Goran said as he poured Danton another cup.
“We’re still gathering more information. Even I don’t have anything to do.”
“That’s true. Locke won’t be very useful until the fighting begins. So he must leave matters to us at the Adventurers guild.”
“I will also do what I can to help.”
“I’m comforted to hear that, Danton.”
We drank long into the night.
And Danton and Goran stayed the night at my mansion.
When I woke up the next morning, Milka was already awake.
She was running about and working.
“Good morning, Milka.”
“Ah, good morning Mister Locke! I’ll bring you your breakfast immediately!”
I entered the dining hall and saw that Danton and Shia and Nia were already there.
“Oh, you three are up early.”
“I heard from my father that you will allow me to apprentice for you. I am so very grateful!”
“Is that what you want, Nia?”
“I see. In that case, it is decided.”
After that, Luchila and Lord Gerberga, as well as Grulf, came down and we all had breakfast.
When we finished eating, Lord Gerberga approached me.
“What is it? Lord Gerberga.”
Lord Gerberga clucked and pecked at my hand.
“Luchila. Is Lord Gerberga angry?”
“No, I don’t think he’s angry. But he does seem discontented.”
“I think that Lord Gerberga wants you to talk to him less formally.”
“Indeed? Is that true? Lord Gerberga.”
Lord Gerberga landed on my lap and pressed against me.
“Yes, he doesn’t like it at all.”
If Luchila said so, then it must be true.
Perhaps he had observed that I didn’t talk like that with Danton anymore and it became unbearable.
“Alright. We’ll be more friendly from now on, Lord Gerberga.”
Lord Gerberga clucked with satisfaction.
