“What are you thinking about with such a blank expression?”
‘Well, I’m thinking that you’re ugly. Why?’
If I actually said those words out loud, he would probably execute me, so I just shook my head.
“That knight just now.”
Caitel directed his eyes at me. Walking along with the red eyes, I grabbed his pants again.
“He looks like you.”
My answer stopped Caitel’s foot. After I stayed along with him, Caitel opened his mouth, but no voice escaped his mouth.
What was it? I looked up at him and tilted my head.
‘Why, daddy, couldn’t you speak anything?’ What, did he lost his voice suddenly?
“No, we’re different.”
Finally, his voice came out of his lips. I tilted my head again.
However, he didn’t even know why I said they both looked similar. Why was he rejecting my opinion so coldly?
They were completely different people, yet they resembled each other somehow. I couldn’t quite place my finger on what it was, but I felt like there’s something untouchable between them. However, I didn’t have the courage to uncover what it was, so I should just stay quiet.
“Oh, Eloth roses!”
The Eloth rose was a white rose that’s reflected in rainbow colors. They said it was a symbol of a certain god, usually blooming in the south, but it was hard to see it since it was a flower that bloomed briefly in the spring. I took one and held it in my hand.
“Look, dad. It’s Eloth rose.”
The roses turn red, blue, and white as they shook around my hands. It was as if they had grounded the spectrum to shreds. As I smiled quietly, Caitel, who was watching from the side, nodded his head.
“Yes, well… at least it’s prettier than the one holding it.”
Seriously!? Why did he keep picking a fight with me?!
Suddenly, Caitel laughed when I stared at him with a frown. He burst into laughter like a madman.
Mom, what the hell, he was so scary.
What is wrong with him? Suddenly, he’s laughing all by himself like he had gone bonkers. It’s best not to talk to crazy people or perverts.
I slowly moved my step and moved away from him. Caitel laughed for a long time and then suddenly erased all the emotions from his face. I flinched after seeing that sudden transition.
