And then, in the name of observation, I started living together with Knight Commander Moorwright for several days in this town while he was on vacation.
That time, after our conversation, the butler Belus came around and showed me to my room. But again, from the room it was easy to see their ill-intentions.
“My sincerest apologies, but because of the abruptness of this matter, we have yet to finish preparations for a guest room.”
The room was in extreme conditions.
With barely any sun entering, a gloomy atmosphere enveloped the room. It was a room no one would possibly offer to a human.
The bed was not only battered from overuse, but also didn’t have any bedding. The window was clouded up with dust, and on the rims and the bare support frames there were spider webs spread all over. Dust lay in a thick pile on the floor.
To be honest, did they actually track down the dirtiest unused room for me to use?
“Sorry for the trouble. However it’s only for a few days, so it’s fine to not go to extra lengths for me.”

“I see. That was awful of her, wasn’t it? Let me apologise on her behalf.”
This mansion was a vacation home, so originally this household had a residence in the capital where they lived.
This Belus was also from the residence in the capital, and seemed to have come here with the Moorwrights.
Among the rest of the people who came together with them, there were also other servants. Other than those, the servants were people who were originally in charge of managing this residence, so it seemed they hadn’t met my sister.
However, the people who’d lived together with my sister in the capital were different. Their merciless gazes full of loathing kept stabbing through my whole body.
Those gazes sure were nostalgic.
In the past, I had received those gazes often.
“How would you like to have your lunch?”
“I don’t need any meals.”
“….. Indeed. I suppose the same thing beasts eat can’t enter your mouth.”
“That’s not it. I’ve conveyed this to your lord as well, but I have a job to do. I must manage the medicinal herbs field, and I also want to show my face at the village at least once a day. If I go there, there’s a bunch of nagging old people who’ll always nag after me about this and that, taking care of me. Taking their fun away would be a bit pitiful.”
“Certainly, sir. If you have any needs, please call for me.”
Even though I’d put my words as simply as possible, the butler’s demeanor didn’t let up on me even a little bit, though it was still elegant.
They wouldn’t change their manner towards anything related to my sister, I guess.
I could easily understand Belus’s scorn, because I could effortlessly imagine the way my sister would snap at others with her ice-cold voice.
After looking around the cramped room, I arranged a place that I felt could store medicinal herbs, even if it was just for the time being.
When I was done with arranging everything, my own body was coated with dust.
Casting Clean on myself, I left the room.
I’d like to go back to my home now, but I wondered where Knight Commander Moorwright was.
……No wait, in the first place, that butler. He’d told me to call for him, but never told me how to call for him.
“What to do…”
Behind me, a dog beastman with somewhat frivolous, excessively sparkling eyes suddenly appeared.
This is the start of Arc 2.
While editing this chapter, I realised my Japanese has gotten better. My speed is still snail-like though. But now it’s because of uni workload o(TヘTo)
Next week’s two chapters will be sometime between Thursday and Sunday, instead of the usual days. Because I have coursework due in the middle of the week orz.
