C153

Given that the portrait in the search brochure was not visible, Liena did not consider the strange reaction of the security guard to be a significant issue.

Liena opened her mouth once again, thinking that he must have frozen because it was the first time in her life that she encountered someone of such a high rank as a princess.

"Oh, and before that, please bring me something to eat. It's a pity, but I haven't eaten in several days."

Then the guard took something from his arms, but contrary to Liena's expectations, it was not food.

Soon, a metallic object clicked around Liena's wrist.

"Liena, you are being arrested on charges of large-scale investment fraud."

Said the agent who handcuffed Liena.

"What?"

Liena simply blinked because she did not understand his words and actions.

However, instead of explaining, the agent loudly shouted inside the security office.

"I caught Liena!"

In an instant, all eyes were on them.

Security guards ran towards Liena, throwing passionate glances at them.

"Oh my God! It's really Liena!"

"Hey, rookie! Did you catch her?"

"I searched the entire capital and couldn't find a single hair. Where did you get her from?"

The security team member who held Liena's arm tightly as if to prevent her from escaping scratched his cheek.

"Did she come in by herself?"

"Why? Did she say she came to surrender?"

"Well, she didn't say anything like that."

Investment fraud? Arrest?

"Wait a moment, what does all this mean?"

Liena looked at the security guards and asked, but they completely ignored Liena's words and continued talking among themselves.

"Anyway, it's fine, it's fine! How incredible that an outpost security force like us caught such a big fish!"

"We're finally free from overtime!"

"Rookie, you have a special talent at this level!"

"Haha, I didn't do much."

In the end, Liena was taken to the prisoner carriage without receiving any explanation.

After a while, she found herself in a familiar place.

The interrogation room of the Imperial Palace prison. A place where those who have committed serious crimes of interest to the imperial family are brought.

Even a few months ago, Liena had been investigated several times here as the owner of the Iver Guild.

At that time, she was clearly acquitted of all charges, and the case was closed, so why was she brought here again?

"Hey! What the hell is this?"

Liena could not understand it at all and shouted as soon as she saw the investigator who entered the interrogation room.

"Why bring me back here?! I know nothing about Iver's crimes!"

The investigator looked at her bewildered.

"What are you talking about? What does Iver have to do with this?"

"Then why did I come here?"

"Do you ask because you don't know? You're here for the investment money you received to build something called a warp portal."

"What?"

Seeing Liena's reaction, the investigator laughed as if it were ridiculous.

"Ah. Are you going to keep acting ignorant? It's a quite cliché tactic. Whenever they get caught, they say they know nothing and wash their hands."

"N-no! I really don't know! How do you know about the warp portals? And what do you mean I took the investment money and ran away?"

"If you're going to pretend you don't know until the end, read this. I don't plan to spend energy explaining it."

The investigator pulled out one of the documents he had brought and held it in front of Liena.

It seemed to be the synopsis of an event.

Liena frantically read the content of the document where Bunny appeared in the first line.

It took quite some time to read a single document.

It's not that the content was difficult. Although she read it once, twice, and reread it three times, she couldn't leave the newspaper because she couldn't believe it.

After reading it four times, Liena managed to accept her situation.

The document that Liena had in her hand was so crumpled that its original form was unrecognizable.

"...Isaac, that bastard!"

The only person capable of such a bold act was Isaac Cassius, to whom Liena had given full authority over the Bunny business.

Indeed, she had given up hope that the Bunny business would run smoothly from the moment she was locked up.

But she never would have imagined that he committed fraud by revealing the suspended warp portal plan.

"I feel wronged!"

Liena looked at the investigator and shouted.

"All of this was planned by my uncle Isaac Cassius without my knowledge! I had almost no involvement in the operation of the Bunny Merchant Group!"
