Lilith couldn’t help but sigh after hearing Lesiah. “I didn’t expect you would discover my long-hidden identity. As expected of the princess of a country.”

“What the heck. The enemy already recognized you, Lady Lilith. Naturally, she would know as long as she isn’t blind or deaf… Hey, hey… what are you trying to do, Lady Lilith?”

Lilith took out the broken dagger. “There’re quite a lot of skeletons in this world. I’ll just stick your real body into one of them, then you can spend the rest of your life with it.”

“NOOOOOO!!” The artifact spirit quickly snatched her real body from Lilith and hid it in her arms protectively, trembling in a corner tearfully.

“Please spare me, Lady Lilith! I swear I’ll never criticize your wife again, please have mercy on me…”

“Hm? What wife?”

“No, no. I mean I’ll never criticize your… best friend. Yeah, your best friend. Please spare your humble servant.”

“Hmph, I’ll let it slide this time.” Lilith glared fiercely at Sae. “If it happens one more time again…”

She made a gesture of sticking the dagger into something threateningly.

“Isn’t that a little too much for you to treat Lady Sae that way?” Lesiah couldn’t help but come into the artifact spirit’s defense.

“Lady Sae?”

Lilith threw a glance at Sae. “It would seem like she had flaunted her identity as an artifact spirit to you. Don’t let her deceive you. She’s nothing more than a stray ghost who could no longer function as an artifact spirit without a new physical body. You’re giving her too much credit by calling her Lady Sae. Might as well just call her Good-For-Nothing-Sae.”

“Lady Lilith, you’re going overboard! Is that how you’re supposed to treat me after I saved your *** so many times in the past?!”

“You want me to be nice to you? Sure.”

Lilith continued emotionlessly, “Tell me everything you know and I promise I’ll treat you with the same respect I have for my ancestor.”

“Ugh…”

Sae held her head and fell silent.

Lilith snorted then turned to Lesiah.

“By the way, don’t tell anyone that I’m a dragon. Otherwise I won’t be able to keep up with the masquerade in the academy.”

“Academy? You’re planning to stay in St. Caroline Academy?”

“Yeah. I’m learning the dragon language there.”

“Dragon language?”

Lesiah looked at Lilith in confusion, like she’d just seen a drowning fish or a bird with acrophobia.

“Aren’t you a dragon? Why are you learning dragon language in an academy run by humans?”

“Well…” Lilith scratched her head. “I don’t even know where to begin explaining…”

“Never mind, I’m not interested. But are you that dragon princess whom Taylor the Aurora Dragon is waiting for…?”

Lilith was instantly taken aback by the question. She looked at the princess in awe.

“I am. Impressive. How did you even guess that?”

Lesiah slapped her own forehead.

So that was really the case.

That explained everything — the destruction of Dragon God Lake, the Golden Demon Htilil that appeared out of nowhere, the strange reaction of Luminous Theocracy’s Pope during the square table conference, and the princess whom Taylor had been waiting for in the loli brothels.

Based on this series of events, if her guess was correct…

Lilith must have done something in the Luminous Theocracy. Given her identity, the Pope didn’t really dare to do anything, so he offered an extremely generous bounty of one billion gold coins to vent his anger since no one would probably succeed in catching her.

Then for some reason, Lilith destroyed the Dragon God Lake at St. Caroline Academy. Since she didn’t want her dragon identity to be exposed or be held accountable for her offense, she tried to get away by posing as the same fugitive who committed a crime in Luminous Theocracy.

However, due to the academy’s misunderstanding, various comprehensive analysis and the sudden appearance of the Ancient Ruins, things turned out this way.

To think that the legendary dragon princess, whom the humans had been wanting to please so badly, somehow turned into their public enemy.

Why did things have to turn out this way?!

A splitting headache instantly assaulted Lesiah.

“Lilith. Let’s just say if the entire human race identifies you as their enemy, what will you do?”
“Huh? Why are you asking me that? Why would anyone think someone as beautiful, adorable, and kind like me, as their enemy?”
“Just answer the question…”
“Well…”

While Lilith was thinking, Sae suddenly interrupted. “What else could she do? They would all be obliterated by her mother’s demigod-level magic spell. Little girl, remember why I didn’t dare to even touch Lady Lilith’s ring? That’s because her mother has a daughter complex! She will not hesitate in obliterating any race that harms even a strand of her daughter’s hair!”

Lesiah paled and looked at Lilith.

For once, Lilith actually agreed with Sae’s remarks. “I guess that’s how things will go. No one can stop my mother when she’s angry…”

“……”

The human race is doomed…

……

“By the way, where are we…?”

“I don’t know, My short-distance teleportation sent us to a random location. I only know that this seems to be a castle, and a terrifyingly huge one,” Sae spread her arms to emphasize her point.

“Castle…?” Lilith stroked her chin in deep thought. “Since this is a castle, there should be many goodies in here.”

“Who knows. But I think this castle is probably overrun by monsters that can easily swallow a human whole.”

“Haha, don’t be so negative… What if there are really treasures but we missed out just because we are sitting around wasting our time?”

“You’re not thinking of making us go out now to die, are you?” Lesiah cautiously asked as her keen senses could read Lilith’s thoughts.

“Of course not. We’re going on a treasure hunt. A treasure hunt! Who said anything about dying?”

“But those weirdos are looking for us everywhere. If we were to go out like this, the probability of us being discovered is much higher than hiding in this room which is protected by a barrier that I’ve set up. I won’t be able to help all of you escape if you all get caught again.”

“But then…” Lilith looked at Sae. “No matter how sophisticated your barrier is and how low the probability of getting discovered is, the enemy will eventually find us if they searched every room. So in that sense, the probability of getting discovered by staying here is a hundred percent. But if we go out and actively search for places to hide while hunting for treasure, there’s still a chance we might not be discovered. To gamble on this chance or not, I’ll leave it to you two…”

“……”

(Say no to content thief!)

Sae thought for a moment. Lilith did make a valid point.

“Fine, let’s do it your way, Lady Lilith. In any case, I don’t think I have much decision-making power here.”

After saying that, Sae returned to the broken dagger which flew back into Lilith’s storage ring by itself.

Lilith looked at Lesiah. “What about you? Are you going to hide here or follow me out…?”

The princess’ gut instinct and rational thinking both told her to just stay in this room. But for some strange reason…

“I’ll follow you.”

She was even surprised by her own words.

When she saw Lilith suddenly offering her hand, she couldn’t help but be wary.

“What are you doing? Are you trying to take advantage of me again? Let me warn you, I’m not going to let you have your way even if you’re the dragon princess!”

“What are you rambling on…” Lilith sighed in frustration. “I’m just trying to help you up.”

“Oh…”

Lesiah could feel her cheeks burning after realizing that she had mistaken Lilith’s intention. Even so, she placed her hand in hers…

And it felt really warm.
