The NTR Hero Knelt Down to the Demon King chapter 55
55 – quick stop loss
Two groups of people sitting facing each other, openly showing signs of discomfort.
At this moment, their faces clearly showed the feeling that they did not like the current situation, but nonetheless, no one openly expressed these feelings.
Representative of the Falcon Empire, Achilles Decliment,
Scipio Afnus, representative of the elven kingdom.
At this moment, the two people and their subordinates, who were sitting here as representatives of each country, maintained a heavy silence for a while in this awkward yet chilly atmosphere.
‘I could definitely give those arrogant elves a true education on this occasion… ‘
‘To think that we noble elves who follow God’s will have to bow down to such a human… ‘
Just a few days ago, the two were sharpening their knives with the intention of tearing off the other person’s head.
However, at this point, they were in a position where they had no choice but to have a conversation while holding the sharpened knife for a while.
The Tribal Alliance faced a crushing defeat unprecedented in history, with its main force of 40,000 destroyed and more than 70% of the occupied territory blown away in an instant.
The damage they suffered in just a few weeks was too devastating, even before preparations were made to repair the damage in Rob.
Due to this war, they lost all the big territories such as Galatia, Timothy, Ephesus, and Bilibo, starting from Antioch, and even the size of the troops was terribly reduced.
This could be said to be the worst crisis in the worst situation, in which the achievements of the war that had been going on for the past few years were wiped out in an instant.
In this regard, the Falcon Empire and the Elven Church, which had been divided into two, had no choice but to resume the conversation in a hurry.
Yes, but as they had already pointed their blades at each other, there was no longer any ties of the past between them.
There is simply an ‘enemy’ that negotiates according to the situation.
In a situation where the fight continues for a while,
The first to speak was the elven kingdom, which was at a disadvantage geographically and in terms of national power.
“Then, let’s start talking. Since we’ve come this far, isn’t it the correct answer to solve the problem quickly?”
“…that’s right. If that’s the case, you’ll know how things are going anyway. Let’s cut it short and start talking about the main point.”
Achilles responds in a calm voice to Scipio’s words,
At this moment, they knew very well that even if they had to compete again later, they had to put out the most urgent fire first.
Due to the defeat the other day, even its existence is in jeopardy.
Although not all occupied positions were lost, the defeat was so severe that it was almost impossible for them to hold the front on their own any longer.
And in this situation,
In fact, the Falcon Empire and the Elven Church, which could be said to be the biggest investors in this war, had to make a quick decision to prevent further damage.
Will the home country provide massive support to rectify the situation and continue the war?
Otherwise, the decision to give up the achievements achieved so far and urge a retreat to save even the remaining troops and resources.
‘If it were a general case, the answer would of course be the former… It is a very painful loss to lose the landing base that was acquired through countless sacrifices.’
‘If it was usual, the Holy Father would have chosen to continue the war. The price of blood we elves have paid so far is too high.’
From the point of view of warfare, the value of the landing base is very high from a strategic point of view, so it was originally right to provide at least a level of support to protect the occupied area, even if it was not necessary to resume a large-scale invasion.
However, at this moment, the two owners, the Emperor and the Pope, had already decided on an answer.
“I agree. Let’s launch the ship immediately and return the troops in the demon king’s territory.”
Declaration of the representatives of the two countries to give up all the achievements made over the past years.
At first glance, this could be called a foolish choice.
The damage caused by one failure was great, but it was foolish to turn everything into nothing.
At this moment they knew.
What is urgent right now is not the Demon Kingdom, which has been devastated as it will be devastated by years of war and has to focus on internal affairs for a while.
The fact that at this moment is the ‘enemy’ in front of his eyes.
‘Anyway, the country that suffered the most from the war so far is the Demon Kingdom. They can’t afford to decorate something outside their territory for a while.’
‘As a result of forming a tribal union and beating them up, the Demon Kingdom is no longer as strong as before. Besides, they can’t be a threat to us as long as we’ve made them into an actual axis of evil.’
In the first place, the biggest reason they drove the Demon Kingdom and the demons into the forces of evil and formed a tribal alliance was to divert dissatisfaction from their own country to the outside world.
In order to rectify the people’s sentiments, which were savage due to a series of famines, diseases, and corruption of nobles, they declared a so-called holy war, which has been continued until now.
However, in the current situation where the domestic situation has been stabilized in recent years and the national power has been put back on the right track, the need for it is relatively low.
In a situation where there was no longer any need to continue the war from a political standpoint, even losses occurred.
In this situation,
What they needed was a quick stop loss, not a clumsy water ride.
Now, in front of them, rather than the Demon Kingdom, which was so weak that it could not be a danger, a larger, more powerful and real danger was situated.
‘If we continue the war here and try to send reinforcements, there’s no way these elves wouldn’t take advantage of this opportunity… ‘
‘Right now, in front of us is the real enemy called the Falcon Empire, not the illusion of the Demon Kingdom. The moment they say they’re sending reinforcements and withdraw their troops, they’ll definitely launch a massive offensive.’
Two forces that have already decided to draw their swords against each other.
In particular, in the case of the Emperor of the Falcon Empire, it was a situation in which he decided to take this opportunity to completely erase the long-time rival of the Elven Church.
In a situation where a large-scale war was right in front of their eyes, there was no reason to bear the loss by clinging to useless materials such as tribal unions anymore.
“Then, since we have already obtained permission from the Nation of Darkness and the Nation of Guardians, let’s proceed immediately.”
“I agree. Let’s return the soldiers who have suffered so far to the arms of their families as soon as possible.”
With that in mind, aiming the blade at the opponent,
Achilles and Scipio shook hands with a smile on their lips.
Thinking that if the opportunity arises, he will definitely slit this child’s head himself…
After a few days of clearing things up in Antioch.
The 30,000 demon army stationed there had to make a choice.
“Will you use this opportunity to wipe out the remnants of the enemy as well?”
“I agree. The morale of our allies is sky-high, while our enemies are dwindling as they should. I think it is right to use this momentum to wipe out every enemy in this country.”
Samson and his men insist on continuing the battle with a resolute voice.
On the other hand, in this regard, Elias and Beelzebeauty were adhering to the position that it was necessary to maintain a little prudence.
“Your Majesty, although we have won a great victory, our soldiers are still very tired from the reckless battle.”
“In addition, the enemies are now cornered and poisoned. If you forcefully attack at a time like this, you will be rather disappointed. Rather, I think it is right to withdraw for now in order to induce the enemy’s vigilance and give the allies a break.”
“Elias, what do you mean! War is the flow! You don’t know how things will go if you don’t finish the job with this momentum!”
“Don’t you know that if you get swept away by the current, you might end up falling into the bottom of the waterfall?”
Somehow, Samson and Elias are showing a scene similar to the one we saw before.
Regarding this, I’m starting to get a feeling that something I don’t really want will happen again next time…
“Warrior! What do you mean?”
Unfortunately, this ominous feeling did not escape my expectations.
“There must be something you want to say, so please say something.”
‘No.. I don’t have anything I want to say.’
“Aren’t you a warrior who made a revolutionary achievement in the past? There must be a good idea this time, so please share it.”
‘There’s nothing like that. Don’t turn the arrow like this.’
A situation where not only Samson but also Elias came forward and demanded an answer from me.
At the same time, the demon king also looked at me like that and started to notice that I should say something…
In this regard,
I sighed inwardly and couldn’t help but rack my brain to come up with the most accurate and appropriate answer.
Somehow, feeling a great burden on the fact that I became an existence that naturally decides the situation…
“Your Majesty, in my opinion…”
