When I went to the dining room with Grulf the next morning, Kathe was there waiting.
She looked very happy for some reason. Her wings were moving.
“What is it? You seem to be in a good mood.”
“Yes. I want you to look at this.”
So saying, Kathe spread out a large sheet of paper onto the table.
“What is it?”
“It’s an organization chart for the Ancient Ruins Protection Committee.”
She was a very determined dragon to bother to make such a thing.
I wasn’t sure about Eric, but Goran and I would never have made it.
“Let’s see it then…”
There were several departments with a chairperson who sat at the top.
There were titles and names underneath.
“Wait a minute.”
“What is it?”
“What is it? Why am I the chairperson?”
“Why not? You are perfect for the part.”
“I had thought that you or Eric should do it.”
“But Eric and I are rulers already. It is an alliance between our two countries, so one cannot have more power than the other, can they?”
She was right.
There shouldn’t be a situation where one of them was above the other.
“That being said, I’m also the Grand Duke of the kingdom of Mendilibar. Wouldn’t that give our country the upper hand?”
“But you are a Hero that surpasses boundaries of country or even race. The dragons should not mind.”
“…I don’t know about that.”
“…If you want, I could give you the title of Honorary Wind Dragon Grand Duke…”
“No, I don’t want that.”
Kathe had asked us about personnel the previous day.
And we had said that she could do whatever she wanted.
So it didn’t seem right to dismiss everything she had decided.
If I was going to do that, then I should have spoken up in the beginning.
“I see… So what is this… Chief Advisor Lord Gerberga?”
“The God Fowl. Of course he should be the Chief Advisor.”
Kathe was the General Secretary and Eric was the chief of the Political Bureau.
I didn’t know what it was that they would be doing, but I guess it didn’t matter.
There was also Goran, Chief of the Adventurer Bureau and Philly of the Alchemy Bureau.
“And why is Milka the Secretary General?”
“Because I talked with Milka yesterday and discovered that she is a genius.”
“That’s very keen of you.”
“Yes. And so I had to give her some office.”
Personally, I didn’t even know what the difference between a General Secretary and Secretary General was.
But if this is what Kathe wanted to do, then so be it.
I pretended that I didn’t see Grulf’s mysterious office, which simply read, ‘Wolf.’
