Your Majesty, Please Behave Yourself - Chapter 17
Licinius dreamed of the day he left the capital.
“Are you sure you want to leave with me? Not only will you have the best magical resources if you stay here, you might even be able to restore your noble reputation, and then become the adopted daughter of the Archduke of Bourne.”
“I don’t want to.”
“If you leave with me, you will suffer a lot, and maybe your life will be in danger too, so stay.”
“Alright, since you insist on leaving with me. But aren’t you afraid that I will have ideas for you? In the past, I couldn’t do anything due to the large number of people in the family, but once we go to Loma City, I could do whatever I want, and I could play with you from childhood to adulthood. “
“I’m not afraid.”
“Well, let’s go then.”
When he opened his eyes again, he found that the pillow had long since been empty, leaving only the traces of the sheets that had been folded, and the neatly folded quilt, lingering with the girl’s unique fragrance.
Noren gets up at about five o’clock every day. She will first perform daily combat and magic training in the yard, and then take a shower. After getting dressed, she will go to the kitchen to make breakfast.
Day after day, like a robot.
“Good morning, Noren.”
Licinius stretched and walked downstairs after dressing and washing, only to be welcomed by a strong fragrance.
Today’s breakfast is creamy mushroom porridge.
“Morning, young master.”
Noren was sitting across the table, staring blankly at him with her hands on her cheeks. She never eats breakfast in order to maintain her body shape, but she undertook the responsibility of cooking, and after seeing the young master eat all the food she made, she always has a satisfied look.
Licinius was drinking the soup, and the corner of his eyes fell on the newspaper by the table.
The content of today’s newspaper was finally no longer about vicious incidents of beating, smashing and looting, because the front-line border guards finally withdrew from the ancient city of Hera after a temporary truce, and took the floating boat to cross the forest of magic and arrive at the city of Loma. This city, which is riddled with security problems, has ushered in a true peace.
Riots can only be suppressed with violence.
And in this world, nothing is more violent than the military.
Licinius flipped through the newspaper and whispered,
“Well, that frontier guard is the elite of the Empire, the Iron Legion. The commander of the Legion is Cyrus Via Salvatore, one of the three giants of the empire, and also the son of Archduke Joachim, as far as I know, the Empress only went to the front line to supervise the battle two months ago, which means that in the past, the ancient city of Hera was mostly under the control of this general Cyrus.”
He finally understood how this black magic came out.
It is no wonder that the Empress will personally go to the front line to supervise the battle.
In the name of supervising war, she was actually investigating the source of black magic.
“So, the clown thugs desperately want to take the money and leave, is it because they are afraid of Cyrus?”
Licinius was lost in thought.
Suddenly, the sound of knocking sounded.
Noren looked suspicious and got up to open the door.
Outside the courtyard, Triya stood at the door with a smile, still dressed in a beautiful and refined white lotus dress. She said softly, “Master Licinius, classmate Noren, good morning.”
Noren glanced blankly at her breasts that were about to pop out from her dress, then turned back and sat down.
“What brings you here?”
After Licinius finished drinking the porridge, he greeted, “Come in.”
Triya didn’t mind. After entering and taking a tour of the room, she asked straight to the point, “I’m here to ask, are you still planning to go to the academy today?”
Licinius thought for a while: “I’ll go, Noren will probably be a bit late.”
He had assigned a task to Noren to go to the Black Pearl Chamber of Commerce to purchase alchemy materials.
Triya said faintly, “Then you have to be careful. After the Iron Legion arrived in Loma City, it replaced the city lord’s position and completely took control of the city, and the garrison has also been incorporated. General Cyrus’s spies are running wild in the city, seeming to be investigating, or looking for something.”
Licinius suddenly became excited.
Where there is danger, there is him!
“Yes, Cyrus’ spies are not easy to mess with. We have clashed with them secretly and openly many times. Since they come to Loma City this time, I am afraid that they are planning to completely eradicate Her Majesty’s people here.”
Triya seriously said, “They even invited people from the Administrative Bureau.”
Licinius raised an eyebrow.
Triya nodded, “Yes, it is also a special department under the military, specialised in intelligence and reconnaissance work. The person in charge is one of the three giants of the empire, Constance Barron.”
Licinius remembers that legendary figure. It is said that he started as a detective in his early years. Later, he was favoured by the empire and established an intelligence department in the military with a very respectable level of strength in his own right.
“Her Majesty said that if you encounter danger, you should find a way to evacuate the city of Loma. We have a secret base outside the city. But in that case, Cyrus’ people will definitely notice our disappearance and will locate our hideout at that time, our identities, and what we have done in the past,” Triya said.
“Her Majesty has already made a plan for the worst?” Licinius was a little surprised.
“After all, they hired the successor of the Administrative Bureau, the direct descendant of the Barron family.”
Triya said; “His detection ability is very strong, so you need to be more careful. Once your black magic is exposed, you should know what kind of disaster you will face.”
She took out a ring studded with black diamonds and handed it over.
Licinius asked curiously.
“Her Majesty handed it to you, don’t use it unless you have to.”
Triya said seriously.
Licinius was quite surprised. He didn’t expect the benefits of hugging the Empress’ jade legs to come so quickly.
As expected of the richest woman in the Brentania Empire.
“Because you have black magic, Her Majesty doesn’t want your knowledge to flow into the hands of the other party. Don’t think too much. If there is an accident, you must evacuate first, and we will cover you…” Triya continued.
“Evacuate? Why evacuate?”
Licinius asked rhetorically.
Triya was taken aback.
“In the entire city of Loma, am I not the Empress’ only secret pawn? As for you, aren’t you all our five-star good citizens and enthusiastic good students? There isn’t any other secret spy!” Licinius asked.
Triya was stunned.
Noren also raised her head with confusion on her face.
Taking advantage of the silly girl’s inattentiveness, Licinius shoved the black diamond-studded ring into her hand, and said with a righteous expression,
“As a determined revolutionary, how can I be cowardly in the face of difficulties and dangers? Her Majesty told us to escape due to her compassion and kindness, but we, as subordinates, won’t we feel ashamed of doing so?”
He paused and said solemnly, “We can escape for a while, but not forever. This country still needs us to save it, how can we back down because of a small setback?”
“If we shrink back once, there will be a second time. How can we save this troubled country in the long run? Isn’t this cowardice and a betrayal of Her Majesty’s trust?”
Triya was completely dumbfounded. Looking at the distressed and emotional young man in front of her, she felt ashamed for the first time…
Now that’s what you call a true integral and inspiring young man!
“In short, I will not abandon my companions and escape alone!”
Licinius said decisively.
What a joke!
It’s so hard to find such a good opportunity, how could he escape?
If the enemy is really powerful enough to kill him, then it would be his win!
If they couldn’t kill him, then sorry, they would have to be killed by him.
Because he doesn’t know any black magic at all, and he only has a magic book in his hand. Judging from his understanding of the world, even a seventh-order peak warlock can’t bear the divine curse in this book.
Originally, he was still worried about how to increase his reputation in the Brentania Empire.
Now, isn’t the Empress the best option!
“Whether it’s being killed by Joachim or Cyrus, holding the Empress’s thigh, gradually rising in reputation, then taking the opportunity to bear eternal infamy, or even committing suicide by sacrificing myself to an evil god, or being identified by the church as a vicious heretic, then put to death, this is the best chance I have ever had since transmigrating…”
He has to face the storm!
