Chapter 24: Lumentium XIII (part 2)

I could feel it…the heartbeat. 

And after that, what I had to do was very simple. If I could gather all the aura left in his body and stimulate it vigorously as if to pressurize his heart—


It was said that a person who had lost consciousness would come to his senses like this. I didn’t know the detailed principle, but it was one of the uses of the Flowing Star that the Princess who taught me in the past timeline. She told me was a first-aid method that could be used in an emergency.

Well, it was only a half first-aid method that could only be used for someone who had lost consciousness and collapsed like this.

“Ha, ha, ha, ha…”

Lucian took long strained breaths with a pale complexion, as if his heart had been pressed quite hard. He looked around and soon realized that I was staring at him in silence. He opened his mouth with a bewildered expression.

“…Cain von Estel. Did you really wake me up?”

At Lucian’s words, I quietly nodded.

“Yeah. You were lying on the floor and being a nuisance, I woke you up to stop bothering others.”

“…why did you wake me up?”

To Lucian, who looked at me with a bit of resentment and said something stupid like that, I replied, “Why, why? The heir to a high-ranking noble house is sleeping on the floor of the banquet hall like a drunk, and no one can touch him. I woke you up so that you won’t bother others anymore.”

At my kind explanation, Lucian stroked his temple once and looked at me with a blank face.

“That’s it. I was defeated by you.”

Saying that, Lucian muttered in a quiet voice, keeping his eyes on the banquet hall, which was already in a dilapidated mood.

“Anyway, it seems like a lot of time has passed since we had a duel. Cain von Estel, you are right. If I have been lying in the banquet hall unconscious for such a long time, I must have been quite a nuisance to others.”

Lucian slowly raised his body while making remarks that were quite cool. But when he said that with his swollen right cheek, it didn’t look that cool at all.

“Then, I will be taking my leave. Cain von Estel. I will make sure to repay you for waking me up. Until then, stay safe.”

Leaving such a cool line, Lucian turned around.

“Hey, wait.”

“…what is it?”

Lucian expressed doubt and turned to look at me. 

Without saying a word, I took some gold coins out of my leather pouch and put them in his hand.

“…what is this?”

“Should I say it is a courtesy to my fellow noble? Or should I say amercement? Or you can think of both, but you take it anyway.”

“…I don’t know what you mean, but are you insulting me?”

An insult? What embarrassing things was he talking about? The fact that I gave him the gold coin was an act of pure goodwill. I was able to earn quite a lot of money thanks to Lucian, so I gave him some money thinking that it was not a good idea to send him away without giving anything in return.

To be honest, he looked a bit pitiful.

“Ha, unwanted sympathy is also a kind of insult. Please remember it.”

Even as he said that, he put the gold coin in his pocket. Then he let out a sigh for no reason, turned around, and disappeared outside the banquet hall.

As expected, an attitude full of sincerity was not for this world. I mean, look, even that an idiot just left without saying anything else to me.

As I was breathing a sigh of relief at the thought that I had finally gotten rid of the nuisance, someone tapped me on the shoulder. When I turned my head slightly, I found Ariel looking at me with her the enigmatic smile on her face.

“Then I guess I really should go. We’ll see you next time. Cain. Bye.”

Saying that, Ariel bowed to me and soon disappeared from the banquet hall.


And as I stared at Ariel’s back, I suddenly felt a bit doubtful.



“That woman, don’t you think she’s being a bit too casual with me?”


Aria tilted her head as if she didn’t understand what I was saying. 

However, watching Ariel’s back as she walked away, a certain thought came to my mind.

‘I really hope she doesn’t…’
