It had been kind of a weird week, really.
Ritsuko had expected
things to be different in Fusang, but she hadn't really been prepared for what had happened when she arrived. It was the first time she'd lived on her own, although seeing how often her parents were at work it wasn't too much of a change. And the city was so much bigger than where she was from, so much louder and livelier than she was used to. And, well... She'd ordered a catalyst for a Servant online. The seller claimed
it was a one-hundred per cent genuine relic belonging to some famous something or other, but the surprisingly low price had caused Ritsuko to doubt its authenticity. Still, it arrived promptly... And looked a bit different from what was advertised. She wasn't surprised, really, as she had an inkling that the seller was a conman. But still, she wasn't going to waste it, and hey, even if it was
fake she'd apparently get a Servant who just suits her well or something (she hadn't been paying too much attention to the explanation but still).
And then she summoned King Arthur.
And then she found out King Arthur was actually a girl.
And then she found out King Arthur was actually a very pretty
All things considered, this was probably one of the last things she'd expected to happen. Even she'd heard of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table, after all! He... Well, she
was kind of a big deal! It made absolutely no sense how a low ranking mage with a cheap, most likely counterfeit catalyst could've summoned someone like that!
Well... A week had passed. A week with King Arthur.
At the very least, she was easy to get along with. She was overly serious and stubborn at times, yes, but she was also a rather pleasant person... And her seriousness was actually rather cute at times, too. Of course the one thing she'd really
noticed was, well... Her appetite.
How could such a small girl eat so much? It was great to see her enjoying her cooking, but her larder had quickly gotten rather bare. So... Here she was, heading out to the store to restock. Naturally, her Servant... "Arturia"
accompanied her. For one thing, not only did she want to make sure she got food Arturia liked, but well... Whilst her dress was rather pretty, she couldn't really wear it casually. And she was notably smaller than Ritsuko, too. She could've borrowed some of her clothes, but they'd be too baggy on her and a girl like Arturia deserved to wear something that actually fits properly.
"Hmmm... What kind of stuff do you want to wear anyway, Saber?" Ritsuko pondered aloud as they passed by some boutiques. "Then again I bet you'd look good in anything...
