This was the private room assigned to him in the mage garden box.
Alexis sat down on a chair at a table set for one, folded his arms, and waited for a while.
「Well, I knew this was going to happen...」
Yes, he knew this was going to happen. He had predicted this in advance.
After all, it was Sara against whom he was not going to get what he wanted.
Alexis gets up from his chair. There is no point in staying here forever.
It's going to be morning before he knows it. ...Although morning and night would not be recognizable in Avalon, there is a difference in brightness between morning and night, as if there is a pseudo-time in the mage garden box.
Even so, the light does not dim down to night's darkness but only to dusk's dimness. Even with the room light dimmed, the scenery is still dimly visible, and it is easy to recognize the other person's face.
Now, Alexis opened the door, went out into the hallway illuminated by the wall sconce, and started to wander.
He had just finished his shift as a guard, and Sara's guarding time should be over. Although there are no other restrictions, he cannot take the trouble to do so. There is the problem of sleeping time too.
（Should I have done it after returning from the dungeon? ...No, in her case, the longer I put it off, the more it will be forgotten...）
However, just when he thought it would be too much trouble to look for her, he found Sara.
Naturally, she was not far from Alexis' room.
She was looking out of the big open window facing the corridor at the garden in a daze.
When Alexis called out to her, "Hey Sara," she turned around without seeming to be upset.
「Oh, Alex-kun. Do you want to see it too? The moon is beautiful tonight.」
Sara smiles at him, and Alexis says, "...oh, no, it's not."
「...Oh, did you find out?」
Sara smiles mischievously.
「I told you to come to my room later, didn't I?」
「Oh, were you serious? I mean, you had done it in the bathroom. You're so eager.」
「Don't you know how eager I am for that?」
「Well, I don't know.」
Sara smiles at him.
As usual, she is always trying to make people feel uncomfortable.
「Well, you haven't done it lately, have you?」
Alexis grabs Sara's hand.
「But, I'm not your slave like the other girls, okay?」
Sara says with a smirk.
Alexis loosens his grip on her hand.
That's true if he thinks about it. Lately, he had felt that basically, any woman in his vicinity could be his partner.
If that's the case, why doesn't she refuse to go to the same bathroom with him? She doesn't even try to shake his arm, and he doesn't feel much rejection from Sara...
「You hate it?」
Alexis asks, and Sara gives a small laugh as if she is about to blow up.
「What? Do you want to do it with me so badly?」
When she asks him that, Alexis is very reluctant to answer.
He tries to say no, but then he thinks, "No, wait a minute...".
It's true that nowadays it's easy to get laid with anyone. But that's only the case these days. For most of his life, if he had the chance to be asked, was he the kind of guy who, given a chance, would say no? Of course not.
「I wanna do it.」
When he said it clearly, Sara looked shocked.
「Eh... Uh, well...」
She looked upset for a moment, probably because she didn't expect to be told so clearly.
Well, Sara has a habit of controlling others and gloating about it. The way Alexis turned back to her must have upset her more than she could see.
「Hmm... I-I see.」
Sara immediately smiled and nodded, but it was too late.
「—So? You're not going to play with me?」
Alexis smiles and asks.
「 Is my penis no longer of interest to you as a research material?」
「...No, not at all, you know? But...」
Sara's lips are closed, vaguely.
Her reluctance to answer may be due to what she had said earlier.
—I-I'm not good at having sex with you, to tell you the truth...
This statement is probably the reason why she did not come to Alexis' room frankly and why she is still reluctant to answer.
「Hmm... Uh, still, let's not do this, shall we?」
Sara said softly, but Alexis shook his head.
If this is the case, he'd like to push her hard. Should I push her hard? Alexis thought.
「Is that okay? Or what? Have you got someone you want to protect?」
「...You know, Alex-kun. I'm not that kind of girl.」
Sara chuckled in an unintentional tone.
Then she seemed to think about it again for a while.
「Well, I don't have a choice. If you insist... But I'm not really up for it, you know? That's true, okay?」
「Well, I don't know about that.」
Alexis grinned back.
This was payback for her earlier attempt to smirk at Alexis.
Sara looked somewhat dissatisfied.
「...it seems that you're really interested in my 'childish' body, huh? If you insist, I'll play along with you, Lolicon-kun, but only if you behave yourself, okay? Do you understand?」
She puts her little chest out as if she were talking to a child and points her little hand at Alexis' face, extending her index finger.
To say that Alexis doesn't complain about her older attitude would be a lie.
However, he smiles back and says, "Okay," for the time being.
