“Is it interesting?”

Cid, with his gaze fixed on the thick book, held a pen in his right hand and was transcribing something.

“I can’t say it’s interesting yet. The characters are a bit different from modern ones, so I haven’t deciphered them.”

“Deciphering? Is it such an old book?”

“Yes. It has illustrations in between instead of text, and there are encrypted long words that might be spells. . .”

It seemed difficult.

I stood up and peered at the book next to him, but the characters lined up were completely incomprehensible to me.

“I thought if I could replicate teleportation magic, I could travel to various places with Vi-sama.”

“Seems impossible?”

That’s a shame. I didn’t necessarily want to travel, but it seemed fun to explore the world with Cid and see different things.

“It seems impossible for the person who activates the magic to teleport. There is information of how  a mage would serve as the source of magical power, and there are methods written about unilaterally sending objects and people. Also, the person who wrote this seems to have a rather sloppy personality. There are places where words are omitted and the handwriting is messy.”

To be told that the handwriting is messy by Cid, who was always scolded by Onii-sama for his handwriting, it must be quite a level.

I couldn’t help but chuckle at his explanation.

“How much progress have you made in deciphering it?”

“I’ve only deciphered about one-fifth so far, I suppose.”

It seems like quite a long task.

I tried not to disturb him and prepared to return to bed.

“Vi-sama.”

“Hmm?”

When I was called and turned halfway, his hand, which had stood up from the chair, rested on my shoulder. 

His lips, which suddenly touched mine, were unexpectedly soft, and my thoughts came to a halt.

“Are you lonely because I’m always reading books?”

If he teasingly says something like that with a mischievous smile, I can’t honestly say that I’m lonely. In the first place, I don’t feel lonely. Just watching his back alone can entertain me for hours.

“I’m not lonely! I have. . .I have. . .things I need to do!”

Yes, I have things I need to do.

I have to research about kelp and consider whether it can be cultivated in the future.

“Because I might start a bento shop, I have to study kelp cultivation.”

“A bento shop?! Kelp?!”

Whether it’s the heroine or Cid’s mother, they seem to have such a connection to a bento shop, so I started to think that I should start a tamagoyaki bento shop.

“Well, because I’m no longer a noble.”

Currently, I have a large amount of money handed over by Onii-sama.

But I can’t burden Cid with troubles.

“I will work and hire Cid.”

“No, no, no, it’s strange if we get married.”

Well, in the values of this world, that’s probably true. But I can’t help it because I can’t get rid of the mentality of being an employer.

“What are you saying? I can’t live like a red kelp rotting away at the bottom of the sea, being protected and supported! “

“Becoming a kelp with offspring would also bring happiness, I’m sure.”

I was suddenly filled with love for kelp by Cid’s cheerful words. 

“What do you know about kelp with offspring?! They are fish eggs! They sacrifice their own bodies as vessels!”

“Please don’t refer to kelp with offspring as a sacrificial offering. It’s symbiosis, you know, symbiosis.”

“Symbiosis, in the end, humans will eat them, right?! Don’t worry, I won’t abandon Cid!”

“Wait, are there people who eat them? Also, am I also on the kelp side? Well, my hair is black.”

That’s not the issue.

Wait, what are we even talking about?

Startled, I tried to calm myself down and regain my composure.

“For now, I’ll make some tea. Would you prefer soup?”

When I asked, Cid said he would go, but I shook my head.

If he doesn’t decipher the book of teleportation magic soon, we won’t have time to spend together. . .That thought crossed my mind.

It seems that deep down, I am lonely.

“Then, please.”

“Ugh. . .!”

Cid showed a composed expression as if he saw through everything. I was overwhelmed by a tremendous sense of defeat.

When his face approached and made a smacking sound on my cheek, it made me flustered and confused.

When I pushed his chest with both hands to keep him away, he narrowed his eyes even more and his smile deepened.

Doesn’t this man know what it means to be considerate? He’s too good at poking at my embarrassment.

I know that glaring at him with teary eyes won’t have any effect, so I quickly turned my back and left the room.

“Sigh. . .I have to find a way to gain the upper hand.” 

Lately, I feel like I’ve been pushed around by Cid and teased too easily.

While making tea, I’ll think about countermeasures.
