Chapter 37: The calm before the storm
I couldn’t understand what Eliana was saying, and my mouth was stupidly hanging open.
What do you mean you flew like a bird?
“I see. Is it shape-shifting magic?”
Bern seems to have an idea.
“Yes. I recently met someone who uses shape-shifting magic, and I was able to trace it. It’s very useful, but I’m afraid I don’t have much time to use it.”
Let’s try to summarize the information we have received so far.
Eliana was not born with sacred magic, but she seems to have magic that traces magic.
And this magic can be used only for a limited time.
Earlier, Eliana had said that she would trace the sacred magic of Bern.
Could it be that in my first life she became a saint by tracing Bern’s holy magic?
But Eliana used her healing powers often, even though she had a limited time. How did she do it?
There are still many mysteries.
“Your Royal Highness. Are you here?”
Suddenly, I heard a voice. A bodyguard who came to look for Bern approaches us.
“We’ve been interrupted. I’m afraid I’ll give up for today. See you later!”
Eliana suddenly disappears. I hear the sound of wings above me and look up to see a bird flying away.
“Is that Eliana?”
“Marie, that girl feels dangerous. I’ll take you back to your room.”
In the end, Eliana doesn’t seem to have accomplished her task, but maybe she’ll show up again.
In my first life, I was a fool.
Otoo-sama, who took pity on the daughter who had lost her mother at a young age, spoiled me rotten.
Otoo-sama bought me clothes, jewelry, and anything else I wanted and never made me do anything I didn’t want to do.
I listened to his sweet words and ignored his admonitions.
I was pampered and made to feel good. But behind my back, I was called “Princess Clunker.”
so I was taken advantage of.
Eliana was not only attracted to Edward but to other men as well. Their fiancée wanted to get rid of Eliana, but she was a saint. A saint is not to be trifled with.
That’s where I was noticed.
The daughter of the Grand Duke, a relative of the royal family, and the daughter of the hero of the Third Battle of Craina. In addition, as the fiancée of the first prince, Eduard, I was the perfect banner for them.
All you have to do is say, “Princess Mariel told me to do it.”
It would have been devastating to have been deported after being used as a banner, but that’s just how stupid I was.
“If possible, I didn’t want to see Eliana in my second life.”
In the end, I couldn’t sleep the day I met Eliana and stayed up all night.
“Ruria, did you wake up?”
There was no way I could sleep now, so I got out of bed and saw Ruria tilting his head.
He’s half asleep.
Ruria and the others were allowed to stay in the same room with me and could sleep wherever they wanted.
Luna and Sealver sleep curled up at the foot of the bed.
Blanc is nocturnal, so I let him out in the courtyard facing our room, but he might be sleeping in a tree around there because of the dawn.
Ruria was snuggled up beside me, or he would have woken up when I woke up.
I stroke Ruria’s mane.
“I’m sorry I woke you up. You can still sleep.”
Rolling over in bed, Ruria began to sleep again.
They’re so cute. I’d like to be at peace with them, but…
“Eliana will show herself again.”
