Partutti said in a firm voice.ย 

โ€œYour Excellency. The scoundrels of this city do not appreciate Your Excellencyโ€™s grace at all. Even though You have shown such compassion.โ€

The orc was egging Johan on as if he had made up his mind. In fact, he was confident.ย ย 

From Johanโ€™s position, he had no choice but to be dissatisfied with this city!

Although Johan had become the new master of the hundred kingdoms, he was extremely cautious in wielding his power. His caution was unbelievable for a violent conqueror.ย ย 

They didnโ€™t show any loyalty in return for being so considerate of the city. Itโ€™s no wonder the new Count would be angry enough to wave his sword around.ย ย 

โ€œIt is frustrating.โ€ย ย 

However, Johan didnโ€™t think much of it. Because his concepts of honor, loyalty and obedience were quite different.

The nobles thought themselves naturally honorable and that others should respect that honor, and they got angry when that was violated because they felt their own value was damaged.ย ย 

But Johan reacted like โ€˜๐˜–๐˜ฉ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ข๐˜ต ๐˜ค๐˜ข๐˜ฏ ๐˜ฉ๐˜ข๐˜ฑ๐˜ฑ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฏโ€™ or โ€˜๐˜ ๐˜ฅ๐˜ช๐˜ฅ๐˜ฏโ€™๐˜ต ๐˜ฆ๐˜น๐˜ฑ๐˜ฆ๐˜ค๐˜ต ๐˜ฎ๐˜ถ๐˜ค๐˜ฉ ๐˜ญ๐˜ฐ๐˜บ๐˜ข๐˜ญ๐˜ต๐˜บ ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜บ๐˜ธ๐˜ข๐˜บ.โ€™ In the first place, he didnโ€™t even expect genuine loyalty from the hundred kingdomโ€™s nobles.

โ€œCall the soldiers and have them arrest these scoundrels and put them on trial. I will testify.โ€

โ€˜๐˜๐˜ฆ ๐˜ด๐˜ฆ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฎ๐˜ด ๐˜ต๐˜ฐ ๐˜ฉ๐˜ข๐˜ท๐˜ฆ ๐˜ฃ๐˜ถ๐˜ช๐˜ญ๐˜ต ๐˜ถ๐˜ฑ ๐˜ฒ๐˜ถ๐˜ช๐˜ต๐˜ฆ ๐˜ข ๐˜จ๐˜ณ๐˜ถ๐˜ฅ๐˜จ๐˜ฆ.โ€™

Partuttiโ€™s words reeked of blood. He seemed to have built up quite a grudge against the masters of other guilds.ย ย 

The grudge of not receiving proper treatment as the guild representative and being ignored did not disappear easily. Partutti was determined to take revenge on them and seize control of the city if he could.

โ€œThe city soldiers are also there, if we try that, they wonโ€™t just stand still.โ€ย 

โ€œOn the pretext of monsters, call additional soldiers. In the meantime, I will bribe the mercenary officers. If you want, I can set the city on fire, so take that chance to subdue the masters. . .โ€

โ€œ. . . . . .โ€

Johan was slightly refreshed. There was a reason why Partutti pretended to be clever with his own brain.ย ย 

It must have been clear that whenever he was ignored by the city guys, he mentally pictured how to burn down the city.

โ€˜๐˜–๐˜ฉ ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฐ. ๐˜ ๐˜ด๐˜ฉ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ๐˜ญ๐˜ฅ๐˜ฏโ€™๐˜ต ๐˜ง๐˜ข๐˜ญ๐˜ญ ๐˜ง๐˜ฐ๐˜ณ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ข๐˜ต ๐˜ธ๐˜ฉ๐˜ช๐˜ด๐˜ฑ๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ.โ€™ย ย 

For a moment, Johan was also tempted to be refreshed, but held back. It would be nice to just sweep away with force, but the aftermath was entirely Johanโ€™s share.

Contrary to what many believed, Johan was not a conqueror who solely believed in and pushed with force. The most powerful of Johanโ€™s virtues was precisely that patience.

โ€œItโ€™s too extreme. I donโ€™t want to see the blood of the innocent.โ€

Partutti pouted when Johan wasnโ€™t looking. He seemed to want to see quite a bit of blood.

โ€œStill, shouldnโ€™t I hear how this happened?โ€

โ€œOf course!โ€

โ€œCall the guild representatives.โ€

Partutti grinned slyly. Seeing the mercenaries rushing out, it looked like it was going to be a good day.

โ€œI trusted you.โ€ย ย 

At Johanโ€™s words, the guild representatives looked at each other in puzzlement. As veterans, they sensed something was wrong in Johanโ€™s words.

โ€œEven when the nobles were chattering about your disloyalty, I didnโ€™t believe it. Because I believed you would not be disloyal even though you received autonomy.โ€

โ€œYo. . . Your Excellency. Have we done something wrong?โ€

Instead of answering, Johan slammed his fist angrily on the armrest. The chair, made of rock hewn from solid rock, shattered into pieces.ย ย 

In an instant, the atmosphere became brutal and the council members couldnโ€™t even breathe, bowing their heads.

When someone who was originally gentle gets angry, it is even more scary.ย ย 

Those who had gotten used to Johanโ€™s magnanimous appearance until now were scared to death.

โ€˜. . .๐˜ ๐˜ฅ๐˜ช๐˜ฅ๐˜ฏโ€™๐˜ต ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜ต๐˜ฆ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ต๐˜ฐ ๐˜ฃ๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ๐˜ข๐˜ฌ ๐˜ช๐˜ต.โ€™ย ย 

Inwardly Johan clicked his tongue. It wasnโ€™t even a shabby chair, so it was a pity.

โ€œMy words are not over yet.โ€

โ€œS-Sorry!โ€

โ€œI can understand hastily going hunting after hearing false rumors, but I can never forgive conspiring secretly with the Emperorโ€™s envoys.โ€ย ย 

โ€œ!!!!!โ€

Johanโ€™s words hit them like getting hit in the head with a sledgehammer. They didnโ€™t expect to be called because of this.

โ€˜๐˜๐˜ฐ๐˜ธ??โ€™

โ€˜๐˜๐˜ด ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ข ๐˜ด๐˜ฑ๐˜บ ๐˜ข๐˜ฎ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ๐˜จ ๐˜ถ๐˜ด?โ€™

Only a few knew about this. . .

โ€œNo answer, huh.โ€

โ€œAh. . . no! Your Excellency! There has been a misunderstanding!โ€ย ย 

โ€œThat misunderstanding produces quite a bit, doesnโ€™t it? Will there be more misunderstandings in the future?โ€

So confused, the representatives couldnโ€™t even come up with lame excuses. They panicked and hemmed and hawed. Next to him, Fahid of the Mulc family carefully opened his mouth.

โ€œYour Excellency. Would they really conspire with the Emperor? There must have been some mistake. Give them a chance to prove their loyalty.โ€

โ€œWhat chance are you talking about?โ€

โ€œIf they are loyal to Your Excellency, they will capture and offer up the Emperorโ€™s envoys now. Please allow them to do so.โ€

โ€œNo. . . wait. . .โ€ย ย 

As the flustered master tried to stop Fahid, Johanโ€™s intense gaze poured down on him. He hastily bowed his head.

โ€˜๐˜๐˜ง ๐˜บ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถโ€™๐˜ณ๐˜ฆ ๐˜จ๐˜ฐ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜จ ๐˜ต๐˜ฐ ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฅ๐˜ช๐˜ข๐˜ต๐˜ฆ, ๐˜บ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ ๐˜ด๐˜ฉ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ๐˜ญ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฅ๐˜ช๐˜ข๐˜ต๐˜ฆ ๐˜ฑ๐˜ณ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฑ๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ๐˜ญ๐˜บ, ๐˜บ๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ ๐˜ฃ๐˜ข๐˜ด๐˜ต๐˜ข๐˜ณ๐˜ฅ!โ€™

He couldnโ€™t think that Fahid was colluding with Johan, so he could only complain inwardly.ย 

If they captured and offered up the envoys in the name of the city, the aftermath would be the cityโ€™s responsibility. How would the viscount or the Emperor judge them. No matter how much they pleaded their case, it wouldnโ€™t be accepted.

โ€œThat would be good. They wonโ€™t be able to offer it. Right?โ€

โ€œWe. . . we will offer them. Please wait a moment, Your Majesty!โ€ย ย 

First of all, you have to solve the problem at hand. With tears held back, the representatives shouted. Thinking about the damage of assets that would occur in the Emperorโ€™s fiefdom because of this, their hearts already ached.
