“Huh? Not betray Eugenis? Is that okay? Swearing such a thing.

Won’t you be stopped if Rujail finds out?”

That’s why he didn’t bring Rujail’s civil official here.

He would surely be stopped if he tried to make such an oath.

What would happen if the king or crown prince of Rujail found out about this?

I feel it’s not good to make that oath on our own.

“I have vowed to the King when leaving Rujail.

I won’t do anything detrimental to Rujail.

Therefore, my work and research in Eugenis will be limited to areas unrelated to war.

I am allowed to do anything else as I please.”

“Ah, so you’ve vowed not to be hostile to Rujail.

. . .Hey, Chris. Will it be okay if the King gives permission?”

“Even if Prince Ishra says it’s good, it would be better to check once more.”

“You’re right.

Prince Ishra, I’ll confirm once more with Rujail’s King.

If permission is given, may I have you swear?”

“Yes! Please do!”

It will be contingent on receiving approval, but we will have consented on this side.

Prince Ishra smiled with relief and bowed his head.

“When I saw that greenhouse, I desperately wanted to research.

Also, Emillia said that she wants to work hard for this country as one of the royals,

To support Sofia-sama.

I thought it would be lonely just to watch.

If I could help, Emillia could do what she wants to do twice as much.”

“Fufu, Emillia said such a thing?

That’s right, Prince Ishra, along with Emillia,

I would be grateful if you could support Eddie and the others.

“. . .Hey, if it’s Prince Ishra,

Couldn’t he be in charge of the laboratory?”

“Eh? Ah, yes! If possible, I’d like to ask you.”

“I don’t know if I can do it, but I’m interested in the laboratory.

If I get permission from Rujail, please let me work hard then.”

My magic research has been half-baked until now,

But it will be reliable if Prince Ishra joins.

When I become the queen, I won’t have the leisure to research,

So I was wondering what to do.

Of course, I don’t think I can entrust it right away,

But in the future, I’d like Prince Ishra to research as he wishes.

“Sofia-sama, a message has arrived from the Order.”

David, who thought the conversation was over, came into the room.

It seems a message has arrived from the border knight order.

“. . .The barrier wall was deactivated earlier today.

The Order patrolled and confirmed that there were no issues.

Tomorrow morning, they will open the gate on Kokodia’s side and operate the commercial district as planned.”

“Ah, it’s in time.”

“The report was delayed because the Order was conducting verification.

I was a little worried because there was no contact even though it was the scheduled time for deactivation.

. . .Well, all that’s left is to wait for Kyle to come back.”

“Yes, indeed. . .”

I feel relieved to hear that the barrier wall was safely deactivated.

All that’s left is to wait for Kyle and the others to return without any problems.

David left the room to inform the civil officials.

“Um, are you two okay?”

“Hm? What’s wrong?”

Even though Prince Ishra asks with concern,

I tilt my head, not knowing what he’s talking about.

“When I first learned about Sofia-sama, I was surprised to hear that there were two consorts.

Well, I knew that three consorts were needed,

But I thought it would be tough for Sofia-sama.

However, when I saw Sofia-sama, Chris-sama, and Kyle-sama together,

I was surprised that the magical power was not tainted at all.”

“The magical power is tainted?”

“The reason why people in Rujail marry only once in a lifetime is,

Because they believe that souls are paired.

To marry is unique to each other,

And it is said that mixing with anything else will cloud the magic.

In Rujail, clouding the magic means the same as clouding the soul.

You won’t be able to reincarnate, so even the royal family doesn’t marry more than one person.”

“If that’s the belief, then you can’t marry a concubine.”

I was surprised at Rujail’s way of thinking, which is different from religious views,

So I think that’s why he firmly refused to take the princess of Kokodia as a concubine.

If you think you can’t reincarnate, you probably won’t marry unless there is something serious.

“Yes, that’s why I thought it must be hard for Sofia-sama.

Even so, Sofia-sama and the others have the same magical power, yet,

All three are completely unclouded.

I was surprised to think that the three could become a pair. . . that such a fate exists.”

The same magic with three people? I and Chris looked at each other, wondering if such a thing could happen.

Chris also tilted his head, seeming not to know.

“However, the two of you now seem to have a weakened glow of the soul.

Perhaps Kyle-sama’s absence is affecting you.

I hope he returns soon.”

“. . .Yes, that’s right. Thank you.”

I don’t know about the glow of the soul, but it was true that Chris and I were weakened.

I can’t sleep, and my appetite is decreasing day by day.

Having met at the age of seven, it was natural for us to be together all the time,

I never thought that we would be so useless without Kyle.

The break time ended, and as we saw Prince Ishra leave the room,

I rested my head on Chris’ shoulder, who was sitting next to me.

I have to get back to work, but I don’t have the energy to continue.

“You don’t have to push yourself. Shall we go back to the private room?”

“No. . . Kyle is doing his best, so I have to do my best too.”

Having said that, I could only speak in a small voice.

With Chris’ help, I got up and returned to the office.

Only the sound of flipping through documents can be heard in the quiet room.

Kyle will be back in a day and a half or two.

Even though it’s just a little wait, every second felt long.
