After Arrendt promised to cooperate, we planned to raid the illegal gambling den as soon as possible. The recent frequency of in and out of the crown prince into the illegal gambling den contributed a lot to the rush. It was not a good idea to leave it longer. Especially when a monster escaped again. Fortunately, this time was a low-level monster and there was no major damage. So I must clear the arena quickly. In the end, this was my responsibility.
“Did you know that recently, the crown prince has been scattering gold coins in the entertainment district?” Livya, whom I met before the implementation of the plan, took a deep breath.
“Has he been having fun?”
“Yeah, I really dont want to know, but unfortunately this matter was caught by the Priscilla family’s intelligence network….”
I was dumbfounded.
“He is hiding his identity, isn’t he?”
“That’s what it looked like for now.”
Right, that was a relief. However, I was still at loss for what I heard. Because what he has done was similar to a person playing with women in a bar and sprinkling money in modern society. It was not good conduct, and for Livya, who received the marriage proposal letter from a guy like that, it was very disturbing.
Livya put her hand on my shoulder. “Lady Fiona, I’m cheering for you.”
That were the most sincere words I’ve ever heard from Livya. Somehow, after hearing those words, I could understand the feelings of the hero who rescued a princess kidnapped by the dragon in a fairy tale.
Ah, that was how it felt, so I also responded seriously, “Don’t worry. I’ll do my best.”
Then I went to see Sigren with a new spirit. However, for some reason, when I went to the palace, Sigren was nowhere to be seen. Instead, the knights in the imperial palace snooped around me. It was actually a quite familiar scene, several big men huddling together and looking at me. It was like in Heilon.
“Gentlemen, do you have anything to tell me?”
Perhaps because they didn’t know that I would speak first, these knights flinched together. But why the hell?
After looking at each other, eventually one of them came forward.
“Well, forgive me my lady. Did Lady Fiona come to look for His Highness the Prince?”
It was obvious this was the first time I had seen them, but for some reason, he knew my name.
“Yes, that’s right.”
“This way.” The knight quickly guided me.
Why were they in such a hurry? But I followed after him. Well, soon the reason immediately because clear.
“Your Highnes… this is clearly a social exclusion bullying.”
“What the hell.”
Kane Erez and Sigren were engaged in a war of words in the middle of practice ground.
The knights who followed me looked at me with anticipation. Their eyes looking at me were twinkling.
Don’t tell me, they want me to solve this?
“Just quit it.” Sigren’s muffled voice was heard.
Ah, Sigren. You’re harsh.
“Your Highness Prince Sigren.”
Sigren turned his head. Then he frowned. Not because of me, of course, but because of seeing his knights clinging to my back.
“Another useless thing to do…”
All the knights flinched altogether.
I really couldn’t tell if he was on bad terms or not with the knights in his palace. I guess this was good, right?
“I think there is one.”
Kane nodded enthusiastically as I answered back.
Sigren lightly clocked his tongue, then waved his hand.
“Not a big deal. Sir Kane, do not regret it later. And You’re welcomed to participate in this.”
“Uh.. but I still haven’t understood what’s on….”
“You will find out soon.”
I roughly grasped the situation from that conversation.
After that, Sigren escorted me to the drawing room.
“Did you not tell the knights in detailed about what we are going to do?” I opened my mouth after Sigren dismissed the people around us.
“Of course, it would be a trouble if our plan leaks.”
“Right. Did you try to get Sir Kane out of the operation?”
“Yeah, but as you can see, he insisted he liked to join. Ah, i don’t know…”
Well, I understand Kane’s position. It was like when your workplace has a big project and you’ve been left out, if I were in that position, I would definitely complain to my boss too.
“Are you suspicious of Sir Kane? Or are you being considerate of the Erez family that they might be in trouble if they got involved in the case of the crown prince?”
Whatever Sigren said, I was sure it was the latter. Hard to get, he was very obvious. He must be shy.
I glanced up at him. “Are you okay with Sir Kane? What do you think?”
“I don’t particularly like it, he’s Erez.”
“Don’t bother, Fiona. I don’t come here to play friendship.”
“Yeah, playing with love….”
“That’s not a game….” Sigren sat down on the chair after answering in a serious tone.
Ah, yes, you are.
I sat across from him while still grumbling inwardly.
“The crown prince has been throwing gold coins around the entertainment district.”
Sigren’s eyebrow flicked up. “Looks like he’s getting money from the arena.”
“Really? What an eyesore….”
“I agree.” Sigren replied sternly.
I took a deep breath. It was clear that stopping the crown prince as soon as possible would be a big contribution to society.
That day, Sigren and I checked all the plans and finished the preparations.
