In the previous chapter, we saw that Ersia was completely calm but she lost her temper when she got to her room. She got the rest of her hair cut to a similar length. To cheer her up, the pope came to her room. While she slept in his arms, he cut off the remaining hair.
Ersia wanted to go home the next day so the pope arranged everything for her. But just as he was about to leave, the prince stopped him. He says she shouldn’t leave the house. Or he will complicate her life.
He warns her not to put her trust in anything or anyone. To prove his point, he burned her carriage. Fortunately, the pope was prepared for this and thought carefully about it. The Pope asked Ersia about her family as they were returning to her home.
The Fezzentera family, according to Ersia, was an important part of the kingdom. Their family members handle tasks that other lords would be too shy to undertake. Underground transactions and similar activities.
Aslia informed Erica that she had previously informed him that she could not give him anything because she was neither the crown prince’s consort nor the messenger of the gods. Erica informed him that she no longer felt that way. She said that he was not interested in a woman living in the shadows but in the information she had accumulated to become the crown prince’s consort.
It would be a completely different scenario if she held a sword instead of a flower, and her ability to use supernatural powers would only be successful if she had faith in God. Aslia didn’t know how long it would last, and he also didn’t know if that power would overshadow her.
Erica isn’t sure what he means by that, but she says that she seems to have trouble speaking up and that she also has a lot of feelings for him that she doesn’t usually show.
Erica asked Aslia about his purpose in entering her room. Aslia surmised that Erica was probing him too much because she had trouble remembering what happened the night before.
He asked about Ercia’s family name. She told him that her family called her by many names or by her first name. She said her nickname was Cia in response to His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s question.
He told Ercia that they would soon become a family and He also wanted to call her by name. His calling Ercia’s name angered her.
While at work, the crown prince received a message from his butler that the emperor was looking for him. Hearing that, the crown prince felt uncomfortable because he knew the reason for his call.
Erica informed him that she was no longer weak. Aslia told her he was going, but before he left, he gave her the sword, which fit her better than he anticipated. Erica said that she wanted to visit the duke’s house and inform him that there was a request.
Aslia assured her that he would prepare the carriage and they would travel together from that location. Erica tells him that she no longer believes in intangible things like love; therefore, she wanted to make sure that there was no love in the contract.
The things she learned in the previous chapter are now more familiar to her. She didn’t know what to do with what she didn’t know and what she had just discovered, so this was a real shock.
But in the previous chapter, she wasn’t really worried about that, and after being relieved of her responsibilities, she was able to enjoy a bit of freedom.
On the way, she runs into her brother, who seems to have become young again. Not in terms of age, but in the most recent chapter, he became even less mature for unknown reasons.
