I'm Not Interested In The Main Characters - Chapter 31
Translator and Editor: Effe and Nabi
“Maybe the divine power you have still does not work?”
“I haven’t checked it yet, so I’m not certain.”
It was a significant problem that the divine power did not work. Since it was usually the case for those who have done forbidden things, such as messing with black magic or calling out evil spirits.
In Elysia’s case, the divine power didn’t work from the beginning, and Amon knew that she had no time to be doing anything forbidden because she was lying motionless.
Thanks to that, it wasn’t related to the case mentioned above, but it was still not good for others to hear a word about this.
Fortunately, Amon was from a nursery school sponsored by the family. The secret was never leaked because the butler from the mansion brought him in since he liked his personality.
“Would you like to check it out now?”
“Yes, just a minute.”
She didn’t really want to try it.
Even in the world before she was transmigrated, there was a saying that vampires could be wounded with silver or with holy water. Of course, it wasn’t true at all.
Though it sounds a little uncomfortable, there is a legend in this world that sprinkling holy water on a demon or attacking it with divine power can cause injuries.
‘I could be a demonic being here. Still, I feel bad.’
Amon took Elysia’s hand and let the divine power flow out. She once heard that when receiving the divine power, one’s body feels warmer and lighter. However, it appeared as though the intangible energy was flowing out.
‘I knew it would be like this.’
Still, the feeling of it being bounced off wasn’t bad. Soon, Elysia was able to rationalize that the divine power was rejecting her.
“Don’t worry too much, it may be because you received too much divine power at the time of the accident.”
“Is there such a case?”
“It’s the first time I’ve seen it, but… I’m only expecting that.”
‘I just don’t know why…’
In an awkward atmosphere with Amon, when they exchanged non-spiritual related words, a scene from the original story came to mind.
In the second half of the work, Revos suffered a fatal injury from the Second Prince and took refuge in the temple and hid himself in a place that sealed an ancient spellbook in the basement of the temple. The Second Prince who was pursuing him couldn’t step into the place, so Revos passed the crisis.
‘It was said that he couldn’t lift his feet because he used black magic, right? Will I be like that…?’
As the divine power did not work, it was a natural question that popped into Elysia’s mind. She wondered what ancient magic is like. Of course, as a wizard, she had little to no curiosity or passion for research.
“Your fiance is coming. I will go back first.”
“Thank you for today.”
“No. I would obviously come to see you. Then, I will see you at the wedding.”
Elysia, who sent Amon back, greeted Cassian.
It was because he appeared in the uncomfortable atmosphere with Amon. Cassian looked at Amon’s back and wrapped Elysia’s waist.
“This is the temple.”
Elysia felt like she shouldn’t feel a vampiric desire in the temple, but she couldn’t simply explain it to him.
“Are you done?”
Cassian nodded his head. Seeing so, she moved her steps with him, agonizing over when to visit the place. First of all, since she did not know the way to the basement of the temple, there was no way that anyone could enter such a place in the first place.
‘How do I get there? Could I just pretend to be lost and go? It would be nice to have a drawing or something.’
The drawings showing the structure of the temple were classified. Elysia didn’t check if the Lowell family had it, but at least it wasn’t in the library.
She had to ask her father to find out.
“Lady Lowell. Nice to meet you.”
“Madam, long time no see.”
It was Marchioness Melissa. Melissa was a family close to the Lowell family in terms of business. Since there are not so many aristocrats that Elysia was close to, it was rare for her to talk to others like this.
She was told before that Marchioness Melissa was also acquainted with Elysia’s mother or the previous Duchess Lowell.
“I heard about your engagement. Congratulations.”
The nobles who were around, led by Marchioness Melissa, approached.
A few months ago, she would have just left the place without saying anything, but now, she couldn’t.
Her reputation will lead to Duke Esteban’s.
Elysia had already heard that today is the day that people regularly come and pray at the temple, but there were more people than she expected.
‘I should have come another day. I’m so tired…’
It was difficult to face several people in the building like this. It was because there were too many feelings and sounds mixed together. Fortunately, because Cassian was next to her, she could feel a little better as Elysia could focus on him.
‘Wasit this much before the return…’
“There is news that you are preparing for the wedding ceremony, did you come to the temple because of that?”
“Yes, that is correct.”
It was a sign that the wedding was imminent. Most visited the temple just before the wedding. And so, congratulations were given everywhere.
Husbands, who followed their wife and went to the temple, approached Cassian with their eyes lit.
Seeing Elysia’s face, Cassian opened his mouth slowly, pulling her tightly at the waist.
“I’m sorry. I’m not very well.”
“Ah…the Duke’s health… I see.”
“We’ll talk more about it at the wedding reception.”
“Oh, yes, I’ll see you at the wedding.”
It wasn’t convincing to say that he wasn’t feeling well, but they nodded as Cassian said they would talk at the wedding reception. Because it meant they were invited.
Elysia exhaled her breath, which she had been holding out from where the nobles were.
“You don’t have to deal with it on purpose.”
“If you keep saying that, I may really do nothing.”
Cassian has said a lot these days that it was all right for her not to do much. If he keeps on saying that, Elysia may really think that she didn’t need to.
“It’s okay. I’m good enough to take away some paperwork.”
“…That’s a little scary.”
Cassian laughed, saying that it wasn’t so bad.
Since no one else could handle the Duchess’s business for her, it would be Cassian’s job. The butler and Lloyd are taking care of what they can handle, but it’s still a lot.
The nobles chattered as they watched the two move away.
“I don’t know about anything else, but the Duke of Esteban seems to be in love.”
“I know. I’ve never seen him smile before.”
“He laughs often, but it’s a bit… bloody laughter.”
A nobleman who works in a department that often faces the knights nodded.
Elysia disliked seeing the nobles outside the temple.
She beckoned him to lower his head. Cassian expected her to say something, but she just blew a wind out of her mouth.
His hand, which was wrapped around Elysia’s waist, tightened.
“What are you doing?”
“Just… Why are you coming here?”
Some ladies blushed their faces and chatted among themselves.
Seeing his reaction, Elysia thought it was pretty funny that she would do it one more time. After deciding so, she put her mouth to his ear.
“Do you… do you have any drawings or materials that show the internal structure of the temple?”
It wasn’t the definitive answer, but he seemed to have it for some reason.
Elysia clapped her hands excitedly.
“You really have everything.”
“It will be quicker to find what you’re missing. It’s something we’ve had since our predecessors.”
“That’s cool. If I was normal, you’re just a perfect husband in every sense.” She said the sentiment without much thought.
When Elysia saw the nobles moving away, she turned to the carriage with a happy expression.
‘I can’t figure out why…’
Meanwhile, Cassian was saddened by the feelings that were rising up, not understanding what it was. He glanced at her with a troubled face. However, Elysia didn’t notice his reaction. She appeared to be worrying about something else.
“But, why did you ask that?”
“Well… I wanted to check out something.”
“Somehow, I think I shouldn’t show it to you for some reason.”
Tsk. Elysia wasn’t pleased with his answer and clicked her tongue. It seemed that she had to look for it once more at Lowell’s mansion.
“What are you going to do?”
“If you’re curious, then show it to me. Well, I’ll see you later.” Smirking, she turned her head and climbed into her carriage.
Cassian beckoned to the coachman standing behind him to follow, as he got into the Duchy of Lowell’s carriage. She glanced around confusingly as she watched him ride on her carriage. No matter how much she looked at it, this was her carriage.
“Let’s go to my house.”
“You want to show me now?”
“If you tell me what this is all about.”
‘He really has to check it right away what I’m asking you for? He doesn’t need to take the time to figure it out?’
Elysia moved to the seat next to him and spoke with a small voice in his ear, even though they were the only two people in the carriage.
‘Is she doing this on purpose?’ Cassian thought so as she had been whispering in his ear many times today.
“I’m going to go to the basement of the temple.”
“Basement? Do you want to see the ancient spellbook?”
As she placed her finger on his lips, Elysia glanced at him to speak quietly.
It seemed that Cassian also knew what was in the basement of the temple. Although some were saying that it was nothing, others would say that there were just materials down there.
He laughed, grabbing Elysia’s finger and laying it down.
“So, no one can enter there?”
“That’s right. Paladins are guarding them.”
She can’t believe the paladins are guarding the entrance. In the original novel, there was no story of paladins. Suddenly, her strength fell on the unexpected barrier. It seems that sneaking in or secretly entering is only possible in the novel.
Cassian tangled Elysia’s hair around his fingers and blinked his eyes languidly. “You want me to let you in?”
“What? Can you get me in and out of there?”
Is it possible to get separate access permits or something? She wondered if there was such a system in the temple.
“No, it’s an off-limits area.”
“But how do I get in?”
‘Are you making fun of me now?’ Elysia pouted her lips for a moment without knowing it.
“We have to sneak in.”
Surprised, she had never thought such words would come out of his mouth. ‘Really… Sometimes, he just does what he wants to, huh?’
Thinking about it now, Elysia realized that Cassian’s image was an upright and respectable knight. Though when she thought about it again, there was a little distance from that kind of image.
Shouldn’t this kind of man play the protagonist or a sexy eminence grise?*
Elysia grabbed his hand that was touching her hair.
“I like it when you do this.”
Fondling with his hand, she leaned comfortably against the carriage.
Seeing no reaction, Elysia turned her head to look at Cassian, whose face was stiff. She knew that a brazen response would come back.
Elysia opened her mouth, still stroking the back of his hand.
“What’s wrong with you suddenly? Was it because of my way of speaking? Did it make you feel bad?”
‘Is that so?’
The air in the carriage seemed heavy.
Elysia contemplated what was wrong and tried to move away her hand, though Cassian gave strength again and tightened the grip on her hand.
He doesn’t know why he keeps feeling this way, but he didn’t want to let go of her hand.
*Eminence Grise: powerful decision-maker or adviser who operates “behind the scenes”, or in a non-public or unofficial capacity.
