Sighing a little in relief moments later as Alva retreated from the Earl’s personal space, being sure to not make it too obvious, Ciel carefully took in the boy’s words, nodding in understanding. ’So..he truly is not from anywhere near here now, is he..? I find that highly suspicious. I’ll have Sebastian check him thoroughly to see exactly what we may be up against,’ thought the Earl for a moment, his gaze still lingering upon Alva intently before a smirk finally reached his lips as he gave a little bow, placing a hand elegantly over his chest, the other motioning to follow. ”Well now, since you have stumbled across my manor on such short notice, I think it best that I welcome you..the Phantomhive way. Please, do follow me.” With that being said, Ciel nodded once towards Alva before turning casually on his heels, making his way towards the main entrance into his grandiose manor, stopping just moments later to look over his shoulder to make sure that the boy was indeed following him.
