keep it short so that it isn’t a hindrance when I have the doctor examine my body.
In fact, I would like to grow it to a beautiful length… like Agnis Frazad.”

“You can do that when your condition improves.
I brought this with me for that purpose.”

I pulled out the [Footbath] from my [Ultra-Small Simple Warehouse].

“I’d like to hear your detailed feedback regarding its effects on your condition.
How does it affect the magic in your body, where is the stagnant magic and how does it flow? I will then decide how often you should use the [Footbath].”

“Understood, Thor Canaan-sama.”

“And Agnis, that thing too.”

“Yes sir.”

Agnis took out a small package.

She held it out to Princess Sophia with both hands.

“This is a pair of underwear made of light-attribute [Magic Cloth].
Please try it on and check the size.
Also, if you would allow me to take your measurements later…”

“Thank you very much.
Of course, I will allow you to take my measurements.”

Princess Sophia nodded readily.

Agnis was surprised by her reaction.

“Is that all right, Princess Sophia?”

“What is the matter, Agnis Frazad?”

“I heard that the Imperial family was wary of demi-humans.”

“You are a friend of Thor Cannan, are you not?”

“Yes, I am.
Agnis is loyal to Thor-sama.”

“Then there is no issue.
I aim to be Thor Canaan’s fiancee.
I can’t be uncomfortable with Thor Canaan-sama’s friend touching my body.”

“U-understood.”

Agnis was surprised.
The other party was a princess of the Empire.

“Firstly, you need to use the [Footbath].
We can discuss taking your measurements and the magic circle after we settle down.
Is that all right?””

“Yes, but I would like to make a request regarding the use of the [Footbath].”

Holding the [Footbath] in her hand, Princess Sophia said.

“May I use this in my bedroom, if possible? I believe that I will be able to better perceive the changes in my magic power and the state of my body in a quiet environment.”

“Sure.
Please go ahead.”

“Then, I will see you soon.”

Saying that, Princess Sophia entered her bedroom.

When the door closed, Agnis sighed in relief next to me.

“Are you nervous?”

“Yes… this is the first time Agnis has been outside the Demon Territory.”

That reminds me.

Naturally, she had rarely even left her home.

However, this time, she offered to be my escort.
She said that she wanted to experience the outside world.

“Thor-sama sure is amazing.”

“…… Eh?”

“When I am with Thor-sama, it is as if my world is expanding.”

“Thor-sama helped me reconnect with Mabel, and now you’re showing me the world outside of the Demon Territory.”

“…… Agnis-san.”

“So, I want to return the favor.
Agnis swore to Thor-sama in the name of the
Primordial Flame.
I don’t expect much, but……”

“I’m curious about the meaning of swearing ‘in the name of the Primordial Flame’.
Isn’t it about time you told me?”

“…… I’ll tell you on my birthday.”

Agnis clutched her [Health Promotion Pendant] and shifted her gaze.

“In a short while, Agnis’s birthday will arrive.
I’ll be…”

“Understood.”

Well, if that’s how it’s going to be, I don’t blame her.

Since it’s called the “Primordial Flame,” there must be circumstances involving someone possessing the blood of Ifrit, the flame giant.

If she wants me to wait until her birthday, I’ll wait.

I should remember to bring a present.

As I was thinking that…

“I apologise, Thor Canaan-sama.
Could you please come help me?”

I heard Princess Sophia’s voice from behind the bedroom door.

“I’m afraid the [Footbath] isn’t functioning properly.
Could you please have a look at it?”

“Ah, yes.
I’ll be right there.”

The magic stone was probably depleted.

…… Ah.
Come to think of it, I hadn’t ever replaced it.

I had decided not to replace it until it was depleted in order to determine how long it could be used.
It seems that it ran out of magic power faster than I estimated.

I walked up to the bedroom door and knocked.

“It’s Thor Canaan.
May I come in?”

“Yes, please come in.”

I opened the bedroom door after confirming Princess Sophia’s response.

“The magic power of the magic stone seems to be expended.
I’ll replace it immediately.”

“Please, Thor Canaan-sama.”

Princess Sophia looked at me and smiled.

She was clad only in her underwear, sitting on the bed in a relaxed position.

The room was dimly lit and the curtains were shut.

In the faint light, her white skin attracted my gaze.

Princess Sophia tilted her head as she met my gaze, her cherry-red hair swaying above her shoulders.

She said her hair was short in order to avoid being a hindrance when the doctor examined her.

However, because her hair was not covering her body, I could distinctly make out her figure.

Princess Sophia’s underwear only emphasised her figure further.

Her underwear was made of light-attribute [Magic Cloth], so over half of it was transparent.

Princess Sophia sported a slender body.

Her skin was white, likely due to a lack of exposure to light.

Even so, the curves of her body were pleasing to the eyes and her feminine bulges were distinct.

I should properly take the measurements for her underwear.

I had made them in Mabel’s size, who was closest to her in height, but it seems they were slightly oversized.

I’ll call Agnis and have her take her measurements…

─ ─ No, that’s not it.

I couldn’t help but take a closer look.

I mean, why is she in her underwear?

“Your Highness.
Your figure…”

“I have arranged it so that you can clearly examine the flow of magic power in my body.”

“I see.
If you were wearing clothes, it would interfere with perceiving the flow of magic power.”

“As expected of Thor Canaan-sama.
What wonderful insight.”

“I am honored by your praise.”

“However, the underwear you gifted me will not interfere with the flow of magic power.”

“That makes sense.”

“So, would you please fix the [Footbath]?”

“But more importantly, Your Highness…”

“Yes?”

“Since I’m here, you might as well wear your clothes.”

“Eh? But, this is a medical procedure, is it not?”

Princess Sophia tilted her head, curiosity apparent in her expression.

I see.

Princess Sophia was sickly.
That’s why she even trimmed her hair so that it would not interfere with her medical treatment.

For her, removing her clothes for medical treatment was a matter of course.

It was an oversight on my part, and it made sense.

“Besides, I am striving to become Thor Canaan-sama’s fiancée.”

Princess Sophia placed her hand on her chest and murmured.

“I should not conceal that I am wearing undergarments gifted to me by my fiancée.
I believe courtesy demands that I have them examined properly.”

She was very brazen.

I felt like it was wrong of me to be discomposed.

(…… I wish this was the Demon Territory.)

Princess Sophia, wearing only translucent underwear, was stunningly beautiful.

I wanted to continue staring at her, and if this was the Demon Territory, I would have been fine with the situation as it was.

While Princess Sophia was using the [Footbath], I would be able to ask her to explain how the light magic power travels through the body.
It would have been an invaluable reference for my alchemy.

However, this was Imperial territory.

There were Imperial soldiers stationed outside, and maids on the first floor of the mansion.

If they burst into the room, it would cause a grave issue.
Even if Princess Sophia agreed to it, the Imperial people would not allow me to be in a room with an Imperial princess in her underwear like this.

Agnis and I were here as messengers from the Demon Territory.

If we caused any trouble, Rukie would be implicated as well.

Therefore…

“I apologise.
Agnis-san, would you come here for a moment?”

I decided to call Agnis.

“Yes, Thor-sama.”

“It seems circumstances have changed.
I’ll replace the magic stone for the [Footbath], and you, Agnis, take her measurements.”

“Understood!”

I confirmed Agnis’s reply as I quickly took the [Footbath].

I explained to Princess Sophia, who was looking at me with a puzzled expression, that the order in which we were going to do things had changed.

Then, I went straight to the living room.

“Then, Your Highness, I’ll see you later.”

“I’ll see you later as well.”

“U-um… Your Royal Highness…… Do you have to be in your underwear while your measurements are taken……?”

Bang.

I shut the bedroom door and took a deep breath.

“What a dangerous person Princess Sophia is.”

I can’t leave her alone.

I can’t let her return to the capital.

With that thought in mind, I began to replace the magic stone in the [Footbath].
