Chapter 4-24 : Heraldic Officers Are Coming! (part 1)
After talking with Bonnie late into the night, Mylia and Chloe returned to Mylia’s mansion in the royal capital.
Early the next morning, Mylia woke up and immediately called Aria with Phone Magic.
Because Mylia was in the royal capital, meaning she was within the range of Aria’s telepathy ability, Aria was able to respond to Mylia’s Phone Magic and they were able to talk with each other.
「Aria-san… Aria-san, can you hear me?」(Mylia)
『Mylia-san? What’s wrong?』(Aria)
「I’m sorry for calling you this early. Did I… wake you up?」(Mylia)
『No, it’s alright. I just woke up not long ago.』(Aria)
「I see. Aria-san, can I see you now? There’s something I want to talk about.」(Mylia)
『Y, Yes, of course! I… want to see you too! I’ll be waiting for you then!』(Aria)
Mylia ended the call, stretched her arms upward, and then went to wash her face.
（If I can adopt Bonnie onee-sama, it will be easier to have her divorce that child predator. I hope everything goes as planned…）
While washing her face, Mylia was thinking about her plan.
（But… Bonnie onee-sama is going to become my daughter, huh…? It’s hard to imagine…）
Mylia had mixed feelings about having a child twelve years old older than her, but she thought that it was the best way to save her older sister.
After changing clothes, Mylia teleported to the Griffith Family’s mansion in the royal capital.
Aria had already been waiting for Mylia by the entrance when Mylia got there.
「Aria-san, I’m sorry for visiting so early.」(Mylia)
「I don’t mind. Good morning, Mylia-san.」(Aria)
「Un! Good morning, Aria-san!」(Mylia)
（Aria-san looks a bit sleepy… I feel kinda bad for visiting her so early in the morning, but her sleepy face looks so cute!）
Aria guided Mylia to the living room and had a talk while having morning tea.
「Aria-san, I want to adopt my oldest sister, Bonnie onee-sama, just like I adopted Jasmine onee-sama a while ago. Can you help me?」(Mylia)
「Hold on… You want to adopt your oldest sister? Umm… Can you tell me the reason?」(Aria)
「Un… Bonnie onee-sama… she has beenーー」(Mylia)
Mylia explained everything about Bonnie to Aria.
She told her how Bonnie has been spending her life in the Atwood’s mansion. She also told Aria about the relationship between Bonnie and Alex and how Alex has been treating her.
After listening to Mylia’s explanation, Aria frowned.
However, she didn’t look too surprised because she knew quite a lot about the Atwood Family’s circumstances.
「…That’s… terrible… Alright, I understand. Of course, I will cooperate. Anyway, I will tell my father about this later. I think he can help you.」(Aria)
「Thank you, Aria-san!」(Mylia)
「By the way, you haven’t eaten breakfast, have you? Do you want to eat together?」(Aria)
Aria looked happy when Mylia accepted her offer. They then moved to the dining room and ate breakfast together.
After having breakfast, Mylia went to Titania’s house to work on the Tania Crystals.
Meanwhile, Aria wrote a letter for Duke Griffith explaining Bonnie’s circumstances and sent it to the Griffith Family’s main mansion.
Two days later, Aria went to Mylia’s mansion and handed Mylia some documents that Duke Griffith prepared for her.
「Whoaa! Thank you, Aria-san!」(Mylia)
「Aria, thank you.」(Chloe)
「It was my father who did the most work, but you’re welcome!」(Aria)
The procedures of the adoption would be held in the royal capital, but thanks to the letter Duke Griffith prepared, Mylia could already declare to the church that Bonnie was her adopted daughter.
（As expected from a Duke. He has the power to convince the church with only a single letter…）
「So, what’s your plan for today?」(Aria)
「I’m going to the church in the Atwood Territory to show this letter and tell the priest that Bonnie onee-sama will divorce her husband. Onee-chan, what about you?」(Mylia)
「Honestly, I want to see the priest, but… I will stay to help Aria with her work.」(Chloe)
「Eh? Chloe onee-sama, you can go with Mylia-san if you want. You know that I’ve hired some assistants, right? Besides, that priest had been taking care of you when you lived in the Atwood Territory, right? So, please don’t mind me. You should go see him.」(Aria)
「I see… Alright then. Thank you, Aria.」(Chloe)
「It’s decided then! Shall we go now?」(Mylia)
「Hold on, Myliaー」(Chloe)
「ーAaah~ Hypnus’ lunch, right?」(Mylia)
Chloe left Mylia and Aria in the living room and went to the storage room to get some honey for Hypnus.
「Onee-chan is being a good master… I’m glad for her!」(Mylia)
「I still can’t believe you keep a griffon in the middle of the royal capital…」(Aria)
After Chloe finished feeding Hypnus, Aria returned to her home while Mylia and Chloe teleported to the Atwood Territory.
As usual, they were floating about a hundred meters above the village to check the situation before landing.
「Onee-chan, look! That’s Bonnie onee-sama!」(Mylia)
「She’s working really hard…」(Chloe)
Chloe and Mylia spotted Bonnie who was working in an empty field, shoveling the ground.
「Bonnie onee-sama, please hang in there a little longer…」(Chloe)
「We will save you from that lolicon! Let’s go to the church, Onee-chan!」(Mylia)
Chloe and Mylia teleported to the back of the church and carefully watched the surroundings so that no one found them.
While pushing her back against the wall, Mylia used Clairvoyance to see the inside of the church.
「Great. No one but the priest inside.」(Mylia)
「That’s nice. Let’s go.」(Chloe)
They went inside the church through the backdoor and went straight to the priest’s room.
「Father, are you there? Please pardon me.」(Chloe)
「Yes. Hold on a second.」(priest)
Hearing someone calling him while knocking on the door, the priest opened the door.
He was shocked as soon as he saw two nostalgic faces.
「C, Chloe ojou-chan… Mylia ojou-chan…!?」(priest)
「Father… It’s been a while.」(Chloe)
