Seduce the paladin - Chapter 3
If you can’t avoid it, all you have to do is run away. Run away to a place free of all those disgusting things! He pulled out from the bookshelf a collection of myths about the founding of the Mihadas Empire, which he had read when he was a child. Mihadas’ children, regardless of their status, grew up hearing the story of Theresia, the first goddess who created and protected this world instead of fairy tales. Because they were beautiful stories that were more like fairy tales than fairy tales themselves.
On the open bookcase was a picture of the goddess he loved. To create a pure, clean, and sublime world, he cared for Theresia. Cedric was amazed. This was a revelation, and it was destiny. He quickly decided on a career path. I will become a paladin who protects the gods. Although the gods had hidden their reality as the age of myth was over, there were still temples and priests everywhere in the empire, and the members of the royal family were descendants of gods with the same eyes as Theresia. Cedric declared at breakfast the next day. “Mother, I’m going to be a paladin.”
“Cedric, are you crazy?”
“I’m fine, mother. It’s the result of very serious consideration.”
“No, you’re still young. You’ll change your mind soon, Cedric.” His mother, Duke Raphael, was terrified and denied Cedric’s decision. The Mihadas Empire was a strictly matriarchal society. Marriages were rare, except for arranged marriages by the great families, and becoming the “natural father” of a child was possible only when a pregnant woman recognized her husband as the father of a baby.
In fact, it was not at all impossible for a man to become a headmaster or emperor, but he was infinitely disadvantaged compared to a woman who could produce offspring of proven ancestry and was usually pushed back in the line of succession.
After all, even if I had a child, I couldn’t give him a surname, so I had to pass it on to my nephew or colleague.
Moreover, none of Raphael’s sons knew how to match a woman’s heart. Even if they managed to get them married by giving them a lot of dowries, they would often get divorced after eating out only the bloodline with excellent qualities.
It was absurd for a man to declare that he would become a paladin rather than an imperial knight, but Cedric Finn Raphael ended up doing the nonsense. He ran away from home at the age of twelve and joined the Order of the Holy Knights. Promising never to return to the world, Cedric left. It was in order to become the eternal son of Theresia, a pure paladin in white armor, with her never-before-seen hypocrisy and stronger faith. As time passed the boy who knelt in front of the statue weeping, became a twenty-four-year-old young man.
