“We’ve arrived. Master.”
“Please sit here. I’ll assist you.”
The butler and the maid, who stood side by side snugly, pointed to the pretty sofa.
The golden light adorned the white sofa, it’s armrests glistening gracefully in the sunlight.
‘A sofa in the garden…….’
The butler’s interior sense was lousy. I was half liberated.
Then, a few fur strands intruded my lips.
I pulled the fluff out of my mouth. As I’m wondering what this is, I looked around to see the maids swaying thick cotton blankets right next to me.
What kind of joke is this?
“It’s such a windy day. Will this be enough?”
“It surely is cold in the morning.”
The head maid’s right arm, Lindsey, and left arm, Lia, looked at the head maid, Sarah, with worried faces.
(QC/N: right/left arm refers to second-in-command.)
TL/N: I turned into a maid :0 I got isekai
PR/N: congratulations ( ´･･)ﾉ(._.`)
“We can’t help it. All we can do is give this a shot.”
Sarah hugged the fluffy quilt with a very rigorous face, as if she was going to war.
Sarah took the lead and walked forward, whilst Lindsey and Lia stood tall on either side of Sarah.
Anyone would’ve thought that some huge event was about to take place.
“It’s an ondol that we heated in a hurry.”
(QC/N: ondol = Korean floor heating system. Please Google if you wanna visualize!)
Lindsey ran up first and placed the warm stone in my arms.
I was forced to embrace it because it was heavy. Besides, I didn’t have the strength to move it myself.
Then Sarah approached me, flapping the blanket.
Sarah’s face expressed, “Don’t argue.” I watched as she wrapped the fluffy quilt around me as if it was a requirement.
I became more and more of a human salamander at the relentless touch of the seasoned and meticulous maids.
(QC/N: wrapped up in many layers like how a salamander has highly cornified outer layers of skin that renews periodically through its skin shedding process. And yes, I never thought I’ll be doing a mini research about salamanders for this lol. Welcome to science with Ame.)
After concluding her work, Sarah stepped down, wiping her forehead.
I made eye contact with Meia, who was kneeling down with a drenched attire.
Contrary to the words of the maids who made a fuss about the cold weather, the day was very peachy.
The warm morning sun and the gentle breeze almost dried up Meia’s clothes.
Meia with a peaceful face, looked at Nineina pitifully, who was shivering with embarrassment.
Even at the beginning, she sympathized for Nineina.
‘It’s a shame….’
I felt dizzy and shook my head.
Sarah was about to run to me straight away, but backed down at my call.
“Leave me alone…”
Nineina’s voice was also very bitter. That was due to her real feelings.
Sarah’s fierce gaze turned to Meia.
The blame was always on her.
When Sarah blames Meia first, the others will follow and stare at her.
‘You’re calling your Master out of my sight? If she catches a cold just after getting better, your master might really die!’
Meia and I understood Sarah’s ‘Speech with her eyes’ well.
Even after receiving harsh criticism from people, Meia came to reflect on herself rather than fearing them.
‘What’s wrong again…………?’
I haven’t done anything yet, but I was embarrassed when I saw Meia crying.
I felt uncomfortable because I felt like I was harassing a young child by calling in several people.
“First of all…”
I was going to ask Meia why she washed her horse here, but I was hesitant with the circumstances around us.
I was worried if her legs would hurt because everyone else was up and only she was on her knees for an hour.
I cleared my voice and spoke as stiff as possible, but it was hard to avoid expressing a little concern.
Having lived in modern times, making someone kneel for an hour felt like an inhumane treatment.
Though, of course, there was more to it here.
The punishment to keep the slaves on their knees and provide them with nothing for 3 days and nights was the present-day’s standard.
Then, they could lose their legs or die, and it’d happen quite frequently because the masters didn’t care about the well-being of the slaves.
“My honourable Master…”
I glanced away from Meia’s still weeping gaze.
“Why would you wash your horse here? Are you…?”
The words that were about to go out were clarified.
This was similar to when a kind teacher would ask for the student’s reasoning to soothe the student who just had an accident.
“I was very wrong and I apologize, my lord!”
Meia shouted, lying face down.
“No, No, I’m not trying to scold you. I’m asking why.”
I stuttered in panic and motioned for her to get up.
Meia, who noticed, slowly got up and answered my question.
“That horse is Kurz, whom I look after in the stable, and while I was bringing water to wash him, he escaped into the garden. I was surprised and chased him, but the water came out because Kurz accidentally touched the magic stone with his foot. I should have stopped him, but seeing him running around made me happy……”
Due to Meia’s personality, I didn’t think that she would’ve done that according to her own will.
‘It’s kind of cute.’
There was an innocent young horse who failed to grasp the situation.
It’s eyes seemed to be wide open, as if begging Nineina not to scold Meia.
In modern times, this was nothing to be angry about.
A girl running around with a horse whilst splattering water.
That was all.
But not here.
The slave dared to play tricks using their master’s magic stone.
That is the reality here.
‘How do you use this card?’
Nineina fixed the corners of her lips that were loosening softly and made up a cold voice.
“That’s no excuse, you should’ve taken good care of the horse. That’s your job.”
“I will accept any punishment sweetly.”
“It doesn’t make any money.”
“Please give me any harsh punishment.”
When I laid the groundwork, Meia hardened her face and said that.
The hardened eyes weren’t bad.
‘This would be useful.’
That’s the first impression I’d have to put to the test.
I’m worried. I’ve never punished anyone before.
“She should be punished, but I don’t know what kind of punishment I should give…..”
Meia heard me talking to myself again and asked.
I raised my chin and spoke as arrogantly as I could.
“I’m still thinking about it, I want to think about it for as long as possible, because I want to inflict a very heavy punishment.”
Although it was too pretentious, Maya nodded her head with a serious face.
“I’ll think about it for a day or so. Come to my room at this hour tomorrow.”
Meia’s shoulders drooped.
Meia and I are the same age, but Meia is more affectionate.
On the surface, she looks like a little boy, so she is quite cute.
“Get out of here.”
I almost laughed, but I sent Meia off without displaying it.
‘It’s not a one-time decision.’
For the time being, I was thinking of keeping Meia by my side whilst watching her too. How can I use the female heroine?
‘Of course, at the same time I’m alive, but…….’
Maybe it was a fleeting worry. It’s no use if I die.
“I want to be alone.”
I let the people go away.
If this was going to be a short-term life, I thought I should enjoy this sunshine as much as I could while I was in the garden.
Sitting idly in bed and being here was the same, but I was quite happy to see the sky.
I saw a huge oak tree full of green leaves.
The sunlit leaves shone white and regained a fresh green color.
This oak tree must have lived for at least a few hundred years.
Compared to trees, the human lifespan is short.
I wanted to have at least as much as the average lifespan of a human, much less than a tree.
“How long can I live?”
“It’ll be five months at the very most.”
I got a reply back to what I said casually. Or I got a casual reply back to what I said.
You asked, so I’ll tell you. Even if I’m a poor person with a short lifespan.
(QC/N: first sentence = what she thought Cassian was thinking when he replied.)
That man is probably the only person who can say that without hesitation.
I liked him, who doesn’t show a single sign of sympathy, so I smiled brightly.
That calm look made me happy.
I was in a good mood so my legs bounced happily.
