Chapter 38: The Lette temple knights group

I sat on a chair in the living room of the mansion and listened to the explanation from the Knight Commander without interrupting.

“As a matter of fact, all the knights of the Uranos Principality are here.”

——All of them? What?

“Although we have already lost our status as knights of the Uranos Principality, we have decided to abandon our country because we have become tired of serving the Duke and Princess Paulina. We are knights, and we want to pledge our loyalty to those we should serve. Of course, this decision was not made overnight, but after carefully considering all of the Duke’s actions up until now. Therefore, we came here, thinking that if we listened to Korya’s story, Eleni-sama would allow us to work as knights.”

Were things so bad that knights would abandon their country?

“The Uranos Principality we fled from was in a hurry to send Princess Paulina to the Kailus castle ball, so they didn’t even bother to send pursuers. Of course, since all the knights are here, it wouldn’t have been a problem even if they did.”

I don’t understand why the ball was given priority over the knights.

“After that, I don’t know what happened to the Uranos Principality. We were wandering and struggling to survive day by day.”

That means something really difficult must have happened.

I had many thoughts and opinions, but I realized it was pointless to point them out one by one. There were many things they didn’t understand, and it wouldn’t help to know the current situation of the Uranos Principality. Right now, the priority was to convince them to switch their allegiance to me, who they desired to serve.

“It must have been tough. I know it’s not enough to just say ‘thank you for your hard work,’ but that’s all I can say for now.”

“You’re too kind.”

“Speaking of serving, you will become the temple knights of the newly built Temple of Lethe.”

The knights were restless at the unfamiliar term “temple knights.”

The temple is the center of faith, where each god is enshrined, and the temple knights are responsible for its protection and assisting the activities of the priests and priestesses in the outside world. Since the Uranos Principality did not have a large temple, they were probably not familiar with the term “temple knights.” They had an honest question on their faces about what to do in such a situation.

The Knight Commander opened his mouth anxiously. I was tense, thinking that I had to somehow convince them.

“Excuse me, isn’t that to serve Eleni-sama?”

“Well, I am the chief priestess of the Temple of Lethe. So, with you guys…”

Once again, the knights were in a commotion. I didn’t understand why they were making a fuss and panicked. What should I do?

However, the Knight Commander opened his eyes wide and looked straight at me.

“Eleni-sama, what’s going on?”

“Huh?”

“The chief priestess… Eleni-sama entrusted with such a great role?”

Oh, I see.

To change the subject, I cleared my throat with a cough.

“As a princess, I am allowed to hold a certain position as a clergy member. Therefore, would you be satisfied with me becoming a temple knight?”

Let’s keep it quiet about the fact that no one knows about the Goddess of Forgetfulness, Lethe, and that I was given the responsibility of the temple because I know the most about it. Some things are better left unknown.

The commotion settled down, and the Knight Commander looked around before nodding in agreement to me.

“Well then, we will… Excuse me, but what kind of goddess is Lethe?”

“Oh, she is the goddess who governs forgetfulness. I have been serving her since my days as a nun.”

“Understood. We will serve the Goddess of Forgetfulness, Lethe, and you.”

And so, the more than two hundred knights of the former Uranos Principality were able to continue their activities under the new name of the Lethe temple knights of the Styx Kingdom.

However, the Uranos Principality seems to be in a state of devastation. I have no attachment to it, but it’s a little concerning.

But there’s nothing to do but wait. The day Thanasios tells me will come soon enough.

For the next few days, I was busy with the maintenance of the Temple of Lethe.
