Guild Meeting #2(2)

The day before the guild meeting.

A welcome guest visited Rockefeller.

It was Carter, who had heard about the guild meeting and came from Lyon.

Carter, who had traveled comfortably by carriage to match his aged body, knocked on the door of the small mansion in Lyon where Rockefeller was staying after getting off the carriage.

As the guild meeting was scheduled for the next day, Rockefeller naturally expected Carter's visit and happily greeted Carter as he went outside to meet him upon hearing the knock on the door.

"Carter, sir, you've arrived."

"Have you been well?"

"Yes, nothing special happened since I came here."

"I heard about the meeting and hurried to find you. I got the news from Joshua."

"First, let's go inside. It would be better to talk indoors."

Inside the mansion.

The place, neither too large nor too small, was provided by Benjamin, the guild master, for Rockefeller to stay temporarily in Lyon.

With even a servant to attend to his personal needs, Carter looked around the modest mansion interior without feeling any inconvenience.

"Your home is better than this. It seems Benjamin doesn't know what kind of person you are. If he knew, he would have given you a better place."

"This is more than enough. Carter, sir, please take a seat here."

Rockefeller led Carter to the living room, offered him a seat, and then sat down next to him.

Carter, who entrusted his body to the soft sofa, opened his mouth with a small cough.

"Opening a guild meeting over the interest issue. The guild master is quite a problem. He should know what's right and wrong by trying it himself, but he doesn't even try. Tsk, tsk, tsk."

"Rather than that, I guess he's more upset about not receiving the gold storage fee."

"That's true, but he doesn't know what kind of person you are. He doesn't know anything."

Before the conversation deepened, Rockefeller sent the servant, who was attending to matters inside the house, on an errand and had him leave.

As soon as the servant left the mansion, Carter started talking.

"Are you being cautious?"

"Yes, he might be working for me, but he's not my person."

"I see... You said this place was provided by the guild master, right?"

"Yes, it's a place he gave me to stay temporarily."

"Then it's right to be cautious."

Carter, who had been nodding alone, continued the conversation.

"So, what's the plan? You're not going to raise a banner against the guild master's thoughts, are you?"

"No, I'm not."

"You're not?"

Carter showed a puzzled expression.

"Then are you going to raise a banner in agreement with the guild master's thoughts?"

As far as Carter knew, there was only one course of action Rockefeller would take at the guild meeting scheduled for tomorrow.

To agree with the guild master's thoughts and admit his wrongdoing in receiving deposit interest in front of everyone.

However, the reality was different.

"Yes, we will expel the guild master at the upcoming guild meeting."

"What? Expel him?"

Carter's eyes widened in surprise.

"Is that... even possible?"

To Carter, who was well aware of the relationship between the guild master, the Lyon family, and even further, the relationship with Bishop Verkis, Rockefeller's words sounded like a very unrealistic story with no possibility of realization.

"Yes, I've already obtained the guardian's consent beforehand. There won't be any major problems if the guild master is expelled now."

Rockefeller responded with a faint smile, and when Carter still showed doubt, he explained the events that had occurred so far.

After listening to the explanation, Carter reacted.

"Heh... So that's what happened."

Carter paused for a moment, leaned his waist against the backrest, and began stroking his chin beard.

"Actually, I also received a separate letter from the guild master besides the news of the guild meeting."

Carter, who had finished speaking, took something out of his pocket and handed it to Rockefeller.

"The content is roughly like this. It says that you were a useless assistant contrary to the rumors, and it asks me to testify to that at the upcoming guild meeting. If I don't, he threatened to expel me from the guild. It's laughable, really."

Rockefeller, who had quickly skimmed the contents of the letter Carter handed over, nodded his head.

"I can use this to my advantage in tomorrow's meeting, exposing the guild master for trying to frame me like this."

"The guild master went as far as sending this."

Carter chimed in.

"As you know, I'm undoubtedly on your side. You've brought me so much profit. Why would I support him and be afraid of being kicked out of the guild?"

Rockefeller, who had put away the letter Carter handed over, smiled faintly.

"Mr. Carter, aren't you trusting me too much?"

"Of course, I trust you. You managed to defeat that cunning lord, so I have no doubt you can take care of the guild master here. You must have a prepared plan."

Rockefeller became curious about Carter's recent activities, as he had stepped back from the store's affairs.

"What have you been up to lately? I heard from Joshua that you never show up at the store."

"I let go of the store's work a while ago. You guys are making money on your own, so there's no need for me to struggle, right?"

Rockefeller simply nodded in response.

"It's a long-awaited break. I'm enjoying it leisurely. Lately, I've been picking up small hobbies. I honestly didn't want to attend this meeting. Why would I come when I'm not even working anymore? It's better to stay home and rest."

"But you still came."

Carter looked at Rockefeller as he spoke.

"The only reason I came to this bothersome place is to help you. When that guild master sent me that ridiculous letter, I decided to come here and give him a piece of my mind. How dare he try to frame my golden assistant! I really came here to speak up."

"I'm simply grateful that you care so much about me."

"No, I'm the one who's grateful. If things go well here, I can live without worries for the rest of my life."

Rockefeller, who seemed to agree, said, 'I feel the same.'

"Your testimony in tomorrow's meeting will be quite important, Mr. Carter. I'll take the lead, and then you can help me."

That was what he intended to do anyway.

"Don't worry about that. I'll be on your side no matter what."
