Chapter 126. Find (10)
Callian noticed the tension in Viscount Tessid’s hands.
“It is likely that repairs to the carriage axle will soon be complete.”
“I find it timely. I’m glad to hear that.”
He believed he had found valuable assistance for Baron Polune.
He had complied with Allen’s request.
Callian was trying to discover talent. There was one person who supported the discovered talent, Yan.
Twenty-four hours a day was not enough for Yan, because he had to help Callian, who was involved in many incidents. After Gray left, Yan estimated the price of the carriage to tell Callian.
He then visited Arsene to tell him that Callian would pay for the carriage. He also told him that he could rest today. He did not tell him that he had worked too hard because of him.
Finally, he visited Hina’s room with the ice cream he had ordered from the chef. He tried to explain to her why Kirie had to run around the training camp with his wounds. Hina’s reaction was unexpected.
She understood. Although her eyes were puffy, she looked like she had never cried. Hina responded after she heard Yan’s explanation.
—Yes, he deserves the punishment.
Hina ate the ice cream with satisfaction. Yan opened his mouth,
“Don’t think too much about what happened today.”
—Alright. The Prince did the right thing.
Hina understood why the Prince had punished him.
But the real reason Callian had been upset was because they mocked her inability to speak.
—I don’t have to be sorry anymore.
Yan was relieved that Hina was reassured.
“His Majesty’s son this time destroyed someone else’s carriage.”
Actually, it was Arsene. But Allen didn’t explain any further.
The news surprised Le Rune, it seemed that his son had caused another accident. He asked,
“Did Callian do that?”
“I don’t think Prince Randell or Prince Planche would do such a stupid thing.”
Although Randell could do it, Planche had never harmed anyone. He had once thrown a dining room knife at Yan, but he wasn’t hurt anyway.
“There must be a reason Callian would have acted like that.”
He responded with so much faith that he pulled a check out of the drawer. Then he wrote down an amount of money with the pen. This meant that he would pay for the carriage.
“Do you intend to risk yourself for your son’s actions?”
He scolded him.
“If His Highness pays for the carriage, don’t you think the owner will assume he approves of the Prince’s behavior? His Highness doesn’t even know who the carriage belongs to.”
Normally, Le Rune would have asked who Callian had confronted, rather than offer his assistance. That’s why Allen warned him.
“Whose carriage is it?”
“Gray, the carriage belongs to Count Gray.”
Then it seemed that Le Rune had aged ten years. He had heard that Gray had stripped 4 knights of their titles, and had had their tongues cut out.
“They have applied the strongest punishment that can be imposed based on the Kairis Law. I guess he’s become quite a fierce boy.”
“That shows he cares quite a bit about his people.”
Le Rune weighed the repercussions.
“Is there a list of mages who belong to Valkan?”
“Yes. They are fewer than I thought, but enough so that the knights of the royal family do not intimidate the Prince.”
Allen recalled the 30 knights who were carefully selected.
“In fact, we have planned to start setting up Valkan in about two to three months. They still don’t have any headquarters. But now that the situation has changed, it looks like we’ll have to hurry.”
Now they needed a force that Brissen could not oppress.
Le Rune took a deep breath.
“Allow Valkan to use the facilities that Knight Commander Pavel used.”
Valkan’s magician corps served as Silica’s weapon.
“Have you planned to declare war on Brissen?”
“It wouldn’t be bad.”
Allen laughed. Then he replied,
“Congratulations. Sounds like a good decision to me.”
Le Rune laughed.
