Chapter 3-28 : Spending The Night At The World Tree (part 1)
After all that happened, Leaf invited Mylia to her house and gave her some leaves of the World Tree and World Tree Morning Dew.
The leaves were stored in a wooden box and the dew in a small vial.
（What an unexpected harvest~ With the finest lettuce in the world in my hand, I’ve moved one step closer to the dream yakiniku party!）
While thinking that, Mylia stored the box filled with leaves of the World Tree in her magic bag.
（I’ve also obtained the item I was looking for!）
There wasn’t much World Tree Morning Dew in the vial. It was a very precious item after all. However, it was more than enough to fix Jasmine’s eyes because she would only need a couple drops of it.
（Jasmine onee-sama, wait for me!）
While imagining Jasmine’s smile, Mylia put the vial in her magic bag.
「Mylia, remember to use the dew within three days after you leave this place.」(Leaf)
Mylia and Leaf were sitting at the table in the living room.
As always, Leaf was expressionless. She also looked as if she was sleepy somehow.
Mylia didn’t know what she was thinking but after she gave Mylia the leaves and the dew, Mylia was sure that she wasn’t a bad person at all. Therefore, Mylia no longer bothered with her expressionless face.
「Leaf, thank you so much for the dew. I’m sure my sister will be very happy!」(Mylia)
Leaf replied with a flat voice but Mylia could tell that her attitude had become more friendly than the first time they met a while ago.
After that, Leaf stood up from her chair, walked to the corner of the room, and took out a large number of dead leaves of the World Tree from her magic bag.
The leaves of the World Tree were large. They were about half the size of Mylia’s body.
「Leaf, what are you doing?」(Mylia)
（Her behavior never stops making me confused…）
Without knowing what Leaf was thinking, Mylia watched her making two piles of leaves from the World Tree. Each pile was large enough for someone to lay down on, and both of them looked pretty comfortable to lay down on.
「Mylia, which one do you prefer?」(Leaf)
「What do you mean?」(Mylia)
「The right one or the left one?」(Leaf)
「Umm… What are these piles of leaves for in the first place?」(Mylia)
「For us to sleep on, obviously.」(Leaf)
（Ah, she probably thinks that I’m tired after the battle, so she wants me to get some rest. She’s such a considerate person even though she’s hard to read.）
「Thank you, Leaf. But I’m not that tired. I will just sit on a chair for a while.」(Mylia)
Leaf tilted her head. She seemed to be confused with what Mylia said.
Seeing Leaf tilting her head, Mylia also did the same. They both were confused.
「Mylia, you’re going to stay here tonight.」(Leaf)
「Eh!? …D, Do I have to…?」(Mylia)
「You don’t want to?」(Leaf)
（Uhh… She answered my question with a question… What a terrifying girl… Normally, you ask the guest first before deciding that they will stay in your house, right?）
At that moment, Mylia wished that she had a complete manual book about dryads’ way of thinking.
（Should I turn her down and say no? But… I don’t know what will happen if I disappoint her… I think I should ask Master first. Aa… come to think of it, I forgot to call Master as soon as the battle was over. She’s probably worried about me now…）
「Let me think. Please wait for a moment.」(Mylia)
Mylia turned around and called Titania with her Phone Magic.
「Master, can you hear me?」(Mylia)
『Thank god! Mylia, are you okay? How was the battle?』(Titania)
「I’m fine, don’t worry. The battle is over.」(Mylia)
『Did you win?』(Titania)
『Phew… I knew you would win. If you lost, the dryad would steal all your magical power and kick you out of the barrier so that you would never come back again.』(Titania)
「Eh!? Why didn’t you tell me such an important thing!?」(Mylia)
『I’m sorry. I forgot.』(Titania)
（As usual, she forgot to tell me important information… Oh, well…）
「It doesn’t matter now. More importantly, the dryad told me to stay in her house tonight. Do I have to?」(Mylia)
『H, Hold on… She asked you to stay in her house? A dryad… asked a human to stay in her house!?』(Titania)
Titania sounded very shocked for some reason.
Mylia reflexively closed her eyes in surprise when Titania shouted.
「Y, Yeah… Is there something wrong with that…?」(Mylia)
『It’s unlikely! I bet she really likes you.』(Titania)
「Do you think so?」(Mylia)
『Yeah. Otherwise, she would ask you to go home immediately. Mylia, I think this is a good opportunity. You may learn something if you stay. However, dryads still have a lot of mysteries. I heard that researchers from the elf village kept asking the dryads to allow them to stay in their houses to learn more about them, but of course, no one has ever been allowed to enter their houses until now.』(Titania)
「I see. Alright, I’ll spend the night here then.」(Mylia)
『But remember to stay cautious. You won’t know what will happen there. If you think you’re in danger, you can teleport away from there.』(Titania)
「Roger! Alright then, I’ll call you again later. Please take care of Jasmine onee-sama for me.」(Mylia)
Mylia ended the conversation and hung up her Phone Magic.
（Master said to stay cautious but Leaf doesn’t seem to be a bad person at all. I’m sure I’ll be fine. I’m gonna enjoy this rare experience of staying at the World Tree for a night~）
When Mylia turned around, she was surprised by Leaf who was staring at her face at a very close range.
「Geez. You scared me…」(Mylia)
「Why were you talking to yourself?」(Leaf)
「Ah, I wasn’t talking to myself. I was talking with my master using my Phone Magic.」(Mylia)
「Yeah. It’s like telepathy. You can talk to someone far away.」(Mylia)
「Interesting. Teach me.」(Leaf)
「You want to learn it?」(Mylia)
Leaf stepped forward as she asked Mylia to teach her the spell. Her face got even closer to Mylia’s.
「O, Okay, okay! You gave me the leaves and the dew, so I’ll teach you my spells in return, but first, let’s sit at the table and have some tea, shall we?」(Mylia)
Leaf replied to Mylia with a nod.
The two then sat at the table and talked about magic while enjoying tea until the sun went down.
