What do you need to tell me, Laharl-san?
There you are. Good.
How to explain...
Look, this is about... Do you remember how weird Mid-Boss always used to act? I mean, not the normal weird stuff, the way he knew stuff and seemed so interested in us and me and... stuff.
Oh, yes. I thought he was stalking you at first!
...are you saying he really is a stalker?
I mean, he practically was, but that's not what I'm trying to explain here.
It turned out there was a reason for that.
Well, this all goes to back to that Seraph of yours. I don't know how he did it or how they even knew each other in the first place for that matter...
Mid-Boss is a reincarnation of someone.
Lamington-sama has a lot of knowledge and power, so I'm not surprised! Who is he the reincarnation of? Someone important from the Netherworld?
My old man, Flonne.
What? Vyers-san is King Krichevskoy!?
It's hard to believe, but also makes a lot of stuff make sense. How I found out is a long story, but... yeah.

But...why are you pretending he's not your father? Aren't you happy he's alive...?
That has nothing to do with it. It's because he doesn't want Etna to find out.
I've always considered my old man to be an idiot, but Etna didn't. Heck, Etna wishes he was still the Overlord instead of me. She probably won't like hearing he's been Mid-Boss all this time.

Oh...I think I understand. It would be a pretty big shock for her.
But don't you think she should know? I don't like lying to Etna-san...
Well, get used to it because we're not telling her.
It's his stupid secret, so...
If you say so, Laharl-san.
Ah! Wait! I'm not very good at lying! What do I say?
Nothing at all! You act like nothing has changed. Like you never even heard about all this.
He's just stupid old Mid-Boss.
But he's not just Mid-boss-san now! He's your father! And...I think he might be really hurt to see you say that about him. No wonder he was so upset in Halloween Town!
Love Freak, you aren't getting the point. That's how you act around Etna. Geez...
As for THAT whole thing, that had nothing to do with it. I have no idea what the hell he was trying to pull challenging me like that, but that's why I'm telling you all this. Something was wrong with him. Not at first, just when he left. Something was off about him, but when I asked him he said he was fine.
It's not acting, it's lying!
Should we go see him? He might be really hurt!
Dammit, Flonne! Don't make telling you a mistake. It's lying for her own damn good, you got that?
I'm going to go make sure he isn't croaking or something. I need you to keep Etna from finding out where I am.
Fine! But I don't like it!
What am I supposed to tell Etna-san when she finds out you've gone?
You don't have to like it. It's been a pain in the ass keeping it quiet as it is. It would be a hell of a lot easier if we could just tell her, but that's not how it is.
Tell her... uh...
I donno. What's wrong with you don't know because I didn't tell you?
I guess that will work...
It will have to for now. I'll think of an explanation later. When I'm gone just go find some desserts or something.
Oi, look... Who else could I trust to do this? No one. Just you.
So, I don't even have to think that you're going to let me down, right?
Oh, Laharl-san...I'll do my best!
*So Etna probably tried to hack this and could only see "I want to tell you something. It's kind of complicated" So guess what Etna's mind immediately went to*
Oh my, Prince is gonna have a serious discussion~ I really shouldn't butt in, but I can't help it! Even if I can't see it, I know Prince is finally revealing his true feelings to Flonne~! Good luck, Prince~!
W-WHAT THE HELL, ETNA!? What do you think you're--!? I wasn't--!
Don't worry, Prince. I can keep your precious secret. Just be sure to treat Flonne well ♥
Arrrgh! That's not what this is about!
Huh? Then, what IS this about?
N-none of your business! That's what it's about!
None of my business? What's so important that you can't tell me?
It's... It's just between me and Flonne!
Just between you two... You don't have to be so secretive with me about crap, you know.
No. You don't. It can't be that bad, telling me.
I didn't say it was bad, I just... I just can't.
Alright, fine. I can take a hint.
