Return to the Mansion
Refi smiled as she watched Philly leave.
“We should let them talk for a while.”
“Yes, that would be best.”
“She can stay in the palace tonight and Eric will take her back tomorrow.”
“Isn’t Eric busy?”
“He is busy. But, isn’t he going to visit you anyway?”
Eric visited me quite often.
So if he was just taking Philly back as a part of that, I guess it was alright.
“I feel bad for taking him away so much.”
“I don’t mind that, but…”
“Eric. I think he is eating too much recently.”
This was about eating two meals in a row.
“Locke, could you warn him as well?”
“Alright. I’ll tell him.”
I said goodbye to the princesses and returned to the mansion.
Grulf and Lord Gerberga came with me.
As we walked down the passage, Lord Gerberga hopped onto my shoulder and clucked happily.
“Lord Gerberga, did you have a good time then?”
He flapped his wings.
“I see. That’s great.”
He had fun playing with the princesses.
Grulf was running excitedly in the passage.
“And you, Grulf?”
He barked and then jumped on me to lick my face.
“I’m happy to hear it.”
I said as I petted him.
When we arrived at the mansion, Milka was waiting for us.
Luchila was there too. Perhaps she had really missed Lord Gerberga.
“Mister Locke, welcome back! Will you be having dinner?”
“Yes, thank you.”
“It’s my job!”
Lord Gerberga jumped from my shoulder over to Luchila.
“How was it, Lord Gerberga?”
Milka looked behind me and asked.
“Huh? Where is Master Philly?”
“She’s talking with her parents. She’ll be staying at the palace tonight.”
“I see. So is Tama with her too?”
And then Milka and Luchila went to the kitchen to prepare the food.
On the other hand, Grulf and I went to the drawing-room.
Kathe and Dorgo were there.
“Ah. You’re back, Locke!”
“Good evening. Any news about the enemy base?”
“Nothing I can say for certain.”
So it wasn’t that they had no information at all.
In other words, they had some information they were unsure of.
As I wondered about this, Dorgo continued.
