Is this alright…?
(Are you stupid or what, I’m the Sacred Beast governing this country, ya know? I’m much more important than the King, okay? I will have you know that I even changed this fellow’s diapers.)
No, I don’t think diapers have anything to do with this.
Leon-sama, please don’t expose the diaper story that is probably black history for him while eating sweets with a smug look on your face for the sake of His Majesty’s honor.
… Or rather… this was telepathy, right??
It’s a good thing I couldn’t think of a way to react and kept quiet, but what if I had mentioned the diaper story out loud!?
(Leon-sama, please stop reading people’s minds. And also, please don’t use telepathy out of nowhere, it startled me!)
(Oh? Sorry, sorry. I don’t usually use telepathy with people who are not my contractors because it would surprise them, but I figured you wouldn’t have a problem with it.)
Don’t just figure it, geez!
But it’s a fact he was protecting me.
I cannot waste Leon-sama’s kindness.
I clasped my hands tightly.
“… As a citizen of the Doristan Kingdom, I want to do what I can to help. However, I don’t want to take advantage my Sacred Beasts just because they are under contract with me.”
I made firm eye contact with His Majesty, who was looking at me with a serious face, and continued.
“… I understand that this is selfish of me. However, the reason I made a contract with them was not to use them. Now that I have made a contract with them, I want to be there for them and also do my best to protect them.”
“You want to protect them?”
“Yes. I am well aware that there is only so much I can do. But if I can protect them from people’s intentions, I want to protect do my best for them.”
His Majesty looks at me with amusement.
Is… is this alright? Isn’t this a crime of disrespect, after all?
“Well, she’s quite a determined young lady. She’s Stewart’s and Anrietta’s daughter, indeed. What do you say, Lily?”
His Majesty started chuckling to himself, so I was taken aback.
Eh, umm? D, determined, he said…
“I told you, didn’t I? That Cristea-chan is a good girl.”
Lily-sama replied to His Majesty with a smug face, but what is this about?
(You are such a fool… you should have just kept shut and let me protect you, ahhh~ Now he’s totally interested in you.)
Hah? Eh? Interested? His Majesty is??
(I don’t like this…)
Eh?? Kurogane?? Mashiro??
They heard Leon-sama’s telepathy??
While I was flustered, Kurogane and Mashiro stepped forward imposingly.
“My Lord is kindhearted, and will do everything in her power to protect us, even the strong, us. I will not allow anyone to take advantage of her desire.”
“I won’t forgive anyone who makes Cristea cry.”
