Chapter 86 – Romont’s Apology

「I’m very sorry!」

Romont apologized and lowered his head deeply.

The location is Romont’s mansion. The blown-up adventurers had fainted so they let them rest in a room in the mansion.

Given that situation, Romont has been apologizing to us.

Finkle, his own son, is watching Romont and me with an amazed face.

Though I don’t know why he’s watching us, Romont’s case can’t be helped.

After all, he will be treated as a foolish parent who blindly trusted all the words of his three sons.

Well, that is something normal if he is a commoner but what he did was the worst response of a statesman.

Normally, he should judge my mythical war record from tracing where the information came from.

Then, he will judge the information taken by his three sons. This father believes all the information of his sons to the point that he thought that I tricked Finkle.

But as a result, he now owes a great debt from the small country.

It is a great failure.

「I never thought that I’d understudy the apostle of god and his braves…!」

Romont has been like this for a long time, but the longer it gets, the sharper Finkle’s eyes are.

「Even though I reported it…」

When Finkle mutters so, Romont’s body stiffens and throws cold sweat.

No, Finkle’s report might have been tampered by his brothers.

I spoke with Finkle, who has an angry heart, with a wry smile.

「Well, don’t say that. From now on, Romont will atone by recovering all the slaves from Galland Empire. And, after that, all the slaves, besides the crime slaves, will be taken to my country after he settled it with Galland Empire.」

When I told them so, Romont looked at me with a pale face.

Finkle pressed his hand to his forehead looking at that appearance of his father.

「…Even if the ruin of Maeas has been avoided, it seems that our royal family is now ruined.」

When Finkle murmur so, Romont panicked and opened his mouth to me.

「Th-thank you for your kindness… but all the slaves are impossible! There is also the relationship with Galland Empire but above all, the confidence for us as merchants will…!」

Romont desperately tried to negotiate for the survival of his royal family but he should have negotiated that earlier.

I sympathize with Romont halfway but I have to tell him those last words.

TN: Last word in this line means the last words from the line before it.

「What are you saying? Shouldn’t a man take responsibility for his actions? Finkle’s two elder brothers should be imprisoned and revoke their right to succeed the throne for information manipulation. And, you should also retire for making an erroneous final judgment.」

When I said that, Romont opened his eyes wide and opened and closed his mouth several times.

Looking at Romont who can’t speak, Finkle sighs and knits his eyebrows.

「Father, please give up. I’ll also revoke my right to succeed the throne. Please take action while thinking of Maeas survival first.」

Finkle consoled his father by saying so.

It is the right thing to say to a man who runs the country but it is not the right thing to say to a man who’s responsible for his royal family.

In any case, there will be no one to succeed their royal family.

Though they are citizens of this country, their royal family also has a history.

It’s a different kind of responsibility but it’s also a responsibility.

Above all, I assumed that the good taste will disappear.

「Finkle, you must succeed your royal family.」

When I said that, Finkle turned his gaze on here and knitted his eyebrows.

「…No, it is impossible for our royal family to recover. We must use all of our hands to collect back the slaves. That means losing credibility…」

「I know that. However, that’s not enough to ruin a royal family. This will be troublesome but, why don’t you make an original business?」

When I interrupted the words of Finkle and said so, Finkle closed his mouth and carefully chose the words to asked me.

「… What do you mean? What kind of business is dragon knight-sama talking about? I would love to hear it from you.」

When Finkle said so, Romont also came here and faced me.

These two are really not so royal like.

When I made a wry smile unconsciously, I slowly opened my mouth.

「There are three businesses I’m thinking about. The fastest sky logistics and supplying black iron arms. The last one is the formation and operation of an alliance called International alliance that will give all countries their right to speak.」

When I said so, Finkle and Romont looked at me with a dumbfounded expression.

Of course, all of those will benefit my country.

For sky logistics, anyone can use flight magic if they have a magic item which enables them to use flight magic. For black iron arms, we can produce it in large quantities.

And the formation of the International alliance will make me able to control the world substantially.

TN: He said 牛耳る(gyuujiru) which means either to control, to lead, or to oversee. Given that it is Ren who said that, I think he only means to oversee but he has the power to do so, so I put control instead. Anyway,  I still can’t think how in hell does world domination… I mean, forming an international alliance became a business proposal.

All of this will greatly enrich our country and boost our global position.

What I need is personnel and that’s where the talk about Maeas giving my country large amount of slaves comes in.

Therefore, we should get a large amount of them.

To tell the truth, Romont’s reckless driving of his parental love has been very favorable for me.

From this world’s inhabitants point of view, what I’m doing might be strange.

If Finkle had guessed it, he must have come from earth too.

When I thought of such a thing, Finkle gave a nice face and nodded.

「Is that so? The logistics of goods has been regulated by Maeas prioritizing big businesses and connection…! No, no, no, that’s the reason why we stick to slavery…. In addition, an international alliance is epoch-making…. If we can work it out well enough, we can make a world without war…!」

Finkle was muttering such a thing like a soliloquy.


Are you from Earth?

    World without war? maniacal laughter

    1. xias1

      Look at it like that:
      There are majorly only 5 countries in that world (as fas as we know) and Ren’s newly founded nation.

      Also it seems like there aren’t that many different religions as everyone calls the “dragon knight” an “apostle of god”.

      So creating “world peace” in that world should be quite a bit easier than on Earth where 193 acknowlegded states and a few more
      unrecognized states with 5 major religions and probably hundereds or thousands or even more of minor religions / believes as well as religious extremist groups and who knows how many self-proclaimed religious sects like Scientology

        Umm, this is basically a Domination Victory via proxy. Ren-Ren’s pretty much locking down all the other countries and depriving them of any avenue of counterattack.

        By providing air logistics, you can show your own air superiority easily: you lead the world in aviation, so you basically control the skies before anyone can dream of it
        By providing the special iron, you’ve proven monopoly. Once the world accepts the rare metal, they soon realize the monopoly that Ren-Ren has of this wonder metal and basically now controls the economy
        By creating such an alliance, you can flex your massive military might with ease, and make everyone take caution in dealing with you. Any plans for attack would have to take them into account…and that is if they don’t find out about the aces up your sleeve.

        Feasome, fearsome.

    I’d use influence instead of control there. The softer option seems to suit his personality better.

    world “without” war eh, even tho they can’t have physical war they can still do political, economic, science, ideology, and religious war. all of those don’t need weapons at all.
    in the first place war is just a tool to get something, and usually its a political reason. so those ideals of no wars…. is kinda too much of a dream.
    even artificial wars are needed to move politics, science, economy and religions to a higher height with a faster rate. so its just like slowing down advances of the intellectual races. (btw wars is not only physical war but intellectual wars like cold war, cold war is the most efficient war to advance human scientific, ideology, and economic powers. cause it don’t waste resources and use all of those resources to advance each countries that is in that cold war like how US and USSR got really advanced because of the cold war. so basically they just need rivals)
    the only problem in that world is just their war is just a bit too primitive. cause they do a lot of prolonged wars. even tho prolonged wars bring no benefits to anyone and any country, but they still do it because of uselessly high pride and arrogance. So the MC here just need to change how the world face things.

    1. Lowe

      but well if he just want to conquer it or showing off his power he is already doing the right thing tho. those 3 terms are is a good way to dominate others without much conflicts. unless they are more foolish than i thought.

    He’s going to make The United Nations all over again. Jonathan Irons won’t be pleased. (for those who don’t know him. He is the villain of Call of Duty Advanced Warfare)
