Chapter 0338 Intermission – Emigration
The King’s office in the Royal Castle, the capital of the Kingdom of Knightley.
“It’s been a long time, Roman.”
“Oh please, we’re old friends. No need for that.”
As Hero Roman was about to greet the king, Abel stopped him.
“Lovely to meet you, Nadia-dono. I am King Abel I of the Kingdom of Knightley.”
“It is a pleasure to meet you, Your Majesty. My name is Nadia. Thank you for allowing us to settle here.”
Nadia bowed her head.
Roman the Hero and Nadia the Demon Lord.
Abel accepted the emigration of the two to the Kingdom.
“Don’t mention it. It is only natural that I should accept a recommendation from the premier duke of my Kingdom.”
“I see, so Ryo has become the premier duke.”
Roman was frankly surprised to find that Ryo, with whom he had once fought alongside, had risen to a higher position than he had imagined.
Not to mention the fact that the adventurer Abel had become the king.
“So… I thought I’d ask how you’d like your new lives in the Kingdom to look like, as well as your wishes.”
As Abel said that, he looked at Marquis Heinlein at his side.
“Yes, Your Majesty. You could be nobles, commoners, or some other special status, they are all possible. But for the time being, I think it would be best not to disclose your status as a Hero yet.”
Marquis Heinlein replied that they could choose to be anything.
“If possible, I’d rather we’re not made nobles…. The fiefdom aside, ruling over subjects is a bit…. Both Nadia and I come from villages, so we are good at growing wheat.”
Roman expressed his wishes, albeit modestly.
“Hmmm. What do you think, Marquis Heinlein?”
“Then, how about a wealthy farmer from the south? In Rune City…the outskirts to be precise, as Your Majesty knows, Rune is also home to many farmers living on the outskirts. One of them was a fairly large wheat-farming household, but the couple died one after another, and the heir is now a member of the Royal Knights, so the house and land are on the market. The Kingdom will finance the purchase, so… how about that?”
“…I seem to remember hearing something similar before.”
Abel tilted his head and asked Marquis Heinlein.
Roman and Nadia looked at each other and both nodded.
“That would be perfect.”
Roman answered decisively.
“No wait, hold on a minute…. Marquis Heinlein, just to clarify, who are the neighbors, or… the territory next to that house?”
Abel seemed to be bugged about something.
“Right, the neighbor is about five hundred meters away, so you don’t need to worry about it… but the person living there is a water-attribute magician.”
“I knew it! It’s right next door to Ryo’s house!”
Marquis Heinlein answered nonchalantly, and Abel banged the desk as he responded.
“Eh? Ryo’s house?”
Roman was surprised.
“That’s right. The Duke of Rondo, Ryo Mihara, lives next door. Well, he is currently in the Western Countries, and even if he is not, he is in the royal capital more often than not… He also has his fiefdom and other things, so he hasn’t been back to his home in Rune much lately.”
Marquis Heinlein paused and continued.
“Well, Rune City is one of the most stable and safe cities in the Kingdom. It is certainly a good place to settle.”
Roman and Nadia nodded and said.
“Please, we would very much like to stay there.”
