So I decided to take action right away.
“You better keep your mouth shut.” I raised the scabbard of my sword and threatened Clie, whose eyes widened in surprise.
My actions must’ve surprised even Shael who was standing next to me, as I usually didn’t act with such ruthlessness in front of Shael, but unfortunately I had no choice.
Clie let out an inaudible sigh of resignation.
I didn’t pay attention to that and quickly swung the scabbard down on her neck.
I knocked her out using a moderate amount of strength, and put the scabbard back at my waist.
It was only then that Shael, who had maintained her silence, opened her mouth, “What, what are you doing?”
“If I didn’t knock her out, she would definitely scream as soon as I open the door.”
“It very similar to that merciless slap on the cheek, so don’t think much of it.”
After a short conversation with Shael, I opened the door to the hospital room.
The Knight Commander Kaeson was still standing outside.
“You, why are you here?”
“The Crown Prince have requested the Baslett family for a cure that is helpful in treating the patient’s illnesses. The treatment process is currently ongoing, so don’t disturb us.”
As soon as I finished speaking, the Knight Commander expressed genuine gratitude, and withdrew. It was fortunate that this guy was much easier to deal with than the Mage Tower Lord and the Crown Prince.
Shael looked at me with her mouth wide open.
“You hit her on the head with your scabbard and said you came here to heal her…”
“There is a saying that a good beating is the best medicine. So, I said the truth.”
I gave Shael a witty response and approached the now unconscious Clie. In order to make sure that Clie’s disappearance wouldn’t be discovered, I had to make it seem like she had left on her own.
Even if a few knights saw me, it would be fine, because no one would believe that a honorable descendant of a high-ranking ducal family would go out of his way to kidnap someone. In fact, it didn’t even matter if it was revealed that I had kidnapped Clie.
‘Perks of being a descendant of a high-ranking ducal family.’
Unless the opponent was someone like the Mage Tower Lord and the Crown Prince, there was no one who could be my opponent. So, I was able to return to the Baslett family without worrying about meeting other people using the teleportation device I had taken from the Crown Prince’s room.

After that, things moved quickly.
First of all, Clie, who was unconscious, was imprisoned in the Baslett family’s prison. I even used magic tools to restrict her actions in order to prevent anything unforeseen from happening.
Of course, my revenge wasn’t over yet, but first I wanted to relieve the fatigue from the festival.
Since my father, Duke Ezran said he’d be coming back today, I needed to prepare. So Shael and I spent time eating dessert, and making out as usual.
Then I started looking through some paperwork for the Baslett family.
“So the gamble was successful?”
“Yes, as you said, I bet a lot of money, so I made a lot of money as well.”
It was thanks to me and Shael’s victory at the Empire Festival, it would be possible for the people of Baslett estate to live a slightly more affluent life.
As soon as the matter of gamb1ing came up, I felt Shael glaring at me, but I couldn’t help it. So I tried not to look at Shael and focused more on my butler.
“The head of the family said that he would be back today.”
“Yeah, I know that too.”
Today, I wanted to have a serious talk with Duke Ezran, so I was feeling a little nervous. I thought that’s all the butler had to say, but I saw him hesitating, as if he had something more to say.
“What is it?”
“Actually, we just got a strange transaction request.”
“What is the request?”
“It was a request to buy the Baslett family’s swordsmanship manual.”
That kind of business was of great help to the Baslett family’s finances. It was a business where we sell a few of the swordsmanship manuals belonging to the family at high prices.
“What is so strange about the transaction? Did they ask for an important swordsmanship manual by any chance?”
“No. Rather it is the opposite. Actually…”
The butler held out a swordsmanship manual. It was a book that detailed one of the sword techniques of the Baslett family. However, it was not an important sword technique, nor was it very useful in battle, so I became a bit confused.
‘This is indeed a bit strange…’
As if understanding my confusion, the butler responded, “There is someone who wants to buy this swordsmanship manual for 10 million gold.”
I thought I heard it wrong, but I didn’t. The butler was nodding his head as if to confirm it.
“No, why would anyone want to buy a sword technique that cleanly cuts off a body part?”
“I don’t know as well. Since it usually requires a lot of mana, it is said that the sword technique can allow the user to amputate parts of the body cleanly without any pain.”
I didn’t understand it at all, but it would benefit me none the less, I had no reason to refuse.
A sword technique for cutting off body parts. Of course, it was a completely unpopular sword technique. I would be very happy if I could sell it for 10 million gold.
‘But still…I feel like it’s something really disgusting…’
At the same time, I felt strangely refreshed. It gave me a similar feeling of getting revenge on Clie and those two male protagonists. It greatly lifted my mood.
After ordering the butler to sell swordsmanship manual right away, I continued to spend time with Shael.
