Everyone was obsessed with me after I became the Youngest Princess Favourite - Chapter 23 Part 1
“I won’t ask you in detail what happened.”
I looked up at the Duchess, who held my hand tightly.
As usual, the Duchess’ expression seemed very angry, but she looked sad nonetheless, so I couldn’t say anything.
“But I want to scold you for acting so recklessly.”
“You won’t do that again, will you?”
I had no choice but to nod my head at her gentle but resolute voice. But this was the best way I’ve ever learned in my life.
So I felt sorry for the Duchess, but at the same time, I felt lighter. To be honest, I still had ambivalent feelings about the Duke of Elrad.
In my previous life, I roamed around the streets because of the Duke of Elrad and managed to infiltrate his house and die.
However, since I received grace in this life, I felt uncomfortable all the time.
‘And it was about Jack and Diana, so I couldn’t just turn a blind eye.’
Above all, I knew the story of Count Valerie.
In the past, I was picked up by my master when I was 10 years old, and I learned everything from letters and numbers to hide and combat skills, as well as various magic spells to avoid being abandoned.
In particular, when I was learning about letters, I read whatever I wanted, reading newspapers in the guild.
Then I found out by chance.
The works of Count Valerie, who deceived the Duke of Elrad known as a great noble.
More precisely, it was discovered that Count Valerie, a long-time vassal of the Duke, was extorting money from the Knights’ budget through Sid Valerie, the commander of the Knights of Rexion, and was brought to trial.
The incident became even more known because Sid Valerie was trusted by the Duke of Elrad, and Count Valerie was the head of the Senate.
A diamond was found in the Perion mine, which Count Valerie had bought with the stolen budget, and the Duke of Elrad had to continue the trial with great difficulty.
They’re really vicious people after making money out of other people’s pockets, and I was furious throughout reading the Guild’s report.
It will be revealed in the next two years, but since it was discovered so early, the Duke will be able to quickly find evidence of embezzlement without going to trial and avoid a difficult situation.
‘Yes, I did a great job.’
Although I have decided to live freely this life without engaging in a deep relationship with anyone, this can pay off my debts and, above all, it is the right thing to do.
Just as I did my best for the Master who let me join the guild, I also had to repay the kindness of Diana and the Duke, who treated me nicely in every way.
I don’t know when I’ll be leaving, but until then, it was the time when I decided to do my best.
“Madam? How did you get here?”
I thought, of course, that the Duchess would take me to a doctor. But unexpectedly, the place where we arrived as the Duchess held my hand was a tower where the wizards of the Duke gathered to study.
Embarrassed by the sudden appearance of the Duchess, the wizards hurriedly prepared a place to sit.
I rolled my eyes around and looked inside the tower. Since the existence of wizards itself was rare, so it was the first time in my life to come to the place where they stayed.
The thick books stacked on the floor and the desk and the strange-looking glass bottles emitting smoke were also interesting, but the wizards themselves were the ones that caught my attention the most.
I can do simple magic, but my heart pounded for some reason when I saw the official wizard.
“I’m here for this child. I need to get her treated right away, so can you call Terin?”
“The chief wizard?”
When the Duchess looked at me and said, she gave the puzzled look of the bewildered wizards.
As they did, I wondered why the Duchess wanted to find a wizard rather than a doctor.
‘A wound like this can be treated lightly without even using healing magic.’
But I kept my mouth shut as I looked at the Duchess, who stared at my wounds with a more painful gaze than I did.
Effortlessly avoiding her gaze, I found the wizards screaming as they climbed the stairs looking for a man named ‘Terin’.
‘Hmm… Whoops, I thought wizards use teleport and move or contact him with an artifact.’
Something a little different from what I had imagined, and somehow the excitement of meeting the wizards subsided.
And after a while, a man appeared with his long violet hair fluttering.
“Oh, you’re finally here! My disciple!”
