Chapter 22.1

Visiting The Town And A Magic Stone Store For The First Time


 

 

======

 

At Euro, far away from Ishtalika . A bit before Lloyd reported to Chris and the others .

Here, the heavyweights were discussing the matters with Ishtalika .

 

“To think something like this would happen . ”

 

The one speaking was the leader of Euro, Duke Amour . When he first heard this story, he could only see it as a joke .

This story passed through many people until it finally reached Duke Amour .

 

At first, the diplomacy and trade officer received a letter from someone who claimed to be a merchant from a foreign city . For Euro, to which those were little more than pretty stones, it wasn’t an exaggeration to say this was like someone buying trash from them . So, when someone offered to buy those stones, they were very welcoming .

 

When the deal was getting at its last steps, a message bird’s letter arrived and it said they would be the new contact point from there on, albeit extremely polite . About a year had passed since the last letter saying “please wait some time while the preparations are completed”, from a person from the other party .


 

“Duke Amour . It finally arrived today, Prime Minister Warren’s reply from Ishtalika, shall I read it for you? ”

“If you will . ”

“We, Ishtalika, agree to the amount of the payments and conditions set to this transaction . We will also officially announce this trading partnership between Euro and Ishtalika . We completely acknowledge these two points and have high hopes for the future development of this enterprise . With this said, we would like to move on to a meeting to agree on the terms and other issues such as excavation work…… W-We did it, Duke Amour! ”

“Yeah, it would seem we will get busy from now on, but the most important thing is we got this deal . ”

 

Duke Amour felt greatly relieved .

He never thought he would be in a trading partnership with such a strong country as Ishtalika .

Duke Amour wasn’t stupid, and he was also good at reading the flow of things . Despite that, he had no idea how this deal would end up as .

 

“Hahaha . Thank you for your hard work, Duke Amour . Still, with this, our country will make a lot of money, and we can also borrow the name of Ishtalika . ”

“To think something like this would happen . You truly don’t know what life has in store for you . ”

 

Heim didn’t disclose Olivia’s case, so of course, Euro wasn’t in the knowledge either .

From Euro’s perspective, they only knew the fact that a person from Ishtalika who was investigating the Sea Crystals in the trading city contacted Euro through the Guild after discovering them and that’s how the exchange began .

 

“Then, with this issue settled, there’s only that other matter . ”

“……About Archduke Augusto, isn’t it? ”

 

The Duke’s aides spoke about Archduke Augusto .

The Archduke thought about evacuating Krone in the unlikely scenario that an attack from Ishtalika was to take place .

 

Luckily, it wasn’t impossible to travel to Ishtalika through Euro, so Archduke Augusto prepared money and intended to use this channel to cross the sea .

 

“I have a suggestion . ”

“Let’s hear it . ”

 

A well-dressed noble who was attending the meeting expressed his opinion .

“Archduke Augusto is a heavyweight in the mighty Heim, how would he feel if he were to learn of our dealings with Ishtalika? ”

“Wouldn’t that be dangerous? ”

“Rather, wouldn’t this be a good opportunity to talk about it offhandedly?”

 

What he meant to say was to speak with Archduke Augusto in a way of implying the dealing was set . Something like, ‘Euro is now friends with Ishtalika’ .

But, of course, there were many cautious opinions on it .

 

“……No, I don’t think it’ll be a problem . This has already been acknowledged by Ishtalika, by the Prime Minister Warren-dono . This means we can also speak about our relationship with Ishtalika . Therefore, I don’t think It’ll be a problem . ”

 

Duke Amour said so . It might’ve been a problem if the contents of the deal were still being discussed . But now, official permission from Ishtalika had been granted . Therefore, it was Duke Amour’s opinion that it would not pose a problem .

 

“Certainly, now that you say it, that might be the case . ”

“Umu . Since it’s been officially acknowledged, it won’t be a problem if they know . ”

 

After hearing the words of Duke Amour, the opinions of the other members present began to shift . After all, he was correct, Warren had already given his agreement to the terms . The deal was already in motion, and all that was left were some minor details that would be discussed next .

“Then, what will we do? Will we give a ship for Ishtalika to Archduke Augusto? ”

“But that might be somewhat rude towards Ishtalika . ”

“It’ll be alright . However, I think we will need to consult with them beforehand . It’s the Archduke after all, so I think if a fair price is paid, Ishtalika wouldn’t have a problem . ”

 

The heavyweights exchanged opinions, but eventually, they concluded that they should consult with Ishtalika for the time being .

 

“Archduke Augusto said his granddaughter, Krone-dono, wanted to visit the man in her heart . As expected of Heim……Of and Archduke of Heim, he seems to have acquaintances with nobles of Ishtalika . ”

“Hahaha, that kind of makes me feel a bit envious of him . ”

“Well then, let’s talk with Archduke Augusto . We need to prepare a letter . ”

 

After that, when Archduke Augusto received the news, he was so surprised that his eyes seemed to pop out .

But, as a result of that, he was relieved he managed to secure a safe journey to Ishtalika . First, he wanted to tell Ain to have a word with Krone and with that see if they would accept it .
