Philia and Kang Seol agreed to move together to their destination. It was a quite reasonable decision since there was no need to move separately as long as the purpose was the same.
However, the atmosphere was a bit cold considering that we were accompanying each other.
“So, since my habitual kleptomania was triggered, how could I…”
A cold atmosphere.
The atmosphere continued even while riding the horse.
– Contempt – Contempt
– I rather like it!
– ??? : You didn’t mean to steal it? You’re not doing this because you got caught?
And what made this atmosphere even colder was the feeling of sadness.
“It’s been a while, girl!”
Bitan said with a big smile.
【Hmm… It’s the fearsome grief!】
“… So who?”
【… You don’t know me?】
“I don’t remember seeing you…”
【It’s so sharp! Don’t you remember that knife that feels like a knife?】
【Do you remember now?】
【No… Think about it carefully… The memory of being scared and covering yourself with blankets at night…】
“I’m sorry… I really did. “I don’t remember.”
【… I hate humans.】
Somehow, Philia’s words seemed to be further from Kangseol than before.
Kang Seol sighed and accepted this situation.
I was constantly at odds with one person.
As street fighting continued, delivery of letters was delayed.
In a situation that was so urgent, Snowfall ended up heading to Parte, the goats’ home base, instead of chasing him.
In the process, snowfall briefly intervened in the passing cities.
Usually in such cases, the remaining goat leaders would be neatly removed.
“You were the crow.”
“The crow is said to give the final blow to the dying goat. “I guess they call it that because the crows eat the corpses.”
I was surprised to think that the characteristics of the creature used for reconnaissance had already been rumored, but that didn’t seem to be the case.
“Isn’t it disgraceful? Snowman is not the kind of person who should be treated like that…”
“It doesn’t matter because I didn’t come forward out of honor.”
“I’m in a hurry to go. “There is a place that needs to be dealt with and visited quickly.”
Philia and Kang Seol gave a smash to every city they stopped by on the way.
Rumors about him spread not only to the Knights of Adeline, who were at war with goats, but also to the transferees.
“We will arrive at Parteh soon.”
“It’s earlier than scheduled. “I think we’ve almost caught up…”
“Now that this has happened, the collapse of the cartel is certain.”
“We’ve already attacked him to the point where he can’t stand up, so it’s unexpected that Kaio didn’t back down from Parte.”
He was like the de facto leader of the goat cartel. No, in fact, the leadership of the Goat Cartel consisted of quite a few people other than Kaio.
However, as the fight with the transferees and Adeline dragged on, all the leaders who had any weight were eliminated, and only Kaio was left.
“I don’t know. “There might be a hidden trick….”
“You have to be careful.”
“That doesn’t suit you.”
“I saw something….”
– I always do my best. Even if the other person is an elementary school student!
– Come on, low grade! A man who has served in the military will deal with me!
Philia smiled softly as she looked at the embarrassed Snowfall.
Although I was a bit tired due to the unreasonable schedule, it would end with Parteh.
* * *
Parteh, the final front line of the goats and a large city in the far western region of Adeline.
“Anywhere! “Get out of the city!”
Citizens fled the city in a state of panic.
The reason the goats don’t do anything to stop them is either because they have already given up or because it was a waste of effort to focus on them.
I heard some kind of rustling sound coming from the city area. The sound was almost like a group singing, so we could guess that the cavalry was coming.
“yes! Mr. Bren.”
“You damn criminals. “I’m tired. I should go to the royal capital and get some rest.”
Dazzling golden curly hair down to his shoulders and mysterious blue eyes set off the appearance of Bren, the chief knight of the Knights of Beregion.
“Um… Bren. “You wear a helmet…”
“Hmph, I know. “I’m doing this because I’m frustrated, so please be patient until we go out.”
Bren saw people who were far ahead of him.
“Spread out! “I’m being targeted!”
He cast a disdainful glance at those who were currently engaged in a fierce battle.
Bren didn’t like transferors very much.
No, it would be more accurate to say that I hate it. Not only the criminal, but also the transferees who are now helping him.
Of course, I didn’t show it or say anything rude. Because such an act was truly unclassy.
Hanging out with trash means being in the same class as trash.
He completely ignored the transferees.
He seemed to be excited by the yelping and yelling coming from his horse.
“Calm down, Richelle. The excitement comes later. Lalsa.”
He called the woman who followed him.
“from now on.”
A woman named Ralsa was wearing equipment unsuitable for a knight.
It was a device similar to goggles, but strange numbers kept appearing on the lens.
“So, how do you feel about wearing Beregion’s latest equipment?”
“Amazing! Being able to see through the opponent’s capabilities… I am thrilled that our joint development capabilities with the Magic Tower have already reached this point!”
This equipment was a device that measured combat capabilities based on the energy felt from the opponent. Just as transferencers guess the strength of their opponents based on their adventure points within the base.
However, there were a few differences as well.
First of all, it was impossible to accurately predict the adventure score.
It was a device that made a conclusion that ‘… there was more than a point’ by looking at it.
Additionally, there were many cases where combat power was set higher than the actual adventure score. Still, this was bearable because it only used pure combat power as the information, regardless of the adventure score.
However, Ralsa did not report this problem to Knight Bren.
Bren was a narrow-minded person who did not believe in anything he did not directly experience. Plus, he acted as if he didn’t hear the unfavorable part.
‘It would be better not to report it. No, even if I report it, I’ll do it after I return.’
Ralsa confirmed Bren’s combat power.
‘8 million points….’
For reference, the ghost prosecutor I encountered the other day was close to 10 million points.
‘Tell me that Bren is weaker than Jeonja… I can’t do it.’
If he said that, Lalsa would be punished for all kinds of excuses. It was a characteristic of the rigid barracks culture.
Bren closed his eyes, listening to the sound of metal clashing against metal.
“In the end… won’t a transferencer stronger than Kaiomatos appear? I have no choice but to use this body to defeat Kaio, the leader of the enemy. After all, the sword had to be dipped in the blood of a low-quality transferor…”
Ralsa was nervous.
It is known to the public that Kaio Matos’ adventure score is over 8.5 million points.
The higher you go, the actual combat power is often higher than the adventure score, so Kaio’s combat power will be much higher than 8.5 million points.
So Bren will lose.
“I… I’m leaving it to the ghost prosecutor…”
“Are you saying we’re going to hand the ball over to him?”
“Oh no. “I’m just worried that you might get injured…”
“Heung, that guy is clumsy. It’s fast… but will that speed really work for this Bren? “Lalsa, how do you see it?”
Ralsa thought to himself, hiccupping.
‘I don’t know. I think the ghost prosecutor will win…’
My inner thoughts were filtered and turned into sounds that were pleasant to listen to.
“There is no way the ghost swordsman’s sword could reach Bren.”
“Haha… as expected.”
“Most of the transferees cannot be your opponents.”
“Mhahahaha! But those eyes are not knotholes! The Knights of Beregion postponed their busy event and came in person, so of course the criminal scum should pay for their crimes. “Isn’t that true, everyone?”
“Beregion is invincible!”
A scene of collective madness.
Unfortunately, midnight did not come true because only the idiots who mistook this for fighting spirit gathered together.
“Show our strength!”
“He told me to blow the horn!”
The sight of horsemen suddenly charging down the main street of the city at once was a spectacular sight.
They rushed furiously to approach the monstrosity that looked like a fortress built in Parte.
* * *
Conversation took place above the fortress building in Parte.
“Kaiowen idiot is running.”
“Tear it down.”
“Civilians will be swept away?”
“Does it matter?”
Kaio asked as if he were bored.
The man who was asked the question smiled and answered.
The wick of the cannon caught fire.
Then the fire on the wick reached the cannon, and the cannon spouted a pillar of fire.
With a sound like a thunderbolt, a cannonball hit the road where the cavalrymen were running.
A person who was kicked by the hoof of a running horse, a person who was hit directly by a cannonball and died unexpectedly, and a person who lost his mind due to the smoke and collided with another horse.
Kaio said casually.
“It’s worth seeing.”
Bren barely escaped the shell, but his horse died instantly from the impact.
“Those scum… how dare they use gunpowder in the city!”
“Where on earth did you get that much gunpowder…”
Kaio gave the command again.
“It’s noisy. Be quiet.”
One cannon caught fire, and the wick of the other cannon also tried to catch fire.
However, in an unexpected situation, one cannon exploded.
“What’s going on?”
“It’s a transference!”
Bren, who had gained some time from the transferor’s attack, glanced at the wizard who attacked the cannon for a moment and then ran forward.
“joy! It helps sometimes. Remember the name for me, Ralsa. “I will praise you later.”
I don’t know why he asked Ralsa to remember a name that he himself couldn’t be bothered to remember, but anyway, after much sacrifice, Bren was able to reach the fortress.
“I’ll go first! “Let’s clean up the rest from downstairs!”
“Lalsa! “Just make sure you follow me.”
“yes? Uh… uhh….”
Bren grabbed Ralsa’s waist and leapt into the air.
Bren runs down the wall and soars into the air.
As the scenery changed in an instant, Ralsa nauseated.
Bren finally arrived at the top of the building.
“Did you think that you could stop me, Bren, with such an abomination?”
“Oh my gosh, that stupid knight came up.”
While Kaio was bending his neck and taking a stance, other personnel also arrived one after another.
Kaio gave an order as the number of warriors above the fortress continued to increase.
Most guns of this era had the same performance as muskets, so the shower of bullets quickly stopped.
However, even with that brief bombardment, the fighters plummeted to the floor.
Strangely, Ralsa and Bren were not swept away by the bombardment. This is what Kaio intended.
“Do you understand the situation?”
“… How strong is Ralsa?”
“…close to 10 million points.”
“Next to that?”
“Next to that?”
“… It’s a trap.”
Under the pretense of retreat, the real strength of the goats was gathering in Frete.
“Ralsa, what is my power?”
“Hey, what kind of interesting things are you talking about between you?”
“Let’s talk, Kaio-dono. If the indiscriminate massacre of civilians continues like this, Adeline will officially…”
A bullet grazed Bren’s earlobe.
“What are you talking about, you brat?”
“You seem to be out of your mind?”
“Should I tear it up with a cannon?”
“That’s good too!”
One cannon rotated and aimed at Bren
at that time.
The catcher fell down, clutching his neck.
The man who decapitated the catcher stopped in front of Bren.
“Lord Bren, are you okay?”
“Ghost ghost prosecutor.”
One person looked at Kaio and said.
“It’s almost time, Kaio. All the other goats left for the underworld. “You should follow too.”
Sudden trigger attack.
But about one person was faster than him.
Everyone couldn’t believe the sight before their eyes.
When one of the men flashed his sword, the bullet ricocheted and hit another gunner.
“… Look at this guy?”
The spirit of one person was scary, but the goats were not afraid.
“You can’t hold us down alone.”
“You didn’t say you were alone?”
“Hmph, all those idiots….”
One or more people turned their heads and looked into space.
“You came. So, it’s time.”
A woman fell alone with such an impact that the rooftop shook.
It was Karen.
“… What is this again?”
Chief Knight Bren was greatly impressed by Karen’s appearance.
‘strong! ‘You’re strong!’
I could tell just by the energy I felt.
“Nice to meet you. Perhaps you want to support this Bren…”
When Karen turned around with her red hair flying, Bren felt like his breath was taken away.
“Is this your first time seeing me?”
Bren asked Ralsa.
“Ralsa, that article….”
“1… 18 million.”
“… what? At that level, it’s broken… No, if it’s a fairy, it’s not like it’s a transference… A strong person has appeared to help this Bren!”
At that time, someone more arrived on the rooftop.
“Is this the end?”
Karen answered the man’s question.
“huh! “There are at least one person here.”
A man who came up as if taking a light stroll.
Bren stabbed Ralsa in the side.
Ralsa did not answer but took off the measuring device and threw it away.
“What are you doing?”
“I’m sure the measuring instrument was broken due to the impact from earlier, Bren.”
