your knee, we will most likely abandon the farm and flee.
That’s all I have to say for the time being.”

Hakeem listened to their conversation and realized that everything he had been wondering about was related.

There were numerous strange things to consider.

It rains more frequently in this area than in others.
It only rains at night.
Rainwater tastes better than freshly tapped spring water, Chana’s health is improving.
It stands to reason that “magic” exists on this farm.

(I have to say something.)

“Serio-san—this farm saved my life.
I’m telling you this because my sister has recovered from a lung disease.
The medicine didn’t work very well, and I was worried that Chana would die soon.
But the water and food provided here have greatly improved her condition.
I am thankful.
I’m not going to say anything to anyone.”

Alesia’s parents hung their heads in silence.
Alesia looked at the walls with distant eyes before opening her mouth.

“If word gets out about this, Isabelle-san, people will probably come to our house, and we won’t be able to stay here.
I really want to use the power of the silk cloth to help people, but I’m not sure how.”

“I understand what you’re afraid of.
So here’s what I’m going to do.
I can keep Alethea safe by claiming this silk cloth.
I, who appear to others to have nothing to do with you, will assist.”

Isabelle’s suggestion to return the favor of fixing her knee pain was listened to seriously by everyone.
Alesia bowed her head toward Isabelle.

“Thank you, Isabelle-san; this silk scarf’s power will not be wasted.”

“Alesia, I would be happy to be of service to you.”


Hakeem thanks her as they return to the rental horse.

“Isabelle, thank you.”

“No, my knee was accidentally healed without my knowledge—this is my way of thanking you—and, since I won’t be around for much longer, I’d like to be useful to someone.”


Alesia’s parents had a lengthy conversation in bed that night.
The rain is getting heavier.
There’s also the issue of the silk cloth.
Alesia’s power may no longer be concealable.

“Even if we can rely on Isabelle-san for the time being, I’m not sure it’s right to keep Alesia’s power hidden… Alesia is a surprisingly strong young girl who wants to help others, isn’t she?”

“Yes, she does.
Thinking back, Alesia was very desperate when she hired Hakeem.

“I was halfway between agreeing and being concerned.
But Alethea had already decided she wanted to help people.
I’m not sure why she feels such a strong desire to help others.”

Serio’s wife gently stroked his cheek.

“You’ve always gone out of your way to protect Alesia.
It’s fine.
Hakeem and Isabelle-san, who was related to Hakeem, were both nice people.”

“Yeah, that’s true.”

“She’s no longer a child, dear.
I believe it is time to observe how she lives her life.”

As they fell asleep, they encouraged each other.
