“Uh, uh…”


Gerard stood between Kassel and Aika, unable to do anything about it.


Aika held onto Kassel’s pants, trying hard not to get down.


Her eyes flashed brightly, “Gerard, help me!” yet it was hard to refuse the request coldly.


“…Can’t the Miss go with you today?”


At that, Kassel rolled his eyes.


“Now you’re talking nonsense?”


“I apologize.
But this banquet is also where His Grace the Duke of Valiott is coming…”


Kassel’s eyes at Gerard were filled with vicious swear words.


“I apologize…”


Gerard lowered his head and secretly winked at Aika.


A bright smile spread across Aika’s lips as she sat awkwardly on the ground and pricked up her ears.




Aika’s voice popped out.


At the same time, Aika hugged Kassel’s arm.


“I’m going to see Grandpa! Uncle, hm? I will be very quiet!”




He was stunned by the obvious strategy.


Why is the old man there?


That Gerard must have been taken aback by his niece’s cuteness.


He can’t just throw both of them away.


It was noticeable that Aika was twitching her hand and trying to get a chance to grab his.


She seemed to think of holding his hand as a meaning of permission.


He doesn’t know why or what the law is, but she always seemed to have her own firm standards.


If he drops off and comes back, he will be late.


He’s not sure he’ll go alone even if he dies.


I’m dying of old age.


“Close the door.”


Kassel finally raised the white flag.




Aika raised her hand and rejoiced while jumping.


Gerard smiled and shouted, “Yes, I understand! Milord!”, courageously closed the carriage door.


As the carriage departed, Aika, who judged that there was no threat of her returning home, clung even closer to Kassel.


“Uncle, you’re the best! Awesome! The best in Warford! The best in the world!”


“Sit up straight, my ears hurt.”


Even so, Kassel didn’t let go of the hands that were hugging him tightly without letting go.


Aika, who was in high spirits, sang a song with incomprehensible lyrics.


Something about canary, something about yellow flowers.


Something about yellow cats, and something about white butterflies.


Kassel glanced down at Aika and saw the dust still on her head.


As he raised his hand to brush them off, Aika jerked her head.


“What, why.”


“Uncle, what were you going to do?”


“What’s the use of it.”


At the same time, he pretended not to care and carefully brushed the dust off Aika’s head and shoulders.


“But, Uncle, where are we going?”


She then became the perfect companion now that she had been allowed.


What a nonsense.


“Wherever we’re going.
You can’t get off the carriage.”


“Gasp, I don’t want to!”


“How dare you talk back.
Who told you to follow me?”


Aika’s cheeks swelled in an instant.


“This is all for Uncle, though?”


If you can’t talk.


“…Let’s not talk.”


Kassel eventually gave up on stopping his niece.


Uncle May Have Actually Been On My Side


“Wow, it’s shiny!”


Countless lanterns lit up the building.


As if a bunch of stars were collected and scattered on the building.


Uncle said that this is also Grandpa’s.


In fact, I’ve been curious all this time.


Where did Mom go while being dressed up so prettily even though she said it was a nuisance!


When I asked where she was going, Mom always said, “Aika, this is an extension of work.


I couldn’t keep up because I chose not to interrupt when Mom said she was working.


That’s why I always wondered, as I decided to protect Uncle.


Achieve that lofty goal! Solve my doubts too!


That’s how I tried to follow him, but if I had known it was such a cool place, I would have followed Mom right away.


Didn’t Gerard say this is where the banquet is held?


I grabbed Uncle’s clothes as he strode inside and followed him.


“Uncle, did Grandpa come first?”


“How would I know.”


The more I passed through the corridors and entered the fancy banquet hall, the closer I got to Uncle.


I didn’t know because I had hardly ever left the house, but I realized something odd.


Just like in the Imperial Palace, every time I passed by, people’s eyes were all on me.
