I Swear I Won’t Bother You Again! – Chapter 14

It Is Important To Reflect On Your Actions

“Yuran……?”

She did not expect to hear his name, and she got surprised.
She never thought that Millania knows Yuran. Well, it is no wonder if he’s acquainted with Violette, he would at least know a bit about Yuran. He is free to look around to deepen their relationships as nobles.
However, that is not the problem. Why did he mention Yuran now?
Either Millania doesn’t want to bother to actually look about it, or he has already got some information about it, but Violette does not know which.

“Oh, don’t get me wrong, I just know that Claudia is upset…… or I should say he’s depressed, but I don’t know any more than that.”

“Then, why did you mention Yuran?”

“Oh, there is something after all.”

“Can you give me the answer?”

If he has actually known of what happened, Violette has no choice to stay quiet. She does not know how sharp Millania is, but she is slightly worried that Yuran will have to be responsible for that.

“I just assumed the gist from Claudia’s condition, but I don’t know the details…… you can relax.”

“Claudia-sama’s……?”

“Yeah, there is no way he would get like this unless Yuran is involved.”

She wonders what he meant by that, but she does not think that it is necessary for her to know regardless how curious she is.
She is close with Yuran, but she only knows her relationship with Yuran, but she doesn’t know about his relationship with others. She notices that Yuran and Claudia have a complex relationship only to a certain extent.
However, since Millania is the closest to Claudia, he might have noticed something.

“And, the only reason that Yuran would get involved with Claudia is only Violette-sama.”

“What do you mean?”

She wants to deny, but indeed what Yuran did was for Violette’s sake.
She is glad the situation did not worsen because of Yuran, but it seems it did cause damage to Claudia instead. Yuran would just smile if Violette asks, but that does not change that Violette was the one involving Yuran with her problem.
He might get hurt because of her.

“As Milla-sama has said…… there was indeed a bit of problem.”

Considering he should have his own secret network, he should have known everything from that. Then, he should do something about it himself.
That single problem was a very simple story. However, if you remember it again for several times, it should be obvious that it was merely a misunderstanding and the fact became twisted somehow along the way.
The fact that Violette was thrown into a black curtain was because it was just Claudia’s assumption. It is nothing bad, and she is already used to bad rumors around her.
However, it is possible for Yuran to receive such hostility. Even though it is pretty unlikely, but it is still possible. Still, what he said and did were enough to hurt someone by mistake. That was why Violette got angry to him before she thanked him.

“Please don’t misunderstand. It was not Yuran’s fault. I brought this on myself.”

If Yuran hears this, he would definitely say that it is not Violette’s fault. Just like that time regardless to whoever it is.
However, his feeling won’t reach Violette. Violette has experienced many bad things, and she grew negative, which leads her to underestimate herself.

“If that has been bothering Claudia-sama…… I apologize.”

Even though she somehow avoids the trouble, this is still the result for acting reckless. She needs to be careful next time, so let this mistake to be something she can reflect upon.

“I see…… I don’t know the details, but I don’t think you should worry about it or even feel responsible.”

“Eh……?”

“I must have done something that makes Claudia-sama angry and depressed.”

Perhaps it is because Millania is familiar with his best friend’s personality, she does not think much of what Violette said. Even he does not understand what actually happened, yet he still grasps the situation when he thinks logically.

“I just wanted to do something because he has been down for a whole day, but it turned out it would be better to listen to him directly from it.”

“I’m sorry for not being able to help.”

“No, I should be the one apologizing for calling you when you’re going for lunch. I wonder if there are still empty seats……”

“It’s fine, I intended to get a takeout right from the start.”

She mixed a little lie, but it is still partly true. She planned to eat at the cafeteria if there is an empty seat, but it has been a while since the last time she met Millania. There is still enough time to have lunch, but takeout lunch would be the best choice if she wants to spend the day peacefully.
The dining hall is also quite large, but the number of seats is less than the size of the dining hall, so it does not feel cramped. There are also more students who enjoy their lunch outside peacefully.

“Right now, other students should have been back to their classroom…..”

She looks outside indifferently, and suddenly Violette looks tense. As she is surprised from what she sees, it also feels like her voices are stuck inside her throat.
From the window, there is nothing but beautifully arranged trees and flowers. Nothing has changed since she first started attending academy, and nothing is strange.

“……Violette-sama?”

In front of Millania, Violette shows an expression with a mix of surprise and confusion, and his voice sounded confused and worried.
Before he can ask the reason, Violette frowns her eyebrows harder. As it seems she is troubled and surprised, her expression looks like she is something the most awful thing for the first time.

“I’m sorry, but I need to go somewhere.”

“Eh, but……”

“I shall excuse myself.”

Of course she would lower her head appropriately, but she does not give the answer, which might give her a minus point. Considering the elegant and perfect Violette, for her unbehaving like this would seem unfit to her usual nature.
Violette leaves him without leaving any doubt, but when he looks outside, there is nothing strange from the direction she looked a while ago.
There is nothing special aside from the beautiful and soothing scenery.
Millania is not that interested unless there is a beautiful woman over there.

“……Eh?”

He moves his gazes around since he senses something off at one point.
It’s not about the colors of flowers. It is just the scenery feels like a flat painting since there are barely any people there.
There should be at least a single person in the courtyard. That place is meant to be for relaxation, and there should be some people there because it is not only popular but also free to enter.
People would spend their free time elegantly as they gather around and talk.
However, Millania cannot seem to see any people there.

The courtyard is not that full of greenery, still it is hard to see the corner at first glance. However, there are some people cornering someone to the wall with grumpy faces. The surrounded person seems to resist, trying to say something, but that person is getting even more cornered.

He cannot hear anything, and he does not know about the circumstances. Still, he knows that it is not a good situation.

“Don’t tell me……?”

He remembers the sight of Violette leaving him with a stern face.
He wonders if she saw this. That was why she started running.

“Damn—“

Without a second thought where she would be heading, Millania soon runs once he realizes.
