“Well, Lyle. Why are we going to the Castle, can you tell me the reason?”
“… well you know already…”
To my question, Lyle didn’t answer.
Now we were heading for the King’s Castle.
I stopped opening my mouth after that question just before. Lyle walks in front of me and… the feeling overflowing from Lyle was extremely bad.
Even if I talked to him or touched his shoulder his mood did not change…
We walked while being guided by one of the servants waiting at the entrance of the castle.
And Yuri was waiting there. I can not hide my surprise at her appearance.
“Oh, after all, Lyle, you came … … But.. I only called you… why is there another person.. I did not called her here…”
Her eyes shine as soon as she saw Lyle appearing.
However, it quickly changed to a look of despise and hate when she looked that I was next to him…
“There will be no problem Lyle… Even if there is this lady here”
“Oh, if you are okay, I do not care about anything”
Ironically, she distorts her mouth.
…… I felt dizziness at this face of innocence and spiteful mouth girl. And at the same time, I feel doubtful about Lyle taking me here with an attitude like he knew it should be like that.
“So, why did you call me?”
“Are you asking me this? … you know already what I want, are you going to bother me to get it from my mouth?”
“No, I do not know, so I’m listening.”
“Oh really …”
She breathes a sigh, but she does not seem to be troubled at all.
Rather, she seemed happy somehow.
“Just straight to you, please enter the Order, because I want you to only listen to me”
“You should know I refused this already”
“I know, but you must receive this order this time”
She has confidence in herself.
“When you enter the Order, I will lend you the power to make you the most powerful man in the kingdom. I know your origin and your rightful place is not under someone…”
I was further shocked by her words.
What on earth is she saying …?
“Why do you know my origins?”
Lyle just quietly asks her.
I did not heard their conversation, my head was crowded with thoughts.
“Now I am the future queen of this country, the information I want I can easily get it. Your appearance is too elegant and I was surprised that you were a mere escort, then I wondered… who were you.. No way, you were the rightful heir to the Marquis Mirese family.. your merciful mother was in love with the Marquis and had you. Although it was not a graceful event at the eyes of outsiders, I’m sympathetically the same as you… as my mother was killed by the wife’s low morale and high jealousy. same as you not? “
Thinking about the words that came out of her, I was silent …
“Looks like what I said was right, you seem to have not told your past to your buddy.”
She was referring to me, her face was distorted and she was laughing with all her might.
“Do you hate them Lyle? The Marquis Mirese, who didn’t know anything, your mother who was killed by his wife… the wife who killed herself after she was expelled, but because he knew nothing, he lived a well and easy life.. I ask you.. Would you like to take care of your mother’s enemy?, I’m sorry that Marquis Mirese and his wife are already dead, but I can give you power enough to take revenge on the entire Mirese House… Is it not a good proposal?”
There was insanity in her eyes. There was nothing to make her hesitate at all either.
Rather, she even seemed to hate the Marquis house.
“It is unfortunate, but I do not need it.”
But Lyle was not floating with that fever. He only firmly refused her.
I just keep quietly looking at him.
“What are you saying?”
At that reply, she was stunned.
“I told you, I do not need it.”
Again and again, her face distorted with anger.
“It’s impossible that you can not hate them! I heard that you once aimed for the Knights right? … There is no way that you don’t want it now, did you get caught in the nets of that lovely duke’s daughter?”
She asked Lyle.
To that intensiveness of feelings and also her anger, I have doubt in my eyes.
But… Lyle looked to her coldly.
“I threw away the name of Marquis Mirese long ago… I originally did not have the qualifications to occupy that place. I was picked up by the lady and my old self died at that moment; I was reborn. So, I am not interested in things like that and I do not think that I would like to enter the Order only to get dust. “
“I just wanted to know why she knew my story that’s why I came here today. It’s only an exhibition of bad taste… so Let’s be careful from now on.”
As soon as he lost interest, Lyle answers the question I asked him before.
“Wait! … The past can not be thrown away easily, especially as grudges and hatreds are piled up with time, don’t you think so too?”
“I can not throw it away, but I don’t have to turn back, I have more important things, so I do not care.”
Lyle left after those words.
I also chase after him in a hurry.
Just as when we came, he was walking silently.
An atmosphere that is heavier than before was drifting between us.
As I thought about the situation, I said to myself, I must speak to Lyle.
“It was a good thing that I accompanied you, I knew your past in this way …”
“I did not mean to hide it from you, I just did not have the timing to say it… It was not something important to bother you with it… “
His face that said so, had no sharpness. The usual man that I knew well.
I smiled embarrassed, and I hit Lyle’s back with a -pom-.
Besides, Lyle also laughed.
“Even if you’re a nobleman … Hey, do I look like I’ll throw you away because of that?, don’t you know me well?”
Merciless, I said to him while smiling. I do not need hold back.
“I’m the dropped seed of Marquis Mirese.. I think she called me today because she wanted to use my position…”
“Well, what is going to happen now then?”
“I did not tell you that she called me, because I don’t want to impose an extra burden on the lady …”
“For my past, I’d have decided to know, my husband checked when I picked up me …… I myself, talking about it when I first got picked up by a lady So “
“You are rebellious against the lady! …. I wanted to know about this sooner!”
Lyle sighs against me who told so laughing gigantically.
“It’s a black history.. why do you want to know so much?”
“By the way, how is it that you ended in the streets at that time?”
“… I’m the son of the Marquis Mirese as you know now … The house of the marquis took me in after my mother died and tried to make me enter the Order of the Knights but… They told me that I can not keep dating all the ladies and I have to settle down first … It seems like someone said I was dirtying the name of the family with a debauchee behavior which I had not”
“Ow … what you said.. are you serious?”
“… So that’s why I said, it’s a black history”
“Oh … Such a noble buddy has fallen to this princess”
“Do not say noble’s buddy … because I’ll cry”
“Well, that’s a lucky thing at the end”
“At that time that person cried … and said to me -you must only depend on your strength-.”
“… What person …?”
“I felt that you were pitying me at that moment, a five-year-old girl lamented about my lack of power, I think I wouldn’t be who I’m now without hearing it… -If you want to become someone who can take care of his own future, be sure to put all your strength and say to yourself that you can make that wish fulfilled- “
He had eyes as if missing that time.
“… It was the first time someone said that to me. You told me that I had the power to protect myself and also my late mother’s dream inside me… Before, I did not want to be in that house and I was not originally interested in my father, I felt that I hated him for what happened. I only wished to enter the order at that time to be further away from father and follow the dream of mother.”
“So, princess you became the most important person to me since that time”
“Well, I did not know, my childhood memories.. most I don’t remember as I was very little…”
“Also, teacher said the same to me when you received me that day.. something like… -common, have confidence, if you believe everything is possible-” I was told by teacher. “
“But you did not choose to follow your mother’s dream…”
That said, again I gently tapped Lyle’s back.
“Naturally … There is something more worthy to do beyond accumulating dust in the order.. Escorting the lady is way more interesting… That’s something only buddies can take care of?”
Lyle also hits me on my back as much as returning my previous hit.
… He’s becoming more cunning.
Funnily, I became irritated at his cunning side, so I turned my back to Lyle and walked ahead, while he kept laughing.
