Five days after my audience with the King, all the people I called had assembled in the main hall of my mansion. My servants were in attendance, of course, but the 29 spies I employed were also present. They have recently been dubbed the Dark Serpent Corps. There were 100 members from my territory’s militia as well.
“Listen up! His Majesty has given me an Royal Decree! It has become clear that certain aristocratic families are planning on assaulting this house! But they don’t plan to stop there, they also want to kidnap my fiancée, Her Royal Highness Princess Sonaris! This is high treason against the Kingdom!
The Dark Serpent Corps is to scout and gather information from the identified rebel houses. You will be working with the intelligence operatives of the Count Abbott house as well as the Kingdom’s Intelligence Department!
The 100 members of the Viper militia are to guard the mansion and support the Dark Serpent Corps as needed!
Keep this in mind, we must have hard evidence! We cannot just rampage around without evidence of wrongdoing! We must make the fools regret their idiotic actions!
Let them know that they provoked a den of vipers!” Pat declares
My forces broke up to follow their orders. Some went to hide in the capital, others went to spy on various noblemen’s estates. My mansion is now guarded by a sizable force of militia members in green military uniforms, watching 24 hours a day for suspicious events.
Of course, I’m on the move. For these sorts of things, I’m the most skilled.
