Haunted Duke’s Daughter C122
“I’m sorry, Alisa, I was just a little sleepy. Can you please get breakfast ready?”
“Yes……..Yes. Thank you.”
Alisa bowed and left the bedroom. Lilia breathed a sigh of relief and began to get dressed.
L–You seem to be wasting your energy, is there a reason for that?
S–I was told it’s useless…….
L–It would be useless.
S–It’s all gone!
There is still something wrong. It could be said to be the same as usual, but it feels a little strange. It feels as if she is forcibly covering up her lack of energy. It’s what people call “empty energy”, I guess.
L–Sakura, what’s really wrong?
S–Hmmm, it’s this mysteriousness that brings out the best in me!
She doesn’t intend to answer seriously. Lilia gives a small sigh and heads for the door.
L–Please don’t hesitate to tell me if you have any questions.
Considering the fact that she doesn’t deny it, there must be something going on. However, it is obvious that even if I ask her, she probably wouldn’t say anything. Lilia felt a little frustrated, but left the bedroom without saying anything more.
After breakfast, I head to the library. Today is a holiday, but perhaps Ray might be there. With this in mind, I came to the front of my usual room, but I was truly surprised to hear so many people’s voices coming from inside.
L–No way, did Ray have a friend? It’s impossible.
S–Isn’t your opinion of Ray a bit harsh these days?
L–It’s just your imagination.
I close my eyes for a moment to think. This room is not really a private room for Ray. It is more likely that someone different from Ray is renting the room today.
Of course, it could be Ray, but there was no need to bother to check. I turned on my heel to go back.
“Ray, you know things, don’t you?”
Voices were heard from inside the room.
S–No way, really, is Ray in this room with someone?
L–It sounds like it. What are we going to do?
Lilia stared at the door for a while, but eventually smiled thinly and shook her head. If Ray has made a friend in the same grade, that’s something to be happy about. There would be no need to come in and interrupt that. Although she felt a little sad, it would be better for Ray to hang out with friends in his own grade. Lilia was about to walk away this time.
“I’m going to get a drink.”
The door opened and Ray came out.
The moment she heard Ray’s voice, Lilia turned around vigorously and glared at Ray.
Lilia sighs and starts to walk towards the exit.
Wait! Wait! You’ve come all this way, please come in!”
Ray grabs Lilia’s hand. She looks back at him annoyed and
“Ray-kun, what’s wrong?’
A girl came out of the room at the same time. When that girl saw Lilia, she said
Her face lit up.
L–What? What’s this reaction?
S–I’m sure this is the girl I met after rescuing Rey, the one who called the crown prince.
L–Oh……That’s the girl.
I had forgotten about her because we had only talked for a short time, but she certainly looked familiar. I didn’t even try to remember because it was so unimportant.
S–Well, since we’re here, let’s get to know this girl.
L–Is that really necessary?
Sakura nodded and Lilia immediately agreed. If Sakura says it’s necessary, she’ll obey. She knew that she shouldn’t interfere with Ray, but since Ray was asking her to stay, she decided to go along with it.
“Aldis-senpai, please come in! Mr. Ray drinks!”
“I’ll get them!”
Ray let go of Lilia’s hand and ran as fast as he could. The fact that the prince of a country is being used as a delivery boy makes my head hurt.
“Aldis-senpai, this way please!”
Lilia sighs and enters the room.
There were four people in the room, two men and two women. On the table there were maps, books, and large sheets of paper. The boys and girls around them were frozen when they saw Lilia.
“Aldis-senpai, come this way!”
The only girl who was not scared of me said without hesitation so I sat down on a chair as she recommended. After that, the girl instructed the other students to line up in front of me in a horizontal line.
I look at the four of them again and the fact that the girl calls me her senior means that she is my junior. Considering that this school has up to three grades and I’m in the second grade, they must be in the first grade. Except for the girl, the other three seemed to be trembling a little, as if they were frightened by me.
L –It’s very awkward, though.
L –It’s nice to be at ease…….
“What can I do for you?”
Lilia asked, and the three of them shuddered. She didn’t mean to intimidate them. She was almost depressed that she was that scary.
“I’ll introduce myself!”
Said the only girl who wasn’t scared.
I wonder what would have happened if this girl had not been there.
“First of all, my name is Liliane. My friends call me Liana now, but when I was little they called me Lilia. I am a fellow Liliane!”
This girl who introduced herself as Liliane is really not afraid of me. This lack of reserve is more than Tina has shown recently. I would have felt uncomfortable before, but now I’m a little more comfortable, since the three of them are looking at me with frightened eyes.
“I don’t mind, but you shouldn’t behave that way towards other high nobles.”
“I only did it to Aldis-senpai. Of course, I don’t mean to belittle Aldis-senpai! I heard from Ray that Aldis-senpai would be fine.”
Lilia nodded, “I see.” I’m sure it will be fine then. However, I think I need to have a little talk with Ray.
