Reincarnated Princess Wishes To Avoid Death - Chapter 142
In order not to let wither what has been carefully grown
Neither Abel nor Sion have any doubt that Mia is a benevolent saint… but of course, they are dead wrong. Needless to say, Mia wasn’t merciful. It wasn’t out of compassion that she asked for the culprits to be spared. Mia is neither a saint nor has a big heart. In fact, she has a rather small chicken heart.
Just like anyone else, she gets angry when wronged, and right now she was staring at the very people who had sent her to the guillotine. The last thing she really wants is to help them. And unlike Dion’s delusion, she didn’t suspect them of withholding information.
But she has a particular concern that keeps gnawing on her, and that is…
What if the same things happen to them? I mean, I got a second chance at life after being guillotined. Isn’t there a chance that they will also get a second chance if they are executed?
Having leapt through time herself, she could not deny that there was a chance that other people might be able to do so as well.
If so, what are the conditions for it to happen?
It wasn’t clear and she doesn’t know for sure. She can only base it from her own experiences. For example, being killed on the same day or at the same time or in the same way might trigger it. Or it could be dying with regret.
If these people involved in the plot were executed… it could happen to them too.
Anyway, if these people were executed and they do really come back in time… what would that mean for Mia? All her hard work to change history may be overturned.
Then that would mean I’m back to the guillotine! I don’t want that!
Avoiding the guillotine was her main priority after her time leap. But now she realizes that there is another stronger emotion that is holding her here.
That’s not the only reason… I don’t want to go back… because I like it there. I like this timeline… this… now.
Mia looked around. At the people. At the scene.
There was her former enemy, Sion, and his follower, Keithwood.
There was Dion who personally chopped off her head.
And there was Abel, who was nothing more than a stranger before.
There was Tiona whose help allowed her to come this far…
… there was also Chloe and Rafina.
The Mia before only had Anne and Ludwig. Yet, the Mia now is full of friends. Mia finds in them a warm friendship. She likes the here and now more than she thought possible.
And then she paused…
…she realized that deep down, she was actually hoping that Sion and Tiona would continue to stay by her side. And she wasn’t sure how to feel about that.
D-don’t get me wrong. I-it’s not like I’m starting to like you people…
Whenever Mia wasn’t comfortable with her own emotions, she turned to her tried and tested coping mechanism – a tsundere outburst in her own heart.
If possible, I don’t want to get too close to him than necessary.
It is the one thing that Mia does not give in to.
“Abel, I know this will cause you a great deal of trouble, but…”
Abel shook his head with a weary smile at the anxious Mia.
“Oh, it sure will. But it is fine. After all, without you, I wouldn’t have been able to solve it peacefully like this. My father … I’ll try to convince him.”
“But if you’re planning on sparing them from execution, what are you planning to do to them?” (Sion)
To Sion’s legitimate question, Mia tilted her head, totally clueless
“Hmm, that’s right …”
To be honest with Mia doesn’t really care about them as long as they are alive.
If they are imprisoned in Remno, they’ll probably be assassinated. If they are imprisoned in Sunkland, then Remno would make a fuss. I guess I can take them back to Tearmoon, but…
That was when Jem snickered.
“Hey, are you really going to keep us alive? What a bunch of saints! Hahaha.”
Seeing the hateful grin of Jem, Mia scowled.
This guy is really irritating.
Mia, who was subtly frustrated and angry, suddenly came up with an idea! Her payback shall be the ultimate harassment!
“You’re exactly right. We are a bunch of saints. And since we are saints, we are going to send you to the Holy Lady. You will be spending the next three years hearing a sermon from Rafina every single day.”
Both Sion and Abel received Mia’s proposal very well. It was quite a decent idea. Belluga is the least contentious place to put these people. Dion muttered something about “letting them off easily”, but he was speaking more out of humor than hostility.
The White Crows stared at Mia with confused looks as if she just said a joke. However, one person had a very different reaction…
“F-F*** off! You don’t dare, you silly girl!”
Jem alone screamed and shouted with wide eyes and teeth bared. His whole demeanor changed. He was a little paler than before. His once irritation confidence was gone and is now replaced by clear panic.
Mia mirrored the nasty smile that he had given her earlier.
“Oh my, oh my. Didn’t you say that torture won’t work? And didn’t you say that I could do my worst?”
Serves you right. (Mia)
Despite Mia’s triumphant laugh, she did not really know the true implications of her proposal. Never in her wildest dreams did she imagine that this decision of hers would shine the first beam of light into the dark closet of history to expose the shadows hidden within.
Thus, the disturbance in the Kingdom of Remno came to an end.
Clemency was given to the core members of the Revolutionary Army, including the leader, Lambert, and his sister, Lynsha. All the credits go to Ludwig who deduced Mia’s intention. He went to the Remno royal capital and requested their pardon. According to him, if they assign most of the blame to the Remno people, then wouldn’t the blame of Sunkland be lightened? Wouldn’t it be better if they focus the blame on Sunkland? That way they can get more concessions during the negotiations.
His logic had proven persuasive, and the King Remno took his advice. Thus concluded the incident and allowed Mia and her company to return home. Upon arriving at the academy, Mia would face the despair that was midterms, but that sad story is for another day.
