When I turned around, what I saw was an out-of-breath Millia.
What, it’s Millia?
I was worried because a red dot was quickly on its way toward me, but it turned out to be just her…though something felt off about her.
“Haa…haa…Luke-sama…care to come for a walk with me…?”
“Fufufu…it’s alright…there’s, there’s nothing to be afraid of…”
Nope, no matter how I look at it, you’re being scary right now.
Scared by the ominous smile on Millia’s face, I unconsciously took a step back.
Because she has been devoted since her time serving as a maid, I had faith that she wouldn’t harm me. That said, all my instincts at this moment were sounding an alarm.
“What seems to be the matter…? Come on, let’s go for a walk…”
I knew it! She is acting strange!
In the first place, it was strange that the dot that represented her in my map was not only red, it also said [Pervert].
Is it possible that the person before me is someone else, only pretending to be her?
When I realized that possibility, I quickly used Villager Appraisal.
Age: 23 years old
Village Bond Level: Ultra-high
Suitable Occupation: Priest
…nope, it is her. But then, why is she acting like this?
The base version of Villager Appraisal couldn’t tell me about it, so I thought maybe Villager Appraisal 2 could. However, by using that, I might see other things that I didn’t want to see…
“Maid Breathing First Form! [Did you call for me, Master?]!”
She was able to shorten the distance between us in an instant!
Since when can Millia move this fast!?
“Let me explain. Maid Breathing First Form: [Did you call for me, Master?] is a breathing technique unique to maids that allows us to move several times faster than normal so that we can quickly come to our masters’ side!”
She explained!? No, wait, more importantly, a breathing technique unique to maids!?
“Maid Breathing Second Form! [I’ll carry you, Master!]”
She lifted me up!? I didn’t know Millia had this much strength…!
“Let me explain. Maid Breathing Second Form: [I’ll carry you, Master!] is a breathing technique unique to maids that allows us to have more strength several times than normal so that we can easily carry our masters!”
Thanks for the explanation, but I still don’t understand what you’re saying!
“Don’t worry, Luke-sama. It’ll all be better soon…gufufufu…”
While carrying me like that, Millia brought me somewhere else.
Th-this is bad! Somebody, help…ahh! There are two ladies there!
“Help! Millia’s abducting me!”
“Oh my, they get along so well.”
“Ufufu, how I envy them.”
“It’s not like that! I’m seriously being abducted here! She’s taking me somewhere dangerous!!! Help!”
“Oh my, I wish a handsome prince will carry me away to someplace dangerous as well.”
“Ufufu, how lovely.”
…these two aren’t of any help.
“Thanks for your hard work today, village chief!”
“You’re going on a date with Millia-sama today? I’m so jealous!”
Next, we passed by two men.
In what way can being carried away by Millia look like a date to them though? Ahh, more importantly…
“H-help! Millia’s forcibly taking me somewhere!”
“Forcibly, you say…*gulp*”
“He’s so young, but he’s already doing those kinds of play…you’re so amazing, village chief…”
“It’s not like that! I’m seriously asking for help here!”
“Ahhh, I too want an older woman teach me stuff.”
“At our age though, that’s no longer possible.”
Yeah, these two aren’t of any help either!
And so, Millia continued carrying me like that. After a while we reached the underground restaurant district that I built recently. However, the whole district was just to misdirect the attention from a hotel of a certain kind.
Not long afterward, Millia stopped after reaching the entrance of that hotel.
She finally put me down, but she quickly and firmly grabbed hold of my hand to prevent me from escaping.
“Haahaa, haa…now, Luke-sama, let us enter together…!”
“W-wait a minute, Millia! This hotel’s––”
“Let’s bravely ascend the stairway to adulthood…!”
Millia interrupted me like that before I could finish my own words.
However, in the next moment, an employee stood in her way.
“My apologies, but individuals under 16 years of age are not allowed within.”
Like that, Millia collapsed into the ground.
