“Are you crazy, Your Majesty!?” ~ Gettenwo
The one who let out an angry roar at the very beginning was Gettenwo.
“Why, do you have an objection?” ~ Emperor
“I have nothing but objections! Let these guys give their speech and we’ll see! They will speak vulgar words and lose people’s trust in the future.” ~ Gettenwo
No, but probably some inexcusable words.
As I have guessed, Iifu and others were brimming with excitement.
“Hey, hey…… I won’t give a silly speech. I am going to let them see the best of me as I am.” ~ Iifu
‘As I am.’ When he said that, Iifu meant naked, obviously.
Of course, this metaphor was not unfamiliar in this parent-child relationship. The Emperor shot him a sharp look.
“The venue for the speech will be scheduled at the upcoming Bushin-sai. On this sacred event, any degrading act will be punished. We might think to consider it as a capital crime.” ~ Emperor
“Damn… that’s sneaky, father! You’re going to crash someone’s special skills!” ~ Iifu
“That is shameful, brother. Since we’re going to give a speech as a prince, we can’t play around, right? For the sake of the country, we should talk about constructive future policies.” ~ Ryausha
While saying that, a dirty light flashed in Ryausha’s eyes. The Emperor did not miss that look.
“And… what is that constructive policy? Let us hear it.” ~ Emperor
“Oh, that’s simple, father. We should exploit the tax and squeeze it until it will be on the verge of drying up. The person who cannot pay will be taken to dig out the canal, declaring nation-building that dies out from anguish and sorrow――Hah.” ~ Ryausha
I guess she was caught up in the moment.
Her head turned. After all, Ryausha too was apart of the fool gang. If you were too relaxed, you might make an unexpected blunder.
“Realistically, we are not allowed to threaten the poor. And then Sauran, what are you going to do? I am warning you that feigning illness is forbidden.” ~ Emperor
“How about if I want to press for a wedding to the court lady who left me at the speech?” ~ Sauran
“Do you think I will say, ‘that is good’?” ~ Emperor
Surprisingly, Sauran seemed to say it seriously, although it was a vulgar attempt. Indeed, he was a stubborn man.
“Besides, even if you give that speech, it is already too late as she is already married. While offering her resignation at that time, the manager brought her candidate to marry.” ~ Sugen
“That’s stupid. Do you mean that there’s a good candidate for marriage other than me, a prince?” ~ Sauran
“There is a lot of them.” ~ Sugen
The status as a prince might be attractive, but it was human nature for the marriage companion to stand in the way of success.
Incidentally, Sauran is stubborn but that was not all. This is the 15th time in total that he had failed to persuade a court lady.
Sauran hung his head, but suddenly, his eyes sparkled.
“Then, I am going to talk about my policy seriously, but what about building a big harem to secure the Emperor’s bloodline? Increased it to several hundreds of people and I will be surrounded by concubine――” ~ Sauran
“Sauran…” ~ Emperor
“Huh?” ~ Sauran
“That is your house.” ~ Emperor
The Emperor’s words sent Sauran sink to the bottom.
Sauran, who was defeated by the Emperor’s merciless words had his hands and feet on the floor in despair.
And then, the Emperor’s gaze finally turned to me.
“… This is bad, Gettenwo. These idiots involuntarily failed and dropped out of ranks. At this rate, my superiority will only be prominent.” ~ Sugen
“I think you should be yourself. You don’t have self-awareness and you’re stupid enough.” ~ Gettenwo
Oh!――and suddenly I had a revelation. And then I lifted Gettenwo’s body.
“Waa! What are you doing? Put me down, you bastard!” ~ Gettenwo
“Regarding the heirs’ speech, can I introduce Gettenwo to the public during the speech?” ~ Sugen
I take measures to force a strategy.
I can boost Gettenwo’s tremendous popularity by exposing her face, then the contents of the speeches of the four princes would be blown off without fail.
“Impossible. This speech is intended to bridge the gap between Gettenwo, who was famous as a chivalrous thief. If Gettenwo speaks on the podium, the difference will increase further.” ~ Emperor
I was dismissed instantly.
“Look! I told you so! From the beginning, I don’t plan to enter the court officially. To give a speech is the same as giving consent to enter the Imperial court, right” ~ Gettenwo
“Damn.” ~ Sugen
I clenched my teeth and dropped Gettenwo on the floor.
Now that all four sibling’s speech strategies have been suppressed, the only thing they could do was to give a plain speech. With a voice that was flat as possible and the contents that do not matter in anyone’s heart.
However, if that were the case, to break this contest, they have no choice but to show their personality. It’s the field that I’m excellent in.
The Emperor cleared his throat in apprehension.
“Ahh… Anyway, if you go on like this, I can see that all of you are going to give your speech with nothing but with dead eyes and a flat voice. However, with that behavior, it will affect my face as your parent. Therefore, I will give you only one help.” ~ Emperor
“Help?” ~ Everyone
All the siblings turned to look at the throne.
“I am not going to try to lower my evaluation. But, I am going to let you observe your siblings’ advantages. Even if you do not want to be an Emperor, you have to work hard to recommend one.” ~ Emperor
All the siblings who had gathered in close positions all dispersed at once and glared at each other. Only Gettenwo stood in the middle in absentminded.
Certainly, the situation became tense. With the Emperor’s words, the situation had entered a new phase.
The four of them were already in their fighting pose, they could not help but to mutually focused to search for their advantages.
“Damn. I could not find anything to praise……!” ~ Everyone
They could not probe at each others’ advantage.
It was expected that a desperate, fierce battle would happen at this time.
Translator and Editor Notes:
