Morning came, and we quickly left the inn after having a simple meal.

I thought about how I would meet Cid and what kind of expression he would have, but it turned out surprisingly normal.

I was a little disappointed. . .!

I was foolish to expect him to kiss my cheeks or forehead when I woke up.

That’s right, I can’t be caught up in love right now.

Today, there will be a touching reunion, so I have to prioritize Cid’s happiness and give it my all!

Cid looked puzzled as he watched me getting pumped up.

Watch me. I’ll behave like the perfect lover!

“Now, let’s go!!”

I held the reins and led the horse as we headed to Cid’s mother’s shop.

“I apologize for troubling you with my presence.”

He’s so formal.

Even though Cid and I are destined to be together. . .

I pouted and said while looking at the distant mountains.

“I’m not such a narrow-minded woman to think that I’m being troubled. Besides, I just came for a picnic, and Cid just happened to reunite with his mother.”

“The setup is unrealistic.”

That’s right, we just haven’t done it yet. This is still a picnic. So the plans are undecided, and it’s okay to have a leisurely stroll.

After all, I said I wanted to come, so it’s not Cid’s fault.

“But is it okay? Since we finally met, shouldn’t we take our time and talk more?”

When we meet his mother, we are supposed to leave this town and head north immediately. I agreed to it at first, but is it right to brush off a reunion after sixteen years so easily?

But Cid insisted on leaving in the morning. 

His reason was that there must be pursuers after me.

“I’m satisfied already. That I could meet her. . . and that she remembered me. That’s enough. I have a family now, so as long as we know that we’re both doing well, it’s fine.”

According to Cid, it’s strange that there was no sign of pursuers after me in the previous port town. However, since this escape is caused by the prince’s misconduct, I doubt any of his subordinates are seriously chasing after us. 

When the king returns from his foreign trip, I believe he will show leniency. There may be a personal exile for me, but the Duke Marcus’s family will likely go unpunished and the matter will be settled. After all, it would be unreasonable to make enemies with us.

Even now, Onii-sama has returned to the Duke Marcus territory and is polishing magical cannons and magical guns in a mansion that looks like a giant fortress. I hope the royal family sees it as a relief that they’re not being fired at the castle.

“Until Vi-sama’s safety is guaranteed, I can’t stay here for long. As long as we’re alive, we can meet again someday, so it’s enough for now.”

Cid had a relieved expression as if a burden had been lifted.

Things don’t always go as planned, but I think his smile is the greatest reward.

We took the same route as yesterday and hurried along the path to the bento shop.
