The Villainess That Was Once A VRMMO player - Chapter 42.2
“Why are you going?”
I am at a loss for words myself. The nobles in this country were corrupt anyway, so it would be useless for him to be serious about it.
Moreover, he was in a vulnerable position and was even under threat of assassination, so I didn’t think he could afford to make more enemies by going out of his way to expose the evil of the nobility, you know?
I wanted to say something like that, but I was exhausted from talking too much.
When I suddenly said such a thing in the carriage, Camille-sama, who had guessed what I meant after a few seconds of silence, quietly answered me.
“I can only hope my brother will be relieved by the extent to which I have behaved myself. That man is paranoid. More than that, as long as I live, the queen will not be at ease. So, I need to be vulnerable in order to live… Are you disappointed? “
I didn’t have high hopes from the nobility in this country in the first place.
But thank goodness. I wondered what I would do if he said he wanted to make this country a better place, with a flimsy sense of justice. But Camille-sama was pretty blunt.
Two hours after leaving Arceides’ castle. We dropped Maia and the other non-combatants off at a town along the way, and when we started to feel strong magical energy as if we were approaching the Devil’s Forest, I sensed something like a murderous aura around us, perhaps due to my elven sense of smell or due to the benefit of my player character.
“We’re surrounded. Twenty to thirty.”
Camille-sama and Nicholas, the butler, turned to face me when I said this.
“How well can you tell? Is it a demon or…?”
The magic power was too low for it to be a demon. If it were such a weak demon, I doubt it would try to attack a carriage with 10 or so escorting knights.
Oh, but a goblin or something would most likely be stupid enough to attack.
“Stop the carriage. Prepare to intercept. They came in the most direct way, didn’t they?”
“I thought that they might prepare a suitable knight squad to make a mess, but Camille-sama seems to have agitated Count Arceides a bit too much.”
“I’m just a bit surprised that he made fun of my fiancée, you know.”
I wonder how serious he is…?
Camille-sama probably didn’t want to marry me, and I was still wary of him being a nobleman of this country, but I think we were close enough to talk casually.
[A demon is aiming for us!]
I heard a voice from outside that sounded like the Arceides’ guide. But, he was speaking in a very hushed tone, wasn’t he? There were no TV dramas broadcasted here, unlike on Earth, so I guess acting performances were only seen a few times a year, but it was too predictable.
Camille-sama gave me a questioning look when I got off the carriage after the two.
“You should stay in the carriage. Even if you can use magic, the danger is…”
I unleashed [Ice Lance], which shot through the guide who was trying to sneak away.
“They’re about to appear. It’s the Dark Knights division.”
As if my magic was a signal, knights in black armor appeared from the forest.
They were a unit specializing in counterintelligence from the Arceides territory, who had attacked me many times before when I was a Witch. At one point, they were on the verge of extinction, but it would appear that their numbers have increased again since then.
“How does the young lady know about the dark side? “
