Chapter 90 - Unexpected Confession
Contrary to Diana’s words, nothing happened to Leonard. We only received the people’s confused gazes as I hurried back with the knights.
Diana must have been mistaken about something.
It was the first ball held after Leonard ascended to the throne, so it was a little chaotic. At that time, Isaac was about to step down. If that wasn’t the case, it would have been a disaster. I was fed up just looking at that face of his now. It was terrible that I had to see that face again at the conference…
…No, that’s not what’s important now.
In fact, my head was about to explode because of what Enoch said earlier. I thought things had been organized to a certain extent, but what was this all of a sudden?
All of sudden, there’s an object from the era when magic existed.
Didn’t everything related to magic disappear 300 years ago? That was why Leonard couldn’t lift the curse until he met Celia.
Was there a hidden story that wasn’t mentioned in the original novel?
In this terrible situation, I almost cursed without realizing it. Let’s just assume that there might have been a hidden story in the original novel.
<Crucia> was a novel in first-person perspective in which Leonard was the main character. If it was something Leonard didn’t know about, it might have been omitted. I understood everything up until that point. What I really couldn’t stand was…
Why, out of all the people, was Duke Thepherone holding a clue to such an important item?
Of course, it was Enoch who brought up this topic, but I didn’t think that Enoch needed that item.
That’s a given.
If Enoch was looking for the item in order to use it himself, he wouldn’t have so little information about it.
Was there anyone in the world who didn’t even know what they were looking for? It would be understandable if he was trying to stop Isaac from doing something.
It looks like Isaac hasn’t found the item yet.
That was why Enoch was running around like that. It was a relief.
If Isaac had found that item…
I trembled at the terrible imagination. I didn’t know what Isaac was looking for, but I was certain that it was something bad. Also, it was obvious he was going to do something with it. It was either getting rid of me or Leonard.
What the hell was Isaac looking for? Why didn’t he tell Enoch, whom he loved so much? My mind became complicated due to the aspect of magic that appeared out of nowhere. I thought all I had to do was avoid the dead ending, but now I had to pay attention to this too?
Oh my God. It was none other than magic…
I thought I wouldn’t have to think about magic in this world.
That should’ve been the case since Celia was the only one who could use magic. We still had 30 years before Celia appeared in front of Leonard.
She’s not even born yet, so it’s completely out of the question.
Sigh, I didn’t I would be pondering about magic for anything other than lifting Leonard’s curse…
No, wait a second.
Is it perhaps related to Leonard’s curse?
For a moment, I got goosebumps and raised my hand to rub my arms. Why didn’t I think of it right away?
Come to think of it, Leonard’s curse was the most important incident related to magic in the original novel.
However, it wasn’t mentioned in the original novel that Isaac did something like this though? Was it omitted because it was a failed incident that was way before the original novel started?
If that wasn’t the case…
I looked up for a moment as I heard the low voice that came from above my head. I moved my eyes a little higher and saw Leonard staring my way. Leonard, who made eye contact with me, strode up to me. Even while I was looking at him, the thoughts I had been thinking about were still filled in my mind.
Did an incident not described in the original novel happen?
Was it because I didn’t want to die? Was it because an extra chose to be next to the male protagonist?
It was a terrible assumption just at the thought of it, but it was a possible assumption. No, it was definitely because of me.
It’s something I already expected.
It would be strange if the story didn’t change when there was someone who shouldn’t have existed roaming around. It was something I had been prepared for since I held on to Leonard when he was leaving the Amelio House.
…I was sure of it. Why were my hands shaking and my heart beating so hard?
“Is there something on your mind?”
Leonard asked with a worried face, wondering why I was acting weird and looking up at him silently. I answered him as casually as I could.
Let’s calm down. I still didn’t know exactly what was going on. There was nothing to be anxious about yet.
“Why do you ask that?”
“You’ve been making a very serious expression since a while ago. I was wondering if something was wrong.”
When I was about to talk about the Countess’ diary along with what I spoke to Enoch about, I paused for a moment. It was because an unknown anxiety crossed my mind.
Is it the right thing to do to tell Leonard about the diary?
I didn’t even know what was written in the diary. It was difficult to give him a response, but I didn’t ponder about it for long.
“It’s nothing. There’s a nobles’ conference in a few days, isn’t it? I was just thinking about something for a while because of that.”
Let’s not tell him for now. I was more anxious about the contents of the diary than the guilt of not telling Leonard the truth.
