Weekly Chapter (5/5)
“Griffin blood is readily available. I won’t ask you what you plan to do with it, but I hope I can see the result. Hahaha.”
“Thank you. I’ll do my best to live up to expectations.”
He felt pressured.
The knights left the house.
One knight approached Popper.
“Subjugation has been completed.”
At that moment, someone approached with new clothes for him.
“You all did a great job.”
Popper turned away but then said something as if he had forgotten.
“I’m planning a social event and would like you to attend.”
“How could I refuse? I’d be honored.”
He felt wretched. He really preferred pushing logs or killing ghouls.
Popper left with the knights. Two knights did not follow him.
Joyce and a big knight who looked his age.
When their eyes met, Joyce left after a slight bow.
The big man, who glared at him, followed Joyce.
He was too busy to worry about unimportant things today.
Soon, he was out the gate wearing the new clothes.
The knights headed toward the wide intersection in the center of town.
And Sylverine was waiting for him on a horse.
It confirmed his suspicions.
She had probably deliberately disappeared.
Sylverine approached him.
“Good work, my student.”
“You’re a little late.”
Sylverine’s mouth curved up slightly.
“Get on the horse first.”
As soon as he got on the horse, they followed the knights.
He couldn’t contain his curiosity.
“Did you know everything?”
“The ghouls were in that house.”
“Yes. I expected that. Because there was residual magic there.”
“But I didn’t expect you to kill almost all the ghouls alone.”
He was speechless.
“Surely the order of knights recognized your feat. What was your compensation?”
She asked as if she knew nothing.
“I asked for money.”
Sylverine released the reins and pinched his cheeks tightly.
“Do you tell lies to your master?”
It looked like she had pretended. It scared him a little that she knew so much.
“My ears are good.”
I’m finished if she finds out I stole the research records. It’s better if I keep it a secret for a while.
Sylverine finally stopped. His cheeks were flushed.
“I have to learn to ride a horse quickly.”
“I don’t think you’ll be able to escape my arms anytime soon.”
Humans were adaptable creatures, so he became more and more comfortable on the horse with Sylverine. He had to get away from her before he fully adapted, since this could not continue at the Academy. Posted only on NovelUtopia.com
The knights lined up at the wide intersection in the center of town.
The townspeople watched them from some distance.
They also stopped some distance away from the knights.
Poppers publicly announced that the subjugation was over.
They would now return. Only the knights necessary for the town would stay here.
The townspeople murmured as they watched them.
He could hear them talking about him.
It seemed the rumors had spread.
“You’ve become famous.”
“I think you exaggerate too much.”
He felt embarrassed.
“It’s a peaceful place, these incidents are very important. Just accept it.”
Sylverine was not uncomfortable with the commotion.
Then they headed toward Sylverine’s mansion in the moonlight.
He was looking up at the stars when she spoke.
“The Alchemy Society has no alchemist named Zverev on any list.”
“What do you mean?”
“Research is only protected if the person registers with the Society, so perhaps this alchemist did not because he has a sordid past. Or, it’s possible that the name Zverev is an alias.”
“Do you plan to do more research on him, master?”
Sylverine exhaled a long sigh.
“You don’t have to worry right now. There’s another matter that’s more important.”
“Did anything else happen…?”
“I received a reply to the letter of recommendation I sent to the Academy.”
“The Academy will send people to Wiesel to evaluate you.”
