The Duke’s Madness - Chapter 2
The Duke’s Madness chapter 2
Bill shouted in bewilderment.
Because Arthur didn’t stutter.
But it seemed to be his own delusion.
The dumb Confucius stuttered again.
At this, Bill’s expression was anger and bewilderment.
distorted with other emotions.
To be insulted like this by a ‘dumb’ who came to harass you to relieve stress?
So it was when I raised my hand in anger.
The ‘dumb’ Confucius laughs and lifts something.
Blindfolded, Bill holds his breath.
This is because what was in the hands of the mute Confucius were human ‘eyeballs’.
Bill, speechless, groped my right eye.
However, I couldn’t feel the touch in my eyes that should have been there.
A shocked Bill opens his mouth.
Bill was about to let out a belated scream.
But Arthur moved first.
Arthur took off the clothes he was wearing and stuffed them into Bill’s mouth as he tried to scream.
Bill, speechless, tried to rebel, but to no avail.

No matter what method he used, Arthur’s body was as heavy as a stone.
To the point that even a 3-year-old could not overcome it.
In the meantime, Arthur rolled his fist and slapped Bill on the right cheek with all his might.
A cheerful sound resounded, but Arthur tilted his head.
‘Because the power is weak, the RBI is not accurate.’
I guess it was because I wasn’t in perfect shape.
So I forcibly removed the necklace from Bill’s neck and wrapped it around it with my right hand.
‘If there is a pivot point, the lack of grip strength will be filled to some extent.’
I raised my fist again with my thoughts.
Then, a clearer sound than before rang out.
Bill struggled, but still couldn’t move his body.

Not even a scream came out.
Bill felt the fear in it and held back his tears.
However, these tears further stimulated Arthur’s violence.
puck! puck! puck!
The punching gets stronger.
Thanks to that, the bridge of his nose sank and his two front teeth fell out and he rolled on the floor.

Not to mention blood.
Eventually, the quick-witted Bill stopped crying and started begging.
It was very pitiful to see him with a hideously distorted face, but Arthur tilted his head.
‘Am I begging you to see me now?’
When you bullied your past self, who never stopped punching you even when you begged for that?
‘no way… Humans can’t do that. At least if you have a conscience.
So, dismissing it as an illusion, he started punching again.
In the end, the punching stopped right after Bill passed out.
Arthur, who slapped the fainting Bill on the cheek for the last time, breathed heavily.
“I am not feeling well. It’s just that I’m out of breath.”
With these words, Arthur, who wiped his bangs in sweat, looked away.
I saw Bill, whose face had been horribly disfigured by the previous punch.
After watching the scene for a while, Arthur muttered with a serious expression.
“It seems that things have definitely returned to normal… If you look at the fact that they didn’t kill you, but just plucked out their eyes.”
If he had been his old self, he would have killed Bill right away.
But now, he quietly took out his eyeballs.
This difference was larger than expected.
‘If I killed him, I wouldn’t have been able to fix it, but since I didn’t kill him, it’s possible to fix it, right?’
Let go of your anger right now, and take care of your business.
Considering the past, this is a huge improvement.
“Now that I’m back to my senses, things become this easy?”
Arthur stuck out his tongue and looked away.
Then I saw Bill’s eyeballs rolling on the floor.
Arthur, who picked up the eyeball, lifted the fainting Bill’s eyelid and forcibly inserted it.
Even in the midst of fainting, Bill’s body trembled as if there was pain.
In the meantime, Arthur, who checked to see if the eyeballs went in well, murmured.
“I’m sure this isn’t enough to take care of yourself, right?”
So, it was time to find a way to make the fight look a little more amicable.
Suddenly, a question crossed my mind.
“Come to think of it… Will my lineage come back?”
Arthur thought while stroking his chin.
Bavaria’s hidden bloodline ability.
An abnormal ability that can usurp the abilities of other bloodlines.
In the past, I hadn’t confirmed whether the blessed ability that had allowed me to achieve half of my revenge had returned.
‘I couldn’t confirm exactly… The best way to see if you can use your powers is to inhale other bloodlines.’
However, it may be a coincidence, but Bill, who had just collapsed, possessed the ability of the lineage.
‘The Dormund family was famous for producing outstanding elementalists, right?’
With the thought, Arthur raised the corner of his mouth.
After that, he moves his body and puts Bill’s blood flowing out into his palm.
The moment I gathered about a handful of that amount, I inhaled the accumulated blood in my hand.
I felt dizzy at the fishy taste going down my esophagus.
However, Arthur overcame it and quietly closed his eyes.
At that moment, the Bavarian bloodline awoke and began violently consuming Dormund’s blood.
‘oh… The lineage ability was also awake.’
With a murmur, Arthur opens his eyes again.
Then, a spirit that had not been seen before was seen hiding in a flower pot by the window.
“My name is Arthur. What is your name?”
The spirit did not answer the question.
Usually, if you see a spirit, you can talk to it, but it was strange.
‘Is something wrong?’
Arthur, who had been stroking his chin, immediately shrugged.
‘It doesn’t matter what… The important thing is that the ability of the Bavarian lineage is awake. And at this point, Bill Dormund’s bloodline ability, elemental magic, was stolen.’
And spiritism showed an excellent effect on treatment.
It was because the water spirit’s healing technique possessed a superior healing power than that of the priest’s priest.
Maybe I can fully cure my current broken body condition.
“and… Now that I’m back to my senses, I’m lucky. Do you think things work out like this?”
Arthur nodded and stood on the other side of the mirror.
‘All that’s left is a clean aftermath. But this is no problem.’
After staring at me in the mirror for a moment, Arthur clenched his fists.
And hit the right cheek.
Blood flowed with a dull blow.
Arthur patted my face and muttered.
“Um… To make it look like a fight between equals, I should hit you more, maybe?”
* * *
An unexpected incident occurred in the peaceful Bavarian family.
“Do, young boy!”
At the center was the dumb Arthur Bavaria of the Bavarian family and the third son of the Dormund family.
“What the hell is this… .”
Mrs. Kana Dortmund, who came running as soon as she heard that the incident had occurred, was speechless as she looked at the horrors in the room.
It was bloody all over.
The pure white marble was stained with blood so much that it was impossible to distinguish whose blood it belonged to.
And on the marble, my son was lying on the floor with crab foam.
Arthur Bayern bursts into tears beside him!
Angry at this, Kana Dormund shouted.
“What is this, Gongja-nim!!”
“What is this about!!!”
However, like Bill, Arthur, who was covered in blood all over his body, did not explain the case as she wanted.
It was just a continuous burst of crying.
In the end, it was time for Kana, who could not hold back her anger, to get up and approach Arthur.
The current owner of the Duke of Bavaria burst into the room.
At the appearance of Yonel Bayern, Cana Dormund hesitated and stepped back.
“My son. What’s happen?! Why is your face like this again?”
“That, that… .”
Arthur finally answered Yonel’s appearance.
“Tongue, my brother hit me… .”
Of course, the answer was difficult to understand.
It was because of the stretched pronunciation.
But Yonel managed to understand and asked a question.
“Prince Bill Dormund hit you?”
“Why did you hit me? Did Prince Bill Dormund hit you first?”
“Yeah. Then ah… I couldn’t stand it, so I hit you together.”
Everyone in the room grasps the truth of the incident and looks at the stunned Bill.
“… You hit my son?”
Yonel Bayern murmured, and Cana Dormund flinched.
But soon he comes to his senses and shouts.
“Your Excellency the Duke! It’s unreasonable to see it as a simple fight!”
Bill was Dormund’s youngest child, and Kana Dormund was quite partial to him.
It was because he was lagging behind his other siblings and always getting scolded.
But since Bill was passed out and bleeding, it was only natural for her to be excited.
However, her momentum quickly faded at the angry voice of Yonel Bavaria, who was usually gentle.
“Then tell me. What is it if not a simple fight?”
“That, that… .”
“You’re saying that my son and Prince Bill risked their lives in a duel?”
“Don’t raise your voice. My son is amazed.”
Cana Dormund flinched and finally lowered her head.
It’s a duke that’s going to ruin, but it’s a duke anyway.
In front of the owner of the duchy, Cana Dormund was just the wife of an ordinary count.
“Sevischan. Take Prince Bill to the doctor.”
“Mrs. Kana… Talk to me later.”
Jonel Bayern, who quickly sorted out the situation, cleared his expression and turned his head only after everyone had left the room.
“My dear son. Did you really fight Bill?”
At the question, Arthur stopped crying and nodded.
“Why did you fight?”
“You hit me… .”
“Is that true?”
“… … .”
Yonel was silent for a moment. Arthur felt a little sorry.
Before returning to the past, at this time, he must have been just a son who was infinitely weak to Yonel.
I would have thought it strange if my personality had changed to the point of tearing out someone else’s eyeballs overnight.
But the words that came out of her mouth were unexpected.
“Good job. our son okay… It’s better to hit than to go somewhere and get hit.”
“Now I see you have a spirit. I fought with my older brother who was 3 years older and won.”
Arthur blinked for a moment at Yonel’s unexpected answer, but soon burst into laughter.
“I think he will become a good knight when he grows up, my son.”
Arthur smiled at his mother’s consolation.
Yonel also smiled brightly at the innocent laugh.
“Take care in your room. If you are sick anywhere, tell me.”
“Where are you going, mother?”
“Go to Prince Bill and come back. I will tell you not to approach my son again.”
Arthur nodded, and Yonel switched places with the councilors who had entered the room.
After that, I thought about it while being treated for the wounds I had inflicted on myself.
‘Well done. hmm… But the day will come when this prejudice will come in handy.’
if Arthur. If it wasn’t for the prejudice that he had this disability, he would never have gone over like this.

No matter how much I hit myself in the face and ruined it, Bill’s condition was not very good.
However, the story is different if the one who made Bill’s condition like that is the one who is called mute.
Even though he is the only heir to the duke’s family because he stutters, he is looked upon with pity.
To be beaten by such a self means that, in a way, you have become worse than a dumb person.
Due to the nature of aristocrats who care about face, this would not be a big problem.
After organizing his thoughts like that, Arthur groaned at the pain in his throbbing cheek.
Blood was spilled to make the incident look like a fistfight between two boys, and the inside of the mouth was torn in the process.
“Are you very sick, Bocchan?”
“… It hurts a little bit.”
“this. You’ve been ripped up to the inside of your mouth. Let’s see.”
The doctor who was examining the inside of Arthur’s mouth suddenly praised his notice.
“By the way, our young master. That’s really great. Even though he is small, he fought with Master Bill and won.”
“I am strong.”
“you’re right. Now that I see it, Bocchan is much stronger than Confucius Bill. Prince Bill will never enter the master’s room again!”
The legislators next to him nodded their heads.
“This fight… … . It’s a compliment, but shouldn’t a man have spirit?
“that’s right. Well done, really!”
At the words of the lawmakers, Arthur nodded.
“That’s why I pulled him out!! eyeball… Ral”
“… What did you pick?”
The legislators shook their heads.
Arthur Bayern said something eagerly, but it was not easy to understand his meaning because of his slack pronunciation.
However, I didn’t think deeply about it.
Arthur Bayern would sometimes say things I couldn’t understand.
So, as usual, it was time to focus on the healing of the wounds by giving them a good match.
Kana Dormund’s screams echoed throughout the mansion.
“Beeeil—!! Eyes, eyes, why are the eyes missing… !”
Surprised lawmakers look at the visit.
Then, involuntarily, a member of the legislature averted his gaze.
I saw Arthur smiling innocently.
The lawmaker, who stared at the figure, remembered Arthur’s words a moment ago.
‘I can’t believe it was just an eyeball… It’s not an eyeball, is it?’
After thinking about it, he immediately burst out laughing.
What kind of person in the world plucks out his eyeballs and laughs innocently like that?
If there is such a guy, he’s probably insane.
And Arthur Bayern was no madman.
‘He’s a fool, but he’s the kindest aristocrat in the world.’
That’s the only heir to the Bavarian family.
It was Arthur Bayern.
