f』in a certain country in my former world.

One day, the fairy Ainsel appeared before a boy who was playing near a hearth.
Ainsel introduced herself and the boy replied 『I’m Ainsel2 too.』 in kind.
The two played happily together but then the boy accidentally got the fairy burned.
The fairy cried for her parents.
And the parent came before her crying child asked 『Who did this to you?』
Since the boy introduced himself as Ainsel, the fairy answered 「It was Ainsel!」 but this only troubled the parents, so the fairy was then taken back to their home.

That should be the gist of the story.」

The details are probably different but that was what approximately happened.
Thinking about it, I can’t help but feel bad for Ainsel.
If I’m not wrong, there are some that say that she was also scolded by her parents.

「I understand the origin of Ain’s name.
But why did you keep it a secret?」

「It’s because Ainsel has become a switch for me to disappear.」
「You can’t disappear, Ain.
You promised not to!」

As expected, Ciel is displaying an extreme reaction.
As if to keep me from leaving, the arms around my neck tightened and our bodies got even closer.
To calm Ciel down, I gently caress her arm.

Since there’s no need for me to disappear anymore, I decided to talk about it.」
「Really? That’s not a lie, is it?」
「Of course.」

As I answered her, Ciel loosened her arms.
Even so, our bodies remain close to each other.
Our cheeks are also stuck to each other.
This warmth is different from that of the bath, this sensation of skin touching without anything in between, I just want to surrender myself to it.

「Now, about how I would disappear, in short, it’s because Ainsel means ”Myself”.
Even just Ain would still hold the meaning “Me”.
Therefore, even if Ciel calls me Ain, it would be no different from you pointing to yourself.
That would be how it would seem from an outsider’s perspective.」
「So even if I say, Ain casted this barrier, it would be like I’m saying that I casted this barrier, right?」
「I wasn’t confident that it would work, rather it was more of wishful thinking from me.
As we know, some sort of sacrifice is required to use magic.

Thanks to that, I can’t use combat sorcery.
I probably can’t use healing sorcery as well.
Though, in the case of healing, Song Princess can cover for it.

「That’s why I thought of a magic that would grant all my capability and skill in sorcery to you, Ciel.
After all, with that, you would be able to cast a barrier on your own.
The sacrifice will be my own existence.
It would erase the fact that I existed, leaving not even a trace behind.
It would also alter memories and it’s quite doubtful if it’s even possible to do, but since I used the name Ainsel3, that somehow made it possible.

In other words, if this magic is activated, everything that I have done will become Ciel’s.
After all, excluding the people of this mansion, the only person who knew and used the name Ainsel is you, Ciel.
Excluding Fiiyanamia-sama, since she’s a divine messenger, the maids who assisted me might feel something out of place since they assisted “themselves”.
But other than that, I should disappear from everyone’s minds without any big issue.

None of the people we met before coming to this mansion know about any Ainsel, so memory alteration wouldn’t be necessary.」

Whether it was even possible or not, I honestly didn’t know.
It’d be nice if I could, it was practically wishful thinking from me, but since I got the Supreme God’s approval, this should become magic.
Or rather, it might be that this is possible to do exactly because there’s an excess of the Supreme God’s power.

Whatever the case, if Ciel doesn’t want to be a god, if she can’t accept what I actually was, or if it’s judged that I’m unnecessary; I intended to disappear using this magic.

「Then, even now, Ain is still in a state in which that magic is usable, right?
What can we do to make that magic unusable?」
「If I’m given a different name and called that, the magic will become unusable.」
「…… That’s troubling, really troubling.
To me, Ain is Ain, any other would feel really weird.」

Well, I understand how large of a hurdle it is for Ciel to think of a name for me.
Besides, I understand the feeling.
It would feel weird for me to be called by the name Yumemura Leon after all this time too.
In that case, if Ciel can’t think of anything, having her call me by my former name should be the best option.
After all, even the Supreme God didn’t speak of it.

Still, with how I look now, the name Yumemura Leon doesn’t really fit me.

「In that case, even just this once, please call me Yume.」

I was considering Leo, but Yume sounds a bit more girlish.
Hearing what I said, Ciel tilted her head in confusion but because our faces were close to each other, Ciel’s head hit mine.
For now, I gently brushed her cute head and Ciel ticklishly narrowed her eyes.

「Is that Ain’s old name?」
「A nickname made from my old name…… I suppose.
I thought that this one would fit my current appearance the most, you see.」
「I see.
…… Say, Yume.
I like Yume.
I like Yume so much.
So please, don’t go disappear, okay?」
「Yes, of course.」

I lean my head on Ciel as well.
There’s hair in between us, this somehow feels extremely calming.
At the same time, I understood by instinct that I can no longer use the magic that’d make me disappear.

Ciel is asking me for answers with her gaze, so I whispered to her:「I can’t use it anymore.」


Hiya~! Yes! We finally got to hear the secret of Ain’s ominous other magic, which is actually a self-destruction switch for herself!?

(Say no to content thief!)

Anyhow, here in this chapter, we see Ain finally opening up with the last secret she’s keeping, and in my opinion, this is the true final show of Ain opening herself and exposing her vulnerabilities, something that has been happening this whole arc.
As I’ve read with from other people’s comments, and in my own personal opinion as an individual, the time with Fiiyanamia was a bit forceful.
Even Fiiyanamia herself recognises that her method isn’t a fair method.
However, for me, that functioned as a good contrast to the opening up that Ain is currently going over right now, to the most important person that she really needs to open up to first.
The one with Fiiyanamia functionally served as a sledgehammer to make Ain self-conscious that led to Ain gradually opening up instead of letting her feelings overflow uncontrollably again.
It did lighten the burden a bit, but only temporarily, since it wasn’t really a conscious choice.
It was these little interactions with Ciel that really made the difference.

I also really loved how the story of Ainsel (Me aan sel, or My own self) was melded into this.
It subtly hints on the type of person Ain was, knowing a bit of fairy tales and loving songs.
It really does strengthen the Disney Princess image of Ain, lol.
And I don’t think this is a well-known story either.
As for me, I only learned of the story through this series, lol..

As for the adorable interactions, really, what else can I say? Still, Ciel subtly weaving in impure intentions with her innocent touching was funny.
Also small callbacks like how Ain taught Ciel how to make good lather with soap, Ciel mimicking what happened with Viviana, subtle things.
