I Became a Dark Knight the Empress Is Obsessed With chapter 83
83 – Imperial Banquet – (2)
Watching Yuria slipping while munching on the cake, I knocked on the table.
I don’t know if there is any awareness or not.
“You’re just eating finely.”
“Hmph. What is it? There’s nothing I can do anyway.”
Yuria raised her eyes and said.
That was true as it was, so I couldn’t find the next words.
“Yes. It’s good to be optimistic. Enjoy your meal.”
“Even if you don’t say that, you’re eating deliciously, right?”
At first, it was nasty, but now that I see it, the way he squeezes the cake into his small mouth is strangely addictive.
I was looking at mukbang for a while, and I suddenly remembered.
“Don’t call me by name.”
“……hahahaha. What is it?”
I paused for a while and asked.
“Twenty years ago, at the Iscobal Manor… the children who were held captive with me.”
“Why is that?”
Not long ago, in the basement of the Iscobal estate, I found three corpses of a child with only bones remaining.
It was clear that they were children sacrificed at the time, without even thinking about it.
However, a total of seven children were captured in an alien demon summoning ceremony. Among them, if I take out Cleta, there are five left. And three of the remaining five have been found as skeletons, and one is right in front of my eyes.
that it is
“Where is the other one?”
“……Are you curious now?”
YuRia put down her fork.
He met her staring gaze directly.
In the end, it was Yuria who gave up first. She took a deep breath and said.
“There were two people who survived that day. Me and… Seneca.”
Senecara. is it a name I urged my next words with a chin.
However, YuRia hesitated as she spoke.
Feeling unimpressed, I tilted my head.
“what’s the matter?”
After thinking about it for a bit, Yuria said as if vomiting.
“Seneca lived in the same neighborhood as me. He was a kid I’d seen a lot since I was little. He lived in a slum, but he had guests every day. That way.”
I nodded without speaking.
Well, this world is a twisted and sh*tty place. There is no such thing as a cheong law. A child’s human rights would be lighter than a piece of toilet paper.
“From a young age, Seneca was a strange kid who didn’t talk much and didn’t laugh very well. We weren’t close, but we weren’t bad with each other.
“What do you mean?”
“Because I became an apostle.”
When I opened my eyes wide, I smiled self-deprecatingly as if it was a reaction that YuRia expected.
“Now he’s a high-ranking member of the church. It’s Seneca, the apostle of lust. That’s how we should call him.”
Make sure to read from noble mtl dot com
Did one of the children who survived the ritual become an apostle?
This was bad news as it is.
“That… Where is Seneca?”
“Well, how can a mere priest like me know about the apostle’s future? As you know, the church does not cooperate closely with the apostles. In a way, it is a competitive relationship.”
If the apostles had cooperated with each other, they would have banded together and invaded the capital, aiming for Lynthia’s life.
In the end, it is said that this is the limit of information that can be found with Yuria. Still, knowing some important information, it must be a good harvest.
“Yes. Let’s go now.”
I got up and left Yuria behind me.
Before opening the iron door of the prison, she spoke from behind.
“So, what are you going to do now?”
Looking back, YuRia was munching on the cake before she knew it.
He let out a dry smile at that dainty figure.
After saying that, I left the dungeon.
I hit the back of the head with another hard blow to the sleeping guard and came out to the ground, and the sun was slowly going down.
I sighed as I looked toward the inner banquet hall.
Obviously, in that banquet hall, Lynchia and Aranion must be in the same place.
It is a confirmed fact that Aranion has some ulterior motives. It was like that in the original, so it will be like that here too. It was even more vigilant as the time had come forward.
But as of now, I couldn’t enter the banquet hall. They were completely excluded from the escort plan and could not even cross the entrance.
A quandary is a fitting situation.
But it was relatively reassuring.
The reason, like Aranion, was thanks to a character who did not exist in the original development.
I took out the magic tool in my chest and started it. Then, a small vibration sounded from the magic tool, and a frivolous voice flowed out.
[Ah, Mr. Fried. It is now connected.]
It was Archmage Seira.
No matter how much Aranion is, he won’t act when the continent’s strongest wizard is standing right next to Lynchia.
[Do you know how annoyed I was when I called out several times and the answer was silent? I mean, I don’t like solemn places. There are only old people here. I want to see a handsome man!]
“Well, since you’re the representative of the Grand Duke of Gold, it’s only natural that you attend.”
[You mean I feel bad, I feel! So, where have you been?]
“No big deal. It was in a place where magic was controlled.”
[Eh? Have you been to such a secret place? That means… … Is it also an underground prison?]
it was sharp
On the outside, it looks silly, but on the other hand, it’s sharp again.
“So, how is the situation? Are there any signs of Aranion moving?”
[Ugh~~ Well. Peaceful yet? The enlisted men don’t look particularly strange either. I think I’ll just pass by today.]
At that, he let out a sigh of relief.
It was safe to say now. If this continues, Anarion may not intervene until the third act is over.
It could be that the raids that have happened so far were intended to be sneaky.
[Ah, is that so? I have a question.]
It was a strangely playful voice.
“What is it?”
[Who are Lia and the Empress? No matter how much I think about it, I don’t know. Are you also a mistress? But you seem to be having a bad relationship lately? How about coming into my house at this time? Although Lia is a bit clumsy, she’s a surprisingly smart kid. Oh, didn’t you see Lia naked? The breasts are very… … .]
“hahahaha. Hang up.”
He’s not even an old man, he’s sitting with his bowl shaking.
[Hey, I’m not done talking… … .]
I turned off the magic tool and put it in my arms.
He exhaled, feeling the chilly night air. The pure white breath hovered in the air for a while before disappearing.
The sun had fallen before I knew it, and a lantern keeper was walking around the garden to light the mana lamp.
And right now, when the lights are on, it was the perfect time to be secretive.
“Shall we do it soon?”
As it was, I hid in the dark shadow of the castle wall and moved on.
My role was to stand by, but there were still many things I could do. Or rather, because I was demoted, there was something I could do.
like right now
I put my hand into the groove in the castle wall. I climbed up the wall and went down the slope of the outer castle. Originally, it would have made a loud noise, but since he had taken off his armor, all he could hear was the rustling of his clothes.
I ran between the roofs and went down again.
The destination is an aerial bridge connecting the outer world and the inner world.
More precisely, it was the quarters of the imperial aristocrats nestled beneath it.
Busily playing with my body, I organized my thoughts.
Act 3 Work Conference.
If you follow the development of the original story, there will be assassination cases targeting Lynchia while the meeting is in progress. Of course, the meeting becomes chaotic and is called off.
In the process, with the help of the Guardian Knights, Harzfeld’s vassal knight Eina, and various helpers, the main point of the third act was to find out who was behind it and punish it.
And, if I remember right, what was behind it.
‘Your name is probably… … Was it Count Aurier?’
on ducks. As an administrator like Korold, he was also a member of the Senate.
In fact, in the first act, Edwin’s ploy to dethrone Lyncia remained silent. In other words, it was tacitly agreed. Unlike other characters, he was cleared of charges due to insufficient evidence, so he still maintained his position.
Anyway, in Act 3, Orie hires several assassins from all over the continent to target Lincia.
An uninvited guest named Aranion has appeared, but the real dark Count Orie’s plan in the third act must still be rolling.
block it in advance And focus on the enemy named Aranion.
That’s why I planned to secretly search his room in between banquets. There’s no way that you can’t get anything out of the dust.
I put my hand on the windowsill.
According to the map I had looked at in advance, this was Orie’s room.
I tried to open the window. The lock was not engaged. Well, who would expect to break in through the window of a room five stories high?
I just kicked the opposite wall.
Then, curling up, passed through the small window.
So I entered the room.
I held my breath at the sight that caught my eye.
A red puddle touched the tip of my foot.
What you can feel through your nose is the thick scent of blood that permeates the entire room.
“This again… I didn’t expect it.”
I groaned as I watched the horrific sight unfold before my eyes.
A large sword stuck in the middle of the wall. And one man whose chest was pierced by that sword.
The man’s complexion was pale, as if he had already lost his life a long time ago, and his wide-open pupils were filled with extreme fear that he had felt for the last time in his life.
I couldn’t remember his appearance because I hadn’t met him a few times, but the corpse in front of me must have been that of Count Orrier.
Above all, the notification window in front of me proved this.
[ Ending – #31 / 「Count Orier」 ]
＞ Survival Point +1
“What’s going on…”
I sat down holding my head.
The boss of Act 3, Count Orie, who should have been a boss.
Why is this child dead?
