oking at it, I got up from my seat and approached his side.

“How did you know that the wine is poisoned when you’re trying to fool me?”

“They purposely aimed for the wine as silver utensils are not used.”


“If you keep saying you’re stupid, you become really stupid, so don’t say you really are because you are not a fool.”

“And! If my dad is an idiot, so am I, your daughter, an idiot too?”

Looking at me as I approached him, the Grand Duke smiled and stroked my head.

“Your consolation method is rather unique.”


“It comforts me strangely.
It’s clumsy, but it comforts me.”

“That’s a relief!”

The Grand Duke fiddled with the spoon to see if he was finally out of shock.

“I’ll catch him right away and kill him.
How dare him feed me poison?”


“What do you mean ‘no’?”

“It’s not just one person.”

“Is there another one?”


There were but these people were still unclear.

In the past, I didn’t pay any attention to the Grand Duke, so I didn’t pay much attention to this situation.
Now, everything is ambiguous.

I didn’t even know if it’s ambiguous because I didn’t hear anything or if it’s ambiguous in a way because there’s another reason.

“There’s more, but you can’t say it yet?”

“Yeah! So if you’re going to catch them, you’d better catch them all at once.”

“I see.
I understand… I’m sure they’ll hide themselves or run away when what they’re doing is revealed.”

Only then did he strongly nod his head.
Now, like a man who made up his mind, the face of the Grand Duke had returned just like before.

He looked strong, and he is cooler than anyone else.

“You look good.”

Now that I feel like he is back to his original state, I remembered something and beamed a smile.

It was then…

As I was smiling like a fool all by myself, the Grand Duke jumped up from his seat.
He hugged me as he kneeled on the floor with a sigh of relief.

“Wh-What are you doing?”

“Oh, I forgot to say something and just hugged.
It seems it has become a habit because Harris likes to hug me like this.”

“Uh… Oh, I’ll let you off today.”

“I’ll be careful next time.”

“More than that, Bebe, what’s your wish? Didn’t you tell me this for just a single wish?”

At times like this, he’s quick to catch on.
But it’s very comfortable.

I didn’t have to tell him, but I did on my own.

Of course, it’s a little uncomfortable because he understands my thoughts the other way around and then misunderstands it, but it’s generally good.

“Oh right!”

“So, what’s the wish you want to tell me?”

“You know how much I need you, right?”
