Saving 80,000 Gold in an Another World for Retirement - Chapter 306
The End Of The Empire
“…So how was the empire?” (Mitsuha)
Yeah, I have to confirm that.
“Ah, I hear that the emperor has already decided to abdicate, but the battle for his successor is so fierce that he is not in a position to make any decisions about the future.
The pledge and the 2,300 gold coins were their first priority to consider, and since 2,300 gold coins were a small amount of money for the country and the royal family, it wasn’t even the subject of debate.
However, regarding the successor, other powers, and interests…
I mean, Mitsuha, you did that on purpose, didn’t you? To sour the relationship of the successors…” (King)
“Of course!” (Mitsuha)
I made a clear statement.
And the king laughed wryly.
“… Mitsuha, would you like to be a wife?” (King)
“What, so sudden? My king, you already have a wife! Besides, if I marry the king, I’ll be Sabine-chan’s mother-in-law! To begin with, how many years apart are we?…” (Mitsuha)
What a ridiculous thing for a king to say…
“You idiot! By ‘wife’ I mean my ‘son’s wife’, not mine!” (King)
Areya? Is that so?
Is it a translation error? Or is it the same in Japanese?
“…Figures… No, I’m kinda expecting that…” (King)
Even so, the king looked a little disappointed.
No, I am only 19 years old. The age of marriage may be low here, but in Japan, the average age of marriage for women starts at 29. That’s still 10 years away!
Besides, I should look to be about 12-13 years old here.
Well, as an aristocrat, they don’t care if it’s just an engagement……
But marriage would still be early.
…No, I’m not going to get engaged to the prince either.
The king was talking about that sparkling prince, not the healing prince, Ruhen-kun, but the first prince who seems to have a harsh personality, the crown prince…….
Spare me from that.
No, certainly, maybe it’s better for the country if the king has a hard personality, but I wouldn’t want him to be my husband.
In the first place, as the queen, I don’t want to be a panda and hostess for a freak show.
I’m 19 years old, so if I married a boy that young, I’d be a criminal!
“The messenger, who was met with various complaints, sarcasm, and criticism, then returned after saying, ‘If you have any complaints about the divine messenger, please contact the goddess directly through the temple in your country, not with our country’…….” (King)
The fact that the messenger said it means they don’t want to ‘return’, but that wasn’t told to him in advance by the king, it was rather an ad-lib by the messenger.
……Not bad, Messenger-san!
Anyway, let’s end it here. Well, unless they started something stupid from their side.
…But, I don’t think they’ll do it again.
Don’t expect me to be lenient every time, no matter how many times you try something stupid.
In fact, I made a merciless attack on the invading troops, overwhelmingly… It’s not like we care about anyone dying, or anything.
No matter how many surprise attacks and assassinations you carry out in defiance of treaties, your opponent was a dumb sycophant who can destroy an invasion force and kill as few soldiers as possible.
…Well, such a thing has zero deterrent effect, of course, they will attack again no matter how many times they fail.
No matter how much they lost, there were almost no human casualties and their number of soldiers has not decreased much.
That means they can repeat the process as many times as they want until they win, and if they win at least once, they’ll keep going as many times as they want……
Well, the reason why they surrendered so easily this time was probably that they thought that until now, even though they lost the war, only the soldiers and field commanders on the front lines would die and that the upper nobility and royalty who didn’t go to the battlefield would be absolutely safe, but suddenly “death” fell equally on everyone from above them, regardless of rank or status.
Those who messed with the Yamano family, from the top to the bottom, would receive “death and destruction” evenly and impartially.
They must have thought that to protect their people.
Even if the Yamano family’s reputation was damaged or feared……
Ah! I forgot something.
“Your Majesty, I have caught the person who attacked us. Can I hand him over to you and let him be judged according to the laws of this country? The crime scene is the capital of this country, and the people who were attacked are citizens of this country……” (Mitsuha)
“Ah, of course, it’s okay. Well, since it was an attempted assassination against an aristocrat, the angel, the hero of this country, Hime Miko-sama, and the 9-year-old girl. The criminal ended up seriously injuring the 9-year-old girl.
……She wouldn’t have been saved if not for the medical technology of Mitsuha’s home country, right?” (King)
I nodded to the King’s words.
Well, there was that time with Alexis-sama. He understands that much …
“There’s no such thing as a false accusation or disputed facts, so there won’t even be a need for a trial. We will just announce the sentence and be done with it. No matter how much the sentence is reduced, it will never be less than a beheading.” (King)
……Well, it’s no surprise.
I told him that I would ‘send him back to the ruins of the empire’ as a psychological attack, but of course, I am not stupid enough to let such a thug go scot-free, especially those who would come to assassinate us again, those who have a grudge and murderous intent, and those who came and try to kill us once.
……Yeah, “That’s a lie!”.
Besides, in the first place, he’s an assassin, who was sent by the enemy, failed in his mission, was captured, and supposedly spilled everything. There was no way such a person could return to his homeland.
They’d think he betrayed them and already killed his whole family.
…As an example to keep the next traitor out.
Then the probability that they will try to kill me again was quite high.
And even if they fail and die, they will be “martyrs to the mission,” which was much better than “traitors and was released unharmed, probably even with a hefty reward”. Which would be the end of their family as collateral…
Well, anyway, the crime committed must be judged by the local law and it must be atoned for.
As expected, it cannot be a private lynching.
Let’s leave it to the judicial institutions of this country, where the crime was committed.
“…So, when will Sabine return?” (King)
