Our appearance as envoys of Demon King Ingral seemed to greatly surprise General Kytes, but his surprise didnโ€™t last long.

โ€œThe Demon King must have been quite a character, right?โ€

His words might encapsulate his feelings.

He quickly scans the letter and nods heavily.

โ€œIf the Demon King is willing to make such concessions, the negotiations might go smoothly.โ€

โ€œI donโ€™t know the details, but are the terms favorable for the Lintrite Kingdom?โ€

โ€œNot so much favorable as equal.โ€

It seems that he is offering conditions such as refugee relief and humanitarian aid.

In return, Lintrite doesnโ€™t have to bear anything.

In other words, itโ€™s a proposal to move forward as equal friends.

Thereโ€™s no demand for territory or tribute, so itโ€™s truly equal.

Considering the difference in national power, the terms could be considered extraordinary.

โ€œThen, letโ€™s go see His Majesty right away. Itโ€™s a good opportunity, so Lionel, you should come along. It will be a good learning experience.โ€

โ€œAs for me, I donโ€™t particularly want to be remembered by His Majestyโ€ฆโ€

โ€œYouโ€™re still a young man who doesnโ€™t have a shred of ambition.โ€

The general spread his hands with a sigh.

Donโ€™t be so exasperated.

After all, Iโ€™m just the leader of an adventurer clan in the city.

Iโ€™m not in a position to have an audience with the king. Not originally.

โ€œWhy donโ€™t you take this opportunity to curry favor with His Majesty and have your clan made into the royal guard?โ€

โ€œThatโ€™s ridiculousโ€ฆโ€

Itโ€™s probably impossible to become the royal guard, but itโ€™s not unheard of for an adventurer clan or mercenary clan to be made into regular soldiers for their achievements.

And then, some of the leaders and others are knighted.

Thatโ€™s especially popular in the epic poems sung by bards.

Such rags-to-riches stories.

But no matter how I think about it, itโ€™s not a suit that suits me.

โ€œDonโ€™t be so stubborn and come along. I want to introduce you to His Majesty as my protege.โ€

So thatโ€™s your true intention.

โ€œFineโ€ฆโ€

I sighed and agreed, then beckoned Miliaria and asked her to take care of things afterwards.

We canโ€™t all go in a group.

The four girls and Salieri will stay at General Kytesโ€™ mansion.

And Miliaria will be the stand-in while Iโ€™m gone.

Sheโ€™s not good under pressure, but sheโ€™s thoughtful and has a broad perspective.

โ€œIf by any chance, the general and I donโ€™t return by nightfall, youโ€™ll have to escape from the royal capital.โ€

โ€œWhy? Is there such a danger?โ€

โ€œNo. I think the possibility is close to zero, but preparing for the worst is the basic of strategy.โ€

I pat her brown head.

At present, the most important thing to avoid is a breakdown in communication.

If the negotiations fail and the general and I are captured, we have to inform Demon King Ingral.

And the only ones who can do that are them.

So this is a plan assuming the worst case scenario.

Itโ€™s the same idea as disaster prevention.

If youโ€™re prepared and nothing happens, itโ€™s a laughing matter, but if something happens when youโ€™re not prepared, you wonโ€™t have the luxury of laughing.

At my explanation, not only Miliaria, but also Asuka, Meisha, Meg, and Salieri nodded.

But Salieri, donโ€™t you know this much without me teaching you?

Youโ€™re a member of a special unit.

Why are you on the same page as me?

Do you think youโ€™re my daughter too?

And the audience with His Majesty the King was arranged immediately.

General Kytes is truly a pillar of the nation.

He has free pass all the way from the main gate of the royal castle. This guy.

The guards donโ€™t even question him, they just salute and see him off.

And when the butler who came to greet us said, โ€œMay I have your permission for a direct performance,โ€ we were led into the conference room in less than half an hour.

The only ones at the table are His Majesty King Morrison of Lintrite, His Excellency Gunzol, the Minister of State, and His Excellency Triani, the Chief Steward.

In other words, the only people above General Kytes are these people.

โ€œYour Majesty, rejoice. My strategy has borne fruit.โ€

After introducing me, the general started off like that.

The king looks a bit taken aback.

I guess he didnโ€™t understand what he was saying.

Thatโ€™s a clever negotiation tactic.

First, he makes a strong impression that itโ€™s good news, taking the initiative. General Kytes is good at exploiting human psychology.

Heโ€™s sharp, unlike what youโ€™d expect from a warrior.

He uses the concessions from Demon King Ingral as a starting point for the negotiation.

Listening from the side, it doesnโ€™t seem like an equal peace. Rather, it feels like the Lintrite Kingdom is the victor.

Even an amateur like me in politics can understand the usefulness of this proposal, so thereโ€™s no way the king and the minister of state canโ€™t.

Thereโ€™s no way they canโ€™t, but the words that came out of King Morrisonโ€™s mouth were outside of my expectations.

โ€œYou traitor! Youโ€™ve been dealing with the Demon King!โ€

Oh no.

I donโ€™t understand.

Insulting a person who has managed to secure a favorable peace agreement from an opponent who cannot be defeated in battle?

Is this king okay in the head?

โ€œPeace before battle! I canโ€™t believe these are the words of General Kytes, known for his bravery! Did you receive a bribe from the Demon King!!โ€

The minister of state is pounding on the table and shouting.

The door is violently thrown open, and soldiers pour in, surrounding me and the general.

Tenfold, twentyfold.

Whatโ€™s this?

Whatโ€™s the situation?

I hate to admit it, but are there only incompetents in the upper ranks of the Lintrite Kingdom?

As our hands are tied, General Kytes and I look at each other.

In each otherโ€™s eyes, our faces are filled with large question marks.
