“Your Highness Victoria, I have a companion named Roel Ascart. He’s a black-haired, golden-eyed boy, around the same age as me. He’s… a very important person. Please, you must find him!”
“Ahh… Child, we’re in the midst of a battlefield. Even if you ask me to look for someone… Wait a moment, did you mention Ascart?”
Victoria was put in a spot by Nora’s question when she suddenly noticed a key phrase in what the latter had just mentioned. Her eyes immediately darted toward Ponte. The latter was in the midst of gathering his mana to cast another spell, but he, too, caught the girl’s words and quickly turned his head over.
“Teacher, is there such a person in your family?”
“No, I have never heard of this person before.”
Despite saying so, Ponte continued staring at Nora as he digested what she had just said. He felt like there was something important he needed to recall, but it just wasn’t coming to him for some reason.
On the other hand, after hearing how Victoria addressed Ponte, Nora immediately realized who he was. She quickly turned to him and said.
“You must be Marquess Ponte, right? You have to find a way to save Roel. He’s an offspring of the Ascart House! I believe that he might have been captured by the enemy soldiers!”

For some reason, the patriarch of every single generation had almost always been a single child. Only in a few, rare generations did the patriarch have siblings.
Due to this, the Ascart House viewed every single family member with great importance, leading to a very different climate from the usual noble houses that had lots of successors but a great deal of dirty rivalry too.
“Child, are you certain that your companion is one of my family members?”
“I’m certain. I can swear on my bloodline that it’s the truth. Please, you have to find a way to save him!” Nora said as she bowed deeply to him.
The current circumstances left her with no choice but to set aside her pride. She simply couldn’t bear the notion of any danger coming to Roel. The two of them had already been through so much in this labyrinth. Things shouldn’t end like that. They mustn’t!
“Victoria, leave this matter to me. I’ll try to look around a bit.”
