The Prince Wants To Retire - Chapter 144
The Prince Wants To Retire chapter 144
54. Gate Wars! (2)
Seeing Kariel going to the battlefield once again in a state of affairs that would not be enough even if he was quiet, the ministers were saddened.
Why the hell are you saying this?
The ministers went crazy at Kariel’s words that he would jump directly into the battlefield this time in a situation where all the Masters who should have been left behind were sent away.
Kariel’s position in the current empire was absolute.
There are younger brothers who will ascend to the throne, but the chaos that would arise when Kariel was lost could never be put to rest on their own.
“Your Majesty, do you really want to go?”
“Can’t we just send the fire priests?”
At the persuasion of the officials, Kariel shook her head.
“I have to go to deal with the beings of hell.”
Kariel said with a determined expression, but the ministers did not bend their opinions as if this time it would not work.
It was not the West Continent, but the East Continent.
If you were quietly stuck in the giant’s fortress, you would think about it.
But Kariel says she will directly check Roman.
Of course, from the position of the ministers, they have no choice but to shout against the union.
“We have to see the final decision before the demon king fully awakens.”
“Haona… … .”
Kariel shook her head at the opposition of the ministers.
In fact, he didn’t even want to do this. But the situation back then was too dangerous.
Through his past life experience, he was well aware of how ruthless the demon king was, so he had to stop it.
If Glenn had become a grand master, he might not have gone this far.
But Glenn was still weak.
I had to buy time until I had the absolute power of my previous life.
‘If I can’t stop the demon king’s summoning, I’ll have to give Glenn some time to grow.’
If the demon king had already been summoned, the power of the demons had to be weakened, and as a bonus, the demon king had to be fatally wounded.
To do so, it was necessary to focus all the power of the empire on the demons.
It was for this very reason that Kariel was going to the East Continent.
“We have to send troops to keep Roman in check.”
“Haona… … .”
“If the Empire had even one Grand Master, I wouldn’t have made this decision.”
At Kariel’s words, the ministers’ mouths were tightly shut.
“A being who might be stronger than the Grand Master is coming over, but are you putting your hands on it for safety? Is that really your wish?”
In response to Kariel’s question, the minister had no choice but to remain silent this time.
“Trust me. I will definitely come back alive.”
At Kariel’s words, the ministers raised their heads and looked at their emperor.
Always trying to keep what he said, Ignite’s supreme kept most of his promises and left behind a great achievement of unification of the western continent.
“I will burn Roman and come back, believe me. and… … The opposite is to listen only until today. I’ve been very busy.”
Having said that, Kariel left the opposing ministers behind and went outside.
The ministers sighed as they saw Kariel’s back as she proudly left Daejeon.
“If you’re that tough… … .”
“It will be difficult to stop.”
At the words of the Minister of Finance, the chancellor sighed.
“Ha, you have to stop it. The current empire can barely survive because of Your Majesty.”
It has not been long since they occupied the Holy Kingdom and the Southern Kingdoms.
In addition, the reason Ignit was maintained without such great confusion in a situation where demons and even the beings of Hell appeared was because of the existence of Kariel.
Without his leadership, it was questionable whether the center would be properly controlled.
“I still have to. Your Majesty doesn’t want it.”
The ministers bowed their heads silently at the words of the Prime Minister.
The emperor who always gives them difficult tasks.
He was an evil emperor who made him work overtime every day and only gave him a mountain pile of work, but he was a strange existence that he longs for without it.
“Move. If your Majesty desires it so desperately, it would make sense for you to follow it.”
Eventually, the ministers who were on their knees at the words of the Prime Minister rose one by one and returned to their seats.
After all the ministers returned to their seats, the prime minister, who sighed briefly, went to the emperor’s palace quietly.
* * *
At Kariel’s words, the Prime Minister sighed briefly.
“Your Majesty, please let go of your convictions now.”
The prime minister, who is rapidly aging day by day, pleaded with Kariel with a gloomy and exhausted look.
However, Kariel firmly shook her head.
“You said you would let Luther grow up.”
The genius from his previous life was growing steadily at the current academy.
That’s why Kariel had no intention of letting go of the chancellor until he graduated and officially entered the bureaucracy.
It was because there was no person in the current empire who had as much experience as the Prime Minister and could hold the center.
“… … Waiting for him to grow, I will die first.”
“I give orders to the priests to take care of it more diligently.”
“… … .”
It was a pity that the prime minister, who had been working until night as an old man, had the priests continuously manage it and sent precious medicinal herbs every month.
However, seeing her haggard face, it seemed that even that was not enough.
“Then call me earlier.”
“It’s Luther. It’s an emergency system, so even if you’re not in the graduating class, you can call in and use it.”
At Kariel’s words, the prime minister’s expression darkened.
“Aren’t you still young? It will take a little more experience.”
“Call and try it, or send it back.”

Jaesang tilted his head at Kariel’s suggestion.
“Your Majesty trusts the young man.”
At the words of the Prime Minister, Kariel smiled.
The prime minister was convinced by seeing it, but he had no choice but to tilt his head.
When Kariel first ordered Luther to take good care of him, the Prime Minister could feel that Kariel was looking at Luther as the next Prime Minister.
It would have been expected by anyone if he had been ordered to work at the Ministry of Finance upon graduation and to grow it himself.
The problem is that he is still young.
“You wonder why I trust the young man?”
“… … Yes.”
“They are of the same kind as me.”
At Kariel’s words, the chancellor put on an expression that made no sense.
Although he was the best of himself, Kariel was a monster in his eyes. Kind of like that?
“You will do well. So trust me.”
“… … All right.”
The chancellor still looked hard to believe, but now I had no choice but to ask him to trust me.
If Luther, who is several times more competent than himself, who he sees as a monster, starts to take his place, he will build a much more stable system than now.
The young geniuses who had already gathered around Luther and his younger brothers were already showing results.
The ideas they came up with at the academy were innovative enough that there were several that could be used right away.
“You will do well.”
The younger brothers who are called geniuses of misfortune in the past.
And a rare genius named Luther who made it possible for the empire to last until his death.
Numerous geniuses who disappeared in war in their previous lives.
If they were there, the empire would be able to develop faster even without confidence.
There was already some system in place around a genius named Kurius Turing and Baker, who was already a traitor.
Dr. Baker in Inorganic Sciences.
Kurius, god of alchemy and chemistry.
Turing, the father of engineering.
They came from traitors and had barely been hired in Salem, but now they are in the capital’s core business and are central to their respective fields.
The other was the same.
Kariel’s bodyguards were active in each field.
Arsuna, who also serves as the central mage.
Toto is establishing a system for the basic movement of the empire and basic training methods for soldiers.
Iris laid the foundations for close combat and martial arts to train rangers and special forces.
Brion studies the weaknesses of monsters and demons and lays the foundation for surgery.
At the same time, the SS was also in the process of training its own talents for expansion.
The geniuses in each field selected by Kariel have already laid the foundation, so he will not be shaken if he leaves the capital for a while.
Because he had finished the calculations so far, Kariel was able to make up his mind to leave for the East.

a few days later.
Seeing the two brothers who had come to the emperor’s palace, Kariel smiled.
“Please take good care of the capital.”
At Kariel’s words, the brothers sighed.
Recalling the past when Kariel had emptied the capital, she trembled.
“It won’t be as hard as it was then.”
Kariel told her not to worry, but her younger siblings didn’t believe it. It is because they have already learned through experience that they cannot fill Kariel’s vacancy with their own strength.
“Please comfort Miriel and go.”
“Yes. I am depressed that I am going to a dangerous place again.”
“… … okay?”
Kariel’s expression darkened at the words of her younger siblings.
“I’m blaming myself for not being helpful.”
At Seriel’s words, Luffiel, who was next to him, sighed.
It was because they tried to soothe Miriel, but this time the mood wasn’t relieved easily.
“I want to help… … .”
“no way… … Brother, you’re not trying to pamper Miriel already, are you?”
“How can you not have that much conscience… … .”
When the two younger siblings looked at Kariel with a tired expression, he looked at those younger siblings and said,
“Wouldn’t it be better to work than be depressed?”
Saying that, Kariel rubbed her chin, thinking that it would be okay.
“The palace was still messy.”
Maybe because they weren’t married yet, the maid-in-waiting and the maid-servant divided their powers to manage the palace, and the Minister of Home Affairs was helping, but the reporting system was messy, so the budget was often Jung-gu Heating.
Kariel intended to entrust the work to Miriel in the form of focusing only on this part.
As soon as the decision was made to entrust Miriel with the work of the inner palace, she shook her head, saying that she was fed up with the ministers and younger siblings, but instead, Miriel clenched her fists with a firm appearance and said,
“I could! It will help my brother!”
Everyone looked worried at Miriel’s words.
Everyone also thought about how helpful Miriel would be. But Kariel didn’t think that was necessarily the case.
It was because Miriel’s talent was comparable to Luther’s when he thought about his past life experiences.
I believed that since I had educated her from an early age, I would be able to pay for the meal.
“Your work is done.”
-Are you going to the eastern continent now?
At Surtur’s question, Kariel looked up at the night sky and said,
-Don’t be scared.
“I wasn’t scared.”
Kariel, who was taken aback by Surt’s words, coughed and said,
– I was scared.
Looking at Kariel, whose expression was clearly tense, Surt muttered that and smiled.
While bickering with Surt, Kariel spent her last days in the imperial palace.

and the next day,
The Duke of Walkshire and the Mabab Division, who were guarding the supply line, moved to the north at once and joined the main force.
Then Roman, who was aiming for an opening, rushed to the supply ship all at once.
As a huge number of the Maws of Hell flocked to them, they had a hard time defending the supply ship, even though there were two masters, Archelio and Tharion.

Just then, a sudden news flew to Tarion.
“It seems that the supply lines in the southern area have been stabilized.”
“Have the fire priests arrived?”
“Yes. But it is not because of them that they are stable.”
Tharion tilted his head at the report of the shadow.
“It is said that His Majesty personally participated in the war.”
Tarion, who heard the words of the shadow, vomited his flagship in astonishment.
