Late night ~~
In a room in Volance Palace, a gathering of voices could be heard in heated discussion. The nobles of the various houses ranging from the prestigious Volace family, to the bureaucrats and those managing divine user soldiers had gathered.
They split up and gathered according to their position and status. Their main purpose was to oust the Darkness God Captain. And thus the open meeting started with the discussion of future measures and plans.
“Demanding requests to the princess with an inappropriate social position, even though he has a distinguished military record, he is still dangerous.”
“We had tried the direct approach before and it didn’t work so our next option was to indirectly cause him harm.“
As long as the Darkness God Captain was under the Princess protection, even if the person in question was put under pressure, he didn’t seem to be affected.
Even at the carriage stand, he would give up his position and wait for the next carriage. Sometimes along the hallway when there were people walking pass, he would give way to the other person.
Although he had a non competitive behavior, the princess seems to be getting more friendly with him, causing others to think that he was being humble with a motive. Although the Darkness God Captain avoided ostentation of his status and laughed alongside with the commoners, his reputation only seemed to have increased.
