Towards the War
The day to depart towards the war finally arrived, and it was time to leave the capital.
The men of Eternity’s Fangs were going to the frontlines with me. Together with us were Daisy, Louise, and Katherine, besides my two aunts.
They would serve as my personal guards during this expedition. This group could be considered my most trusted subordinates.
Beside them, another fifty thousand men were going to the war this time. They were the men that the nobles of the empire sent, and each one of them would follow my orders.
Our goal: To stop Alan’s rebellion and catch or kill him.
The morning of the day of the departure, I was at the entrance of the capital, bidding farewell to my loved ones.
After I bid farewell to Lina, Elene, and Hope, Dina approached me and grabbed my hands with a worried expression.
“Be careful.” She said.
I smiled softly and stroke her hair.
“Don’t worry, you know how powerful I am. Nothing will happen to me.”
“Claus…” Dina looked at me with a complicated expression.
How could she not know that I was lying?
After we fused our souls, we shared part of our memories, so she knew about the enemies that I could face this time.
Strong enemies, strong enough to destroy the world.
To be honest, Dina felt a bit anxious when she thought about the fact that I was about to face them.
But she knew that regardless of the risk, this was something that should be done.
For our future happiness, and for our eternal life together, we needed to defeat these enemies.
Seeing that I was determined to go, Dina took a deep breath before putting on a determined expression.
“Claus Quintin, as your empress, I order you to return safely.”
“As you wish, your majesty.” I smiled and bowed slightly, making Dina’s lips curve up.
Done with the farewells, it was time to depart.
But when I was about to leave, I noticed several familiar auras that should not be here among the people going to the war.
Alice was one of them, together with her butler Aaron, and her Knight, Hannah. However, after being slightly surprised, I realized their intention.
Most likely, Alice was the one in charge of the troops sent by earl Ferret, and buttle Aaron and Hannah came as her assistants.
However, besides them, there were another two people.
And they did not have any reason to be here.
No, I guess they have one, huh.
Smiling wryly, I walked in their direction.
There, I saw Louise talking to her mother, Mia, and at her sister, Claire, with an anxious expression.
“Mother, Claire, I told you that you can’t come with us. It will be dangerous.”
“I think I’m strong enough, Louise. You don’t need to worry about me.”
“Mother is right, sister. We are strong.”
“But mother, if you come… What if you…”
“I know what you are worried about, Louise.” Mia quickly cut Louise off before she finished speaking. “Don’t worry, I know what I can and what I can’t do. I won’t do anything silly even if I meet your father or your brother. I just… I just want to do my best.”
Louise’s expression turned complicated.
She knew what her mother meant. Despite how much her relationship with her husband and son had deteriorated, she still wanted to save them.
Just then, she noticed that I was nearby.
“Claus, you are here… Did you hear our conversation?”
“I did.” I sighed and looked at Mia. “Mother-in-law, are you sure about this?”
“I am, Claus. I must do this. Otherwise, I’ll regret it my entire life.”
“… You know that Earl Riea and his son are already beyond saving, right? The softest punishment will be lifetime imprisonment, and their likeliest punishment will be beheading.”
Mia bit her lips and looked at the ground with a sad expression.
Soon, though, her expression turned determined as she looked straight into my eyes.
“Even so, I don’t want to give up so easily.”
I looked at Mia and sighed.
In fact, it was not just her. I could see that although Claire and Louise had not said anything, they also wanted to try their best to save their father and brother.
In the end, blood was thicker than water. Despite everything that happened between them, the two girls were still worried about them.
I could only sigh with a bitter smile.
“Okay, Mia, Claire. You can come with us.”
“Really!?” Mia and Claire looked at me in excitement, and I nodded.
“Yes, but you will have to follow my orders strictly. If you don’t, I won’t hesitate to send the two of you back.”
“Thank you, Claus.”
“Hehe, brother-in-law is the best!”
Seeing the grateful smiles on Mia and Claire’s faces, I smiled as well.
Then, I turned around and kissed Louise’s lips.
“Don’t worry too much, my love. I will think about something. Now, go and get ready. We will depart in one hour.”
“Thank you, Claus… I love you.”
“I love you too.”
Once Mia, Louise, and Claire were gone, I smiled bitterly.
Sigh, so complicated.
Well, the reason I’m dealing with all this trouble was that I failed to control my lower body.
In the end, though, it’s just a bit troublesome. I don’t mind this little trouble when it comes to my lovers.
Compared to it, the two Immortals that I could face this time were much more troublesome.
I took a deep breath and exhaled. No matter what, I’m ready to face them.
One hour later, the army departed towards the Carmell Earldom to face the rebel army led by Alan Quintin.
The curtains to the battle between immortals were opening.
