I Became a Dark Knight the Empress Is Obsessed With chapter 47
47 – Mole Catch – (4)
“Is this the time for perseverance?”
Immediately after Uriad ascended to the ground, Lautrec sighed and perched on the railing of the canal.
The spirit Sylphy, who rode on his shoulder, also sat down on the edge of his shoulder blades and shook his dainty feet.
Millia watched the scene with satisfaction.
Then, suddenly, he opened his mouth.
“Looks like you got along better.”
“It wasn’t long ago that we couldn’t eat each other.”
“ah… … .”
“It seems like only yesterday that you huffed at disparaging your efforts, but what is your change of heart?”
I wanted to talk about something, but it seemed to be about Fried. In fact, just a month ago, Milia was reluctant to try Freed.
“It’s just that my thoughts have changed a little since that day. Sir Lautrec did. It is important to do something in a situation like this.”
“Yes it was.”
“I also felt that I had to do something. I think I was too complacent all this time. In fact, after talking with Sir Fried, he doesn’t seem like such a bad person.”
Freed has worked for the Empire ever since that day. He has already saved the empress from death several times. Even in the Senate Council, he was told to keep an eye on Edwin in the dark, and he saved himself from almost losing his life to the apostle. This time, he got a good opportunity by negotiating with the tycoon of the underground aqueduct.
Not long ago, when questioning his identity in the underground water canal, he remembered Fried, who reluctantly confessed that he was related to the cult. However, the actions he took were a strong ally, never considered an enemy.
Because of that judgment, Milia also decided to trust and follow Freed.
“Because I am still immature. I’m not as skilled as Sir Lautrec, Sir Uriad, or Sir Fried. That is why I have no choice but to trust and follow the superiors.”
Of course, Fried acknowledged himself as an equal Guardian Knight. The same was true of Lautrec and Uriad.
However, it meant nothing if Milia herself did not acknowledge it.
“I think you’re a decent enough Guardian Knight.”
“I know. I’m really grateful for that feeling, but I can’t understand it either. I haven’t been able to prove it yet.”
“that’s… … Is it because of your sister?”
Lautrec spoke carefully, and Milia stopped talking for a moment after hearing the story.
The eldest daughter of the Grand Duke of Lianthur, a magician with a talent so strong that it is said to be a mistake in the law of causality.
In fact, before Seira became an adult, she rose to the rank of Archmage. It was the first time since the beginning of history, even considering that he was from the famous magician Liantur.
Milia, who was often compared to her since childhood, gave up on walking magic. Instead, he chose a different path, and that was the Empire’s Guardian Knight.
Fried’s point in the past was not wrong. Because Milia rose to the position of a Guardian Knight through the prestige of her family. From the point of view of Fried, who had risen step by step from the bottom, it must have looked like a thorn in the eye.
The chaff of Liantur. It was a tag that followed Milia throughout her life.
“Not at all… … I can’t tell you.”
Lautrec gave a wry smile as Milia spoke in desperation. she spoke quickly.
“But whatever your sister is, I don’t care. Whatever the outcome, I will go ahead and prove it. In the end, I will stand shoulder to shoulder with you all.”
I will run to the level that I can understand myself.
Milia declared that to Fried. And Lianthur will keep the oath he once made, no matter what.
That was it.
“You are the answer. I think it’s a good attitude though. In the past, no matter what you said, it was evident that you were mentally concentrated.”
“… … He, did it look like that?”
“Well, that’s not bad. Because you were straight as always.”
Lautrec shrugged. The wind made Sylphy lose her balance and stumble.
Either that or not, he said tiredly with his arms raised.
“I’m glad though. As a result of my body-to-body conversation, I thought I was completely captured by Freed.”
“Body talk… … ?”
When I asked again because I didn’t understand, Lautrec grinned and slammed one fist vertically into the palm of the other.
Miria’s face flushed at that obscene gesture.
“I’m that bad! No matter what, there’s no way I would do something rude like that!”
“hahahaha. It’s a joke, a joke.”
As Lautrec giggled, Millia inflated her cheeks, unable to control her anger.
As expected, Fried and Lautrec are anxious because they can’t make fun of themselves.

Didn’t even Empress Lynchia misunderstand it some time ago?
Millia saw her reflection in the rain puddle.
Golden hair and blue eyes that shine bright even in the dark. And an embarrassingly large chest.
… … Do I look like such a slut?
Milia looked at herself and seriously thought about it. From Lautrec’s point of view, watching the action, it was hard to hold back laughter.
That was the moment.
Suddenly, Sylphy, who was riding on Lautrec’s shoulder, widened her eyes.
Sylphy waved her arms wildly and pointed to the other side of the waterway, and Lautrec, who saw that, stood up from her seat with a stiff face.
“Are you here?”
“Are they guys?”
“yes. Apparently, Fried’s intelligence was accurate.”
Lautrec gazed in the opposite direction of the canal, sword drawn.
Then a splash was heard and two men emerged from the water.
The identity was a man wearing a head scarf and a girl with a scarf tied up to her chin. The chain scythe on the men’s backs and the ugly tattoos on their faces showed that they were not lost beggars.
They looked at Lautrec and Milia and had a casual conversation.
“Is that a giant?”
“Can it be? look at that sword Just look at it, you’re a knight. You’re even the Guardian Knight you’ve only heard about.”
The girl tilted her head.
“But why is the Guardian Knight in these sewers? Could it be that those people are also as stray as Mr. Anden?”
“… … are you stupid Just looking at it, you’ve been waiting for us. Information leaked out.”
“Does leaking information mean that there is an infiltrator? After all, is Mr. Anden the culprit?”
“Let’s not talk.”
The man called Anden sighed and cut off.
Lautrec, who had been listening to the pointless conversation, took a step forward.
“Reveal your identity. This front leads to the mausoleum. Those who are not verified cannot advance.”
Lautrec pursed his lips and pointed his sword at them.
“And you guys don’t seem particularly verified.”
“Mr. Anden, it’s a big deal. That knight has a keen eye.”
“… … Yuria, are you stupid?”
Anden put his hand on the girl’s hair and tousled it as if mixing it. At that rough touch, the girl called Yuria buried her face in the scarf and spoke in a snarky voice.
“Think freely. Anyway, well, my body was a little sore, but it went well.”
Anden raised his gaze and scanned Milia and Lautrec.
In response, his vertically slit eyes shone like the pupils of a beast.
“I’m going to be that woman. The one with a smooth face and a nice body is perfect as a collectible. I can enjoy it for a while and then sell it for a high price.”
“worst. low quality.”
“What. It’s a means to make a living.”
Anden started swinging his chain scythe.
In response to that aggressive action, Lautrek cast spiritism, and Millia also raised her mana and took a stance.
Yuria only wiggled her small hand next to Anden.
“One of your teammates killed Slaine.”
Spinning the scythe, Anden flicked his tongue.
Then the tattoos on his body shone brightly.
“Let’s see those skills.”
As soon as the words were finished, the chain sickle rushed fiercely, scratching the outer wall of the canal for a long time.
Lautrec swung his sword, but at one point, a flying silver halo caught his sword. It was magic that appeared from Yuria’s hand.
The chain scythe slid straight out of Lautrec’s head and headed for Millia, who threw down her mana-laden sword.
In the aftermath of the collision, the outer walls of the underground water canal were shattered.

He swung the sword wrapped in silver magic continuously.
Shining solid lines seemed to intersect in the air, and the heads of the three zombies exploded like tofu.
Brains and skull fragments soar high into the sky. Then, joy rushed into the hand holding the sword.
I felt dizzy at the thrilling taste of the hand that invaded my lower legs.
“I’m crazy, really.”
I was so sorry that I slapped my forehead a few times.
Why am I delighted to explode the head of an animated corpse? Have you finally gone mad after cutting people so much?
There was no way to explain this sourceless exhilaration.
Shaking off my thoughts, I cut the head of the zombie that runs again.
It seems that more than a dozen have already been cut down, but there is still no end. As this confrontation continued for more than tens of minutes, the knights and soldiers who made up the square began to gradually get tired.
As I swung the sword, I didn’t miss the sight of Korra’s grip trembling as she fought the zombies right beside me.
“Hey, calm down.”
When Cora’s hand touched her shoulder, she freaked out like someone caught stealing.
However, he regained his senses and threw his spear through one of the zombies’ foreheads.
A little relieved by that appearance, I looked around. No matter how you look at it, the situation doesn’t show any signs of getting better.
“Is it necessary to kill the sorcerer after all?”
I retreaded my memory and recalled the assassins who were aiming for Lynthia’s life in the second act.
Serpent’s Eye Slaine died in the prelude, so there are only three left.
The chain scythe Anden, the necromancer Yuria, and finally the necromancer Duke.
And this deed was clearly the work of Duke, that bastard. Originally, it was a standard development to enter through an underground waterway and fight while raising death knights, but for some reason, it seemed that it turned into a mass offensive in a cemetery.
I don’t know why the plot went wrong. However, the only way to overcome this situation would be to kill the sorcerer. Because it was like that in the game too.
“The question is, how do you get through this?”
I drool as I watched the army of undead. It seemed to be in the hundreds or even thousands.
Even though the battle mages continued to cast wide-area magic and the knights wielded swords wrapped in mana, there was not much progress as there were too many of them.
I spit and swung my sword again. Puck and a zombie’s head was crushed.
Amidst the bloody fighting, someone gasped and swallowed his breath.
“That… … .”
One of the knights muttered and was looking into the distance.
It was in the middle of the undead army.
There, a banquet of injustice was taking place that even the gods could turn a blind eye to. The corpses, all of them, were clumped together and transformed into the shape of a gigantic giant.
A giant the size of a building slowly rises from a pile of corpses. The sight was so grotesque that it made me nauseous.
His name must have been Corpse Giant. In the game, it only appeared briefly in the background illustration, but seeing it in person, its appearance was no joke.
If such a giant came running, this square would collapse helplessly. If that happens, the temple will also be in a defenseless state. It’s literally the end.
“I’m fed up. yes?”
At that moment when I was perplexed, someone tapped me on the shoulder.
When I hurriedly looked over there, a female knight with light purple hair was nodding her head at me. The protruding ears seemed to be elves.
I saw it when I went to the temple earlier. He was one of the vassals of the Iron Blood Prince Harzfeld. Appearing in earnest from the third act, he was a significant figure in the game, even with a single CG.
What was your name?
“What are you doing?”
When I asked, the female knight nodded and pointed to the army in front of her eyes, to be exact, in the direction of the corpse giant that was gradually increasing in size. And he wrung his hands and threw them out.
It seems to be some kind of sign, but it doesn’t speak, so I should be able to understand it.
“What does it mean? Please speak.”
“… … .”
The female knight shook her head and crossed her fingers to make an X in front of her mouth.
That action made me suspicious.
Even in the actual game, this article did not have a single line.
I thought it just came from the laziness of the production team who didn’t want to write the script.
“Are you dumb?”
Hearing my self-talk, the female knight nodded and shrugged her shoulders.
It reminded me of a clown performing a mime, and I almost burst into laughter.
A knight who can’t speak anyway. Even so, if he was chosen as a vassal of the grand duke, he must have been quite talented.
I pondered over the hand movements she had taken, and then asked in dubious doubt.
“You mean to deal with that giant?”
The female knight held out both hands outward as if removing a curtain, and swung her flat palms. Then he pointed at himself and smiled slightly.
“Are you saying you’re going to run into them and open the way?”
Seeing the female knight nod one last time, I let out a deep sigh.
“It is suicidal. It is impossible for even a knight to open the road alone and deal with that giant.”
I don’t know how strong that article is, but the problem is with me.
It is said that he became a little stronger as a result of training, but it was impossible to catch that giant alone.
Even with the support of other knights or battle mages, it would be difficult.
In the first place, looking at Bangjin’s current situation, it didn’t seem like there would be room for other knights. Aren’t they busy just trying to stop the swarming zombies?
“I think it would be better to check the situation for now.”
“… … .”
“… … Why are you like that?”
The female knight stopped talking for a moment after hearing my answer.
And the look on his face showed a subtle sense of disappointment. It looked like a dog going out for a walk.
There’s nothing wrong with being disappointed. In times like this, you need to think realistically. Although I expressed my intention of refusing the extension.
“… … .”
Suddenly, the female knight turned around. As a result, the hem of the cloak flutters.
She glanced back and patted her chest.
Realizing at once what that action meant, I hurriedly tried to stop her.
It was after the female knight had already jumped over the square and entered the guys.
A tidal wave of light purple mana swept through the piles of cheetahs, opening the way. A solid road unfolded between the groups of zombies who had temporarily retreated. Standing right in the center, she looked at me and smiled brightly at the world.
This time, it looks like a puppy looking for praise.
“… … Don’t you have a leash?”
How come all the elves in this town are idiots?

Desperately, I drew my sword and followed her.
