The princess is preventing the invasion of Kerich’s army with the Game Plan and the gift I left behind.
Meanwhile, I was in the Royal Capital at the same time.
I arrived in two days from the city of Wagner by horseback. By changing horses and forcefully running through night and day, it shortened the usual three days to two days.
By the time I entered the Royal Capital, I had exhausted three horses.
I was straddling a horse for so long I felt my crotch cramping and my ass hurting.
But without caring about it, I headed to the Libra Division’s barracks and tried to convene with them, but the military police stopped me.
“The Libra Division’s command is now being taken away from Princess Sicily at the behest of Crown Prince Maxis.” (Sicily)
That’s what I’m told. All the officers of the Libra Division appear to be under house arrest, they can’t be called back and are just waiting at their homes.
I clicked my tongue, but I didn’t scream or panic.
Right now, I’m not the only life I carry with myself.
Both Princess Sicily and the inhabitants of the city of Wagner hang on top of my shoulders.
With that in mind, I didn’t have time to “despair.” I didn’t have the luxury to waste time.
So I decided to choose the best method with the shortest time needed.
In order to take back the command, I went to Sicily’s eldest brother, Maxis, for a direct confrontation.
I headed to the military office where Maxis would be and knocked on the office door.
To be exact, I asked the receptionist in front of me to act as an intermediary, but the visit was surprisingly easily accepted.
Perhaps Maxis was expecting this to happen.
It seems that he is expecting the second in command and tactician of the Libra Division to come in to make a complaint.
Perhaps that’s why, when I was sent to the office, I was met with a grin.
“Originally there is no reason to meet a low-ranking person like you, but I took some time off my schedule.” (Maxis)
“Thank you.”, I say and Maxis continued.
He was obnoxious and haughty, but I wasn’t angry. I thought he was very similar to his brother Kerich.
However, the eldest brother Maxis and his brother Kerich should have been irreconcilable enemies. So, I ask him why he is acting in favor of Kerich.
“Of course, I hate my younger brother Kerich, he is a snake. I’m fighting for the throne against him, and it’s the same with Sicily. No, I think she’s more troublesome than my brother when we’re talking about popularity among the masses, right?” (Maxis)
“But she’s still your cute little sister.”
“I never thought of her as my sister. In the first place, our mothers are different.” (Maxis)
“But you both have the same father.”
“Well, how about that? That girl doesn’t look like my father. And she’s just someone’s little girl. Because she’s also some bitch’s child. It’s more likely that she was from someone other than my father.” (Maxis)
For a moment, 12 different torture methods came to my mind as to how I could kill him while he suffers in the worst of ways, but I shake off the thoughts.
The current purpose is not to kill the eldest brother Maxis, but to have the Libra Division move.
It was a foolish idea to let the emotions move.
“I’m not saying that you should let me bring in reinforcements. Could you at least return to me the command of the Libra Division?”
“I should have said it’s no good.” (Maxis)
“It’s not free. I’ll give you something in return.”
“In return? What can you give me in return?” (Maxis)
“How about Kerich’s neck.”
“… How.” (Maxis)
Maxis’s eyes are now alight with interest.
“Your Highness says that the princess is in the way, but no matter how much she gets in the way, the princess is the head of only a single division, and you don’t have to keep her reach from stretching. She has no influence on the military or the government.”
“But His Highness Kerich is different. If he continues to expand his power, he will be the one who will hinder your rise to the throne, Your Highness Maxis. It is already self-evident which one you should remove first.”
“…I see. There is that reason.” (Maxis)
“Hmmm”, he puts his hand on his chin and starts thinking.
It seems that his thoughts were settled in about a minute. He then spoke after writing something on a piece of paper.
But his words didn’t stop.
“I’ll temporarily side with that b*tch. I’ll even lend you, two divisions, under my control, not just the Libra Division. Well, it’s still considered attempted murder for the crime of trying to murder your real sister. That’s a plausible charge.” (Maxis)
After saying that, Maxis decides Kerich’s destiny with his mouth. He made a decisive decision with me in front of him.
“But you’re quite tenacious, is that how good my sister is?”
The moment Maxis says that she is a daughter of a bitch, the alliance that is about to come together breaks down.
I silently extend my right hand.
Maxis, who took it as me accepting the alliance, snorts and tries to hold his right hand out in an obnoxious manner, but I use it to pull his right arm.
“What are you planning?” (Maxis)
“I just feel like punching your face.”
“Well, that’s stupid. You do know that? I’m a royal family. Anyone who hits a member of the royal family is going to have their arms cut off.” (Maxis)
“Then I’ll give you this hand, so don’t let that foul mouth of yours flap anymore.”
When I say this, I hit Maxis. With all my strength.
Maxis was blown away a few meters and crashes against a wall.
His nose is broken and blood started to dribble.
I said, then I addressed the secretary who was completely speechless.
“Well, I don’t like hitting women, so I’m going to cast a spell to put you to sleep, but when you get up you will call for help, and say I’ve threatened you when a guard comes.”
Then I cast the spell [Sleep] on the secretary who nods, After doing that, I took the letter in the study before leaving.
I read the letter stating the return of command of the Libra Division. It was the one that Maxis had written before I hit him.
“Now the command is back to the princess. I can move them from the Royal Capital.”
When I returned to the lobby of the military office, I found a muscular man loitering there.
Lieutenant Victor. The staff officer of the princess and the lower commanding officers of the division were gathered.
Victor says with a grin.
“The fact that Your Excellency is back in the Royal Capital means that we will be doing something entertaining.” (Victor)
“Oh, it’s a war. This time we’re’s against 10,000 troops.”
“I know. Kerich is trying to erase the city of Wagner along with the princess.” (Victor)
“Yes. These are documents to move the division, but if we do not win, we’ll be punished as rebels, do you understand?”
No one flinched when they heard the words.
“It’s fine. I don’t want to serve a country that treats the princess as a rebel. At worst, let’s put the princess on a carriage and go into exile in the Altria Empire.” (Victor)
“That does not sound bad either. For the time being, the cause here is that the scheming Kerich struck from behind and attacked her. Here is the evidence.”
“Then, will that be enough?” (Victor)
“Well, the country has an institution that can easily squeeze evidence if needed.”
“Of course. I can still vividly remember.” (Victor)
Victor laughs disdainfully and agrees, and he seems willing to move. The same is true for the other officers.
“Now, it’s okay to entrust everything to you. Officers, you have your duties.” (Victor)
Victor and the other officers quickly left the military office when he said this.
