The Young Lady Tames the Main Leads - Chapter 59
I guessed so, because I have had a quarrel with my sister several times in my previous life. At first glance, it may seem like a small quarrel in childhood, but the bitter feeling does not disappear easily.
……Just by seeing that I still remembered when I was a child in my previous life.
Anyway, by now, I’m sure Cedric must be blaming himself for losing his sword in an absurd battle with his brother. Had Cedric been a little less simple, he would have noticed that his match with his brother was a ridiculous bet in the first place, but unfortunately, according to Cedric’s personality from the original book and what I’ve experienced, it couldn’t be. Not at all.
‘Obviously, he may be blaming yourself for being a disgrace of a prestigious knight family. It’s obvious even if I don’t ask.’
I nodded slightly and secretly sneaked a side glance at Cedric. I didn’t see the expression that looked depressed like earlier, because he was lying face down on his desk.
‘That’s why it’s no different from the first time I saw it. I thought we socialized well , but, whew……’
When I saw it, I sighed deeply. Cedric, who has a tough and dirty temper, seems to be adjusting to kindergarten well these days, so I felt at ease in my heart. However, seeing that form again makes me feel uncomfortable again.
‘More than that, how can I help you?’
Looking at Cedric, I pondered. I don’t think there’s anything I can do for him right now…
Um… Ah! That’s it!
‘There were Artifacts.’
I remembered the artifact I received as a birthday present from my parents when I had my 4th birthday. Oh well, what does the Artifact have to do with Cedric’s stolen long sword? That’s it……
‘Because an artifact is an object with a function that amplifies the user’s power.’
I’ll lend the artifact to Cedric, and with it, he entices his brother to ask for a match again.
Of course, winning with artifacts is a bit like cheating, but…
He was already cheated.
‘So, this is just getting the stolen goods back!’
* * *
The next day, as planned, I secretly hid the artifact in my bag and brought it with me. No one will know that one of the treasure collections in my room’s jewelry box has disappeared. As I arrived at kindergarten, I secretly watched Cedric, who seemed unchanged, and looked depressed today, then took the opportunity and called when Cedric was about to stand up.
“Excuse me, Lord Cedric!”
Cedric was silent. Well, it’s more like he didn’t seem energetic. Seeing that his eyes were swollen like chestnuts, it seemed that he was wearing a blanket all night and crying. I carefully asked again.
“……Why are you calling me? I will be alone. Don’t make me talk.”
Cedric passed by me, pretending to rub his eyes. But I wasn’t going to stay still like last time. As I quickly chased after Cedric out of the classroom, Cedric stopped and became annoyed.
“Don’t keep following me! Annoying!”
At the next moment, Cedric had a silly look on his face. Silence flowed for a moment, and it wasn’t until a while later that Cedric corrected me,
“……No, not annoying! Don’t follow me anyway. I’m going to sleep.”
As he said so, Cedric opened the door in front of me. The room behind the open door was nothing but a nap space inside the kindergarten. A room with 6 small beds lined up. It was a place prepared for when we fall asleep in kindergarten, but it was a little unfamiliar because it was not used often. The white curtains made of silk covered the bright sunlight, so it was a little dark. Anyway, Cedric took off his slippers as soon as he entered the room and went straight up onto the bed. I shook my head and replied,
“Are you going to stay here? But soon the teacher will come to the classroom for class?”
“Can’t you tell the teacher that I’m sleeping?”
Don’t put it on me!
I shouted like that inside and made an absurd expression. Then Cedric started pretending to be pitiful, unlike himself.
“……I am sleepy because I stayed up all night yesterday. Actually yesterday……”
Cedric wanted to tell me what had happened last night, but he didn’t talk to the end and shut up. I felt like I knew the reason for some reason, and I sneaked a question.
“Did you not sleep and cried yesterday?”
“……What? No way! No… No, hmm, yeah. I cried a little. But what is that?”
It must have been a bullseye. Because Cedric got up as soon as he heard my question and immediately denied it. However, within a few seconds he regained his mind, and he changed his words again. After all, when it comes to Cedric, it was pride. I wanted to play around a bit, so I asked another insinuating question again.
“No way, with a blanket on?”
“……How did you know……! What the hell are you? How do you know what I did yesterday?”
Then Cedric stared at me with tremendous agitation and shaking eyes.
Just like I’m some monster or goblin.
Well, it’s not a bad idea to get looked up to as someone with psychic powers.
Thinking so, I shrugged.
