p>That was the agreement made between Leopold and Rembrandt.

“Mm, sure.”

Checking the contents, Rembrandt nodded in satisfaction.

“The goods that were supposed to have gone down with the ship, the goods that were supposed to have been stolen by the bandits, the exact items and names of those items are somehow listed in this forged account book prepared by the people of the Reyes Chamber of Commerce.
It’s as if they have already confessed that they orchestrated the whole thing.”

It is obvious that he would win if he took the case to court, but it would be too much trouble to do so, and Rembrandt’s argument is that if he could get the same thing without spending money or time, he would do it with the least amount of effort.

With this evidence, he intends to go to Mackay, the head of the Reyes Chamber of Commerce, to negotiate after this.

However, even Leopold was aware that this was a threat in the name of negotiation.

Either way, this is itーーー

“…I guess that settles it.”

Leopold said with a sunny expression.

Finally, they could cut down Alejandro’s power.
He could no longer touch them, it was a remark that he had thought so.

The night sky has already begun to turn light.

Leopold was especially exhausted from lack of sleep, fatigue, and injuries, as were the others.
He wanted to return to the house and rest as soon as possible.

Nevertheless…

“No, not yet.”

“…eh?”

Rembrandt returned to Leopold, who had lost his mind, with a straight face.

“Take a good look.
You don’t see the important guy, do you?”

Leopold is puzzled by what he meant, but Rembrandt points to the servants whom he had just detained with his right hand.

He looked at the faces of each of the slaves and the servants in the backroom he was using for work, and then…

Leopold also noticed.

“He, Alejandro, is gone…?”

“I’m telling you, he’s not even at the villa.
He hasn’t been back here since yesterday.”

“What?”

Rembrandt glanced sideways at Leopold, whose eyes widened, and let out an obvious, exaggerated sigh.

“…I thought you would attach it to the stone.”

“What do you mean?”

“I went out of my way to tell you how you got in here.
If that had been the case, there would have been a person who should be protected first.”

“…eh?”

Leopold blinked his eyes a few times, not immediately grasping the meaning of his words when it was pointed out to him with dismay.

Leopold ruminated on the point he had just received.

How we came to sneak in here, that is.

Because I was sabotaged by that man who is obsessed with Natalia in order to get rid of his conspicuous self.

I was her lover, and I was in the way…

There would have been a person who should be protected firstーーー

“ーーー…!”

“…yes.
Your girlfriend, that girl.”

Rembrandt gave a quiet look at Leopold, who turned pale in an instant.

“I heard Alejandro took her last night.”
