Chapter 13: The further I looked into the dream
It’s unbelievable that such a future is waiting for me.
I hate it.
“Well, not yet. There is not enough evidence that it will become a true dream. Besides, I have blocking skills.
Thanks to that, my life at the Academy has become more comfortable than a few days ago.
Moreover, I have also started to interact with Lars.
If I were invited to study abroad in the neighboring country, I might have gone.
“No. Now I understand that it is dangerous. But there is a problem.”
Michelia will probably hate me, who is the fiance with a bad reputation of her lover.
Albert also hates me just because he did not break the engagement for the sake of the family.
If something similar to the story happens, I will definitely be portrayed as the villainess.
Even if I do nothing, I will inevitably be judged to be doing something wrong simply because my father has connections with the neighboring country.
“I can’t do anything about Father…”
I don’t understand that cold father very well either.
He doesn’t even tell me where he’s going or whether he’ll be absent tomorrow when I ask the butler.
“And while the butler shows me some concern, he is very strict with others. There was even a time when I was confined to my room after it was discovered that I had approached my father’s study.
All matters concerning my father’s territory are delegated to those who have been dispatched.
In the first place, a noble young lady should not be concerned about such things.
In the event of an emergency, I am told to rely on the butler and other relatives who have served until then and somehow manage as a substitute for my husband…
Basically, I don’t receive any guidance on managing the territory at all.
As a result, I don’t know much about the territory and I don’t know who my father is related to.
Furthermore, my father never takes me with him to socialize, so I don’t know much about his social connections either.
There are people who visit, so I know some people through that, but…
Even in a story that depicted a situation close to a dream, the character corresponding to my father was cautious.
The only trace of conspiracy in the house is the placement of chess pieces in my room. In the story, my father moved the pieces as he imagined in his mind.
Come to think of it, chess was always placed in my father’s private room that I saw once. Remembering that makes me shudder.
The character in the story who is the father burned dangerous documents and did not keep necessary documents in the mansion.
Even though the protagonist searched for evidence, there was only one sentence written that the house where he hid it burned down with the manager.
Furthermore, the reason for committing such crimes remains unknown…
“The only thing we can do is investigate whether a special sacred flower appears on the territory where Michelia’s birthplace was.”
If something like a story really happened.
“No, I have not dreamed about that part yet.”
I’m planning to eat flower confectionery and dream again today, so it would be nice if I find out something different about it…
If it is different, is it only because Michelia’s father, um… and I, in turn, resent me for taking away her childhood friend?
I don’t know if the nightmares are keeping me from getting a good night’s sleep, but I’m feeling a bit queasy thinking that I won’t be able to sleep soundly again today. But it can’t be helped.
I’ll act early and keep my distance from strange things.
I took out flower confectionery before going to bed.
“Please tell me if this book is indeed the story itself related to my nightmare.”
I don’t believe in God.
But I believed in the power of magic that exists.
I made a wish on that magic and ate a flower petal.
That day, I watched a dream knowing that it was a dream.
“You’ve suffered a lot… I’m very sorry for not noticing. It must have been very painful for you.”
The person who said this, knelt in front of me, sitting on a chair.
He is older than me. He has golden brown hair, wide shoulders with a sturdy body, and a warrior-like face with amber eyes… At first, I remembered being afraid of this person.
Somehow, his eyes seemed to be looking for prey like a hawk.
He wears a soft green coat that is different from his usual attire, and a gray garment with many noble embroideries.
Just that made me feel a little relieved.
I think the previous me didn’t have much contact with such people, so I wasn’t used to it.
Now, I feel that the person who shows such sympathy is a very good person.
“I’m happy that you say that. You are a kind person, General.”
The amber eyes narrowed softly.
“I’m just an ordinary person. It’s just that my surroundings were not good. But it’s okay. It’s different here in the Leoguard kingdom. There are no humans who hold grudges against your father. And there are also no people who know about your pitiful circumstances. You can start anew. So let’s go together.”
A hand was extended to me.
I took the general’s hand and stood up.
At this time, I was wearing a light gray dress with silver beads and pearls sewn onto it.
I had been invited to a party and it was this generous general, but I didn’t feel like going so I had them make me a plain-colored dress.
But the finished product was a beautiful dress that looked silver from a distance.
I was afraid of standing out and on the day of the event, I was feeling down, but the general himself convinced me to come.
The general who took the carriage with me sat next to me and urged me.
“Come on, tell me more about your homeland. Miss Linea. And what was the name of the daughter who stole your fiance?”
