Katrina didn’t want to be separated from Nezar.
But it was just exhausting…

“What do you not know? Do you have the brain of a bird? Even the parrot that I raised in the palace can say sentences that are repeated more than five times.
But why can’t you?”

“I said I don’t know because I truly don’t know.
What do you want me to do about it? If your parrot is so smart, go and teach it!”

The process of turning Katrina Ezelot into a decent human being required tremendous patience.

Angry, Katrina huffed like a wild boar invading a sweet potato field.
On the other hand, Nezar, who had been staring at her whilst striving to suppress his outburst of rage, eventually slumped down on the desk, helpless.
He just didn’t know what he was doing here with all the wealth and glory he had anymore.

Before long, Kate’s nervous voice was heard from behind his head.

“I-, I take back what I just said.
I’m not a parrot, but please teach me.
I will try harder to memorise it.”

Nezar raised his body with a grimace on his face.

“Why do you always have the same excuses? I’ve told you, if you don’t want to be ignored or disdained wherever you go, you have to be able to speak at least three languages.”

“I told my mother that, and she also said it’s too much for me.”

“Even the idiotic Lockherd, who is only good at using his body, could speak another language.
Do you want to fall behind even the stupid Lockherd?”

Katrina shook her head with her face flushed red at Nezar’s provocation.

“I’d rather not die!”

Her brows furrowed tightly and aggressively at his words, but now that he was already used to it to some extent, he didn’t even bother to point it out.
After getting his frustrated inner self under control, Nezar brought back the book that had been pushed away.

“This is the last time.
This time, memorise it properly.”


As he tiredly repeated ‘Hello.
Nice to meet you.
My name is Katrina Ezelot’, the sun was setting.

Naturally, Katrina’s second language skills did not improve at all.
For a few days, Nezar had to ponder whether Katrina was a goldfish or not.
If she was, how she did become a human? And if she wasn’t, how could she not remember those three simple sentences even after repeating them for two days?

Lockherd, who continued his crazy routine around the racetrack, shook his head every time he heard Nezar’s lament.

“You think that my mother hasn’t tried that? Five tutors left because they couldn’t handle her.

Having said that, Lockherd poured cold water on his sweaty hair.
If he were to go out there in this state and his hair froze, the idiot would probably make a fuss about how amazing and miraculous seemed to him.
Even though Nezar couldn’t see it for himself, he could already tell, for the scenario had already been drawn clearly before his eyes.

Come to think about it, Katrina and Lockherd had many similarities.
The fact that they were closer to being an animal rather than a human, that they only did what they wanted, and that they were disgusted at the sight of bell peppers.
Of course, the ignorance on Katrina’s part had to be added up endlessly.
But all in all, they truly related as siblings in many ways.

“But I don’t think those five were as sincere as you are though.
If you leave, Kate might cry until she’s dehydrated.”

To Lockherd’s words, Nezar answered nonchalantly.

“I promised to come back in a month.”

“A month? Isn’t that when the semester starts?”

“That’s right.
I’m going back to the academy after four more days in Ezelot.”

Because of Katrina, who always asked him to come back every time he saw her, he was forced to make a specific appointment.

“Are you really the Nezar Audrine Caval I know? Are you sure you’re not someone else? Or do you have a fever?”

Lockherd’s damp palm reached over to Nezar’s forehead.
At that, Nezar slapped his hand out, irritated.
Lockherd, whose hand got slapped, clicked his tongue.

“How funny.
If she asks you to marry her, will you do that as well?”

“Don’t be absurd.”

“How is that absurd? Do you think you can marry the grown-up Kate to someone else later on when you love her this much? I am her real brother in the first place, not you, so why are you pampering her this much?”

“If you’re going to keep talking nonsense, get out of here.
Go ride on your stupid horse, fall off and break your nose.”

“You’re the one who’ll fall though, not me.
Let’s see who’s right.”

Lockherd snorted as he did not forget to curse his friend to the very end.
Though Nezar just left it out of his ears.
