Original translator: 黒曜石ペガサス Original chapter
So I don’t know Yoraikun’s plans, but I feel like it would be a waste of his time to re-translate chapter 264. So, I took the liberty of editing it. I don’t know how accurate it is, and maybe Yoraikun is going to re-translate it anyway, but hopefully, I could save him some effort and go straight to chapter 265.
Edit: Good Job everyone! Thanks for all pitching in! Special thanks to rafutalio for a great TLC.
Chapter 264 (Edited)
“Where to next?” (Raphtalia)
“Let’s see… let’s go to to Firo’s room.” (Naofumi)
I gave Firo a room once. Specifically, a room in my house.
I thought the Filo Rial barn would be fine, but since Firo wanted it, it couldn’t be helped.
Children want their own rooms, don’t they? It’s the same as that.
She herself hasn’t really used it though.
I put a lock in place just in case, but I guess it’s a good time to see what she’s been up to.
We go into my house, and I open the door to Firo’s room.
“This is….” (Naofumi)
Children’s toys and shiny things are scattered all over the place. It looks just like a little kid’s room.
Except, there’s a bird nest made of straw.
Has she used it? There aren’t many traces of it.
“There may be eggs around.” (Naofumi)
“Can Firo even lay eggs?” (Raphtalia)
“Well, maybe she made some with Motoyasu… no, Melty.” (Naofumi)
“Melty’s a human girl!” (Raphtalia)
Raphtalia’s retort is sharp huh.
But, while Rafutalia may not know, Firo and Melty have that kind of relationship.
The main cause for that was me though.
That whole affair is way over my head.
She herself claims it isn’t like that however.
“I don’t know, some might even be Naofumi-sama’s.” (Raphtalia)
“As if that’s possible!” (Naofumi)
God, Raphtalia, who would think that?
Don’t talk nonsense like making Firo my partner. (ED: In a sexual way)
…Just a little while ago she attacked me, however. [ED: also translatable as raped lol]
In any case, is such a messy room even worth investigating? But…
So, while thinking ‘is there even anything in such a disordered room,’ I investigate, however……
Some quite expensive-looking minerals and ornaments were carelessly placed around.
Just where did this come from?
Then, these bones inside the nest, the hell are they? Leftovers?
Firo that girl, if I think about it she does have two sides to her.
The airheaded, pure side and the wild animal, proper, side. Perhaps, the wild animal one is her true nature.
Well I’ve been careful before, there aren’t pellets so it’s fine but……
This bone…is dragon-ish.
Are these the spoils of war from when I let Firo go wild and had her raise her Lv?
“She’d probably get mad if we take them away, huh?” (Naofumi)
“I think she’d be angry from you looking around at your own accord.” (Raphtalia)
Filo Rial chicks come out from the insides of my armor and start examining the room.
“What is this?!” (Raphtalia)
“Well, some chicks I received from Firo, but just from where did they come from?” (Naofumi)
When I take my armor they’re not there, even when I take off my clothes they don’t come out.
At times, they come out from the gaps in my armor.
What are these Filo Rial chicks?
“Naofumi-sama, could they be… parasitic?” (Raphtalia)
“What did you say?” (Naofumi)
These two chicks, it can’t be, they are parasitizing me?
Don’t joke around!
The two baby chicks go and take something from the nest.
What is that?
They come back with a gem a little bigger than my fist.
“What a pretty gem. It’s light-pink colored.” (Raphtalia)
“Yeah… What is it?” (Naofumi)
“Who knows.” (Raphtalia)
With my [Judgment], I try to identify it. [ED: Judgement here is used as a name of an ability. Exactly when Naofumi got it is unknown to me.]
Firo’s …Magic Stone?
With the magic stone, the two monster chicks jump into my hand .
“I hold it and then?” (Naofumi)
“If Firo finds out about this, won’t it be dangerous?” (Naofumi)
The two monster chicks buzz and shake their necks.
What are you two doing!?
While I was wondering about this, the magic stone in my hand melts and then evaporates.
A cloud of smoke billows up, and some kind of vapor flies towards me.
Ah Crap! Watch out!
Immediately after I thought that, the smoke wraps around me….and clears up.
“Wha, what was that?” (Naofumi)
“Naofumi-sama, are you all right?” (Raphtalia)
“I don’t feel particularly weird….” (Naofumi)
Just in case, I confirm my Status.
I would be troubled if I got some Status Abnormality while I didn’t notice.
It may be bad judgement from me, but I feel as though my magic power has increased. Actually…What’s going on?
Something like Gaelion’s divine protection seems to have been applied.
Also, I feel like I can tell where Firo is.
Presumably, she’s heading my direction.
Seriously, what’s going on here?
“Seriously you-!” (Naofumi)
As I think that, the two chick’s monster crest begin to change.
The shield is shining.
Skill < Filo-Rial: Familiar> Mastered.
Skill <Filo-Rial: Mode-Change>
It’s like those familiars from games right…?
What exactly is it?
But, if I mind it too much it’ll be dangerous.
Firo is very soon coming back home!
“Raphtalia. Hurry and get out. Firo is coming back!” (Naofumi)
“Eh? Um, yeah!” (Raphtalia)
We leave from the room in a hurry.
Immediately after that.
“I’m back!ー” (Firo)
Firo comes happily through the front door.
“Welcome back.” (Raphtalia)
“Y, you seem to have known I was coming back huh.” (Firo)
“Well, somehow.” (Naofumi)
I wonder what’s that?
I can feel where Firo is without checking for things like Ki.
Speaking of which, Familiar ・ Firo Rial and Monster Change ・ Filo Rial are what exactly?
“Ah, Masterー. You seeー, Fitoria’s learned Skill, the thanks for the other timeー” (Firo)
She saw through me!?
In that case, there’s no need to hide, huh?
“Well, you seeー, those children were entrusted by Fitoria and sent to Master, butー…They’re monsters created to be able to protect Master any timeー” (Firo)
“I see, so is that why they appear all of a sudden?” (Naofumi)
“Un. She said they stayed quiet until they adapted to Masters magicー” (Firo)
“They’re not parasites inside me?” (Naofumi)
“Yeah, um ….huh? I can’t hear her voice anymore!?” (Firo) (TL: Fitoria’s voice)
Firo touches her ahoge and answers.
I knew it.
These Filo Rial chicks ARE parasites inside of me!
“If you dislike it, we can attach it to Firo though.” (Firo)
“It’s become possible for Master’s magic power to be granted to Firo, so Firo knows where Master is.” (Firo)
“Ah, that’s right” (Naofumi)
“…A while ago, weren’t you in Firo’s room?” (Firo)
Well, even if it’s exposed to Firo, there’s no particular problem.
“Well, we went to go see your room. Be a little more organized.” (Naofumi)
“In your nest, we found a cherry pink stone.” (Naofumi)
“There was such a thingー? Firo didn’t know at allー” (Firo)
“Didn’t know huh?” (Naofumi)
“Now that you mention it… Melty-chan said she saw it too, the next morning from when we slept together.”(Firo)
“Recently, the Melty had the same kids as Master. Did she get it the same way?” (Firo)
Melty was parasited too?
She simply has a worrisome nature too.
Is it wrong to say that I’m the cause?
At any rate, it bothers me so let’s stick them to Firo.
I grab the two and press them against Firo. They become soft and go into her.
Raphtalia is wide eyed.
The human form Firo’s wings shine.
An icon for FiloRial: Mode Change pops up into my view.
….It seems to have some sort of numerical pattern.
Default settings such as power, speed, and magic, as well as various other things, pop up.
For the time being, let’s try power.
“Ah, I feel like some kind of power is surging out of me” (Firo)
Ah, so I can tamper with Firo’s settings with this?
Let’s change it back to default. If she ends up going out of control, it’ll be troublesome.
The two chicks slip into my armor.
Damn! GET OUT!
Thus, I took off my armor, but they didn’t come out! They’re not underneath my clothes either.
Jeez, Filo Rials are unnecessary things to install on me.
Or maybe I should say, Firo strangely got a power up possibility, that kind of thing? Don’t screw with me.
It would’ve been better if I never examined Firo’s room.
I think I’ll give her multiple, unreasonable instructions in spite!
“Firo, your room is surprisingly dirty. I want it cleaned regularly!” (Naofumi)
Somehow happy, Firo starts cleaning her room as per my instructions.
The expensive-looking minerals etc. aren’t needed, so she took them to the storehouse. At least a little bit of her judgement seems to have improved.
“Somehow, you seeーI feel like now I can understand Master betterー” (Firo)
“Is that so” (Naofumi)
“I won’t lose to Onee-chan.” (Firo)
“What are you talking about?” (Naofumi) (TL: Sorry Raphtalia, dense mofo)
“Master, after this are you going to look around the rooms of the other children in the village?” (Firo)
I had thought about looking through the village once.
As long as it’s not my stuff we’re all going to see, it’s all right.
So after that, we take Firo around the village to inspect things in everyone else’s rooms.
Next, we go to the Loincloth dog… I mean, Kiel’s room, and find her diary.
Of course we read it and, the contents were things like what delicious food she ate that day, how to wear the loincloth, ‘in order to become a honorable man,’ etc.
……Inside the room there is a dog house, what does that mean!? That Loincloth dog…
Next is valley girl. (TL: Taniko)
She seems to be researching monster ecology, but it’s an orderly room.
All of my monsters are cataloged and organized in books by size, shape, and personality, with details written very meticulously on each page.
She loves her monsters the same as ever I guess.
“Somehow, all this seems like a bad thing… I guess everyone’s got a unique personality right?” (Raphtalia)
“I guess so…” (Naofumi)
Next up is Atlas and Fohl’s house.
In fact, until recently, Atlas is the one who used it.
……I check inside and the cleaning seems to be thorough.
Well, Atla always hangs by my place, so if Fohl isn’t around, it mostly goes unused?
First is Fohl’s room.
There’s only a table and a well-made bed haphazardly shoved in the room.
Well, he came back today so there’s no reason for there to be any changes.
Inside Atlas’s room, it somehow explosively became full of stuffed animals.
Atlas never gave indication she was into that, did she?
Wait a sec, these couldn’t be Fohl’s belongings, could they?
Rather than Atlas’s room…this is Fohl’s room!?
I feel like it’s become more fancy than when I saw it before.
Pink wallpaper hung on the walls. There’s not much evidence that the bed was used.
Somehow…… it feels disconnected from all the rooms I’ve seen up until now, this room.
Like a girl vibe for instance…
“It’s such a lovely room. Is this the room Atla-chan sleeps in?” (Raphtalia)
“No. It’s probably more likely that the room won’t be used until Fohl gets back.” (Naofumi) (TL: poor Fohl)
“True, Atlas is usually always sleeping in the bed next to Master.” (Firo)
“……That’s my bed!?” (Raphtalia)
“Now that you mention it, that’s true. She and Sadina sleep together.” (Naofumi)
“I’m stuck with sleeping on the bed with Atla-chan and Sadina-neesan’s smell, is it……?” (Raphtalia)
Raphtalia’s eyebrows rise a little frustratedly.
Come on now, don’t be like that.
What Atlas actually wants is to sleep in my bed, but pointing that out doesn’t seem necessary.
Let’s leave it as Fohl’s dream room.
So…… about Sadina’s room, it’s not in this village.
Her house is in that secret base.
After that is Imia’s room.
The Lumos prepared their residence under the village.
I hear it’s been built such that a cave-in doesn’t happen.
Because it’s not made from Camping Plant, I can’t force my way in, but there was no lock.
The inside of Imya’s room is full of drawings of clothes. What appear to be molding models, etc, were put around, so I can see she was tackling dressmaking seriously.
Oh? The sunglasses I made are decorating the room it seems.
The one she’s using now is one I later asked another of the Lumo race to make.
‘It’s better than the one I made off the cuff, right?’ as such I recommended it.
To greatly value her things, what a good girl.
The main stuff is here, huh?
The remaining slaves’ stuff are pretty similar.
Except, just like Firo’s, many of them are pretty dirty.
At dinner, I inform them that I did the surprise inspection and caution them.
