My troops and I headed for the Marquis Raven territory, which was near the Royal Capital. We rushed to the mansion, but the house was deserted. Even the servants have disappeared.
“He got away…” Patrick mutterings
“Shall we follow?” Mirko replies
“Of course! We’ll get ready and chase him down!” Patrick
In the Royal Castle
“Hey, Sonaris” William
“Yes, dear William?” Sonaris
“Patrick, he’s pretty scary, but he’s also loyal.” William
“Of course! He’s the one and only person I want to be with!” Sonaris
“Father, isn’t that man too terrifying?” Macklin
“I saw his full cruelty today, and yes, it was terrifying. But he’s calm enough to only inflict wounds that can be healed with a potion, he’s extremely loyal to the Royal Family, and he’s good at whatever is asked of him.
He displays tough leadership, but he knows how far to go and doesn’t go farther. There’s also his ability to move undetected by his enemies, that’s pretty handy.
Finally, Sona is deeply in love with him. Although he’s a bit older than you, he’s definitely going to be your brother-in-law, so get used to him.” King
“Can I get used to him? It’s hard divorcing his image from a violent murderer?” Macklin
“Yeah, that was horrifying…” King
“Quick, draw me a hot bath and a change of clothes!” Third Queen
“Today’s underwear was my favorite, damn!” Noble Lady
“Hold your horses! We’re safe here for the moment!” Maid
“So, he’s really gone? Not going to reappear in a second?” Noble Lady
“What’s with that black hair guy? I feel like I’d die from fright if he was angry at me.” Maid
“Isn’t that black hair guy the fiancée of Her Highness Sonaris?” Noble Lady
“My nephew is tremendous, he lives up to his title of Grim Reaper!” Trolla
“It seems like he was pretty gentle during training, wasn’t he? If he was training us with that sort of atmosphere, all the trainees would have deserted.” Royal Guard Soldier
“Now, we’re going to be busy for the near future! For the time being, I need a report on the current state of the castle! William, Macklin, let’s observe personally! Royal Guard, follow us!” King
The King motions to his guards as the form ranks and moves out.
“I’m not overly bothered, but this room stinks!” Sonaris says to herself
