Chapter 25: What should I do if I find my wife missing when I get home?
Translated by Addis of Exiled Rebels Scanlations
“Your Highness, his Highness the Second Prince told you to take shelter on the arranged planet.” One of the subordinates behind Felix obviously disagreed with this kind of behavior in his heart, but on the surface, he had to be respectful.
“He’s just worried too much. How can my brother lose to that guy? Many forces in the Imperial Capital belong to us, and our mother’s Secret lines and hands are also used by us…”
“Your Highness, please be careful when you go out…”
It didn’t matter so Felix waved his hand, “The Eldest Prince is not here.”
When the Second Prince saw that the Emperor was rapidly deteriorating, he quickly arranged to send his little brother to a safe place. No matter what the result was, he was far away from the Emperor at the border. If the Second Prince won against their elder brother, he would do to pick up Felix. If Filso won, Felix would be far away from the capital, and he would have a chance to escape.
The Second Prince made a good arrangement, but he didn’t think his spoiled brother would not realize the seriousness of the situation. Felix thought it was easy to win the throne and play games, so he took a group of guards to Lambeth.
The subordinates dared not contradict, but they were very anxious. The Second Prince had instructed them well, but the Third Prince did not listen! If something went wrong, it was up to these subordinates to take care of it.
Langer, who was standing outside, received the news that Ed was on his way back, and truthfully reported the situation of Augus just now. Ed didn’t have a problem with this. In this case, it was the best choice to let Augus cool down in the room.
“Tell him I’ll be right back.”
Langer wanted to talk to Augus, but he was afraid that the Third Prince would come out of the room to find him. So he knocked on the door, “Your Highness, do you need to stay here? Your subordinates should have prepared a room and dinner in advance. “
Felix had been thinking about where to go in the last two days, so he rarely came out, “Okay, I wanted to come here to play, but I didn’t expect that general Ed would not be there. I heard that he came to deal with the Alliance. Now it seems that there is no war to fight. “
“The situation has been good recently. The enemy’s movements have become less.” Langer’s stomach clenched. If the Third Prince really saw the appearance of war, he would be scared back to his hometown immediately.
“Boring,” Felix glanced at Langer, who was expressionless. “I’ll leave early tomorrow.”
“Just in time, general Ed will be back in the morning. He apologises that he couldn’t receive you properly, so he wants to make sure he sees you off.”
Felix was used to the scene and waved to show that he knew. It was boring to sit there for a long time. After a while, he ran out, claiming to be supervising the army and observing the people’s situation. The guards around him did not leave his side. It was against the order of the Second Prince to come here. There was the issue of if the Third Prince came again and an accident took place, so a group of them had to go at their own discretion.
Langer was in charge of arranging the accommodation for the Third Prince and his party, only hoping that the unexpected guest would leave early.
The next night was peaceful, and Felix didn’t ask for anything strange. He had a meal that was simple to him. Then he walked in a small circle and went to sleep. During this period, the Second Prince contacted Felix once. He was furious when he heard that he had not reached his destination but had run to Ed’s territory. He strongly demanded Felix leave Lambeth as soon as possible. Before he finished speaking, he had to hang up because his people came to report something.
Although Felix, the heartless man, was a little worried about his brother’s condition, he subconsciously thought that the Second Prince would not make any big mistakes. He just had to leave early tomorrow as scheduled.
Ed hurried back to Lambeth in the morning with dark eyes. When he got off the ship, he went straight to his house, just in time to meet Felix, who was going out after breakfast.
“Your Highness, the Third Prince.” Ed saluted.
Originally, the Third Prince was interested in asking about what happened after Augus was sent to Ed, but Felix, who was taught a lesson by the Second Prince yesterday, was unable to raise his spirits at this time, and only gave a few faint thanks.
Ed caught a glimpse of Felix’s entourage. Thinking of the situation in the capital, he thought that the Second Prince was also not sure about the situation. He sent Felix out on the safe side. It was just a mystery why Felix came here for a walk.
He didn’t know what the situation was like in the capital. Ed’s mind flashed, if Felix was here then…
But the idea quickly flashed by. It was not worth it. Felix’s existence had no effect on the Eldest Prince at all. The Second Prince thought highly of Felix. If he had any problems in his own territory, he would definitely find his own troubles if he won.
Ed, as if nothing had happened, respectfully put Felix on board his ship.
“He’s gone at last.” Langer sighed.
“Where’s Augus?” Ed’s first question after Felix left was where the Augus were. Although Langer didn’t elaborate on what Felix said yesterday, he could also guess what it was that poked Augus’s pain.
“In the room.” Langer took Ed to Augus’s room. Although he was said to be in custody, no one was looking or guarding over him. After all, Langer, who knew the whole story, knew that the Third Prince was the one who was unreasonable.
“Has he had breakfast?”
“No, he was not in a good mood after the dinner was delivered yesterday. He had it put at the door. I don’t know if he ate any.”
Ed thought he could have breakfast together. If Augus was in a bad mood, he could coax his bride.
When he reached the door, Langer knocked twice, “General Ed is back.”
There was no response in the room.
Ed took a look at the food that had turned completely cold at the door, and a bad premonition came into his mind.
“Augus?” Ed patted the door twice, tried to open the door, but found that the door was locked. “Are you ok? Augus?”
Ed yelled several times, but no one answered. Langer was stunned and said, “Do you want me to get the spare key?”
Before he had finished speaking, Ed had stepped back a few steps and kicked the door with all his strength. Two tries later, the door opened with a “pa”.
Where was Augus? Even the quilts on the bed were neat. No one had slept there.
“Shit, idiot…” Ed said to himself subconsciously. He didn’t know who he was scolding. “Go and get the surveillance video!”
Looking at Langer’s back as he hurried to go to the monitoring room, Ed’s brain was blank for a moment, and he leaned back against the wall, feeling a little powerless. Although he hadn’t seen the surveillance footage yet, he vaguely knew where Augus had gone.
As he walked to the office, he recalled how many people and soldiers they had on their ship.
Langer would be back in a moment.
Looking at Augus, who had put on Fleur’s appearance on the monitor, Ed hit the table directly. The papers on the table flew up, and Langer felt a little guilty, “I’m sorry, I was too careless.”
Using Fleur’s face, Augus jumped through the window into the grass downstairs, and went through the ground into the barracks. Then it was not until the early hours of the morning that he could be seen flashing into the docking area of Felix’s spaceship, and then beyond their monitoring range.
Ed was so worried. If there were three or five people on the other side, it would have been okay. But Felix had a whole Spaceship! No matter how powerful Augus was, he was only one person. Was this to prepare for the burning of jade and stone?
At this time, Ed was supposed to stay in Lambeth and wait for news, but how could he possibly sit down after this big event? “I have to go.”
“General!” Langer stood up with Ed, “His Highness the Third Prince has been away for a while. What’s your reason to contact them?”
“Did I say I was going to contact them?”
Langer, “But here… It’s offensive to the prince… “
“Fuck the prince!” Ed lost his composure. He thought that there would be no mistakes when he got married and came to Lambeth. Unexpectedly, Ed didn’t know that he would be wrong. Felix had to come to the door to provoke Augus. At the moment, Ed had the heart to kill Felix himself.
“The army can’t go out for that reason.” Langer told Ed rationally.
“I’ll go alone.” After that, Ed went out on his own. He could catch up with the Third Prince’s spaceship in a few hours. “Don’t tell others. You are solely responsible during my absence.”
Langer was eager to stop Ed and tell his boss how unworthy and irresponsible he was. But when he saw Ed, he knew he couldn’t stop him today.
At this time, Ed only expected Augus to calm down, and never start something, or not wait until he arrived at all.
