「Fuwaa… ah, excuse me」
I involuntarily yawned… ugh, the drowsiness started attacking me. Various things happened, but when I think about it, it’s currently in the middle of the night. Staying this late might have been possible in my past life, but I’m currently in a child’s body so this is the limit of my stamina. I also kept using magic.
Uu… do I have to transfer back to the mansion…
「Ahh, sorry to keep you this late for a talk. Tora, send her off」
「Ah, no… I will return by myself」
When Sei commanded Byakko-sama, I declined in a hurry.
「Don’t be unreasonable. You have spent too much magical power, didn’t you? … Anyhow, it’s just Tora. I’m sure he won’t do anything absurd to Cristea-dono. Right, Tora?」
「I, I wouldn’t do something like that! This is a deal after all!」
Byakko-sama said hastily.
「Ah… crap. I, I will send Missy back first!」
As if trying to deflect Sei’s questioning gaze, Byakko-sama lifted me in a hurry and warped.
「Tora, I will ask you in detail when you return, alright?」
I heard Sei’s words just on the brink of the warp.
We warped to my bedroom when I blinked.
「Ohh… it’s my room」
As expected of Byakko-sama, he doesn’t feel uncomfortable after warping. Hmm, practice is necessary, this is…
After lowering me from his arms, Byakko-sama turned into a tiger cub and exhaustedly crumbled on the floor.
「… I don’t want to return」
Is he sulking? Ah well… he will surely be lectured when he returns. Of course, he wouldn’t want to return…
I pat the head and back of the tiger cub Byakko-sama. Even though I know that it’s Byakko-sama… rather, a Sacred Beast, it’s impossible to resist this fluffiness.
「There, there, if you don’t return, you will incur even more pointless anger, you know?」
Besides, if you promptly don’t return, I won’t be able to sleep. In fact, I’m quite sleepy already… sleeping while buried in mofumofu is attractive, but because it’s Byakko-sama… knowing that fact… un, not possible.
「That’s so, isn’t it…」
Haa… he sluggishly got up while breathing out a large sigh.
「Can’t be helped… I will return… ah! Give me something to eat before I return!」
「This time’s compensation!」
Saying such, Byakko-sama extended his forepaws.
He didn’t forget? How troublesome…
「Say, Byakko-sama? Since I treated you previous times… how about ending it here…?」
Byakko-sama stared at me with teary eyes when I said that…
「You… you really aren’t a human but a demon, aren’t you…」
No, no, how rude… I just made a suggestion.
Although I say that, he would be pitiful since he wouldn’t make any profit from this, so I retrieved onigiri and dorayaki I made a few days ago from the inventory and handed it over.
I hope this would decrease Sei’s lecturing at least a bit, but…
「Eh!? You are giving those guys too?」
My share has… Byakko-sama murmured.
Yeah, I take what I said back. It’s fine if Sei wrings you out, alright?
