taying away from him.

I managed to do things while putting on a bold front.
But in the end, I ended up being on “the deprived side” just like what Mika said.

When I saw Mika for the first time in a while on my dying breath, his eyes were clearly saying “idiot”, and yet tears were forming in those eyes.


(…What kind of emotion is that?)


I really couldn’t understand him.

As I stared at the empty white ceiling, I tried to think over what Mika had said for a bit.


“Being on the deprived side, huh…”


I wonder what in the world I was being deprived of?

In the end, my brothers, my parents, my position as a prince, and my country were all taken away from me.
But he had been saying that to me since I was still a student.
What was deprived of me when I was still a student, I wonder?

I think I just did what was told by people around me without thinking… That was what I thought, but then I realized.


(Ah, could it be that not doing what I wanted to do was already a loss?)


For example, would it have been better if I studied magical botany instead of just the subjects recommended by people around me? Or maybe I could have tried to explore the outside world a little more.

And also…


(If I had talked to Mika more, I wonder if things would have been any different…)


For some reason, my chest ached a little.

But, just when I felt like I almost reached a good and fitting answer… the maid with round glasses interrupted me.


“Please!! You’re in the way! Don’t be irresponsible just because you overslept.
Please hurry and apologize to His Highness Seth, and eat some bread!”

“No, you’re the one who’s in my way.”

“Listen, Your Highness Nagi.
You have already changed into that outfit, so please! Don’t ever put jam or anything similar on your bread.”


Perhaps she had finished with the preparations, Marie who was carefully brushing my grandiose cloak suddenly yelled at me while pushing me on the back.
“Orange juice and black tea are also off limits! Eat only bread and water!” she said, while kicking me out of the room.


What in the world.

Once again, a plubear turned over in my head.

We had known each other for a long time, but it seemed like that maid still didn’t know my status.

I thought that she shouldn’t bother me, but I didn’t expect to be the one who ended up being treated like a bother instead.

But, grimaced by her intensity, I reluctantly started walking down the hallway.


Still, Marie was very strong despite having such a small stature.

Those iron arms of hers shouldn’t come off even if a plubear pulled them.
Perhaps Marie has some plubear blood running through her veins.
I pictured Marie’s family tree, thinking that it must have been mixed in at about the grandmother’s position.

However, I didn’t remember my back being pushed and getting kicked out like that on the day of the knight investiture ceremony.

I also overslept five years ago, but I didn’t laze around on the sofa afterward.

But then, at that moment, I realized something.

Could it be—


(Could it be that… the future can be changed?)
