“You still haven’t settled this! It’s been two years already!

What are you taking so long for!”

“Even if you say that. . .”

“I can’t sell the magic stones because of that barrier, and the stock is piling up like a mountain. . .

All the miners have run away. . .I have no more money!

The Duke Samaras family will be ruined!!”

To Duke Samaras, who is shouting angrily while trembling,

The king is shrinking in size, but still offering a rebuttal.

No matter how many complaints are made, some things are just impossible.

To begin with, the cause of this problem was,

Duke Samaras and his sister, the queen, who tried to usurp Eugenis’ throne.

The king just sent the letters as instructed.

It was the Duke who thought of the content, and the king only signed it.

Even so, he thought it was unreasonable to be shouted at every time they met.

Today, as well, he is sending letters of apology to Eugenis.

Every single day, he’s sending them as much as possible, but he hasn’t received a response even once.

He writes and signs the apology, being hurried by a civil official.

The king is doing what he can.

Nobody tells him what else he should do, even if he’s scolded.

“That’s enough! Command Eugenis to lift that barrier!”

“Eh? A command, not an apology?”

“Yes! If they continue the barrier, 

Threaten to annihilate all of Eugenis’ royalty!”

“There’s no way I can say something like that!”

The king had been educated as royalty to some extent.

He knew that, as king, he could not command other countries’ royalty, 

But Duke Samaras in front of him was more terrifying.

“If you say you can’t, send the king’s head to Eugenis right now.

If the royalty takes responsibility, 

Eugenis won’t be able to refuse.”

“Hiiee.”

The Duke, smiling and reaching for the sword at his waist, 

The king had no choice but to tremble.

Bringing a sword into the audience chamber itself was impossible.

But Duke Samaras had the power to make that impossible thing possible.

“What will you do? I don’t care either way.”

“I, I, I underst. . .”

“That’s enough.”

The one who stopped the king as he was about to say he understood due to overwhelming fear was,

Prince Raymon, who had entered the audience chamber unnoticed at some point.

Behind him was the second prince, Daniel.

“Oh, what’s going on, Raymon.”

Duke Samaras had no doubt that his nephew, Crown Prince Raymon, would side with him.

Rather than a king who leaves everything to others and doesn’t conduct proper politics,

He thought it would be better to side with himself, a powerful Duke.

Indeed, the Crown Prince had never defied him so far.

But the Crown Prince coldly declared, without a hint of a smile.

“Cedric・Samaras. Arrest him for treason against His Majesty the King!”

At the Crown Prince’s command, the guards all turned toward the Duke.

To the Duke who, surprised yet ready to draw his sword and fight back,

Guardsmen emerged from somewhere and mercilessly struck him down.

“Uwaaaaah!”

His right arm was deeply slashed, causing the Duke to drop his sword, and swords were aimed at him, surrounding him.

The Duke, breathing heavily,

Pressing his bleeding arm, glared at the crown prince.

“Raymon! What does this mean!!”

“You still don’t understand? How foolish.”

“What did you say?!”

“Duke Samaras. I am the crown prince, and my father is the king. Understand?”

“What about it!”

“You are a noble, and we are royalty. That status will never change.

You threatened the king and aimed your sword at him; you will be arrested for treason.”

“What? Is there evidence?”

“That sword is the evidence. It’s not allowed in the audience chamber,

And drawing it without the king’s permission is unthinkable. Both are serious crimes.”

“. . .You’ll arrest me over something so trivial?”

“It’s disrespectful to call that trivial,

And it shows that you’ve become so arrogant that you can’t even see it for yourself.

Shameful. . .and to think that my great-grandfather was a great Duke.”

“That thing. . .What’s so great about it!”

Knowing well that he deeply despised his grandfather who had ended the war, 

The crown prince deliberately praised him in front of him.

The crown prince couldn’t forgive his uncle who intentionally tried to start a war.

His anger was even more infuriating precisely because it was directed at a family member.

“That’s enough. Take him away.”

“Wait! Listen to me! Raymon! Hey!”

The Duke is dragged away by the guards.

Blood trails on the floor. I don’t think his life is in danger, but he is undoubtedly seriously injured.

“. . .Th, thank you. . .Raymon.”

“Father. . .now you understand, don’t you.”
