I Don’t Want to Become a Villainess, So I Aim at Becoming a Perfect Lady Together with the Prince! - Chapter 89
Chapter 89: 5
I couldn’t hide my confusion at Chloe’s suggestion.
Ask her spirit directly? But what about it?
”I asked Al’s contracted spirits before. He said that the result would be a normal contract. But I failed. So, I don’t think there’s any point in asking.”
“Which spirit is His Highness Allan’s spirit?”
“Spirit of Fire.”
When I told her that I had no problem at least telling her the type of spirit, Chloe said confidently.
”It’s not the same kind as me! Hey, you wanna give it a try? I think different kinds of spirits look at different things. I think it would make sense just to ask them.”
I didn’t think their responses would change even when the type of spirits are different. However, Chloe’s opinion seemed to be saying so. Or rather, she apparently wanted to be helpful to me somehow.
I was happy about that feeling, so I gave a small nod.
”If you say so…..”
“Ooh! Great! Well, I’ll get right to it!”
Clenching her fist, Chloe vigorously called out the name of the spirit she’d signed up for.
Instantly, the spirit that appeared took my breath away. A spirit of light appeared, different from Al’s flame spirit and the dark spirit I had seen once, but a spirit of light appeared.
Golden hair flowing down to her waist and golden eyes. The spirit with a lively expression looked up at Chloe happily, and immediately afterwards, for some reason, it went rigid. Then she shifted her gaze to me and–.
I thought she let out a shout, but then she disappeared from the spot.
Chloe, who had made a contract with the spirit, was surprised by the spirit that suddenly disappeared. Chloe hurriedly tried to call out the contracted spirit again, but the spirit didn’t even reply.
Chloe looked at me, but I couldn’t understand either.
Because when I was with Al’s spirit, it was normal. The only time they acted like that was when they first signed up for that. In case you’re wondering, a similar thing happened when the dark spirit appeared and was about to make a contract with me.
“Well it seems that I’ve learned that I’m not going to be able to challenge the contract in my current state.”
“No, no, there was also the fact that she screamed when she saw us…’
“I’m glad that you’re trying to comfort me, but as expected, I can’t nod my head at those words.”
”You have already made a contract with the spirit from earlier, haven’t you? I don’t think she’s going to scream and run off against the contract owner. The one where our eyes met. She definitely saw me and ran away.”
“So, but she ran away…..Lili, it’s not proper, right?”
“It has to be it.”
“You know, Lili. Why are you being so calm earlier?”
I tilted my head at Chloe’s words. Then she stated her opinion in a matter-of-fact manner.
”It’s not that I’m calm or anything. It’s just that all I could think was, I knew it, so…..I don’t know if my emotions are affected or not.”
I had a feeling that somewhere along the line this was going to happen. A spirit that didn’t even respond to me when I call it now. And looking at it again this time, I must be very much disliked by the spirits.
–With this, there’s no point in trying for a third time.
It’s useless, at least until we found out why, so let’s not do it. Not that I was cool with it. I felt like I had a gaping hole in my chest.
I guess the truth was that I’m more shocked than I thought. It’s because I found out that even other contracted spirits abhorred me. But in this situation, why was Al’s spirit unconcerned? I wanted to know the reason.
Oh, but before that–.
“Thanks, Chloe. Thanks to you, for now, I know that it’s not a good idea to make a spirit contract right now. It’s so much easier to get away from the contracted spirits. I must have something in me that makes them hate me so much.”
Chloe exclaimed, but I didn’t think she was wrong.
“Giving up is not an option at the moment. It’s okay. I expected it, so it’s not too damaging.”
–False. The truth was, I was very hurt and I didn’t want to contemplate it without a second thought. But I promised Al that I wouldn’t give up. I was not going to be able to get away with it.
–I made a promise to Al. We would reach the future we are striving for together.
Then I had no choice but to stand up again and again.
I wouldn’t be able to stand next to him if not. So I didn’t have the time to be sad.
I smiled at Chloe, who looked at me with a worried look on her face. Strong or not, I knew I had to laugh here.
”I’m sorry, but I’ll leave it at that for today. Oh, right. Don’t worry, I’ll make sure to let Al know. I’ll probably have to report back to you later, but I’ll let you know before the long ride.”
“No! You don’t have to worry about me! Right now, Lili’s more…. because, Lili, you’re hurting.”
It’s tragic, and Chloe held me back. I had a friend who was thinking of me. I was so grateful for that.
“Well I won’t say I’m not hurt. But I’ve decided that I would stand up for myself as often as I could to be with Al. Besides, we still have almost two years to go before we get married, you know? I’ll get the spirit contract done by then, as I’m sure I will. I’ll spare no effort to do that, and if there’s any possibility of doing any small thing, I’ll do it.”
After saying it clearly, Chloe rolled her eyes.
“Lili you’re strong. I don’t think I’m that strong.”
“I think everyone has a different point at which they can do their best. Besides, Al told me that he likes me to work hard. I want to be the person that Al likes to be. That’s all.”
”But that’s what it’s all about for Lili, isn’t it?
Nodding, Chloe looked at me firmly and opened her mouth.
”I’ll help you, too. If the spirit escaped because Lili was there, I’ll call the spirit when I’m alone this time. And then I’ll ask her why she escaped, how about that?”
I nodded at that.
“I’m so grateful. I’ve never been able to try the idea of asking a fleeing spirit what’s going on before.”
Al’s spirits didn’t run away, and the dark spirits ran away before they signed up, so I was grateful to be able to talk to the spirits who actually saw me and ran away.
“Thanks, Chloe. It helps.”
I told her sincerely and Chloe shook her head.
“Nope. I just want to be useful to Lili once in a while. Stay tuned. I’ll get back to you as soon as I hear what she has to say.”
“Alright. I’ll do my best to get Al’s answers to you.”
We shook each other’s hands firmly.
I was sad that the spirit had rejected me, but I was glad I talked to Chloe about it. Thanks to that, I might be able to understand why the spirit was rejecting me and why he wouldn’t accept the contract.
–I’m glad I talked to her about it.
I’m glad I trusted my friend and told her as it was.
I sincerely thought so, and urged Luke, who was waiting near the door, to return to the mansion.
