The Overlord of Blood and Iron - Chapter 275
hapter 275: A Victory From Lucking Out
Not too long after, Vilhelm gave an order to the Gullveig Alliance through the voice amplificator in a depressed voice .
-All troops, fall back! Fall back!
Ao Xin shouted at Vilhelm’s sudden orders .
“Why are you ordering them to fall back!? What are you thinking!?”
Ao Xin was being reasonable . Right now, they were at the advantage . If they fought for just 10 more minutes at this rate, the Deathwin fortress would become the Gullveig Alliance’s .
However, Vilhelm replied in a depressed voice again .
“Why would you order our troops to…”
“The Pentagon has been taken over . ”
“Yeah, so the Pentagon has been taken over but first… w-what?!”
Ao Xin screeched .
“The P-Pentagon… has… been taken over? By who? Alex Rothschild?”
“Of course not . ”
“Andrei Ivanovich… that damned bastard!”
“It’s not him either . ”
“Then who could get into the heart of our alliance, the Pentagon…?”
“Kang Chul-In . ”
“ . . . !”
“He snuck in… and took over it . My wife and my son… even the sovereigns of our alliance are being held hostage . ”
Ao Xin couldn’t trust what Vilhelm said . How could he? It was a scenario that he couldn’t believe even if he wanted to .
“S-So if we fall back it’ll be solved?”
“That would’ve been nice . ”
Vilhelm bit his lip .
“We have to pay compensation for the dead and the injured, and 200% of their war costs . ”
“ . . . !”
“On top of that, we have to announce our loss publicly, and for the next 72 hours, we’re not allowed to attack the Valhalla soldiers . ”
“You didn’t… already sign…”
“Did I have any other option?”
Vilhelm asked in a sharp voice .
“Kang Chul-In said that he would release the Lords after cutting one arm off from each . ”
“He couldn’t have…”
“If we don’t stop our attack now…”
“ . . . ”
“It’s the end of us . We’ll have to turn our allies into our enemies, not just Kang Chul-In . Can you handle that?”
Of course he couldn’t . Even if Vilhelm and Ao Xin worked together, they wouldn’t last against the Lords if they all allied themselves . They say that one hand couldn’t handle ten hands .
“So… in the end…”
Ao Xin’s body trembled .
“Defeat . ”
Vilhelm said Ao Xin’s words for him .
“It’s a complete loss… while we were hitting Kang Chul-In’s body… Kang Chul-In… stabbed our heart . ”
It was an accurate expression . Kang Chul-In’s impulsive decision to take over the Pentagon had cut off the bones of his enemies!
“In this way… a war that we almost won… argh…!”
Ao Xin couldn’t let go of the Deathwin fortress easily .
-All forces, fall back!
Vilhelm felt 100% what Ao Xin was feeling as he ordered the Gullveig soldiers to retreat . There was nothing they could do . This war was the defeat of the Gullveig Alliance .
Meanwhile, at the same time .
“Wow! His Majesty!”
Kwak Jung was astonished looking at the retreating enemies .
“Kya… this is why I serve his Majesty . He’s an item… n-no… he’s a great item… yeah, a great item . ”
He was muttering weird things to himself .
-Ah, ah! Mic test, mic test . Mm~! This is nice .
Kwak Jung lifted the magic voice amplificator in the air .
The Valhalla soldiers that had been confused at the sudden retreat of their enemies looked up at Kwak Jung on the control top .
-We won .
Kwak Jung announced their victory .
“W-What’s our commander saying?”
“ . . . ?”
“Uh… can someone explain…”
The confusion increased .
“Mm… I see everyone’s not able to believe it . Well, I guess that’s fair… I only believed it after his Majesty said so, too . Huhu…”
Kwak Jung was also confused, but if Kang Chul-In said so, it was true .
Since when did Kang Chul-In weigh options and contemplate over pros and cons? Kang Chul-In couldn’t be understood by logic . Something good was bound to come out of him at some point .
Kwak Jung shouted at the Valhalla soldiers again .
-I’ll say this again, but this war is our victory! Look! Our enemies are falling back!
To this, some soldiers shouted out .
“What are you talking about!?”
-His Majesty has taken over the command room of our enemies, the Pentagon .
The impact of that sentence was extraordinary .
“Wow! Ah, our king~!”
“So that’s why… the enemies are moving back!”
The Valhalla soldiers all understood why the Gullveig soldiers were moving back, and the Deathwin fortress was filled with cheers .
“Hurrah for his Majesty Kang Chul-In!”
“Hurrah for the great Valhalla Kingdom!”
“His Majesty is the best!”
“His Majesty was watching us all this time!”
“We won, we won!”
It was a war they had barely ended, but the victory was the Valhalla Kingdom’s since Kang Chul-In had taken over the heart of the Pentagon .
“Hehe, how nice!”
Kwak Jung giggled .
“Winning at the end is indeed the best… but still… this isn’t enough… yes . ”
However, he wasn’t 100% satisfied .
And so he gave orders .
“Call all the generals to the strategy room . ”
The deputy began to run frantically on Kwak Jung’s orders .
“Hehe, so it was 72 hours, huh?”
Kwak Jung made an evil smile .
Ten minutes later .
“You’ve worked hard . ”
Kwak Jung praised the Valhalla generals .
“But… there’s still a chance to contribute… I don’t know who to send…”
As soon as he finished speaking, the generals all volunteered to go, raising their hands .
“This Drakan will go!”
“Trust this Amur over that lizard!”
“Give me a chance!”
“Ahem! This oldie will go!”
“I’ll do it this time…!”
“No, I’ll go!”
They were fitting of Kang Chul-In’s subordinates .
“Whew… good, very good!”
Kwak Jung laughed satisfactorily .
“His Majesty will be very glad to see everyone this responsive . So this mission…”
Kwak Jung’s words faded away .
The sounds of people swallowing could be heard throughout the room . They wanted to be chosen by Kwak Jung .
“I’ll specially… allow everyone to participate this time! That’s fair, right? Hahahaha~!”
However, Kwak Jung was sly .
T-That loser .
I fell for it!
I knew he was going to do this .
Let’s see how far you go, Kwak Jung .
The generals of the Valhalla soldiers all glared at Kwak Jung . Kwak Jung was always asking for it .
“I’ll brief you on the strategy . ”
Not knowing that he had asked to be beaten up, Kwak Jung continued to speak .
“The time that our enemies are prevented from fighting is about 3 days, which is 72 hours . Currently, about 10 minutes have passed . . . so we have about 71 hours and 49 minutes left . We can’t let this golden time go to waste! So we’ll…”
Kwak Jung pointed at a spot on the map .
“We’ll take over this port city, Venetz . ”
The generals of Laputa were shocked .
“Tactician Kwak’s insight is incredible!”
“You’re surely the brain of our kingdom!”
It was an expected response .
72 hours was an ample amount of time to attack the Gullveig Alliance soldiers .
Also, the one who had control over the port city Venetz could have the center of the ‘Hartum River,’ so it would be tremendously advantageous .
Furthermore, Venetz could be used as a strategic point to get into the heart of Pangaea, the heart of the Esmeralda territory .
“There will be resistance . They only agreed to not attacking first on the ceasefire negotiation; there wasn’t any condition not to defend themselves . So in 72 hours, we must completely take over Venetz .
Kwak Jung emphasized the “completely . ”
Podolski raised his hand to ask a question .
“Even if we take it over in 72 hours, our enemies might attack Venetz after that…”
“It won’t be taken from us . ”
Kwak Jung firmly shook his head .
“Pardon? I don’t understand…”
“After 72 hours, there will be a ceasefire for 3 months . That means that after Venetz is taken over, it will be our territory, so the Gullveig Alliance won’t be able to shoot a single arrow at us . ”
It was a flawless plan from someone who said he had an electronic brain .
“You’re so smart!”
The Valhalla generals were once again astonished by Kwak Jung’s plan .
“Exactly 5 thousand, no more or less . Five thousand of our best soldiers and everyone here will take part in this . What are you doing? We have 71 hours and 45 minutes left!”
Kwak Jung rushed them and the generals quickly ran out of the strategy room .
“Let’s go capture Venetz!”
Alone in the strategy room, Kwak Jung sighed .
He was tired .
“If we can succeed in taking over Venetz, it’ll be advantageous for us with the Esmeralda territory…”
It was then .
Kwak Jung stumbled, and plop! He landed on the table with a nose bleed . From all the work and mana exertion, he had died .
. . .
No, he was just sleeping .
At the same time . . .
While Kang Chul-In caused a mess in the Pentagon, Vilhelm retreated his troops, and Kwak Jung made the plans to take over Venetz, the door of the elementary school’s principal opened .
“Goodbye~! Little Arshelly~!”
The principal watched Arshelly out the door .
Arshelly’s voice didn’t have any strength in it .
“You can’t forget what I promised, okay? Do you understand?”
“Okay . . . ”
“ . . . ”
The principal continued to repeatedly ask her, and Arshelly turned away to return to her classroom with heavy footsteps .
Arshelly looked like she was about to cry as she walked down the hall .
A tear that looked similar to morning dew dripped down her cheek .
“Why are you crying?”
Just then, a woman who had been passing by stopped Arshelly to ask her a question .
“M-Mo… I-I mean, Teacher!?”
“Why is our pretty little Arhselly crying!”
Arshelly jumped into her teacher, Han Ye-Sun’s, arms .
