A Little while after the screaming baby, the five people resumed their friendly chat.
Of course the screaming baby――naturally me, Lilianne La Christophe can't join the friendly chat, so I was listening while being teased by Annela Obaasama.
The main speakers are Theo and Ellie, and they keep on rapidly talking without stopping. The subject is mostly me, Lilianne.
The two speak and speak so much it leaves me thinking whether they will hit bottom soon.
It's precisely the prideful and magnificent way of talking of Brother Fool and Sister Fool.
While listening to the two's proudful imouto talk, I heard a knocking on the door, and someone entered the room right after.
It wasn't possible to check because I was held by Annela Obaasama, but I immediately knew who came.
「Excuse me. Randolph-sama has arrived」
「Understood. We will immediately prepare so tell him to wait for a moment」
The butler who has approached informed us of old man Randolph's arrival.
It's about 2-3 Halls since sending the request of the medical examination. I thought it would be enough to come tomorrow, but he arrived quite early.
Does Christophe house have perhaps a priority? He's quite concerned about me, he's a person who will run his old body out of breath because of me.
「Well then, Roland-sama, Annela-sama. I'm taking Lily to change clothes, so I will excuse myself for a moment」
「I will help. Saa, Lily-chan, shall we go?」
「Obaasama, I will help as well!」
「Then, me too」
「In that case, I will also he-」
It has ended up with everyone wanting to help, but Roland's words didn't finish in the end.
I held a memorial in my mind for him who fell to prostrate on the floor.
Naturally, it was only female camp when we returned to my room.
Theo wanted to tag along, but he dejectedly returned to the object who was kissing the floor after getting glared by Ellie.
I have been wearing room wear in my room recently――with plenty laces and frills, a feminine camisole decorated with ribbons in various places, and frilly short skirted pants with ribbons on left and right side of the waist.
I don't feel uncomfortable anymore when wearing skirted pants. I have already surrendered to the frills, laces, and ribbons.
They are attached to every clothes. There is no other way anymore.
By the way, the cloth used instead of the diaper is slightly bulky, but it seems to have been calculated as it's not getting in the way of pants.
Sister and Obaasan raise a scream after finishing changing my clothes, but I dare to ignore it.
Certainly, my current gender is female. I can't choose clothes to wear by myself, nor refuse clothes that are put on me. No, I screamed in my mind when I realized for the first time, you know?
Although my body is that of a woman, my mind is still that of a man. I am uneasy about walking the life of a woman and truth to be told, I have not accepted the reality yet.
But, my mental state is unrelated to these women. When they shout, Theo 'still not done~?' keeps on urging.
The medical examination was repeated three times, and it ended with the conclusion that I'm completely blind.
The reason it has been repeated three times was naturally because of Roland Jiisan.
It seems that he wanted to cling onto the possibility no matter what it takes.
There might have been the conclusion Jiisan has wanted if the old man's tools had magical power, but unfortunately, the tools the old man used to inspect my eyes were all without magical power.
When the old man was inspecting my eyes, it seemed like he was holding something in his hands and waving with it. Because the hand which he held it in has hardly been shaking, was it a pendulum or something? It seems that he has confirmed whether I see or not with that.
Even if a baby sees, it would be difficult to expect a complicated answer.
Therefore, it seems that he examined me using a simple "eyes follow moving objects" method.
In addition to that, it seems that he has used many more instruments, but all of them had no magical power.
Therefore, I don't know what he was doing specifically.
Roland's serious expression wasn't destroyed after hearing the conclusion, but he uttered just single 'I see.'
He would probably not think that I saw at a convenient timing now.
Theo and Ellie dropped their shoulders sorrowfully, but Jiisan with serious expression took the old man outside. The door was closed, and I naturally haven't heard anything.
Theo and Ellie were like, even if blind Lily is Lily! Therefore, everything is all right! They said as if persuading themselves.
It was time for dinner after the medical examination, but because grandparents are eating with us today, they decided not to eat in my room as usually, but in one of the rooms downstairs.
I think that we could have eaten in my room even with the addition of the two grandparents, but because of the consciousness of wealthy or perhaps because of the labor of carrying food upstairs they decided to eat in a different room. Anyhow, good fragrance filled the room.
Maid-sans began carrying good smelling dishes on the table and we immediately began eating.
As always, I'm eating slowly with Ena guiding me.
Seeing that, Annela Obaasama was nonchalantly smiling as usual, and Roland Jiisan was observing.
It seems that he didn't give up the possibility that I may see even after the medical examination. He seems to think that there's timing in which I'm able to see, and he's looking for that timing. It feels like that.
There's no feeling of doubt anymore. The proof being that Annela Obaasama is not particularly minding him.
The dinner advanced with everyone quietly eating with the exception of Ena.
It appears that they don't serve many dishes at once, but carry in next meal after finishing the current course instead.
It seems that my dishes aren't the same, but they are similar to an extent.
I eat little by little with a guidance while tasting various dishes.
Recently, butter fried carrots are my favorite. It's not the usual long and narrow type, but they are carved into star shapes.
I eat them in mouthful with my fork guided by Ena. Naturally, the size is a baby's bite size. I believe that it's star shaped from the mouthfeel.
The flavor is mainly salty or just lightly seasoned, so among such flavors, the sweetness of this butter fried carrots is very delicious.
I liked carrots in my previous life, but I wasn't that fond of butter fried carrots.
I guess my tastes reflect those of a baby. Sweet things are delicious. On the contrary, bitter things are not.
I quite don't like separate things. At this rate, I wonder if I won't like bell peppers or something.
Because I loved bell peppers in my previous life, I'm slightly uneasy.
Incidentally, bell peppers haven't come out so far. It might be possible that they taste differently, but I have not come across anything that tasted close to a bell pepper. There's a possibility that it doesn't exist here since it's a different world, but if they do, I want to eat them by all means when I grow up.
In my previous life, I didn't like onions that much, but it's different now. The onion-ish tasting soup and the garnish that often appears is most likely an onion.
This is also sweet and delicious. It might be that I find everything sweet as delicious.
A child's palate is simple.
So it's because of that? Although the dishes are generally sweet, but I don't like most of them because the taste of salt is strong or it's too bland.
I eat both things I like and dislike, but I don't find it tasty unless it's a fruit or it has a sweet flavor.
I eat bread torn into small pieces that are handed to me.
Different worlds are usually described as worlds of hard rye bread in novels, but this is a mansion of rich people. Naturally, bread is soft. Moreover, delicious. Therefore, it perfectly suits my palate, so it's super delicious.
I think that I would like to eat this with the remaining butter fried carrots sauce, but I don't know where the plate with the carrots is so I can't do it.
Ena also doesn't offer such consideration. Although I understand, it's irritating at times like these.
Side dish, bread, soup or fruit water, I slowly savor the taste in such order.
I don't eat a lot since I'm still a baby, but I take much more time than the four who already finished eating.
Ena doesn't attend me the whole time today as Annela Obaasama switched with her when she finished eating.
Whether grasping my preferences by watching Ena, or just by a mere coincidence, she lets me eat in the order I find most delicious.
In the meanwhile, Ena seemed to have finished eating as well. I'm sure that she didn't eat hastily, but even still, she finished earlier than me.
It takes me that much time. Anyway, eating while having to be guided by other people takes time.
Although it's such mysterious dish that hardly changes in taste even after cooling down, why is the taste so salty or bland?
As expected, asking for a new meal because it has cooled down is not possible. It's different from the black tea.
After slowly eating the slightly cooled down butter fried carrots, my stomach became full. After all, the type of food that tastes of saltiness is not good even after cooling down.
But, it was a satisfactory dinner.
I don't mean to say that I'm not usually satisfied, but I was able to eat together with Ena today.
Moreover, grandparents were with me as well. As expected, eating a meal together makes it feel more delicious.
A scenery of a warm meal is the best spice.
Today's meeting of grandparents and their startling actions. The peerless sensation of Mofumofu-sama. Due to the fatigue from being teased by Annela Obaasama, I fell asleep faster than usually.
My memory skips here and there from around the time when Ena started talking about preparing the baby bath.
Not only Ena, but Annela Obaasama as also seems to be washing me clean, but I'm dozing off here and there.
Still, it seems that I'm being properly washed.
Bath is important. Not only it can keep the body clean but also wash the mind. It's very important.
It's important, so I said it twice.
Today was a difficult day.
It might have been the first time since I was born in this world I found a day to be so difficult.
My last memory today is of Holy Mother's smile that lasted throughout the whole day.
