It had been a few weeks since they had become an Imperial Police.
Haru who had been raiding a lot of people had his rank increased a lot of times since he had bribed a lot of people with the money that he had gotten from his raid. His presence had also become a nightmare for some people, but a lot of people were also happy with him since he had given them a lot of money.
Sayo and Ieyasu had enough money for their villages and had decided to go back tomorrow to their villages. They had also decided to stop working as an Imperial Police officer since their minds couldn't handle the pressure from this job. They had seen him a lot of cruelty in this town and they thought that it was better to come back to their villages with a lot of money that they had gotten from their profession.
"Thank you, Haru," Ieyasu said.
"No problem, you have achieved your objection and you can do whatever you want," Haru said.
Ieyasu smiled and said, "I'll go and sleep first. I haven't slept since yesterday." He yawned and went back to his room.
"I'm going to help you," Sayo said.
"You're not tired?" Haru asked.
Sayo shook her head and said, "I know that you're the most tired one."
"I'm not tired, but if you want to help me then I won't stop you," Haru said.
Sayo bit her lips and thought about what to do since she knew that she would go back to her village tomorrow. She looked at Haru and decided to not have any regrets before she left.
In the luxurious room a fat, but powerful man was munching meat on his mouth while hearing the report from his subordinates.
This man is someone who has the most authority after the emperor or he has the most authority since he has made the emperor into his puppet. His name is Honest or the prime minister of the Empire.
Honest looked at the report about Haru who had been given it by his subordinates. "Is this information true?"
Honest nodded and he was quite satisfied with Haru since his pocket had become quite very big. "But Esdeath's husband, huh?" He looked at the picture of Haru and thought that it wouldn't be strange for Esdeath to have an interest in this young man. However, he still had some doubts in his mind. "Isn't he a bit young?"
"General Esdeath might have a preference for a younger man since her personality is quite strong."
Honest nodded since he knew that Esdeath had a very strong personality and probably loved to have a lover that she could control. "He is from the East, right?" He didn't think that Haru was from the Revolutionary Army since Haru was Esdeath's husband and Haru had also caught a number of spies from the Revolutionary Army from his raid making the Capital safer.
"Yes, from the information that we have gotten this young man is coming from the East."
"Young, but full of potential," Honest said and nodded. He also liked the character of Haru who was very ambitious with his career, but he also understood with such a strong wife the pressure on his back was very big. "Is he strong?"
"From our observation that he has only used a gun to fight against his enemy, but his skill with a gun is superb. We don't know whether he has other skills or if there is a high chance that the enemy is too weak that he doesn't use any other skill other than gunmanship."
Honest nodded and said, "Is he a Teigu user?" He thought that it was the most important.
The man shook his head and said, "No, we haven't seen him using any tools similar to a Teigu."
Honest tapped his fat cheek with his fingers and said, "Well, I don't think anyone dares to use Esdeath's name."
Honest's subordinates nodded since they knew how scary was Esdeath.
In the single room, a lot of people gathered around the woman who was sucking a cigarette with a complicated expression.
This place is the hiding place of the assassination group known as Night Raid. This group has been very famous throughout the Capital of the Empire since they have assassinated a number of powerful figures and people with a lot of authority.
Najenda looked at the information about Haru while sucking a cigarette. She threw out the report on the table and said, "This young man is a swindler."
"Are you sure, Boss? I don't think there is anything strange if General Esdeath is falling in love with this young man?" Leone said.
"I hate to admit it, but he is my type," Bulat said.
Najenda shook her head and said, "I don't know what kind of mentality of this young man has to be able to lie that he is Esdeath's husband, but I know Esdeath very well and she doesn't have an interest in romance." She also couldn't imagine such a cruel woman falling in love with someone. Even though she had to admit that the young man was very pleasant to her eyes, she knew that this guy was dangerous. "This guy is dangerous since he has caught a lot of our spies in the Capital."
Their expression turned grim when they heard such a report.
"Do we kill him?" Akame asked.
Najenda shook her head and said, "There is no report from the headquarters yet. Let's wait for a while."
"But this person is quite good, boss," Leone said. Even though she hated the people in the Capital, she knew that this newest Imperial Police who had been raising his rank very fast was very kind toward the slump and had buried a number of sc.u.mbags to the earth.
"...." Najenda didn't say anything and only continued to read the report.
Haru was in his room to read some information about his next target. He pinched the bridge of his nose and thought that he should take a rest since he hadn't had a break after he had arrived in this world. His job in this world was different since he needed to kill a lot of people and it put a lot of strain on his mind. No matter how many times, it was hard to get used to killing someone.
"Enter," Haru said and knew who had come, but he was a bit curious why she decided to come suddenly.
"Haru, did I wake you up?" Sayo asked after entering his door.
"No, I haven't slept yet. What's wrong? Tomorrow, you're going to go, right?" Haru asked.
Sayo closed the door and walked toward him. "Can we talk for a while?"
Haru looked at Sayo and nodded. "Sure."
