With the outrageous remark uttered by Rchan, the water inside my mouth spurted out to spray in front of me .
Rchan is smiling in front of me .
While I’m coughing violently, Eric and Shelka stood flabbergasted as their mouths opened .
I feel the same way . Just when did I kiss Rchan .
Even if physically, our age is not that far apart, but mentally, our age is so far apart from each other .
Even if we’re talking physically, I think that for a seven years old boy and a four years old girl to kiss is problematic .
Furthermore, the other party is the daughter of the Duke’s House . It can’t even be a joke .
Just when did I kiss Rchan, really . www . ihavesinnedtranslation . com
I don’t have a clue .
When I was having a cold sweat desperately trying to search my memories, Shelka began to move .
「……hey, is that true? Ranna?」
You’re just kidding right? Her expression seems to say that as Shelka asks Rchan .
To that, Rchan answered with a natural smile like a flower blooming .
「Er, that is――」
「Y, you!1 To do such a thing against such an innocent girl!?」
Just when I’m about to deny it in a hurry, Eric points his finger at me and shouts as he blames me .
With such a loud voice, the opportunity to defend myself decreases by one .
Darn it, this kind of thing will get troublesome the later it gets, so I have to assert myself early .
「You, is that really true?! If that’s true, then I won’t let you off!」
Maybe Shelka got affected by Eric’s words, the corner of her eyes twitched as she flared up in anger .
There, it became complicated already .
I answered frantically to Shelka who grabbed at my chest . www . ihavesinnedtranslation . com
「I didn’t do it! I didn’t do something like that!」
「But, didn’t Ranna said it herself!?」
「Calm down, it’s the words from a four years old kid alright? There’s got to be a misunderstanding somehow . 」
To persuade her, I talk to her slowly .
When she heard that, her hold loosened for a moment but then she said something that made my body trembling all over *wanawana* .
「In other words, you’re making excuses to get away with it right!?」
「Why did it become like that!?」
「What a character you have there! Are you still a man!? I misjudged you!」
「Mou, you shut up! You’re just making this more complicated! Rchan? We didn’t kiss right?」
I ask Rchan very calmly . www . ihavesinnedtranslation . com
I understand it . You just want to keep your appearances up, don’t you?
And then, Shelka and Eric’s gaze are gathered on Rchan .
On the other hand, Rchan released a new bomb .
「But, Al did it?」
Rchan tilted her head, as if I just asked something obvious .
Eric was about to say something that will make things complicated again, and I’m about to deny it in a hurry, but Shelka grabbed at my chest and shook my chest with such force that I bit my tongue . www . ihavesinnedtranslation . com
「Y, yo, you ! You did it to Rchan!? Is it true!? Hey!? Answer me!」
Shelka screams hysterically, but I’m still feeling so much pain because I bit my tongue so I can’t answer her .
「Wa, wait . If you shook me like that . . . . . . . I can’t speak!」
Maybe she was surprised hearing that, Shelka slowly released her hands .
「 . . . . . . . . quickly say it . 」
She’s no longer looking at me as if I’m a criminal .
I said this while I’m fixing my clothes .
「First of all, I didn’t kiss Rchan . Hence, I’m going to ask some questions to dispel this misunderstanding . 」
I came near Rchan, while I lowered myself so that we were at the same eye level .
Rchan doesn’t appear to understand the seriousness of this matter, she smiles happily .
「Rchan? Did we kiss at the day when we first met each other?」
「Un, that’s right! It was funー!」
Her twintails sways, as she answers enthusiastically .
「Un un . It was fun wasn’t it . But I wonder when did we specifically kiss?」
When I ask her while smiling, Rchan’s face seems to look sad as she look straight at me with upturned eyes .
「Eeh? Did Al forget it? Al looks like you want to have a taste so I gave it to you . . . . . . . . 」
At that moment, I can hear the metallic sound of a knife and fork being picked up behind me .
I can feel a throbbing bloodlust around my neck .
. . . . . . . . darn it, it’s fine I just get away from here right . www . ihavesinnedtranslation . com
C’mon, Alfried . You have teleport right . If you use it, you can just take it easy back at home .
That thought crossed my mind .
Not good, this is not good . If I were to run away here, then I don’t know what I’m going to do later on .
I’ll properly settle this misunderstanding and then go home .
Remember it, me . At this rate, I’ll be branded with a crime of coaxing others to kiss me .
Was there something that I would like to have a taste of from Rchan that day . .
I met her on the south main street, got thirsty . . . . . . . . . .
…………ah, no way, could it be that thing?
「By any chance, was it Rchan’s vegetable juice?」
「Un! That’s right!」
Right here, Shelka and Eric can’t seem to keep up with our conversation, that the hands holding the fork and knife become rigid .
「……what does it mean?」
「I’ll explain it, so why don’t you return those cutlery to the table for now . 」
「Ara, how thoughtless of me . 」
She returned the fork and knife back to the table with a wry smile . www . ihavesinnedtranslation . com
Seeing that, Eric also returned the cutlery like her .
Good grief, these rascals . How relieved I would have felt if I could have passed it off as a joke .
At any rate, I talk to Eric and Shelka who have calmed down and feel like listening to me now about the time I encountered Rchan in the royal capital in detail .
「What the . . . . . . . . . so it’s an indirect kiss huh . . . . . . . . 」
Feeling relieved, Shelka held her chest as she took a deep breath .
「The heck . . . . . . . why don’t you said so from the beginning . 」
「That’s because you said some unnecessary thing that the talks get complicated . 」
「But isn’t indirect kiss also considered a kiss?」
「A kiss is when one’s lips meet another . So it’s completely different from an indirect kiss . Indirect kisses are not worth mentioning . Nevertheless, it is also not something that you should do casually you know?」
「Eric . Let’s leave this side to Shelka and let us go . 」
「Right . If we’re staying here any longer, then they might ask a terrific question . . . . . . . by the way,is there really no more mayonnaise?」
A misunderstanding because of a little girl . www . ihavesinnedtranslation . com
And so, the curtain closes as Shelka frantically and continuously answered Rchan’s question - the cause of this incident .
× × ×
A room inside the mansion of Duke Ringrande .
The room has quite a lot of high-class furnishings placed inside, and the flame from the small chandelier unreliably illuminates the room . www . ihavesinnedtranslation . com
In fact, it is actually more convenient to use magic tools, but the owner of the room made it this way .
In the middle of the said room, a girl is sitting on a luxurious chair .
She stroked her glossy red hair, sipping her steaming tea while listening to some report .
『――those are summarized in the documents . Please refer to the documents for the details . Either way, I wonder if this person is the one that oujou-sama is expecting . 』
The voice came from a person whose whole body is wrapped in a black outfit, but one can tell she’s a woman at a glance from her curves and graceful figure even if one did not hear the voice .
She was reporting in a detached, matter-of-fact tone while kneeling on the ground
『Furthermore, it seems that Lazareth’s company has been moving very actively these days . It is likely that something new will be made again . It is currently under investigation . 』
「……really, thanks for your hard work . If you find something again, please inform me immediately . 」
The girl put down the cup of tea and answered .
Carefully without making any *kachari* sound .
The woman in black clothes gave a short reply after hearing that, and then she smoothly rose up towards the ceiling and disappeared .
There are certainly no sounds that can be heard from the ceiling, but it is unknown where she disappeared to .
She also took the documents in a natural manner .
Suppose that the girl manages to sense her, then that woman would immediately be displaced .
Otherwise, she won’t be able to work as agent at all . www . ihavesinnedtranslation . com
「……fufufu, I wonder if I should come to tomorrow’s party or not . It looks like I’ll be able to meet interesting people . 」
The flame from the small chandelier mysteriously shines on her smile .
