Chapter 16 - Part 2


 Fatima looks around her own outfit, seemingly unaware of what she is wearing.
 
Why are you dressed like a maid?
 
Eh? Alex, what are you talking about? This is my job
 
 Fatima tells him with an obvious look on her face.
 But Alexis freezes.
 Alexis' reaction makes Fatima realize...
 
...What? Didn't I tell you that?
 
No, you didn't!
 
Alexis responded without thinking.
 
**a
Oh, I see... I used to be a maid for Her Highness. Before I came to this fortress, I often served as her personal attendant. I really wanted to follow in her footsteps and learn swordsmanship, but I had no talent for it... It's a shame, even though I come from an aristocratic family of knights, [Cavalero]. I guess all my talents have been taken by my big brothers and little sisters. And so I became a conjurer, a role that can be fulfilled only with magic. Because anyone with the rank of priest can use magic
 
 Fatima smiles softly at him after she speaks and Alexis could only reply half-heartedly, "I see".
 
 But still, a maid. That Fatima to be a maid.
 Fatima, who usually looks cool and rarely smiles, is a maid.
 
I see...
 
 While Alexis is looking distant, Fatima says, "Oh, by the way," and starts to talk.
 
Are you tired and fell asleep last night? If so, you should soak yourself in the bathtub to get rid of the tiredness. Why don't you go there now? It feels good in the bathroom in the morning. I also like to take a bath in the morning, and Sara and I often take a bath together first thing in the morning
 
 Very thoughtful and considerate.
 But why didn't she just say it straight? Just complain that Alexis was stinky.
 
 Still, Alexis has a reason not to bathe at this time.
 
Well, yeah. I appreciate the concern, but there's a circumstance...
 
Circumstances?
 
Y-yeah. I'll go in before I go to bed, so give me a break for the rest of the day...
 
 Fatima looks doubtful when Alexis speaks inarticulately.
 
But that's a bit of nui— Ah, nothing. Well, I think morning is better. Are you different?
 
 "She just called me a nuisance, right? I'm pretty sure she did"

 "She just called me a nuisance. I'm pretty sure she did".
 Alexis puts on a smile, albeit an awkward one while he thinks this.
 
Anyway, just leave me alone. I'll be in my room today, so don't worry about me, okay!?
 
 Alexis then runs away.
 
Well...
 
 Fatima folded her arms and tilted her head.
 
Is it possible that Alex doesn't like to take a bath? That's not good. I should tell her highness and ask her to do something about it
 
 Fatima had made up her mind.
 After all, Fransisca is the second highest ranking person in the fort, and she is the only one who can give her opinion to Alexis.

 After hearing from Fatima, Fransisca visited Alexis in his room.
 She knocked and said, "Alexis-sama, I'm coming in," to which Alexis replied, "Yes".
 So Fransisca entered the room.
 
 "Have you bathed yet?" was Fransisca's first words.
 
 "Here we go again," Alexis thought, disgusted.
 
Yes, well...
 
...Hmm, it's bad for you if you don't go in there. Besides, we don't know what kind of air we are exposed to in Avalon...
 
Yeah, I know what you mean. You want to say that I stink, don't you? Just say it directly. Right, right!?
 
 Alexis presses her, and Fransisca's expression turns grim, "I-I didn't go that far". And looking at her, Alexis lets out a sigh.
 
*Sigh* I want to go in there, but...
 
 There is a deformity between his legs.
 Alexis decided to tell Fransisca the truth. With a hint of sadness.
 
I can't take a bath when other people are around. The deformity between my legs has made it so...
 
Eh? A-Alexis-sama's thing...?!
 
 Fransisca's cheeks were bright red.
 And when she thought of the thing between Aleixs legs, she couldn't help but wriggle her legs.
 Today, too, the tingling has not left her.
 
......
 
 Fransisca was silent for a while and seemed to be thinking about something, but then.
 
Uh... um... Then, would you like to go into the women's bath? Probably, no one will be there now...
 
 Fransisca is ashamed to admit it.
 Alexis, on the other hand, was astonished.
 
No, I'm just a pervert if someone comes over, aren't I?
 
Really? But if I tell them in advance that Alexis-sama can use the bathroom, they might not oppose it...
 
 Fransisca tilted her head, but soon came up with an idea.
 
...Then, shall I join you?
 
 Fransisca's cheeks turned bright red at the suggestion, and Alexis said.
 
Okay
 
 He said immediately.
