Chapter 40: Break-Out 02
The Prince stood in a daunting pose and his voice sounded clear, “You aren’t allowed to leave as you like! I can’t let you leave knowing that you’re the enemy! You’ll be put to death the moment you use that strange magic on me! Go back there!”
He stood there with his blonde hair and blue eyes and his handsome face was full of anger.
Hime stood calmly in the distance.
Stop Lolo. It’s not a good idea to hurt royal members after all. I don’t have the guts to fight directly with the royal family.
I don’t want to be a wanted person.
What? I’m already one?
But for now, I still don’t want to cross that dangerous bridge as much as possible even though I’m at this point.
That’s why I only inflected minor injuries on the servants and aimed for a win by default.
I’d like to stay as far away from things such as murder, lese majesty and huge amounts of compensation.
It’s war? Who cares.
I don’t want to live with guilt. That’s all. If I don’t protect my life, then who will protect me in this other world?
I think there’s a limit to how many favours I can give the General.
“An annoying one showed up…” The Priest also muttered.
The only person who seemed to be enjoying himself was Lek.
“Eh? So, he showed up himself.”
I wonder why he’s grinning.
Just how confident is he?
We had no choice but to stop advancing, but I continued to maintain my skill that was maximising the pain of everyone within a dozen meter radius of us, except the Prince.
Prince Loire shouted and pointed his finger at Lek, “I’ve heard about it! I heard that you’re the General of Farglow. Did you think that you could just stroll into this castle and leave here unharmed? Prepare yourself! I’ll take that head of yours!”
The Prince then drew his sword and rushed at us.
At that moment, Lek lightly pushed me towards Father Austin and stepped in front of me to protect me. I wonder what he’s thinking.
You’re unarmed, you know? We had to go through a body search before we had our audience.
But Lek kept a calm expression on his face and stood in front of Prince Loire for some reason.
Just then, Prince Loire rushed over to him and roughly slashed Lek with all his might.
Hey! Lek! Wait! Stop!? Avoid it!
Why are you just standing there and letting him slash you?!
You’re a General, aren’t you? If you’re a soldier, then you could have done something to resist! I’m glad you quickly moved to protect me, but you should have done something to avoid the sword yourself~. Why did you let him slash your body without any resistance and why did you fall to the floor so easily?!
What’s going on here~?! Now’s not the time to collapse in a pool of blood…
We’re on the run, remember?
I cursed him in my mind. At the same time Lek was slashed, the wound on his body healed itself. Well, it happened really fast, so forgive me if I only closed the wound lightly. But for the time being, it wasn’t life-threatening. Though it did bleed.
I also quickly scanned Prince Loire’s body at the same time.
It seemed Prince Loire wasn’t satisfied with slashing Lek only once. He was about to raise his sword again to slash at Lek again.
Father Austin, who had stepped in between the two of them, took on a defensive pose to protect the fallen Lek.
But the Prince looked as if he was about to slash the Priest as well.
I hope there’s something wrong with you Prince. I don’t care if it’s athlete’s foot or mosquito bites, I just need something, anything!
Hmm, as expected of a royal member with perfect health care, I can’t find anywhere that’s bad…
Then, I’ll stop looking! I don’t have time for this!
In the end, I came to that conclusion in an instant.
I don’t want to be chased. What kind of torture is it to be slashed and constantly healed? It hurts.
You can’t solve a problem without making sacrifices.
This is surely self-defence.
So, I’ll do it. Alright!
I quickly squeezed one of the Prince’s knees with my invisible hand skill.
Prince Loire collapsed just like that.
He rolled over while holding his knee and groaned in pain.
The gallery around us immediately became noisy, but not many approached the fallen Prince in front of us, probably because their leg was hurting badly or because they were afraid to approach us.
But there were a few loyal servants, so I mercilessly raised their pain level to the max.
I’m sorry, but I don’t want to get caught. If there’s people who can move, then they might try their best to catch us.
It’s my job to sew everyone to the floor with pain and fear.
At the same time, I was a little surprised to find out that I could do direct attacks as well.
Oh my, did I not need Lolo’s scratches…?
Ah, but I couldn’t give them minor injuries, so Prince Loire’s injury was worse than I thought. Hmm, I should practice…
I forgot about what situation we were in and thought about this as I stared at the suffering Prince.
Father Austin after seeing the situation, suddenly shouted loudly as if asking “Where the hell did that come from?”
The Priest’s voice echoed through the hall.
“Behold! This is the power of the real Saint! If you disobey the Saint, then you will be punished with agony! Restrain yourself!”
Then, the Priest quickly removed the veil I was wearing.
