I Became a Dark Knight the Empress Is Obsessed With chapter 23
23 – Veil of Corruption – (2)
West hallway of the conference hall.
A ghastly scene was unfolding there.
“Hey! help me!”
A monster in front of you, a dead-end wall behind you.
The aristocrat with an impressive curly mustache fell backwards while avoiding the monster. The monster, reminiscent of a slime, leaned heavily toward the fallen man and prepared to swing his fist.
The nobleman closed his eyes and shrank.
Having seen that, Cora blocked his way and swung her sword horizontally.
A solid line formed on the monster’s body, and then it collapsed with a muddy sound.
The corpse that flowed down like liquid disappeared as if it soaked into the floor.
Cora drew her sword and caught her breath. Behind him, an aristocrat crouched down, trembling like a child.
It was quite disgusting to see the yellow liquid pouring out of my crotch, but I said it without showing it.
“I’m fine now.”
The noble opened his eyes slightly, and when he saw Cora, he freaked out again.
However, it seems that he soon realized that he was an ally of the Royal Guard. The aristocrat’s face turns bright from the relief that his life was spared.
“… … Uhm?”
However, this soon turned into a subtle expression.
It was because he realized that Cora was not even a knight, but a soldier.
Sighing, Cora turned around.
Is it the third already? Every person who saves me is a family, so there is no sense of accomplishment. Still, it’s a lifesaver, but can’t you give me a little thanks?
Of course, Cora was just doing her job as a Guardsman for the sake of a sense of accomplishment. Still, I can’t help but feel sad.
“Others have been evacuated to the central hall, please go.”
“… … uh, uh yes.”
The aristocrat stood up awkwardly, grabbed the crotch where urine was dripping, and ran.
Cora watched and wiped her parched lips.
“If I had known it would be like this, I would have done farming as my seniors said.”
After the National Day disaster, everyone put down their swords without saying who was first. After all, anyone would have run away if they had seen that.
However, Cora remained. With nothing else to do, money urgently needed, and a mediocre surplus, Cora had no choice. Because there are many people to feed.
But when I think about it now, I have no regrets.
I hope it will happen again this time!
Even the church’s attack without fail!
I thought it would be okay just because I had to patrol the conference hall, but Cora’s expectations were put to shame.
Suddenly, a curtain shrouded the conference hall, and liquid monsters began to erupt from the walls and floors. Fortunately, the cold weapon without mana seemed to work, so even a mere soldier, Cora, could easily deal with it.
“I should thank the driver.”
In fact, now he was even grateful to the knight who had beaten him so badly at the training ground.
If it had not been for that experience, he would have been eaten by the monster by now.
not too nervous The monster’s attack was dozens of times slower than the knight’s.
Cora raised her sword again. The break is now over.
A creepy monster began to rise from beyond. It was because he was even trying to target a nobleman who had hardened right in front of him.
Cora rushed over and thrust her sword into the monster’s back.
The blade of the sword went in with an unpleasant sound. Cora had intended to just tilt the sack and pour out his internal organs, but the moment she exerted all her strength, she felt as though she was blocked by a stone.
It was harder than expected.
The sword didn’t even come off as if it had gotten stuck somewhere.
Looking back, this monster was bigger and more terrifying than the ones I had dealt with before.
“Grook? Is it wrong?”
The monster roared as it looked back at the statue of the world that had the knife stuck in its back.
“Aha, hahahahaha… … .”
I laughed out of my own self, and I evaded it by almost sticking my fist to the ground.
Of course, I had no choice but to let go of the sword.
The wind pressure blows hard against the head. The sound of the helmet being crushed was heard. The destructive power that makes the mind dizzy. The wall where the monster’s fist had been lodged was crushed like a chiseled ore.
Cora lay on her stomach and wept.
“I should have been farming as expected!”
The monster was calm to such a plea. He raised his fist and slammed it into the defenseless Cora’s back.
oh, you’re dead Cora had a hunch.
But the next moment, to put that thought to shame, a silver flash passed directly over Cora’s head.
And that was it.
The monster stopped moving and moved backwards, unaware of the change that had taken place in itself.
The monster fell to its knees and stopped moving.
It is dead.
“… … Hiccup.”
Seeing this, Cora burst into tears.
Grabbing my head, I thanked God as I prostrated myself in an awkward position.
Oh, you live.
“Hey, are you okay?”
And a familiar voice from behind.
Cora only slightly raised her head.
The gray-haired knight smiled awkwardly at himself.
It was Fried, the bastard of the world, the crazy knight, but there was never a time when he was as happy as this.
“Corra. Are you not hurt?”
“This, for now.”
I took Fried’s outstretched hand and stood up. But I couldn’t keep my balance, so I stumbled for a while.
“Were you fighting here alone?”
A sly compliment. Cora wasn’t happy at all.
“What about Milia?”
Cora pointed to the other side of the hallway, her hand still trembling.
Fred looked in that direction and nodded.
“thanks. For now, you too must evacuate. Because I saved everyone here.”
“Uh, um. That… … What about the driver?”
“I’ll have to help Milia.”
Watching Fried shrug, Cora pouted.
yes. I bet you do. I hope you are strong.
“ruler! for a moment!”
At that moment, the aristocratic man who had been watching Cora’s struggles while lying on the floor raised his head and shouted.
Until just now, he seemed to have died, but when the situation is over, his triumphant smile is very hateful.
“Su, Guardian Knight! For now, wouldn’t it be better to stick together and escort the members of our council!”
“Hey, you’re a knight! If you are a Knight of the Royal Guard, it is natural for you to protect the Senate Council! You’re not going to leave me with that soldier, are you? Didn’t you see that soldier defeated by the monster too!”
Upon closer inspection, it was the head of the Council of Elvendel.
According to Cora, he was one of the people at the meeting who strongly advocated the abolition of the Ayren dynasty.
Isn’t it quite funny to ask for help from the royal guards while proposing to destroy the imperial family? Cora felt like a chimney wanting to say something, but she held it back.
Instead, the knight standing next to him did not hold back.
“What are you talking about, garbage?”
With the sound of a pair, the face of the head of the council turned around.
It was Fried who covered his ears.
Cora screamed in surprise, but he didn’t stop.
Without any hesitation, he trampled on the head of the head of the council president with his leggings.
Cora, who had only dreamed of suppressing her proud nose in her imagination, was horrified to see Fried put it into practice.
No matter how much you are a guardian knight, you trample on the chief of one of the six major cities of the empire? Aren’t you afraid of repercussions?
“Don’t you notice? Why is Malponsae such an emo?”
The head of the council, who had his face buried in the carpet, couldn’t even answer.
“If they do you a favor, just say yes and accept it.”
It’s also mannani.
Eventually, Fried stepped out.
The chairman of the council did not even make a sound, just holding his swollen cheek with a bewildered expression.
Nosebleeds trickled down his throat.
As soon as Fried raised his hand, the chairperson ran to the other side of the hallway screaming like a girl.
Cora let out a dry laugh at the unsightly figure.
“hahahaha. f*ked me.”
It seemed certain that the seal was cut.
The knight laughed and said to Cora.
“This is why I hate tall guys.”
From my point of view, he is also a high-ranking person.
Of course, it didn’t come out of my mouth.
Fried put his sword into the scabbard, then took a breath and released his leg.
“You know, but the situation is very bad.”
“Don’t die like that. If you can’t save these guys, just run away. Life is precious.”
Freed picked up Korra’s sword from the ground and handed it to her. When I received it with both hands, the monster’s bodily fluids clung to my hands.
It was gross, but I didn’t show it.
Instead, he bowed his head.
“No, there is nothing to be thankful for. Rather, I am grateful.”
Fried patted Cora on the shoulder.
“Anyway, have a hard time.”
Finally, Fried raised a fist in greeting and thumped Cora in the chest.
“… … Well?”
At that moment, Fried squinted at the strange feeling.
“… … ah.”
Cora felt a cold sweat break out.
Freed’s gaze moved from Cora’s chest to his hand. Then he turned to Cora again.
“You can’t… … .”
“thank you! I’ll just go!”
Cora was afraid to get caught, so she hurried away.
He was held tightly in a sticky black bosom.
