“What is this place. . .?”

When I opened my eyes, I was in complete darkness.

There was no one around.

I blinked my eyes, but I still couldn’t see anything in the darkness.

Was I asleep?

What time is it now? Why am I in such a pitch-black place?

. . .Me?

Who am I, exactly?

Wait, what about my job? What about school? How have I been living all this time?

My head feels fuzzy.

But there is no discomfort, and the silence is strangely comforting.

“Well, whatever.”

There is nothing inconvenient, neither cold nor hot. I can just stay here.

I closed my eyes and spent the empty time sitting.

It felt like I’ve been having a long dream until now.

Sadness, joy, it feels like there were many waves in my heart.

I forgot.

“Well, it’s fine. There are so many things I don’t understand.”

Now, I just want to spend my time quietly here.

As I was thinking that, I heard a sound of someone knocking on the wall and a voice.

[. . .La! Ara!!]

I want them to leave me alone.

I’m already tired.

However, I knew that someone was trying to come to me without hesitation.

――Mekimeki. . .!

I heard the sound of something breaking.

It sounded like forcefully prying or peeling something hard.

A faint light began to reach the back of my eyelids, and I frowned.

I want them to leave me alone already.

I don’t like it.

The hassle, losing something, running away.

. . .Running away?

What was I running away from?

A question suddenly arose in the depths of my heart. 

Wait, am I forgetting something important?

[. . .La! Please do it for me?!]

A strong voice of a man.

I probably know this voice.

“Cid.”

That’s right.

Why did I forget?

The person I love the most in the world.

Longing for, suffering for, finally being able to get close to the person I love.

“Cid!”

[Viara!]

When I opened my eyes, there was a small hole right in front of me. It made a cracking sound as a wall-like structure crumbled away.

Am I trapped?

Huh, what is this, it’s scary!!

As soon as I realized it, a strong light shone in and I squinted my eyes.

―Baki. . .

“Kyaaa!!”

A person’s hand?!

Suddenly, a person’s hand came in through the hole in the wall. 

And it was covered in blood.

“This is a horror show!!!”

At that moment, the wall collapsed all at once.

It crumbled like sand, disappearing without a trace.

“Ah. . .”

In front of me, Cid was there, with his bloodied arm extended towards me.

As we looked at each other, we sat down on the floor.

Unable to move due to astonishment, the hand that wasn’t covered in blood tightly embraced me.

“Viara. . .I’m glad.”

Cid buried his face in my hair and let his right arm hung down limply.

His voice was so poignant that I held my breath.

“Cid. . .? What happened to your arm?”

I tried to recall the vague memories. I remembered Noah-sama coughing up blood and being enveloped in black mist.

Seeing that my thoughts were scattered, Cid whispered in my ear. 

“The black mist released by Noah turned into a cocoon and enveloped you Vi-sama. . .I destroyed it.”

“What!?”

“?! That’s why. . .! We need to get you treated quickly!!”

I panicked and tried to wriggle free, but Cid wouldn’t let go of me.

“I couldn’t control it properly, so I ended up damaging my own arm too.”

“You did that?!”

Cid weakly laughed and his words were choked with pain.

“I couldn’t control it properly and ended up destroying my own arm.”

Oh no! What a tragic situation!

“I’m sorry Cid. . . I can’t believe I was thinking about staying there and sleeping while you ended up like this. . .”

Tears naturally overflowed from my eyes.

I’m such a terrible person. I was being crushed by regrets.

“But you came back.”

“That’s because Cid saved me. . .”

“I just opened it. If Vi-sama’s consciousness had been swallowed by the curse, even if you were released, you wouldn’t have awakened.”

Looking up at Cid with teary eyes, our faces were so close that our noses touched.

“I heard Cid’s voice. I couldn’t hear it clearly, but it reminded me of Cid.” 

As i said that, he looked back at me with a very gentle gaze.

“I’m glad.”

“What did I say?”

“. . .”

Huh, he’s not answering anything.

Cid, who embraced me again, relaxed and entrusted his body to me.

“Cid?”

“. . .”

Seems like he’s remaining silent.

As I gently stroked his unexpectedly pleasant black hair, I felt his tense energy dissipate, and the atmosphere became gentle.

Then, there was a sharp sound of footsteps.

“What do you mean by ‘[We’ll be together forever, right?]?’ I haven’t given you permission for your marriage yet.”

“Onii-sama?!”

Onii-sama, who had become tattered but not as much as Cid, stood beside us.

On his back, he carried the unconscious Noah-sama.

“Really. . .To shamelessly say something like ‘[I’ll give you my life and magic, so come back]’. Well, you were quite a sight in your half-crazed state.”

“Ethan-sama, you have a bad personality.”

Was he saying such things?

“Oh, and you also said ‘[I love you the most in the world]’.”

“Die, you despicable head of the family.”

I’m starting to feel more embarrassed than the prince himself.

Onii-sama sighed and readjusted Noah-sama.

“Cid, I’ll call your mother. Wait a moment.”

“Yes.”

“Can’t you give a proper response?”

Onii-sama, with a look of exasperation, headed towards the exit with a slow pace. 

He left after saying, “Don’t touch Viara.”

“”. . .””

The room fell silent.

If you look closely, you can see shattered sacred staffs and scattered ceiling bricks that have fallen and broken into pieces.

I gently moved away from Cid and checked the condition of my right arm.

“Oh my. . .”

My right arm was completely black, and the bleeding was severe. It was a gruesome sight that would make anyone faint.

Since it looked painful to touch, there was nothing I could do.

I had no choice but to ask cid’s Okaa-san to use healing magic on me.

“You can’t use healing magic yourself?”

Cid had healed my wounds before. When I asked why he wasn’t doing it now, he awkwardly smiled.

“Actually, I can only heal with my dominant hand.”

“Eh?!”

I didn’t know. 

Cid says, “I’ve never told anyone myself because it makes me vulnerable.” 

“Ethan-sama knows and only a few of our guys know.” 

“I see. . .” 

“I couldn’t bring myself to tell Vi-sama. I’ve been like this since the age when I wanted to appear cool.”

Wanted to appear cool, huh?.

For me, it’s still the coolest thing ever.

I snuggled my face against his shoulder.

“Thank you for helping me.”

As I gazed at my painful arm, I murmured.

Cid clenched his teeth and smiled at me, trying not to worry me.

“Did you fall in love with me all over again?”

“Yes. In fact, I’m so head over heels for you that my bones are melting and I’m worried about osteoporosis.”

Rather than falling in love again, I’ve been in love with him for a long time. But I can’t say it. 

“What’s this ‘kokkoshoo-shoo’? Is it like salt and pepper? A menu at a bento shop?”

I definitely don’t need such a menu.

But still, my arm was in a sorry state.

I must find a way to get it healed.

“Cid. . .”

“Yes.”

“I’ve never regretted not being able to use recovery magic as much as I do today.”

I felt like my stubbornness and reliance on my Strong Style had put Cid through a lot of pain.

If I were a saint, I could have healed him right away.

Even though my tears had just dried, Cid, seeing my face on the verge of crying again, showed his usual carefree smile.

“Is that so? I’ve never been more grateful to have two arms than I am today.”

Cid tightly embraced me with his left arm. As he stroked my head, I naturally closed my eyes.

“Since my left arm can move, I can still hug you, Vi-sama. So please don’t cry.”

“Ugh. . .”

Looking up at Cid with a tear-streaked face, he gently pressed his lips against my cheek.

He buried his face in my long hair and pressed his eyelids against my neck.

It felt like he was savoring our feelings up until now and conveying them to me.

I hugged Cid back, and a strained voice squeezed out near my ear.

“Ah, it’s finally over.”

“It’s over, huh?”

I murmured absentmindedly as well.

There will probably be various aftermaths, but I think Onii-sama will handle them well.

The order to capture Cid has been revoked, and I. . .what will happen to me???

Oh, will I be exiled from the country? 

But if Prince Roque is disinherited, I might be able to escape without any consequences?

Wait, then I’ll still be Duke’s daughter.

Can I marry Cid?

A slight uneasiness welled up in my chest.

However, Cid asked me with a happy expression.

“When should we have the wedding?”

But can we even get married?

I wonder if Onii-sama will allow it.

“Well, if Viara can convince him through tears, it might work out.”

“Yes, leave that to me.”

Yeah, it’ll be fine.

It should be less difficult than breaking off the engagement with Prince Roque.

Above all, if we were to be torn apart now, it feels like we would cause a riot because we love each other so much.

And by “we,” of course, I mean Cid.

“Ouch. . .”

Finally, the pain became unbearable, and Cid frowned.

“Are you okay? You’re not okay, right?!”

I wanted to switch places with him.

But I didn’t know any magic like that.

It must be so painful right now that it’s difficult to stay conscious.

Seeing me fretting, Cid spoke with a serious expression.

“Vi-sama, I’ll divert your attention because your arm hurts too much.”

“Huh? Uh, okay.”

Before I could finish my response, our lips met.

Using only his left arm, Cid firmly pressed me down so I couldn’t escape.

“Mmm. . .! Wait. . .!”

“It’s impossible.”

If it might worsen the injury, I can’t even resist properly.

He pushed me down onto my back, and my back hit the floor.

Is this helping to distract from the pain?!

We exchanged kisses repeatedly, to the point where I could barely breathe.

And it continued until Onii-sama came back and kicked Cid away.
