Chapter 5: Indirect Kiss
After that, the sun was setting as Lia and I cleaned up the inside of the house.
By the time we’d finished cleaning it was time for dinner.
I say that, but in this kind of situation I can’t afford to say such a luxurious thing.
Lia recommended that I get some dried meat out of the food storage, I then proceeded to have a simple dinner.
「Aren’t you going to have dinner?」
I called out to Lia who was admirably standing watch at the cave’s entrance.
「…..there’s only so much food in storage. Please wait and I’ll find an opportunity to go hunting very soon alright?」
As expected that’s what it was.
It’s already night and suddenly she says 「I’m going hunting」 or something like that, I think that our food situation is not very good.
Of course this kind of action is dangerous so I’m going to put a stop to it as quick as I can.
「Let’s change the question. If you skip dinner won’t you be hungry?」
「You need not worry yourself. I believe that I can go around 3 days without eating and I won’t die. And one way or another, all there is to eat are those scraps of dried meat you have…..for me to eat them would be…..」
「Then here. Eat this.」
Then I held out the dried meat that I hadn’t yet finished for dinner.
It was the right idea not to finish it all off.
I had thought that it would be possible that Lia would go without eating dinner for my sake.
「I-I can’t possibly receive such a thing! Even under these circumstances I’m ashamed to only be able to offer you such a crude meal……」
「No no. If Lia is hungry and enemies attack then won’t it be even more troublesome?」
After a couple times trying to convince Lia, finally she reluctantly assented.
Then, right before my eyes, Lia took a bite out of the dried meat.
—–Then…something strange happened.
All of a sudden Lia let out some kind of weirdly sexy voice.
「Hey! Are you ok?!」
For some unknown reason Lia’s body started to shine and glow in the night.
「Amazing…! This is the Human race’s. No…..Master’s power!」
Seems like there was nothing for me to worry about.
Now that I looked carefully the flushed cheeks that I’d taken for 「Pain」 was instead an 「it feels so good」 expression.
「Thank you very much. Thanks to Master my magic power was able to rapidly evolve.」
「……Thanks to me?」
「Most likely the food that Master gave me had some of your saliva on it. The saliva that Master has given me is the most delicious meal I’ve ever eaten up until now.」
So in essence, by depending on our indirect kiss Lia was able to power up or something I guess?
I suppose that since one strand of hair allows them to power up, then the saliva of a living Human would have an immediate effect.
「It appears that my earlier hunger has been lessened significantly! Now I don’t even need to eat any dinner!」
It looks like in this world anything goes when you’re talking about the power of Humans.
I have lots of things I’d like to say in response to this, but Lia’s stomach has been settled so I decided that everything turned out pretty alright.
