Chapter 75. Fate (1)
Weekly Chapter (4/7)
This sword would not be a problem if he moderately supplied it with mana.
He would like to try it, but there was no place nearby where he could wield his sword.
He had money left over, so he came up with several ideas.
He thought he could pretend he had spent the money, but then decided not to. Practically that would be like stealing, so his reputation would be ruined if she found out.
Besides, even that money wasn’t his. It would be outrageous to cheat a benefactor who confidently hands over a large amount of money.
“But what’s the way?”
He wanted to go to the Magic Society because that was where Sylverine was, but he didn’t know where it was.
He was like a lost child in an unfamiliar town.
He didn’t think she would be upset because he bought food.
First, he walked in the direction Sylverine’s carriage pulled away.
Sylverine told him that he would be visiting this place quite often, so it would be beneficial for him to get to know the town. He could take time to look around.
And when he didn’t know the way, he would ask passersby.
Even though he was wearing a mask, people paid no attention to him.
In the street there were also many people with their faces covered, and since many potions were brewed, there were many people walking with medicinal herbs in their hands.
Fortunately, his appearance was not unusual in Rigveda.
Knights in armor from head to toe, nobles, mages with cone hats, hawkers, beggars, students… they could all look at each other in one place.
There were too many different types of people in one place.
To him it seemed like another world.
He wondered if there were other children nearby who wanted to enter Eternia.
His mask allowed him to watch the others’ faces discreetly. Posted only on NovelUtopia.com
Suddenly, the crowd became noisy, as if there was a commotion a few steps ahead. He wondered what had happened.
The street cleared as the people moved aside.
“Get them! Get them!”
People were running in his direction.
Again someone shouted from afar.
The knights ran after them, but they could not catch up with them.
They were not simple robbers. They broke through a defensive formation of 20 people.
It happened in an instant.
Three knights who could be considered elite were seriously injured. They were unable to react properly due to the surprise ambush, but it was clear that the robbers were competent in swordsmanship.
They took a rare artifact, Centennial Wand.
It seemed as if they had planned it ever since they learned that Lilith would be staying in Rigveda because of the Eternia entrance exams.
The Centennial Wand was important for her to pass the entrance exam.
Lilith hiked up her dress to chase after the robbers, but that wasn’t enough.
She had rarely run for so long in her life. She also found it difficult to make her way through the crowd.
This might prevent her admission to Eternia.
“Haa, haa, haa.”
She ran as fast as she could, but her distance from the robbers did not narrow.
The knights escorting her caught up with her.
They had never seen her run with such haste.
“Lady, are you right?”
“Yes, haa, quick, arrest them.”
The knight leader ordered.
The knights quickly ran into the alleys on both sides.
“We’ll probably have to block all the exits out of town.”
That was more important to Lilith than anything else.
Suddenly, the clash of swords echoed through the streets. The knights turned their heads in surprise in the direction of the sound.
The robbers had fled in that direction.
It wasn’t very far.
Lilith ran that way without thinking.
“Miss, it’s dangerous!”
The knights followed her.
Some people congregated in the street.
The crowd shouted every time the swords clashed.
Lilith pushed her way through the crowd.
