The spiderwork used to sew up Lord Montyver’s wound seemed to have consumed a large amount of magical energy.

It seems I collapsed due to the sudden loss of magical power.

After that, it seems I slept for three days, causing a lot of worry for many people.

Among them, I wonder if Florenci was crying.

That’s what I thought, but he seems to have calmed the disturbed Marchioness with a resolute attitude.

“I was really surprised. Ren said, ‘Okaa-san is fine. She won’t do anything life-threatening.'”

For three days, he never left my side no matter what anyone said, and having confirmed that I had awakened, he was now sound asleep beside me.

The words that it was okay seemed to have been words to reassure himself. Now he was sleeping with complete peace of mind.

“Leon also wanted to come to see you, but it seems the doctor stopped him.”

It seems that a letter arrived from Lord Montyver, expressing concern about my condition.

“While you were asleep, various things happened.”

First, it was decided to reinvestigate the incident involving Irma.

Based on the deposition obtained from Prince Ghodrove, it seems that an on-site investigation was conducted at the Marquis family’s place as well.

Irma was poisoned and then abandoned in a lake with a weight attached.

It seems the intention was to sink her to the bottom of the lake, but after leaving the scene, the weight seems to have come off. As a result, the body was discovered the next day.

“Lara, if you hadn’t questioned Irma’s death, I wouldn’t have noticed her regret.”

The moment I held the trembling hand of the Marchioness, a single tear trickled down.

“From now on, I will live with Irma in my heart.”

“Yes.”

The Marchioness’ eyes were tinged with sorrow. But it wasn’t the dimness without hope or anything else like before. I thought I could see hope in her eyes, as if she were trying to live for her as well.

The Marchioness will be alright now.

What should I do from now on?

My threatening uncle has been arrested and seems to have been handed over to Vulcano.

International crime is a serious offense. Probably, he will never be able to leave the prison cell again.

Aunt Romina and cousin Sonia also seem to have entered the convent.

Therefore, even if I return to Vulcano, I don’t have to worry about being threatened by them.

There’s no need to falsify my name or status in Binemöer anymore.

But when I think about parting from the people who were kind to Florenci and me, it feels like my heart is being torn apart.

I’ll stop thinking. I need to rest well now and get better.

Yes, that’s what I told myself.

🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸

I was strictly punished for falsifying my identity and age when entering Binemöer.

However, given the circumstances of being targeted by my uncle, it was judged that there was room for leniency, and only a fine was imposed.

I was nervous about how much money would be demanded, but it turned out to be about a month’s worth of salary.

After making the payment, I would part with the name Lara・Dosa.

Florenci also went back to his original name.

When I confessed everything to the Marchioness, she was displeased, saying, “I wish you had told me sooner.”

Since Rachael, who knew the situation, also apologized with me, I wasn’t scolded too much.

Florenci seemed to regret parting with the name Ren, but when I suggested we call him that as a nickname, he nodded happily.

After various problems were resolved, I was going to meet Lord Montyver for the first time in a long while.

It was the first reunion since the day Prince Ghodrove was detained, so I was strangely nervous.

I had been worried for several days, but in the end, I decided to return to Vulcano.

My uncle’s family won’t harm us anymore, and it would be better for Florenci to live in the mansion where he was born and raised.

I’ll keep my feelings for Lord Montyver as a good memory in my heart.

I planned to part with him without any lingering attachment.

I invited him to the cottage, but on the way, Florenci said, “I’ll study at the Marquis’ house!” and left with his tutor.

Everyone was planning to relax and have tea, but. . . . . .

I didn’t expect to meet him alone, so I was even more nervous.

At the promised time, Lord Montyver arrives.

“Hi, Lara.”

“Leon-sama, are yo. . . . . .”

Before I could ask if he was okay, he ran towards me.

He hugged me with all his momentum.

“Lara, I’m sorry! And thank you!”

“W ,What are you thanking me for?”

“There are many things, but maybe the most is that you told me you liked me the night I was injured.”

“Ah――!”

I remember now.

That night, thinking that Lord Montyver was unconscious, I had let my feelings slip.

My confession had been transmitted clearly to him through the magical thread that Ga-chan had connected to Lord Montyver.

I had no idea he was conscious. . . . . .

“At that time, I was wondering whether to carry out the strategy the next day. The doctor, said that if I didn’t rest, I would die.”

But after hearing my confession, he says, he decided to carry out the strategy.

“I wanted to resolve the issue quickly and be happy with Lara.”

As soon as I heard those words, tears flowed from my eyes.
