“Yumm! This’s yummy, Mirabelle!”
“You’re right! These skewers are so yummy!”
“Shall I make one……”
“What? Can you cook, Julis-kun?”
“No, not at all. I’m a sloth.”
“Then why did you say that……”
“……Hmmm, even I, can’t handle a dozen balls with such skill. It’s wonderful……, really wonderful.”
“I haven’t seen a street performance in a long time……. Is that ball moving magically or something?”
“No, it’s simply technique, isn’t it? I don’t know, I don’t have mana, but it doesn’t look like he’s using magic.”
“It’s certainly…… amazing that he can make the balls fly through the air with such skill and technique…….”
Julis and Mirabelle wandered around capital.
Although there was something lonely in each other’s hands, there were smiles on their faces all the time as they ate and shopped and watched the street performances.
Julis thought that wandering around like this might be a fun way to enjoy sightseeing in the capital. But Mirabelle was different.
(Is, isn’t this…… a date? Because it’s just the two of us alone……. What fun… it was worth all the effort I put in to ask Julis-kun out!)
It was a completely different thing inwardly than when they were just wandering around and sightseeing in the city.
Mirabelle’s ears are red since a while ago. Even the tips of her pointed ears are bright red.
(I wonder if I can hold his hand……? Am I allowed to do? Will Cecilia-chan get mad at me?)
……Good luck, O Mirabelle.
In the midst of all this, Julis, walking aimlessly, suddenly noticed one of the stalls.
Then, slowly, he grabbed Mirabelle’s hand────
“Come here for a minute, Mirabelle.”
He headed toward that stall.
Mirabelle, whose wish had unexpectedly come true, turned even redder than before.
“I thought Mirabelle might like this……. How? It looks good, isn’t it?”
Julis took her to a store that sold small accessories.
The store was a little different from others in that most of the accessories on display were probably made of plants.
Mirabelle gazed at the accessories with sparkling eyes.
Elves lived in harmony with nature. This was not because it was a law, or because it was an elf’s restriction, but simply because they loved nature and they were best suited to it.
Mirabelle was no exception.
She loved nature. However, since leaving the Elven territory and coming to the Magic Academy, Mirabelle has had very few opportunities to be in contact with nature.
That was why she would visit gardens alone on her days off.
(Wow…… this is made of mimosa trees! And I wonder if the pendant part is made of dried hash berries to make it shiny!)
Mirabelle was excited to see one of the accessories on display.
The part of the pendant that hung around the neck was made of a branch without thorns, while the chest part was made of red berries. That somehow caught Mirabelle’s gaze────
“Auntie, give me this.”
“There you go!”
Julis bought the pendant.
He took the pendant after seeing Mirabelle looking at it with sparkling eyes without any hesitation.
Then, he handed the money to the store lady────
“Oh! It looks good on you, after all, Mirabelle!”
────and put the pendant around Mirabelle’s neck.
Mirabelle, who was still frozen, looked down at the pendant.
“It is my gratitude for today. You invited me and you seemed to like Mirabelle…… so I’ll give it to you as a gift.”
“Th, thank you……, Julis-kun.”
“You’re welcome. I’m so glad you liked it.”
Julis said to Mirabelle, who was stunned, and started to look at the jewelry again.
On the other hand, Mirabelle held the pendant to her chest as if she cherished it.
(Oh no…… Th, this is no good……)
She was so happy, she couldn’t stand it.
Her heart had been beating loud and fast since a while ago.
Julis, who gave gifts to women without saying a word, seemed somehow accustomed to women. ──── Even so, this kind of action still moved Mirabelle.
“I will cherish this……”
The pendant was a very nice gift for the woman.
(Come to think of it, I should buy something for Cecilia too……. Oh, this looks like something that would look good on Cecilia!)
Julis was looking for accessories that would look good on Cecilia as a souvenir.
He was sure Cecilia will be pleased. If this would raise her affinity up, he would have no complaints. With this in mind, he grabbed one of the accessories.
Then, Julis suddenly thought.
(Come to think of it, I never gave anything to Master…….)
During their long relationship, Julis had never given anything to his benefactor, Musée.
He had given Cecilia a few things in the past.
Yet, he couldn’t afford a token of gratitude for the days he spent with Muse in special training and research.
“……I think these are good enough.”
Julis picked up one more accessory to give to Cecilia and another to give to her.
