Chapter 23: Special child
“I’ve decided. I’m going on a diet.”
Finne declared after the tragedy of the weighing scale incident that followed her binge eating.
In her right hand, she held a package of cookies.
[So, what are those cookies for?]
“It’s a reward cookie for myself for declaring a diet!”
ghost thought to himself, (Sigh, it doesn’t look good.)
ghost decided not to say anything, knowing that there are things in this world that cannot be helped even if you say something.
“However, exploring the former head’s mansion was quite difficult. I never expected that illegal drug production would continue in such a large underground facility.”
[Even now that the former head has been caught, it seems that his subordinates are still active.]
“For me, it was lucky because I was able to relieve stress comfortably.”
[My beloved disciple is too reckless, and it baffles me.]
However, Finne didn’t seem to mind and continued.
“But encountering my husband was quite a pinch. He had taken various precautions, and I could have been caught if I made one mistake.”
[So you’re amazing for not making mistakes there.]
“That’s because I learned from an excellent Master.”
It was a gentle world.
The teacher and student exchanged shy glances before resuming their discussion.
“The problem is where the 《Mirror of Cucumericulus》 is. It’s said to be an all-purpose wish machine that can grant any wish.”
[If someone is trying to activate it, we need to find it quickly and stop them. We don’t know what could happen if it’s misused.]
“That’s right. We need to build up some momentum and hit it hard, savoring the feeling.”
[Your motivation for action is too unique.]
Finne had a face that seemed like it was nothing out of the ordinary.
(If she wasn’t born a noble, she would probably be the queen of bandits or something. . .)
It is clearly far from her personality as a noblewoman.
Even though she has been alone and hardly influenced by anyone, she must have done something like a boss monkey feared as a tyrant of the forest in her past life.
(She’s a special child, really.)
Come to think of it, it has always been like that.
Every time demon beasts appeared in the neighborhood, she would get excited and say, “A dangerous demon beast that scares the villagers?! Great! I can hit it as hard as I can!” and unilaterally beat them up, ignoring all of the ghost’s advice.
“Strategy? Isn’t it enough to just punch them straight on and knock them out?!”
That expression she said with a feeling of really not understanding is still vivid in the ghost’s memory.
Although she loved magic, it was amazing how he raised such a wild horse to become such a refined wizard.
(I did a good job, even if I say so myself, while thinking about future plans.)
[We should try to find out about the movements of the former head faction nobles. There should be others working in the shadows too.]
“That’s fine. It’s good to meet opponents you can hit comfortably.”
[I see. If you say so, then I guess so.]
The ghost said in an emotionless voice.
[I hope you can attend parties attended by the former head faction nobles.]
“I understand. I’ll talk to my husband about it.”
Finne narrowed her eyes and said.
“Now, wait for me, corrupt nobles! I’ll blow you away with my justice punch and relieve my stress!”
(Nobody would ever dream that this seemingly quiet child has such a wild personality.)
Having been confined to a mansion in the borderlands for a long time, she looks like a sheltered young lady at first glance. The ghost sighed as he gazed at her.
