I tried to solve it.
After finishing a lonely dinner, the only thing left to do is to go to bed...... when there is a knock on the door.
I'm not sure who it is at this late hour, ...... I'm heading to the front door with a faint hope that it might be Cecilia.
It's only at times like this that a savior that I didn't call for comes.
I'm not going to be the only one who can do that.
''Hey, sorry to bother you this late at night,''
A savior for me has descended.
Caius is called the Cupid of Love.
Caius would give me the hope that the blur in my chest would be .......
'I don't mind at all. Come on in.
He led Caius into the living room.
But something doesn't feel right.
Smoothly, Caius is just coming into the house ...... hmm?
'Caius. You're not carrying a coffin on your back today?
Yeah. Unfortunately, I didn't bring her with me today. He's been too busy with work lately. I tried to restrain him gently, as I usually do, but he got away.
If someone who doesn't know what's going on is listening to the story, they'll have to wait for the knights to be contacted.
You'll also get a nudge that it's not a shame.
I'll end with a word of thanks because I know the situation.
"So what did you come all the way out here today?
Of course. I'm here to ask you where the ring is.
'I see. Caius must have felt my resolve.
You had read the timing of the proposal when you bought the ring.
No amount of caius could have come at such a good time.
Rather than dismiss it as a coincidence, I can only admire Caius' observation of his longtime love cupid: .......
'There's a song going around in Blyling about making love in the night sky. I got the idea from the song.
Oh, there you go!
It was true what they said about it spreading throughout the Kingdom of Clarines.
I guess it's better to listen to it without reacting verbatim anymore.
If you scream every time you hear it, your throat can't keep up.
I knew it was you guys. We heard a lot of talk on the way here. Congratulations, you're like a blessing to the whole country.
Yeah, what the hell. You know what?
For me, it's embarrassing.
Cecilia is not full of it, so it's even more embarrassing.
I understand your worries, but rejoice now, because your wishes have come true. You can't help but be happy that your wish has come true. Take this as a celebration.
Saying that, Caius handed me a pair of glasses.
I don't remember going out shopping with Cecilia when we moved in for the dishes.
Me and Cecilia don't drink much alcohol, either.
We often drink the tea Cecilia makes for us.
I suggest that you have a drink on occasion when you are spending the night together as a couple. ─ When we spend the evening together, I would suggest that we have a drink on occasion, because it gives us a chance to speak our minds. Of course, it's not compulsory, so I hope you'll use it even when you're drinking a less intoxicating fruit wine.
It's also a popular item sold in Blyling, right?
I will take the liberty of using it.
Well, now that Caius is here, we have a lot to talk about.
Now that he's here, let's have him listen.
To tell you the truth. "As a matter of fact, my impending marriage to Cecilia has been a bit of a whirlwind. I think it's because of the fact that Cecilia has the kitchen sealed off. Even the guys I'm close to told me not to push myself away because of my marriage.
'As far as I'm concerned, I'm not sure who's right. What's the right thing to do for Cecilia?
'Hmm ...... So that's what you mean by trouble. You're right, ...... remember how I told you I didn't think it would be a bad idea to take the time to get to know the other person?
'Oh, ...... I remember that.'
That's when we had a men's party.
The one where Yuga and Duke and Raven were also there.
'You care about the other guy, you take away his personality. If you keep doing that, you'll be a boring husband.
It's boring. ......
What did she want from you?
Cecilia gave me ......
When I close my eyes, all I can picture is the days of preaching.
Sitting upright, listening to Cecilia's grateful talk, and then getting in trouble again and being grabbed by the scruff of the neck.
'No, no, no. It's not like that.
I shake my head and reconsider.
'Is that what Cecilia was looking for from me ...... stimulation?'
'I feel like I'm choosing the wrong words, but ...... well, I guess that's about it. I don't want to embarrass you too much, but don't lose yourself.
Yeah, it's something different.
I'll just be myself.
Consultations are important.
'Haha, you're right. You should realize that you have someone you can rely on. You can't wait until someone else is depending on you to do it for them.
A relationship that's going to grow because it's going to change.
'Yes. If you don't solve the problem by being asked to, call me. Caius, the Cupid of Love, will be there to help you. Oops, I'll only ask for love advice, though.
With that, Caius left and .......
'Yes. Please invite me to the wedding. I'll bring Shea with me then.
I'm hoping you won't have to carry a coffin on your back.
'Oops, I'll have to think about that. Well then, I've missed Shea and I'll leave you with this. ...... Congratulations on the successful proposal.
Caius left with his blessing.
Really, you know, ...... I felt like a Cupid in love, as expected.
The next day I slept soundly even though I was lonely.
It's a good thing that you're able to have a good time.
I'm not sure if the informer is following me or not.
I'm curious, but for now, let's listen to Cecilia's story.
'Mr. Yoki. I've been quite distressed.
'No, I'm sorry Cecilia was thinking about it, too. That's why I asked Duke and the others for advice. ......
I have to explain that Cecilia doesn't need to be bothered any more.
'Does that mean it's settled?'
Well, that's a relief.
Caius was here too, so I feel like I've been able to reaffirm what I need to do and what I'm ready to do.
'I see. ......'
He averted his gaze with a disappointed look on his face.
Funny, now that my worries are gone, I don't have to worry about anything else.
I thought he'd be happy to see me.
'I see your pre-wedding trip has been cancelled: ......
How can that be!
Wait a minute. That's different.
Of course you want to go on a trip with Cecilia, even if your problems are solved.
'Since there's no point in going now that Yoki-san's troubles are over,'
Don't look so sad.
What's going on, what's going on?
I'm not supposed to be the one to solve this one myself.
"I want to go on a trip with Cecilia. I want to go on a trip with Cecilia, regardless of what I'm going through. I'm going on an exciting, exciting trip, and I want to be remembered for it.
It's a good idea to have a hand gesture of persuasion coupled with a sense of slowness.
If you ask this much, you should be able to convince me that it's Cecilia: ...... Oh?
I noticed something suspicious about Cecilia.
I kept my eyes downcast from the middle of my persuasion ...... and I looked closer.
She's not sad, she's laughing.
His shoulders are shaking and he's holding his mouth, so it's confirmed.
'It's funny. I don't think Cecilia was in the mood to do that.
I'm not angry, definitely not.
I'm just wondering.
'Hmph, actually, I talked to your mother about it and she told me to try this kind of attitude once. I couldn't help but laugh when Yoki-san started getting more impatient than I expected.
Celia's put in, huh?
Ggh, I'm sorry I got caught, but there's a part of me that's glad I got to see a rare Cecilia.
Yeah, we can't just end up getting screwed over.
I'm going to try something I wouldn't normally do here.
I slowly walk up to Cecilia and touch her cheek with one hand and say a few words.
"Thank you for showing me a different side of you.
No two things are unfamiliar at the same time.
The result of biting as hard as you can is a picture of grabbing your lover's right cheek and freezing.
A few seconds of silence, and then .......
'You're still the same old Yoki, aren't you, Yoki?
He said he was able to get a smile on his face.
...... Let's do better than that.
