163-Ain's smile

Ein and the others returned to Snakes' mansion in King's Landing and reported to Patrick about what had happened.

'I understand what you're saying. In the meantime, I've got a good idea on how to use the lady, so let's get ready.'

The grin on Patrick's face made Ein shudder for a moment.
It was the same for Elvis.


'A messenger from the Earl of Snakes?
Baron Stein asks his butler.

'Yes, and the messenger is the Ein. What can I do for you, sir? I thought you'd found out about our spies.
The butler says.

'Ein, you have not only failed but betrayed us and followed that young monk! d*mn you! I wonder what he's after. Let's meet him, where is he now?

'I've got him in the parlor, sir.


'It's been a long time, Baron Stein.'
Ein says smiling as he sits on the sofa.

Baron Stein is annoyed by his expression,
'You traitor! You've not only failed, you've turned on him! What the hell do you want? I don't have time to talk to a fool like you!
He said,

'Isn't it rude to call me an imbecile, even if I am the Baron? Shall I introduce myself again?
Count Snakes is my knight, Ein. I hope you don't mind.


I was recently knighted by His Excellency, the Earl of Snakes. It should have been announced by the royal family, shouldn't it?

'I don't have to read every single thing about knighthood! What more do you want? I don't know anything about the interloper!

If a new nobleman is added or promoted, the royal family distributes documents to each nobleman, but Baron Stein doesn't seem to have seen them.

'I haven't said anything, but when you say you're a spy, it's like you're admitting it. Well, I personally interrogated him and he said he was hired by Baron Stein's family.

'I don't know! You can't prove anything with the ravings of a bandit!

'Very well. My master has a message for you.

I've prepared the best present for Baron Stein, and I'd like you to come to my home and receive it.

He says. I cannot tell you what the gift is, and you may bring as many guards as you wish. Also, my advice is that if you don't come, you will regret it. That's all for now, if you'll excuse me.

With that, Ein rises from the sofa.
With a smile that made Baron Stein look like a fool.

'You little brat, you look down on me!

'What do you intend to do? Do you want to go to the Snakes' mansion?

'I'll show you what I'm made of, you little fools! Gather the troops! He's the one who said he doesn't care how many you bring. We'll overwhelm them with numbers!


'My lord, I have done as you commanded, is that correct? Inviting the Baroness Stein to my home.'
Patrick answered Ein's question,

'Hmm? I'm not letting them into the house.
