A fleet of carriages had steered into a small town on the border. People were trying to avoid it as they knew anyone targeted by the fleet would only end up in misery. That’s why everybody could not wait to see these uninvited guests out. The fleet parked in front of a tavern on the town border, and a fat figure in military uniform came out from the carriage.
General: Where is my legendary and peerless beauty - Florice? Why is she still not here to serve me!?
Florice: Pardon me. To welcome our great General, we’ve spent lots of time to prepare a splendid performance for you.
Florice: I’m sure you’ll be very satisfied.
General: Let’s get moving then. I really wonder if your skills can bring me to ecstasy, just as the rumors said!
Assassin: Enemy’s dog, die!
Florice: General, I’ll take care of him.
Assassin: Florice, how dare you betray us and help the enemy!?
Florice: What a fool! General is a wise and strong man. Of course I’ll follow him!
General: Hahaaa! You’re a smart woman. I’ll treat you well!
Enticed by Florice, the general went to the tavern frequently. Sometimes he even invited Florice to his mansion and there she could do anything she wanted. Florice took this chance to search for useful information. One day, she had found a document on the desk of his stack room.
Florice: New Weapon Plan...This is it! Here we go the next step…
Since the general entered the main town, the place had been completely cut off from the outside. Outsiders knew nothing about the situation inside that the citizens were trapped in there, as if a gigantic prison. The carriage seized today was suspected of smuggling people out, and these people were disguised as goods in sacks. The escaping driver and the citizens caught knelt in a row at the centre of the town square, with their hands and legs tied up.
General: This bunch of men-filth dared to escape from me. Execute them in public and hang the corpses three days.
General: Let’s see who still has the guts to run away again!
General: Florice, are you alright? You look pale…
Florice: ...I’m fine. These fools make me sick. General, I don’t want to watch anymore. I’ll see myself out.
Florice: Dang it! How could this be? I hate you...one day I will slaughter that dumb pig myself!
General’s Right-hand Man: Aren’t you Ms. Florice? Why are you still here? It’s getting late.
Florice: It’s boring in the mansion, so I come out to get some fresh air. What’s the matter?
General’s Right-hand Man: Based on our intelligence, there are trails of rebel forces around here.
General’s Right-hand Man: We’ve narrowed the search area down. Hopefully, we’ll soon have some result.
General’s Right-hand Man: It’s dangerous here. Perhaps it’s better to send a guard with you——Uhh? Ms. Florice?
General’s Right-hand Man: You… could it be that you’re in collusion with them...
Florice: There are troops searching outside. You better leave now!
Leader: We’re ready for evacuation. We can leave at any time. The progress of the new weapon is in full swing and they’ll be in production soon.
Florice: ...Are we doing the right thing? Those people… didn’t have to die…
Leader: There is no turning back. If we give up now, their deaths will be in vain.
Florice: You’re right. To save the citizens, we must be strong!
The General moved his arsenal into the basement of the Florice’s tavern. At her instigation, the General had delegated for Florice to take charge of the arsenal while he simply indulged in entertainment. It wasn’t until the day before the pilot of the “Devastator” that the General finally took back his responsibilities and got in the cockpit of the “Devastator” for the firing test. The test was successful and it had destroyed the entire hill.
General: Perfect! Well done Florice! With the “ Devastator”, I will definitely gain the King’s approval. I’ll recommend you to the highness as well!
Florice: Thank you, General! I’m really looking forward to the pilot tomorrow.
No one had noticed that Florice had a grin as she following the General.
Florice: Tomorrow will be the pilot of the “Devastator”. That fat pig loves to show off and he has invited the King. This is our best chance.
Leader: Right! Everything is ready. Tomorrow, he’ll be sitting on the fake “Devastator”. I can’t wait to see how this ends!
