“Hey, hey! You there, where do you think you’re going?

The carriage to Rujail isn’t that way?!”

“Shut up! Leave me alone!”

Watching a plump woman with chestnut-colored hair tied in a bundle staggering away,

The knight, who was in charge of security on the outskirts of the royal capital, had kindly called out to her,

But she had dismissively told him off and continued in the opposite direction.

That direction was towards the border of Eugenis.

The border had been closed for more than two years now, and it was not possible to enter Eugenis.

So when the knight saw the woman walking down the road towards the border,

He had stopped her out of concern.

“. . .Hey, is she alright?”

“It’s fine, leave her alone.”

“Captain!”

Even after being told to leave her alone, he was still worried and watching her when a voice called out from behind.

It was his superior’s superior in the knight’s order he belonged to.

He was approached by the captain of the Cloud Division, someone he had never spoken to before,

He immediately saluted and waited for instructions.

“Ah, it’s fine. At ease.”

“Yes, sir.”

“I told you to leave her alone because I saw you were concerned about that woman.”

“But, sir. . .She can’t enter Eugenis, and 

That area is now dangerous with ruffians starting to build a village. . .

It’s a dangerous place for a woman to go alone.”

“I’ve explained all of that to her.”

“What?”

“I’ve just explained to her that it’s dangerous to go that way.

So I released her near the carriage stop for Rujail, but. . .

This happened anyway.”

The knight’s face showed his surprise as he involuntarily asked why.

That woman definitely appeared to be in her twenties and didn’t look like she was dressed for a solo journey.

Since cutting diplomatic ties with Eugenis, Kokodia’s public order had only worsened. . .

If a woman traveled alone, she could be kidnapped and sold off in no time.

He had warned her thinking she was unaware, 

So why, if the captain had already explained?

“Well, she seems to be a former Eugenis noble’s daughter.”

“Really?. . .I couldn’t tell.”

“I know, neither could I.

Even though she’s a noble, she wears a magic-sealing collar for the crime of exile.”

“What?”

“So I explained that she can’t enter Eugenis even without the barrier wall.

But she won’t listen at all.

If she had remained confined to the mansion. . .She could have been taken care of until her death.

Leaving her child behind. . .I wonder where she’s going.”

“Sigh. . .”

The knight stopped thinking about the matter.

It seemed not a suitable case for a commoner like him to get involved in.

There was nothing good about dealing with a noble daughter who committed the crime of exile.

He saluted the captain once more and returned to his post.

“. . .She must not have been able to accept her current situation at all.”

The captain was here to see off the former noble’s daughter, Eliza.

He had thought to accompany her until the end when he heard that she was being released.

He had heard that she was the Duke’s daughter who bore the third prince’s child,

But when she came to Kokodia, she was put to sleep with magic because she was violent.

She was restrained until childbirth because she continued to be unruly.

She gave birth to a boy, but Eliza never held him in her arms.

She didn’t even ask his name, didn’t breastfeed him, and the child was raised by wet nurses.

She spent her days in a daze, occasionally raging and screaming.

As the Duke’s daughter who bore the third prince’s child, she was used and exploited,

And it was thought that she would remain confined until the end. . .

With the change of the Kokodia’s king, the third prince and Eliza, and their child,

It was decided that they would be imprisoned in a different mansion once again.

The former queen and the former Duke, along with Idia, the daughter of the former Duke who had been captured, were all together.

Eliza, disliking that, insisted on leaving, and as a result, she was allowed to leave.

As a citizen of Kokodia without any official records, it was deemed inappropriate to continue confining Eliza, and,

This decision was made by the new king.

Because the former queen had not recognized it, the marriage between Eliza and the third prince was not consummated.

Therefore, Eliza had to be treated as a stateless commoner.

Eliza was given enough money to live on and was released from the mansion.

She was explained the situation of the country, and even though she was advised to go to Rujail,

She was walking the road to Eugenis, not listening to any dissuasion.

A road that had not seen carriages for two years, overgrown with grass.

It would soon be night, and nothing would be visible.

Eliza’s figure was also soon lost to view.
