Chapter 31 Part 2
After think it for a while, I decide to change Dorotheeo name to Dorote .
Part 2 .
The Ancient Kshyperuk principality can be divided roughly into five regions .
Beside the imperial city at the central area, there were ”
” separated at East-West-North-South direction .
The king’s brother, Archduke ”
Fernando Nevalez Kshyperuk
” was lived in the grand duchy capital there and governed the east land .
The term ”
was lived there
” already a past tense when the Grand duke himself had died during the invasion of Jaroudeku kingdom in the past , the land had been took over by Fernando’s younger brother, ”
who succeed the grand duke along with the right in throne and bestowed with this land .
*His name can be read as “Aukusti” in western name too .
Since his last name still attained “Kshyperuk” , the royal family name, his territory is ”
Fernando grand duchy
” or just call it ”
” as short version .
Even you see it like this, the archduke position is only give to someone who connected to royal lineage .
Inevitable, now, everything are eliminated and perished in the invasion .
The east capital dukedom, ”
” is now conquered by Jaroudeku kingdom, in order to govern the east territory, ”
East Strategic Point
” was made with a portion of Black Jaw Knight’s order which stationed in the city .
Once in the past, the royal castle that served the Archduke, the ”
” Castle is now take over by Jaroudeku’s army and used as their base .
Raspedo castle has high tower placed in four directions .
The tower of the old days that had been used to lookout the surrounding, now lose its function as time move toward to the peaceful era . you could say that it is a decoration to the castle .
It was being re-used in practical way with a completely different purpose .
In it, there is a room is, A girl who wandering her line of sight in a listless appearance .
The name of the girl, Eleonora who inherit blood line of the king . a rightful legitimate princess .
which mean this room is being use to ”
“, although the appearance precisely looked modestly, it could not be call a room for accommodate the royal family .
The girls spent her time gaze at iron bars fitted window and an unusually sturdy door randomly, does not know when her time gonna come, she sighed .
For not able to see a change for better outcome, this is truly a dull room .
After fallen in the hand of Jaroudeku’s army, she was imprisoned here, in Raspedo castle .
This room located on the top floor of steeple in Raspedo castle .
With the height of several ten meters from the ground, the way to get on there or leave there is to use a single long spiral staircase only .
A tight security has been laid around the area to prevent the girl from escape this place .
Even this place is easy to escape, whether the girl has the resolve to does it is still another question .
She keep repeated passed the entire day with sigh and silence .
The king who was her father no longer alive .
With strong desire to escape her painfully feeling reality, plus the fact that being isolated from her aunt, Martina and her cousin, Isadora, which also has been imprisoned .
Caught in helpless situation,
She even turn away her eyes from the reality & her future even more .
The girl doesn’t know where she can find hope and become sluggishness .
One day, something happen .
An event of visitor who came suddenly which break the silence in the room,
Only a sound of heavy knock from door was made out of a room .
For the change that happen too suddenly, she was start to trembling in fear .
A maid who was in front the door has move toward next room while conceal her breath .
After she exchange looking several times at the door, mechanical sound which happen from using key resounded .
It can be seen clearly from far away,
A strong omen indicate that someone gonna enter the room .
The owner of omen walking toward Eleonora who does not directly strive her line of sight at it .[Does the mood around here suit your taste? ”
” Kshyperuk princess . ]
The girl shaking lightly, raise her line of sight in frightened appearance at Cristobal, the supreme general of Jaroudeku’s army ,the second Jaroudeku’s prince who stood over there .[fuh, are you not a bit too ”
Initially, when got imprisoned in this land,
Eleronora became restless but after cry out and lament for a while, when her emotion become sluggish, she got calmer .[Today, I bring you the good news to you . be rejoice, the method how to ”
” you has been decided . in order to stabilize Kshyperuk region, time has come, your bloodline will be put to use . ]
Not hesitate to ignore her reaction,
Cristobal tell her in pomposity manner and distort the end of his mouth .[You shall be become the wife of this great me] [S . . . such a thing . . . how unpleasant . . . -desu]
Eleonora manage to gather her will and squeezed out her return word, a slender voice, face down and make an intention to reject him clearly .
However, that does not disturb Cristobal’s smile .[Do you think you have a choice? I don’t think so . be obediently and agree to it . ]
Cristobal leaned closer, reach his hand and draw out Eleonora’s arm that flee from him reflexively and whispered to her .[If you gonna reject that much, then you have no any value . the people that got caught together with you, I will hasten their execution date . ]
Cristobal sadism’s smile reflected on the wide opened stark eyes of Elenora .[The daughter of grand duke is it?, the continue of bloodline of who once was king’s relative . her fate depend on your decision . will this enough to motivate you? after all, ”
she was caught together with her mother
” . ] [A . . . . ah . . . . it can’t be . . . ]
Leave the collapsed Eleonora who lost all her power,
Cristobal turn back after he finish his business .[To show you mercy, I will give you sometime to think . you better made you mind as soon as possible and do tell me . if it take too long, I may be change my mind, you know?]
He said it bluntly and exit the room, leave the stunned Eleonora behind .
Then after a while,[ . . . . I’m sorry . . . I’m sorry . . . everyone . . . I’m sorry, father . . . !!]
There are nothing that the girl can do but lie down on the bed, crying out and cover her face with her hand .
A sound was made again before the room that imprisoned princess,
It’s Cristobal who went down the spiral staircase .
Unintentionally, he leaking a sigh .
It was a disappoint face for someone who gonna marry the renowned maiden of west land .[ . . . seriously, women know only weeping and cry . anyway, I liked it . ] [Your highness, If you bring out such a reason like that, there no way she gonna reject it . ]
Cristobal twist his face in more displeasure at the unstoppable remark of Dorote who was outside the room .[Hm, of course, it sure thing . they even dispatch my younger sister in order to reign over Kshyperuk . To not service this me is in-acceptable . however, you don’t need make a fuss about care over that hindrance, you got that?]
Dorote had been harboring a worry feeling but it seem that the lord himself did not take it seriously, he leak a relief sigh secretly as long as he was not blame .[By the way, this east territory seem to be busy a lot lately, Am I right? Deroteo . ]
Another bitter thought is now rise up in Dorote, by Cristobal who changed the topic there .
Because it is a topic that he want to avoid the most and no desire for his lord to hear it .
However, he answered innocently .[Yes, it is apparently that there was an unexpected experience fellows . we think about deal with it soon or later . ] [Hou, I thought that people in this country always lack a ball, so there still someone with the bone left? Oi, . . . finally . . . a worthy prey . . . . ] [You can’t , sir!]
A restraint word just shot at Cristobal who’s mood was slightly improve while hasten his walk down step .[Your highness gonna need to lead a punitive expedition soon right? you can’t do this no matter what, because you are our Jaroudeku’s army supreme general . please leave such a trivial matter to us, you need to fulfill your role . ]
Cristobal feel incredibly annoy and unexpected bored right away but he manage to stand it .[then hurry up and get rid off such trivial thing!!]
while following Cristobal who haste his pace, Dorote revert his disturbed thought face to his original compose one as the usual behavior .
After split up with Cristobal, Dorote immediately summon his men .
This subordinates are all members of 2nd prince Cristobal’s forces, soldiers who serve under Dorote’s command for long time .[ . . . so that why, I always say we better clean up this mess early, because it gonna unavoidable caught his highness interest . ]
With long relationship history with Dorote and Cristobal, they are all know well about his personality .
Easy to figure it out with just looking at him .
They are all unanimously wear a wry smile .[I need to attain to his highness assistance role now, I leave this matter to you, ”
” . ]
A young man with tall and thin body stepped out among the men after received Dorote’s word .
His strange dress was equipped with various large and small ”
” attached on numerous belt around his hip, he answered with his fist, a self confidence appearance .[Ou! you can wait, Oldman! , leave it to us, because we are gonna make sure to stop it . ]
That right, this man was adopted son of Dorote, “Gustav Marudones”, assure him by hitting his chest .
The adopted father look at this really reassuring rough appearance with blank expression while leak a sneak laugh at the men groups .
This exchange interaction between parent and child is a usual event for them .
During such a dangerous calm, they were interrupted by the voice of third party .[About that task, would you mind to let me take part in it too? is it fine?]
A firm voice of suddenly appear figure has bind everyone there .
Dorote narrowed his questioned eyes at the person who coming from darkness despite create the tension around the area .[ . . . . You are . . . Sir Hietakannas . . . . ”
Leader of copper fang knight
” right?, what in it for us?]
The person may be look outright suspicion attitude, however, she is Copper fang knight order’s grand master, ”
“, look around everyone with natural gloss smile .
ゲルヒルト>Geruhiruto> Gerhild * the heck how can they read “d”? I almost use Gerhilt .[You guys don’t need to be that vigilance, anyone who stand against our Jaroudeku’army are all our enemy equally . or you don’t like if I lend a hand?] [Although burrow outsider hand, I can only feel that trouble gonna increase . you can take part but only help us out . is that clear?] [Judge from the fame Steel fang knight ability, It should be enough already right? we’ll only search for that nasty death reaper for you . ]
Dorote try gather his thought carefully in order to deal with the enemy and the purpose of Gerhilt .
The most troublesome problem would be pinpoint enemy position, So he take up the offer .[Kukukuh, well then, I will go to dispatch my subordinate, you can expected a good news!]
Gerhilt walk away while leaving odious laughter like enigmatic snake behind . Gustav raise his voice against his adopted father with suspicious air while send her off with a glance .[Old man, Is this fine with you?] [ . . . although this unexpected woman fox seem to be careless but her work can be trusted . what wrong with it? We only need to focus our task . Gustav, soon as you received report, go sortie at once . ]
Gustav and the subordinates make a salute to Dorote . after a while, An airship that carried them depart from Raspedo Castle .
