Chapter 2-34 : Return To Master’s House (part 1)
After using teleportation magic many times, Mylia arrived at Atwood territory.
Of course, she didn’t stop by the Atwood’s mansion. She went straight to Titania’s house.
（Master’s house… Ahh, it’s been a while…）
The fresh green trees around the house casted a mottled shadow on the lawn bringing a dreamlike atmosphere.
Thanks to that beautiful house, Mylia could endure living a harsh life at the Atwood’s mansion.
（I bet Master is still sleeping…）
While rubbing her sleepless eyes, Mylia opened the door and entered the house.
It had only been three months since the last time she visited Titania’s house, but she felt very nostalgic.
（I haven’t slept yet… I’m so sleepy…）
The gentle scent of the house made Mylia drowsy.
By the way, on the way to Titania’s house, Mylia made a mistake. She teleported to the wrong places several times, so even though she still had more than half of her magical power, she was currently quite tired.
When Mylia entered Titania’s bedroom, she saw her beautiful master sleeping in the bed.
Titania’s long blonde hair spilled out of the bed, and her long ears were moving slightly up and down as she breathed. She was sleeping with her belly uncovered, perhaps because she had a hard time sleeping.
Mylia approached the bed and looked at Titania’s sleeping face.
「Hello, Master… It’s been a while…」(Mylia)
Mylia greeted Titania by whispering with a very low voice, but Titania realized Mylia’s presence.
She slightly opened her eyes and looked at Mylia’s face that was only about thirty centimeters away from hers.
「Yup, it’s me. I’m sorry for waking you up.」(Mylia)
「Why are you here…? Did you get kicked out of school…? Well, you’re clumsy after all, but don’t worry… Come~」(Titania)
Titania stretched out her arms, hugged Mylia and pulled her into the bed.
「Ahh… My cute pillow is back… MmmMmMm~…….」(Titania)
「I didn’t get kicked out of school, okay? ….Master, are you listening?」(Mylia)
「She’s sleeping again…」(Mylia)
Titania was back to sleep while holding Mylia’s body with her arms and legs as if Mylia was a hugging pillow.
（It’s a bit hard to breathe, but… Master’s gentle smell and her soft body feel really comfortable…）
While being embraced by her beloved master, Mylia closed her eyes and immediately fell asleep.
（…Hmm…? Oh, right. I’m at Master’s house now…）
Mylia rubbed her eyes and got up from the bed.
Titania wasn’t in the bed when she woke up.
Mylia wasn’t wearing her uniform robe and outerwear. It seemed like they had been taken off by Titania.
（Is Master awake…? Anyway… Clock Magic, activate…. Eh!? It’s 1 pm already!?）
Realizing that it was already past noon, Mylia hurriedly put her uniform on and went out of the house to look for Titania.
「Good morning, Mylia. Did you sleep well?」(Titania)
Titania, who was sitting on a tree stump while sunbathing, noticed Mylia and then greeted her with a smile.
「Good morning, Master. Yeah. I overslept though…」(Mylia)
Mylia approached Titania as soon as she found her in front of the house.
Titania then stroked Mylia’s head gently several times and looked into her face.
「I’m glad that you’re fine but… why did you come here? Did you really get expelled from school?」(Titania)
「I didn’t! Certainly, I got punished once, but I’m not a bad student, you know!」(Mylia)
「Fufu. I’m sorry, I’m just kidding. I know. I’m your master after all.」(Titania)
「So, you really watched over me from here with clairvoyance!?」(Mylia)
「Yup. I told you I could do that.」(Titania)
「Master, you’re awesome!」(Mylia)
「Fufu. When I have free time, I sometimes watch what you do at school. Hahh, I wish my telepathy could reach you too so that we could talk…」(Titania)
It seemed that Titania had been living her life carefreely as usual while Mylia was at school.
「Yeah, I wish I could talk with you too when I’m at school…」(Mylia)
「So? What happened?」(Titania)
「…Master, I’m going to fight the elder dragon, Basilisk. Can you lend me your wisdom?」(Mylia)
「The thing isーー」(Mylia)
Mylia explained the reason why she wanted to fight Basilisk.
Titania had been watching over Mylia, so she knew about Aria and her circumstances. Therefore, Titania was supportive.
「I see… So you were completing the underground maze last night. That’s why you were sleeping like a log. But… Basilisk, huh? Well, I don’t think that dragon will be a problem for you. I’m sure you can easily defeat it.」(Titania)
「Is that so? Master, can you come with me?」(Mylia)
「Hmm… I’ve never been to Duke Griffith’s territory, so we can’t go there with teleportation.」(Titania)
「But we can fly there, right?」(Mylia)
「I want to come with you but you know I can’t leave this territory, right? The village will be overwhelmed by the Monster Territory if I leave. Moreover, the monsters became more vicious lately because you have been absent for a while.」(Titania)
「Eh? What does it mean?」(Mylia)
「You know that monsters can’t enter human territories because of the density of the humans’ magical power, right? The higher the number of people living together in one area, the higher the density of the humans’ magical power in that area. The monsters around here became more vicious because you, who have an enormous amount of magical power, left this territory. Now, if I leave this forest for a while, the monsters will probably attack the village.」(Titania)
「I see… That would be really bad…」(Mylia)
（I don’t care about that muscle-brained father and the hateful older sister, but I don’t want to risk the lives of the villagers…）
Titania put her hands on Mylia’s shoulders and looked into her eyes.
「No one in the village is aware of the current state of the monsters because the villagers here don’t usually go outside the village…. Mmmhhー」(Titania)
Titania then stretched her body and put her hands on her waist.
「So do you really want to fight Basilisk?」(Titania)
「Yes. Do you know anything about its habitat and weaknesses?」(Mylia)
「Alright. I’ll tell you what I know about that dragon. Defeating Basilisk is not that hard, actually. I’m pretty sure I can even defeat it in less than five seconds.」(Titania)
「Really!? I know you are very strong!」(Mylia)
Actually, it would take about ten minutes for Titania to defeat Basilisk with her own power. She just wanted to act cool in front of her cute disciple after not seeing her for a while.
「I think you still have some time before Basilisk comes out of its nest, so before you go, let me hear about your life at school.」(Titania)
While saying that, Titania moved her index finger in a circle. Right after, the door of the house opened, and a large plate full of freshly baked cookies flew toward the two.
「Fufu. It’s been a while since the last time you ate my cookies, right?」(Titania)
After that, Titania took out a table, two chairs, and a tea set from her magic bag.
「Let’s talk while eating. After this, I will prepare lunch for you.」(Titania)
「Thank you, Master!」(Mylia)
Mylia was so happy. She replied to Titania with a smile and started eating the cookies.
