Leglos came back to the tent, and Lenion, who saw his brother’s troubled expression, inclined his neck .
“What’s the matter, Aniki?” (Lenion)
“Hm? Well, Yuhito appears to be absent . ” (Leglos)
Yuhito was one of the brilliant minds of 【Gabranth Capital – Passion】 . He was the creator of the 《Nameless Bracelet》 and the one who worked out the method for the 《Binding Technique》 .
“Haa? You mean that Mad Rascal?” (Lenion)
“Yes, after all, he was supposed to be deployed too . ” (Leglos)
“Why are you looking for that rascal? ” (Lenion)
“You see, I thought he might devise a method to cross over to the 『Evila』 continent . ” (Leglos)
“Ah, I see . I’m sure he will unexpectedly appear sooner or later since it’s that guy we’re talking about . ” (Lenion)
“I agree . He is, after all, elusive . ” (Leglos)
Both of them did not seem to mind Yuhito’s disappearance at all, as that guy had always showed up suddenly . Leglos who was concerned, was fed up with Yuhito doing things at his own pace in such a situation .
“By the way, how’s father?” (Lenion)
“It seems he is going around, visiting the tents of the others . He is calling out to the people who have suffered injuries during the war . ” (Leglos)
“Fu~un, he is as companion-loving as ever” (Lenion)
“That is our strong point after all . ” (Leglos)
While they stood for a while in their place, a soldier hurriedly entered the tent . The soldier had a rather flustered appearance as his breathing was heavy and rugged .
When they enquired the reason for the soldier’s frantic appearance, he said that, the 『Evila』had sent them a letter .
After the two mutually gazed at each other for an instant, they ran out to the Beast King, Leowald in a hurry .
“Oh, you guys came . ” (Leowald)
For some reason, the two felt a sense of incongruity in his tone . Leowald’s expression seemed a little loose, and had a happy atmosphere around him as he spoke those words .
“Father, is that the letter sent by them?” (Leglos)
“Ah, Read it . Something interesting is written in it” (Leowald)
Leglos read the letter that was handed over to him, “What in the world is this?!”, he instinctively raised his voice .
Naturally, Lenion who was seemingly interested in the contents of that letter, requested an explanation from Leglos . And after the explanation was done, he too had an expression of astonishment .
First, the contents demanded a non-aggression treaty in exchange for liberating the captives . Naturally, this part was not that surprising as Leowald had expected this to happen .
The problem was, when the demand requested was not accepted .
The letter stated that supposing the demand was not accepted, they will conclude the war with a fight . Although this was a little surprising as it came from the naive Demon Lord, it was the fight itself that took their breaths away .
The letter was written as,
『Currently, your military forces are most likely scarce . If this fighttowards one’s annihilation were to continue, both sides would receive huge damage, and this is something that both countries willnot benefit from . If circumstances were to allow, we do not wish to recklessly kill soldiers or the people, and so we should necessarily choose a more appropriate way, which the two concerned parties deem convincing, to fight this war . Previously, you said something like, “Defeat us by showing us your power” . if that is what you want, then we will show it to you . We will truly show you our power . We will have a confrontation between our strongest war potentials to decide the winner and loser among us . We will hand over to your side, the right to decide the specifications of the fight . Naturally, the number of figures should match . We will also liberate your comrades, if you acknowledge this . However, this isour greatest compromise . If you refuse this demand, we will not hesitate to annihilate you with the whole power of 『Evila』 . Of course, if the war ends without fighting, I believe that is for the best of both countries . I will be expecting a favourable response』
Everyone in the place, who heard Leglos’ explanation about the letter, were flabbergasted . The content of the letter appeared to be reasonable . This is because, they too share some consentient on the matter at hand .
From what they understood from the letter, if they were to wage a war, then it would surely become a fight towards one’s annihilation . All those who were there now, could, without a doubt, imagine the death toll in such a situation
However, if they were to fight out between them, through the method suggested by the letter, the soldiers would not be needlessly sacrificed . Moreover, they were given the rights to choose the specifications for the fight . This was obviously to their side’s advantage .
No matter how they thought of it, the 『Evila』 seemed to be at a really disadvantageous position . They could have easily crushed the remaining Gabranth army, let alone slaughter the captives .
Nevertheless, why?, everyone inclined their necks in confusion .
“Gahahahaha! They really got me there! They have totally pulled off something strange here! Gahahaha!” (Leowald)
Leowald who found it interesting, laughed from the bottom of his heart .
“F-Father! This is not the time to be laughing! How are we going to respond to this?!” (Leglos)
He answered Leglos’ question while his face carried a smile .
“No matter how we think of it, this is quite a convenient negotiation!” (Leowald)
“But, this may be a trap!” (Leglos)
“No, that is not possible . ” (Leowald)
“W-Why is it?” (Leglos)
“Even if they didn’t request such a thing, they could win this war easily by fighting us with their current forces . No matter how we think about it, we are the ones on the unfavorable side . ” (Leowald)
What’s more, the 『Humas』 had already withdrawn, they were evidently overwhelmed by the enemy .
“Besides, I told you that the Demon Lord was naive, right? This letter probably don’t have any trace of deceit . I may be saying this, but this is all just based from intuition!”
“I-Intuition huh……” (Leglos)
Leglos who was astonished, exhaled .
“Moreover, a confrontation between the highest war potentials of both sides……fufu, It’s been a long time since my heart has pounded like this, merely from such a suggestion!” (Leowald)
At that time, a hand grabbed onto Leglos’ shoulder with a pop!
“Aniki, no matter what you say, it’s useless” (Lenion)
It was Lenion, who had stopped Leglos, however, he too was grinning, happily .
“Isn’t this a bit more interesting? Although I think that a warrior should confront the enemy directly, to settle this war, this way, is very intriguing . ” (Lenion)
When Leglos saw that kind of facial expression, he hung his head in submission . He lightly shook his in resignation at the two war loving people beside him .
“Gahaha! Don’t make such a face Leglos! Look at them . ” (Leowald)
Leowald jerked his chin, prompting Leglos to change his line of sight . What they saw there was Barid and Putis of the 《Three Warriors》 bowing down deeply .
“Y-You guys…… . ” (Leglos)
“We will do our best to bring us victory . ” (Barid)
Putis nodded in agreement with Barid’s word . The two seemed exceptionally motivated . .
“……… haa, I understand . You really are going to accept their demands?” (Leglos)
“Yes, besides, if it’s such a fight like this, then that guy will probably participate as well . ” (Leowald)
Leowald had his hands on his chin as he gladly smiled in anticipation .
“That guy?” (Leglos)
“Well, there might be some who will object this fight, but we have a chance for victory within our grasp . ” (Leowald)
“ “ “ “Ooooooooooo! “ “ “ “ (Gabranth Soldiers)
The soldiers raised their arms as they shouted in eagerness .
“All the soldiers in here! Believe in us and leave the rest to us!” (Leowald)
“ “ “ “Ooooooooooo! “ “ “ “ (Gabranth Soldiers)
Thus the curtain to an unprecedented decisive way of war between the 『Gabranth』 and 『Evila』 was unveiled, clashing against each other, using their best forces .
