The Prince Wants To Retire - Chapter 175
The Prince Wants To Retire chapter 175
65. End of war! (2)
The meeting with Baldr was only for a very short time.
But somehow it felt like it had happened a long time ago.
I’m sure it’s been a while since I’ve woken up, and as soon as I’m about to wake up, ‘Uddeuk!’ and it sounded.
Fortunately, the worst I thought when I fell did not happen.
“Um… … .”
Maybe it was because it hadn’t been a long time since I woke up, so I turned around and looked around.
Not only was the entire room covered in magic circles, but it was also filled with all sorts of vials.
The therapists were full of will to respond in any situation.
Above all, looking at the coffin dangling with the potion, I could tell at once how much effort he had put into saving himself.
The moment Kariel called Surt into the air, the firearm inside her body naturally erupted outside.
– Sleep for a long time.
Surtur, who appeared as small as possible in case Kariel’s body was burdened, clicked his tongue and said.
“How long has it been?”
-half a year.
When Surt said that half a year had passed, Kariel’s eyes widened.
Was it a loud voice?
Suddenly, a loud noise was heard outside the door, and the door suddenly opened and the chief chamberlain entered.
The moment the old chamberlain opened his eyes wide and spoke, everyone in the vicinity checked Kariel outside the door with a surprised expression.
And after a while, rumors spread in an instant, and everyone from the ministers to the younger siblings rushed into the room where Kariel was.
Kariel, who knew this would happen, hurriedly washed herself, changed into a comfortable face, and greeted them.
“Huhhh! older brother!”
“Bye! ?! brother… … My brother wakes up… … I thought you would!”
Behind the two younger brothers crying, the ministers also looked at Kariel with their eyes moistened.
It was doubtful whether it was because of Kariel or because he was able to escape from paper hell, but in any case, many congratulated Kariel for waking up.
It was time for Kariel to comfort his crying brothers and weeping ministers.
“mi… … Riel?”
Miriael, who had grown so much, was walking slowly, struggling to hold back her tears.
But are you still young?
In the end, the moment she was held in Kariel’s arms, the tears she had been holding back burst out.
While comforting Miriel, who was crying in her arms, Kariel asked the chamberlain.
“How long exactly did I wake up?”
“Six months and fifteen days have passed.”
“… … It took a long time.”
Having said that, Kariel consoled her crying younger siblings for a while longer before getting up from her seat.
Seeing Kariel staggering up, everyone was restless and tried to help, but he firmly waved his hand.
“I’d like to hear how the situation has developed in the meantime… … .”
“Hyung-nim, get some rest… … .”
Rufiel said with a worried expression, but Kariel shook his head with a wry smile.
First of all, I wanted to hear quickly what the results were.
It was because it seemed that he would continue to feel uncomfortable without hearing what happened to the demon king and the demon king.
Then, Ruffiel, his younger siblings, and the ministers withdrew, and Tarion, the chief chamberlain, and the chancellor, who came running belatedly, explained the situation after Kariel fell.
“Are you sure the demon king is dead?”
When Kariel fell with the final blow, Tarion, who came with the shadows, confirmed it himself.
My heart definitely stopped.
The question was, why did you take the body of the dead demon king with so much care?
“I can’t rule out the possibility that the Demon King will be resurrected.”
Having said that, Kariel urged Tarion to say more.
After Kariel was moved to the rear, the Humanity Federation launched a massive attack on the Demon Lord’s Army.
Nevertheless, a number of high-ranking demons and several demon corps leaders managed to break through the siege at the cost of death.
In the process, mankind also suffered great damage.
The one and only Sunblade of the Kingdom was lost in this war, and Master Salvator of Iron fell into a coma.
Also, the mage of Roman also lost his life.
The Demon King Army, who inflicted extreme damage to the human army, despite the overwhelming superiority.
“The bull-headed demon commander was stronger than I thought.”
The bull-headed demon corps leader who showed more power than expected.
And the leader of the Demon Corps of the Tiger Clan, who showed even greater power than that.
When the demon army was pushed to its limits by Rokan and Ashtar, they suffered extreme damage.
Due to this battle, in the end, the main force of the Demon King’s army could not stop the Demon King from crossing the Demon Gate.
“In the end, you couldn’t completely confirm and kill the Demon King.”
Tarion bowed his head at Kariel’s words.
“after… … What are you going to do about the past? Rather, I want to hear about the situation in the empire… … .”
At Kariel’s words, the chancellor stepped forward this time.
“Have you not retired yet?”
“… … Now that His Majesty has awakened, I really intend to retire.”
Kariel smiled while watching Winston, who was still unable to retire, and listened to his report.
After the main forces of the Demon King’s Army crossed the Demon Gate, the situation on the continent was chaos itself.
The king of Golan began to devour the northern part of the eastern continent, and Roman and Sandria were united and resurrected as a desert empire.
Then, the alliances of the kingdom, which became urgent, united around the King of Knights.
The East Continent was united into three large countries.
The reason they were able to move like this was because Ignit was silent.
“Stop devouring the Mountains of Giants and the western territories of Romans, and focus on stabilizing the empire… … .”
Were they wrong?

Jaesang and Tarion swallow their saliva as they look at Kariel who is meditating.
“Good job. If you say that you want to eat all the way to the eastern continent for nothing, you will only get rid of it.”
No matter how powerful Ignit is, the empire has also been pushed to its limits due to successive wars.
In such a situation, why not increase the territory for nothing?
It only takes more control and only makes you more annoyed.

Just in case the situation arises, it was a hundred times better to stop while occupying only the vicinity of the giant’s mountain range.
“Anyway, you haven’t finished the war yet?”
“Yes. The imperial people and all the countries on the eastern continent hoped for Your Majesty to wake up and do it yourself.”
Kariel smiled at the chancellor’s words.
Even if it was because of the Empire, the East Continent had a hidden intention.
Since the war has not ended yet, they are trying to establish a new nation by absorbing the territories of the East Continent that have been destroyed in the meantime.
The center of it would of course be Golan, and the King of Knights would also have tried to unify the southern part of the East Continent by absorbing the countries that had been smashed in the process.
Cariel, who was not very interested in the affairs of the eastern continent, had no intention of doing anything more now that he had swallowed only the old Roman western territories, centering on the fortresses.
“I’ve improved quite a bit while I was away.”
“Luther and other emerging powers were very helpful.”
Now, Jae-sang strongly appeals that he really wants to retire.
As he said, the Empire has made tremendous progress during Kariel’s absence.
It was effective to rake up the technologies that had been passed down during the Empire’s Dark Ages to the bottom and develop the technology.
The peculiarity of war forced the people to make sacrifices, and as all the money was poured into technological development, it was impossible not to make progress.
The crazy sound of the ancient scholar who said, ‘War advances mankind!’
But now that’s over.
Obviously, the war is over and the time has come to focus on stabilization and development, so it doesn’t matter if Winston retires.
‘By the way, I’ll have to look at the angle of retirement.’
Even if it is difficult right now, you will be able to catch the angle in the near future.
Since Luffiel still remains as Crown Prince, I plan to leave the job to him, slip into the situation, and retire completely.
“Hmmmm! The pace of development is not bad. There were a lot of problems here and there because of the hasty reform, but this is a decent level.”
Having said that, Kariel asked while looking at Tharion.
“Is this the end?”
“That is… … .”
Tarion hesitated to answer.
Cariel frowned at the sight.
To Kariel’s sharp question, Tarion responded as if he couldn’t do it.
“after… … The warlock chief has been captured.”
“… … Warlock?”
Tarion nodded at Kariel’s words.
“Aren’t they going to the Demon Realm?”
“Most passed. The only one caught was the head of the warlock.”
The moment he heard Tarion’s words, Kariel’s brow furrowed.
“Are you left alone?”
“After stopping His Majesty’s magic… … It was in a state of being semi-decayed. In that state, I used up my life force to buy time.”
By sacrificing himself, he bought time for the warlocks and demons to escape.
“Are you still alive?”
“Yes. I saved him.”
At Tarion’s words, Kariel tilted her head.
“It seemed that His Majesty would want to execute him himself.”
After hearing Tharion’s words, he shut his mouth for a moment and fell into thought.
When I think of the hardships of a warlock from my past life to this present life, my teeth are broken.
That’s why I wanted to see and talk to the head of those damn warlocks in person at least once.
“Where are you?”
“Your Majesty, go to jail with that body… … .”
“Where are you?”
When I asked again, Tarion sighed and supported Kariel.
Even so, he stumbled, and eventually, accompanied by a wizard, he floated in the air and moved to the lowest floor of the prison.
“… … Are you the emperor?”
The head of the black magician who looks up at himself as a disabled man with gray hair.
“… … Yes.”
As everyone, including Tarion, stepped away, Kariel approached the warlock’s chief.
“I came because I wanted to ask you something.”
“… … .”
The head of the black magician who doesn’t even answer Kariel’s question and just looks at it.
Kariel asked him quietly.
“What the hell are you complaining about that makes you scream this shit?”
The damage to the empire and humanity caused by the black magician was unimaginable.
Even if the events of the devil and hell were predestined, the damage to the empire caused by the warlocks was not predestined.
If it weren’t for them, the empire would have prepared for destruction with less damage.
Above all, thinking about how he had to act like a dog because of the black magician in both his past and present lives made his teeth grieve.
“Tell me. What are you complaining about?”
The head of the warlocks smiled at Kariel’s question.
“A violation of fairness.”
“Do you look for something like that in the identity system?”
“Still, there is a degree. The Empire has long since gone beyond that.”
The head of the black magicians who spoke like that.
The reason why the black magicians united was simple. Even though they have the ability, they are confined only to the caste system and cannot expand further.
An unstable society where even children who need to be taken care of are brutally thrown out.
Trash-like merchants who sold even the bare minimum of human rights.
All of these things became the prey that could keep the organization called Warlock.
During the Dark Ages of the Empire, social irrationality became more acute.
It was the head of the black magician who experienced it properly. From being the subject of the Mage Tower’s biological experimentation, it later became a plaything for the aristocrats.
The family had long since died after living a life like slavery.
The problem was that not only the head of the warlocks, but most of the warlocks had lived this kind of life.
“rather… … The demons got better. The logic of the power they seek is cruel, but… … Even the powerful will be able to enjoy freedom.”
Looking at the head of the black magicians saying that, Kariel spoke softly.
“How are you now?”
“… … .”
“Are you still as unreasonable as you said?”
At Kariel’s question, the head of the warlocks shut up.

Just like the revolutionary forces, the world he had dreamed of so much was opening up.
There were still quite a few absurdities, but a pretty plausible world was being created, and at the center of it was the current emperor, the center of the imperial family that he hated so much.
“Can you tell me about your mistake?”
Looking at the warlock whose eyes were trembling, Kariel said softly.
“Every absurdity you said, it was definitely a problem. But the empire was improving, and it was about to develop for the better. It was your fault for trying to break that wing.”
Having said that, Kariel turned his back to make sure he had heard everything he wanted to hear.
“Will your subordinates be happy when they return to the Demon Realm?”
“… … .”
“If I had surrendered and repented of my sins, I would have lived a happier life here. Fortunately, the revolutionary forces did not make stupid choices like you.”
At those words, a single tear fell from the dark wizard’s dazed eyes.
As Kariel said, the revolutionary forces rebelled against the Empire, but they held onto the hand that Kariel gave and did not let go.
So now they were able to grow into the core talents of the empire.
On the other hand, what about the Warlock?
“… … If an emperor like you had appeared earlier… … .”
Kariel comes out of prison leaving behind the gray-haired man he regrets.
Now the warlock has disappeared from this world.
The demons also disappeared.
I didn’t know if they would open the gate and invade again in the future, but that’s for future generations to bear.
Everything that could threaten the current Ignit Empire has disappeared.
So, after leaving the prison, Kariel gave Tharion an order without hesitation.
“I’m going to make a declaration of an end to the war. Get ready.”
“Yes! your majesty.”
As the news of Kariel’s awakening was just beginning to spread throughout the Empire, a door-size headline appeared in the public newspaper.
“Announcement of the end of the war!
As of this time, we declare that all threats to the Empire are gone.
