Uh, uh, why is this happening…

On top of a shaking horse, Mia was stiff as a board.
In front of her, she could see a slender, tall figure which just mad her more tense.
Riding at night is dangerous, so Mia is currently riding with Dion.
So, it’s just her and Dion and the great outdoors.

He also told her to hold on tight, but she didn’t know where or what to hold on to.
She was scared of holding the wrong place and making him angry.
So, the only thing she could think of doing is freeze and hope she didn’t fall off.

“We’ll stop by the camp, Your Highness.”

“The camp? Why?”

“Because we need to get more torches.
Did you mean to look for something in the forest at night without light?”

Then Dion let out a long sigh.

“Your Highness, your acting is getting sloppy.
The details are missing.”

Acting? Huh? Missing details? What on the moons is he talking about?

Mia tilted her head, wondering what Dion was on about…

“Your whole story is so amateur.
Sure, it may fool my vice-captain… But… Looking for something in the middle of the night? Who would do that? And if you want to go with that story, at least stick with the details to make it believable.
Like how are we going to find anything without torches?”

With that said, Dion turned around over his shoulder.

“You can drop the act now.
The truth is you are going to meet the tribe chieftain directly to talk, isn’t it?”

“…Eh?”

“Or am I wrong, and you pulled me out from my drinking just for nothing?”

Suddenly, Mia felt pressure rising from Dion’s back.
Something cold started running down her spine.
Mia hurriedly opens her mouth…

“O… O… Of course, you’re right.
I mean, you’re not wrong in your first assumption.
That is why I need your cooperation Captain Dion.”

“It’s just as I thought! You’re an interesting one, Your Highness.”

Dion laughs happily.
At the same time, the pressure dissipates.

“Well, I don’t know what you’re going to do, but rest assured.
I’ll accompany you even to the depths of hell.”

Looking back at Dion’s face, Mia noticed it too late.

What? Bloody moons did I just put myself in a dangerous situation?

Then she remembered.
The man in front of her was the man who killed her in the previous timeline.

What in the moons am I doing?

She could only claim that she let her guard down.
She thought that after pulling the soldiers out then everything was done.
This was supposed to be just looking for the hairpin as a precaution…

It seems her relief has blinded her senses and she has exposed herself to danger once again.

This is that! It’s like when the appetizer is really tasty and you eat too much of it that you miss the whole point of the meal; which is of course, the delicious desserts! And you can’t eat the dessert anymore because you’re too full…! Gaaahh! No… Focus!

It’s not a very good metaphor.
In the first place, it’s not even a metaphor that describes her situation.
But Mia was so confused that she muttered something she didn’t understand.
