Chapter 65. Secret Conversation (1)
Weekly Chapter (6/6)
A carriage bearing the seal of Eternia crossed the border of the Empire.
An old man was looking out of the window.
The young masked attendant, who was sitting in front of him, said,
“Monk Kallios, you must hide your identity until you die.”
“The stupid rules again. We are in an open area.”
“This is Imperial territory. We must keep the Empire from finding out.”
“I know, but why are you so rigid?”
The old man put on the mask beside him.
Soon, his wrinkles smoothed out and his hair was dyed black.
“No matter what you do, the Empire will eventually discover it.”
Asked the attendant,
“You mean there are spies on Eternia?”
“Absolutely not. Eternia does not distrust the Empire in the first place. The Empire has never done it any harm.”
“Then the reason Monk Kallios goes to Eternia is…”
“To upset the balance.”
Soon, the agreement that held Kallios and the Empire together would expire.
He now planned to separate from the Empire to commit himself to Eternia.
The news that he would be leaving the Empire, one of the three Sword Masters, would cause quite a commotion.
“I support Monk Kallios’ choice, but I wonder if it is not excessive.”
Kallios would not hesitate to turn hostile if necessary.
“You’ve noticed it too, can you imagine what would happen if that boy came into contact with the Empire?”
Eternia would be under the control of the Empire.
“…Eventually, he will become a Royal Guard.”
Royal Guard. The imperial family guards were the pinnacle of the Empire’s forces.
“I don’t want that to happen. It would be unfortunate if a talent rotted there.”
The Royal Guard, the highest honor for an imperial knight, was a tomb of talents.
Many talents who became Royal Guards died in the power struggles of the imperial family.
He knew this because he had commanded the royal family.
“His teacher is with him, if you do something rash, the Empire could be set on fire.”
“That woman can’t stand next to that boy all day long.”
The attendant thought about the meaning behind his words.
“I’ll take advantage when that woman goes north.”
“You plan to take the boy hostage?”
“The royal family is despicable. Isn’t there enough evidence?”
The attendant thought with his mouth shut.
“I worry that all the hard work will be lost.” Posted only on NovelUtopia.com
“Zelda will blame me if I don’t do anything now.”
Sylverine stretched her arms skyward.
It was still a two-hour carriage ride to the mansion.
The carriage stopped in the forest to rest for a while.
The two doors of the carriage were open to let the wind blow inside.
She lay on the carriage seat while the birds sang.
Her long hair cascaded to the floor. She draped her hair over her back.
She said with half-open eyes.
The carriage wasn’t that wide, so her feet were sticking out the door.
She squirmed until she got a comfortable position. But she bent her legs, so her knees pointed skyward. Her skirt slid down to her thighs. She lightly placed her skirt between her thighs to hold it up.
She also released a strap from her blouse, which exposed her collarbone.
She didn’t care that she was in front of his student.
She appeared to regard him as a kid or an invisible man.
When he stared at her, she stared at him too.
“What are you looking at?”
She was still not wearing any accessories.
He didn’t know much about women, but he did know that women dressed their best for important occasions, such as gatherings.
But that she had gone out like that meant she had made a decision.
It was like a silent protest.
He had to go back to the mansion soon to complete it.
Sylverine, who was perhaps bored, reached out her hand to the letters beside him.
“These letters are for me…”
“I’ll read it.”
She removed the seal from the letter to look at the contents.
“The youngest of Marquis Dalton’s three sons…too long.”
She pulled out another letter.
“Hahaha, this girl is too young, she still believes in fate.”
Then she opened four letters without even reading them.
“This one is a little different. To attract attention, you should write a letter in this manner.”
She waved the ink-black letter.
“Amarilis Rae lives in a misty city near Mayhen. She wants you to visit her? Where is this city? You’ve become quite famous, right?”
She briefly explained the contents of the letter to him.
He half-listened to what she said.
“I think we should get going. We’re going to be late if we rest any longer.”
That way, he could deliver the gift faster.
“I don’t know, I’m sleepy.”
She closed her eyes.
He then accommodated Sylverine’s limbs, and closed the carriage doors for it to depart.
They finally arrived at the mansion at dusk.
She had slept soundly.
Several large boxes were stacked in front of the entrance to the mansion.
The employees carried them toward the carriage.
Everyone was working on preparations for the trip to Eternia.
Sylverine got out of the carriage rubbing her eyes.
“Teacher, is it necessary to carry so much luggage for Eternia?”
It seemed that she had not yet woken up.
