“Claudia, before we leave…”
“Yes, Alex-sama?” Claudia asked curiously.
“I actually need to talk to you about something.”
“Ah… yes, it’s okay, the truth is that I also want to tell you something.” She spoke while thinking about the very realistic dream she had had.
This time it was Alexander’s turn to be curious.
“From what you’ve told me, I don’t think it’s a dream.”
Alexander replied thoughtfully, sitting on a rock across from Claudia.
“That’s exactly what I thought, it felt too real…”
“Well, I think it’s something like a ‘revelation’, or to be more specific, I think it is about one of those cases where the Soul of a deceased person contacts their loved ones in the living world. I don’t particularly think it’s anything unusual, and I don’t think that Necromancy has much to do here, by the way, what were you talking about with Klauss in the dream?”
“…” Claudia blushed at the thought of this, and couldn’t help but remain silent for a few moments to then speak, “I… I talked to Klauss about my future… about what he didn’t want to be a burden on my conscience, and supported me in whatever I decided, (as in Love…)”
Claudia spoke normally until the last part, which she said with a suggestive blush on her face.
“…” Alexander’s eyes widened wide at this, as he couldn’t even begin to imagine that something like this would happen…
He even touched his throat due to a sudden shortage of water.
“And also… I made up my mind, until now, my subordinates, my few female friends and Klauss, were my family… But actually, my dream was always to start my own family, with the person I… l-l-love…and have lots of healthy b-b-ba-ba-babies…”
Claudia had several speech tics and her face grew even redder.
“That’s why, from this moment on, I will follow my dreams. The experience I went through, it taught me that I should enjoy my life more.”
She said with conviction while with her cheeks flushed, she stared at Alexander.
Alexander blushed a little, not because he was embarrassed by what Claudia was saying to him, but by the fact that their gazes were simply too uncovered…
Claudia fell silent as well, but still looked up at Alexander with the same intensity.
Some cricket had started chirping in the place, and it could be clearly heard from the silence there.
Seeing that Alexander did not change his expression, Claudia’s face was starting to crumble. Then, her eyes became moist and she lowered her head…
But, just as she was about to wipe her tears away…
“I’m sorry… I’m not really very assertive on these kinds of subjects.” Alexander took her hands
Moving closer to her, and said apologetically from close proximity.
“Uhh huh, never mind, that doesn’t matter.” Claudia shook her head, but this time she had a grin so big it didn’t fit on her face, still with wet eyes, looking at Alexander’s hands gripping hers.
Alexander brought his right hand up and lightly caressed Claudia’s cheek.
She paused for a moment, and also placed her hand on Alexander’s, then looked up at him.
“You wouldn’t mind… waiting one more day, Alex-sama?”
“Of course not, I would wait a lifetime for a woman like you.” Alexander answered her with his face only inches away from Claudia, who herself upon hearing this, had an expression intoxicated and drenched with Love…
“I want to wait one more day, as a show of respect to Klauss, this is the least I can do.”
Claudia, after a few seconds looked determinedly at Alexander, and he smiled at her.
“I understand perfectly, we will do that, too, for some reason I think now that I would have liked to have met Klauss, he sounds like a nice person.”
Claudia then adorned an amused smile on her lips.
“Hehehe, I think you and he should have been good friends, Alex-sama, hehehe, especially if you like to haggle over the prices of everything every time you buy something.”
“Mn? Was he a merchant?” Alexander asked.
“Alex-sama, he wasn’t just a merchant, he was the best merchant, hehehe, he once went to sell two products he had gotten for a very low price, to a store, but the store was being shoplifted at that moment, do you know what happened, Alex-sama?” Claudia asked Alexander as she covered her mouth, holding back her laughter.
Alexander had a sign of doubt in his head, and he shook his head softly.
“When he left there, he had sold one product to the store merchant, and the other to the thief, both seemed so satisfied with their purchases, that even the thief ceased to be a thief at that moment, and the merchant gave Klauss a large quantity of products for free and claiming that he would lower all his other prices to 10% of what they were.”
Somehow, Alexander suddenly felt that this guy was quite the character…
Seeing Claudia smiling, Alexander hopelessly did too, and somehow the talk turned to become a time where Claudia talked about her past and her experiences.
Alexander listened to everything attentively, while his eyes did not lose sight of her person, for tomorrow, once Claudia’s Mourning for Klauss was over, she… would be his wife.
Then, Claudia remembered something after talking for a while.
“Ah, that’s right, Alex-sama, you also had something to tell me, didn’t you?”
“What is it about?”
She asked happily.
Alexander, a person blessed with the Photographic Memory Skill, at this time began to sweat a little as he noticed that he had forgotten this small detail.
Claudia just tilted her head to the side, and a question mark could be seen peeking out from there.
