โ€œOnii-sama! Viara is heading to the capital. . .Wait, what happened? Whatโ€™s with that expression?โ€

As soon as I returned to the mansion, I rushed into the study and was surprised to see Onii-sama, who had dark circles under his eyes.ย 

He looked more exhausted than I was when I woke up.

โ€œViara. . .โ€

โ€œIs there anything bad?โ€ย 

In his hand were several letters with the royal seal stamped prominently on them.ย 

Reports were also scattered on the desk, and Onii-sama seemed weary from looking at them.ย 

โ€œWell, thereโ€™s good news and bad news, but which do you want to hear first?โ€ย 

What kind of choice is that?ย 

Itโ€™s an impossible dilemma.ย 

โ€œJust tell me everything at once.โ€ย 

If youโ€™re going to do it, do it all at once. My heart has reached the point of resignation. Itโ€™s just bad news anyway, and Iโ€™ll act to destroy everything that comes my way.

Sighing, Onii-sama looked troubled.

โ€œNoah has taken over the Strand Marquis family. His two older brothers were imprisoned for gambling and illegal slave trading, and his father retired and secluded himself. It seems he resigned as the chief priest and became the head of the Strand Marquis.โ€


I was worried about the amount of antacids he was taking. I was shocked to hear that such a thing had happened.

โ€œOnii-sama, didnโ€™t you know?โ€

โ€œI had some idea. But Noah and I usually talk about magic tools and good ingredients for antacids. . .We donโ€™t really talk about family matters.โ€ย 

โ€œThatโ€™s right. Youโ€™re just pure friends.โ€

Onii-sama also uses a lot of antacids.

It seems that their friendship is not befitting of nobles, so it seems I found out about it after the fact.

โ€œThe problem is, Noah wants to marry you, Viara.โ€


I snatched the letter from Noah, which my brother had received, and indeed, it was written there that he hopes for a marriage with Viara Marcus. And there was even the Kingโ€™s signature.

โ€œWhat does this mean. . .? Iโ€™m just a fallen noble daughter.โ€

โ€œViara, right now you are considered a powerless young lady who has been taken away by Cid.โ€

I see.

The arrest warrant for Cid is still in effect, so I need to resolve that quickly, or the lie will become the truth. No matter how much I deny it, people wonโ€™t keep their mouths shut.

โ€œIn that case, Iโ€™ll go and save Cid right away! If I plead with them, they will understand the truth, right?โ€

โ€œI canโ€™t let my precious sister be put in harmโ€™s way! Besides. . .this is the bigger problem.โ€

He showed me another letter, and I was speechless.

โ€•โ€•Magician Cid will be executed in three days.

It was the first time I felt dizzy with anger.ย 

The reason is the date on the letter.

Calculating the sent date and the โ€œthree days later,โ€ it meant tomorrow morning.

โ€œOnly twelve hours left. . .?! Why?!โ€

I slammed the letter on the desk and immediately tried to leave the room. But Onii-sama grabbed my arm tightly.ย 

โ€œWait! Iโ€™ll go! I donโ€™t want to believe it, but Noah is pulling the strings behind the scenes. He manipulated the church as he pleased and made Prince Roque his puppet to gain control of the royal family. If Cid disappears, Viara will be within his reach.โ€

Why me?

I have no memories of being approached as a romantic interest.

โ€œI donโ€™t understand the meaning.โ€

โ€œJust appearing together doesnโ€™t mean itโ€™s a romantic relationship.โ€

โ€œStop pretending to know everything.โ€

โ€œI had a hunch that Noah had feelings for you . . .But youโ€™ve always been engaged to Prince Roque. Besides, Noah is a commoner and a former priest, so he canโ€™t marry a dukeโ€™s daughter due to too many complications.โ€

Even a priest can marry if they are a commoner. Marriages with nobles are not recognized from the perspective of power concentration and corruption.

However, if Noah-sama resigns as a priest and inherits the Marquis family, itโ€™s a different story.

โ€œI donโ€™t know when he started planning all this, but it seems that it was a miscalculation for Cid to abduct you immediately after the engagement was broken. Thatโ€™s why he gave advice to Prince Roque and issued the order to capture Cid. If Cid disappears, Viara will be within reach for him.โ€

โ€œThen, did he also kidnap Elsa? And is he manipulating His Majesty and the Queen? Itโ€™s all Noah-sama?โ€

Onii-sama nodded with a bitter expression.

โ€œWhy would he go to such lengths. . .?โ€

I was skeptical, but Onii-sama seemed to be convinced.ย 

He gently released his hand from my arm and placed his left hand on the desk, wearing a troubled expression.

The sunlight shining through the window made his beautiful golden hair sparkle.

โ€œThe darkness in the hearts of gloomy people like us. . .runs deep.โ€

โ€œWhy are you trying to act cool?โ€

I was annoyed by his attempt to be a little cool.ย 

Onii-sama turned towards me and gave instructions Rosso who was waiting .

โ€œAs a friend, I want to stop Noah. Iโ€™m heading to the capital right away. Rosso, issue the order for the first unit to deploy.โ€


Of course, I was also fully determined to go.

As I was about to prepare immediately and head towards the door, Onii-sama stopped me.

โ€œViara, you canโ€™t. Wait here.โ€


โ€œWe have our own plan here. Viara, just wait. Cid also wants that.โ€

It all started with the cancellation of my engagement, so why am I being left behind?

I grew frustrated with Onii-sama, who didnโ€™t tell me anything.

โ€œIโ€™ll go on my own!โ€


I lifted my dress skirt and stormed out of the room.ย 

There, Onii-samaโ€™s fully armed subordinates were lined up.

โ€œMiss, sorry about this.โ€

โ€œWe were told to keep Miss locked up and not to let her leave the mansion under any circumstances.โ€

โ€œPlease donโ€™t kill me.โ€

Why is there someone already begging for their life?ย 

Facing a weak dukeโ€™s daughter like myself, there were twenty strong men standing in my way.

โ€œGet out of my way!โ€

I glared at them with bulging veins, but Rosso approached me from behind and restrained me.

โ€œLet go of me!โ€

โ€œOjou-sama, please wait quietly. We will bring Cid back.โ€

โ€œNo! Iโ€™m going too!โ€

I shouted throughout the mansion, but I was restrained by Rosso and pushed back into the room.ย
