“Ah, well, the Emperor’s attitude has been a bit different from the prophecy, but I guess she’s convinced that things are still going to turn out the way they were prophesied.”
When he glanced at Cisen’s profile for a moment, she was still keeping her mouth shut.
“Your master has a lot to say to me, but she must be constrained by the Emperor’s restraints. He seems to like her very much.”
To be honest, he didn’t quite understand how Raniero fell for Angelica so hard.
Cisen muttered in a dry voice.
“That’s why she sent me to you…”
“I’m sure she’s in a hurry because communication between Actilus and here is difficult. I also agree that we should talk as much as possible while we’re here.”
If they were planning to leave the Empire, and Eden was destined to be a colleague, it made sense.
Cisen stared blankly at Eden, still reeling from the shock of being confronted with unexpected truths all at once.
Then, he said one last shocking thing to her.
“Tell her that she doesn’t have to worry too much about that. I’m going to Actilus.”

While everyone was busy preparing for the return, Cisen, with a dark expression, quietly approached me and delivered me something. It was a piece of paper. It seemed to have been given by Eden.
I lowered my voice and asked.
“Did you deliver everything, even the money?”
Cisen nodded with a pale face.
“…I have heard of the prophecy, Your Majesty.”
I knew at once what the ‘prophecy’ meant. It must have been a word Eden brought out to make her understand. It seemed that he had acted somewhat arbitrarily in the process of persuading Cisen, but this was fine.
“What about the contents of prophecy?”
“Your Majesty is in danger…”
“That’s all you need to know. Then, you’ll understand my decision.”
I threw my gaze at Raniero, who was ordering something from the other side, and he also glanced this way for a moment.
If I had been talking to a man, he would’ve come over and interrupted right away, but he didn’t care, like he was relieved to see that I was just having a chat with Cisen. It seemed like it was a good choice to position her in the middle like this.
When I took my eyes away from Raniero, at that time, Cisen hesitated and spoke.
“The blank book Your Majesty had given me…”
As expected, it appeared to be a blank book to Cisen as well.
“Because it’s blank, ‘he’ doesn’t know the exact meaning…”
It was blank, even for him?
I was a little taken aback by her words, not expecting that it would be blank for Eden as well. Ah, what is going on? I thought the possessor would be able to see everything…?
While I was stumped, Cisen asked another question.
“And, if you’ve been to the old sanctuary, he asked if Your Majesty saw the door in the library.”
I felt a little dumbfounded.
Even though I’d been going to the old sanctuary for about a week now, I hadn’t seen anything like a door in the great library at all. Was I too focused on the bookshelves to notice the surrounding structure?
Just when I thought that might be the case, Cisen added.
“It’s a very conspicuous door…”
I shook my head with a confused face.
“No, I didn’t see it.”
She nodded before replying.
“I was told that might be the case.”
…Just as Eden couldn’t see the letters in the book, could I not notice the existence of the door?
It was very significant.
Not knowing how to interpret this, my head was empty. At the same time, Cisen also had a complicated expression on her face. She gazed at me, then when Sylvia called from the other side, she said her greetings and stepped away.
After glancing around, I opened the paper Cisen had handed me.
It was a piece of paper that had fallen out of an old book as there were traces of being bound with thread. At the top of the page, there was someone’s handwriting.
It was probably Eden’s handwriting.
I hurriedly read the text on the page.
The writings on the back explained why Eden had picked up this page.
A rare list of side effects sparsely known among ‘shamans’ was written in rather illegible handwriting. It was as if someone had taken notes in a book.
And among them…
…There was really something like this.
Eden’s guess and mine met in the middle. It was his idea that forbidden sorcery was the trigger. And if that was the case, it was my opinion that we’d got here as a side effect of something rather than an objective itself.
I glanced down at the paper.
Still, this was the only page I had…
It didn’t even mention what kind of spell we came here from.
I didn’t think long about it. It was because it was almost time to return to Actilus. Hiding the piece of paper under my clothes, I prepared to leave as if nothing had happened.
