Chapter 131: Returned memoirs

“So, Lieutenant Colonel Caldelara, when will you be able to tell us your requirements?” Paula asked in a frustrated tone.

Emilio shrugged his shoulders and answered with a playful expression, “I’m sorry. I was just so happy to meet Miss Lorraine.”

“I see. Well, if you haven’t settled down yet, we’ll have to reschedule. Both Lorraine and I have things to do. If you can’t tell us your requirements right away, could you please take your leave?” 

Paula said with a voice that never lost its elegance and a perfect smile that never lost its beauty.

I feel a chill down my spine.

The room is heated, but it’s still cold.

I looked at Emilio with a slight twitch. Then, a crack appeared in his perfect smile.

Well, that’s understandable.

Although it wasn’t obvious, he was told to leave if we had no business here.

Emilio cleared his throat and said, “I’m sorry about that,” before picking up a bag that was placed at his feet.

What came out of it was a bundle of papers that looked vaguely familiar. 

Emilio stood up, came close to me, handed me the paper, and then returned to his seat. I looked down at the bundle of papers in my hand and couldn’t help but exclaim when I saw the characters written on the cover.

“Why is this…?”

It was information from my friends that I had written down, thinking it might be useful when I was captured by Cassini and others. Well, it might be more accurate to say that it was a brief history of each person’s life experience. In fact, that’s all that was written.

“It was written by Miss Lorraine. I’ve already confirmed the contents, my lord asked me to return it to its owner.”

“Lord …?”

When I looked up from the bundle of papers and saw Emilio, he nodded calmly and said, “Yes, His Highness Adrian.”

At the sound of that name, I groaned inwardly. I had tried not to think about the second prince as much as possible, but it seemed that it was impossible.

I looked at the bundle of papers again. My name was signed on the cover, and it didn’t seem to have changed since the last time I saw it. However, there were traces that someone had read it.

To be honest, not being able to take this out was a regret of mine. It was the only thing that confirmed my connection with everyone. So after everything was over, I thought about looking for it, but for a while, I’m not going to leave the duke’s mansion. 

So, I asked the servants of the mansion for help, but I was told that the place had become the property of the military, and I couldn’t search for anything on my own.

I had already given up on it, but I never expected it to come back to me in this way. And to make matters worse the prince had read it.

“…I see.”

Furthermore, even though I didn’t know, I spoke to the prince in a quarrelsome tone. I’m glad I wasn’t arrested for disrespect, but I’m still scared because I don’t know the reason.

I feel like I can never go to the royal palace again.

However, I have no regrets.

“He was reading it with great interest. His Highness seems to be very interested in Miss Lorraine. Well, as for me, it’s a good thing. It gives me an excuse to come and see you.”

Emilio said that with a happy expression, while Paula looked like she had just tasted something bitter.

Indeed, no matter how much Paula objected, she couldn’t send Emilio away who was acting on the orders of His Highness.

As I watched that, I became even more confused.

Honestly, I didn’t intend to do anything that would pique his interest. Or is it simply because I have memories?

If that’s the case, then I can understand. 

“Well, anyway, I’m glad I could be of help.”

Ignoring Emilio’s pick-up lines, I said.

Then, Emilio slumped his shoulders.

“Can’t you at least flush… No, it’s nothing.”

Stared at by Paula, Emilio cleared his throat again. I looked at him with a lukewarm gaze.

Eventually, he seemed unable to bear the atmosphere and took something out of his luggage and handed it to me again.

“What is this?”

“It’s a letter of gratitude from His Highness. And also, he asked me to tell you that they are doing well.”

I looked up at Emilio from the envelope. He nodded and continued speaking.

“Probably because he thought you might be worried. Also, we are making efforts to ensure that those who were not involved in the conspiracy can be dealt with lightly, but Cassini, the ringleader, and his close associates must pay for their crimes. And if you’re worried, you should visit the barracks at the palace.”

I looked down at the letter that was handed to me.

It was written on high-quality paper and sealed with the royal emblem. There was no doubt that it was a letter from someone in the royal family.

――I can’t believe it.

However, it undeniably existed. It was a thin piece of paper, but it definitely existed. As I stared at it, Emilio continued speaking. 

“So, His Highness and his direct subordinates listened to their stories and investigated their knowledge and skills. Thanks to the notes that Miss Lorraine left behind, we were able to learn about their personalities and hear useful information from those who seemed promising.”

“I see. But I don’t think you would have noticed something like that right away.”

“Indeed. That’s why we didn’t find it ourselves. It was the red-haired young man who was always with Miss Lorraine who gave it to me, saying ‘This is something a lady who took issue with His Highness wrote, so please return it.’ After checking its contents, I thought it would be better to show it to His Highness. I consulted with my colleagues, and they agreed. As a result, we had to return it now, but it helped us move things along quickly. Maybe he knew that and showed it to me on purpose.”

As I listened to Emilio’s story, I gently stroked the bundle of papers in my hand. I didn’t quite understand, but apparently it had been useful for everyone.

Feeling happy about that, I said.
