I Became the Fiancé of a Crazy Heroine - Chapter 33-2
The Duke Adelaira residence, the family head’s room.
Robbins heard the news that Sion and Hanette had returned, but he did not leave the room.
Yenid went out instead and talked to the two, but there was no real gain from the conversation.
She could only reluctantly leave when they said that nothing had happened.
“I wonder what happened?”
“…Did Sion go first and Hanette follow?”
“There is something. Sion has a reason to go to the palace, but Hanette has no reason to go, right?”
Robbins guessed that Sion had taken the entrance exam for the royal knights.
But he couldn’t figure out what happened afterwards.
He could ask the bureaucrats, but it would take some time, since it had just happened.
“Maybe he met with the head of the royal knights?”
“If it’s because of the enlistment, that’s probably right. But it’s too secretive.”
“I don’t know why they called Hanette.”
“There must be a reason…but it doesn’t fit with joining the knights.”
Joining into the royal knights was something that was done with Sion in mind, and Hanette was a complete outsider.
Although Hanette was Sion’s fiancée, she had no connection with the royal knights.
It seemed more natural that Sion was trying to use Hanette in some way.
‘Maybe they were told to keep it a secret, or they both wanted to hide it.’
The given conditions were limited.
1. Those who could give orders to the children of the Duke and Marquis.
2. Those who could be involved in the entrance examination of the royal knights.
3. Those who could call the fiancé of the examinee.
No matter how many times he thought about it, there was only one conclusion left.
‘…Did the king call Hanette?’
If It was a king, It meets all three conditions.
Hanette must have been called belatedly, because there was some problem that arose during the conversation with Sion.
Perhaps Sion had mentioned Hanette regarding his joining the royal knights.
‘What could be done using Hanette as an excuse?’
Having a fiancé doesn’t make it easier to joining the royal knights.
However, if the king himself had intervened, it meant she was interested in Sion, and there was no choice but to consider his entry positively.
In other words, only the opposite scenario remained.
‘If he used Hanette to refuse joining…’
There was no other conclusion that could be drawn, although he could not be sure yet.
He must have tried to attract outsiders by creating an unexpected situation.
Perhaps the king tried to resolve the cause of the problem that Sion mentioned, but couldn’t.
“I’ll have to look into this later.”
“It couldn’t be anything really bad, right?”
“If it were, they would have told me first. You don’t have to worry.”
From Robbins’ perspective, it was actually the choice he had hoped for.
Sion’s value should not become too high, and he should not give any leverage to Marquis Laird.
Above all, he didn’t like the idea of using Hanette.
‘Just cooperating with each other is a good thing. If we can trust each other, we won’t have any problems even after the two get married…’
The western region of the Alain Kingdom, a region filled with dark clouds.
The sunlight hadn’t shone in this place for as long as anyone could remember, and the cloudy sky stretched wide above.
While the weather had changed in other territories of the western region over time, this place remained unchanged.
Local lords had dispatched troops to investigate the cause, but all they received were reports stating that nothing could be found.
“I feel like it’s somewhere around here…”
A young man was searching around, looking restless.
His fair skin was tinged with a pale russet color, and his blue eyes seemed to shine brightly.
His black hair flowed smoothly despite not being touched by sunlight.
Soran Silaize, a commoner, followed his instincts and hurriedly moved his feet.
His instincts kept urging him to search for something relentlessly.
He didn’t know why he had to search for something, but he had no choice but to follow his instincts for now.
Soran reached out his hand frequently as he navigated through the thick cliffs.
One of these cliffs was likely hiding what he was looking for.
“Is it this one?”
Soran believed in his instincts and placed his hand on one of the cliffs.
Then, a loud noise came from beyond the cloudy sky, and the clouds began to gather.
From the point where Soran Silaize touched the cliff, a faint current rose, gradually erasing its form.
The clouds emitted a loud sound and spread a pure white light.
At the same time, yellowish rays bent left and right and descended towards Soran Silaize.
A huge lightning bolt poured down, instantly sweeping away the cliff area.
Soran urgently groped the cliff, trying to grab something.
A familiar texture tickled his palm, and Soran Silaize quickly swung it around.
Then, a yellowish diagonal line appeared, and a current burst out between the lightning bolts, completely erasing its traces.
As the lightning disappeared, the clouds that covered the sky gradually faded away.
The cloudy sky grew brighter, and warm sunlight began to shine on the land.
In Soran’s right hand, there was something long and slender held.
“I finally found it.”
Soran smiled and looked up at the sky.
He had finally obtained the Magic Sword that he had longed for.
From the moment he held it in her hand, he instinctively knew its true identity.
“The Magic Sword of lightning… Nailing.”
