I did not answer his question.
However, Balpas smirked.
“All this in just a few months. It must be a great power indeed… Hey, Heal. Why don’t we make a deal?”
“Aye. If you let me return to Sanfaris, I’ll send you information about the country. Secrets of the palace. Everything. So, you just have to insure my survival and lifestyle. And when the time comes for you to invade Sanfaris, I can even carry out assassinations for you.”
After seeing the island, Balpas must have realized that there was no way that Sanfaris could defeat us. This was no surprise, after seeing dragons and Chimeras.
“Brother… I have no intention of invading Sanfaris.”
“Liar. Don’t you remember all the hatred and humiliation? You have Chimeras and dragons now… All this power. You can finally get your revenge.”
“It’s not that I don’t resent those who abandoned me. I even want to get even with them. However, I have much more important matters on my mind these days. I have to protect everyone here.”
“Heal… I see. Well, that does sound like you.”
Balpas chuckled to himself. He looked resigned as he opened his mouth again.
“So, what will you do with me then? Now that I’ve seen the inside of this island?”
“I won’t do anything. Well, aside from having someone watch you from now on.”
Upon hearing these words, Balpas let out a sigh of relief.
“I see. Thank you. Well, with someone who has a nose like that around, I won’t do anything.”
Haines puffed out his chest with pride when he heard this.
And so I turned to Haines.
“Haines, good work. Can I rely on you to monitor Balpas?”
“Of course. This one is not to be trusted. My brother and I will deal with him.”
Haines beat on his chest with a smile. ‘It’s been a while since we had something to do!’ he said excitedly to Ashton.
However, just then, the sound of something shattering was heard from the storage house.
