The NTR Hero Knelt Down to the Demon King chapter 72
72 – Even if we all die.
A time of darkness.
A figure clad in a black robe quietly crept across the streets of Jerusalem.
Immediately after that, he arrived in a dark basement
There, four people, including him, were secretly hiding and waiting.
The colors are slightly different, but all of them wear robes and hide their appearance.
However, seeing them like this, the person who had just entered the room felt a deep sense of relief and asked cautiously.
“Is everyone okay?”
“Of course, I came in very neatly without being tracked down.”
To the words of the person wearing the black robe, the person wearing the gray robe who was guarding the entrance responded by locking the door.
They talk in a cautious voice with their voices lowered.
Even though this place was an underground secret room that was tightly blocked on all sides, nonetheless, the four of them were paying attention again, lest their voices be heard by someone.
“Good work, you made it all the way here safely.”
“Then you have suffered a lot by yourself, it must not have been easy to gather information in the middle of enemy lines.”
“It’s all thanks to this item. Thanks to this guy, I was able to disguise myself as a demon whenever I was in danger.”
A colleague with a slight smile on his lips while lowering his voice like that.
Right after that, the leader of the group, wearing a reddish-brown robe, cleared his throat slightly and continued speaking in a calm voice.
“By the way, how did the investigation go? I felt it on the way, but I think I heard there was an event.”
“Yeah, that’s right. Right now, the Demon Kingdom is busy holding a contest to select who is Narsil or Nazarite. In particular, they say that the atmosphere is getting hotter because it was immediately after winning the match.”
“Narsil.. I’ve heard of it. Electing the best warriors in the Demon Kingdom… It seemed like some kind of martial arts contest.”
The person wearing the blue robe spoke with a serious voice, while the person wearing the black robe nodded and replied.
“Yeah right. However, it’s safe to say that it’s not just a martial arts competition, it’s actually an accumulation of wealth. Right now, just in front of this place, street vendors are lined up, and high-ranking demons from other regions are also flocking to tour.”
“indeed… Somehow, the boundaries seemed very loose, but there was a reason for it.”
“Of course, that’s all the way into the city, and in practice, the vigilance against our targets has been further strengthened.”
At the words of the person wearing the black robe, those present nodded heavily.
And right after that, the leader of the group, a man in a maroon robe, spoke in a serious voice.
“But it doesn’t matter. As everyone knows, we are gathered here as the last hope of the entire continent. No matter what happens, you must make sure that the giant is successful.”
“of course. We must do that for the sake of peace on the continent.”
“Even if we all die… ”
“Continuing the legacy of former hero Ellen Savior… I will definitely hit the demon king’s head.”
Those who speak one word at a time with determined determination.
In response, the person wearing the maroon robe nodded, looked at the map of the city spread out in front of him, and continued.
“According to the information, the demon king usually stays here in the well-preserved demon castle, but I heard that during the tournament, he is supposed to watch the match in person from the arena here. It’s practically our only chance.”
“But you have to be careful. No matter how lax the guards are, I heard that the guards who are protecting the Demon King are formidable.”
“In addition, in the arena there may be monsters with abilities we never thought of. Depending on the circumstances, you might be caught before you even start.”
“I mean, this is also a kind of gamble. A gamble to sever the demon king’s head by risking our lives… ”
To put it bluntly, an assassination attempt on the demon lord can be said to be a particularly high-risk task among gambling.
However, nonetheless, at this moment they had already decided to go all-in on this risky game.
Now that the tribal union is collapsing and the energy of civil war is clearly felt,
For those who are in a situation where there is virtually no place to look back,
this moment right now.
It could be said that this was the only path to choose.
A large number of people gathered at the venue.
Looking at the thousands of demons filling the circular arena reminiscent of the Colosseum, I began to feel a little nervous in my heart.
“this… Is it greater than you thought? The atmosphere is no joke more than what I heard in the story.”
“Well, yes. Originally, it was one of the most important events of the Demon Kingdom, and the atmosphere became even hotter as the situation of victory was intertwined. So from that point of view, it definitely feels more heated than at the last competition 40 years ago.”
Elisa casually talks about a story from a long time ago in a voice that took my words for granted.
Looking at this, I was able to recognize once again the fact that, although it was new, she was very old, contrary to the appearance.
‘Well, right now, our demon king is said to be older than Elisa, but I can’t help but feel a little embarrassed every time I hear a story like this… ‘
With that thought in mind, I started looking around at the crowd of demons once again filling up the stands.
To be honest, at this moment, I had little concern or burden about the match itself.
I was the current me who had the fighting power to defeat even the demon king, the strongest of the demon kingdom.
Overwhelming physical strength and amount of mana. And from the moment I came to this world, to the skills and sense of combat that felt extremely familiar and natural.
Although the spirit contained in this body was perfect, I was right, but the software part of the battle had that of a warrior, so it was safe to say that there was almost no element for me to lose in this selection battle.
However, apart from these aspects, it was also true that fighting a battle while receiving the attention of many people was inevitably burdensome in many ways.
Although it attracted the attention of many enemies on the battlefield, it felt completely different from that.
Doing something in front of people who look at me with vague expectations and excitement was in many ways unfamiliar to me.
‘I’m not the type to get nervous about things like this, but it can’t be helped that it’s quite a burden.’
However, apart from these feelings, I had no intention of showing a great match that lived up to their expectations.
I just swing my sword at the opponent in front of me with all my strength.
As it is a place to show strength and be recognized for it,
I didn’t have the energy to show so-called ‘fan service’ or flashy ‘direction’.
‘Well, in a way, showing overwhelming power could be fan service, but…’
With that thought in mind, my gaze turned toward the special room located at the highest point of the venue.
Right after that, the appearance of the demon king began to come into my eyes.
Wearing a veil as at the banquet the other day, she was slowly looking around the arena.
And, seeing her like this.
Once again, I began to make up my mind for the future.
‘You have to show off your cool side. As a lover… I will win a complete victory so as not to disappoint the Demon King.”
With that thought in mind, I looked away from the competition venue as it was.
Even at this moment, I started looking at the people behind me.
A group of warriors sitting in what could be called a waiting room.
Some of them, like me and Elisa, automatically entered the finals with already proven skills to some extent,
A significant number of them were those who passed the preliminaries and reached this position.
‘There are a lot of guys whose names didn’t even exist in the original work. At least the corps commanders and the guards can measure their skills to some extent, but… What about those guys?’
So-called reclusive masters were everywhere, and this was a remarkable phenomenon in a world where the power of thousands could be unleashed by the might of these individuals.
Just like that, keeping in mind the part about the part about the risk of one.

My gaze started to go to the place where the match list had just been posted on the wall.
“Let’s see… My first opponent was… Are you a newcomer?”
Elisa nods as she examines the names on the bracket.
Certainly, it was the first time I had seen her counterpart, as I knew almost all the names of the characters in the original work.
“I’m also a newbie… It might be fun.”
Right after that, the dry voice of another person comes from right next to me with the feeling of not knowing when it appeared.
There are emoticons… .
No, corps commander Samuel was looking up at the match with a ●△● expression on his face.
‘Are certain talented players giving a rookie as part of it? I don’t know if there’s some sort of seed-like rule here, too. Then maybe me too… ‘
With that thought in mind, I continued to look for my name.
“Your first opponent is me. Warrior.”
The next moment, a woman’s voice came from behind me.
There, the Four Heavenly Kings of the Royal Guard in the same golden armor we saw before.
Nyathan was standing there radiating a spirited presence.
