magic.”

 Mabel said suddenly.

“I heard that Pixies are a magic-sensitive race, born with a variety of attributes.
Most of the time they are water and wind Pixies, but sometimes fire and earth Pixies also appear.”

“So you’re saying there are also dark and light Pixies?”

“That’s right.”

 I see.

 If one person is born with one attribute, then there are also Pixies with the light attribute.
THat’s easy to understand.

“The Pixies are shy, but they do accept requests.
So, If you make a formal request, I’m sure they’ll cooperate with your [UV-cut parasol] experiment.”

“That would be great, but …… that might be asking too much.”

 In fact, just being able to meet and talk to a Pixie is enough.

 They are legendary.

 In addition to that, if I make a request and ask them to help me experiment with magic items…..

“I don’t know how to repay them as an alchemist.”

“No, if it’s Thor-sama who has contributed a lot to the Demon Territory, there wouldn’t be a problem.”

“But I’m getting more than enough already.”

 Rukie appointed me as her direct subordinate and gave me a workshop.

 In that place, I can create whatever I want.

 That’s enough for now.

 If I were to receive more things, I wouldn’t know how to return the favour.

 For the time being, I’m planning to make the Demon Territory a more comfortable world than the world of the Heroes,……, but at the moment, I don’t know how to do it.

That’s why I’m trying to remake the lost magic sword and return some of the favours.

“I think that Thor-sama can be more selfish than that.”

“More selfish?”

“Then, I’m making “making Thor-sama more selfish” my goal during this trip.”

“What kind of goal is that?”

“A maiden’s goal!”

 Mabel laughed, averting her gaze for some reason.

 I don’t understand what she’s thinking.

 …… Selfishness….

 The only thing I could think of is experimenting with the [Magic Cloth] with Agnis and Mabel.

“Thor-sama.
We’ll be arriving at the Western Forest shortly!”

 I was thinking about this and that when Agnis called out from the coachmen seat.

 When I looked out the window, I saw a large forest with tall trees that stretched from the top to the foot of the mountain at the end of the road.

 This was the Western Forest, the territory of the Pixie.

 After a while, the carriage stopped and Mabel and I got out.

 The road was cut off at this point.

 At the end, there was a large stump.

 The cut has been levelled to make it easier to place things.

 Next to the stump is a large stone.
This should be a paperweight to hold down the letter so that it doesn’t fly away.

“Is this the “communication stump”?”

“Yes.
Thor-sama.”

 Agnis nodded.

 She looked at the top of the stump mysteriously.

“I instructed the scout to place the letter here this morning, saying ‘Alchemist Thor Caanan-sama is coming to visit the Pixies.”

“…… The letter is gone.”

“……it’s gone for sure.”

 Agnis, me and Mabel were craning our necks in front of the stump.

 The Pixies should have put a response on the stump after they took the letter.

 But there was nothing on the stump.

 The stone used as a paperweight was next to the stump, so it’s not like the letter was blown away by the wind.

 As I was thinking about this…

“……I have been waiting for you.”

 A small figure appeared from behind the stump.

 White skin.
Black, straight hair.
A large leaf was wrapped around her body instead of clothing.

 And on her back, were beautiful translucent wings.

 Hiding behind a stump, the little Pixie was looking at us.

“N-nice to meet you… I’m the Pixie René.
…… U-um, ……”

“Nice to meet you.
I’m an alchemist under the direct command of Her Majesty the Demon Lord, Thor Canaan.”

 I sat down on the ground, to make sure that we were at the same eye level.

 I have learned a lot in the empire about the pressure of being looked down upon by a large opponent.

 My father and the noble warriors were all big and loud.

“I have been given a workshop and a mansion in General Reisenga’s territory by the kindness of Her Majesty the Demon Lord, Rukie Evergard.
The location of it is close to the territory of the Pixies, so I came to greet you.”

“I am Mabel Refrain, Thor-sama’s maid.”

“I’m Agnis Freizad, Thor Canaan-sama’s bodyguard.”

 Mabel and Agnis also sat down next to me.

 The three of us sat side by side, our eyes lowered, facing the little Pixie.

“I’m glad that I could meet a legendary Pixie, René-san.”

“Th- Thank you for your kind words.
I will introduce myself again.
I am René, the Pixie of Darkness.
…..”

 Eventually, the Pixie slowly appeared from behind a stump.

 As if she has resolved herself, she walked in front of us and looked up.

“I have never talked to a human before, but I’m …… surprised to see how gentle and kind they are.”

“Really?”

“Yes.
According to legends, humans are more powerful than demons and love to change the world with their great magic.
……

 That’s probably the heroes of the other world.

 At that time the Pixies probably lived more to the south.

 To the little Pixies, the heroes that used large-scale magic must have put enormous pressure on them.

“If ……Alchemist-sama is such a kind person, …… I can talk to him with peace of mind.”

 With her black hair swaying in the wind, the Pixie René nodded, slowly walking towards my knees.

“May I be on your hand?”

“Hand?”

“I think that it would be easier for us to talk this way.
If you don’t mind.”

“That’s fine, please go ahead.”

I put out my hand, and René jumped onto it.

 She’s so small and light.

 I felt that if I touched her she might break it.

“I can’t believe that a …… Pixie would go on someone’s hand.
……”

“Agnis has never …… heard of such a case either.”

“It is a sign of trust …… that we Pixies go on the hands of humans, demi-humans and demons.”

 René’s small body was trembling

 I know how she feels.

 The little Pixie would be crushed if I closed my hands.

 They’re so small, delicate and shy.

 I understand why standing on a person’s palm is trusting them but….

“But I haven’t done anything to make you trust me that much.
……”

“It-It’s because I-I have a request for you.”

 The Pixie René closed her wings, which had been previously spread out.

With this, she wouldn’t be able to fly and her life is completely in my hands.
René, the Pixie, raised her head and looked at me.

“This is an indication that I trust you, so please help us.
Alchemist-sama.”

“No, you don’t have to go that far…….”

 I brought the palm of my hand up to the stump and René moved onto the stump.

“I’m an alchemist under the direct command of Her Majesty the Demon Lord, so I’ll listen to any requests you have.”

“You can’t say it like that.”

 But René, the Pixie, shook her head.

“After we came to the Demon Territory, we have been given the right to govern ourselves.
But we have not gained any significant achievements, so we cannot make any one-sided requests.”

 She was very serious.

“In the first place, Pixies can only wear shabby clothes made from leaves like this.
It is rude to appear in public in such a manner.
But since I’m asking you for a favour, I think it’s only natural that I entrust you with the authority to kill me.”

 She said earnestly.

“In the first place I was chosen to welcome you because, like Her Majesty the Demon lord, I have the dark attribute and can control dark magic.
If such a person was to offer their life, they would probably accept our requests.”

 It was too heavy.

“…… Um, Mabel, Agnis-san?”

 I asked them both.

“Are the Pixies always so serious and have such a depressing personality?”

“No, I’ve never heard of anything like that…… before.”

“I know that they take their requests very seriously, but I didn’t know about their …… personalities.”

 Mabel and Agnis are also surprised.

Both of them didn’t know about the Pixies’ personalities.

 By the way, the reason that the Pixies don’t appear in public was just casually leaked.

 -The Pixie can only wear clothes made of leaves.

 -It’s rude to appear in public in such a way.

 So that’s the reason why the Pixies rarely appeared in public.

 I’m surprised.

“Please use me as a material for alchemy, in return please …”

“Wait.”

 I raised my hand to stop René from talking.

“Let’s stop the talk about, alchemy materials, and offering your body.
I have no intentions of doing so.”

“But I can’t just ask a one-sided request…”

“If that’s the case, can you introduce me to a Pixie who can use light magic?”

 I said.

“In fact, I’m looking for someone who can use light magic to experiment with my magic items.
I’ve heard rumours that there are some Pixies who can use light magic, so I would like you to introduce me to them.”

 I didn’t mean to force you to help me.

 But I have something to request too.

“So you had business with that child too.”

 René opened her eyes wide to my words.

“To tell you the truth, I had something to request about that child too.”.

“Is that so?”

“Yes, I would like to ask the alchemist-sama to save her, who has the light attribute…….”

 René the Pixie hugged my index finger with both hands and said so.

“Because that child posses light magic power, her body is weak and she’s frequently bedridden.
Please save Soleil, Alchemist Thor Canaan-sama.”
