May I Ask For One Final Thing? - chapter 4
It’s no good, brother .
Haven’t I told you before?
If you let yourself go, your beautiful face will become ruined .
“Sorry, Leo . ” After coughing slightly, Julius turned to me with a serious look . “Jokes aside, Scarlet, you said you did everything by yourself . ”
I blinked . Is that really the main issue?
“It would be one thing if you merely threw a lone pig from a window but to involve all the nobles present? Let me ask . Why did you make such a racket?”
Even the thought of describing the events leading up to the broken engagement is making my fingers itch to form a fist . I can only imagine the catastrophe that might have occurred if I hadn’t been able to work off my stress in a productive way .
Many thanks, my plentiful sandbags .
My elder brother’s complexion became worse . I glanced around at everything and then back at his face . He was making an expression that clearly said he already expected the worst and had resigned himself to dealing with it .
Brother . I know . I sympathize .
It’s a look that is very familiar on me .
“These people have, with their own mouths, confessed to committing sins and instead of properly reflecting on it, I became too passionate and authorized myself to — ”
“That’s a good foreword . Tell me in more simple words . ”
“Everything was buzzing, so everyone went buzzing . ”
My brother buried his face in his hands and Julius made a loud exclamation without prompting .
Everyone, your reactions are too extreme . You should calm down . Or so I wanted to say but I merely folded my hands and waited patiently for them to recover their composure .
“Hahaha… no, no, your sister is the best, Leo . I’ve never seen or heard of such an incredible lady . Is your whole family magic? Can you secretly walk on water?”
“Oooh, this is going to put our reputation in the grave… She’s been peaceful for the past ten years… How am I going to explain this to mother and father…?!”
Both of you look like you’re having fun .
I don’t understand why but it makes me excited .
Could it be… that this is what friendship is like?
For some reason, I feel a little lonely .
“…relief . Scarlet…… accused of crimes…… . ”
“But… . later… . . right, with the Prince… . . ”
I hear two voice from a great distance . And it seems like the lights are starting to dim .
“… . overdid it… . . magical limit……”
My legs lost strength and I crumpled on the spot .
My brother caught me in a hug before I hit the ground, his arms warm and strong . Speaking of which, even when I was a child, I hated being confined so he always took care to hug me gently .
“My friend, you… . ”
“Not at all… . don’t make me worry about you . Just rest for a while now . ”
I will do that . I think I’ll be a little sweeter to my brother this year too .
I’m a bit tired now, but if you need any help at all please don’t hesitate to ask me later .
“Now . I’ll ask what you want to do— Sigurd . ”
“… . Yes . My lord, Prince Julius . ”
There was a voice I’ve heard before and then I finally slipped unconscious .
