𝐂𝐡𝐚𝐩𝐭𝐞𝐫 𝟏𝟎𝟗

Around the time there were only six months left for the third-year students, in the private dining room of the cafeteria, Eddie and Diana,

Were having lunch with Arno and Ruri, Chris and Kyle.

Contrary to the usual scene, everyone’s faces were clouded.

It was because Douglas, who should have been here, was absent.

“Douglas-senpai is absent again today.

I wonder what’s going on.”

“I don’t know.

He suddenly took a day off, and now he hasn’t come for ten days.

I wonder what happened.”

Douglas, who had been coming every day without a break, has been absent for the past ten days.

If there was a reason for him to be absent, the school would be notified, and it wouldn’t be strange.

But it seems that there has been no contact with the school.

There was nothing unusual until the day before he took the break.

He didn’t look ill or anything like that; he seemed fine.

If it were an accident or an injury, there should have been a report.

Douglas’ parents, Marquis Taylor and his wife, are always in their territory,

So I heard that Douglas lives in the mansion in the royal capital with his servants.

I wonder if there was something urgent that made him return to his territory.

“Shall we inquire at the mansion. . .?”

“Yeah, I think that’s a good idea.

If he’s continuing to be absent, there must be a reason.

Even if something has happened, Douglas-senpai might be in trouble and can’t rely on Sister Sofia.”

“That might be true.”

Even if he were in trouble, I can’t imagine Douglas relying on me.

He would probably say that we’re not close in that way.

I think he could rely on me if I can do something, but 

It could be said that we became close precisely because Douglas is fastidious.

Well, even if he did rely on me, it would be difficult to interfere with the affairs of a noble house.

I understand that, so I’m hesitant to inquire, and that’s why it’s taken ten days.

“Shall we have Shadow investigate?”

“Shadow? Can you do that?”

Have the three Shadows, who are always by my side as guards, investigate?

Two of them are always with me, and they take turns resting.

Would they have time to investigate?

“Il, Yun, Dana each have subordinates.

Only those three can guard the Princess without the King’s permission,

But the other missions can be handled by the subordinates.”

“I see. There were many Shadows.”

I didn’t know there were so many.

I thought there must be others, as they should be guarding my grandfather as well,

But I hadn’t thought there were so many that each one had subordinates.

“Then let’s have them investigate.”

“Yeah. But, is it okay? To investigate?”

“It’s too late now. He’s been investigated for various things since becoming Sofia’s school friend,

And that should have been communicated to Douglas.

Being with the crown princess, it’s only natural.”

“Ah, I see.

. . .It means that he might be involved because of me, right?”

“Being a school friend of the crown princess means you’ll be protected to some extent until graduation.

So that nothing can be done to Sofia through Douglas.

That’s why we can use the Shadow to investigate.

We won’t investigate without reason, no matter what.”

“I understand. Then, I want them to investigate properly.”

If the reason for his absence has anything to do with me, I want to help him somehow.

If he stops coming to school, he might not be able to graduate.

I want to compete with Douglas for test scores until the end and graduate with Ruri as a trio.

. . .I really wonder what happened.

Three days later.

Chris, Kyle, and I were standing in front of a house on the outskirts of the royal capital.

Unlike a noble’s mansion, it was a small two-story house.

This small house is said to be standard for the commoners of the royal capital to live in.

It’s just the right size for a family to live in.

“Is he really here?”

“You read the report from the shadows, didn’t you?”

“Yeah, I did, but. . . .”

When I rang the doorbell, I sensed someone moving inside the house.

But they were only watching us, and didn’t come out.

. . .He’s definitely hiding.

“Douglas, it’s me, Sofia.

Won’t you come out?”

When I called out a little louder, I could tell that the person inside was coming towards us.

Ah, this magical power. It’s Douglas.

When the door was opened, there was a face that seemed to want to ask why we were here.

We have questions too.

“It’s been a while, Douglas.

I’ve come to talk. Can you let me in?”

“. . .Alright. Come in.”
