How to Live as a Half-Dragon chapter 107
107. Great Competition (2)
Xian honestly thinks so.
Sara said she had no will to take over as the family head of Alteon.
She was a person who felt more rewarding living as a man’s woman than as the head of a great aristocrat.
However, Xian had intended to lie here today.
‘It doesn’t matter what I knew before that.’
It wasn’t that that mattered.
The key was that only Sarah could decide that.
Sian took a deep breath and opened his mouth.
“This is Cyan Alteon.”
Xian said while showing the Belial he had received just yesterday.
“Although I am a newbie who passed the ordeal in the northern forest yesterday, I dare to think I know the part about my mother quite well.”
“… … .”
The crowd was quiet.
Seeing Belial’s brilliance, he was surprised that he had passed the ordeal at that age, but he was quiet anyway.
Xian looked at Lugrant.
Not knowing what to say…
“My mother, who gave birth to me and raised me, missed Alteon without missing a moment.”
Lugrant’s expression, which was full of arrogance and trust, felt that something went wrong and slightly distorted.
“Because I was young, I acted foolishly even though I knew my mother was thinking of Alteon. Let’s wait a little longer for Father.”
Rugrant hit the desk and got up.
“I’ll just listen until there. Get that kid out.”
A few of his retainers approached with vigor.
Xian used the principle of non-spirituality to get them out of the way and said.
“My mother just enticed my father to go. Just one more chance… .”
“What are you doing, hurry up and kick me out!”
Like the vassals of the samurai family, the warriors who were all in one go rushed to catch the draft.
However, even if they were, they could not be opponents of Xian, who had already reached the ranks of intermediate slayers.
They were only chasing after the illusion of Xian’s non-spirituality, and no one even stopped them.
Lugrant was greatly surprised to see that.
‘In a gap like that… !’
Seven years later, he arrived in Alteon not too long ago.
Of course, Rugrant judged that Xian was barely at the level of a low-level slayer.
But now I didn’t see it.
It was the time when Lugrant was about to step forward before the situation escalated.
Before that, there was a single sword that pierced Xian precisely.
Xian hastily drew his sword and blocked it.
Seeing the opponent’s face, Xi’an’s eyes shook for a moment, but he soon regained his composure.
“What are you doing? It’s been a while? I didn’t want to fight swords like this with you.”
“It’s the same for me, but… Are you crazy? What are you trying to do?”
It’s a look of concern.
It was because there were a few vassals who fell after being beaten once or twice by Xian.
“I don’t know man. I couldn’t help it either.”
“Why are you being so selfish? Couldn’t you just leave quietly without causing a commotion?”
Anyway, while Stain stopped Xian’s feet, people gathered around Xian.
Non-spirituality is a technique that can be used only when there is space.
It was a time when Xian was troubled inside.
A low voice echoed through the venue.
The chairman had become quite noisy before he knew it, but mysteriously, his voice was enough to stop everyone.
The owner of the voice was Creston, who was sitting right in front of Lugrant.
“May I say something?”
“I will dismiss it, Count.”
There is one reason why Lugrant insisted on obtaining the consent of the aristocrats who supported Sarah without fail, even though he was the decision maker of Alteon’s power.
It was because they were essential to Alteon.
Although there is legitimacy and necessity in Lugrant’s decision, there is no rationality.
If you think about the true future of Alteon, you can’t be happy with the designation of the successor of the grand duke.
Of course, it was not possible to drive all those who agreed to the designation of the successor as corrupt forces, but at least there were many in favor of those who could compromise on power and wealth.
However, the opponents are different from them.
They were loyalists who were willing to give their lives for Alteon.
That’s why Lugrant was cumbersome to prepare today’s place.
The same was true of those who could be called the three pillars of Alteon.
The same goes for Highgreaves, Inglass, and Craston, who now demands a say.
Since I sincerely thought of Alteon, I couldn’t tolerate his remarks just now.
“It’s a story you won’t regret hearing.”
“… I still won’t listen Someone take the count outside for a while.”
As soon as Lugrand started to rain, Earl Craston knelt down.
“If it is false, I will inform you without permission, even though I know it is disloyalty. I’m risking my life, so please don’t doubt Craston’s loyalty.”
When the high-ranking aristocrat, the Count, knelt down, those who approached hesitated as they noticed Lugrant.
Was it really possible to pull it out?
At the moment people hesitated, a shocking voice came out of Creston’s mouth.
“Actually, the duke’s eldest daughter, Sarah, is here.”
The chairman was agitated.
Even Lugrand was greatly surprised.
Because I couldn’t even hear it myself.
No, thinking about it, I heard it.
Two days ago, I received a message that there was a woman who rode in the carriage with me…
However, even so, Lugrant’s thoughts did not change.
It was based on the judgment that there was nothing that could change the game now.
But that was a mistake.
Rugrant glanced at the chairman and thought.
‘The vassals are quite agitated.’
Those who supported Sarah from the beginning only showed a bright color, but those who supported the Archduke were quite agitated.
It was a natural reaction for those who reluctantly supported the Grand Duke.
Rugland tried to pretend to be calm.
“So, where is Sara now?”
He thought that everything was not over yet, but that was the calculation until just before Sarah, who had been waiting outside the venue, hiding her energy, showed up.
Entering the venue, Sarah took off her hooded cape.
The fine purple hair said.
That she is Sara with the blood of Alteon.
“Father, Sara, the unfilial child, greets you after a long trip.”
* * *
In fact, Xian was the biggest surprise at the venue.
I tried to carry through with my will even though I might have suffered a big upset, but this was because it was a huge unexpected twist.
‘I’m really a mother… .’
It was definitely not who was in disguise.
In addition to his voice, he even smiled kindly at himself when his eyes met.
Soon after, Rugland said to Sarah, the mother who knelt in front of her grandfather.
“Without shame, why did you come here?”
“When you left everything and left 17 years ago, didn’t you have a resolution not to come back on your own?!”
Uncharacteristically, Sarah raised her voice at the words of Lugrant.
“I made a promise. I thought living in hiding as if a rat died was the way for Alteon. But on second thought, I realized that it was not for Alteon.”
“If you realized that now, you are stupid, so it is nothing to get involved in.
Raising her head, Sara said.
It was only natural that he would not have come to us in the first place if he had been willing to give up even after seeing Rugland’s stubborn will.
“Did you ask for condensed milk? I want to become the head of Alteon.”
“I said I wouldn’t listen.”
“I will never disappoint you again.”
“… … .”
However, even though it was Lugrant who had been trying to pull out any sign of distorting the plan just a moment ago, for some reason he didn’t do that now.
Surprisingly, it was because Sarah’s insignificant words in front of her were so attractive.
“From now on, I will only use my life for Alteon.”
“You are the one who has already disappointed me. On what grounds do I believe in you?”
The grand duke, no, Kirchion, who had suddenly become the first duke, rose from his seat.
“What are you doing? Without pulling all three out?”
“Didn’t you hear me say be quiet! Aren’t you thinking right now!!”
Confucius 1’s expression crumpled as if he had chewed sh*t.
It was Sarah who had lived a different life from Alteon for 17 years.
It was anger that came from a sense of betrayal that no matter how talented he was, he couldn’t be like this to himself who worked so hard to become the successor of Alteon.
he said, sighing.
“now… Are you saying you believe that?”
“Someone, give Kirchion some fresh air.”
Instead of the three of them, Kirsion, who was put on the verge of being kicked out, pushed the approaching people away and left the venue on her own feet.
Seeing this, Xian clicked his tongue.
‘Tsk tsk tempered hair… .’
Looking at the daughter he cherished more than anyone else, Lugrand said in a voice mixed with love and hatred.
“It is absurd to leave the position of successor right away. You know why.”
Rugrant, who had risen from his seat because of Xian’s commotion, regained his composure and sat down.
“But give me a chance. Try to persuade me here.”
* * *
Rugrant said to the vassals in the left.
“Everyone please return to your seats.”
As soon as the vassals returned to their seats and sat down, Xian also sat down.
“From now on, I will correct the agenda of the conference agreement. It’s not about the internal affairs of 1st Prince Kirchion as the next head of household, but I’ll listen to your opinion on whether 1st Princess Sarah Alteon is a good candidate for head of the family.”
When asked in the name of Alteon, the Viscount, who was the first to show off his support for Prince 1, stood up.
It was a top board that could not be found the composure that had already been shown in the previous two times.
“Patriarch, the successor position of Alteon has been vacant for 17 years. How confused were you when you even competed with the 2nd Confucius a few years ago, but you’re competing again?”
Uland rose from his seat.
Rugrant said to him who asked for the right to speak.
He said it while looking at Uland, but it was a one-liner to everyone.
“Speak freely, and from now on I will permit you to discuss without judgment.”
Uland said at Rugland’s words.
“Are you saying that competition causes chaos, Viscount?”
“Yes, are you saying no?”
“No, I agree with some of them.”
“Then why are you caving in? Uland.”
“Because competition brings not only chaos. When competition ends, better results come together. Just as the 1st Conqueror, who was better than the 2nd Conqueror, was chosen as the final candidate earlier, this competition will be like that too.”
If it was Xi’an, I would have easily become speechless at that one word, but of course it wasn’t Viscount.
“no! Whether or not Princess Sara is qualified to be the head of the household is also a serious question.”
“… … .”
“The one who caused confusion in Alteon for 17 years is none other than Princess Sara. Do you think it makes sense to be a candidate again?”
At the words of the viscount, other vassals assisted. It was because there were still more supporters on the side of Confucius 1.
Uland said calmly.
“That’s definitely a problem, I think so too, and no one thinks it’s not a problem, but if you think it’s not a problem, talking about Princess Sara’s candidacy is meaningless in the first place.”
“What do you mean?”
“In the first place, there’s no room for debate, so it’s right to be the next head of household.”
The viscount’s expression twisted.
It was because Uland’s claim I just said didn’t sound completely absurd.
Everyone knows that Prince 1 Kirchion worked hard, but Princess Sarah’s talent surpasses it.
“Sophistry. Even if you have excellent qualities, isn’t there a law that says that something that happened once won’t happen twice? If it really happens after the family circumference is inherited, then there is no turning back.”
“So, to put it simply, can those who oppose it think that there is no reason for objection other than one mistake in the past?”
The number of heads, which had unilaterally leaned towards the first Gongja, has changed amicably to Sara by about a third.
It was a time when logical rebuttals came and went.
Crashton, a once-kneeling sinner, undid it and stood up.
“We are discussing whether Princess Sara is suitable for the succession, but I have something to tell you, although it is not a very suitable argument.”
“Should I do it now?”
When the supporters of Confucius 1 asked such a question, Craston nodded.
“It is absolutely necessary. If Princess Sarah becomes the ruler of Alteon, it is a blessing that will come to Alteon as well.”
The Viscount tried to stop it, thinking that there was nothing good about it, but someone else took the opportunity without noticing.
“What is it?”
“It is Xian, no, the existence of Xian Alteon, the offspring of Princess Sarah.”
Lugrant has doubts.
The vassals show interest.
However, what surprised me the most was Xian, who quietly watched the fight.
I don’t know what else this is.
