"This road is horrible," Mary complained for the third time.
"Rain had caused its road become muddy like this," Cain simply explained.
They were on trip to Lord Searle's villa, to attend the hunt party. To be honest Cain was not that fond to join such a thing but since Lord Searle was Uncle Neil's best friend, it was a rather difficult to reject the invitation. Though he suspected the invitation somehow had connection with Lord Searle's daughter, Lady Nausicaa Searle.
After spent many years in France, Nausicaa finally went back to England and Lord Searle held a party to celebrate his daughter homecoming, which was where he met with her.
Cain had to admit that Nausicaa was beautiful, stunning enough to make heads turned whenever she walked in. And she obviously interested in him while Cain did not feel the same. It would be easy if Nausicaa were one of those girls who clamored for his attention. But she wasn't. Nausicaa was the type of a nice and kind girl who nicely and politely asked him would he go to the hunt if he had nothing else to do.
And here he was.
"It's gonna rain," Mary's voice brought him out from his reverie.
Cain glanced out the window and could see the steely gray clouds heavy with the threat of rain. But before he could reply there was a loud crash and Mary fell into his lap due the impact.
"What is going on nii-sama?" Mary sounded afraid.
"Don't worry," he assured her then he popped out his head. "What is happening?"
James, his coachman answered. "A wagon crashed into us, Cain-sama. I will check the damage first."
"You wait here." Cain told here then climbed out the carriage. "So, how is it?" he asked.
"One of the carriage wheels is broken," James reported, with a shake of his head. "We can't continue the trip."
"It's-it's not my fault!"
Cain turned his attention to the third person there and saw a terrified country man. It was obvious he was the one who responsible for the damage.
Cain stood there for a moment and thought about their situation now. They couldn't continue the trip and it was going to rain in anytime.
"Hey you!" He addressed the country man. "Do you know any house nearby?"
"Uhm...Over there," he pointed.
Cain followed the direction and could see a red brick building among the trees. "That is Pine Inn," the man explained. "You can find a person to repair the wheel too, but-..." he stuttered. "...but I don't ha-"
"That is no need." Cain cut his words. "As long as you take us there I will forget this."
"Thank you! Thank you!" The man seemed couldn't believe his luck.
Cain walked to the carriage. "Mary!" he called her. "Get down here. And James put the suitcases into the wagon."
"Onii-sama, aren't we going to Lord Searle's villa?" Mary asked, a frown marred her face.
"We must delay our trip Mary."
"Huh?" She looked confused but a quick glance at the carriage made her understood.
"And since it's going to rain, we must find a shelter first."
"It's done Cain-sama," James interrupted. He already moved their suitcases to the wagon.
Cain nodded. "We are heading to Pine Inn now."
My beta reader is working on my other fic so pardon me for the grammar mistakes here. Or anyone can help me here?
I have read Cain till the end but I skip some of it coz I can't find the translations/scanlations. So...what I haven't read is 'The Little Crooked House', 'Butterfly's Bone', 'Bloodberry Jam', and 'Mortician's Daughter'. So if anyone knows where to find the translations please tell me in your reviews.
And the last what is Cassian position in Delilah? I know he is a trump, refers to the minor trumps or minor Arcana so my question is which one Cassian is?
