Evona’s family home was destroyed, and Hubert and Evona were moved to a remote area in the north.
Because the royal family’s feuds were quite scandalous, the king quickly decided that it was best to deal with them privately.
It was only after they left that Cecilia learned they had been taken to the northern border.
“The northern frontier?”
Cecilia asked, thinking she had misheard, and Syxe nodded.
Is this a sufficient metric, or is it worse than an execution?
The northern frontier is said to freeze everything in winter and summer, and there are no major cities or towns located there.
Only asylums where sinners are rounded up and forced to work their entire lives until they die in order to repent of their sins.
It’s not an environment for two aristocrats to endure.
None of this would have happened if they had been less greedy. The desire for the throne, the desire to be queen, and the consequences of defiling their own hands are all the result of one’s own actions.
Self-inflicted, karmic retribution.
The misdeeds of Hubert and Evona are then passed on to the children as folktales.
[If you do something bad, you’ll be taken to the ice!]
[If you are greedy and have no regard for others, you will lose everything, just like the wicked woman.]
The unspoken words were passed down through the kingdom, setting a bad example for children to follow in a straight line.
It was only a few months later that the date for Syxe and Cecilia’s wedding was set.
The whole country rejoiced at the news and looked forward to their wedding day.
