The Dark King – Chapter 471
Dudian smiled: “don’t be nervous, I’m here for a casual chat.”
Marley’s face turned ugly: “She was innocent. An ordinary civilian. Don’t you feel shame by killing her?”
“Every corpse is innocent… No need to get into those topics.” Dudian indifferently said: “I’ve come to visit you to talk about teachings of nature.”
Marley’s pupils shrank when he heard ‘teachings of nature’. He took a deep breath and no longer care about Dudian who sat on sofa. He quietly walked and sat on a chair by the sofa. He said in a calm manner: “I knew that sooner or later someone will knock my door.”
“That’s why you had only 1 servant.”
“Did you expect a visit from the Holy Church?”
Marley stared at Dudian: “What’s the difference?”
“There isn’t.” Dudian looked at the elder man with the scholar temperament: ” Since you were aware that such a day would come why do you live alone? Isn’t it more dangerous?”
Marley questioned: “Do you think I should live in a turtle shell?”
“Everyone seems to live in a turtle shell.”
There was a trace of mockery in Marley’s eyes: “But our thoughts can’t be imprisoned! You just believe in those fake gods. All things in this world are composed of materials. That’s what constitutes the life. There is no god of light or other holy gods. You just ignore the truth…It’s ridiculous and sad!”
Dudian smiled as he looked at the bookshelves: “If I’m not mistaken those should be the books that you have written. Didn’t you know that you will be exposed once you go out into public?”
“I volunteered.” Marley continued: “I wanted to question the existence of these ridiculous claims. I expected that there will be a revenge!”
“Do you want to die? Don’t you want to live?”
“I would love to live in a world in which the minds of public is liberated.”
Dudian looked at him: “Unfortunately you can’t do anything. Your books are banned and sealed by the Holy Church. No one will listen to you. Actually your presence is meaningless at this point. The only meaning that it will have would be death in my hands.”
Marley’s mouth twitched: “Nothing can stop the people from pursuing the truth even if my book is sealed… My life would be meaningful if just one person checked my book.”
“Yeah… Unfortunately people never knows where to pursue the truth.” Dudian got up and came to stop in front of a bookshelf. All the books were signed by ‘Marley’.
“… …” Dudian randomly picked a book: “Are all believers of the nature same like you? Do you want to overcome religion by the word of mouth?”
Marley looked at him: “What do you want?”
“I just want to know if you have any capital that can be used against the Holy Church.”
“Do you want to use our teachings to attach the Holy Church? You are daydreaming!”
“Why?” Dudian smiled: “We can naturally use your teachings to attack Holy Church. As for the dark church… No one cares about what we believe, including ourselves.”
Marley was perplexed.
Dudian sat back on the sofa: “This book seems good. Can I take it?”
“To read that book you must believe in materialism.”
“Of course I believe.” Dudian shrugged his shoulders.
Marley was stunned: “Indeed a member of the dark church. You can abandon your gods and faith to achieve your unscrupulous purposes and goals! I won’t tell your about the headquarters no matter what you do!”
Dudian faintly smiled: “I really believe in materialism…”
“There are no gods in this world. If there were any then they wouldn’t let us live within the giant wall.” Dudian continued: “The people would know that the gods are nothing but shit if they stepped out of the giant wall.”
Marley narrowed his eye: “How can you become an elder of the dark church without believing in your gods or devils?”
Dudian smiled: “Do you have to believe in god to become a pope? Do you have to believe in justice to get justice? Do you have to believe in love to get lose?”
Marley was startled as he sat in silence.
Dudian checked the time. It was almost seven o’clock. He retracted his eyes and said: “I’m interested in your teaching methods… You know you guys have two enemies, the dark church and the holy church. As the saying goes the enemy of my enemy is my friend. I hope we can become good friends.”
Marley looked at the vase next to the bookshelf. There were several roses inside the vase. He murmured: “What you said was right.”
Dudian raised his eyebrows as he didn’t know what Marley was referring to.
“Read the book and you will know how to join the believers of the nature… ”
Dudian looked at the book in his hand: “All the secrets are hidden in the book?”
Dudian got up and shook his head: “Thanks! I’ll make sure that they will move to the point. ”
Marley was silent as he looked at the vase full of roses.
Dudian left the room and came to the door. He put on his shoes and opened the door. He looked like a student who had come to visit his teacher.
Trunn who was hiding outside came to him: “Elder.”
“Make sure that his death isn’t painful.”
“Yes.” Trunn waved and two more people rushed into the house with him.
Dudian heard them brutally kick the door that he softly closed. He closed his eyes and opened them again. Suddenly he saw large number of heat in the neighborhood.
Whoosh! His body disappeared like a smoke.
The sounds of armored people moving in the street echoed as Dudian vanished. They came from all over and surrounded the house.
A teenager leisurely walked along the path by the river. He looked at the castle reflected on the river because of the moonlight. He shook his head: “It’s been few days…”
