umidity and the discomfort are strong.
The temperature is quite moderate during the day, but the nights are quite cols.
And yet, because they keep this activity secret, they couldn’t even use the fire.

「If we use fire, they can see it across the mountain.」

「Besides, the fiends here are not afraid of fire.
In fact, they may even come closer.」

That was Miranda and Nia’s decision.
But to Fenna, it seems like a garden, and she said that if there’s danger, the forest will tell her.
It is kind of earth magic, she said.
And then there’s Lisa, the sensor.
Nia also has night vision, and even if she can’t use the fire, she doesn’t thave to worry about security.
However, not being able to use the fire to prepare meals is a pain.
They have to eat mainly dried meat and bread, which can preserve, and if they continue to do so for a long time, they are likely to lack nutrition.

「Guys, prepare to get your bunks ready」

「Eh, isn’t the sun just about to set?」

「No, the forest is so deeo that soon we won’t be able to see anything.
It is better to have a place to sleep now and take a longer rest.
Besides, considering that fiends are more active at night, I don’t know if we can really rest even in our bunks.」

「I agree with Nia.」

Miranda nods.
And it was dark in less than half an hour as Fenna searched for a suitable spot near a watering hole and cut trees and weeds to secure enough room to pitch the tent.
Thanks to this, they had to eat their dinner by hand.

「Fenna, how far are we from our destination?」

「We’re about two days out.」

「We are closer than we thought.
I thought the elven village be deeper in the forest.」

The moonlight was shining, albeit slightly.
In the midst of it, Nia makes a surprising face.

「The center of the forest is a den of magical beasts.
Their family are migrants, so they would not be so bold as take up a position in the center.」


「Yes, they moved here from the south only about 500 years ago.
I have not been told why they moved here.」

「If it’s been 500 years or so, how many elves are still alive that time?」

「No, only the High Elves or Ancient Elves have such a long lifespan.
Te lifespan of us Seekers is not much different from that of humans, 150 years at most.
We may look younger for longer than humans, as we come of age at around 20, but our appearance remains unchanged until we are about 100 years old.」

「…I envy you very much for that.」

Lisa began to ponder something.
Alfiris thought that she was a person who had nothing to do with jealousy or envy.
Lisa mumbled to herself, oblivious to Alfiris’ gaze.

「(After all, boys should be young in appearance, right? Well, Lisa will probably reach her best age in terms of appearance in about 10 years… but it is possible that Jake is a lolicon.
If he sees a grown-up Lisa and calls her『old』and『granny』 which as expected, Lisa won’t be able to get over it either.)」


「But I don’t want to be as tall as Alfie… although I do want those breast and buttocks.」

「Hey, Lisa?」

「No, but what if he prefers a body shape like Miliazar’s… Ah! If so, was it a mistake to leave with Miliazar!? He’s being taught some sleazy things at night now… haha, Lisa doesn’t think that Jake is the only one… what if he’s unexpectedly into that kind of thing…?」

「Lisa, listen to me!」

Alfiris shook Lisa, who had started to groan and hold her head somewhat alone.

「Don’t interrupt me, Alfie? Now seriously,『are small breasts in demand?』I am thinking about this.
Yes, I’m sure that’s none of your business anyway!」

「?? I have no clue of what you’re saying?」

For some reason, even Nia started to worry a bit about her figure.
Fenna, on the other hand, had a little head tilt, wondering if it was a problem she wouldn’t have to worry about if she had such a great style.
It could be that she is just naive.

Fenna has long straight silver hair and silver eyes.
Elves are generally said to be tall, but Fenna is not so.
She’s is almost as tall as Miranda.
Her head looks even smaller, and her waist and other parts of her body are very thin, but she has a perfect figure.
This is what they call,「inhumanly human.」

Nia was short in stature, but she herself said was still about 15 in human terms.
As she recall, she told that beastmen have a slow growth period, and many of them changer their physique from that age.
She still gives the impression of being a bit timid and young, but she could be described as quite cute if she were to develop a calm and relaxed atmosphere.
Her tone of voice is strong, like someome from military, but her gestures are quite cute.
Whenever she does something, her tail twitches and moves impatiently.

Incidentally, Nia has fur and eyes that are somewhere between blue and gray.
And her fur is very pleasant to the touch.
Her fur is very soft and is truly「cat fur.」She gets angry when one touch her head, but she is embarrassed when one touch her neck.
「Stop it!」that turns into「S-stop…」when her voice changes.
It’s an easy personality to understand.
It is no wonder that Lisa teases Nia every night before she goes to bed.

Which brings back the topic, Miranda, who is usually at the center of the conversation, is not involved with anything.

「Miranda, what are you doing?」

「Nhn—? I’m making explosives.」

「Hey! Do it somewhere away from the danger, you know?」

Alfiris involuntarily takes a step back.
Miranda giggles when sees Alfiris like that.

「It’s all right.
I don’t mix gunpowder, I just add effects to bombs and make special bullets.
Hey, Fenna! Is this Chiko leaf?」

「No, those are Musca leaves.
The Chiko leaves are…」

「Ah, I see.
Then I’ll put it like this… how about this?」

「Okay, I think it’s well done, Miranda-san.」

「I have confidence in my ability to mix medicines and such.
But Fenna, I told you to call me by my proper name, didn’t I?」

「I-I’m sorry… umm, Mi-Miran…da?」

「Your voice is too small! One more time!」

「I’m sorry!!」

「Almost there!!」

The group have no idea that Fenna was royalty or anything like that.
She seems strangely accustomed to apologizing.
Was there such a thing as a princess who is accustomed to apologizing?

「But why are you making bombs?」

「Because I’m not a good enough myself.
I make up for it with this.」

「But again.
Miranda is just strong enough.」

This Alfiris’ honest opinion, but Miranda fixed her with a hard stare.

Are you serious about that line?」

I’m not lying.」

「…As expected, you’re still naive as ever…」

Miranda sighed deeply.
