The Prince Wants To Retire chapter 188
Abduction 4. A new continent full of problems? (2)
Kariel, who passed today safely, sighed.
‘I’m sure it wasn’t like this at first… … .’
When I first met Ayla in the Principality, I had no thoughts.
It’s just that she’s capable and a bit of a weird woman?
At that time, there were so many scattered things that I might not have been more interested in it.
But no matter what the past, they were married, but instead of enjoying their honeymoon, they started to feel sorry for working after returning from a trip.
So I started to pay attention, and at some point I found myself drawing attention even though I didn’t feel guilty.
“Are you really destined to be captured and live like the ministers?”
After muttering like that, Kariel sighed and looked up at the sky.
The Empress was never angry.
However, when I feel strangely disappointed and sometimes staring at me, I withdraw without realizing it.
“I’ll have to ask them later.”
Seniors who have been married for a long time will tell you an excellent way to overcome the current crisis.
He removed those strangely annoying thoughts and focused all his attention on the new continent.
While returning from comforting the Empress, Kariel’s office was covered with information and maps about the existing New World.

Just like when making plans for the eastern continent, this time the office was filled with information about the new continent.
“… … It’s difficult.”
Although I spoke proudly to the Minister of Foreign Affairs, the issue of the new continent was actually a difficult one.
If you lead the Ignit top power right away and hit the new continent, you will win.
The problem is then
As the foreign minister feared, the eastern and southern islands fear that they will be occupied too, which will soon affect diplomacy and world trade networks.
Therefore, a method of intimidation at an ‘appropriate level’ was needed.
In a word, it is terrifying.
“At what line should I stop?”
Cariel struggled all night long, taking on a much more difficult task than just smashing it at random.
‘How can I get a rumor that I’ve conquered the new continent?’
‘Should I give you a warning by completely destroying the Kava?’
‘Are you going to put pressure on trade?’
‘Are you going to assassinate the upper class people with the Grand Masters?’
Cariel, who had been thinking about all sorts of things, shared his thoughts to the ministers the next day.
“So, does your Majesty mean that Ignit will mobilize every possible means of intimidation?”
At the words of the finance minister, Kariel smiled and nodded his head.
“older brother… … no majesty Then the image of Ignit will fall to the abyss.”
At Luffiel’s words, the other ministers nodded their heads.
“So, you have to make a good image. Tarion.”
As Kariel ordered in advance, Tarion has been devising a plan to destroy the image of the New World.
“The Minister of Home Affairs.”
“We have already started pre-work around evening.”
In order to enter the groundwork to convince the people of the empire, the Minister of Home Affairs directly moved the officials of the Ministry of Home Affairs.
Everyone had a hard time staying up all night for the first time in a while, but since they would give you a definite reward later, they went straight to work even after staying up all night.
“great. Schedule my trip to the new continent as soon as possible.”
“Haona… … your majesty. Hurrying can make things go wrong.”
When Rufiel asked if he was in too much of a hurry, Kariel nodded knowingly.
“know. But I don’t have time.”
There are already signs appearing all over the world that you don’t know about.
As if there is a saying from old times that you have to catch fish in the pasture before the problem grows, it is better to suffer now than to have a big war happen.
“I’ll make it feel like I’m going to convince the countries of the new continent myself.”
“Are you going to start off fast, but go slow?”
Cariel nodded at the quick-witted Chancellor Luther’s question.
Then, the other ministers gradually realized what the core of Kariel’s strategy was.
1. The Emperor of Ignit visits the New Continent for the peace of the Continent.
2. At the same time, the incident with the New Continent leaked inside Ignit.
3. When public opinion moves, Ignit will put pressure on the new continent and carry out an appeasement operation.
4. If you do not listen to the words, attack the new continent with all means.
This is how to work sequentially.
“Ignit is only moving for world peace.”
At Kariel’s words, the ministers and Luffiel nodded.
In fact, from Ignit’s point of view, it was really for the sake of world peace. Although they are revered as gods, the existence of a giant snake is no different from a monster from Ignit’s point of view.
That’s why you don’t know when to meet a threat. Could it be a sufficient justification, and above all, isn’t it to solve what is happening all over the world?
From the perspective of the new continent, they would try to resolve unfair trade on this opportunity, but Ignit did not have to do it.
After all, each country has its own circumstances.
If you twist them, you will either become stronger or you will have to increase your technical skills.
“What if we put more pressure on the countries of the New World here?”
“I don’t know about the nobles of the New World, but the people will have a really hard time.”
As the Minister of Finance said so, he showed the current average per capita income of the countries of the New World.
Less than a tenth of Ignit’s wages.
In addition, the food situation was not good because most of the food they produce is sold to Ignit.
The only thing that kept them full was the ruling class that ruled them.
“It’s unfortunate, but it can’t be helped.”
At Kariel’s firm words, the ministers nodded heavily.
The situation was urgent.
There was no room for caring about the people of other countries. It’s obviously unfortunate, but that was a problem they had to solve on their own.
Ignit also escaped the Dark Ages on their own, and achieved the feat of unifying the continent beyond being treated as a hukou, so they too will have to stand up on their own.
What’s more, Kariel didn’t have good feelings about the new continent.
“Do you remember what they did when we were having a hard time?”
The ministers opened their eyes wide at Kariel’s question and then nodded their heads.
Their actions when they fought fiercely with demons in the eastern continent and struggled with the problem of hell.
that could never be forgotten.
It was the appearance of neglecting that it was not happening to them right away.
Actions that were sent only at the time of the warning that it could spread into a global problem later on.
Above all, the New World did not send reinforcements until the war was over.
“It is said that only the nobles were corrupt, but I heard that most of the people of the New World refused to participate in the Great War.”
The moment Kariel spoke up to this point, the eyes of the ministers changed.
In particular, Luther had the greatest change.
He had a difficult time, so his compassion for the people of the new continent had completely disappeared.
“To be bright, thoroughly! Do you understand?”
All the ministers and Luffiel bowed their heads in response to Kariel’s command, and then stood up.
* * *
And the very next day,
“The remnants of the past that cause problems all over the world. Isn’t the war over yet?”
“By the remnants of the past, strange phenomena are being witnessed one after another!”
Tarion moved to lay the ground rice first.
As reporters secretly unraveled confidential information and threw micha to eat, the reporters who found the scoop began to rush at it.
After that, the military moved.
“It is more serious than I thought! There is a possibility that something as serious as a great war may result.”
At the military expert’s prediction, the imperial people put on a serious expression.
However, the reaction of some countries was different.
Merchants and some countries who had already heard that the New World was playing tricks thought that Ignit was putting on a show.
Some claimed that the emperor was working to abdicate the throne.
However, this atmosphere soon changed.
「His Majesty the Emperor is going directly to the New Continent!」
People were perplexed when they heard the news that Kariel was leaving for the new continent.
And it was the same in other countries too.
「Emperor Ignite is about to leave for the New Continent to investigate strange phenomena!」
“The rumors of a world crisis floating around! Is it really?」
Amidst many people’s doubts, Kariel finally set foot on an airship heading to the New Continent.
Then, many experts who thought the empire was putting on a show until the end began to change their minds.
Many foreign people started to really believe the Empire’s announcement, but there were still some who did not believe it.
“I do not know yet. Emperor Ignit is cunning, so that could be a show.”
“okay. According to the information provided by the New World side, Emperor Ignit said that he wanted to meet their god.”
“It may be that Emperor Ignit has a desire to become a real ‘god’ himself.”
When Ignit opened up a public opinion battle, the New World also started to respond.
As long as they have a head, there is no way they can sit still and be defeated, so they battled public opinion.
Reporters on the side of the New World who are trying to drive the emperor’s personal greed.
But they were immature.
Compared to Ignit, the map on which the country was founded was relatively new, and above all, the level of public opinion warfare was different from that of the Ignit government, which had been forged through countless fights since Kariel was the crown prince, and those who had been secretly fighting among aristocrats for a long time.
“Are you making an announcement today?”
At Luffiel’s question, Luther lowered his head and answered.
The new continent’s public opinion war to drive the emperor’s personal greed.
The solution to that was simple.
“From now on, I will disclose the information the Empire has gathered so far.”
Announcement by the Minister of Military Affairs at the podium.
As the predictions made based on numerous data and the dangerous images contained in the video zone were released one by one, the reporters were in shock.
“As you can see, the remnants of the ancients are not the problem. A mutation of the monsters that ate them or the animals that ate their remains. That is the problem.”
What has been revealed so far has been shocking enough, but the Ignit government has decided to reveal everything.
A gate presumed to be another dimension opens and mutated monsters and remnants of the past devour all the power that leaks out in front of it.
What will happen if we leave it like this is self-evident.
When all the announcements by the military minister were finished, the people were silent.
“this… … Is that true?”
The military minister immediately answered the reporter’s question.
“As rumors are currently spreading, it is absolutely not true that His Majesty is going to the New Continent with an army due to his personal greed.”
Having said that, the military commander let out a long breath.
The next words are because no matter how much the minister of the military unit is, there is no choice but to be nervous.
“Every move the Empire sees now is for the sake of the world. As you can see, we don’t have much time. Today, the world is in danger comparable to the Great War of the past. The Ignit government intends to do its best to find a solution and will do everything possible. what if… … .”
The military minister cut off his words once and looked at the reporters.
Reporters gulping down their saliva at the look of the military minister who felt the chill.
“Your Majesty’s commandment was not to forgive anyone if it interferes with the Empire’s march for peace. Please make a wise choice.”
The minister of the military, who had spoken so far, came down from the podium.
Everyone had a shocked expression on the face of the minister of the military that said he would not do war.
What you just said was simple.
‘Don’t try to take advantage of this. If you try to use it to the end, the Empire will risk war.’
Reporters gathered in front of the Empire’s announcement, which was virtually a declaration of war, immediately sent it to their country.
And Kariel, who received all these issues from the airship flying in the sky, smiled.
“ruler! So what will you choose?”
Kariel muttered quietly and looked straight ahead with a cold expression.
To be honest, I had the intention of listening to the position of the New Continent once it was over here.
This is because if unfair trade continues for a long time, poor diplomatic relations can be established later when the technological gap with the new continent is reduced.
Taking that into consideration, I also thought about reducing the benefits that Ignit takes little by little.
But what if the New World made a different decision?
“please… … I hope you make a wise decision.”
