“No.
That is indeed enough, Your Majesty.
It is a relief to hear your reply.”

“But still,” Pale said without breaking her cold mask.
“It really makes one curious just what kind of person could charm Your Majesty so.”

“…”

As the king silently turned away from her gaze, Pale smiled a bittersweet smile in her mind, while keeping her face as cold as ever.

“I shall send a proclamation to the army.
They are to march east to rescue the king’s beloved.”

“…Are you making fun of me?”

“No.
I’m dead serious.”

For a moment, a monster and a person stared at each other.
The one to break the staring contest was none other than the king.

“What do you want?”

“Time.
Only a little.
I know Your Majesty wishes to attack the east, but we are not ready.
Gi Gi-dono being able to buy time was within our expectations, but Gi Ga-dono’s loss was not.”

Seeing Pale bow her head so solemnly, the king had no choice but to sigh and give permission.

When one speaks of a ‘hand of darkness’, the general understanding is that one is pertaining to a killer or an assassin.
Of the clans, the ones who engaged in such jobs include the Shadow of the New Moon and the Dagger of Webrus.
The number of assassins these clans have could be 50 or 100, but the exact number is unknown.

Trying to find out the exact figure is of course the same thing as asking to be killed.

The Valkyria Clan used their connections to gather these assassins and gradually slip them through the Kushain Believers as merchants.
Mixed in with those were those who had received the original mission of causing a disturbance.

Finding the whereabouts of these people after slipping them in was no easy task.
Since these people didn’t know who was out to get them, they will never look or expect reinforcements.

But despite that they will be sure to get the job done.
As for why, that’s because of their personal circumstances.

Vengeance for a close friend.
Salvation for a beloved’s debt.
Pursuit of honor.
There were many reasons.
Whatever the reasons may be, Far was there to watch them as they left.

These were people that she would likely not meet again.

She did not have any obligations to watch them leave, but her conscience would not let her off.

It wasn’t as if the goblins wouldn’t attack them just because these people did not cause a disturbance, but try as they might to prevent a leak, nothing was certain in this world.

As the end of the month of Sheep approached, and the season when the tips of the branches grew was about to leave, a wind blew.
It carried with it yet some heat, but already there was a sign in it of the winter to come.

Approximately one month later, at the end of the month of Moruki, word of the goblins moving came.
Soon after Far gave the orders for her Valkyria to mobilize.
