The Happy Farm of the Fallen Noble Daughter ~A Slow Remote Wasteland Life Exploration with My Dearest~ – Chapter 91

Chapter 91: Return of the King

While Diana is giving food to the militia, Leon and George run to the mountain hut.

If they don’t convey that they are not enemies, they won’t know what actions that cowardly king will take.

Running past the people who are preoccupied with their meals, the two open the mountain hut.

The emaciated king is trembling in the corner of the hut.

“So, you’re the king.”

George said with his usual disrespectful attitude.

“Don’t worry, old man Henry. It doesn’t seem like they’ve come to kill you.”

At Leon’s words, the king cautiously raises his face.

“Because you fled, the royal army couldn’t move. It seems that the ones causing havoc in the city are the Pope’s army. The people want to find you and defeat the Pope’s army.”

Then…

The king, who had been trembling, suddenly regained his composure and stood up.

“Is that true?”

Seeing the obvious change in the king’s expression, the brothers exchanged a worried glance.

“…Yes, it is. So, for now, we should reorganize the royal army. Do you have any connections?”

“That’s right… I’m in trouble because I don’t.”

“In that case, you should seek cooperation from the people. If we dare to be more demanding, we should also look for more powerful allies…”

As the king pondered, footsteps from afar approached them.

When the three of them stuck their heads out of the cabin, Diana, riding her beloved horse Regina, was there.

Leading the people, she stood tall, a majestic pregnant woman.

Seeing that, George patted Leon’s back.

“Hey, it’s the arrival of the goddess of victory.”

Leon was pushed out of the cabin and welcomed his wife.

“Diana! What on earth…”

“Oh, Leon. Since everyone wanted to meet the king, I brought them along.”

“Hey, seriously…”

The people dismounted their horses and looked through the windows of the cabin to see the king inside.

There, they saw the king living in an empty room, emaciated.

Diana entered the cabin and spoke eloquently.

“To ensure His Majesty’s safety from the Pope’s army, he hid in the borderlands near this border and waited for the right moment. This is all for the sake of the country! If he were killed by the Pope’s army, this country would have no choice but to continue fighting against Eisenstadt.”

The people exchanged glances.

“For now, we must unite as citizens and avoid civil war. From now on, His Majesty will surrender to Eisenstadt as planned. His Majesty has made the decision to stop the war!”

At that moment…

The people cheered with joy. Meanwhile, King Hendrick IV turned pale.

“W-Wait…!”

“The fact that he is here along the border is the best proof. With allies now, His Majesty can cross this border at any time and be prepared to stop the war!”

“Hey, stop it.”

“With the power of everyone, please safely escort Your Majesty to Eisenstadt. The arrangements have already been made there.”

“?!”

“Yes, I will provide preserved food. Dried boar meat. Please use it to survive the long journey to Eisenstadt. Before the Pope’s army finds you!”

King Hendrick IV was left speechless. Leon was dumbfounded, and George turned his face away, trying to hold back his laughter.

“Hail, King Hendrick IV!”

Voices came from the people.

“Hail!”

“Hail!”

The voices praising King Hendrick IV echoed in the borderlands, and the people became lively.

“Just wait, Diana. I’m still…”

The flustered king, Diana smiled and nodded.

“Please rest assured. I have already contacted Gustav from Ishtar Trading Company, and the matter has been settled.”

“What?!”

“We immediately sent our messenger to Eisenstadt. We requested the guarantee of Your Majesty’s safety. All that’s left is to go there, accept their terms of surrender, and sign the agreement. How about that? Isn’t it a simple mission?”

“Well, however…”

“The actions of the Papal Army have created a favorable situation. King Hendrick IV will be remembered by the people as a hero who stopped the civil war, rather than a king who led the country to defeat.”

“Ugh, uuu…”

With all the preparations in place, the king, who could no longer escape or hide, burst into tears.

“Oh, His Majesty seems to be shedding tears of joy in response to the voices of the people.”

Saying so with an exuberant voice, Diana turned to the crowd.

As a signal, Leon and George stood on either side, lifting King Hendrick IV to his feet. As if being escorted, the king was taken outside the cabin.

The carriage from Ishtar Trading Company arrived. 

Inside the carriage, Duke McGallen and Gustav were already present.

“Hey, Diana. We’re ready over here too.”

“Thank you. Please, the two of you, work together and safely deliver His Majesty.”

“Well, I didn’t expect you to be hiding in a place like this. Your Majesty, rest assured. Duke McGallen is the oldest and most prestigious military figure in Eisenstadt. I am Gustav, the owner of Ishtar Trading Company, the largest patron of the Eisenstadt royal family. With the efforts of these two, the King of Eisenstadt will have no choice but to agree not to harm you.”

Everything was in place.

King Hendrick IV was sandwiched between the people and powerful figures from the enemy country, and further surrounded by the people as he headed north to the border.

In front of Diana’s house, Ilsa and Sofia prayed for the safety of their respective partners and waved handkerchiefs.

While watching that, Leon approached Diana and embraced her shoulder from the side.

“You idiot.”

Leon’s voice was rough, but he showed a tired smile.

“I told you to stay at home, didn’t I?!”

“But, I want to stop the chaos as soon as possible.”

“Normally, only the king can stop the chaos, you know!”

“Oh really? It seems even a pregnant woman can stop it.”

“Oh come on…”

George silently watched the exchange between the two couples.
