246 Girl, Minister and Magic Swordsman 5

 I, Kayu, and Shinomi are peeping at each other with excitement.
 Why, of course, it's to watch over Ms. Sheehan, who is all dressed up. The child gryphons, Ruma and Rumiha, are also watching over her.
 I guess girls are interested in love. They seem to be holding back their cries so that Sheehan and the others won't notice. Cute.

 Sheehan is not used to wearing a skirt, and looks uncomfortable. It's a small village, so if someone does something differently, it's bound to attract attention.
 People are gathering around, including the spirits. Everyone is looking at you, and it's natural for Sheehan to be embarrassed. I'd be a little surprised too if I got this much attention.

 Illume can see spirits, so she might be surprised to see so many spirits gathered here.
 Kayu and Shinomi are talking about Sheehan, saying that she's cute and that girls in love are cute. Indeed, Sheehan is cute as she waits for Mr. Ilum to come.
 I wonder if she becomes cute like this when she meets someone she loves. I wonder if one day I will feel that way too. But for now, I'm more interested in the cute little gryphons peeping at me than in love. I wonder if I'm still a child when I think that way.


 Mr. Illume has arrived. I'm sure you'll be able to find something that works for you. I'm sure you'll be happy to hear that.

"Well, Illume...
"Yes. Mr. Sheehan. I'm sure you're not the only one. And why are you dressed like that? ......
I can't see them. I can't see them. ....... I don't see them, so I'm going to have to ask you, does this look good on me?
Uh, yes. Yes, it does. I think it looks good on you. You look different than usual.
I see.

 I can hear Mr. Sheehan talking to Mr. Ilum.

"Not you, Mr. Ilum. That's not very polite. It's okay to say it looks good on you, but a girl should get a pretty compliment if she's done it right. I can't see the spirits, but even if I can, I can't focus on them and not compliment them.
"Kayu, be quiet. You can hear me. You can't blame him for thinking about Lerunda and the spirits first.
I wonder what's going to happen ......
"I don't know.

 Sneaking around talking and peeking. There are people sneaking a peek besides us. Yes, if Mr. Sheehan is dressed differently than usual, he will stand out.

"What's going on, spirits?
"What's going on, spirits?" "Sheehan-san is talking about me?

 "What's going on, spirits?" "What, Sheehan-san is thinking about me?" Some of the spirits are easily revealing Sheehan-san's feelings to Ilum. Maybe the spirits don't understand about people's feelings like that.

I don't know. I don't know. I like you. I like you. In a male/female way. I like you.

 I'm not sure if it's because I've been exposed by the ...... genie, but Mr. Sheehan shouted out as if in desperation. I'm not sure what to make of that.
 Kayu was almost screaming. Shinomi is covering her mouth in panic.

 I also wondered what Mr. Illume would say. I didn't expect her to suddenly confess her feelings for me, since my plan was to dress her up in a cute outfit and make her conscious.

"Me? I'm a servant of the gods and Lord Lerunda, so I'm not thinking of doing anything like that.
"Wait a minute, Mr. Ilum! I don't think so. A girl is trying her best to confess her feelings to you, you should think more! Do you like her or not? Do you think you can go out with her or not?

 Oh ...... I noticed Kayu popping up.
 As a person who is also in love, he was not satisfied with Illume's answer. But you're right. I don't know anything about love, but since you say you like her, I'm sure she should answer you properly.

"Miss Kayu? What is it? I've decided to devote myself to you, Lerunda. Everything I am is for the gods. It is not right for a servant of God to go out with...
"Lelunda! Lelunda, you don't have a problem with Ilum going out with someone, do you?

Uh, yeah. I'm not at all. Even if you're a servant of God, you're free to go out with anyone you want.

 I replied, startled by Kayu's sudden shout. When Illume saw me, she rushed to worship me, but I stopped her. You'll be able to find a lot more than just a few things to do.

"You know, Mr. Illume. I don't want you to worry about serving God or giving yourself to me, I want you to think it all out of your head.

 Yeah, that's all I can say. I think you should put aside those feelings of serving gods and godchildren for the time being, think about it properly, and come up with an answer.

...... I understand. If that's what you want, Lerunda-sama, you can go to ....... Mr. Sheehan.
Oh, yeah.
I've never really thought about it before, so I'll think about it.

 I've never thought about it before, so I'll think about it.
 I don't know what's going to happen to them from now on, but I guess it's okay to say they've made progress. I'm going to keep an eye on them from now on.

 It may not change immediately, but I hope that their relationship will change to something that makes sense to both of them.
