@mjkj: For sure ^_^ They can't spare anyone to go after the prince, which was basically Rosanne's plan. The timing, the middle of the night, was also her plan, because everyone in Celyse's kingdom would be asleep and unable to mobilize fast. But they will be over to help, once they figure out what's going on ^_^
@TriaElf9: Also, I think they are not so eager to send soldiers on mission which ends up with half of them burning and half frozen. I mean, the soldiers were not enough to protect the castle, they are not likely to win over Rosanne in open field.
@hkmaly: That too, though the explosion was an actual incendiary device (I don't mention it in the story b/c it's not that important), so they'd just have to worry about the ice powers ^_^;;; But yeah, anyone non-magic who goes up against her is no match, pretty much.
