“Chapter 212: With Meirir 2”

I take back what I said about Dyke being a good guy.

 

– Uhh…………

 

– …

 

Even if the vapor was hiding a lot of her skin, I could easily make out her body.

 

Speaking of which, this is the first time I’ve seen her naked.

 

Might not be the time to be thinking about that.

 

– Ta-ta-ta-ta-ta-ta-ta-ta-ta-

 

– I’M SO SORRY.

 

Both of us are so flustered that neither knows what to do. We just turned our faces away.

 

– W-Why are you here!? I reserved this bath…

 

– What? I thought it was reserved for me.

 

– …

– “Come to the Bright Bath by yourself. I want to thank you” (Takaya/Meirir)

 

– Did you hear about his parents too? (Takaya)

 

– Yes. He convinced Roar and me to lend him money.

 

– That little…

 

So Roar, Meirir and I are paying for Dyke’s part…

 

– I’ll get out of the bath. Feel free to enjoy your reservat-

 

I was about to get up when Meirir grabbed my wrist.

 

– Uhh…?

 

– It’s fine. I’m submerged from below my shoulders. You can’t see anything anymore. Can we stay together a little longer?

 

– …

 

– What? Are you embarrassed about taking a bath with your old sis?

 

Yes. I have never been more embarrassed in my life.

But I can’t possibly back out now.

 

– O-Of course not! I’ll stay here longer than you.

 

– Oh, really now? It’s a competition, then~

 

We just sat on the bath close to each other, looking at the sky.

 

Not a single cloud. All the stars in the sky are tinkling…

 

Yet they’re not the constellations I know.

 

I really am in another world…

 

– Takaya…

 

– Hm? What? You wanna quit already? I’m just getting started.

 

– Ah, you’re so dense. No, it’s not that.

 

After a short pause, Meirir looked straight into my eyes.

 

– …Do you want to see my birthmark?

– !!??

 

“Her birthmark is in a bit of a dangerous place”

 

– W-What are you blushing for!?

 

– Well…

 

– It stands out a lot, so I always try to hide it.

 

Meirir raised her ponytail and exposed the nape of her neck.

 

It’s small, but compared to her siblings’, Meirir’s birthmark is bright red.

 

– Is this why you wanted to come with us to Wols?

 

– So, you knew…

 

I might’ve been staring at Lyld and Myirin’s marks for way too long.

 

– I know I’ve been cast under a shadow with so many girls in your life recently… But I’m still one of your friends.

 

The distance between us disappeared to the point where our shoulders were now touching.

– Takaya, do you know why we have this birthmark?

 

– …No.

 

It’s exactly because I don’t know that I’ve been so fixated on it.

 

– Is it fine to tell an outsider?

 

– Weellll~~ I probably shouldn’t, but if it’s you…

 

Meirir readied herself.

 

I’ll get to find out abou- Huh?

 

A circle of white light appeared in front of us.

 

– Is this…? (Meirir)

 

– Yeah, it’s her.

 

The magic circle, the light… There’s no way to mistake her.

 

– Look at who we have here! If it isn’t my disciple Takaya! And he’s alone with a girl in a hot spring!? Boy, I’m glad to see you’re having a good time.

 

– Grandmaster.
