My Husband Hides His Beauty - Chapter 14
Translator and Editor: Skye and Mikki
The enemies were filled with shock.
The Giant Ants were still in turmoil, they couldn’t figure out what just happened.
The Young Lady that is soon to be the wife of the Young Lord, came out to the tower as they had requested. They thought that she would get dragged, but there were arrows that suddenly flew from the top of the tower.
Out of nowhere, the arrows burst out and there was an explosion.
Along with the new nest, tons of Ants were shattered and blown away.
This caused an ordeal.
The death of their queen that is in charge of ordering them around had sparked confusion and the army of Giant Ants was at loss and didn’t know what to do next.
“What the hell! What the hell is going on!”
“Retreat! Let’s retreat for now!”
Those who are quick-witted have found their way back earlier.
But it was just the beginning.
The moment they managed to back down and run away, the soldiers of Halstead that were led by Bastian rushed in.
They are merely giant ants who had just lost their queen, so they couldn’t resist and just fell down lifelessly.
Leticia lost it and looked down at them.
If it were a battle between the same humans, the blood would have splattered and their limbs would have been cut off.
But the opponents are demon insects, so she just felt refreshed.
‘That’s great! Way to go!’
She looked eagerly at the Halstead soldiers and cheered them on.
After a short period of time, the remaining ants fell.
“They are all wiped out!”
A guard, who sounded excited, came running up the tower and told her something.
“Madame! Let’s go down!”
The maids were excited, too.
When Lectia came out of the tower, they all had an expression of victory and extravagance.
Outside the castle was a mess.
Several soldiers were covering the Giant Ant’s destroyed nest with a cloth. They thought that it should be sealed until the Lord’s arrival.
Other soldiers searched everywhere to see if there were any casualties. They also remembered to pack some useful weapons and belongings.
“That’s a pretty good camouflage. Take it off this instant!”
“There’s another one here!”
It was the most exciting time and everyone was very busy.
But when Leticia appeared, the soldiers stopped what they were doing. Everyone’s eyes turned to the Young Lady.
No one is seriously injured and won the battle. Even though the Lord is not around, they were able to keep the castle safe.
‘This is enough for me.’
However, thinking about the happiness she has felt over the past few days, she couldn’t help but feel a bit bitter in her heart.
‘I’ll never forget this.’
With her shoulders drooping, she turned her eyes to everyone.
She’s sick and tired of seeing the emptiness in other people’s eyes. She doesn’t want to see that again.
But what is going on here?
A loud cheer rang out.
Everyone ran and surrounded Leticia. The three grandmas walked faster than everyone else. Their faces were all filled with a mirage of emotions.
Bastian shouted first.
“Now that the battle is over, we must count the merits and demerits! The hero of this battle with the Giant Ants and the one who attained victory today was the Mistress! Is there anyone who is against it?!”
They replied like a roar. In the midst of it, Casaro cried ravenously.
“Hey, nanny! Don’t you have better words to say?!”
She spat on the Giant Ant’s body.
“I have something to say now, I thought these creatures would come back from the dead again. I thought that ‘Today, God will take away some of the useless bastards of this castle, or maybe there will be a time where one arm of this old lady will also be blown away and will be a single-handed person with only one eye.’ But with your assistance, I didn’t lose anything to those damned creatures and my arm is still intact. Can you do me a favor and tell me what I’m going to do with this unscathed arm?”
She took off her hat and paid her respect with all her heart and cried out loud.
“Praise the Mistress!”
“Hooray to the Mistress!”
Everyone shouted in chorus.
What is this?
Leticia was puzzled.
This isn’t a play. They were not trying to laugh at Leticia just like her older cousin.
Their reactions were all sincere.
‘I’d be less surprised if they talk about magicians.’
She felt embarrassed at what she’d thought. She realized again that she was used to the coldness of other people’s gaze.
She didn’t know where to look, so she turned her gaze to Alexa. Leticia said something out of nowhere.
“I know what you are thinking.”
Alexa said calmly.
“Trust this grandma’s words. I’ve been through similar things since I came here. And there is one thing that I’ve learned. There are no pointing fingers at the time of salvation. At least it applies here.”
Alexa’s words caught her heart.
Those words made her realize it again.
This was a battlefield. Even if she spent the evening in front of the cozy wall stove, she didn’t know when peace would be trampled into pieces. She had experienced it all and it scattered her.
‘It means that they are grateful enough.’
Somehow, she was on the verge of crying.
‘The knowledge of my past life had saved people here.’
Well done. She did a job well done and came out without being scared. It was good to help the three Grandmas, the soldiers, and everyone in this castle.
She whispered several times.
“So, let’s march for the victory!”
Bastian shouted cheerfully and lifted Leticia up and put her on her shoulder. All followed with a loud laugh with their triumphs.
Alexa also followed along with the soldiers.
“Oh! Tell them the news about our victory as soon as possible.”
The soldiers rushed to the messenger birdcage.
Before the incident.
The first messenger that was sent from the castle had gone across the forest to find the army and made it safely. And the letter that was hung on its ankle said.
[Giant Ant Assault. Please come back soon.]
Upon receiving this, Erden and the soldiers were surprised.
“I’m sure he’s dead.”
“I saw him covered in sand!”
First of all, he turned in a hurry.
It was an unbelievable story, but they guessed there was a mistake.
There was a sign of migration of a group of Giant Ants on the devastated land. He thought that the closer they got to Halstead Castle, the clearer the trail became.
There was a massive shift of attack.
The castle had no electricity now. The only people present were the nanny, chef, and numerous soldiers. Most importantly, the Mistress was also left behind and is only twelve years old.
The Halstead army was led by the Lord who ran at full speed.
It was not long when they saw the castle.
But the sight was completely unexpected. It looked like a storm passed by.
Everyone doubted their eyes.
There was a dark pile outside the castle and Giant corpses were all over the place.
There were traces of scorched ground in various places. The remnants of the ant’s nest were all noticeable.
The place where the nest was located was sealed with a cloth.
This is the place to evacuate artifacts. This meant that the battle is all over.
It was as if they were telling him.
That everything was already solved in Halstead Castle, where the Giant Ant’s raid took place.
And it was an overwhelming victory on their side despite the absence of their Lord, who is the figurehead of their premises.
Everyone was shocked.
“Lord, how is this possible?”
Erden hurried into the castle.
The family members of the castle were chopping firewood and cooking cattle.
It couldn’t have looked more peaceful.
When they saw the troops, who had come to swirl off the dust all over their bodies, they were all astonished.
“No, Lord! Didn’t you get the message?”
“I got it! Didn’t you say that you were attacked by demons?”
“It’s not that! We sent you another letter.”
Hearing Erden’s voice, Bastian rushed out. On her back, there he saw the sleeping Leticia.
“Oh my! You ran so fast that you have crossed the street of the messenger, and it looks like you even reached here at a fast speed. The situation is already over.”
“H-How on earth?”
Erden shouted in bewilderment.
For a bit, Leticia slightly slipped down on her back and Bastian quickly picked her up.
“Madame must have been tired. We all fought and defeated the Giant Ant Legion.”
Everyone was astonished.
Mrs. Bastian is someone who never jokes around. No matter what happens, she is the type who will say the truth.
Erden eyed Alexa with a confused expression.
“Alexa! What the hell happened to all of you?!”
She told him the whole story clearly.
How the Giant Ants came, how they all prepared for battle, their strategy, and how they defeated the enemies by using strange items collected by his former friends.
Everything was explained in detail.
Everyone couldn’t keep their mouth shut.
“Not only did we defeat the enemies without a single drop of blood, but we also got artifacts. She speaks to us as though she owes us, but we give it all to her. Lord, what can we do more for this castle?”
Casaro said with an excited expression on her face.
Erden stood there blankly for a moment and felt like he didn’t seem to believe what he just heard.
“You killed the enemies without spilling a single drop of blood?”
His voice showed that he felt even more shocked.
“No way! I’m not sure about that either! She did it all when she’s merely a 12-year-old kid?”
At that moment, Leticia woke up from her slumber.
