A Girl Who Was Told "You Have No Talent" Turned Out To Be A Talented Monster - Chapter 24.1
Litty, befriending a Noble Young Lady
Maamu, the daughter of Count De Mile, lost her mother when she was very young, and while De Mile was busy with work, Maamu was taken care of by servants.
As the daughter of an aristocrat, she could not neglect her studies, so her opportunities for having fun were quite few. Maamu was Count’s beloved daughter, so he would never compromise with her safety.
Although he did not lose his wife in an unforeseen accident, De Mile was still extremely sensitive about everything.
So, when there was a shortage of guards, he decided to hire local adventurers.
“Maamu-sama, these crêpes here are very delicious! Oh, and these skewers are also great!” (Natasha)
“Do you eat them with your hands?” (Maamu)
“Yes, you don’t need knives and forks to eat street food.” (Natasha)
Maamu could not help but murmur to herself in a daze, “You are actually eating food directly with your hands…”
For Maamu, who grew up as a young lady, even this level of casualness was something new.
Litty, on the other hand, gobbled up the grilled skewers. Lately, she had been running around a lot to complete tasks to accumulate points for rank promotion, so eating and touring around like this felt great.
However, she also knew that she mustn’t relax her guard.
“But Father might not approve of this behavior…” (Maamu)
“I’ll keep it a secret, and you won’t tell him either, will you, Litty-chan?” (Natasha)
“You see, Maamu-chan’s caretakers are cautious about what she eats to ensure that her nutritional intake is well-balanced. That’s why it is very rare for her to eat this kind of food.” (Natasha)
“Do you like it, Maamu-san?” (Litty)
“Itsh sho tashty!” (Maamu)
She had grease around her mouth and spoke with her cheeks stuffed with skewers. Which also affected the way she spoke.
A picnic-like moment was just what she was looking for. Her father dearly cared for her, and she also respected him wholeheartedly.
However, she felt trapped, even though she never said it out loud. De Mile must have sensed this too, because he decided on this trip.
“Maamu’s father is very strict, isn’t he? Then I’ll keep my mouth zipped as well.” (Litty)
“Thank you, Litty-san.” (Maamu)
“It’s nothing. I can also relate to that…” (Litty)
Litty was also criticized by her parents for pretending to practice with a wooden stick. That’s why she could somewhat understand Maamu’s situation.
At least at times like this, one should be allowed to do what they want. Litty, who saw her own past in Maamu, respected her choice.
“How is Litty-san’s father?” (Maamu)
“Eh? Well, he is strict, but I love him.” (Litty)
“You’re just like me. I love my father too.” (Maamu)
“Count De Mile has an excellent reputation, and I think he is a good man. So much so that some people even believe that if he had had more ambitions, he could have reached another height in his career. Whatever he did was all for Maamu’s sake, but while doing so, he completely neglected her in the process.” (Natasha)
“…was that because of her mother?” (Litty)
Natasha, who had known Maamu for a while, sometimes unknowingly brought up topics that could cause some privacy issues. However, before she could reply to Litty, she hurriedly covered her own mouth to stop speaking.
Natasha said apologetically while ignoring Litty’s question, “I am sorry, Maamu-sama, if I have been disrespectful of your father’s feelings towards you.”
“Ah! You don’t have to worry about that. What he did was what any other noble would do!” (Maamu)
“How about I teach you magic in secret next time? Once again, please forgive me.” (Natasha)
“It’s fine. Don’t worry about it.” (Maamu)
Only then did Litty realize that Natasha, who also held the title of Magician, would definitely know a certain amount of magic.
How could Litty not be envious?
