when you're a creature that's both human and fae so while your thought processes let you understand human emotions you still process said emotions like a fae ultimately rendering your mentality and understanding of the world similar to that of a child because you cannot truly empathize yet you still do feel emotions and to solve this conundrum of whether or not you will ultimately understand humans you decide to purchase a human under the pretense of marriage and apprenticeship simply as an opportunity to study and live by a human up close but the human you bought is mega ultra super traumatized by her own life experiences also rendering her devoid of her own humanity meaning that both of you actually share the same mindset when it comes to understanding others and yourselves and that leads to an incredibly unhealthy codependence because she is determined to stay by your side as long as you call her family with no regard to her own safety while the idea of someone staying by your side who considers you family is a new and pleasant feeling but you cannot name the emotions themselves and as a result you promise to teach each other how to live as humans but since she is on limited time you don't care what lines you will cross to keep her alive which makes her reject you and despite all this even with the queen of the fae offering you a home you reject it because while humans have always feared you it was also always human who accepted you and to live properly by her side so that she will accept you once again you decide to change and rethink your views because while you may love like a fae a humans greatest ability is to change so as a composite that ability to change must be available to you the same way it was available to her and after all that she scolds you for trying to do things without her because she knows you get lonely
when you're a horribly traumatized human who hasn’t been able to move on from the abandonment of your father and the suicide of your mother after she tried to kill you so you sell yourself into slavery uncaring of whether you live or die because you consider yourself disposable and figure that someone may as well get some use out of you but then this giant fae manchild purchases you and suddenly gives you a home and acceptance you had never felt before which leaves you horribly unequipped to the feeling of safety which makes you throw yourself at every problem you encounter regardless of how grievously injured you get but you continue to strive because you considered yourself fine with simply being called family but as time goes on you become attached to all the wonderful new people who are loving and supporting of you yet you cannot move past your suffering leaving the task of helping you process your emotions to a dragon you were envious of because he died peacefully to tell you that you are free of your past and that you can now grow on your own in a world full of people who love you and yet despite all that you eventually learn that the fae manchild was willing to kill one of your few friends because he could not understand jealousy but knew it would make you hate him and you realize that both of you share the same mentality of feeling worthless to the world around you despite all the people who care about you so you leave him to try and once again resolve things on your own but ultimately reunite with him when he helps you give a wandering immortal a peaceful rest symbolically putting a rest to your own suffering and finally moving on because you’ve understood for the longest time that all the suffering in the world is never an excuse to hurt other people and the wandering immortal needed to understand that to move on from their own pain and after all this you have to scold your husband because he’s an idiot who much like you tries to do things on his own regardless of how it hurts him
when you’re just a grandpa watching these two kids fumble around their own feelings while also making sure they don't get themselves killed

This story took place shortly before Cartaphilus fell asleep and Chise enrolled in The College. Having received the invitation from The College, Chise and Elias had begun to prepare themselves anxiously. In the midst of that, Spriggan came to visit them while bringing along an eerie horse.
“The ghost hunting troops have started behaving strangely,” he said.
―― Having moved from London, a normal boy named Gabriel was bored out of his mind due to his own circumstances, the separation from his friends, and the unfamiliar land.
At that time he looked out the window, seeking for an escape. There was a purple mist that he saw in a flash. He left the house to pursue it. To the world where the boy shouldn’t normally walk into, his story behind the thick veil in which magi lived began.
