Now they were stuck at the checkpoint to enter the royal capital.
As expected of a royal capital, it had a tight security system in place.
“Here you go”
Erich presented a handwritten document signed by the Marquis and a servant’s notebook.
By the way, this servant handbook was issued by the state to servants of the nobility and royalty.
It was not something that could be forged so easily.
“Yes, I’ll verify it”
The document signed by the Marquis stated that he was temporarily lending his carriage to the S-rank certified adventurer Alise.
“Excuse me, but could that lady also present her ID?”
The gatekeeper asked Alise to present her identification as well.
Alise took out her jet-black guild card and the card with the family crest of the Marquis from the inner pocket of the coat and presented it to the gatekeeper.
“I’m sorry! Please go ahead.”
The gatekeeper saluted vigorously.
Then the carriage began to move slowly again.
As it is, the carriage continues to move towards the aristocratic sector as it passed through the centre of the royal capital.
When the gate of the mansion owned by Alice was opened by the guards, the carriage stopped in the yard of the mansion.
“Thank you for your hard work. We have arrived.”
Erich said from the coachman’s seat
Alise got out of the carriage with Erich’s help.
“Well, I’ll leave you to it.”
“Yes, thank you very much. I hope to see you again”
Alise shook hands with Erich, who had shared her journey to the labyrinth city and back.
“I am honoured,”
Erich sat down on the coach’s chariot and moved the carriage and disappeared into the aristocratic sector.
Alise opened the front door and stepped inside the mansion.
Immediately, she was greeted by Rogel and Cecile.
”Welcome back, miss.”
The mansion was the same as always but neatly cleaned to the nooks and crannies.
Rogel’s workmanship was the real deal.
It’s strange because it had only been a week or so since she had owned the mansion, but it felt nostalgic.
“How was the labyrinth city?”
“Pretty good, it was quite an interesting city,”
This time she went there on business, however she also thought it would be an interesting city to go in her leasurely time.
Everything was new to Alise, who had only been in this country for a short time.
She met new people, and was able to fight strong magical beasts.
It was worth it.
”It’s been a long time since I’ve been there too.”
Rogel narrowed his eyes and said with a gentle expression.
From what Alise heard, he hadn’t been out of the royal capital for a while.
Well, it seemed to be a normal part of being a servant.
