Thanks Moko, calkch and Levena for your supoort.

As Cyril recalled, Amelia was a 13-year-old daughter of another relative of the Duke of Versenia, a 13-year-old girl who had been a courtesy apprentice at the Duke’s household since last year and because she was the fourth daughter without a fiancée.

For this reason, she was attending the academy of the Toru domain, not the academy of the Capital, so they had little contact with each other, but even if she was ignored, the person on the other end of the line was from a Viscount’s family, so Amelia quietly took a step back to let her speak.

Eva gave such Amelia a victorious glance for a moment, and then she flirtatiously rubbed up against Cyril, who was also known as the Prince of the Sun in the Capital.

“Certainly, let me show you around, Cyril-sama!”

“…I guess. I don’t have any other ideas, what do you think Amelia?”

Cyril thought for a moment and left the final decision to his childhood friend, as if it were a matter of course, and Eva blinked at him for that.

“Well, I think it’s a good idea. That sounds like a good plan, don’t you think?”

Amelia also decided to make a light decision as usual, and Eva bit her back teeth alone as the two of them looked at each other with a smile.

Amelia was a Baronet and Eva was a Viscount, but Amelia’s position was more respected among the nobility in light of her blood relation and contribution to the Duke’s family.

Eva, who had not received such an education, ignored Amelia simply because of the difference in the titles of Viscount and Baron, and when they were traveling in the carriage, Eva sat beside Cyril and talked to him for a long time, but Amelia started embroidering on a handkerchief without saying a word, while Cyril, who could not talk to Amelia, gradually felt frustrated because she could not speak with Amelia.

“This is the place! This is the place where the first demon summoning incident and the second demon summoning incident took place twenty years ago!”

“Oh, right.”

It was the place where Cyril’s sister was kidnapped when she was a child, and although it was now abandoned, there were still remnants of a magic circle, and it would normally be an interesting place for a test of courage, but Cyril replied curtly to Eva’s words, who seemed excited.

Amelia, who was walking a few steps behind them, was poking at the wreckage of the magic circle with her toes, looking just as bored as Cyril.

“…Eh?”

At that moment, Amelia thought she heard what sounded like a faint voice.

The escort knights were not present here because they were waiting near the entrance, as Eva had forcefully insisted that this was already a place where neighborhood children would come to test their courage, and that there was no danger.

“Cyril-sama, I can sense something strange in this place. Let’s go back to the knights as soon as possible.”

“What are you talking about! You don’t believe me when I say that this place is safe?”

“I didn’t mean…”

“O, oi.”

When Eva, who had become impatient because of Cyril’s indifferent attitude, threw a tantrum and released her magic power, a translucent figure emerged from the debris.

“It’s a ghast!”
