After that, reinforcements were sent from Clan-sama to the Khmer Fort.
I told them about the war situation, so they probably decided that we didn’t need such a large army, so they didn’t send many.
Clan-sama seemed to have completely surrounded the castle of Alcantes, where Basamark had lost a lot of troops in the failed attack on Beltud, along with the troops of the Paradise Province.
Clan-sama moved very fast, and it seems that they really moved quickly after repelling the attack.
It seemed that Clan-sama had the capacity to do this as soon as they decided that now was the right time.
While Clan-sama was besieging Alcantes since I did not participate in the Alcantes attack. Instead, I kept an eye on the movements of the Sights. It was Clan-sama’s instruction to keep an eye on them because it would be troublesome for them to come back.
There was no movement signaling an attack. Well, they probably won’t come again.
Since Canale was originally on the border of the province, it was impossible to completely let down our guard, but we relaxed it a little.
Personally, I don’t want to fight for a while, so it was easy for me to spend time leisurely.
As for the battle of Alcantes, Basamark seemed to have persisted, but it was not a battle situation that could be overturned in any way.
All the castles in the vicinity of the Alcantes Castle were also held by Clan, and there were no allies left, leaving Basamark completely alone.
In the end, Basamark’s resistance was in vain, and Alcantes Castle fell.
The fall was on June 15th, three months after Basamark’s attack on Beltud ended in failure. winter day. Alcantes had fallen and Messiaen was united under Clan.
To celebrate the end of the war, a feast was to be held at the Alcantes Castle, and I was to go there.
I headed to Alcantes with my guards in tow.
I didn’t take Ritsu or anyone else with me, though.
After all, we can’t completely neglect to keep an eye out for Sights, so they need Ritsu and Charlotte to be there.
The ones who came with me this time were Braham, Zat, and other elite soldiers.
There were about a hundred of them.
I can manage without them.
Since Braham and Zat are strong, they are perfect for guarding me.
It took about thirty days to travel from Canale to Alcantes and back by wagon.
The journey went smoothly, and we arrived in Alcantes on June 30.
This was my first visit to Alcantes, and as it was the capital of the state, it was quite large.
The symbol of the city, the Castle of Alcantes, was very huge.
Though it was not as big as the imperial castle in the capital.
It may be a great city, but I think Sempler is more active in terms of city life.
Sempler is a port city, and economically, it is a place where development is easier.
In terms of economic power, Sempler may be superior to Alcantes.
Before the feast was held at the castle, Basamark, the ringleader of the enemy, was to be executed.
At first, I thought that he would not kill him because he was his brother, but I was naive.
Clan-sama decided not to forgive Basamark and decided to execute him.
Even though he was a family member, they would not tolerate a person who would start a rebellion.
Or rather, because they are family, they can’t overlook it.
Because they were blood relatives, Basamark would be able to keep aiming for the position of Messiaen Governor as long as he was alive.
Killing him was the surest way.
The execution method will be beheading.
A huge ax is used to cut off the head. This is the most common method of execution in this world.
If it was just to make an example of him, they would do something crueler, like burning him with fire or tearing his body apart, but it seemed that he couldn’t be that extreme on his brother.
The execution of Basamark took place in the square in front of Alcantes Castle.
Since it had been announced, a large number of people had gathered there.
I was wondering whether to see it, but I thought that the end of the enemy’s main ball that was fighting should be seen.
I wondered if I should watch it or not, but I decided that I should see the end of the master of the enemy I had been fighting.
I didn’t even try using Appraisal.
There is no point in appraising a person who is about to die. If he was competent, he would be missed. And perhaps Basamark is a competent person.
Basamark rises on the execution table.
I’ve never seen him before, but he doesn’t look much like Clan-sama.
His hair is black and his face is not as neat as Clan-sama’s.
There was no hint of fear on his face.
He seemed to have accepted his fate and was self-aware.
Basamark took a deep breath and shouted.
“I foretell you! Messiaen will eventually be split! There is no point in killing me! Clan is not qualified to stand on top of others!” (Basamark)
I thought he was saying this out of spite.
Clan-sama is, frankly, capable and a good leader. I don’t think he’s unqualified to be a leader.
“I know him better than anyone!He is a despicable man with a small heart!He will lose his vassals confidence!I can see it in my mind as clear as day!” (Basamark)
Clan-sama listened to Basamark’s cries in silence.
He did not panic or react in any particular way.
Maybe he thought that no one would take Basamark’s shout seriously, or maybe he thought it was so far off the mark that he didn’t care.
In any case, Basamark’s screams didn’t seem to stir Clan-sama’s mind.
Clan-sama raises his hand toward the sky.
At the same time, the executioner with the ax also raised his ax.
Then Clan-sama swung it down.
The ax was swung down toward Basamark’s neck, and Basamark’s neck flew in the air with blood spraying, falling to the ground.
The life of Basamark Salemakia, the second son of the former Governor Messiaen, ended that day.
