A group of officials could also be seen at the side being tied with a rope. There was also a group of robots not far from them, watching and securing the people by holding the rope tightly.
The officials were having an expression of gloom and were down casting their gaze below as if waiting for an execution. Seeing this, I don't know whether to laugh or cry.
Then, I approach the crowd and ordered the robots to bring the official inside the hall. The hall resembled a roman styled building with having a big white pillar at the front and inside to support the structure.
As I got to the center of the hall, the officials were untied and presented in front of me. The officials were a little bit surprised to see that the master of the golems they see, was only an 11-year-old boy or so.
"Let's just make this short but first who is the magistrate of this city?" My face becomes serious as I inspect the officials in front of me.

"Lord Viscount, I will pledge my allegiance to you, as long as you spare my family." The magistrate stated with pleading in his face.
"Good, I promise that I won't harm your family." I nod my head with a smile and a little surprise that the magistrate cared so much to his family.
