I knocked on the entrance to his study. Albert-san, who was already inside, opened the door for us. Allen and I entered the room to find my father at war with a pile of documents.
I'm really sorry for disturbing your work~ But I wanted to ask about the pet as soon as possible!
“What’s wrong Rose?”
“…Well, you see…Father, I have a request!”
"A request? You haven't asked me for anything since that fever. I'm so happy! Well then, what do you wish for?"
I'm grateful for the fever because I'd learned about the reincarnation. It wouldn't have surprised me if prior to that I'd been a selfish and demanding child.
“…Well, um…for my sixth birthday, I would like a pet!”
I'll tell him boldly. I'm pretty sure that my doting father won't refuse, but in my previous life, I was someone that relied entirely on myself. For that reason, making requests like this did not come easy to me.
“Yes! I want a cat or dog. I promise to take care of them properly.”
"Please~" I added, looking at him cutely with upturned eyes. Father fell over abruptly.
“albert! M-my daughter!!"
"Aa~ Milady is truly lovely."
Father and Albert-san came over and patted my head.
“Of course, I’ll get one for you! Rose, I’ll get you any present that you wish for! Look forward to your birthday.”
“Father, thank you. I’m so happy! I love you!”
“Is that so! I love Rose as well! I’ll prepare an unparalleled pet for you!”
… Unparalleled? What does that mean? Well, it’s fine as long as I get a pet! I’m looking forward to it~
If only I'd paid a little more attention to the word 'unparalleled' at that time, then my actual birthday might not have come as such a surprise. The only thing on my mind then was that I’d be able to raise a pet and play with it to my heart's content.
"Isn't that great, Rose-sama?"
"Yeah! Let's take care of it together Allen."
