When My Enemies Began to Regret Chapter 6 - 2. I’m Part of the Advance Team. (3)

Author: alyalia

“Here we go, it’s around here.”

 

Thus, they successfully escaped the mansion and soon reached the outskirts of the town. In the meantime, the sun was shining brightly, but the stone path under the bridge was still dark because of the sparse sunlight from the shade of a tree on a nearby cliff.

 

“I will search for this place. Can you please search over there?”

 

“Lady said the lost item was a ring with a red ruby on it, right?”

 

Fanora looked straight ahead. To be precise, she pretended to be looking for things and stood up meaninglessly for a while.

 

The weather is nice.

 

About half an hour later, when the apprentice knight named Shuteri began to look bored with his work, Fanora took the next step.

 

“I don’t think it’s around here. Let’s go a little further over there.”

 

“Ah, yes…”

 

“But since it’s my item, it may not look familiar to the knight’s eyes. I’m thankful that you brought me here… You can just rest on that rock and be vigilant if there are any strange people.”

 

“I don’t think there will be people like that. I will escort Lady so that not even a strand of your hair gets hurt.”

 

She pretended to be considerate to him and excluded him from finding it. By the time he sat on a rock, he pulled out a cigarette and idled around. Finally, Fanora carefully found the place of ‘Io’ that she remembered.

 

In order to betray the Kingdom, the last owner, the slave, entrusted the holy relic to his friend, the bard, who while carrying Io across the border, he was in danger of being trampled in the Celsius territory.

 

Io’s approximate movement was already in her memory. That was because the person who discovered it in the past boasted about it dozens of times.  She couldn’t believe that the location of the holy relic that various Kingdoms wanted to win by fighting in the war was none other than this territory. 

 

In the past, Count Celsius, who realized this too late, shed tears of blood and regretted it. Her father insisted that they searched his territory on their own and demanded a share because the holy relic was in his territory, but it was not accepted. Because it was the King who made the search team for the holy relic.

 

I couldn’t trust everything the knight said, but let’s try anyway. Of course, she didn’t have any greed for holy relics at that time, so even if she heard that someone else had taken the holy relic that was in front of me. According to his words, it must be between these cliffs.

 

After a while, she stopped at a spot. 

 

“…!”

 

In the corner of the cliff, there was a sharp and narrow gap. It was simply a stone-cut pattern for ordinary people, but it was easy for her to notice the whereabouts of Io.

 

He said he found the holy relic under a pile of stones near here. As soon as she found this gap, she frantically searched around. Unlike pretending to be looking for a ring, she touched all kinds of stones with her toes, being careful not to be caught by the knight she brought.

 

“!”

 

And in a little bit. Unlike the light surrounding pebbles, she found a large stone beak that didn’t even move when she kicked it.

 

‘…’

 

This was probably what it feels like to steal things. Turning behind, she saw Shuteri gathering pebbles around him and stacking them like a tower. Seeing that, she quietly leaned down and began to scrape around the stone beak that was not moving.

 

“…”

 

Small and large grains of dirt dug between the fingernails of her left hand, and her hands gradually became dirty, but she continued to dig nearby.

 

“Haa, I’m bored to death. I think it’s taking too long…”

 

And a few minutes later, Shuteri knocked down the small stone tower he had been building. Eventually, the sleepy-faced knights looked back toward Fanora.

 

“Hmm? What are you doing, Lady?”

 

“Ah, that’s…”

 

Fanora turned her head back to his call. Fortunately, it was quicker to fill the soil she had dug up than to turn around.

 

“…I’ve been searching for too long, and my legs hurt, so I rested for a while.”

 

“Don’t push yourself too hard. It’s not like Madam will kill Lady just because of one ring.”

 

Thump. Thump. She pretended to look around further, hiding my still beating heartbeat. The reason why her heart was jumping right now was not that she was afraid to be caught doing something suspicious.

 

“I-I found the ring! That’s really a relief. I won’t be scolded by my mother anymore!”

 

Fanora took the dirty red ring she had prepared in advance out of her arms and glistened her eyes to him. I found it. It was because of the ‘blue’ thing that she had just found.

* * *

 

Fanora went to bed early the day before, perhaps because she was tired from going outside. The floating words on the first day she had seen had some kind of condition to appear, and when the morning came, no magic was seen, so she started her day smoothly.

 

It was more beautiful than I thought. She got up from her bed and checked the first treasure she had acquired. Io’s appearance was a thin right with jewels resembling the tail feathers of a peacock. 

 

Containing the God fragments, she could sense that it was a holy relic as soon as she saw the ring. In particular, it was strange that she couldn’t feel any weight when she held it in her hand.

 

It’s done. It was confirmed that owning it would really increase strength, and since she returned to the mansion safely, her plan was a success.

 

With this, Seir… Then she could start the second revenge that she has been looking forward to. But even if she already acquired the holy relic, there was still a problem left. I’ll turn the body of that filthy thing upside down!

 

It was the matter of storing the holy relic. However, now that time has passed since she got the holy relic, this part has already been resolved. But she was now lying in bed like a sick person.

 

“Lady Fanora, this is your meal.”

 

“Yes.”

 

She didn’t have a severe illness. Unlike her ambition to peel off her servant and kill her immediately, it was her who got hurt first. 

 

“By the way, Lady Fanora, how are you going to get through the social world with a clumsy attitude? You shouldn’t spill your tea on the clothes of precious young ladies from other houses.”

 

She pondered how to store the holy relic and eventually found a place to hide it. In her room? It’s dangerous because her room could be borrowed at any time. Garden soil? That’s too absurd. The space in this mansion was like hell for her. So she buried the holy relic in a safer location.

 

“If your wound is itchy, never scratch it. You will feel sorry for me having to change the bloody sheet!”

 

It was in her own body.

 

“…”

 

FanoraI stabbed her body to create a suitable gap and buried Io, the holy relic deep in her wound. In this mansion, she was treated like a ghost. Whether she stole medicine and tools from the doctor’s room or sewed up her wound by herself, no one cared.

 

“Haa, anyway, only the amount of laundry will increase.”

 

Even when Seir, her exclusive maid, who helped her to change her clothes, found out about her wound, it was enough for Fanora to say, “I fell while chasing a butterfly.” Therefore, she only had to wait for the wound to heal.

 

Just because Io is in the form of a ring, it didn’t mean that I had to wear it on my finger to use its power. Even if something goes wrong with my body, it can’t be helped. For her, it was the best cover-up. At the same time, it was not crazy to bury a ring inside one’s body to hide its whereabouts.

 

“What? Why are you laughing? There’s nothing funny.”

 

As such, the driving strength behind the current her was an endless sense of revenge and a little bit of frustration. She laughed at the foreign thing she felt in the affected area as the pain subsided by the medicine.

 

“Because the weather is nice today.”

 

As Fanora soon stopped her laughter and calmed down, Seir shook her head several times. But the time for the last meal for today was over. It was time to go to sleep, so Seir came to her with a comb because she was going to do her evening grooming.

 

“Look at this and this. Why is Lady hair really getting tangled without combing it only for a day? I’m afraid that you won’t be able to get married if you don’t dress up even a little bit.”

 

Soon the servant made her sit on the chair and began to comb. On the surface, it was very calm, and nothing was strange about Fanora’s exclusive maid.

 

“…”

 

However, Fanorar felt the pain of her scalp being ripped apart every time Seir combed her long hair. It was because Seir was giving strength as if pulling out her hair on purpose rather than untangled it softly.

 

“It would have been nice if Lady was born blonde~ If Lady had blonde hair, you would have lived like a real lady! Your eyes and hair are all black, right?”

 

“…”

 

“Who do you look like?”

 

Shrug, shrug. Eerie sound rang out as her hair was tangled and combed with force.

 

“…”

 

It was worth frowning because it hurt. But Fanora was silent with a face contemplating something.

 

* * *

 It was a week after she returned to her past with her 15-year-old body. 

 

<Chapter 2

 

1# Ballroom Terrace (Night)

 

Eyal declared Vasago officially became the successor of the Guelder family. The King held a ball to celebrate that fact, but Vasago, who received the invitation, looked skeptical. After finishing the first dance at the ball, Vasago moved to the terrace.

 

Vasago: I’m really miserable. My cousin couldn’t move at the words of the King, and I had to act as a puppet at the ball that I didn’t like because of the letter from the King. How long will I have to spend these humiliating days?

 

Vasago: I will make a different choice from my predecessor.

 

Maid: Princess, are you here?

 

Vasago: Looks like my father is calling for me. I should go now. 

 

#2 Ballroom (Night)

 

Vasago and Eyal were talking near the window.

 

Nobleman 1: Look. Isn’t that woman the daughter of Duke Guelder?

 

Nobleman 2: That’s right. As the rumors say, her green hair is truly beautiful.

 

Nobleman 1: How could a dress made of blue fabric look so attractive? When I return to my estate, I will have to buy a dress like that for my wife. All the women in this Kingdom made a fuss that they would wear the same thing as what Vasago wore!

 

The nobles praised her with their mouths wide open.>

 

When the midnight bell rang in the hallway, the floating text came in front of Fanora’s eyes again.

 

“Gasp!”

 

It was the second time Fanora had experienced this after returning back to this period.vIt appears again at 12 o’clock at night. She realized two conditions when she saw the magic that only appeared today after several days had passed. It only appeared at midnight. And only on the first day of the week?

 

This was because it appeared two times at 12 o’clock on the first day of the week. In addition, she noticed that the contents of chapter 1 of ‘Dangerous Love’ last time and the text that appeared this time continued.

 

The last thing I saw was the story of Vasago when she heard the news that her cousin couldn’t come for her birthday. This time, the emotional line continued, expressing her hostility toward the King.

 

However, there was nothing much important in the new chapter. The dress worn by Vasago, who participated in the ball, was so beautiful that the nobles highly praised it.

 

“…”

 

In the past, reading was Fanora’s hobby. She read theology, science, and astronomy, as well as novels scribbled by commoners about fairy tales. So, looking at the writing, she was able to distinguish genres.

 

“This is not a script. A play with the background that changes so often cannot be made into a stage.”

 

It took the form of a script on the outside, but it wasn’t a script. As she knew, there was only one type of writing.

 

“Then, this is a ‘fictional novel’ made to read for fun.”

 

What she saw in front of her at 12 o’clock was none other than a novel in which a person named Vasago is the main character. Wasn’t the title Dangerous Love? It’s not even a title for a classic romance novel.

 

The glowing text that appeared suddenly was a novel that borrowed Vasago’s name. In addition, the contents of that novel was never unreasonable.
