Chapter 3-9 : Party Venue (part 1)
Before traveling to the party venue, they returned to Mylia’s mansion briefly to dress up and make a plan. After arriving, the three of them got off the carriage with the help of a maid who works at her mansion.
「Lady Chloe, Miss Aria, please be careful.」(maid)
The maid opened the door of the carriage and bowed once.
（Ahh~ They look so beautiful~）
Mylia stared at the two in awe from the back when they gracefully descended from the carriage.
Seeing how beautiful Chloe and Aria were, Mylia lost balance when she tried to get off and almost fell.
「Lady Mylia, are you okay?」(maid)
Luckily, the maid quickly grabbed Mylia’s hand, preventing her from falling.
「Phew… I’m okay. Thank you!」(Mylia)
「Please pay attention to your footing.」(maid)
The maid smiled at Mylia who replied cheerfully as always.
Seeing her little sister who almost fell, Chloe quickly approached her and took her hand.
「Are you okay? I guess we better hold hands.」(Chloe)
「Hehe, I’m sorry. I didn’t pay attention to my footing because I was charmed by your beauty.」(Mylia)
「What are you talking about? Look at you. You’re the cutest girl in this venue! Un, I’m sure of it! My little sister is the cutest!」(Chloe)
While saying that, Chloe hugged Mylia carefully so as not to mess up Mylia’s hair.
（Ugu… Onee-chan… Your breasts… I can’t breathe…）
Mylia was wearing an orchid-colored bell-type dress that matched her hair color. It was a cute dress that spread from around the waist, making a shape like a bell. She looked a bit childish in that dress because she was kind of short.
Meanwhile, Chloe was wearing a slender turquoise dress that went well with her beautiful black hair and emphasized her good body shape that was well-balanced with her large, attractive breasts.
（…And your necklace is pressing against my cheek… Ugu…）
Chloe was also wearing the necklace Mylia made with Titania’s help. It was pressing against Mylia’s cheek as Chloe hugged her.
The chain was made from silver and gold, and the big pendant in the center was made of sapphire. Mylia really did a great job putting it together and creating such a gorgeous necklace that fit perfectly with Chloe.
（Hmm… This necklace looks good, but…）
「Onee-chan, I will make another necklace with a bigger pendant next time.」(Mylia)
「I don’t know why you suddenly come up with that idea, but this one is big enough. I will stand out even more if I wear a bigger necklace.」(Chloe)
While still hugging Mylia, Chloe looked down at Mylia.
「Are you sure? I still have a lot of gold, silver, and various jewels in my magic bag.」(Mylia)
「Jewels? How did you find them?」(Chloe)
「Master taught me how to find them with Sonar Magic. I always looked for them and many other things with Sonar Magic around the forest back before I came here to the royal capital.」(Mylia)
「Hee… Why didn’t you ever tell me about that? How many jewels do you have, by the way?」(Chloe)
「Umm… I’m pretty sure there are more than ten thousand.」(Mylia)
「Un. There are a lot of them, especially in the monster territory near our village.」(Mylia)
「Ahh… I shouldn’t have asked…」(Chloe)
Chloe put her hand on her forehead and sighed.
It reminded her of when Mylia showed her the huge amount of rock salt she found.
「But I don’t know which ones have value and which ones are worthless. Well, most of them are probably worthless because I could find them easily.」(Mylia)
「Hmm… When I have free time, I can appraise them for you if you want.」(Chloe)
「Really!? I’m looking forward to it!」(Mylia)
「Umm… Mylia-san, Chloe onee-sama… Everyone is looking at you, so…」(Aria)
Before they realized it, the surrounding people were sending warm gazes toward Chloe and Mylia who were hugging each other.
「Woops… Mylia is so cute that I forgot we’re in public.」(Chloe)
「Don’t worry, I understand your feelings!」(Aria)
（Fuuuu… Haaaa… I can finally breathe…）
Mylia took a deep breath as soon as Chloe let go of her. She then stared at Aria who was standing next to her.
Aria was wearing a white empire-style dress. It was a dress with a high waistline that emphasized the charm of Aria’s slender body. The earrings and necklace that were shining on her ears and chest were made of diamond.
（Whoaa… Now that I look at her closely, I noticed that Aria-san’s legs are surprisingly long. She looks so sexy in that dress… She said her father often bought her dresses. Well, I can understand. If I were her father, I would do the sameー No, I would definitely buy her dresses more often than her father! Ten dresses every day if necessary!）
「Mylia-san, what’s wrong? Do I look weird in this dress…?」(Aria)
「No, no! Not at all! You look wonderful!」(Mylia)
「Really? You look cute in that dress too!」(Aria)
They smiled at each other and blushed as usual.
「Well then, Mylia-san, Chloe onee-sama, let’s go. The reception is over there.」(Aria)
Aria pointed to the table with three young men who seemed to be the receptionists.
Mylia looked around when they were heading to the reception. She noticed that there were people observing the party venue from the carriages that were parked in front of the restaurant on the other side of the road. They seemed to be married aristocrats who looked for more wives. They couldn’t enter because this party was only for unmarried people, that’s why they could only observe the party venue from a distance.
（Our purpose for coming here is to find Robin, but… This is bad… I have to protect Aria-san and Chloe onee-chan from ‘bad insects’ who will hit on them!）
Chloe and Aria were without a doubt charming women after all. In fact, most of the males around them were staring at them.
Mylia was getting worried.
「Onee-chan, Aria-san, please be careful! I noticed some men were looking at you with lewd eyes! I bet they will come to hit on you later!」(Mylia)
「Fufu. People want to get close to me just because I’m the number one student in the Commerce Department, you know? I don’t think people at this party know about that, so you don’t need to worry.」(Chloe)
（No, Onee-chan! I don’t think that’s the case! Why don’t you realize your own charm!?）
「You don’t need to worry about me either. I went to a big party a while ago, and no one tried to hit on me.」(Aria)
（That’s impossible! …Wait a minute… Don’t tell me…）
「Aria-san, did you go with your father at that time?」(Mylia)
「Yes. How do you know?」(Aria)
（Aria-san, the reason why no one tried to hit on you is that they were afraid of your father!）
「A, Aah! Never mind. Forget what I said. Let’s enter the venue, shall we?」(Mylia)
Mylia quickly changed the subject and continued walking toward the reception.
