Anyway, now back to the Stayle and Arthur scenes in the (first) Celebration Arc. Again, naming the scenes according to chapter. The following excerpts do not contain the entire chapter. (You'll have to wait until the translator reaches this point to read the whole chapter, or TL it yourself.) (Arthur POV) 352. The Knight is Amazed Spoiler When Prince Cedric went out, he quietly looked around to check that there was no one else. I wondered if something was wrong, and when I was a little cautious, Prince Cedric called me again. I turned around and involuntarily both I and Stayle corrected their posture. Then Prince Cedric bowed to us ... "For my repeated rudeness ... I'm really sorry ..." Suddenly, I and Stayle were speechless. Perhaps because his nose was crushed, even Stayle couldn't say anything about it, and I was also stuck with my mouth open. It's true that I was suddenly apologized to, but it's also because Prince Cedric's face turned brighter than before. I don't understand why the blush for Pryde-sama is still bright red even for me and Stayle. Yet, Prince Cedric continued to apologize and thank us for a long time without stopping. He gave apologies and gratitude to me who protected Pryde twice, thank you for the warning from Stayle, and nevertheless still help in the defense battle, all from one to one thousand. It was a feeling like being broken. It's a big deal just to be bowed to by the Second Prince, but if he apologizes so politely, I won't know what to do. "... hey, is this the same story with my sister and Tiara ...?" Stayle, who remains stunned, just moves his mouth and asks. Then, Prince Cedric explained by covering his bright red face with one hand, saying, "It includes this content, but not all." As a result of studying various things in the past month, he seems to have noticed how much he disrespected Pryde. ... Rather, I was wondering why a member of the royal family didn't know until now, and conversely, why he had only started studying now, but for the time being, I was surprised that Prince Cedric would change. "It's unsightly ... I'm very sorry, but when I remember my ugliness, I'm overwhelmed with shame ... I know it's a shame to ask with such a complexion as a member of the royal family ..." No, it's not a big deal compared to his actions one month ago. Though I thought so, I couldn't say it, and when he looked back at Prince Cedric, Stayle replied, "No ... Thank you for your kindness ...". I'm not sure about the evaluation of Prince Cedric again. Prince Cedric quietly asked Stayle to shake hands with a blazing face. When Stayle responds, he asks me to shake hands. I thought it would be rude to wear my armor over my hand, but he clasped my hand without worrying about it at all. "His Highness Prince Stayle, I know for the first time a wise man like you, and Deputy Captain Arthur, for the first time a brave and strong man like you .... I sincerely respect you. It's no wonder that Pryde is proud and wants to be with you. " … Somehow, I was praised very much. Moreover, Prince Cedric's red-burning eyes were straight toward me and Stayle. It was the same when I tried to persuade Pryde and when I cured King Lance's illness, but I think it's amazing that this person can really say that without hesitation or embarrassment. I mean, what is this person whose face isn't red now? When I was embarrassed and my face got hot, Prince Cedric thanked me, "Thank you for your continued support," and I hurriedly returned to it. I finally understand that it meant that I could understand it by talking about Pryde. "... What do you think of my sister?" Stayle opened his mouth. Prince Cedric made two big blinks at the word ... then softly laughed. "She is a great benefactor. For the rest of my life, I will not be able to raise my head to her. And ... she is a precious person who is superior to anything else." … For some reason, I am strangely convinced by the word. After replying a word to me and Stayle, I was stuck in words. Then, Prince Cedric led us into the hall, saying, "I'm sorry to have kept you outside for a long time, let's get inside." "Thank you for taking the time to spare. Please keep in touch with my brothers for a long time." He is also gracious and polite, and I and Stayle respond accordingly. Somehow, I really saw a different person from a month ago. Greetings to the other knights, Prince Cedric turns his back on us. The moment when I suddenly lost my mind and tried to exhale quietly. … And as I remembered, Prince Cedric turned to us again. "That's the story," he said, and looking back, Prince Cedric hid in me and Stayle to care about his surroundings. "Someday I want to be closer to you, Princess Pryde ... and Prince Stayle. Perhaps it will cause trouble. Please do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you. " He thanked not only Stayle but also me deeply, and this time he went to say hello to the other knights. ………that. What do you mean? Now. To be closer to Pride and Stayle ... Does that mean that the alliance has been strengthened? No, it seems that it was strangely meaningful, such as annoyance or the occasion. After thinking so much, I felt unpleasant and looked back, and Stayle was screaming again. I hide him with my body in a hurry so that it can't be seen by other knights, but some knights noticed and turned to me. My father and Clark are also very impatient to see this. "Hey, Stayle! What's wrong?" "He wants to be close to my sister ...?" The voice that I suppressed and the voice that echoed from Stayle overlapped. I couldn't hear it well, and I listened back, but it wasn't the second time. Instead, the glass Stayle held was cracked because it was gripped too tight. Gradually, Stayle was mixed with murder, and while there were a lot of knights, this became dangerous without a joke, so when I half yelled in my ear, "I'll listen later, stop now!", he finally noticed it. .. Even after calming down, he said "No ... but the other party is the Second Prince ...!" "There's no problem with his identity ..." "But the disrespect at that time ..." "Mostly, he ... no, but now ..." I was worried about his muttering when he was in conflict. I don't know what he didn't like, but if I need to, I'll ask after the celebration. If I hear it now, I'm sure he'll get angry again. I couldn't hit his back in an official place, so I collected the glass that couldn't be drunk from anymore from Stayle. When I had it replaced by a maid nearby, I was compared with the glass. ... the criminal who broke it is completely being blamed on me. (Pryde POV) 360. The High-Flying Princess Comes True Spoiler "Congratulations on the promotion to Knight Captain, Arthur‼ ︎‼ ︎" Immediately after Stayle teleported, I and Tiara jumped at Arthur. Four days ago. After being told by Captain Alain about the duel between Arthur and Captain Harrison, Stayle rushed into our room before noon that day. Immediately after visiting the room, the reaction was just like three months ago, and both I and Tiara were amazed. What's more, I was even more surprised when I said to Captain Alain and Captain Colm behind us, "Did you know?" Arthur's promotion to Knight Captain of the 8th Division. Arthur has renewed his reputation as the youngest in history twice in the Knights. This time, he was promoted to the Knight Captain, surpassing even the record of the elite Colm Colm. There is no doubt that Captain Karam himself said that Arthur would be the first to become a captain in his teens. Both I and Stayle immediately decided to go to Arthur to congratulate him ... but Tiara suggested it there. "Let's make a surprise this time! " A surprise that had been a disaster when Arthur was promoted to Deputy Captain. Both I and Stayle were in great agreement with Tiara's proposal. Of course, Captain Alain and Captain Colm. ...... Well, it was conditional. "Really, really congratulations Arthur! It's amazing to be promoted to Captain in only three months!" "Congratulations! My sister and brother were very happy! I'm very happy!" Congratulations again while hugging Arthur together with me and Tiara. I imitated Tiara's waistline so that Arthur wouldn't suffer like last time, and jumped into Arthur's chest. Two people can put their strength into the arm that has been turned tightly. When I saw Arthur's rounded expression at the moment of jumping in, I thought it was a surprise success, and I was happy. Finally, I was able to congratulate Arthur properly. Thinking so, gently loosen your arms Gyu, ... When I thought about it, Arthur hugged me and Tiara as we were. I was hugged strongly with his strong arms like a knight and held my breath for a while. When I looked up with my chin raised a little, Arthur closed his eyes strongly, burying his face in our hair. "... Wow ... I wanted to meet ..." The arms that hugged us were even stronger. Arthur's expression, which seems to be a little tired, has returned and I think he's still in good shape. Captain Alain told me that the Captain's duties are starting today, and he'll be stuck for a day, but I think he was busy with the equivalent paperwork. Looking up at Arthur, who looks into my face at a close distance, I lifts my hand around his arm and gently trace under his closed eyes with my fingertips. ... Yeah, it was good. I don't have a bear it. "We also wanted to meet, Arthur." I laugh at Arthur, saying I'm sorry I couldn't go to see you. Arthur's eyes, traced under his eyes, slowly opened. And He turned bright red as if boiled suddenly. At a stretch so that you can hear the sound. When he let out a voice I didn't understand, "Oh! Oh! Oh ... ⁉︎", He let go of my hands at a speed that I couldn't even see. ... what should I do, he's really upset. Arthur stepped back while wandering his gaze, and made an excuse while quivering his lips, saying, "Sorry, I'm sorry ... I don't think about it now ...!". It's true that he hugged Tiara with all his might, but it's natural to panic because he hugged two royals himself. Both I and Tiara laughed at Arthur's dismay, and after looking at each other, I finally turned to Arthur. "It's okay. It's not between us and Arthur." "I, my sister, and my brother love Arthur!" Arthur, whose face was bright red, said, "No, but ... Princess ... I'm old, too ...", but it seems that he is still worried about the year before Tiara's engagement. With a bitter smile at Arthur, who is still polite, he looks back at Stayle, who has teleported everyone and the food behind us. The surprise was successful and he laughed happily, but as soon as he met me, his gaze shone at Arthur. "There isn't a knight's room that's been visited by three royals, isn't it? Thank you, Arthur." "That's right! Pryde-sama! Why in my room ⁉︎" Arthur looked up at Stayle's words. Stayle shakes his shoulders and begins to laugh. (Stayle POV) The Adopted Brother Gets It Spoiler ... I thought the mystery was finally solved. At that time, I felt that there was something about Pryde being made to cry. And the remark of Pryde and the rushing Tiara changed it to conviction. "No! She's not talking about Brother's cookies right now! ︎ ” The fact that she says now means that I had a lot to do with it. Since it was Pryde, she probably made sweets in the extra time after cooking for Arthur. I can guess that much lightly. … At the same time, I get angry about being unable to eat it. However, it was when I tried to regain my mind that I shouldn't carry over such annoyance forever to celebrate Arthur's promotion. "... Hmm, actually ... I was planning to give this to you at the end ..." For some reason, I'm nervous about Pryde who laughs as if she was a little shy. The feminine gestures and smiles made the palpitations faster. From the flow of the story, the contents of the package can be guessed. Still “……… Regent work, thank you for everything. From me and Tiara.” The Pryde that gently laughs makes me wonder at the item that she personally offered. Neither Pryde nor Tiara know that I have begun to work in parallel. No, there shouldn't really be any reason for them to celebrate me that she wanted to give this to me at the time of Prince Cedric's picking. I refused Pryde and opened the package on the spot without being able to stand it. I don't want to be seen upset, and I'm desperately trying to fix it, but I'm sure Pryde, Tiara, and Arthur are out of luck. When I opened the package, a soft and slightly sweet scent drifted. With that alone, the smiles of the two people who were supposed to be in front of me passed through my mind, and I was excited to expect. Lightly put my finger in the mouth of the package and open it so that I can easily see the inside. ... there was a cookie that imitated a cute, smiling boy. Many of them. How much trouble was it just to make one? What's more, if I take one and take it out of the package ..., ... No. It may just be my oversight or self-esteem. However, the more I see it, the more it "Isn't it your face?" Arthur's words suddenly made me enthusiastic. When I turned around, Arthur was sticking his face right next to me and looking into the cookie. Does it look like that to Arthur? I couldn't say much about it, and when I looked back at Arthur silently, he looked at my face and laughed happily, saying, "It looks a lot like that." As my face gets hotter, I put the cookie back in the wrap and pick another one. My face changed a little, but it was my face that laughed. Even the glasses are reproduced in detail. "I had a lot of time, so I tried baking a lot. I'm sorry if it's too much, but I'm glad if you can eat it while it's delicious." No, it's impossible to eat⁈ Tiara nods with a cheerful Pryde and a smile, desperately suppressing the words she wants to say in the back of her throat. I don't feel like eating sweets that are so cute and shaped like my face. Not knowing how to answer, Tiara laughed next to Pryde, saying, "There are so many, so it's okay to eat one or two." That's plausible, but I still hesitate. However, if I continued to be confused as it was, I was just wondering if Tiara would make the same proposal as the previous sweet bread, so I had no choice but to pick one. A crispy, good sound is transmitted to the teeth, and the more I chew, the sweeter it spreads in my mouth. When it passed through my throat and I soaked in the afterglow, there was still a tickling sweetness in my mouth. "... It's very delicious .... Thank you very much." ... I'm so happy to receive a gift on a day when nothing is happening. The moment I thought about it, I suddenly remembered nine years ago. When I put my strength into the back of my throat, I suddenly hit my back and retracted at once. Looking back, I'm laughing at this as Arthur understands. As soon as I met my eyes, I smiled happily. "It's a waste to eat everything." Arthur, who shows his teeth and laughs, understands that it is completely read. A little frustrated, I picked up another cookie from the package and threw it into Arthur's mouth. Arthur, who makes a funny voice saying "Nga⁈", becomes silent as soon as he puts a cookie in his mouth. It kept making a crunchy noise, and when I looked into Arthur's face, his round blue eyes were shining. "Isn't it delicious?" I'll be proud to say it. My mouth is pulled up without being aware of it. When I laughed at Arthur, he screamed and then said, "It's delicious." (Pryde POV) 365.1 And Hands it Over Spoiler "Eh ... I have something to do ...⁈" Arthur was standing like a stick lined up beside Stayle, with his eyes rounded. He was surprised that he had already received such a treat, and I'm glad I prepared Arthur's part. Tiara unwrapped it from my basket and handed the last one to Arthur. Arthur smiled and received the package from Tiara who shouted "Please!". I'm really happy with the eyes that return words to Tiara, thank you. He reached for Tiara to stroke her head, but soon after he noticed that the Knight Commander and Deputy Commander were watching, he silently withdrew. Tiara also noticed it and laughed funny. After that, Arthur stares at the package he received, and ... notices. "... that. My stuff ... only the address ... what?" Arthur muttered with his eyes fluttering only once, and Stayle, who had been standing up until a while ago, responded, "What?" He looked into the package in Arthur's hand and, astonishingly, picked up a card with only the address and confirmed it. … Maybe it was a shock that he was left out without a message. Tiara laughed mischievously at Stayle and Arthur looking at the card with only the address side by side. After laughing happily with giggles, she turns that smile on me. In response to Tiara's reaction, Stayle and Arthur looked up at the same time and stared at me and Tiara. Then, Stayle opened his mouth while suppressing his voice as if hesitating a little. "My sister ..., ... that, if you like ... why only me and Arthur ..., ... can you tell me ...?" No, I'm happy enough with that gift ...! Arthur silently nodded to Stayle, who squeezed it out so hard to say. Somehow the reaction of the two was cute, and I also laughed side by side with the tiara. Tiara whispered to me, "Please come from my sister," and I understand. As it was, when I put my hand in the basket again, I gently picked up the remaining two with my fingertips. "Because you have this." At the same time, I laughed at the two people who had their eyes rounded, but when I said it, I suddenly became nervous. With a slight quivering mouth, I presented what I took out of the basket to Arthur and Stayle, respectively. A letter to them. (Arthur POV) 366. The Adopted Brother Falls in Love, and the Knight Ends Spoiler "I thought I'd really rewrite it, but ... I couldn't stop thinking about you." For a moment, my head blew away seriously. To that smile that makes my face so red about us. My head shook and I thought it was an earthquake. When she wrote this letter, I wondered if Pryde thought only about me. … Even though I knew I was in love, my heart made a loud noise and vibrated my whole body. When I thought that it was Stayle and I who made such a cute face like Pryde, I was too happy and went out to the face. Reflexively cover my mouth with my arm and look down. ... Still, I can't take my eyes off Pryde-sama as if the stake had stuck. Stayle screamed as it reached my ears. With a daring voice, he asked, "That ... what on earth did you write ...". Though I thought I heard something amazing, I was also worried, and I lifted my arm from my face, squeezed my mouth, and stared at Pryde. Then, Pryde-sama turned her gaze away from us for some reason after her expression had settled a little. She opened her mouth and the answer came back from Pryde, whose face became reddish, at a volume about breathing on the way. "... Ku ... it's embarrassing to say ..." ⁈⁈‼ ︎‼ ︎ That, Pryde-sama is⁈‼ ︎ I was so surprised that I couldn't speak. The blood in my body suddenly rises and it gets hot. Stayle has settled again as I did. Even if I want to think about what it's like to be embarrassed by Pryde who has given me various words, I can't think of anything anymore. Looking over here, as Pryde, who noticed our reaction, hurriedly said, "Hey, I didn't write anything strange! It's embarrassing to show it to people ... but at least I just want you to stop reading and speaking in front of me ...! " No, I can't show it to anyone, and I'll never read it in front of Pryde because it's something I'll do. I got stuck in a mess, and I couldn't say any words this time. Pryde hung her eyebrows as if she was in trouble with her face red. I have to return something quickly, but my head is white and nothing comes out. When I thought that nitrogen would die as it was, Tiara said, "I'm sure that since it's Sister, you wrote something very nice!" She continued, "I'm looking forward to reading. Arthur, brother!", So I nodded with Stayle. Thank you for finally being able to speak a little. Pryde laughed happily. With that smile, she was cut off once, saying "But," and when we waited for the rest, Pryde shook her cheeks with her fingertips as if she was shy again. "That dish and cookies are as special as they are." … A very dazzling smile hit me directly. This person was so dazzling that I wondered how many times she would take my breath away. Hey, Pryde who smiled at Tiara and laughed at each other was really beautiful and cute. "Because that was the one that Tiara made with me. For the two of us, it's full of twice the feelings this time." Two doses. ... I was very happy with Pryde's smile, but I was a little disappointed because I thought it was partly the work of Prince Cedric that she failed once. Pride laughs as if she doesn't care anymore, but next to me, Stayle is so angry ..., ...? …. … Somehow, an extraordinary ambition has exuded. "Twice…." The mutter leaked with a voice volume that only I could hear. After all, he's angry that Pryde-sama was bothered to make it ..., ......... that. "Two people" isn't just my cooking, but maybe Stayle ... … Yeah. When I noticed, Tiara looked at Stayle next to Pryde. Tiara also seemed to notice why Stayle was angry, and when she looked at Stayle, she nodded silently. … Immediately. The pitch black ambition overflowed at once. Pryde also noticed and called out "Stayle⁇", but soon after that, he turned into a surprised face and swam his eyes. Apparently he finally noticed it now. Perhaps he was convinced of Pryde's reaction, Stayle made a low voice from the bottom of the earth. "Not only Arthur's food, but also mine ...⁇" Stayle's eyes are burning black. ... yes, that means Prince Cedric ate not only the food for me but the cookies for Stayle. I already knew it because I was a little while ago, but now that I know about Stayle's cookies, it's natural to be sharp. It's bad, and at this rate, it seems like he's going to teleport to hit Prince Cedric. Pryde said, "But! That's why I prepared a lot of cookies this time!", But Stayle's anger hasn't healed yet. I had no choice but to hit his back while shouting "Calm down!". After leaning forward, he was suddenly hit and suffocated, so Stayle felt a little off. His eyes were still angry, but Stayle, who was more courageous than before, glared at me and then folded his arms without saying anything. ... I think it will take root inside. When I suddenly noticed and looked around, my father's progress was also rounded. It's more of a reward for Stayle than a cookie. If the opponent was not the First Prince, absolutely everyone would hold the sword. I never know what we're talking about with my dad and Clark. "That's why Pryde-sama got angry enough to cry ..." To calm down, I speaks to Pryde while turning his arm around Stayle's shoulder. When he noticed, he finally returned to be able to speak like Pryde normally. Tiara nodded silently to my words many times. … Apparently Tiara also had an unexpected root. Pryde laughed bitterly at me and Stayle, returning "Yes ... I'm sorry that the reason was like a child," and Pride continued her words before trying to return that it wasn't the case. "But I'm okay." Thank you for being angry. Not only me but also Stayle and Tiara were eye-opened by the words of Pryde that said lightly. Suspecting that it was forgiving Prince Cedric or something like that, Pryde gently put her hands on the shoulders of Tiara next to her. "Because today. Thanks to Tiara, I was able to send all the special gifts to my special people in a nicer way. I am very happy." special… The body that has settled down gets hot again at her words. I could see that Stayle by my shoulders waa getting hot, not only with the touched arms but also with the eyes. Pryde, who laughs happily from the bottom of her heart, is fascinated again. I doubt my ears because I can't believe that I was "special" to such a special person. I was so afraid to listen back, and my throat was clogged with my mouth open. Pryde keeps smiling at us who lose words. I tell myself in my head that it's a misunderstanding, but when I see the smiles of Pryde and Tiara, and when I see the reaction of Stayle, it doesn't seem like a misunderstanding.
