What's that... embarassing...
That's the first time I see a golden Rolls Royce!
That's Ray's mansion?
Hi Laila! Long time no see
What's the matter, Laila?
I don't know but Michel is out there - and he is carrying really flashy roses...
"Michel"? Who is Michel?
--Noir's cousin who works in shipping industry--
He looks like the blond version of Noir but inside he is an ordinary natural airhead.
How cruel! Shutting me out all of a sudden--
So you came all the way from Tunis.
Why did you come here? If it's because of Noir, he isn't here.
He went alone? That's rare. Where's he gone?
He's in Nice. A Duchess got a rare jewel from an auction and invited him to the presentation.
--For some reason he decided to go alone this time.
He has a reason to "leave you behind"?
--Actually... We wanted to go with him but--
Next time, I'll take you all to the mountains or somewhere else. But right now I need some distraction. I'll go alone this time.
Please stay at home.
--because he said this, we didn't go with him
I, too, got an invitation to that presentation. If Ray gets invitated, there is no reason why I shouldn't be as well, right?
Except for our eccentric Ray, it is common to be accompanied by a beautiful woman.
-- And because of that I'm here today as I have a favor to ask for.
Would you like to go with me, Laila?
Don't be shy. I prepared everything. I arranged a train which brings brings us directly to Nice.
The look is inspired by the Orient Express. -- Additionally it is completly coated with gold.
But... Michel --
--the way I look like
If we go together---
People will look weird at you-- surely...
I think I said this before: Even a white aristocrat is able to recognize the beauty of a woman. And I think you are very beautiful.
--I don't care what anyone else thinks about it. They don't know anything.
You're eccentric! Even for Noir's cousin--
--It's an entire stronghold-- How many persons are here to guard such a little island!?
--A boat trying to get here
That's strange. Noone informed me about this--
The boat's empty. Someone might be intruding.
Search the area!!
As they are having such strong security measures, there is surely something hidden here.
I am grateful for your cooperation, big sister.
If it's for you, it is no problem.
Maria, are you ready?
Yes, I'll be right there. Wait--
Isn't it odd?
You really seem to be Mariasama--
Stop it! Don't talk like this.
//[She's embaressed because Florian uses the very honorific "sama" to adress her, that's why I used the literal translation here]
--As expected... There are a lot of prominent personalities.
