Chapter 291 – God and the Child of God
Caroline stared at me for a while.
Although her fervent eyes regained their calm, Caroline didn’t stop staring at me.
「What’s the matter, Caroーー」
「ーーun? What is it?」
「I want to see many more kinds of people」
Caroline nodded clearly.
This might actually be the first time since we’ve met, the first time she “asked” something from me like this.
「I want to look at many many more people」
「Just look at them?」
「……yosh, I got it」
I don’t know what she’s up to, but I wanted grant what she wants.
The current Caroline is completely different from when we just met.
During that time, her eyes were obscure, they were blank as if she did not have any goal.
But right now, it’s the opposite. I don’t know what “that” is, but her eyes are clearly showing her desire for “something”.
If so, then I need to grant her need.
「Let’s go on a capitals tour then」
Hikari tilted her head and repeated what I said.
「Yeah, we’re going to go on all of the capitals of the five great kingdoms. Those cities have the most people after all」
「That sounds fun〜! Can Hikari go too?」
I would always unconditionally listen to my cute Hikari’s requests.
『Your sickness (being a doting parent) is getting worse』
Eleanor said while rolling her eyes.
I don’t understand what she’s saying so I didn’t mind her.
After telling Nana I’ll be back during the night, I warped away bringing Caroline and Hikari with me.
Calamba Kingdom’s royal capital, Meteora.
We took a seat on a café terrace, giving Caroline the position where she could see the passersby well.
Caroline stared at the people come and go very intently.
「How is it? Do you think you can grasp anything?」
Caroline didn’t answer.
She seemed to be so focused on the passersby that she couldn’t hear my words.
「Onee-chan, she’s so concentrated〜」
「That’s true. I’m curious what she’s seeing and how she’s seeing them」
「Even Otou-san doesn’t know?」
「Not yet, at least. Although I can guess that it’s something like her adjustment of the voice frequencies for her, there is still not enough information」
「Oh. But Onee-chan, she looks so pretty like that〜」
Looking at Caroline watching the passersby, I found it pretty just like what Hikari said.
She had her lips closed, her eyebrows tight, with her eyes staring straight forward.
She looked as serious as she could be, making her very beautiful.
Suddenly, Caroline turned to me.
「What’s the matter?」
But after staring at me for a while, she returned to watching the passersby once again.
「I wonder what it is〜?」
Although I don’t understand her actions, I thought that I should let her do what she wants.
It was at that time. I heard high-pitched voices.
A group of women was moving at the same pace.
Looking closely, those women were surrounding a certain man.
The surrounded him while giggling and raising screams with laughter.
Taking another look, the man looked pretty handsome.
He has a swimmer’s body and a handsome face. It’s a good-looking guy enough to be a male idol.
『What the heck is that』
「An actor or maybe a singerーーin this world, probably a bard or something? Or maybe he’s a host……what’s the closest to a host here?」
While guessing, I tried to match the differences between this world and my previous world.
『Hmm. That seems to be the case. He’s pretty popular too, it seems』
「Is that so?」
『Look around him closely』
「Hmm……? Heh〜, there’s a lot of girls who couldn’t get near but watching from afar」
『It looks like about thirty percent of the women around her like that guy』
She probably didn’t notice the commotion. Caroline saw that group for the first time when they passed right in front of us.
She was staring straight up until then, but her eyes suddenly followed that group.
After they reached a distance where she can’t see them anymore, Caroline looked towards me once again.
……this, am I being compared?
That’s probably so.
Caroline looked at many kinds of people, then look at me after doing that.
She’s comparing me with other people. At least that’s what it made me feel.
Although I didn’t know why she’s doing so, I let her do what she wants.
In the royal capital of the Aegina Kingdom, Rethim.
We’re on the last part of our capitals tour. Under the setting sun, Caroline watched the passersby as she did in the four other capitals, and from time to time, she would look towards my direction.
I’m currently patting Hikari’s head.
I patted Hikari who got tired and fell asleep and stared back at Caroline.
She was only comparing me to other people until nowーーbut for the first time, Caroline opened her mouth.
「Un? Have you had enough?」
「Un, I’ve had enough」
「Have you grasped something?」
「God is God after all」
「You also said that before we went on the tour. Did you wanted to confirm that?」
“For what reason,” I thought, but since Caroline is convinced by it, then I thought that that’s fine too.
Caroline reached out and took my hand.
She held my hand tightly, then brought it to her chest, hugging it strongly.
She used her hands to envelop my hands and hugged it tightly.
Her fingers were sinking to the back of my hand. She’s holding it as tightly as she could.
「What’s the matter, Caroline」
「I want God」
I thought of what she meant for an instant.
If she means it literally, then she’s telling me she wants me to make love with her.
If it were anyone else within my harem, I would’ve instantly brought them to my bed after hearing them say such a cute line and loved them intensely.
But, it’s a bit hard to say since it’s Caroline.
I don’t know if she’s saying that “in that sense”.
「God is so big, so bright, and so warm. He is different to any other; God is only God」
Her lines sounded a bit abstract, but it’s probably her conclusion after this tour.
「Looking at God, I……」
Caroline was about to say it, but stopped.
She doesn’t seem to have done it because of the usual shyness or embarrassment.
She had an expression saying that she wants to say something, yet cannot find the words to describe them.
That’s why I took action from my side.
To confirm what the thing that she “wants” means literally what it is.
I reached out my hands, holding her chin and pulling her to me at the same time.
I gave the surprised Caroline a pecking kiss then stopped.
Caroline widened her eyes to surprise, but soon after.
She presses her lips strongly to mine.
She didn’t even know how to close her eyes when kissing. She only pressed her lips to mine with eyes opened.
Sheーーshe strongly desires for me.
In other words, it was really like that.
I grabbed her on the shoulder and gently pushed her a little.
「Close your eyes, accept everything as it is」
Seeing her eyes close, I brought her back to my mansion using my Warp Feather, and pushed her down on the bed.
『Kukuku, this must be incest since it’s the God and the Child of God』
I flicked the joking Eleanor with my finger.
I looked at Caroline who desires me strongly. I took her clothes off and granted her wish.
