyway.
I only have to say that what you two have said to them is the truth.
Those that won’t believe this don’t deserve to be in my garden.」

I was considering at least divulging the fact that we have two Jobs, but it seems like we won’t need to.

「Also, I’m only asking out of curiosity but, having two souls, do the two of you have different Jobs each?」
「…… That’s right.
The one that was made known, Song Princess, is my Job.
Ciel has a different Job.」

Fiiyanamia-sama nodded curiously and then moved to the topic of Rispeliga.
After everything that happened, it’s not as if we actually got a self-introduction from that man.
We only judged that he might be Rispelgia from the documents and writings, so I can’t throw away the possibility that it might just be a regular man being made to seem like Rispelgia.

「The next topic would be whether it was truly Duke Rispelgia, but I can ask you regarding this, no?」

Fiiyanamia-sama spoke to my lap.
No, to the forest spirit sitting on my lap.


Hiya~! After several dozens of chapters and about 2 years in universe, our princesses have finally found someone to open up to!

Me gushing over Ain and Ciel’s characterisation because of a short exchange between Ain, Ciel, and Fiiyanamia incoming.

Ciel and Fiiyanamia’s interactions are really cute, to be honest.
Outside her interaction with Ain, this is one of the few times she have showed reactions befitting of her age, and in my opinion, this is because this is the first time she’s been asked about what she thinks about something, rather than about what she knows.
I might be overreacting just from their short exchanges, but this might honestly be the first time she’s been treated as a child but not looked down upon.
It’s such a simple question, “What do you think of this?” and she’s completely overwhelmed.
Anyhow, more of Fiiyanamia being on a different level in general, lol.
Seeing through Ain’s concealment, waving at a spirit, seeing spirits in general (it’s still unclear if it’s a race thing or otherwise though), and also, being so welcoming in general.
She’s not kidding when she referred to them as guests and it shows in her actions.
Ain is still cautious as usual and while Ciel was doing well talking with her, it was a bit of a shame that Ain had to take over the discussion, albeit it’s understandable.
It would be really nice if they find a way to talk simultaneously to another person, but this limit does make for interesting developments.

As I’ve suspected before, I honestly think that the one most affected by what happened during the first ten years at Rispelgia’s mansion is Ain.
Not that I’m comparing but Ciel being raised in that environment really broke her before she could have any frame of reference to what a normal life should be.
This, for lack of other words, worked to her advantage in this situation, making it easier for her to become numb to her own suffering.
And thankfully, because Ain was with her, she did not lose herself and her emotions.
On the other hand, while receives and feels the same torment as Ciel does, it affects her on multiple levels exactly because she isn’t a newly born existence.
First, the reality of this kind of things happening to a *newborn baby* is crushing enough, and she had practically no power to stop it.
Second, the reality that this child would never experience a normal childhood.
And then when *that* happened, the fact that Ciel might never have a normal relationship in the future and the fact that Ain *did* have some power now to protect her, but she let her guard down.
And then the realisation that the reason why Ciel didn’t react much was because the duke told her beforehand and *this could have been completely avoided if not for the fact that Ain **didn’t** even try to learn about the language which even Ciel have learned*.
And then after that the fact that Ciel was then tormented while she was gone, *that she couldn’t be there for Ciel when she needed her most*.
With this in mind, Ain is seriously pushing herself because she doesn’t even think that she deserves to live a second life, because she feels like she’s just leeching off a child.
And, for lack of any other words, I like how she’s characterised like this.
Ain stays strong for the sake of Ciel, and Ciel becomes strong due to her positive influence.
Again this is purely my opinion.
Also, Ain doesn’t really have much of an obvious “fatal flaw” (except maybe being too soft on Ciel, leading to some of their flirty shenanigans) but Ain has made many mistakes so far, honest mistakes, which aren’t caused by fatal flaws or anything, and it’s nice to see pure mistakes.

(Say no to content thief!)

I always think that it’s the little things that make something good and reading this again, I can honestly say that I really do love the little things.
Maybe too much.
