Turning his head in the direction of the voice, there stood the third prince, Aloken.
Following him, there were some people who seemed to be have superpower, and possess powerful Mana.
The knights and wizards of the Southern Mgic Towers.
‘The Genius wizard, the Third Prince. It’s my first time seeing him in person.’
Raymond thought for himself, but he was dumbfounded by his own thoughts and almost burst out laughing. Of course, it’s his first time seeing the real character from the novel.
Unlike in the novel “The Third Prince, Aloken” possess a common facial expressions.
Rather, he gives of the aura of being “good” was appropriate.
If he had met him without knowing the setting, he would have easily liked him.
“I was thinking about what happened today, brother.”
“Yeah, it’s a shame.”
Aloken raised his hand and made one step closer. His immediate subordinates backed away.
“Would you like to stroll with me around for a moment?” He uses an attitude as if dealing with a subordinate.
This was clearly an order.
Raymond frowned, but raised his hand to order Alex and the Imperial knights to step down. There is nothing good about arguing with the Third Prince here.
Also, he wondered what his good brother had in mind now.
If the two of them had a conversation, he might have a glimpse into his insidious mind.
“What kind of change of heart has happened to you since you’ve always been disobedient?” This was straight forward statement from Aloken.
‘Do I need to answer that?’
Raymond just smiled. Perhaps he didn’t like him, the Third Prince. Aloken frowned and opened his mouth again.
“Huh, perhaps… Are you interested in the throne?” He was now blatantly spouting what he thought about my actions. His voice now can overwhelm a weak person.
Depending on the answer, Raymond felt as if Aloken’s men in the back would come running towards him after pulling out their swords.
Of course, it will not happen.
“I don’t know what you’re thinking, but if you want to live long, you’d better give up your interest in being the Emperor.”
“Brother, are you threatening me?”
Raymond’s voice became cold.
Aloken, who rose to the level of a higher-level wizard, was nervous for a short while.
“You’ve changed a lot.”
His brother, who used to be a troublemaker, has changed.
“But I have only one thing to say. Get rid of the idea of being the Emperor.”
The Third Empress, Violet, who had been always favored by the Emperor, died suddenly because of illness, and the Emperor’s interest shifted towards the Fifth Prince.
If Raymond hadn’t been out for five years, he would have been a strong contender to the throne.
So Aloken did not want Raymond to be interested in the throne now, at a critical time.
If he participates in the succession to the throne, it will become more troublesome.
“Don’t be mistaken. I don’t think you’re a competitor. I just don’t want to be bothered.”
“I’ll keep that in mind.”
As soon as he heard the answer, Aloken turned around and joined his minions.
Raymond’s eyes locked onto their backs as they were moving away.
“Thanks to you, I’m a little interested in the throne now.”
His voice was too inaudible for anyone to hear, but it was his clear commitment.
Few days have passed since the first breakfast together after five years.
In the meantime, the Fifth Prince, Raymond, has been quiet in order to get rid of his reputation as a “Scoundrel boy.”
Contrary to Raymond’s intention, it caused a strange rumor.
“The Fifth Prince is not acting like shit anymore. He must have became crazy.”
The root of the rumor was not from the few servants of the Fifth Palace.
It was a rumor that went around secretly among the maids, and Alex, who happened to hear it, quietly told it to Raymond.
“It’s a secret that I must tell you, Your Highness, the Fifth.”
Alex, who finished talking, slowly lowered his head.
Perhaps because of Raymond kindness for a few days, Alex has recently been showing favor toward Raymond.
“Yes, I’ll keep it as a secret.”
Alex stepped down and Raymond sat by the window to organize his thoughts.
The Third Prince, Aloken, is starting to bare his teeth at him.
It was clear that even if he said that he was not interested in being the Emperor, the Third Prince would not easily believe it.
Raymond was sure it’s the same for the First and Second Princes.
‘I to have to get started.’
He doesn’t want to be ignored. Since it’s been like this, he needed to do it properly.
‘Emperor? If I want it, I’ll have it. But I need support in order to enter the Competition for the throne.’
He can’t just jump in barefooted.
“Behind the First Prince is the military and the knights. And the Second Prince is accompanied by the assassins. The Third Prince has the mages.”
Those three people were talented.
But Raymond had no one standing behind him and he was too weak just by himself.
‘There’s only one thing I need to do in order to survive. Take away the main protagonist’s Powers.’
At least on the three books he had read before, he knew the main character’s movements and the reason how he will get them.
As he happened to know the about the settings of the Novels, he also knew a little bit of Spear of Sacrifice, who was sleeping within the Pilias Empire.
“Where shall I start……?”
He had now decided on his future course.
It was hard to hold back his pounding heart.
A smile naturally spread on his mouth.
When he finally reached the top, he became curious about what would be the expression Aloken, the Third Prince, would make.
“Imperial No.7 Chamber. Shall I start from there?”
There was a “Spear of sacrifice,” a magic lost item by the southern wizards among the treasures inside the chamber.
