Sebastian opened the large gate and went inside.1[大きな門を開けて中に入る] I took a liberty here to assume that it was Sebastian who opened the door. I mean, the butler’s job, right? The raw didn’t state who, so, yea. Translator’s power!!
Unlike the luxurious exterior, the interior was very relaxing.
To tell you the truth, I was a little nervous because I was afraid that the interior would be too extravagant with chandeliers, sculptures, and red carpets.
Gail-san took me by the hand as we walked through the room and came to a large door.
He was standing right next to me, and Douglas-san was standing diagonally behind me on the left.
“I guess my parents are in here. Chika, there’s no need to be nervous.”
Even though he said that there was no reason not to be nervous.
After all, they are my partner’s parents.
I thought it would never happen in my life to go and greet the parents of my marriage partner, but I never thought it would turn out this way.
I’m the wife, though.
Gail-san knocked on the big door.
“Father, Mother, it’s Gail. I’ve just returned.”
“Gail, come in.”
Gail-san opened the big door with one hand and walked in.
I followed his lead with my hand still clasped in his hand.
Two men were sitting on the sofa in the center of the large room.
One of them looked very much like Gail-san.
He had short, trimmed dark brown hair and bear ears of the same color.
His beard was longer than Gale-san’s, giving him a sense of dignity.
His face is deeply chiseled and fearless, and the deeply etched wrinkles give him an austere look.
His physique is just like Gail-san’s, and you can tell even through his clothes that he has a well-trained body.
He looked like what Gail-san would look like in another twenty years.
There was another man sitting next to him.
This man also had a very good physique.
He was not as big as Gail-san, but perhaps, he was more like Douglas-san?
His hair was short and completely brown, and he had bear ears on top of his head.
His face was well-shaped, but his eyes were narrow. He also had a softness that seemed to be in contrast to his robust physique.
He seemed to be a man of gentle spirit and firmness.
When I looked at him, he smiled at me.
“Chika, let me introduce you. I’d like you to meet my father, Virgil, and my mother, Rickham.”
Gail-san introduced me to the man who looked like him and the other man, showing them with his hand.
Right! I should introduce myself, too.
“It’s a pleasure to meet you. I’ve been greatly indebted to Gail-san. My name is Shinra Chikayuki.”
After a short introduction, I bowed deeply.
When I did that, Virgil-sama, who looked a lot like Gail-san, opened his mouth with a blank expression.
“I’m Virgil. I see, so you’re the human who seduced my precious only son.”
“Eh, no, …… that …….”
I was shocked by Virgil-sama’s words.
Seduced? I never thought that he would think like that. What to do? What should I do?
I heard a click of metal on my side when I was puzzled.
“Father, I don’t care how much of a father you are, I will not allow you to insult my mate.”
When I looked closely, I saw that Gale-san had an angry expression on his face and his hand was on his sword.
“Ga, Gail-san, please calm down. I’m fine…”
“Hahahaha…. Ah, sorry Gail….”
When I thought that loud laughter sounded as if to interrupt my words, Virgil-sama lowered the corner of his eyes and laughed, unlike the stiff expression he had just now.
[Rickham] “Virgil, I told you not to talk to him as if you were testing him!”
[Virgil] “But, Rickham, that Gail is coming home with a mate, you see? It’s tempting to play a few tricks. Look at him! Have you ever seen Gail like that before?”
“Indeed, I had never seen Gail shouted and get so furious like that before. Look, he’s troubled, isn’t he?”
Rickham-san looked at me and lowered his head.
“I’m sorry, I’m Rickham. It’s his bad habit to try various things when he sees someone new. This time, he couldn’t stand it when he heard that someone as rigid as Gail would bring his spouse. Can you please forgive his behavior?”
“Please raise your head! I don’t mind at all. I’m the one who thinks it must be troubling for you to suddenly hear that someone like me is your precious son’s companion2So, I’ll try to reason with you when I use each word. I’ll mainly use spouse when it’s Gail or Douglas who says it. Partner when it’s Chika who says it to friends or someone he can chat with leisurely. A companion when Chika says it to the person above his age or to someone he needs to pay respect to. And pair when the kanji usage is different. Usually, kanji for “pair” is in brackets and I use that too, so, you’ll know. Just to make the whole Japan tradition and culture intact and reasonable in English~ 🙂…”
Rickham-sama suddenly struck Virgil-sama on the head with a slap.
“Look, Virgil, it’s your fault he’s confused. Well, Chikayuki-dono3-dono is an honorific to address a male (or female) younger than you, but you have respect for them. Just like -kun, but in a more archaic way~, isn’t that right? We’re happy to have you.”
“Oh, sorry, sorry. I apologize for my rudeness, Chikayuki-dono. I hope you will forgive me.”
Even Virgil-sama bowed deeply.
“Please don’t! I have nothing to apologize for, so please raise your head.”
“I see. I can understand why Gail would be captivated by you. You are honest, polite, and adorable. It’s like a little bit of a criminal offense, but you’re an adult, aren’t you?”
“Yes, I’m 16 years old.”
“I see, I see… well, we still have time. How about a chat? You can sit there and Sebastian will bring us some tea soon. Douglas-sama4Why Virgil (who’s obviously older than Douglas plus his master/teacher) called Douglas with-sama? Because Douglas is a royalty., I’m sorry to have you standing there.”
“Master, it’s been a while. I am aware that this is a family affair, so please don’t worry about me.”
I was surprised to see Douglas-san speaking to him using honorifics. But he called Virgil-sama master, so I guess they must have a deep relationship.
I was about to sit down on the sofa when Gail-san took me in his arms.
No way!? And so I thought to myself, but he still placed me in on his lap.
“Uh… Um… Gail-san, as expected, isn’t it bad to sit on your lap in front of your parents…?”
“Is there anything wrong with that?”
“No, it’s not that it’s wrong, but…”
I glanced over at my in-laws and saw that they were looking at me with wide eyes.
I was wondering if this was disrespectful, but then they both started laughing as if they couldn’t take it anymore.
“Hey, Rickham, are you watching? That Gail’s got a man on his lap! That Gail, you know, the one who never paid attention to anyone, who was said to have a heart of steel and the ultimate simpleton.”
“Yeah, I see it. I’m still having a hard time believing what I’m seeing, but this isn’t a dream, is it?”
“Hiyaa, I saw something really good. Oh, Chikayuki-dono, please don’t mind us and stay on his lap. It’s the normal behavior of bears towards their [pair]. There’s no need to worry about it.”
Even so, I couldn’t help but feel embarrassed to stay on Gail-san’s lap in public. But he wouldn’t let me go, and when I glanced at Douglas-san, he gave me a look that told me to give up.”
After that, Sebastian, who brought us tea, had almost the same reaction as Gail-san’s parents.
“So, I’ve been getting reports from Mintz, but honestly, I can’t believe all of it. No, of course, we know that you would never lie to us, but still…”
As we sipped our tea, Virgil-sama began to speak.
“It’s all true. Chika is from another world, and he can use unusual healing techniques that would be unthinkable in this world. Also, his unusual rank and title are all facts. As proof of this, as you can see, my legs are completely back to normal, and so is Doug’s arm.”
Douglas-san flipped up his cloak and showed them his left arm sticking out of it.
“Alas, it would be quicker to have a look at his tag. Chika, I’m sorry, can you pull out your tag for us?”
“Yes, I understand.”
I took the tag out of my chest and put the magic power into it as I had been taught.
This time, it is fully opened.

I’m thrilled to see my partner’s names displayed on the screen.
And if we look closely, there’s something new in the skills and titles… What’s this?
I was thinking about this when Virgil-sama opened his mouth.
[Virgil] “Indeed, this is the real thing. Plus, there’s no better evidence than your leg and Douglas-sama’s arm, so we have to admit it.”
[Gail] “Well then.”
[Virgil] “I’ve already spoken to Albert-sama and Hector-sama. You may go to the castle tomorrow and discuss the matter.”
[Gail] “Thank you, Father.”
[Chika] “Thank you, Virgil-sama.”
I bowed my head along with Gail-san.
Hi! Thank you for the comments. It’s so encouraging to know that people react positively to my translates. Anyway, I have so much to say about this chapter, so, here it is:
- 1[大きな門を開けて中に入る] I took a liberty here to assume that it was Sebastian who opened the door. I mean, the butler’s job, right? The raw didn’t state who, so, yea. Translator’s power!!
- 2So, I’ll try to reason with you when I use each word. I’ll mainly use spouse when it’s Gail or Douglas who says it. Partner when it’s Chika who says it to friends or someone he can chat with leisurely. A companion when Chika says it to the person above his age or to someone he needs to pay respect to. And pair when the kanji usage is different. Usually, kanji for “pair” is in brackets and I use that too, so, you’ll know. Just to make the whole Japan tradition and culture intact and reasonable in English~ 🙂
- 3-dono is an honorific to address a male (or female) younger than you, but you have respect for them. Just like -kun, but in a more archaic way~
- 4Why Virgil (who’s obviously older than Douglas plus his master/teacher) called Douglas with-sama? Because Douglas is a royalty.
