I Was A Sword When I Reincarnated - Chapter 378.1
Laurencia? Did you just say Laurencia?
『Hey, what does that person got to do with Linford?』
“Linford? As I recall, he was the evil sorcerer who summoned Myrellia……”
“Hmm. Linford Laurencia”
“I see… Did you say that his surname is Laurencia?”
『Yeah, He was an old monster over hundred years old.』
“Hundred years old? I believe Lysias should be over 40. So Lysias probably isn’t his child.”
Then, his grandchildren maybe?
『This Lysias guy isn’t an evil sorcerer, is he?』
“Rather, I’ve heard that Lysias hates evil sorcerers.”
In the first place, we don’t even know if it is a direct blood relationship. It is possible that the Laurencia family has split over the years, and not all the descendants of evil sorcerers will be evil sorcerers. If the story about Lysias hating Linford is true, it’s more likely that Linford has done something to him.
It’s unlikely that the Beast Kings will miss the evil sorcerer, and there doesn’t seem to be any problems with this guy named Lysias.
“Lysias’s earth magic is unrivaled in siege battles. With him, no matter how many fort there is, it’s nothing to him.”
“Do you mean that he is attacking the fort with earth magic?”
“Well, that’s possible, but the most secure way you can do is dig a hole for a way to advance. Normally, they’d be fortified with magical tools and other equipment to guard the basement, but they were confused at the time. Lysias who was digging underground was not noticed or interfered with in any way by the enemy. ”
I see, so they’re going to build an underground tunnel and send soldiers through it. I’m sure there was something called tunnel warfare in Japan. I’m not sure how much of that is genuine and how much of it is fiction, but I’m sure that the method of going underground and crossing the ramparts is very effective.
“Thanks to Lysias and the others, it was easy to get to the Magnolias’ house.”
“There were no soldiers on patrol to deal with the Beastman’s armies, and it was safe to say that there were no guards in Magnolia territory.”
“Then, did you manage to get Romeo under your protection?”
“No, I couldn’t”
Mea shook her head, her expression darkening slightly.
What do you mean? You have been to the Magnolias’ house, haven’t you? Did he resist? Or was there never a kid like that in the first place? It is also highly possible that they were evacuated when the war began.
But the answer from Mea and the others was none of those things.
“He had already been taken by someone else.”
“Yes, Apparently, a man who was over two meters tall, with scars all over his body, and was as ferocious as an ogre took him.”
I only have two people in mind. No, Asurasu was with us the whole time. And it’s not like he is covered in scars all over.
If so, there is only one candidate.
“Does Fran think so too? Apparently, Xellos Reed attacked the Magnolia family and kidnapped Romeo.”
Xellos Reed was Myrellia’s partner, but he should have betrayed her in her last moments, right? Why did he take Romeo…..? Is he doing this out of spite against Myrellia? Or is there a different reason?
『What is the reason……?』
“Can’t you follow him with Urushi’s nose?”
As expected even Urushi can’t do that. Even if you try to trace it back from the Magnolia family, Xellos Reed will be moving around as well, and after a few days the smell will disappear.
“I see…… I’m afraid it’s a dead end.”
“Now then, let’s put the prize money on the line. It’s already been arranged, but if we announce it again, it will be just annoying to other people.”
“You are right”
It would be better to leave it to Mea and the others to take care of the prize money. Seems like we didn’t really have a choice. It’s a pretty bad aftertaste, but the story about a boy named Romeo ends here.
I’m sure Fran is wondering about what to do too. But I know there is nothing more we can do about it.
『Well it can’t be helped. If we run into Xellos Reed in the future, we’ll ask him out. Well, I don’t think he will speak honestly though.』
I really don’t want to meet a monster like that for the second time. But I’ve already met him twice. Barbora, and now this….. they say that what happens twice might happen three times as well, and so we can’t let our guard down.
“Blow him away and get the full story.”
It seems that there won’t be any leeway for negotiations. Well, I don’t think negotiations are going to work with Xellos Reed, so it will end up being a battle.
『We have to be stronger to prepare if that were to happen.』
Fran nodded with a look of determination on her face.
“Now, Master, I’m here to take care of Master Kiara.”
After the outdoor debriefing was over, we were entering the royal capital with Mea. I wondered if we would have to wait in that line again, but that didn’t happen since we are together with a royal family. There was a private entrance dedicated for the royal family and we were soon able to enter the royal capital.
The one who greeted me was Mianoa, the lady in waiting that was attached to Kiara. She seems to have returned to the royal capital a step ahead from us and was reporting back. At the same time, she seems to have been preparing for Kiara’s funeral.
The body of Kiara was taken out of the dimensional storage, and then laid in the coffin that had been prepared. Both Fran and Mea are getting their eyes wet again when seeing that.
