When their dinner that evolved into a council of war was over, Mira and the rest returned to the Tower of Summoning. It was already past ten, so Mira yawned inundated by a sense of lethargy.

(I’ll just take a bath and head straight to bed now.)

Thinking that, Mira took her master key out to open the door of her room, but Mariana opened it ahead of Mira.

「Oh, thanks, Mariana.」
「It’s nothing.」

Mariana gave a short reply, making it seem unimportant. But her face showed how much she missed even doing something as simple as that for her master, her expression filled with happiness.

「I’ll go prepare some things for my summoning training tomorrow and then sleep. Good night Mira and Mariana.」
「Ohh, is there anything I could help you with?」
「Not really, it’s nothing big that could warrant your help. It’s just going over tomorrow’s schedule.」
「I see, good night then. I’ll leave the tower in your care then, though I still don’t know for how long.」
「You can count on me!」

Creos asserted confidently before heading to his office. Mira saw him off and then went straight to her changing room.

「You can go to your room to rest too, Mariana.」
「It looked like you were about to take a bath, so I’ll wash your back.」

After opening her dresser, Mira turned around and spoke to Mariana. She was sticking to Mira’s back, with a gaze that said it was the least she could do.

「You don’t have to go that far.」
「I’ll wash your back.」
「No, like I said…」
「I’ll wash your-」
「Okay okay. If you insist…」

Mira resigned herself, unable to break through Mariana’s strong will that refused to give up.

(If she just wants to wash my back I guess it’s nothing bad. It’s not like I can’t refuse if I really wanted to.)

Even if she was her aide, asking that much of her was something Mira felt uncomfortable doing, but since Mariana wanted that herself, there was no reason to deny her either. Mariana on the other hand, had amassed such a large need to serve her master that now she wanted to do even the most trivial tasks for Mira.

Mira took her Robe Set and coat off, while Mariana helped her from behind by folding the clothes and placing them on a shelf. When Mira began taking her inner one-piece dress off, Mariana helped her again, making the process much smoother than when Mira put it on. By then Mira was only wearing her pants, which also came off quickly and she entered the bathroom.

Mariana stayed behind sorting Mira’s clothes, after which she also reached to the cuffs of her own clothes.

In the end, Mira’s bath time was completely taken over by Mariana.

Mariana was almost naked as she fervently took care of everything. Knowing she did that only because of her immense trust, Mira forced herself to look away to avoid seeing her in a different way.

If she paid too much attention to the presence behind her, all of Mira’s nerves would begin going haywire while her ability to make thoughtful decisions decreased.

「I’ll wash the front too.」
「Okay.」

Mira agreed to anything Mariana said, eventually leading to Mariana washing Mira’s entire body.

She felt Mariana touching her back and arms, something colliding against her shoulder every so often, while she caught glimpses of pink skin through the corner of her eyes. The ticklish feeling of having her body washed stung her nerves and making her stiffen, while she barely managed to hold onto her sanity.

At the same time, Mira thought about how she never realized how cute Mariana was, almost forced to notice because of the situation.

When she was done, Mira said nothing of returning the favor, just mumbling something about being tired as she almost fled from the bathroom. In the dressing room, she found a thin and simple robe ready for her to change into.

(That’s Mariana for you…)

Mentally thanking Mariana’s thoughtfulness, Mira wore the robe and sat down on the couch in her room, sipping her wonted apple ale.

While fiddling with the soft robe, Mira’s thoughts began focusing on summoning magic. After a short while, Mariana came out of the bathroom, wearing a similar robe to Mira’s and her face slightly flushed.

「I’ll wash these before I sleep.」
「Oh, thank you.」

In her hands, Mariana held her maid uniform as well as Mira’s carefully folded Robe Set and underwear. Hearing the word ‘wash’ and Mariana holding clothes, Mira recalled her Sage’s Robe.

「That reminds me, I think I left a robe here the last time I came.」
「That one is clean and stored in my room. I’ll bring it here shortly.」

Saying that and bowing, Mariana left to wash those clothes and bring the already washed Sage’s Robe from her room.

(I guess I should get ready for bed now.)

Stretching once on the couch, Mira stood up.

After Mira was done with everything and had just lied down on her bed, Mariana returned, robe in hand.

「This should be it.」
「Thank you.」

Mira received the carefully folded Sage’s Robe. Then she noticed Mariana was holding one more thing. The outside was made of cloth and had many cute ornaments, with a cylindrical shape and it looked soft as she embraced it.

「What are you holding there?」
「A pillow.」

Mariana replied matter-of-factly. Mira’s guess had been spot on, but she still idiotically asked why she brought that when the reason was painfully obvious.

(This chapter is provided to you by Re:Library)

「Wait, you want to sleep here?」
「Yes.」
「But umm, sleeping together with a girl is a bit too… A man and a girl I mean.」
「But you’re a girl too now. I don’t think there’s really a problem?」
「Hmm.」

Put that way, it did not look as bad as before. But when Mira thought about it more, she knew sleeping with a cute girl like Mariana would result in a mental conflict with her lust all night long, and Mariana was someone she would never touch as she desired.

But Mariana’s point of view was different. She was ready to devote her soul and body to Mira. Her Fairy’s Divine Protection was like a physical manifestation of that feeling, Mira was not only someone she had to serve, but a partner in a whole different sense.

「Do you dislike sleeping in the same room as me?」

Mariana asked, her eyes looking down, in a slightly dejected and sad tone, while Mira’s brain still struggled trying to catch up with reality.

「Not at all. It’s just…umm.」

That was not the case, so Mira denied it immediately. It was more that she was ashamed of her lustful thoughts. If Mariana had told her about this beforehand, she would have been able to prepare mentally.

But now that she had said that much, she had also lost the opportunity to refuse Mariana’s wish. So Mira steeled her resolve and told Mariana it was okay to sleep with her, shifting her body a bit towards the left of the bed and moving her pillow.

Mariana placed her own pillow on the empty space beside Mira’s before gracefully slipping inside the bed.

「I’m so glad we could meet again.」

Mariana muttered with a quivering voice as they lay side by side. Hearing that, Mira turned around and noticed Mariana’s eyes were slightly moist.

(She’s been waiting for thirty years after all…)

Mariana had been selfish suddenly requesting to sleep together。The words ‘thirty years’ itself was short、on the other hand it was a long time to live through。

「Sorry」

Looking at the cloth with an embroidery of the paradise of gods、Mira apologizes again。In the next moment、Mariana touched Mira’s abdomen。

「What’s wrong?」

Feeling ticklish、Mira’s body twitches、as she turns her gaze towards Mariana。Mariana’s face had come close to her own。Towards Mira who seemed confused、Mariana placed her other hand in a different place。

(What……the heck is going on!)

(This chapter is provided to you by Re:Library)

(Say no to content thief!)

「Mira-sama……once more」

Mariana whispered into her ear、while she placed her right hand behind Mira’s abdomen。Closing her moist eyes、a faint stream of light leaked from the bed。

「so that’s what it was」

Grasping Mariana’s hand and placing it in front of their faces、she ignored the slightly disappointing unsure feeling、and felt relieved。Looking at the back of her hand with a bird pattern、they both exchanged gazes。

「What did you think it was?」

「U……、nothing in particular」

Mira quickly averted her eyes、while Mariana unintentionally laughed as she held onto her hands a little tightly。

In conclusion、the proof of their bond was strong。Mariana repeated the update many times、and every time she smiled joyfully。Mira however、reproached herself for having impure thoughts。

Mariana was pure。She genuinely missed her。After understanding、a feeling of cheerfulness broke through to Mira、as she felt relieved。

「Mira-sama」

「Yes?」

「Nothing」

Mariana responded with childish laughter。

「What」

「I wanted to try it once」

The two of them illuminated by the faint light、naturally conversed about things they liked and disliked until they fell asleep。

The following morning。Mira awoke refreshed。Getting up、her mind was clear、and recalling yesterday night’s events she blushed in embarrassment。

「Nu、Already awake?」

(This chapter is provided to you by Re:Library)

Mira turned her eyes to her surroundings and noticed the trace of Mariana’s pillow。Opening her menu she confirmed that it was slightly past 8:00am。

Lightly stretching、Mira overlooked the morning scenery from the window with sunlight pouring down。Narrowing her eyes、she was satisfied with bustling city streets filled with vitality、and noticed a faint sound coming from the living room。

It was the standard morning filled with excitement。Mira opened the door of the bedroom drawn to the sound。

「Good Morning、Mira-sama」

Mariana greeted her in the usual maid clothes preparing breakfast。Tableware set for two were placed on the table as a delicious smell wafted around。Mira had always longed for this kind of morning、and stood still forgetting about time。

「Is there something odd?」

Mariana asked Mira who was directing a heated gaze。Mira lost in her delusion、was pulled back into reality by her voice、

「Nu……No、it’s nothing。Morning」

Mira、avoiding eye contact、escaped into the bathroom。It could be said that she had harbored a delusion of a newly wedded life。Stripping off her robe、she went about her business。

As Mira left the restroom、Mariana had in her hands the clothes which had finished washing。

「Now then Mira-sama。Please change clothes」

Without any time to waste、Mira was first given underwear、which she put on。Taking off the robe、Mariana looked at Mira who had become nude and commented。

「By the way、Mira-sama。There were no chest undergarments、do you not wear them?」

The undergarments Mira wore at the bath and in the evening had only been panties。That alone was thought to be troublesome、so Mariana had inquired about it。

「I don’t know how to wear them。I have them only to have them」

「Do you have them right now?」

「Umu」

Mira briefly answered and took out a bag filled with extra clothes from her item list。The bag contained several articles of underwear for extra clothing、and was divided into two parts。Used and unused。

(I forgot to take out the ones to wash)

「Is this for washing?」

As soon as Mariana saw the bag、she immediately noticed and took out several pieces of undergarments packed disorderly。Everything was simply designed。

「Umu、shall I leave it to thou?」

「Of course」

Mariana answered naturally and simply folds it、a washing basket would be brought from the changing room。

「Is there anything else?」

Mira took out the Magical Girl style clothing、and threw them into the item box along with the Replica Sage Robe。It had been unnecessary、however the first was a present from the castle maids、and it was thought that a child would be pleased with the replica robe。

「I’ll leave this to you as well」

「Certainly」

After placing them into the basket、Mariana removed a few brassieres。

「The size……it seems good」

「It was from the castle maids」

Mira explained she had also been taught how to wear them once、but had honestly forgotten。Immediately、Mariana stood up with one of the brassieres in her hand。

「Then、I’ll teach you」

Mariana approached Mira with overwhelming pressure、and quietly received the lecture。

After being exposed to a sense of shame by Amaratti、Mira made sure to listen to Mariana’s explanation this time。Being shown an example once by Mariana、Mira tried several times herself whether or not she was able to learn。

She repeated it tens of several of times。Afterwards Mira acquired the technique of wearing brassiere’s。

Mira was delighted to learn something and expressed her thanks、while Mariana had gladly wore a smile on her face。

After putting on underwear it was past the time for breakfast、Mira sat down with Mariana at the table after putting on her magic robe set。

As Mira relaxed with a cup of hot chocolate after the meal、the tone of a bell begun to ring at a fixed interval in the room。The sound continued to repeat itself again and again。

「What is that sound?」

Mariana stood up at nearly the same time Mira asked her question、

「That is sound of the Magic Communication device。I’ll listen to it」

While talking、she opened the shelf next to the door、and inside was a similar magic device that Creos had used。As Mariana turned the lever on the device、a high pitch tone sounded out connecting the communication。

「This is the Tower of Summoning。I am the tower assistant Mariana」

「This is Alkite Castle’s assistant Slayman。Is Mira present?」

Through the magic communication、Mira had been told that the materials she brought were deciphered、the first destination became clear and to come to the castle for the finer details。

After the communication、Mariana lowered her eyes in loneliness。

「You’re going already?」

「When work is done I shall return immediately。Thanks Mariana。As long as I have thou、this is where I belong 」

Mira spoke with sincerity、recalling her embarrassing experience between the two of them last night。Mariana slightly nodded and drew in close to Mira、taking her right hand。With the Sprites Divine Blessing flickering、the both of them nodded and smiled to each other quietly。

Going back to the castle、it would be faster to fly。But because it was cold she needed warm clothing、and went together with Mariana to the warehouse to look around。Mariana picked out the most suitable coat。It was a surprisingly soft coat with snow-white fur。The size was for Dunbalf、it was much too large for her present figure、but if it were used only for wrapping her body to block the wind、it would be fine。

Next、the two of them went into the refining room、taking the sealed exploding magic stones that seemed useful for contracting summons along with sealed magic stones as a gift for Solomon。

(Honestly、with the convenience of communication magic、thou should tell me the location without the need to meet directly。What other reason is there for us to meet?。He would probably want the sealed magic stones)

Mira prepared what was necessary、while she about the possibilities。

「Now then、shall we?」

Creos urged them to hurry with a lively voice。

「I wanted to show you how to do your hair if possible」

「Umu……、that……it’ll have to wait until next we meet」

With numerous ribbons in Mariana’s hands、she spoke with disappointment。Finishing the last of the preparations、what kind of hairstyle would Mariana consider while doing Mira’s hair。Creos had come to the private room、because he would accompany her until the school。

The conversation using the magic communication was heard all throughout the top floor。It wasn’t made for private use、so it was convenient。Because of that、Creos heard that Mira would be heading towards the castle while in his work office、it had come at good timing so they would go together。

With slight shivers running down his back、Creos entered the elevator with Mira。

「Ok、Let’s go」

「Yes。Please return safely」

Mira spoke with slight embarrassment、as Mariana gently smiled。Creos tilted his head in wonder、as to why the two of them had such an atmosphere from last night until today。

In front of the Tower of Summoning。A smaller carriage than normal was placed aside、along with a horse that was unhitched。It was exactly the size to fit one person、it was made of wood and metal、and had a door and window。

Creos stood before the carriage、

「Mira-sama。Using Aizen Faldo will not be good」

After warning her again、he motioned her towards it。

「I know……」

Despite the sulking、Creos summoned something within the sky。

【Summon:Garuda】

As the magic dispersed with a gust of wind、a large ominous bird which shined in the colors of a rainbow appeared on the carriage。

「Hou……。Garuda huh? So thou will be riding on Garuda」

「No、I will be riding on this。Garuda will be flying with the wagon」

Creos boastfully replied to Mira while looking at the bird that was bigger than a house as he opened the door to the carriage。In a sense、a carriage specifically for the sky。It could also be a bird-mobile? Because it flew in the sky it was hard to place it as a flying car、however Mira was excited。

「ho hou! So that’s how it is。With this、the coldness in the sky and getting having a sore rear end will not happen!」

Inside was a small table along with a spacious seat、the workmanship seemed to guarantee comfort。

Mira jumped into the carriage thoroughly enjoying the comfortable seat repeating a word to herself、「Good、Good」。

「Although it is for one person、because Mira-sama is small、perhaps I can enter as well。Would that be fine?」

With Mira’s circumstances、the feeling of being a father figure welled up inside Creos as he smiled kindly。

「Are you fine with it!?」

「ehh、perhaps it will be alright」

Mira’s innocent face glittered、the answer was that Creos would somehow enter the wagon。Mira cheerfully moved to the corner、and space enough for exactly one person was possible。Creos sat down、「it doesn’t seem to be a problem」and shut the door。

「To the Capital、Lunatic Lake」

When Creos tapped on the wall、the sound of beating wings resounded。

「Is it flying?、Is it flying!」

Mira excitedly looked around the surrounding flowers that streamed in the wind from the window。And as large gusts of wind beat several times、the scenery of everything become smaller and smaller、as the light feeling of floating was felt。Mira stood up and peeped out the window、as they rose higher and higher with every flap of it’s wings。

Creos was unable to feel the dignified atmosphere of Dunbalf、but watching Mira’s back、a desire of wanting to protect her sprouted。

「oh oh! The tower has already become so small。This is great、great。How can I obtain one of these?」

「This wagon? This……」

Mira separated herself from the window、and eagerly asked a question。Creos had a craftsmen from the castle make it、so it was possible to get the same product if necessary。

She was enthusiastic about it、Mira took out two Apple au Lait’s and handed one to Creos、they would enjoy a relaxed journey together。
