Black, black, black…
I look around at the boots, but they’re all red.
If I had to say it, the sole would be brown, almost black, but it’s probably not.
It even intentionally separated them by color, and that also seems to have some meaning…
“What are you doing?”
‘Where is black,’ I looked around, but I couldn’t see anything strange.
“Un. There’s red, so I’m wondering where the black is.”
It seems that was enough for her to understand, Seliana stood up from the sofa and approached me.
I wonder if there’s something you can tell from a distance. when you’re not the one wearing it?
As soon as she came right in front of me, she grabbed the hem of my clothes and pulled it straight up, and tapped my leg.
Why does this big sister have no hesitation when she rolls up people’s clothes…?
“Aren’t you wearing it?”
When I followed her line of sight, it was facing my right leg.
I am, wearing boots…
I didn’t notice because the skirt reaches below my knees, but before I knew it, I was wearing black tights on my right leg that went up to my mid-thigh.
So that’s it!
When I was bending my body forward and peering into my leg, Seliana, who was touching the tights, pinched me.
“Interesting, that. It’s fused with your skin.”
When I tried to touch it, I felt a cool touch.
Probably feels more like enamel than rubber?
And there is no border with tights.
It does not move even when scratched or pulled, and the stimulation is transmitted directly to the skin.
The [Shadow Sword]’s black nail is just above the nail, but one’s different.
…I can take it off, right?
“Can that return to normal?”
When I was a little worried, she said something that made me even more scared…
If I take off my [Shadow Sword], it returns to normal, so it must also be the case for this.
It should return to normal when I take off the boot.
Despite the elaborate design of the boot, it has no straps or belts…
I tried pulling it as hard as I could to take off the longboot.
“Ah! I took it off!”
[Scarlet Bee’s Needle] had returned from the boot into a metal state.
What is it? The thing you put on your ankle.
It looks a little rough, but if I think about it that way, it isn’t bad?
“Leaving aside how to use it for later… what should we do? Sera. Is there anyone you want to step on?”
What is she asking?
“It’s a little politically problematic for me and Elena to have…”
Not only Seliana, Elena is also a noble.
If this is the same as the Medalia Church’s [Longboots of Judgment], it seems that there will be various problems for the two of them to have it.
“…what about Alex?”
“No. Do you want to see it?”
“No… not really.”
Is it something like that?
“Ojii-sama, do you have a suggestion?”
“Hmm. Firstly, it’s impossible to let go of it. It’s impossible for you to use it in your current position, but it will be a definitive power to have that when you return to the territory.”
Even if the Müller Earl Household has insufficient family status, if everything goes smoothly, she’ll be marrying a prince, so maybe it’s okay?
“If you follow the Fable of the Scarlet Bee, it would be better to let Sera have it. Apart from whether or not to use it, if you have some opportunity, let her use in public.”
“What is the Fable of the Scarlet Bee?”
“The scarlet bee that stung the Demon King. It should be among the books you have… haven’t you read it?”
After all, I’ve been reading Seliana’s collection of stories all the time on our way here~…
“…is that so? It’s known all over the continent. It’s in the church’s collection of sermons. They want to cite the demon king as the rulers and the scarlet bee as the church, and make it seem as if they are the ones who correct those in power. If the [Longboots of Judgment] and the [Scarlet Bee’s Needle], they must have come up with it in that connection.
Huh… I wonder if [Scarlet Bee’s Needle] is such an important thing…
After all, it’s treated as a national treasure or holy treasure…
Am I gonna carry that around with me?
Won’t I get killed?
