Chapter 127.2 : Journey Toward Restoration Part 4
… … …
Cristina is heaving a sigh at the end of battle in which she can’t feel a slight sense of danger at all.
Rio’s going around collecting magic stones while finishing off the rest of the orcs that barely keep their life.
Christina-tachi is approaching Rio after being urged by Vanessa.
Lucci who saw all of those events from start till finish was looking at Rio with a sharp glint in his eyes.
◇ ◇ ◇
Evening of the same day, in a certain small town of earl Claire territory.
Reis met with Ven in a certain bar that’s filled with noise.
「Thank you for your hard work, Ven. By the way, Arein aside, why can’t i see Lucci too………….」
Reis is asking for the whereabouts of everyone who is currently not in this place while saying his gratitude for the result of Ven’s work.
「Since my side is almost finished with information gathering, Lucci is coming to help Arein」
「I see. In that case, let me hear your story first」
「Yes, first is regarding the movement of Bertram’s kingdom army during their stay at Creia――」
Ven reported the information about the event that happened in Creia to Reis.
「Huhm, it doesn’t seems to be a mistake. They’re definitely looking for the 1st princess of Bertram kingdom」
Ven is startled when he heard Reis muttering so after he heard the report.
「The one they were looking for was such a big shot. That makes sense」
「Yeah, Bertram royal castle has become quite restless after all. But, the search keeps going on. That means the kingdom’s army has yet to find the princess. I see, that makes sense」
Reis who understands the situation is showing an eerie smile.
「Now I know why the search was so focused on the north and east route. The first princesses aim is to meet with the second princess. And the kingdom’s army has yet to find her」
Ven is speaking with a enlightened expression.
In case she’s heading toward marquis Rodan’s territory from earl Claire territory, the logical choice is to go by the north or the east highway that is stretching from Creia.
Though it doesn’t mean they can’t go to there from south route, it might take twice the amount of time needed for the previous two routes.
「I guess that’s the opinion of the first princess and the kingdom army. …………. And yet, they never think that the commander is the kind of man who went as far as almost abandoning the south route」
Charles figure appearing in Reis’s mind.
He have some grasp of Charles’s personality due to his job as the diplomat of Proxia empire. Despite having some ability himself, he’ll become a narrow minded person due to his pride and jealousy.
（If in worst case, the matter of disaffection isn’t a smart move to let princess Christina to go after princess Flora if we reveal the Regalia in the current situation）
Reis is squinting his eyes.
「………… I’m sure that there was a raid toward the north gate, and if I’m not wrong it’s in the night before our arrival right? 」
Reis is pondering for awhile and then asked another question.
Ven is nodding at him after comparing Reis’s question with the result of his investigation.
「As far as I know, the rogue who said that person’s name raided the south gate at the same time right. We need to make an even thorough investigation under the premise that it has something to do with princess Christina’s escape. Good grief」
Reis heaved a sigh. Ven is smiling wryly in seeing that.
「Then, what should I do? 」
「You’ll to continue monitoring the kingdom army that is stationed in Creia. I’ll send a new instruction to Arein」
Ven is replying with a respectful manner.
「That’s all, we’ll be busy after this after all」
Reis went to leave the bar after saying those words.
（It seems I have to deal with princess Flora who is currently at a separated place as an insurance. I hope to cause some sort of incident but the guard around her should be strengthened due to the recent incident. Well, what should I do then…………）
Reis is walking toward outside of the rampart while pondering about such a dangerous idea.
And then after he entered the forest outside of the city and making sure that no one is around, his body floated and then flew toward the south-southeast.
