Two hours later, the guards brought the Duke and Duchess of Niclas to the throne room.
Their hands are tied behind their backs and they are treated as if they were criminals.
“Your Majesty!Why are we treated like criminals?!”
“What have we done to you?!”
The king struck Duke Niclas with his fist and slapped the duchess.
The Duke’s nose was bleeding, and the Duchess’s cheeks were red and swollen.
“Your daughter Mira has stolen the Andvaranaut ring! Three years of the state budget were spent on this ring! You are therefore deprived of your titles and all the property of the Dukes of Niclas is confiscated!”
The former duke and his wife turned pale at the king’s words.
“My God! That ring was given to Mira by His Royal Highness the Crown Prince! How could she have stolen it?!”
“That’s right! It was the Crown Prince’s engagement ring.”
The King kicked the former Duke and former Duchess.
The former duke and his wife spat blood out of their mouths.
“Even if we confiscate your property, it’s not enough to pay for the cost of the Andvaranaut ring! We will bury you alive at the border as human pillars!”
The former duke and duchess gasped at the king’s words.
“Where is Liserotte? Bring Liserotte to me and I’ll forgive you! Liserotte, who had nowhere else to go, must have gone to the Dukes!”
“L-Liserotte is, um… She came to the Dukes, but…
“The prince broke off his engagement and banished her… because she was dirty and smelled awful… W-We sent her away… W-We don’t know where she is…”
The king’s veins snapped at the words of the former duke and duchess.
“Squeeze as much magic out of them as you can and throw them in jail!”
The former duke and his wife were taken from the throne room by guards.
“Let go! I’m the duke!”
“Let go of me! I’m the Duchess!”
They shouted and went on a rampage, but when the guards beat them, they became quiet and were taken away.
“Find Liserotte! She must not have gone far because she has no money!”
The king ordered a search for Liserotte, and the guards left the throne room.
“I will not let you go, Liserotte! I will find you!”
The king’s eyes were bloodshot. He clenched his fists and said to himself.
But Liserotte never stepped on Nebel’s soil again.
