The NTR Hero Knelt Down to the Demon King chapter 88
88 – Attack of evil demons
Thebes, a city located in the northern part of the Falcon Empire.
Although the size of its own population of 10,000 could not be said to be that large, it was nonetheless located in an important point of the empire, so it was one of the places with a fairly large floating population.
A group of black shadows appeared on the outskirts of this city in the thick darkness and were carefully examining the surroundings.
“What are the city limits?”
“As expected. Currently, there is no way to loose the boundaries of the city.”
“Anyway, as Shud-nim said, most of the troops seem to have left to be mobilized for the war against the elves.”
“I see… everything is as expected.”
At the words of his subordinates, Shud began to show a satisfied smile.
This plan was carried out under the order of the King of Darkness.
As the subject of the plan to raid the Falcon Empire by dressing up as a demon, Shude chose Thebes right here, excluding several other cities.
The reason was that, first of all, as it was located in the northern part of the empire, it was located in a position where it was easy to withdraw troops in response to the war in the southeast.
In addition, as the basic floating population is large, the defense was inevitably weak compared to other areas.
However, these parts are only additional reasons.
Truly, there was another reason why she chose Thebes as the attacking point.
A residential area currently located in the heart of the city.
There was a house where High Priest Eileen and her lover Torare currently reside.
As a high priest, she had to travel to various regions, so it was relatively advantageous for Aileen to settle down right here in Thebes, rather than elsewhere.
And, as an old colleague, I know these facts well.
Shud set this place as a target to kidnap the man he was in love with while carrying out his mission.
Shud, disguised as a demon using magical tools, completed preparations to launch an attack with about 100 witches, including himself.
Then, in her eyes, she began to see the figure of a subordinate urgently running this way.
“The eastern wall is said to have been prepared.”
“Let’s start now.”
“Okay, let’s get right into it.”
Shud and his subordinates began to act immediately after completing the final inspection.
In the thick darkness where there was no moon, they easily climbed the wall using magic.
Then, the Witches of the Nation of Darkness begin to move quickly while completely silencing the sound of their footsteps with soundproofing magic.
Even though they could see the soldiers standing guard negligently with their eyes wide open, they didn’t bother to touch it.
Because their purpose now was something bigger than a fight with the guards, who were just making a fuss.
“Fortunately, I haven’t been caught this far.”
The witches arrived at the warehouse area located quite a distance from the castle wall.
Right after that, they let out a slight sigh of relief, knowing that once they got here, the job was only halfway successful.
And right after looking around at those subordinates,
The squad leader who was entrusted with Shud’s instructions immediately gave them instructions in a firm voice.
As soon as her permission is lost, the witches begin to raise their magical powers.
Then they immediately aimed the canes they were holding in their hands at the warehouse buildings in front of them.
A colossal explosion occurred with the simultaneous detonation of 100 witches.
The resulting noise engulfed the entire city.
Residents who had been sleeping soundly in the darkness got up in a hurry and started running out of their homes to find out what was causing the noise.
“big… What do you mean?”
“I… there! Look over there!”
“what? I… What the heck… ?”
A shocking scene that began to be seen in the eyes of citizens.
It was the warehouse area that at this moment was engulfed in bright red flames, belching black smoke that was clearly visible even in the middle of the night.
The warehouse area is being swallowed up by a frighteningly bright fire.
Recognizing that their property stored there is still turning into ashes every minute, the citizens began to move urgently to rectify the situation by any means.
“damn! Hurry up! If we continue like this, our wealth will turn to ashes!”
“Come on, turn off the lights! If that doesn’t work, I’ll have to get something out of it!”
Residents hurriedly rushed to the warehouse area with buckets and carts.
But right after that.
They had no choice but to stand still in their place at the unexpected scene they began to see.
The beings who somehow stop them from running to reduce the damage…
It was a group of demons with black wings and horns.
“this… what is this… ”
“How…how are the demons here?”
Citizens began to be caught in confusion and fear by the appearance of unexpected beings.
Looking at them like this, the demons straightened the staffs and swords they were holding in their hands and began releasing their magic power.
“stomach… danger… !”
The attacks of demons pouring in on the defenseless citizens.
The mass of flame that was emitting a terrible light in the dark took the lives of the citizens who were standing in the lead in an instant.
“Run away! It’s an attack by demons!”
“The devils from hell have invaded this far!”
Due to the aftermath of the tribal war that lasted for a long time, the existence of demons among ordinary people was no more and no less than demons who unconditionally hostile to humans.
And now, according to their common sense, the demons were indiscriminately attacking ordinary civilians.
Right after he horribly slaughtered those who were not even armed, let alone willing to fight.
The demons no longer pursued the fleeing citizens and began to disappear into the darkness.
and after a while
When the soldiers arrived belatedly after grasping the situation, there were already no demons and no one else left.
There is only one thing left.
There were only weapons of the Demon Kingdom lying on the floor and some tokens indicating their identity as demons.
As a result, the lords and generals who manage Thebes naturally came to the conclusion that this incident was the revenge of demons who crossed the sea.
And so, they have not arrived at the truth about this matter.
What is the identity of those who have carried out this work?
And even what incidentals happened along the way.
They have not achieved anything exactly in their power.
‘It’s a bit breathtaking.’
Shud moves secretly alone in the dark.
At this moment, she was moving as much as she could to get to her destination as quickly as possible.
Although she managed to get away from her subordinates with a suitable excuse, she still did not have much time left.
Soon, her men are set to make a fuss in the warehouse area according to plan.
If that happens, surely many of the citizens in this city will move out of their homes to find out what caused the explosion.
And among them, perhaps the man she is looking for… Torare might also be included.
‘If that happens, finding Torare-sama in this city will be like finding a needle in the desert. You have to arrive somehow before that… ‘
Feeling so impatient, Shud quickly flies toward Eileen’s house, which is finally starting to be seen.
“! kuh… ”
The next moment, a loud explosion sounded in her ears.
As a result, Shud concentrated all his nerves toward Eileen’s house, worrying that Torare might come out of the house.
With the determination that if, by any chance, Torare appears there, I will never miss it after that.
However, her concerns did not seem to show the momentum of opening the door, and Shude automatically let out a sigh of relief and succeeded in arriving there.
‘Could it be that I fell asleep already and couldn’t wake up? If so, that would be great for me, but… ‘
With such thoughts in mind, Shud cautiously approached the house.
But right after that.
Her eyes began to see light streaming in from behind the thick curtains, which automatically made her question.
‘what? If the light is on, it must be that it is still awake… ‘
Depending on what you think, it could be that Torare was simply staying inside the house, unwilling to get involved in this affair.
However, this was a part that could be considered strange enough considering Torare’s personality, which usually reacts quite sensitively to danger.
‘What the hell is going on?… Is it possible he’s doing something inside?’
While thinking about that, Shud carefully opened the door with magic and entered the house.
Immediately after that, what she saw was a dark hallway and a room with dim light coming out of the end.
A strange ominous feeling felt in an instant.
Recognizing that, Shud arrived at the place where the light was flowing while carefully calling Torare’s name.
Then Shude slowly opened the door.
and right after that.
In the scene she began to see,
As it was, I was deeply shocked.
What I saw in front of my eyes were the figures of two people.
One she knows well… No, I know it well. The figure of Torrera I thought I had.
And another one she’d never seen before.
It was the appearance of a certain woman who had a relationship with Torare, without a single thread on.
