Chapter 10 : Vanished Reanschild
Even though such things happened so many times before, she had never failed to come back.
Thus I knew that she’ll be back by tomorrow morning. Until now.
Just like usual, I run through the entrance hall as fast as I could and saw Celazam there, right in front of the door.
「Good morning. Celazam-san. What happened to Reanschild? 」
「Good morning, Refiya-sama. She can’t come today since she has another appointment. So do allow this old man to be with you for a while」
Come again. You must be lying right.
No matter how much you try to hide it, my girls intuition could see through your lie.
I mean even someone like me could see through that level of deception.
And while we’re on this topic, he was half-lying when he said that they couldn’t prepare another attendant due to the labor shortage. Celazam-san.
Celazam-san is pointing to his heart without saying anything.
「Well, shall we go to the drill field then? 」
「Yes. I think that’s the best choice right now」
Because that might make things more convenient for you.
Because it’s not likely that someone amongst them who had high loyalty towards Maou-sama would put my life in danger. On the contrary, they could act as my protectors.
Naturally it might also be the truth that they couldn’t prepare another attendant for me; after all there’s little chance that they’re going to place someone untrustworthy on my side.
Since those people might be trying to take my life.
They really hated humans huh.
Celazam-san and Reanschild’s treatment is completely different from other people.
Even if there’s another person, either Celazam-san or Reanschild was always there by my side.
The only exception is when I’m in the drill field.
Both of them might be amongst the most trusted subordinates of Maou-sama.
And their actions showed it.
On that matter, I think they’re receiving another secret order from Maou-sama. ……… It must be something along those lines right.
It’s hard to say since things have yet to settle down after the enthronement.
I suddenly recalled something.
「Yes. What’s the matter? 」
「Was it Maou-sama’s order to bring me to this place? 」
「The matter of going to the drill field is your idea, Lefiya-sama, do you want to visit another place today? 」
Celazam-san who was walking in front of me then turned around.
Did I just ask with the wrong timing?
No. Will he dodge the topic?
「Was it Maou-sama’s direct order to bring me to the Maou’s castle right now? 」
「Yes, it’s his majesty’s personal order to bring you here to the Maou castle」
As expected, he avoided the topic.
I see. There’s such things.
I’m smiling sweetly.
It feels completely out of place or should I say doesn’t mesh at all. I always feel that there’s this kind of mismatched feeling.
Even if I have some idea about what happens, I just suppressed it.
The one who choose me was……….. Maou-sama himself huh.
But then, I wondered how things turned out to be like that.
Well then, let see which one is a lie and which one is the truth.
「If I want you to tell me about the truth, will you let me know about it? 」
「My apologies, I can’t tell you about that yet.」
Let’s set aside whether it’s really is Maou-sama who chose me or not, in the current situation with me alone here, let’s just assume that this had nothing to do with Maou-sama’s intention to bring me, a human, to the Maou’s castle.
That might be my best choice.
It’s that extremely popular Maou-sama after all. According to what I heard, he didn’t seem to be someone who would move for his personal interest.
He’s doing his best so that the demon kingdom could stand on its feet again after such turmoil.
And yet, someone like that chose me as his bride.
He’s abandoning his distrust and hatred towards humans.
Despite knowing that forcing his personal interests like that would bring about an even more chaotic situation.
Yup, that’s already strange in itself. An unusual case to be exact.
The matter of bringing me along to this place might not be Maou-sama’s personal wish.
Thus it left me with three kinds of scenario.
First, it really is Maou-sama’s personal wish. Second, it’s the wish of the people who wanted to kill me.
And the last one is, there are other people who wanted to bring me to this place.
If they want to kill me, then they have to do that before I reached this place.
There’d be less trouble since the target was just a village girl.
And yet, they brought me along all the way to this place. Let’s set aside the troublesome matters behind such an action, they should be unable to kill me right away.
The same thing could be said about Maou-sama.
The reason why I’m not dead was due to his order.
Or rather, they wouldn’t be able to do so as long as I’m being protected.
Well, naturally Reanschild and Celazam-san is on Maou-sama’s side.
Now that Reanschild is gone.
「There’s some places that I can show you. How about it?」
Celazam-san is pretending to not hear my musing that I utter in a small voice. This silence was the proof of that.
It felt like something is about to explode from inside my chest.
It’d been a long time since I felt this way.
The beauty who vanished without leaving any trace.
And this place itself, The Maou’s castle.
I understood the current situation.
So they came from the rear gate rather than coming to face me from the front huh. It seems to become an even simpler matter without Reanschild protecting me by my side.
Well. Now is my turn right.
Celazam-san heaved a deep sigh as if he didn’t see me.
