“If we are surrounded by the soldiers over there, we will teleport and escape.

. . .Ruri cannot teleport.

Depending on the situation, it may not be possible to force Ruri to teleport with us.

In that case, we may have to leave Ruri behind and escape anyway.

“. . .Don’t make me let things happen that would leave Ruri to suffer, okay?”

“. . .Sofia-sama. . .no. . .”

I feel bad for Ruri, who has become quiet, but I can’t take her with me this time.

The more people there are, the harder it will be to escape.

I had no intention of taking anyone who can’t protect themselves.

“What about the preparation of the magic stones?

How many will we need?”

“I think we’ll need at least two wooden boxes. . .

David, can you load as many magic stones as you can onto the wagon?

The more magic stones, the longer we can maintain the barrier.”

“Understood. I’ll prepare the wagon and magic stones right away.”

Everyone starts working and leaves the audience chamber.

Among them, Douglas approaches with a serious face.

“Sofia-sama, is it really okay?

I can teleport and protect myself. Should I accompany you as a guard?

Well, I think Chris-sama and Kyle-sama will be enough, but

Isn’t the number of people too small?”

“Douglas. I appreciate the sentiment, but

There’s something I want you to do.”

“What do you want me to do?”

“Defend this palace as the acting king in my place.”

“Me?”

“Yes, because I won’t be here. Neither will the consort candidates, Chris and Kyle.

So I have no choice but to entrust it to Douglas.

I should leave it to Eddie based on rank, but. . .”

“No way. I can’t do it! I’ll leave it to Senior Douglas!”

The moment I spoke, Eddie, who was a little farther away, yelled.

Arno, next to him, is also desperately nodding.

. . .Well, yeah, I know Eddie can’t do it?

“See? It seems too difficult for Eddie.

He’s just getting used to the crown prince’s job, and he wouldn’t understand the king’s work.

I entrust everything to Douglas, so please take care of the acting king’s duties.

You just need to approve the urgent matters.

If my absence is discovered, this plan may be found out as well.

So will you become the acting king in my place?”

If the work of the acting king is delayed, not only my grandfather’s absence but also 

My absence might be revealed.

If we are searched for, there’s a higher chance of being interfered with.

That’s why I wanted Douglas to act in my place.

Well, for the sake of his newborn son Lucas, too, 

I also have the feeling that I don’t want to expose Douglas to danger.

“. . .If that’s the case, I understand. I’ll somehow manage the work.

Make sure you come back safely.”

“Of course. I’ll be back soon.

And. . . just in case, I want you to strengthen the palace’s security.

Someone may be targeting my grandfather.”

“Understood.”

“Eddie and Arno, too. Help Douglas with his work.

I’m leaving the palace to you while we’re away.”

“Yes, understood. Sister Sofia, take care.”

“Sofia-sama, I will take care of guarding Douglas-sama and Eddie-sama.

I’ll be waiting for your safe return.”

With this, the palace should be okay while we’re away.

Now all that’s left is for us to return safely.

. . .Nobody asked for specific plans.

I thought explaining would be difficult, but we’re moving forward without being asked.

The tower of the Barrier Maiden.

That place is not on the map.

I only have memories from that time, but I should recognize it when I get closer.

. . .Even after reincarnation, traces of the witch’s contract remain in this soul.

The place where my fellow witches met their end.

We set out in a carriage just before noon, aiming for that place.

Next to the prepared carriage stood Augen, and two young men I had never seen before.

“Please take these two with you.

They are among the best skilled royal guards, and are also good at handling horses.”

“My name is Wei.” “My name is Fel.”

Both had similar chestnut hair, with Wei having green eyes, and Fel having purple eyes.

Both were well-built, perhaps from training.

Their suntanned skin could mean they are working outside even in the royal palace.

Wei’s hair is long and tied back in one bunch.

Conversely, Fel has a short haircut, and while their facial features are similar, the two have different impressions.

“These two are the eldest and second sons of the former Viscount Hambel family.

After becoming royal guards, the Viscount family gave up their territory and title. . .

That’s why, despite being competent, they can’t be assigned to the palace.”

The sons of the Viscount family, who had given up their land and title due to consecutive cold damage.

Indeed, without any backing, they couldn’t be assigned to palace security.

On the other hand, it must have been impossible to let go of such competent subordinates.

“. . .If you complete this mission safely and return,

I intend to become your backing and officially change your assignment to the palace.

As the Commander of the Royal Guard, I can’t show personal favoritism.

But. . . if you accomplish the task of protecting Sofia-sama,

I can recommend you to the palace as a reward.”

“That’s right. If Augen recommends you that much, you must be competent.

Wei, Fel, if things get dangerous, we will teleport and escape.

So, think about protecting yourselves.”

“”Hah!””

They must have already been briefed by Augen.

I entrust the carriage to the two, who nod seriously.

To keep a low profile, I had only Augen see us off, and had the carriage set out.
