The Heroine Ran Away! the Villainous Daughter Has to Break off Her Engagement and Tame Her Watchdog Mage – Chapter 13

𝐂𝐡𝐚𝐩𝐭𝐞𝐫 𝟏𝟑: 𝐅𝐢𝐧𝐚𝐥𝐥𝐲, 𝐠𝐨𝐨𝐝 𝐧𝐞𝐰𝐬 𝐡𝐚𝐬 𝐚𝐫𝐫𝐢𝐯𝐞𝐝!

One day at the Marcus residence.

Sitting with me, having tea, is a handsome man with blond hair and silver eyes.

“Is it okay if I break off the engagement? Onii-sama would gladly fire the magic cannon at the castle for Viara’s sake.”

“Onii-sama, please refrain from saying dangerous things.”

Due to Roque-sama’s extremely insincere attitude, my brother Ethan was furious, with a vein popping on his temple.

Now that our parents are gone, we are the only siblings left. As a result, our trust and bond are deep.

“We’ll keep the magical cannon prepared, ready to fire at any time.”

The salon in the afternoon is filled with an eerily chilling atmosphere, not just a figment of my imagination.

Driven by resentment towards the mistreatment of his sister, Onii-sama’s expression has turned demonic.

“The magic cannon causes too much damage. Please make it a magic gun instead.”

“I see, Cid. Lend me all your magic power.”

“Understood.”

The Duke Marcus family boasts the strongest military power in the country. The magic cannon and magic gun developed by Onii-sama are new weapons that have not yet been reported to the royal family.

Uh-oh.

Onii-sama is planning a rebellion.

Just like Cid, there is a purple spinel brooch shining on Onii-sama’s chest, so he’s up to something.

“Please stop this already. It’s something you can’t do. . .”

Well, that’s how it is at home, my older brother is extremely shy around others, and he becomes remarkably weak when outside. Though he may seem to be glaring silently, in reality, my older brother is trembling like a newborn deer.

“I’m serious! How can I allow Viara to be treated with contempt?”

“Well then, please go directly to His Majesty the King and make your plea.”

“Ugh. . .! That’s. . .”

While the young ladies praise me saying, “he has a mysterious charm,” the truth is, I’m an incredible coward.

I can’t even assert myself with the butler, let alone make a direct appeal to the King.

“It’s alright. Prince Roque is currently most fond of the Count’s daughter Annette. I believe he will switch his attention to her.”

Over the past year, I’ve secretly struggled to find someone who can handle The Prince besides the heroine.

And although she’s far from being the heroine, I’ve found someone who captivates the attention of The Prince and has multiple suitors.

She is the Count’s daughter Annette, who looks nothing like a sixteen-year-old.

With beautiful black hair, fair skin, enchanting slanted eyes, and plump lips. Her chest protrude so much that her uniform makes you feel sorry for her, and she is known as the school’s sexiest girl.

Annette-sama is an ambitious person who doesn’t hide her desire to become the Crown Princess.

I quickly seized the opportunity when she approached me with hostility and introduced her to The Prince. In just a few days, The Prince became infatuated with her.

The two of them quickly deepened their friendship at the speed of light and were rumored to have become intimate in the Royal Palace in the castle just the other day. 

Rather than reproaching The Prince, the Queen is so tolerant that she even suggests allowing their relationship if he plans to take Annette as a mistress in the future.

I suppose she only sees me as a convenient tool to support the Prince.

However, those around me are sympathetic, and criticism towards me is surprisingly low.

To an outsider, the prince would appear as a “foolish prince who got involved with his fiancée’s friend.”

From my perspective, it’s going exactly as planned, and I have to be careful not to let my laughter slip.

“I have already instructed Annette-sama to skillfully persuade and take the position of the fiancée. I believe there will be some movement soon. Especially since His Majesty and the Queen are currently absent on a trip. . .”

They will definitely try to dissolve the engagement on their own. 

If not, I’ll be in trouble.

I thought that with this, I would finally be liberated from the prince.

“But if we want to dissolve the engagement, don’t we have to go to the church?”

In the case of nobles, they usually perform the engagement ceremony with magic. Dissolving the engagement is not as simple as tearing up a piece of paper; we have to go to the church and have the priest perform the ritual to dissolve it.

If the other party dies, it automatically dissolves, but I can’t possibly kill The Prince, so we should follow the proper procedure at the church to dissolve it.

“Shouldn’t we just kill him instead? I have a bad feeling about this.”

Cid says with a distant look in his eyes.

Onii-sama agrees as well, but if we kill The Prince, it will only lead to chaos since there is no other prince to succeed the throne.

“If  Prince Roque is gone, who will inherit the throne?” 

Currently, the prince doesn’t have any siblings.

But Onii-sama calmly sips his tea and casually says, 

“The younger brother of the king has two sons, right? They may be a bit rough around the edges since they’re in the knight order, but as long as we assemble capable subordinates for politics and governance, it should be manageable. 

It won’t be worse than Prince Roque.”

“I see.”

“Besides, who would want to serve Roque-sama with loyalty? No one, right? No one at all.”

Onii-sama passionately argues.

In any case, if that man were to ascend the throne, this country would be in trouble, so I can understand Cid’s sentiment of “let’s just kill him.”

“Miss, a letter has arrived from Roque-sama.”

But at this timing, a letter from the prince himself is delivered, summoning me personally.

The butler hands it to me, and I quickly read it, trembling with joy.

“It’s a summons from the prince! The meeting place is the church! He definitely intends to propose the dissolution of the engagement!”

Seeing me stand up from my chair and rejoice, my brother chuckles.

“I see. Then let’s prepare the documents for the dissolution of the engagement right away. Please wait for about ten minutes. We just need to fill in the date, sign it, and seal it.”

You’re well-prepared, Onii-sama!

I see, he intends to extract compensation. Onii-sama is quite shrewd in these matters.

“Miss, I will accompany you to the church as well.”

“Oh, worried? Even if you’re a mage, you can’t enter the ritual room.”

“Even so, I insist.”

The church and mages don’t get along. 

As a result, even as a bodyguard, Cid cannot enter the building.

There seems to be a power struggle between the church and mages at the heart of the country, and they generally ignore each other.

The church’s standpoint is that mages who can use dark magic are not recognized as humans, but it’s unclear why Cid, who can use both dark and holy magic, is being ignored.

Usually, when I go to the church, I go with my maid Elsa, but since Cid insists on going, I decided to have him accompany me.

“If Elsa is there, it will be fine, right?”

Elsa, a 20-year-old maid, is no ordinary girl. She may be slender, but she can use magic reasonably well and has also learned martial arts.

Moreover, she is the daughter of Cid’s Master. She won’t lose to any ordinary man.

“Well, she is Master’s beloved daughter. I trust her.”

“Oh, then what’s the worry?”

When I look into his red eyes, he quickly averted his gaze.

“I just don’t want to leave Miss to anyone other than me.”

What a killer line.

It’s impossible to remain calm after hearing that.

I felt my cheeks flush and my body heat up.

“What are you saying. . .”

I also lowered my gaze and fell into silence.

While Onii-sama directs an intense killing intent towards Cid, I am abducted by the butler and taken to the study.

“Miss.”

“What is it?”

“If you’re going out, I’ll be given an allowance, so please take me with you too.”

“Should I just take you out of the country?”

There’s no romance for a villainess, it seems.
