“Now, are you sure you’re the one responsible for the abduction of the crown prince? Cain Elgrandark.”
Standing behind Cain and Arundilano, the vice commander Fabian Velfavia asked with a stern face.
Ilvalino, who was being held by his side, struggled to get out of his arms, but Fabian did not even budge. He is a vice commander of the King’s guard after all.
“…Vice captain. Why are you here?”
I came here using a hidden passageway, and I’m sure no one saw us enter the hidden passageway. If the maids had noticed that the two were not in the courtyard, it would have taken more time for them to communicate with their superiors, such as the head maid, the guards, and the knights. The castle is large to the point that the queen complained that she wanted to move around in a carriage.
“You two were feeling a little nervous during the training. I can always tell when someone is being devious due to my job.”
“That’s not a good description of why you know where we went…”
Cain stood between Fabian and Arundilano.
Fabian probably doesn’t really think that Cain tried to kidnap Arundilano. But he was sure that he would be scolded for trying to get out.
He didn’t want to end up being scolded for a prank that Arundilano was trying to carry out in order to show his mother a good point and get her approval.
He tried to think of a way to let Arundilano go and get away with just the crime of “Cain wandering around the castle without permission,” but he was too impatient to come up with a good idea. At any rate, Cain backed away little by little, hoping to get Arundilano out of there.
“I thought you two might be up to something, so I was patrolling, and I saw a boy I recognized, and I tried to talk to him, but he ran away. I grabbed him and waited here.”
“Master Cain…I’m sorry…”
Ilvalino apologized with a pathetic look on his face while Fabian held him.
Cain nodded to Ilvalino and then turned to Fabian again.
“‘Please give me back Ilvalino. He’s just here to pick me up. It sure is not a crime to walk in front of the castle entrance,” Cain said.
“If you weren’t trying to kidnap him, what were you trying to do? If you tell me I’ll let him go. He’s a hostage for now,” Fabian said.
It was as if Fabian was the villain.
Cain sulked and sighed. Suppose the hidden passageway has not yet been exposed, so they might still have a chance to start over.
The only thing he can do is to give him a convenient explanation and ask him to let the situation go. We’ll have to give up on going to the orphanage today and try to talk Arundilano out of getting scolded by his parents. Cain thinks that he deserves to be scolded.
As long as he is not separated from Dianna, everything else is trivial.
“I wanted to give His Royal Highness Prince Arundilano a chance to play with children his own age. I’ve ruined the opportunity Her Royal Highness had set for him so…”
“You mean outside the castle?”
“I don’t know when I’ll be able to get together with the same people and on the same scale as the occasion I destroyed, and it’s beyond my power. I wanted to introduce Al to some of my friends.”
“Dediny-san is… well, she’s too old for His Highness. I foolishly thought that I would like him to first feel that it is fun to be around the same age and have similar sensibilities and interests.”
“Oh. I see.”
Fabian had a difficult look on his face the whole time, but when I mentioned Dediny-san’s name, he suddenly looked convinced.
Then he lowered Ilvalino to the ground and approached him in two steps, pushing Cain away and kneeling in front of Arundilano.
“Your Royal Highness. I checked afterward and found out that Madame Dediny is married, with three children. Please give up.”[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
Fabian said seriously, looking Arundilano in the eyes as if to tell him to give up.
Arundilano’s face turned red and Cain looked sympathetic as he said, “Oh…..”
“No! It’s not like that! Why are you looking into that?”
“Because she had a child, she called out to His Highness who fell down like that…”
“Idiot! Idiot! What is it with Cain and the vice commander! No, that’s not it!”
Arundillano’s face was red with anger, while Cain pats his head and thinks about something completely unrelated: She looks like she’s in his mid-20s, but he has three children… wow…
Ilvalino, who had been released, rushed to Cain’s side and stepped on his foot with all the strength he could muster, giving Fabian a powerful look.
Fabian let out a sigh of relief and looked at the three children in turn. Finally, he returned his gaze to Cain.
“If you wanted to take the prince out to play, you should have asked for permission instead of taking him out on your own. If the guards and carriages were available, I’m sure you wouldn’t have been denied permission. Why didn’t you do that?”
There were many reasons why Cain hadn’t done it. Some he could honestly say, some he couldn’t.
“When I invited him to visit the Elgrandark family before, it took two weeks before he could actually visit us. For a reason, two weeks later is too late.”
“You mean there was somewhere you wanted to take His Royal Highness in a hurry?” Fabian asked.
Before going to the orphanage with His Highness the Queen, I wanted him to know what the orphanage was like. I wanted Arundilano to experience playing with the children of the orphanage and making friends with them to eliminate prejudice.
And though it will be his first visit to an orphanage(in His Highness the Queen’s point of view), he wanted to show His Royal Highness that he was an excellent prince who was not afraid to interact with the children without prejudice.
In other words, he wanted to prepare for the visit without telling Her Highness. There was no point in getting permission to go out for fun after the consolation visit.
“Then let’s go get permission. Follow me.”
“I can go get the permit on my own, but if I leave you guys behind, you’ll probably run away. Follow me.”
With that, he grabbed Ilvalino again and held him by his side, and Fabian strode off. Ilvalino was screaming what why! Let me go! And was trying to escape, but Fabian ignored his complaint, smiling broadly. …What about Ilvareno? Let me go! I’m not sure what to make of this, but I’m sure it’s a good idea.
In fact, Fabian’s request to the head maidservant of the queen’s highness was approved only after confirming Arundilano’s schedule.
As long as there were no problems with the security system, the destination, the people accompanying him, and the estimated time of his return to the castle, it seemed that he could go out. It was a condition that at least two knights of the King’s guard should be with him as security, and he was allowed to take Fabian and one other person from the King’s guard with him.
Cain wanted to wrap his head around it. What was the plan that he had even used a hidden passage for?
Of course, Cain did not have the authority to borrow people from the Knights of the Kings guard, and he did not know the head maid of the Queen, so it was difficult to get permission.
“I will prepare a carriage for you, and you will ride out in it. As you can see, I can’t have His Royal Highness the Crown Prince riding along with me on horseback,” Fabian said.
We set off in an unmarked knight’s carriage so that no one would know that royalty was riding in it. Cain Irvareano, Arundilano, and Fabian got in, and another knight was on the stand.
“Well, that was that but Cain. You should not have tried to take out the crown prince without telling anyone.”
Fabian gave Cain a stern talking-to, and he was lectured all the way to the orphanage.[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
