Everyone was obsessed with me after I became the Youngest Princess Favourite - Chapter 19 Part 2
For some reason, it felt like I was entangled from the first meeting. I’m sure they’ll solve it on their own.
As I slowly turned around to examine Jack’s face.
“Is it unfair?”
One went, and another appeared. He, too, was as tall as Taze, perhaps a knight.
I came out to meet Jack, and what’s going on?
It must have been that Jack in his previous life also didn’t just walk on the flowery road while shaking her head inwardly, the man’s sarcastic remarks continued.
“But there’s nothing wrong about it, right? I have no choice but to move on because it’s His Excellency’s will, with only a few days of probation because even cutting off one of your limbs won’t be enough. You need to be decent even if you don’t have any sense of shame.”
“…Do you really think so?”
“Indeed, I did not perform my duties properly, but the vice-captain must not be so proud either.”
The man who grabbed Taze’s collar said, biting his lips. “In the first place, this is Duke of Elrad, the Knights of Rexion! This is not a place for commoners like you to set foot.”
“Stop it. You’re in front of the children.”
Tease lowered his voice, conscious of us.
But the man began to mock more obnoxiously.
“I was so dumbfounded. It’s not like you’re going anywhere trying to come clean.”
Then he shoved Taze roughly and strode up to us.
While I instinctively flinched, Jack stood in front of me.
The man said, pushing Jack’s forehead with his finger.
“Don’t dream that you can become a knight just because you’re lucky enough to join the Rexion Knights. You are meant to be a lifelong servant.”
Taze urgently tried to stop him, but he couldn’t carelessly touch the man because his rank in the Knights was clear. Instead, he pushed Jack and me behind him, and the man turned around with a mean laugh.
The haughty back of the knight made me boil with displeasure and anger.
To be honest, what the man said towards commoners was simpler than the dagger I heard when I lived as a beggar, so there was no particular blow.
I was just upset that I didn’t know why Jack had to be treated and despised with contempt for such a thing.
Contrary to his curse words, I know better than anyone that Jack will become a famous knight on the continent in the future.
But the anger was fleeting.
Is it because I’ve been trained in life as an informant?
Listening to the conversation between the man and Taze, I sensed that there was something about them.
“Wha— what? Then it’s not that you couldn’t protect Dana, no, the young lady!”
Afterward, I persistently fought for Taze, allowing the two of them to divulge their hidden secrets.
The whole story of the incident was shocking.
“I can’t believe a vice-captain of the Rexion Knights told such a lie!”
Taze, who had naively resigned from the escort post on the order of the vice-captain, said that it was only after Diana’s disappearance that he realized that he had been deceived.
At that time, Jack, who had been listening to the situation before, suddenly asked, “Didn’t you really make a mistake?”
He seemed to suspect that he was mishearing and shifting the blame.
I can’t believe he’s talking to him like that, he’s going to be your adoptive father, Jack!
Clicking my tongue inwardly, Taze said firmly, “I swear not. The Vice Captain made me… I don’t want to say this to you young children.”
He must have been very frustrated during that time, so he grabbed us and started complaining.
“I entered the war as a mercenary, and by chance, I caught the Duke’s eye.”
More precisely, it started when Taze noticed the enemy’s trap in a battle.
I already knew how he got into the Knights of Rexion from the stories of the knights who admire him, so I expected that the vice commander, who was proud to be an aide to the Duke of Elrad, must have been deeply offended in the process.
Because I was used to being envied and hated like that.
“Joining the Knights of Rexion was an extraordinary opportunity for me. Becoming a knight has been my long-time dream and my father’s dream as well.”
In the middle of the conversation, Taze bit his lip several times as if trying to hold back his tears.
It was a little embarrassing for a grown man to tear up, but Jack was listening without blinking as if he was greatly impressed.
“But these days, I’m starting to wonder why I have to keep trying. As the vice-captain says, I’m also thinking that I’m not worthy of an honorable knight…”
And listening to Taze’s complaints, I couldn’t stand it anymore and shouted, “Mister, are you a fool? It’s not you who doesn’t suit the knight, it’s the vice-captain, the bully!”
