A few days had passed since he regained consciousness, but the side effects plaguing his body continued to affect his condition, most notably his constant exhaustion and lingering debility. He felt no different than the stereotypical beautiful frail heroine. Fortunately, this wasn’t a big deal since there was always a hero around to protect a heroine—Charlotte.
Who would dare to bully someone favored by the First Miss of the Sorofya House?
Roel gently pressed his fingers against his lips as he reminisced about the vague pleasurable sensation he had just experienced earlier when his mind was fuzzy once more.
It seems that Charlotte has taken my temperature again. Haa, it really has been hard on her these last few days.
To be honest, Roel was rather moved by Charlotte’s selflessness in taking care of him, especially since he could tell that she was helping him solely out of goodwill. This was an investment with no rewards, yet she persisted despite the difficulties.
With a deep sigh, he turned his attention toward his current financial circumstances.
Earlier in the morning, Roel had requested compensation from Charlotte, only to be told that her assets were now shared property. He took those words to mean ‘If you want to get your money, you’ll have to acknowledge that we’re an engaged couple!’. It was a terrifying threat, but Roel was not one to back down in the face of trouble.
You think that little ploys like this can cause my determination to obtain my money to waver? You’re too naive!

Also, at the root of the matter, Glacial Touch had not only benefited Roel but Charlotte as well. It was because the situation they were in was so dire that he was compelled to absorb the mana around the egg—this solved a problem and simultaneously obtain another powerful trump card for the two of them. Otherwise, he absolutely wouldn’t be willing to touch something coming from the Six Calamities.
Transcendent abilities and the price required to invoke them—this was a central issue that all transcendents had to weigh carefully. Most would become too fervent in their pursuit of power, causing them to neglect the price that must be paid, but the Ascart House, with its wisdom passed down from generation to generation, knew better.
The Ascart House had always valued stability over profits, and Roel was a deep believer in this philosophy. He would rather abandon potential gains than expose himself and those around him to danger.
This was one of the rare occasio
