His Majesty’s tone felt like this topic was more important.
“Arise, you came to our country alone, didn’t you?
“Yes, I was expelled.”
“I don’t know if this is a good time to ask this all of a sudden.”
His Majesty paused
“How is Alise’s family doing?”
The words, which she hadn’t expected to hear from His Majesty’s serious face, made her make a strange sound.
“Family, is it?”
“Yeah, I was wondering if they were still in Mullen and would like to move here”
“I didn’t think His Majesty would worry about such things.”
“I heard that you’re a righteous man, but I am no different from a commoner.”
“If you say that an S-ranked certified adventurer is a commoner, you’ll be really offending a lot of people.”
“I’m sure that’s true…… But,”
When she said that much, Alise lowered her eyes.
“My parents are already dead.”
Alise’s father was a knight of the royal court.
“One day he left home, saying he was going to fight, and never came back.”
That’s when Alise was 20 years old.
“A year later, my mother fell ill and passed away, following in my father’s footsteps.”
“I guess I’ve made you remember some bad memories… I’m sorry.”
His Majesty bowed lightly.
“No, never mind. But I have a sister. She might still be in Mullen.”
Alise was an adult now, so she had a way to get by even after her parents passed away.
However, her sister was only 15 years old at the time.
“She was deemed too young to look after herself and was taken in by relatives.”
“Then why don’t you invite your sister over here at least?”
“I wish I could, but I haven’t heard from my sister in over two years.”
She may still be living with relatives, but she didn’t have any reliable contact information.
“I don’t know. Well, it’s fine if you can get in touch with her and ask your sister about her intentions.”
“I’m sorry for your urgent concern,
“No, it’s okay. I guess I’m the one who’s been unnecessarily distracted.”
His Majesty smiled as he said this.
“Dion, thank you for accompanying her.”
“No, It’s your Majesty’s request.”
The Marquis was always tense.
From the way His Majesty spoke, it seemed that they have known each other for quite some time, but what happened between them?
“Now that we’re done talking, is there anything else you’d like to talk about?”
“No, not from my end.”
“Okay. Then we are done for today.”
As he said this, His Majesty took a sip of his tea that was placed in front of him.
“Then we’ll take our leave.”
“Yeah, sorry to call you out on such short notice.”
Alise and Marquis Dion got up and left the king.
“Oh, I’m tired ……
The marquis sighed loudly.
TN: Could have taken better care of her sis tho. 2 years without contact… sounds a bit too much, However, I guess the situation wasn’t favourable. More Chapters of this and Gas station morrow. Does anyone even read the Gas Station novel?? Would love your thoughts on it, chapters are long though…. And Please Disable AdBlock if you haven’t already, I try to make ads less intrusive as possible. Thank you <3
