“What are you doing right now?”


It was a red-haired knight, who was standing next to the girl.


“What is wrong with you? Let go of me!”


Atticia frowned at once as she shook off her hand.
No, she was trying to shake it off.


However, of course, there was not even a slight movement in the hand that she thought would fall off.
Atticia was surprised and looked at the knight.


“I-I told you to let go!”


“What are you doing to my daughter?”


Only then did Baroness Bordeaux step up.
Her previous stance of standing by and watching the commotion was nowhere to be seen.


“Just what kind of matter makes you think you are entitled to do this?”


“I grabbed her on the grounds that she was making suspicious gestures.”


“Suspicious gestures?”


“No, Mom! I was only going to take that mask off because it looked stuffy!”


The knight looked at Atticia with an absurd expression.
The old maid who was next to the Baroness hurriedly stepped out.


“Knight, please let go.
The Madam is Baroness Bordeaux.
And the person whom the Knight is holding is the Lady of Baron Bordeaux, who is the Madam’s daughter.”


It was a certain status.
Baroness Bordeaux thought that the knight who knew her status would definitely step down and apologize.


“Before I hear the explanation, I can not just let it slide.”


However, the knight spoke in an unchanged attitude.


Even if she was rude like this….”


The Baroness, who bit her lips, looked around anxiously and shouted at the employee who just in time met with her eyes. [Read only at travistranslations.com]



“What are you looking at? You can’t quickly stop it?”


She was an employee who didn’t know what to do since the commotion broke out.
The employee, who got attention, closed her eyes tightly once and carefully opened her mouth.


“Excuse me, Knight.”


Serafina looked at the employee with a cold face.
The terrified employee said as if she hoped for her to calm down.


“Th-the thing about letting go….”


There was nothing good about the interference of the employee, who was just a commoner, in the quarrel between the nobles.


But she knew that she couldn’t stay still when the Baroness, who was deathly pale, was glaring at her with her two eyes.


Serafina talked nicely.


“Step back.
This is not a matter for you to intervene.”


However, Atticia wasn’t like that.
Atticia pressed the employee.


“Quickly get rid of this crazy person!”


“About that, Knight, please calm down a bit, and….”


“Step back.
If you also have eyes, you would have seen it clearly, though.”


When the employee hesitated, Atticia shouted again.


“I didn’t do anythi…! Ah! It hurts! It hurts!”


When Lord Serafina gave strength to her hand, Atticia screamed again.


Atticia’s maid, who was unable to do this or that while being terrified, ran somewhere.
At a glance, Serafina pushed the employee away.


“Stand back.”


As the cape went up together at her movement, there could be seen the household symbol which was attached on the inside of the cape.
The employee’s face turned pale.


“Lady, what should I do….”


Looking back at Diana, Serafina paused.
Serafina threw away the wrist which she was holding.




“What are you doing!?”


Atticia dropped down as she was screaming, and the Baroness, who grabbed her falling daughter, shouted sharply.


“It’s done.
Let’s go now.”


Serafina, who blurted out, wrapped Diana around with her cape and turned around.


“You! Where are you going!? Aren’t you going to apologize right away?”


“Baroness, stopping here and going back is….”


It was when the employee, who approached hurriedly, was helping Atticia that–




There was a sharp sound.
Diana, who was buried inside the cape, poked her head out in surprise.
The employee who covered her cheek couldn’t raise her head.


“Who do you think you are stopping right now?!”


It was Baroness Bordeaux.
Without any time to take action, a sharp wave sound rang again.
Then Baroness Bordeaux, who was gasping, raised Atticia up.




“Haven’t I told you to be careful in the Imperial Capital?”


Baroness Bordeaux patted Atticia.
Then she glared fiercely at the employee and left.


The gazes which were looking, as if they were sightseeing, also moved away little by little.


Looking at the mother-daughter while grinding her teeth, Serafina looked at Diana.


“Are you alright?”




Her white complexion gradually returned to normal.
Diana took a deep breath and exhaled.


“It’s okay.
More than that….”


Diana’s gaze headed toward the employee who sunk down.
There was a deep wound on her cheek that started to heat up red, as the Baroness had hit her with a ring on.
It seemed like it would leave a pretty big scar.
The blood which came from the wound fell down her cheek, and, tuk, dropped to the floor.


“Are you okay? The wound on your face…”


Diana, who was approaching, stopped at the feeling of something hitting at her feet.


Looking down at the floor, there could be seen the gloves.


The thin silver thread, which was decorating the back of the hand, was cut off, and the jewel, which was connecting grain after grain to the silver thread, could not even be seen.


Blocking Diana, who was trying to pick up the gloves, Lord Serafina picked it up.




“Oh my.”


Lord Serafina and Diana groaned.


The stamped footprints were clear on the light blue gloves.
Lord Serafina shook her head.


“It can’t be used.”


“What should we do with this?”


“Maybe that employee will have to compensate.”


Diana looked back at the employee.
The employee, who had her head down, saw the gloves and eventually burst into tears.


“I was only away for a moment….”


At the voice which she welcomed, Diana looked back.




“But, what had happened in the meantime?”


It was a cold voice.
