Chapter 751: Alliance in Crisis 1

After saving the Volga Republic from the crisis, Luke and his party moved to Navarre Duchy right away.

The people of Navarre who had already fled to Veron Mountains were still struggling against the Undead by relying on the rough mountain terrain, however, the construction of the large magic circle didn’t move ahead.

For a small nation, they lacked the skills in magic engineering and 7th circle wizards were hard to find in their region.

In addition, they didn’t have any Hero class Gigants which could be used instead of highest grade magic stones.

“Can’t Symphonia or the Holy Empire support us?”

When Henry III cried, Luke sighed.

Actually, the Navarre Duchy didn’t really lack much in number when compared to the small land they had.

The problem was that he had mobilized more Gigants when attacking the Baroque Empire.

And it was done with the intent of receiving at least a little more land once the post-war was done, and that was the reason why they didn’t have enough power to defend themselves.

‘Even in such a situation, he isn’t calling back the Gigant troops he sent…’

Henry III had said that calling for his Gigants troops all of sudden would be trouble, however, Luke thought that there might be another reason for that answer.

Yet, Luke tried to think for a solution.

If it turned out that Henry III was the same as James II of the Castia Kingdom, Luke wouldn’t have the motivation to stand in the Continental Alliance.

In any case, Luke supported him with manpower and the supplies necessary for the construction of the magic circle, while closely monitoring the Navarre Duchy.

It was all in order to not let things like the Castia one, happened again, the misuse of the magic circle.

No force of the Navarre Duchy showed any suspicious movement and were all letting Luke take the lead.

Thanks to that, the work for purifying the Undead proceeded without any damage.

The 1 million Undead army which invaded the Navarre Duchy were able to escape from the poison and return back as humans.

“Thank you, Holy Pope! Majesty Luke! I will never forget the grace shown on us!”

Henry III bowed and thanked Luke and Reina for saving his nation from the crisis.

But that wasn’t the end, Henry sighed and continued.

“Thanks to the two of you, the great crisis passed, but it is blinding to get over the aftereffects of the war. In addition, how am I supposed to feed the 1 million Libiya refugees who have turned back to humans…”

Henry III rubbed his hands and looked eagerly at Luke and Reina.

His nature to openly request support irritated Luke.

‘This man, he is still sucking from us. Is he any better than that Castia King?’

It seemed like he was trying to not lose any money, but he did want to save his people.

Moreover, it wasn’t easy for a nation’s ruler to show such a sloppy appearance in front of others.

“I will try to help the Navarre.”

When Reina agreed to Henry III’s request, Luke nodded.

“We will send aid and food from the Kingdom of Irea to Navarre. However, if it comes to my ears that the aid materials are being used incorrectly, it won’t end well.”

“Th-that won’t happen!”

Henry answered with shaking eyes as he saw Luke’s gaze on him.

Luke’s eyes were beyond cold and eerie, almost like the eyes of the Devil King.

Once the problems of the allies were done, Luke went for the Holy Empire and not Symphonia.

It was to have some relaxing time with Reina, who was exhausted from continuously exerting the Spirit Power and Karen who was tired from commanding the large magic circle construction and relay tower.

“I plan to stay here for a week.”

After arriving at the Holy Palace, Luke’s words made Reina’s eyes bright.

“You mean, you want to stay with me for a week?”

“I do. The two of us are a married couple, but due to the circumstances, we were in a mess. I hope to take a break and for us to go out on a date.”

“Huhu, that sounds nice.”

Reina’s face turned red.

It wasn’t like she didn’t want to spend the time with Luke.

But, the situations of the continent and their secret relationship—she always ended up being thankful to just have an occasional visit.

Besides, in recent years the number of women who were yearning for her husband’s love had increased.

She even thought of making some concessions for the prosperity of the Symphonia royal family, but she was troubled by it.

But when Luke himself said that he wanted to spend some time with her, she couldn’t help but smile.

“Mom, aren’t you happy to go on a date with dad?”

Karen, who was next to her, teased Reina.

“Well, it is nice. Once Karen grows up and has someone who loves you, you will understand your mom’s heart.”
