When I woke up, it was already slightly past noon When I went to the dining room, I saw Silva preparing lunch with great timing as usual . It seems he knew that I up, and when I asked, he only responded, as usual, that it was because he is a butler .
It was useless to respond to him, so I let it be . When I was eating in silence, I sighed as I heard the sound of rain-drops splashing around the house
Then, I suddenly remembered . I wonder if Mikazuki is alright . . Mikazuki should be experiencing this weird phenomena for the first time . . It’s bad if she panics and fall to the lake .
Because I used
, the word I placed on Mikazuki disappeared, and I can’t pinpoint her location . I think I will go check it out after finishing the meal .
Even though I can vaguely feel the location, I tried to ask Silva where the animal feeding ground is, it seems to be at the back of the mansion . After that, I quickly went out of the mansion and went to search for Mikazuki .
sfx : Zazazazazaza (Rain)
Even though it was raining in the vicinity, it was strange how it didn’t rain here . This is really a different world, logic can’t be used here . While thinking that, I continue to walk .
Just like Silva said, there’s something like a shed behind the mansion . There, I saw something like a chicken with plump wings . Nearby, i saw Mikazuki sitting calmly while with her eyes close .
As for why she seems so relax, it was because there’s a person grooming it .
“Kui !” (Mikazuki)
When Mikazuki realize Hiiro’s presence, Mikazuki called over Hiiro many times as if he is trying to get noticed by him . But, unlike Mikazuki, the other person is wearing a stiff face and looking at him .
That person was the one that he fought last night . (TL Note : Not that kind of “fight” )
“I-I-I am S-Sorry !” (Shamoe)
That person who’s confused and keep apologizing is no other than this mansion’s maid, Shamoe, who certainly caused some trouble with him last night, Shamoe .
“Kui ?” (Mikazuki)
Mikazuki confused why Shamoe is apologizing to it’s master, and looking at back and forth between each of them .
“E-E-Ehm . . ” (Shamoe)
Shamoe was panicking and don’t know what to say . Watching such a scene, Hiiro only shrug his shoulder in amazement .
“I won’t just let it slide you know ? Since, I almost died last night . ” (Hiiro)
That night, if I didn’t resisted, I would certainly died . Even if I survived, I would recieve a significant injury . I won’t just let it slide like that .
Hearing that, she felt really bad . She’s shaking while holding both hand in front of her chest . She thought that Hiiro might be thinking of revenge .
Of course, Hiiro don’t have such an intention . Even though last night, he drew his katana because of the danger, he didn’t intend to kill people that are not hostile .
“Can you remember?” (Hiiro)
“Y-Y-Yes !” (Shamoe)
“That’s troublesome huh . . ” (Hiiro)
If she didn’t remember anything, she wouldn’t feel guilty . But, looks like she was conscious during the fight .
Since she can’t do anything but watch, she’s probably suffering since she has a weak heart .
“I-I am truly sorry ! Shamoe have done such unforgivable action !” (Shamoe)
She keeps apologizing over and over .
It’s true that she caused it, but Hiiro can only sympathize with her . Watching a girl apologizing over and over again, mad Hiiro feel bad .
“What are you doing with this droolingbird ?” (Hiiro)
“Eh ? A droolingbird ?” (Shamoe)
“Kui Kui Kui Kui Kui !” (Mikazuki)
Mikazuki was licking her master’s face as if she have not seen him for days .
“Eit, I always told you to stop that, didn’t i ?” (Hiiro) (TL Note : Ice cream !)
“Kuiiiiii !” (Mikazuki)
Mikazuki shook it’s head as if refusing . Then, Hiiro said,
“This is why . ” (Hiiro)
After forcefully pushing Mikazuki away, he show his face full of droll to Shamoe .
“I-I see…” (Shamoe)
Understanding that, she gave him something like a handkerchief from her pocket to Hiiro . Hiiro obediently took it and wiped his face .
“Then, What were you doing with this guy ?” (Hiiro)
“O-Oh, That’s right, I was brushing it . ” (Shamoe)
“Is that so ? Looks like, this guy have given you some trouble . ” (Hiiro)
Mikazuki bent it’s neck as if apologizing .
“N-No, it’s nothing ! I can only do this much ! A-And, there was yesterday’s accident . I’m sorry because I wasn’t able to apologize right away !” (Shamoe)
Looks like she intended to apologize last night . But since she can’t find him, she tried to atone it by helping Mikazuki . She tried to apologize indirectly . If she have prepared her heart, of course she would apologize right away, but seeing Hiiro come in suddenly, her head was spinning .
Seeing this girl trembling before him, Hiiro fold his arm and say,
“What are you so afraid of ?” (Hiiro)
“E-Ehm, T-That is . . ” (Shamoe)
Hiiro don’t care about race differences . That’s why he didn’t know the problem of a half .
“That’s because, half is a detested existence . . ” (Shamoe)
What she’s saying is, not only in here, a Half is a taboo . That’s why they got despised by all race . (TL Note : I can see a flag in the distance . . Damn you Hiiro ! ) That’s why . .
“Unable to use both Magic and
That’s right, the characteristic of a Half, is that they inherited the physcial characteristic from both race, but they didn’t inherit the unique skill from them . Which is Magic and
in this case . Since the blood cancel each other, they can’t used .
It’s the same with a cross-breed of
. Unable to use magic, the halfs are considered as a Taboo and a symbol of disaster .
Of course, cross-breeding is against the law . If the child is found, it will either get banished or eliminated .
Shamoe’s mother which is an
was prepared for this when she gave birth to her . Her Father which is a
decided to search for a way to cross the continent and move away from his family . He told his wife and daughter that he will find it and definitely return .
But, when he’s gone, the mother and young Shamoe lived in the shed the the father built . The
nearby, notice this, and when they found out that Shamoe is a Half, they got banished .
They had nowhere to go and the father still hasn’t returned . Because they have made a promise to wait here, they didn’t want to leave this place .
Even though that the
disagreed with this, no one touched them . But, sneers and disdain are a everyday thing . No one even bother to look at them and treat them as if it is natural to hate them .
(TL Note : SHAMOEEEEE !! TT_TT )
Even though young Shamoe is fine, the mother’s heart is gradually broke . When Shamoe turned to 5 years old, the mother can’t bear it any longer and collapsed . Then, she died silently after… . (TL Note : Ugh… . . )
Shamoe is now alone, and don’t know what to do . Seeing that her mother has passed away, the
nearby use this chance to get rid of her . They burnt down the shed that her father built .
After she had nowhere to return, she don’t know where to go . She have no choice but to wander the continent, but she can’t use Magic . This continent is not a kind place for a young girl .
She was unable to gather enough food . She don’t know how to find a river to drink from . She was slowly dying . Reaching her limit, when she was about to accept her fate, something is looked down at her .
“That was Ojou-sama . ” (Shamoe)
She didn’t wear frightened face anymore, a small gentle smile can be seen .
“That time, she lend her hand to me, and it’s Super Cool !! Ah~ Kya Kya~” (Shamoe) (TL Note : Shit . YURI ALERT !!)
“Hah ?” (Hiiro)
Shamoe had a sparkling eyes and approached Hiiro .
“She said to me who was lying on the ground, “If you want to live, come with me !” , Then… then, she employed me on this mansion ! Ojou-same didn’t even hate halfs ! I’m very grateful to Ojou-same ! ” (Shamoe)
As if she forgot about Hiiro, she didn’t realize she was approaching Hiiro . When she noticed, she quickly fall back and hang her head .
“E-Eh, I-I’m Sorry ! I-I-I have shown such indecent thing ! Argh, Shamoe is such an Idiot ! Idiot ! ” (Shamoe)
While Hiiro is thinking that he has seen scene like this before, Shamoe knocked her head over and over on the animal shed’s wall . Hiiro shrugged .
“Come on, I don’t mind it . So, that’s why you are working here huh ? Aside from that, is it okay to tell me that story ? I’m just a guest you know ?” (Hiiro)
Whether it’s Liliyn or her parents, they should be a precious memory to her . Hiiro doubt Shamoe because she told such a story to a mere traveler . She smiled a little and shook her head .
“I-I heard from Silva that Hiiro is not a person that care about races . ” (Shamoe)
(That Hentai-jiji, saying unnecessary thing . ) (Hiiro)
Hiiro clench his fist in his heart .
“Th-That’s why, even though it’s an ugly story, I-I wanted you to listen . ” (Shamoe)
“Is that so ? If you’re fine with it, then it’s alright . I have no intention to reveal it to anyone anyway . Let me praise you for having a good eye . ” (Hiiro) (TL Note : Good eye as in good enough to know Hiiro’s a good guy . )
“Th-Thank you so much !” (Shamoe)
Even though Hiiro was boasting, Shamoe still thanked him .
(Mu, if it’s Ossan, he would have fight back, but somehow she’s too obedient that it’s a bit annoying . ) (Hiiro)
Somehow, I miss how Arnold responds . .
“Well, whatever, Oh, that’s right, i will call you Dojimeido (Clumsy Maid), hear me Dojimeido ?” (Hiiro)
Shamoe was dumbfounded .
“Dojimeido, of the full-moon night . ” (Hiiro)
Hearing that, she sighed .
“Even though you can’t control your own power, don’t attack me next time okay ?” (Hiiro)
“E-Eh ? I-I’m sorry !” (Shamoe)
“You better search for a way to control it . Go ask the red loli . She should know some way since she lived for such a long time . ” (Hiiro)
“A-Actually, I already asked and have been practicing it . ” (Shamoe)
“It didn’t go well, huh . . ” (Hiiro)
“Y-Yes . . ” (Shamoe)
Shamoe dropped her shoulder and glanced at Mikazuki .
“Well, I guess it’s fine as long as you’re trying . ” (Hiiro)
“Eh ?” (Shamoe)
“At least, I like people who try their best even if they failed . ” (Hiiro)
“Eh ?” (Shamoe)
Hearing Hiiro’s word, Shamoe blushed .
“Fueeeeee !?” (Shamoe) (TL Note : FIRO-TAN !!)
Hearing the sudden scream, Hiiro frowned .
“E-Eh, I-It’s just . . W-What do you mean by “Like” ? Fueeeee !” (Shamoe)
Shamoe put both of her hand on her cheeks . Hiiro is confused why she’s so surprised . Hiiro frowned and stare at her .
(Wh-What should i do ~~~~ ??? He-He likes Shamoe ? That means, That means . . !) (Shamoe)
Shamoe’s eyes are rolling and something like a steam is floating from her head while her face is red like a tomato .
(What a weird girl, everyone on this mansion is a weirdo . ) (Hiiro) (TL Note : Donkan Protagonists are Donkan . )
Unable to understand Shamoe’s wild delusion, Hiiro looked up at
and wondering when the rain will stop .
