*Talking on the phone, in the military camp near the Feral Forest*
"Buongiorno (=Good morning), RHS Gabriel the Hedgehog here.
At your services, Your Higness.
Our position? Near the Feral Forest, heading to the West. As You may know, Julian has a huge army in there, ready to strike in 3 or 4 days. The early we arive, the higher the chance to defeat them and prevent an invasion.
Sire, I don't think it's a good idea.
No, I'm not questioning Your orders, but heading to the Death Egg's location to destroy it it's a suicide, if you let me, and it will surely leave New Mobotropolis under a 10.000 bots invasion without any protection against it.
No, King Naugus, I'm not doing mutiny. I'm just saying why I can't have the risk of leaving the city alone for chasing a rotten egg in the sky that would easily kill all of my men in a glimpse.
And It's my work for sure. As Royal Head Strategist I'm charged to execute the best tactic without having life losses, be they civilians or military.
It's not cowardy nor mutiny.
Your Highness, listen to me please, I have the duty and mission to get all of my comrades home in one piece and, above all, to make sure that...
WHAT THE HELL?
WHAT IS THAT SUPPOSED TO MEAN? "I DON'T CARE ABOUT LIFE LOSSES?"
SIRE, I'M DOING THE BEST I CAN TO GET THESE MEN BACK HOME AND ENSURE THEY HAVE A HOME AND A FAMILY TO GET BACK TO, AND YOU SAY THAT YOU DON'T GIVE A SHIT?
Sire, this is outrageous.
I don't know why people acclaimed you King, but surely wasn't for your kindness... you never stood up seriously against something.
Well... me and my fourteen-thousand comerades are going aginst those bots.
No Sir, I'm doing the best for my men and the whole city.
Now Sire,I've got a war to fight and win. Gabriel Out."
*A bit later, still at the phone*
"Nicole, can I ask you a favour?
Thanks dear. Can you send a message to Team Heroes and King Elias?
Well. Say them this: My men are ready, the bastard has been fooled, the coup is inevitable. His deposition is only matter of time. We'll be on our way when you want us to.
Thanks Nicole. God bless you."
