Autodoll wa Kuchita Sekai de Yume wo Miru - chapter 44
“”Marriage ＆ Shi-chan’s birthday party!””
Lydia and Yuuyami declared through the microphone.
The two wearing a pure-white wedding dresses, and were delightfully smiling.
Both Lydia and Yuuyami had their hair set, so they looked more mature than usual.
The library, decorated with a numerous flowers, having a pleasant fragrant scent.
Bookshelves, stairs, pillars and so forth, are illuminated and sparkling.
“Love birds, as usual.”
Said Rapha in a low voice, while applauding.
Rapha’s garments usually changeless. A black fluttering Gothic Lolita outfit and Rubber Sole1 of the same colour.
“Love birds? Not in the database.”
Ohan, standing next to Rapha, said so.
Ohan – the AD for military use with an uncovered skeleton, although he strong and stylish, ruthless at times.
“No, I’m really happy. Lydia was taken away.”
Hinagiku had already drank six glasses of champagne and had her face bright red.
Hinagiku’s attire was a deep crimson party dress, the train of the skirt long enough to be in contact with the floor.
As well as her hair, it wasn’t tied up casually, she let it down today. Moreover, it was wrapped around from the middle.
“Hina-tan-, has an Apricot-. Hey-, Hina-tan, Apricot and Hina-tan should also get married, you know-?”
Apricot entwined her arm around Hinagiku’s. Given that Hinagiku is tottering, Apricot decided it would be better to support her.
Apricot wore a maid outfit, which is a uniform of LM series.
Not because she has a lingering attachment to LM series. This is since Hinagiku took a liking to the maid outfit.
“Damn, I’m the only one left alone, huh?”
Noah said during performing a wheelie and jack-knife2 in a row.
High tension expressed with a whole body.
Noah’s frames were polished to shiny finish and looked similar to the mirror.
“To be honest, the marriage itself was earlier!”
Lydia uttered lively.
“That’s right. I proposed Lydia in the bath and received the answer.”
Mm-hmm, Yuuyami said while nodding.
Given that Lydia and Yuuyami are ruling in this world, if they say they got married, that is the official marriage.
“Uh-huh. Well, now we have a child as well, so we wanted to hold a celebration party.”
“Yes. Actually, Lydia simply wished to hold a party.”
“I thought that was the case.”
Rapha lightly shrugged her shoulders.
“Party is splendid. I like the bustle.”
Lonely Hinagiku elevate the glass and slightly shook it.
“So? Where is Lydiyami’s child?”
Noah shook the handlebar from side to side. As an expression of restlessly looking around.
“Is Noah the type who without warning eats a main dish?”
“Ooh. Of course, Lydiko. You should eat delicious food first. Well, I can live with nothing but a Power Cell.”
“No, it’s not right. This is a fixed rule, the delicious things should be kept until the final.”
Rapha took a one step closer to Noah.
Noah put the motor to reversed gear and moved backwards a little.
“Why are you distancing?”
“…No, for no reason.”
Noah turned the gaze― the headlights sideways.
“Well, isn’t it fine?”
After saying that, Hinagiku exchanged a passionate kiss with Apricot.
Rapha who saw it,
“Th, this sort of conduct, in front of her daughter, it’s too much!!”
scolded her with a flushed face.
Yuuyami seeing a kiss of Hinagiku and Apricot, somehow wished to compete, and gave to Lydia a sudden kiss.
Rapha noticed the act of Yuuyami,
“Over here, over there, nothing but shameless love birds, waaaa!”
while shouting, clung to Ohan’s leg and closed shut her eyes tightly.
“Damn, I envy them every time I see it! Please introduce Lydiyami-san’s child as soon as possible! I’ll make her my bride!”
“Eh? It’s no good?”
“Mama does not permit.”
Lydia and Yuuyami said gravely.
Noah retreated a little, once again.
“All right, show me your granddaughter’s nudity soon.”
“They wouldn’t be naked! They would wear clothes! Also, Hinagiku, don’t confine our child!”
“And since we haven’t decide on the gender3, if you see they naked it’s all smooth, you know?”
“Why, smooth? If that’s the case, I’m not interested.”
In one gulp Hinagiku drained the glass of its content, and headed towards the table to pick a new one.
“Hina-tan, you are drinking too much-.”
Apricot, who supports Hinagiku, also went to the table together with her.
“Mama-Hina is really, example of a wasted adult…”
Rapha sighed in disgust.
“Truly…” Lydia also sighed. “But, regain your mind, Shi-chan! Come here-!”
Lydia turns her gaze to the bookshelves.
From behind of bookshelves, Shii popped out a face.
By appearance the age is about the same as Rapha, hair is a tawny shortcut. Lydia and Yuuyami adjusted it to length which could use both boys and girls.
Shii’s eyes were big and cute, the emphasis was on cuteness rather than beautifully moulding entire face.
Shii moved briskly with a small steps from bookshelves to the side of Lydia and Yuuyami.
Shii’s garments is a white long-sleeved tee-shirt, denim overall. Clothing is also something that both boys and girls can wear.
Shii grabbed the hem of Lydia’s dress with left hand and the train of Yuuyami’s dress with right hand.
“N… nice to meet you… desu.”
While looking down a little, said so looking bashful.
Rapha widely opened eyes in a surprised manner.
“She so charming that I’d never think of her as Lydiyami’s child! I want you to be my bride after all!”
“I am… Shii desu. It is a tentative name, desu. I can not, be your wife, desu.”
Shii made a self-introduction and Lydia stroked Shii’s head.
When Lydia finished brushing it, as following, Yuuyami stroked Shii’s hair.
“Hmm. Cute,” says Hinagiku. “Be a girl. And then get naked.”
Hinagiku cannot stand on her own and are completely supported by Apricot.
“And then, we will fulfil a dream of multi-person’s play, Hina-tan!”
Apricot said in a high spirits.
“No, I won’t permit it,” Yuuyami said seriously.
“That’s right-,” says Lydia. “Someday Shii will get conscious, and will flirt with their loved one-.”
“There is no guarantee it wouldn’t be me!”
“Eeh―!?” exclaim Apricot. “That’s no good, Hina-tan! Even though extramarital sex is good, I don’t really like it-!”
“Alright, I love you, Apricot.”
Chu―, Hinagiku kissing Apricot again.
“Hinagiku is fine with anyone, after all.”
Lydia said a little stuffy.
“Don’t worry Lydia. Lydia has me. There’s no problem. Shall we compete them-.”
Yuuyami kissed Lydia once again. Unlike Hinagiku, it’s a light kiss that just touches their lips.
Shii was looking at the pair of mothers with a sparkling eyes.
Five years later.
Indifferently, Shii was in process of creating specifications for the new navigation system to be installed on motorcycle.
Shii has intelligence and a sense of humour.
However, Shii wasn’t conscious. In other words, Shii was an ordinary AD.
In concise, a hollow shell that just works according to program. The same goes for Ohan, Apricot and Noah.
The difference between Shii and other kinds of AD – quality of the parts that composing a body, and programs.
Shii has a body that brings together best of technologies and possess flawless sophisticated programming and a database. Physically, with a higher efficiency than Yuuyami, right from the beginning.
“Hey, listen,” Lydia addressing Shii.
Shii kept working at the computer and asked a question in return: “What is wrong mama-Lydi?”
“I have a new mission. Can you do it?”
“I’m, still in the middle of the mission, you know, desu.”
“You can do this mission later. Please, give a priority to the new one.”
Yuuyami set a degree of relative priority.
Shii able to decide the priority by themself, however as long as creators, Lydia and Yuuyami, exist, they will give a priority to their orders.
“I understood, mama-Yuu.”
“Incidentally, collect a sample of vegetation,” asks Lydia. “I sent a data to Shii’s tablet, so check it and execute.”
Hearing Lydia’s words, Shii picked up the tablet from the computer desk with her left hand.
“I am off.”
Shii immediately began arrangements.
Shii fixed Noah’s speed at one hundred4 kilometers per hour, and indifferently headed for the destination.
Naturally, there’s nothing they are thinking about, while going against the wind at speed of one hundred. Nor experiencing.
While seeing the world that resembles a wasteland, Shii didn’t feel any emotion.
However, it is possible for them to behave as if they have emotions.
Nevertheless, Shii doesn’t stimulate anything. Neither library, garage, Maker Factory nor a Satellite Launching Institution have moved Shii’s heart.
There is no quale in Shii. They can’t feel a texture of materials.
“Yoo, let’s talk about something, ‘kay.”
“All right. What do you what to talk about?”
Shii said while tilting the head.
“Isn’t Rapha scary?”
“Aunt Rapha? She is very kind, you know, desu.”
“Is that so-. She is not kind to me at all.”
“Why is it, desu?”
“It seems because riding me she feels poor. More than that, Shi-chan, why are you attach『Desu』at the end of each phrase? Is it actually a ＤＥＡＴＨ?”
“It’s not… I’m simply talking politely, you know-.”
“I see. I think you are using it a little wrong, well, it’s okay. To each person, each bike and each AD, their own, huh.”
The two laughed lightly, and after that enjoyed a silent driving for a while.
Destinated place,” said Noah.
“We have arrived, desu.”
“Ooh,” Noah slows down while saying so.
After Noah ceased completely, Shii got off.
Then, as planned, take a sample of the plant.
At the moment when Shii touched the plant. A tiny purple flower.
They couldn’t comprehend a reason of intending to collect it firstly. There was no deep meaning, they thought. Only tried to pick it since it was at the place within reach.
Some sort of emotion was born in Shii.
Shii doesn’t understand that emotion. Shii doesn’t even know if it’s an emotion, in the first place.
“…It’s beautiful, desu.”
spontaneously, they assemble such words.
At that moment,
a drop of water falls from the sky― that kind of image born inside of Shii.
A water droplet fell to the water surface and invoke a ripple.
At that moment, at that instant, Shii gained consciousness.
They learned, a consciousness had sprung up.
All kinds of qualia filled Shii, a dynamic zombie Shii was no longer.
Recognising that, Shii evoke a communication device inside of the body online.
Approximately five seconds later, two windows appear in the corner of visual field.
The windows projected Yuuyami and Lydia. One window for each person.
“What happened? A problem occurred? Need a help?”
Lydia bent her neck.
Seeing the gesture, Shii had a thought. How cute this person is! It’s absolutely adorable, as if she was loved by the universe.
“I guess it’s not a big problem, inasmuch as it doesn’t have a rescue signal, right? Nevertheless, if you need us, we shall head towards, immediately.”
IN comparison to Shii, Yuuyami is an old type of Autodoll. Even a communication device isn’t built in. Thus, Yuuyami talking to Shii via the tablet, just like Lydia.
However, regarding this Yuuyami, Shii sensed a beauty that dazzled the visual sensor, as well as a great tenderness.
“Even though it’s a big problem-, I don’t need a rescuing, you know-.”5
Now, they perceived their own type of voice for the first time. And judged that it wasn’t bad.
“A big problem?” Lydia tilts her head to the other side.
“However rescuing is unnecessary? What happened?” Yuuyami also inclined her head.
“I think, I love both of you.”
Shii spread both of her arms. Naturally, the gesture is not transmitted to them.
Silence fell for a moment.
Lydia and Yuuyami were trying to comprehend Shii’s words.
Since the time Shii was born, they have never expressed a love towards them.
Consequently, it without a doubt an unforeseen statement for the pair.
“That’s why-,” got impatient, Shii speaks to them first. “I’m conscious of it! You know, desu!”
When they heard Shii’s remark, Lydia and Yuuyami jumped from the windows.
“Really!?” “Is that truth!?”
The words of the two overlapped.
“I don’t have a subroutine to lie.”
When Shii said so, the pair clapped their hands with a brimming smiles.
It has been five years since they booted up Shii.
And finally the consciousness, segregated from『That』, reached the ground.
Yuuyami, who was being alone, found Lydia, they became a couple, created a child afterwards, and they became a trinity.
A tale of the certain period has ended; today the prologue is finished.
Creators dreams in a decaying world.
One day in the bath, Lydia wishes to have a beautiful dream, that would last forever.
