“It’s a shame. There’s an empty plot of land, but unable to touch it.”
Viscount Guy Lamonte of Istel Kingdom, shook his head while he wet his taste buds.
Guy secretly met with Baron Noel Kyword of the Byron Kingdom, as a representative of the Istel Kingdoma few years ago to form a coalition between the two countries.
At the time, Byron Kingdom and Istel Kingdom joined forces to attack Pershion Kingdom, but they were defeated by the 2nd Prince Manus Pershion.
Until then, Guy, who stood out among the young aristocrats, had been responsible for the defeat and had been forced into seclusion, that wasn’t really a seclusion, for a long time.
Fortunately, Peid Nail, who had agreed to join him, was once again in power, and he was able to emerge as a key figure in the Istel kingdom.
“It’s better not to be greedy. Roan Lancephil is not worth messing with.”
The belonger of the soft voice was Viscount Peid Nail .
He was a man who obtained a noble title in the last battle with Rinse Kingdom, by retreating his troops to safety from a disadvantageous position.
In his past life, he was also called Battlefield’s Fox.
He shook his head as he looked west.
“We can’t afford to make stupid mistakes again.”
HIs point of view was the eastern border of Rinse Kingdom.
Guy went up next to Peid and whispered to him in a small voice.
“But this time and last time is definitely different. Although Roan Lancephil has flattened the
central and southern part of Rinse Kingdom, it’s honestly an empty one. By comparison, North Rinse Kingdom was one step away from the war, and the control of all of Duke Webster’s forces gave him more power than we thought. We’re also working on the Estian Empire Army, which is based with Mills Voiza.”
His words picked up a little faster.
“If we add strength to the Byron Kingdom and our Istel Kingdom, even Roan Lancephil won’t be able to withstand it.”
It was certainly a valid point.
Nevertheless, Peid shook his head with a neutral expression.
“Viscount Lamonte. Certainly you’re right. But I’m a little unwilling.”
His view and his eyes turned back.
Two pupils turned to see one of the many troops before him.
‘Nuns of Count Lancephil’s …….’
Nuns. (TL: written in English in the raw)
Along with Swift, who persuaded Viscount Heath Potter to join the Roan camp, he was one of six talents later called unto Lancephil’s brain.
He was originally accompanied by the Istel Kingdom army, but now must remain with count Lancephil and watch over the administrative duties.
“Are you looking at that them again sir?”
Guy turned his head following Peid’s gaze, and he quickly made a blank expression.
He didn’t like Nuns very much.
Peid’s eyes, on the other hand, were lit with admiration.
“I’ve decided to go beyond the persuasion of the Nuns and stand on the side of Roan Lancephil, not North Rinse Kingdom.”
It was amazing.
It was already known that Byron Kingdom and Istel Kingdom had partnered with Clay.
However, there was a misleading story from the mouth of the Commander-in-Chief, who led the Istel Kingdom.
Guy exhaled out a short sigh.
“Well, not yet. Whether or not to work with Roan Lancephil is a decision after the informant that was sent to Rinse Kingdom returns.”
He drew a clear line.
But Peid still sounded totally misleading.
“Aren’t they great?”
“Yes? Who is?”
Guy frowned his visage and asked.
Peid still looked at Nuns and answered with a small voice.
“Those Nuns. Count Lancephil is doing administrative work, and there are five more people like my brothers, and he says he’s the most unskilled one compared to them.”
“It’s most likely just a humility.”
Guy wryly smiled and shook his head.
It was true that he didn’t like Nuns, but he had to admit their abilities.
He did not want to believe that Nuns were, in fact, the border administrators, and that he was the least capable of any of his subordinates.
‘If that’s true, Count Lancephil’s power is the same as a country.’
Guy shook his head.
His mind was conflicted.
A horse ran fast on the west Rinse Kingdom border.
Guy’s face brightened.
“The informant is back.”
Peid who was looking at the Nuns and looked west.
An informant on a sturdy warhorse rushed to the front of his feet.
“Greetings, sir commander-in-Chief.”
The informant quickly stepped off the horse and knelt on one knee.
“What is the situation like?”
When Peid asked in a low voice, the informant bowed his head and responded back quickly.
“The Lancephil Fief Army captured five citadels in North Rinse Kingdom and one major stronghold of Fief, just ten days after the war began.”
Guy frowned at the unexpected report.
“Is that true? Compared to North Rinse Kingdom, didn’t Lancephil Fief Army have less than half of their strength?”
The informant nodded.
“That’s right. However, the report is clear. The North Rinse Kingdom army is not an opponent of the Lancephil Fief Army. In addition, the Kingdom people declared their support for Roan Lancephil, not only in Rinse Kingdom, but also in some Fief of north rinse kingdoms.”
“How great. They went to war, and got the support of people in the kingdom.”
Peid exclaimed with admiration.
Guy, on the other hand, still looked as if it was still too hard to believe.
“Most likely the North Rinse Kingdom side underestimated them. Otherwise, such a one-sided outcome would not have come to fruition.”
The informant nodded.
“That’s right. Surely there were such answers, but…….”
He smiled awkwardly and blurred out the end.
Guy looked anxious.
The informant answered with a small voice, as if swallowing a dry needle.
“I heard the news just before I crossed the border. Estia Empire’s Viscount Heather Myers led 30,000 Empire Army to McGinley Fief….”.
“That’s right! He finally thought it was a good time to do it.”
Guy stalled and clapped his hands while enjoying himself.
The informant’s face hardened.
He sighed briefly and continued.
“He was struck by Roan Lancephil’s strategy, and Viscount Heather Myers lost his life and Myers Corps withdrew after nearly 20,000 casualties.”
Guy, that laughing merrily, opened his mouth and let out a muffled sound that was not quite a quiet one.
Now, he was so amazed that he was only able to blink.
Peid, on the other hand, nodded with a faint smile, seemingly as if it was natural.
“Yes. Good work.You’re dismissed.”
The informant answered briefly and drove the horse into the back of the military.
Even then, Guy was in blank state with his mouth open, left his tongue hanging out as if he couldn’t believe it.
“How could this happen?”
Peid replied briefly.
Guy nodded with the sound of wetting his mouth.
At this point, he had no choice but to admit it.
Peid asked in a small voice.
“How about it? Do you still think you should work with North Rinse Kingdom, rather than with Roan Lancephil?”
A mischievous question.
Guy smiled awkwardly and shook his head.
“No. After all, Viscount Nails’s judgment was correct. Roan Lancephil is a man who should never be made an enemy of. It would be much more advantageous to accept his offer than to fight him.”
“I think so as well.”
“It would be much more beneficial to fight with Roan Lancephil and get back the land of our Kingdom, which they bought, than to lose the war reparations to Rinse Kingdom.”
Guy nodded silently.
Everything was decided.
Peid smiled faintly and spoke in a mischievous voice.
