A few hours later at the Imperial Palace,
“I have never seen a criminal who used magic be released just by the testimony of the head mage.”
Marquis Nodelli, the husband of Princess Ingrid, the emperor’s sister and daughter of the Empress, said.
When Marquis Nodelli, who had as much power as Vallua, criticized Dubbled, one by one, words of agreement flowed out.
“How does the magic for defense break the barrier? What did the child do right after the barrier was broken? Did she ask for the support of the Imperial Palace, did she want to inform that she was attacked?”
“Yes, rather she brought something to the palace through teleportation device.”
“We didn’t even know what she brought.”
“It means the interrogation didn’t go well. Why is it that the lady could enjoy such privilege?”
The nobles who supported Dubbled started to defend her.
“You mean they need to do the usual interrogation to a 9-years-old? It is certain that there will be a serious after effects, risking a life like that…!”
“She used defence magic, it’s not a rebellion!”
“As a result, the palace is safe. Lady has never used magic to attack the Imperial Palace.”
“That’s not the problem, you idiot.”
“The problem is what happens after this,if we release a sinner this easily right now, there would be people who use a child to attack the palace!”
“You’re thinking too much!”
Looking at the nobles arguing with each other, the Emperor pressed his temple.
The one who argued about Leblaine’s punishment was not the problem, the real problem is what happens next.
If they punished Lebaline right now, then there would be no problem.
I’ll give you the diamond mine in Grypton area. Also the teleportation device inspection and distribution right that Your Majesty is aiming for.
This must be a bribe.
Your Majesty is intelligent.
…Let go of your daughter? No I can’t! Your daughter has dared to use magic in the imperial palace! It’s a felony equivalent to treason!
Please don’t make me use force.
This means I’ll do anything to protect my daughter.
Theodore Dubbled was threatening him.
The west, which borders the land of immigrants is safe because of Dubbled. If they didn’t continue to protects it, the empire will be affected right away. They also protected the amentar river which is called the empre lifeline. If there is war, the damage would be so big. Dubbled also own great influence not only on the military, but also business. If Dubbled acted, there would be no replacement.
‘What a joke.’
For now, he had to step back.
While the emperor was in agony, Duke Vallua open his mouth,
“Dubbled will be too arrogant.”
It was also a trouble in emperor’s mind. If he steps down, he will admit Dubbled’s influence.
The Duke continued after seeing the frowning emperor.
“Would you watch as a thousand-year empire falters with the arrogance of only one family?”
When the Duke of Vallua mentioned the Emperor’s pride that no one had dared to touch, it became a battle of pride between Dubbled and the imperial family.
It doesn’t matter whether Leblaine really attacked the palace or not.
Whether or not the Emperor will lose to Dubbled is what’s important.
“Make a decision, Your Majesty. This is not just a child’s mistake. If your majesty does not show dignity here, the rest of them will cross the line later.”
‘They’re mean people anyway.’
The Emperor’s pride did not belong to him only.
He represents the Imperial Palace and the Empire.
The emperor, who was tapping on the armrest of the chair, opened his mouth.
“It is impossible to use magic that is not permitted in the Imperial Palace. It does not matter whether the caster is a child or an adult…….”
It was that moment.
Boom, boom, boom!
The people inside was shaken greatly.
“Wh, wh , what…!”
The nobles were surprised, and the emperor shouted quickly.
While people were rushing around, the servants ran to check the situation.
Soon after, the court mages moved and hurried to the barrier.
“The palace is being attacked by something invisible!”
The court mage was pale.
“For now, we could only avoid it.”
“Protect His Majesty!”
The attack continued while the emperor was escorted by elite knights and mages
Boom, boom! Boom!
The wall ruptured and a pile of stones fell.
The mages and the priests assigned to the palace blocked the magic as much as possible, but it was not enough.
The nobles who were moving with the emperor spoke with a pale face.
“A, an invisible attack in the palace…!”
“The child of fate’s words were true!”
Trigon, who was escorting the emperor, noticed.
The word “child of fate” is the signal. Then you have to step up.
‘Oh my god!’
The child of fate was just trying to get out for using magic in the imperial palace, but why did he have to provoke the emperor himself?
Trigon, no, Wale listened with a heavy feeling in his heart.
“Your Majesty, you must ask for help from the child of fate.”
The Duke of Vallua shouted,
“What are you saying! Does this mean that the Emperor should beg for help from a mere child?”
“The origin of the attack is still unknown. The child of fate has been attacked once, so she’ll be helpful. If the palace collapses like this, the result will be irreversible.”
The emperor looked around.
“Keep His Majesty safe!”
It was the nobles.
They shrieked under the table.
The Imperial Palace is a symbol of the Empire.
If it collapses, it will be irreversible as Trigon said.
The emperor made a decision.
“…call the Dubbleds.”
Leblaine arrived after some time through the teleportation device, which is Dubbled’s pride.
Leblaine, who appeared with Veronica, looked around.
A golden thread-like line was on the child’s forearm, and as a barrier appeared on the back of her hand.
“Three o’clock. Shoot!”
As the child shouted, Dubbled’s mage and Veronica launched an attack at the point indicated.
Boom, boom, boom!
There was a loud roar in the air, and what appeared was…
It was a man with wings and fangs. The Duke of Vallua murmured unknowingly.
“That’s ridiculous…how could an angel…”
This was definitely the angel he used. The one that appeared after drinking his wife’s blood. When the Duke of Vallua sat down, a smile came to Leblaine’s lips.
I quickly made eye contact with the devil.
‘Now do what I told you to do.’
The devil frowned as if he wasn’t finished, but when I blinked, he finally spoke.
“You cwaught me again. Ck, we’ll see.”
(You caught me again. Ck, we’ll see.)
The devil stared at me and disappeared, saying lines that would only appear in children’s plays.
‘Wow, I’m embarrassed.’
It was a line passionately recommended by Seria.
Cheesy lines work well for him.
Seria said that she wanted to be a writer in her early years, but her dream did not come true.
‘No, more than that…’
I quickly approached the emperor.
“Your Majesty, are you okay?!”
When I spoke with tears, the emperor gulped.
“Did you see it the other day?”
“Yes! I was about to leave the palace and it suddenly attacked me. What’s that? Thankfully, I managed to defend Your Majesty’s palace!”
And I didn’t forget to say stumble.
Veronica ran after seeing me stumble.
“Child! Oh my god, are you okay?”
“How scared you must have been to be in prison with this small body. You must have been under a lot of stress, but you used your power as soon as you came out……!”
‘Good job Veronica!’
I put my hand to my chest and looked at the emperor.
“Am I going to be in trouble again…?”
“I tried to protect you last time, but people dragged me away. I was locked in a dark and scary place. I’m sorry, Your Majesty!”
The emperor was surprised, and the nobles flinched.
‘They must feel sorry for me now right?’
The emperor shook his head holding me by the shoulder.
“Don’t worry, child. Who dares to call the hero a sinner?”
The emperor looked back at the trembling nobles and shouted.
“Give our little hero a sword!”
I looked at the emperor in surprise.
Until now, only the Duke of Amity has been given a sword by the current emperor, Alexander Louerg. Duke of Amity, was a hero when he served as the head of the imperial knights.
The Emperor’s sword was not just a weapon.
It was a symbol to mark me as a hero.
I grinned inwardly.
‘Now who’s gonna call me a sinner!’
“But, Your Majesty, who just attacked the palace?”
When I asked, the emperor opened his eyes wide.
“We will soon find out. We’ll search all over the continent.”
I smiled at the Duke of Vallua, who was trembling with a pale face.
“Yes, Your Majesty.”
He can’t touch the basement because the mansion was taken away, and I have his secret warehouse in my hand where he first called the devil.
‘What is he going to do now?’
The demise of the Vallua family will come sooner than expected.
