“She’s a talented kid. She’ll go up to the level of a Great wizard.”
‘Dessia Helly is going to be a big shot.’
This is a fact because the setting is set to be like that.
“Well done, Old Man.”
He is an old man who is not honest with his feelings.
“Come to think of it, I would like to ask you something.”
“In three months, there will be a banquet to celebrate the victory from the Great War. You know that, don’t you?”
“Of course I know.”
It is an annual banquet held by the Imperial court to commemorate the survival from the Great war of the ancient times. Of course there’s no way he didn’t know about it.
‘Five years ago was my last attendance…….’
During the years that he went off track since the death of the Third Empress, Raymond confined himself in the Fifth Palace and did not come out of the world.
“You want to ask if I’m going to attend this banquet, right?
“As expected, you can predict the future Fifth Prince.”
Since ancient times, banquets have also been an official place for nobles to stand behind those in power.
There was such settings.
“It’s good to be honest.”
“This is a very small advantage for me.”
Raymond opened his mouth with a smile on his face as he looked at Lisefield.
“I’m going to attend.”
He vowed to take off his reputation as a “Fool” and make a full-fledged move. This banquet will be the first stage.
‘Since I’ve decided to do it, let’s be clear.’
His mind’s made up.
“Yes, Your Highness the Fifth.”
“Can you take me out of the Imperial City?”
Lisefield was surprised by the sudden decision of the Fifth Prince.
“You’re going out of the Imperial City?”
He asked again to be sure with his eyes open-wide.
“Yes, I’m going out of the Imperial City.”
“From what you’ve told me, you’re sneaking out without a separate escort, right?”
“As expected, the old man and I are on the same wavelength.”
It was good that there was no need to explain for a long time.
“If you don’t mind, may I know your destination?”
“On the slums.”
“Oh, my God!”
The Master of the blue tower sat down holding his head.
What the prince just said seems to be shocking.
“Fifth Prince, the slums of the capital are too dangerous to go without escorts!”
As the Empire fell, the darkness of the capital was as deep as the abyss.
However, whether or not he knows the worries of Lisefield, Raymond was just smiling.
“Isn’t a Great wizard enough to become my Imperial escort?”
“Oh, my lord, Fifth Prince……. The Imperial Palace was just attacked recently. Don’t you know how precious the blood of the House of Pilius is?”
The House of Pilius. The Imperial family, who inherited the blood, they are able to control the ancient weapon ‘Soul Sword’ that lies dormant in the Empire.
If it were not for the existence of the ancient weapon, the Empire would have already collapsed.
The great ancient beings that supported the fallen Empire was the Soul soldiers.
“That’s why I’m going.”
“Can you elaborate it for a little bit?”
There is a one-arm swordmaster in the slums of the capital. He has the talent of a swordmaster and knows how to enlighten him.
“You’ll know when the time comes.”
It’s too early to explain him the details.
“The two thousand year old promise.”
“Would you follow?”
Lisefield first stopped asking the Fifth Prince, but he could hardly prevent his sighs from bursting.
“The elderly shouldn’t be worried, so don’t worry too much.”
“I’ll have to. If anything happens to you, the Emperor will strike me in the neck.”
Raymond, who was about to answer, “No way.” He had no choice but to shut up.
Perhaps because of the recent change in him, the emperor’s affection deepened.
He’ll be upset if he came back from the slums with any injuries.
“Your Highness the Fifth is no longer a fool.”
Though he said it thoughtlessly, Lisefield denied it strictly, solemnly and seriously within himself.
