Chapter 116: Genuine

The morning shone inside the town of Agrona, we just had our breakfast and were about to leave to have a tour around the town.

We’re currently standing in front of the mansion. Preparing for our departure.

I put my hands on my waists and stared at Misha standing in front of me. “Are you sure you don’t want to come with us? We will tour around the town and eat tons of food.”

Misha shook her head. “Hmm mmm. I’m fine.”

What’s up with her suddenly getting lazy to come with me? Although I know that the only reason that she was insisting to come with me before was because of the war. Welp, I guess it’s because it’s over now and she is no longer that concerned to me.

I nodded. “If you say so.” I shifted my gaze toward the person standing next to her. “How about you, Karoon?”

She lazily stretched her arms and forced a yawn. I knew it was forced, it was pretty obvious, especially for someone extremely energetic like her. “I’m not in the mood for a walk outside, Mister Casimir. I will just stay here and… do things.” Upon seeing someone coming out of the door, she immediately jumped to hug her. “Tan-tan! You look great today!”

Tanya just let Karoon hug her. “We should go. Why are you 3 still standing here?”

“We would love to, but I’m afraid we’re not coming with you, we’ll just leave the touring job to Mister Casimir. Hmm… as always, you smell so nice, Tan-tan!”

“You won’t come with us?” She shifted her gaze to Misha who immediately shook her head and smiled at her. “Why?” Instantaneously, her eyes darted at me.

I shrugged. “Don’t look at me like that, I didn’t do anything.”

“Oh! The time is running fast, you should go now. And don’t forget to tell us about what happened on the tour, huh!” Karoon happily pushed Tanya towards the black carriage in front of us.

“Take care, Big bro Casimir, Big sis Tanya!” Misha waved her hand to us while expressing a big smile on her adorable face.

I narrowed my eyes before nodding. “Sure.” I walked towards the carriage, as I passed through Karoon, she raised her thumbs up to me while smiling. I raised my eyebrows. “Huh?”

Are these 2 planning something that they can’t do if one of us is around? That’s why they are delighted to get rid of us 2?

Hmm. Suspicious!

I stared at them while they were smiling at me with my narrowed eyes while closing the door. “Those 2 are up to something. I can feel it.”

“Don’t worry, no matter what it is, I don’t think it is something harmful,” Tanya replied while looking outside. The carriage was already moving.

I put my hand on my chin. “Knowing Karoon and Misha, I can ascertain that you are indeed right. However, jokes on them, no matter what it is, I won’t fall for it.” I chuckled.

Tanya veered her gaze on me. “So, where are you planning to go first?”

“Maybe I can take you first to the meat shops and facilities in the Fang faction, then we can go to the facilities in the Marionette factions next.” I stared at her. “But, it’s up to you, where do you want to go first?”

However, she crossed her arms and stared at me with her slightly opened mouth. “Your plan is to take me to the facilities to check them out?”

Dear Readers. Scrapers have recently been devasting our views. At this rate, the site (creativenovels .com) might...let's just hope it doesn't come to that. If you are reading on a scraper site. Please don't.

“Yeah? Why?”

Isn’t that the whole purpose of this idea? And as far as I know, she’s not the type who likes sightseeing and is a very business-oriented person.

She slowly exhaled while repeatedly nodding. “I see. But I must admit, that’s fairly expected from you.”

“What do you mean by that?”

She never talked after that, not until we reached the marketplace of the Fang faction. Suddenly, our carriage stopped.

“Ahm, the first facility that I want to show you isn’t here. It’s still a few blocks away from here.”

Her proud smile emerged from her face as she opened the door. “I know.”

I followed her with my eyes as she walked down. “Ah, right.”

I hopped down from the carriage and followed her as she joined the crowd of people gathered in the marketplace to buy things.

“Lord Casimir!” The people waved their hands at me as I walked past them.

“Yo!” I raised my hand and smiled until I caught up with Tanya.

Both of her hands were on her back as she slowly and casually walked through the streets. A subtle smile was visible on her face as she looked up at me. “I am in the mood for a walk right now. Similarly, Karoon told me that there is an abundance of good shops around here, so we should visit them. What do you think, Casimir?”

I stared at her puzzling eyes and scratched my cheek using my index finger. “Sure, we can do that.”

However, my eyes instantly widened upon seeing a swarm of people running toward us while carrying something in their hands. All of their eyes were blazing in eagerness while looking at me. 

“Lord Casimir! Taste this food I baked!”

“Lord Casimir! Taste this fruit I picked up!”

“Lord Casimir! Marry one of my 4 daughters!”

“Lord Casimir! Try this aphrodisiac I made!”

This is the exact reason why I have been extremely reluctant to go to the Fang faction marketplace sometimes!

“Ahm… ahm… they are all coming for me!”

“Let’s go for a run then.”

As I turned my gaze to Tanya, what greeted me was her wide smile, while her hand was extending to me. Seeing that expression on her beautiful face really caught me off guard. I was stunned for a moment.

I smiled and reached for her soft hand. “Let’s go!”

“Lord Casimir!”

While laughing, both of us ran away from the swarm of crowds chasing after us. Side by side, holding each other’s hands, and while I was watching her unusual bright smile while running.

The very scenery occurring right in front of my eyes made me think…

Of all the people in this town, I could personally say that Tanya has been one of the most suspicious people around because she holds crucial secrets about why I am in this world. Something is telling me, she knows things that will lead me to a conclusion about why I was summoned here and just decided to not reveal it yet, assuming she actually has a plan to reveal it in the future. However, for some reason, I can’t bring myself to doubt her loyalty. Especially now, after seeing that wide smile while laughing and looking at me with such happiness on her usually emotionless face.

“Run faster, Casimir!”

“That’s exactly what I’m doing! How can you run that fast with such short legs?”

Tanya Latora. What really am I to you?
