The Dark King – Chapter 28
The first six chapters have been edited… 🙂
Although Kris said that the military reward is extremely attractive, but Dudian was sensible enough to dispel the idea of claiming. He was not sure what kind of clues were recovered from the chamber of the alchemist by the Knights of the Light. He had used fire to destroy everything but the traces of the explosion would not disappear. If he was taken into a cross-examination, he would inevitable expose flaws.
Moreover, his trousers had the alchemy notes, once searched out, the consequences could be disastrous. He just wanted to stay away from Knights of Light. The farther the better!
“Knighthood opportunity, ah … …” Dudian heart was in pain but bite his tongue to be a bit more sensible regarding his security.
“Dean, very good … …” Zach’s face was full excitement. He was about to go on to talk but saw Dudian’s harsh look so he stopped.
Mason, Zach and Sham could not help but be surprised for a moment. After few months of get along and ten days of survival test they have long been in tacit understanding of each others temper. With a simple look they could understand the meaning behind Dudian’s eyes. They couldn’t help but wonder, this is a golden opportunity. The golden symbol of the highest status that a civilian could reach has been sent to Dudian’s feet and he only needs to take a step forward.
This is the dream of countless people, ah!
However, under the vision of Dudian they came to stop. Three as one did not say anything. They respected Dudian’s choice as incredible and puzzled they were. They knew that they could not convince Dudian otherwise, so they didn’t want to stop him.
Kris looked at the crowd which was in silence. Nobody had responded. She slightly frowned, at this time, suddenly a voice sounded: “I, I.” Short boy holding his hands together, who looked a little nervous came out of the crowd.
Kris was relieved, looked at him deeply, smiled and said: “Congratulations, you will be rewarded by the instructor and it will be recorded on to your household. Now let us appreciate how the Knight of Light is going to punish the demon. ”
As she finished talking, a person slowly came out from the previous huge black carriage. His body was clad in silver-white armor. He was a young man with a handsome appearance. He was tall. For most of the onlookers he was full of ungodly charm.
All the children’s excitement was exposed on their faces. Relative to the proud aristocracy, civilians were in high regards towards just and benevolent Knights of Light.
Dudian looked at the young Knight of Light. What was he going to do? Was he going to award the child who was posing for Dudian’s accomplishments? He had a bit of regret in his heart. If he had known that everything would pass by in a simple manner then he would have stepped forward not matter what. He couldn’t but blame himself for overthinking everything.
He secretly sighed but knew that has missed chance. He can only put it away onto the deep parts of his mind. In any case, being cautious is always good, as for military reward… … he shook his head, these thought aside. At this time, the young Knight of Light passed by Tobu and stepped in front of the alchemist. There was a touch of smile on his face as he slowly pulled out his sword. The sun was reflected on the blade of the sword.
“I, Melk, in the name of the Father, decides the fate of this devil!”
“Light will eventually expel all the darkness!
He gently talking. In a moment his hands used to momentum to charge sword towards the alchemist’s head.
Alchemist’s head was immediately cut. The blood was spewing out from the neck, his body fell to the ground. Alchemist’s head rolled a few times before coming to a stop. The blood was flowing in to the sand.
In front of the bloody scene most of the children were scared and took a step back. But soon they were excited. Shouting the last words that Melk had spoken: “Light will eventually expel all the darkness!”
One after the another, the words echoed out in the desert.
Dudian did not want to be found strange, so he also followed by gently shouting the words. But in his heart: “Did not any of you saw the blood that flew into the sand, like the rest of us it was colored in red!”
In this world, it is not uncommon to publicly try inmates. Countless people would come as onlookers to the trials of the convicted prisoners who had done great evil. Perhaps in this monotonous world it is kind of an entertainment.
Soon, the man named Melk wiped his sword, turned and left.
Kris and Tobu escorted Dudian and the other children using the black carriages back to scavenger special training ground.
After returning into their bedrooms, everyone felt that this tattered, shabby little room was so valuable and solid.
“I heard that this time total of eight alchemists were captured.” Dasha was sitting on a soft chair, she smiled and continue: “I am even jealous of this feats. You have done a great job. I believe that after the special training of this group ends, you will be promoted to the Hunter School. It’s time to go to there to discipline those group of ‘monsters’, they may need your bitterness more than this group.”
Tobu wryly said: “The main credit is not mine. It was the Mel family’s young genius who killed a two-star alchemist! ”
“Mel house seems to re-emerge, ah … …” Dasha mouth revealed a trace of a smile and said: “I heard that there was another kid who escaped from a three star alchemists clutches and that alchemist was found dead ”
Tobu replied: “According to Knight of Light’s point of view there had to be a four-star alchemist who had killed him because of the amount of power used in destruction of that place”
Dasha eyes narrowed slightly and said: ” It’s been a long time that we had detected activities of a four-star alchemist. And even if there was one in the desert, I estimated that including you and those Knights of Lights, no one would come back alive!”
Tobu breathed lightly: “The next time when there is such a thing, I want you to give me a notice in advance. I don’t want to be kept in the dark”
“I’m tired,” said Dasha and yawned.
Tobu slightly smile. He could only respectfully withdrew.
“Giant wall calendar. Year 291. The rainy season.
“The experiment is ready. I have thoroughly grasped the the structure of the human body. Today I will experiment with my own body. Soon I, Rosyard’s name, will be forever engraved in the alchemist hall as the immortal. I will also become the new creator…”
Dudian was secretly looking at alchemy notes when no one was around. This alchemist who experimented and refined his own body had recorded everything. From the scrawl of goose feathers, Dudian could see the trembling once in a while and feel how excited the alchemist had been.
