“Welcome young emperor . ”
Sitting lazily and looking down at the young man with a bossy attitude . Afterall he failed to persuade Runamiria to lower the height so he was lookig imposing .
My neck is tired looking down .
“Haha . . The 24th generation of Gozman empire emperor, Harold . My name is Guardian Dragon God of Sloth . ”
It was enough to scared the hell out of Harold . Direct gaze from above is pressuring him .
“The first emperor of Gozman empire was my ally . Those who have his blood is also my al-ugh . . ”
I bite my own tongue . It’s Runamiria fault, she said “Please speak with dignity that won’t put a shame on the name of Dragon God . ”
“Ha ha . . Thank you for patronizing me . ”
“Umm . . Well, you have done a great job for reaching my throne . It was done in half a day earlier than your successor . ”
Actualy it’s a big deal . He reached my throne so quick . I was hoping to get a quick nap first . However it was a simple barrier to make them think like me . Lazy, sloth, it can’t be broken by a regular person .
If not for the first Gozman emperor I will send him back right now .
If it was anyone else, because I was ordered not to kill anyone, I will throw them out .
However he come for a coronation ordeal . The test for diligence of the human was enough .
“Alright . . Now, you have completed the coronation first step . Please return to the empire . ”
However when I said that, Runamiria enters the hall . “What are you doing Runamiria? ”
” Guardian-sama . . I was just . (how can I leave him alone with a man in a room) . ”
” Whatever . Anyway you have completed your ordeal . You should left this cave as soon as you can because if you stay too long there will be a harm to the body . Please return . . ”
” Please wait . . I want to ask the Sloth God . ” ” Hm . . What is it? ”
Is he trying to ask me about how to lead a country? My hobby in previous life is sleeping . I don’t know anything about ruling a country .
” Sloth-sama . . In your mind, what is the perfect king like? ” ” The perfect king? ”
” Yes . My father Garandia was blessed by you with valor . Unparalleled talent in governing and brings development to the emlire . However I was far from him . How can I be a good king? ”
Oh no . When did I gives the previous emperor a blessing?
” I confess that I was weak . If I become the emleror, the Empire will declining . I couldn’t lead people, how can I lead a country?”
Aah . . I remember someone is saying the same thing . “Hahahahahaha… . ”
” Sloth-sama? ”
” Forgive me . It was funny that someone once asked me the same thing . ” ” Someone asked the same thing? ”
” 500 years ago . There is no empire, only countless war to reign in supremacy . A farmer come to me and said: “I want to end this war” . ”
“How come a mere farmer asking the Guardian God such thing? ”
Oh, emperor-kun show a surprised face . It was natural . A farmer break into my shrine . For the emperor-kun who gone trough the same test . He must be shocked .
” Of course I refused . As a Guardian God, I only solved problem and shouldn’t be biased towards the people . ”
Hearing my words Runamiria just nods .
It was a true story, at least half of it . We Guardian Dragon God can’t sided with human . If we help someone, many others will ask for our help too . Then it will be troublesome .
” However it was true that it wi be better if the war is ended . ” ” So? Did that farmer become the emperor? ”
In my previous life in Japan, there is a farmer Toyotomi Hideyoshi that becomes a lord . Some famous figure lineage is coming from a farmer family .
” The farmer was surlrised whrn I tell him this . The one who wanted to stop it is him . So he should be the one who stop it . ”
Emperor-kun is looking at me with a strained face .
” The farmer start to gather allies and united the continent . His name is Orlando, Gozman empire first emperor . You are not worthy? Yes . However if you reached my shrine, you should realized your own determination . The ideal king is something for you to decide . ”
“I, Harold Gozman, sorry for saying something nonsense earlier . ”
When I was cleaning the mana stream I also make some mistakes . Is there really a perfect being such as an ideal king?
” Listen to your heart . If you’re lost, ask around . If you’re wrong there’s a time to correct it . You can only keep moving forward . ”
Alright . . I think that was a grand speech .
” Yes! ”
The emperor-kun was crying in gratitude .
” guardian-sama . It is time to send him back . ”
” That’s right . . Harold Gozman, I gice you my blessing as the 24th emperor . You can now return . ”
” Yes! ”
Emperor-kun gives a bow then went back with a face brimming with confidence .
” Runamiria, that should do it right? ” ” Yes Guardian-sama . . ”
It was tiring to keep my head high . I immediately thrkw my body down on the bed .
May jaw and tongue was cramped because of speaking some word that I don’t usually use . I opem and close it several times to stretch it .
500 years ago when Orlando asked the same thing, I was surprised that he becomes the emperor . However because of him, now the crowning
ceremony includes coming to my shrine . It just add more trouble for me than helping him uniting the continent . Talking formally exhausted me .
“Thank you for your hard work Guardian-sama . ”
An appreciation from Runamiria gives me some energy . ” No problem . ”
” It is a problem to let a human enter your shrine but it was amusing to see the awe inspiring Guardian-sama when giving advice . Oh such a dilemma . ”
Runamiria then show me her usual smile . ———–
” Your majesty, the prince has come out . ”
” Harold? Hahaha . ” Garandia was surprised to see his son has finished the ordeal in less than a day .
” It seemed you have finished your audience with Sloth-sama . ” ” Yes, He also gives me a wonderful advice . ”
” What kind of advice? ”
” The ideal king . ”
Garandia was confused with Harold’s answer but he noticed his son’s air is changed .
” Now, let’s crown you as the 24th generation emperor when we get back . ”
Then they leave to head back to the empire .
Harold from now on will be burdened with a great responsibility .
Thousands of people fate is now rest in his hand .
” I am Harold Gozman . The 24th emperor of Gozman empire . We will continue to move forward . Please be my power and support me . ”
” long live the emperor! ”
On that day a new emperor was born in Gozman empire . He listened to advice from the people . He carefully make a decision . With the diligence of Asuraddo people, the empire was developed .
