Several hours after that.
I was currently sitting in a carriage heading to Transcell. It differed from when I got on the carriage to Rycalion in that a different person was sitting on the other side instead of Dame Joan.
In the suffocating silence, I rolled my eyes for nothing.
When I tried to relax comfortably, I couldn’t because of the bursting presence of the person sitting on the other side.
‘Besides……Isn’t he staring at me?’
I cast a sidelong glance and was surprised to see Ian’s blue eyes.
And he was staring at me!
Ian’s eyes were deep when he looked at me with crossed arms.
I cleared my throat.
I can’t live like this because it’s suffocating. Let me say something.
“Have you dealt with all the remains of Rycallion’s Beast?”
“It’s almost finished. The latter group will take care of the remaining small fry.”
There was silence once more between us.
‘This is driving me crazy. I’d prefer to sleep. But why are you staring at me so intently?’
Why are you staring at me like you’re testing me?
Then I tried to say something again.
“Ehem. Anyway, you were amazing. How did you manage to handle King Incubus so well? He was a monster who slaughtered everyone, including the Holy Knights.”
“I can’t believe you’re doing all of this by yourself…… Sir Ian, you are truly a gifted person endowed by God.”
Ian continued to stare at me.
He raised one corner of his mouth after a while.
“Do you think so?”
I was lost for a moment at his cold smirk.
Did I say something wrong?
‘No. I’m just flattering him.’
It was really unfair to say that you had to be so self-conscious while flattering him.
“From now on, it’s better not to use your foreknowledge as much as possible.”
The unexpected remark made me blink confusedly.
“Please do not put anything into words, even if it comes to mind.”
“Have you ever felt like you were losing your strength every time you foresaw?”
“Yes? That’s something I’ve never felt before…….”
I mumbled my words vaguely.
I remember seeing somewhere that saintesses should recharge their power before using it.
“Ah, ehem ehem. Actually, I’m feeling a little overwhelmed. But, if I don’t foresee it, who will believe that I am a Saintess?”
“It doesn’t matter whether they believe you or not.”
Ian gently furrowed his brows.
“You are my wife. Doubting you is the same as doubting me, so even if some people do not believe you, they will keep their mouths shut.”
“I-It certainly is.”
I still didn’t understand.
Why are you suddenly telling me not to foresaw?
Instead, I was concerned that Ian would question my sincerity and inquire as to why I didn’t do much foresight, so these words struck me as unusual.
‘By any chance, this. Is it because of the emperor?’
Suddenly, such a hypothesis came to mind.
The current emperor’s wife was also a saintess.
Lorelai Harnen. The saintess of a tremendous healing power that nullifies the wounds inflicted.
Having her as an empress certainly helped Rashid’s position.
In other words, if I had used my power wisely as Ian’s wife, Ian’s position could strengthen.
‘If that happens, Rashid, who is united in his inferiority complex towards her younger brother, will keep him in check.’
I nodded my head slowly.
“I understand, I’ll keep that in mind. Do not worry. I will certainly be Ian’s incompetent wife!”
Ian raised one eyebrow.
Didn’t my resolution get delivered properly? I said one more time as if I were determined.
“I will try so that all I can do is eat, sleep, and play. I can do it well. Since I was little, I have dreamed of being a faithful Hanryang!”
Ian rubbed his forehead as if he had heard some strange words.
“I understand you like to play a lot. Do I just have to cheer you up?”
“It’s okay. I can do it well without your support!”
Ian looked at me intently.
As if seeing a strange creature.
‘What else did I say wrong?’
What did I do wrong this time again?
I rummaged through my bag, unable to hold his gaze.
Inside, the bag was full of various kinds of bread and fruits wrapped by Aunt Delphine and the villagers of Rycalion.
I tried to ignore Ian’s presence as I chewed them.
The journey to Transcell appeared to be more difficult than expected.
We successfully passed the Mana Stone to the Magic Tower when Ian and I arrived at Transcell.
They all had very serious expressions on their faces when I told them about the blood bruises that appeared on Alicia’s body after she had been in contact with the Holy Manastone for a long time.
He had to have considered the symptom of excessive mana absorption in the bloodstream.
I expressed my heartfelt condolences to the wizards within.
Once the identity of the Holy Mana Stone was revealed, the wizards of this tower would have to focus on research without even being able to sleep for a while.
Not knowing their future, the magicians in the tower send us off happily.
As it got dark, I went onto Transcell Street and looked up at the sky.
Now that the Holy Mana Stone has been handed over, there is only one thing left to do in Transcell.
‘Find the male lead.’
Those with a lot of money and the ability to move quickly would have fled to a location far away from Rycalion, but Elliot, the male lead, could not do so.
Elliot must be alive somewhere in this city.
Ian was my favourite character in 『The Saintess Doesn’t Know About Love』, but of course, I like the main lead couple too.
The male protagonist Elliot’s growth and development story was particularly moving.
My heart raced at the thought the person would be not far away.
‘The question is, how do I find him?’
I slowly glanced at Ian.
I wanted to ask the guild for assistance and information about him, but it was impossible because this person was beside me.
This time, he will be asking me what my plan is.
In the midst of chatting and contemplating, we entered a luxurious street.
“It feels different from the distance.”
Looking around, this seemed to be a street where only luxury accommodations were gathered.
As I watched the neat buildings as if to appreciate them, I tilted my head at some point.
The inn, where my eyes stopped, had a sign that read ‘Whiskers’.
‘Wait a minute. Whiskers?’
Why does that strange shop’s name feel so familiar?
‘Whiskers’, the best luxury accommodation in Transcell.
The owner of this place is a very kind, and he used to give away leftover food to orphans on the street for free.
And Elliott, the male lead, was also one of the beneficiaries.
Anyway, our group decided to leave for the capital again after staying overnight in Transcell.
It was better for me to stay at a place with a connection to the male lead.
“Hmm, Sir Ian.”
I quickly returned Ian’s stare.
“How about we spend the night there? It looks very sophisticated. The smell of the food is also very good. Wow, that smells really good.”
Acting like I was reading a Korean book came out of the hasty excuse.
I struggled to keep acting despite my shame, sniffing the aroma of food.
Ian looked at me curiously.
“Are you still hungry after eating that much food in the carriage?”
“What. In some cultures, having a good appetite is considered a virtue.”
I kept eating in the carriage because it was awkward to look at you!
I couldn’t shout like that, so I’ll have to wait for that man’s patience.
“Haha. I think it’s because I’m still growing.”
“That’s great. You can go and eat.”
Ian pointed to the front door of ‘Whiskers’.
“This is where we are staying today.”
…… Have you been here before?
‘Tell me in advance……!’
With a huge sense of listlessness, I entered the ‘Whiskers.’
It’s embarrassing to say nonsense to Ian, but staying at the place mentioned in the original story is nice. Right. Let us hope so.
“Oh, hello there. Welcome!”
As soon as I walked into the inn, a man who appeared to be the owner appeared.
‘Oh, it’s him.’
The benefactor of the male lead.
As described in the original, the owner was a very kind-hearted uncle.
The Holy Knights who had arrived were unwinding in the first-floor restaurant.
“The Commander is here!”
The chivalrous knights who discovered us rose quickly and formed courtesy.
The knights sat back as soon as Ian beckoned as if he was bothered. The owner was taken aback by the figure.
“We have prepared the best room for you. Please come here.”
We were guided by the owner, who became even more friendly.
When I reached the top floor, I was speechless for a brief moment.
This is it. This is our inn’s best room.”
Of course, the room the owner showed us had only one bed.
“You can bring in the orchestra at night if you want. It’s going to be a very romantic night.”
The owner whispered with a happy face.
“Then please have a good time.”
Leaving those words behind, the owner quickly left the room.
For a brief moment, we were both silent.
With a puzzled expression on my face, I looked around the room.
Rose petals were scattered across the bed, and to my surprise, there were heart-shaped candles on the floor.
“Owner……You’re very excited. Haha.”
“Go wash first.”
“Eh, cough, pardon?”
Unbeknownst to me, I had overheard the words that embarrassed me.
Ian’s face was stiff as he looked at me.
“Are you not going to wash up and go to sleep?”
“Oh, um, hmm. I have to wash. Then I’ll go wash first.”
Damn it, I’ve been overwhelmed with my consciousness.
