I unconsciously held my breath when I heard Ria’s secret.
「The power to detect lies!?」
「Yes, that’s right. You can’t tell anyone else, okay?」she said, and smiled cutely.
(If she really has that kind of power, I need to reconsider a few things.)
The most pressing matter is April 1st, Ria’s birthday. Which is in about a month.
I am planning to give her a birthday present as a surprise.
(If Ria can really see through lies, I need to be very careful.)
If she suddenly asks “Are you hiding something?”, I won’t be able to deny it.
If she does find out that I’m hiding something, then she’s going to start asking more questions, and eventually find out about my surprise present for her birthday.
(I have to be very careful not to make any suspicious movements.)
As I was thinking about that,
「By the way… according to my father, this power is one of the “special powers” that belonged to the woman who sealed Fafnir, that is, my distant ancestor. All the women in the Vesteria lineage are born with some mysterious power, it seems.」
Ria explained more about it.
「I see, is that so…」
I once heard a story similar to that. I think it was in early January.
It was when we invaded the Belíos Castle in the Holy Ronelia Empire and encountered one of the Thirteen Knights of the Oracle, Fu Rudras.
Fu and I, unexpectedly, sat around at the same table and had a cup of tea together.
(But, having a cup of tea in the enemy headquarters with one of the top executives…)
Thinking back on it now, that was a very strange experience.
At that time, he talked about the history of the Vesteria Kingdom.
700 years ago, the primordial dragon king, Fafnir, suddenly appeared and burned the whole of Vesteria with its overwhelming power.
At that time, Ria’s ancestor, who was born in a distant foreign country, stood up against the dragon.
She used the special power of her blood to seal Fafnir into her own womb.
It has been handed down to the Vesteria royal family to this day, and is now the spirit core of Ria Vesteria.
Comparing Ria and Fu’s stories, it seems that there is no doubt that “Vesteria family’s female line” has a mysterious power.
In other words, it must be true that Ria can “see through lies”.
