Chapter 135: Praises

Chapter 135 of “Mastering Magic in an Otome Game Part 4 (Eildart Castle During Winter Break)”

As my eyes gradually became accustomed to the the light, I could see the expression of Brother Onyx on the balcony next to me.

He was dressed in a black nightgown and looked as if he was in a hurry.

As I blinked in surprise, Brother Onyx fluttered over the balcony fence, landed on my side of the balcony, and rushed over.

“What happened? Is something wrong?”

He looked at me with a worried voice and expression and squeezed my hand. Then I remembered my current condition.

It was the middle of the night, and I was alone with my forehead against the balcony railing, drooping. When he called out to me, all he had seen was a little girl with teary eyes…

Yeah, no matter how I looked at it, I looked like a super depressed person. Anyone would be worried if they saw that.

It was a common practice of mine to make people worry even if I rushed to fix it, so I smiled quietly and denied it.

“No, it’s nothing, Brother.”

“…Hm. There’s no way it’s nothing with you looking like that in the middle of the night!”

Eh?!? No, I was really just gloomy thinking about my past as a corporate slave, not that I had any ongoing thoughts about anything…!

I thought about it in circles and opened my mouth as quickly as I could.

“…Well, I was just thinking back to the daytime, and I was so scared…that I couldn’t sleep.”


No, actually I was fine. When I said something like that, Onyx was a little surprised, and then he looked concerned.

“So…you looked fine, but you were still scared, weren’t you?”


He seemed to be convinced, so he let go of my hand and patted me on the head.

“It’s okay. It’s not often that a demon beast appears in the city, and even less often that a special one like that appears around here.”

“Yes, that’s true. And since Brother Oluris and Brother Will are both here, even if we encounter them again, it won’t be a problem.”

So it’s okay now, I’m relieved, I’m going to bed! It’s cold!—I tried to continue, but when Brother Onyx heard what I said, he suddenly got a stuffy, bored expression.

“Hmph. I can use that level of magic if I work hard enough. It’s just that I couldn’t reach it first due to my position.”

“…………I see……?”

“You’re doubting me, aren’t you!?”

What?!? No, I’m not doubting…!

Well, I don’t think we’re at the same level yet.

I quickly tried to deny it, but Brother Onyx began to chant some spells with his muffled face.

I tried to stop him, but he didn’t seem to stop.

However, when the magic was completed, a soft, gentle warm breeze enveloped my body…warming my chilled cheeks and hands, and after one last stroke, I was free.


“Hmm, how’s that for an excellent adjustment?”

Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey!!

“It’s amazing, Brother Onyx! It’s amazing that you can picture the idea of a hair dryer and an air conditioner all by yourself!!”


I grabbed Brother’s hand and shook it.

I often encountered attacks, curses, and overall turbulent magic, but I hadn’t really ever been subjected to this kind of life magic.

Above all, using magic on people is difficult to adjust and makes one nervous, but Brother Onyx’s magic was comfortable. He definitely had a talent for it!

“As expected of Brother, he’s so delicate and wonderful! I’ve never seen anything like this before. You have a talent for magic!”


As I praised him with excitement, I was slightly surprised by how red he had turned before I knew it.

“…Well, I’m glad that you understand. Now, off to bed now! Go back to your room!”

“Ah, yes.”

He pushed my back and led me back to the window. While a bit confused, I saw Brother Onyx off as he slowly returned to his room.

That look…he’s not used to getting compliments, is he?

If that was the case, then I’d take the opportunity to praise him again. It’s best to compliment and praise children while raising them.

Become an excellent magician, Brother!

“Good night, Brother!”

When I called out quietly, but still cheerfully, Brother Onyx suddenly stopped and quickly raised his trembling hands before disappearing into the next room.


T/N: Hehe, I gotta say, flustered Onyx is pretty cute. Especially with Alice over there fondly looking over him like a mother 。゚(TヮT)゚。
