Chapter 4-23 : The Shocking Story Of The Eldest Daughter (part 2)
Bonnie couldn’t imagine what kind of topic Chloe and Mylia wanted to talk about, coming so suddenly in the middle of the night like this.
She swallowed and stiffened a bit. She seemed to be a little nervous.
「Bonnie onee-sama, before we tell you why we came, can you tell me about yourself?」(Chloe)
「You want to hear about me…?」(Bonnie)
「Yes. I want to know how your life has been since you married Alex onii-sama. You may not want to talk about it, but… I want to know why my smart and elegant Bonnie onee-sama could become so gloomy and depressed…」(Chloe)
Seeing Chloe lower her eyebrows while saying that, Bonnie couldn’t help but smile.
「Chloe… I thought you were not interested in me at all.」(Bonnie)
「That’s not true. Honestly… I was very disappointed when you married Alex onii-sama and became depressed all the time. I felt like I had lost the real you. But… I know that you had tried your best to keep Alex onii-sama away from us. You had been watching us without us knowing and… I’m truly grateful for that.」(Chloe)
「Thank you, Bonnie onee-sama.」(Mylia)
Chloe’s long black hair fell from her shoulders as she bowed her head down.
Next to her, Mylia also bowed gratefully to Bonnie.
「Oh, please, stop it, you two. You are my precious little sisters. I just did what I had to do as your older sister.」(Bonnie)
Bonnie shook her head with an apologetic expression.
She seemed to feel regretful that her husband was such a terrible man.
（Come to think of it, there are a lot of blind spots around this mansion but Chloe onee-chan, Jasmine onee-sama, and I didn’t get molested by that lolicon that often. Considering how perverted he was, he could have done it more often… I think it was because Bonnie onee-sama had been keeping him away from us and not letting him had any chances to be alone with either of us as much as possible.）
Alex could have brought Mylia, Chloe, or Jasmine to the back of the mansion by force anytime he wanted, but because Bonnie always kept an eye on him, he rarely got the chance to do that.
「Anyway, let’s have some tea while we talk, shall we?」(Mylia)
Mylia didn’t want the atmosphere to get heavy, so she took out three chairs and a round table from her magic bag.
Bonnie was startled when the chairs and the table suddenly appeared in front of her.
「Whoaa…! Mylia, where did you take all these things from?」(Bonnie)
「I took them from this magic bag! I stored a lot of things in it.」(Mylia)
When Mylia showed the small bag on her waist, Bonnie stared at it curiously.
「Hee… What a fascinating item.」(Bonnie)
「Right? I made it myself!」(Mylia)
「Really? You’re such an amazing little witch. Fufu.」(Bonnie)
Bonnie smiled and stroked Mylia’s head. She was truly impressed with Mylia’s talent.
「Hehe~ Please take a seat.」(Mylia)
Bonnie, who was still surprised, tried to calm herself down and took a seat.
Mylia and Chloe also sat down on their chairs.
「Bonnie onee-sama, you like mate tea? It’s a little strong but it tastes delicious!」(Mylia)
「Umm… I’ve never had it. You know what kind of tea we usually have here, right?」(Bonnie)
「Ahh… That tasteless tea… I remember. Alright, I think you will like this one.」(Mylia)
Mylia took out some tea cups and a teapot from her magic bag, then poured the tea into the cups.
The fragrant smell of the tea filled the hut as the steam rose from the cup.
「Whoa… I’ve never smelled such a rich and fragrant tea… It must be expensive tea, right?」(Bonnie)
「Umm, not really. Oh, right! Jasmine onee-sama made a lot of cookies for me. Please have some~」(Mylia)
Mylia then took out a plate and cookies made by Jasmine from her magic bag.
Bonnie opened her eyes wide when she saw so many cookies on the plate. Cookies are expensive and rare for people in the countryside like her after all.
「Cookies… This many…! Did Jasmine really make all these cookies?」(Bonnie)
「Yup. She has been learning how to cook since her eyes were fixed.」(Mylia)
「I’ve heard it from Robin, but… I see… So she really can see clearly now… Jasmine, I’m glad for you…」(Bonnie)
While staring at the cookies, Bonnie recalled the face of her third little sister and smiled.
「But… Are you sure I can have these expensive cookies and tea?」(Bonnie)
For some reason, Bonnie looked hesitant.
Seeing her hesitated face, Mylia and Chloe looked at each other and giggled. They remembered that they had the same reaction in the past.
For the Atwood Family, expensive tea and sweets such as cookies were as valuable as gold coins.
「Of course! I’m sure you will like it!」(Mylia)
「But… No, no. As the eldest daughter of the family, I can’t receive precious tea and cookies from my youngest sisters.」(Bonnie)
Bonnie shook her head, closed her eyes, and pushed the plate toward Mylia as if it was a painful decision.
「Don’t worry about me. I’m just not used to eating this kind of fancy food. Mylia, Chloe, you’re still in a growth period, you should eat it, not me.」(Bonnie)
「It’s alright. We can eat cookies and drink tea whenever we want, Bonnie onee-sama, so you should eat it.」(Mylia)
「But, still. I can’t receive precious things from my little sister.」(Bonnie)
「It’s okay. It’s not that precious in the royal capital. I can ask Jasmine onee-sama to make more for me or make it myself any time.」(Mylia)
「Mylia’s right. So, Bonnie onee-sama, please don’t hesitate.」(Chloe)
Seeing Bonnie who was still hesitating, Mylia and Chloe looked at each other and sighed.
Mylia then stood up and looked at Bonnie with a pouting face.
「Bonnie onee-sama, please forgive me!」(Mylia)
Mylia grabbed a cookie, quickly stuck out her arm, and forcefully pushed the cookie into Bonnie’s mouth.
「Mmm!!? Hihiya, whah ah huー!?」(Bonnie)
*Mylia, what are youー!?
「How does it taste? It tastes good, doesn’t it~?」(Mylia)
「ーーMmm… Mmm~!! It’s so crunchy and sweet! I’ve never eaten sweets like this in my life! Delicious~!」(Bonnie)
Bonnie’s troubled face immediately turned into a smiling face as soon as the sweetness of the cookie spread in her mouth.
After that, Bonnie continued eating the remaining cookies while crying a little.
Seeing how happy Bonnie was, Chloe and Mylia couldn’t help but smile. They then ate the cookies together.
