“Alright, this should keep him down for a while.”

I stepped on the fallen Henry and held the hem of my dress with both hands as I ran towards the door.

Using this power on the prince of my own country was expected, but using it on the king of the neighboring country was unexpected.

If I were the heroine, I could just wait for the hero to come and save me, but as a villainess, I have to be self-sufficient around here. . .

As I put on a self-deprecating smile and reach for the door, someone appeared from the other side.

――Click!

“What’s wrong! I heard a loud noise. . .?!”

Dimitri-sama jumped in and looked startled when he saw the fallen Henry.

“You’re late?! Dimitri-sama!”

“S-Sorry. I was planning to burst in within five minutes.”

Ah, that was a wise decision.

I just couldn’t hold out for that long. I’m sorry.

“‘ll have the guards take care of him,” Dimitri says, having figured out what happened. 

Looking at Henry who was unconscious , Dimitri-sama sighed and said.

“I’m sorry for what my brother has done.”

“Yes. Oh, and it seems that Henry killed the former king himself. He confessed to it earlier.”

“―?!”

Dimitri-sama quickly made a judgment from that information.

He orders the guards to take the king to the underground dungeon, the one that doesn’t sink in the sea, of course.

They planned to interrogate him and question him about the murder of the former king.

However, they wanted to keep him asleep for a while until Cid and I could escape, so they had the red mage cast sleep magic on him repeatedly.

I was waiting for Cid’s return in Dimitri-sama’s room, just like last night. 

“My brother had close ties with the church. Over the past five years or so, his ideology gradually leaned towards the church, and he began to neglect the mages. Reports have come in that your whereabouts were revealed through a tip from the church.”

“The church, huh.”

I wonder where they found out. 

I haven’t visited the church, but could I have been seen in the town?

But even so, the timing was too perfect.

It’s as if I was being tracked by GPS or something.

Of course, there’s no such thing in this world.

“Will you tell Cid about this?” Dimitri ask.

“I understand. But, Dimitri-sama, what will you do from now on?”

I asked Dimitri-sama, who was busy signing documents and writing letters. 

Henry won’t be able to continue as king.

Planning a futile battle after killing the former king. And using demon beasts for such atrocities.

It seems like burying Henry and his dark history is the only option.

“. . .”

Dimitri-sama pressed his fingers between his eyes and wore a stern expression.

He seems to still be contemplating when asked about his plans.

There was no answer to my question.
