 My head feels cool and clear. I’m not sure what to expect.



“That… what about Fay? Is Fay okay?” (Tougo)



 As far as I’m concerned, I can’t think of anything else to say, and when I ask that anyway… Laocles let out a sigh of dismay.



“Oh. He would have been fine. It seems you cured him.” (Laocles)



 I healed him. …Yes, I healed him. Healed, but… Huh?



“I heard the doctor was trying to kill Fay Bullard Redgarde by giving him poison as a ‘cure,’ but he suddenly didn’t need the medicine anymore, did he?” (Laocles)



 …I got it.


 Yeah, I remember. Right after Fay found out that I was trying to draw Fay and cure him, he immediately delivered a letter telling me that he would no longer need the medicine.


 The ‘medicine’ at that time was… It was poison!



“…don’t make that face. In fact, you saved him.” (Laocles)


“…I see.” (Tougo)



 It was a paper-thin line, I thought, and suddenly I was scared. I didn’t think something like that could happen.



“After that, I heard that they were looking to kill Fay Bullard Redgarde, but before that, they were talking about ‘who was the one who made all those wounds heal completely’. The assassination plan was put on hold there… But then you came along…” (Laocles)


“I see. So, it’s after I was examined?” (Tougo)


“Yes. The doctor exposed your vast magical power to the Dioren family. At that point, to some extent, they had a clue on, ‘the person who summoned the Red Dragon’. And the Dioren family’s aim. instead of assassinating Fay Bullard Redgarde, was shifted to recruiting you… In a way, you could say that you took his target mark.” (Laocles)



 That’s good… Yeah, I’m glad to hear that. I’m so glad Fay wasn’t poisoned.


 I mean, I was lucky. I was able to heal Fay, and at a good timing. And afterwards, the fact that the doctor examined me and the information was leaked to the Dioren family, in hindsight, it was all a good thing.


 Otherwise, Fay’s life would have been in danger. It could have been irreversible.



“…thank goodness.” (Tougo)



 I was so relaxed that I couldn’t think of anything else to say. Originally, it felt like my body barely had any strength, but I finally lost it all.



“Hey, stop worrying. Don’t go looking fluffy.” (Laocles)



 I’m not fluffy. I promise I’m not.



“…Well, now you get the general idea. While you were out of magic, the Redgardes had the doctor confess, and they filed a complaint to the royal castle about that, along with trespassing and kidnapping of a young child. It’s only a matter of time before the Diorens are in jail.” (Laocles)



 I see. At least now I know what’s going on. Yeah.


 But I’m worried about…



“Um, Carnelia, that’s…” (Tougo)


“Hmm. I don’t think Carnelia will be held accountable for their actions.” (Laocles)



 Oh, I see. The fact that Carnelia has been hidden from the public until now will come in handy here. If that’s the case… I feel everything is going to be just right.


 I think it’s a complicated situation for Carnelia to have her immediate family members thrown in jail as criminals…



“Well, brother Santos and father, they should reflect in prison! I hope they make sure they get their heads straight!” (Carnelia)



 …Yeah, looking at Carnelia, I think all my worries are blown away. She’s so tough.



 As expected, I couldn’t move that day, so I was put back in the hammock again. By whom? The horses.



“Yes. Tougo. I’ll lend you this child! If you put her on your belly, I don’t think your belly will ever get cold!” (Carnelia)


“Yes, thank you. It was so warm just now.” (Tougo)



 …And Carnelia once again lent me her Phoenix chick. Thank you…



“Oh, you’re coming out too?” (Laocles)



 Then Laocles spoke to the shield… and the alicorn came out of it.


 Then, instantly, the Pegasi and Unicorns started to neigh. They wagged their tails, flapped their wings, and went to rub up against him.


 Apparently, the alicorn was like an “idol” to the horses. Or perhaps he is the youngest and cutest among the family. I’m glad to hear that they are being welcomed and was fitting in. …though the alicorn himself looks around with an expression like “what in the world is this forest”…


 …then the alicorn came up to my hammock and sat down to sleep.


 I immediately felt a little bit stronger. I wonder if this is what it means when Fay said they are sharing their magic power with me.


 Perhaps it is because I am now able to feel the magic a little more, or perhaps I have come to be able to understand this kind of thing.


 When I concentrated on my stomach, I felt that not only heat but also magic power was being poured into my body from the phoenix chick.


 Perhaps this phoenix chick is also sharing his magical power with me. Although he is a phoenix, he is still a phoenix chick, so I don’t want it to be too hard on his self…


 I was warmed in the belly by the phoenix chick, stroked gently by the wings of the alicorn, and rocked in the hammock… I became sleepier and sleepier.


 The first thing that comes to mind when I realized that I am sleepy is that I feel sleepy.


 I am embraced by asleep. …Yeah, I’ll do my best again when I wake up.



 When I woke up, it was morning. I must have slept for about 18 hours.


 Thanks to the horse and Phoenix chick, my body was feeling much better. I still felt heavy, but not so heavy that I could not move.


 So, I decided to visit the Redgarde family with Laocles on the alicorn.



“Tougo! Are you okay!?” (Fay)


“I’m fine. I heard it was also a tough time for you.” (Tougo)


“Oh. No problem here. The doctor was forced to throw up everything he could, and the Lord of the Dioren Family and his son were safely imprisoned!” (Fay)



 For the time being, Fay was in the same as before. I’m very glad that the assassination attempt ended in an attempt and his health was well.



“…Well, somehow, I didn’t expect this to happen. And you saved me again…” (fAY)


 I didn’t see it coming either, but…” (Tougo)



 …When I look at the complete results, I think, well, it was a good thing. I’m not sure what to expect. For the time being, Fay’s assassination ended only as an attempt.


 Nothing happened, except that the Redgarde family’s garden was somewhat trashed, and I went to the Dioren family and brought back phoenix chick, alicorn, Ms. Intarlia and Carnelia.


 A lot of things happened before that, but, well… yeah. Not a single thing was irreversible. That’s the best.



“Oh, yes. Your sealing tool, I’m going to have to remake one as well. …If it has poison in it or something, you might not be able to notice it.” (Fay)



 Come to think of it, this was also prepared by that doctor.


 …I feel like I can control my magic better when I wear this sealing tool, so I think it might be the real thing, but… Still, just to be on the safe side, we’ll have to replace it.



 Then I had to give Fay a rundown of our side of the story.


 Fay started laughing hysterically when I brought out the phoenix chick. He kind of liked it. A Phoenix chick. I want him to see it in person. It’s so cute.



“…And then, about the contract. …I’d like to reconsider it one more time. I don’t know what to think.” (Tougo)



 Then, abruptly, Fay said something.


 He looked a little awkward and somewhat reluctant as he said this.



“I thought that if you made a contract with the Redgarde family, I could keep you safe. I’m not sure if but it might be the other way around, though. It might be more dangerous for you to be known by hanging out with nobles. Besides, some conflicts might appear with unknown entities because of the contract with us.” (Fay)



 ……It is true, that may be so.


 Signing a contract with the Redgarde family means that I will continue to be involved with the world of nobles in the future… that is definitely my weak spot. Furthermore, there is a possibility that even me and Fay will be in danger. At least me.


 As for protection, the Redgarde family’s protection is not always perfect.



“I thought about this incident. You see, this whole thing wouldn’t have happened if you’d stayed in the woods all this time. That’s why…” (Fay)


“But if I stayed in the forest all the time, I wouldn’t have met Laocles, and Carnelia would have stayed the same.” (Tougo)



 I have no regrets. I’m grateful to you for bringing me to town. And for asking me to sign a contract.


 But it takes a lot of courage to sign a contract… Especially for me.


 Even if you don’t care about my safety and all that, it’s still a scary thing.



“Can I stay overnight today? I’ll come to a decision tomorrow.” (Tougo)




 …so that I can put everything into words. I’ll try my best today.
