Chapter 123: Who is the Mastermind?

 After looking at the letter for a while, His Majesty the King handed it to the Prime Minister. The Prime Minister looked at the letter with concern. He thought for a moment.

“Hmm, an advanced strength recovery potion and a strong antidote? Both are very valuable magic potions. But these two can already be made by the royal potion-master.”

“I see. I am relieved to hear that. I thought I would have to teach you how to make it."

 His Majesty the King exhaled. The Prime Minister smiled wryly. Apparently, His Majesty the King thought that the royal magic pharmacist might not be able to make an advanced recovery potion and a strong antidote. I hadn’t thought of that.

“I don’t know if we have all the necessary ingredients, but it should be possible to make a panacea.”

“Well, I will have it made as soon as possible. By the way, Julius, are you interested in working here as a royal magic pharmacist?”

 What? As a Royal  pharmacist? I had never thought about it. But that would mean that I would be hired directly by the government , right? If that were the case, even if I improved the magic potion, I wouldn’t be able to spread it around the world. And the actual methods used by royal magic potions masters to make their potions are not publicly available.

 If highly effective and easy-to-drink magic potions were produced only in Japan, they could be used as a diplomatic card. I think that’s not quite what I have in mind. I want everyone in the world to be able to use magic potions.

“I appreciate the offer, but I’m still a child, so I’d like to make a decision after I graduate from …… school.”

"I see. I understand. I will wait until then.”

 He seemed to have been convinced somehow. I’ll have to think of something before then. Should I study in another country, go on a training trip, or is there something else I can do?

 As I was thinking about this, the prime minister began to talk about the incident. I wonder if it’s okay for me to listen to this kind of talk. Perhaps that’s what this Secret room is for?

“This time, it seems that it was the Lazar Empire of the neighboring continent that used the dastardly technique of poisoning.”

“Lazar Empire…… how did you know?”

  Father groaned. I had never heard of this name before, but he seemed to know something about it. Is he on bad terms with this country?

“The poison that was used was unique. According to our research, it is a rare poison that can only be found in certain places in the Lazar Empire. So they didn’t think there was a magic potion that could nullify it.”

“Is that what the perpetrators told you?”

“Yes, that’s right. The perpetrator was one of the tasters. It seems that he had been in this country as a poison taster for 20 years for this day. He laughed and said that this would be the end of this country.

 Hmmm, my father groaned. If he had said, “This is the end of this country,” he was planning to make something happen with the death of His Majesty the King, wasn’t he? But since His Majesty the King was still alive and well, the attempt ended in failure. I suppose that’s what I’m saying.

“What about the movements of other countries?”

 The Prime Minister shook his head from side to side. I guess there were none. I see.  It was never announced that something had happened to His Majesty the King. The other party probably couldn’t make a move either.

“As I recall, the Lazar Empire has had relations with the neighboring Kingdom of Lund Al, didn’t they?”

“That’s right, Maximilian. But there is no proof of this. I am inclined to believe that it is irrelevant.”

 His Majesty the King said this with his eyes closed and a deep crease between his brows. According to what I learned from my teacher, the Kingdom of Spencer, where the Margrave Heine family are located, should not have had any countries that are clearly hostile to it at present. It is also in good standing with its neighbor, the Kingdom of Lund Al 

 By any chance, were they trying to tear apart the relationship between the Kingdom of Spencer and the Kingdom of Lund Al? Or, if something happened to the Kingdom of Spencer, was the Kingdom of Lund Al to invade? Hmmm, I don’t know, there is too little information.

“We are currently investigating the connection to the Lazar Empire. The only reason I bring this up is because I wanted to alert you, the margrave of the Heine territory.”

“From the bottom of my heart, I’m sorry”

 Fortunately or unfortunately, the  Heine territory is included in the territories bordering the Kingdom of Lund Al. And among the territories, it has the largest area and the greatest military strength. It is only natural that they rely on us. This is it. It is no longer possible for father to leave the territory as he has done in the past.

 Well, if we can make it through this year without incident, brother Alex will be father’s assistant from next year. If that happens, we will be able to gather information and maintain noble relations in the royal capital and other territories without any problems.

 I am inclined to think that the poisoning incident may have been aimed not only at my grandmother, but also at my grandfather. Even though It has not yet been decided that the Kingdom of Lund Al is an enemy.

“I'm counting on you, Maximilian. And as for Julius's reward, I award him the honorary Order of the Potions Master."

“Thank you, sir.”

 What is this medal? I don’t know, but I bowed to him anyway. You must not refuse what His Majesty the King gives you. This is the cardinal rule of his subjects.

“Originally, we would hold a grand ceremony to bestow it, but that is not possible this time. I am sorry, but you must accept it here.”

“Thank you for your consideration.”

 The Prime Minister pulled out a box from nowhere. Inside was a golden medal with an emerald green ribbon. father urged me to stand beside His Majesty the King.

 His Majesty the King placed the medal on my left breast.

“Now Julius won’t be breaking any laws if he makes magic potions. I hope you will continue to work hard for this country.”

“Yes, Your Majesty. Of course.”

 I bowed deeply together with father. It seems that with this medal, I will be able to make magic potions as much as I want.

 Huh, maybe this means I don't need to go to the academy anymore, right?
