Volume 10: Episode of White Light

The Thirty-sixth Chapter

by Yura Kairi
Translation by Marfisa

[69]
I kept walking through the desert one night, chasing the moon.

Walking and walking, I eventually gave up.
I knew I could never catch up to the moon in the heavens.

Perhaps if I walked that way to the ends of the earth, I could find the place the moon returns to?

[71]
Zephel- Luva.

Luva- Ah, Zephel. Welcome.

Luva- You've been showing up often recently.

Zephel- Is that bad?

Luva- No, no. As for me, I'm relieved to know how you're doing.

Luva- Anyway, I was always anxious whether you weren't up to something where I couldn't keep an
eye on you.

Zephel- What are you talking about. When you get engrossed in a book, everything else slips right
past you.

Luva- If I had just one less worry, I could concentrate on reading, couldn't I?

[72]
*muttering*
Luva- Ah... but concentrating too much often ends up upsetting my timing. I have to be careful.
Truly, where I'm concerned...

Zephel- ......
Hasn't she come today?

Luva- Do you mean Rosalia?

[73]
Luva- Are you concerned about her?

Zephel- That's not what I'm saying!

Zephel- Mainly, how do you feel about her?

Luva- Er... wh, what......
Ah,
That is,

[74]
Luva- Ah, that's precisely one of my worries right now.

Zephel- He kind of bungled it.

[76]
Luva-sama, Luva-sama, Luva-sama!!

[77]
I want to ascertain his feeling even a little.
He always evades me.

I'm sure he like books more than me!

*gasp*

*clapping*

[78]
Julious- Splendid. That was truly a performance worthy of you.

Rosa- Thank you.

*clatter*

Julious- It has been a long time since I've heard your violin. You express more of a wealth of
emotion than before.

Rosa- Really?

Julious- Yes. There was a frightening intensity around the last movement.

[79]
Julious- Your sound has changed so much even I can recognize it...
Aren't you happy to be praised by me in an artistic view?

Rosa- No, it's not that.
... What you say is always right to me.

Rosa- I like talking to you, Julious-sama.

The pride of high nobility, the duty, the responsibility.
We can share the same air...

Rosa- You're an unwavering guidepost to me, who was raised as a Queen Candidate.

[80]
Rosa- Being with you,
I have the feeling I can return to my original self.

Julious- I'm happy if I can be of use to you.

[81]
Luva- The balance of the cultural level and technological strength of the people is fair.
It seems the cultivation is proceeding well.

[82]
Julious- Luva.

Luva- Julious.

Julious- Felicia and Elysion, the progress of the two continents is equal now.
No, Rosalia has a little lead, doesn't she?

Julious- If it goes on like this, Rosalia will become Queen.

Luva- ... That's right.

[83]
Julious- Luva.

Luva- Yes?

Julious- How do you feel about Rosalia?

Luva- Huh?

Luva- Huh!?

*dumbfounded*

Luva- Ah, uh, um, um, um,
Julious!?

Julious- Calm down.

[84]
Luva- Ah... ahhh, you surprised me.
You saying something like that suddenly.

Julious- Because the Queen Candidates' hearts are uncertain, electing the next Queen is out of
the question.

Julious- There may be conflict among Rosalia's feelings of attachment for you and her position as
a Queen Candidate.

Julious- Even I understand that.
Because I understand, I'm worried...

[85]
Luva- Julious...

Julious- As the head of the Guardians, I should eliminate things that could become obstacles to
the Queen Examination.

Julious- But I wonder if that is truly proper.

Julious...

Perhaps, of what happened that time?

[86]
Are you thinking of it too?

That the time when Her Present Majesty was elected,

If someone had taken a little more different actions...?

[87]
Julious- I need an answer from Rosalia.

Luva- I understand.

Luva- I... I'm a little bewildered by her direct affection.

Luva- Ah, anyway, I never thought I'd be getting advice about something like this from you.

Julious- I'm poor at dealing with women. I'm confused especially by girls that age.
*Do what you can.*

Luva- So that's why you harden your expression and end up unintentionally taking a lecturing tone.

Julious- Don't laugh.

[88]
Luva- ... I'm the same way. Frankly, I don't know how I should treat them.

Luva- But that won't do... will it.

Ange- Rosalia, aren't you going to Luva's room today?
A while ago, you looked like you were coming back from the Royal Research Institute.

Rosa- What are you talking about, Angelique?

[89]
Rosa- I don't have any special business with him.

Ange- Really?

Rosa- *Really.*

Ange- Oh, it's Zephel-sama. Hello!

Rosa- Hello, Zephel-sama.

Zephel- ... Hey.

Ange- Zephel-sama, about the phonograph in my room, when I did as you showed me, I fixed it!
*Occasionally.*

Zephel- Yeah, it was really simple, right?

[90]
Zephel- Though it might be too much for a certain mechanically challenged someone.

Rosa- I can at least listen to music too.

Zephel- Though you say what anyone can do so self-importantly.

Rosa- Self-importantly? Aren't you the one who's arrogant!?

Zephel- It's you, you!
*Idiot.*

Rosa- *It's an idiot who calls people idiot!*

Ange- It kind of seems you two can't meet without getting into a fight.

[91]
Rosa- We're not fighting!

Zephel- We are not!

Ange- Kya!

Ange- Alright. I won't bother you two anymore.
Please have your friendly fight.

Rosa&Zephel- You're wrong, I said!!

Rosa- *Ooh, that girl!*

Zephel- *hmph*

[92]
*silence*

Zephel- Oh... well.

Zephel- Hey.
There's something I have to talk to you about for a bit.
