“Who is Jehard?”
“Why? He is a relative who lives in the corner of the countryside.”
“Where’s this countryside?”
“At the western end of the Empire… Why are you even interested? It’s a hillside where we’ll never go.”
Cyan and Ciel are fraternal twins.
Although they are their father’s children from a second marriage, it is no secret that the head of the family loves his second wife more than his first wife. Such a reality has made the noses of these two 13-year-old boys and girls high enough to reach the sky.
“His name is…”
“Eugene. He has the same age as us.”
“Hey, age doesn’t define a friend.”
He continued, looking toward the detached house in the distance.
“I heard it’s the first time he had ever been to the Capital. According to Gordon, earlier, he couldn’t even take his eyes out of the window throughout the time he was in the carriage.”
“That’s understandable. I heard he is from Gidol. Did you know that place is so far away that no one even bothers to remember? I think that place is only full of forest and fields.”
“I don’t know because I’ve never been there, but it’s probably because it’s the country. Did he get motion sickness on the warp gate?”
“Gordon said he looked like he was going to throw up.”
“I guess he didn’t vomit then. Oh, that’s a shame. If he had thrown up, I was going to order him to clean up his own mess.” Ciel said with a mischievous smile. At her sister’s answer, Cyan clicked his tongue.
“You idiot, he doesn’t have to throw up to clean it up.”
“What do you mean?”
“He came from the countryside, and for sure his body’s gonna smell like cow dung.”
“He had been on the wagon for a few days, and the smell of cow dung from his body must have left traces on the wagon.”
“Oh, it’s dirty.”
Ciel stuck out her tongue and looked disgusted. However, her eyes were full of mischievous playfulness.
“The carriage he came from is the property of the family. Even if we are related, he should take responsibility if he defiles the carriage because of himself.
“Yes, that’s right.”
“I heard that earlier. As soon as he got to the annex, he went to the ballroom and wielded a wooden sword.”
“That’s the worst.” Ciel chuckled a laugh.
The twins born on the same day have been a good match since they were young.
“It’s his first time in the capital, and it’s his first time in the main house. That’s why he is so nervous.”
Ciel bursts into laughter as he slaps his brother’s arm. However, Cyan made a solemn expression.
“Our stupid relative. He must have high expectations for this blood ceremony. He didn’t get proper education from his father.”
“Now, he pretends to be training to show off in front of the adults. He is such a disgusting guy.”
“You have to scold him directly.”
“Oh, it’s a little too much to scold. It would be best if you didn’t do that. Rather you should be careful. Don’t get scolded by adults later.”
“You’re too nice.”
Ciel smiled back even though she knew his brother was inside. The young twins learned from the very beginning that it was more interesting to do something stealthy than to do something openly.
Cyan took the lead with a strong shout. Ciel, who was following closely, turned his head back. The two twins, carrying out mana since childhood, could perceive them even with the naked eye.
In the magnificent mansion, a boy was standing by the window on the third floor. He slid back and closed the curtains when Ciel had eye contact. At sight, Ciel grinned and stuck out her tongue.
