bout it.

The two were chosen by another god.

And that they were going away from Haiss.


Van couldn’t answer.

The boy betrayed by his faith had a hard time choosing anything.

Anna let go of Ricky’s hand and approached Van.

Seeing that, Van was scared she would trip.

“I am here.”

“Brother Van.

She grabbed his hands and smiled brightly.

Seeing her face, Van smiled.

“Let’s go together~”


“You said that you would protect me.”

That was what Van said when Ricky left.

It had been only a few days, so she remembered.

But Van couldn’t answer.

Going together meant that he would have to commit himself to another religion.

“It will be fine, Van.”


It will be fine.”

Ricky approached and held out his hand.

The one and only precious friend they met in the orphanage and turned into quick friends.

Van stared at his friend’s hand.

Let’s go together.”

As he made his decision, Van smiled sadly.

“Sorry, Ricky.
I don’t think so.”

“… Van.”


Both looked at Van.

Van looked at them and removed Anna’s hand that was holding his.

But I don’t think I can do it anymore.”

Keeping a certain distance, he spoke to them.

“I will never turn towards a religion again.”

Going to a religion.

No one cares.

It was good though.

“I want to live my life my way.”

He wasn’t sure how far he could make it.

And if he thought about it, going with Ricky and Anna would be better.

But his heart rejected the idea.

“Thank you both.”


Ricky was about to catch him, but Van showed his palm.

A sign to not come any further.

Ricky’s face contorted.

Anna began to shed tears.

“Brother Van…”

“May you two only have good things in front of you.”

With those words, Van left.

He walked without looking back.

Ricky didn’t go because he didn’t have the right to.

So he only shouted to his friend.

“No matter when, I will wait for you! Always!”

Van raised his hand lightly.

His friend was now going away, and then Van couldn’t be seen.

Ricky and Anna held each other’s hand and sobbed quietly.

“Are you fine?”

The Count looked at his wife with worried eyes.

“Is there anything wrong?”

Sears smiled and moved towards her husband.

“The Pier Knights escort me.
And my husband is Count Welton, who will attack us?”

The Pier Knights were the strongest knights of Welton.

All the knights were elite of elite, and a total of 30 people were at Expert level.

And half the number were going to act as escort, so the thought of attacking the carriage would be done by madmen.

“Besides, Sir Lars is with us.”

Though he wasn’t as good as a Sword Master, Lars was also an Expert.

Of course, Lars didn’t know that they were planning on moving together.

“I was shocked when I heard he was a Holy Executioner.”

“I know right.
It is rare for a Holy Executioner to leave Apton.”

Holy Executioner was the most powerful weapon of Pyro.

Since the safety of the church mattered, they weren’t left from Apton.

It was proof that Pryo Church was taking this situation very seriously.

“Well, I am sorry I couldn’t come with you.”

“You need to protect the estate.
If the Lord is away for long, problems will happen.”

“Thank you for understanding it.”


The couple looked at each other passionately.

And then the count sighed.

“I am worried about Jamie.”

What happened at the ball was still in his mind.

Jamie, who lost his temper, tried to kill Count Simon’s eldest son.
If he wasn’t around, maybe the eldest son would have been dead.

“You never know when Jamie might explode.”


“He has power that he shouldn’t have at a young age.
I can't imagine how it will be if his emotions run wild like then and he explodes.”

And he wasn’t even accompanying them.

Although the Pier Knight commander was being sent, could that person handle Jamie?

Of course, Jamie wasn’t the kind to make such a mistake.
What happened at the ball was bad luck since the eldest son quarreled with Jamie.

However, since the count didn’t know that Jamie was someone who had lived for eons, it was natural for him to worry.

“It will be fine.”

Sears said while caressing his hands.

“Do you know what happened today?”

She told him what happened during tea time.

A smile formed on the counts lips as he listened to it.


At that time, I was confused.
But you know that our child is a good-hearted one.”


“I believe in my son.
Since I will be by his side, the same thing won’t happen.”

The count smiled and gently wrapped his arms around his wife.

“I am glad that our paths crossed.”

“Me too.”

Sears rested her head on his wide shoulders.

For a while.

And then both looked at the table.

A single letter was on it.

“… but, what is father-in-law thinking?”

“I never know what my father is thinking.
Maybe even my deceased mother doesn’t know?”

“Is he really wanting to see Jamie?”

The count let Sears go and open the letter.

There was a short sentence written in it.

[Bring Jamie with you.]
