aid was「We’re Disappointing Princess buddies.」as she delightedly smiled.
I was confused with her words but since she’s so happy about it, I just replied『That’s right.』

Ciel safely becoming a misfortune princess, moreover the target job dance princess, was a godsend, to be honest.
A dance princess is a job that allows the performance of all dances.
Other than dancing for entertainment, it even allows the execution of ritual dances that can achieve feats such as summoning a rain with a rain dance.
Because of that, it’s not as discriminated upon as the song princess.
And since there are also dances, such as the sword dance, which is performed with weapons; it’s not entirely helpless in combat.

However, to pull out the dance princess’ full potential, a suitable stage needs to be set.
Particularly, they absolutely need music.
When fighting monsters, as long as there is music, they have the potential to exhibit equal or even more fighting capacity than the combat jobs.
Still, to begin with, you can’t bring musicians and instruments to a battle.
And even on summoning rain, since a Water Sorcerer and the like can resolve a drought with only sorcery, there aren’t many particular reasons to gather people and prepare a stage.

For these reasons, it’s been touted as a disappointing princess.
However, this exact job was our target.
Even if we can’t use it to the fullest, it has some potential for battle.
Meanwhile, its reputation should be enough to make that man give up on us.
Most of all, I’m certain that Ciel already had a high chance of becoming a dance princess.
After all, Ciel has been dancing to my songs from when she was still a baby.
Lately, her beautiful dances almost make me forget to continue singing my song.
I didn’t expect our daily routine which began from the day she was born to help us this way.
Still, thanks to that, Ciel is now a dance princess that can also use sorcery.

Me being a song princess was an unexpected result, but it’s not really a problem; and depending on the situation, we can use it for our escape.
In the meantime, we probably need to confirm Duke Rispelgia’s next move.
We also thought of hiding the paper used to identify jobs so we can sell it after escaping, but the mask-faced butler took it away not soon after.


A few days later, Duke Rispelgia came before Ciel.
The duke brought with him an untidy pig-like man.
He isn’t any shorter that the duke, but his body is almost twice as wide and his round face was drenched in grease.
Even when I was still in Japan, it was the look of a person that I don’t want to deal with; and now, I don’t even want to see him in my sights.
Is this what people mean by being physically repulsive?
The fact that the pig man was looking at Ciel’s body with a sleazy gaze only added to my disgust.

「Is this girl the “Dance Princess”?」
「It is.
I took her in, but she can barely use sorcery.
With that, I don’t have any use of her.」
「So you would like to sell her to me?」
「You have money on you, don’t you?」
「Well I certainly do.
However, with her being of this quality, I’m not quite sure if this is enough…」

As he was flattering the duke, the pig man extends three fingers and took a glance at the duke’s expression.
The duke audibly snorts and scowls at the pig man.

「You’ve brought twice as much, haven’t you? I’ll take that price.」
「Well in that case, isn’t twice too much when following the procedure?」
「The remaining sum is for my silence.
You won’t say no, would you?」

The duke took out a sheet of paper.
Since I can faintly feel magic power from the letters written on it, I assume that it was written using a special ink.
The duke then added something to its contents and handed it to the pig man.
I’m really glad that they think we can’t use much sorcery.
Usually, nobody would think that someone who became a dance princess would actually be well-versed in sorcery.
After receiving the sheet of paper, the man quickly skimmed its contents.
And like the duke, he wrote something on it with a wide smile.
They then placed the paper on the side table, then they both proceeded to take out knives and cut their own fingers.

As the blood from both of them landed on the paper, the written letters begin to light up and rush towards the both of them.

This might be some form of magic.
Using a special ink and paper, they offered magic power and blood to create an unbreakable contract.

「With this, the transaction is complete.
Hurry up and take this away.」
「Then, I shall excuse myself.」

The pig man lowered his head and left the room.
In his place, the mask-faced butler came in and his master immediately juts his chin, as though commanding him something.
The butler immediately approaches Ciel and, just as one would carry heavy luggage, he carried Ciel on his shoulder as he walked out of the room.
Then, after exiting the mansion, he placed Ciel on the back of what seems to be the pig man’s wagon and shackled her limbs.

I immediately felt nostalgia from the touch of the shackles, but it’s not the time for this nonsense.
This whole situation was unexpected; but in short, the Rispelgia household sold Ciel to this pig man.
The duke’s goal is most likely money.
After all, he needs funds for his experiments, so he’s probably using Ciel to compensate for the money he lost on her.
Then, what is this man’s goal? I can think of quite a lot.
Will he be reselling her as a slave, using her as a maidservant, or perhaps as a toy?

Still, at least he doesn’t seem to have as much power as the duke’s household, so I’m sure that it’ll be easier to escape from him.
Or rather, this might be it.
Depending on the strength of the escorts, we probably have the best situation to execute one of the plans I’ve imagined.
However, it’s going to be risky.

『Ciel, can you do something about the restraints?』
「It’ll take some time, but it’s not a problem.
After all, it doesn’t seem to be the type that seals magic power.
     They’ve underestimated us just because I became a dance princess, right?」

Just as Ain planned, Ciel praised me so; but it would have been quite bad if it were the magic sealing ones.
Nonetheless, it turned out well for us.
With this, we’ve broken through our first barrier to freedom.

『I have a way that could help us smoothly escape from this situation, but how should we go?
     It’s extremely risky and, in the worst case scenario, might kill us too but……』
「If Ain doesn’t tell me what it is, I can’t really answer, you know?」
『That’s true……』

So after hearing my escape plan, Ciel ponders for a bit and gave my plan a go, replying「Let’s try it out.」
