! Zhang Lei is walking across the floor with his guards. (His skin turned black)
Zhang Lei: Woble’s royal guards are all dead?
Guard: Yes, the information comes directly from the army, so it’s true. The only remaining 2 guards come from outside and are hunters.
Zhang Lei: No idea who did it, but targeting a baby first…Hm…Wait a second…The guards that were with the youngest prince are all associated with the other princes.
Zhang Lei: Then is it a bit strange that all were wiped out? Did they kill their ally too, so they wouldn’t look suspicious?
Guard: There are a few problems I need to tell you…
Zhang Lei: Nen Beasts?
Guard: I asked all of our guards, but it seems they don’t know anything. It’s likely that this word is connected to the incident where all guards were killed.
Zhang Lei is thinking about it.
Camilla: Father, it’s Camilla. I want to clarify this with you. There are few interpretations one can make from the word “To survive” and I think the fate of the ones “dropping out” is too ambiguous. I want you to agree that the ones that are not dead have not officially dropped out, okay?
Nasubi: Hohoho. Although the nuance is slightly different, Zhang Lei asked about the conditions of becoming the King too. I will give the exact same answer.
“The only one surviving is the official successor to the throne.” The way you interpret this is also a part of the succession fight hoi.
Benjamin: Kukuku you’re worrying about pointless things, Camilla. If your premise is to become King, then you shouldn’t rely on someone else’s perspective!
Camilla: Cami doesn’t like that! Cami wants to control all people in the world the way Cami wants it! To begin with, all princes aside Cami need to die! The ideal scenario is, everybody should proceed and die by themselves! I want everybody to think that Cami will be King so I should die!
Benjamin: What an arrogant woman…! Entrusting you the throne is like asking a mad dog to babysit!
Camilla: How dumb can you be? Cami won’t babysit anybody! Move away!
Nasubi: Camilla, respect your older brother.
Camilla walks away.
Camilla: I can’t forgive them…! This world is wrong! Cami has to change it herself! Only wishing it won’t change anything. How unfair can this world be!
Camilla’s Nen beast is transforming.
Benjamin: Father, this is the reality of someone who is not qualified! As her older brother, I’m deeply ashamed! I, Benjamin, will make sure to responsibly punish her for that! I promise to you here and now that I will protect the spirits of Kakin!
Nasubi: I expect great things from you hoi.
Benjamin leaves the room.
Someone: Bejamin Sama leaves the room. Area one is now under the maximum alert level!
Benjamin takes off his outwear.
Benjamin: I will kill you now! I will kill everybody! I can’t wait for the disembarkation. Tell Balsamic to bring Tserriednich to me!
Guard: Yes, sir!
Benhamin: I don’t care about the methods! But don’t kill him! I will do it!
Guard: Yes, sir!
Benjamin: Nen beasts that infect other people? Then why can’t a Nen user like me see it?
Balsamic: It’s just an assumption but I believe the contract is that the direct participants of the ceremony can’t see Nen beasts. Or there are other conditions that you don’t satisfy. The fact that the Nen Beast didn’t protect Prince Woble could mean that there is information that we don’t know about. We need to grasp this whole situation before the other princes! This will be the key to overcome this challenge! And taking rush actions before that could be life threatening.
Benhamin: You are telling me to way…?
Balsamic: Yes, there are two main reasons. The fact that our enemies are Nen Beasts and the fact that you can’t see the enemy means that it’s extremely dangerous for you to act by yourself. Therefore, we need to re-evaluate our plans. The second point is about the announcement call that was just made. The fact that they talked about “Nen Beasts” and “Nen Ability” means that all the princes’ guards became aware of Nen. Which means that are advantages are basically gone.
Benjamin: I see, hunters.
Balsamic: All of them are nen users and their history and knowledge about nen is higher than us. But protecting the princes is a secondary mission for them and they do not know much about Kakin’s insider information. We were in clear advantage in terms of the information battle. But because of the announcement made by one hunter, everybody became aware of their enemy.
And because of that, the ones capable of using Nen will be extremely cautious. Meaning our plan to use nen and do a raid strike is not possible anymore.
Benjamin: That really did the unnecessary. But I can’t understand this…why did that person do an announcement to leak all information? Oito surely didn’t tell that person about the ceremony of the vase, right? So why did that person leak the information to the other princes that the true identify of it are Nen Beasts?
Balsamic: I didn’t expect any less of your Benjamin Dono. We struggled to make sense of that part too. Deterrence is likely the reason. And in fact, because of that, we have to be patient now and reconsider our plans. The hunters’ primary mission is in the Dark Continent. That’s why they want to avoid any crushes on this ship and aim to maintain this situation. This also matches to the wishes of the younger princes. As their military power is limited, they are more passive in this battle. The other hunters reacted to the announcement by actively sharing information.
Benjamin: So the younger princes and their hunters want to work together to prolong their own lives…The way the hunters and the princes will use the Nen beasts will change the situation drastically.
Balsamic: It’s exactly as you say! The Nen beasts and hunters’ ability are unknown and depending on their abilities, they could pose serious danger to us. Also, the older princes’ private soldiers could be Nen users too. And the princes that became conscious of Nen may try to acquire it.Benjamin: Call all the private soldiers to this place!
Balsamic: Yes sir!
He is directed by emotions and likes to take the most efficient ways to achieve his goals, and often misunderstood because of that but…Benjamin Dono has no fear and always takes the most logical ways and when we provide him with all the information then he always makes logical and exact decisions.
All the private guards gather to Benjamin’s room.
We are still a developing country and in order to make the leap to a bigger country, we need someone as flexible as him…!
Benjamin: From now on, I want you people to work as the room guards for the other princes and interchange with this group. The mission will remain the same, continue to guard the other princes and continue to observe them. But, because of the unmeasurable danger that the nen beasts pose, the mission has changed become extremely dangerous! Pay the highest attention to the Nen beasts and the ability of the hunters! If the enemy attacks you or if there signs of potential attacks, then you have my permission to use your powers. In other words, I allow you to kill your enemy!
Guards: Yes! Sir!
Benjamin: Balsamic, and you guys, can you see my Nen beast?
Balsamic: Yes! It’s a nen beast that is deserving for the next King!
Benjamin’s nen beast is smiling.
[Zhang Lei’s room]
Zhang Lei: So Benjamin has used his most powerful private guards to spy on the other princes…
Room guards need to be official soldiers King’s army to be accepted that role…
Benjamin is the Military supreme counselor and the only person to have private guards that can be assigned that role. This is clearly caused by that announcement. I see this is the perfect opportunity to know more about the Nen Beasts.
Camilla: Make sure that they don't appear in front of Cami's eyes!
If they take even one step into the living room, kill them!
Guard: "Whatever shall we do? Given you are the 1st Queen's child, you have no obligation to respond to the request…"
Tserriednich: "Tell them 'You're all fools'. I am in the middle of my Nen meditation."
Tubeppa: (The person with that emergency announcement… Stagnation is probably their aim.
Tubepaa: "I want information on that Hunter. Bring it to me ASAP" Guard: "Yes sir"
Kurapika: (The phones on this ship are managed by the King's guards. Contacting Melody's side via normal means will surely be dangerous.)
(The wireless phones used by the guards to each prince has their wireless channels restricted. Meaning it is not possible for guards of different princes to contact each other.)
(It would be nice if we were able to acquire a different set of wireless phones to exchange information…)
(Whatever we do, we are overwhelmingly short on manpower.)
Bill: "If we use Sayird's powers, aren't we able to investigate the other princes?"
Kurapika: "It's possible but we can't snoop around blindly. If we don't narrow down on a target or some piece of critical information, we won't be able to properly guard the prince while also doing this high-risk scouting."
Someone rang the doorbell.
Kurapika: "It's probably guards from the 1st prince." (During this precarious situation, yet another surveillance guard enters the fray…?)
The maid answers the door.
Guard: "We have made contact before. I am Vincent, a Royal Guard to the 1st prince."
Woble starts crying.
Oito: "What ever is the matter? And here I am breast-feeding… I may be getting sleepy. I'm going back to my bedroom to rest. The baby is feeling uneasy."
Kurapika: We understand. Let's make sure to guard the door and shift our turns.
Bill notices something.
Bill: "What the…!?"
Kurapika traces Bill's line of sight and there he saw… Vincent and the now deceased maid, who has been stabbed dead in her heart.
Vincent: She suddenly attacked me with her knife…I had no other option...Yes...She also carried a small poisonous bin with her...yes...She probably tried to use it on us...So I used my rights to defend myself...Yes...
Kurapika: So it's not about observing but assassinating…
