412-Episode 412: I Want to Persuade But My Mother Is Scared
After some time of walking, he was brought to the room of the chief, Mr. Elfin.
When Mr. Elfin saw Finia, he broke into a smile and ran out.
He held his daughter to his chest with the same vigor.
Thank God I was worried about you.
Are you hurt? Did the humans do anything terrible to you?
‘Well … well, yeah. It’s okay.
Well that’s good.
Elfin-san gave me a gentle look for the first time.
I had the impression that he was a strict person…
I guess she’s a mother for what it’s worth.
She was very worried about her daughter……..Finia, apparently.
‘I thought my heart would be out of control when you disappeared…’
And I’m sorry I was worried about you but I’m fine!
‘Yes, it would seem so. That’s my daughter my daughter you’ve come back to catch a foolish person.
Guillory stares at me.
It’s like a needle sticking in me, and my gaze hurts.
It’s quite powerful.
‘Well Finia, you’ve done well. But you must be very tired. Leave the rest to me and get some rest.
It’s okay. These humans are going to make you sorry that they took you and that you were ever born. We won’t let them get to you again.
No, it’s not that, it’s just…
Finia seems to be unable to spin words well and is fumbling and panicking.
In the preliminary meeting, it was decided that Finia would try to persuade Elfin-san first, but…….
How hard can it be?
I’m planning to be quiet at first, as it might make things even more confusing.
However, I can’t just let Elfin-san punish me like this…
When the time comes, I may have to change my plans and come forward.
Suddenly, I meet eyes with Finia.
Somewhere in her eyes, she looks at me like she’s asking for help.
I’ll be fine.
He murmured in a voice that only Finia could hear.
At first glance, it was frightening…
But she’s a strong girl to the core.
A little bit, but spending time with her has helped me understand that.
So we should be able to manage this situation.
Believing that, I looked straight at Finia as if to deliver this thought.
Did the thought reach you?
Finia nodded with a cocoon and then faced Elfin-san again.
”Oh, um … well … mother …”
What is it? You can’t wait to get to your room….
Oh, I need to talk to you!
It’s not… not Ray… It’s about the person…
Hmm…….what is it? Talk to me.
For now, Mr. Elfin has taken up a position to listen to me.
Would I be able to convince him successfully?
I’m on edge, but I watch the development quietly.
‘Oh, um … that person … well … he didn’t kidnap me …’
What’s going on, Finia? I can’t believe you’re suddenly saying that. The guilt of this person is obvious. The only thing left to do is to condemn him, right?
No, it’s not… well… Mr. Lane a man’s person didn’t do anything!
It’s the female human beings that Sakura-chan has in her custody that are to blame!
Somewhat at a loss for words, Finia ended up saying it emphatically.
Elfin-san was surprised by her daughter’s reaction, rolling her eyes.
Perhaps she had never expressed her intentions in such a strong tone before.
Finia is such a meek child that it makes me feel that way.
Lean is making some kind of noise, but she can’t speak because her mouth is covered.
I didn’t want her to say anything unnecessary, so I did this, but…..
He was right, apparently.
If I’d kept my mouth free, I’d have said I was one of you.
“All those girls it’s all my fault and Miss Lane, you know, she didn’t do anything wrong, okay? It’s true.
…Do you have any reason to believe that?
‘Nah, I don’t… but it’s true! Shh, trust me, Mom!
There are pauses that make you think.
What answers will be given?
What I do next will determine my fate.
‘We’ll take your word for it, Finia. The human man there had nothing to do with it, did he? Then let him go.
Instantly, Elfin-san’s disposition changes.
It goes from a calm mother’s face to the face of a shura who will do anything to protect her child.
”Did you expect me to say that? Did you ever think you’d believe in humans and such?
‘Finia, poor little thing you are still so young. Hence, you have been tricked by a human. No, or have you been brainwashed? Either way, it’s inexcusable.
Mom, no, no, no. I don’t think so…
Stay back, Finia.
The words are quiet, and yet the pressure is phenomenal.
A jolt makes Finia shudder, and she closes her mouth, seemingly unable to defy him.
So far, I guess.
Finia has done well, or rather, she has worked harder than I expected.
But I guess this is the end of the line.
The only thing left to do is to do something on your own.
I untied the rope I had left ready to be untied at any time by myself and confronted Elfin-san.
”After all, it seems you were planning something foolish. Embracing Finia, what are you planning to do?”
‘I’m not planning anything in particular… but still, if I had to say it, I’d have to talk to Elfin-san and clear up any misunderstandings.
”I have nothing to do with this matter. I have no desire to harm the phoenix tribe. This is all a misunderstanding.
Mr. Elfin gave a small laugh…
And gosh! The negative aura is so strong that it makes a sound, “I’m not going to repeat that nonsense again, human!
”You will repeat that kind of nonsense again, human!
