Did you mean Teresa?[Next] Mile Chapter 127: Current situation
「What, is this …?」 (Marcella)
Despite saying that, Marcella know it was some kind of letter.
She received the bamboo stick that seemed like a letter…
And, first of all, turned inside out … There is no sender’s name.
However, Marcella was aware.
The voice that whispered those words from outside the door.
And, somehow she is familiar with these three people.
With her memory she knew that she saw them somewhere before, but from something that aren’t real human.
And she runs the full rotation of 『Adel Simulator』 …
「Lower intelligence to Adel level, subtract common sense and the ability to read the mood, and multiply the ditziness by 5 … 」
When Marcella runs the simulator, Monika and Orianna keep looking at the three girls of Red Oath.
Suddenly, Marcella protruded her right hand to an empty space next to Maevis.
Monika and Orianna are startling because they don’t know what’s going on.
And the space where there should be nothing distored, a shadow that shaped the person appeared. And Marcella grabbed that person’s collar.
「Hii~i!」 (Monika, Orianna)
Monika and Orianna raise their voice as they are startling.
「I knew you were there!」 (Marcella)
「Why, why …?」 (Mile)
Marcella is having a proud pose before the completely miserable Mile.
Monika and Orianna eyes become rounded looking at what happen.
Mile has already canceled the transformation magic by optical manipulation.
She is also returning to her original face and silver hair.
However right now, she has face like witness an un-believe-able thing.
In any case, Nano-chan should have blocked everything perfectly, such as sounds, smells, signs and so on.
That’s why she thought it was absolutely impossible for her to get caught!
When Mile thought so, Marcella calmly replied.
「… Why? isn’t it obvious?
That’s because you are Adel and I am Marcella.
Do you really think that I can never find you?」 (Marcella)
While Marcella saying all that, tear start accumulating in the outer corner of her eyes.
And Marcella hugged Mile tightly .
Following after Marcella, Monica and Oliana also hugged Mile from the left and right, and started crying .
Looking at that, Maevis feels like crying and somehow Rena is pouting while inflating her cheek.
And even while hugging miles with overflowing tears, Marcella still observing Rena’s expression on the side.
(… they are our rivals, aren’t they) (Marcella)
As for Mile, she just keeps crying without noticing anything.
Actually she feels like there’s something scary happen. Maybe that was Pauline again.
「… so what is the situation after I ran away …?」 (Mile)
Finally everyone calm down, it’s time for information exchange.
For the time being, Marcella answered on behalf of 3 people while Mile kept the soundproofing and vibration blocking barrier.
「We got some connections with the royal palace, and we got quite accurate information.
First of all, it’s quite hard to say this.
Adel, your father has passed away.
It was the punishment for killing your mother, grandfather and trying to take over the Askham family by driving out the only legitimate successor that was you Adel.
Even with just one of those three crimes, it would be enough to sentence him with death.
In the end, he was sentenced death 3 times, that’s why his death sin couldn’t be avoided whatever he has in defend.
Well, the advocacy have no one raise voice defend him anyway …
And, Adel, your father was married in your family, he had no formal inheritance right. Even more, he was already executed.
Thus Adel was officially succeeded Askham family.
And by the order of his majesty the king, until you, the rightful heir comes back and take over the reigns in the Askham territory, a royal magistrate will take care of the administration for the time being」 (Marcella)
After heard all that Mile just nodded.
Because that man is the blood father of Mile. Marcella was somewhat considerated for Mile, she had a painful face while telling mile his death news, but Mile wasn’t concerned at all.
Although she wasn’t officially heard. She could still get that result after detailed analysis Adel’s memory before and after awakening. She had judged that probability was quite high.
Adel didn’t have a lot of memory or good memory about that man before awakening.
There’s no feeling or anything.
No, if there was anything, he is the bad guy who killed her gentle mother and grandfather. He and his family also abused Adel before her awakening.
For Mile, that man was just that kind of person.
After all, for Mile, her only real father is the father that teached her about the nautical Mile in the previous life.
「… Is that so … How about the other people and the Askham family?」 (Mile)
Marcella continued the explanation, although she was surprised a little by a straight Mile.
「Your mother-in-law also got punished by her sins.
Other people that was found guilty of having accepted bribes or not fulfilled their duties accordingly, were also punished」 (Marcella)
「Then, my sister-in-law, what happened to Prissy?」 (Mile)
「Oh, that girl.
Everything was done by her parents, her behavior was a problem but that’s not a sin. His majesty had pardoned her.
However, such a young girl who lost her parents and also lost her identity, you can somehow know dark her future is.
She was consider taken to the monastery. But the parents from your father family want to save her. They can’t save their son nor they feel like want to save him. But their grand daughter can still be save.
Your Majesty also allowed that.
Apparently our country was blessed with a merciful king.
Your sister was no longer aristocrat, and had no right to succeed.
She is now just a commoner, I wonder if she can grasp that kind of happiness …」 (Marcella)
「I’m glad…」 (Mile)
Although she was bullied various, after all it was just a child’s harassment, it wasn’t serious enough to be punished.
As Mile knew that she was going to have a proper life without having get serious punishment, Mile reluctantly leaked such words and smiled happily.
(After all, Adel is such a person. That’s also why she became our friends! ) (Wonder Three)
(Mile didn’t hold grudge against anyone…) (Red Oath)
The old and new friends thought about similar things.
「And then, Adel-san, you are the successor of Askham family.
Right now, you are the Ascam family owner, Adel von Askham.
A royal magistrate is taking care of the administration your territory with the order of his majesty the king. But you already come back, you can take over the reigns in the Askham territory if you want.
So what are you going to do…」 (Marcella)
「Well, the errands in this country are over, so let’s move to the next country soon!」 (Mile)
「Oh!」 (Rena + Pauline + Maevis)
With Adel’s sudden words obstructing her story and the other girls also stand up, Marcella can’t help but surprised.
「Wha, wait, wait, where are you going!
Monika, stand up in front of the door!
Orianna, block the window!
Hey, don’t you run away!」 (Marcella)[Next]
