The Duke’s Madness - Chapter 104
The Duke’s Madness chapter 104
Arthur got off the train.
At that moment, a group of gangs blocking the railroad shouted.
“Devils, go away! Go away-!”
“Don’t interfere with the priest’s penance!”
Arthur patted his chin and muttered.
‘The Black Cross… Are they followers of Jenika?’
In the meantime, Ginny, who had come to the side, narrowed her eyes.
“what? Isn’t that a protest, is that?”
“Do you think so?”
With these words, Arthur awakened his bodily senses.
At that moment, I heard the conversation between the protesters and the crew who blocked the railroad tracks.
“No, you can’t do this here!”
“They will all be arrested later by the riot police!”
“This is absolutely obstruction of public affairs!”
The protesters responded to the explanations of the flight attendants.
“God said, there is a demon here who wants to harm our leader!”
“Back off! Back off! Devil!”
“I will never go to the headmaster!”
Arthur, who was watching the conversation, burst out laughing.
“I don’t know what it is, but it looks like it came out well.”
“Iknow, right. There will be no other people with a mark like that other than the black cross.”
Then Leon, who got off the train late, shouted.
“Hey guys! Come over here.”
Ginny and Arthur, who were looking at the demonstration, turned and approached Leon.
Leon muttered with a serious expression on his face.
“According to the information my friends have given me, it seems the situation is the same everywhere, not just here.”
“oh… Are there protests on the other side?”
“It looks like that. hmm… Did you use some of Jenika’s hair? It’s exposed anyway, so I think it’s the intention to drag out time.”
“So what are you going to do?”
“Wait for a while. Can’t we go on foot?”
Then Ginny whispered in a low voice.
“Looking at that person, I think it will be resolved soon?”
At these words, Arthur and Leon’s eyes turned.
At some point, I saw Kun standing in front of the protesters.
The demonstrators flinched back at Kun’s size, which is usually taller than average.
“What are you!?”
At the shouts of the protesters, Kun smiled.
“What is it? An angel who will break the heads of fanatics like you.”
With these words, Kun’s hands were wrapped in flames.
Arthur, who was watching, exclaimed.
“oh… Battle Mage?”
“A battle mage? Is that person a warrior who uses magic?”
“Looks like it? Battle mages aren’t common, but it’s amazing.”
Meanwhile, the zealots frightened by the flames shouted in surprise.
“oh my!! There is a madman who scares innocent citizens, but the crew of the Arcane only watches!”
“I will never forget to file a complaint!”
“Just watch those bad guys! Are you guys still civil servants!”
Arcane’s station attendant was startled by the shouts and stopped Kun.
“customer! You can’t do this!”
“No matter how angry you are, you can’t use this kind of violence!”
However, despite the dissuade from the Arcane station staff, Kun did not back down.
“Don’t get out of the way! Shall I break your heads first!”
In the end, Arthur stroked his chin in a situation that turned into a mess.
“Why are you calling me?”
“I just walk and move.”
Leon tilted his head.
“why? Looking at the situation, I think that Kun will take care of it?”
“I think so, but I don’t feel good.”
“The people who are blocking the railroad tracks now. There is a corner that believes in something.”
At Arthur’s words, Leon raised his eyes.
“Do you have a corner to believe in?”
“yes. If it wasn’t for that, there’s no way everyone would be brave enough to block the railroad even though they were surrounded by such flames, wouldn’t they?”
“You mean the Black Cross personnel are coming this way?”
Arthur raised an eyebrow.
“well… . But there is no need to take the risk, right? In the first place, our goal wasn’t the black cross, right?”
Leon pondered for a moment, then finally nodded.
“What’s wrong? Fortunately, there is a village nearby. Stop by there, and take the next train tomorrow morning.”
With these words, Leon and Arthur, who each packed their belongings, left the railroad tracks.
The B-class mercenary, Cheney, who had been watching the scene crookedly, murmured.
“Really, that person from before… Is that the dead person Dawn?”
I couldn’t believe it.
It is not an exaggeration to say that he turned the back world upside down for a while.
At the same time, a madman who quarreled with the pirates and Chilhwang.
It was difficult for Cheneyser to accept the fact that Dawn, the most famous mercenary at the moment, was the stupid young man just a moment ago.
‘… Should I have checked this?’
It was when Cheney was stroking his chin with his thoughts.

Nivel, who approached at some point, murmured.
“You seem to be thinking the same thing as me.”
“… You look pretty curious too, don’t you?”
“Don’t be surprised. To meet Dawn like this… .”
From nob le mt l dot com
Nivel, who was speechless, raised a corner of his mouth.
“How about changing the target?”
“Change the target?”
“okay. There’s no guarantee that we’ll be able to catch Enika Hazel with our own hands anyway, just because we’re chasing the Black Cross.”
Cheney’s eyes widened.
“So let’s catch the Dawn you bought instead?”
“Isn’t that bad? If both are big players, it’s much better to take the confirmed one.”
A small smile tugged at the corners of Chenee’s lips.
“Is the profit 5 to 5?”
“Hmm… being attracted But will it be just us?”
“Whatever you do, let’s bring in the Battle Mage over there.”
It was the moment when Cheney was about to nod.
The smile that hung on her lips disappeared.

Nybel murmured at the change in expression.
“… what’s the matter?”
“… … .”
“hey? Why are you suddenly bewitched?”
He waved his hands, but Cheney was unmoved.
It was at this moment that Nivel, who was puzzled by that, looked back.
Something stretched out of the darkness and covered his vision.
It became the last scene Nybel remembered.

What Leon said was true.
There was a small village nearby.
Arthur and Leon Ginny went into an inn located in the center of the town.
“… You are a foreigner.”
At the innkeeper’s words, Arthur bounced a gold coin.
The innkeeper who accepted the gold coin murmured in surprise.
“You don’t have the money to pay back this amount?”
“are you okay. Instead, I’ll order three of the most delicious menus here in the biggest room.”
“… What a hot guest. wait a moment.”
Arthur and Ginny Leon nodded and sat down at the table.
Ginny muttered as she slapped her thigh.
“Uh… I am dying to walk for a long time.”
“Can I give you a massage, Miss Ginny?”
“… Now that I see it, Mr. Leon is also quite crazy.”
“Am I? uh huh… Saying that about a real madman!”
Listening to the two of them talking, Arthur leaned his back against the back of the chair.
And I looked around.
“… … .”
Inside the tavern of an old but fairly spacious inn, only my party could be seen.
‘It’s a place where business doesn’t work.’
Well, who would do an inn business just because they stopped by such a remote village?
Arthur shrugged and turned his head.
Steak and soup cooked to a golden brown by an innkeeper who approached at some point.
and served the bread.
“oh my god… It looks so delicious.”
“These are ordinary but faithful to the basics. Eat well.”
Ginny and Leon’s eyes shone.
It was no exaggeration to say that my stomach was stuck to my back because I had been walking all morning.
Just as he was about to reach for the food, Arthur asked.
“But why is the village so quiet, owner?”
“… Why is the town so quiet?”
“yes. Even though it’s nighttime, isn’t it too empty?”
The owner scratched his head.
“Isn’t it strange that such a remote village is so noisy?”
“Hmm… is it so? But is it too quiet for that?”
Leon, who was next to him, tapped Arthur on the shoulder.
“… Arthur. It’s rude to ask too persistently.”
“aha. Excuse me. Then I will ask you something else.”
Arthur laughed softly.
“It looks like you poured a very strong poison into the food. What is the reason?”
Ginny, who was about to pick up the bread, was startled.
It was no different for Leon and the innkeeper.
he said, shaking his shaggy beard.
“poison? Did I poison this food?”
“what? is not it?”
“… I’m not a cook, but I cross the line.”
“hmm. Then would you like to try it?”
“… … .”
“If you don’t poison your food, you can eat it with confidence. isn’t it?”
The innkeeper’s eyes narrowed.
It was when Ginny and Leon, who had been watching, secretly grabbed their weapons.
The closed door opened violently and someone came in.
“These guests are quite quick-witted.”
“Giggle… So am I good? A guy who takes medicine and becomes like a corpse doesn’t taste bitter.”
“Shut up you bastard. Where would a follower of God say such vulgar words… .”
A group of 30 people who seemed to be well over spears and swords.
He was entering the inn carrying several other swords.
Leon, watching the scene, burst out laughing.
“… Wasn’t it an ordinary town? Are you sure you are a bandit?”
With these words, Arthur rose from his seat.
When Genie noticed and was about to stand up together, Leon stopped him.
“… Shouldn’t I help?”
“In such a confined space, a sniper like Ginny would rather get in the way.”
At Leon’s words, Ginny sat down again.
In the meantime, Arthur, who was looking at the host and the crowd blocking my way, stroked my chin.
‘It doesn’t look like an ordinary bandit… .’
From nob le mt l dot com
Not all of them were like that, but all of them were overly far-sighted.
‘There are countless bandits in the world, and it would be strange even if all the innocent people gathered here… .’
Because of that, Arthur was able to know that there was someone behind them.
Train stopped by protesters.
A town you can see from time to time.
Thinking this far, Arthur burst out laughing and asked a question.
“hmm… I’m asking just in case, does anyone want to live?”
“If there is such a person, please raise your hand in advance. I’m thinking of saving one person anyway.”
The crowd staring at Arthur blinked their eyes.
“… What nonsense is that?”
“Did you go crazy all of a sudden?”
“Then I’ll make up my own mind. Don’t you want to complain later?”
With these words, Arthur swung the magic sword sheathed.
In a single blow that would have been more accurate to say that it was shot rather than swung, the heads of five people fell in an instant.
“Poetry, what the f*ck?”
The surviving group raised their weapons in belated surprise.
However, it was already too late.
Arthur’s sword, swung once more, cut sharply between them.
With a scream, most of the group of 30 fell to the ground or died.
Ginny and Leon opened their mouths in amazement at the sight.
“Uh, what is it… ?”
“That sword… Am I right?”
In the meantime, Arthur turned his gaze and said to the inn owner, who was concerned about his flustered expression.
“Are you alive?”
“you you.… .”
“I didn’t mean to, um… It’s good. what. I also feel comfortable talking to someone I have already spoken to.”
With these words, Arthur smiled brightly.
“If you don’t tell me, I have to torture you, but I’m a little clumsy, so I don’t recommend it. Will you please tell me, master?”
The owner trembled his chin.
It was when Arthur, who had been watching the scene, took a step, a step.
The corner of the innkeeper’s mouth went up.
“Look back, you bastard. It’s not over yet.”
Arthur’s eyes widened at these words.
In the meantime, swords rushed in from behind.
Arthur, who lightly dodged the blow, exclaimed.
The assailants whose limbs were cut off by the magic sword were standing up at some point.
Arthur, who watched the scene, tilted his head.
“Immortal? hmm… zombie? What should I call this?”
To that question, the man who glued Arthur’s severed head together answered.
