Behind him was a mild-mannered old man with wings on his back.

 

“What a bunch of old men! Look at him! Look how pale Chika-san is!”

 

Everyone’s eyes were drawn to me.

 

Am I that pale?

 

The presence of the three men was indeed too strong and a little stressful, but…

 

The light that was enveloping Gail-san and Douglas-san’s disappeared, and Hector-sama’s power to hold me also weakened.

 

Gail-san and Douglas-san looked uncomfortable as if they had just come back to their senses.

 

[Douglas] “I’m sorry Chika, I lost my temper.
Our beast form is too strong for you, isn’t it? Are you okay?”

 

[Gail] “He’s right.
You don’t look so good.
Are you sure you’re not pushing yourself too hard?”

 

“I had a few moments of discomfort, but I’m fine now.
I’m sorry for worrying you.”

 

I felt once again that they were both overprotective of me.

 

“Dear father-in-law, please return to your normal form first.
Chika-san is troubled.”

 

“Mmm.
But…”

 

“Fa.
Ther.
In.
Law.”

 

Cyril-sama’s expression was very cold as he glared at Hector-sama.

 

“I got it, nya~ Chika-chan, just wait here.
Don’t go to Doug.
I’ll be right back.”

 

Hector-sama got up and walked into the inner room.

 

A few moments later, a man wearing what looked like gorgeous robes appeared from inside the room.

 

No, I’m pretty sure it was Hector-sama, but he seemed to be a little confusing because his appearance didn’t match what he had said and done earlier.

 

His shining blond hair was swept back like a mane, and his face, despite its deeply etched wrinkles, looked just like Douglas-san’s when he had a serious expression on his face.

 

However, his gray eyes, like Alberto-san’s, were sharp and seemed to pierce the line of sight.

 

And with his imposing walk and blessed physique, I could feel the dignity of royalty even more than Albert-sama.
If I were a faint-hearted person, I would not be able to move even if he just stared at me.

 

I also felt a little frightened.

 

It’s hard to believe that this is the same person who had been yelling, ‘No way’ and ‘nya~’ just now.

 

“Did I keep you waiting, Chika-chan? Do you miss me? Well well, you’ve been a good boy.
Now, come and sit on my lap.”

 

Ah, it was the same person.

 

And I’m going to be held in Hector-sama’s lap.

 

Douglas-san and Gail-san had a pained look on their faces when they glanced at me…

 

[Douglas] “Chika, I’m sorry but can you go along with my dad’s antics for a little while longer? I’m sorry, Gail, but you’ll have to put up with my decision for now.”

 

Gail-san and I nodded in agreement.

 

“Like this, we can have a nice talk.
I should have come from the beginning.
Anyway, why don’t you all sit down?”

 

Everyone sat down on the sofa, and I was finally able to greet Hector-sama properly.

 

“Hector-sama, my name is Shinra Chikayuki and I truly apologize for the delay in greeting you.
I have been in the great care of Douglas-san and the others.”

 

“You’re a little stiff, aren’t you, Chika-chan? You can call me Hector or father-in-law if you like.
Or, well, how about grandpa instead?”

 

Oh, I feel like I’m having déjà vu.

 

The gap between his appearance and personality was so great that I couldn’t help but feel weak.

 

“Th- then, I will call you father-in-law.”

 

“How did your father-in-law know my name?

 

“You said your name in the audience room, didn’t you? I’ve been watching you too, you know.
Well, I know you have many things to worry about, but you are safe now, and I am on your side, Chika-chan.”

 

“Thank you very much.
I truly apologize for the troubles I’m causing you.”

 

I looked up at Hector-sama and bowed my head.
Then, he slowly stroked my cheek, ear, and head.

 

His hands were very gentle and reminded me of Douglas-san’s.

 

I’m not sure if it’s because I’m a little too comfortable and enraptured, but Douglas-san glared at me.

 

His mouth was moving without making a sound, and when I looked closely, I saw that it was forming the words ‘I will punish you’.

 

What have I done to deserve this? I was a little scared of what was going to happen to me including that time with Theo-san.

 

“Well then, may I have a moment, please? The chief sorcerer would like to speak with you.”

 

Cyril-sama raised his voice while urging the old man next to him.

 

“Hector-sama, pardon me for interrupting you.
It has been a long time since Douglas-sama and Gail-sama have been here too.
It’s nice to meet you, Chikayuki-dono.
I’m Troth, and I’ve been appointed Chief Magician by His Majesty.
Pleased to make your acquaintance.”

 

“I’m Shinra Chikayuki.
It’s nice to meet you too.”

 

“I’m sorry to hear about your troubles and the curse of the sex slave.”

 

That was right.
Troth-san came to me to break the curse of sex slavery that I was under.

 

“So, Troth, I want to ask you in conclusion, can you break the curse that is on Chika?”

 

“Yes, I can.”

 

He can!

 

With this, I don’t have to show them my shameful appearance.

 

I could feel my body relax a little with relief.

 

“I can, but… I’m not sure if I’m going to be able to say this in front of Cyril-sama and Chikayuki-sama…”

 

What exactly is there to say?

 

“I’m ready for this.
If there is a way, please let me know.”

 

“You can’t say it in front of me too?”

 

Cyril-sama seemed to feel something strange about the way Troth-san spoke.

 

After this, I was told by Troth-san a fact that surprised even Cyril-sama.

1This point marks a flashback.2He’s not saying ‘nyaa’ literally in the raw.
It’s just he’s saying that in a cute manner and I couldn’t think of anything equal in english..
:”)3This too.
It should be like “nyaa your ass!”, but it’s too rude for a royalty setting, so I change it to eyes instead~4Douglas’s mother….
I don’t want to spoil you here.
It will be stated so just read it until the end~ :v5Looking to Chika.6Looking to Doug and Gail.
