taken in by a prestigious house after leaving a notorious one to become a foster daughter… I’m sure she’s manipulating him and they’re talking about getting married.
I won’t allow her to be happy like that.”

Elena gnaws on her fingernails while thinking.

She wants to somehow knock that irritating Linea down to the bottom of the earth.

“If I can’t get married… No, if we could just get rid of the thing in the first place…”

However, Elena knows that she can’t take matters into her own hands.

While thinking about whether there was any way, a servant with brown hair entered the room.
He is Dior, who has served for many years and is a few years younger than Elena.

He was about to be abandoned by my father because, but because he didn’t like his face.
but when I liked his face so much that I took him as my own and he loved me very much.

“Elena-sama, I’m back.”

“Is there anything you can report?”

Elena asks with a sigh.
Dior has been searching for Albert’s house for a long time.

Mainly because I wanted to know if Albert was interested in me or if I could turn Albert around.

But in the past few months, there has been no good news.
I thought this time would be the same.

“That is… Elena-sama.
I have something I would like to tell you.”

“What is it?”

“Someone from the Count Herkuvis house has been coming and going in the western forest of the capital for a while now, and it seems that person has also been coming and going from the Count Elvasti house.”

Elena frowned.

“To the Count Elvasti house? Did you track them?”

“Of course.”

Dior nods.

“I met Count Elvasti… apparently he was talking about something that had to do with the incident three years ago.”

“Three years ago…”

That was the year the Michelia Count’s house fell into ruin.

To put it another way, it was when the Count Allerid family was crushed by the Count Elvasti and Duke Augren families.

“Apparently, the Count Herkuvis family secretly acquired that item three years ago in relation to that incident.”

“…demon beast.”

“Yes, maam.”

Dior bows to Elena.

A demon beast is a beast with greater and higher combat ability than a human.

Elena does not know why such a thing is born, but it is said that demon beasts are secretly collected on the other side of the world and used for various plots.

A demon beast does not easily die when stabbed with a sword.
It takes a considerable amount of time and many sacrifices to defeat it, or magic must be used.

In any case, a demon beast existed on the land of the late Count Allerid family three years ago.

“Surely… that means the Count Elvasti family was being supplied with what was needed?”

Demon beasts require special feed to maintain or tame, and it is unlikely that the Herkuvis household, rumored to be in financial difficulty, can continue to provide it.

“That’s why… he borrowed money from the Count’s household to continue your engagement with Linea.”

Rather, it is likely that they received things related to demon beasts under the pretense of borrowing money.

Elena finally understood why Count Herkuvis was determined to continue the engagement with Linea at any cost.

“In that case, there is a way.”

Elena plans in her head.

A plan to save Albert.
