Chapter 15 – Birthday! Debut! (Last Part)
After the speech, my 3 years old body started to yearn for sleep so I was led by Mary San, as she held my hand, back into the bedroom. And I had totally no memory of getting changed…
It was bright outside the window before I realized it. I must have slept through the entire night just like that.
…What a disgrace…
…It must be because the party was held at night. It could not be helped because I was only 3 years old! Yep, that’s right! I also did not fumble with my words yesterday because I was 3 years old. [TN: …You are really using your age to the fullest aren’t you?]
I crawled to the edge of the bed, being careful not to wake my parents, who were sleeping besides me. Climbing down from the bed without making a sound was almost impossible for me at this point.
Why? Wasn’t it obvious that it was because this bed was ridiculously big and high? I really felt like asking how many people it was planned for.
After much effort, I finally got down from the bed and put on my shoes, which was beautifully lined up along with the others.
…Man, it was really small…Every time I looked at my feet I would always be amazed by the smallness of it.
With stealthy steps, I headed towards the door connecting to the room next door. Turning the knob without making a sound, I opened the door.
Yep, let’s change.
I got out of my pajamas casually and took out from the closet a white shirt, black vest and black pants. I was worried that I would hate my clothes if they ended up being very noble-ish but it was unfounded. Their sense was actually quite good. Aside from the medieval style.
The material, as expected as a Noble, was quite good. At first, I was really nervous about wearing it. What if I dirtied it? …But I got used to it now…
” Yawn.. ”
I sat on the sofa, yawning. As my legs could not reach the ground, I just swung them aimlessly.
” Funfunfunfunfunfu~m ♪ ”
It was not because I was looking forward to family party later on. The humming was because of… that. It was because I had nothing to do.
This period where my parents were still asleep and the maids were busy with the housework was always my free time. I often used it to practice my magic.
Chantlessly, I casted magic of all attributes and moved them about. It was really fun recently as my control got better. Let’s try hitting them like a game of billiards.
Come to think of it…..
And suddenly I thought of the blue Tanuki. That darkness attribute…looked like that. The novels I read had the same thing as well…
Struck with an idea, I executed it immediately.
First of all, I made a figure-like thing from earth magic.
” [Subspace]~! ”
With the blue Tanuki in mind, I tried chanting it slow as well as dragging the sound out…
” Did it work…? ”
For now, a black-like stuff appeared in front of my eyes. All right, let’s experiment with it.
I placed the clay figure into it. The subspace disappeared. I casted it again.
” I did it…! ”
It worked! It seemed like I could put 1 clay figure into it. This time round, I made 10 figures at once and tried putting it in.
It went it.
I did it!!!!!!
Overjoyed, I wiggled on the sofa. I continued like that for a while.
….I got tired. So I relaxed myself on the sofa.
With this, my Blue Tanuki plan took a step forward. As I sat there, bathing in my satisfaction, someone knocked on the door.
” Come in. ”
The door opened with a swish and Mary San entered. In her hands was her usual equipment for the morning, a boom, pail and a dust cloth.
” Mary San, good morning. ”
” Good morning, Young Master. ….Please call me if you are awake. Please let the maids dress you up. ”
I was told by the other maids as well but honestly, with my previous memories this was too embarrassing.
It was torture.
” Eh…But you are all so busy in the morning, it just does not feel right. ”
I said, using thoughtfulness as an excuse but…
” This is our job or rather we are working because of Young Master so please do not worry about it. Please do not take our job away! ”
And I was petitioned against.
” Okay, then, from the next time onwards. ”
I would not call though.
I smiled, trying to push Mary San to agree. I was sly?
Not at all! This was self-defense!
The maids were scary! Plus, it was embarrassing!
Smiling, Mary San began to clean the room. Actually, it was supposed to be done before I woke up but I woke up early today.
….It’s not like I worked up because I was excited…
Watching Mary San’s movement from the sofa, I started to feel drowsy and began to doze off.
” …ster, Young Master. Preparations are ready. Let us go, Young Master. ”
In the end, I fell asleep…
Mary San woke me up, standing from across the sofa. I put on the shoes I didn’t remember kicking off, took Mary San’s hand and went out of the room.
It was a secret that I was fidgety as I walked along the corridor.
Like usual, Mary San opened the huge door leading to the dining room.
“””” Happy Birthday! (Young Master) “”””
Who were waiting there, were Father, Mother and the rest of the maids. They congratulated me all at once.
” Thank you! ”
I then decided, that today, to be the 3 years old I was, and leaped into my parents’ arms.
I could feel the warmth of a family.
Father : What Present would you like?
Will : …Hmm…A book.
Father : I see, a picture book! What kind do you like?
Will : Not a picture book, a book. I want a dictionary.
Father : ……
Mother : ……I wonder what should I give.
Will : I want to play with Mother!
Mother : Ah ra, Will♪
Father : ……
