The Duke’s Madness - Chapter 110
The Duke’s Madness chapter 110
Harbin and Arthur’s swords crossed.
The grains of light that broke off from the blazing black air shimmered in the darkness.
Harbin and Arthur continued to exchange swords within the grains of light.
If the opponent stabs you, you defend, and if you defend, you stab again.
The countless series of processes became a band and created a regular beat.
But the chord didn’t last long and started to creak.
Harbin gritted it.
But I couldn’t hide the groaning that leaked out.
At the same time, Harbin, who was pushed back by Arthur’s sword rushing in, exhaled.
Arthur, who was watching the scene, fixed his sword.
At the same time, the Beast that was secretly hiding spewed fire.
Harbin managed to dodge the blow with reflexes enhanced by six rings.
The barracks on the other side have disappeared.
Harbin, who was watching the scene, unknowingly swallowed a dry saliva.
‘strong… And tricky.’
It was surprising just to emit sword energy, but the monster in front of him even handled bloodlines and guns.
But what was even more surprising was that the level was by no means as low as the sword.
‘How could this be?’
It was an area that could not be understood by his common sense.
A swordsman who knows how to radiate swordsmanship handles guns and bloodlines?
If you were a monster like this, you should have heard the name at least once.
However, the man in front of him was different from any swordsman on that continent.
‘A man like this suddenly appears and attacks the Dormund barracks?’
After thinking for a while, Harbin shook his head.
‘I won’t understand it if I try to figure it out anyway.’
When we started to investigate the identity of the assailant, we had to examine the present situation as well.
So I decided not to understand.
The opponent in front of me was not an easy opponent to the point of fighting while holding on to my thoughts.
At that moment, thoughts and trembling.
all of that is gone
At the same time, Harbin’s eyes, which had been shaking, regained their tranquility.
Arthur, who was watching the scene, burst out laughing.
With these words, Arthur jumped in again.
Harbin blocked Arthur’s charge with the sword in his hand.
The two people’s hair fluttered in the waves emitted from the collision between swords and swords.
At the same time, Arthur aimed the Beast’s gun at Harbin’s chest.
However, Harbin twisted his body as if he had expected it.
Then he cut off Arthur’s sword and drew it down.
At that blow, Arthur’s eyes widened and Harbin was convinced.
However, the moment Arthur’s eyes drew an arc, Harbin flinched.
‘Are you laughing at the current situation?’
The back of my neck went blank with the thought.
When Harbin was about to twist his body at that sensation, lightning struck between the dark clouds.
Harbin, who was struck by lightning directly, stumbled.
His center collapsed as he let out a moan.
Arthur did not aim for that gap and extended his magic sword.
Surprised, Harbin tried to make a mistake, but it was already too late.
Arthur, who had come close to me, raised his sword and smiled.
“It’s over, haer… .”
At that moment, Arthur’s body was shaken violently.
At the same time, the demonic sword that was fired changed its course and soared into the sky.
Arthur blinked and looked at the owner of the magic that shook his body.
“Shoot-! Shoot everything you have now!”
The blood-soaked wizard was screaming loudly.
At the same time, dozens of guns in the hands of Dormund soldiers were pointed at Arthur.
Arthur, who sighed, belatedly tried to leave, but the gun came first.
Dozens of bullets flew towards Arthur along with the flames gushing out.
The rain and wind stopped for an instant with the firepower that would have killed an ordinary human without leaving a trace.
But the bombardment towards Arthur did not end here.
The cannon, which was useful during a siege, spewed fire.
At that moment, the rain and wind blew away and a huge explosion swept through the Dormund camp.
Kwak Kwa Kwam-!
Burning acrid fumes that swallow even the heavy rain.
At the sight, the soldiers trembled and murmured.
“I thought you would fire a cannon at a human.”
At these words, the wizard next to him bit his lip.
‘f*ck… If you’ve done this, you should be relieved. Why are you doing this?’
Even a swordsman who knew how to exude sword skills could not survive being hit by hundreds of bullets and cannons from the front.
However, the wizard shook his head with anxiety that made his body tremble.
‘Not enough… I need to eat something bigger here.’
Along with the thoughts, the staff in the wizard’s hand shone.
The name of the wand bestowed by the Dormund family is ‘The Red Lizard’s Wrath.’
It was an artifact containing the power of a high-level flame spirit.
Huge flames spewing out from the staff attacked Arthur along with a torrent of cannonballs.
The wizard collapsed from exhaustion with a groaning sound that shook the heavens and the earth.
The Dormund soldiers were no different.
Because all the bullets were consumed, the gun did not fire any more.
A soldier murmured in such a situation.
“… Are you done?”
At this, the soldier next to him hit the soldier on the head.
“Hey you crazy bastard! Ominously, why would you say such a thing!”
“Ha, but… Isn’t it normal when this level of drawing is over!”
“It has to be over! But in this situation, if you talk like that, even a person who should die will come to life!”
The soldier who had been hit on the head grumbled.
Where the hell is that superstition?
At that time, the smoke that was carried by the driving rain and wind was collected.
Everyone present at the scene looked at the place where the shelling had been poured out a moment ago.
Harbin was no different.
Harbin, who was surprised to open his mouth, muttered.
“end… did you wake up?”
Hundreds of bullets and even the magic of the magician were bombarded, and what remained was the flames that had not yet been extinguished and the ground dug up.
And only a scorched human arm.
Because of that, I thought of Harbin without even realizing it.
‘Is he dead?’
I couldn’t believe it, but at first it looked like that.
The assailant’s body was not visible, only a scorched arm.
The man who killed more than 100 Dormund soldiers and gave himself defeat for the first time in a long time
is finally dead
At that moment, the pouring rain stopped like a lie.
“… … .”
When I looked up, the dark clouds that had been pouring down the rain had disappeared.
A faint sunlight was shining through it.
“… Is it sunny?”
With these words, the soldiers fell one by one.
“You’re not dreaming, are you?”
“The sun shines as soon as the stranger dies?”
It was a time when Harbin looked blankly at the sky amidst the whispers.
The intense sunlight shone from below my chin.
Harbin lowered his head, wondering why the sunlight was shining from under his chin.
At that moment, I saw a sword of red light piercing through my chest.
Harbin exclaimed and vomited blood.
At the same time, Arthur, who was standing behind Harbin, muttered while catching his breath.
“Uh… It was dangerous.”
“… … .”
“As expected, the trump card must always be hidden. If it wasn’t for Mr. Gnome’s help, I would have died.”
At these words, Harbin bled and turned his head.
The dark clouds cleared, and I saw a young man bathed in the pouring sunlight.
Harbin, who was watching the scene, coughed up blood and asked.
“paddle… cellar? Even dealing with spirits?”
Instead of answering his question, Arthur drew his magic sword.
The Dormund soldiers, immersed in their thoughts along with the scattered blood, flinched.
And belatedly, he could not hide his astonishment as he looked at Harbin, who was bleeding and dying.
At that cry, Arthur moved his steps and was about to approach the Dormund soldiers.
Harbin, who fell to the floor, shouted while grabbing Arthur’s ankle.
“Stop doing this!”
At that cry, Arthur averted his gaze, and the soldiers were startled.
“If you have a grudge against Dormund, you should have killed me! Do I have to see more blood than this!”
At his words, Arthur burst into exclamation.
“oh… That is also true.”
“okay. So please stop doing this… .”
“But Mr. Harbin. Will those soldiers run away while you die?”
At these words, Harbin’s eyes widened.
At the same time, a soldier gritted his teeth and picked up a spear and a sword.
It was no different from the wizard who had tied Arthur down for a while.
He spat out a curse and was preparing a spell.
The moment Harbin, who was watching the scene, was about to shout in surprise, Arthur opened his mouth first.
“And I’m sorry, but I have no intention of saving anyone in this room.”
“… … .”
“I intend to do the same. What Dormund did to Bayern. All the things they did to the people of my family.”
Harbin’s eyes widened.
“Bavaria… ? No way, the Bavaria of that empire.”
Arthur turned his head away without answering.
After that, he said to the Dormund soldiers who were glaring at him.
“Is everyone ready? Then shall we begin?”
The Dormund Wizard glared at Arthur with dying eyes and said.
“… Ian-sama and the family head will avenge this!”
“I will expect. Well, I’ll kill those two before that.”
* * *
Harbin coughed up blood.
“… … .”
He was dying, he thought.
‘Bavaria? As for Bavaria… Is it the Bayern I know?’
The only prestigious family comparable to Dormund.
A family with a long history that has been with the establishment of the empire.
Harbin muttered as he recalled that information.
‘Then, is that assailant a Bavarian swordsman?’
Along with the thought, Harbin vomited blood again.
Consciousness was gradually clouded by the pain in the chest that had been punctured by Arthur’s magic sword.
As long as he held the knife, he was prepared to die at any time, so he had no regrets, but he couldn’t help but be curious.
Is that guy really from Bavaria?
But why is that Bavarian raiding Dormund?
It was a time when his breathing gradually became rougher along with his complicated head.
The blood-stained young man abruptly stuck his head out.
“oh… You’re still alive. Are you a Knight of the 6th Circle?”
At his words, Harbin lowered his gaze and said.
“Did you kill them all?”
“no. They would have killed me if I hadn’t killed them in the first place.”
Harbin shut his mouth.
Arthur, who was watching the scene, sat down beside him and said.
“Your face has a lot of questions, Harbin.”
“… A lot. Will you answer me?”
“Well, since this is the last time, I will answer you.”
“Are you from the Bayern side?”
“Why is someone from Bavaria doing this?”
“Since he is from Bavaria, wouldn’t he do something like this?”
“… You’re from the Bayern side, so you’re doing this?”
Arthur turned his head and looked at Harbin.
“Think of what Dormund did to Bayern.”
“… … .”
“In order to destroy the normal family, they planted sejak, robbed the territory, committed childish things to make fun of the family head, and tried to poison the heir. Is that all?”
A cold smile crept across Arthur’s lips.
“They slaughtered and enslaved the people of Bavaria, and made the head of the family and their immediate bloodline a life in the gutter. But why should I not seek revenge?’
Harbin shuddered at the stories pouring out.
‘… Dormund did that?’
I couldn’t believe it.
Dormund is a family that takes the lead before anyone else for the eternal glory of the empire.
It wasn’t a family that would do what a third-rate bully would do.
Because of that, Harbin asserted.
“There’s no way Dormund would do that.”
“hmm… is it so?”
“okay! Dormund is… Dormund is… More righteous and brighter than any other family… .”
Harbin, who was speechless, shut his mouth.
Arthur, watching the scene, murmured.
“You know that too, right?”
“… … .”
“What I’ve done now, Dormund has done to other families, other powers, other tribes, and other countries.”
“… … .”
“Did you feel guilty then?”
Harbin Dormund’s pupils blurred.
Arthur, watching the change, murmured.
“He is dead.”
In the distant future, a rare murderer who served as the best knight in Dormund and killed more Bavarians than anyone else.
He died before he could even bloom.
Arthur slowly got up from his seat while looking at the end of Harbin.
“Seeing you reminds me of that.
With these words, Arthur closed his eyes that could not be closed.
“Ignorance is a sin. Go to hell and do some reflection, Harbin Lane.”
