She had a long black witch ’s hat with a small skull charm on top.
She was holding a white staff that was made from materials that appeared to be bones.
”Selena Moriarty. ”
”… ” The woman looked at the man… Wrong, at the monster in front of her with her black eyes.
The monster in front of her had no shape or anything she could call a body. It just looked like blackness that existed right in front of her.
No matter how many times Selena looked at this monster, she always felt like she was facing a being different from her, a superior being.
’…It ’s a very different feeling to when I meet my mother. ’ She can ’t help but think that every time she runs into Vlad Tepes.
”Yes, Your Majesty. ”
”It ’s been a while since you came to this world… How long has it been? ” Vlad touched his chin.
”1000 years… ” She spoke as if she was trying to remember.
”It ’s been so long, huh? ”
”I see. ”
”… ” A silence fell on the place.
”Well, in that case. I will change it to something that makes you more comfortable. ” Vlad ’s body of darkness started to change, and soon a man with long golden hair and blue eyes was in front of the woman. He was wearing medieval armor that had the symbol of a lion.
”What do you think? ” He asked to know the woman ’s opinion.
”… ” The woman was silent and didn ’t answer. She didn ’t know what to answer since she had already made a mistake in the past.
She unintentionally offended Vlad, and because of that, one of her sisters died that day.
Although it happened a long time ago, a time forgotten by humans, she still remembers that day very well.
And that day, she learned two things, never speak mindlessly in front of Vlad.
And that her mother was a whore.
… A normal mother would get revenge on her dead daughter, but her mother just ignored the matter as if it wasn ’t her problem.
Because of that, she was very careful when talking to Vlad.
Seeing that the man was still silent, she spoke:
”Normal… Your Majesty, why did you invite me to your castle? I thought everything was settled when I contacted the Snow Clan. ”
Vlad didn ’t change his expression. He wasn ’t offended by what the woman said either since it was normal for her to be afraid of him. After all, everyone is, so he said:
”I ’m curious about something… ”
He rests his face on his hand and looks at the woman with a neutral gaze:
”Does your mother still have an interest in the uncharted lands of the Nightingale? ” He asked simply, in an easy to understand way.
Although it seemed like a non-committal question.
Selena knew this was a dangerous question, considering depending on what she answered, the neutrality treaty that witches have with vampires could end, and a possible war could ensue.
She didn ’t fear war. After all, they are witches, and they always have a way to avoid death as long as the soul is not destroyed. And since witches are a Neutral Faction, they wouldn ’t be alone if she went to war.
Werewolves and humans, even supernatural beings that aren ’t in these conflicts, will help the witches…
She thinks this because she knows that witches have a lot of technologies that everyone wants, but they always have the option to use some information and blackmail them…
Waking up from her stupor, Selena looked at Vlad, ”Oh… ”
”You keep overthinking things, huh. ”
”… ” She was silent, and then spoke, ”My mother has no interest in the Nightingale lands, as it was said the day I communicated with her subordinate, I only came to this place to seek a possible partnership with the new Count of Vampires. ” As the Count responsible for exploring this world, Victor basically smelled like money for all witches.
”And who gave that order to you? ”
”She didn ’t give any orders. I came of my own free will, I think partnering with the new count and contracting him for life is a good way to earn money. ”
Vlad ’s eyes narrowed for a few seconds, but they soon returned to normal without even the woman noticing that something had changed in his expression.
”Are you going to watch the game? ”
”I will, it ’s a rare opportunity to see two vampire counts fighting at their fullest. ”
”I see, enjoy the game, even for us, this kind of event is quite rare… ”
”Indeed. ” Certainly, the fight between two vampire counts isn ’t something you see every day, ”It ’s quite a special occasion indeed. ” She flashed a small professional smile.
”Because of that… ” Vlad ’s smile grew a little, ”I prepared something special, I hope you like it. ”
”… I will. ” She got a bad feeling about that smile since usually when this man smiled, nothing good ever happened.
”You can go now. ”
The woman held her dress and made a gesture of respect as if she were a high class lady, and then she turned and walked towards the exit.
When the woman left the castle, a portal appeared next to the throne, and soon the subordinate, who is Vlad ’s right hand, came out of the portal. Strangely, this man ’s eyes were wide open.
”Notice something? ” Vlad asked as he looked into the eyes that had the appearance of a galaxy.
”As we expected, My King. ” Alexios closed his eyes and replied in a neutral voice:
”Her memories have been erased. ”
”What a cruel woman, doing this to her own daughters… ” Vlad flashed a small smile.
Vlad is an old monster, and he ’s used to dealing with the witches ’ little games, so when he heard that the witch queen ’s daughter wanted to come to his realm, his suspicious instincts triggered like crazy.
”If that woman just wanted business, she wouldn ’t send her eldest daughter. ” Vlad spoke in a neutral tone.
And then Alexios continued, ”She would send another witch, but didn ’t that also figure into her calculations? She knew you would be suspicious of her daughter. ”
”Yes, I don ’t doubt she thought of that too. After all, it ’s the most logical thought given the circumstances. ”
”I wonder what her goal is. ”
”…We don ’t know…yet. ” Vlad looked at the ceiling, and soon several shadows began to descend on the floor and appeared in front of Vlad kneeling.
”Watch that woman, and that man ’s son. ”
”The woman must be watched from afar, beware of her curses. ”
”While the man… I leave the decision to you, deal with him as you see fit. ”
”… ” The shadows nodded and then disappeared.
