It was late at night and Ms. Kriemhild was feeling much better, so I said goodbye to her and Robot and left. They seemed to still have something to talk about.
Still, it’s a bit bizarre to see the two of them together. There aren’t many people who would look fitting next to Robot to start with, but since Ms. Kriemhild is so petite, they look even more suspicious together.

“Are. You. Going. Back. Tomorrow. Noon?… Looks. Like. We. Won’t. Be. Able. To. Enj0y. The. Hot. Spring. Together.”
“It’s fine. If I talk to Char and my accompanying person, they should give me enough time—wait, didn’t you hate showing your face, Robo?”
“Yes. Thus. I. Will. Be. Bathing. In. This. Form.”
“Eh, won’t you rust?”

As I was leaving, I overheard such conversation from behind me, but is there even a reason to enter water in that form? If I remember right, because of the purification function (Robot doesn’t understand how it works either), she can stay clean permanently even without taking the armor off.
Well then, more time has passed than I expected. I can’t sleep in tomorrow, so it’s about time I went home and slept.
As I walked back towards the mansion, a man came into view.

“Fuu, as expected it’s hard to move…! I can’t wear that outfit again, but just by wrapping a cloth around my waist in a skirt-like fashion, I can train in a different way from usual—oops, gfh?! S-shit. It’s good for training, but if I lose my balance for a bit, I end up tripping. But I won’t lose!”

Let’s pretend I didn’t see him.
I ignored Chartreuse, who had cloth wrapped around him like Cyan’s outfit but without a slit and walked away… I hope no rumors start spreading that you become weird when you come to Shiki.

“Wow, that’s amazing, Madame! It’s wonderful that the Austin family has a lady like you! I shall meet you again when I go to the capital next time!”
“Fufu, I want you to treat me not as a member of the Austin family, but as a mere woman today…”
“Oh, my apologies! Well then, let us return to my room and continue, haha!” 

Let’s pretend I didn’t see anything.
If any problems arise, I’ll ask the people from Khaki’s family to take care of it, though I think Khaki himself would take the responsibility if any problems arose. Plus his family has both power and wealth.

“Beau, beau, beauty~…. Fuu, the moonlight feels good…”

Let’s pretend I didn’t see anything.
How long is Ms. Schwarz planning to stay like that?
It’s been hours since I last saw her and she’s still striking that pose. She’s even more exposed now. I hope she doesn’t catch a cold.
I feel like I’ve seen many mentally exhausting things, but ignoring them is one of the most important things when you live in Shiki. If I dealt with them one by one, I wouldn’t be able to stay sane. Sometimes when you ignore them, they come back twice more annoying, so it’s hard to strike the balance.
Anyway, I returned to the entrance of the mansion, so I took a deep breath and put my hand on the door.
Well then, should I just go to sleep like this? Or should I drink something to warm me up a bit and go to bed after calming down?
I’m wearing a coat, but since it’s thin, I feel a little cold so I want to warm myself up from the inside out, but I’m also a bit lazy to make a warm drink. Taking a bath is just as troublesome, but if I heat it up, it might get noisy and wake everybody up. Deciding that I’d just go to sleep as I was, I opened the door and went inside.

“Oh, welcome back, Lord Clo.”

Lady Violet was at the entrance.
To be more exact, when I came back, she came out of the living room and ran up to me.
Just as I was dumbfounded, Lady Violet stood in front of me, looking pristine.

“Uhm… What’s wrong, Lady Violet?”

I thought she was asleep, so I quietly went outside without telling anyone.
That’s why I didn’t think she would be specifically waiting here for me…

“Well, if I don’t pay attention, you’ll keep sewing without going to sleep, Lord Clo. When I went to your room with a warm drink to urge you to take a rest, you weren’t there so I got worried, but it looks like everything’s fine so I’m relieved.”

Contrary to my thoughts, she was really waiting for me.
It’s already late at night and Lady Violet probably also wants to sleep because she has the Lord’s work at noon tomorrow. She was even worried about me and waited for me. If I had returned a little later, she might have changed her clothes and gone to look for me.

“Oh yeah, I made hot milk to warm you up. I just heated it up, so it probably hasn’t gone cold yet. Will you drink it, Lord Clo?”

Lady Violet smiled, as if I’d have come back at the perfect timing. She asked me with a slightly proud expression, like a child who had prepared a present.
… If you look at me with that expression, I won’t be able to refuse even if I was tired and wanted to go to sleep right away. My exhaustion went away all at once.

“I’ll drink it. I was just thinking that I wanted something warm.”
“I can’t really guarantee the taste, so don’t compare it to Gray’s.”
“Yes, I know. It’s probably better than what I’d make, so I’m looking forward to it.”
“That’s a sly way of wording it.”

We went to the living room for the hot milk that had been prepared and I sat close together with Lady Violet.
We chatted together, tilting our cups while the other person was talking.
As the warmth spread through my body, I felt a different part of me being filled as well.

I think I’ll sleep well today.
