>He seemed to be in a hurry to get into his father Noyce’s office, but soon after that, he went to his room, cleaned himself up quickly, changed his clothes, and went outside again immediately to straddle his horse.

As he was about to leave again, Beatrice popped out in front of him.

Beatrice recognized her brother through the window of her room and rushed downstairs to talk to him.

Beside her, Edgar, who tried but failed to stop her, and a stunned-looking Marquez were waiting a short distance away.

“Brother.”

“Stay in the house, Trice.”

Rembrandt looked down from his horse as Beatrice stood in front of him.

“You want me to just sit back and relax and not know what’s going on? Is it because I’m sick and useless?”

“…what nonsense.”

“Artie, that’s not true.”

Beatrice interrupted their hasty attempts to deny the question with her own momentum and continued speaking.

“No, that’s what I meant.
If Marquez and my brother are working, that means Alejandro is involved, right? No, or Natalia.
Either way, it’s my fault that my brother is so busy.”

“Trice.”

“Please, brother.
I’m glad you’re worried about me.
I know you’re concerned that something might happen to me again.

But this is different.
Don’t tell me to just wait and see.”

“…”

“I won’t ask you to take me there.
But at least tell me what’s going on.
I don’t want to regret that it was all my fault for loving Leopold.”

“…Trice.”

“Because I’ve gotten over the whole thing.
I don’t love Leopold now.”

“…”

Rembrandt was slightly dazed, and was at a loss for words for a moment.

“Really… so that’s the case.”

Rembrandt exhaled heavily and scratched his head.

“I’m sorry, Trice.
It was bad news, and I thought I’d tell you after it was resolved… but it’s reasonable to be more anxious if you don’t know anything.”

Then he looked straight into his sister’s eyes from his horse.

“We have evidence of Alejandro’s crimes, but we can’t find him.
He seems to have disappeared, but then he took that young lady, Natalia Olsen, with him.”

“…eh.”

“I’m in the middle of gathering information.
In the meantime, I’ve come to report to my father and change my clothes.
I think the results should be coming out soon.
As soon as I hear of it, I’ll be on my way.”

“Alejandro and… Natalia.”

“At Leopold’s request, I did not inform the police.
But the Marquise of Reinalpha has been uncooperative.
It was decided that Leopold and I would work with the shadow guards and soldiers of our respective house.”

“That’s…”

The word “uncooperative” reminded Beatrice of what happened before her rebirth.

Come to think of it, even at that time, the Marquis of Reinalpha was against the marriage between Natalia and Leopold.

But such recollections were clouded by Leopold’s continued remarks.

“I’m going to get her out, but I can’t guarantee it.
Alejandro… might even kill Miss Natalia, in my opinion.”

“Eh?”

Beatrice blinked.

I didn’t understand what he meant.

Alejandro to Natalia?

He is obsessed to the point of attacking the men who approach Natalia, but that doesn’t mean he would kill Natalia.

“That’s impossible.
Alejandro cares about Natalia.

He loves to make her laugh and annoy her.

Alejandro will only protect Natalia.
He would attack everything else, but Natalia.”

He’s not going to kill her, she tried to say.

But Rembrandt opened his mouth faster than her.

Information about the death of his sister Milch, a fact that all parties involved in the case, except Alejandro, believe to be true.

“It’s not impossible.
Although it is being treated as an accident, he still killed his own sister in the past.”
