The Prince Wants To Retire chapter 151
57. I don’t know about war, let’s try fishing (2)
The moment the pattern on the forehead glowed, the red wave spread and absorbed the flames burning throughout the capital.
At the same time, the power of the explosion that shook the ground and exploded throughout the capital also lost its power as the red wave spread.
Eshtar’s last move to destroy the entire capital and inflict damage.
That had become useless to Kariel’s overwhelming power.
“What is this… … .”
As the red waves spread, the power of the explosions that had been exploding one after another disappeared without a trace.
Seeing that, Ashtar stared blankly at Kariel.
“Is this… … .”
Eshtar, who muttered blankly, looked at Kariel, who showed an overwhelming majesty that seemed to come out of a myth.
He seemed to understand why he was revered as a saint in the Western Continent and received overwhelming support.

Just because you’re good at politics?
How do you lead the country?
Surely there will be something like that.
However, if they showed such overwhelming majesty based on it, they had no choice but to think that they were the saviors who came to save them.
In Eshtar’s heart, which had been filled with loyalty to Roman, a piece of regret began to sprout.
If only he could have a master like that.
If only I could work for humanity.
Eshtar smiled bitterly at such regret, but he did not regret it.
It was because his own emperor also had a cause for humanity.
‘I have to do a little more damage for him.’
The moment I thought so, the trap that Ashtar had hidden until the end was activated.
“Is this the last move you hid?”
Kariel, floating in the air wrapped in red light, looked down at Ashtar and said.
A huge bloody magic circle built around Roman Square.
With that as the center, the entire land of the capital was shaken, and the masses of thoughts of the victims who died in the war began to come together.
The moment the gray energy gathered, a giant ice giant appeared in this world.
The overwhelming power that freezes everything as soon as it touches your feet.
“… … Are you new?”
As Kariel muttered while staring blankly at the giant, Surt’s words were heard.
– That’s a new thing.
Having said that, Surt inflated his huge body and tried to deal with the ice giant himself.
But Kariel shook his head.
“I will deal with the disaster you have made with the gift you have given me.”
After saying that to Eshtar, Kariel stretched out his hand toward the sky.
Then, the red energy that had spread throughout the Roman capital began to converge toward the sky.
“The dead of hell should be in hell.”
The moment he said that, the coals of fire fell like a flash towards the ice giant.
The existence of hell was annihilated as it was by the power as if it was punishing.
Although the huge ice mass disappeared as if evaporating, the surroundings did not melt or burn in the heat of the fire.
The waves from the pillar of fire only turn the armies of hell into ashes and disappear.
Seeing this, Ignit’s army shouted.
On the contrary, the Roman army lost its fighting spirit.
Not just soldiers, but knights and wizards all surrendered to the overwhelming power and laid down their weapons.
Eshtar, who saw that, also looked up at Kariel with a disappointed expression.
“I don’t know what you prepared, but… … Neither Ignit nor I was just playing.”
Saying that, Kariel slowly landed on the floor.
Kariel was standing defenseless, neither emitting the power of fire nor using magic.
But Eshtar lost the will to resist.
Would a mage be able to imitate that kind of power?
They may be able to do it if they have their own unique anti-magic.
However, their strength does not discriminate between enemies and allies.
Only the dead and the beings of hell could wipe out that power that only Kariel could do.
‘Unfortunately, the minimum goal has been achieved.’
Prohibiting Ignit’s main force from heading eastward.
Having accomplished this, Eshtar drew a dagger without any regrets and tried to stab it in his neck.
“I can’t sleep.”
When everything he had prepared ended in vain, Kariel, holding Eshtar’s hand, who was about to commit suicide, ordered the knights of the Imperial Palace to subdue him.
“You must live to convince the people of Rome.”
“… … Are you going to insult my loyalty?”
“It’s an insult… … .”
Kariel said while looking at Eshtar, who was looking at him with an angry expression.
“You see for yourself. And decide who is right. After that, you have to convince the Roman people or not.”
Having said that, Kariel looked from afar at the half-brother who was resisting to the end.
Like a Master, they were not easily overpowered, but they are also human.
Unless they were invincible, they were eventually overpowered by the army, and Roman’s army had no choice but to succumb to the overwhelming force of Ignit.
Contrary to his preparedness for death, the siege of the Roman capital ended with many troops surviving.
“ah! I will tell you something in honor of you who did your best to save time.”
Kariel said as she watched Eshtar being dragged by the arms of the imperial knights.
“I have no intention of conquering Roman completely.”
Ashtar tilted his head at Kariel’s words, then opened his eyes wide.
“Also, Ignit didn’t show off all of its power in this battle.”
Having said that, Kariel smiled and turned her back. Seeing that, Eshtar tried to say something, but by then Kariel had already disappeared.
Even though he did his best to buy time, he was unable to deal a big blow to Ignit.
In addition, he put on a dejected expression when he realized that everything was under Kariel’s plan.
“… … Is it the power of the emperor who unified the western continent?”
Like her master, Kariel was an unusual person.
He fought countless battles throughout his life and rose to the ranks of great generals, but just as he did not understand the Roman emperor, the emperor of Ignit was not a person in the category he could understand.
I don’t know what the big picture they are drawing is, but I thought that the final phase would eventually lead to a confrontation between the two.
When Eshtar, Roman’s master, was dragged to prison after thinking about it, the Ivan brothers were also locked in prison with restraints filled.
By the time Ignit captured the Roman capital, the Vanguard Army, which had joined the Confederate forces and moved eastward, immediately began moving north.
At the same time, the detached unit that broke the demonic gate also quickly moved eastward.
「The detached unit that broke the demon gate! Straight to the Northeast? Destroy the army of the demons and move eastward!”
“North of the vanguard army. Destroying Sandria’s army one after another, we’re moving north quickly!”
The detached corps, centered on the Master, quickly headed northeast while sounding the news of victory one after another.
But the truth was Ignit’s main force.
「Finally occupied Roman capital Chronople! All that’s left now is Dongjin!”
News of Ignit’s capture of the Roman capital spread throughout the continent.
As expected by Roman, Ignit’s main force did not move immediately, but showed a move to stabilize Roman’s capital.
In addition, Ignit’s vanguard army, unlike the fast-moving north, began to work on building a supply ship by capturing some fortresses as it got closer to the land of death.
Then Roman’s commanders, who had been suspicious until the very end, finally lifted their suspicions about Ignit.
“It will take at least a month for Ignit’s main force to reach here.”
“It may take longer if you come with the occupied territory fully stabilized. It will take more time if we fall into the trap we have prepared for you.”
At their words, the Roman Emperor asked, clenching one of his chins.
“What if Ignit returns to the south like the Vanguard?”
“In that case, you can just move the things you prepared before. Even assuming the worst case scenario, it will take a good month.”
“Will the battle against the demons be resolved within a month?”
“The war itself may not end. Haona ruins will be found.”
At the commander’s words, the Roman Emperor nodded.
In any case, the goal was not to completely ‘take over’ the Black Canyon, but to ‘discover’ the gates of Hell.
At the judgment of the Roman commanders, the emperor of Roman finally nodded.
“Enter the canyon. Focus on securing the area where the Gates of Hell are buried.”
“number of people!”
Those who bowed their heads at the emperor’s command quickly moved.
As the large army began to move to occupy the old ruins that were supposed to be sleeping in the Black Canyon, the demons who had been eyeing it until the end also began to move.
When the demon commanders showed a movement to enter the interior of the Black Canyon, the Roman army and the demons began to fight fiercely to occupy the entrance to each other.
As the battle between Roman and the demons began in earnest, Kariel, who had been stabilizing Roman’s capital, summoned the commanders as if he had been waiting.
“Has it finally started? It takes a long time.”
Kariel shakes her head as if she is fed up with Roman, who does not raise her suspicious eyes until the end.
“Still, it worked out as Your Majesty intended.”
Kariel smiled at Rokan’s words.
“Okay, now we have to move.”
After saying that, Kariel looked at Tarion and asked.
“Any reinforcements from the Iron Wall?”
“It will arrive within tomorrow.”
“great. get ready to move With the exception of some troops, the entire army advances east through midnight.”
“Yes! your majesty”
The commanders bowed their heads at Kariel’s command.
The main fortress on the way to the northeast of Ignit’s main force was blocked by an army prepared by Roman.
Then, you might think, why don’t we go back to the south like Seonbong-gun?
Surely that might be the case.
However, it takes more time than going in a straight line.
Kariel had no intention of wasting time like that.
“Your Majesty, preparations are complete.”
“I left first.”
To Kariel’s question, Rokan lowered his head and answered.
Then, Kariel nodded and ordered the main force to advance.
As the full moon rose high in the sky, a great number of troops came out of the Roman gates.
As everyone rode on horseback and moved quickly, the airship carrying Kariel rose to the sky and advanced with hundreds of airships.
– Chijik! Ignit’s main force moved. Heading northeast quickly!
“Executing the operation to block the main forces!
Panicked by Ignit’s unexpected movement, Roman’s commander quickly orders the execution of the operation.
However, the result was different from their expectations.
– Collapse of the first line of defense.
“What? No way… … . Dragging time with the remaining units!
– No. Annihilate the armies of Hell.
The commander became contemplative at the report of the signalman and hurriedly reported this to the Roman emperor.
And this fact spread throughout the entire army in the eastern continent the very next morning.
“Ignit’s special forces are cleaning up the army of hell.”
An unknown unit whose identity has not yet been revealed.
As they smashed Roman’s army, Ignit’s main force was opening the way for them to go.
