rigo? I should pay more attention in the future.

Kaylan still wouldn’t give up his negative thoughts of Rodrigo and me staying alone and remained in the carriage.

“Do you want to stay with Sir Rodrigo for that long, brother?”

He left the wagon a second after I uttered those words.
Our surroundings were now quiet.

Hah, I could finally breathe comfortably.

I had to pretend to be a close lover with Rodrigo in front of Kaylan, but it haunted me constantly how Kaylan could launch an attack on Rodrigo anytime.

Perhaps I would die of a nervous breakdown before they’d be able to murder Rodrigo.

“You seem tired.”

I nodded roughly.

“Please speak of what you have to say.”

I glanced out the window.
Could Kaylan overhear us?

Fortunately, it was raining.
Kaylan was standing a long way from the carriage.

Emitting his dark energy towards the carriage.

“I have nothing to say.”

“Yes?”

“It’s a little annoying.”

I didn’t ask any more questions.
It was ridiculous and absurd, but I could see something was bothering him.

“I felt like my patience was being tested today.”

“What happened?”

“I experienced many things I didn’t quite like.”

“Like what?”

“Are you curious?”

If you’ve started speaking already, why not just finish?

Of course, I was curious.

I nodded and he proceeded to unravel his many challenges.

His calm and quiet voice was soothing to the ear.
It wasn’t bad to hear his voice in real life, rather than in a book.

“I was ordered to enter the Imperial Palace early in the morning.
I thought I was called for an urgent matter, but his Majesty asked me to meet with Princess Delia.”

The Emperor was aiming for Rodrigo.

“Are you offended in any way?”

Rodrigo asked me.
It seems I’ve unconsciously made an unpleasant impression.

“No, go ahead.
I believe it’s something I need to know.”

“There was a time when his Majesty asked what my thoughts of Princess Delia were.
Of course, I said I wasn’t interested.”

“What did you say? I don’t think he’ll let it slide.”

He was a sensitive man when it came to his children.

“I said I wasn’t interested in women.
They had remained silent ever since.
But the whole situation seems to have started again.”

“Why?”

“Are you asking because you don’t know?”

It’s not in my nature to ask if I know.
I nodded my head.

“There’s been a scandal going around involving you and I.
It is now seeming that I am interested in women, so it would be the same for her highness.”

It must have felt uncomfortable, being with someone you couldn’t give what they wanted.

“I understand.
It must have been difficult for you today.”

“There’s one other thing.
Something unpleasant.”

“Again?”

Well, he’s a sensitive person.

“The way Detheus stares at you.
I don’t like it.”

“That’s not my fault.”

This seemed like the second interrogation we’ve had after the one in the Imperial Palace.
I slowly leaned back.

“Don’t laugh like that.”

I looked at Rodrigo with confused eyes.

What are you even talking about?
