The Duke’s Madness - Chapter 30
The Duke’s Madness chapter 30
Genie, who had barely been revived thanks to the potion, fiddled with her stomach.
The hole in the ship was filled thanks to the potion.
However, he lost so much blood that his whole body was weak.
Realizing that he really almost died because of that, Ginny raises her head once again.
“oh···. Blood tastes good, this.”
Arthur’s murmur was heard through his developed hearing.
Startled, Ginny shook her shoulders.
‘Crazy guy… crazy guy Why the hell do you eat blood?’
It was only once or twice, but as it continued, it was now to the point where I felt fear beyond fear.
In the meantime, Arthur raised the corner of his mouth as he licked Ginny’s blood from the corner of his mouth.
[no… Arthur. How did you do it?]
[uh? Has it evolved?]
Gnome and Undine evolved from lower level spirits to intermediate level spirits.
The two were no longer fairies, but a boy and a girl.
Arthur smiled and asked at the obvious change.
‘Undine, how is Mr. Gnome? Are you okay?’
[yes. It’s so good, but… How did you do it, Arthur? My strength has suddenly increased!]
[that’s right. How did you do it?]
At the spirits’ fuss, Arthur puts his hand to his mouth.
‘That’s a secret. Anyway, congratulations. Become an intermediate spirit.’
Gnome and Undine tilted their heads.
However, without questioning, he cautiously approached and grabbed Arthur’s hand.
Arthur burst out laughing at the action that reminded him of Irene.
‘hmm···. At this level, it’s worth saving Genie.’
Of course, the difference between the lower level spirits and the middle level spirits was different.
Until now, undines and gnomes have used nature to create changes, but now they can go beyond change and even create miracles.
‘Because I’m definitely coming back to my senses, I know how to benefit from this… You’ve grown up, Arthur Bayern.’
Arthur looks at Ginny with thoughts.
Ginny, who met our eyes, was startled and stiffened her shoulders.
“I… Mr. Ginny?”
“No, tell me!”
Arthur is perplexed and asks.
“uh···. Did your tone suddenly change?”
“Are you Ginny?”
Gina couldn’t answer right away.
Of course, I was spitting out all kinds of curse words inside.
But he didn’t show any displeasure.
A madman who slices up corpses and laughs.
Thinking this far, Ginny replied very politely.
“Coming to think of it, I think I spoke too much…”
“Oh, there! Dunn’s age… There may be more.”
Arthur narrowed his eyes and replied.
“I am 17 years old?”
“It’s okay if you speak comfortably.”
Ginny also blinked at Arthur’s answer.
However, he soon came to his senses and gathered his brows together.
17 years old? What bullsh*t is this again?
‘This bastard… Are you trying to find fault with me and kill me?’
Ginny shakes her head furiously with the thought.
But I couldn’t understand why Arthur was saying this.
Why would he fake his age as seventeen under these circumstances?
Because of that, Ginny laughed.
Reminds me of the old saying that you can’t spit on a smiling face.
“hahahaha! What a funny joke!”
“I won’t ask your age! Everyone has secrets they want to hide!”
Arthur, who was silent, scratched his head.
‘what···. You seem to have changed a lot?’
I can’t explain it in words, but the person named Ginny has changed.
That too in many ways.
I doubted the sudden change, but Arthur nodded soon.
This is because the current genie is definitely better than the genie from before.
After thinking this far, Arthur opened his mouth again.
“Well then, Mr. Ginny.”
“I want to ask you one thing, are we colleagues now?”
Ginny’s eyes go up.
In response, Ginny burst out laughing.
The guy who punctured my stomach a moment ago is talking about a colleague?
However, Ginny, not wanting to make a hole again, smiled brightly.
“Definitely a colleague. Dunn.”
“I thought so from the beginning”
“Oh nice. Then may I ask you a favor?”
Arthur pointed to the office.
“I will be leaving this place from now on, but Mr. Ginny, please escort the client. I don’t know how the situation is going, but I have to complete the request, right?”
* * *
Arthur, who penetrated the office, was able to find the fainted Tartan president.
However, Arthur, who looked at his condition, could see that he did not faint due to simple shock.
“I took poison, this…”
The airway is abnormally blocked, and breathing is rapid.
It was evidence of poisoning.
‘Was there an intruder? Or by yourself?’
Arthur, who had been thinking about it, concluded that the latter was more plausible.
The reason was that there were no signs of intrusion.
“Can you treat me, Undy?”
[Leave it to me, Arthur!]
With the answer, Undine casts an ability.
The moment the refreshing energy passed Arthur’s nose, the complexion of President Tartan improved remarkably.
Arthur admired Undine’s ability to blow away the poison at once.
“and···. Undine. Aren’t your abilities improved too much?”
[hehehe thanks to Arthur!]
At Undine’s answer, Arthur quietly reached out and covered Undine’s eyes.
Undine tilted her head at the sudden action, but soon smiled brightly and clung to Arthur’s arm.
Arthur, who turned his body as it was, looked at the Tartan president.
and smacked his cheek.
With a rough sound, the face of Tartan’s president turns.
However, he did not wake up, and Arthur slapped him on the cheek again.
clap clap clap!
The gnomes and genies open their mouths at the harsh sound that reverberates in succession.
‘Hey, that crazy bastard! Why are you slapping people on the cheek all of a sudden?’
[Muh, I’m scared… .]
In the meantime, when President Tartan didn’t wake up even though his cheeks were swollen, Arthur smacked his lips.
‘Hmm… Troublesome, this. I have to ask about the necromancer, and I have to hear about the situation.’
But on the other hand, there were good points.
I had to get out of this building anyway, because non-combatants like President Tartan would have been better off fainting.
Thinking this far, Arthur entrusted the Tartan president to Ginny.
It was a genie with a drawn face, but it was easy to carry the president of Tartan.
That was when I left the office again.
Ginny looked at the hallway covered in blood and flesh and asked cautiously.
“I… Mr. Dunn?”
“that… If you fire support while carrying the Tartan boss, it might be a little late. Is that okay?”
Arthur answered without turning his head.
“Oh, it’s okay. Actually, I was worried, so I entrusted Mr. Ginny as president of Tartan.”
“In my experience, people who have been through the same thing as Ginny always take sudden actions to repay their grudge. But if you’re carrying Mr. Tartan on your back, you can’t do that, right?”
Ginny opened her mouth.
Arthur laughed as he explained.
“Well, I don’t think Ginny would.”
Ginny, who was watching that smile, rubbed my goosebumps arm.
At the same time, I made a firm commitment.
‘Even if you fire support, never aim at the back of the head. I’m going to use that teleport-like ability to slit my throat.’
With a murmur, Ginny swallowed dry saliva.
A faint silence descended on him.
Arthur, awakening his senses as much as possible, recalled the information of Adventure Pharmaceuticals.
The headquarters of Adventure Pharmaceuticals, led by Tartan, was located in the C-44 area, which was quite out of the commercial district.
Instead, the entire large branch was used, making the headquarters unusually large.
‘It’s said that if you do well, you can get away without getting caught… I don’t know how to do this.’
Borrowing the help of Undine and Gnome would solve it quickly, but it took the level of the Necromancer I encountered earlier.
It was because he could now see those who had no affinity for spirits due to his increased presence as he became a mid-level spirit.

Not wanting to hurt the spirits, Arthur pondered and asked Genie.
“Miss Ginny? Could you tell me the way?”
“… What is the road?”
“yes. This mission is to escort the Tartan president, right? You don’t have to face the enemy.”
Ginny nods exaggeratedly.
“That’s an accurate description. Dunn.”
“There is no need to deal with that necromancer. Just in time, I find my way. We will guide you.”
Arthur blinked at Ginny’s attitude of being so kind.
However, it was meant to be soon.
‘Judging by the sudden change in attitude, Mr. Genie is also a person with a screw missing.’
Trying to understand such people only hurts my head.
How can a normal person understand an abnormal person?
Meanwhile, Ginny took the lead.
The slow progress began to speed up as soon as she stood in front of her.
In the process, several undead popped out, but Arthur’s blade fell on his neck before he could even scream.
After answering calmly, Arthur walked out again, and Ginny swallowed dryly.
‘Old Willett. when you’ll come. Please save me from that monster.’
With a murmur, it was time to touch the magic transmission device that Willet handed over to use in case of danger.
Arthur, who was leading the way, gestured to me.
Ginny, who stopped at the same time, murmured startled.
“Yes, it is blocked.”
Arthur scratched his chin.
100 undead were blocking the exit as a wall.
You can go out if you want to forcefully break through, but Arthur, who was caught by the tartan boss behind him, turned his head.
“Is there anywhere else, Mr. Ginny?”
“According to the blueprints I saw, that was the only exit. You have to destroy the outer wall to escape to another place.”
Arthur ponders over the answer.
And the moment you pull out your knife and walk forward, Ginny shouts.
“He-will you fight?”
“yes. The road is only over there, and if we go through another place, the necromancer will notice and come after us anyway, right?”
“At that point, it doesn’t seem too bad to decide here. Please give me some support, Mr. Ginny.”
Ginny shuts up.
In the meantime, Arthur, holding a meteorite sword, stepped forward.
In response, a voice came from the air.
Arthur raised his head and looked up.
The necromancer who had just escaped was floating in the air.
After confirming the location, Arthur immediately pulled the trigger of the pistol.
However, it was a necromancer who had already cast a barrier.
Looking at the missed bullet, Arthur licked his lips.
Unfortunately, the bullet fired a moment ago was the last shot.
“It’s awful… What kind of greeting do you replace with a pistol?”
“I don’t think it’s necessary to say hello.”
“That’s right. It’s not like we’re saying goodbye.”
With the answer, a necromancer descends from the air.
Seeing that, Arthur grabbed the meteorite sword and was about to go into battle.
The Necromancer opened his mouth.
“I said that when you come to the first floor, your opponent will be there. Do you remember?”
“… Did you say something like that?”
“I did it. So don’t play with me, play with him. It will be a lot of fun.”
As the necromancer gave off an unpleasant laugh and withdrew, the 100 undead blocking the entrance also withdrew at the same time.
At that moment, Arthur’s eyes widened at the heavy noise that resonated.
A warning bell rings in my head along with exclamations.
At the warning from Bavaria’s blood, Arthur unknowingly straightened his sword.
‘what? Why do I feel like this all of a sudden?’
It was when Arthur’s gaze narrowed along with a murmur.
A very gigantic man enters the building holding a huge greatsword.
Outwardly, he looks normal except for his large physique.
But Arthur knew.
The energy of the rough ring that I felt from that man.
Arthur, speechless, blinked his eyes.
And Ginny, who was escorting the Tartan president from behind Arthur, couldn’t hide his astonishment when he found the man standing behind the Necromancer.
“Who is that man? Do you know who it is, Mr. Ginny?”
Ginny answered the question with a trembling chin.
“slaughterer… I’m a butcher. A very famous lunatic murderer among the people of the underworld…”
Arthur raised his eyes at the familiar words.
‘oh. That swordsman is a madman?’
In the meantime, the Necromancer shouts.
“It won’t be easy! This dude is in the 5th circle and has bloodlines just like you! Have you ever heard of a ‘troll’? It is the lineage of a monster that existed a thousand years ago!”
At the shout, Arthur tilts his head and asks a question.
“What is a troll?”
“Simply put, immortality…”
The necromancer’s words cut off.
At the same time, Arthur and Genie are startled by his head exploding.
“I’m sorry… You talk about my abilities well.”
With these words, Taken pushed the necromancer and walked out.
The necromancer, who was revived just in time, complained while rubbing his back.
“Both this guy and that guy think my head is a toy…”
In the meantime, Arthur, who faced Taken, raised the corner of his mouth.
“It’s dangerous, this.”
“What are you talking about?”
“You. It’s really dangerous. I never thought I would meet someone like this.”
At Arthur’s words, Taken tilted his head.
“Anything like that, you’re laughing.”
“Oh, that’s a habit.”
Arthur wipes the smile from his lips as he fixes his meteoric sword.
“But laughing at Mr. Taken is a luxury. I want to be sincere for the first time. this time···. It looks really dangerous.”
