Chapter 43

Won’t You Become My Child?

 

“If Krumm could appraise Yuuri-chan, then it’d be troublesome, huh?”

“Yeah. How will that Count Rainier turn up then…?”

 

No, not good.

Rather than equipment, I need to think about Count Rainier first.

 

As for the equipment—I still couldn’t equip them, and as long as I put them inside my item box, everything will be alright, right? It was fine up until now, after all.

Let’s think about it once I reach a level where I can equip them.

 

“Is Count Rainier that amazing of a person?”

When I tried asking in my anxiety, Amanda-san furrowed her eyebrows.

Whoa. It’s not good for a beautiful woman to make such an expression!

“It can be said that he’s the wealthiest noble in the kingdom. He has a magical crystal producing area.”

“Magical crystal?”

I know of magical stones, but what about magical crystal?

 

“Do you know that magical stones are the hearts of strong monsters?”

I nodded when Amanda-san asked me that.

The hearts of the monsters or variants that had lived long turned into magical stones upon death for some reason. In the game, [Red Gem] or [Blue Gem] were dropped after we defeated strong monsters. They became the ingredients to make weapons and armours, so I assume they’re the same thing.

 

However, unlike the game, the magical stones here don’t have any attribute. In the game, the [Red Gem] is of fire lineage, while the [Blue Gem] is of water lineage and we needed to choose which to use in accordance to the needs of the equipment we wanted to create. But in this world, only the size and the quality of the magical stones seem to be important.

 

The magical stone that was dropped from the Goblin King that Leon-san defeated during the Monster Flood was around the size of a human’s head, but even that was considered small because the Goblin King was defeated before it could grow stronger.

As for the magical stone that was dropped from the Undead King that was defeated eight years ago, it seemed to be amazingly big as by the time it was defeated, it was terribly strong already.

The magical stones dropped from the Monster King were all kept by the temples. I’d like to see them one day.

 

“The magical crystal looks like an ordinary stone, but it can store magical power. In other words, it’s a degraded version of the magical jewel.”

Is that something similar to a battery, then?

Certainly if it’s something that can only be taken from Count Rainier’s territory, he’d certainly become filthy rich.

“The one that discovered the magical crystal in the very beginning was a dwarf that was traveling to find crystals to be used for blacksmithing. That’s why dwarf researchers receive favourable treatment in Count Rainier’s territory.”

“That’s why even though Krumm-san is researching artifacts, he went to Count Rainier’s place, huh?”

“Yeah. It’s a well-known story that Count Rainier is gathering talented people with promising future for his profit and hobby.”

 

I see I see.

By gathering superior and talented people, he’d be able to develop his territory to be more abundant. Even though he has a face similar to a racoon’s… It’s true that we can’t judge a book by its cover.

 

“That’s why, if he were to know about Yuuri-chan, he’ll absolutely want to take you in.”

Argo-san said with his arms crossed and a frown on his face.

 

“That’s right. Yuuri-chan is still small, so it’s impossible to hire you… Upon further consideration, he’d want to take you in as one of his relatives, then, I guess?”

“…Certainly, he has a son around her age.”

“Yeah. He was thirteen, if I’m not wrong. And he is supposed to not have a fiancée yet.”

 

Uhm… Then, could it be that I would be engaged to that son of Count Rainier?

Eeeeh?!

 

If you’re reading this in a site other than Convallaria’s Library, then you’re reading this from a thief!

“We have to do something before he backs us into a corner.”

What do I do? Don’t joke around with me and tell me I have to get engaged to someone I don’t even know!

But I am not sure what I should do…

 

“Oh my. Then, what about becoming my daughter? That way, I think even that persistent Count Rainier will give up on me. Since there’s no way he can have a woman with a child be married into his Count house!”

Amanda-san clapped her hands as if she just thought of something good, but Argo-san heaved a sigh.

 

“Amanda… With your age, it’s impossible to have a daughter as old as Yuuri-chan.”

“Is that so? And if it’s important to have the father of the child, then as long as I persuade Georg, she will definitely have a complete set of parents.”

“—I feel like that’s your true intention.”

“T-that’s not it. Hey, Yuuri-chan, aren’t you interested in becoming my daughter?”

Even if you looked at me with eyes full of expectation… If it’s not becoming her younger sister, but for me to become Amanda-san’s daughter, I think it’s quite impossibleee.

 

“Uhm, I feel like it will be way too young for Amanda-san to become my mother.”

After all, Amanda-san is 21 years old, while I’m 8 years old. So, uhm, that’d mean she gave birth to a child when she was thirteen.

 

“Oh my. It’s fine to give birth to a child that early. No problem at all.”

“What about becoming your younger sister at most?”

“Then, I have to start by convincing my parents. It will take too much time.”

“Is that so…”

“That’s why, you see? Won’t you become my child?”

I’m truly happy to know Amanda-san’s feelings, but…

 

“I’m sorry. As expected, I’m a child of the Kuujou family, and I can’t become a child of another family. …I’m truly sorry.”

After all, I’ll definitely return to Japan.

If I were to change my Kuujou name, I got the feeling that I won’t be able to return to Japan. I’d hate that!
