Chapter 114 : Future Person?
Early morning, half a month after Lumilus’s battle for defense―
「Fufufu… Good morning, Tama♡」
In the room of their house, Tama woke up from his slumber in between Aria’s twin melons.
Aria gently brushed her hand on Tama’s head.
Her expression was as gentle as a saint.
Stella, Lily, and Faeri were still asleep on their own beds.
Aria went out of the room with Tama in her embrace as silently as possible to not awaken the trio. She headed to the washbasin on the first floor to wash her face.
Besides Aria, who washed her face at the washbasin, Tama also washed his face with his forefoot.
After that, Aria brushed her teeth and changed her clothes. With all this taken care of, Aria was about to make breakfast for everyone, but―
She heard a series of knocks on the door.
「…? I wonder who would come for a visit at this time?」
Both Aria and Tama tilted their heads, wondering about the identity of the visitor.
Just like that, Aria carried Tama in her embrace as she walked to the entrance of the house.
「Hello, Aria-chan. Can you forgive me for disturbing you at such a time?」
A handsome young man stood in front of the entrance with a troubled look on his face.
「Cedric-sama! Ah, good morning! Is something the matter? Moreover… who are they?」
What really surprised Aria was the fact that the young man―the knight captain of this city—had come in person just to meet her.
But then, Aria’s line of sight moved on the two people standing by his side.
One of them was a black-haired loli with side-up hairdo, clad in a priest-like white robe; the other was a girl who had worn an overcoat, and a pair of rabbit-like ears sprouted from the top of her bluish silver hair. The second was clearly a girl from 〝Rabbit ears race〟.
The former looked to be around ten years old, while the latter looked around eighteen or nineteen years old.
「Well, the situation is rather complicated you see… May we enter the house to explain the situation inside? I think Vulcan will come in a while too.」
「… I understand, please come in.」
Aria allowed the three to enter the house.
（This flag… don’t tell me it’s a premonition for another big battle…）
Tama’s face immediately hardened as he guessed the same thing as Aria.
Aria then went up to the second floor to wake up Stella and the others.
Just as Cedric had said, Vulcan arrived by the time Stella and co. went down to the first floor.
「Great! Now let’s start with self-introductions, but… let me confirm one thing. You girls are not joking, right?」
Cedric asked the loli and the rabbit-eared girl, who sat by his side.
Aria and co. tilted their heads as if a huge 「「「？」」」 had appeared on top of their heads.
「I will start then! My name is May Izayoi Toudou! I’m the daughter of the Hero Rin and the Archmage Maiya. I’m a time traveler who comes from the future.」
The loli who spoke with an adorable voice was May.
Aria and co. looked at May with dumbfounded expressions on their faces as they said in unison, 「「「… EH?」」」.
Meanwhile, Vulcan and Cedric, who could somehow remain calm in such a situation, pressed their temples as if they were having a headache.
（Time traveler… who comes from the future? Does that mean the girl called May is a future person?）
Tama pondered the matter while enjoying Aria’s embrace.
Although it sounded like a scam, these girls were brought by Cedric, the knight captain himself. Besides, Cedric had already confirmed that they weren’t joking.
The reason was simple: the two girls were really bad at lying.
「I know that you’re baffled by this news. I mean, I was also really surprised when this child… when May-chan suddenly visited my mansion.」
「I was also shocked, nyan. But, I can’t help myself from believing her.」
Cedric and Vulcan broke the ice for Aria and co., who still had indescribable expressions on their faces.
「Eer… if this child… Mei-chan’s identity is really as she said, that’ll make her… Cedric-sama’s niece, right?」
Having no idea about what to say in that kind of situation, Aria unintentionally asked this question.
However, that spontaneous question seemed to be just right for the situation.
「Aah… you’re right, Aria-chan. Yes, May-chan is my niece. I couldn’t believe it at first, but I noticed it when talking to her. This child resembles my little― I mean Maiya-kun’s and Rin-chan’s features.」
「Right, nyan. She inherited Maiya-chan’s eyes, but her lips and nose are like Rin-chan’s!」
For some reason, both Cedric and Vulcan replied to Aria’s question with silly looks on their faces.
Those similarities weren’t the only evidence.
After nodding upon hearing Vulcan and Cedric, May opened her mouth and said, 「Please take a look!」. She then spread her arms.
Thereupon, a clump of jet-black light and silver light appeared on the top of the palm of her hands.
「The one on the right hand is the holy element… and the one on the left is… No way! Darkness element!?」
Aria said in a surprised voice.
Darkness element―it was something Aria had seen just a while ago when Cedric and Alisha had used it with their weapons as the catalyst. It was the strongest element, which could only be used by the people who had received the divine protection of Maiya, the archmage.
Yet, the girl in front of them, May, used two elements without any catalyst or equipment.
「May-cha— No, so May-sama is really the daughter of Archmage-sama!」
Aria had no choice but to accept that fact.
Besides, Aria had also heard that the Archmage, Maiya, was currently living in 〝A Certain Place〟 with his spouses and his newborns.
That meant if May really was his daughter, there was a mismatch with her age.
Cedric and Vulcan both nodded in a response to Aria’s words.
All this time, Stella, Lily, and Faeri still displayed confused looks on their faces as if there was a huge 「「「？」」」 above their heads.
At that moment—
「My apologies for disturbing you when you’re still unclear about my situation, but I come bearing bad news.」
The rabbit-eared girl, who sat on Cedric’s left, opened her mouth.
