He was lying in bed.
He could not sleep. Countless thoughts ran through his mind.
It seemed that Zion had a bellicose personality.
Their gazes met at Philine’s Blacksmith Shop, perhaps because she saw him as prey.
He felt more nervous as the mansion was quiet.
He decided to leave his room.
The light in the drawing room was visible at the corridor’s dark end.
He wondered if anyone would be there.
Lilia was in front of the fireplace.
Although there was an armchair next to her, she was squatting in an awkward posture.
He felt pity for her.
“What are you doing here?”
Lilia turned to him in surprise. Then, she fixed her messy hair.
“Why are you in that position?”
“I’m more comfortable that way.”
He had a hunch there was an ulterior motive.
He pressed Lilia to confess.
She tried to change the subject, but in the end she said it all.
“The…room is too small.”
The two rooms they had assigned to the employees were so full, she preferred to stay in the drawing room.
He could understand her because he had lived in similar circumstances.
“I’ll stay here, so go sleep in my room.”
“What? No, no.”
She shook her hands.
“I can’t sleep anyway.”
He politely pushed the hesitant Lilia into his room. When he returned to the drawing room, he sat in the armchair in front of the fireplace and poured wood to stoke the fire. Posted only on NovelUtopia.com
Finally, he fell asleep for several hours until he heard a woman’s voice.
“Who are you?”
It was not a dream. He woke up and looked for the voice’s origin.
In the dark entrance to the corridor, someone cautiously watched him.
The light from the fireplace illuminated her blonde hair.
It was Luna.
She acted as if she had seen an unknown creature.
He thought he couldn’t use that armchair.
He slowly opened his mouth, he was in a dangerous situation.
“Children are quiet when they’re around you. They’re afraid.”
“At first I thought it was the teacher…I was wrong.”
“But it’s your fault.”
“…What are you talking about?”
“What… the hell have you done?”
He didn’t understand. There were no children here. Besides, this mansion was always silent.
He wondered if this woman could see ghosts.
When he took a step forward, she took two steps back.
She calmly said.
“It’s a misunderstanding. I haven’t done anything wrong.”
She didn’t seem to believe him in the least.
His eyes adjusted to the darkness, so he could gradually see Luna’s face.
She bit her lower lip, then turned and disappeared into the dark corridor.
He was dumbfounded.
She was so suspicious that she didn’t even have a conversation with him.
It seemed like he shouldn’t go near this girl.
The carriages sped away from Rigveda.
He did not see Luna again.
Sylverine, who heard his story, said,
“She is an Elementalist.”
“Do all Elementalists behave like that?”
“No, Luna is a bit special. It was hard for her at first.”
All those children were spirits. He never imagined there were so many spirits there.
“I think she’s a strange girl.”
“Yes, there are many stories.”
“Your natural enemy is an Elementalist, how can you fight an invisible opponent?”
He really couldn’t do anything against an Elementalist.
Now that he thought about it, Luna had said they hated them.
“Don’t I have a way to fight spirits?”
“You have to gradually increase your affinity with spirits. You should get a spirit artifact as soon as possible.”
“My tasks never end.”
He had to remember not to disturb the spirits.
