The Rune Magician Who Lost Everything to Her Older Sister, Becomes Doted On by the Genius Prince – Chapter 21


Chapter 21: Morning at the Royal Castle

Morning comes.

The sun is always the same.

No matter what happens in the world, no matter how people’s hearts change, it rises in the sky with an indifferent expression.

Even on mornings when you don’t want to wake up, it’s already morning, and it shines telling you to get up.

“…Ugh.”

It was a slightly gloomy morning.

This feeling is also something I haven’t had in a while.

I slowly open my eyelids and lift my heavy body.

“…”

I look at the clock while in a daze.

It was just a little later than usual.

It’s not like I hate my job.

I’m just tired.

After returning from a long-term mission in Laurier, I made a final decision.

I said goodbye to my family and the home I grew up in.

It was a parting I had prepared myself for.

It wasn’t a comfortable place to be, and I didn’t know what love for a family felt like since I had never experienced it.

But still, I couldn’t help but feel something.

After spending more than a decade together, it’s only natural for my heart to waver.

I don’t want to think of myself as pitiful for feeling this way.

“Phew…alright.”

Slaps my face with both hands.

The strength of the pain is just right.

My body is healthy, but my mind is tired.

I have work to do from now on.

I don’t want to worry too much.

Even if it’s just a show, let’s put some spirit into it.

Today, a new job starts again.

I have a light breakfast.

It’s convenient to have a kitchen, toilet, and shower in the room.

I fix my bed head in front of the mirror, change my clothes, and brush my teeth.

I change my shoes and check my final appearance.

It should be perfectly fitted.

I leave the room and head to work.

But there’s no need to hurry.

After all, this is…

“I really…don’t know what will happen in life.”

Because it’s inside the royal castle.

“Good morning, Meiana-sama.”

“Ah, good morning.”

As soon as I leave the room, a guard knight greets me.

I walk nervously because it’s an unfamiliar experience.

They said to come to the office in the morning, but is it too early?

Thinking back on Laurier.

His Highness had already started working earlier than me.

He’s surely still facing documents in his room even now.

I picked up my pace a little and arrived at the second prince’s office.

I took a deep breath and knocked on the door, “Excuse me, it’s Meiana. Your Highness.”

“What is it?” came the response.

“May I come in?”

“Sure, come on in.”

I opened the door with a click, relieved to see the scene just as I had expected.

His Highness was sitting at a table, his hand on the documents.

“Good morning, Meiana.”

“Good morning, Your Highness Alectos.”

His Highness stopped working and asked me kindly, “Did you sleep well?”

“Yes, I slept soundly.”

“Good. I’m glad to hear that.”

His Highness beamed with joy.

“Thank you so much for arranging the room for me!”

“It’s no problem. We have plenty of rooms, and my father approved of it as well.”

I left the Pheles household.

I could not return to the mansion and was without a place to stay, but it was His Highness who offered me a place to live.

He suggested that I should stay in a room in the royal castle.

I was surprised that the Emperor readily agreed to it.

I never thought that I would lose my home and end up living in the royal castle.

“Thank you very much. I will never forget your kindness in granting my selfish request.”

“You’re exaggerating. This is just a fair reward for those who have achieved results.”

“No, if it’s a reward, the special exemption was enough. Really, to go this far for me…”

“You’re very sincere. It’s not just for your sake, anyway. It’s more convenient for you to stay in the royal castle for the work that will begin from now on.”

“Yes.”

His Highness mentions the work that will start from now on.

Even after the work in Laurier finishes, I can still remain as a subordinate of His Highness.

I secretly feel happy about that.

I can still work close to him.

To keep this happiness going, I will do my best today as well.

“Your Highness, what should I do?”

“Well, right now, I’ve ordered the knights to search inside and outside the royal castle.”

The ruins where the Demon God was sealed are in the basement of the royal castle.

By deciphering the Rune Tablet, I learned about the battle with the Demon God that occurred in the past and its aftermath.

The battle against the Demon God took place in this land and a town was built to protect its seal, eventually leading to the formation of a country.

In other words, this country was formed to protect the seal of the Demon God.

Thanks to the knowledge from the tablet, I unexpectedly learned about the formation of the country. However, even more important is the possibility of the Demon God’s revival.

Furthermore, Rune Magic is essential to the seal placed on the Demon God.

“Unfortunately, we haven’t found it yet. Even with the mobilization of magicians searching for the flow of magic… is it in a very deep place, or is it so weak that it cannot be detected?”

“May I join the search as well?”

“Yes, please do. I also want to help, but as you can see, it’s quite a situation here.”

The documents piled up on the table.

His Highness looks busy.

“After this is over, I’ll head over there. Can I count on you for that?”

“Of course.”

I’ll work hard for His Highness who seems to be so busy.

If I can find it before His Highness arrives, I wonder if he will praise me?
