The Prince Wants To Retire - Chapter 124
The Prince Wants To Retire chapter 124
47. A hidden room! (2)
The assassin who blocked Glenn’s sword was pushed back.
Although the assassin was unscathed by the joint attack of the SS, Glenn’s blow was so severe that he even coughed lightly.
“Did you break through the wall?”
Glenn does not answer the assassin’s question.
Seeing him like that, the assassin smiled.
“It’s still immature, but it’s pretty heavy.”
Glenn, who said that he broke through the wall, had just risen to mastery.
So, the assassin was relaxed.
However, that leeway was shattered the moment they collided once again.
“you… … .”
“You talk a lot.”
Having said that, Glenn made the Auror Blade with all his power.
At the same time, the moment he swung the sword, the space shook, instantly annihilating hundreds of slashes that the assassin attacked with all his might.
Then the assassin began to panic.
Because Glenn was stronger than expected. He even had in mind that Glenn would have reached Master, but Glenn was stronger than that.
“Is this all?”
As the imperial palace was destroyed, Kariel, who came out with Arsuna’s magic, looked at the assassin tied to Glenn and said:
Then the assassin started laughing like crazy.
“No way. There’s no way I could have prepared only this for catching the apostles of God.”
The moment he said that, the corpses of the demon dragons appeared and began to coalesce.
As demon dragons united in various places, a monster with a bizarre shape was created.
“Protect Your Majesty!”
Toto shouted, but the Imperial Palace knights, including the SS, were in a hurry to stop the assassins.
The knights of the imperial palace followed, but it seemed faster for the giant monster to come to Kariel’s place than to break through the remaining demon dragons.
Nevertheless, with a relaxed expression, he asked the assassin fighting Glenn.
“Is this all?”
Seeing Kariel ask again, the eyes of the assassin who was fighting Glenn shook.
“Looks like everything. Then it was done.”
The moment he said that, small balls of fire appeared above Kariel’s head.
The moment Kariel’s command was given, the three fireballs swelled in unison, creating a gigantic shape.
The assassin who saw it smiled again.
It was as if he had already expected this. But this time, his smile had to disappear.
This is because, like Glenn, Kariel’s beasts showed a stronger appearance than expected.
Giant wolves and fire spirits rampaged, and a fire giant controlled them from the center.
– Don’t run amok! Do you want to be scolded by Kariel later!
Although they were summoned beasts who ran rampant here and there, they showed overwhelming majesty against corpse giants born from the corpses of demon dragons.
“There are benefits to training.”
The days of training with Glenn and the Duke of Wilkshire while slaughtering monsters.
When these two became masters, they didn’t use much strength, but when they couldn’t cross the wall, they showed a mighty majesty to the point that it would be difficult to fight against Kariel’s summoned beasts at the same time.
「Despise the weak!」
If someone were to describe Kariel’s current state, it would be like this.
It was difficult to become a master, but it was Kariel who showed overwhelming power in the level below.
That’s why, no matter how many corpse golems came, the giant summoned beasts were burning them with overwhelming majesty.
An assassin who backs away and puts on a dazed expression at the sight of disbelief.
Looking at him like that, Kariel gave an order to Glenn.
“Yes! your majesty.”
“Be sure to capture it alive. He has a lot to ask.”
Glenn lowered his head slightly at Kariel’s command, revealing his strength.
As the assassins died one by one, seeing the palace knights gathering around Kariel, Glenn was able to attack the assassins with all his might.
Until now, he had been defensive to protect Kariel, but from now on, the assassin’s expression distorted as he began to swing his sword as if there was nothing to be tough about.
“Damn it… … .”
“Do you think you can run away?”
As the space of the root where the assassin was trying to escape shuddered and became contemplative, he crossed both swords to defend.
Fire magic flew towards the assassin as if he had waited for that moment.
As the superheated red light flew like a laser, the body of the assassin was pushed back despite receiving the magic with all its power.
“It’s the revenge of the past.”
As soon as Arsuna spoke with a cold expression on her face, Toto’s giant sword fell, followed by Iris and Brion’s attacks.
“You have no pride!”
The assassin, who was attacked by the SS, burst into rage at Glenn, but Glenn responded without a change of expression.
“That self-respect is nothing compared to His Majesty’s orders.”
While Glenn drove in the assassins with the help of the SS, the demon dragons and assassins who had attacked the palace died one by one.
An assassin who gathers all his strength while biting his lip while watching it.
“It is self-destructive. Stop it!”
At Kariel’s command, Glen shouted at the guards and swung his sword with all his might.
Then, the bodyguards quickly retreated from the assassin.
At the same time, Glenn’s aura accurately hit the assassin.
Glenn’s slash that distorts the assassin’s left arm and heart in one shot.
At the same time, it began to distort the surrounding space.
Glenn’s attack with all his might was powerful enough to distort the space itself.
But that wasn’t enough.
Because it was an explosion that the Master was risking his life to cause, Glenn’s attack didn’t completely destroy it, and it caused an explosion.
Then, the knights of the imperial palace hurriedly created a barrier and stood in front of Kariel.
“Protect Your Majesty!”
The imperial palace knights shouted urgently.
At the same time, the wizards also threw their bodies and spread defensive magic in front of Kariel.
However, despite their efforts, nothing happened.
“uh? this… … .”
“how… … .”
As everyone looked at the assassin in bewilderment, the giant hand of the fire giant wrapped around the assassin’s place.
– It hurts badly.
With the voice of the giant, only a gentle shock wave spread out.
Surt, who absorbed even the shock wave, frowned and looked at Kariel for a moment, then changed into a small one and disappeared.
Then the giant wolf and the spirit also disappeared.
“I’ll give you a prize later.”
After muttering like that, Kariel looked ahead.
An assassin who survived an attempt to self-destruct.
It was felt that the body that should have been torn to pieces was being maintained by an unknown force.
“Your Majesty, it is dangerous.”
At Glenn’s warning, Kariel didn’t go any further and looked at the assassin.
Then the assassin, floating in the air with the power of black, bizarrely twisted his neck and looked at Kariel.
– It’s fun. Is God worth the sacrifice?
“… … Who are you?”
– Ghosts of the past.
The assassin who answered Kariel’s question as a ghost.
Cariel frowned at him and asked.
“Who are you? Are you a demon?”
As far as he knew, the demons did not have this kind of power.
I was curious because even the Demon King did not have such power.
‘It’s a guy I’ve never seen in my previous life.’
Thinking so, Kariel glared at the assassin. He quietly stared into Kariel’s eyes and said,
-Well. If you are curious, come to the East Continent and find out for yourself.
Having said that, something slowly closed its eyes. Then, slowly, the black energy began to escape from the assassin’s body.
The moment the black energy was completely drained, the assassin’s body, which had reached master level, ‘Pung!’ and exploded
The body, which was forcibly held together by the black energy, could no longer hold out and burst.
Tarion approached from afar and hurriedly checked Kariel’s condition.
However, Kariel said that it was okay for him to make such a fuss and gave the order.
“Look at the situation right now. The Imperial Knights will check the enemies remaining in the Imperial Palace, and the Central Army will stabilize the capital!”
Everyone bowed their heads at Kariel’s command.
“Tarion, you need to figure out the war situation right now and bring it to me.”
After giving the order, Kariel went straight to the office.
* * *
After a while, Tarion rushed into the office.
“A legion of golems has appeared in the East. I think Talos prepared it.”
“Did Roman also move?”
“It will be difficult with the Eastern Army alone.”
Tarion nodded at Kariel’s words.
“I still asked for help.”
“Take off some of the Central Army and dispatch them. Additional troops will be dispatched from some of the Capital Defense Forces as soon as the capital is stabilized.”
“that… … It’s dangerous. What threats remain… … .”
Despite Tarion’s worried words, Kariel shook his head.
“It’s okay with Glenn.”
“… … All right.”
At Kariel’s words, Tarion looked at the door of the office.
Glenn prepares for any possible threat at the door. Cariel gave additional orders to Tarion, who nodded slightly, thinking of his stronger-than-expected appearance.
“Announce the victory of the capital throughout the empire.”
“Call the ambassadors on the way. The war they have hidden is over, so the war must end.”
Having said that, Kariel waved Tharion out.
In front of the assassins, he pretended to be okay, but in fact, it was a situation that was too much.
Using the power of the three summons as power was a burden on Kariel’s body, so the internal state of his body wasn’t very good.
“Your Majesty, the potion is coming.”
The waitress noticed Kariel’s physical condition and immediately brought a potion and made him drink it.
“Leave the rest to the ministers and rest.”
“little bit more. I will give you one final order and rest.”
Hearing Kariel’s words, the chief of staff lowered his head with a small sigh.
And after a while, the ministers came into the office.
“Let the public know that Roteon has teamed up with the demons.”
The Minister of Home Affairs bowed his head at Kariel’s order.
“Tell it to Seongguk. If you stop even now, I will maintain the form of a state at least as a vassal state.”
As soon as the foreign minister answered, he hurriedly left, and this time Kariel looked at the military minister.
“Tell the conquest army to wage public opinion.”
“What content would you like me to do?”
“surrender. If you surrender, I will end it by punishing the king and high-ranking nobles.”
Having said that, Kariel said one more thing to the military minister who was about to leave.
“The masters say that if the empire serves them, they can spare the king.”
“Are you trying to save me?”
When the military minister asked with a surprised expression, Kariel smiled.
“It’s a precious power, but it’s a waste to make fun of it. Even if it’s broken, I’ll have to repair it and use it.”
At Kariel’s words, the military minister nodded heavily.
At the point of blocking Roteon’s hidden move, the Empire was practically victorious.
The golem corps disturbing the east will be slowly suppressed if the central army moves.
All that remains now is the surrender of the Three Kingdoms.
No matter what the order was, they would eventually have no choice but to surrender to the empire that seized the victory.
However, since Kariel suffered considerable damage from an unexpected blow, she could not tolerate any more damage.
That’s why from now on, instead of war, I thought to break them down through public opinion.
Is it because of the sweetness of victory?
Today, the taste of the potion felt delicious.
Kariel sent the ministers away and started recovering while drinking a potion.
* * *
Unlike the capital, which gradually stabilized, the situation in the south went to the worst.
The face of the Duke of Pires hardened at the urgent news that came through Roteon’s intelligence department.
“Is it a failure after all?”
I tried my last struggle, but in the end it failed.
All that was left was to be trampled on by the Empire. It was time to give up everything and accept the end.
An intelligence agent urgently reported to the Duke of Pires.
“I want you to deliver it to His Excellency the Duke through a communication port in the empire.”
At the words of the Duke of Pires, the intelligence agent broke into a cold sweat and spoke in a trembling voice.
“… … nine… … If you want to save the king, surrender quietly. If you take the lead in defeating the black magician with the imperial sword, the king’s life will be spared.”
At the words of the intelligence agent, Duke Pires closed his eyes tightly.
And the same proposal was delivered to Duke Cleta of Talos.
