Chapter 69

Ah, Yes


 

At the time when we return to the party hall, we can’t find Tre and Aura here.

 

“…… Ha………”

 

But I still not losing my hope yet.

 

Perhaps, they get tired after dancing, then decided to walk around inside the castle like us.

 

“…… Heal…………. Heal……”

 

I searched for the two of them and repeatedly applied recovery magic to myself several times.

 

……I know that the possibility they are here is low.

 

Because, the maid in this hall, keep unpleasantly looking at me.

 

Maybe the meaning of that gaze is…….

 

However, I had no choice except to bet on such a wish.

 

“………… Heal…… Hah………”

 

I can hear my footsteps, there’s no one in the corridor.

 

“Heeaaal!!”

 

And then, the impatience is taking over me, there’s only a sound from my yelling, echoing inside the long corridor –.

 

 

“……”

 

For how long have I been running?

 

After I running around the castle while applying recovery magic, finally, I came back to the party hall.

 

“……”

 

I walking with shaking feet, and approach a man in the hall.

 

“…… What happened here……?”

 

In the end, I need ask someone, I know that I should be asking the people from the beginning.

 

“Eh, ah, actually, someone has been kidnapped……”

 

As I thought…….

 

I click my tongue reflexively, my anger is driving me mad. But I should endure it and listen until the end.

 

“If I remember correctly, I think it was a girl with red hair and the girl with light brown hair……. No one could’ve stopped it because it was so sudden……”

 

……It’s regrettable, the only thing matching is just the hair color.

 

“…… ah, if I remember correctly they talking about something like smell, eh I wonder if that is correct……?”

 

That, perhaps about Lily’s scent.

 

Since along the way they slept together yesterday, both of them should have Lily’s scent on them.

 

“…… Thank you”

 

Inside of myself, there’s a big emotion begin to rise up, and I know what it is.

 

“Oh, there you are”

 

“……?”

 

Suddenly, there’s a sound coming from behind me.

 

When I turn around, there is King Ethique standing there.

 

“Ha, King-sama!?”

 

The noble who was talking to me before, suddenly lowered his head, and I’m not an exception now.

 

“…… what’s wrong……?”

 

“Ah, just now a demon familiar came and kidnapped some people, did you already know?”

 

“Ah, I know”

 

A demon familiar, this is the first time I hear about this but, that’s not important now.

 

“…… you hate it……?”

 

And then, Ethique looked directly into my eyes.

 

Most likely, it’s because my face became serious.

 

Ethique moves his eyes to not see my face.

 

But, I understand. I completely understand.

 

The words that Ethique will say next.

 

But I don’t want to hear that.

 

“…… master, it’s your companions”

 

……………………

………………

…………

……

 

After that, I don’t remember what he said.

 

When I notice it, I was lying on the bed, and grasping the futon tightly.

 

“…… Aah”

 

I feel that my eyes became wet.

 

And my voice became hoarse, and my throat feels weird.

 

“…… He…al”

 

I chanting healing magic to heal my voice that became hoarse.

 

“……Haa……”

 

Most likely I have troubled Ethique here.

 

I feel bad about it…….

 

However, I can’t continue like this.

 

I wake up from the futon and approach the door to leave this room.

 

“Nest-, are you awake-?”

 

Exactly at that time, there’s Lily came in with the meal, open the door and enter the room.

 

“Ah, you woke up Nest-!”

 

“A, ah……”

 

I don’t understand what I heard from Ethique before, I don’t even understand what we talk about before.

 

“I make this for Nest, do you want to eat?” (Tn: ugh I can’t make it cuter. Actually, the raw is cuter. Sorry about that.)

 

Lily urged me to come back to the bed, and I abide it.

 

“Fuh- fuh-”

 

Lily blows the food that she carries.

 

“Okay, aan”

 

And then, I try to eat it just like that.

 

“A, aan”

 

…… ah, it’s delicious. As I thought, everything that Lily make is delicious.

 

“Eh, this is wrooong!!”

 

What am I doing?

 

I should try to confirm the information right now, Aura and Tre has been kidnaped you know!?

 

I don’t have a spare time to do this right now!!!

 

There must be something I could do right now!

 

And that is—

 

“Ah, Lily”

 

“Hmm, what-?”

 

She get surprised because I’m suddenly yelling, then she replies with a little confusion.

 

“Lily you are–”

 

I heard this before.

 

But at that time various troubles occurred, so I can’t hear it in the end.

 

“—demon, right?”

 

This time, it’s different from before, it’s not “are you a demon?”, there’s a lot of possibilities this is true, finally, I will hear the truth from Lily.
