I Was Forced To Quit Being a Nun and Get Married Because of a Divine Prophecy ~the Wise Prince Who I Am Actually Marrying Is Someone Who Dotes on Me Excessively~ – Chapter 23
Chapter 23: This Incomprehensible Story
When the group of former Uranos Principality knights, including Korya, had progressed about a third of the way to the Styx Kingdom, discussions began in the Styx Kingdom royal palace on how to handle the arrival of over two hundred knights from Uranos Principality.
The knights had already sent messengers ahead, and the Styx Kingdom was aware of their situation, but they needed to confirm the truth of their claims and whether the knights were in their right minds. The situation of the knights fleeing Uranos Principality seemed foolish and unbelievable, and the Styx Kingdom needed to ensure the safety of its citizens. For now, the former Uranos Principality knights were allowed to stay in the Styx Kingdom, but they were advised to come to the capital slowly to avoid causing any unrest.
Thanasios heard about this in the evening, less than a week after Eleni arrived in the Styx Kingdom.
“…It might be better not to burden Eleni with such confusing news while she’s still adjusting to her new environment.”
“Yes, perhaps we should wait until we have more details before deciding whether to consult with Eleni-sama.”
With Ioel’s agreement, Eleni still didn’t know anything about the knights who had fled from the Uranos Principality. She wasn’t even involved.
However, that turned out to be a good thing.
The ball at the Kailus Palace is tomorrow. Princess Paulina has already left the Uranos Principality and has finally arrived at the Kailus Palace. The Uranos Prince hastily gathered soldiers from all over the country to serve as escorts for Princess Paulina after his knights suddenly fled, managing to maintain appearances.
Eleni knew nothing about the events in the Uranos Principality or the ball at the Kailus Palace. She wasn’t close enough to Thanasios to ask for favors, nor did she have a position established in the Styx Kingdom.
Only those around Eleni knew about her, as she was only known as the maiden who became the prince’s wife through a divine oracle, without anyone directly knowing her. However, the quick-eared ruling nobles didn’t see it that way.
They would say something like this.
“Why doesn’t Princess Eleni reach out to her homeland, the Uranos Principality? Even Prince Athanasios hasn’t done anything. Does this mean something? Shouldn’t we avoid getting involved with the Uranos Principality?”
In other words, the current situation would have a negative impact on Paulina at the ball held at the Kailus Palace.
If Paulina had been smart, she would have guessed these things and resented Eleni, but unfortunately, she is not that smart and has no connections or information. The Duke of Uranos is also similar. He is only focused on the ball at the Kailus Palace and has completely forgotten about Eleni.
And so, the ball at the Kailus Palace begins. At that very moment, Eleni, who is in the Styx Kingdom’s royal castle, is once again stunned.
