well, but showing the old man's temper at this moment would be useless, so I remained silent.

Isaac looked at me.

"What does Viscountess Lucibiu think?"

"...I believe people can change."

I answered the question slowly, looking at the sleet falling outside the window.

"But not everyone changes easily."

Perhaps the last chance given to Liena was when Duke Cassius approached her to seek treatment.

After erasing the divine power from Liena that had accumulated in Isaac's body, I separated from them.

The person herself distrusted Liena a lot and harbored antipathy towards her, so the possibility of her being possessed again was minimal.

"Oh, are you here?"

Lucy, who had been rolling a black bead on my desk with her paws, pretended to greet me when she saw me return to the annex.

"Still, it's someone else's relic, so aren't you treating it too negligently?"

Lucy snorted happily at my words.

"Did you think I would be careful with something that emits an unpleasant demonic smell?"

"Yes, I suppose you're right."

Yesterday, I borrowed that black bead from the Cassius family.

"Master, a power is currently blocking that person's divine power."

This was because Lucy, who was in my bag, told me while Duke Cassius and Liena were discussing whether to go to the hospital or not.

With Duke Cassius in chaos after Isaac escaped with Liena, I explored with Lucy what kind of power that was.

At that moment, Liena was struggling to change the minds of the Cassius family.

According to the divine beast, a large amount of divine power flowed from Liena's body at that moment and headed towards the three of them, father and sons, but was blocked by some force.

Finally, I found the source of that power inside the duke's office.

The divine beast whispered as it looked at the palm-sized black orb.

"It smells like a demon."

"If it's a demon, do you mean the legend?"

"Do you know about that?"

"I don't know the details."

"These are people who followed evil spirits a long time ago. After Miella defeated and sealed the evil spirits, they gradually disappeared from this continent."

"Now that I think about it, you seem to know many strange things even though you've only been around for a few months."

"As a divine beast, that level of knowledge enters your head from the moment you're born."

While they were having this conversation, the door opened, and Duke Cassius walked in.

"Ethel, you were here. Why...?"

The duke's face lit up with a look of puzzlement when he saw the black bead in my hand.

I asked the duke what this was, and he briefly explained the hidden story of the Cassius family and the identity of the bead.

The first head of the Cassius family, who left a will saying that this bead would protect the family.

Indeed, Liena's blessing was interrupted by the power of the bead, so it was as if its will had come true.

If demons were people who served evil gods, could it be that the power of the beads also came from evil gods?

It's unpleasant to think of it that way, but maybe it will help suppress Liena's blessing...

"If you're interested, I can lend it to you," the Duke suggested as I examined the beads closely for a short period.

"Yes? Would that be okay? It definitely looks like a family relic."

"Well. It's something I didn't even know existed until recently. Besides..."

The Duke Cassius's face darkened.

"Ethel, no matter how much I do for you, it's not enough. I truly apologize for all this time. There are no words that can justify what we did to you for Liena."

He apologized solemnly.

"I'm sorry.".
