“I’m going crazy, really. Why are you doing this to me?”
A splash of water rose along with a voice full of nerves. The fairy, who had suddenly transformed back into a child, appeared on the surface to be very angry.
“When I am still able to say nice things, give me my brother.”
“Whose will it be? Oh my, who is this?”
The fairy, who had just been blowing her nose, joyfully approached Theo after suddenly noticing him. Fearing that she might harm Theo, I hurriedly stopped the rain and stood in front of Theo.
“Chris. Long time no see.”
“Do you know my father?”
Theo has a striking resemblance to our father. In addition to imitating my mother, this fairy seems to know my father.
“You look exactly like Chris. What is your name?”
“I am Theo Valentine, Christopher Valentine’s eldest son.”
To him, the fairy was extremely friendly, but when she looked at Theo, her cheeks even blushed, and she spoke to her quite kindly. Moreover, Theo showed courtesy in a situation where it was not enough to get angry.
It seemed that the fairy was very weak towards handsome men. The fairy took one look at Theo, then checked on Isaac and Alex standing behind her, and smiled happily.
“Oh, my goodness. It’s been a long time since so many customers came to visit us.”
There are also nostalgic faces. The fairy added those words and looked at Isaac with interest. Anyone can see that I and Isaac are siblings. Just by looking at the three of us, everyone who knew Mom and Dad would recognise us as our parents’ children.
If there’s an exception, it’s Louise. The fairy snorted with a knowing look on her face.
“So much time has already passed.”
Although her face clearly looked young, I could guess the fairy’s age from her words. It seems that she met our father and mother when they were our age, so it was somewhat understandable that the fairy was lonely after protecting this forest alone for such a long time.
“I heard you were leaving me here alone and going to meet a girl you like. You’re the only one who’s happy, Chris is so mean.”
“My father is not just happy.”
“He is still struggling to keep the capital alone.”
The fairy laughed heartily at Theo’s skillful speaking skills, as if he were appreciative. After gently currying favour with her, my brother slowly moved on to the main topic.
“But that doesn’t work. I can’t give that kid back.”
The fairy laughed mischievously at my question.
“It’s not fair that only you guys are happy. They have a lot of kids anyway, so wouldn’t it be okay to give me at least one?”
I forgot for a moment that she was not a match for words. Theo responded calmly to the fairy’s request for something left, like an object.
Theo’s older brother, who was approaching the situation rationally, began to be increasingly fooled by the fairy’s puns. No matter how logically he added words, the sophistical fairy continued to tease Theo by picking on the tail of his words.
“Say it now!”
Isaac couldn’t stand it anymore and got angry. As if she had been waiting, the fairy approached Isaac’s brother and asked in a tickling voice.
“You are Isaac. Be honest. You always wanted Louise gone.”
“When did I……!”
“You have never stopped hating Louise and being a bully to her, regardless of what Louise has done. You’ve never sided with him in your life. Are you sure you didn’t?”
IIsaac was so enraged that he did not know what to say because he was speechless. Isaac was always on my side whenever there was a fight with Louise. The fairy, who became confident, deliberately tried to stimulate my brother, who had stiffened, even more.
“You always hated that kid. Is not it?”
The fairy flicked her hand and showed something. I saw Louise curled up in the ice palace, then disappearing into thin air.
“Take him if you can.”
The fairy put a condition as if she was being generous. We are free to take Louise, who is sleeping in that room, but only one person can enter that room.
“However, if that kid says he doesn’t want to go back, the person who entered the room must also stay here.”
“That’s fair. You know what people say, nothing is free in this world. Is it not so?”
If you fail, you must stay here. Despite the conditions, Theo came forward without any hesitation.
Theo is the eldest son who will inherit the Valentine family in the future. Of course, he wanted to wait in the capital for Clara’s sake, but I decided not to say that.
“I was the one who asked him to come here. So I’ll go.”
Before Isaac could step forward, Alex grabbed my arm first. It seems that the time we spent together was not completely meaningless, as he was quite heartbreakingly trying to stop me from going.
I even felt a little proud. I smiled mischievously as I faced Alex, who told me not to go, saying it was dangerous.
“Do not worry. I will persuade him well and bring him here.”
Instead of speaking, I held out my pinky finger. Alex hesitated for a moment and then promised with his pinky finger.
As I moved forward, I found myself confronted by my older brother, Isaac, who was full of disapproval.
“You won’t listen even if I try to stop you, right?”
Huh. Isaac knows me very well. After nodding my head, I faced Theo, who was standing behind Isaac.
I couldn’t help but crack a smile when I looked up at Theo, who was unusually worried. Looking at him like this, he really looks like our dad.
Even if I’m not there, Theo will definitely be able to make Clara happy. As the male lead, Alex, was the one I had decided to hook up with, I ran to my brother, hugged his waist tightly, and whispered in a voice so low that no one could hear.
“If you stay like this, you might miss Clara. So confess quickly.”
Theo’s eyes widened at my sudden words. Now is the time to reveal to the world the feelings he has kept out of his mouth.
I tapped my surprised brother’s hand and ran to the fairy.
The fairy looked at me with a repentant smile. If I’m unlucky, I may not be able to return, but no matter what happens to me, I must return Louise to my family.
Louise seems to think he is a child picked up from outside, but strictly speaking, the fake one in this family is not Louise, but me. I had one hand wrapped around Lævateinn tightly, and the other hand was holding the fairy’s hand.
“There’s not even this much cuteness.”
“You are noisy.”
I gave the fairy a quick pinch and then turned to face Alex. If I really can’t come back like this, will Alex be a little sad?
But since we’ve gotten a little closer, it would be nice if you were sad. I might be a really bad kid for even thinking that.
“You’d better hurry.”
Ignoring the fairy’s sarcasm, I carefully stepped onto the surface of the water. Slowly, one step at a time.
When the bastard, who was sleeping peacefully by himself, wakes up, the first thing I should do is to kick his butt as hard as I can. Keeping all of this in mind, I made my way to the ice room where Louise was trapped.
