Quite a few minutes have passed since the girl has awakened.

.

The little girl’s just been crying herself out all this time.

This moment seems like salvation granted to her that has finally appeared after her years of suffering.

Like she has just received the warmth and affection that she had ever longed for.

.

The little girl’s grasp on me is so tight I can’t help but return the gesture.

.

To be honest, I was almost in a similar position as her until recently.

I was so lost and filled with despair as the people I have known as family abandoned me. But Rei, along with everyone else, taught me the warmth that I thought I would never again feel.

.

That’s why, though just a bit, I can somehow understand this little girl.

.

[I’m so sorry… I know it’s the first time we met but…]

[Haha… It’s okay.]

.

I look at the girl crying on my chest with a bitter smile on my face.

.

[Uhm, where did you come from….? Seems like you’re under some kind of special circumstance.]

[*sobs*… ah, yes… But I… uhm…]

[You don’t have to be afraid. Please tell me.]

[Okay… I- I was from the mansion of Euphias Ald-sama and… I ran away…]

[Euphias Ald..…]

.

Rei whispers the name of who seemed to be the young girl’s master.

As someone from the royal family, Rei might have some information about him.

.

But really — Kaya was right. It was indeed the Ald family.

A name pretty well known even amongst nobility.

.

None of us spoke for quite a while so it seemed like the girl started to misunderstand something. She lowers her head while her voice trembles as she speaks quietly.

.

[I’m sorry… Someone like me will only give trouble, won’t I… I can’t afford to inconvenience you guys any longer. I don’t know how to express it better but I am really grateful for your help. Thank you so much.]

.

The girl stood up but I held her in place with my right hand.

.

[No, it’s fine. I don’t think you can actually even go back home considering the situation.]

[Yes… Bu-but…]

[Fufufu, then do not worry any further.]

.

It’s the first time Maeri has opened her mouth all this while but then she looks at the little girl with a mellowful smile.

.

[The two people in front of you are of great character. Especially Arios-sama, just recently, against Dudley, he…]

[Now now. Refrain from speaking anything unnecessary.]

.

I have to stop Maeri immediately before she starts saying something outrageous.

.

[Eh… Arios-san, against Dudley… Don’t tell me…]

.

Ah, seems like it’s already too late though.

The girl has already understood enough from those little words that came out of Maeri.

.

[The Ald estate was in quite a ruckus as well just recently because… of the person named Arios… then, is it really…?]

[Haaaaaa….]

.

I can’t help but let out a sigh so exasperated as I scratch the back of my head.
