#After returning, the family was ruined (250)
Lorotia’s face hardened. It was unexpected that Ethan immediately realized that Ysera’s body had been taken and that he began to show intense hostility.
That’s because the process of binding Ysera’s soul was done very delicately and secretly. Even if he was accompanied by a high-ranking transcendental person, he would not be easily noticed.
Even more so, what was Ethan’s state like? He was just a novice among transcendentalists who had not even reached the rank of lieutenant even if he played well. That’s why I was very surprised when I hunted the tyrant.
‘I knew it was special, but…’
I didn’t know it would stand out to this extent. Who would have thought that he would immediately recognize the body he had taken with so much effort.
Like darkness sinking into an abyss, the armor covering the duke’s entire body was radiating an ominous energy.
The momentum seemed to have increased twice since the last time I visited the Land of Fire. Considering that his level had reached the limit of what humans can achieve, the speed of his growth was nothing short of surprising.
Lorotia had a hunch.
If you treat the peacock the way you would deal with a mediocre brat, you could get seriously hurt.
This was not a land of fire that could draw in heat, and the body belonged to a spirit priest who had coldly criticized it with the comment of half a penny. Crucially, the current duke was radiating a force that could not be ignored.
“It’s a shame. “I was going to finish the calculation with this.”
“If it weren’t for this, I would have listened to your request. If you give me my body back right now, I will pretend it never happened. So…”
“No, you can’t do that. “I’d be in a lot of trouble if I did that.”
“Isn’t it okay if I accomplish what you want to do?”
“Do you know what I want? “Are you going to do me any favors?”
“That can’t be possible.”
Lorotia coldly sneered at Ethan, who was silent. I will do you a favor. Speaking out words was an extremely easy act compared to the meaning they contained.
If I was going to do any favors, I should have just accepted her offer. But what was the result?
The relationship between the two reached a catastrophe. Lorotia looked at Ethan and sighed.
“…I will ask you for the last time. “I’m leaving. Wouldn’t it be better if you let me go like this?”
“…ha. Do you really need to see blood?”
I was reluctant.
Lorothia had a crush on the duke.
It wasn’t rational, but for a human being, it was the same emotion as looking at a beloved pet. That’s why I didn’t want to bump into it. In the Land of Fire, it would not have been easy to subdue Ethan without getting hurt in his current state.
If there is a fight, no matter who it is, there will definitely be blood. It was a very unpleasant thing. It was also something that wasn’t planned at all.
At those words, the Duke simply remained silent.
“It looks like you’ve completely made up your mind.”
“There is only one room for negotiation. “You are asking me for a favor with your body.”
“It’s such a shame.”
A cold smile slowly appeared on Lorotia’s lips.
“I thought we could be pretty good partners.”
I remembered what the Duke said in the Land of Fire. If you have anything to ask for, please let me know.
I definitely said that.
Human words cannot be trusted.
Ysera’s heart was pounding. The mana that flowed from the entire body began to form a shape. A huge, blazing flame as if it were a flame giant.
The appearance was similar to when Ysera descended on Ignis a long time ago.
However, the power and heat are now incomparably higher. It was natural. Even though he has a weak body, isn’t the person who wields that power a monarch?
Moreover, Ysera’s body was in a much more advanced state than before the contract.
If we consider that the reason why a spiritist tries to make a contract with a high-ranking spirit is because it is directly related to strength…
‘It must have changed close to the state of transcendence.’
Even if the current Ysera does not summon a monarch, she will be in a state where she can exert power close to that of a transcendental. The monarch is directly controlling such a body. It was an opponent that could never be taken lightly.
‘I don’t know if I’m above or below the tyrant.’
The direct momentum was similar for both. What is important, then, is how precisely the monarch can handle his or her power.
-Whoa, this makes me nervous. I can feel the heat from here.
I wasn’t even close, but I could already feel the heat. Ethan wasn’t the only one who felt the warmer air. Because the sword and even the ink dragon armor were glowing red.
‘It ends in a short fight.’
Vibration type and acceptance.
This is an opportunity to test the technical system you have been practicing consistently.
The heat flowing from his body was steadily increasing in line with the heat radiating from Lorotia. This was because it was using a vibration method.
It wasn’t just the Shingeom and Inkryonggap that began to change due to the changed temperature. The ground I stepped on was slowly melting from the high heat, the trees were starting to catch fire, and even the hard stones were turning mushy.
“…That’s pretty good, Duke.”
“This is probably the only time I can talk leisurely.”
When it breaks through four thousand vibrations.
Mana was implemented.
Mana was overlaid on the ink-colored armor. It was an instant before the tyrant’s gigantic arms were realized. Lorotia’s face hardened when she saw that. The technique of vibrating the mana in the body to increase strength was an amazing enough technique.
You mix it with the power of a dragon.
It wasn’t a mixture of the power of one person or another. That is the body of the ruler. Lorothia’s eyesight noticed that fact right away.
‘It’s dangerous if you get hit directly.’
Shingeom and inkryonggap.
The Duke’s power, actively utilizing the two divine powers, was forcing open the wall of transcendence. With that level of power, you would have to be able to block it head-on if you had the main body in the Land of Fire.
She suddenly felt sad.
Just a moment ago, I was convinced that even if we were going to see each other’s blood, there was no way it would be us. Therefore, I thought it would be enough to suppress them appropriately and then escape the duchy.
it was obvious that if he was dealt with moderately, he would be defeated miserably. Of course, being defeated did not mean that the monarch himself would face extinction. All I had to do was leave my body behind and return to the spirit world.
However, the problem was that Lorotia had no intention of going back smoothly.
Even if it results in completely crushing the duke.
That’s why I felt sad.
I didn’t know that I would have to experience a permanent separation from my beloved pet.
“It makes me so sad.”
The price you pay for giving me these feelings will never be light.
Lorotia, thinking to herself, opened her mouth slightly.
The breath of fire flowing out.
A weapon appeared between the burning blue flames. A monarch’s exclusive weapon created long ago by numerous dwarven chieftains.
It was a flame whip filled with Ardenheite, the metal of the gods. It was a special weapon that had the ferocious power to tear limbs apart just by touching the flesh, and the heat that penetrated through the wounds burned all of the internal organs.
Is it because they use the same metal?
A subtle resonance was occurring between Auroica and the divine sword.
―That… is a better-made weapon than mine. No, to be exact, it is a weapon with more than twice as much Ardenheite added as this new sword.
Bbangi responded in a grumpy tone, as if his pride was hurt.
-It’s the monarch’s weapon, so it’s probably worth it.
The flame whip blazed strongly. The appearance of flying blue flames was reminiscent of a poisonous snake. A poisonous snake with a vicious venom that can instantly subdue a large animal with a single injection.
―Master, I don’t think I can hold out for that long… but
our strength and heat were similar. However, the quality of the weapons differed.
It was a new sword created by Muradni, who was said to be the best blacksmith in the world, but that vicious flame whip was a more perfect weapon than that.
It was a huge shock to Bbang, who thought he was the best.
-Try not to bump into each other.
―Ugh… I understand.
It was already a foregone conclusion that a battle would take place. So what can we do? If you don’t intend to end your life here, you have no choice but to hold on as long as you can.
‘The thread must be cut.’
Eyes that penetrate the essence.
Ethan used him to see Ysera’s soul. Her soul was dyed purple. It was resignation. This is a resignation that is more serious than expected.
It was clear that Lorotia had stolen her body and tampered with her soul. Otherwise, there is no way the color of the soul would change that much in a short period of time.
Ethan’s purpose was simple. In reality, cutting the body was just a meaningless act. If that were the case, the monarch would have escaped to the spirit world, and only Ysera, cut in half, would be left in reality.
So, I had to cut out Lorotia’s magic that was tightly binding my soul like a spider’s web. It wasn’t easy, but I wasn’t confident.
Because he had experience. When rescuing Theron who was being controlled by a warlock.
Even back then, there was a time when, instead of cutting off the body, only the magic power was cut to erase the dark magic power.
The method of rescuing Ysera was not much different from that. The only thing that has changed is the level of difficulty.
He ran towards Lorotia. The divine sword filled with the power of a tyrant flowing through my grasp trembled like crazy.
The sword strike with all its might was aimed at Lorotia’s waist.
For an instant, the sword became transparent.
Spiritualization, a technique revealed in the past in the mountains. The exceptional mana control allowed him to embody not only the directly related physical body but also the indirectly connected divine sword as a spiritual body.
A sword that can cut through even fictional concepts. If you just cut down Lorotia’s mana, you will be able to rescue Ysera. However, the sword only barely grazed the clothes.
Lorotia spoke coldly and swung her whip. The flaccid whip suddenly became sharp like a spear blade. He immediately raised his sword. The wide sword surface began to block all directions.
A huge shock wave exploded along with the heat.
“It’s time to get punished!”
With a lively voice, the tip of the whip split into hundreds of pieces.
Heat rushing in from all directions.
There was not a single direction to avoid. It wasn’t an attack of a nature that could be escaped through a spiritual body. Lorotia’s mana will hold even the spiritual body in an instant. The entire area exploded with a scorching whip.
