oman wanted to rectify that fact as he began his new life.
‘My name is Roman Dmitry.’
The eldest son of the Dmitry family, Roman Dmitry.
Even though he was up against Barco, he showed everyone that he was a man who could utter such rude remarks to them.
Benson—He was just an excuse.
From the moment Roman entered Barco’s banquet, he was looking for an opportunity to prove his worth even after he had won the favor of the surrounding nobles through conversation.
That was his intention when he had accepted to go to the banquet.
And, in a situation that arose from his opponent’s mistakes, Roman chuckled and attacked Benson like a predator who had finally cornered his prey.
His bloody teeth were exposed to Benson.
Seeing Roman’s predator-like attitude, Anthony Barco could not hide his embarrassment.
Roman’s enmity and the gazes around him; in his heart, he wanted to fight.
However, he knew that if he did, his mistake could not be undone through any means.
It was not an exaggeration to say that Roman had changed due to their conversation in the private room, and their family relations could be disrupted due to Roman’s personal resentment.
What if that happens? One-sidedly, it is definitely Barco’s loss.
With a bit of patience and perseverance, he could get his hands on Lawrence’s fertile lands and Flora Lawrence.
Thus, he didn’t think it was necessary to upset Dmitry and ruin his grand plans.
Little by little, Anthony Barco fell into self-rationalization.
Nevertheless, he struggled to ignore the gazes around him, thinking that he had no choice but to choose one option.
Eventually, he said, “…Thinking about it, you are correct.
If Dmitry’s knight had insulted me in front of others and touched a member of the Barco family, I would have punished him similarly.
This is absolutely our fault.”
He took a step back.
After bending his pride, he struggled to add meaningless excuses, saying he would have punished him similarly if he had been in the same situation.
And that was the end of it.
Roman smiled and pulled Benson’s head forward, “You think so?”
And when Benson’s eyes, tinged with fear, turned to him, Roman forced his head to the floor and said, “Show some respect.”
At those words, Benson squeezed his eyes shut.
In the end, he was carried away on a stretcher.
He was beaten so severely that his face had become bloody, and fragments of his teeth and blood flowed where he initially was.
With that, Roman’s aim of coming to the banquet had been achieved.
He wiped the blood off his hands with his handkerchief and left the party with Chris and Kevin.
On the way back to Dmitry, Kevin, who was silently following Roman, said with a face as if he had committed treason, “…Sorry.
Because of me, my liege had to suffer embarrassment.” He truly felt miserable.
If only he had been a knight like Chris, Barco’s knights would not have dared to argue with him, and Roman would not have been involved in useless things.
Chris also added, “I’m sorry as well.
Even while seeing Kevin being beaten, and them insulting Dmitry, I did not respond.
If I am to be punished for this, I will accept that punishment and never let this happen again in the future.”
Chris had power.
Still, he kept calm for Roman.
If he had known that Roman would be angry enough to be hostile to Barco, he would have drawn his sword and fought from the beginning.
Roman stopped walking.
Then, he turned to his men and spoke calmly, “You guys made the best choice for me.
It must have been difficult to be patient but thank you for being calm.”
Today, neither of them was responsible.
From anyone’s perspective, the Barco family had power, and Roman Dmitry had no power or authority to treat them badly.
If Roman was unprepared and had an argument with the Barco family, he might have faced trouble in front of everyone.
Chris and Kevin knew that.
They acknowledged Roman’s strength, but his position as Dmitry’s successor and authority was unstable, so his self-esteem would have suffered injuries if they had taken any different actions.
However, that didn’t mean their response was perfect either.
“Being mistreated, of course, leads to anger.
Your choice did avoid the worst, but it wasn’t the choice I wanted you to make.
In the future, remember how to behave when someone spits in your face.
If you do that, nothing like today will ever happen again.
At least in the region of North-East in the kingdom of Cairo, there will be no one who will dare to disrespect the Dmitry family.”
While living at the bottom of the cave in his original life, Baek Joong-hyuk was powerless.
So, he used his tools and smashed everyone’s boss’s head with a stone, making him the new king of the 12 children of the Heavenly Demon.
However, the situation right now was different from back then.
You can do anything when you don’t have power, but when you take on power, you risk the life of your comrades as well.
And for that, I knew what actions to take at what time.
When it was not the right time, he smiled, and when the time was right, even if others judged him to be reckless, he cut off his opponent’s head without hesitation.
In that process, he crossed numerous life-or-death situations.
Chris and Kevin’s judgment was in their best interests, but if they had known “what actions to take at what time,” they wouldn’t have stood still today.
Just like the situation with the Barco family and even the Blood Fang, if Dmitry’s strength was accurately grasped, even if they crossed the line, there would be no problem.
“Even if it is something you have to endure, keep your opponent’s face clearly in your eyes.
There is a difference between simply being patient and bowing helplessly.
You must not lose the intent of crushing your opponent at the right time in your eyes.
I’m not the type of person who can tolerate someone being higher than me.
You will also have to get used to it—if you want to follow me, you need to place everyone else in this world under your feet.”
At that moment, Chris and Kevin thought—Roman Dmitry is a man who will lead a reigning life.
And in order to become a person suitable for him, they must strive not to remain in the realm of everyone else’s common sense and thoughts.
Roman walked ahead; Chris and Kevin followed him.
Looking at Roman’s reliable back, the two men’s footsteps felt were more firm, and they felt a stronger trust in him than they had ever felt.
The Heavenly Demon—The power that dominated all of Murim was now, little by little, taking shape here in the kingdom of Cairo.
