PMZ 100 – ★It’s not puberty that came late. believe me!

TL note: as usual, Hayato POV. if you can see at the title then it’s Hayato time.

After many twists and turns, Alice has decided to infiltrate the Baron Maple family.

She comes to that decision after talking with Miss Anna, Alice said that Anna didn’t seem to have a good family relationship and thought it might be good to have a third party intervene.

To be honest, her plan didn’t make any sense to me, because no matter how much I tried to think about it, she doesn’t need to become a maid.

But I’m not opposed to it because what the owner says is absolute. I just want to go with her. This is the only thing I can’t compromise. I know Alice is strong, but I’m too worried about her in many ways.

However, I’m a stranger, and since we’re going to infiltrate a noble family. I couldn’t just walk around all the time, so I choose to work as a chimney sweep.

When I was a child, I used to climb on the roof with my father, so at least I know how to do it.

As I was about to set up the ladder to the roof, a gardener working nearby shouted, “Oh no!”

“What’s the matter?”

“mm? …Ah, it’s about the lavender here. Baron bought it because he said it was a new variety, but it didn’t seem to take root well. And now It’s dead.”

When I looked at it, I saw that the flowers had indeed wilted and the stems had turned brown.

“Everyone was looking forward to it because they said it had a strong fragrance, but it’s a pity… I see, some of these are doing better than others. It’s a difference in pruning, I guess I need to trim it more often.”

“Do you want me to fix it?”


I hold my hand over the withered lavender and cast a restorative spell. This spell also works on plants.

If the environment is not good after the healing, the plant will eventually die, but the magic can temporarily revitalize it.

The wilted flowers stood up straight and regained their freshness.

The gardener seemed quite surprised to see this.

“Lad, you can use magic?”

“Yes, but only a little.”

“That’s still amazing. I’ve seen people who can use water magic on plants, but I’ve never seen anyone use recovery magic on plants.”

“My sister’s magic constitution is fire, so it was not uncommon for her to make flowers wilt while growing them. “

“Oh, I see. That’s true, I’ve heard that story before. Fire attuned people don’t get along well with plants.”

“That’s right.”

Of course, if you know what you’re doing and take good care of it, you can grow it without it dying. But Lav was even more unsuited to the task because of her rash nature. she was the kind of girl who can make the cactus wither.

Even though she wasn’t that good at it, she would always buy potted plants, so the house we lived in was full of flowers.

–I wish he hadn’t done that. Speaking of which, we should do something about that house soon.

Lav took all the flowers with her when she went to the duke’s house, so that part is settled, but soon, no one will live there anymore, and I’m sure we won’t be back.

If any of my younger siblings who are old enough to leave the orphanage want to use them, I’ll let them. On the condition after a year or two, after they get used to living on their own, they need to pass it to the next generation.

While I was thinking about this, I cast a recovery spell on the lavender in the area. The gardener reaped some of the healthy flowers and handed them to me.

“Thank you,” he said. “Here, take this and give it to the girl you like.”

“Are you sure?”

“Yeah. I’ll have to prune it anyway, I also need to give it to the masters, but I’ll pick one with better color and shape. You take this one, lad.”

“Thank you.”

I thought of Alice’s smiling face holding a lavender flower.

Her beautiful blonde hair and blue eyes will make this blue-violet-colored flower look many times more vivid.

No, on the contrary, she might make it look hazy. There is nothing more beautiful than Alice in this world. My wife is prettier than a flower, …oops, I’m starting to think like a drunkard in a bar.

I loved the idea, but I don’t know about Alice. I’d be shocked if she said I was creepy. I’m starting to feel like I need to pull myself together.

Later, I discovered Alice’s burns.

She said she knocked over a cup of tea, but normally you won’t have the burn on your head.

I had always felt that Alice was a poor excuse maker, so I was sure that I was right in feeling that she was lying.

I wondered if someone had done this to her. If that’s the case, I can’t forgive that person. I’ll kill them. I’m the only one who can hurt Alice–

 –No, no, no.

What am I thinking?

I don’t want to hurt Alice, and killing the person who did this also too excessive…

Perhaps it was because of this thought that I failed in my attempt to cast a recovery spell on Alice.

Suddenly, I felt as if my holy attribute had disappeared from my mind. This is the first time this has happened to me.

Every person possesses seven attributes.

Some attribute is stronger than others. It was different for each individual, some more attuned to fire, others to water, even those who can’t use them still possess that attribute.

The magic attribute is what gives elements to magic. It is impossible for a human being to lack a specific attribute.


How did I usually use the holy attribute?

It’s as if something has overshadowed something in me that I normally can use without even thinking about it.

I know it’s there, but I can’t reach it.

I wonder if this the feeling of a person who can’t use magic… it’s… frustrating.

I dug up the memory of a nun who taught me recovery magic when I was a child and moved the magic as carefully as I did the first time I used it.

I felt a slight hint of holy attributes mixed in.

Watching Alice’s burns heal, I felt relieved, but at the same time, for some reason, a feeling of disappointment rose in me.

 –It didn’t do well.

…What is this?

It’s my power, and I can’t figure it out. Is it because I was in love so much that it’s been messing with my mind…?

I’m starting to feel like I should put a hold on my feeling and calm down for a bit.

I was going to put a protection ward around Alice, but I trusted her and let her go back to work without doing anything.

Is this what the call maintaining a healthy relationship? Maybe a really healthy relationship doesn’t involve going to the other person’s place of work, but that was another matter.

I mean, right now, she’s a maid, right? If I miss this opportunity, I’m sure I’ll never see her as a maid again. No, she might wear it if I ask her to. But that’s not the same thing. {pervert}

Anyway, I didn’t interfere this time. But next time, if something happens again, I’ll force myself to take her home. I promise. If necessary, I’ll even reveal my identity.

I know Alice won’t like it, and neither do I, but I have no choice.

It would be easy to pressure her to tell the truth, compared to the pain she would feel and the injuries she would sustain.

After that, I worked with James, the gardener, to build a birdhouse and mounted it on the roof. We put some peanuts that James had given us around the perimeter to let the parent birds know that the location had changed.

The chicks were so cute when they were inside.

After cleaning up, I made another birdhouse and placed it near the window of the Grand Mistress’ room. By that time, it was already evening and I was just waiting for Alice to finish her work.

I asked the butler if there was anything I could do to help, but he replied that there was nothing in particular at the moment, and led me to a different servant’s room than the one I had entered during the day.

He told me that I could use this room for now.

Is this fine? There are a bed and a shower room, but isn’t this a live-in room?

I wondered about it, but it was a convenient place where other servants won’t come in without permission, so I decided to take advantage of it and took off my disguise.

These were my father’s work clothes. When I was a kid, I used to think it was really big, but before I knew it, I was the same size.

I don’t know why, but it makes me feel a little sentimental.

If my dad was still alive, I would have liked him to meet Alice. I’m sure he’s will be surprised to see how pretty she is.

I folded it up and put it away in the shadow storage, and I let myself use the shower. Even with the cloth and wind magic guarding my entire body, there was still going to be some soot left.

It was better to wash it off before touching anything in this room, of course.

It wasn’t long before I got out of the shower and changed my clothes.

I guess I will do my homework, I took out the academy’s assignment from my shadow.

A few moments later, there was a knock on the door and the butler arrived, just as I was finishing my assignment and doing my study.

He told me that the Grand Mistress wanted to see me.

It was already quite late. To be summoned at this time of night, I could only assume that something had happened to Alice.

I hurriedly hid my face and rushed to the Grand Mistress’ room, only to find Alice slumped on the single-seater sofa.

I was momentary shocked and did as the Grand Mistress asked, revealing my face.

I felt like my identity would be exposed, but it didn’t matter anymore. I have to get her to tell me everything that happened to her.

I brush Alice’s hair up and look at her face.

Her cheeks are slightly red, her blood color is not bad, and her breathing is calm, even if a bit ragged.

As I was relieved to see that she was unexpectedly calm, her eyes shifted from Alice to me, and the Grand Mistress jumped back as if she was frightened.

“What? Aren’t you …… different from the person in the daytime? did you switch places with someone else?”

Although I’m used to it by now, it takes a lot of effort to explain it to people who are seeing it for the first time every time. Most of the time, they will say that it’s impossible.

You know, I think so too.

“No, Grand Wife. I didn’t switch. There’s no need to be alarmed. I have a strange constitution. My hair color changes a little from morning to night. That’s all. Anyway, what drink did you give her?”

“Just normal alcohol. Your Wife must be very weak… Oh, by the way, I think I heard about someone with your constitution recently. Where did I hear that? I’m sure my son said he saw it at some knighthood ceremony…”

I gestured to the Grand Mistress, who gasped and tell her to keep her voice down.

If Alice has fallen asleep from alcohol, I want to let her sleep like this. I’m sure she’s tired.

The Grand Mistress put her hand over her mouth and said in a quiet voice.

”You… you are the one Duke Stuart recommended. Known as the youngest commoner ever to be knighted…”

That’s right.

It sounds great if you put it like this, but the Duke only did it for Alice, who is getting married to me, and because Lav is getting married to the Stuarts, so he needed to make a show.

“Why would a person like you do this…? Oh, perhaps this maid who claims to be your wife is a Duke’s daughter!?”

I supported the Grand Mistress, who was about to pass out at that point and made her sit on a chair. She looks so much paler now.

I can guess why. If she had only been working as a maid, it would have been left as a funny story, but she had injured herself.

However, we were the ones who forced our way to get in. The maid’s bad behavior was not good, but it was not something we could blame her for unilaterally.

First of all, let’s apologize for our rudeness. So, I knelt in front of the Grand Mistress and looked up at her.

“… a lot is going on. I’m sorry that I deceived you, even though there were circumstances.”

“Circumstances, …It’s about Anna, isn’t it? …How much did she know and what was in it for you? If you don’t mind, I’d like to know.”

I knew I deserved to be asked that question.

But for her to understand, I had to tell them what had happened at the institute.

I wasn’t sure how much I should tell her, but since I was talking to a woman in her own family, I tried to be somewhat mild about what Miss Anna had said and done.

However, it still seemed to be a shock to the Grand Mistress.

She fell out of her chair, dropped to her knees on the floor, and bowed her head.

“I deeply apologize…! My granddaughter has caused you both a great deal of trouble!”

“it’s just a bit annoying at most…”

It’s true, for me it’s just an annoyance. But I’m sure Alice would have been uncomfortable. After all, her fiancé was being hit on the right in front of her. If it were me, I would never be able to just sit back and watch.

“I’ll be sure to remind her of that and I’ll tell her firmly, also I’ll try to get her engaged as soon as possible. I’m sure she’ll settle down once she gets engaged…!”

Unable to say anything, I could only make the Grand Mistress stand up and return to her chair.

I’m not the kind of person who can say anything about the way a noble girl lives. I can only say my thoughts to Alice, but that’s because we’ll eventually be a family. I want Anna to choose the way of life that is best for her.

I can’t be a part of that, though.

I’m sure Alice feels the same way. If she didn’t, she wouldn’t have had to go through the trouble of pretending to be a maid to enter the household.

But for now,

“Could you please keep this matter to yourself for the time being? I’ll tell Alice – no, I’ll tell Alisha what I talked to you about,” I asked, and she nodded without a second thought.

I was going to reveal my identity if there was any danger, but it would be best if everything went off without a hitch.

Alice still had things to do at the academy, and if she could do it without Miss Anna finding out, it would be for the best.

After our conversation, I left the Grand Mistress’s room with Alice still asleep. When the Grand wife me if I would mind staying in the servant’s quarters, I felt a question mark in my head.


“You’re not leaving today, are you? We can arrange for a guest room instead of a servant’s room.”

“Ah, you’re right…”

I was about to say that I was going to leave, but then I realized that it was not an option.

Let’s say we leave now and headed to our house in town as planned.

In that case, where should I put Alice to sleep?

I’ve made up my mind never to go upstairs. Then my room is the only option. I don’t mind, but I don’t think it’s safe to be alone with her in this situation.

Should we go back to the duke’s house …? I’m not sure it’s a good idea to bring her home in a drunk state while dressing as a maid…

I immediately and gratefully decided to borrow a room and told her that we would be fine in the servants’ quarters. Because if we want to keep this thing secret, there’s no way for me to use the guest room.

“Thank you very much. I’m sorry to borrow two rooms.”

“What? It’s just one room. Didn’t I just give you to the couple’s room?”


Married couple’s room – that’s not good.

“No, please, any servant’s quarter will…”

“There are no more. All the live-in rooms are occupied.”

Oh, my God. I’m screwed.

The house in town, the duke’s house, or the couple’s room.

As long as Alice doesn’t wake up, I’ll end up in hell no matter which one I choose.

In a hurry, I shook her by the shoulders and called out, “Alice, wake up,” but there was no sign of her waking up at all. Seeing me like this, the Grand Mistress smiled at me mischievously.

“It’s fine, isn’t it? You’ve been living together for so many months, it’s no big deal for you to rest in the same room.”

she closed the door and said, “Have a good night.”
