It was the name of the body of I was in and the name I would be using from now on.
Not too out of the place name but also not that attractive and ugly.
In borderline to be exact.
Looking at myself in the mirror, I can help but feel relief, seeing that the face of the prince is something I could use.
An average face, per se.
Well, since it will be the body I would use, the face is fairly handsome in my opinion.
The way his grey eyes seemed to be dead and his lips which is pale as white. A black hair that is black as coal and stature that is right for this bodys age.
Everything match perfectly.
They say he is eighteen years old which is kind of young to me.
”All right, lets start rebuilding this kingdom. ”
Sitting down in a room that seems to be a place for gathering or a meeting, I can help but look at it with familiarity.
I once had this kind of meeting room where people I trust will meet and discuss certain topics and issues.
Yet, the people I called for here for some quite time now seem to be still not here.
The chairs on a circular table are empty. There is dust everywhere, meaning that this room wasn used or cleaned for such a long time.
Come on, at least maintain your kingdom clean.
”Taurel… I thought you said you already called the people of this council. Did you follow my words correctly? ”
”Yes, your Majesty. I told the same words you said. Important matters that involve around the kingdom. I want every council member to come. ”
”And what? ”
This girl is clueless as hell.
”Where are they now? ”
”Who are you talking about, Your Majesty. ”
”The council members…? Hasn a kingdom on this world always have one? ”
Taurel nodded before answering,
”They quit a long time. Hmm, most of them. So far, I think they
e only two people left here at this… council meeting. I thought you would have known them, Your Majesty. ”
Thats too low for a council meeting.
”And, who are these two people? ”
”These are— ”
Right before she could even answer my question, the door of the room opened, revealing two people entering inside.
One male that had a physique of a fat man while the other was also another man but had a normal physique.
”Its been a long time since you called a council meeting, your Majesty. Im surprised, ”
”Even me, Poliver. I thought it was a joke at first, knowing it was the kings servant had told us about. It would be treason if the lady had just used the kings name to do some kind of prank but it seems it is all false, seeing the king himself here. ”
”Is this the two, Taurel? ” I asked I glanced half of my head to the person at my back.
”Yes, Your Majesty. These two are— ”
”Oh, are we doing some kind of introduction now? Well, how about I do it first? ” The man with a normal physique said with a calm tone before he slightly bow his head.
He paused, ”My name is Poliver Martinez, Your Majesty. It seems like this is a weird introduction, knowing Ive been on your council for quite a time now. Call me, Poliver in short. ”
”Im next then? ” The fat man interrupted as he also slightly bow his head, ”My name is Ned Sanchez, Your Majesty. As you can see, Im a fat man but Im rich. Sure, the two doesn connect together but its something important to me, ”
”Is Ned good? ”
”Yes. Of course. Whatever you like, Your Majesty. ”
”Please. Since you guys are using your names instead of the titles that had been given to you, how about you stop calling me your majesty every time? Its started to annoy me for some reason. ”
Standing up from my chair, I walked toward the two and raised my hand on the level of their chest, ”Just call me Zarus. ”
”That would be disrespectful, Your Majesty, ” Poliver answered sternly, ”Theres no way we would call our king by his own name. ”
”I agree with Poliver, ” Ned replied as he received my handshake, ”But if this is what you wanted and order from you, I would not hesitate to do it. ”
”Then, don . ”
I smile slightly while receiving the same gesture back from Ned.
At first glance, he looked a bit intimidating to others, seeing that he was this large but that is only the first impression.
Removing my hand from Ned, I placed my hand on Poliver and we began to shake our hands.
”Its a bit strange, Your— Kuhum, Zarus. It seems you have changed. ” Poliver commented as he received the handshake.
”What do you mean by that? Im always the same person, ”
”Hmm, could I say this… ” Poliver hummed before he continued, ”Yeah, something definitely change. I think it is the way you spoke. You seem confident which is different from the last time I saw you. ”
He paused, ”Also, the way you stand and walk seems really different. Your back is always slumping which is different now, seeing that you are straight. I know it is weird for me to say this but why I say it? ”
”Care to tell why? ”
Poliver smiled lightly as he replied, ”Youve changed. And Im surprised about it. That is why. ”
”Changed, you say. ”
This guy is good.
”Indeed I am. ”
Poliver turned silent.
We watched each others eyes for a few seconds without us not returning a word.
Its not like we
e giving death glares to each other. It was more like an acknowledgment which who knows what it is.
But it is that sort of feeling we are having.
”Kuhum, you two are shaking your hands far too long. Maybe you guys could stop? ” Ned said as he watches with a questioning face.
The moment Ned said so, we removed our hands as a result. Moving steps back, we began to sit on the available chairs at the table.
”Are you sure you wanted your servant to listen to this meeting? ” Ned asked as he look at Taurel.
”You don need to worry. We can start. ”
”Hmm, all right. ” Ned answered respectfully before he replied, ”So what is this meeting all about? You just said in the letter that an important matter will have to be discussed. Then, what are these matters? ”
”I did sure to tell you that it is the matter that involves the kingdom, right? The kingdom we are currently living. ”
”What is it? ”
”The kingdom is almost on its downfall. I think it is beyond saving now but I could resolve everything if I have the resources. ”
”And calling us here has something to do with the solution you had in mind. ”
The two waited for me to speak, looking in my direction with curious gazes. As if they were expecting something from me which is kind of surprising.
I can help but think about Zaruss opinion about these two people at the council meeting.
”I want everything sold from this castle. ”
”Everything that would be invaluable to me. Those good-looking glass, chandeliers, expensive clothes, and pieces of stuff. I want them sold to the people who wanted them the most. ”
”Yes. Its basically selling everything this castle had. ”
Ned can help but put a frown on his face as he voiced out, ”Are you sure you wanted to do this, Zarus? Everything your family and their family before that had built would be… sold off. ”
It wasn mine in the first place so who would care?
With that thought in mind, I answered, ”I know this is a risky scheme but gambling at this time where the kingdom is almost collapsing, its either win or lose it all. ”
Pausing, I looked at Ned, ”You said that you are a rich man, right? I want you to give me at least a place where the sale will be held. Hmm, an auction if you say it. ”
”How about just ask money to me? I told you every time that I am your fathers friend. Theres no need to be indebted about everything when Im serving the child of a friend, who is now a king. ” Ned replied.
”My decision is final. ”
Flatly answering Ned, I looked at the other person in the council and said, ”How about you? I didn know whats your specialty. May I ask what is it? ”
Poliver smiled lightly and answered, ”I have many connections. ”
That would be enough.
”Thats great. I think that would be perfect for this time. ”
”As you wish. I know what will be my job here. ”
”Good. That would be all for this meeting. ”
I was also planning on doing many things today but the important one is already done. With this meeting coming to an end, the three of us bid farewell to each other.
Ned first left the room with Poliver being the second and I was only alone in the room with Taurel on my side.
”What would you like to eat, your Majesty? ”
”Kuhum, when we
e alone, just call also call me Zarus. I wouldn want to hear excuses from you about it being called disrespectful. I think it is started to annoy me, ”
”Well… if you say so your—Kuhum, Zarus. ”
”Thats good. Hmm, just buy something on the outside. ”
”Ok, Ill be leaving then, ”
”Make sure it is freshly cooked. ”
Taurel gives a slight nod before she began walking outside the room.
The moment the door closed, I lay my back on the chair while letting out a heavy sigh.
Picking up something from my pocket, I began to read the notes that the prince had left in the notebook he had given at Taurel.
