Tome of Blood - Chapter 181: -31-As expected of the Earl!
Chapter 181-31-As expected of the Earl!
“Your Excellency, Count Castel, I haven’t seen you for many years.”
Viscount Remisio gave Charlotte a slight salute, looked at the slim girl and smiled:
“I didn’t expect that after so many years, you are now the same as your mother, Mrs. Anne… Well, you are beautiful.”
Why every time someone wants to politely praise her for growing up, they finally change their words tactfully after glancing at her height? !
Isn’t it just that she is a little smaller in size and looks a little juvenile!
I should have known that now, when I hung on the cross, I shouldn’t have taken away the power of the old hag. Even if I become a vampire, I have to wait to develop and develop!
Hearing Viscount Remisio’s euphemistic praise, Charlotte was full of remorse.
On the other side, the senior manager of the mining workshop was completely panicked:
“Master Remisio, is this an agreement with us…”
“What are you still doing in a daze, why don’t you hurry up and take this sinner who slandered the nobles of the kingdom?”
Viscount Remisio glanced at the soldiers with dissatisfaction, and shouted.
Following his orders, the soldiers of the Kingdom brutally sealed the mouth of the senior manager of the mining workshop and twisted him down.
Charlotte followed the terrified senior officer and disappeared into the army, while Viscount Remisio saluted again:
“Sorry, Earl Castel, I didn’t know that this guy dared to attack the nobles of the kingdom before, and I was deceived by him to think that he really represented the Castel family.”
“Eh… I just heard that Kodd, the chief manager of the mining workshop, was executed by you for betraying the family?”
Charlotte withdrew her gaze from following the senior officer, smiled slightly, and said:
“Cord is not a member of the Castel family. He is a spy inserted by some pretenders. Over the years, he has killed the miners, stolen Castel’s mithril, and lied about the depletion of the mithril mine. He has committed a heinous crime and has already been punished.”
Charlotte’s words were not loud.
However, a new commotion was soon aroused among the crowd:
“What? Is the disappearance of the miner related to Kodd’s affairs?”
“Bah! These stewards… really have a bad conscience!”
“Mithril mine…isn’t it exhausted?”
“I knew it! Even the mine veins on the royal side are fine, how could something go wrong on Castel’s side?”
Viscount Remisio also twitched from the corner of his eyes:
“Oh? So… Castel’s mithril mines haven’t run out?”
Charlotte nodded lightly.
Viscount Remisio breathed a sigh of relief:
“This is really great. The mine veins have always been integrated. You don’t know. After the news of the depletion of the Castel family’s mithril mine reached the capital, it is said that His Majesty the King has been worried about the entire Castel’s mithril mine. There will always be problems, and now the truth is revealed, it is finally a false alarm.”
“Yeah, it was a false alarm…”
Charlotte sighed slightly, showing sobs:
“I didn’t expect that after my Castel family left the territory for so many years, there would be so many moths. They not only lied to me, but even dared to attack me.”
“Do something to you?!”
Viscount Remisio seemed taken aback:
“Who is so courageous? How dare to attack the nobles of the kingdom?”
Charlotte shook her head and sighed:
“It has been many days ago. I was ambushed before entering the earldom. Fortunately, there was a strong guard at that time, and I was able to turn defeat into victory…”
As she spoke, she was dissatisfied and said:
“Now that I think about it, the people who ambushed me back then probably had something to do with these traitors. They just didn’t want me to go back to Castelland. For this reason, they even poured dirty water on His Royal Highness Philip. hateful!”
“His Royal Highness the Third Prince?”
After hearing a certain name, Viscount Remisio visibly perked up.
Obviously he has a ferocious face, but his pricked ears and excited expression make him look like a village aunt who has heard gossip.
“Yes, they actually slandered His Royal Highness Philip, saying that His Highness Philip attacked me…”
Charlotte said angrily.
After finishing speaking, she sighed and stopped talking:
“It’s all in the past, but it makes you laugh.”
Viscount Remisio, however, was obviously aroused by Charlotte’s unfinished words, and he obviously straightened up to listen to gossip.
It’s just that Charlotte doesn’t want to talk more. Although he is uncomfortable with curiosity, he can’t force it.
“Eh…Your Excellency Earl, now that the truth has been revealed, I won’t delay your handling of family affairs here. I will visit you after the dust settles.”
Viscount Remisio scratched his head and said.
“Naturally, thank you for arriving in time today and suppressing these Xiaoxiao for me.”
Charlotte said with a smile.
“Haha, if you need someone, you can send someone to contact me at any time. I will be stationed outside Caiyin City. It is still possible to help suppress a few traitors.”
Viscount Remisio laughed loudly.
After finishing speaking, he once again performed a noble courtesy to Charlotte, and hurried away with the brightly equipped kingdom army.
Charlotte looked away from the departing kingdom soldiers, and looked at the mine guards in front of him.
This time, the mine guards did not hesitate.
Led by two senior officers, hundreds of guards knelt down on one knee towards Charlotte, and a large area was formed when they knelt. The voice was quite loud in the night:
“I have seen the Earl!”
At the same time, among the mining stewards gathered here, some sporadic stewards knelt down along with the guards:
“I have seen the Earl!”
At this moment, no one has any objections to Charlotte’s true identity.
Charlotte’s gaze swept over the kneeling crowd, and finally landed on the many mining stewards whose faces were pale, kept retreating, and even began to hide in the crowd.
Her eyes turned cold, and she issued the first order after taking back control of the mine troop:
“The guards obey the order and take down the traitors of these families!”
Following Charlotte’s order, the mine guards immediately moved into action. At a speed that was unknown how many times faster than before, one after another arrested the stewards who were trying to escape, and escorted them to the summer camp under the eyes of everyone. In front of Lott.
Looking around, there were more than thirty people.
The mine stewards were ashen-faced, terrified and desperate, and many of them peed their pants and cried for mercy.
Charlotte gave them a cold look:
“Press it down and lock it up!”
The guards saluted respectfully and escorted all the stewards down, which aroused applause from the surrounding miners.
On weekdays, it is not uncommon for mine stewards to oppress and bully the miners. At this time, seeing these high-ranking stewards suffer, the miners are naturally happy.
Not to mention, they even learned just now that the disappearance of the miners in the mine was also related to these betrayed stewards.
After dealing with these obviously problematic workshop stewards, Charlotte looked around and looked at the remaining workshop stewards:
“Which of you… has the highest status here?”
“Back… back to the Earl, yes, it’s me.”
An elderly steward took a trembling step forward.
“What’s your name?”
“I… My name is Hank, Hank de Leon-Castel, the senior manager of the mining workshop, in charge of logistics.”
The old steward replied respectfully.
Leon Castel? He is actually a relative of Baron Sharon?
Charlotte raised an eyebrow.
She pondered slightly, and said:
“The management of the Castel Mining Workshop has seriously neglected their duties. From today onwards, all workshop managers will be relieved of their duties. The affairs of the mining workshop will be temporarily taken care of by my housekeeper Sebastian.”
As she spoke, she glanced at the old werewolf Logan in the crowd again, and said:
“The werewolf miner Logan has made great contributions in helping the family suppress the rebellion in this incident. In view of his rich experience in mine work, he is now promoted to the senior director of the workshop to assist Sebas in managing the affairs of the workshop.”
As soon as these words came out, everyone’s eyes were on the old werewolf.
Surprise, envy, bewilderment, excitement…all kinds of emotions are in it.
For a while, many miners regretted that they were not the one who yelled “Protect the Earl”, and they were even more envious of the old werewolf Logan’s luck like shit.
The old werewolf was slightly taken aback, as if he didn’t expect such a big surprise to hit him suddenly, and he was a little dizzy.
But he reacted quickly, his face was flushed, and he bowed to Charlotte excitedly:
“Logan… obey orders! Logan… must live up to the Earl’s expectations!”
“As for you…”
Charlotte’s eyes fell on the remaining workshop stewards again:
“Temporarily suspend the job for inspection to see the aftermath. During the suspension period, you need to accept the family investigation. After passing the investigation, you can continue to assist Sebastian and Logan in handling the affairs of the workshop. The deadline is three months. Those who pass the test can continue to serve as stewards .”
“Steward Hank, you will be the general manager of Dai Gui. At the same time, you also need to assist Sebastian and Logan to familiarize themselves with the work of the workshop as soon as possible during the suspension period. If you are qualified, you can continue to serve as a senior steward in the workshop. ”
The old manager trembled slightly, and saluted respectfully:
Charlotte nodded slightly, glanced at the remaining stewards, and raised her voice slightly:
“Do you… have any objections?”
The stewards looked at each other and lowered their heads slightly.
However, a different voice sounded soon:
“I…I have an objection!”
Charlotte looked over and found that the objection was another young steward.
“What objection do you have?”
Charlotte squinted her eyes and asked.
“The appointment of the steward of the Castel Mining Workshop needs to be decided by the nobles’ meeting! Even if you are the Earl, you can’t do it arbitrarily!”
The steward said boldly.
Charlotte raised her eyebrows and asked:
“What’s your name?”
“I’m Gerson de Legles!”
The young steward straightened his back and said.
“Is the Viscount Legris family assigned to the steward of the mine…”
The next moment, she looked cold and said:
“I am doing extraordinary things in extraordinary times. I have reason to believe that there was a betrayal of the noble family in this mine incident, so I will take back the control of the mine for the time being.”
“Mr. Gerson, are you opposing me on behalf of the Legris family? Or is it that the Legris family is also behind the deception of me this time?”
Saying that, Charlotte’s eyes flickered slightly, and the prestige technique was released on its own.
Feeling the huge pressure that was forced upon him at that moment, the young steward obviously became a little nervous:
He hesitated for a while, sweating profusely, and finally sat back obediently.
Charlotte continued to look around, and all the remaining stewards dared not look at her again.
“This matter is settled, Sebastian, I want you to sort out the bills of the mining workshop within three days, dig out all the dirty things, and at the same time come up with a salary that can continue to work in the workshop.” Stewardship list.”
“In addition, count the list of miners who have been missing in the silver mine for so many years, and send pensions to their families in the name of the Castel family.”
“At your command.”
Sebas bowed his head slightly, and saluted Charlotte respectfully and gracefully.
After explaining to Sebastian, Charlotte looked at the people around him again:
“From tomorrow onwards, the Castel Mine will be closed for three days for rectification. If you have any feedback on the situation, or you need to report any shady things about the mining workshop, you can report directly to Sebastian. reward!”
After hearing what Charlotte said, the eyes of the miners lit up. All eyes unconsciously swept over the old werewolf Logan, and their breathing became heavy.
“Okay, this matter is over, everyone go home and rest.”
Charlotte glanced at the miners present and said.
After speaking, she was the first to get up and left the mine under the **** of the guards.
Looking at Charlotte’s gradually receding figure, the miners were in awe:
“Although the Earl is young, he is quite powerful!”
“And, the Earl is so pretty…”
“You are worthy of being the heir of the Castel family, and you are worthy of being the saint of the holy royal court!”
“You… are you really the Earl of Castel?”
In front of the office of the mining workshop, the little werewolf Noah looked at Charlotte who had changed his face, and couldn’t help but muster up the courage to ask after all.
Even though he knew in his heart that this was true, he felt as if he was still in a dream.
“Isn’t it like?”
“Like…ah no…not like…ah no…”
Noah stuttered and was a little at a loss.
Charlotte stopped joking, but looked into his eyes and said:
“Noah, today we have an adventure in the mine, you must keep it a secret, you know?”
As she spoke, the brilliance in her eyes flowed, and a red light appeared faintly.
The little werewolf looked dazed:
“Secret… What needs to be kept secret?”
Charlotte smiled slightly:
“It’s nothing, let’s go home.”
She has already erased part of the memory of the other party about the mine.
Of course, it’s mainly the memory of her own shot.
After sending the little werewolf Noah away, Charlotte entered the office of the workshop.
As soon as she entered the office of the workshop manager, Sebastian, who followed her in, whispered:
“Master, that Viscount Remisio… took that senior officer away.”
Charlotte didn’t seem surprised, but nodded slightly:
“Master, do you know Viscount Remisio? I think he seems to be involved in some things in the workshop, and he may have cooperated with Quixote, but you don’t seem to care… What’s going on?”
Sebas asked curiously.
Charlotte sat down in the steward’s chair, and Sebastian immediately offered the goblet and sweet milk.
Charlotte explained while sipping sweet milk:
“I should have met Viscount Remisio a few times when I was a child. I don’t have a clear impression of this, but it was mentioned in the family’s information.”
“Viscount Remisio is a member of the Kingdom’s military who has been stationed in the mine for a long time. My father also put a lot of effort into him and sorted out a lot of materials. I also previewed before coming to the territory.”
“He is a traditional silver moon nobleman with a loving wife and a happy family. Although he has a surly personality, he has a bottom line and is afraid of trouble.”
“The Remisio Viscounty where he is located is not rich because it has been devastated by the Star-Moon War all year round, and it can even be called poor…”
“In order to raise funds for the development of the territory, he often takes some lucrative jobs, and he took the initiative to guard the Castel Silver Mine. It also means this. Many years ago, my father gave him a lot of convenience, which can be regarded as No deep friendship.”
“He may indeed be involved in some things in the workshop, but I am afraid that at most it is money, and he will not break with the Castel family for this.”
“I’m afraid I’m a little guilty of taking that senior manager away, presumably he must have done some dirty work.”
“Perhaps he once promised something, but after seeing you and me and assessing the gains and losses, I am afraid that he will forget his promise to those traitors.”
Sebastian suddenly realized:
However, he quickly frowned again:
“But in my opinion, such a person…can’t have a deep friendship.”
“You don’t need to be close friends, this kind of person is actually a fool, just use it.”
And speaking, she smiled again:
“For example… I was thinking about how to trip up the third prince. Isn’t this an opportunity?”
Sebas’s heart moved slightly.
Charlotte glanced at him and said with a smile:
“According to family records, Viscount Remisio is a staunch supporter of the second prince.”
At the same time, the Kingdom military station at the Castel Silver Mine.
As soon as Viscount Remisio entered the barracks, he hurriedly summoned his own soldiers, and ordered with bright eyes:
“Quick, go and find out, what happened to the little Earl of Castel on his way to the territory!”
