Reincarnated Princess Wishes To Avoid Death - Chapter 140
The Miracle of Horse Shampoo (coefficient of friction …)
“Uh… Who are you?”
“Hahaha. I don’t want to sully the ears to the Great Wisdom of the Empire by letting you know my name.”
The man smiled hatefully after showing him a mocking bow.
“Mia, are you safe!?”
Immediately after, both Princes Abel and Zion, rushed down. Anne and Dion followed right behind them.
“Are you Jem?”
In response to Sion’s keen question, Jem shrugged.
“Since you know my name, does this mean that you already know the plan of the White Crow?”
“That’s right. All your schemes have been revealed.”
With that said, Sion pulls out his sword.
“Your friends have also surrendered. Stop resisting and just give yourself up.”
For some reason, Jem shook his head with a bitter smile.
“Even so, I feel sorry for that Graham’s guy. His loyalty was unappreciated by his young and fastidious prince.”
“Surrender already. We’ve already rescued Count Dasayev Donovan. You’re the only one left.”
The voice echoed from the opposite side, that is, from the underground direction.
What emerged from the shadows was Keithwood. Jem was now trapped in the middle.
“You found the underground escape route? It seems that it was not only Prince Sion but also his attendant’s reputation that is well earned.”
Sion was on the stairs and Keithwood in the basement. Jem was standing in the middle… and Mia was secretly trying to escape.
This is my opportunity to get out of here.
Mia casually tried to leave the place with quiet, slow, and inconspicuous movements. But soon, she felt a cold metal on her neck.
Mia gasped and straightened up. The memory of the guillotine’s cold and heavy blade came back to her.
“Don’t do anything smart now. It’s easy to cut off your neck.”
Nodding to Gem’s words, Mia stiffened.
“Don’t do anything stupid. Sunkland won’t support the Wind Crows, White or Black. Your plans have already failed.”
“Don’t say it with finality, Prince Sion. I might be hurt with those words and cause my hand to slip and cut this girl’s neck.”
Jem tapped Mia’s shoulder with the blade to prove his point.
“Anyway, it is because of this little girl that all my plans have been crushed. You can bet that I have a deep grudge against her.”
Mia whimpered and there seemed to be a sound of something dripping…
Jem looked down at Mia and smiled mockingly.
“Hey, even if she is the Wisdom of the Empire, a kid is still a kid.”
Mia’s skirt was wet, and everyone were thinking of the same thing: that she had peed herself out of fear.
Well, almost anyone thought this was the case. Aside from a single person.
Anne, Mia’s number one loyal retainer, figured out what happened.
Wrong! This smell is…
The scent of flowers tickled her nose, and that is the scent that she is accustomed when she sniffs her mistress’ hair. Anne remembered what her dear mistress said: “I feel that what Abel gave me was a little more moisturising.”
That dripping liquid was from the broken bottle of the shampoo. This shampoo was slimier than the others. Then something clicked on Anne’s mind…
Anne’s sudden shout surprised everyone. Everyone froze and time seemed to have stopped. Everyone except for Mia. She believed in the instructions of her most loyal retainer that she moved out of reflex.
Mia shifted the weight of her foot to start running. But time seemed to move again for everyone.
When Gem noticed that Mia was trying to escape, he raises his sword to cut the head of the hated Wisdom of the Empire. It seemed like he would be able to slash her head without any effort.
Mia stepped forward to run but she slipped back.
The shampoo had soaked the soles of her shoes that she made unexpected movements that even expert fighters cannot foresee. Her flew out from behind, and her body slammed forward.
After that a sharp swish sound flew just mere inches above her head.
It was Mia who screamed as she fell in an unflattering fashion. But no one blamed her for it.
“Damn, this! Ugh!”
Jem raised his sword to slash at Mia again. But when he walked forward, he too stepped on the shampoo puddle and fell flat right behind her. It was too sudden of a shock that he let go of his sword as was falling. His sword flew away from his reach
“Mia-sama, come here quickly!”
The scene was a confusion of sprawled bodies and entangled limbs. Mia tried once again to stand up and to reach Anne; only to fall down again.
Behind her was Jem, already back on his feet and dashing to chase after Mia.
“This kid, wait… Ogu !?”
What happened next was either an unfortunate accident or fortunate coincidence. While falling down again, Mia’s heel was in the right trajectory as Jem’s ba- No, it’s better not to mention it. But she hit him in a place where he really felt it.
Jem crouches down on the spot, muffling a scream. Dion walked up to him holding a sword walks up to him, but it was unneeded.
“Ah … I didn’t expect the princess to finish you by herself…” (Dion)
He said in a stunned tone.
Thus, one of the masterminds, Jem, was brilliantly repelled. The deciding factor that ended the case was the splendid kick that was unleashed from the beautiful legs of Mia Luna Tearmoon, the Wisdom of the Empire.
