”Huh? ” Alexios didn ’t understand what Victor was getting at.
”The people serve the King, the King does not serve the people. ”
”The King points the way, and it ’s up to him to lead his people to the promised land. ”
”If I were King, I would rule with these principles. ”
”…But if you abandoned your subordinates, wouldn ’t that be the same as betrayal? The King himself betraying his subordinates? ”
”This is correct. ” Victor nodded, and his expression didn ’t change:
”Because of that, I would always make my intentions clear. ”
”I would die for my family, and if the sacrifice of my kingdom and myself was what it took for them to survive. ”
”Then so be it. ”
”… ” Alexios looked at Victor with a shocked look.
’That ’s not the mindset someone your age should have… Just how much did Scathach break him…? ’ ’ Alexios thought for a moment, and soon he understood something:
’She didn ’t break him, she cut him free with her training, awakening the warrior that existed within this man… ’
’But this mentality… ’
’This woman… Is she training him to be a King? Or has he had this disposition from the beginning? ’
Despite having several doubts, Alexios felt satisfied with his deduction, he laughed a little and said:
”You would make a terrible King. ”
”HAHAHAHA~. ” Victor laughed in amusement: ”Indeed, indeed. ”
”Although if I had a kingdom, this hypothetical situation would never come to pass. ” Victor ’s smile widened.
”Oh? Why do you think that. ”
”Because, before a situation like this could manifest, I would ask for help. ” Victor ’s words caught Alexios off guard.
”I would ask for help from my Wives, my Master, my Friends, and from my Maids. ”
”They are capable women; they would definitely think of something. ”
”…You would leave your Kingdoms fate in the hands of other people? ”
”Hmm? Of course. After all, they are not just any random people. They are my Wives, and my beloved Maids. ”
”…. ” If Alexios ’ jaw wasn ’t still connected to his face, it would ’ve impacted the ground. He was very shocked.
”And also, as the saying goes, 7 heads are better than 1. ”
”…I don ’t think the saying went like that… ”
”Really? Meh, who cares? HAHAHAHA~. ”
”…. ” Alexios flashed a small smile when he heard the man ’s laughter.
”Indeed, who cares? ” Alexios laughed, not as hard as Victor, but he did.
”Umu, Umu! It seems you do understand! ” Victor nodded in satisfaction.
A portal appeared, beside them, and soon Natalia appeared, accompanied by Maria.
Seeing her father laughing with Victor as if he found something very funny, her brain stopped working, and she was paralyzed for a few seconds:
’What the fuck? Is Victor ’s madness spreading like a disease? Even to my father! ’
”Umu? ” Victor stopped laughing and looked at the two girls: ”Oh, you came Maria… ”
”Yes. I knew Master needed me, so I immediately stopped my game with the girls and came! ” She spoke with a twinkle in her eye.
”Good. ” Victor nodded in satisfaction, then said, ”Come with me. ”
”Yes, Master. ” Without delay, Maria quickly ran towards Victor and grabbed his arm.
Victor started walking towards the exit. He passed close to Natalia and said:
”Good job. ” This chapter is updated by [. c o m ]
”… ” Natalia displayed a small smile, but when she was about to follow Victor, the man just pat her head lightly, and said:
”Don ’t come with me, it ’s for your own good. ” He smiled kindly.
”… ” His gentle smile caught Natalia off guard.
’That smile with that face is not fair! ’ She complained to herself as she cursed Victor ’s beauty.
Despite being troubled internally, she was also curious why he wouldn ’t let her go with him.
”… ” Looking at this, Alexios couldn ’t help but display a small smile.
’For someone who says he would abandon his Kingdom and subordinates when it reached a critical point… He ’s pretty kind, huh. ’ Alexios knew Victor said that because the room next to this one was just very…
Natalia might be used to killing, but seeing dismembered bodies, and all kinds of torture wasn ’t for her.
A good example of this was that she was feeling sick at the little massacre that Victor caused when he arrived in Japan.
’…He would really make a good King. ’ Alexios thought to himself approvingly. He agreed with Victor ’s mindset that the people served the King, and not the other way round.
Vlad had the same attitude.
But the primary difference between Vlad and Victor was that Victor was willing to trust the people close to him.
And it ’s not like Vlad from the start didn ’t have people he could trust.
His Wives, for example. If he ’d only tried to have a good relationship with them.
Perhaps Nightingale would be even stronger.
After all, all of Vlad ’s Wives were special in some way, and they were all highly capable.
But unfortunately, due to being a millennial man, and a man who practically lived half of his 2000 years sleeping, Vlad ’s mentality was left stranded in the customs of the past.
”Natalia, listen to him. ” Alexios spoke to his daughter when he saw that she was going to question Victor.
”You don ’t want to go into that room. Trust me. ”
”… ” Now Natalia was even more curious, but seeing her father ’s unusually serious look, she decided to give in and listen to the two men.
…Wait, was being treated like a child?
She ’s a grown woman for God ’s sake!
Ignoring her feelings of incongruity, she spoke:
”…. ” Victor smiled and nodded slightly at Alexios.
Alexios smiled too, then turned and went back to his work.
”Come on, Maria. ”
”Yes, Yes! ” Maria was excited.
