โ€œDonโ€™t be fooled, young pagan noble!โ€ย 

The mercenary cheered for the opponent without realizing it. Saying the wrong thing here could cause trouble for the familyโ€™s future.

Of course Johan wasnโ€™t the kind of narrow-minded person who would drastically reduce the familyโ€™s status just because he heard a few words of dissatisfaction. But the mercenaries didnโ€™t know that.

To the mercenaries, the young noble had just dipped his toe into the abyss of hell.

โ€œWhether you believe in one god or two gods, what does it matter! Itโ€™s our nobles who rule these countries, not the priests!โ€

Johanโ€™s words seemed to have struck the young nobleโ€™s pride. Because the countries were mixed with all kinds of races flowing in, religion was also quite diverse.

From the monotheistic denomination on the continent to the polytheistic religions of the East, and the old indigenous faiths that were hard to find on the continent. . .

On the outside, they would believe in polytheism according to the previous Countโ€™s religion, but according to their roots, some nobles still believed in the indigenous gods. To these nobles, the priests of polytheism were quite annoying.ย 

Those who carry gods on their backs and strut about!

โ€œWhy are you getting angry?โ€

โ€œAhem. It seems His Excellency is a little drunk.โ€

A servant quickly interrupted. The noble also realized he had made a mistake and shut his mouth. It wouldnโ€™t be good to let everyone know he didnโ€™t have faith.ย 

โ€œUm. . . And the rumors that he is cruel and greedy are false. He has shown such mercy to his enemies, how can he be called cruel?โ€

Johan was surprised by the unexpectedly favorable evaluation. He got a better reaction than he expected. He had thought there would be an uproar, shouting โ€˜๐˜›๐˜ฉ๐˜ข๐˜ต ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜ท๐˜ข๐˜ฅ๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ ๐˜ช๐˜ด ๐˜ข ๐˜ค๐˜ณ๐˜ถ๐˜ฆ๐˜ญ ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ฅ๐˜ฆ๐˜ด๐˜ฑ๐˜ช๐˜ค๐˜ข๐˜ฃ๐˜ญ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ฎ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ!โ€™ But. . .

In addition to Johanโ€™s patience shown in the countries, his reputation as a knight also played a big role.ย 

Although reputation had no substance, its power was formidable.ย ย 

Once built, that reputation carried over to foreign lands.

โ€œAnd arenโ€™t you warriors working under the new Count? Is it okay to insult your employer like that?โ€

โ€œTo be precise, we are looking for a new master now, so no.โ€

The nobleโ€™s expression was contemptuous at Johanโ€™s words.ย 

He was going to treat them as mercenaries working under the Count, but it turned out they were deserters running away like stray dogs!ย 

If he had known from the beginning, he wouldnโ€™t have treated them this way. He whispered to his servant.

After that, no more alcohol or food was refilled. As the bottom became visible, the banquet also ended. The mercenaries left, grumbling.

โ€œNo, you should have just kept saying you were working under Count instead of denying it for no reason. . .โ€

No mercenary disliked good alcohol and food.ย 

Besides, if the truth came out later, that noble would probably cry and give them silver too.

โ€œBut you are working under me, no?โ€

โ€œ. . . . . .โ€

โ€œIโ€™m kidding. I just wanted to see a proper reaction for once. You probably become more careful with your words in front of mercenaries working under you too.โ€

โ€œAre you satisfied?โ€

โ€œTo some extent. The people who sent the report didnโ€™t lie.โ€

At Johanโ€™s words, the mercenaries nodded in satisfaction. Although they didnโ€™t get good alcohol, food, or soft beds, they were still happy that their master was building a proper reputation.

Mercenaries who covet gold also have their pride. They were sensitive about what their superiors or masters said about others.

After that, Johan visited several more families. Thanks to his experience, the mercenaries also became skilled at acting.

Most showed satisfactory reactions. They were friendly, pledged loyalty. . .ย 

It was encouraging that they at least showed neutral reactions. It was enough if they said they would judge based on future rule.

In fact, those who were hostile enough to rebel had already rebelled and been suppressed by Johan. But still, this was something.ย ย 

Seeing the situation, they didnโ€™t seem to dream of a new rebellion. It was fine to allow them to complain behind his back to some extent.

โ€œThe weather is quite hot.โ€

โ€œDo you want to rest for a bit?โ€

โ€œItโ€™s not that bad.โ€

The sunlight was quite hot, but the air was not humid so it was bearable. When you ride along the forest, it cooled down immediately.

โ€œI heard that vampires donโ€™t feel the heat, is that true?โ€

โ€œOur blood is rather cold.โ€

The thin, pale skin of the vampires maintained its coldness no matter how hot it was outside. They claimed it was thanks to their cold blood. Johan wondered if that made sense, but. . .

โ€œThanks to that, itโ€™s quite easy to endure even when the weather is hot as long as we avoid sunlight.โ€

โ€œI see.โ€ย 

โ€œIt is said that if you hug a vampire lover to sleep on a hot day, you can sleep well until the next day.โ€

โ€œ. . .Are you joking with me now?โ€

Johan was confused by Fahidโ€™s words. It was a bit surprising to hear such words from a vampire knight who looked so sincere. Mercenaries love vulgar jokes very much, but. . .

โ€œI-Iโ€™m sorry.โ€

โ€œNo, it was funny. You can talk about Eastern stories anytime.โ€

Fahidโ€™s facial expression brightened at Johanโ€™s words.

Despite his fierce combat power, Johan had a talent for listening to othersโ€™ words.

When talking in front of him, people would casually reveal what was on their minds, forgetting about status and position.

Johanโ€™s sincere interest in Eastern stories moved the Mulc family knights.ย 

โ€œI said it because I thought you would enjoy it, but itโ€™s not a joke. Vampires, or vampyrs in the Empire language, right?โ€

โ€œThatโ€™s right, just speak however you like. I donโ€™t really care.โ€

โ€œRight now, the Sultanโ€™s most favored concubine is also a vampyr.โ€
