Limited Time, Kitchen Maid of the Fourth Knight Order ~I Got a Job Because I Don’t Want to Get Married~ – Chapter 134

After that, I became the king and was the second busiest!

While hurriedly forming the Fourth Knight Order, I thoroughly scoured around Dyson and its vicinity. Upon realizing that Dyson was creating a collar of submission, I further increased manpower to search for the locations and people involved in its making.

As a result, reports came in suggesting that Dyson was likely crafting it within his own residence.

Seriously. . . Without evidence, one cannot simply do as they please inside a noble’s house. . .

It’s not just that the king cannot do it, but rather, it’s precisely because he is the king that he must not.

If I flaunt my power and search Dyson’s house now, other nobles will become anxious, thinking “the same could happen to me someday,” leading to dissatisfaction and rebellion against the royal family.

Besides, it’s unlikely that Dyson has been negligent in preparing for such a situation. It’s safe to assume that all evidence and the collars of submission could either be completely undiscoverable or he has prepared a way to eliminate them.

Then, one should sneak in secretly and find the evidence.

To create an opportunity to infiltrate Dyson’s house and to flush out the person connected with Dyson, proceed with preparing a large-scale personnel reshuffle.

In the midst of that, Linus was discovered by Dyson.

When I heard that Linus managed to escape to the noble school, I was relieved to the point of tears.

“. . .I can’t forgive Dyson for putting Linus through this. I will announce the personnel changes immediately!”

I brought forward the personnel changes. Even the usually unflappable Dyson was quite flustered. Serves him right!

Afterwards, sacrificing our sleep, we all watched to see who would make a move.

Thanks to everyone’s efforts and the fact that Shiro brought back the collar of submission, we were able to gradually corner Dyson.

It was unfortunate that we couldn’t find the body of the nobleman who had the collar of submission put on to Shiro, but there’s no use crying over spilt milk.

While handling our regular duties, I’ll stay in touch with Linus and continue to do what I can without rushing.

As we proceeded, a question arose between me and my close aides.

Who in the world is Alice Norchev??

She was a lady who had been carefully vetted and hired as a kitchen maid for the Fourth Knight Order.

Yet somehow, she had become close enough to Linus to be targeted by Dyson!! And she was adored by the four aides who went to school with her! Linus was quite taken with her too!

What’s going on! I never imagined Linus would fall for a girl from a lower nobility, did you, brother?!

Anyway, that’s a matter to be set aside for now.

The one who realized something significant about Dyson at school was all because of Alice Norchev and the people around her.

It was a coincidence that the merchant was connected to Dyson, but it was Alice Norchev and her brother who pulled at that thread of chance.

The poison presented as a gift by the merchant was discovered by a female student close to Alice Norchev and Thor Norchev.

Finally, it was a female student who had become friends with Alice Norchev who informed us that Dyson’s aide was in the Valka domain.

Is it sheer luck?

Or, has she been so unfortunate until now that fortune has finally turned her way?

Even after investigating Miss Norchev and the Norchev family once more, nothing comes up.

The possibility of her being in league with the merchants was considered, but if that were the case, they would have hidden any past connections.

When I pressed the merchants about Miss Norchev later, they repeated the same story. They attempted to cheat and rob her, only to be beaten at their own game.

Alice Norchev is formidable. . .

Still unable to fully trust a person I have never met, I asked Chris to secretly take photographs of Miss Norchev.

Since everyone else holds Miss Norchev in high regard, I couldn’t be certain if they could make an impartial judgment even with the footage.

When I mentioned this, Chris seemed to have his own reservations but agreed to do it just once.

The footage Chris sent later showed the lady from the photographs, surprisingly more expressive than I had anticipated.
