I Become The Wife of The Male Lead - Chapter 94
Chapter 94: Boom and Bust (1)
If you read this on other websites, it means it was stolen. Read the translation only on itsladygrey.wordpress.com.
Soldiers and knights brought from Heilon were mainly located in the training area. Celine took care of the mansion, but she definitely could not do much to take care of the soldiers and knights. I did manage them. But I rarely go to the training ground because it was a bit awkward. Still, I went there once in a while. I couldn’t just turn a blind eye to my responsibilities. Especially, when that kind of threat would happen. I have to go to the training ground.
The training ground in the mansion was very large, and the soldiers and knights were sweating and training hard—
‘No, they’re all stretching out.’
It was not a strange sight. It was in fact normal.
I approached the knights and soldiers who were crawling like zombies.
Then Isaac, the knight who was responsible for mass-producing these zombies through vicious training, looked at me and then shouted.
“Everyone, get up! The young miss you all like is here!”
“Sir, Sir Isaac!”
Dude, why did he say it like that! It was so embarrassing.
Then a second after that, the zombies—no, the soldiers got up and cheered.
“Miss Fiona, we missed you…!”
They clapped and shouted. There was a lot of commotion. There were even tears flowing from some of them. Damn.
This was why I didn’t want to come to the training ground. It was exactly like this every time I came. I can’t feel comfortable visiting them when they act like this.
I waved my hand, calming them down and shouting.
“Sir Isaac, training is hard, so please don’t make them do this!”
Isaac grinned. “What do you mean ‘make them do this’, Miss? We all do it from the bottom of our hearts.”
It looked like a passionate social life to me.
The soldiers nodded their heads. “That’s right, Miss. This is from our hearts.”
“Everyone has a good social life…” I answered bluntly.
The soldiers laughed. The knights didn’t take part in the rowdiness but their mouths were stuck to their ears.
“Miss, it would be nice if you could come to the training ground often.” Isaac said.
“You guys do this every time you see my face. How can I come here often? Also, it would be a hindrance.”
Wasn’t it usually uncomfortable when your superiors came? They wanted me to come often, has everyone gone crazy from training too much?
“Not at all. Miss, it’s like a withdrawal symptom. Because they only see you once in a while, everyone is like this.”
I really couldn’t tell whether it was a joke or the truth.
“Anyway, what brings you here? Do you need an escort?”
“I’m here to see if there’s any problems. I felt like I have been neglecting everyone too much lately.”
“There’s nothing to worry about.”
Well, I guess I’ll just have to work with the knights to fix the mansion’s security issue. What if a real assassin sneaks in?
“Come to see me after the training is over.”
“That’s a really scary thing to say…”
“I have a matter to discuss with you regarding the security of the mansion. Please call the other knights.”
Isaac lowered his voice. “Is there something wrong?”
“No, not yet.”
To be honest, if I could, I also wanted to hire people in the same way. But in the long run, that would be a meaningless wasteful battle, especially if I were to be found guilty of commissioning the death of the Crown Prince. It would be a real death sentence for me.
‘I need a strong single blow.’
At the same time, that blow should not be illegal, and should be fine if discovered by the public.
“If you have any concerns, feel free to tell me. Well, of course, orders. All the people in this house are on your side, Miss.”
The soldiers perhaps heard Isaac, they shouted “WOOW!” at the same time.
It was nice to see them looking so energetic.
I laughed softly. “Thank you for saying that. See you later, then.”
As I was about to leave the training ground, the soldiers made a sound of disappointment. Then I heard Isaac say “what disrespect to Miss!”. I couldn’t help but grinned..
It was good to take care of the problem in advance. It was reported that there was an intruder last night. But they couldn’t even get into the mansion. Because I had prepared beforehand.
‘They did a good job tightening the security.’
“Who was injured?”
“There was none.”
That was fortunate.
“Well, did you catch him?”
“I apologize, we missed him.”
“That is rare.”
I didn’t blame them. But the soldier seemed to have heard it differently and misinterpreted what I had said, and somehow he seemed hesitant to say something.
“We went out of the mansion and chased after him… But something else happened.”
The soldier nodded his head. “A mid-level monster appeared on the street at dawn. The guards were fighting, and they seemed overwhelmed.”
“Did you help them?”
“Yes. People would be harmed if it stayed there.”
“Your choice was correct.”
The soldier had a happy look on his face.
An intermediate level monster in the middle of the Capital. It was definitely difficult for one or two capital guards to deal with. And when a guard died, the next victim would be a civilian.
‘It was fortunate that it was dawn.’
There were fewer people on the street.
“How can an intermediate monster appear in the middle of the Capital?”
“I’m sorry Miss, I also do not know….”
The Capital was surrounded by high walls, and all the gates that allowed people to enter and exit were guarded by capital soldiers in turn. During the day, they checked people’s ID to let people in, and at night, of course, they lowered the hard iron gates.
“Is the gate broken?”
If that was the case, there would be a lot more uproar.
“No, it isn’t.”
Well, that was as expected, because a single mid level monster was not that capable to break through iron gates. Still, it was a strange thing that happened. There should be no mid-level monsters’ habitats around here. The Capital was safe not without reason. Because there was a barrier created by the first saint protecting the Capital. It was also the reason why it was almost impossible for the Darkness or monsters to appear in the Capital. Moreover, even if the barrier was broken, there were imperial palace mages and the saint who appeared every generation that could maintain and repair the barrier. That was the setting.
There was definitely something wrong in the Capital. Because of the experience of long battles, I have learned many things, one of them was intuition was not something to be ignored.
“I want to see it. Who took the body of the monster?”
“The guards took it.”
“Okay. Call Sir Leander for me.”
“Yes, I understand.”
The soldier bowed his head and went out.
