“La la la~”
Noah looked at the cheerful girl skipping in front of him and the calm girl walking by her side. He bitterly laughed.
“I say, Enju, Kayo, what are you two doing following me here?”
Enju grabbed Kayo’s hand and she took another leap forward as she cheered out loud.
“I tagged along to play!”
“Isn’t this just nice?”
Kayo looked forward as she responded like a tiny adult.
“It’s rare to see Guild Master going window-shopping when the second talk isn’t over just yet, I don’t see why we can’t go with you though?”
“I am cool with this.”
“But, I will be meeting up with another person in a short while.”
“Just introduce her to us.”
Kayo said with a face that said “there’s no issue here’.
“I remember Guild Master saying stuff about how even kids like us should have the right to make friends with others, right?”
“I did say that sure.”
Noah’s lip twitched.
“But, I feel like I should have added an asterisk for a situation like this.”
“Stop being such a stick in the mud.”
Enju twirled around, she’s the one with the highest excitement level here.
“The more the merrier, I don’t mind at all.”
“I am not asking if you girls mind.”
“I am just worried if the other party would mind.”
“We already came all the way here. Does Guild Master want us to go back?”
Kayo glanced at Noah.
“We are only kids.”
“So you did hear the phone call.”
Noah felt like he had his hands tied, he could only roll along.
“Since you two are coming along, remember to drop the Guild Master title, don’t reveal my true identity.”
Kayo responded. She’s just happy she got what she wanted.
“We will take note of this.”
Enju tilted her head. She looked like a chipmunk who is chewing on a nut, totally cute.
“What should we call you then?”
“Well, about that.”
Noah rubbed his head.
“I don’t have an idea, you girls just think of something.”
Kayo and Enju’s eyes lit up immediately.
Enju called out.
Noah shut her down in an instant.
“Do you want me to be treated like a human scum?!”
Noah wanted to give her tiny head a good knocking.
Enju called out.
“How is that different from the first one?!”
Noah raised his voice with them.
“Now you girls definitely want me to be treated like human trash!”
Noah’s leg weakened.
“Why can’t you girls just call me something normal?!”
Enju and Kayo got kicks out of using various embarrassing terms of endearment to test Noah’s bottom line.
Noah might have all the love in the world for them but he felt like locking them up in a dark room so they can properly reflect on their actions.
The trio finally arrived at their destination.
Noah immediately identified the girl who is dozing off.
She didn’t wear a sloppy pajama this time. She wore a long green and black dress. She also had a small coat to cover herself. Her tidy platinum blonde hair lit up under the warm glow of the sunlight.
Alas, Tina still looked like she needed more sleep. It looked like she didn’t get a single wink of sleep last night. Her eyelids quivered as they struggled to stay open. Her head was also bobbing up and down. More like, she’s probably sleeping while standing.
Noah placed his face to his palm.
“This girl, did she really stay up playing games and watching shows?”
Enju and Kayo got close to Tina, the two examined Tina after exchanging a look.
“Ohhh! She mastered the same skill as Rentaro, she can sleep while standing.”
“I heard tales about this kind of people but this is the first time I saw a real-life case.”
“Won’t she fall down like this?”
“I don’t know, Enju should poke her and see if she falls.”
Enju looked like she wanted to do just that but Noah stopped her.
“You two, this is very rude to someone you just met.”
Tina slowly lifted her head up after hearing Noah’s voice. She rubbed her eyes and she gave him a radiant smile.
“Good morning, Onii-san, nice weather we have, isn’t it? It feels so invigorating.”
Noah, Kayo, and Enju said at the same time. They didn’t even hesitate.
Tina finally noticed the two extras. She stopped for a second before she asked.
“Did Onii-san kidnap two girls on the way here?”
“I don’t know why you arrived at the conclusion. What is your brain made of anyway?”
Noah riffed on her.
“Plus, I don’t have the ability to abduct girls, okay?”
Enju and Kayo threw him a weird gaze.
What about the heaps of kids back at the headquarters of Fairy Tail?
If Mira and Lisanna were here, they would also retort at the same time.
Mira and Lisanna were dragged into Fairy Tail by Noah when they were young.
Noah rubbed both Kayo and Enju’s head, he pushed them forward.
“Now, you two, introduce yourselves.”
“I’m Aihara Enju.”
Enju raised an arm energetically and she hugged Noah’s arm.
“I’m his fiancee, you know?”
Noah almost planted his face into the ground, he staggered for a moment.
This isn’t the end.
“I am Senju Kayo.”
Kayo used her usual cold face to introduce herself. Then, she hugged Noah’s other arm.
“I am also his fiancee.”
Noah looked up at the sky, he gave up trying to explain himself.
Tina’s mouth was slightly agape with shock. She saw Enju and Kayo’s happy faces and she giggled.
“Onii-san is so incredible.”
“What makes you say that?”
Noah weakly asked.
“This is just another proof of Onii-san’s warmth.”
Tina still looked sleep but her smile was as genuine as they came.
“Without a truly warm and soft heart, I find it hard to believe that so many kids would flock to you.”
Enju nodded vigorously. She bounced over to Tina and she slapped her hands onto Tina’s shoulder.
“Alright, I’ve made up my mind, you’re my friend from now on!”
Tina was stunned. She looked like she wasn’t expecting a friend request out of anywhere.
“I will call you Tina from now on!”
Enju patted her flat chest and she snorted with pride.
“Come, let me take you window-shopping!”
Enju pulled Tina who wasn’t prepared and she ran away leaving only giggles in her wake.
Noah and Kayo chased after them.
The four-person group disappeared into the crowd with giggles and laughter.
