There was a strange scene in front of Alise now, with the butler and the young lady bowing to Alise.
”For now, please raise your head. I just thought it would be a bad idea to abandon you like that, so…’
At Alise’s words, they both raised their heads.
”I’m sorry for the delayed introduction. I am Sophie Odin, the eldest daughter of the Marquis family.
The Marquis is the third from the top in the hierarchy of titles.
He is the senior nobleman of the country, which is said to require the same level of power as the duke.
”My name is Alise Bate,”
As she said this, Alise put one knee on the ground.
‘You don’t have to be so formal. You are our benefactor.”
‘Okay. I appreciate that.”
Alise stood up.
‘Well, I’ll leave you to it. I’ll leave you to deal with the bandits.”
Then she glanced at the magically bound bandits and turned to leave.
”Will you please wait?”
She was stopped from behind by Rolf.
Alise turned around.
‘Which way is Lady Alise going to go now?’
“To the Royal Capital of Merus.
“In that case, why don’t you come with us?”
“Will that really be ok?”
“‘Yes, Lady Arise is strong. From what I’ve seen, you’re stronger than the knights of the kingdom.
“I think you’re overrating me”.
In fact, Alise was so strong.
She was still a former chief of operations, she would have been usurped if she was weaker than a knight.
”It’s in the form of an escort, and the reward will be paid when we reach the royal capital”
“Well, you know what I mean.”
“Thank you. I look forward to working with you.”
“Well, it’s nice to meet you, too.”
“Okay, follow me, please.”
At Rolf’s request, she followed them into the carriage.
‘What about the fallen knights and bandits?’
”I’ve just sent out a message to the royal capital, so in a few hours, the country’s guards will be here to handle it.
As expected of the butler of the Marquis family.
He works fast and is very aware of the details.
“Then let’s get going.”
Under Rolf’s instructions, Alise also got into the carriage and the carriage left for the royal capital.
The carriage would take about three hours to get to the royal capital from here.
”It may be none of my business, but if you’re a marquis, you’d better hire a slightly better bodyguard.
“I don’t feel very flattered.”
Alise was constantly activating the presence detection skill.
From the window of the carriage, she saw a knight riding past on a horse, so he must have been headed to the scene of the fight with the bandits.
”I see it. That’s the royal capital.”
Sophie said, looking out the window.
‘It’s a relief to be up here. There’s no sign of trouble around.’
‘Well, that’s good to hear,’
A few demons showed their faces, but they pulled back when Alise turned her killing intent in their direction.
”Thank you for your help.”
They entered the royal capital through the gate for nobles.
When it came to the marquis’ house there seemed to be no need for a security check.
You should definitely stop by the mansion as well. I will give you your reward there.
Rolf said so, so Alise agreed.
in her situation, she’d take anything she could get.
Soon, the carriage stopped in front of the large mansion.
