As Evona tries to sneak away, Syxe notices and gives instructions to the knights.
“Put Miss Evona in jail, too.”
Upon hearing these words, Evona rushes to cling to Cecilia’s dress and cries out.
“P-Please! Please forgive me! I will never do such a thing again!”
Cecilia wondered what to do as the knight tried to pull Evona away from her.
“I beg of youuuuu~.”
Evona desperately clings to Cecilia’s dress, trying not to let go.
“I have already gathered evidence of the deception of the Marquis and the attempted assassination of Miss Cecilia. There is no way to save you anymore.”
Syxe made it clear to Evona that she would give up.
Evona began to tremble at these words, but she still hung on.
“Cecilia-sama! I’m sorry! Everything! Because you had everything that I envied you! I wanted it too! I wanted it too! It’s not fair, It’s not fair, it’s not fair, it’s not faaaaaaaaaaaaair!!!!”
Asian-potato (the minimum-wage editor): REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
These words remind Cecilia of her former self.
Why did she put on heavy makeup, as Evona said, and try to match Hubert’s taste?
—It’s because I wasn’t confident in myself and didn’t make my own decisions.
Cecilia regulates her breathing and speaks clearly back to Evona.
“I used to envy your confidence.”
Cecilia said to the stunned Evona.
“As a result, I relied on you. But I now realize that wasn’t the right way to go… to listen not just to one person’s opinion, but to many people’s opinions, and to have faith in myself. It’s difficult, but it’s what I must do from now on.”
To which Evona retorts.
“What the hell are you talking about?! You should have done what I told you!”
“Our paths have diverged, Evona-sama. Please let go of my hand.”
“I-It can’t be…”
Evona hangs her head and lets go of her hand and is taken away by the knights.
As she saw her back off, Syxe gently hugged Cecilia.
“I’m sorry for making you feel scared.”
Cecilia shakes her head.
“We had to confront each other eventually. So, it’s all right.”
She will never go down the same path as Hubert and Evona again.
Cecilia needs to stand firmly on her own two feet from now on.
