This must be the first time that Lookz has come to eat with us. He still doesn’t like to talk but at least, his relationship with Bella is good now.

What caught my attention the most is…

“Ah…Where are your wings, Lookz?”

I have been wanting to ask this question since I saw him a moment ago. He looks like a normal person with no wings right now.

“I used my magic to hide them because they aren’t a good sight to see at this moment.”

“Hmm…”

Why did he hide his wings at this time? Isn’t that a bit late to do that? Even when he said that he doesn’t like his wings, he made no move to hide them . This time, he intentionally used his magic. That makes me curious about his wings.

“Excuse me, Can I have a look at it?” Am I too straightforward?

Lookz looks around and lightly sighs when his eyes meet with curiosity from both of Bella and my eyes.

“It’s alright. I don’t think to hide it anyway.”

‘flap’

A bird black wings appear just like it grows on his back but…

The color at the tip of his wings is white.

“Your wing!” Bella’s face shows a worried expression like the world is about to come to an end.

“It’s happened last night.”

“W-was the curse finally broken?”

“I’m not sure but I think that it’s because of that.”

“I thought that It’s because of you that the curse was broken but I just knew recently that it’s slowly faded away. Maybe It will take two days to make it completely disappearance.”

Luler doesn’t look interested in this topic and continues to eat his food as I listen to them talking about the curse. Akane holds her tray to our table.

“Don’t you normally eat only one plate?” I ask her.

“I want to bring this to Teo. He must be starving right now.”

“That’s right. I think you have to hurry because there’s only half an hour left”

“I will be back!”

Akane runs to the exit with a tray in her hands. I always warn her about running in the corridor. I hope she won’t slip somewhere.

“You can proudly go back to the angel realm soon.” Bella tells the boy near her.

“That’s right, I will tell everyone that the curse can’t do anything to me.”

“Yes, Lookz-sama is perfect.”

“Humph! You always say that.”

“I only told you the truth.”

When the pink eyes widen, the thing that I see in her eyes is…

Why does it look empty?

I can’t concentration in an afternoon class because I keep looking at Bella’s face. Her action made me anxious. Why did she have to smile while looking impassive at the same time? Isn’t she supposed to be happy if the curse is broken?

“Shiwa, I will go to the restroom.”

Bella turns to speak with me during a break.

“I will go with you too.”

“Yes…”
It’s too risky to leave her alone. Akane who currently deprive of sleep is using the time during the break to catch her sleep so I don’t want to wake her up.

‘tap tap tap’

Bella’s footsteps are slow. If she really wants to go to the restroom, she should walk quickly that this.

“Shiwa…”

“W-what? What is it, Bella?”

“I have to say thank you very much for all of your guidance. I archive my goal because of you.”

“Umm…It’s a good thing that It went well”

“Ah…”

“…”

“I know that you are worried but can I ask you for something?”

“Bella”

“Shiwa is very clever. You can easily read a person face like a book so I think that you know…what I’m feeling right now. I don’t have any regret at all and this’s a promise. The promise with Lookz-sama.”

“What is your promise?”

“I can’t tell you that but…please, don’t stop me for what I’m going to do next.”

“I can’t do that.”

“Please, we are different from each other. Shiwa should understand what the meaning of this.”

You only said ‘please’ this and ‘please’ that!! Stop making a look like that!!

It looks like…

A scene that I caught a glimpse a time long ago. The scene that showed Bella who smiles with a blank face congratulates her master and his loved one.

After that, she decides to do an unexpected thing…

“..Fine, I won’t stop you.”

“Thank you for worrying about me and thank you for everything.”

Bella leaves me standing alone in the corridor. Her back slowly walks out of my sight.

If I can’t stop you then I will go find a person who can stop you!

I quicken my step and runs to the class one. Luler and Lookz are talking quietly talking to each other when I walk up to them. I can feel everybody’s eyes on me as I stop in front of Lookz’s desk.

“What is it?” He frowns. I don’t think he understands how much dire this situation is right now.

“Bella is walking in a corridor right now.”

“W-what? Why do you have to tell me…”

‘Pang!’

I slam my hand down on his desk making a booming sound in the room. Normally, I don’t like to draw attention to myself but this time…

“What did you promise with her!?”

“What?”

“The promise about your wings! You promised something with her, didn’t you!?”

“…”

He think for a bit then It looks like he remembers something…

“Bell, damn it!”

He stands up then run out of the classroom. Finally, there’s nobody Bella wants other than you. Hurry up, you, her knight in shining armor. I don’t know what the promise is about or why did they have to do this but…

The most important thing right now is her life…

“Shiwa?” Luler look at me with suspicious in his eyes.

sigh…

I think that this is the most that I can do.
