Join our discord to get latest updates about the novel
The third option, which was neither ‘death’ nor ‘throne’ proposed by Iifu has suddenly resurfaced. That is, to let the next Emperor be Gettenwo, who was an official princess and has no problem with her character.
Although it was the plan that I wanted to implement for a long time, the person (Gettenwo) stubbornly refused it, so it was difficult to proceed――
”I’ve made my decision. As an older brother, I am proud of your decision.” ~Sugen
”That’s why I’m telling you to listen. It’s just a temporary mean to settle the people’s dissatisfaction.” ~Gettenwo
Not honest at all. Anyway, warm-hearted Gettenwo. We were in a situation where we would not change our characters even if the emperor died, she must inherit the throne as it is.
”Then, Old Man Ren, isn’t it alright if from now, the next plan of ‘Revolutionary Organization’ is to support Gettenwo?” ~Sugen
“It’s not alright! Hey, old man From now on, something like this――” ~Gettenwo
“No, this statement, it may be reasonable …” ~Renfu
”Old man? Hey, don’t get fooled. Just because you’re old, you don’t have to be senile at this time.” ~Gettenwo
Gettenwo shook Old Man Ren’s shoulder. Because she was going to abuse the old man, I gently put my hands and smiled like an elder.
”Stop struggling, Gettenwo. As I said before, the destiny plays a great role for the position of the Emperor. It is something cannot be attained by everyone something special that cannot help but fascinate people.” ~Sugen
”Because you’re a good-for-nothing, it only endorses the process of elimination. Even if you put chickens and pigs as a prince, it will still be more favored over you.” ~Gettenwo
”If the candidate for the throne is a person with doubtful origins like me, I’m sure he will be able to check my identity immediately. He’s as strong as you guys.”
”That’s not true. Hey, Old Man Ren? ……Old Man Ren?” ~Sugen
At that time, I noticed Old Man Ren was emitting a sharp glance for a moment. It was a cool-headed light to a military commander who does not choose any means to achieve one’s desire,
”Oh, yes. Don’t worry about anything. Regarding origins, regarding strength. Even if you’re a genius, if you’re lazy, the skill will be unused. If you accumulate more knowledge carefully, someday, you will be able to accomplish it.” ~Renfu
Old Man Ren stared at us sternly. However, after a while, there was a soft wrinkle around his eyes.
”If you guys decide so. Do you want to join the ‘Revolutionary Organization’?” ~Renfu
”Oh. If you change the activity plan to support Gettenwo, is it okay for us to join?” ~Sugen
Although management rank treatment was desirable, at this time, it was good to start from the bottom. After joining, when the enthusiasm was recognized, it will be decided that I will be promoted smoothly.
For a while, Old Man Ren, who was thinking silently nodded calmly.
”Alright. I will tell the members myself. For today, go home. I will keep this matter confidential.” ~Renfu
“Hey, you. Do you really trust that?” ~Gettenwo
”That? What are you talking about?” ~Sugen
On the way back, leaving Old Man Ren’s side to return to his home in the Fourth Garden, Gettenwo has deep wrinkles on her eyebrows as she followed me.
”The old man did not seem to seriously think of me as high as you. That is, it’s like he was pretending to be talking and plotting something. You can see through that much.” ~Gettenwo
”That said, wouldn’t it be nice if you could cooperate with pretending or anything?” ~Sugen
In fact, I am proud of the best result we got there. There was no death or enthronement for us, and on the other hand, Old Man Ren was not executed. There was no one at the disadvantage.
Gettenwo ―― well, the imperial throne is usually something to pleased about. Rather, let’s think of it as gaining a position.
”It’s late today, you can stay at the guest house today. Is there anything you want to eat for dinner?” ~Sugen
“You are too sweet” ~Gettenwo
And then, something stood out on the ground at my feet. A small knife was thrown by Gettenwo.
”For example, what if I really intended to become an Emperor for self-desire? There’s a possibility that I could even aim for your life. Shouldn’t you be more on guard?” ~Gettenwo
”Well, after all, we will not be killed by such a surprise attack.” ~Sugen
”He won’t be able to do it openly. At this time, he would be eating the dumplings that I brought to visit. Do you think that there is poison in it?” ~Gettenwo
“No, seriously. He isn’t the one who does that.” ~Sugen
Then, I have the confidence that the poison probably would not work anywhere. My father, the Emperor is a monster who was calm even after he swallowed the puffer fish’s liver.
Gettenwo’s face looked like she was poisoned. With a sigh, she picked up the small knife.
“And what about dinner?” ~Gettenwo
”After talking about this, do you still have the mood to eat in the palace? I will buy some food on skewers from the outside――but, I’ll give you some advice before leaving.” ~Sugen
Gettenwo pointed at me as if to press.
”Even if there is any contact with Renfu, don’t move around carelessly. I don’t think it’s possible, but if you have something in this course of the event, I will not become somebody else’s problem.” ~Gettenwo
And then, It was the next day that a messenger from Old Man Ren came.
