The chamberlain immediately took it to the throne room.
“I have a report! It is from Captain Roberto who guards the eastern seas!”
The king muttered. And so the chamberlain read the report.
“Aye! According to information they heard from an Amolis vessel they were inspecting, Prince Heal is alive and well on the Sheorl Reef!”
Upon hearing these words, the princes and other nobles began to mutter.
They were all surprised that Heal was still alive.
However, the king noticed that the chamberlain’s hands were shaking as he held the paper.
“What is it? Did Roberto really send out a ship with such great haste, just to tell me something so insignificant?”
“N-no…there is more…however, I…”
The king said sternly.
The chamberlain bowed deeply and read the rest of the report.
“Prince Heal…has assumed the title of Emperor of Sheorl…”
The chamberlain continued to relay the information that had come from Berfalt.
How the island had developed greatly and that monsters were living together.
The others in the room could barely understand what they were hearing.
However, after a moment of silence, many of them became very red faced.
“Em-Emperor? And he’s living with monsters?! …This is treason!!”
“That bastard! Does he mean to lead these monsters and get his revenge!?”
Shouts of outrage rose in the air.
Among them, there were some who calmly insisted that there was no way that Heal could have survived on those reefs.
Surely this talk of monsters and a World Tree were just lies.
However, Roberto was a man that could be trusted. And it was argued that he only ever sent information that was reliable.
Others suggested that Heal declaring himself to be Emperor meant little. He could not possibly be a threat to them.
And like this, the argument continued in the throne room.
However, amidst all of this, the king alone seemed to be smiling with pleasure.
