Chapter 65 – Intermission (The Maid) ②
―― Well, if I win the tournament… Let me feel your boobs!
At that time, I never imagined things would end up this way.
―― I see. Alright. If You Can Win Little man, then! Then let’s play with the puppies all day!
Request from Little man for the tournament.
As an older sister, I agreed to a little obscene reward with a smile, if that would motivate Little man.
But when I returned to my room, I…
―― Pyaaaaaaaah, t-this is so not good! What did I agree to!? B-Breasts and Little man. Th-This will earn me a fiery scolding from the Master and Madam!?
I was writhing with my face buried in a pillow, after diving into the bed, my feet were fluttering.
―― Then, but no way, Lil’ Earth made such a request…… but, if it were to happen… I won’t be able to maintain my reason…… what shall we do? Somehow, I might push him down and go beyond that…. No no no, that kind of education should wait at least until Little man graduates from the Academy…. But I… 1
I panicked because I agreed.
However, as I continued to agonize myself, I suddenly saw Little man working hard in the garden outside the window.
―― Aaaah, HopScotch! HopScotch!! Hop, HopScotch!!
Little man was doing unusual training using ladders.
At first glance, it seemed like he was playing, but the amount of sweat and his facial expressions conveyed determination.
Perhaps, I found a Little man who was trying to break his shell in an attempt to change something.
After seeing that, I was in agony but gradually regained my composure…
―― Huh… Let’s buy a new bra, something risqué…. 2
No way, I couldn’t tell anyone about what had happened.
So, I couldn’t imagine it at the time.
―― Don’t! Father! Mother! Demon King killed, uncle, aunt, grandpa, grandma, everyone! Killed by the Great Demon King!!
I still can’t stand it.
I’ve said that to Little man.
I ruined all of Little man’s efforts.
Aiming for the match, Little man figured out various training regimen and persisted to face the big stage.
My words ruined everything.
No, it’s not ruined.
I snatched them away.
All of Little man’s days and his place in the world up to today.
By what means, I don’t know how Little Man used that technique.
But, I shouldn’t have gotten so distraught… the more I think back on it, the more I can’t forgive myself.
Lord Hiro and Lady Mamu are the benefactors of my life. Little man is their treasure, and more important to me than my life…. than my life? Trivial. How trivial I am.
Their son is more important than my life, which mouth can possibly say such a thing?
It is a sin that makes me want to carve this body, such as losing myself to my trauma rather than my feelings for Little man.
Actually, I want to be beheaded right now.
But, not yet.
Even if Little man doesn’t want to, until I see him again…
“It’s been a long time since I last prepared for a journey, not just a trip…”
To do what I have to do.
Stuff everything into a huge backpack. Clothes, daily necessities, cookware, food, medical equipment sets, and weapons.
My room, which was always in order, is now a mess, but there is no time to clean up.
I’ll leave the room as it is to chase after Little man.
As I was packing what I needed in my backpack, I saw a box I was keeping in the cupboard.
It’s my treasure chest.
But now, the mere sight of the treasure-chest is enough to kill me.
“Sadiz! Are you ready?”
“Excuse me, what…huh? That’s…”
At that time, Madam, who had only made simple preparations, came to the room, looked at my hand and tilted her head.
My treasure, which was kept secret from Madam.
I opened the lid of the treasure chest, with much sorrow.
There were many small items, toy rings and other accessories stored within.
“These… were gifts that Lil’ Earth gave me for my birthday and the Academy’s entrance celebration, and so on….”
When he was much younger than he is now, he was a little shy as he handed me a present.
Each time, I was desperately holding back the urge to hug and kiss Little man.
“That boy, when it came to you… he was seriously in love.”
How Little man thinks of me. I deflected that thought because I’m always completely charmed without meaning to.
“But even so, neither I nor Hiro have even considered those feelings, and believed that he and the princess should be tied together… such a heartless story, isn’t it….”
Yes. So did I.
I thought it would be fine if I could be by his side as a maid.
Rather, it is true that the marriage of the Princess with Little man would satisfy many people.
So, even when I entered adolescence, instead of responding to Little man I was leading him on in an insinuating manner.
“Hey, Sadiz… obligation to the surroundings aside…… actually, if it was to be you and Earth… what would you do?”
“I might have run away with him.”
“I don’t have the qualifications anymore.”
When I answered that, Madam also held her head down with a complicated smile.
“…… Really…… what was I doing, I….. I didn’t see anything. Nothing about my own child…… Nothing…”
I’m not conceited, but I should be Little man’s first love.
If Little man was having such thoughts about me even when he was ‘at that age’, I might have abandoned all reason and my self-control I had so far.
There are certain books with processed binding on the bookshelf. [The 100 Ways to Lead the Younger Man], [The Maiden’s Preparations for the First Experience without Inconvenience], really, those are mine… also…. on the shelf below it…… Little man’s collection…… 3
―― Little man… under the bed. The double bottom of the desk drawer, in the ceiling, and the Master’s study as he cannot come home lately…. Hmm, did you think you could hide it? Little man. How naive!
―― Gah…. How did you find out…
――Lil’ Earth. I always have tools to see traces of someone breaking into a room, including anti-robbery measures, so, I can instantly see if anything in the room has been moved, even slightly, compared to the previous day… Even, a mountain of buried treasure such as these. What are you using your pocket money for? I mean, at Little man’s age, it’s not legal~.
―― you’re wrong, no, this is… er……
―― Making out with older busty maids that appear in these books…… Turn a sadistic woman into a sow…… Do you want to do this, Little man? I fear the future, Yoyoyo. 4
――Th-That’s, d-different, fantasies that only exit in books.
――Oh, is that so? That’s too bad. I’m getting more and more interested in this, and if Little man wishes…
――Eh!? Really!? Oh, really?
―― Dream~ on ♪
――Huh~…… all the same, Little man is in need of a little scolding ~
A variety of ero-books that Little man, after hitting puberty, tried to possess at every opportunity without giving up.
Some were about seniors, some maids, other related to sadistic women, and all suggestive of lewdness. 5
I persistently lectured Little man, as he kneeled on his soles bearing a blushed face, and I burned all the books…. well pretended to. I kept them so that when the Little man clears the ‘age’, they would be returned to him.
And then, for the harmless, inoffensive titles, the princess… 6
“I… only did things that made Little man detest me…”
“Is that so?”
Yes, it has always been so.
I play around, tease, mislead, and today…… I did that.
“I’m really no good… I’m…”
“Yes, we are…”
With a bitter smile at each other, I carry my backpack.
“But… that routine was my happiness too…… Making fun of Little man…… so cute… But for Little man, I might simply be an annoyance…. Even if Little man didn’t want it anymore…… at least…… once again, just to meet and talk… say farewell in this way…… That’s it!”
Yes, now it’s more about action than depression.
“Let’s go, Mamu.”
“Yes. The princess will be waiting…. Even if it is…… I didn’t think the princess could come up with such a bold strategy….
Yes, it was all the princess’s plan.
An idea from the princess who rushed into this mansion in search of Little man who had disappeared.
[S1]Okaaayyy! So that was on the table this whole time…..
[S2]I demand Fan Art!! Rule 34 this right now!!!!
[S3]Aaaannnd she was doing research! Hold up! For all her teasing him about being a virgin, doesn’t this mean she’s still one too?
[S4]Considering who that ‘future’ would have involved….
[S5]Hey, the guy has a type!!
[S6]And she still had the gall to call him out on it. Pretty sure the princess has amassed a collection as well.
Wanna give a quick shout-out to all my Patrons for the overwhelming support. It really does mean the world to me.
