at the guild soon.”

 

“Yes! Then, Chika-kun, please be careful not to be reckless!”

 

Glenn-san climbed on Mintia and left, while saying so loudly.

 

“This is kind of lonely, isn’t it?”

 

[Gail] “You’ve got us.
We won’t give you time to feel lonely, so don’t worry.”

 

[Douglas] ” Chika, whenever you feel lonely, just tell us.”

 

Anyway, I’m still on top of the Rex, and a cuddly doll for Douglas-san.

 

“Speaking of which, I’d like to ask you, is there a word for mother in this world?”

 

“Yes, there is.
Don’t call the animus that gave birth to the child mother.”

 

I see.

 

“If that’s the case, then Gail’s mother would be my mother-in-law, but should I call her foster mother?”

 

“I’m not sure.
My mother is like my father.
They’re very peculiar, as I said before.”

 

Gail-san looked troubled.

 

“I understand.
I think I’ll start by saying hello to him and ask him myself.”

 

“There’s no need to be so uptight.”

 

“Yes!”

 

We didn’t have much time to look at the town, so we let Arvis and the others walked for a while.

 

Then, we reached a mansion with a huge garden.

 

[Gail] “Chika, this is my parents’ house.”

 

[Chika] “Whoa, it’s huge!”

 

[Douglas] “You can’t help but notice that it’s the home of a retired knight commander, right?”

 

[Gail] “Don’t worry, my parents don’t like to be extravagant, so they had to make do with this house to keep up appearances.
There are hardly any servants.
There’s no need to worry about it.”

 

I got off from Arvis and Gail-san took me by the hand.

 

When we walked through the gate and the garden, an old man dressed as a butler came running towards us from afar at great speed.

 

But his physique was frighteningly good.

 

Is he as large as Gale-san…?

 

“Young master! Young master!”

 

Upon seeing the old man’s face, Gale-san’s face was distorted.

 

“Young master! Welcome back! This Sebastian has been anxiously awaiting your return!”

 

“For God’s sake, will you stop calling me ‘young master’…?”

 

“What are you talking about? The young master will always be a young master to me.
No matter if he is forty or fifty, that will never change!”

 

“I see…”

 

I was surprised by the existence of an old butler named Sebastian.
When I was thinking that it would be perfect if he wore a monocle, I saw that he had one around his eye already.

 

I guessed from the shape of his ears that Sebastian was probably a bear, too.

 

“Well, then, young master! I see that you have finally found your partner.
Please allow this Sebastian to greet him as well.”

 

“Right.
Chika, this is Sebastian, the man who is in charge of everything in our house.
Can you show yourself to him?”

 

I hurriedly took off my hood and bowed deeply in front of Sebastian.

 

“I’m in Gale-san’s care.
I am Shinra Chikayuki.
I look forward to meeting you.”

 

When I finished bowing and looked at Sebastian-san, I saw that he had an astonished expression on his face.

 

“Young master, I have been trying to teach you the ways of humanity since you were a child.
And yet, for to make move to such an innocent boy, this Sebastian is shameful!”

 

[Gail] “Wa― Wait a minute, Sebastian.
Chika may look young, but he is a full-grown adult.”

 

“No.
This Sebastian will not be deceived by such a thing.
Such a young and adorable boy.
There is no way he could be a grown man.”

 

[Chika] “It is true! I may look like a child, but I’m 16 years old.
If you are in doubt, I can show you my tag.”

 

Sebastian seemed to be quite excited.

 

I’m not going to let Gail-san being humiliated like this.

 

“Hmm, he certainly has a calm manner of speaking and a graceful demeanor.
I shall beg your pardon.
I see, you have become the young master’s companion.
This Sebastian could not be happier for you.”

 

[Chika] “That’s not true.
I’m the one who’s always been indebted to Gail-san.”

 

“Not at all.
The fact that you are our young master’s partner makes you my master.
Please let me know if there is anything I can do for you, young mistress.”

 

T/N: Again.
The young mistress part only refers to the position of Sebastian’s young master’s partner.
Chika is a male, as we all know.

 

Sebastian-san gave us a deep and impressive bow.

 

T/N: Impressive bow.
Imagine a bow done by a legit aristocratic butler instead of commoners.
The form, the angle, everything is refined.
That kinda impressive bow.

 

[Chika] “The young mistress is a bit…”

 

[Sebastian] “So, Master Chikayuki, then?”

 

“No.
You can call me Chika, like everyone else.”

 

“Impossible, sir! There’s no way I can call young master’s partner that casually.”

 

[Gail] “Chika, I’m sorry, but will you please let Sebastian do as he pleases?”

 

[Chika] “I understand.
Then, Sebastian-san, I’ll be counting on you.”

 

“Please just call me Sebastian or Sebas.”

 

Ugh, it’s really difficult to do that.
Douglas-san, who had been watching the situation, took off his hood and opened his mouth.

 

T/N: Welcome to Asia! It’s a place where honorifics matter.
A lot.

 

” Sebastian, you’re still the same.
But I’m glad to see you’re doing well.”

 

“Oh my God, it’s Douglas-sama! But your arm is…”

 

“Yeah.
I’m sorry, can we talk about this later? It’s a long story to tell here.
I have to greet my master first.”

 

“You are right.
I’m sorry for prolonging our talk here.
So, let me take care of Arvis for you.
The Master and Mistress are already waiting for you in the hall.”

 

Sebastian took the reins of Rex and Noah, bowed deeply again, and left.

 

“Well then, shall we go?”

 

“Yes!”

 

Gail-san held my hand again and we reached the entrance of the house.

 

Gail-san’s parents are just up ahead.

 

I could feel my heart beating wildly just thinking about it.
