I Became The Childhood Friend of the Obsessive Second Male Lead - Chapter 203
What kind of ‘justice’ is that?
The thing that Rieta was curious about, BB answered right away.
“Ah, the accuser got a reward so he could pay for his daughter’s medicine. That’s a good thing.”
She never thought that she would dare judge his justice anyway.
She didn’t deserve it.
“So, the villagers have been arrested. But the lord could not punish these people for their sins.”
“Yes, they didn’t do anything wrong.”
When Rieta answered, the gatherer laughed again.
“Why didn’t they do anything wrong? They disobey the king’s command.”
“Listen. The lord has plans too.”
“Yes. That’s why he wants to be the king’s father-in-law.”
Perhaps he was planning to take the girl the king wanted as his adopted daughter.
He knew that as long as he had the favor of the king, he would also have great power.
“So, the lord makes a proposal to the young lady. ‘If you seduce the king, I will spare their lives.’”
BB mimicked the voice of a villain in a play and slyly lit his eyes.
“What do you think she would have done? That girl.”
When he asked, Rieta clenched her clothes.
As long as the lives of her loved ones were at stake, she would have nodded her head.
No matter how much she hates the king.
“She will…… do that.”
“But the lord spared their ‘lives’. He would have them locked up deep in the castle, though.”
“What? But that is against the promise.”
“He said he would spare their lives, but he didn’t say that he would send them back to the village, so it’s not like he had broken any promise.”
“Wow, what a real villain. Why would a good lord do such a thing?”
“…… Then again.”
Rieta somehow felt as if her breathing got choked.
However, this was a reality for someone living in the Kingdom of Liz.
She could not look away.
“When things don’t go according to the will of the lord, he can threaten the young lady again.”
BB clapped his hands.
“You grew up precious, so I thought you would only know the fairy tale ending.”
Rieta laughed bitterly at his words.
Of course, this is not an entirely wrong assessment.
Compared to the people in Liz, she certainly lived in a fairy tale world.
Under the perfect roof, she never met the clouds on a cloudy day.
“The answer, absolutely correct. Good job.”
He stretched out his arm to stroke Rieta’s head.
But his hand twitched slightly at the terrible gaze staring right from the side.
“I thought you were just gentle and smooth. Well.”
In the end, BB, who had no choice but to take his hand, slumped back into his seat.
“Well, anyway, this is just an example. Something similar is happening in so many places that it could be unspecified.”
“…… the people’s.”
Rieta lowered her head. She thought she was shameless.
“The livelihood or something like that.”
“Of course it’s not good. It can’t be good.”
“Even if they farm, they lose everything and there is nothing to eat, and if they don’t, there is nothing to eat, so people came out saying they would rather not farm it.”
While Rieta sighed, the terrible story continued.
“But our King of Liz did not lose and found a simple solution to this problem!”
His bubbly voice was enough to plunge her into a deeper anxiety.
The King of Liz’s head, as Lietta remembers, was like a flower garden, so he must have come up with a solution that was obviously nonsense.
Perhaps Noel had the same thought, he sighed slightly.
“To hit the people who have nothing to give to the country. If he does that, they will start farming even if they are afraid.”
It worked pretty well at first.
If they see their neighbor ended up as a corpse right now, they have no choice but to move even if they are afraid.
“Oh, but a thief has appeared. They worked hard on the farm and harvested it, but someone took it. How can this happen! But, worry not!”
BB lifted one of his fingers and waved in a flicking movement. With a bright smile.
“As long as it’s dedicated to the King of Liz, it doesn’t matter if it’s this way or that. Ah, how sincere are they? They pay taxes even if they steal!”
BB looked thrilled with emotion as he raised both his hands high.
But when Rieta and Noel just stared at him, he was a little embarrassed, so he quietly put his arms down.
“Hmm, hmm, that’s it. Any more questions?”
“…… the subjects.”
Rieta’s voice was almost crawling.
She seemed to be convinced that a bad story would come too.
“Oh, I don’t know about that. I’m just a gatherer around town.”
Rieta nodded her head.
“Still, there was a story I heard from the soldiers every time I crossed the border. You see.”
