292-Episode 204 Burns Up and Burns Out

'What are you crying about, my knight?

Riveka peered at me as I crouched down and let out a carefree voice.

I'm tired of .......

'Well, Bertha. All the men on the road to get here were fainting, do you know anything about that?
'Well, I don't have any idea.
'Well, I don't have any idea...' 'Those poor victims fell prey to your miniskirts!

Bertha is still wearing her crimson miniskirt. Her legs are raw. Every now and then, when the hem of the skirt was about to flip up in the wind, I had the urge to scream into the sky. "Don't do anything you shouldn't! --And...

'But you see, my knight. I didn't expect you to come see me so soon as you promised ......'.

Rebekah laughs in a good mood.

'My knight is very fond of me, isn't he?
'Hahaha, that's really funny, the 24th district gag.

I don't know how such a young girl knows the word 'crush'. ...... I know, it's a joke about 'forced translation magic', anyway.

I have very fond feelings for you. You should be pleased.'
'Well, thank you.

I called up Rebekah to ask her about love and romance, but she didn't have any .......
She is nine years old and looks five.
You can find a lot of people who are interested in this kind of thing.
It's hard to talk seriously about love with this guy.

'My knight. I'm willing to go out with you if it's just for fun!
'Don't you dare make any surprising statements with your appearance!

The 'games' you're talking about are games like tag and hide and seek!

'Oh, um, Rebeka-san...'

I'm not sure if you've seen this before, but I'm sure you've.
...... It hurts like hell.

I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to do that.Like, for example, ...... marriage?'
'I want to do it before it's too late.'

'Too late,' said Rebekah, pointing at Bertha.
Oh, you're not afraid to step on some pretty serious land mines, are you?

I'm not sure what to make of it, but I'm sure it's worth it.

...... It was a close call. If I hadn't seen that movie, I might have been hit. You never know what will be useful in this world.

'Do you have any requirements for a marriage partner?
'What?Are you interested in my views on marriage, Estella?'
'Oh, no, you see!It's fun to talk about love, isn't it?
'Mmmm!That's right!A girl should be able to enjoy love stories!That's Estella!You know what you're doing!
'Hahaha ......'

You can see that Estella's mind is exhausted as she says whatever is convenient at the moment.
In the event that you have any questions concerning where and how to use the internet, you can contact us at .............

I'm sure you'll be able to figure out what you need to do.

'In my case, I have to find a son-in-law who will take over this factory.
'...... Ah.'

Estella's mouth opens wide and her eyes look at you with agitation.
...... I see. Rebekah is the number one in the koji factory.
She's not in a position to get married.

............ If you let Filman know, he's going to throw you out as lord, easy as that.

I'm not interested in dating.Would you be interested in a relationship?

Oh, no!
Estella has put off the difficult issue!
Is she trying to smoke out the issue of getting a son-in-law so that she can go out with Filman for now?

It's true that you may be able to settle the dispute with BU before the issue of marriage comes to light, but ............ that will definitely be a disaster for us later on.
It's a good idea to have a good idea of what you're going to do with your time.

'I'm not interested in ............ your company, but I'm not interested in ......'.

It's not that I'm not interested, but I'm not interested.

'I've never met anyone.

...... He's nine years old, you know.
I can't help but wonder what he's talking about.

You can find a lot of them in the sandbox.

At your age, a word or two and you'll be friends in no time.

'We're not interested in children who are absorbed in playing in the sand.

Hey, you're nine!You look like you're five!

'I want someone at least five years older than me. I'm more mature than most people my age.'

Estella's eyes light up. Her eyes light up.
No, it's true that Filman is fourteen, five years older than Rebekah!
It's just that among all the negative factors, there was only one that matched.
It's a total losing battle.

'I want someone forty to fifty years younger than me!
'Shut up, Bertha. And don't be so thick-headed.

What you're thinking of isn't 'love', it's 'hunting'.

'Yashiro, what should I do?

Estella asked me in this disadvantageous situation.
No, 'what should I do'? ......

As I pondered what to say, Estella continued in a whispered voice.

'Anyway, do you want to ask her?
'Ask about what?
'Someone you like.

There is a hint that Rebecca has someone she likes .......
He's in the church, a man she's very attached to. The kind of guy that Rebekah would want to meet for any reason...... if it was someone she had a crush on, she'd be out.

It's better to be clear about that before Philman comes.
If he talks about his love for a different guy right in front of you, ...... Filman might be summoned to heaven right here.

'Well, let's just ask him.

Estella and I were in agreement.
First, I'm going to ask Filman a few questions in private.
After that, ............ we'll just have to fake it.

It's okay, you know. Philman's heart is broken.
Donis will be in a better mood if he puts an end to his unfulfilled love and gets excited about being a lord.
And if he can be comforted by one of the many potential brides from good families, he'll be able to ...... Oh, it all seems to be falling into place!

That's it!Let's do this!
You, Filman, get dumped!
For us!

'Estella. Think of something to cheer her up.'
'............ I think you're right. ......'

Estella must have come to the same conclusion as me.
The bitter smile on her face shows her guilt.

But I can't turn my back on it.
Filman is just someone we can trust to do his best in the future, and what we need now is Donnis' help.

Our first priority is to make Donnis feel better.

So, don't cry, Philman.
The scars of love are the pain of youth. It's better to experience it.

'Then we should try to keep the scars from getting too deep.
'That's right. Mr. Donnerty will be very angry if you can't recover.
'If you can just keep him occupied for a while, ......'
'...... "Mr. Donati is the only one who can encourage him and walk with him into the future,"' you can say.
'That's what I'm talking about.

The two of us played our tricks, and we nodded at each other.
I'm ready.
Farewell, Filman!

'Hey, Rebekah. You're going to the church, .......'
'Oh. Why is Natalia hiding in that place?'

He turned around, but could not see Natalia.
...... But Rebekah is certain that she is pointing to the corner where Natalia and the others are hiding.
............ How did they know?

I like Natalia because she's funny. I like Natalia because she's funny.
'Oh, ......, well, Natalia is .......'
'What is it, Estella?Did you have a fight?
'No, no............, not really......'
'Then, go get her.
'It's more fun together.
'Oh, wait, Rebeka-san!

Rebekah jumped and ran with dancing steps to the corner where Natalia was hiding.
By the time Estella turned around to stop her, Rebeka had already reached the corner.
You're so fast, bunny girl!

In the event you're not sure what you're looking for, you'll be able to find it on the web. ...... Hey, Philman, are you alive?

I'm not sure if this is a good idea.I'm actually a genius at hide-and-seek!You can play with me if you want.

Natalia looks at me with a wry smile.
Unusually, she's looking to me for help.

'Oh, ...... actually, I was thinking of surprising Rebekah, but I guess she didn't fall for it. Too bad.'
'Hahaha. It was naive of you to try to surprise me. I'm a mature woman who knows what she's doing.

Rebekah smiles, seemingly in a good mood.
For now, I'll just lift her up and make this whole thing go away. Children are easy to carry.

While she's doing that, she looks at Fillman, 'Are you okay? I ask.
Apparently noticing this, he lifts his arms in a big circle and makes an 'X' above his head, but then his arms pass over his head and form a big 'X' in front of his chest. I'm not sure ...... that's a good idea.

The mouth is opening and closing for no reason. You look like a carp. ...... 'Only in love'?I'm jealous.

'Hmm?Who's that guy over there?

Rebekah tilted her upper body to the side and peered at Firman, who was hiding behind Natalia.
Her hair hung down softly, and her long rabbit ears flicked.

The filmmaker crawled toward me with the scabrous movements of an arthropod. It's a good idea to keep your eyes and ears open. I'm not going to touch ...... the woman, are you?

You're not going to touch her.
'Yeah, I guess so.

I'm nervous, too.

'Mmm-hmm. It's no wonder you're so nervous when you're in front of a big guy like me. There's no shame in it, boy.

...... No, boy, I'm older than you.

The little big man is pompous and proud, his bunny ears twitching. He's got a big nose.

Now that everything is ruined, what should I do? ...... I was thinking, when I felt a thrust on my hip.
When I turned around, Filman was holding out a stack of notes to me.

It said, "Ask me any questions you have.
............ writing?

'Ah~ ...... Rebekah. The guy over here wants to get to know you.'
'Oh?Is that so?But you're a very shy boy if you can't even say that to yourself.'
'Well, he's probably just nervous. After all, Rebeka is a superstar.
'Oh!Is that so?Is that so?That's me!My aura is a little too strong!Well, if my knight says so, we can't help but get along. I love being praised.

Rebeka loves to be praised, and when she's in a good mood, she doesn't care about the details.
All right, let's let her ride like this.

--And then her hips are pinched again, and she's presented with a notepad from Filman.

I'm not sure why you're calling me that. What's a knight? (indignant)

............ Oh, that's right. You'll be able to get a lot more information on the subject. ...... I don't know what to do.

In the event that you have any kind of questions concerning where and how to use the internet, you can contact us at our own web site.
When I tried to have a secret conversation with Estella in front of Rebeka, she knew about it.

So I grabbed a pen and a stack of notes from Filman and wrote down the words on them.

I'm calling her that to get her to open up. It's a tactic, don't worry about it.

He read my note and still gave me a blank stare.
If it weren't for the fact that I was trying to get Donnis on my side, I'd be able to ditch this f*cking pain in the ass. ......

'Hey, Rebekah. We're going to be friends forever, right?'
'Mm!No matter what happens, we're friends!

As we exchange these words, the Filmmaker behind me breaks down in a very obvious manner.
Yes, yes. It's okay, it's okay.
It won't develop into anything more than 'friends' for the rest of our lives, so don't worry.

But ...... you're not even a "friend".
You'll be able to find a lot more than just a few of them. I'm not sure what to make of this, but I'm sure it's a good idea. ............

'So, what's the boy's name?If you want to get to know each other, I can help you remember.'

Rebekah, who only remembers the names of people she likes, remembers names when she first meets them.
It's not that Philman made a great first impression on her,......, it's just that we know each other.

Then he pinched me on the hip and flicked me a stack of notes.

"I am Firman Donati. I'm studying hard to become the next Lord of the realm, but I also like to exercise and I'm confident in my short-distance running. My hobby is writing poems.

...... You can tell me yourself, that much.

'Ah~...... his name is Firman Donati, the son of the current lord's nephew. He is currently studying to become the next lord,............, ......, but he also likes to exercise and is confident in short distance running.
'Yashiro ...... did a good job, but one unconscious click of his tongue escaped.

Estella pointed this out to me, but I don't really remember it.
Well, a tongue lashing is bound to happen. It's inevitable. It's inevitable.

As I'm feeling dull and weary, as if I've been stuffed with lead, Philman pinches my waist again.
The note he gave me said.

"My hobby is writing poems.

...... I cut that part out at my discretion. You're the only one who thinks that's a plus.
If you're a writer, I'm an editor.
Sometimes writers are blinded by their own ideas of 'this is cool! But most of the time, when you look at it objectively, it's not so good, it's just 'ouch', so you should listen to what the editor says.
A third party's opinion is invaluable.

"My hobby is writing poems.

That's why I've decided to ignore all this poking and prodding.

'I'm good at running, too. If you want, I'll give you a shot next time.

A gut-punch is struck behind me.
...... Can you do it without me in the way?

And then a flicker of a note from a pinched hip.

I'm not sure what to say.

......AD's handwriting. I can't believe I'm being so reckless.

I'm not sure if it's a good idea, but it's a good idea.

The place where you are is so full of light that I am blinded. You're too bright.
I still want to stare at you.
Even if my eyes are blinded, I'll look at you with the eyes of my heart.
I'll try to be as close as possible to someone worthy of you.
I will rub my eyes desperately in the dazzling light...

............ Well...

'Rebekah. What's your favorite type?'

Well, I guess that sums it up, yeah.

'Mmm!Do you have a thing for me, my knight?
'No, that's not what I meant. ......'

When I glanced behind me, I saw that Filman had written something like "Vindictive flames scorch my body ......" in a note, which I promptly tore up and threw away.

'Ri, Rebeka-san is a superstar, so everyone is interested in her. What type of man do you like, Rebeka?
That's right. Even in the press, there are always love stories about famous people.

The combination play of Estella and Natalia gives us a good follow-up.
It was a nice assist, and Rebeca was well taken care of.

'Oh, I see. That's right. That's a popular topic in the information papers. That's what I read first.'
'Do you like them too, Rebecca, the information papers?
'Of course, Estella!After all, I'm even a sponsor of the paper!

Oh my god.
So this is the sponsor? Of course, I'm sure it's one of several.
It's a koji factory that is arguably the largest in BU. It's the perfect place to be a sponsor. The editorial department of the information paper has a good point.

'So, let's play an interview, assuming it will appear in the paper.

Natalia took out a pen and a note from her pocket and asked Rebeka a question in the manner of a reporter.

'What is your favorite type of man?
'Hmmm, that's true... ...... I'm not sure if I should be asking this out of the blue.

Rebeka smiles shyly, but happily.
You like this kind of thing, don't you?

'I have a bit of a good ear, so I like a man with a nice voice. ...... Oh, and don't tell anyone about this!It's a secret.

I'm not sure if you've heard of it, but I'm sure you've heard of it.
You have a good ear. ...... I see.

I'm sure you've heard of it.

I'm confident in my voice!

Then speak up!
Don't do that writing thing!

She simply ignored them and stared at them as they played reporter.
Natalia continues to pester Rebekah for an interview.

'Is there any man you are currently interested in?
'Oh my God, do I have to tell you all that?It's embarrassing.
'Okay, then.
'Wait a minute!You're supposed to come at me more forcefully than that!

Unusually, Rebekah's comment was right on the money.
Well, to be honest, I don't really care about it.

' Then!So let's get right to it!What men are you interested in?
I'm not sure.

I knew it.
Estella and I looked at each other and quietly shook our heads.

It was just as we had predicted.

Gently checking behind us, ......

I'm not sure if it's me or not.Of course it is!Because you've been staring at me so intently for so long! I'm sure you'll be happy to know that I'm not the only one who's a bit of a jerk. ...... You're lying, man. You've just been snooping. Where do you get your confidence from?

'By the way, ...... what was it that attracted you to me?'
'Well, that's.........'

In front of my eyes, the star love scoop game is still going on.
...... What should I do.
It's stupid, both in front and behind. What is this situation?

'It's whispering .......'
'Ummm,...... how can I say this,...... when someone says 'cute' or 'I like you' in a whispery voice,...... it makes my ears itch. I'm not sure what to say. ......

When he heard Rebekah's comment, ...... the expression fell from Philman's face.

The whispering was tantalizing to the ears. ......

Filman's face said, 'I've never whispered in your ear.
And, 'Oh, ...... maybe it wasn't me ............? And.

............ Wow, I can feel a very slippery aura. From behind you.
I'm not sure if this is a good idea, but it's a good idea.

I'm not sure.I'm not sure what to make of it, but I'm sure it's a good idea.
'......Yashiro. It's too much to ask.

Estella ruthlessly dismissed my best efforts to follow up.
You idiot, you have to do something to get things going here. ......

--I'm not sure what to do.

It read: ......

"I'm going on a trip. Please don't look for me.

'No, wait!That's a letter that should have been found after I left!No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no.

When I looked at Filman's face, it was soaked with tears and snot.
You can't be that shocked!

'...... Mofui!

Filman let out a breath that I've never heard before, and ran off.
And then, with a swiftness not unlike that of a nobleman's lad, he runs off, spreading tears.
...... without even raising a cry.

'Estella, I'm coming after you!
'Yes, you're right!I'm sorry, Rebekah!I'll come back and visit you!
'You look like you're in a lot of trouble. All right, then. Next time, we'll definitely play hide and seek!
'Yes!I promise!See you!
'Oh, and don't worry about the miniskirt Bertha that my knight has been stubbornly ignoring since a while ago, I'll take care of her properly.
'Thank you!I'm really grateful!

Actually, Bertha had been silently appealing to me ever since I moved from the gate.
Flipping the hem of her mini-skirt, tracing the line of her thighs with her fingers, winking at me,............, it's horrible. It's the kind of thing you shouldn't look at,......, it's haunting.

We left the chaotic place as fast as we could.
And chase after the filmmaker in front of us.
We've got to catch him at all costs!

I wonder how angry Donnis would be if he went on that trip. ......

We kicked our feet into the ground and increased our speed.
Without slowing down, we turned the corner in front of us--

'Oh......pp............I'm at my limit......... ...I can't run. ......'
'Stamina is low!

Just around the corner, Filman was crouched.
He was holding his mouth with a pale face, as if his stomach acid was refluxing. He was shivering as if he were an indoor dog in the middle of winter.

Aren't you a good runner?
I'm sure you'll be fine.

'...... At any rate, take him to the pavilion.'
'Yes, sir.
'Ah, you know, it's not ............ good to be touched by a woman!

Filmmann is still insistent at this point.
Estella and Natalia are staring at me with their hands up in the air.

...... Yeah, am I going to carry that?............ Haaaaah.

'I'll carry you, but you have to promise not to make a scene when we get back to the mansion.
'If you refuse, Natalia will carry you while you let out a s*xy gasp.
'............ I understand.'

Natalia was high profile enough to be in the papers.
If she did that, word would get out in an instant.
Filman reluctantly agreed and slung me onto his back.

'............ libeka...... san...... gosh.... ...............Ribe......'
'......Yeah, shit ............ is damp and depressing.'

Filman, who has been whimpering on my back for years.

It was the worst thing I could have imagined.
I was trying to prevent this from happening, but ...... Philman's love annoyance was unexpectedly annoying, and I guess I lost interest in it halfway through. ...... Also, the appearance of Bertha put a lot of strain on my spirit. It's no exaggeration to say that I lost my sense of normalcy because of that.

Anyway, this love was destined to fall from the start.
Then it would be best to stay positive, cheer up the broken-hearted man on my back, and focus on my lord.

Sobbing and sniffling sounds could be heard all the time.

Suddenly, those sounds stopped.
I looked around and saw a meat pie shop in front of me with a sign that said "Benali Bakery".
I see. I guess some people in the 24th district realize the usefulness of a sign with the name of the store. This is the first time I've seen such a sign other than the "Sunshine Pavilion".

Not .......
'Benna "Rebecca" Lee' ......

Philman ...... you're really, really sick, aren't you?

'............ Rebeka-san ......'.

In that weak voice, I thought, ............ d*mn, ...... just a little, 'Can't I do something about that? I'm sorry.
