Looking at Rolands disdainful middle finger, Husserets sinister face showed a hint of a smile. "I originally wanted the queen to keep you company, to get you to relax. It seems that it was quite effective. I just didnt expect that not only did you sleep with her, but youre actually trying to elope with heryoure too greedy. Arent you afraid of being hunted by the whole Hollevin royal family?"
"I didnt do anything to her." Roland looked at Andonara and then said helplessly, "By the way, I heard from the queen that the atonement scrolls are very expensive. Ill give you the money later, just tell me how much it cost."
"Just give me fifty or sixty gold coins," Husseret said after some thought. "I also used some tactics to buy it at half-price."
Andonara was a little surprised to hear this. "Atonement scrolls are usually only held by certain special people in the royal family, how did you get it for half-price?"
"Its a secret." Husseret wiggled his eyebrows, then looked at Roland. "Do you really want to take her?"
Roland opened the system panel and shared the newly acquired quest.
Special secondary quest: Escort Queen Andonara Safely Out of the Capital.
"Oh, theres a quest, that makes things easier." Husseret clapped his hands. "Ill go and share the quest with the others, and also go outside the city to share the quest with Schuck. Roland, youre in charge of your woman, take her to a safe place first, and leave a message in the guild system if you need anything."
After speaking, Husseret turned around and walked away, and under the effect of stealth, his figure became transparent at a very fast speed, and finally disappeared completely before the two of them.
"Your woman." Andonara looked at Roland with an odd look in her eyes. "Your friend is quite the talker."
Roland didnt bother picking up on her remark. He realized that a woman like Andonara was very good at stirring things up, and the more you responded to her, the more she would get a kick out of it.
Of course, Roland wasnt saying that women with this kind of personality were bad, but right now he wasnt in the mood to play any ambiguous games with Andonara.
Roland spoke insipidly and walked ahead.
"How unromantic." Andonara tsked, following Roland rather bitterly.
They followed the path to the main entrance and ended up walking out of the belt of woods, but they saw a figure standing in the middle of the path in front of them.
It was a young girl, carrying an unsharpened broadsword, with a small round shield pinned to her small left arm, wearing pale blue leather armor and she had a very flat chest.
It was Veronica.
The young girls golden ponytail fluttered slightly in the night breeze. Andonara gazed at Veronica, her long ponytail also swaying slightly.
Roland suddenly realized that Veronica and Andonara were a lot alike.
Not in looks, but in temperament.
They were both crisp and clean.
"Have you come to kill me?" Andonara smiled at the girl in front of her. "Kill me, a woman who has disgraced the royal family."
Veronica glanced at Roland. "Is this the man youve looked for, the backer?"
"What?" Andonara said, still smiling. "Can I not?"
Veronica took a deep breath. "Hes too young for you."
Well after all, Rolands current game character appearance was only about 17 years old.
Andonara, however, laughed. "I like the younger ones, dont I? Or are you not only trying to stop me from leaving, but trying to stand on the moral high ground and judge me?"
"I didnt mean it that way, you are after all my mother in name and my teacher." Veronica bowed her head slightly and tossed her broadsword aside. "I came over here to save you, but I didnt realize that you had already found someone."
Roland tsked slightly and didnt say anything.
Andonara saw from her peripheral vision that Roland didnt interject. She raised her eyebrows, then looked at Veronica and said, "Its none of your business anymore. If you want to stop me, I wont be polite to you, but if you still have a little bit of affection for me, then please move aside."
Veronica froze for a moment and stepped aside.
Andonara was relieved and walked straight ahead, saying softly as she walked past Veronica, "Thank you."
Veronicas body trembled a little, then she hung her head down.
Only after Andonara and Roland had walked away did Veronica slowly raise her head, her eyes a little red.
At this time, Andonara and Roland had already walked down the street.
There was no curfew right now, so several commercial streets in the city were brightly lit and there were many pedestrians on the road.
The two of them were very conspicuous as they walked down the street. After all, Andonara was very beautiful.
But not many people dared to look at them directly. After all, Andonara was equipped with a long sword, while Roland wore a magic robe.
They were a combination that was not easy to mess with at first glance.
Andonara clasped her hands to her chest, feeling a little cold.
She wouldnt actually feel cold. As a professional and as a great swordsman, this little bit of night breeze couldnt make her feel cold.
She just didnt feel safe. Shed been in the palace for the past few years, and suddenly she felt a bit overwhelmed by the sudden escape.
The relatively unfamiliar surroundings and her unknown future, accompanied by all sorts of considerations and thoughts, filled her head and left her in a dazed state.
Roland, on the other hand, was looking for a safer place.
The Wild Horse Tavern was out of the question. That kind of place was too crowded, and going there would be the equivalent of directly telling the royal family their location.
If it were any other city, he could have blown the gates open with a large fireball and left with Andonara.
But the walls of the capital were different, mixed with magic-resistant materials.
Even if a big fireball came down, it would break through two meters of the wall at best.
The thickness of the wall of the capital was at least twenty meters.
The walls of almost every kingdoms capital were built with magic-resistant materials.
It was to prevent powerful Mages from screwing things up.
This was why Roland had to be patient and wait for Husseret to find a way out.
If that was not possible, he would have to rely on Schuckhave him take the little dragoness into the capital, then find an empty spot where the dragoness could shift back into her dragon form and fly away from the capital with Andonara.
Of course, this was the last resort.
They didnt want to expose Schuck and the dragoness for the time being, after all. When dealing with the Association headquarters, they were the trump card.
In the end, Roland thought about it and took Andonara to the west side of the city, next to the cemetery.
The cemetery was a place that people generally didnt like to come to, so there were very few people here. There was also a small forest around the cemetery, and in the forest, Roland used Mud to Stone to build a small cottage, and then took Andonara and hid inside.
With the woods as cover, it would be difficult for the average person to spot the small cottage.
After Andonara entered the small, narrow cottage, her expression, at last, eased considerably.
It seemed that this temporary lodging gave her a lot of security.
She looked up at the leafy canopy outside through the tiny ventilation window, and after a while, she said, "I guess the royal family is already looking for me."
Roland sat leaning against the wall and didnt say anythingwhat she had just said was quite obvious.
Andonara turned her head to look at Roland. "Im actually very powerful. Even the few Archmages in the city are no match for me."
Roland was a little surprised, but also a little helpless.
This womans thoughts were so capricious, he had no idea what her next words were going to be.
