Roel Ascart, the proxy fief lord of the Ascart Fiefdom, the mastermind behind the reforms that had improved the people’s standard of living and brought them hopes for a greater future, the sole successor of the prestigious Ascart House, and the bearer of many more titles, had gone missing!
He had been kidnapped by the neighboring Rosalian princess!
Even the novelists in this era wouldn’t dare to write something as severe as this into their tales!
There were already rumors going around by the borders, but the Ascart House refused to acknowledge or respond to them. They were trying their best to conceal this matter as much as they could.
Just how embarrassing was it to lose one’s fief lord!
Once the news spread in the Theocracy, the other nobles who viewed the Ascart House as an eyesore would surely ridicule them. At the same time, the Xeclydes’ honor would be sullied as well.
