The Prince Wants To Retire - Chapter 186
The Prince Wants To Retire chapter 186
Abduction 3. Is this a honeymoon? Is it a business trip? (2)
With the feeling that someone was throwing a pile of work for some reason, I started a full-fledged discussion with Seriel.
And in the end, Kariel entrusted Ayla with permission and left the Dominion alone.
Although he pretended not to be, his steps did not fall when Ayla’s eyes were filled with sadness, but he was half-forced by Seriel.
“I think so.”
“Are you like an eel?”
“I suspect the giant eel ate the leftovers of the remnants of the past.”
At Seriel’s words, Kariel tilted her head.
“What if it’s leftovers?”
“ah… … .”
Only then did Kariel understand and nodded.
“But will shit still have power?”
“Wouldn’t it be something different from cheap shit made of remnants of the past?”
Seriel also tilted her head, as if she hadn’t checked that far.
“Um… … .”
Kariel looked at Seriel with a meaningful expression.
It was annoying every time, but he did a good job with the work he entrusted to himself.
Even now, giving orders to search for any remnants of the past, and giving orders to subordinates to solve additional questions appropriately, it seems that his competence as a leader is no less than that of Ruffiel.
‘Recently, Luffiel has been having a hard time… … . If it gets too hard later, I might have to ask Seriel.’
After thinking about that, Kariel asked Seriel for information about the mutated monsters.
While she was obsessed with marriage, Seriel has consistently taken care of her business. Therefore, we have identified all the major risk factors on the world map, and have prepared some countermeasures against them.
The problem was beings that absorbed the remnants of the past.
The problem was that strong individuals among the existing monsters absorbed the remnants of the past and developed their abilities.
A gigantic eel that was lifted from the sea into the air by sorcerers.
Watching the giant snake writhing in agony from being struck by lightning magic, Kariel gave a serious expression.
“Isn’t the development pretty fast?”
Guys who grow even while fighting.
If the remnants of the past had a strong purpose to find their own strength, the mutated monsters they hunt now are different.
The character that relied on the monster’s unique instinct was still buried even after awakening.
The biggest problem is that the remnants of the past are hiding in order to find their past or trying to slowly recover their power.
However, the mutated monsters were different.
Was it because I experienced a sudden increase in strength?
They want to get stronger quickly by eating whatever they want.
Of course, if there are good points, there are also bad points.
“Is it starting to collapse?”
Perhaps because they randomly ate the remnants of the past or the remnants of their power, their body could not stand it and were falling apart.
When the strength to support the huge body is scattered to Junggu Heating, the body will collapse.
Neither the body nor the power in it were stable, but the power itself was powerful nonetheless.
“Is this the one who just ate the remnants of the past?”
Kariel’s expression darkened at Seriel’s answer.
As a result of checking it himself, the ones who awakened themselves by eating the power left by the remnants of the past had no element for Kariel to gain an upper hand.
Most of the remnants of the past came from Hell, and since they gained vitality by accumulating the power of Hell, even a little bit Kariel had an advantage.
But these were different.
The power of the remnants of the past is only a medium to awaken them, and the power they use is what they pioneered themselves.
“I think it must be a normal monster.”
At Kariel’s words, Seriel’s expression darkened.
“then… … The characteristics of the remnants of the past are… … .”
“It won’t make any sense.”
Data from the remnants of the past obtained during the Great War became useless.
There were still a lot of remnants of the past spread across the continent, and they too wanted to become gods, so it would be effective against them.
However, both Kariel and Seriel had serious expressions on their faces.
“The commander-in-chief of Seriel.”
“Yes, Your Majesty.”
“From now on, all the information network of the empire should be focused on these guys.”
Seriel, who bowed her head at Kariel’s command, hurriedly left her seat.
I felt bad.
Kariel, who had been alert to signs of bad things happening in her previous life, knew that this was no ordinary occurrence.
It wasn’t as serious as the Great War, but more than that, it seemed like it would cause serious problems with his retirement plans.
And Kariel’s point was exactly right.
It’s because the gear nose has exploded.
「Large-scale ghost haunting in the area near Lafla Volcano!」
“Giant fish appear in the waters near Isar Bay!”
anomalies that appear suddenly.
As if to say that Kariel is not immersed in the sweetness of the honeymoon, a big problem has erupted.
“Can this happen without a foreshadowing?”
When I asked Tarion, who had come to Kariel, he bowed his head without saying a word.
“I apologize, tell me about the problem.”
Tharion, who came to the Luminous Dominion in a hurry, told me the results of what he had learned.
It was Ignit’s negligent response that the situation had reached this point.
In fact, it is difficult to see that it is easy to say that most of the remnants of the past that escaped from the Giant Mountains are weak beings.
Moreover, the same goes for the remnants of the past who refused to join Asgard.
Ignit had no choice but to conclude that it was just a slightly stronger monster, and it was more important to stabilize the empire, which had been torn apart by all sorts of problems right away.
Didn’t that work?
Not even that. This is because they have been continuously working to find and kill the remnants of the past.
“A wave of power spread as Asgard collapsed. You mean that’s the problem?”
Countless remnants of the past died, and as a result, Asgard collapsed, spreading the aftermath across the continent.
The problem is that the wave affected in some way the remnants of the past that escaped.
“Are you saying that sealing the mountain range of giants wasn’t enough?”
“… … In conclusion, it seems so.”
The forces left behind by countless remnants of the past spread across the continent.
In fact, there was no way to prevent this.
After all, it’s something that will happen someday.
However, there was a main culprit who accelerated the work.
“A gate that exudes strange power. About that?”
“Currently unknown. However, it is estimated that the power came from a completely different dimension, not from a dimension like the demon world or the fairy world.”
“That’s right. If the demon world and fairy world are also considered as one dimension bound to this world, we presume that the gate that is now opened is a gate of a completely different dimension.”
As Tarion said, he showed the data he had found in ancient books.
In Ignit, which boasts a long history, a peculiar anomaly appeared once every few hundred years, and each time a being from a completely different dimension came over.
Of course, it was also described that most of them were not threatening except for those with special powers.
“… … your majesty?”
Tarion tilted his head as he saw Kariel suddenly making a serious expression.
However, despite his question, Kariel’s expression did not lighten.
‘no way… … .’
A conversation with Baldr suddenly came to mind.
And after he disappeared, the world that had collapsed came to mind.
‘Will this place also collapse without God?’
Kariel’s expression darkened at this assumption.
Although it lost its power for a long time and only the pattern remained in the form of a god, I realized that this place could be safe because even such a Baldr existed.
‘Without God, this place will be like a land without an owner.’
In the eyes of a god from another dimension, this must be a very tasty prey.
“under… … this bastard.”
Baldr who looked at himself with a sinister smile.
In the end, he knew he was going to be here.
The guy who said he might be okay for a while was really only for a moment.
‘It’s only been a few years… … .’
After letting out a long sigh, Kariel frowned, and Tarion, who was standing next to him, asked with a serious expression.
“Is it very serious?”
Everyone close to him knew that Kariel was hiding something.
It’s highly likely that it’s about God or the secrets of the world, so I’m just not in a hurry to ask.
“Yes, Your Majesty.”
“Go back to the Imperial Palace right now and reconvene the Secret Guard.”
At Kariel’s command, Tarion opened his eyes wide.
The Secret Guard almost disbanded as virtually all of its secrets were revealed.
Their resurrection meant the situation was more serious than Tarion thought.
“… … Shall I also call the former chamberlain?”
A former chamberlain who retired in old age.
“Are there any talents to replace him?”
“I know they won’t make it because the Secret Guard’s mission is over.”
“… … can’t do it Call.”
I know that it is impossible to call someone who has retired once.
However, the current situation was not easy enough to take care of that.
Kariel who called out to Seriel who was standing in the distance.
“Did you call?”
“You are ready to go to the New World right now.”
“You mean right now?”
“okay. As soon as I arrive at the Imperial Palace, I will deal with urgent matters and move on to the new continent.”
After giving that order, Kariel looked up at the sky.
Baldr, who has been freed from the position of a god that has been guarded alone for a long time, has become a body of freedom.
It was unknown whether he had disappeared or had disappeared into some other great flow.
One thing is certain, he knew he was going to be here, but he disappeared without a word.
“under… … When we meet again, I will hold you tight.”
After muttering that, Kariel gritted her teeth and headed for the Luminous Dominion.
“Hmmmm. Empress, I have something to tell you.”
Kariel, who began stuttering to Ayla, who had become the empress, began to explain the situation.
The main point was simple.
1. It seems that I have to return to the imperial palace earlier than planned.
2. I think I should leave Isla alone and go to the new continent.
3. I don’t think I will be able to have a sweet honeymoon life because of future work. Please understand.
Ayla, who smiled and nodded that she was going back to the imperial palace at first, started to get dark when she said that she would have to go to the new continent, and when she said that her newlywed life was over, she couldn’t control her expression.
Isla doubts whether what she is hearing is true.
How many people would understand Kariel’s words that she would go out after being married for a long time from her wife’s point of view?
“female… … Honey, I’m sorry.”
I threw away my solemn appearance and spoke kindly for the first time, but it was meaningless.
With an emaciated face from trying to soothe the weeping Ayla all night, Kariel got out of the Luminous Dominion ahead of schedule and boarded the airship heading to the imperial palace.
Kariel, who arrived ahead of schedule, took care of Ayla and took her directly to the empress’ palace, then headed straight to the emperor’s palace.
Then, the ministers gathered there and Rufiel greeted Kariel.
“Did you all hear?”
“Yes, but are you really going to the new continent?”
Cariel gave a small nod to Rufiel’s question.
“You don’t have to go to the new continent… … .”
“He is the only being close to God who has a favor with me right now.”
At Luffiel’s words, Kariel sighed and said.
He didn’t want to go either.
But I couldn’t help it.
Even on the continent, there are beings who have lived for a long time and have spirituality like the giant snake of the new continent.
If they ate the remnants of the past, they would have become like giant snakes in the New World. But they didn’t talk to Kariel.
That’s why I couldn’t tell if they were hostile or if they were the size of Quetzalcoatl.
“I don’t have much time. So you need to talk to a certain entity.”
Having said that, Cariel ordered Luffiel and the ministers to contact the kingdoms of the New Continent and make it diplomatically smooth, and to release the current facts to the continent in sequence.
And after a while, a shocking fact was published in the Empire’s public newspaper.
