＃When I returned, my family was ruined (193)
The gaze inside the robe was directed in this direction. It’s so blatant that it’s impossible to not know unless you know it. Soon the air around became heavy.
It was the leader’s momentum.
Not only is there a lot of storage, it’s also pressure with great control and delicacy. Ethan’s eyes sparkled as he witnessed the energy beginning to surge like a nimble snake.
I wasn’t just amazed by the power of the religious leader. A force that is putting pressure on the surroundings. It was an energy that was overly familiar to Ethan.
A corps commander who leads the shape changers, one of the dragon race, and an entity called the dragon of deception. I finally found one of the corps commanders I had encountered in my past life.
The Balaur’s body and mana amount were incomparable to that of humans, but they also had some weaknesses.
He was so intoxicated by his overwhelming power that he neglected his own development.
It was a phrase that applied equally to everyone, starting from the dragonlord to the legion commanders below him.
That is why the war was able to last for quite a long time. Although the Yongin people were born with many things, it was humans who ultimately made them bloom.
many things were different.
Obviously, the energy itself was something I had experienced countless times in my past life.
The level of handling was different.
That was the case with the refined momentum he is showing now.
If he had been Naraxus in his previous life, he would have been able to generate enormous energy, but he would not have been able to hide it from humans. Fear must have spread to the Colosseum. But it was different now.
None of the humans gathered here noticed the captured energy of Naraxus.
Even Ethan would have had a hard time noticing that the cunning dragon was opening up his energy if he had not faced the cult leader directly.
Excellent mana control.
It was clear that they had embraced human technology very actively.
‘…It’s become much more difficult to deal with.’
Since shape changers can change their appearance, they were treated as inferior to other corps commanders in terms of military power. The same story applied to Naraxus.
But now it was different.
Having your essence read by another being is a very dirty feeling. This was even more so if it was a dragon race.
He saw the energy of Naraxus and stretched out his hand.
An energy without substance.
He caught it at once as if catching a fly, and then poured the white salt flowing through his entire body into his energy.
The power of fire.
A searing heat surrounded the surroundings. The energy of the two was slowly starting to fight for power.
* * *
The Duke’s growth rate was too fast to be described as simply exceeding expectations.
This was a fact that could be seen just by looking at the Duke’s momentum, which was now burning down everything around him.
Cult leader Naraxus’ eyes sparkled.
High-ranking nobles located at the top.
Among them, most were talented people who received gold-level invitations. They were all humans who not only reached the level of superhumans before reaching the age of thirty, but also gained great fame in each kingdom. The people who have settled down like that are over twenty.
No one noticed the battle of momentum between the two.
The reason was simple.
This was because the duke completely blocked the surroundings. It was done so elaborately that even the later Jisoo, who had the second-highest skill in each kingdom, didn’t even notice anything strange.
felt like… I was encountering gold located between lumpy pebbles.
Suddenly, a smile appeared on Naraxus’s lips. It was impossible for even the Balaur, who were born with an overwhelming superiority over humans, to gain the power of a transcendental within a year.
A human being who has reached the level of a transcendent in such a short period of time.
After a short test, I realized it clearly.
The rumors that abounded were entirely true. That is not an exaggeration, but a reduced truth. All the energy that had been coiled around the duke like a snake could be seen burning.
I regained my energy without any regrets.
The test was over and over again.
“…I don’t know if the competition will be noticeable. “It’s still the preliminaries…”
The eyes of the old king sitting next to him suddenly turned towards him. He lowered his head as if he was wary of making eye contact.
As he visited this place as a special envoy of the Zeno Empire with full authority from the emperor, Bjorn’s attitude was cautious and cautious. Naraxus’ eyes turned to Bjorn’s body.
If you were an ordinary human being, you would have felt an extremely fragrant scent. As the king of a country, he was covered in a lot of luxurious perfume. It is also carefully mixed so that the scent is not overpowering. Despite his efforts, Naraxus could only frown.
This was because the overly developed sense of smell of the dragon race did not miss the slightest hint of the scent of aging humans.
As if the smell of damp sweat wasn’t enough, a musty scent peculiar to old people wafted through the air.
It wasn’t something that could be covered up with perfume at best.
The old king seemed very distressed, perhaps because he watched the game in silence. Perhaps I was worried that I might have felt bored.
What made the dragon tribe feel better was that the king’s voice was much clearer than usual.
It was extremely inefficient to have a conversation in a helpless and helpless manner, so it was fortunate that I had told Anna in advance.
If I hadn’t done that, it would have taken a very long time to end the conversation because I was out of breath on every word. That was not what Naraxus had hoped for.
The cunning dragon adjusted its vocal cords. Soon, a soft voice flowed towards Bjorn.
“The level of the swordsmanship competition was much higher than I expected. Even though it is only a preliminaries, it is very enjoyable to watch.”
“…haha. I am very glad that the religious leader is satisfied. Oh, do you see the article over there? “In silver armor…”
When I heard the words, the old king became overly excited.
It was very annoying, but in any case, it was necessary to act as a kind-hearted ‘cult leader’ here. A soft voice continued.
“yes. Are you by any chance a descendant of the Floten family?”
Their descendants were famous for having blue hair. The hair of the knight Bjorn pointed to was as blue as the sea. At those words, the king nodded vigorously.
“yes. Sir Damian is one of the prides of our kingdom. “He is a talented person who reached superhuman status at the age of 25.”
“It’s definitely amazing. “The future of the Kingdom of Limedell seems truly bright.”
Honestly, I wasn’t surprised at all.
Just a little while ago, at the age of 20, wasn’t he in a fight with a monster who had overcome the wall of transcendence?
In comparison, the guy called Damian may have a reputation among humans, but he was actually just a rookie among newbies.
It’s just one of those tiny bugs that can take your life with just a flick of a finger. That’s why I tried to look away. If only I hadn’t glanced in the direction that person was staring.
The gaze of the guy called Damian was fixed on Ethan, who was on the top floor.
A burning feeling in the pupils.
‘Is it jealousy?’
The emotional rift was too deep to simply be called jealousy. Because life was flowing between the blue pupils.
“Now that I think about it, I heard that you had some business with Duke Floten.”
“How can I… do that…?”
The old king’s face trembled. It’s like a rabbit that jumps out when you touch the grass. That sight was quite funny.
“I happened to hear it.”
“Ha… It’s not like you have to hide it from the religious leader. you’re right.”
“Did it work out well?”
“…yes. “The Duke’s family has made a great decision.”
Naraxus chuckled. Perhaps Floten’s son also knew about it. So, I guess they are gnashing their teeth at Ethan.
The Duke’s gaze, which had been staring at him, moved in a different direction.
It was directed at Floten’s self-control, which was looking at him with a blazing murderous spirit.
* * *
Damian gritted his teeth.
It happened a few days ago at most.
That incident was so shocking to me that I would never forget it for the rest of my life.
The beginning of the incident was very simple.
The King sent a message.
I want Ardan’s things back.
Could it be that the king has become senile? It was an order so absurd that such a thought seriously occurred to me, and it was also an order that could not be followed directly.
It was not simply because of the value of the black liquid lump.
What value is there in a lump of liquid at best?
It’s an object whose purpose I don’t even know.
The reason the Duke of Floten refused the king’s offer was not simply due to greed. It was all just a move for the Kingdom of Limedell.
I don’t know its purpose, but it is definitely a useful item for Ardan.
How would the situation change if such an item were passed over? Ethan’s skills, which were already famous, might grow rapidly.
That was the worst thing about Limedell. Haven’t you already been in conflict with Heidern?
Therefore, he forbade the export of liquid lumps, even defying the king’s orders. If you hold on, the competition will end, and then the duke will have no choice but to return.
He wouldn’t be able to do something crazy like attack Floten Street by himself, right? This was Limedell territory.
I thought it would end like that.
But that was a huge miscalculation. Just one day after I expressed my refusal, someone came to me.
The girl introduced herself as the king’s special envoy. And he spoke very briefly about his purpose.
“Give me that item. “If you don’t want to die.”
The matriarch refused and was faced with a terrible monster hidden beneath the appearance of an innocent girl. Even the transcendent family head was badly pushed aside by the monster. All of the family’s loyal knights rushed towards the monster.
The result was a terrible massacre.
The sight of knights stabbing each other like puppets tied by strings…!
What’s even more terrifying is that even Damian couldn’t escape that control.
Only the matriarch could resist that power. However, it did not help the knights. This was because the figures that came out of the girl’s body rushed towards the head of the family.
Red blood swept through my inner self.
A feeling of extreme helplessness.
I can definitely say that it was the first time in my life that I felt this level of helplessness.
An overwhelming difference in power.
The head of the family knelt down.
But the massacre did not stop.
“You should have listened carefully from the beginning.”
The girl continued the massacre with a cruel smile on her face.
Over 100 elite knights.
The massacre ended only when they were all killed. The sight of countless colleagues dying to protect one liquid that was at best trash!
In the end, the liquid mass returned to its original owner, but the knights who closed their eyes never returned to their families again.
All of this happened because of Ethan, who was currently sitting on the top floor. Even if that guy hadn’t just asked for the liquid lump back.
Because that monster would never have visited the family. Now Damian’s goal was not simply to gain fame.
To show the culprit of this incident a taste of the heat.
That was the only driving force that moved his body.
‘…I’ll put you in shame.’
His eyes glowed with death as he looked at Ethan.
