Roel believed that he had just earned the qualification to answer this question. Flustered. Extremely flustered. And embarrassed too.
The usual attitude Roel had with Nora was to ‘stay as far away from me as possible’, but today, he desperately tried to keep her by his side, not allowing her to stray from his line of sight at all.
Ponte Ascart’s diary entries were simply too detailed that Roel felt his fingers and toes curling up. Just from the three entries he had read, he was able to come up with a lot of labels for his ancestor—illicit teacher-student fantasies, ‘flat is justice’ cultist, and very possibly a lolicon.
