Chapter 24 – Mabel and Agnis Talk About Secrets

After a while, it was time for the bathroom to open, so we decided to disperse.
I returned to my room, and General Reisenga decided to go to the Demon Lord Rukie to report about this matter.

“… Ma, Mabel! Can we talk for a bit?”

Agnis stopped Mabel from returning.
Then they said that they were going to have a chat.

──────────────────

── Mabel perspective ──

Mabel and Agnis headed to the balcony of the castle.
The sun is already setting and the lines of the mountain ridge are dyed red.
There are no signs of people around.
It was just the right place for talking about secrets.

“T, thank you very much for this time.
Coming with Thor-sama and lending me your maid clothes.
Thanks to you, I was able to calm down and try on this pendant.”

“Yes, Agnis-sama”

“I will wash the maid clothes and return them later.
And when I return to the territory, I will prepare a thank-you item for Thor-sama and Mabel.
And then… then!”

“You don’t have to be in a rush.”

Mabel had a gentle smile in the setting sun.

“I won’t be leaving.
I’m always in this castle … because I’m always beside Thor-sama.”

“… Mabel, you’re so lucky”

“Yes, I am grateful to be the attendant of Thor-sama.”

Mabel closes her eyes and joined her hands and prayed.

“I can’t believe it’s only been a few days since Thor-sama came to the Demon territory, … but I feel so natural being beside Thor-sama.”

“Mabel…”

“But Her Majesty didn’t say that there could only be one attendant.
If Agnis wants to do the same job, why don’t you talk to Her Majesty?”

“…I, I … I don’t think it’s possible for me yet.”

Agnis turned bright red and shook her head.

“I just started to wear normal clothing … I think it’s better for me to get used to my new life.
I also want to study various things and be able to properly use the [User-support].”

“Agnis-sama …is splendid.”

“Otherwise, I might be a bother to Thor-sama and Mabel, right?”

Agnis laughed as her hair fluttered in the evening breeze.

“Once I can support Thor-sama properly, then … I might have the same role as Mabel.
I look forward to working with you, senpai!”

“I understand.
At that time, we will be senpai and kouhai.”

Mabel took Agnis’ hand and nodded.

“I’m looking forward to it.
Agnis-sama”

“Yes”

“I’m sorry.
I said something arbitrarily without knowing that Agnis was thinking so much.”

“You don’t have to apologize.”

Agnis looked at the childhood friend in front of her, with a troubled face,

“Mabel is always like that.
Having the habit of giving priority to other people, instead of yourself.”

“Is that so?”

“That’s right.
When I was a kid, when Agnis burned Mabel, you were crying, but trembling, you said that it was fine.”

“That was a failure.
I should have smiled while saying that.”

“… Mou”

Agnis took Mabel’s hand.

“But I’m glad I made friends with Mabel again.”

“Me too, Agnis-sama.”

Mabel smiles gently and stroked Agnis’ hair.

“But when there are other people, it might be better to think a little more about the wording.
General Reisenga forgave me, but for the time being, we still have different positions and statuses.”

“I know.
That’s why we … including when were with Thor-sama, can speak freely to each other.”

“Okay, only when there is only use 3, right?”

“Yeah, and then … this.”

Agnis took a black stone out of her maid’s pocket.
It was a small stone.
Smaller than the pinkie’s fingernail.
With the stone in both hands, Agnis said,

“This is a stone that Agnis found earlier in my father’s territory.
I want you to give it to Thor-sama.”

“Is it an Alchemy material?”

“Thor Regus-sama said earlier that he wanted something that could be used as a material for alchemy.
It may be too small to use but,”

Agnis continued, staring at a small black stone.

“This is a mysterious stone that doesn’t melt even at high temperatures.
That’s why I was holding onto it.
I wonder if Thor-sama would be interested in this …”

“Okay, but shouldn’t Agnis hand it over yourself?”

Mabel shook her head,

“I think that would make Thor happy too, right?”

“Well, that is …”

Agnis’ cheeks turned bright red.
Hold the chest of the maid outfit with a white palm.
Seeing her skin gradually turning red, Mabel reaffirmed that the [health promotion pendant] was working well.
She nodded and waited for Agnis’ words.

“N, now that in the end … it’s embarrassing to meet each other.
From the time I met him until today, Thor-sama … has seen various of things.”

“That is …perhaps is it that?”

Mabel covered her hot cheeks.

“Is it because you jumped without your underwear on? But that was just a moment, and you don’t have to worry about it too much…”

“…………”

“Huh? Was that not it?”

“…Th, that is”

“Please tell me, Agnis-sama.
I will use it as a reference when serving Thor-sama.”

“Use it as Reference!?”

“I also owe Thor-sama a debt.
This Mabel will … show what Agnis did before… If Thor-sama wants it, I’ll offer it to him…”

“… Wa, wawawa”

“… Ah, what else did Agnis do?”

“………… errr”

“You seem embarrassed.
The [Health promotion pendant] is also shining.
You must be thinking about something similar to that jump.”

“Ma, Mabel!! Don’t deduce it!! “

“B, But, but … I’m the attendant of Thor-sama.
I am the senpai of Agnis-sama.
If that makes Thor-sama ha, happy, I am resolved to do the same thing as Agnis-sama.”

“W, wait, Mabel.
Wait a moment.”

The flustered Mabel and Agnis.
Mabel nods as if she’s ready, and Agnis holds her bright red face.
Then, suddenly, Mabel looked up and said,

“By the way, Thor-sama and Agnis-sama met in the bathroom yesterday.
Perhaps something happened there.
Maybe the salamander in the water heater might know something── “

“I surrender! Mabel’s deduction skill is too overpowered! I will teach you!!!”

In this way, Agnis talked about yesterday, how she was practicing how to control Fire magic with salamanders at the water heater without wearing clothes.
We also talked about how Thor-sama reacted.
In the end, Mabel and Agnis made a promise that “this will be kept a secret except for Thor”.

Mabel came up with a new event to serve Thor, but that was another story.
