Rubenio heavily chewed on his lips and lightly touched his daughter’s cheek.
The curls of dry hair ran down on her soft cheeks.
He didn’t know how pretty her cheeks that he hadn’t touched in 20 years were.
However, he was upset because it wasn’t much different from when she was a baby.
If only she had gained more weight, it wouldn’t have made his heart hurt so much just by looking at her fingertips.
Rubenio stared endlessly at her skinny white hands, then naturally glanced out the window.
“I’ve felt someone’s gaze from a while ago.”
“It’s unclear which one. Whether they’ve been on a stakeout or whether they’ve just showed up.”
Now Caesar, who was sitting still in a seat that could be called his reserved seat, glanced at the window that had been left deliberately opened.
He was quite a clever guy. He could also feel their gaze, but he couldn’t pinpoint the location.
People poking around, it was very difficult to see her barely fluttering on the surface of the water.
“They seem to know that if they get caught, they will get caught. It won’t take long, they’re not coming.”
Rubenio turned to Nineina again.
Rubenio, who was affectionately looking at the child that had fallen asleep, gently grabbed her hand.
“Baby… there are too many things that disturb you.”
The soft but somewhat gloomy voice turned Caesar’s head towards Rubenio.
Caesar was going to warn him to be careful in front of Nineina, but when he saw Rubenio, who was quickly fading away, he shut his mouth.
Caesar got up and walked to the window.
All he had to care about was that he’s someone who’s never going to hurt her.
Caesar also slipped those words quietly.
Rubenio’s face, while gently clasping her hands in hopes that her cold hands would become warm, had melted as if his words had never happened.
Caesar looked out the window.
The plants from the garden seemed to provide plenty of places to hide. Even an adult man seemed to be able to hide.
He stared quietly at the thick forest, then ripped off the buttons of his clothes and threw one away.
The button, which flew at great speed, cut through the bush and struck a tree.
Bang! The dust flew in the spot where the wind blew once.
Nineina liked to look out the window, so the garden that the gardener had especially pampered had turned into a swampy field.
In the wake of the sudden attack and loud disturbances, it was only natural that the knights rushed out and were on the lookout everywhere.
“Who is it?”
The culprit who ruined the garden had the nerve to answer.
Caesar looked at the empty faces indifferently and pointed towards the garden.
Having moved her to a safe room, it was time to drive the rats away.
Caesar gestured towards the sparsely uprooted bush.
The knights, who had lost their words for a moment at the horrific sight of the soil being scattered and uprooted, immediately followed Caesar’s orders.
Rubenio, who had been covering his daughter’s ears with a frown at the loud noise, turned to Caesar after the commotion.
“Did you see something?”
“I just threw it out of a hunch.”
Rubenio was impatient to grab the end of the intrusive gazes.
“Given that they’re only hiding quietly, their objective must be surveillance. But I only felt their gaze after I arrived here. Do you think they’ll follow me if I move?”
“Unless I know which of the two they are watching, I can’t be sure. But the odds are skewed to one side.”
Caesar looked at Nineina and said,
“If they don’t follow me…..”
Rubenio swallowed his words and looked down at Nineina. He loosened his expression and removed his hands from Nineina’s ears that had been covered.
“…When will my baby wake up?”
“She will sleep at least 3 more hours.”
It was such a long time that it took his breath away.
Rubenio unconsciously tried to sigh and his mouth was sadly clouded.
“My baby… I shouldn’t be doing this, but I’m becoming more and more greedy.”
“I thought it would be nice to see your face, but there are always more things I want to see. I saw you sleeping so I want you to open your eyes and see me too……”
Perhaps because of her pale complexion, the sleeping Nineina looked like a well-made statue, not a person.
It’s right for her to sleep because she’s breathing, but he wishes she could wake up and show those lovely eyes once again.
“I want to hug you tight…”
When his baby wakes up, he wants to get permission to do so.
He couldn’t do it when she was young, he wanted to put her in my arms and put her to sleep.
‘Nia, if you were alive, our baby could have heard the most perfect lullaby in the world.’
However, if Nineina was satisfied with him, he could sing until his voice was gone.
“I wonder if you’re eating well…”
Rubenio saw a commoner father and daughter as he came here.
A girl ran over to the man who was wiping his sweat as if he had worked hard.
She was a little girl which Rubenio thought was probably ten years old, but she clung to the arms of a man who looked like her father and whispered something.
Seeing someone else’s child chattering like a bird is so pretty, but he couldn’t take my eyes off of them because he thought of how pretty Nineina would be if she spoke like that.
The grinning man walked over with the child and bought her a red apple.
For the child who was struggling to eat a big apple, he broke the apple and held it in his hand to prevent it from falling.
No matter what, he was so envious of them, no matter how much he tilted my head, he stared at it endlessly until he could no longer see it.
He was told that my baby was not feeling well and should not eat apples, but he wanted to collect all the apples in that market over there.
“Wherever you want to fly like a bird… I will take you to them all.”
Neither the blue sea, nor the dense forest, nor the vast geography of lands, she was a child who had never truly felt anything.
The child’s only journey was travelling from the mansion to the villa when she was very young.
The reply to the greeting letter asking, “How are you?” was a flying bird, but Rubenio knew that wasn’t all.
“You must have longed for it… I want you to go too.”
The thought of it shattered his heart.
His heart was broken because he wondered how the child had lived in such a remote place.
How much would a curious child, who couldn’t go out of this villa alone, wonder about the outside world?
Thinking of the heart that he wanted to reach but could not reach in the end, he felt sick to my stomach and frustrated to my throat.
“I will never regret leaving you again.”
Rubenio promised. What he needed now was the courage to actively protect his daughter.
Focusing on safety, he always drove a nail into his daughter’s heart, not knowing how vain it was. He can no longer do that.
“I’m sure you’ve already caught this place”
From the moment Rubenio chose to come down here, Nineina’s situation was going to change.
A few lists came to mind.
Some were close to here and some were near the capital.
“Where would be a good place?”
“Can we go together?”
Caesar said in an indifferent tone.
It wasn’t that Rubenio didn’t think about that part either.
But it was difficult.
A slow wagon would take more than a week to get to a place while it would take several days on a horseback.
Even when he was very young, he had to overcome the crisis of life and death situations several times.
Things were never better before, but now they were more dangerous.
So Rubenio did not dare to bring his daughter close.
Rubenio only thought about the possibility of him coming here and hanging out with them.
If Caesar, who was clearly aware of the situation, heard something like that, he could be angry, asking if Rubenio was teasing him.
But Rubenio just asked quietly.
“Have you thought of a way?”
“Why don’t we fly?”
“…Since you’re under a contract with the Wind Spirit. You mean to fly with the power of a spirit?”
“Yes. We’ll be able to save a lot of time.”
The sky, which we could fly through in a straight line, was much faster than the land route where one had to go around.
But it wasn’t that Rubenio didn’t think of this method.
No matter how precious the spirits were, it wasn’t like Rubenio couldn’t save them.
So that wasn’t the problem.
“Can the baby survive? You will get motion sickness and the wind will be strong.”
At Rubenio’s words, Caesar glanced at Nineina.
“Sickness… can be solved by putting her to sleep. It would be easy to make her fall asleep after being tired.”
There were a lot of ways to put Nineina to sleep.
She’s still sleeping right now.
Rather, it would have been much more difficult to put Nineina to sleep so as not to faint.
She may feel a little nauseous after being up in the skies, but it’s far less consuming than taking her when she’s with a sound mind.
“And the wind? The spirit’s shield is air-permeable.”
At Rubenio’s words, Caesar paused.
