The Tyrant Won’t Let Me Go - Chapter 31.2
“So, you mean the traces of mana were cut off at the entrance to the village?”
1STKISSNOVEL. DO NOT STEAL MY TRANSLATION!
“Yes, that’s right.”
Lucia, the head of the magic research department, replied with her head bowed down.
Marquis Lauren, who received the results from Lucia, sighed deeply.
“That’s unregistered magic.”
“Yes, so I believed that they were commoners, new awakeners, or a foreigner.”
“No, that doesn’t make any sense.”
The Marquis Lauren put the result sheet down on the table and said.
“Even if those people moved, it might be a noble who’s actually controlling them behind the scenes.”
“But it’s impossible to find the roots from the beginning.”
Lucia raised her eyebrows and glanced at Marquis Lauren.
“You have to follow the branches to find the roots.” (Lucia)
“Did you examine the lion’s body?” (Lauren)
Lucia answered Marquis Lauren and turned around.
“Of course. The manager burned it down like a whole roast, but the analysis itself wasn’t as difficult as I thought.” (Lucia)
He then returned with another test paper.
Marquis Lauren, who received the examination paper handed over by Lucia, squinted and looked down the examination paper.
“After all, it was in a state of being reinforced by an explosive.”
“Yes. I roughly expected it after hearing the testimony of the knights and wizards at the scene, but sure enough, it was.”
After listening to Lucia, he nodded and sighed.
“Well, no matter how you look at it, it was strange. Although it was a Nemesis lion, it’s not a creature that wouldn’t fall down even if it was struck by lightning.” (Lauren)
“Yes. That’s right. Explosives are a kind of drug that didn’t appear in the Deamant Empire. When the detailed ingredient checklist comes out tomorrow, we should try to find the source by combining the information well.”
“Okay. Well done.” (Lauren)
The Imperial Palace Wizards who were engaged in practical tasks such as security, defense, search, or facility repair, and the Magic Research Department, which produced and provided useful equipment for wizards and magic swordsmen, and engaged in the research on magical powers, were all doing their best.
Less than three months after the Emperor ascended the throne, a force aimed at him appeared.
If he did not step firmly behind it in the beginning, it would have been a great threat to the imperial power in the future.
‘In the first place, trying to assassinate in a place full of knights and wizards. It’s true that he’s a bold guy.’
Or the background behind it has a great power that couldn’t be ignored.
“I’ll also find out about the Nemesis’ lions at the smuggling control department tomorrow.”
The Marquis Lauren got up from his seat and refined his clothes.
“Oh, Marquis, wait a minute!”
Lucia, who hurriedly called in Marquis Lauren that was about to leave, returned with a wooden box in the office’s bookshelf.
“It’s finished, so please pass it on to His Majesty.”
After receiving the box from Lucia, the Marquis felt the pain as if his arm was about to fall from the weight of the box, and in the end he used magic to float the box.
“Why was it so heavy?”
The box floating in the middle of the room looked old, but it had a luxurious design.
The lid and seams of the box made of pure gold, and the tiger thorn pattern carefully engraved on it, gave off a profound yet sophisticated look.
“Well, the equipment itself was a bit heavy…”
“Really? The Count would use it. It shouldn’t be too heavy?”
With that said, the Marquis touched the box given by Lucia.
“May I take a look?”
“Oh, yes. His Majesty told me to do so if the Marquis asked.”
Hearing Lucia’s answer, the Marquis opened the box without hesitation, and at the same time, he hardened.
Lucia, who rolled her eyes anxiously and stared at Marquis Lauren, closed the box again and tried to cover the situation with a smile.
“Well, Marquis. It would be alright. His Majesty said any shape was fine.”
However, Marquis Lauren didn’t seem to think so.
“Should I have made it this way…?”
Lucia was sweating profusely at the voice of the Marquis, who couldn’t escape the shock and fear.
“That’s because I’ve never made mana control equipment for high-ranking people… This was the only thing that could sufficiently suppress the Count’s mana.”
Upon hearing Lucia’s answer, Marquis sighed.
He thought that when the Count woke up later, he had to explain well so that she didn’t faint in surprise.
“Okay. You mean you handled that dirty bastard that you gave money to, right?”
The man with the red hair raised the corners of his mouth sullenly as the man in the white robe gave a frivolous answer.
“Very well, good job.”
Looking at the saluting man wearing the white robe, the man with flaming red hair leaned forward and whispered.
“Then, should we hear the results you brought?”
The man who was kneeling in front of him, who blinked with a creepy light on his eyes, lifted his head slowly.
“Yes. To start with, the oracle was true.”
The corners of the mouth of the red-haired man rose in an instant.
The man who heard the answer couldn’t hold back his laughter now.
He thought everything was over, but he didn’t know things would go this well.
It all started with a glimmer of suspicion, because he didn’t expect it to come with such a sure guarantee check.
It really felt like he had won the lottery with a definite result.
“You seem pretty sure of what you’re saying.”
The red-haired man leaned against the back of the chair and chuckled.
“Was there any reason?”
The man in the white robe calmly raised his head.
In the dark hat, the black eyes gave off a murky light.
“With these two eyes, I saw the Emperor of Deamant use lightning.”
Rumors that the Crown Prince of Deamant, who inherited the blood of a magic swordsman, couldn’t even awaken his sword, spread far from the Empire.
Then one day, the rumor that he suddenly awakened the sword was still strange, but he caught the solid evidence.
“Yeah… You’re right.”
The corners of his lips that were raised slantedly contained an evil smile.
“In a normal case, there would be no way an Emperor who had no magic power to awaken even his sword would suddenly be able to use that difficult attack.”
Despicable, mean golden eyes flashed in the darkness.
Like the eyes of a snake who found its prey.
A voice stained with madness resonated throughout the quiet room.
“Caliberne was inside of Cedric Deamant.”
