Until the Exiled Duke’s Daughter, Wilhelmina, Becomes Happy – Chapter 78

Chapter 78: The Pope 1

The Pope travels once every few years, from summer to autumn. This year, his schedule has been made, and according to my letter, our country is included in the destination.

Of course, it will be in the form of visiting several neighboring countries, so it will be a matter of later for the Pope to come to our country, which does not border the Papal territory.

In other words, we have a chance to talk to him directly.

Soon after the attack on the Royal Shadow, Lex and I disappeared. We traveled to the country where the Pope is staying, and sent him a letter.

Of course, normally the letter would not reach the Pope. But after I gave him the magic stone. I received a message to secretly meet him.

At night, in the empty Cathedral, Lex and I kneel down and wait for his arrival.

As I began to lose feeling in my knees, I heard a door open and close. Then, a slow rustling sound. A presence passes by our side.

“I’m sorry for keeping you waiting. Raise your face. In front of God, all children are equal.”

Slowly raising our faces once, and then looking ahead.

The small old man dressed in a robe with gold thread embroidery in blue and white, a combination of colors only allowed for the Pope, can only be His Holiness Namadrius IV.

We bow our heads once again.

“Greetings to His Eminence Namadorius IV, the Supreme Delegate of God, Master of the Holy Staff, my name is Alex Peltra.”

“Greetings to His Eminence Namadorius IV, the Supreme Delegate of God, Master of the Holy Staff. I am Vilhelmina, wife of Alex.”

“Thank you for your courteous greetings, Peltra couple.

The Pope sat in a chair brought in by a servant. The security is far away and the servants are extremely few. There are only three people in the large church.

The Pope took out a jewel box from his pocket and retrieved our donated magic stone, “Tears of the World”.

“A few days ago, adventurers who said they were your subordinates brought this to donate to this old fool.

“Yes, please receive it.”

“Thank you for your faithfulness.”

When he said that, he raised the holy seal twice, and said the prayer words. He blessed us.

“Well, I believed that there is probably a great secret in your magic stone.”

“You have a wise eye.”

He said that with an interesting smile.

“The adventurers you sent did not tell the story of this wonderful adventure to obtain this magic stone. And they just handed over a letter without reward. It has been 20 years since this old fool became Pope and named Namadrius IV, but there has never been such a person.”

It’s true… How much of the dangerous adventure result and the treasure obtained are offered. There is no one who does not show the value of the treasure and hence their own value.

“I am sorry if this offends you, but in case of emergency, it must not be stolen goods. I investigated this large magic stone, but there is no story of theft from anywhere and there is no stone with the same shape and color.”

“No, it’s understandable that you would be concerned. I swear to the supreme god, this is not stolen property.”

“Yes, yes. Of course. I have confirmed this by seeing you again. Your souls are not so clouded.”

His Holiness Namadrius IV looks at us with deep blue eyes. Eyes that are called the eyes of the gods, which discern the heart.

I couldn’t help but take a deep breath.

“However, this magic stone I received from you is not something obtained through adventure, that’s correct.”

“Do you understand…?”

“Of course, if a monster capable of producing a magic stone of this size appeared, it would have reached even the ears of this old fool. It’s also about conquering dungeons. That’s not what I felt from those adventurers.”

Everything has been seen through. However, it’s because we are not thought to have acted with ill will that we were able to be received in such an audience .

“Yes. I would like to tell you the secret, the secret that was even hidden from the King of Patrikainen.”

“It’s a pleasure.”

I nod to Lex. He opens the trunk he had placed to the side with slow movements, as we had previously decided.

He takes out Mina#13 and sets the trunk upright on top of it.

I also stand up.

“Your Highness, this is our secret.”

I pour magic into Mina#13 and after a short time there is a dry sound.

He opens the drawer, puts the newly made 5 carat size magic stone in his hand, and kneels down in front of the Highness.

The wrinkled hand of the Highness picks up the magic stone, shading it in the moonlight.

“…Did you…create the magic stone?”

“Yes.”

His Holiness slapped himself on the bald head with his opposite hand.

“Well, well. It’s a more stimulating story than defeating an ancient dragon and obtaining it.”
