The Princess's Doll Shop - Chapter 16
As soon as he went back to his seat, he pulled at his hair and started grumbling to himself.
“Wow, that crazyー That difference in temperature just gave me goosebumps. How did I not realize until now? No, I guess I knew for sure. I’m not blind, so how would I not know? I was only avoiding it because it was absolutely unacceptable!”
Dear Spírĭtus. Dear Legendary Dragon. Is this your true intention!?
Wearing an unpleasant expression, Gary plopped down, not caring about the dust on the attic floor.
“Ugh, I should’ve gone out to catch the ‘rat’ like the others. I mistakenly thought this would be an easy job, so I volunteered to go here, and now, I have to see something unbelievable instead.
“…What are you talking about?”
Harper’s reaction was delayed. Gary’s forehead wrinkled.
“There you are, you blind person.”
“My eyesight is good though.”
“Sure… Of course, it is.”
Gary patted his junior’s head, who was like an animal living more by instinct than common sense, but then his tone suddenly changed to a stern one.
“In any case kid, pay more attention. If you slip even once and make a small mistake, you’ll get executed. Understood?”
Harper blinked her crimson eyes. Although she didn’t know what was going on, she felt the urgency in the air around Gary.
Uh… So what her senior is saying is that our lives are in the hands of that beautiful and pitiful girl.
Harper, who always realized a second too late, glanced at Kathia and tilted her head.
Was it because of the afterimage from last night?
Even if their lives weren’t on the line, she had a hunch it would be tough to peel her eyes off of Kathia.

For Kathia, it’s time to start a new day.
The reason why she woke up at that time was simple. Click, the reason was the window adjacent to her bed that opened like a morning call.
“…I’ll open the door, so can’t you just ring the bell?”
With eyelids half-open, Kathia croaked and Jean answered her while sitting on the windowsill.
“It’s more comfortable this way since I got used to it.”
Why is it more comfortable to go through the window, just why?
In any case, he had such useless habits. Kathia grunted with an expression of disbelief as she got up from her bed.
“Then at least come a bit later. Is there a reason why you must barge in so early?”
“The reporting time for the Knighthood is 7:30 AM. Once I see my subordinates, go about, and run here, it’s exactly 7:50 AM.”
“Why do you even bother showing yourself? You’re going to ditch work anyway.”
“I have to get my dues.”
Why this tax-robbing civil servant…!
Jean, not even paying attention to how Kathia was glaring at him, slipped out to the second-floor living room and proceeded to plop down onto the yellow sofa, as if he was a real thug.
What a waste of my breath. Kathia sighed and walked over to the bathroom.
In front of a large bowl-shaped sink, she twisted the faucet handle and with no special setup, warm water spurted out.
‘Thanks to the magicians who set up the waterways. It’s amazing every time I see it.’
Wait, but then again, is the Arcane Tower operating smoothly these days? The Master of the Arcane Tower had suddenly changed, so it must’ve been chaotic…
Kathia kept splashing water on her face and wondered. But with no apparent setbacks, it seemed to be going well.
“Yes, it must be peaceful now.”
After mumbling, Kathia wiped her face with a dry washcloth and she opened her cherry red lips. She must’ve forgotten.
There was still a remarkable event remaining.
The acceptance of a new face at the Arcane Tower.
But he’s going to show up one year later…
No, that may not be the case. A lot of things have changed and for him to enter the world a little bit earlier wouldn’t be strange.
“Deon would like that.”
Kathia grinned while heading to the dressing room.
Among the evenly-spaced out dresses hung up, she picked out and changed into a simple dress before running out of her house in only slippers.
It was about 8 AM.
This was around the time the next-door neighbor would come out to water the flowers.
“Good morning, Madam Murphy.”
“I do not know who you are, but a good morning, it is. You somewhat resemble a lady I have served.”
