The restaurant that Airi and I went to, Restia Zadore, is a high-class restaurant that sells full-course Norden cuisine, but I didn’t really understand the characteristics of Norden cuisine. This was because I had never been in such a restaurant in the real world, so I did not have the opportunity to know the differences between countries. At best, my knowledge was limited to Japanese, Western and Chinese classifications.
However, I know that the food here is good because I have eaten it. If you’re going to spend the same amount of money to eat here, you should eat good food, and that’s why they have private rooms so that you can eat it without hesitation. This way, you can enjoy your dinner without any hesitation.
I ordered a full course of Norden cuisine, the main selling point of Restia Zadre, and a glass of wine. I ordered a glass of wine and a glass of mineral water for Aili, who doesn’t drink wine. It’s not just this restaurant, but the only alcohol on the menu is wine, and the only drink available is mineral water. The choices are unusually few. The world of Eleanor is truly full of mysteries.
As we proceeded to eat, Airi told me about a problem she was having. She was troubled because she didn’t know table manners. Actually, I don’t know either. Because I don’t know anything about it, I always rent a private room when I go out, even if it’s expensive. In the first place, I don’t want to learn the table manners of this country because I only want to go back to my own world. But since Airi is a child of this world, I guess it’s natural for her to learn.
“It’s good that I joined the academy, but when I look around, all I see are people who are good at eating….”
I didn’t pay attention to it because all I saw was Arthur eating his fill. When I thought about it, Sarun Afia is an aristocratic school. I’m sure many of them have learned their manners well.
“Then you should ask the nobleman’s children to teach you. For example, …..How about Letty?”
She may act like a frank, but Letty is the daughter of Viscount Richell. She’s the child of a noble family. She probably knows table manners and various other manners, and considering our relationship, I think Letty is the best person for Airi to ask.
“I’ll talk to Letty about it.”
Airi smiled with a look of relief on her face. I hadn’t really been paying attention to it, but the fact that eating is so nerve-wracking means that the school probably has a lot of things to worry about. Especially for girls. Well, I guess it’s the same in the real world.
Airi asked me, showing me the back of her right hand. On her middle finger, the Ring of Healing glowed blue.
“When you gave me this ring, you said there’s a classmate who had the same item like me, who was it?”
Character item. An item that can only be worn by a specific person. In the otome game “Eleanore! there are a number of items other than the “Ring of Healing”. There are special items for the heroine, the target, and the villainess. I didn’t know whether to tell her or not for a moment, but it seemed like I couldn’t hide it, so I named one of them.
Iris held her mouth with the shining right hand of the Ring of Healing. You’re all connected to Leticia, Airi marveled. Because it’s a world where you two are the main characters, here.
“It’s Letty, and she has items.”
“Where is it?”
Airi asked me with a twinkle in her big blue eyes, and when I told her it was a little farther than the royal capital, but near Montserr, she smiled and suggested it.
“Me, Glen, and Leticia. Now I want to go get the three of us.”
I nodded my head in agreement, pressured by Airi’s happy face.
“You have my word.”
Airi peeked at me childishly to confirm. So I had no choice but to say, “Okay.” I was really overwhelmed by Airi’s aura.
“I’ll look forward to it.”
This time, she reminded me with a big smile, and before I knew it, I had to promise that I would make arrangements. Airi looks like a soft-spoken person, but in fact she is very pushy. I don’t know if it’s the protagonist’s compensation or her natural talent that I don’t find it unpleasant at all.
As I ate my food, which came out slowly and calmly, Airi asked me many questions about me, and time passed as I answered them with a mouthful of wine.
“Do you enjoy listening to me talk like this?”
“Yes, it’s fun.”
Airi smiled happily. She said that she never gets bored with me because my actions and ideas are so unpredictable and unpredictable. I hadn’t thought of it that way myself, so it was a really surprising reaction. As I sipped my new glass of wine, I talked about my past.
“Well, I’m here now because of Salz.”
“Yeah, he’s my father.”
Airi’s face turned into a scowl.
“Um, Glen-san, do you call your father by his first name?”
Oh, I thought. I guess I slipped up a little with the alcohol. Well, I don’t usually call my parents names. But even if you hide it, you’ll find out sooner or later. This will probably end our friendship, but I can’t help it. I had no intention of hiding it, and I decided to be honest with Airi about it.
“Salz is blood-related to me, father and son. But our souls are strangers.”
“My body is from this world, but my soul is from another world. One day I suddenly became Glenn Alford. That’s why I’m Glen, but at the same time I’m not Glen.”
Airi was probably confused, staring at us rigidly at one point.
“My name is Koichi Kenzaki. You call me Kouichi Kenzaki, by the way.
I was honestly happy to hear Airi call me by my name. This is a good memorial.
“So Glen-sa. can be Koichi-san and Koichi-san can be Glen-sa .”
“Yes. That’s a good interpretation.”
“If that’s the case, it means nothing will change, right? You’ve always been Glen-san and Koichi-san, right?”
Heh, there! I froze for a moment at the unexpected response. I froze for a moment at the unexpected response, but Airi nodded her head as if she understood. I thought she would definitely be taken aback, but I didn’t expect a full affirmation.
“You know, Glen, you know so much. It’s the same with today’s ring. It seems like you knew it was there before.”
As she said this, Airi showed me the back of her right hand. The healing ring glittered in the air.
“I’m surprised, but at the same time I’m not surprised. If it’s Glen-san, it’s natural for him to do so.”
I’ve been recognized! This trust, I will never betray it. If I betray her, I will suffer the consequences for sure. As expected of a heroine, the power of belief is unbelievable. I sipped my wine and tried my best to keep my composure as my expression faded.
“Thank you, Airi.”
Smiling, Airi smiled at me.
“I’m grateful and respectful to Salz, my father, and my mother, Nina. Robert, Lisa and Jill. I love the whole Alford family. I’m grateful to have been a part of their family.”
“But that’s not the same as the life I’ve lived as Koichi Kenzaki. We’re family, but at the same time we are not family.”
It was all true. I don’t know if it’s right for a person who has lived for half a century to express his true feelings to a girl who is not even 20 years old, but it’s what I’ve been feeling since I came to the Eleanore world, and it’s what I really feel. I’m ashamed to say this, but I think I may be putting my faith in Airi’s healing power. This time, Airi opened her mouth.
“I think I know how you feel, Glen-sam. My parents aren’t really my parents either.”
Looking down a little, Airi began to speak.
“My father and mother died after I was born, so my current parents, who were friends of my mother’s, raised me and.”
“It must be Mr. and Mrs. Laurent.”
This is the relationship between Mr. and Mrs. Laurent, Airi’s foster parents, and Airi. This is one of the major points at the end of [Eleanore!] This is one of the major points at the end of the story. But it’s not something I want to talk about now, and it’s not something I want to touch.
“Yes. I can’t thank you enough.”
Her big blue eyes were filled with thin tears.
“We should be grateful, you know, for each other.”
“I know it wasn’t something to hide, but it makes me feel better. Thank you.”
I nodded my head and felt honestly grateful to Airi. He really is a good boy, Airi.
“No. Me neither. I’m glad I told you the truth.”
Airi replied with tears in her eyes but a radiant face. I put the wine in my mouth again.
“It’s been a good day, despite everything.”
I raised my glass of wine to Airi, who agreed and drank it down.
