Those broad shoulders and his face… I feel ecstatic whenever I look at him.”

The young lady, who was particularly fussy, was the famous daughter of Viscount Saluman.
She had blood ties to the Chartero family.
It was said that her relationship with Juri was almost like a real sister.

“But don’t you think he’s looking here?”

“I think so.
Who is he looking at? No way, is it me…?”

“No way.”

“Why!”

The young ladies became a little noisier.
I got a little closer to Juri.

“I… I need to get some fresh air.”

“Is that so? It’s a little noisy, isn’t it?”

“No, I’m just too excited.
I need to calm down before it brings me into trouble.”

Juri chuckled at my shallow joke.

“There’s a very interesting side of you.
All right, see you.
We will stay here the whole time.”

It means to go and join this group later.
It looked like I got a good result on her test.
Even though it was a relationship that happened because of giving a single pearl.

First of all, here we go.

I said goodbye to them and looked back at Valery.
He was looking at me like a man who really couldn’t see anything but only me.
Looking at his face made me feel guilty.

I knew Valery was watching me, but I walked toward the terrace without paying more attention.
Arriving at the terrace connected to the banquet hall, I waited for a while.
Fortunately, it was not long after the banquet began, so the terrace was quiet. 

As expected, the footsteps approaching this way were heard shortly after that.
It’s not too heavy, not too light, not too fast, and not too slow.

One, two…

As it got closer, I counted.
I just counted two and counted three in my head, then immediately turned back.

“Ah.”

I thought we’d run into each other, but by mistake, I lightly slammed my nose against his chest.
It made me stumble backward.
At that time,

“Ah, I’m sorry.”

A warm hand held my waist firmly with apologies.

“Ouch, my nose hurts…”

Who knew I would slam my nose at his hard chest? I rubbed my nose, thinking I had lost my touch because I had been in the North for too long.
Then I opened my eyes again.

I could see his face so close that I could feel his breath.
My face was reflected in his purple eyes.
Without realizing it, I moved my face back a little.
This is not the distance that I already calculated.

“…let me go.”

“Ah, I’m sorry.
Are you all right?”

Valery Ahibara Kasinev released the hand holding my waist and lowered his head to check if my nose was okay.
He looked just like a huge dog.
I deliberately put on a slightly sulky expression on my face.

“Did you follow me again?”

“…Didn’t you look at me to signal me to follow you?”

I guess it wasn’t really a mess.

“I looked at you because I knew you.”

Disappointment flashed across his face when I told him it wasn’t like that.
Everything else is fine, but I really think he can’t hide his feelings.

“You said we would see each other soon.”

I don’t know if it’s true or just my mood that I heard his voice sounded a little sad.

“I did.”

“I thought you meant it right now.”

“Well, it’s true that we will meet at the banquet.”

Then, Valery Ahibara Kasinev’s eyes bent beautifully.
It was such a sigh that I stared blankly for a bit, then glanced at him slightly.

“You knew who I was.”

“That’s…”

At that question, I glanced at him again and reached out to him.
I pulled out his collar, and I could feel him breathing heavily.
But soon, he relaxed as I led him.
I tapped the golden pattern embroidered on the collar and then let go of my hand.

“Here.
Because of this.”

He touched his collar and then looked at me once more.

“Did you know from this?”

“Yes, because only the imperial family can have that pattern.”

In fact, I will know him even without seeing it, but he will be deceived by my words.

“I see.”

“That’s right.”

“But I don’t think I saw that person today.”

“Pardon?”

He looked around once and then faced my eyes again.

“Your escort, the one that has a bad personality.”
