We’ve made it to Marquis Dixon’s mansion. After joining up with Rahal’s unit,
we encountered no more incidents on the way.
I got to witness a moving reunion between Marquis Dixon and his son Kevin.
After that I received various words of gratitude, then a dinner was set up for
myself and the soldiers with the Marquis family. I received further thanks from
the Marquis, after the dinner wrapped, then I was caught by the Marquis while the
rest of the unit left.
“Second Lieutenant Riggsby, do you have a moment?” Marquis Dixon
There’s no way to decline, so I nod.
“Thank you again. Thank you not only for the return of Kevin, but also the two
escorts as well.” Marquis Dixon states as he slightly lower his head.
“I’ve very happy that we were able to rescue your son, we are all grateful
for your kindness during our mission.” Pat
The Marquis rewarded each soldier with a gold coin, and I was given ten coins.
If you turned that into Japanese yen is would be somewhere around 50 million
($625,000) the Marquis spent.
“No, I can’t compare your reward to my son’s life.” Marquis Dixon
Since he’s a Marquis, it shouldn’t be that significant. Plus I’m only a soldierand he shouldn’t have to bow his head to a third son of an insignificant Baronialfamily. This person is humble.
“My son is safe, and I avoided the humiliation of being held to ransom by
bandits. I feel like I’m unable to convey my gratitude. Patrick Riggsby, is
there something you are interested in? A Marquis has a lot of connections.” Marquis Dixon
Can I even take something? I’m under the employ of the Kingdom Army?
“If you can’t think of anything right now, then when you encounter a problem in
the future, feel free to consult me.” Marquis Dixon
