Chapter 76. Fate (2)
Weekly Chapter (5/7)
A masked man with dark red hair was fighting with two robbers.
Another robber was on the floor with a broken ankle. He looked like he was about to die.
The robbers attacked with steel swords, but the man in the mask skillfully defended himself with a wooden sword.
How could he fight with that sword?
Normally, steel swords would cut through wooden swords.
The knights pushed through the crowd.
The robbers attacked the masked man with more intensity.
The crowd screamed every time the steel swords passed close to the masked man’s body.
This man was quite competent. The robbers’ faces gradually distorted because their offensive did not work.
Lilith, who was behind the robbers, recited a spell.
A robber’s feet froze to the floor.
The man used the reverse side of his sword to strike the robber’s ankle.
The robber screamed because his screw broke.
The last robber knew he was doomed to lose, so he fled with the loot.
The man threw the wooden sword back as if it had eyes in the back of his head.
The sword accurately stabbed the robber’s thigh.
The robber screamed as he fell to the floor.
The knights were bewildered.
The situation had been resolved.
An unidentified man subdued the three robbers who had stolen Lilith’s Centennial Wand.
The man slowly walked towards the robber to retrieve his sword.
Lilith also quickly retrieved the box with the Centennial Wand.
Fortunately, it was still there.
Otherwise, she might have failed the Eternia entrance exam.
She approached the masked man.
“Thank you. Our Eglius family will remember this moment…”
But the man ignored her and walked past her. Posted only on NovelUtopia.com
At that moment, Lilith had only one thought.
Is he deaf?
A robber shouted resentfully.
“I’ll kill you!”
A knight placed his sword against his neck.
“Shut up! Robber!”
The masked man briefly glanced at the robber.
Then, Lilith realized that he wasn’t deaf, he had simply ignored her.
He is a rude person. How dare he ignore me?
Lilith’s pride was hurt.
But she couldn’t say anything because he had helped her.
He stood in a place where there was soil on the floor. Then he looked at the broken flower pot.
The mask did not allow her to look at his expression, but he looked angry that the flower pot was broken.
Perhaps it had been broken when the robbers pushed passersby.
Lilith’s expression twisted slightly.
Is that the reason?
She couldn’t believe he’d ignored her over a flower pot.
He treated her worse than a flower pot.
Besides, there was only soil in it.
He could simply buy another flower pot.
But one of the most valuable events of his life would be to receive gratitude from a prominent family.
Suddenly, she noticed that he was wearing a ring with the seal of Eternia.
Lilith’s eyes widened.
She suppressed her pride and approached him again.
“Hmm! Don’t worry, we can make it up to you. Tell me your name…”
The man didn’t even pretend to hear her. She seemed invisible to him.
Then, he left as if he had nothing to do here.
Lilith looked at him in bewilderment.
She felt humiliated when an important item was stolen from her, but now a stranger twice blatantly ignored her.
Never had a man treated her this way before she came to Rigveda.
Not even princes, who had higher status than Lilith, treated her this way.
She felt ashamed.
She called out to the leader of the knights.
“Why did you call me?”
She pointed in the direction the man had gone.
“Please, locate that masked man and find out his identity.”
