Chapter 74: Count Allerid Family Secrets

(Uh…)

I am confused. Could it be that, in terms of power relations, Lars-sama is superior to Her Majesty the Queen or His Royal Highness Conrad?

If that’s not the case, there’s no reason for them to take the attitude of a student being scolded by the teacher.

I don’t know the reason, but if both of them respect Lars-sama, they should not treat me disrespectfully. So I feel a little relieved.

However, it’s terrifying to see Prince Conrad’s face right next to me.

After all, he is the person who might lock me up in a cell depending on the situation. And he always faced me with a scary face in my dreams.

That was a dream.

It’s not yet a reality, so I tell myself that it’s okay.

Next to me, Kvasir laughs quietly.

“Isn’t it strange for His Royal Highness Conrad to be scolded by someone younger? Count Elvasti isn’t that scary, is he? You are a prince, after all.”

“I don’t want to be lumped in with you, Kvasir. You are a human who deviates from the rules of human society, so you can be so carefree. Besides, you guys are even helping that Countess. How can you do such a thing?”

“That’s because it’s deviating from the common sense of the world. Before I am the offspring of a noble, I am a magician.”

I think to myself at Kvasir’s meaningful expression.

The position of the Lexander royal family is a necessary tool for a magician’s activities.

Even from this rude attitude, Kvasir probably thinks of himself as a magician first. His foster father probably thinks the same way.

And the Lexander royal family allows them to live as magicians. That’s why they allow this kind of attitude.

Sometimes it’s necessary to borrow the power of magicians, so they don’t want to ruin their mood. In order to be flexible when the time comes.

While thinking about such political things, I tilt my head at Kvasir’s actions.

Maybe he’s protecting me? He might be a little nice.

“Besides, even the royal family overlooks things that are convenient for them, like what Count Elvasti did… and the fall of Count Allerid.”

Allerid?

I blink at the familiar name. That should be the name of Michelia’s family.

Is it true that my real father was definitely involved in her family’s downfall, and that the royal family was silently acknowledging it? Why would they do such a thing?

I remain silent and watch the direction the conversation takes.

The queen made a disgusted face.

“That’s because the Count Allerid family caused problems because they kept demon beasts.”

Demon beasts?!

I managed to avoid shouting out loud. Holding my lips tightly, I was shocked by the truth.

Demon beasts are magical creatures that are twice or three times as tall as humans.

Their appearance can vary, from monkeys, to dogs, to horses, to lizards.

It is not known how demon beasts came into existence. It is said that they were created by magicians during the time when magicians were still involved in the world’s wars.

It is said that demon beasts recently appeared in the Kingdom of Folsian.

It is said that the reason for the annexation of that country by the neighboring kingdom of Leoguard was the outbreak of demon beasts, which caused the kingdom of Forsian to become chaotic and many knights and soldiers to die. It is also whispered that this was a conspiracy of the kingdom of Leoguard.

To think that the Count Allerid family was keeping such demon beasts.

“They said they were calm because they ate a sacred flower that happened to grow in their territory, but we don’t know when it will become a trigger to damage our country’s territory. The Count Allerid family didn’t even report that there were demon beasts.”

The queen sighs again.

“Even though the Count Allerid family has become unable to stand on their own due to debt, we cannot provide them with assistance. As a country, we wanted to hide the fact that there were demon beasts, so we had no choice but to crush them for other reasons.”

It is probably a made-up reason that the Count Allerid family offended the king by trading with other countries.

“Even so, once you’ve used the Count Elvasti family, you can’t just demonize them. At least in private situations like this, if not in public.”

“Yes,” said Her Majesty the Queen in response to Lars-sama’s words.

“But you are quieter than I thought from what I heard in the rumor. I thought you were a person with an arrogant attitude like your father. Count Radin also seems to value you very much.”

Here, Count Radin’s character comes into play. It seems that he is regarded as being greatly valued by those around him because he had elaborate dresses made for his new adoptive daughter, even though he seemed strict at first glance.

Although he’s very sensitive when it comes to children, but that tw*tty attitude has kept me doubly protected.

I have to write a letter of gratitude again tomorrow. I have been told to come and visit again and again, so I should also visit.

I think of these things gratefully and answer Her Highness.

“Even though I seem to be causing them trouble, Count Radin-sama and Countess are treating me very well.”

I said this in a low voice, almost in a whisper, to appear more obedient and harmless.
