What happened to him, Bane couldn’t understand. A terrible shock wave had engulfed his body and heat had burnt his skin.

It all started with the boy who came in with a sword suddenly.

Just being attacked like that. Right. This happened because he was careless. If he had been vigilant, such a surprise attack wouldn’t have shocked him.

He raised the aura and wrapped it around his body to maximize his senses. To firmly grasp the opponent, the staggering body depended on the right leg to stand still.

It was impossible to attack with his injuries. So he would think about counterattacking.

“It is already done.”

The voice of a young boy.

Bane tried to answer “No” to the voice. It wasn’t for this that he sharpened his sword, it wasn’t to serve that disgusting Viscount.

“Close your eyes. I will make it less painful.”

Jamie said so to the man. Bane felt like this kid was looking down at him. Why was he looking down?

He was already getting ready to counterattack…

‘Huh?’

He was obviously on his legs to keep himself balanced. He accurately grasped the opponent and was preparing for an attack.

But now.

He couldn’t help but think that it was his mind playing tricks on him, he couldn’t sense anything.

“Your head must have taken a hit. Tch.”

Jamie clicked his tongue and held out his hand.

Fireball.

Bane tried to shout ‘No’, but he couldn’t do anything. There was no strength in his body.

In that way, Bane turned to ashes.

“W-who are you?”

Alex, who witnessed it, wasn’t sure how to respond.

An Expert, whom anyone would have a tough time with. One surprise attack with incredible skill. Especially that young look, it was impossible for a child to have such skills.

However, one name came to his mind. Jamie Welton, the genius who had been making an uproar.

‘But the hair color…’

Emerald.

The symbol of the Welton family.

The boy’s soft hair was a bright emerald color. As he thought that, Alex was shocked.

“Jamie Welton!”

“Don’t make a fuss.”

Jamie stopped him right there and looked at Venna as he said.

“Take them out.”

“Then Master?”

“The trash needs to be cleaned up. Fortunately, it is combustible trash, so there won’t be a need to dispose of it.”

A man, and two knights.

The skills of the knights were shabby compared to the expert.

“Then I will leave first.”

“… will he be alright?”

“Don’t talk and follow me. We will only get in his way.”

Venna led Alex to the exit.

Jamie who looked at them turned.

The two knights were looking at him with a tense expression and behind them, the fat noble was slowly stepping back.

“W-what is this? Do-do you know who I am?”

“Who are you?”

“I- I am the Viscount Robert Ivan, one of the members of the Union! Have you heard the name?”

“Ah. Union?”

“Yes, yes. If you run away now, I’ll pretend like I didn’t see you. So…”

“But didn’t you hear that? Did your ears get fat too?”

Jamie smiled looking at Ivan with a frown.

“Come on, my Lord. That boy, We- Welton family…”

“… huh?”

“Nice to meet you. Viscount Ivan. I am Jamie Welton, the eldest child of Count Welton, Lord of Haiss in the eastern part of the Kingdom.”

Jamie introduced himself, however it was full of teasing and playfulness.

“Even though it is clear and known, not everyone can know, according to the law, even nobles can be punished with severe punishment for indulging in slavery. And you have done a pretty daring thing.”

“T-that…”

Ivan couldn’t get angry despite the young child looking at him with a teasing expression.

Welton family. One of the two largest families of the Seldam Kingdom and a Sword Master. Count Welton, the head of it, was the only Sword Master in this kingdom and his wife was the daughter of the great Bell family.

And their successor, who turned 8 this year was a genius in magic and known to be gifted.

‘T-the kid in front is…’

Viscount Ivan was also a member of the Union which had a strong influence in the southern part, but that was it.

He couldn’t compare his position with that of the Welton family.

If this kid was from the Welton family, then his current position could be in danger.

So he decided.

“A lie, that is a lie!”

“Hmm.”

“That little one is playing tricks on us! Kill him! Kill him! If he dies, the mouth disappears too!”

Jamie smiled at Ivan, who kept blabbering on with a confused face.

“I like the combustible trash.”

“Kill it!

Ivan pushed his knights. But the knights didn’t move.

“You two seem fine.”

Jamie smiled at the knights and nodded.

One of the knights gulped and said.

“Thank you.”

Having said that, he grabbed the other knight and stepped back.

“You! You men! You were hired by me!”

“We will not speak about this.”

The knights pulled away from Ivan and told Jamie not to worry.

“Thank you.”

But he couldn’t let them go. There was no intention of harming them. Instead, he decided to manipulate their memory.

Jamie snapped his finger. And the knights who were walking halted.

“I wasn’t here and in your memories, Only Viscount Ivan’s sins remain. Please work hard.”

“… yes.”

“… do not worry.”

The knights nodded and went away.

“Look here! Look here! You bastards!”

Viscount Ivan tried to hold them, but it was impossible for him to catch two young knights.

“P-please… Please don’t leave me…”

“You are alone, trash.”

Ivan looked back. Darkness prowls around the narrow hallway.

“I was going to burn you.”

Jamie smiled with his gleaming purple eyes in the dark.

“It’s been a while since I haven’t fed them.”

Fortunately, that one wasn’t a picky eater. Rather than trash, he could be used in better ways.

“It is your honor to be his nourishment.”

“Sp-spare me!!”

“You will be eaten.”

[Leviathan]

“Kuaaaak!”

The screams didn’t go past the basement.


When he was done, Venna and Alex were waiting for him with the elves.

“Here?”

“What just happened?”

Jamie immediately asked Venna to explain the situation. In his brain, it made no sense for Venna to be in this situation.

“I didn’t know where master went… so I tried heading back. But I heard screaming from afar.”

And Venna explained how she met Alex and tried to rescue the elves.

Jamie heard it all and said.

“Then that is a Frontier too.”

“Frontier?”

At the word Frontier, Venna looked at Alex.

When Jamie knew his identity right away, Alex couldn’t hide his confusion.

“H-how did you-?”

“It isn’t that amazing, a guess?”

“Guess?”

“A joke, don’t be so surprised. I was with your comrades.”

“Comrades? Where are they now?”

“Probably here.”

Jamie didn’t have a hard time coming to Venna as she was inside Gremia for a long time.

At that moment, Alex’s crystal ball rang.

-Alex! Are you alright?

“I am fine. More than that, captain.”

Alex looked at the boy who was smiling and took a deep breath before saying,

“I am with Jamie Welton now.”

-Come here right away.

After a while, Siegfried with an annoyed expression appeared with the Frontiers.

As soon as Braha saw her fallen people, she ran to them.

“… disgusting men.”

She had a bitter expression as she wiped the faces of the elves who were asleep. Just looking at them she knew how harshly they were treated. She knew how humans trained the elves, but this was even worse.

The elves would be in pain for a long time. Izaya looked at Alex and then at the pink-haired girl and then asked Alex,

“What happened?”

Alex saw that Ramu was on Izaya’s shoulders, unconscious, he didn’t even bother asking how he was in that state.

There must have been a reason and he knew they would speak of it later.

“We were lucky.”

“Right. But why is Mr. Han here… ? Wasn’t he supposed to wait on that mountain?”

“It just happened that way.”

Han smiled, scratching his dark hair.

Alex was tasked with locating the elves, so he didn’t know what happened on the other side.

Meanwhile, Jamie Welton said that, He was with his comrades.

“I’ll explain later.”

Alex nodded at Izaya’s words.

Alex decided to not ask more since his mission was done.

Siegfried, who was watching that, asked.

“Rather than that, young lord.”

“… go on.”

“Who is that girl?”

He looked at the pink-haired girl next to Alex.

“Seems to me like she knows you.”

“I will tell you later.”

“Young lord has a lot to say to me.”

Siegfried smiled, and Jamie awkwardly smiled too.

If he had known that he would get caught like this, he would have just told the man everything from the beginning.


Braha looked at Alex and sighed.

“You must have been through a lot.”

To which Alex shook his head and said,

“I was able to rescue the elves thanks to her. If I was alone, I would have died. So thank that woman.”

“I don’t know who you are, but thank you for saving my people.”

At Braha’s thanks, Venna shook her head.

“Ah- no. I haven’t done anything either. If it wasn’t for master, I would have been stuck there.”

In fact, if Jamie hadn’t come back, there was a good chance of Venna being captured by the knight called Bane.

[Even if it wasn’t going to be an easy fight. Winning was difficult to see.]

Philion too said that.

It was such a strong knight. And only because Jamie was strong that he fell.

“No. I just want to thank you for stepping up to help our peo…”

Braha who was smiling and thanking went still. At the sudden change, Venna was a bit taken aback.

“Do I have something on my face?”

“N-Not, by any chance…”

“Huh?”

“Valkyrie?”

The forest fairies recognized each other.

Braha was a pure-blooded elf born in the forest. Because of that, she recognized Venna’s face.

“Why is a Valkyrie here?”

“Uh…”

When Venna panicked, everyone turned to her. So did Jamie.

Jamie approached, trying to avoid the weird situation, but what Braha said shocked him.

“You… a princess?”

Jamie frowned at those words, when Philion said.

[It has to be that. When I saw that reddish hair I roughly expected it, Venna you are of the queen’s blood.]

Standing in the middle, Venna wasn’t sure how to react.
