Chapter 12 – Girl and family preparations
While waiting for mister Athos and the others to contact us, we decide to prepare to move to the beast people’s village.
I wonder what their village is like.
I grew up in a remote village, so there’s a lot I don’t know and want to learn.
Will they teach me if I ask
Books are precious things, but apparently there are records of miko in books, so I’m curious.
And the gryphons and Scifo are always helping me, so I want to do something in return.
I want to get along with Gaius, mister Athos, and the others.
“I wonder if we’ll get along.”
I get along with the gryphons and Scifo, but I’ve never been able to make friends with humans.
I’m going to do my best, but I’m a little anxious.
In the heat of the moment I said I want to go there, but I wonder how things will turn out.
“Guruguruu!! (We’re with you!!)”
Said Rema and Miha, one close to me on the left and the other on the right.
The gryphons and Scifo are with me, so I’m going to do my best.
When I was abandoned, I thought I was going to die soon.
I didn’t know what to do and was just walking aimlessly until Scifo found me.
Scifo found me, guided me, and brought me to the gryphon nest.
I’m sure Scifo doesn’t know just how happy that made me.
Scifo brought me here, where everyone is kind and warm, and that’s why I can be so optimistic now.
Thinking that I’m probably the miko makes me more relaxed, and gives me the feeling that things will work out somehow.
It’s because everyone here is with me that I have the courage to do my best.
(We’re here so you don’t need to worry.)”
While surrounded by Rema and Rumiha I suddenly hear a voice, and when I look in that direction, I see shining golden feathers.
Reimar is like a mother.
She’s kind, warm, and her voice is soft.
No, it’s not just Reimar, everyone here is like a mother, father, brother, or sister.
We’re going to be there for a while, so we should get ready.)”
We’re going to check out the beast people’s village.
I don’t know what will happen then, but we need to prepare if we’re going.
Having that said, I don’t have any luggage.
When it comes to clothes, I only have the ones that mister Athos and the others brought me.
They’re pretty and brand new.
I always wore my sister’s hand-me-downs, so I’m happy to wear something pretty.
I’m wearing a one piece with a flower pattern.
My only luggage is a brush I use to brush Scifo and the gryphons, and a canteen.
I don’t think I need anything else as long as they’re all with me.
I was wondering what kind of preparations the gryphons and Scifo were making, but it turns out they’re collecting all the little things they have gathered over time, to take with them.
They’ve been collecting a lot of things, even ones I don’t know what they’re for.
It doesn’t look like Scifo is taking anything in particular, but he’s helping the gryphons.
He’s always nice to them, and even though they are different, they always get along.
“What will happen to the nest while we’re there”
As I watch everyone get ready, a thought suddenly pops into my head.
What will happen to this nest while we’re in the beast people’s village
(We don’t know what we will do after we go there, so we’re vacating it.)”
It looks like they’re leaving the nest empty after we leave for the village.
They continued getting ready, and after a while I start talking to Lyon and Yuin about the beast people’s village.
“Gurugurugururu (What’s the place where the people with the animal ears live like)”
“I don’t know.
That’s why I’m looking forward to it.”
Yuin calls beast people “people with animal ears”.
I have no idea what their village is like, but I’m looking forward to finding out.
“Gurugurugururuuruu… (I want to eat something good…)”
Said Yuin’s older brother Lyon.
Lyon has a big appetite, and always enjoys eating more than anyone else.
I wonder what the village is like.
As I talk with Lyon and Yuin, I keep going back to this thought.
