183-sweet potato

It's been a long day of celebrations in King's Landing.

Today is the engagement announcement of the First Princess, Princess Crozier, at the Royal Castle.

Her betrothed is, of course, Ryan Abbott.

She has straight silver hair, blue eyes, and is about 5'9" tall. She looks a little timid, but she is definitely beautiful.

The way she approached Ryan, who was standing next to her, seemed to be happy.
In the first place, when Ryan was a Knight of the Royal Guard, he was the bodyguard of Her Highness Princess Crozier.
The love between the guard and the guarded.
It's a common story.
It was a love so obvious that everyone around them could see it coming.

Ryan asked his father to marry him, but he didn't because it would upset the balance between them.
So they are both very happy.

Now, there are many nobles in the north who want to be close to the Abbot family, but the Abbot family is not interested in that.

Since the northern mountainous region has been made their territory, they have to go out to the mountainous region to survey the villages, use military pressure and food to win over the rebellious villages who once said they would surrender to the kingdom, conduct a survey with the state for the construction of a new northern fort, and train the men of the mountain tribes as soldiers.

I also have to teach them the laws and customs of the kingdom so that they can live as royal citizens.
It's been a mad scramble.

'Congratulations, Sir Ryan!

At the engagement party, Patrick congratulates a slightly disheveled Ryan,
'Lord Snakes, I have a favor to ask you...' Ryan says to him.

'Are you talking about strengthening your troops? I hear you're having a hard time. I heard from you. Well, I'm willing to help my future brother-in-law, but I don't think I have a good reputation in that area, what are you going to do about that?
I ask him back.

'What did I do that was so bad?
Ryan asks.
'You haven't heard yet? It's military information, so it's not leaked? The mountain tribes, or are they called the North Mountain People now? If you ask them, they'll tell you in one shot, but, well, to put it simply, you could sneak into a rebellious village, jump the head of the chief, expose him, surround him with eight armies, and force him to surrender? And if they tried, I would have made them understand by force!

'Well... how thorough is thorough?

'Killing all adult males?

'Oh my god...'

'What do we do now?'

'What should we do...'

'Well, go ahead and try, and if I can't do it, why don't we have one of our knights do it? I've trained him well, so I'm sure he can train you.''

'Please, sir. My soldiers can't train them at all.

'Yes, if I can make time, I'll let you know and head there.

On this day, the royal family and the Abbot family were presented with a new liquor from the Snakes' territory as a gift.

It was sweet potato shochu.
