As Lumina steps quietly into the small old church behind the school, she murmurs softly.
“God…Did I do something wrong? Is that why you are so mean to me?”
Lumina looked at the stained glass windows, which were lit up by the sun, and held her chest.
Tears trickled down her cheeks.
She didn’t want to shed any more tears for Stephan, but she had loved him for too long, and her heart ached.
——I can’t take it anymore.
——I want to disappear.
——I want it to end.
——I wanted to live a life where I could be loved this time, find someone who would love me, but God is mean and won’t let me.
The desire to end it is growing and growing.
“I should just run away.”
——If the loop lasts forever, I will probably start over anyway, but until then, I’m free.
Sharon said he would love her, but she couldn’t think about that now.
——Let’s run away.
As these thoughts ran through her mind, Lumina felt her mood brighten more and more.
——Yes, that’s it. I should just run away.
Lumina left the church and went back to her house.
She heard that her father was working and her mother was having a tea party today, so only the butler and the maids were in the house.
The maids were perplexed by Lumina’s unexpected return, but she looked so happy that they couldn’t say anything. They tried to help her change her clothes like they usually do, but Lumina politely said no.
Lumina goes to her room, packs her jewelry and other belongings, dresses simply, puts on her hat, grabs her bag, and leaves the house.
The chief butler was in a hurry to stop her, but Lumina smiled and said,
“I’m just going out for a short while. I’m a little tired of the queen’s education.”
The butler is silent when she is told so.
“I’m going to go to the lakeside villa to clear my mind. I’ll be back.”
“Then at least wait until I call the master.”
“Ara, it’ll be dark by then. Fufufu. I’m going.”
The butler stopped her, but Lumina didn’t care. She got into the carriage and told it to drive to the duke’s summer residence outside the city.
The carriage starts moving and Lumina opens the window to feel the breeze and exhales.
“It feels good. I’ve never felt anything like this before.”
Lumina was rocked into the carriage, knowing that the engagement would be broken off and looped again in a few months. Until then, she is free to do whatever she wants, on her own.
