“And I have an urgent matter to attend to, so I’m afraid I’ll have to leave.”
“It was a pleasure to see you here for a short moment. Then.”
“There’s nothing I can do about you being busy. I’m sorry, but I won’t hold you. We’ll see each other soon anyway.”
His tone of voice lowered slightly. The atmosphere shifted as the tone changed, even if it was the same informal speech. Palden moved to the side. Serdel passed him with as casual a look as possible. The back of her head stung a lot.
‘Let’s not look back. Let’s not look back.’
If their eyes met again, she felt like she’d be caught. Serdel’s steps became quicker.
As she walked away, Palden lifted his chin and stared through the back of her.
“Is that how she looks? Or has something changed? What a unique and interesting move following the breakup with Count Maient.”
He thought he had heard something wrong when he learned of her participation in the expedition through his aides not long ago. It was completely ridiculous. What is Count Robbesta thinking in allowing her to participate when she isn’t a great swordsman like Addis or has been trained from a young age like Redan?
He was irritated because he couldn’t figure out what the point was. He’d heard she approached Damon first, brought in the Marquis of Spendar, and provided numerous ideas about Elbash Forest, but he couldn’t believe it.

That is, until he saw her enter the gladiatorial arena alone, with only one servant and maid. For a brief moment, curiosity sparked. He had to do something, yet he turned around and followed her without hesitation. Because it was a VIP seat, the only thing he could see was the back of the seat. It was enough to sense the mood. He focused on her like that, sitting as slanted as he could.
‘It was unique.’
She was the only one in the gladiator who remained still when the entire audience enjoyed the fight passionately. When she put money on it, she was really relaxed. Even when she paid for the bet, she was different from the servant and maid who were making a fuss. She acted as though she knew what was going to happen next. She was very calm.
‘Maybe she has a good feeling. Or a good eye.’
‘The distribution was good.’
The bigger the game, the more people will be forced to abandon their instincts in such a hot environment. The thrill of touching a fortune. Only the strange idea that one’s eyes aren’t deceiving one. On the other hand, they are terrified of what will happen if they lose. Nobody knows, but there’s a f
