“The assassins who followed the owner of the Red Tower to the Fifth Prince have been confirmed.”
The third prince, a cold-looking man bowed his head in front of Aloken Piers, reported.
He was a skilled assassin who came at the behest of the second prince to help Aloken.
“This… ..wouldn’t have been hit in the back of the head if I hadn’t put surveillance on it?”
When Rayman asked playfully, Lisefield, the owner of the tower, opened his mouth with a smirk.
“I’m here to get a wagon.”
It wasn’t hard to guess why he was hiding behind a joke thrown at him.
It is common to put flags representing those on board in the nobles’ wagons.
The Master of the Blue Tower will take the opportunity to call the court meeting to officially announce that the Blue Tower will be siding with Raymond.
In some cases, court meetings are generally attended by many nobles.
They will all see the flags of the Red Tower and the Blue Tower, which are hung on the Fifth Prince’s wagon.
“The carriage will be narrower, let’s get on.”
He grumbled as if he were complaining, but Lisefield saw a faint smile spread around his mouth.
“What are you doing? Get on board, I don’t want to be late!”
First, the Fifth Prince who got on the wagon urged.
The Blue Tower Master climbed into the carriage with a clear smile, and the Red Tower Master followed with a tense face.
Along with four members of the Fifth Crown Prince’s Guard on horseback and Gesteine driving the carriage their security was very tight.
Gesteine, who confirmed that the formation was properly formed, sent a departure signal, the carriage began to advance toward the palace.
“The security is very strict.”
Alex, sitting on the curb, said.
The inspection at the main gate of the Imperial Palace was very strict, and the many imperial knights and soldiers were patrolling with a sad spirit as soon as they crossed the threshold made the atmosphere heavy.
Gesteine, who was driving by the carriage, glanced around and opened his mouth with a calm look.
“Not long ago, the Emperor was attacked. I don’t think this level of security is enough either.”
That was a high-ranking knight answers.
Alex let out a short, indisputable sigh.
The conversation between the two was over, but another conversation was about to begin in the carriage.
In continued silence, the Fifth Prince, Raymond, opened his mouth first.
“Do you know why I was called to a court meeting this time?”
After being attacked at the banquet hall, he was stable and immersed in training afterwards, so he was not told about what was going on in the palace.
He read up to the third volume of “The fallen Empire” and memorized the author’s book’s settings, so he roughly knew about the situation going at home and abroad, but he wanted to hear more information from the Master of the Red Tower or Blue Tower.
“Maybe it’s because of the Heifer Empire and the Kingdom of Fresyria. They say they’ve deployed additional troops on the border.”
It was Berenus Kyle, the Master of the Red Tower, who answered the question.
“Did the Northern Central Army move toward the border?”
“Yes, Your Majesty the Fifth.”
“There must be a friction on the border.”
Although it is said that the Black Mountains and the Amul Forest are buffer zones, it was not difficult for any of the excellent rangers of the Heifer Empire and skilled mercenaries of the Fresyria Kingdom to sneak over.
A large number of people would be difficult, but a small number could.
“There are already large and small skirmishes on the border with the Heifer Empire.”
This time, Lisefield replied.
“I heard you guys were called, too.”
“Yes, all three of us have been called to a court meeting, except for His Majesty the Fourth.”
At the end of the Lisefield statement, Raymond could guess the Emperor’s thoughts.
It was clear that they would send the Imperial family to boost the morale of troops deployed on the border.
He was thinking about how he could get out of the Palace, but it would be easier than he thought.
‘If so, I must go to the border with the Fresyria Kingdom, to make sure of……!’
The Black Mountains, along the border with the Kingdom of Fresyria, have the “soul sword” asleep.
Outside the carriage, the Secret Squad announced their arrival.
First, when he opened the door and got off the wagon, the imperial knight who came out to meet Raymond raised his right arm over his chest politely as a salute to escort an imperial family member.
Thanks to rumors that the Emperor was saved from the banquet hall by Raymond, the imperial knight’s eyes on the Fifth Prince were favorable.
“Fifth Prince, I’ll show you to the conference hall. Only the main gate of the conference hall is allowed to accompany the Secret Squad.”
As he nodded slowly, the imperial knight took the lead and moved on.
Raymond walked behind and looked around.
A carriage of nobles gathered in front of the tall building was seen. In the eyes of some aristocrats gathered near the wagon, the flag of the Blue Tower and the Red Tower hung next to the flag of the Fifth Prince.
“Was it true that the tower stood behind His Majesty the Fifth?”
“There’s the flag of the Red Tower.”
“What the hell has happened in the last few months?”
The nobles chattered. There were positive comments, but there were also a lot of negative comments.
But Raymond ignored their conversation and continued to walk forward.
Gesteine, who was about to refute for a while, also followed without saying a word when his lord didn’t care.
“That’s all I can show you.”
When he reached the door of the conference hall, the imperial knight bowed his head and stepped down.
