a craft or some kind of lighting.

 

Convinced that much, Luce said playfully.

 

“But don’t ignore my knock for too long.
I’ll knock on the second-floor door if you don’t come out after knocking for a while.”

 

“I didn’t ignore it… I’ve been waiting.
sorry.
How many times do you knock for a long time?” 

 

“Well, since I knocked 8 times today, it’s exactly twice as many as 16 times.”

 

“16 times.
Okay.
I will keep it.”

 

Luce thought as she saw Rev, who made a serious promise to a trivial joke today.

 

He’s a friend she can make fun of.

 

Rev was a friend to tease and a friend to feed.

 

She doesn’t know if it tastes good to him or if it’s because Luce is looking at it, but he ate Chelsea’s food well, unlike when he ate a cookie the size of a span.

 

It was a bit slow, though.

 

Luce smiled warmly as she saw her polite friend, who always politely thanked her and returned a cookie in return for the bowl he ate.

 

‘That’s why you say that wherever you go, you’ll be able to say hello in between.
I feel proud just watching you eat.’

 

Rev’s eyes, which were drinking green medicine after the meal, remained in Luce’s hands for quite a long time.

 

“Oh, right! I’m here to talk about this.”

 

Luche, holding the flyer, coughed.

 

“Rev, the time has come.”

 

Rev tilted his head at her serious tone. 

 

“What do you mean the time has come?”

 

“It means the time has come to show off your coolest side to this Rodante estate.”

 

“My coolest side—?” 

 

Rev, who had an expression that he didn’t understand the situation, was cute. 

 

Luce smiled and unfolded the paper.

 

“The Rodante Festival held once every three years! Let’s go to the competition together.”

 

Rev took the flyer and started to read it carefully after Luce grabbed it and opened it halfway.

 

Rodante Festival is held on the side of town for two days.

 

Anyone can enjoy the festival, but the main event is from 13 to 17 years old.

 

Reading the flyers, Rev’s eyes stopped at the competition’s theme.

 

“…Luce, it’s a great competition for you, but I don’t think it’s for me.”

 

At this point, being humble seemed to come out of him like an instinct instead of a habit.

 

Luce waved her hand.
Who would go out if such a smart kid didn’t participate in a quiz contest?.

 

“You’re not under 12 or over 18 years old, are you?”

 

“Of course no.” 

 

“Then that’s enough! I can assure you, there’s no one better than you in this estate.”

 

Rev seemed to think for a long time at the firm answer.

 

As Rev’s silence grew longer, Luce fell into thoughts at the same time.

 

Is it because he’s afraid of losing? For smart kids, exams can be burdensome.
But my goal is not to be number one. 

 

The prize money is also a prize, but she thought it would be fun to watch the festival together.

 

She thinks that if she says she’s going with Rev, Chelsea will let her stay out a little longer.

 

Luce leaned slightly and whispered.

 

“I actually want to watch the festival with you, Rev.”

 

She took the flyer that Rev was staring at and saw his expression.

 

Rev’s ears were red as he blinked when she said she wanted to go with him.

 

“I think it’s going to be fun.
We’ll buy delicious food, and we’ll see the Rodante estate.”

 

“….”

 

“Well, it would be nice to participate in the contest and win the prize!”

 

Rev, who was looking at Luce with a smile, lowered his gaze.

 

“It won’t be difficult for you to win the prize, Luce.
But I.”

 

“Ey, what do you mean?” 

 

Rev, who was fiddling with the back of his neck, looked up at Luce’s words.

 

“If you don’t like it, you can say no, I can go with Dominic.”

 

Dominic, the boy with the scar on his face.

 

He could tell that Luce was speaking with consideration for him.

 

She said it was okay, but her face was full of disappointment.

 

But somehow, he felt sick when he imagined Luce eating something delicious with the boy and smiling happily while looking around the village.

 

Rev opened his mouth.

 

“No.” 

 

“Ung?” 

 

“Let’s go together, Luce.”

 

Luce, who was folding the flyer, was delighted.

 

“Really? Will you come with me?”

 

“Ung…I’ll work hard to prepare.”

 

“What are you getting prepared for? You just need to show up!”

 

She waved her hand and threw the flyer in the trash, happy that Rev had let her. 

 

Luce didn’t know.

 

The letters left on the leaflet, which had been folded and unfolded repeatedly, were and .

 

Needless to say, what Rev saw was the latter. 

 

‘…Luce said I was the coolest person.
Luce knows me well, but do I have such a thing?’

 

Rev’s mind was suddenly complicated by the & Miss Rodante Contest> but he laughed a little as soon as Luce waved her hand excitedly.
