The grass that had been on the floor rose into the air, and the flock of birds that had gathered in the area around the carriage and the sky were pulled into the whirlwind. The gust of wind blew so hard that it pulverised the flock of blackbirds in an instant and turned them into a viscous black liquid.
The things that were carried along by the whirlwind began to converge, assuming that the same method would not work.
Just as it was about to take another shape, Hugo, the leader of the knights, raised his voice.
“What are you looking at! Light it up!”
As he screamed at the wizards, a nearby female wizard flicked her finger as if she had come to her senses. It seemed to spark lightly, but it quickly became the whip of a blue flame and wrapped around the black liquid.
The other two wizards poured in their own magic as well.
The forms were different, but it was clear that it was magic using fire. As a consequence of this, the dark mass, which was about to take the form of a gigantic being, dissolved away once more.
As it burned, leaving behind awful sounds and odours, the knights let out a collective sigh. Because it was a flame attached by magic, it did not spread to the sides, but it also did not die out.
The burnt liquid was no longer black, but an eerie red colour. Van stopped Eleanor for a moment and opened the door of the carriage.
“Now… Is it all over?”
Hugo asked, and Van looked at Eleanor. Eleanor was still in Van’s arms. She was a bit surprised, but she thought it was okay because there was no injury.
“I’m all right.”
Van gave Eleanor another hug, this time with a look of relief on his face, and then she turned to gaze at Hugo. Eleanor seemed embarrassed because she was in front of someone else, but Van had his own reason for his behaviour.
Because she was in danger.
Eleanor is what they want.
“If we go to a town or city and the same raid comes, the guards won’t be able to help.”
Hugo felt the same way. What was important in an attack like this one was the presence of wizards. In small towns and villages, there were almost no wizards.
“I’ll get going quickly.”
“The injured people who seem to be falling behind can be put on a carriage and sent to the village.”
At Van’s words, Hugo nodded his head. Van also said this, but he thought that none of his knights would be badly hurt in the attack. Hugo will tell if there is.
In a short time, a wizard fixed the broken part of the carriage. The carriage abruptly turned around and headed in the direction of the capital.
͙*̩̩͙˚̩̥̩̥*̩̩̥͙ ✩ *̩̩̥͙˚̩̥̩̥*̩̩͙‧
Carlisle, who was watching the attack unfold, threw a crystal ball. It was because he had to watch the kissing scene between Eleanor and Van through a crystal ball.
He knew that Eleanor would be guiding Van, but what he saw was not what he expected. Even he has never kissed Eleanor.
Carlisle even felt that he wanted to kill everything around him.
Things shouldn’t have gone that way. Eleanor was his guide, and she had to be his even if he chose another woman to be his guide.
Carlisle spat while grinding his teeth in anger. The wizards, who had just been watching, moved quietly towards the door, and the Great Wizard, who was standing closest, tried to rhyme in them.
The air in the room seemed to rumble at Carlisle’s anger. In response, The Great Wizard ran out of the room before he could even say anything.
The only person left in the room was Lance, his old servant.
“Your Highness, please calm down. You must not use your power……”
Lance, the old servant, got on his knees and begged Carlisle. In response to his anger, the objects in the room were cracking as if they were going to break at any moment.
Carlisle gritted his teeth and tried to forget the scene just now. But the thought that this shouldn’t happen never left his mind.
He had to have Eleanor. She shouldn’t have done this to him.
Whatever he did to Eleanor was because she didn’t trust him!
Carlisle did not regret that he had Eleanor as his fiancé and tried to make Charlotte empress.
Because he became emperor. The emperor used to be a man with a lot of women.
The current emperor, Dael, said that he had only his guide as his wife, but he considered that evidence of his foolishness.
‘A man like me is originally that kind of man. This is a problem you have to accept!’
However, it occurred to him that Eleanor’s relationship with Van was an unforgivable betrayal. He was the emperor once, and he will be the emperor again.
No woman was allowed to cheat on the emperor.
In the case of the guide, he was allowed to have several members of the imperial family as husbands or wives in order to save the lives of the members of the royal family, but that was in the past.
Carlisle won’t let it happen, but no one else knows why. It is possible to have several guides, but opposition is unacceptable.
While he was thinking about revenge, the pressure of weighing down the things in the room subsided. The game wasn’t over yet. He was the one who had destroyed Van before and even captured him.
The strategy has not been successful thus far. It seemed as though all of his plans had been uncovered even before he started. All that was left was a strategy with some risk.
͙*̩̩͙˚̩̥̩̥*̩̩̥͙ ✩ *̩̩̥͙˚̩̥̩̥*̩̩͙‧
In the galloping carriage, Eleanor was checking Van’s. Due to the considerable use of his ability, a lot of filth was accumulated in a short time.
Eleanor understood that he had to use his powers to be guided. He himself has never used his ability properly, so it is impossible to estimate.
He didn’t know how much fear he should have because if he did something wrong, the filth could get worse and he could die.
That’s why Carlisle didn’t use his powers well because of this. Most of the skills Van used to get away from Eleanor in the story were physical abilities.
The ability to use the wind as it is now has rarely been used. It was clear that the filth was the easiest ability to build up among his abilities.
Unsurprisingly, even though he used his abilities under Eleanor’s guidance, his defilement was quite advanced.
‘I’m glad I did my best at guiding last night.’
As planned, it seemed like it would be nice to do the guiding in the carriage. It was even worse because it would be a few hours before the gateway where the magic circle for teleportation would be set up.
However, on the other hand, she felt that her appearance had become ridiculous. The first time she was guiding him in prison, she only had a mind for revenge.
She was just guiding at his fingertips, and he had no intention of doing more.
She guided him after they entered the secret passage, but it didn’t make much of a difference in how he felt from guiding while holding her hand.
But in order to fight against Carlisle, they have to spend the night and imprint…… After she had just been guiding for the fight, she felt like a tool.
How was she different from Carlisle’s fiancée? The fear of doing it won out.
However, Eleanor’s expression was as calm as before.
She had repeatedly promised that it was something she had been prepared for. Anyway, she’s starting to like Van, and Van is showing more feelings than that.
So it’s not something to think bad about. It was necessary.
As she seemed to ponder, Van grabbed Eleanor’s hand as she tried to take off her clothes. Just a few minutes ago, there was an attack, but the next one won’t come right away.
They will also need to get themselves together.
Hugo, the Knight Commander of the Duke’s residence, expected a couple of places to attack. It was in a position to arrive by tomorrow afternoon after tonight.
Van thought there was no need to rush. It’s likely that she is concerned about the limited amount of guidance she can provide at once.
But Van didn’t want her to feel obligated to remain with him in any way.
It was an act of making love, nothing else.
He liked being guided by Eleanor, of course. But above all else, he didn’t want her to get hurt.
“Without guiding…… Can’t we just have sex?”
While she was preparing herself, Eleanor had a fleeting realisation that she had misunderstood what he said.
“What….. What are you talking about? You know what we’re in.”
Carlyle owned a massive wizardry, hiding his power from the emperor. Before he regressed, Van found out about it too late and, after several battles with his forces, was able to destroy it.
But Van’s force also took a lot of damage, and in the last battle, most of the knights died and Van himself was taken prisoner.
Carlisle’s power was at its peak at this time. He doesn’t know how much power they might have absorbed, but they were right to be in a more dangerous situation.
Van rationally knew that it was right to receive Eleanor’s guidance now. But Van still wanted it.
Because he has to work harder on himself. He’d rather do that than hurt Eleanor. Exercising his body to the limit was something he had become accustomed to before regressing.
“I know, but I don’t like it when our relationship is forced. I’d rather feel and touch you than be guided by Eleanor.”
