The Duke’s Madness - Chapter 109
The Duke’s Madness chapter 109
Harbin’s impression was frowned upon.
“When did we ever meet?”
“It’s true that we met rather than never met.”
“Rather than ever… Is it okay to meet you?”
“yes. We meet rather than never met.”
Harbin burst into laughter.
‘What nonsense is that?’
It’s true that we met rather than never met.
So that monster is from the future?
The Harbin man thought for a moment and shook his head.
‘It’s not just that nonsense, it just makes no sense in this situation itself.’
While they were sleeping, a mysterious monster appeared and slaughtered the Dormund soldiers.
In the process, the wizards of the family might have been attacked, and they caught a glimpse of those wearing robes.
From Harbin’s point of view, the situation itself did not make sense.
‘It’s only been a day since Sir Ian entrusted me with investigating the rear… ‘
Harbin’s gaze narrowed as he was speechless.
In the midst of the torrential rain, I could see the bewildered face of the mysterious man looking at me.
The bloodstains that had not been washed away by the heavy rain merged with the face, and there was no other demon.
‘Maybe it’s the real devil. An evil demon trying to seduce me.’
With the thought, Harbin exhaled lightly.
At that moment, a blue sword surged up from his sword.
The temperature of the surroundings changed due to the sword energy that only noble swordsmen can exude.
Arthur, who was watching, burst into laughter.
“Swordsman… It was. You were a genius.”
Along with these words, Arthur’s sword spirit soared.
Surprised, Harbin opened his mouth.
“why? Did you know that only you could emit sword energy?”
“… Are you saying it wasn’t a demon?”
“A demon? What kind of devil is this all of a sudden?”
Harbin muttered, unable to hide his confused expression.
“A real human being, not a demon trying to seduce me?”
At his words, Arthur narrowed his eyes and burst into laughter.
“hahahaha… It’s funny. The devil calls me a devil.”
Arthur jumped up with that cool laugh.
Harbin flinched and murmured.
‘From the first blow, soaring in the air?’
Even the noblest swordsman couldn’t change direction in mid-air?
At that time, Arthur’s body suddenly disappeared.
Harbin, who shuddered, swung his sword backward almost reflexively.
With the harsh sound of swords and swords meeting, the embers jumped out.
Harbin calmed his surprised heart and asked.
“Were you a person with bloodline abilities?”
With these words, Arthur awakened Taken’s ability.
At that moment, Harbin’s body was pushed back.
Harbin, who burst into exclamation, could not hide his astonishment.
I’ve never been pushed out of power since I grabbed the knife, but it was because I was pushed out of power for the first time today.
In the meantime, Arthur’s magic sword disappeared.
Harbin twisted his head again, relying only on his senses.
And this avoidance led to the result of saving lives.
“Hoo… It’s not easy either.”
With Arthur’s murmur, blood flowed from Harbin’s cheek.
Harbin’s neck shook as he watched his own blood wash away in the rain.
‘why… What is this swordsman?’
There was someone in Arcane who achieved such a unique and noble state?
At that time, Arthur finished the confrontation with Harbin and jumped up.
At the same time, Dormund’s remaining forces arrived belatedly on the scene.
The number is about 150 people.
Arthur murmured as he skimmed through them.
“Ian Dormund seems to have headed north, right?”
At this, Harbin came to his senses and replied.
“If you’re not here, wouldn’t it be natural to be in the North?”
“… … .”
“hmm… Originally, I was going to kill him here today, but it’s a pity.”
Harbin’s eyes trembled at Arthur’s words.
“Kill Sir Ian Dormund? What about you?”
“yes. Did you come here for that?”
“Aren’t you afraid of the aftermath?”
“If you are afraid of repercussions, would you do something like this? Isn’t that right, Harbin?”
Harbin fell silent at Arthur’s answer.
“… … .”
In the silence that fell, Harbin grabbed his sword again.
The sword spirit, nobler than a moment ago, soared up riding his sword.
When Arthur’s gaze narrowed at that sharp anticipation that even felt cool, Harbin muttered.
“Originally, if I saw a swordsman like you, I would have fought one-on-one… .”
Harbin, speechless, raised his sword.
“You are dangerous. So forgive me. From now on, I will deal with you not as the knight Harbin, but as the Dormund soldier Harbin.”
* * *
The moment Arthur saw Harbin, he could immediately recognize his true identity.
‘The swordsman who drove me to death at the last moment.’
Unlike now, the future man didn’t talk so much.
He was taciturn, expressionless, and spoke with a sword rather than words.
So it was difficult to deal with.
Kane and Ian put their swords in my chest, but it was Harbin Lane who created that situation.
Among the many knights of Dormund, it was the sword of the ‘Colorless Knight’, who was definitely called a genius.
But now, he met the genius knight again and exchanged swords.
It was definitely heavy and sharp, but something was different from back then.
‘Is it because of the time gap of 10 years?’
At the question posed, Arthur nodded.
Ten years is a great time for a wizard, but it is also a great time for a knight.
So I couldn’t help but laugh.
‘I’m sorry I missed Ian… It’s not bad if I can kill Harbin.’
Anyway, if Ian goes to the north and kills him again, that’s it.
But Harbin Lane is an unintended gain.
A swordsman who was called Dormund’s genius, and a man who was called the colorless knight and who took the lead on any front.
At the same time, you get a chance to kill the man who killed the most Bavarian vassals.
‘Only his blade… How many Bavarians died?’
10 people? 100 people?
Maybe more than a thousand people.
It might be more than that if you add up the number of citizens of Bavaria’s direct jurisdiction who rebelled against Dormund.
‘A man full of reasons to kill. I have to get rid of it from here today.’
Thinking this far, Arthur grabbed the knife and grabbed it.
The sword encircled by the sword drew a circle of light accordingly.
Harbin, who was watching the scene, glanced away.
‘Out of 350… There are only 170 left.’
Harbin burst into laughter as he thought.
‘In that short time… 180 lives were lost by that man’s knife?’
Rather than feeling angry, I was dumbfounded.
Even after such a massacre, that swordsman is not satisfied and wants to fight again?
‘For what reason?’
From nob le mt l dot com
No, at this point, the reason or basis was no longer a problem.
The author abandoned not only his duty as a swordsman, but also his humanity.
Because of that, Harbin decided not to treat Arthur as a human anymore.
“All troops ready.”
With orders from Harbin, the spears and blades of the Dormund army were raised again.
“From now on, we hunt ‘beasts’, not humans.”
With these words, Harbin’s eyes lit up.
“First line load-!”
With Harbin’s cry, the gun was pointed at Arthur.
With Arthur’s exclamation, fire spewed out of the pointed gun.
However, Arthur, who used the Space Leap, evaded the shot early.
Several Dormund soldiers opened their mouths at the incident.
In the meantime, the moment Arthur appeared in the air and tried to dig into the lined up army, Harbin was flooded with swords.
The harsh sound of sword and sword colliding echoed.
Arthur asked, facing the blazing sword.
“How did you know I was going to leap this way?”
“Isn’t killing the sniper and the gunman the most basic rule in practice?”
Arthur burst into laughter.
“Right. But looking at you who blocked my blow with just that… hmm. I really need to kill you, you.”
With these words, Arthur cut off Harbin’s sword.
At the same time, the lengthened magic sword rushed towards the Dormund army again.
Dormund soldiers with shields blocked the blow.
From nob le mt l dot com
No, I was mistaken that it was blocked.
In front of a sword known to be able to cut anything, even the strongest shield was nothing more than a piece of parchment.
The demonic sword surged through the shield split in half, killing several Dormund soldiers.
Seeing that, Harbin, whose expression was distorted, shouted.
“… I can’t stop!”
With a cry, Harbin struck down his sword.
At some point, Arthur’s sword, which returned, took the blow.
In the aftermath of the clash between swords and swords, a small wind of dust rose between the two.
In that bizarre phenomenon, the two beams of light splitting the darkness and heavy rain exchanged ceaselessly.
One of the Dormund soldiers, who had been watching the scene for a while, murmured.
“Me, how do I get in that gap?”
To this, everyone present agreed.
When the sword appears, the owner of the sword disappears, and when the owner of the sword appears, the sword disappears.
In such a situation, there was no way he could properly aim at a non-Harbin assailant.
Because of that, when the 150 Dormund soldiers watched the battle without being able to do this or that, a faint moan could be heard.
When a few surprised soldiers turned their heads, a wizard soaked in blood was beckoning.
“Go, are you alright, wizard!”
“… Shut up and get me up first!”
At his words, the soldiers hurriedly raised the wizard.
The wizard, barely seated, gasped and said.
“If you search that robe over there, you’ll find a potion. bring it to me.”
At this, one of the soldiers searched the corpse and brought a bright red potion.
The wizard scattered the potion all over me and let out a rough breath.
“sh*t… I really lived and died. What is that monster doing?”
“Ha, Lord Harbin is in a confrontation!”
“With Lord Harbin? Who is winning?”
“… that is.”
“Is it equal?”
“… At least that’s how it seems to me.”
The wizard burst out laughing.
To have an equal match with the most promising 6th circle knight in Dormund.
Originally, I shouldn’t have believed it, but when I saw the monster’s skills through my own experience, it didn’t make sense.
‘Where did that guy suddenly come from? No, why did a guy with such skills raid this place?’
The wizard thought for a moment and shook his head.
In the current situation, the motive for the crime was not important.
Killing him or capturing him, it was important to stop him from rampaging any further.
Thinking this far, the wizard’s eyes lit up.
At these words, the eyes of the soldiers who were looking at the wizard widened.
“Only once. I will make a hole in him.”
The wizard’s eyes shone.
“Pour out everything you have then. okay… Shoot the [cannon]. to that monster.”
The soldiers were perplexed and asked.
“This, shoot a cannon at a human… Are you talking?”
The soldiers fell silent at the wizard’s question.
In the meantime, the wizard who looked away looked at Arthur and muttered.
“It’s a cannon to catch a guy like that, but don’t talk nonsense, bring it!”
