as a bit different from what I expected.
I’ll keep the fact that I’m stumped with how to answer to myself.
But yeah, in Ciel’s case, in terms of traveling, in the worst case we can move freely through the sky.
My barrier can ward off most dangers and many electronics, starting with hair dryers, can be substituted for with sorcery or magic.
And for communication equipment, it’s probably not in her interest.

Also, there’s the issue of common sense.
Ciel and I have not had much firsthand experience of what’s common sense in this world.
There’s no basis for comparison.
That’s why, just based on Ciel’s experiences —— in addition to my existence —— life in Japan sounds more difficult.
In reality, both worlds have their own troubles and advantages if you ask me.

Still, since Ciel is calling Japan a tough place to live, on the flipside, that means that she’s comfortable with our current life.

I’m glad that I could provide this comfort for her.

『Honestly, I really want to hear about Ain’s life right now, but I’ll hold back for now.
So, this is the last thing I want to ask but… how should I interact with people from here on? 』
『Now that’s a familiar question.』

The same question back in Estoque, actually not quite.
Still, I don’t think there’s a strict right or wrong in interacting with people, so this is a really difficult question.
But somehow we managed to gain power, so I think it’s fine for Ciel to do as she likes.

When Ciel is exposed to danger, it’s my duty to protect her.
Still, just leaving the decision to Ciel isn’t good either.

In general, be like a mirror in regards to social interaction.』
『A mirror? What does that mean?』
『If you are shown kindness, you can repay them with kindness.
And if faced with malicious intent, you can just repay with that as well.』
『I see now.
So with Celia and Carol and the others, I show them kindness, right? 』
『That’s right, but you don’t have to think too much about it.
If anything happens, I’ll be there to help anyhow.』
『Then, how do I treat people that haven’t done anything to me in particular?』
『In those cases, you can decided based on your impression on them.』

I don’t know if there’s even anyone who can leave a good impression on Ciel at first glance, but that’s a different issue.
It’s not like I particularly want Ciel to be a good child.
More so a saint that would shower anyone and everyone with kindness.

『That, can I even do it?』
『That’s something that we’ll have to practice on.
Either way, we are secured enough that whatever happens, we can pull through.
If there comes a time when you can’t stand interacting with other people anymore, just staying in the manor and refusing outside interaction is not a bad option.
As long as we help out in the mansion, I think Fii-kaasama will allow it.
At worst, the idea you had some time ago, living hidden in the middle of a forest, might be good too.』
『Are you alright with that, Ain?』
『If it’s with you Ciel, I don’t mind staying anywhere.』
『Fufu, me too.
As long as Ain is there, I can live anywhere.』

The only thing I want is nothing else but Ciel’s happiness.
If Ciel is happy, then I’m sure that I would be happy.
That’s why, as long as Ciel prioritizes herself first in her decisions, I’ll happily agree with it.

『Right, I understand, Ain.
Thank you for answering my questions.』
『Don’t mind it, I’ll always have an open ear for whatever you want to ask.
And I’ve recalled something to talk with you about too, Ciel.

『Oh? What is it? What is it?』

Since it sounds like Ciel is done with her questions, I shifted the topic to settle my side of the discussion and Ciel sat up straight, ready to listen.

『Do you still remember the letter of introduction we received from Viviana-san?』
『Oh right, that did happen.
If I’m not wrong, it was so we could get her family’s support, was it?』
『That’s right.』
『In that case, we don’t need it anymore, right?』
『While that might be true, I think we should at least tell Viviana-san what has happened since we last met.』
『Social interaction, right.
In that case, why don’t we go to the Hunter Guild tomorrow?
After all, we haven’t even gotten our A-Rank card since we were following Fii.』

Now that she mentioned it, that is true.
While I’m impressed about how carefree Fii-kaasama actually is, I’m starting to enjoy my own absentmindedness.

『Then, why don’t we look for Celia-san first? Celia is a guild personnel, so I think she’ll be the easiest to find.』
『Would it better for you to talk to her when we find them, Ain?
Since I have never had any direct interaction with either Carol or Celia, right?』
『Come to think of it, that is true.
Still, please be the one to interact with them, Ciel.
If needed, I will talk to them as well, but it should be alright to explain our situation to the two of them.
…… And to be honest, maybe they’ve already had a realization of their own.
I do remember giving them a hint, after all.

I actually don’t remember what I said, to be honest.
I mean, it’s already been 2 years since.
Ciel’s mind is excellent but in that case, I was the one using it and memory storage probably doesn’t happen in the brain but rather the soul or something.
That’s why, me being absentminded and forgetful is my own fault.

『Celia and Carol should be okay for me to practice social interaction with, after all.
There aren’t any things that I need to keep a secret, right?』
『Not that I can think of.』

And you did manage to talk to the members of the Fools’ Gathering after all.
As I was about to say that, Ciel was starting to nod off, so ended our conversation here and began to sing a lullaby.


Hiya~! Aaaand that was a wholesome chapter.
And it seems like we might be meeting some familiar faces in the near future~

First of all, Ciel was once again cute over all.
From her slight insecurity, to then her wanting to hear more about Ain’s past, then being pouty because she thought that Ain wasn’t going to tell her about it, and then to curiosity once she heard about a world with no magic.
And then to Ain, being a bit self-aware this chapter.
Now, in my opinion, it’s a shared opinion between many readers, me included, that Ain has been… questionable, as a parent figure.
She’s doing her best, yes, but that doesn’t mean she’s good at it.
And Ciel herself, doesn’t really think of Ain as a parent figure, because she doesn’t know what a parent figure should be like outside of, just maybe, stories she’s read.
Her first opinion of Ain was, in fact, a hero that protects and rescues her which then quickly turned into “actually a frail princess trying her best that also needs protecting”.
Now, Fii might also be questionable as a parent because of the sense of detachment from her divinity but at least she has the experience and maturity to be a life mentor, hopefully for the both of them this time.
Ciel wasn’t the only one that needed an adult in this series, in my opinion.
Also, Ain being a bit more aware of her being a bit airheaded is so funny to me, for some reason.
