“… What do I do now?”
Lelia was lying on the bed with her forehead pressed against the pillow.
She felt like something new kept happening over and over again, without time to ponder one problem for very long. She felt complicated.
Other things can be solved sequentially, but… Kalix’s issue was a little different.
She thought she could just fix his eyes. How did Kalix come to such a misunderstanding…?
[Is it because I was caught secretly kissing him?]
She had no one to blame. It was all her fault.
[How can I explain this…?]
She felt cramped as if a heavy stone had been placed on her chest.
In the meantime, she felt strange when she recalled the feeling of the kiss Kalix shared with her.
It felt like her mouth was running dry.
To do that with her childhood friend… Urgh!!!
Lelia shook her head several times to forget about it.
[Forget about it. I’ll explain it to Kalix properly later…]
First and foremost…
After getting her body up, she brought up the recipe crafting screen.
- Immortal Sight Restoration Potion
- List of required materials
- Determination of a kiss of love (1/1)
She saw the mission completion message, but when she saw the item with her own eyes, her mind was at ease.
She created the item by pressing the create button without hesitation.
- ‘Immortal Sight Recovery Potion’ production completed! ✧٩(ˊωˋ*)و✧
[Special Recipe~: Immortal Sight Restoration Potion]
※The best medicine made by God’s ‘Heo Zum’! It is a medicine that gives you a high degree of vision. A special medicine for people with blind eyes! ♪(๑ᴖ◡ᴖ๑)♪
[Currently, there are <3> special recipes that have not been cleared.(*☌ᴗ☌)و*ﾟ]
As the large-scale update progressed, some recipes seemed to have been sorted out. She will check that out later… .
Lelia checked the ‘Immortal Sight Restoration Potion’ in her item inventory.
The quantity was one.
Unlike the medicine made to cure her grandmother’s illness, only 1 spawns, and the ingredient ‘Love Kiss Crystal’ would become 0 again.
[I need to bring some medicine to Kalix…]
The problem is that it’s a bit inconvenient to go to see Kalix.
But she couldn’t even ask someone else to deliver the medicine for her.
If the medicine is lost or broken…?
[I have to kiss you again… !]
She hated that. Maybe she will somehow feel at ease after seeing him in order to bring this medicine to him.
The problem was that her legs did not move at all.
That afternoon, Lelia was holding a vial and was hesitating for a long time.
At that time, Romeo arrived.
“Sir Romeo, what are you doing?”
As before, when Lelia treated him with respect, Romeo frowned for a moment and then smiled.
“What…? Great. I just came to see what’s going on. Aren’t the other guys here today?”
“No, they didn’t come.”
When Lelia answered firmly, Romeo observed her expression with a curious gaze.
For some reason, it felt like he was looking inside her, so Lelia glanced away from his eyes.
“Is that all you have to say?”
“… No. I have one more thing to say. When we went to clean up the pagans, I found something.”
Lelia’s eyes widened at Romeo’s words.
Romeo smiled as if he knew she would look at him with round eyes like a rabbit.
He then sat down naturally on the sofa in the parlor. Lelia called Becky to ask for some snacks because she thought it would take a long time.
After Becky left a food tray, Romeo slowly opened his mouth.
“There are pagans. But do you know someone who is there?”
Lelia narrowed her eyes. Originally, the battle was to be fought by Uncle Zenon, not her friends.
The original story was about the death of her uncle in that battle.
According to Romeo, Uncle Zenon of the original book did not even know that he died fighting a heathen. It was certainly suspicious.
“I let one of them run away on purpose.”
“Are you using tracking magic?”
Romeo smiled slightly at Lelia’s question.
“Right. It was very rewarding.”
“Then… what now?”
“Yeah, I think he’s returned to base now… I’m here to tell you. I came here on my way to your grandfather or Sir Carius.”
It was very well done.
He knew Lelia, and he didn’t want her to worry about her grandfather or her uncle for nothing.
It was best if she could handle it alone without anyone knowing. Of course it will be difficult…
But with Romeo’s help, it will be possible.
Lelia looked at Romeo with trusting eyes. Romeo enjoyed those eyes for a moment.
“What. Are those eyes all right now? Do you have anything to say?”
When Romeo noticed her, Lelia opened her mouth with a sigh.
“Ah! Romeo is amazing! How do you know tracking magic… So great. He is also the best wizard on the continent.”
“Well… It’s too contrived.”
“… Sir Romeo is still meticulous and reliable.”
As Lelia added hurriedly, Romeo couldn’t control the corners of his lips from rising.
Romeo wanted to be sharp, but there were times when it was so simple.
Lelia once again remembered who Romeo was and waited for him to share the information.
Romeo said in a light voice, as if humming.
“There was a small inhabited village at the end of the western part of the estate, did you know?”
“The end of the western area?”
At the end of the western part of the estate, there was a sandy desert.
There was a village there a long time ago, but she heard that they all moved after the sandstorm. But there was a town there where people live?
“You have to go to know the details, but there seemed to be quite a few people. Is there anything you are investigating?”
When Romeo asked the question, Lelia pondered and nodded her head. If it’s Romeo, he might be a big help.
She could trust Romeo completely. She can’t tell him everything, but Romeo wouldn’t ask why.
She was determined and she opened her mouth to Romeo.
“Actually… Sooner or later, bad things will happen to the Superion family. Grandpa, Uncle Carius, Aunt Atias… I want to stop that.”
Romeo didn’t ask questions like, how did she know that in advance?
He just looked at Lelia and asked.
“Who is suspicious?”
Lelia shook her head. There was no one at the moment.
“Now… We are investigating.”
“Did you meet someone?”
“That’s not it. I mean…”
He nodded his head when Lelia couldn’t speak further.
“You don’t have to answer. However… I think I can help. How?”
Romeo asked, reaching his hand forward. He grabbed Lelia’s hand like a fish he had caught.
“If Sir R omeo helps me, I will be reassured! Honestly, out of the four of you, Sir Romeo is the smartest. Right?”
Romeo’s expression softened like a happy cat at the flattering remarks.
Lelia clenched her teeth inwardly. Perhaps he noticed that, Romeo said with a happy voice.
“I had no idea that the captain was so good at flattering. He’s quite talented.”
Lelia immediately removed Romeo’s hand. She was angry and her self-esteem was broken, but… she couldn’t help it.
It had been a long time since the authority of the captain had fallen to the ground.
It squeezed Lelia’s pride and she grabbed Romeo’s hand again.
“… First of all, we need to keep Uncle Carius from leaving the castle for a while. So he doesn’t go missing.”
“… Hmmm. Okay.”
Romeo nodded his head, slowly rubbing the back of Lelia’s hand with his other hand.
The feeling of touching the back of her hand was itchy, but Lelia didn’t mind much.
But as Romeo stumbled and laughed, she soon noticed that something was wrong with him and she looked at him.
“You heard my explanation, right?”
[I don’t think he heard…]
Lelia squinted at Romeo. Nevertheless, Romeo closed his eyes and laughed as if he was dying out of love.
Then he raised the hand stroking the back of her hand, patting Lelia on the cheek.
“You have become so cute, huh?”
Lelia was taken aback by his attitude, as if he was dealing with his younger brother, whom he hadn’t seen in a long time.
When she became so upset that she let go of his hand and stared at him, Romeo grabbed his stomach and laughed.
Lelia tried to maintain the same attitude as before until she had completely solved the golden spell and confessed all the facts with her own mouth.
But when Romeo came out like this, she wanted to scream, “Hey, do you want to die?” and hit him like a child.
Lelia managed to resist the urge and drove Romeo out of her room.
As Romeo was being kicked out, he laughed and smirked.
He said, “Oh, don’t worry about the West. I will go there myself.”
Meanwhile, when Lelia asked worriedly, Romeo answered with a smile.
“Don’t worry, I’m going to take at least one person with me as my escort.”
Romeo spoke exactly like his other three friends were subordinates. Lelia laughed, and he added one last word to her.
“Oh, and if Griffith or Oscar comes, don’t ever meet them.”
Lelia tilted her head at his inexplicable words.
Romeo left after he had asked her to do so two or three more times.
It was after eating with her aunt and uncle and even going for a walk with her grandmother.
Eventually, the sun was setting.
Oscar and Griffith arrived only after the sun had completely crossed the horizon.
