I Stole the Child of My War-Mad Husband - Chapter 5
‘It would be nice if the hostility toward me would be lowered by this incident.’
With such worries, I handed over the contract.
The two men looked suspicious of me to the end, and I deliberately left the office with confident expressions.
And after a while, it was heard that Rupert had dispatched some members of the ‘Knights of the Raven’ to search the area I was talking about as promised.
The Knights of the Raven was a place where Rupert picked knights only for his skills.
Thanks to that many strong knights gathered, the skill of the knights was counted as one of the best in the empire.
And the Knights of the Raven, famous for their pride as high as their reputation, complained about sudden orders.
“Why are we suddenly ordered to investigate in such a periphery, Sir?”
The commander of the Knights, Bert, responded calmly to the voice of his men.
“Isn’t it natural that this is the master’s command? Sir Laurent, be careful with your mouth.
Laurent, a young knight who speaking out for no reason, pouted his mouth. He was still in his late teens and was the youngest in the Knights division.
“But I know everything. I heard this is not in the name of the master, but in the name of his wife…”
Bad comments about Rupert’s wife, Noel Ainel, were also popular in the Knights Templar.
The chances for the knights to face Noel in person were few, but the rumors heard through employees were terrible.
It was heard that most recently, it was rumored that a maid’s back was whipped for causing her hair to get tangled.
For this reason, there was no one who liked Noel even within the Knights Templar.
Even so, it was the master’s wife. That’s why the knights couldn’t speak carelessly.
In the end, Laurent’s senior, Hilys, who was next to him stopped the youngest’s grumble.
“Sir Laurent, be careful with your mouth and know the virtues of the knight. Don’t make fun of a Lady.”
“We are the only ones here anyway.”
“Still, you have to be careful what you say.”
It was very unfair for Laurent when a senior just blocked his mouth.
“But there is no part of our master is lacking, why is he listening to his wife’s ridiculous request-“
Eventually, Bert warned a little.
Laurent closed his mouth at the commander’s short but cold call.
Hilys looked at his junior with a ‘look at it’ look.
“Now, Sir Laurent, I want you to emulate Sir Aren over there. Even though he joined the Templars recently, he is very calm. He can follow orders without complaining, that is a true Knight.”
At that time, Aren, who had only been listening to their conversation, stopped his feet.
At the same time, a little husky voice expressed his displeasure.
“Here, it looks like something weird.”
With a neat face, Aren looked straight at the commander.
Bert, who received his gaze, nodded.
“Yes, something is weird.”
“On the map, I know this is the place that my mother said. But…”
The surroundings were quiet, and the flow of air was strange.
Aren, who got off the horse, tapped the dry ground.
“Sir Aren, what are you doing?”
“The sound is strange.”
Without paying attention to the doubts of his colleagues, Aren tapped the ground with a sword.
“There seems to be space down here.”
The average knight thought that was absurd. But that was something pointed out by Aren, who had very sensitive ears among knights.
Laurent, who followed Aren several times, looked confused.
“Oh, I don’t know.”
Then, Aren glanced at the ground where Laurent was standing.
“Sir Laurent, let’s swing the sword with magic under your feet.”
“Pardon? What do you do on the ground… Ah! I know.”
Immediately, Laurent put the magic power on the sword and put it down to the ground with all his might.
The ground rang with strong power.
Laurent looked bewildered at the dug ground.
“Sir Aren, nothing has changed-ah ah ah!”
At the moment, the ground he was standing on had collapsed.
Laurent just fell down.
Ignoring the gazes of his surprised colleagues, Aren jumped down into the hole where Laurent had fallen embarrassingly.
“Aren, he looks pretty on the outside but he is so unique.”
Mumbling like that, the other knights went down abruptly.
The knights had no other choice but to come down half-heartedly.
They walked tiredly, but they were surprised to see the sight in front of them that suddenly appeared.
Under the ground, in an empty space, the bones of a huge dragon retained their original skeleton.
The total area of the dragon’s bones was so huge that even ten adults could not cover them all.
And under the bones were piled up full of gold and silver treasures and all sorts of precious things.
Perhaps this great dragon was dead sitting on gold and silver treasures. It was a characteristic of a greedy race.
“This, what the hell is this?”
All of the knights were amazed at the sight they saw for the first time in their life.
Aren, the calmest man, slowly looked around the bone.
“It is a dragon’s tomb.”
“Dra… dragon’s tomb?”
“So, isn’t this a historical site?”
“Can we touch it?”
Aren laughed little at the unfamiliar reaction of his colleagues.
“I do not know.”
He glanced at the floor, and after a while, he picked up a small gold coin that was rolling on the floor.
“I’m not sure, but at least this time.”
At the same time, Aren flipped and bounced the coin with his finger. The gold coin flashed and drew a parabolic line.
“It looks like master’s wife was right.”
A small coin settled on the back of Aren’s hand.
This time, the knights had no choice but to nod their heads.
On that day, the Knights of the Raven discovered the ‘Dragon’s Tomb’ where the condition was intact.
And this news was reported to Rupert in no time.
Time has passed since I stamped the contract with Rupert.
As expected, news came that the “Dragon’s Tomb” was found in the land where the investment was made.
Dragons usually piled up treasure and died, and the remains were also precious.
In other words, it means that the jackpot appeared in the land I invested in.
And I took the money that was exactly five times the amount I borrowed and put it on the desk in the office.
Gold and silver treasures sounded heavy.
It was very hard, but I was proud of myself without showing off.
“Now, here it is!”
At this time, Rupert’s expression was quite visible.
At least it wasn’t the face of a man who could be called a ‘demon’ on the battlefield.
“How? Do you like it? Do you have anything to tell me now?”
I remembered the promise he made before.
[Sure, you’ve hurt my honor with ridiculous speculation, so I will wait for the moment you will apologize very politely when the truth is revealed!]
[If your words are true, I am willing to do so.]
I remember very clearly.
‘Now, I look forward to his very polite apology.’
I was happy just to imagine it.
Forgetting that he was a man who might kill me sometime later, I made a confident expression with my arms folded.
“What do you want? If you want a new dress or jewelry, contact the dressing room.”
This man is really! Have you forgotten your appointment already?
“I don’t want that kind of thing.”
“…Then what is it?”
That’s it, of course.
“I told you last time.”
I spit out again and again.
There was a slight embarrassment on his face.
“You have to keep your promises. Although it looks like you have never done an apology once.”
“I… haven’t done it before.”
How badly have you been living?
“That’s a great opportunity, everyone has the first time. Try it now.”
His face, which had always shown a rational and cold expression, looked confused now.
Thanks to that, I felt a strange feeling of satisfaction inside.
Excited I urged my husband.
“Come on, hurry up. You suspected an affair and defamed your wife, right?
Rupert spit out reluctantly.
He opened his mouth very slowly.
“All that doubted on you-“
I kept nodding my head.
