Mage Richard said, “The Goode family has really broadened my horizons.”
He was definitely mocking him.
A trace of anger flashed through Knight Lost’s eyes.
Viscount Samuel, Knight Lost, and Mage Richard were where the princess had disappeared.
Lost said, “I was careless. I didn’t expect the Eternal Peace Protection to have such a function.”
Mage Richard snorted and reached out to gently point in the air. Magic power circulated and elements were mobilized. Void elemental fluctuations were simulated and directed into the crystal in his right hand.
The crystal emitted a faint light. In the crystal, an elemental cloud pointed the direction.
Mage Richard pointed in a direction and said, “The magic power fluctuation of the teleportation spell can be tracked. The princess went that way. Hmph, what a troublesome girl.”
Knight Lost said calmly, “It’s easy to pursue the princess, but most importantly, she can contact Sword Saint Snowfall through the Eternal Peace Protection. This is the most troublesome thing.”
When Mage Richard heard the name of the Sword Saint, a trace of fear flashed through his eyes. He snorted, “Didn’t you make arrangements to capture that Sword Saint in one fell swoop?”
Viscount Samuel sighed, “I’m sorry. It was originally arranged. We’ll only take action when Sword Saint Snowfall arrives. Unfortunately, that Cathayan…”
Mage Richard said angrily, “I don’t care about that Cathayan clown. I only care about the Princess of Goethe!”
However, even so, he did not mention that he wanted to personally pursue the princess.
Knight Lost said, “Please let me go.”
Richard glanced at him. “You can defeat Sword Saint Snowfall?”
“Not now,” Knight Lost said. “However, the original plan did not need to defeat Sword Saint Snowfall directly. His Highness has already given the Goode family a cursed treasure to deal with that Sword Saint.”
He bowed to Viscount Samuel. “Father.”
Viscount Samuel took out an exquisite short sword from his pocket.
“Death Entanglement, Silent Kiss of the Night.” Lost bowed and took this treasure. “It can only activate the curse power once. It can slowly stop the target’s heart and return them to eternal silence.”
He said, “Father, I’ll use this to end a Sword Saint.”
Viscount Samuel nodded and said, “Go, my son. Choose your people and return victorious. I’ll give you a hug and offer you wine to celebrate.”
Lost bowed and said, “Yes.”
The Cathayan and Cleveland were actually not important. The princess was the most important.
He turned around and ran towards the manor, preparing to set off.
Viscount Samuel and Mage Richard looked at the noisy town not far away.
The mage sneered, “It seems that your people haven’t caught those two fish that escaped the net. Viscount Samuel, do you want to do it yourself? Or ask me for help?”
Viscount Samuel said indifferently, “There’s no need. Our Goode family has its own strength. It’s more than enough.”
If the people below could not even do such a small matter and even had to let him, the head of the family, do it personally, then Mage Richard would go back and report it. In the Eldest Prince’s heart, the weight of the Goode family would become very light… It was simply an incompetent performance.
He could just leave it to them.
Even if Cleveland escaped, it was not a big deal. In any case, soon, Goethe would no longer exist.
As for that Cathayan?
Where did he come from? It was already insignificant.
He returned to the manor with Mage Richard.
In the town, Kang De watched blankly as the little beggar in the shadow flew to the side.
The group of people holding torches and shouting for the lord to reward them had already left.
They went to another path.
It was originally fine.
However, that little beggar, Liszt, who was determined to be a knight, shouted.
Kang De was willing to believe him. He believed in his initial gratitude and words. The worry on his face was not fake, and the thought that he wanted to help was not fake.
However, after receiving the 50 silver coins and the reward of becoming a knight attendant, he changed.
The voice was still shouting with a trace of childishness.
In an instant, he felt all his blood surge to his face.
Mania, anger, disbelief, madness, hatred. Countless evil thoughts surged out and surged in his body. Countless vicious curses echoed in his mind, but Kang De could no longer curse.
When people were extremely angry, they could not speak.
They only knew how to roar.
It was like an animal.
Four knights and twelve soldiers blocked both ends of the alley.
The leader was Knight Glenn.
He was sneering.
He sneered smugly.
“Scumbag Cathayan.” He said.
“It seems that I was right,” Glenn said with a cold smile. “They’re all looking for you like headless flies. I’ve asked around about you before. Even if a b*stard like you pretends to be a big shot, you can’t change the lowliness in your bones, so you’ll run to help a beggar. I guess if you want to escape, you’ll only hide in the smelliest place like a rat in the gutter. I really guessed it. You’re hiding here.”
He sneered, “It seems that I have to obtain this merit alone.”
Kang De did not speak. He looked coldly at the end of the alley.
There stood a ragged little beggar.
He was talking softly.
“It’s me. I was the one who said that they were here…”
He wanted to show his contribution and desire to obtain that.
Money, and the first step to becoming a knight… a knight attendant in the viscount’s castle.
Glenn was stunned for a moment, then laughed, “This gaze? Aha! Could it be that this little beggar is the one you helped? Hahahahahahaha! Interesting! Interesting!”
He turned around and laughed, “Little thing! I’m very happy! I’m very satisfied! Of course, the viscount’s promise will be fulfilled! 50 silver coins! Also, I want you to be my servant!”
The little beggar’s face flickered with surprise. He hurriedly said, “Yes! Yes! Master!”
Knight Glenn looked at Kang De with a cruel expression, “I’ll hold a ceremony and officially accept him as my servant. At the ceremony, I’ll invite you to watch…”
Kang De closed his eyes, then opened them again and suddenly threw a flash bomb.
A battle aura erupted and was transmitted along the violent ground. The soil road in the alley instantly collapsed. The violent power caused the ground to crack, and the soil shook like a small earthquake.
Kang De was about to cross the wall and leave when he felt the ground shake. For a moment, he could not stand steadily and staggered back.
At this moment, the battle aura flashed, and Glenn had already rushed forward with his sword!
“It’s a battle now. Let’s see what else you can do!”
When the blade touched his body, Kang De instinctively held the axe to block. However, the axe blade was firm, but the wooden handle was an ordinary material. When Glenn slashed down, he actually split the fire axe into two!
Kang De suddenly retreated and waved the broken axe with both hands. Then, he grabbed the pistol and nail gun and fired. Glenn dodged and blocked a few bullets before suddenly stomping his feet!
Kang De felt the power of the earth splitting suddenly surge under his feet, shaking his lower body violently, and causing his calf to hurt. He lost his footing and dodged to the side. However, this was Glenn’s proud combat technique. He was already extremely familiar with how to cooperate with this move to fight. He had long expected the direction Kang De dodged. He stepped to the side almost at the same time as him and slashed at his throat!
At this moment, a sword joined the battle and blocked Glenn’s sword. Cleveland waved his sword to save him and shouted, “I’ll deal with him. You deal with the people behind!”
Glenn focused on the battle and laughed loudly, “Deal with me? What a bold tone! I was a little nervous earlier, but now it seems that the Star Knight of Goethe is only so-so! It seems that I’m destined to make such contributions today and capture the two of you!”
He used his battle aura battle technique for the third time. “Earth Roar!”
Cleveland’s battle aura flashed. He condensed light into a sword and suddenly stabbed into the ground!
The two battle auras collided under the ground and exploded. The two of them retreated at the same time. Cleveland’s body shook and he vomited a mouthful of blood!
Glenn was overjoyed and shouted at the soldiers behind him, “Don’t move! Let me do it!”
There were two knights and six soldiers behind the alley.
Knight Glenn did not want anyone to snatch the credit, so he did not inform the other knights in the town. This was the best news… He had to kill these people.
Kang De stepped forward and threw the Molotov cocktail, but the two knights carried large shields. When they saw a ball of flames flying over, they immediately held their shields to block. The bottle exploded, and flames spread. Seeing that they could not extinguish it, the knight indifferently threw the shield aside and took out the spare shield from the soldier.
Moreover, they were wearing thick helmets.
This was a lesson learned from the shooting at the manor.
Kang De’s heart sank.
The knight continued forward. They held large shields and swords. The six soldiers leveled their spears and pushed forward.
Kang De raised the nail gun and fired. As he had expected, the nail was sharp and not armor-piercing. It was blocked by the shield, and the ammunition for the pistol was limited. He did not know the effect if he fired rashly…
A fierce glint flashed through his eyes. He accelerated and rushed forward. Then, he suddenly jumped up and kicked the left wall a few times, jumping behind these eight people!
The electric baton was thrown.
The spearmen could not turn around in time and got stabbed by Kang De. Three of them convulsed and fell to the ground. The two knights in front abandoned their large shields and suddenly turned around, forcefully blocking the other three spearmen. They swung their swords and slashed at Kang De. They were wearing heavy helmets and only revealed the grid structure. In theory, the protective effect was already the greatest, but what greeted them was the pepper spray. An intense jet swept and shot into their eyes!
The knights let out intense screams!
Kang De grabbed the shotgun and fired three times, hitting the heads of the other three gunmen. Their necks snapped and they fell to the ground. The two knights suddenly pulled off their helmets and rubbed their eyes desperately. What greeted them were the pellets of the Type 92 police pistol.
After Kang De killed these people, he looked up and saw that Cleveland was no longer retreating. His sword was becoming slower and slower. Seeing that Kang De had quickly dealt with several people, Glenn shouted, “Attack together!”
Kang De wanted to go forward and help, but he discovered that the knight had turned around and looked at him with determination.
The two knights he killed did not have any battle aura. Their combat strength and threat were far inferior to Glenn’s. If he fought here for too long, it was very easy to attract pursuers. In that case…
Therefore, he had to make a decision.
A violent battle aura erupted from the knight’s body. That battle aura was as glorious as the sun and as sharp as a sword.
Glenn was shocked. He immediately retreated and jumped behind his subordinate who was about to step forward. Cleveland raised his sword and his battle aura roared out of his body, turning into a sharp blade of light that slashed forward!
Generally speaking, battle aura could not leave the body and would quickly lose its lethality.
The sharp light blade swept past the six soldiers like cutting tofu and killed the knight beside Glenn.
However, it bought Glenn time.
Light blades, shock waves, and powerful forces collided. Light flashed, and a strong wind howled. The violent air wave made Kang De unable to open his eyes. When he saw the situation clearly again, he could not help but roar. Glenn, who had used his companion’s corpse to escape, stepped forward in exasperation and pierced Cleveland’s body.
The knight shielded his vital points. Glenn pulled out his sword and slashed again. Kang De rushed over like a wild beast and fired repeatedly with both guns. However, Glenn was wearing armor, so the nail gun was like scratching an itch. He tilted his head to dodge the bullet and cut Kang De’s pistol in half with a single strike. The shotgun fired ferociously close and sent Glenn’s sword flying. However, Glenn reacted extremely quickly. He reached out and twisted hard, suddenly bending the shotgun.
However, Kang De had already collided with it like a cannonball.
The two of them flew out and twisted into a ball. Kang De wanted to pull out the nail gun, but Glenn grabbed his wrist tightly. After activating his Battle Aura Boost, Kang De felt intense pain in his hands. The other party’s battle aura attacked his body. He exerted all his strength and fought Glenn tightly, falling into a deadlock.
Glenn was shocked and furious. He did not expect things to turn out like this under such circumstances. He shouted, “Call for help! Hurry up and call for help!”
The little beggar had been watching from the entrance of the alley.
Seeing the situation, he immediately turned around and ran. He shouted, “Someone! The Cathayan is here!”
Kang De’s eyes were red and he was anxious. If anyone else came at this time, he would completely die here! Cleveland fell to the side and was seriously injured. He had to leave immediately!
Then, he had to kill the person in front of him.
However, he could not.
Their hands restrained each other and fell into a stalemate. All their strength resisted.
How could he kill this guy?
He could not take out the gun, the knife, the axe, or anything else because he could not move. However, he had to kill him!
Then, there was only one way left.
His mental strength spread out, enveloped, and restrained.
Kang De grabbed Glenn’s hands tightly.
Enduring the other party’s battle aura eruption, he stared into his eyes.
Die, die, die, die, die, die!
Glenn looked shocked, then struggled violently. Kang De felt his mind suffer a violent impact. An indescribable pain erupted from the depths of his soul, but he gritted his teeth and tried his best to suppress Glenn. Enduring the pain of his battle aura surging, he roared, “Eleme—Extra—”
Glenn suddenly widened his eyes and his pupils suddenly dilated. He let out an extremely painful and terrifying scream as if he had been tortured in the most tragic way in the world. His body emitted a dazzling light. Then, this intense light focused in his eyes. Then, a strong pillar of light shot out of his eyes and shot into Kang De’s eyes—no, it was his eyes absorbing this light!
At this moment, Kang De felt as if he had peered into the fate of another person like a god. He wandered into the other party’s sea of memories. Countless fragments continuously dissipated, and every piece recorded this person’s exciting or trivial life. He extracted but did not devour them. He watched but did not immerse himself. He felt that every piece of flesh and blood of Glenn had been bloody uncovered by him, and every inch of his soul had been shattered bit by bit.
The trivial soul shell had already dissipated.
Only a little golden light was left.
That pure golden light was absorbed by Kang De’s body. He knew what it was. He had once seen the power of an earthquake with his own eyes and was shocked by its terrifying power. This seed took root and germinated until his battle aura awakened and his battle soul was activated. This was the foundation of Knight Glenn’s strength.
The intense light had already been absorbed by Kang De’s eyes.
Every inch of his flesh, every bit of his soul, everything had disappeared from this world, leaving only his path, his strength, and his proudest move.
Kang De staggered to his feet. He held his head, and the light in his eyes had yet to dissipate. At the end of the alley, some sneaky figures appeared. They were not Glory Sand’s reinforcements, but the townspeople who had heard the sound.
They revealed greedy expressions and slowly approached with simple weapons.
They saw a pair of eyes that still had a terrifying light.
When the knights of Glory Sand arrived late, they saw the destroyed alley and the screaming people buried under the ruins.
The Cathayan, the Goethe Knight, and Knight Glenn were gone.
