85 - 084 Reunion

"I am your daughter's butler."

 The words came out of his mouth surprisingly naturally.

"What the hell is that guy⁉?

"I don't care! More magic ......"

"Wait ...... no way that ......."

 The countless magic spells were forcibly blocked, and the cloud of dust that had blocked my view of my surroundings began to clear.

"Hey ......, that's ......."

"The Monster Butler ......"

"It's over: ......"

 The three under Lord Kalm were bewildered by the Resistance, which lost its will to fight at once.

"What are you talking about? You are dealing with one person⁉"

 Indeed, all the people who were with the princess have already scattered and fled.

 But the only thing that comes back to those words is a myriad of stares, as if they were looking at something unbelievable.

"Yeah! We've come this far, and failure is not an option! Let's get the princess!"

"Hey! Don't do it!"

"Shut up! What's the use of having just one butler come out of the woodwork!"

 The Resistance is beginning to split up, but three magical dolls jump out to push them aside.

 I see. I can see why Lord Kalm was so confident when we meet them.

 They are several times stronger than the ones we saw in the hut.

 If used in a war, they would make an excellent stand-alone force.

 But .......

"I can't be a steward if I can't be defeated by a puppet."

 He runs in the opposite direction toward the three magic dolls. With the same momentum, he destroys all of them as he passes by.

 The dolls crumble with a clattering sound behind him. The princess is behind you. I have carefully destroyed them so that not even the slightest accident will happen.

"Nah... ......"

"Who the ...... hell ......... are you!"

I don't need you to remember.

 It reaps the consciousness of the three surgeons.

"Hic ...... run away oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!"

 The rest was easy.

 There was no need to go after them. Unless they are being manipulated by other countries, the "resistance" is necessary in many cases.

 Only two people remained in the large garden.

"You ...... why ......?"

"I wonder why ......"

 I wondered that myself.

 Every choice I'd made before coming here had been based on my feelings.

 I had arrived here of my own free will, more than I had ever thought possible when I was a servant of the princess.

"You idiot, ...... you're back so late."

"You're right. ...... sorry--"


 Interrupting my words, for some reason the princess is taking a deep breath.

 And then...

"I'm sorry, I know. ......"

 He turned his face away from me, and said, "I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry.

 Considering her past history, I was surprised at her unbelievable words.

 While I was frozen like this, her words continued to come out one after another.

"Now that Lilit is gone, I realize how big he was to me. ....... I realized that I couldn't do what I do without Lit, and ...... well, ......."

 A droplet spills from his face.

 Still, the Princess continued to speak.

"So ...... I'm sorry."

 The words, squeezed out so as not to be drowned out by the sound of her crying, reached my ears.

 My answer came out of those words: .......

"Shall I make you some tea?"

 I smile at the princess who looks at me with wide eyes.

 I don't know why, but it seemed like the right thing to do.

 She rubbed her face with her head down and said.

"Yes, please brew me something very tasty.

"Yes, sir."

 I had already confirmed once in the mansion that the princess had her favorite tea leaves.

 I went into the house and prepared for the tea ceremony, relieved to see the princess smiling at me with swollen eyes.
