Oh, goddess have mercy, dear goddess, , not now I've almost got this game in the bag. So who are you? You don't, look like simpletons to me. Anyway, I owe you one. Thanks to you.
I managed to pull that little caper off without being caught. He was such an easy mark. I got a bit carried away still can't, hang around don't want any more trouble. I hope you weren't hurt by my little jape, are you all right by way of thanks for helping me?
Furthermore, I know your memento of our encounter the name's Angelo. Furthermore, I live at. Mayella abbey show them that ring.
If you'd like to see me, I'll be expecting you AU Renoir for now Mayella abbey, all right just ask for Angelo. Don't, forget news travels fast what a fine intelligence network. The Templar you sent for me, captain, phew, it's turned up. Thanks to the goddess.
Someone stole it from me at the pub, and it looks like they're about to learn that crime doesn't pay. I have nothing further to say you can find me in my chambers good evening. Everyone glad to see you're all looking so. Well now control your temper I must apologize for before, perhaps you will accept this as conciliation the guard upstairs might hear if we talk now I'll explain later, come on follow me the guards up ahead, right? No, one make a sound.
Okay? I seasoned his supper with a generous pinch of sleeping powder. Perfect.
It worked sleeping like a baby. Okay, through here right? We're safe in here. You can talk again now, like I said, I'm, sorry about before. If I hadn't lied about the ring, Marcelo would have been. Onto me like a shot, and I haven't got anywhere else to go if I'm chucked out of here. But I came to get you out didn't.
I come on don't be angry. Anyway, let me show you something you won't have seen before there and that's real blood on those spikes. You know, if I were to throw you in there and shut the door, your whole body would be skewered. I could make you holier than thou without so much as getting my hands dirty, not bad.
Eh? Like I said, not bad, eh, sorry. If I've confused you, the people here have a.A bit of a trust issue with me, I couldn't stick up for you before it would have backfired the man who interrogated you Marcelo. He hates me that's. Why I had to let him put you in the cells before I could help you true. I don't know anything about you. And I wasn't there when you were caught, but I do know you saved the abbot's life, because just before you were brought to the interrogation room, the sinister feeling that's been lingering in the air went away.
I must thank you for that I'm, not so ruthless. That I'd hang you out to dry and besides I couldn't stand by while there was a lady in trouble, Marcelo's a rather talented inquisitor. You know, this leads outside princess whatever come on let's go. You'd have to work pretty hard to mess up your escape from here. Anyway, I'm sorry for all the trouble.
So this is farewell may the goddess watch over you on your journey. What happened come on stay with it. Tell me what happened who on earth? Did this upstairs? Come on let's. Go you're with me right?
Thanks. This is no time to be fooling around come on Marcelo, ah, you're awake. I realize I said it before the funeral, but I just wanted to assure you that everyone knows you're innocent.
If it weren't for you, captain Marcelo could well have been killed too we're all in your debt. Anyway, the Templar captain has summoned you to his office. See you later, then don't, forget brother, I thought you said, you wouldn't have a rule breaker as a brother I'm useless.
You mean, no need to beat about the bush. Fine. I. Understand you've made yourself perfectly clear, I will leave the abbey. I will travel with these people, and I will avenge the Abbott's murder. Hello again.
Well, it looks like we'll be seeing a lot more of each other. I hope you don't mind me coming along I'm, not doing this because Marcelo ordered me to I'm doing it for abbot Francisco. He was like a father to me that jester dual magus. He can't get away with this. And this place I'll be glad to escape it's. No hardship being asked to join. You believe me.
And anyway, I promised you didn't. I said, I'd reward you for helping me so Jessica from now on I'll, protect you. I won't, leave your side. Consider me your personal bodyguard. Okay, let's hit the road.
You're. The people I met at the pub right? What are you doing here?
My ring, of course, I can still play that card. Listen. I've got a favor to ask just listen. Alright, there's, no time to argue, can't, you feel it can't. You feel the sinister presence in the abbey. I heard that a jester got into the Abbott's.
Residence, I'm convinced, he's the source of the sinister heir. I don't know what he's planning to do. But I'm sure about Francisco's life is in danger. You've got to help. I need you to get into the abbot's residence and make sure that he's all right believe me if I could go myself, I wouldn't be asking you, but it's impossible at the moment. I swear, I will reward you. Please, will you go and make sure the abbot's safe.
Thank you I'm in your debt. Now, listen carefully to what I'm about to tell you. You may. Have seen them already, but there are some obstinate idiots guarding the bridge to the Abbott's residence. You can't go that way. But if you're prepared to go the long way around there is another way to get there. You have to leave the abbey as if you are going to simpleton, but turn immediately left along the river, just follow the river along keeping the abbey in view, keep going along the river, and you'll come to a ruin it's, the old abbey that was used before this.
One there's, an underground. Passageway leading from there to the Abbott's residence, I'm afraid, that's, the only way the entrance to the ruin can be opened with the Templar ring. I gave you, so you just keep hold of it all right. Anyway, there's, no time to lose it's in your hands. Now, please help the Abbott damn where's Marcelo that sinister presence again, no not sinister it's worse than that it's, pure evil. As if all the demons of hell had gathered to feast upon Albert Francisco, it's locked from the inside Marcelo are you in. There damn what's going on it's, no good.
It won't. Budge. Elon.
Did you follow me here? Doesn't matter I need your help just one last time all right we're going to have to do this by brute force. There might just be enough of us. The door's locked from the inside. We've got to break it down come on everyone together. Yes.
The bridge is the whole abbey on fire. Surely that jester didn't come back again, oh no. I've got to save the abbot. Oh, I don't know, maybe things will never be right between us. He Marcelo.
Will never forgive me. If only we didn't share common blood, I'm sure we'd get along fine. Albert Francisco was always well known around these parts for his benevolence. He'd often taken children who had nowhere else to go. And I was one of them. My parents were well off part of the aristocracy. But then they both died all of a sudden I was left with no family and no money.
The abbey was the only place I could go, um, my mummy and daddy died. So I don't have many things, and I don't have anywhere else to go. But Angelo Marcello was the golden boy of the abbey. He studied hard and had a bright future ahead of him. But when it came to me his attitude, wasn't so positive, not long after that, I heard the full story for the first time about how I had a half brother, the product of a fling. My father had with a peasant girl before he married. He disowned the woman and her child, presumably because of his engagement to my mother.
The poor girl was heartbroken, of course, so heartbroken that she couldn't go on living. They say, and so the child was left alone in the world, that's Marcelo's story. You see that's Marcelo's story. You see as my mother had been told, she couldn't have children. My parents discussed adopting him, but the physician must have been wrong because my mother felt pregnant with me. Shortly after quite a bombshell don't.
You think I was so young and innocent then, to the whole thing hurt more than you can imagine still say, levy, my father got off lightly. He did just what he wanted and then died. And. Left me to take the consequences I'm. The only one left for Marcelo to hate now in a way I can't say I blame him, and it was probably good that we lived together.
At least it gave him someone to take it all out on certainly added a bit of spice to the humdrum life at Mayella abbey. Anyway, this story's gone on long enough, look it's, nearly daybreak that put page the adoption idea and Marcelo was unceremoniously dispatched to the abbey twice cast aside by his own father, Marcelo ended up hating him and. Hating me, naturally as he grew up among the Templar. Well, if domes has left the eastern continent, I say we head for the west and see if we can't catch up with him there, wouldn't, you say, king, trade's going to miss out again, though ladies , oh, um. You've done this before. I suppose it was a lot to ask a legend in his own mind it's as though he's forgotten who's going to be doing the actual fighting someone needs to pop. This brat's bulging ego, what's.
This it's barely even light yet. This is. Slowing us down too much.
We need to persuade charmless to go back to the castle. So that we can get the magic mirror from Flavius. If we don't hurry, formats might leave the dark ruins, and then we'll be back to square one, where are you going?
We need to go to the castle. Remember? The scholar we spoke to in Armenia said, you might know how to restore its magic. Now abbot Francisco can rest in peace, and I'm free to do as I please. How about you Jessica feeling better? Now damages has got his comeuppance. Hmm, what's wrong.
You can tell me, I'm a good listener. He wasn't making fun of you. We've just defeated del magus you and the princess should be back to normal. I don't think there's any need for that tone, we're, no more weird than any other travelers.
There's nowhere for you to run. Now we've got you cornered. We've caught up with you. Now you can't get out of this. One dull, magus for goodnesss sake, you're, not the only one who's cold, you know that dog over there is called Boris he's. The one who dug us out.
From the snow, what a dog he's a lot more use than a certain king don't, you think, and he smells a bit better too. Ah, on the subject of dogs. We had something to ask you Marta. This will sound a bit strange, but we're pursuing a big black dog.
And we heard that he might have been headed in this direction, there's, a good chance. He may have come this way have you seen anything confess? Even when you are wracked with self-doubt have faith in her divine benevolence. The goddess looks kindly upon those who. Take action stop we'll, put an end to this here. And now you're that friend of tangos's aren't you. What are you doing here?
I'm so sorry, imperia. We failed you. We couldn't save your egg.
I see your memories got worse, how much older than me are you brother? No, I won't, let you die. You will go on living knowing that the brother you despised your whole life took pity on you. I won't let you have everything your own way more than ten years.
It was more than ten years ago that I first came to the abbey having. Lost my family, and you were the first person I spoke to I had nothing, no family, no home. I was all alone. And I didn't know anyone at the abbey you were kind to me just for those first few moments, you were genuinely kind as soon as you found out who I was it changed everything.
But I never forgot that moment of kindness. You know, I really don't care. Do your worst. You can't hurt me anymore, isn't this your ring, your Templar's ring. Well, I knew we'd bring the house down, but I didn't think it would. Happen quite, so literally this show's over who'd have thought we'd ever manage it. Hmm, should be an interesting anecdote for the ladies, and I'm, a free agent.
You're men, sorry, your majesty. But I don't recall swearing allegiance to Trojan, really not one for commitment. Ah, it's been a while I came as soon as I heard the news.
So it seems we'll have the honor of escorting, the lovely princess. I just ran into yang as too same as ever I'm a busy man as you know. So I wasn't too thrilled at first that having. To drop everything and come over, but it is good to see the old gang again anyway, are you really? Alright with this wedding? Going ahead?
You don't have to stick around if it's too hard for you just do what you have to do my friend like I did when I left the abbey. Well, then see you in a bit I'll be down in the courtyard, taking a break come and find me when you're ready, hey, no need to tell the whole world. I have a certain image to maintain with my admirers that brat is unbelievable can't. Let us in on. Account of our being too common. Indeed, the preening little snob, it's been a while since the initiation, but he is still just as obnoxious as ever.
And yet tomorrow he's going to be marrying the princess. Can you believe it? Are you really going to let this happen?
If you ask me, it's your duty as chief of the palace guard to protect the princess's happiness, wait a minute, the ring, you still have the ring don't you the one that belonged to your father, if you have it with you go and show it to king. Clavius if he knew you were his nephew, he might just change his mind about this ridiculous marriage, go and find him at the lord high priest's place and see what he says it has to be worth a try. We thought you weren't coming the ceremonies.
Already started its bedlam up there with all those people. I doubt anyone would notice you among the crowd? Ah, look who it is. I was beginning to wonder if you'd left us for good, you seemed ready to throw in the towel when he got back yesterday better now, though. I see anyway, it looks like the ceremony's begun. And there are so many people I doubt anyone could do anything even if they wanted to by the way you haven't seen Jessica have you the princess summoned her yesterday? And no one seems to have seen her since it would have been about the same time you came back.
I don't. Suppose you bumped into her. Did you hey, get over here? We've got trouble king, trade and princess Medea are surrounded by soldiers down there, leave them to us. You just get the. Princess and king to to safety, it won't move an inch. What do we do?
Now actually, I found the attitude of the elders even more bizarre. It was as if they'd known about you for a long time. I seriously doubt he'll spit out the truth there, and then, but it can't hurt to try. How is it that? You know, our friend here and what's all this about fate Jessica? Are you all right? The wild lands?
Eh? I wonder mighty have been referring to the place where we found the boat. I can imagine a demon lurking somewhere. Around there we should go and explore. Ah, now, that is cheating Marcelo.
What are you doing here? Why did you come here? Marcelo. Hello. I.
