The Heroine Ran Away! the Villainous Daughter Has to Break off Her Engagement and Tame Her Watchdog Mage – Chapter 44

𝐂𝐡𝐚𝐩𝐭𝐞𝐫 𝟒𝟒: 𝐁𝐫𝐢𝐞𝐟 𝐏𝐞𝐚𝐜𝐞

The city of Soreal was very quiet and peaceful. With a predominantly middle-class population, there was not much disparity in wealth, and people’s temperaments seemed calm.

Since dresses attract attention, I pleaded with the dining hall staff and rented a room before going outside to change clothes.

As soon as I got a room at the inn, I immediately went to the church and donated the apology stone.

“Is it alright to donate something so valuable?”

The kind-looking priest confirmed multiple times.

“Yes, it’s something I no longer need.”

Cid hid the purple brooch and disguised himself as a traveler. The relationship between the church and the mages was not good, so it was strictly forbidden to reveal his identity.

Ugh. . .It’s the glasses after all.

My maiden heart fluttered, and the excitement pierced through so much that it became riddled with holes.

“I’m scared. Glasses are scary.”

“Vi-sama, what kind of phobia is that?”

It would be nice if he could wear glasses with a stern gaze. I want him to draw unattractive eyes, so I won’t get fluttery.

Ah, I covered my face with my hand so that Cid wouldn’t come into view, but my fingers naturally opened, and I could see through the gap.

Being too suspicious, Cid became worried if I was feeling unwell.

After leaving the church, we immediately returned to the inn.

“I wonder if we can catch something with that.”

Cid muttered, still facing forward.

“Probably. When the church receives a donation of a certain amount of assets or items, they always contact headquarters. It will take about two days for the information to be shared, but if there are spies following us, they will definitely show up to confirm the facts.” 

The priest to whom I entrusted the jewel earlier was a very kind-looking old man, and he probably wouldn’t embezzle it.

As Cid said, they would inform headquarters about the gemstone donation.

“Well then, shall we take it easy today? You must be tired from being imprisoned in the fortress.”

He took off his glasses and put them in his inner pocket, then took my hand and started walking.

I feel like Cid, who was always running around, even during our time at the fortress and when we went to the capital, must be more exhausted. . .

As I stared at his profile, without even asking anything, he replied, “I’m fine.”

On the way back to the inn, there were still many problems piled up and nothing had been resolved, but I felt the most joy in being able to walk side by side with him like this.

After returning to the inn, we decided to have a meal and then lock ourselves in our room.

Cid took a short nap and then started reading the magic book he had borrowed without permission from Fumble’s royal castle.

I leisurely soaked in the bath to rest my body while Cid dried my hair for me.

He took my long hair in his hands and narrowed his eyes.

“I’ve always wanted to touch it like this. I envied Elsa.”

“It’s strange for you to envy a maid, Cid.”

I never thought he would think such a thing since we had always maintained a certain distance as guards. . .

After fixing my hair, we decided to communicate with Onii-sama.

Onii-sama, who received the call, seemed very happy to hear from me. 

With a lively voice that seemed to be blooming flowers, I thought maybe I should call him every day if he was this happy.

It seems that brother had heard about us being at Fumble’s fortress through the communication.

“Ah, I’m glad is you are  doing well Viara ! I was about to launch a full-scale attack from the sea.”

“Oh, Onii-sama. The magic cannon won’t reach, will it?”

“Heh, just in case, I stayed up all night for the past three days to extend the range. Don’t worry, I can bombard Fumble from here right away!”

It’s definitely not okay.

Please don’t do such a dangerous thing.

“I’m here, so there’s no need to bombard fumble.”

What about my sister’s safety?!

As I pouted, Onii-sama’s loud laughter echoed from the communication device.

“Ahahaha, Cid is here too, isn’t he?”

“Huh?”

When I looked at Cid next to me, he was blushing and covering his cheeks with both hands, saying “Kyaa.”

What’s that? Do you think he’s cute?

He’s cute, right?!

“If Cid is here, then it’s okay, right? will everything really be fine?”

When I asked Onii-sama, he replied, “Of course.”

Wait, does that mean he can deflect the magic cannon?

“. . .”

“What’s wrong, Vi-sama?”

His smile was clear and bright. There was nothing more to ask.

And then, Onii-sama declared at his own pace.

“Leave the annihilation of Fumble’s castle and fortresses to me!”

“There’s no way I can leave it to you, brother?”

Even though he’s not good at making eye contact with people, how did he become skilled at battles and weapon improvements? What kind of skill distribution is that?

Oh God, the design flaw is terrible.

“Jokes aside, is everything the same over there?”

My brother, at the main residence of the  Duke Marcus’s, was waiting for communication from the royal family regarding my broken engagement and Cid’s arrangements. Once the message arrives, he plans to take countermeasures. However, there has been no word from the other side.

“It’s strangely the same. I thought the troops would come right away, but there was still no notification. They seem to know that i am not in the Duke Marcus’s mansion.”

“I see.”

If it were the short-tempered Prince Roque, he would probably send troops to the Duke Marcus’s mansion. 

Cid and I exchanged glances and thought that this situation was indeed strange.

“Is everyone at the mansion doing well?”

“Everyone is doing well. The young men were feeling down without Viara, so I sent them to the snowy mountains for training.”

“What are you doing, Onii-sama?”

The snowy mountains in Duke Marcus’s territory are famous for their harsh cold weather all year round. I wonder if everyone is still alive. 

We were amazed that they were sent there even though there was no need for it at the moment.

“Well, His Majesty and the Queen will return tomorrow. I sent a letter, so the arrangements for Cid will probably be canceled.”

“That’s right. It’s all about me and His Highness, so it has nothing to do with Cid. It’s enough for me to be pursued. . .Well, I don’t intend to get caught.”

“Ahahaha! Viara can think of it as a trip. Eventually, come back to Duke Marcus’s territory and live here.”

I can’t do that. But since Onii-sama is serious about it, I just laughed it off for now.

“My precious Vi, take care of yourself. Don’t push yourself and let Cid handle the troublesome things!”

Onii-sama said he would continue to observe the situation on the other side and then ended the communication. 

Or rather, Cid laughed and said, “I’ll contact you again!” and abruptly ended the call without waiting for a response. From behind Onii-sama, I could hear the voice of his subordinate shouting, “We still have documents over here!” 

It seems they are busy with preparations in case they have to counter the Roselia Army. I apologized in my mind for causing them trouble. 

Cid quickly tidied up the communication set and sat in front of the writing desk in the room. 

It seems like he wants to continue reading the magic book. 

“What’s wrong?”

“Oh, it’s nothing~.”

What is it? There was a slightly sulky aura coming from Cid’s back.

I sat on the bed and spoke towards his back.

“Is it because I said it has nothing to do with you, Cid?”

“. . .You aid it has nothing to do with me.”

Is he acting like a child?!

Because what happened at the annulment ceremony is my responsibility. Cid did nothing wrong, he was just waiting outside the church.

“I just stated the fact, it’s not something for you to sulk about.”

“I know. But. . .”

Cid, who was facing the desk, turned around slightly to look at me.

“I am a part of you.”

“!”

Beyond being a pet, he’s already making slave-like statements. . .?

Having an attractive mage as an item is such a luxurious possesion.

“”. . .””

Cid immediately turned back to the desk, giving off an atmosphere that he wanted to end this conversation. He seemed to be aware that it wasn’t very mature of him.

However, what’s scary is that I accepted it and even felt happy about it. I’ve already immersed myself in the affection Cid gives me and I couldn’t live alone anymore.
