Episode 99 Provocation / Linnecarlo
When we arrived at the Mardan base, Arthur and Emina were placed in an underground prison, and I was taken to another place. I was taken to a room at the top of a high tower, where I could see far into the distance and have a good view of the city.
“What are you going to do, bring me to the top of this tower alone?”
“Princess Linnecarlo has been given a special seat to watch the rebels come to her aid, only to be cruelly defeated in return, so please enjoy it from here.”
“You have bad taste, Orlea…….Now I understand why I was never attracted to you.”
When I said this, Orlea’s expression changed drastically, his face became grim and he began to get irritated.
“No! That’s not true, Linnecarlo! You just didn’t see it that way! There’s nothing wrong with me!“
“There’s nothing attractive about you, I’ve just noticed that.”
“Me……unattractive……commander Cruz said I was the best man she’d ever seen!”
“I don’t care what Cruz says, you’re not attractive enough to be my husband! I assure you of that!”
I don’t know why I made such a provocative statement, but I don’t care.
“No, no, no……Linnecarlo! Do you realize the position you’re in? I’ve been given permission by Commander Cruz to do whatever I want with you! I can strip you of your clothes and force you to be mine!”
“Hmmm, that’s funny, you think I’m going to be yours by force, I’m sorry but I won’t be yours no matter what!”
“Hmm, interesting, let’s see if that’s really true.”
Then Orlea approached me – despite my expression, my body trembled a little……I bit my bottom lip and tried to stop the trembling, I didn’t want to show myself as a weak woman to such a man……
“General Orlea! An enemy magicraft is approaching Mardan base!”
Hearing this, Orlea released my hand from his grasp and walked out onto the small balcony to see the approaching enemy magicraft.
“Only one magicraft? I’m sure it’s just a diversion of the enemy, so why did you send all the ambushers out?”
“If the enemy comes, we have orders to hit them with all our forces at once.”
“That’s when the enemy army shows up! What were you thinking, overreacting like that against a single magicraft?”
One magicraft……those words stuck with me…….No way……I only know of one person who would venture into an enemy base with just one magicraft…….I thought of his face…….I don’t know why, but thinking of his face calms me down and takes my mind off my bad feelings…….I wanted to go out on the balcony right away to check it out……but I felt like if the magic machine that was approaching this base was the national treasure of our country……my mind would be trapped by something.
After a great mental struggle, I slowly stepped forward……and I walked out onto the balcony……I didn’t care what happened anymore, I slowly looked up and saw the scene outside.
A large army from the Mardan base was rushing to a single magicraft……far away but recognizable…….That was definitely Viktor.
I didn’t realize I was crying until the tears started to fall down my cheeks and onto the back of my hands……Why am I crying?……I’m not sad at all……On the contrary, my chest was heaving in a strange way, and I was even smiling.
“What are you crying about, Linnecarlo, are you out of your mind?”
“Orlea, I told you that I had no lover, but that was a lie. I have one now, the love of my life.”
“What the fuck! Who the hell is that?”
“See, that magicraft……my beloved is the one riding it.”
“It’s that magicraft…….Hahahahaha! Linnecarlo, your loved one is unfortunately going to be gone from this world, look at that scene……even you on Odin can’t do anything in that situation.”
“It’s true that even I, riding Odin, would have difficulty getting through that situation, but you don’t know that the rider of that magicraft is the man who defeated me while riding Odin…….”
“You’re lying……you’re lying to provoke me, Linnecarlo! You’re one of the Twelve Heavenly Masters, and you lost…….”
No, it’s true. He’s stronger than I am…..and far more capable……than you, Orlea, just the kind of man I deserve to love!”
“Gggg……okay, I’ll test that story myself to see if it’s true! Hey, get my Gadelure ready at once.”
“Is General Orlea going to be there?”
“Yes, go quickly.”
“Linnecarlo, watch the end of your lover from here, I will tear him to pieces!”
Unfortunately, in the back of my mind, I knew that was impossible.
