Chapter 8 : How Long Will This Peace Last?

On the first day, she had a little involvement with Alejandro, but after that, she spent her time at the academy peacefully without exchanging words with either of them in particular.

Of course, Beatrice’s health remains as good as ever.

Whenever she rejoices that she is feeling well for a few days, her body immediately screams.

She would then take a few days off from the academy, and when she felt well again, she would begin attending again.

Beatrice, who came and went, would not have had a single friend without Vivian.

It was just like how Beatrice only had Natalia and Alejandro as her friends before her rebirth.

Surrounded by Vivian and the friends she made through Vivian’s connection, Beatrice gently looked at Natalia.

Friendly and cheerful, Natalia has a friendly relationship with everyone in the class.

However, she is still especially close with Alejandro.

Thus, from a distance, the two are usually seen together.

Alejandro is Alejandro, and like a son of a wealthy merchant, he is very articulate in his speech.
Although his tone is a little rough, he never makes a bad impression.

…before, I used to be there too.

Natalia was sitting on her chair, while Alejandro was standing, leaning against her desk, laughing and chatting, which was a very common sight in this classroom.

They were very friendly.
She hadn’t thought of it before, but now she was amazed at how she was able to mix with them with a nonchalant face.

In fact, those two are now recognized as a couple in the class.
This was not the case before.

Perhaps it was because in her past life, Beatrice got involved with them, and the three of them were always together.
That’s why there was not even a rumor that they were together.

But she wondered what was really going on.
Natalia does not seem to have any special feelings for Alejandro.

Or will Natalia and Alejandro become lovers this time because they have not met Leopoldo?

If so, Natalia and Leopold should have met by now.

As a matter of fact, the mock battle that led to their meeting is coming up next week.

I wonder how it will turn out.

Beatrice clenched her hands tightly.

Beatrice, who has abandoned her love for Leopoldo, has no intention of watching next week’s mock battle, of course.

However, because of her behavioral changes, she felt a little guilty about the fact they will never meet again.

Still, she didn’t want her involvement to ruin their lives as it did before.
It would be a traumatic experience for Beatrice to learn that the people she thought of helping resented her.

…in the first place, it was ignorant of her to think that she could handle it.

It was painful to recall the day when she had enthusiastically proposed a contractual marriage to them, as if she had come up with the best plan.

“Trice? Can I do something for you?”

Vivian voiced her concern about Beatrice, who had been quiet for a long time, which brought her back to her senses.

“Umn, it’s nothing.
Thank you.”

Pushing aside her anxiety and hesitation, Beatrice smiled.

Maybe it’s because she had thought about it in various ways.

When Beatrice returned to the mansion, she was feeling a bit tired.

Maybe I should lie down for a bit until dinner time, Beatrice thought as she left her bag with the maid who greeted her at the entrance.

Then, the butler standing next to the maid quickly holds out an envelope.

“A letter has arrived from Edgar-sama.”

“Well, from Edgar-sama?”

Just hearing that name made her spirit a little brighter.

Edgar, who was studying in the neighboring country of Drieste, wrote to her quite often just as he promised.

Moreover, it has only been about six months since he went abroad to study, and he already came back once to see Beatrice.

Returning to her room, Beatrice hurriedly unsealed the letter and took out the letterhead.

Then, a piece of pressed flower fluttered down from the inside along with the letterhead.

“Oh, such a pretty flower…”

It’s a small evergreen flower that she has never seen in this country.

Beatrice gently placed the pressed flowers on the desk and read through the letter.

As she reads, she occasionally bursts into laughter.

“…fufu… then Edgar-sama…”

The dizziness had somehow subsided, although the sluggishness was still there.

Not to mention the frequency of letters, the content is also completely different from how it was before her rebirth.

His previous letter, which was composed of a series of difficult sentences like a research report, did not make sense to Beatrice when she read it, and always made her wonder how she should write back.

This time, it’s just an ordinary letter.

It begins with seasonal greetings, and the content describes what Beatrice can understand about life in Drieste.
For example, the streets, the famous food and pastries, fashion, and others.

Of course, there is also some information about Edgar’s research, but it was only a bit, such as “I have trouble with a few references” or “I failed in my experiments”.

And at the end, he will conclude it with humourous and kind words, “Take care of yourself.
Don’t overdo it.
Otherwise, I’ll worry about you and it will interfere with my research”.

And there was one more piece of happy news in this letter.

“Will you be back next month…?”

Although Edgar’s behavior, which was completely different from her previous life where they couldn’t even meet, was very mysterious to Beatrice.
However…

The deep relief she feels every time she receives a letter from Edgar, and even though he only came back once to see her, really calms Beatrice beyond measure.

She hasn’t even seen Leopold for almost eight months now.

Beatrice was happy enough to accept such a fact for the second time, as if it was a matter of course, without any disturbances in her heart.
