ing to do that from the beginning, but if Matheus-sama tells me to, I want to try something else.”

Lloyd was slowly approaching me, and I wasn’t sure how Anastasia would react to something like this.
I thought about it for a moment but then settled on the conclusion that Anastasia’s personality would have slapped Lloyd on the wrist.
But, it didn’t matter to me.

“…You’ve changed, Anastasia-sama, haven’t you? I heard that your personality changed because you were poisoned… Is it really possible for you to change this much?”

Such words reached my ear… Fuuu, it seemed that we haven’t reached the conclusion since the content was different.
Then, it didn’t matter.
Let’s just push through it since my personality has changed due to the poisoning.

“Yes, it did.
It must have been such a powerful poison.
It’s been a long time since… I’ve wandered between life and death.”

“That’s true.”

“Then… you will definitely protect me, and you will never betray me.”

With my eyes fixed on the book on my lap, I said this.
There was no guarantee that I wouldn’t be betrayed.
However, my mouth naturally spun it that way.
Perhaps Anastasia’s consciousness still existed in me.
No, that possibility must have been overwhelmingly high.

“Who can guarantee such a thing?”

“It’s obvious… It’s Lloyd, so I guarantee it.”

After lightly flipping through the book, I turned my gaze to Lloyd.
Lloyd, who was in front of me, was clearly confused.
Perhaps he didn’t think that he could be trusted that much.

“…Lloyd likes me, that’s why he’ll never betray me.”

“On what basis?”

“Your attitude and conduct up until now.”

Without any hesitation, I told him this.
I’ve never seen any hostility in Lloyd’s attitude or actions until now, and I realized that this was his way of expressing his love for me.

“Because you like me… You like me so much it’s pathetic.”

I knew that he’s been looking at Anastasia all this time.
Besides, these words right now surely meant that… Anastasia must have noticed a little.

“You know, Lloyd.
I’m going to be… separated from William-sama sooner or later.”

“What?”

“I realized that I didn’t need a good status.
I’m… not interested in the crown princess title nor am I interested in being called a saint.
This was also something I thought about while I was in bed from the poison.”

As I said these reasons, I saw Lloyd’s reaction… Lloyd’s eyes were clearly shaken.
I had no idea why Lloyd became the final boss, but now I knew why… Lloyd liked Anastasia.
He liked her so much that he wanted to steal her away from William-sama.

“…You’re an idiot.
You and I are both pathetic people who are madly in love.
Don’t you think we’d be a good match?”

Anastasia was harassing Candy-sama since she wanted to be by William-sama’s side… Anastasia wasn’t really interested in the title of saint or crown princess.
There was only one thing she wanted.
The only thing she needed was the love of that one person.

“If we were a perfect match, would you choose me?”

I shook my head as I stared into Lloyd’s eyes, which were filled with dark emotions.

“There is no choice.
I choose… my happiness.
That’s it.
I don’t need anyone else to be there… I don’t need anyone but me.

I was the only one who needed to be there.
Perhaps it was because of ‘that’ event in my previous life that I was the only one who I needed.
Even if I had to compromise, I only needed my family.
There were people like him who would leave me behind.

“I’ll decide my happiness.”

I wondered to whom the words I had muttered were directed.
Maybe it was me… in my previous life.
