gh the glasses. 

 

She didn’t know it at first because glasses covered it, but when she looked at it, she realized that it was a beautiful face.
He looked a little weak, though.

 

‘I don’t know what it is, but it’s nice to hear it because he has a good voice.
I think it’s good that I ask questions about his interests, and he speaks well.’

 

The boy, who was in the midst of talking about his favorite philosopher, coughed when his eyes met Luce.

 

“Cough, oh… I’m sorry, I kept talking to myself.
Cough.”

 

“No, it’s fine.
It’s good to hear, but by the way, you should drink something.
Do you want me to give you this?”

 

He coughed and nodded, pointing to a green liquid. 

 

It was a suspicious liquid.
It was thick, sticky, and smelled of strange herbs.

 

Luce asked cautiously, waiting for the boy who drank the strange liquid to stop coughing.

 

“Hey, I’ve been curious.
What’s this?”

 

“…Ah.
It’s my medicine.”

 

“Medicine?”

 

Luce, who had almost reflexively asked whether he was sick, stopped.

 

‘Mom said that when she was taking care of dad, the things he hated most were when people asked him where it hurt and if he was getting any treatment.’

 

Why should they know where it hurts? It’s not like they can fix it.

 

Luce didn’t say anything because she thought that he might just talk about his wounds if she didn’t ask for anything.

 

Instead, Luce thought about what she could do.

 

‘No matter what illness he has, he needs to eat well in order to get better.’

 

When she looked outside, it was already dark.

  

 

Determined, Luce got up from her seat.

 

“I’m going home for a moment!”

 

Luce ran out the door before the boy could stop her.

 

*****

 

‘I wonder if I made a mistake.’

 

The boy sat quietly in the house where Luce had left.

 

It was familiar to the boy to be left alone.
But nevertheless, it was a little difficult for him to see an empty seat today.

 

The boy remembered what had happened earlier as he took turns looking at Luce’s plate of cookies that she hadn’t eaten yet and the seat she was sitting in.

 

‘Because I keep telling her boring stories? I coughed while I was eating?’

 

No matter how much he thought about it, only mistakes came to mind.

 

He lowered his eyebrows.
Probably was the one with the most mistakes.

 

‘She knows that there was no house in this location a week ago.
Could it be the wizard’s magic to manipulate memories didn’t affect that child? Maybe that’s why she left as soon as she realized the truth—.
Anyone would think it’s suspicious.’

 

The villagers of Xenon had doubts about the boy who suddenly appeared, but they didn’t have any doubts about the house that suddenly appeared.

 

It’s because the wizard has manipulated people’s memories.

 

The wizard said that changing people’s memories about a person has a lot of variables and settings, so he only changed people’s memories about the house.

 

“It doesn’t seem so strange that someone moves into a house that has been vacant for a long time.
However, manipulating their memories of Your Highness Prince, no matter how difficult, will cause Your Highness problems.
So you have to pretend to be someone who has been living in the village.”

 

The Emperor, who was standing behind the Imperial Wizard, said sharply as if he was annoyed.

 

“Can that kid do it? It’s obvious that he can’t.
At least that’s something that can be used to change the memories of the house.
Couldn’t it have just been thrown away?” 

 

The Empress, who was beside the Emperor, answered without looking at the Prince.

 

“Of course, Your Majesty is generous enough to help out.”

 

And she added.

 

“Please get rid of Aurelio as soon as possible.
Your Majesty, this seat is very uncomfortable for me.”

 

So four days ago, the boy came to Xenon Village.

 

He closed his eyes, and when he woke up, he was standing above the magic circle on the second floor of this house.
It was easy for him to come here, but he could not return to the Imperial Palace.

 

Being treated coldly was a familiar thing for him, so the bullying of children was tolerable.

 

Because he had red eyes, people always pointed at him, so he was used to hearing people whisper.

 

But it took the boy four days after being left alone to realize that he didn’t know why he was so lonely.

 

It was the first time a boy who usually knew how he felt couldn’t figure out what to do.

 

Bang bang—!

 

A knock broke the silence.

 

“Hey, open the door!”

 

It was Luce’s voice.

 

“This is a really good mushroom stew that my mom makes.
It’s delicious.
It’ll be perfect for dinner.
So eat this and take your medicine.”

 

His answer was smiling brightly before his eyes.

 

A girl with a bowl of fragrant milk-scented stew stood in front of the table.

 

At that moment, the house, which he didn’t know was empty, felt full.

 

“By the way, I keep calling you ‘hey.’ What’s your name?” 

 

The boy had never introduced himself.

 

Everyone knew his name, but no one called him.

 

The boy slowly opened his mouth to Luce, who was smiling because it was awkward to only ask his name now.

 

“…Revinas…”

 

Aurelio Revinas Hadassa.

 

“Revinas? I’m Lucette.
You can call me Luce.”

 

“Me too…” 

 

The boy decided to throw the abandoned name.

 

“Call me Rev.”

 

“Okay, Rev, that’s a pretty name.”

 

He really likes the new name that the bright voice says for the first time.

 

Rev thought that maybe he liked the voice that called his name more than his name.
