Chapter 26. Medicinal Herbs (6)
Translator: Atlas / Editor: Ambrtrn
“On the horse, he was in her arms. It was adorable.”
The knights, who began to laugh, added,
“Did she raise him as a baby?”
“It’s possible. Perhaps a noble family asked her to take him as her student. It’s a valid reason for her to treat him with such care.”
“Only those who are geniuses receive letters of recommendation. He doesn’t look like a genius to me.”
“How do you know if you haven’t seen his abilities?”
Volk replied arrogantly,
“It’s obvious to the naked eye.”
Joyce was somewhat in agreement with his words. She decided to write a letter of recommendation for the boy without searching for other talents.
She might have gotten a request that was improper.
Berelman tapped Joyce on the shoulder.
“Try to show your ability this time. Others may notice you.”
It seemed like a simple comment, but it implied something else.
This subjugation could be an opportunity for Joyce. Maybe she would change her mind if he displayed his amazing abilities to everyone.
Joyce was confident he might have a chance.
“It’s not easy to fight a ghoul.”
“Of course, do you think that boy could kill a ghoul?”
It was best for two knights to cooperate to kill a ghoul. It was very difficult to face a ghoul with a sword because they did have very tough flesh and spikes on their backs like a hedgehog.
They had so much strength in their arms that they could tear people apart with their bare hands. Many knights never wielded a sword again because some ghoul tore off their limbs.
Joyce could take down a ghoul single-handedly. That was impossible for boys his age.
If Sylverine’s student had lived in Wiesel, he would never have seen a ghoul.
He believed he had the advantage. He just had to bide his time.
Popper waited at a large intersection in the center of town. His expression became darker as he heard more reports from the groups that came back.
It looked like reinforcement troops would have to be called.
“No demonic beast is easy. Big or small, strong or weak, they are all difficult.”
“Especially when civilians are involved.”
When a demonic beast appears, a team is formed to subjugate it.
It would be wonderful if the reality was as easy as it seemed in theory.
The mere rumor that a demonic beast had caused unrest in this area would be dire. Wiesel’s reputation as a place protected from demonic beasts reduced the cost in escorts for merchants, who used it as a trade route. The town grew rapidly because it was at the center of the trade route.
If numerous troops were stationed to form a defensive line, trade would also be reduced by fear, leading to a decrease in tax revenue.
That was the reason they wanted to finish the work quickly.
There was something Damien wanted to check. Now was the right time, because their search group had finished their work, and were waiting for reports from the others. Posted only on NovelUtopia.com
“I want to check something somewhere else.”
It would be nice if the reality was as easy as it seemed in theory.
Sylverine was thoughtful for a moment.
“I’m going to a strange place.”
She stared at him with her arms crossed.
“You don’t seem to want to tell me. I don’t know what you’re thinking, but you can go.”
“It could be irrelevant. I’ll return shortly.”
“Wait a minute.”
Sylverine pulled something out of her robe as he was about to leave.
It was a small iron ball.
He examined it closely as he received it.
“This is a Stitch, a magical item used as a carrier pigeon. Throw it into the air if trouble arises. That will tell me your location.”
“How could I do that if I’m inside a house?”
“You can break a window pane.”
She meant he could throw it out the window.
