When I followed Elena to Seliana’s room, Alex was also there.
Even though he is a bodyguard, he tries not to enter too much he is a man. How unusual.
“It was just right. Here, Alex.”
I won’t forget it, but I should give it to him first.
“Oh… that was a big help.”
My errand is complete.
“So, what did you pick up? It doesn’t seem to be hostile, but… it’s a monster, right?”
That’s a tough question.
“…maybe it’s a monster, but I don’t know what it is.”
I tried to roll up my sleeves to show it, but… it wasn’t there.
I rolled up my other arm, but… it’s not there too.
“Get off the [Floating Orb] and turn around.”
“Where is it,” I looked all over my body. It was that time that I was told that.
Is it on my back?
“Well, whatever,” I thought and got off my [Floating Orb] and turned my back.
Seliana rolled up my skirt and even the shirt underneath to expose my back.
There’s no helping it~…I’m wearing a one-piece dress right now…
“Oh, there it is. What is this? Do you two know?”
Ignoring my protest, the three of them are looking at my back.
This is making me feel shy…
“Alex, this is…”
“Yeah, it’s a burrowing snake… Sera, order it to move to your hand.”
Is burrowing snake’s what this guy’s called? Well, I’ll try it.
“Come to my hand, come to my hand, come to my hand, come… oh?”
I didn’t feel like it was moving on my body at all, but it appeared on my palm as it ran along my left arm.
It is about 20 centimeters long, but it is showing the form of a snake when it’s out of my hand.
He has red eyes and is rather adorable.
Unlike the part that wraps around me, this one is just as thick as a rope.
The same as when I found it.
“It’s a snake… how strange.”
She looks at the snake that appeared on my palm in wonder.
This Ojou-sama seems to be fine with snakes.
It’s interesting because it listens to what I say when I’m giving simple instructions.
Isn’t it rather clever?
“So where did you pick it up?”
Come to think of it, is that building a warehouse?
Then there must be someone who owns it…
It’s not some noble, is it?
When I explained the circumstances, Alex and Elena were lost in thought.
They look a little solemn. Is there something strange about it?
Even Seliana is no different…
“There shouldn’t be any problems with the burrowing snake itself. It listens to what Sera says, and according to how she picked it up, so should’ve tamed it. When she goes to the order of knights headquarters later, she’ll also probably get permission.”
Elena began to explain something that made me curious.
It seems that burrowing snakes live by immersing themselves in the mana of living things and they are taking in the surrounding magic essences in that state.
When I picked it up, it must have been so weak that it couldn’t take in magic essences.
And the reason I was able to tame it was because [Shadow Sword] and burrowing snakes had good compatibility.
Normally, after catching them, you need to feed them, and in the end, you seem to have to make a contract using magic devices or something, but it seems that on rare occasions, monsters will approach you if you have gacha-made items.
That’s exactly how it is this time.
When it was drying up, it found someone with similar powers to it and called her out.
That must have been the strange feeling I had.
…so I was quite lucky huh~.
Seliana urges her to continue.
Certainly, if it’s just this, there’s nothing wrong, and it would end with just that.
“Burrowing snakes inhabit deep mountains and forests, coexisting with monsters and beasts that make their territory there. And they rarely move from there.”
“You mean it’s strange for it to be in the royal capital? For example, wouldn’t it be unthinkable that it followed a hunter or an adventurer and was lost?”
“I can’t say that it’s impossible, but it is said that unless its partner dies, it won’t change its symbiotic partner. Leaving aside what the building where she picked it up is, it is hard to imagine, because it was emancipated despite having people coming in and out of the building.”
“Alex, what do you think?”
“I think it’s strange too. Maybe I’m thinking too much, but I think you should tell the former duke.”
“He hasn’t come back yet… I’ll let him know as soon as he comes back. Take a seat first.”
Since they’re bringing it to Grandpa… could it be something serious?
How troubling, isn’t it?
Looking at the snake while tilting my head and thinking of that, it also began to tilt its head.
