After listening to Jonathan’s words, Andy fell silent. The Eight Kings of War, with Hades as the leader,
wanted to support Jonathan and create a new order.
Meanwhile, Yaleview had always been the symbol of authority within Chanaea since it was the ancient
capital. No matter who held the authorities within Chanaea, they had to obtain Yaleview first.
This time, Jonathan ordered them to pull out all their informants in Yaleview, which also meant that he
gave up on the plans they had for Yaleview.
Although this decision could stabilize the current state of affairs in Chanaea, implementing Jonathan’s
order would instantly change everything in the country.
Within Chanaea, three separate forces were restraining and keeping each other in check—respectable
families, the Office of Government Affairs, and Asura’s Office.
Among them, respectable families had a long-standing history and exceeded materialistic restraints.
They did not have a fixed order and base and functioned as a huge and complex union formed through
After so much time had passed, these respectable families had a new tacit understanding. They
controlled the regime and did not intervene in the ruling process.
Placed at the top of the social class in the country, they controlled many aspects of Chanaea. This
included the monopoly of base industries that involved clothing, food, and shelter, which were
essentials for people.
For these people, respectable families were invisible vampires who constantly took from the
commoners using reason and law.
End of the day, these respectable families were just very good business people. For many years, these
respectable families monopolized many industries in society.
Since the industrial revolution a hundred years ago, no new respected family was allowed to join this
circle. Although there was competition among respectable families, these rivalries were kept at a
They were big shots that loomed over society, yet they still had to rely on the public to survive.
Ironically, they were the top predators and arrogant, but they somehow wanted society to develop
peacefully for a long time.
Meanwhile, excluding the huge and complex benefit-based union formed by respectable families, the
other two forces were Asura’s Office and the Office of Government Affairs.
Office of Government Affairs was Chanaea’s image and reputation, in charge of announcing all internal
and external matters.
Although the Office of Government Affairs had many members of respectable families, and they were
loyal to those families, the Office of Government Affairs remained orthodox and an independent entity
due to its unique status.
Furthermore, the Office of Government Affairs gained more authority after Joshua began governing
Chanaea in recent years.
It was also the reason why Asura’s Office spent more than two years investing a great deal and
planting spies in Yaleview.
In the past, the Office of Government Affairs was controlled by respectable families, and government
officials became those families’ tools to manage Chanaea.
However, Joshua popped out of nowhere and began changing the Office of Government Affairs’
objectives. He wasn’t even afraid of the members of respectable families. Someone like that was not a
What worried Asura’s Office’s Eight Kings of War was Wilbur’s six-hundred-thousand-men army in
Even the commander-in-chief from the Office of Government Affairs, who first suggested forming the
Yaleview Army, could not have expected this. The army conscription had rickrolled a whopping six
hundred thousand men.
At present, Wilbur’s troops and equipment were all lacking in comparison to the million soldiers under
However, Jonathan also said that everything had changed the moment Wilbur blocked and ordered the
shot at Jonathan at Yaleview’s border.
A deterrence through military prowess was like a nuclear bomb that would destroy everything.
If one party had ten thousand bombs, and the other only had a hundred bombs, the difference of
ninety-nine thousand nine hundred bombs was still useless because the results were the same—both
sides still had to suffer.
The decision to call back these spies seemed as if Jonathan was compromising to avoid confrontation
However, the truth was this was only the beginning of the opposition.
In the past, Asura’s Office had to be wary of Yaleview’s image despite its strength. Even if they obeyed
military orders but did not obey the summons, they were one level lower than Yaleview’s Office of
Government Affairs’ status on the surface.
However, these two were no longer in a superior-subordinate relationship from then on.
While looking at Jonathan, Andy understood that it would be war the next time they returned to
Yaleview after leaving now.
Jonathan’s retreat was to suppress the current conflict temporarily. However, this matter was like a
spring. The harder the compression force, the stronger it would rebound.
War would arrive soon.
“Mr. Goldstein, we have some superficial informants in Yaleview other than the spies we planted. How
should we deal with them?” Andy asked slowly after taking in a deep breath.
“Superficial informants? What exactly did Hades arrange in Yaleview?” Jonathan frowned and looked at
Andy recollected his memories and answered, “Mr. Goldstein, Yaleview is the Office of Government
Affairs’ territory and is protected by Yaleview Army. Two years ago, when Asura’s Office was
established, Hades was responsible for constructing the Intelligence Bureau. The first thing he did was
to send a large number of people to Yaleview.
They were divided into two groups. There were spies tasked with collecting key information,
assassinations, and such, and superficial informants who collected low-grade information. Although
superficial informants were required to hide their identities, too, the information protection level of their
identities was only grade B. In other words, they are baits.”
When Jonathan heard the word “baits,” his expression turned solemn.
It was simple. These people simply existed as a smokescreen to cover for the spies so the latter could
The personnel protection level was divided into five grades, S, A, B, C, and D.
Personnel in grade B was required to hide their identities but did not have a deep understanding of
their organization. They also did not have direct contact with the organization.
This kind of personnel could be easily found out if the opposition party put all its effort into the
“How many baits like this were sent out? How many were sacrificed?” Jonathan asked in a low voice.
Andy answered, “There was a total of thirty thousand people. The mortality accumulated to roughly four
thousand five hundred. Mr. Goldstein, we could only adopt this method two years ago since Asura’s
Office was newly established, and we had no foundation in Yaleview—”
“You don’t have to explain. I understand.” Jonathan opened his mouth and interrupted Andy. “Pass
along the order. Handle these superficial informants as if they had been exposed. Everyone has to
report to Yalegard Legion. You’ll be in charge of taking them in.”
“Huh? I have to take in all twenty thousand people?” Once Andy heard Jonathan’s orders, he was
“Not for you. Register them in the records and then divide them into eight groups for the Eight Kings of
War to lead into your respective territories.” Jonathan sighed. “Send those who were willing to continue
serving to the firefighting department. For those who want to retire, pay them two times the
Andy seemed to have understood something from Jonathan’s words and had a sad look in his eyes.
“Mr. Goldstein, they’re carefully selected people.”
Jonathan flashed a smile at Andy. “I don’t doubt their excellence and loyalty, but these twenty thousand
people had lived in Yaleview for two years. There must be some who had been bribed over. They were
people who dedicated their lives to us, so I don’t want to investigate them in detail. The best choice is
to give them a relatively peaceful life.”
