A (Sloppy) Report [Part 2]
“Pardon me, Your Majesty.
Could we discuss the matter of my older sister not being the Holy Maiden on another occasion? Um, we would like to start our report on Imperial Japan…” William interrupted the conversation.
Not to mention William, the Stuart family had also felt that what the King told them was good news because they wanted to avoid standing out at all costs.
To be honest, the family couldn’t care less about the topic of the Holy Maiden itself.
Rather than that, the real problem was the tailless whip scorpions.
Last night, after moving a large amount of Over‘s rubble and seeds until they were dead tired, the family endured through their sleepiness and held a family meeting.
The meeting’s agenda was on how they could keep the tailless whip scorpions a secret.
That was the one thing that could not be revealed.
When someone suggested giving the tailless whip scorpions back to the Royal Family, Emma started sobbing.
Well, the family also felt like they couldn’t return them in the first place now that they had gigantified to that extent.
They had hushed up Imperial Japan successfully.
The threats to Oliver also worked effectively.
If they could fully deceive the King here with their report, the achievability of keeping the giant tailless whip scorpions a secret forever would increase.
You must be at a loss due to hearing this right upon your return.
Emma-chan, I know that it is disappointing, but take heart.”
Emma, who was told she was not the Holy Maiden, looked like she was brooding over something.
Feeling distressed upon seeing Emma’s silence, the King no longer wished to discuss the topic further and thus listened to her caring younger brother’s suggestion.
“…Huh? …No, I do feel that the title Holy Maiden should be granted to a more fitting lady…”
Emma replied to the King lightly while thinking she should cross-check with Joshua about the Kingdom’s view on Holy Maidens later.
She really hoped that the Kingdom was not a country where someone could be acknowledged as a Holy Maiden just by looking at someone else’s breasts.
“Well then, allow me to begin our report.”
Melsa cut in between Emma’s words and began reporting before that daughter of hers could say anything unnecessary.
“To summarize everything, Imperial Japan’s monster disaster, the plant hazard, was already resolved.”
“All we did was provide food aid.”
“Imperial Japan has an abundance of magic stone resources, and by making good use of them, they were able to cut down Over…”
“Just a moment, please!”
The prime minister, who had been listening in silence until then, couldn’t help but speak up.
“Is there even such a too-good-to-be-true situation like that—…”
Melsa pushed her way through with vigor.
The plans the family came up with in the family meetings had always been sloppy, but if they could at the very least somehow convince the prime minister, tackling the king would be a piece of cake.
This was the critical moment.
“Imperial Japan is a very well-developed country.
They can exchange letters with people from far away instantaneously, start a fire, and store water, all through the use of magic stones.
Even at night, the indoors are as bright as day because of the magic stones, and even when people get drenched by the rain, they can dry themselves completely with magic stones in no time…”
“I-Is there really such a utopia…”
Melsa glared at the wavering prime minister, completely silencing him with her gaze alone.
“And samurais, the equivalent of knights and hunters, have such great martial prowess that they can even split steel (cans) cleanly in half.”
“Wha-! Steel, you say…”
“Yes, steel (cans).”
Even in the Kingdom, there were no knights who could cut through steel.
No hunters would even think of cutting steel.
*Gulp* …The King and the Prime Minister held back their breaths.
Neither of them had thought that Imperial Japan, which they assumed to be in the position that needed help, was far superior to the Kingdom in terms of technology and military power.
