120 It“s because he is Souta Ieshi
Souta used [Light Heal] spell on Yuko's wound.
While he was cleaning Yuko's wounds, Souta heard footsteps coming from behind. He didn't need to turn around to know who is it.
Souta opened his mouth and asked, "What is it?"
"The one you beat is the son of an influential man in other city," Lumilia said. "The news already spread out and everyone knew that a man with a Red Fur Bear was the one who did it."
"I don't care about who's that man. Even if he's a king, I still beat the shit out of them. All of them are the same to me." Souta replied to her.
"They'll come back you know," Lumilia said to him.
"Tell them I'm looking forward to it. Yeah, I can't wait for it." Souta grinned as there was a chance that it could trigger a quest. He's truly looking forward to them coming back to him.
"That man is my fiance..." Lumilia revealed some information to him.
"I see..." Souta replied without turning around to look at her. On the surface, he looks calm but deep inside Souta was shocked by what he heard.
That man was her fiance? Too much coincidence was happening recently.
Lumilia just looked at Souta's back. She couldn't guess what was on his mind.
Suddenly, a knight approach them and said, "Young miss, the lord wanted you to come and meet him."
Lumilia looked at the knight and said, "Understood, go tell my father that I will go there."
"Yes, young miss." The knight bowed before her before he left to tell Lumilia's father what she said.
Lumilia looked at the knight before she shifted her attention to Souta. She opened her mouth and said, "I'll go now. I still have something I need to do."
Souta turned his head and looked at her. He asked, "Do you want me to escort you?"
"No, just continue cleaning Yuko's wound. I'll just ask Brianna and the rest." Lumilia shook her head and said to him.
"Are you sure? You know, I'm currently one of your guards." Souta asked her just to be sure. Lumilia hired him, so he thought that he should do something for her.
"Hm. I'm sure." Lumilia smiled before she turned around and walked away.
Souta stood up and looked at her back. The corner of his mouth curved into a grin.
This pattern... The fiance, the father, and the nobles. Souta was starting to understand what's happening in this mansion. All of them were connected to each other but there's still some unknown piece to complete the puzzle.
In other words, Lumilia came back here to meet her fiance. But why? This timing... Is it about the incident in the Ladros City? Have they already finished the investigation and identified the corpses of those assassins.
If that's the case then Lumilia's father already knew that she was the target of a certain noble from the country of Melosa.
If Lumilia's father really knew about it then it's natural that he called Lumilia back to the mansion.
But... Why is the fiance coming here at this time? Is it a coincidence? No, at the very least Souta didn't think that it was a coincidence.
Then, there's a possibility that the other nobles were moving as well. From the information Souta had, he knew that a lot of noble was going to visit Asvares Mansion because of some unknown reason, and that reason was Souta wanted to know.
Nevertheless, they were going to stripped Lumilia's freedom out of her. That's what Souta could guess and she will not be able to go back to Ladro Institute.
'If I could trigger a quest then I will surely...' Souta thought and another idea comes into his mind. From Lumilia's action before, Souta guessed that she doesn't want to get married to that noble. If she loves him then she would be concerned about his well being.
"Okay, I will talk to her later," Souta said with a smile. "Hahaha, there will be a lot of drama in this quest of mine. Well, that doesn't matter as I will get skill points."
Lumilia was wearing a blue dress while walking in a huge hall inside the mansion. In front of her was Jusmin who was guiding her and behind her was Brianna and Jane who was guarding her.
Soon, they arrived in front of a huge door. The door wasn't an ordinary one. It was made from rare materials and the design was carved by famous sculptors. A mere tier 1 spell wouldn't leave a scratch to this door.
Jusmin stepped forward and gently knocked on the side of the door.
"My lord, young miss has arrived," Jusmin said in a polite tone through the door.
No one said anything. Everything was silent at this time.
After a few moments, a metallic sound echoed in the door as it slowly opened.
Lumilia turned her head and looked at Brianna and Jane. She said, "Wait for me, I'll talk to my father."
"Understood." Brianna and Jane said at the same time.
Jusmin took a glance at Lumilia with a worried expression. Lumilia smiled at her in response before Lumilia went inside the room.
Inside the room, Lumilia saw two people sitting in the chair from the opposite side of the table.
The man on the left side was a middle-aged man with long blue hair and blue eyes. He was Lumilia's father, Ursus Von Asvares.
While the man on the right side was a chubby middle-aged man with short blonde hair and yellow color eyes. He was exuding a fearful aura around him. He was none other than the head of the Vidrato Family, one of the influential families in the neighboring city of Gripin.
The two men turned their heads when Lumilia entered the room. The two of them observed her for a while before Ursus, Lumilia's father, opened his mouth and said, "This is Gregory Vidrato, the head of the Vidrato Family. Also, he's the father of your fiance, Lumilia."
"Good day, father and lord Vidrato." Lumilia greeted them in a polite tone.
"Nn." Gregory nodded his head while looking at Lumilia.
"Currently, your fiance couldn't come here because of some accident," Ursus said.
"Yeah, some pretentious adventurer dared to harm the next heir of the Vidrato family," Gregory said in annoyance as he tapped his finger on top of the table. "Really, those adventurers are like that of the barbarian race. All of them are bold enough not knowing who they are offending."
Lumilia just looked at them and didn't say anything. She knew the one who did that to the heir of Vidrato family.
Ursus looked at Lumilia and said, "Lumilia, I've heard that one of the adventurers that you hired fit the description of the man who assaulted your fiance."
Lumilia subconsciously gulped when she heard her father mention it.
"Really?!" Gregory stood up when heard it. He looked at Lumilia as if he was eager to know if it was true or not.
Lumilia tried to think of a way to hide the truth but then she understood that she couldn't hide it anymore. The knights were patrolling around the mansion from time to time and it's natural that they will saw Souta and the Gale Group.
'If he pushed me to the corner, then I have no choice but to reveal it.'
She took a deep breath and nodded her head.
"That's right. He's a tamer of the Red Fur Bear but I know that the one who started it was Ostar." Lumilia said to them.
Ostar was the name of Lumilia's fiance, the heir of the Vidrato family.
"Bring him to me immediately, I've got to teach that pretentious adventurer some lesson!" Gregory's aura exploded when he heard Lumilia confirmed it. His aura shook the entire room.
Lumilia felt being pressured just by standing in front of the lord of Vidrato family. Although Gregory looked like a fat merchant he was still a powerful man that was currently leading the whole Vidrato family.
"You can't..." Lumilia said while gritting her teeth.
"Why?!" Gregory shouted and it shook the whole room once again. The mana that he was releasing was reaching its limit.
"Calm down, that's my daughter you're talking to." Ursus looked at Gregory and said. He slightly released his own mana to counter the mana Gregory was releasing.
Gregory looked at Ursus before he sat down. He said, "I'm sorry for the sudden outburst. It's just that man harm my son."
"Yeah, I understand it." Ursus nodded his head in understanding. He then looked at his daughter and asked, "So can you tell us the reason why you said that words?"
Lumilia took a deep breath while she closed her eyes. After a few moments, she opened her eyes and look at them with a serious expression.
Lumilia slowly opened her mouth and said, "It's because he is Souta Ieshi from Mage Class 1-B."
