Ciel allocated Scarlett into one of the manor’s southwest room. The main color of her room was light green, and past the windows was a spectacular display of faraway trees with a majestic orange-red color, contrasted against an ink-like painting consisting of mountainous landscapes and the Dark Forest.
The young wizard was currently waiting outside her door as he had received news of his lord’s arrival. Brendel appeared moments later along with Felaern, and his first question was:
“How is she?”
“She’s not doing very well. Romaine, Medissa, and Amandina are all in there—”
Brendel nodded and pushed the doors open. Scarlett’s room was not really a patient’s room as there were no signs of any herbs or medicine. A light cold breeze came through the windows and he immediately saw the scenery, making him nod inwardly to Ciel’s choice.
In the center was a canopy bed, and the valance was fluttering lightly against the wind. Scarlett was lying in the center with a pale face and lightly closed eyes.

Even though it was naive and foolish to hope that no one in this group would die, she did not want to give up praying. Brendel even told her that there would be bloodshed over the nobles’ wars, and that victory could only be gained upon the sacrifice the lives of thousands.
