Chapter 1-16 : Sixty Times More Magical Power
Mylia wondered what Titania meant by “After watching your house, I can tell somehowー”
「…Master, you know the situation of my house? But how?」(Mylia)
「By using magic, of course. I told you we can do almost anything with magic, didn’t I?」(Titania)
「From here… to my house…? Magic is amazing…」(Mylia)
「Well, yeah, but it’s not good to expect too much of magic because there are strengths and weaknesses. Anyway, let’s talk over a cup of tea. I’ll also serve you some cookies.」(Titania)
Mylia jumped in joy.
But then, Chloe’s face popped out into her mind.
She shook her head and looked down.
「Master, I’m sorry, but I can’t enjoy your cookies while Chloe onee-chan is now working hard… I really want to eat them, though…」(Mylia)
「Children like you shouldn’t worry about such things.」(Titania)
Titania stroked Mylia’s head and smiled.
Mylia’s hair was silky and fluffy.
「Mmm~ This feels great~」(Titania)
「Master? Did you say something?」(Mylia)
「No, just talking to myself.」(Titania)
Titania now understands why Chloe often stroked Mylia’s head.
「Anyway, you don’t need to hesitate. It’s your kind Chloe onee-chan we’re talking about. I’m sure she’d be happy if you’re happy. You think so too, right?」(Titania)
「Ah…! I can picture her telling me not to worry about her and eat the cookies.」(Mylia)
「You should think more about your own happiness. Being considerate is a good thing, but it will only be rude to someone else if you refuse their hospitality.」(Titania)
「Is that so?」(Mylia)
「Yeah. But… you’re strangely mature for an eight-year-old child. Could it be that you have divine protection? Well, anyway, you should live more the way you want from now on.」(Titania)
Mylia nodded obediently and kept Titania’s words in her heart.
（To live the way I want…）
In her previous life, she always took care of her good-for-nothing father.
Her only pleasure was talking with her grandmother.
Even though Mylia was told to live the way she wanted, she couldn’t imagine it right away.
While thinking about how she would live freely, Mylia sent her gaze at the cookies.
（I wish I could bring some cookies home for Chloe onee-chan… but if someone found out, I wouldn’t be able to make an excuse…）
She gave up on bringing some cookies home.
If her family kept an eye on her, she wouldn’t be able to move around freely.
「So, can you tell me about your family?」(Titania)
Prompted by Titania, Mylia began to talk about the Atwood family’s situation.
Titania’s expression became more fierce as she listened to Mylia.
The lord was a selfish, muscle-brained man, the lady was a pushover, the eldest daughter was a depressed woman, the second daughter was an evil woman who always bullied Mylia.
Mylia also told Titania that she would be forced to marry a poor merchant in the future.
Now that Titania knew that Mylia lived in a terrible family that even the World Tree would wither from how terrible it was, she looked up at the ceiling with her long ears drooping.
「ーーTherefore, I made a plan to get out of the house and enroll in the Adrashelm Royal Girls’ Academy when I turn twelve.」(Mylia)
「Hee, so there’s a school like that in this kingdom. Un! That’s a great plan!」(Titania)
Titania seemed to like the plan.
「Leaving this region using a formal procedure. It’s wise, I think. If you just escape the house, there’s a possibility that the lord will send people to chase after you.」(Titania)
「Also, I think it will be difficult to escape since this region is surrounded by monster territory.」(Mylia)
「Is that so? If you can use magic, you can fly to the south city, Hamanule, right? Ah, by the way, does that city still exist?」(Titania)
「Yes. Hamanule is now ruled by Baron Hansen.」(Mylia)
「I see. It was a small town in the past, but I wonder if it has developed a lot.」(Titania)
「According to Chloe onee-chan, it has become prosperous from selling wool.」(Mylia)
「Fuーn. Well, that city doesn’t matter now. More importantly, I’m also worried about Chloe. Do you want me to help your sister as well?」(Titania)
「Seriously!? Thank you! Please prioritize helping her over me if you can!」(Mylia)
Seeing Mylia bowing cutely, Titania shrugged her shoulders and laughed a little.
「What are you talking about? Mylia, you know that your sister is really smart, don’t you? I’ll just help her a little. I’m your master after all, so I can’t prioritize her.」(Titania)
「Well, you’re right. Chloe onee-chan is really smart.」(Mylia)
「Right? But, royal girls’ academy, huh? I hope you will make many friends there. I believe if you get to know various kinds of people, it will be beneficial to your life.」(Titania)
「Yes, I hope so too!」(Mylia)
After that, Mylia discussed her future plans with Titania.
「So, Mylia, I’ll be teaching you magic for the next four years. After that, you will take the exam to enter the royal girls’ academy. I’m sure you’ll pass if you can use magic, but for your future life, I think it’ll be better if I also teach you general education.」(Titania)
「First, I think it’s a good idea if you learn concealment type magic so that you don’t get caught when you come here.」(Titania)
「So you mean, I’ll be like a spy or a ninja?」(Mylia)
「Spy? I think it’s a little different but… maybe something like that?」(Titania)
「Uwaa~! I can’t wait to learn it!」(Mylia)
Mylia remembered about a spy novel she read in her junior high school library.
「You’re really a weird girl… And to help Chloe, I’ll use my clairvoyance magic to find out about the trending topics in the royal girls’ academy selection test, and will teach her based on thatー no, wait… It’s hard for Chloe to come here, right?」(Titania)
「Yes. She has a job picking lavender, and after she’s done with that, she has to go straight home.」(Mylia)
「I see. It can’t be helped, then. Mylia, can you tell her for me?」(Titania)
「Leave it to me!」(Mylia)
「And actually… I feel like I also have to train a little.」(Titania)
「You have to train?」(Mylia)
「You see, I’m still not in good shape because I’ve slept for so long, so if possible, I don’t want to show my face in front of the Atwood family for at least ten years. I’ll spend my time at home until then. If something happens, both of you should solve it with your own power. Besides…. I’m too lazy to go out now.」(Titania)
（Master… She really lives at her own pace. Well, that’s an elf for you.）
Now that they were done talking about the future plan, Mylia enjoyed the cookies and tea Titania had prepared.
（Mmm~~~ Master’s cookies are really good!）
Because she always ate bad-tasting food everyday, she felt like she was in heaven once the delicious taste of the cookies filled her mouth.
After Mylia finished eating the cookies, they began today’s practice session.
Mylia and Titania went out of the house and stood in the front yard, facing each other.
Titania then took Mylia’s hands.
「What magic are you good at?」(Titania)
「I’m good at wind magic.」(Mylia)
「Wind, huh? Alright, try using wind magic to blow my hair.」(Titania)
Mylia concentrated on her magical powers and imagined an electric fan blowing Titania’s hair.
「Hmm… you’re not controlling your magical power well.」(Titania)
「Uhh… I’m sorry.」(Mylia)
「But don’t worry! Because I will teach you magic, you’ll be able to do it!」(Titania)
「Of course! Who do you think I am?」(Titania)
「…Huh? Who the heck is Saito-san?」(Titania)
「Ah, nothing. It just popped into my head.」(Mylia)
*/ Tsukasa Saito is one of the duo comedians called “Trendy Angel”.
His partner’s name is Takashi.
There’s a scene in one of their comedy acts where Saito pretended to be Takashi and said, “Who the heck do you think you are? You are Saito-san!”
Translator : Now we know that Miria was listening to Trendy Angel before she got hit by a car in prologue 1.
「Hm? Anyway, how do you imagine yourself when you use magic?」(Titania)
「I imagine my magical power runs through my blood vessels. This method is written in a magic textbook in my house’s reading room.」(Mylia)
Titania sighed and released Mylia’s hands.
「Hahh… I’m glad that you came here and found me! Normal people can use that method, but you’re different, you know? If you use that method, you won’t be able to control your tremendous amount of magical power.」(Titania)
「Eh? Am I not normal?」(Mylia)
「Well, you have three times more magical power than me.」(Titania)
「Three times… more than you…?」(Mylia)
「Yup. You know? I have twenty times more magical power than a royal magician, so that means you have sixty times more magical power than them! Ahh~ Mylia, teaching you magic will be so exciting!」(Titania)
Royal magicians are strong magicians who have been selected to protect the Kingdom of Adrashelm.
（Sixty times… so that means I can be sixty times stronger than the royal magicians!? Uhwaa! Here it comes! This is exactly what ‘being reincarnated in a different world’ should be!）
