Louella fell asleep leaning against the wall of the carriage, perhaps tired of going out.
Eventually, Louella returned to the arms of the Duchess of Merce.
“Thank you for today, Jeje.”
“No, not at all.”
“Why are you acting like a mature kid? Hurry up, you need to go back as well, Jeje.
Your mother will be waiting.”
Merce swept back Gerald’s hair and instructed the coachman on a lot of things.
He seemed to be determined to keep his seat until the carriage left and moved away.
Gerald closed his eyes leaning against the carriage.
“I hate you, Jeje.
I hate you.”
“They said that Louella might get engaged to another boy!”
“I might get engaged to other kids.”
Gerald’s face gradually turned pale.
Gerald, who covered his eyes with a small hand, breathed out slowly.
I don’t want that, Lulu.”
* * *
“Lulu, wake up! Lulu, wake up!
“What, why are you—-”
“Ugly! Why are you crying already? Hurry up and wake up! Things are getting serious!
What a bummer.
Why is it that as soon as I wake up, I have to see Alexid.
I’ve been mad at him ever since I found out that he really believes I’m ugly.
Although childish, this was a matter of pride.
I’m really pretty, why can’t he see that?.
When he saw me waking up half-asleep, Alexid breathed heavily and exhaled.
“Did you go to the Nippler Academy with Jeje today?”
“Can you guess what I did?” He enthusiastically asked, “What? Guess what I did! Hurry up and ask!
I shook off the annoying guy and hugged the pillow.
“What did you do?”
“Don’t sleep, Lulu! It’s a very serious matter.”
“What’s going on?” I said, “Just say it!”
He looked around and put his face near my ear with a determined face.
“Iced Americano* makes me sick,” Alexid said.
What did he say? Is Father sick already—?
*T/N: Alexid said above that I.A.
is making him sick, an abbreviation of Iced Americano.
Then, Louella thought that he said ‘Appa’, which meant, father.
What are you talking about?
“Say it properly! Didn’t you forget that it’s just the two of us here anyway?”
“We are talking about a secret here, so it would be better to keep it a secret.”
“It’s already a secret because it’s just the two of us!”
This kid is being illogical.
“Oh.” he paused as if realizing something big.
In the end, he nodded and sat close to me.
“Our dad is going to the military.”
This was a really important event.
Let’s consider the time.
When I calculated everything with my fingers, it was the time where spawning season was in spring, so female monsters were weakened.
And it was also a period of massive suppression.
“Hmm, I think!” He paused, “After the twenty first! Only three weeks later! What should we do?” He asked with tearful eyes.
He must have been admiringly looking at our father’s activities as promised to me.
Nothing has been discovered yet, but it’s in three weeks? I think I might have to do a lot of things just to prevent this event.
In fact, this may not be of much use.
This is because my father went to control the monsters every spring and autumn, and there were more than one or two monsters that he had contacted.
He sat down on the bed with his complicated head wrapped around him.
“Lulu, what should I do?” My brother asked.
“Wait for a bit.
When he was sullen, he didn’t say anything and looked at my reaction.
What should I do? Time was faster than expected and fate was bound to shake all of us in unexpected ways.
“There’s nothing we can do.”
I should try and change the route.
I should focus more on the invention of Nisephor’s medicine.
I knew that it would be a very difficult thing to achieve.
Because there was no perfect treatment invented that could be used until I turned thirty.
All I had to do was respond to the symptoms of the disease one by one and try to increase the number of days left for my father.
Still, it was safe to say that all the research data was in my head.
This is because Nisephor’s treatment was definitely a field I looked for with Alexid.
Instead of having a high mathematical ability, mine was almost close to zero.
However, God had given me an exceptional memory.
“I told you I saw our dad die of illness.”
Alexid nodded with a frightened expression on his face.
“I need to make medicine.”
About twenty years before the outbreak.
Approximately tem years after it has to be treated before the disease deepens.
Within ten years, we have to produce a cure for Nisephor.
My mind began to function fully.
The person who can get involved in this— Billiers, Gerald, and Alexid.
I couldn’t help but think of it as a small and humble expedition.
Even if it is small, I would still be grateful! It would be better than nothing.
I promised not to get entangled with Gerald again, but my mischievous fate keeps taking Gerald next to me.
Thanks to God’s biased affection, I was the only one suffering.
* * *
In fact, all the people in my family had a good memory.
It was the same with Alexid, but he poured all his memory into swordsmanship.
He never forgot a sword technique he had once learned.
It played a part in making him the youngest knight general.
In other words, he really didn’t have a head for studying.
He twisted his whole body.
I have to make sure to monitor this person doing his homework today.
