“You there, don’t move! There’s no mistake — the personage next to you is Andrea-sama! Why is the young master with you? Depending on your answer, you may not retain your life!”
With piercing sunlight glinting off its edge, a sharp blade was pointed towards our direction.
I was fine with it, but Andrea was right next to me. This guy should use his brain a little.
“I’ll answer your question. But before that, did you forget that Andrea is beside me? Even if it’s unlikely, there’s a risk you might hurt this child. I’ll raise my arms and sit on the ground, so put away those dangerous things.”
“……All right. Don’t do any suspicious movements, got it?”
I slightly distanced myself from the frightened Andrea and sat down on the spot. As soon as I did that, Andrea, who had been dazedly watching as the Watch Committee restrained me, flared up.

Even now, I couldn’t bear to watch on when that face was on the verge of crying.
If I talked to him and got him to calm down, the clever Andrea would probably understand that this situation wasn’t as bad as it looked.
The moment I called out to pacify Andrea, who was still in an emotionally-driven state, my words were drowned out by a low, attractive voice.
“Andrea, what are you trying to do by making such a fuss? When you disappeared, do you know how much these people worried over you?”
“F-father……! Please help, Lilius, he, it’s my fault!”
“……It’s fine, so calm down.”
A good-looking man with a tall stature and powerful, muscular body appeared from the other side of the crowd.
Although this was the first time I saw the Knight Commander with my own eyes, he certainly was beautiful. Just like the term “white lion descendant” indicated, atop his head were a pair of silver-white ears with lovely coats of fur.
From between his thighs, one could see his swaying tail appearing and disappearing. Even though he had a serious face on, his princely looks were still enchantingly vibrant.
It was just that, I was what one would call an animal lover….
“I apologise for the restraints. Can you release him?”
“Andrea’s case might not have been a kidnapping. According to the butler, it was Andrea who suddenly rushed out when the butler was busy settling an important matter. ……Perhaps, we could hold you under observation instead. Would you be alright with this?”
“……It’s fine if it’s just one day. You’ll probably find little that you can press charges for though.”
I answered Knight Commander Moorwright’s words.
That was probably the first time he took a proper look at me. When he caught sight of me, for a moment he stared in astonishment, then furrowed his brows as if he’d chewed a bitter-tasting bug or something.
