87 Episode 87 "Hegemony, Mental Care of Subordinates"

 "From Shoma's point of view...

"Thank you for your time. Prim.
That's our frontier's pride and joy, the Shogun. I'm not sure if you've ever heard of it, but I'm sure you've heard of it.
I guess it's knowledge and connections that count. It's not easy to get in touch with Meneses, the traveling merchant, and place the beastmen near the border.
I've sent Princess Carol to Sylvia, and we're going to have a meeting with her and me later. Of course Prim will be there. ...... You know what?
"............ Yes. My king.
...... Are you mad at me?
...... I'm not angry. But may I ask you a question?
When you found Princess Carol, there were reports of her and her friends coming out of a strange hut. Do you have any idea what that might be?
Oh, yeah.
And according to Kate, Princess Carol's maid of honor, I think they moved while she was sleeping in the cabin. Also, I heard her say, "Hey ho. She said she heard a voice saying, "Hey, hey, hey.
I see.
King ...... knows what's going on, doesn't he?
We talked about this. We talked about Carol Glutra Whip.
Yes, I have. I'm sorry, but I didn't want to give away the details because I felt like I'd lost if I asked .......
It was a strategy to build a hut with 'soldiers of will' and place it in the forest near the 'Gurutra Territory'.

 I began to explain.

 I began to explain that in the world where Yukino and I lived, there were stories called Snow Shiro and Hansel and Gretel.
 In those stories, the main character gets lost and "accidentally" walks into a cabin in the forest.
 So in real life, if a traveler who is being chased by someone finds a safe hut, he might be able to lead him there.

That's why I've placed a number of huts built with Soldiers of Will in the forests near the border and along the roads. The frontier and the Kittle territory are both warded, so the soldiers of will can move without time limit, right?
...... Yes, that's right.
In the event that a person who looks like Princess Carol enters the hut, I've instructed the fence to move the entire hut to a safe place. Of course, I respected the wishes of Princess Carol herself. That's what Operation Carol-Gurtra Whip is all about.
"............ Ugh.
"But thank God Prim was quick to deploy the beastmen. It's a good idea to have a good idea of what you're going to be doing and how you're going to do it.
I'm a ...... soldier. ...... I'm a soldier.

 Prim's little body trembled and she began to cry.

I'm not sure what to make of this. I'm sure you'll agree with me. Huh, huh, huh, huh.
No, that's why Prim put the beastmen on the side of the forest so we could protect the princess smoothly. ......
Oh, yeah. ......
"So ......
Oh, my God. Come here.

 I pulled Prim's tiny body closer.
 I stroked her white hair like I would a child.

"Prim's been very helpful.
"...... Are you sure, ...... my king?
"Yeah. A lot of my strategies are weird, so I need Prim from Wisdom to follow me properly. Prim is an indispensable part of my army.
"............ Yes.
Don't cry when you understand. See?
"...... my king.
"Would you mind if I pet you while you're in your ...... "Shoshu Kakusei" state?
...... is fine.

 It's not easy to use people. .......
 I'm not sure if any of the famous kings in history took care of the mental health of their subordinates like this.

I'm not sure what to make of this.
In the name of the great High King of Formosa, I am awakening the Flying Master!

 Wings were born on my back and Prim's back was also born with pure white wings.
 I'm not sure what to do, but I'm going to do it.

I'm sure you'll be happy to know that the Harpy likes to have his wings stroked by someone with strong wings.
Yes. I'm a harpy too. My instincts are the same.

 Prim smiled tantalizingly as I stroked her wings.
 Then she narrowed her eyes in satisfaction...

It seems that the demon tribe has a habit of wanting to have their horns stroked by strong people.

"Oh. That's what I thought.
Do you think dragon-blooded people have the same habit?
I suppose so.
The king's world will probably want you to stroke the ...... word "demon" on it.
"...... prim. What are you talking about?
I'm sure you're not the only one.

 I looked at the entrance of the room.
 I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to do it, but I'm going to try.
 I'm not sure what to make of it, but I'm sure it's a good idea. ...... I thought we were all supposed to have a meeting.

"Brother Shoma.
"...... What's the matter, Lisette?
Princess Sylvia says she's ready for the meeting. ...... Can we wait while Lysette and the others have their horns stroked?
"...... Sorry. I don't think that's a good idea. ......
So we can get Lysette and the others later?
............ Yes.

 This is a great way to get the most out of your business.

 At the castle in the capital of Kittle's territory...

 A few days after Princess Carol was taken into custody in the forest of the Kittle Patriarchate.
 A few days after Princess Carol was protected in the forest of Kittle, a meeting centered on Princess Sylvia was about to take place at the castle in the capital of the Kittle Governorate.

 The participants were Princess Sylvia-Kittle, Princess Carol-Gurtra, and her handmaiden Kate.
 The King of the Frontier, Shoma (me), and the military strategist, Prim, were to attend as observers.

"Isn't Princess Renesmee here?
My sister is not very good at ...... 'King of the Frontier'.

 Princess Sylvia looked at me apologetically.
 I'm not sure what to make of this.
 In the event that you've got a lot more than one of these, you'll be able to get a lot more.
 And then she was traumatized by me and my "soldiers of will". I'm sorry.

 We're in the reception room of a castle in the capital of the Grand Protectorate of Kittle.
 We're gathered around a square table.

 Seated with their backs to the window are Princess Sylvia and the girl who keeps the records.
 To her right is Princess Carol-Gurtra and her maid of honor, Kate.
 To the right of them is Princess Carol-Gurtra and her handmaiden Kate.

"First of all, please allow me to thank you for ......, 'King of the Frontier'.

 Suddenly, Princess Carol stood up and bowed to me.
 Her cherry-red, wavy hair swayed as she looked up and saw me.

"Princess Sylvia has told me. "Princess Sylvia told me that the King of the Frontier stopped the pursuers of the Grand Protectorate of Gurtra.
That was just a coincidence. Don't worry about it.
"If it hadn't been for that coincidence, we never would have known about Princess Carol.

 Sylvia is looking at me with a twinkle in her eye.

I was going to tell the King of the Frontier about the soldiers and bandits of the Grand Protectorate of Gurtra, but the ...... King got the information easily.
It's a good idea to have a good idea of what you're looking for. It's really ...... stupid.

 Princess Carol sighed.

I'm not sure what to make of this.
Yes, they have. Yes, they have. They're about two hours away from Princess Carol.
...... What?
They'd have caught up with us if we hadn't. It was a close call.

 The Harpies are reporting in.
 The soldiers who were playing the role of thieves had indeed entered the territory of the Kittles.
 They were probably planning to raid the village to find out the whereabouts of Princess Carol.

Where are these people?
I left a hut like that on the road and it caught them, so I locked them up.

 I think they were trying to see if Princess Carol was there.
 When they came inside, the Soldier of Will locked the doorway.
 Specifically, it was transformed into a complete box with no entrance or exit.

I wonder if they've moved the whole hut to a nearby fort by now.
The hut?
I told them to hurry up and get the enemy out of here. It must have been pretty shaky, but ...... they're probably alive.
...... Huh.

 Our fences were pretty flippant. I hope he's okay.

"So, why don't you tell us a story, Princess Carol?

 After a few words, Sylvia said.

"Why did you risk leaving the castle to come here?
"...... Yes. Princess Sylvia.

 Princess Carol held the breast of her dress.
 She took a deep breath and then opened her mouth as if she had made up her mind.

I'm not sure what to say, but I'm sure you'll understand.


 The air seemed to freeze.
 I'm not sure if it's a good idea, but it's a good idea.
 I'm not sure what to say, but I'm going to say it.

It was originally planned that the Lord Keeper Kittle and my father, the Lord Keeper Gurtra, would work together to defeat the Ten Wise Men. But ...... my brother betrayed us. In addition, he captured Lord Argos and Lord Myrna and locked them in a tower when they tried to return to the Kittle Realm via our territory.
"My ...... father and my ...... sister.
I'm sure you'll be able to understand what I mean. I've been under house arrest for a while, but with the help of Kate, I was finally able to escape the castle.

 Princess Carol stood up and bowed to Sylvia and me in turn.

I want to defeat my foolish brother and the ambitions of the Ten Wise Men and rescue Princess Sylvia's father and sister. Please lend me your help.

 Princess Carol-Gurtra said this to him firmly.
