Translator: Darling | Editor: Coming soon…
Grandpa Elvis, Alice, Smith, and Fredrick returned to the living room.
“Looks like Alice has safely secured her courtship with Takeo.”
“So? How was it?”
“It was just like Sir Takeo.”
Alice replied with a smile.
“Hn. His humility is appealing, isn’t it?
‘I want you to be the one that looks for happiness by my side’……….
Fufu, it’s good isn’t it.”
“Yes. It’s nice.”
Grandpa Elvis and Fredrick happily say.
Even though Alice was present.
Her face turned bright red.
‘Wil I also do this someday?’
Takeo knocked on the living room door.
After receiving permission to enter, he opened the door and entered inside.
Grandpa Elvis, Alice, Smith, and Fredrick were seated inside.
Grandpa Elvis was smiling cheerfully.
Alice was blushing slightly.
Smith and Fredrick were smiling.
“……….Sorry for making you worry.”
“Hmm. Takeo, you have a tendency to think a lot.”
“I also believe that but I would like to understand things.
I would regret it if I were to hold prejudices against the other party.
Besides, I like the person then I would like to yield to them a certain level of protection.”
“……….I want to know, about how many people is that?”
“The people who were good to me in this town…….
Other than that I’m not sure yet.
With time, the circle may grow…….”
“Eh? Isn’t it a little small?”
“Young master Smith. I’m not a person that can stretch too far.
People usually have some people that they love……….and some people that they are responsible for.
It depends on the quality, environment, or schooling.
For me, at best, it’s about that much”
Smith didn’t really understand.
“Young master Smith, It would be good if you are different from me who is accepting of very few people.
I tend to overthink a lot.
I tend to be really nice to the people I like or the people that I owe but if it’s an enemy I’m pretty hostile.”
“Is that so? It doesn’t seem that way though?”
“Yes. I started to hide it to an extent once I started working.
Even so, a person’s true nature doesn’t change.
But I’m trying to get a hold of my personality.”
“Hm, is that so?”
Well, everyone does have that as part of their personality.
Looks like it’s stronger in your case Takeo.”
“Thank you for saying that.
Lady Alice, do hold on to my reins tightly.”
……….Will I be able to do it well?”
“I’ll certainly pamper you though, Lady Alice.”
“Ara? Then I’ll gradually become more selfish though?”
“…………It won’t be too different from now right?”
Everyone started laughing.
“That’s right, Lady Alice.”
“Yes, what is it?”
“It’s about the book that I bought at the general store today.”
Alice’s body stiffened in surprise.
“Yes, What about it?”
“That children’s book is a heroic tale about you right? Lady Alice.”
It’s about the war that happened two years ago.”
“I see. Is that so……….it’s a nice story.”
“ Was there something about it?”
“?…………Sir Takeo, you’re weird.”
Alice said and decided to get another book.
Takeo went back to his room.
“Shall we go to sleep?”
With Grandpa Elvis’s words, everyone returned back to their rooms.
‘Looks like I can use magic so let me test some out.’
He thought as he opened the book on his desk.
There was a knock on his door.
Once he gave permission to enter, Alice opened the door and entered inside.
“Sir Takeo, sorry for intruding.”
“Welcome Lady Alice.”
Alice sat down on his bed.
“Sir Takeo, what were you doing?”
“Ah, I was thinking of trying out some magic since I can use it.”
“Don’t overdo it, alright?”
“Understood. Lady Alice, what brings you here?”
She couldn’t tell him about the book.
“I’ll be going to sleep now.
Sir Takeo, please don’t overdo it.”
“Yes, I understand.”
Alice walked towards the door.
Takeo saw her off till the door.
Alice turned around to look at Takeo.
Takeo suddenly kissed her.
He kissed her in front of his door and saw her off till the corridor.
Alice replied with a red face.
Takeo said ‘see you’ and closed his door.
Looks like she would see a sweet dream tonight.
Alice cheerfully returned to her room.
