The Third Easter Prince returned to his country soon after, so I didn’t have the opportunity to meet him face-to-face .
“He showed a special interest in Lei, but that doesn’t mean that he kidnapped her because of that interest . ”
That was the unanimous opinion from the adults . I don’t believe that I was kidnapped because he liked me or was curious about me . I wonder if he became more interested in me because he failed to kidnap me in Wester .
It ended with the people closest to me being more vigilant .
But I want the adults to think more about Easter’s purpose since they’re backing the Prince . I believed this, but I felt like it wasn’t a toddler’s job to tell them what to do, so there was nothing I could do in the end .
I have fun every day and cherish my family . That’s how I spend my days . It’s fine for me to spend my days like that .
Like before, I spent the afternoon with Nico, morning and night with Otou-sama and days off with Nii-sama .
However, it was a big problem for Nico to lose an energetic playmate . He’s bored while I’m napping . Therefore, he wanted to do more things .
“Lei still naps a lot even though she’s turned two . ”
“I thhinw I nap weshsh . ” (I think I nap less)
I argued back . I certainly still fall asleep after lunch . But I’m sure that I play more when I get up .
“You’re right Lei . But look at this . ”
Nico looked proud as he wrote something on a slightly biggish piece of paper . For some reason, Odds-sensei looked proud .
There was a graph on the paper with the date on the horizontal side and the time on the vertical side .
I looked a bit fed up .
“I was really bored when we first came back from the northern fief, so Odds-sensei asked if I wanted to learn how to tell time . ”
It was certainly difficult for a genius three-year-old to tell the time . Oh, he’s four now .
“So then, I recorded how long you slept and stayed away after you went home . I drew up the entries like this, and look . ”
“Loow ath whath?”
“The time you sleep increases and decreases, but it doesn’t change much throughout the whole graph . ”
Nico spoke proudly without realizing that I was grumpy, then he puffed out his chest with pride .
“So, you aren’t sleeping less, but you play more since Albans comes late to get you . This paper over here has the times that Albans comes to pick you up . ”
Nico is smart and I think this is a good way for him to learn the basics of numbers . I can also see that Odds-sensei is proud of Nico but, “Ith’sh noth powithe tho meashure a wady’sh shweeping thime . ” (It’s not polite to measure a lady’s sleeping time)
“Buffo . ”
That last laugh was probably from Hans . Geez .
Nico looked around, wondering where the lady was then suddenly realized .
“Lady?! Yes, yes, Lei is a lady . Hmm, if she says she is then she is . ”
“You can’th record your friend’sh shweeping thimesh . ” (You can’t record your friend’s sleeping times)
“I see . I’m sorry,” Nico apologized, frankly .
“Then what should I record next? This is pretty fun . ”
“Hmm . ”
Even if Chris isn’t here, he replaced the time with something else . Nico casually said to the lonely me, “Just like how you have Luke, Chris has Felicia . I’m sure Felicia is making Chris study since she’s a serious person . ”
“Ai . I’m shure shhe ish . ”
I pictured Chris sulking .
“Now, Lei . Let’s play until Albans picks you up so that we don’t waste time while you’re awake!”
This is a child’s job .
The seasons have changed, and the rainy season that occurred before summer is here .
“Even sho ishn’th ith raining thoo much . ” (Even so isn’t it raining too much)
I wonder if I hadn’t noticed this because I was in Wester last year . I went back to the mansion and watched the continuous rain outside the window .
“No, it’s raining more than usual this year . It’s a bit depressing when the rain continues like this,” Natalie explained without changing her usual expression . She didn’t seem depressed at all, but she probably felt down .
“Ith’sh thime tho pway in thhe mud outhshide . ”
“In the mud?”
I guess I can’t . I glanced at Natalie .
“Then shall I make some play clothes that can get dirty for you? I need to get in touch with your designer group . ”
I didn’t know there was a group like that . I decided not to ask her about it and looked out the window .
A carriage surrounded by Rug Dragons came running in past the gatekeepers . Did something happen at the castle since Otou-sama is home?
“Nathawie woow . ”
“What is it? Oh my, isn’t that Graces? He’s wearing the special forces uniform . ”
“Ith doesh woow wiwe thhath . ”
Then that is not the so-called enemy . I was sort of relieved .
“I’ww go tho thhe enthrance . ”
“Lei-sama, you can’t . You will be summoned if it is something . Even if he’s a guard, he’s in such a hurry, so I’m sure there’s trouble . ”
Usually when we were at home, Hans rests in the evening since he’s not expected to serve as a guard then . Hans, who was supposed to be resting, banged on the door, quickly entered then locked the door from the inside .
“Hans, what happened?”
“I don’t know but it’s noisy at the entrance . I determined that it was better to stay by Lei-sama’s side since we don’t know anything . ”
“Alright . Come, Lei-sama . Wear this jacket, keep quiet and don’t move no matter what . ”
“Ai . ”
I obediently put on the jacket and sat on the sofa . Natalia and Hans quietly waited for someone to tell them what was happening .
“It’s Jude . Lei-sama, can you help us?”
It’s not a sign to move . It seems they need my help with something . I nodded at Hans .
Hans softly opened the door .
“It’s Felici0sama . She took Chris-sama with her and fled from Easter . ”
“And you need Lei-sama for?”
“We thought she would calm down if she saw Lei-sama . ”
I stood up .
“I’ww go . ”
It’s finally my turn .
