A week was about to pass when the servants gathered in the house that Alise had purchased.
”I’m Rogel, I’m the House Butler of the House of Bate,”
With that said, the swallow-tailed, white-haired, elderly man bowed neatly.
As expected of someone introduced by the marquis.
You could see that he was an experienced man who was proficient at his job.
He must be in his early 60s.
“I’m the head maid, my name is Cecile.”
Her neatly stretched silver hair was pulled back into a ponytail and she was dressed in a classic black and white maid’s outfit.
This one, too, bowed beautifully.
She had flaming red eyes and white skin.
She was definitely a beauty.
Her age was probably in her early twenties.
There were about two other maids besides Cecil.
They each bowed when they said their names.
“I’m Leon, the head chef. It’s a pleasure to meet you.”
He took off his Chef hat and bowed deeply to Alise.
“Ladies and gentlemen, it’s a pleasure to meet you.”
Alise also bowed lightly.
“Well then, let’s get to work.”
Under Rogel’s direction, they each began to work on their assigned tasks.
This butler must be very capable, after all.
”Excuse me, my lady, I have a letter from the Marquis.”
With that, Rogel handed her a letter.
“Thank you very much,”
She took out a letter from within the opening of the wax seal of the Marquis’ family crest.
It stated that he had sent his capable servants and that they should be able to help her.
When she finished reading it, Alise put the letter back.
“Hmm? What’s this ……”
Alise sensed the faintest hint of something non-human outside the mansion.
“Miss, I’ll go check it.”
When Alise was about to go outside to check on the situation, she was approached by Cecile from behind.
(There’s no way she sensed that)
She couldn’t say it, but she felt it in her heart.
After all, even Alise could only feel it faintly.
There was no way an ordinary person could sense it.
“Miss, I didn’t see anything unusual, but this was what I found.”
“This is …….”
Cecile handed her what looked like a translucent red stone.
“I sense a magical power that is not human.”
“What? How do you know?”
Alise also sensed it was something non-human.
”I’m somewhat confident in my magic.”
“You’re not just a maid.. are you?”
Alise tried to use her magic to see Cecile’s mana flow, essence, like the amount of magic she had, but she was easily jammed.
“Do you understand?”
“You’ve been jamming my magic, haven’t you?”
“Yes, I am a combat maid, madame.”
A combat maid, that is, a maid with a specialization in combat skills.
