Chapter 4-22 : It’s Me, Mylia (part 1)
After observing the Atwood Territory for a while with Clairvoyance, Mylia had a little discussion with Titania and then headed back to her mansion in the royal capital.
While having dinner with Chloe, Mylia told Chloe about what she saw this afternoon.
「I see… Bonnie onee-sama is trying her best to make the village better… I’m glad she’s back to her old self…」(Chloe)
Chloe closed her eyes and smiled, reminiscing the old days when Bonnie taught her a lot of things.
「So, Mylia, what are you going to do?」(Chloe)
She then looked at Mylia and asked.
「I want to see Bonnie onee-sama!」(Mylia)
「I see. Then, can you take me with you? I’ve always wanted to talk with her someday. She had been depressed since she married Alex onii-sama, but now that she has returned to her old self, I’m sure she will tell me about various things like the old times.」(Chloe)
「Of course! It’s already dark, but shall we go now?」(Mylia)
「Ah, hold on, let me see Hypnus first.」(Chloe)
After she finished her dinner, Chloe went to the storage room to grab a full bucket of honey.
She then went to Hypnus’ stable with Mylia.
「Hypnus, here’s your dinner~」(Chloe)
Hypnus looked so happy. He immediately stuck his head down toward the bucket full of honey that Chloe put near his feet.
While watching Hypnus eating the honey, Chloe stroked his neck.
「Hypnus, I’m going to the Atwood Territory with Mylia now. I’ll be back soon. Can you be a good boy and wait here?」(Chloe)
Listening to Chloe, Hypnus stopped eating and raised his head. He then nodded to her.
「Great. Thank you.」(Chloe)
（Whoa… Onee-chan is doing a good job as Hypnus’ master. I expect nothing less from her.）
「Mylia, I’m ready.」(Chloe)
Saying that, Chloe stuck out her hand toward Mylia.
Mylia then grabbed it and smiled.
She squeezed her stomach muscles to make the radish sprout out of her head to be able to use her dryad magical power and then used Teleportation Magic.
Mylia and Chloe didn’t land immediately when they arrived at the Atwood Territory because Mylia decided to check the situation with Clairvoyance first while floating in the air above the mansion.
（If I remember correctly, Bonnie onee-sama’s room is on the second floor on the right side of the hallway.）
Candles were quite expensive, so to save money, the Atwood Family usually only used a few. Because of that, some of the rooms in the mansion were dark, including Bonnie’s room.
Even so, Mylia could tell that there was no one in the room.
（It’s an hour after they normally finish dinner, so I thought Bonnie onee-sama would be in her room by now, but… I wonder where she is now…）
「Have you found her?」(Chloe)
When Chloe asked, Mylia answered by shaking her head.
「Nope. I searched her room, but it was empty.」(Mylia)
「Hmm… I think she is wiping her body in the bathroom now.」(Chloe)
Firewood is precious, so the Atwood Family doesn’t take baths in a bathtub full of hot water. They just wipe their bodies with a wet towel.
Normally, they use normal water in the hot season and hot water in the cold season.
By the way, when Mylia lived in that mansion, she never got a chance to clean her body with hot water even during the cold season because Aaron didn’t want to waste even a piece of his precious firewood for an absent-minded daughter who couldn’t do anything useful.
「Let’s wait until she is done cleaning her body.」(Chloe)
「Okay. Let’s have a seat then.」(Mylia)
Mylia took out a carpet from her magic bag and cast Gravity Magic on it to make it float so that they could sit on it.
She then created an invisible barrier around the carpet to block the cold night wind.
After that, while still holding Chloe’s hand, she slowly lowered Chloe and let her sit down on the carpet. She then canceled the Gravity Magic she cast on herself and sat next to Chloe.
While waiting, Mylia wondered if there was a way to let Chloe see what she saw through Clairvoyance.
（It would be very convenient if I could share my sight with others… Hmm… Wait a minute… I think I can combine my Hologram Magic with Clairvoyance like I did when I combined it with Scanning Magic to make a 3D map. But… How am I going to make the spell work? Hmm… Oh, right! How about imagining it as a drone and a monitor?）
Mylia remembered that the people who worked in photography or movie production in her previous life sometimes used drones to take pictures.
After she got that idea, Mylia immediately focused on her magical power and started focusing.
She imagined her sight as a drone that was flying around and capturing footage.
（The drone will take the image, and the monitor will display it… Alright. I think I can do it… Hologram Magic, activate.）
With a huge amount of magical power and strong imagination, it is possible for Mylia to create a new spell in a short amount of time.
First, she used Hologram Magic to make a floating screen.
Chloe was a bit surprised when something that looked like a glowing piece of paper appeared in front of her.
「Mylia, what are you doing?」(Chloe)
「Hehe, I’m inventing a new spell! It will allow other people to see what I see with Clairvoyance. You will be able to see it on this screen.」(Mylia)
「Yup. Please wait a second.」(Mylia)
Mylia used Clairvoyance and then projected the image she saw on the floating screen.
「Onee-chan, can you see it now?」(Mylia)
「Whoa… Yes, I can see Bonnie onee-sama’s room on this floating thing!」(Chloe)
「Really? That means it’s a success! I did it!」(Mylia)
「Your magic ability is amazing as usual. But, Mylia, please promise me that you won’t show this spell to anyone.」(Chloe)
「Eh? Why not? I thought it would be convenient.」(Mylia)
「It is convenient, but if other people know that you can peek anywhere you want they might recognize you as a dangerous person. Therefore you should never show it to anyone, especially those from the royal family.」(Chloe)
When Chloe warned her with a worried look, Mylia nodded and gave her a smile.
「Un! Don’t worry, I will keep it between us!」(Mylia)
After replying to Chloe, Mylia took out two small bowls of grape jelly and two small spoons from her magic bag.
「Since we hurriedly came here and forgot our dessert, let’s eat them while waiting for Bonnie onee-sama!」(Mylia)
「Fufu. You’re so well prepared. Thank you, Mylia.」(Chloe)
Chloe and Mylia were eating grape jelly while keeping an eye on Bonnie’s room.
Not long after, the door opened.
「Oh, here she comes!」(Mylia)
「But… Alex onii-sama is with her…」(Chloe)
The image of Bonnie entering her room with Alex was reflected on the screen.
