“But it’s such a trivial thing, it couldn’t possibly have anything to do with….”
He mutters in a small voice, wrinkling his brow, and I ask him to “tell me” about it.
“When Alicia had a haughty attitude towards her attendants and was selfish and always getting into trouble with everyone around her, a Flower she was randomly raising began to bloom.
I think that was when it all started.”
“Uh, a flower”
“Yes, a flower.”
He said in a serious tone.
I have no idea what Albert was talking about.
Have I not studied hard enough
“Was it really a trivial thing”
I thought as hard as I could, and this was what I came up with.
“It was a pitch-black rose.
I thought it was a mutation and didn’t really pay attention to it, but that fantastic rose was beautiful in the moonlight.”
This was more than just a story.
It won’t just be a fantasy story, it seems.
A pitch-black rose….
I had never seen one before, either.
“You haven’t figured out how that rose was formed”
“Yes, no one ever did.
Besides, it bloomed at night and was dead by the morning.
Now that I think about it, maybe that had something to do with it.”
“I certainly don’t think a person could change just because a rose bloomed.”
“I guess it’s worth looking into it even now.”
Subconsciously, the corners of my mouth were raised.
She was a special girl, after all.
I was convinced of that.
One saint per country would have been enough.
For Two saints to appear in a country like Duelkis, which was not even a major power….
What in the world could have caused such a situation Was there a balance between Alicia and Liz
I would need to ask Duke about it.
“Didn’t you think it was weird that she suddenly became a different person”
“Not at all.
I was just surprised.
She may have changed, but she is still my sister, and I will do everything in my power to bring Alicia back to this house.”
Albert said emphatically.
Oh, please don’t do that.
She was deported after a lot of effort, so she would be furious if she was forced to return right away.
I wanted to see Alicia too, but I wouldn’t want to get in her way.
“I’m sure she can get back on her own if she wanted to.”
“Alone in a strange land Besides, that girl had lived the life of an aristocrat…”
“Don’t underestimate her.
It’s Alicia, you know A strong and beautiful flower that everyone wants.
There are many people who would love to have her.”
I doubt she would die in the Ravaal Kingdom.
I’d rather say it would never happen.
Maybe she is having an incredibly hard time right now.
It’s not for me to say, but Alicia is still a child.
She may not show it, but there may be times when she wants to cry.
But she’d keep moving forward, and as long as Alicia didn’t lose herself, she’d be fine.
In her case, she might be rushing ahead instead of walking onward.
When I imagined that, I couldn’t help but smile.
