Translator: NovelMultiverse | Editor: NovelMultiverse
Breakfast was over and the tea time after breakfast was over as well.
Alice and Takeo headed to the yard.
“Shall we continue from yesterday?”
“Yes, Sir Takeo, we’ll practice the same thing as yesterday and also learn how to turn.”
A servant brought a horse with a saddle on it.
It was yesterday’s horse. Takeo went closer to it in order to continue where he left off yesterday.
The horse bit Takeo’s shoulder.
Takeo was surprised and he jumped back.
What was that!!???
Takeo’s body became very stiff and he couldn’t move.
“Sir Takeo, weren’t you missing that horse?”
Alice said while laughing.
“I was surprised though?”
“Yes, Sir Takeo you flew back so fast and so far~
Was it that bad?”
“It was completely out of my expectations.
I never thought that horses bite.”
“They are living beings. They’ll be mischievous.”
“Is that so………
Let’s start with yesterday’s review.”
He began to ride the horse.
First he got on > went forward > Stopped > got off.
He repeated the same five times.
“That was good.
Then let’s turn to the left next.
While walking forward, lightly shift your weight to your left and pull the bridle on the left side lightly.”
Takeo did as he was told.
He got on > went forward > turned to the left > stopped > got off.
“We’ll turn to the right next.
It’s the exact opposite of earlier.”
Takeo did as he was told.
He got on > went forward > turned to the right > stopped > got off.
“I did manager……..to do it……..right?”
Takeo hesitantly asked Alice.
“Yes, you did.
……………….Now that you have the basics, let’s go back and forth to the castle gate.”
“Yes, since you are able to make it walk forward, it will be fine.
You won’t improve if you remain in front of the stables forever right?
Practice is the best.”
“Please prepare a horse for me as well.”
Alice asked the servant and he brought a horse for her.
Alice rode with ease.
“Yosh……….hn? Sir Takeo, what happened? You’re staring at me.”
“You’re dashing when you ride……….is what I was thinking…………..I’ll fall in love with you.”
“Because of something like this?”
“I realized once again that I’m a lucky guy.”
“That’s right, you’re a happy guy since I’m your fiancé.
Shall we go to the castle gate then?
If something happens then don’t panic and stop the horse okay? That way it will be fine.”
Takeo began to ride.
Takeo and Alice walked the horse and soon reached the castle gate.
Takeo forgot to kick the horse during the journey and the horse stopped but nothing else happened.
“……………….By the way, you’re speaking, did you expect something to happen?”
“No………..I didn’t expect anything other than………
The horse suddenly starting to run or bounce?”
Alice replied to Takeo’s question with a smile.
“………….Both of them are dangerous though?”
“Yes, it’s good that nothing happened.
Not that we’re all the way here, shall we run in the training ground for a while?”
“…………….I think I just heard something that I haven’t been taught?”
“The method is just an extension of the basics.
Alice began to explain and clarify Takeo’s inhibitions.
Takeo was a little concerned but he fully listened to her instructions.
He imagined that he would run the horse desperately without thinking of anything.
Alice muttered once again.
Takeo was at the edge of the training ground.
He had made the horse run > stop > run again > turn > stop again.
He repeated this several times.
……………..Well, he did understand her feelings but………..did she want him to make mistakes so quickly?
After hearing Alice’s words, he decided to become more careful.
“Lady Alice, let’s take a break.”
“Yes, got it.”
Takeo and Alice hang the reins on a nearby tree and sat down at the base of a tree.
Takeo took out his tea set from his backpack and made tea for Alice.
“Here, Lady Alice.”
He poured it into a cup and handed it over to Alice.
Alice thanked him as she accepted the tea.
“Fuu………. I’m healed.”
“It feels good to drink tea outside.”
Takeo had some tea and gave his impressions.
Alice gets up and sits on Takeo’s lap.
She surrendered her body to Takeo and he hugged her after placing his cup on the side.
“…………….Lady Alice, are you concerned since I didn’t make any mistakes?”
“………………Sir Takeo, you’re doing everything too well.
I think it’s better if you were to make smaller mistakes now than have something big happen later.”
“Yes, I understand your feelings Lady Alice…………but I’m just trying to do my best right now.
Well, I’m just a small guy so I’m just following instructions hence I’m not making any mistakes.
…………Having the horse suddenly break into a run will usually happen if someone were to hit it or stab it or something right?
I read it in a book a long time ago that horses react to sudden stimulus.”
“Yes, that’s right.
That’s why I’ve asked for a calm horse for you but you must try riding other kinds of horses as well……..
But you’re not relaxed right now……….it’s better for you to relax.”
“You’re asking for the impossible…………. I’m holding back since it seems impossible.
I’m unconsciously doing it.”
Takeo could only smile at Alice’s request.
“Shall we go back to the mansion?”
Alice says but she still doesn’t get off.
“What you’re saying is different than what you’re doing though?”
“Ehehe~ Surprisingly it’s comfortable here.”
“You’re welcome anytime.”
Hearing Takeo’s words, Alice gets up to go and take the reins.
Takeo also stands up, lightly rinses the cups and tea set with water, puts it in his backpack, and carried it on his back.
He then goes to Alice and takes the reins.
“Let’s go back to the mansion.”
They got on the horses and started walking to the castle gate.
An emergency message had arrived at the Elvis household as Alice and Takeo were preparing to return.
Grandpa Elvis checked it’s contents and said.
”……………What is that person doing……………”
He held his head.
