Takeo and Alice reached the Elvis mansion.
Fredrick was waiting at the entranceway.
“Welcome back. Lady Alice, Sir Takeo.”
“We’re back Fredrick.”
“Mr. Fredrick, thank you for all your work. We’ve returned.”
“You’ve come a little earlier than I expected.”
“Yes, because we need to discuss something with Grandfather.”
“Is that so?”
“Yes. By the way, where is Grandfather?”
“He’s in the living room, waiting for both of you.”
“Then let’s go to the living room.
Fredrick, will you please come too?”
“Alice and Takeo headed to the living room.
Fredrick knocked on the living room door.
Once he received permission to enter, he opened the door and entered the room.
“Lord, Lady Alice, and Sir Takeo have returned.”
Alice and Takeo entered the room.
“Grandfather, we’re back.”
“Mr. Elvis, we’ve returned.”
“Alice, Takeo, welcome.
……………..Aren’t you a little early?”
Grandpa Elvis said regretfully.
“Why do you look for regretful?”
Alice shot at Grandpa Elvis.
“No……….it was the long-awaited date after all………….
Even the 9 o clock bell has just barely rung…………..
After it becomes a little darker……….heart racing, exciting things can take place. Wouldn’t that be good?……….”
Takeo was standing diagonally behind Alice, therefore he couldn’t see her expression.
Grandpa Elvis let out a ‘Hi!’ sound.
Takeo couldn’t see her expression but he could imagine it.
Takeo thought that…………he should just ignore it.
“So, this is the ring?”
Mr. Elvis took her hand and gazed at the ring.
Alice gave the background story.
“Hmm, I didn’t know about the ‘Prestige’ magic. “
“Yes. I didn’t know about it either till the shop assistant explained.”
“If we inform this to the Royal Capital, then in the worst case, you’ll be asked to lose your finger.
Moreover, they’ll end up doing something bad to that shop assistant as well.
But according to your story earlier, that shop clerk seems to be super-elite.”
Takeo nonchalantly said.
“Takeo, you don’t look too nervous?
Aren’t you afraid?”
“No, I’m extremely scared.
Lady Alice might be fine but I’m sure a commoner like me will certainly his finger.”
“But you’re not really afraid are you?”
“Yes, worst case, I’ll leave the house.”
Alice was shocked.
“At that time, will I be able to rent a house in front of the mansion? That’s what I’m wondering.”
“Hmm, won’t you go far away?”
“If I go far, I’ll be caught easily right?
That’s why it makes sense to remain close and besides, I don’t want to create hostility between us and leave the house.
If someone were to come here to interrogate us, I can always hide, and then it shouldn’t be a problem anymore right?”
“That’s right. Alice, Takeo. I’ll protect you.”
Alice and Takeo replied.
“Then, what do you think Takeo?”
“Is there a person from the Royal family that you are close to?
If there is, we can honestly tell that person that ;
[Lady Alice found a strange box. When she played around with it a little bit, she found rings inside.
Since it seemed interesting, she put one on and couldn’t take it off.
When she looked closely at the other one, she found that it had the royal coat of arms engraved on it and she was troubled.]
What is this ring?
After disclosing this to the person form the royal family that you care close to, that person can move around freely and find out something.”
“Hmmmm………..shall we ask Layla?”
“Lady Alice, you have a sister?”
“Yes. She’s married and lives in the Royal Capital.”
“Yes. Basically I’ll inform her of what Takeo just said.
I’ll write the address and endorsement.
Let’s see how things turn out from there.
Takeo, check out the room where you’ll take refuge.”
“I’ll write the letter to elder sister Layla.”
Alice returned back to her room.
“Fredrick, send a messenger to Layla.
Ask Harold to send 2 or 3 people.”
Fredrick left the room and returned shortly.
“Since Lady Alice isn’t here, I have some confidential information to report to you.”
“While we were out, Lady Alice and I were separated for a few minutes.
At that time, a Platoon leader from town, named Thomas called out to me.”
“Yes, I’m listening.”
“So the information that I want to relay to you is that I’m supposed to meet the Platoon Leader at the soldier station near the castle gate to explain my relationship with Lady Alice.”
“So Alice will be at the mansion?”
“Yes. It was a command……….to come alone.”
“Takeo, what will you do?”
“I agreed to go so I’ll go.
“I’m prepared to have a bruised face when I return so if at that time I could be treated……..”
“So were you asked to relay this to me?”
“Yes. I explained to him that you are my employer so I need to inform you about my whereabouts.
But still, will I still be alive……..”
“Hmm. Don’t be found out by Alice.”
“Then I’ll take my stuff and go to my room for a bit.
“Yes, what is it?”
“I bought a smoke pipe, is it alright if I smoke in my room?”
“Yes, it is.”
“Then, I’ll see you later.”
With that Takeo left the living room.
