I tried to enjoy Richard’s story but I can’t. It is mainly because I dislike Richard.

I just don’t know what are in his mind. And finally Lucas’s secret is revealed here. Somehow I want Lucas to be capturable rather than Richard (●♡∀♡))ヾ☆*。 Btw I have no word for the 3P ending, I was shocked seeing that scene ( つﾟДﾟ)つ .
