I Became a Dark Knight the Empress Is Obsessed With chapter 3
3 – National Foundation Day – (3)
It must have been.
The girl in front of her was the protagonist of Raising the Empress, Lyncia Ayren.
As if Lynchia also recognized me, her eyes mixed with fear were clearly colored with relief.
The little mouth is sweet.
“Sir Iscobal… ?”
Eventually, a stream of tears flowed down.
Transparent tears came down from her green eyes and eventually became a flood.
It deserves it. Because I was suddenly caught up in terrorism. I’m on the verge of dying in panic, but what about Lynchia, who is only about 15 at most?
As I suddenly ran into the main character of the game, I had no idea how to respond.
So, in the end, I had no choice but to stare at her awkwardly.
At that moment, a ringing sound was heard.
It was a familiar sound, heard several times while playing the game.
[Prelude – National Foundation Day]
– Clear condition: Survival of Lyncia Ayren
“This… … .”
In the meantime, I didn’t notice because I lost my reason, but I realized it only after seeing this notification window.
Raising the Empress consists of a total of eight chapters from the beginning to the end.
And now it is the prologue scene of Raising the Empress.
At the National Foundation Day festival, the terrorism of the Church of Evil takes place, a situation that is truly catastrophic.
The Empress, the only survivor of this terror, has to go through eight chapters. In the process, a near-three-digit death crisis hits her, but she finally survives, undergoes a coming-of-age ceremony, and becomes an empress.
What if the empress died in the process?
Of course, it goes straight to the dead end.
In the game, it is not simply expressed that the empress is dead. systemically as well. Also by setting.
According to the settings in the game, the emperor of the empire had the power to protect the present world from extraterrestrials.
This ability is only possessed by direct descendants of the emperor, and it is an ability that can only be acquired by going up to the throne after undergoing a coming-of-age ceremony.
So, the cessation of the line of emperors meant the end of the world.
It is also the place where the foreign church committed terrorism aiming for that.
This is true of every dead end where the Empress dies.
Since there is no one suitable to inherit the power of the emperor, interference from another dimension begins, and an enormous amount of foreign monsters and troops destroy the empire.
It was a one-illustrated description, but I have seen that ending scene countless times where the horizon becomes a sea of fire. That’s why it was definitely left in my mind.
This world is literally a fish on the cutting board, whose fate depends on the survival of the Empress, Lyncia Ayren.
From my point of view, possessed by this damn game, I also say that the Empress must never die.
And one of the most necessary helpers in achieving the survival ending in the game is the guardian knight, Freed.
yes. It’s the character I possessed.
Fried is no different from the bodyguard of the empress. The most common dead end, the assassination ending, could be prevented, so it was a character that was unconditionally necessary and a strong support to see the ending.
Without him, the empress would go straight to the dead end unconditionally.
Take a deep breath.
After organizing my thoughts, I looked at the girl in front of me.
Platinum hair and green eyes. She is a girl with a beautiful appearance that seems to have been carefully refined by the Creator.
At the same time, he was the protagonist of this world.
What if I just ran away leaving Lincia here?
Perhaps Lyncia will die unconditionally. If that happens, it’s like going straight to the dead end.
Even in the prologue of the actual game, the empress survives by escaping into the imperial castle with the help of the guardian knight Fried and other protagonists.
[Prelude – National Foundation Day]
– Clear condition: Survival of Lyncia Ayren
A translucent notification window appeared before my eyes.
That definitely supported my thoughts.
I turned my head to her.
He got down on one knee and held out his hand.
“… Princess, now is the time to take care of yourself.”
As Guardian Knight Freed, I must protect the Empress.
That was the first condition for this world to exist.
It didn’t take long for Lynchia’s crying to subside.
As befits the main character of this game, Lyncia shrugged off her knees and stood up with my support.
His eyes were still shaking and his legs were shaking. But his will seemed firm.
“Sir Fried… Maybe Obama… .”
At that, I shook my head.
“okay… … .”
“The church aimed at the imperial family.”
“… … .”
“That’s why, even more so, the princess must survive.”
“Yes… … .”
He was worried that he would despair at the news of his father’s death, but it seemed that Lincia had already anticipated it to some extent.
“Let’s go. There is no time.”
It is urgent to leave here at once.
I didn’t know when the snake eyes that I had bullied earlier would come.
Saying that, I tried to drag Lyncia away, but she grabbed my ring finger.
Turning her head, she saw Lyncia with quivering pupils and wriggling lips.
It seemed like he was trying to say something, but it didn’t seem to go the way I wanted.
I didn’t have time, so I put my other hand on the one she was holding and said as calmly as possible.
“If you have something to say, I will hear it later. Now we must get out of here as quickly as possible. It can be dangerous, so you have to be careful.”
Saying that, Lyncia reluctantly shook her head up and down.
On that road, I led her through the alleyway.
It is a maze-like alleyway in the capital city. I didn’t know the detailed route, but the spire of the imperial palace was very high anyway, so I could see it well even from inside the alley. If you continue along that road, you will arrive at the imperial palace.
As long as we get to the imperial palace, the guards will protect us. Even the members of the church wouldn’t even think of attacking the inner palace.
Even in the actual game, you could clear the prologue by reaching the gateway.
As I was walking like that, an ominous thought hit my head.
What if I run into monsters on the way?
A cold sweat ran down his spine. He remembered the horrible sight of the plaza he had just seen.
Can I fight and win?
Make sure to read from noble mtl dot com
Damn it. I couldn’t throw away my sword.
Only then do regrets come rushing in. Throwing away the helmet and sword while running away was such a foolish act.
With that thought in mind, I made my way through the maze-like alleys.
In the meantime, I ran into a few citizens who were running away. There were people who saw the armor I was wearing and asked for help, but I ignored them and hurried my steps. There was no capacity to take care of every single citizen.
Soon after, the road widened considerably.
If you just pass through that road, it will be the imperial palace. At that thought, my steps quickened.
A person leaning against the outer wall of the alley, looking at us.
A one-eyed man holding a curved sword stained with blood.
No luck, no support.
A pupil with a vertical slit that can be seen between the robes comes out and heads towards Lynthia.
“Fried Iscobal. When I asked why he was running away, there was a reason.”
He spoke with a tongue that glided like a snake. It was still a creepy voice.
His eyes turned to Lyncia. A gasp and the sound of air escaping could be heard from the side.
“I can’t believe there was a surviving lineage of Emperor Hani.”
Whirik. Turning the curved sword once, the man walked out.
I looked back the way I had come. can you run away Of course, if it was Fried’s leg strength, he would be able to escape as he did before.
But Lyncia is by my side. It would be difficult to run away with her.
If that’s the case, there’s only one way to fight back, so I wonder if there’s a chance to fight him without a sword and win.
I don’t know. After all, if the Empress dies, this world is over.
I resigned myself to it and walked away slowly.
“Princess, please step back.”
After biting the concerned Lyncia, I stood in front of her.
I said this, but my whole body trembled. My legs felt weak, and my teeth chattered.
I want to go home, really.
“It’s a good attitude. You are an example of knights.”
The man who said that with a smile.
The man let out a laugh that I couldn’t tell if it was a mockery or not, and then took a posture.
Then, from the other side, I started to run at a higher speed, and I took an awkward posture without a sword.
And in the blink of an eye, the guy who came running swung a curved sword.
A sword attack that would never have reacted if it had been his original body. However, Fried’s senses, close to being superhuman, were sharp.
I opened my eyes wide and followed the path of the sword, then twisted my upper body to avoid it.
The aimless sword grazed my armor.
The moment I called for pleasure, I felt a sharp pain in my thigh and fell out.
As if he had expected me to evade, he took back the sword he swung and laid down a second sword attack. Even I, who was ignorant of swordsmanship, could see that it was a considerable state.
Blood gushed from the deeply cut thigh. It was a mind-numbing pain.
But it didn’t give me time to cool off. Continued, he ran towards me and swung his sword continuously.
I repeated rolling back and forth with an extremely heightened sense. However, his sword also skillfully aimed at me, and the wounds increased each time.
Most of them had armor and were not seriously injured, but some attacks accurately aimed at the seam of the armor, causing deep sword wounds.
Blood splattered several times and scattered all over the alley. Each time, indescribable pain struck, but there was no time to be in pain.
After such one-sided attacks came and went, the man backed away slightly.
“What a disappointment. To think that the best knight of the Imperial Guard has this level of skill.”
Shrugging his shoulders, the man says with a sneer.
“Sir Oswald was much better at competing.”
The decapitated Oswald was a knight who had trained in swordsmanship all his life, and I was just a normal person with a non-human body, no less.
“Let’s end it slowly.”
The man wiped the blood off his sword with his hamstrings and started running toward me.
“Lee f*k … … .”
You can’t just be suffering like this.
It’s better to do something rather than continue to be eaten.
And since a while ago, I was dodging only the knife, so the heat started to flare up. Whether it was a lot of blood or a rush of adrenaline, the fear has faded.
I opened my eyes wide and focused all my senses on that guy approaching.
Then, the surroundings became quiet, and the image of him running was seen in slow motion, like in slow motion.
I took a stance and stomped on the bastard.
It was a solid combat taekwondo.
As for the result, my fist missed.
It was because he hurriedly retreated, perhaps sensing that he was alive.
But my fist didn’t stop, and with a gong sound, I smashed the whole wall of the alleyway.
Smashed bricks scatter all over the place.
A few bricks flew into his head, but he felt no pain.
A dripping sound was heard.
I don’t know if it was me, that man, or Lyncia.
“… … This level of destructive power without mana. Retract what you just said. It is definitely a skill worthy of a guardian knight.”
The man stood back and clapped.
At first glance, a laid-back attitude. However, the expression between the robes seemed a bit tired.
“… … .”
I blankly looked at my hand.
It was literally a nuclear fist that completely destroyed the wall.
I’m sleepy, right?
