He did feel that they had brought in a lot of food to the imperial residence, but it was a greater quantity than he expected.


“Wait, you there, did you just say that this was sent by the House of Count Stuart? This is not the aid from the Kingdom?“


The Shogun questioned Melsa warily.

The aid from the state and private aid were two different matters.

Have greedy nobles in the Kingdom gotten wind of the information about Imperial Japan’s magic stones even though we only hinted about it a little…? Is that the reason why the man sitting next to the interpreter lady, who was said to be a diplomat, appears very arrogant? Oliver’s attitude weighed on the Shogun’s mind.
