Chapter 71. Mage’s Sword (1)
Weekly Chapter (6/6)
She didn’t expect her head to explode.
Blood droplets splattered onto Sylverine’s face.
She had killed a hundred people, but she hadn’t taken any damage.
She was so absorbed in her thoughts that she didn’t even try to wipe her face.
There was no evidence other than her blood-soaked silver hair. This could not be used as evidence to link her to any family.
But at least she knew that those responsible could mercilessly dispose of their blood relatives for their own purposes.
She returned to the place where the carriages were located.
Her curiosity about Damien’s past occupied her mind.
And the person in Eternia as well.
Her physical fatigue from the battle did not weigh her down as much as her mental fatigue caused by the countless thoughts that arose in her mind.
Damien got out of the carriage when he saw Sylverine.
When she saw Damien, the thoughts that tormented her disappeared.
Sylverine hugged him.
“You kept your promise. Well done.”
Damien, who didn’t know what to do, raised his arms like a stone statue.
His arms went around Sylverine’s waist. Posted only on NovelUtopia.com
Then he slightly raised his head.
“I was worried.”
“The most useless thing in the world is to worry about me.”
“…What happened in the town?”
“First, let’s go.”
She slowly released her embrace.
They climbed into the carriage.
When they took their seats, the carriage moved again.
The place that the fire had devastated was now quiet.
The carriages entered the town.
The ashes were still emitting smoke.
The smoky smell filtered through the carriage door.
When Damien’s gaze strayed to the window, she closed the curtains.
“You’re still young.”
A cry came from the carriage behind.
It was Lilia.
It was a traumatic experience to look at hundreds of charred corpses.
Damien would probably have to kill as many people as there were demonic beasts in his life. But there was no need for him to know so soon, at least as long as she was around, he could continue to be a child.
“There’s a family that covets you. I don’t know the reason. But now that I’ve shown an example, they should calm down for a while.”
Damien calmly nodded as if he expected it.
Sylverine didn’t dare to explain in detail about this matter, at least not until before the entrance exam. She didn’t want to upset his emotions.
Damien was to focus entirely on Eternia.
He pulled a handkerchief from his pocket.
“Wipe the blood off.”
She sighed as she wiped the blood from her face.
Unfortunately, it wasn’t all over.
Sylverine only extended the time until the next offensive.
They would be back. She didn’t understand why Damien was a danger to them.
Surely, their next attack would be more complex.
And they would do it when Sylverine was absent.
But she wasn’t that worried.
Damien would be much stronger by then.
An extensive river separated the mountain range.
The carriages proceeded along a road beside the river.
Occasionally, they came across carriages with knights as their escorts.
Each carriage bore the seal of a prestigious family.
There were also many merchants with carts.
Sylverine looked out the window at the scenery.
“We are already in Eternia’s territorial zone.”
“I didn’t expect Eternia to be located in such a remote area.”
