“Giorg, what the hell are you doing!!”
I greeted Ghazel’s piercing voice with a cold smile.
“W-What! What is that attitude!!“
Sensing my feeling of mockery, Ghazel exploded in anger.
“Cain, Ryde ……, seize Ghazel and Armada.”
The two butlers who followed Ghazel and Armada immediately carried out my order. In less than three seconds, they were both pinned down on the floor.
“LET GO OF ME!! WHAT ARE YOU DOING!!”
“YOU!! DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM!!”
Of course, the two who were pinned down cursed at the two butlers who were holding them down.
Ghazel and Amanda looked surprised at the two butlers’ shouting. They had thought that Cain and Ryde were loyal butlers.
“Ghazel, Armada ……, I now condemn both of you.”
They looked surprised at my words, but in the next moment, their expressions changed to anger.
“DON’T F**K WITH ME! DO YOU KNOW WHAT YOU’RE DOING TO THIS MARQUIS OF ZAFING!”
“GIORG!! DO YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING!!”
I naturally ignored the curses of the two and continued talking.
“The charges are the assassination on Elphil , the former Marquis of Zafing, and the usurpation on the Zafing family.”
My words sent a tremor through the reception room. I smirked at the scene and turned my gaze to them.
The people who met my gaze shuddered. They knew I was not bluffing, as they already knew I had the information on the movement of the money. And of course, they know that they can’t escape it either.
“Former Marquis Ghazel ……, you conspired with your wife Armada to assassinate the former Marquis of Zafing, Elphil.
“Wha, STOP THIS BULLSHIT! I WOULD NEVER DO THAT!!”
“HE IS RIGHT!! WHERE IS YOUR PROOF!!”
At my words, they both shut their mouths.
“When have I ever given you permission to speak? Don’t take advantage of me, you little piece of s**t.”
“Wha….you, to your father”
“That’s why I told you to shut up. You are a stupid man to interrupt the Marquis of Zafing.”
I stood up and strolled over to Ghazel. On the way, I picked up a sword that was hanging on the wall for display. The scabbard is still attached.
Sensing my intentions, Cain grabbed Ghazel’s head and forcibly pulled him up.
I nodded in satisfaction and struck him with the sword in my hand.
There was a strange sound and Ghazel’s face turned to the side at high speed. Of course, I took it easy enough, but only my men would know that I took it easy as blood and shattered teeth spilled from Ghazel’s mouth.
Armada’s voice rang out in fear.
“Do you understand what position you are in? Then let’s continue.”
I say so, and this time he doesn’t try to interrupt me.
“I have evidence that you stocked the poison. The type of poison is Ekair. It’s an odorless, tasteless, slow-acting poison. The merchant who you bought it from was Al-Gargo. …… Do you have any comments or corrections so far?”
“The name of the maid who poisoned my mother is Anna-Karuzes. She was Armada’s maid, wasn’t she? She called it a meeting with my mother and poisoned her. As I said before, Ekair is a slow-acting poison. The effects of the poison do not manifest itselves on the spot. It took five days for the effects of the poison to kick in.”
Ghazel and Armada paled as they met my gaze.
” Al-Gargo has already been captured. He’s still alive. It won’t be long, though.”
“Of course, he’s an accomplice to the assassination of the Marquis ……. I can’t just let him go scot-free, can I? Oh, …… you haven’t seen Anna-Karuzes lately, right?”
“T-that’s….Don’t tell me”
“Yeah, I got a little carried away with the interrogation.”
“It was an unfortunate accident, what a shame.”
Armada gave a short cry of terror.
“Why are you afraid? You poisoned my mother, remember? What’s the big deal if one of your servants had a unfortunate accident?”
“P-PLEASE WAIT!! GIORG!!
Again I struck Ghazel in the face with my sword. Blood and teeth splattered again.
“You really are a dumb person, you know that? Can’t you learn with a little pain? Answer only what I ask. Don’t irritate me too much. I’m afraid I might accidentally apply the wrong amount of pressure.”
