“Rose! Are you alright?”
“Are you okay to stand up? Please rest a bit more.”
The door opened and two people – one man and one woman – entered. They looked worried because I had gotten up from bed.
“Ehh. I’m already fine now.”
“Maa, Rose? Why are you using that tone?”
The woman approached me in surprise. This person must be my mother.
“Do you still have a fever? You’re speaking differently from usual.”
‘Aah~ differently, well, I do become a villainess in the future, I wonder if it was because I was selfish.’
“…No, my fever has subsided. It’s just, I thought I should start to change a little from now onward, beginning with my speech…”
“Fufu, that’s right, Rose is already five years old. It’s around that age where you start wanting to be an adult.”
“I-is that so. Though, that makes me feel a bit lonely. It’s been fine up until now, it’s family like.”
‘That’s true, it’s better to be relaxed when speaking to family.’
“Okay. I understand!”
I smiled in order to put my parents at ease as they left the room.
