<-109: Volume 5-Chapter 2. Growing Talent->
Territories have been greeted here and there.
I waved and replied.
My reputation has been quite high here in Bataan because the territory has been plentiful since the massacre of the Orcs.
Entered into the castle with the greetings of the soldiers, I was able to meet Jeron straight away.
“Welcome, Lord. If not, I would like to discuss with you about the management of the leather workshop. … . ”
“It’s not a problem now.”
“Jero, I will go to the royal house with me.”
“… … What do you mean? ”
Xeron frowned. There was an intuition for something bothersome.
“Now is the time when we need the strength of our great man, Xeron!”
“I don’t know what’s going on, but as you can see, I can’t help but run the Karok leather workshop that the Lord has left. I believe that a good lord will do well without me. ”
“Ah, what humility. I know very well that our Jeron Deckerd is not a rotten person in this village.
Xeron was embarrassed by my complimentary offensive.
“You saw me wrong. I’m just a rotten human being in this village. ”
“Oh, my dear J. Deckerd, how humble you are. All the large vessels were humble. ”
“You don’t know how to see people yet. Originally, small people are satisfied in small neighborhoods. ”
I had a snowball fight with Xeron.
Well, the joke is here.
“I’m sorry, but what’s your name?”
“No matter what a name… … Yes?”
I took out Louis’ secretary and showed it. Xeron, who read the note with his trembling hand, tried.
“This is not your letter in print.”
“You have to deal with secrets, of course.”
“More than 100,000? What are you trying to attract me to? No! Stop me now! ”
“It’s already late. It’s a king. ”
Xeron resents me.
“Lord, are you? Did you recommend me?
“Huh, that sounds natural.”
“Yeah! Please explain the situation before and after. ”
Xeron said with a resigned face.
I have explained in detail all that has happened over the matter of the Baden River.
The more I listened to the story, the harder the facial expression of Xeron became.
In a hurry, Jeon raised up and shouted, saying that he had raised 100,000 troops.
“Are you crazy? You’re doing something dangerous! ”
“Well, I have nothing to say.”
It’s true that I’m on the plate.
“Really… … You have a tongue in the ball of Lord. What a huge deal the three nations had! How are you going to handle the after storm? ”
“Aha ha, are things serious?”
With a too serious look, I scratched my head and asked humblingly.
Xeron sighed and shook his head.
“To be honest, I also agree with Lord’s strategy. In order for the royal family to overwhelm after the festival and take the initiative of the government, it was necessary to carry out the work even at this risk. You can’t face the Hunt without the central point. ”
“However, if the Baden negotiations succeed and the toll is lowered, the trade volume of the three countries will increase. Do you know what this means? ”
At that I nodded.
“The Hontic Empire is preparing for war so much faster.”
Active trade could help the Honted Empire acquire its munitions faster.
But the risk is worth it.
“If the negotiations continue to bring diplomatic cooperation with the kingdom of Orien and lead to an alliance, it’s worth the risk.”
“Alliance with the Orien Kingdom is in favor of me too.”
“But I’m worried about one thing.”
“Can’t Emperor Kars do not think like Lord?”
“… … ! ”
I was sick.
Did Kars think like me?
“We join hands with the Hontic Empire to conquer the kingdom and divide it in half. Wouldn’t it be a much more realistic and sweet offer? ”
My fears have come.
“But you wouldn’t want to face the border with the aggressive Hant Empire, as the Orien kingdom.”
Indeed, in the past life, the Honted Empire had more than half encroached on the territory of the Orien kingdom.
I would not know the danger.
“Of course it is. But it should not be forgotten that the kingdom of Orien was once a great empire that once held continental supremacy. ”
“Yes… … . ”
“If there’s a man in the Orienne that hasn’t forgotten the glory of that distant past, Emperor Kars will definitely dig into it and make a sweet offer.”
“Then… … There will be a real war. ”
My face has hardened too. I couldn’t afford it anymore.
It seems to have done well to put Jeron in the royal court. Did you come up with a threat that I didn’t think of?
“Then there’s no time for this. I must go in two ways: to subdue after the festival, to conclude negotiations, and to prevent the Orien kingdom from passing over to the Honted Empire. ”
“Yes. I will prepare you for tomorrow. By the way, Lord. Whom would you leave this estate to when I went to the royal house? ”
“Well, I haven’t thought about it yet.”
Xeron stared at me as if it were too.
“No matter how successful you are as a business person, do you care about your village?”
“Hahaha, sorry. Do you have anyone to recommend? ”
“It’s a surprise. I will call you now. ”
Xeron said so, get up and go out.
Who is it?
If anyone believes enough to entrust their estates, I’m OK.
Honestly, the Bataan estates don’t pay much attention because they have little tax revenue and a small population.
If you have someone to act as proxy, I just want to leave it and let go.
The two men Xron brought were really surprising.
“You’ve been a long way and have a drink?”
Dean and vice presidents and vice presidents of Dean mercenaries.
“Then what you said was Dean?”
“Yes. I had a lot of work and I needed someone to help, but it was very helpful because Dean had commanded the mercenaries. ”
If only a calm and cool personal Dean could take care of the estate. The manor job would have been learned by helping Xeron, so no problem.
“The problem is that the two men are mercenaries so they can’t leave their estates, but if they’re no longer mercenaries, no problem.”
“That means… … . ”
Surprised, Dean and Rex knelt at me.
“I will only answer you today if you suggested to us as an article. Please take us as an article, Lord. ”
“I decided to have all the mercenaries of our army.”
At the words of the two, I was happy to run.
I was excited and raised them up.
“Thank you for choosing to follow me. Don’t worry about the price in the future! ”
Dean and Rex laughed at me.
So they became my article. The 50 mercenaries they commanded were also included in our territory.
I ordered Dean to rule over the estates while I was away.
Dean was pleasantly surprised.
The next day, I set off with Xeron.
I had told him to come to the palace within a month, and now it had been a week and had no time to delay.
“Are you going right to Redden?”
“no. I’m going to stop by Kunt’s own law for a while. I have someone to take. ”
“I don’t care. I’ve been struggling for a while, but I can’t wait. For reference, I have little experience of traveling long distance, so I will trust only the Lord for all matters such as camping and eating. ”
“I’m an unofficial one, too? How dare you make me chore? ”
“What do-it-yourself go all the way without servants or guards?”
“Well you are. Do you keep coming out of me before? ”
“Remember who caused me to suffer? As scheduled, I would have enjoyed the life of Anbin Island as a new identity in the kingdom of Orien. ”
If you had lived before, you had to work to live there to defend the kingdom.
We fought a fight all along the way.
Either or not, the wagons of gambling were running northward at high speed.
