Volume 3: Chapter 171 – The Proclamation of a New Country (m/3)
The Goblin King needed another day to fully conquer the western capital after Gowen Ranid died.
As he waited for the detached force’s arrival, the Goblin King gathered the key players in the war and the people who were left behind.
After Gowen Ranid’s head was hung on the city gates, the people who ran too late had no choice but to stay.
The Goblin King looked down at the crowd of people gathered at the square.
Some screamed upon seeing the Goblin King’s great stature, while others glared at him hatefully.
The goblin army surrounded the humans.
“Brethren! Members of the alliance! Our enemy, the feudal lord of this land, has died, and we have survived!”
The pressure and volume behind that voice was so great that some of the humans, who were hearing his voice for the first time, actually fell to the ground.
Contrast to them, the goblins clanged their weapon and cheered, praising the king.
“Let us spare a moment of silence for those who have died!”
The goblins who have been making merry suddenly went quiet and bowed their heads. They waited for the king’s next words.
“To the valiant heroes who perished!”
To the valiant heroes who perished!!
The goblins, the demihumans, and the elves all spoke after the king. Each of them thought of their own kin, as they waited for the king’s next words.
“Lift your heads, my brethren! The sorrow has passed. Now, we shall cry for glory! For we have triumphed! This glory is the first of many to come! So cry, my brethren! Cry out in the name of victory!”
To our victory!
The commander goblins raised up their weapons, while the other goblins cried out.
They raised their weapons up high as if they sought to pierce the heavens, and the rays of the sun reflected upon them.
“Humans,” the Goblin King spoke to the humans. “We have invaded you, and now, we stand before you as your rulers. You have lost, and we have won. But hear my words, sons of man, for I promise you peace. So long as you do not rebel against us, we will not kill you.”
The goblins and the demihumans glanced at each other when they heard the king’s proclamation. They thought the king had gathered the humans to sacrifice them in the name of vengeance, yet all of the sudden, he was saying he would spare them.
Even the humans were shocked. Never did they think that a goblin would utter such words. They looked on at the black goblin with a mix of confusion and fear.
The Goblin King puffed out his chest. “In the name of the king, I hereby proclaim the birth of a new country!”
In the midst of the deafening silence, the Goblin King suddenly proclaimed the founding of a new country.
A country ruled by non-humans was bound to be full of troubles. It didn’t matter how small the territory was. To the humans, such an act was equal to challenging their right, and to challenge them was no different from a declaration of war.
The one who broke the silence was Gi Za Zakuend.
“O king! Our great king! The king who shall guide us!”
Like a dam cut open, the moment Gi Za spoke, the rest of the goblins cried out.
O king! Our great king! The king who shall guide us!
The Goblin King felt the one-eyed snake throb on his right hand. It was as if it was laughing as it throbbed then returned to silence. The warmth the Goblin King felt from his right hand was like that of the spring sun’s rays.
There were some who agreed with the king and some who did not, but regardless, the goblins all cried out feverously as they praised the king. They cried out so desperately that it seemed as if their throats were parched.
The king’s proclamation was a challenge to the humans, but that was exactly what they wanted.
For where the king points is where they shall go, for to them – who had no gods – the king himself was god.
Gi Za Zakuend was the first to cry out, but now, he was as quiet as a mute as he looked around him with a cold gaze.
There were even some among the humans who could be seen kneeling.
The adherents of the king, the people who hesitated, the humans, the demihumans, the elves… Gi Za looked over them all with a cold gaze.
Level has risen.
