“” … “”
Takeo and Alice were worried.
This was the inside of a second variety store.
“Master, Alice-sama, this is good, isn’t it!”
Mia entered the dollhouse and was enjoying it.
There were two dollhouses in the store.
The first one was like a log house made from wood: Width500 x Depth400 x Height 500mm (This included the roof part)
The second one was like a store made from stone: Width450 x Depth360 x Height 350mm (It has a terrace roof)
“The ones that Mia likes, isn’t the inside height low? “
“Miss Alice also thinks so?”
Mia was enjoying the store-like dollhouse.
The height of the room was 25 cm, which was just barely enough for Mia’s height.
When seeing how much Mia liked it, it was hard to say “Why don’t you choose the other one?”…
But her head was almost reaching the ceiling… I thought that living at barely enough height might feel oppressive…
“Mia, try lying down inside and check if it’s not cramped?”
“Master, I can sleep without problems.”
Mia appeared from the entrance of the dollhouse with a big smile.
Both Takeo and Alice wondered, “if Mia likes it, then it should be fine?”
“Is that so? That’s good, Mia-chan.”
“Then, Mia, let’s decide on the bed inside.”
Mia flew to Alice’s shoulders, inserted her feet inside the shoulder straps, and sat down.
From the mansion to the store, she sat on the inside chest and side pockets of Alice and Takeo’s coat, on their shoulders and heads to confirm the comfort, but she had decided on Alice’s shoulder.
“By the way, what kind of bed did Mia use in your hometown forest?”
“Hmm … I lay out leaves.”
“You don’t cover yourself with anything?”
“The forest was not cold so I didn’t cover myself with anything.
The blanket? From yesterday… With that, I slept warmly.
That cloth is good.”
“So you like the blanket…
Then, let’s not make beds and make it so you can sleep around?
Soft material for the floor… For example, stacking several sheets of thick fabrics to make pillows and blankets…
Eating and drinking should always be on the rooftop, and the inside room should be used as a space for sleeping, shall we do it like this?”
Takeo devised a plan.
“Mia-chan, you’re ok if there’s no bed?”
…I have never slept on this thing called bed.
Usually, it’s on a tree, under a leaf, on a stone at the riverbed, in a hay, things like this… “
“It’s really living in the wilderness.
Didn’t you go back to your own home? “
Takeo listened to Mia’s daily life with a wry smile.[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
“For us, the forest is home so there is no particular place to sleep.”
“It’s very carefree.”
Alice also smiled.
“On the contrary, humans are strange.
Why do you live in the same building? “
“What?…. That’s because…”
Alice can’t answer Mia’s question right away.
Because she had a house, and her own room where this was the normal life, so she had never thought of that.
Because of that Alice turned her face to Takeo to ask for help.
“It’s to get a sense of security.”
“A sense of security?”
“Human beings are cowardly and weak.
So… I can’t stand being afraid of the enemies when going to sleep every time.
When Mia was in the woods, you slept with ease, right? “
“Certainly, I was sleeping with ease.
I see… A sense of security… I understand.”
Mia nodded as she was convinced.
Takeo thought in his mind, “There are various other reasons such as a sense of belonging, a desire to control the space, and bragging though.”
We tentatively decided on her dollhouse and chose Mia’s pillows and blankets.
Both were chosen by Mia on her own by touching them.
She seemed to like pillows that were fluffy and blankets that were soft.
The blanket was a human-sized one that was cut out to fit Mia, but the rest was re-sewn as Alice’s lap blanket.
While it was getting adjusted, Takeo and the others were looking around for their own accessories to kill time.
After paying a total of 5 silver coins, they left the store after asking them to bring the dollhouse and accessories to the mansion.
“As usual, according to the variety store, I buy too much.”
“We found many things that we wanted so we ended up buying them.”
Takeo and Alice smile wryly.
“Master, Alice, did you make those clothes together?”
Mia said while staring at the two of them.
“Yes, Takeo-sama came up with the idea.
There is also a simple strengthening magic.”
“I want to wear one too!”
Alice was surprised and Takeo agreed.
“No, Mia is a fairy, right?
I’ve never heard of a fairy wearing clothes. “
There’s no fairy in the Kingdom of Azupal, isn’t it?
So how can you say that fairies not wearing clothes is normal?”
“There is no description of clothes in the book where the fairy appears.”
“Did the fairies wear clothes in Mia’s forest?”
“No, we don’t wear it. There’s no need for it.”
Alice had a proud face.
“But Mia wants to wear it, right?”
“Yes, I am Master’s subordinate.
I want to wear the same thing as Master.”
“Mia-chan, to that extent…”
“Sure thing. Let’s make as many as Mia likes, whether it’s one or two.”
Takeo said happily.
Alice smiled while nodding.[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
