So, since he already decided, he could only move at midnight, and that’s the reason why he came at this time of night.
Well, one might wonder why he was so concerned about Natalia, there is one reason.

“Sorry about that, Marquez.”

I may have underestimated the loyalty of the shadow guard to our Marquize.

With that in mind, he candidly apologized.

“…no, it’s not my place to intrude.”

“No, I think my father must be getting tired of it by now.
When I return to the mansion, I will report to him.
Depending on his judgment, I may explain the situation to you as well.”

“I understand.”

“Well, I think it’s even more confusing if you ask me.”

Then Rembrandt chuckled.

At that time, though, Marquez did not quite understand the meaning of what Rembrandt had said.

“Wait a minute… rebirth?”

“You can think of it as “having a precognitive dream”, but either way, it doesn’t change the fact that it sounds fishy.”

Rembrandt, who had made an appointment with Noyce as soon as he returned, went into his father’s office to talk with him for a while.
Later, Marquez was called back in and went inside as well.

Here, Marquez realized the meaning of Rembrandt’s words earlier.

Noyce also had a subtle expression on his face.

Certainly, they would not have been inclined to listen to Beatrice’s claims until they had some evidence of the suspicious activities of the Reyes’ Chamber of Commerce.
That’s how ridiculous it sounds.

Even so, for Marquez, and perhaps for Noyce as well, the explanation of “rebirth” was still difficult to accept as a reality.
However, the fact that Alejandro’s behavior was reported as confirmed, was enough to suppress their desire to refute it. 

Noyce also seemed to doubt Beatrice’s sanity at first.
Certainly, as Rembrandt claims, he would not have given permission to lend his shadow guard if he had been told about it first.

At this point, Noyce temporarily put the matter of lending the shadow guard on hold and turned his gaze on Rembrandt as the head of the family.

“Then, let’s leave aside the story of Beatrice’s life threatening event in her so-called “previous life” for a moment.
This time, is it in Marquise of Strydom’s interest to side with Leopold, or perhaps, more importantly, the Reinalpha family?”

“…does that mean apart from Beatrice’s wish?”

Our family is not so good-natured as to move five shadow guards to do charity work for the Reinalpha family.”

“Of course.
I have discussed this with Leopold.”

Say it.”

“When everything is settled, our Marquis family intends to absorb the largest trading company in the country, the Reyes Trading Company.
The Reinalpha family will not interfere in this matter.
This is the condition for lending Leopold a hand.”

Noyce raised an eyebrow.

“So… not only the son, but also the current head of the family is black.”

“I can’t say for sure yet, but the son did all those things.
I don’t think we can say we don’t know anything about it.
At the very least, we could put them under our control.”

“I see.”

Leaning against the back of the sofa, Noyce pondered for a while.

“…but then again, isn’t it a bit much to sneak into a young lady’s room?”

I guess that was still a concern.

Indeed, he could have just asked the shadow guard to give her the letter and gift from Leopold.
There was no need for Rembrandt to go out of his way to do so in any way.

Rembrandt, however, apologized for his behavior.

“I am sorry.
I was a little concerned about the fact that Trice had opened up so much to her and that Alejandro was so obsessed with her.”

“Leopold’s love interest, you can’t get anywhere near that.
What he was interested in was someone Alejandro was obsessed with.”


Then, after a pause, Rembrandt continued.

“His sister, whom Alejandro had been obsessed with in the past, seemed to have been killed by him.”
