Chapter 62. Gathering (4)
Weekly Chapter (3/6)
Bologna pointed to a corner of the training camp, where several people had gathered. There seemed to be an interesting event going on there.
Occasionally, applause could be heard.
“Do you want to take a look?”
In one corner of the training field, a small competition was being held.
Fights were the best entertainment for the gatherings organized by the Order.
In the center of the crowd, two men were fighting fiercely with wooden swords. They had rolled up the sleeves of their shirtsleeves.
The audience marveled every time they exchanged attacks.
The knights were also smiling as they fought.
One knight’s wooden sword flew out quickly after a heavy blow.
“Three victories in a row for Jullien!'”
Felix, who was standing in the crowd, stared at the boy who had arrived.
The latter had not noticed Felix’s presence in the least. A girl he was familiar with was with the boy. Posted only on NovelUtopia.com
Nancy was interested in him, but changed when Damien arrived.
She didn’t even look at Felix anymore.
Damien was an unwanted guest. He shouldn’t be in this place. But because he had the support of the leader, he thought he was the hero of this place.
He doesn’t deserve to be here.
Felix explained to Nancy the phony what Damien was.
When they investigated the aftermath of the battle against the ghouls in the basement, they discovered that his sword abilities were deficient, and Damien used an enchanted sword that his teacher had given him.
But now it seemed that Nancy’s thoughts had changed.
She spoke cheerfully to Damien.
Felix gritted his teeth.
He wanted to prove he was right. And he would do it like a knight.
When the presenter shouted, Felix grabbed the wooden sword on the ground.
He was standing opposite Jullien, who had won three fights in a row.
These were not serious fights. A wooden sword could not cause a serious injury.
Felix was confident that he would succeed.
The fight began.
The scales tipped toward Felix early.
The show was so exciting that the crowd cheered.
Finally, Jullien conceded defeat.
The applause from the spectators spread.
“Are there any challengers?”
No one came forward because Felix showed overwhelming strength.
The viewers’ eyes all converged on one place in an instant.
The crowd began to turn away from one boy.
There stood Damien, Nancy and Bologna.
They assumed he would be the next challenger.
The murmurs began.
The spectators expected him to perform well.
Damien looked worried. He didn’t move immediately, but the stares from the crowd forced him into the combat area.
Felix grinned from ear to ear. Things happened exactly as he expected.
He was a head taller than Damien, so he would have the advantage.
Also, the fight would be with wooden swords, so Damien couldn’t use his enchanted sword.
Now his poor swordsmanship would be exposed.
The murmur of the crowd grew louder.
“I’m going to watch!”
As the news that Damien would fight spread, all the people at the banquet quickly crowded into the combat area.
The crowd was almost three times bigger than before.
His eyes sparkled with anticipation.
The presenter changed the rules when he saw that so many people had come forward.
“You have to win three out of five rounds!”
He wanted to prolong the showdown as much as possible.
Damien, who grabbed the wooden sword on the ground, checked its condition.
Why is he looking at that sword so much?
Damien took off his tailcoat and handed it to Nancy.
Finally, he faced Felix.
