they were going to the bar and brothel to have fun. This makes us work twice as hard." The Magistrate started to boil regarding the bad treatment he got from the Count and other officials.

Remembering the bad treatment they got and seeing that the magistrate pledges his allegiance to me, the other officials decided to follow suit and kneeled.

"""I pledge myself to Lord!"""

I receive their submission with a beaming smile.

"Good good good, I won't mistreat you." Then as I remembered something, I resumed, "I will give you guys the first mission, prepare personnel for transporting gold from the Manor."

"""Yes, My Lord!!!""" All of the officials salute with a slight bowing then left to gather personnel.

Actually, moving the gold from the Manor could be done by the robots but as I need it to do something else and it will attract attention, I decided not to. The gold coins were also had been move from the secret room to the other room in the Manor.

After I finished giving the order, I continue my occupation of the County. As Sanchez County has 1 medium to big sized city, 3 small towns and 14 villages with a total population of around 70.000, I need to split my force.

The expression the people have in this city seems quite gloomy as if troubled about what to eat tomorrow. They also seem quite malnourished a little.

Just as I walk for about a minute or so, I spotted a store in the side that catches my eye. Then, I approach it to gather more information on the people.

As I got inside the store, I see a plump middle age woman sitting behind a counter uncaringly gazing at the side as if in a trance and it requires a full ten seconds before she realizes I was inside the store.

"Oh.. a costumer? Do you need anything?" she said while holding her head lazily without glancing at me fully.
