“. . .Did you sleep?”

“Ah, Princess and I have hardly been able to sleep for these past five days.”

“So that’s why Chris is so tired.”

“Well, that’s right. Since Princess tried to replenish with her magic,

I was channeling my magic, but. . . the difference in magical power was too great. . . I couldn’t fully replenish it.”

That can’t be helped. Even for a royal, Sofia’s magical power is on a completely different level.

Chris’ magic alone is not enough.

“Shall I heal you?”

“No, I’m good for today. It will recover enough once I sleep.

I might ask you if it doesn’t fully recover.”

“Understood.”

Usually, Chris heals Sofia, and occasionally I heal Chris.

Because of the difference in magical power, overusing healing on Sofia causes discomfort in Chris.

After Sofia falls asleep, I secretly heal Chris.

I was doing this because I thought Sofia would worry if she knew.

“. . .By the way, Kyle. Why are you also worn out?”

“. . . . . .”

“No matter how hard the carriage journey was, it doesn’t look like that.

Haven’t you been sleeping either?”

Chris saw through me after all.

Well, with this lack of sleep, it would be apparent.

“Five days ago, right after leaving the palace, I thought Sofia might be angry.

I couldn’t help but worry.”

“Yeah, she was really angry.”

“Then after that. . . I felt like she was crying.”

“She wasn’t actually crying, but she looked like she might.

She was quietly working, but everyone around her was looking worried.”

I thought so. I figured she’d be angry about being left behind,

Especially since we’ve never been apart for so long.

I was worried that she might be crying because I wasn’t there.

“So that’s why Kyle is also sleepless and worn out?”

“Yeah. I kept worrying about how Sofia was doing and couldn’t sleep.

But. . . it couldn’t be helped that I left her.

I really didn’t want her to get close to that tower again.”

“I understand. That’s why I approved it.”

Sofia said she wouldn’t see the tower in her dreams anymore.

But if we had to go to that tower again, it would bring back unpleasant memories.

Responsible Sofia wouldn’t think of leaving it to us.

So I forcibly left Sofia and went alone.

I don’t regret that, but

I made her look so worn out.

She’s fast asleep, but there are dark circles under Sofia’s eyes.

I didn’t expect the impact to be this significant even with Chris channeling magical power,

I wonder how much she forced herself to work despite not feeling well.

“So, was there any problem with the tower?”

“No. I looked around the tower as well, and there was no sign of anyone entering.

Kokodia may have inspected the magical barrier wall, but it seems they didn’t notice the tower.”

“Well, it’s a little away from the wall.

Even if they notice the tower, they’d probably think it’s a watchtower.”

That’s probably right. Even if they discover the tower, they can’t enter.

An old, old tower with only two small windows. No sign of people around.

No path even suggesting human passage.

They must think it’s an old watchtower no longer in use.

“Was there any change?”

“No, because Sofia said she stopped having dreams about the tower,

I thought there might be some changes after all.

But it looked almost the same as it did back then.”

“I see. . . It might have been a psychological problem with the Princess.”

“Perhaps.”

Where did Lilia, who said she had left the dream tower, go?

Did she just vanish?

According to what I heard from Sofia, it seemed like she was heading somewhere.

Lilia, who has finally been freed and become independent.

I hope she finds happiness too.

“. . .We have to make sure we don’t have to rely on the magical barrier wall anymore.”

“Yeah, I’ve had enough of things like this time.

Supporting the Princess all by myself is impossible, no matter what.”

“There won’t be a next time. It’s not just me.

I realized once again that Sofia needs both me and Chris.”

It’s painful to see Sofia’s face like this when I’m not around, but somehow it’s also pleasing.

It’s proof that she thinks my existence is important.

But if it wasn’t me who was gone, but Chris,

Supporting Sofia, who is undoubtedly growing more exhausted day by day,

It was a realization that relying solely on my own strength is still impossible and that I felt powerless.

Either one of us isn’t enough.

Without both me and Chris, we can’t fully support Sofia.

She’s carrying something that big.

“I know. I’ve been saying that from the beginning.

I can’t do it alone. But you alone won’t do either.

We need the Princess, and the Princess needs us.”

“Yeah, that’s right.”

Sofia, not letting go, firmly holding both our hands,

We slept as three, nestled on either side of her.

When it’s morning, I’ll apologize once again.

I’m sorry for leaving you two behind.

And I promise not to ever go off alone like that again.
