The Grand Prince Has Run Away - Chapter 73
Translator: NovelMultiverse | Editor: NovelMultiverse
We stayed in a hotel called ‘Darkness’.
Last year, Shura, the Great Holy Lady of Yinyang, stayed in this hotel for a while, and as soon as our group arrived, they welcomed us by opening all the luxury rooms and spare rooms.
It seemed to me that this hotel would flourish greatly.
However, one thing that was disappointing was that the service spirit was too strong.
‘A four-bedroom for one? You should think of other guests.’
I opened the window and looked outside, leaving my luggage down grumbling.
Rumors have already spread that we have come, and countless residents have begun to flock outside the main gate of the hotel. The majority were nearby merchants and locals, but the number of pilgrims was gradually increasing.
At this rate, I would be surrounded and would never dream of seeing outside.
I left the room right away and looked for an escape route.
“Hey, isn’t there a back door here?”
An employee pointed to a nearby kitchen at my question.
“It’s in the kitchen.”
When I went to the kitchen, there was a small door where food ingredients came in. I went out there and disappeared as if I were seeping into a nearby alleyway.
“Come on, come on~ It’s very cheap.”
I was entering the market road before I knew it. All kinds of goods were bought and sold here, and there was also a cart selling snacks. I bought some skewers there and went around looking around the city.
Many people glanced at me. There seemed to be someone who often recognized me.
But soon, they turned their eyes and went their own way.
As I went out of the market street, a familiar path appeared in my eyes. It was a long way I passed when I was chased by Katrina last year. At that time, I was running away from the temple of purity, so I had to go through this path.
Since I’m here, I decided to stop by for a while.
It’s a pretty female elf.
“I’m not a believer here.”
“But come in and take a look around. It will be a very meaningful religious experience.”
She was very active to me, a human male, unlike the average female elf. The Elves are very exclusive, but they can be very flexible for their missions.
“Then shall we go in for a moment?”
“Yes, come on in.”
The female elf priest introduced herself as Rielly.
I went inside with Rielly’s guidance. What I saw was an area with a large brass plate sign. It was a toilet that I used as an escape route last year, but it was refurbished and sacred.
It’s the place where the Great Holy Lady of Fire condemned the Prince of Baduk. I seemed to have left a proper historical footprint.
“Oh, this is where the Prince of Baduk died.”
For a moment, I could feel the eye toward us. It seemed to be just looking, but I could see a sharp look with a little bit of hate.
“Alietta? Where are you going?”
I glanced away at Rielly’s words. Alieta, I’ve heard of it somewhere.
‘Alietta······. Who was it?’
Alieta was a blue-eyed female elf with green hair over her waist. It was a typical Forest Elf look.
She was tall like an elf, but her legs were exceptionally long.
To sum up, She’s fantastically pretty. However, the most noticeable beauty is the breast. I’ve never seen a woman with a bigger breast than Armida.
“I’ll be right back because I’ve been out for a while. It just so happens that we’re running out of church candles.”
“Okay. Have a safe trip.”
When Alieta left the temple, I asked Rielly.
“Who is it?”
“She’s a member of our church.”
“But She’s wearing a priest suit.”
“No, it looks similar, but it’s a monk suit. Alieta has been training in faith in our temple for 10 years.”
Even though she was an Elf, 10 years was a long time. It is too much for religious training built by ordinary believers.
“Oh, my God. What faith training do you do for 10 years?”
“She’s going to be inside the Hall of Holyness this year.”
I stopped walking for a moment. The word “Hall of Holyness” finally reminded me of who Alietta was.
Alieta was a female elf who became famous as a great holy lady who disappeared as soon as she was born.
‘Oh, She was Alietta…’
Come to think of it, I had a relationship with all the great holy ladies except for the Valkyrie. Princess Sierra was my fiancee, Princess Ignes was my first love, and I had a crush on Padilla. And today, I met Alietta even though it was a brief relationship.
“No, It’s just interesting”
Rielly tilted her head.
After that, I went around the temple of purity and watched it all the way. There was no new scenery because it had a structure similar to that of another church of light, but I didn’t even know the day went by because I enjoyed the pretty female elves.

In the evening, I came back to the hotel after finishing a simple tour.
Still, the front door was full of people. They looked at the window on the top floor of the hotel, strangling themselves just in case they saw Shura’s face.
Among the current great ladies, Shura was chosen as the most popular woman. It was because she was the only known great holy lady on the side of the dark forces, and she had shown miracles through the last war.
Of course, it is not a miracle, but the general public deserved to believe it was a miracle because Kara, who has only thousands of troops, left the great Robros devastated.
And I also appear in the miracle. I went into the hotel using the kitchen door to not get caught by others.
“Brother! Where have you been?”
Armida screamed when she saw me. I looked around and stared at her with a suspicious face.
“Tomorrow is the day you go to report, right? There’s a lot to prepare.”
“You said there was nothing to report?”
“But you have to prepare.”
“What are you going to write?”
“Anything that looks plausible.” [Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
I scratched my head in annoyance.
“You should’ve done that sooner. Why are you making a fuss now?”
“Eat first. My head won’t work if I’m hungry.”
“You can order room service for a meal. Come on.”
“Oh, my God, you should eat at the table. I can’t digest if I eat on my desk.”
“Hey! Are you really doing this?”
“I’ll come and help you later.”
I ran away to the hotel restaurant in a hurry. I felt like I had to run away again as soon as I finish my meal.
“I’d like today’s menu.”
I ordered from the restaurant on the second floor. It is said to be a wine-steamed lamb, and bread with butter is also served. I looked around while waiting for the meal. Attention is drawn from all directions to see if any of the guests recognize me.
‘Because of the mask, it seems to stand out.’
When I was touching the mask, a woman wearing a deep hood walked to me. I tried to send her away because I couldn’t be bothered.
She sat in front of me, crossed her legs.
“Baekmyeon. Long time no see…”
The woman looked as if she knew me. I looked at her face in her hood and frowned. Although she was quite beautiful, it was because she was an unwelcomed guest.
It was a master assassin that I had once fought with around last summer.
“You, did you follow us?”
“No. You guys came to my hotel.”
“Are you staying here?”
“Yes, I stayed a while ago. But now I’m kicked out. Because of who.”
Apparently, She was kicked out of this hotel because of us.
No wonder I didn’t even make a reservation for St. Procia Day, but they gave me so many rooms.
“I’m sorry. Do you want to stay with me in my room? It’s a four-person room, so it’s a bit spacious for me to use alone.”
Evelyn raised one corner of her mouth to reveal her long fangs.
“Are you teasing me? Are you trying to seduce me?”
“Of course the latter.”
“But we’re enemies, aren’t we? Did you forget?”
I waved my hands and shook my head.
“There’s no such thing as an eternal enemy, no allies in the world are allies forever either.”
“Well, I guess that makes sense.”
“Buy me a meal first?”
“Why don’t you even have money to eat?”
“I do, but I don’t have enough money. The person I serve is so low in living ability.”
“Huh. Well, your kinds don’t have enough living skills. So I’m going through that a lot, too.”
Evelyn squinted at me.
“Do you happen to know who we are?”
I clapped my hands to call the waiter. And I ordered one more for the same menu.
Evelyn held her chin still.
I glanced at her.
“But I advise you. Don’t make a big accident this time. All of my sisters are here now.”
“I know. It’s my job to keep an eye on you.”
“Do you know why they’re gathered?”
“Annual event at best.”
“Oh, you know that, though?”
“It was the same last year.”
I opened my eyes round.
“You were here last year?”
“Yes, I have something to steal from the divinum. Of course, the mission was successful.”
“Yes, but one immature prince made a scene, so it was easy.”
The immature prince is me.
“That’s why you had that accident in Kara?”
“Yes, it worked.”
Soon the dishes were listed on the table. Evelyn again took two forks and tore the steamed lamb into pieces to start eating deliciously.
I slowly opened my mouth.
“Hey, what’s your real purpose? To be honest, I can’t believe what my sister is saying.”
“Do you want to know?”
“Yes, I’m curious.”
“But you’d better not know.”
“If you know, you’ll die”
Her harsh words made me laugh.
“But if Evelyn is willing to kill in plain sight, there aren’t many to live.”
“So you have to keep on not knowing. Even if you find out, don’t pretend you know.”
Evelyn sent a meaningful look. I bit my lips slightly with a feeling. She seemed to be talking about our sisters.
Of course, it may be a lie, but if my life depends on it, I have to think about it.
“Okay, I’ll take that advice into consideration.”
I ripped the bread and dipped it in the dish.
“Then what should I treat you to thank you for the advice?”
“If you really appreciate it, give me a deal.”
“These days, Kara’s got an idea contest. You said the prize was ten thousand?”
Evelyn seemed to have seen a poster of the contest hanging throughout the Western Great Desert. It is an invention contest that can transport large quantities of goods quickly.
“You’ve really seen it.”
Evelyn opened her eyes sharply.
“Yes, it’s right next to my master’s bounty poster.”
“Oh, don’t mind that poster. It’s just a formality. We have to work, too.”
“Well, we don’t really care either. It’s a meaningless poster.”
“Thank you for thinking so.”
“Anyway, we can offer you the idea, but are you sure you’re going to give me a reward?”
“If you like it. Sure.”
Evelyn took out a bunch of documents from the subspace pouch. It was quite thick, so I couldn’t see it at a glance, but it was the same design with a strange machining mechanism.
I looked all the way over and said.
“What kind of machine is this?”
“It’s made by my master. It’s called a magic-powered iron cart”
“A Magic-powered iron cart?”
“Do you happen to know about the tracks in the mine?”
I know. In mines, heavy ore is carried as quickly and as much as possible, and rails are laid on the floor for carts to pass through.
“It’s a magic-powered iron cart running on it. The structure is complicated, but I think it’s enough to be made by humans. the principle of the mechanical device is to reverse the spinning wheel.”
“Really? Then how much can you ship?”
“Running 20 kilometers an hour with thousands of people on it.”
If it is true, it was a huge thing. If you run 20 kilometers per hour, you can cross the southern desert in two days.
The problem is that the cost of installing a railway and the cost of producing a magic-powered iron cart are beyond imagination, but it was not a matter of questioning.
It is a matter of lives.
If I could move many Shikar people to Jores Island in the future era of destruction, I could greatly increase the island’s defense, so my life span would naturally increase.
“I like it.”
“Then I want you to put a good word in Kara.”
When Evelyn tried to take back the bundle of designs, I grabbed her by the wrist. If she leaves now, there is no promise when she will give this blueprint.
“Let’s make a deal here now.”
“Do you have money?”
I poured gold coins out of my subspace pocket and put them on the table. The money was made by selling a large number of mana-bomb launchers during the last war.
As soon as I finished the exchange, I held the blueprint in my hand and smiled in triumph. It is a blueprint containing Valkyrie’s knowledge of Magic Engineering. It’s definitely not an ordinary item.[Read this novel and other amazing translated novels from the original source at the “Novel Multiverse dot com” website @ novelmultiverse.com]
