e inside.

Drink it…myself.”

“It’s okay, just open your mouth and drink.”

I don’t know if it’s really alright but I drink what was kindly offered, I swallowed the liquid as it is poured.

In a gentle honey-like sweetness, a slight herb-like taste and a refreshing citrus-like liquid permeates my throat and seems to come back to life.

I kept drinking what was my pouring into my mouth.

“It’s a herbal drink that’s used when the throat is hurting, it sounds like you liked it.”

“It was…delicious.Thank you.”

The hoarseness of my voice is almost gone, and the utterance is also no longer a problem.

“All right, you’re in better shape.
I’d like to ask you a few questions, but I’m afraid to make Mintz wait.”

After that, we walked silently for a while and arrived at a relatively large three-story building.

“This is where we work the guild, and I’ll show you around but I’ll show you later.
Mintz will be waiting, so let’s go to our office.”

As we entered the guild, there was a lot of different races of beast people, and some of them are armed with swords and armor, and are often consulting in groups.

The staff were very friendly and helpful, keeping the room clean and comfortable.

“If it isn’t the assistant branch master, is it not your day off?”

“No, I’m just here for something, could you tell Mintz to come to my room?”

“I will.”

After lightly exchanging greetings, Master and Douglas went up the stairs to the third floor and proceeded to the innermost room.

It was like a reception room where you can greet people and there was a desk and a chair which were prepared for office work.

Master sat on the sofa in front of the room and, as usual, sat me on his knees, while Douglas sat across from us.

“Um, Master….
I feel sorry for you having me on your knees I can sit alone…”

“No, there is no problem with your position here.”

I don’t know what you mean.

“No, but… That…… I don’t think I’m the right age for you put me on your knees.”

“How old are you kidddo?”

A knock sounded at the door of the room the same time Douglas asked that question.

“Branch master, it’s Mintz.
May I come in?”

“Yeah, come in.”

“Excuse me, him being in here means that the curse has been safely solved!”

While saying so, Mintz sat on the next sofa to me and checked my neck.

“Oh good, it came off cleanly.”

“Yes, thank you for everything.”

I was really grateful for his help so I bowed my head down.

“Well, we got off course, so kid.
How old are you?”

“Oh yes, I don’t remember what happened before I became a slave very well.
It may not be accurate as I do not know exactly how long it has been while I was in slavery.
Maybe, 16 or 17 I think.”

When I came here, I was about to be a junior high school student, so I suppose I have been in slavery for about four to five years.

I knew that there was no choice but to answer my actual original age.

However, all of them were completely frozen for some reason.

“That, may not be really accurate, but it’s about the time I’m aware of.……”

“I can’t believe It……”


“A lie…..”

Douglas murmur something, Master had on an grim face, and Mintz was looking up at the ceiling.

“Um, I’m sorry.
How old do I look……?”

“Hm – 10 years old or something?”

“I can’t really see you being of age.”

“That’s right…….
I have the same opinion.”

“Ah, how old are adults in this country?”

“It’s 15.”

Although I indeed have a baby face, it is unexpected that I was seen as so young.

But, if that’s the case, I’m convinced by the attitude Master and Douglas treat me like a child.

“Um, I’m very sorry…..”

“No, it’s not that bad….
Yeah, it’s convenient like this.”


“Well, that’s my story, my exact age can be determined when I make the guild tag, so I’m relieved.”

“Well then, can you tell me your name?”

Master asked such, and I realize that I didn’t even name myself even though I after I could speak again.

“I’m sorry, my name is Shinra Chikayuki.
Master, Mr.
Douglas, thank you for buying me.
I was prepared to die as it was, so I am really grateful not only for the treatment but also for feeding me and a warm bed.”

I bow my head deeply with the intention of introducing myself and expressing my gratitude.

On Master’s lap…..


Finally, it took me awhile to mtl this chapter.

Sorry for the delay hope you enjoyed.
