Eveam tried to break through the barrier surrounding them numerous times by attacking it with her bare hands . However, the barrier didn’t move a single inch .
“How reckless . There’s no way that a barrier imbued with a hero’s life would break from your bare hands” (Rudolf)
Ignoring Rudolf’s words, Eveam continued to thrust her fists forward .
“Haa haa haa haa haa…… . . how is it, Aquinas?” (Eveam)
“It appears that it contains an 《Evil-Sealing Barrier》, which is capable of absorbing physical attacks . In this place where it is forbidden to bring weapons to begin with, theoretically speaking, escaping from it is nearly impossible” (Aquinas)
Aquinas explained with a grave face as he touched the barrier .
“Move, Aquinas” (Judom)
Judom had his eyes closed as he focused the senses of his entire body into his right fist .
(Che, I can’t focus my magic power . At this rate, the power will drop significantly) (Judom)
Even so, he put all his power into his fist as he punched .
It was as though nothing had happened at all, as the entire impact of the punch was absorbed .
“So it’s even impossible for Judom-dono… . . ” (Eveam)
Eveam gazed at the barrier with a bitter expression .
“At this rate, the『Evila』will……” (Eveam)
She was concerned about the【Evila Capital: Xaos】 . After hearing that it was currently embroiled in war, Eveam simply couldn’t just stand around here doing nothing .
“Unforgivable! Your Majesty, for now, please give us the order to deal with these humans!” (Marione)
Marione turned his gaze filled with killing intent towards Rudolf and co . However, Eveam shook her head .
“We can’t” (Eveam)
“Your Majesty!” (Marione)
“Right now in this place, majority of violent actions have been weakened . Marione, your specialty should be magic, and not physical attacks . Even so, do you really think that you’d be capable of fighting against 5 soldiers together while remaining unharmed?” (Eveam)
“……………………… . ” (Marione)
“Once we escape from here, we have to return to the country as soon as possible . If you were injured and became unable to move at that time, then what would you do?” (Eveam)
“Right now, getting out of here is our top priority . Don’t waste any energy” (Eveam)
“……… . . as you wish” (Marione)
Although he appeared to accept it reluctantly, as Eveam’s words were correct, he decided to obediently listen to her . Seeing that, Judom thought-
(Hou, she is still quite inexperienced, but she understands what’s important . I’m sure this girl will become a great ruler) (Judom)
The more naïve her thoughts were, the more problematic her actions would become . Even so, she continued forward without losing anything important . As such, Judom believed that she would certainly grow up to be surrounded by thoughts of admiration in the future .
(So my attack didn’t work at all…… . then I suppose I can only bet on that fellow’s work for the rest) (Judom)
As he thought that, Judom strongly gripped his fist .
“………… . u………… . ” (???)
The one who woke up upon feeling a cool sensation on his face was the one who was thought to have been killed by the robed person while following the heroes as they took some suspicious actions . He was Nazaar Skride, or rather, he was the 《Rank 3》in the 《Cruel Brigade》, Teckil .
“Gu……… . haha……seems like this isn’t the Netherworld” (Teckil)
Feeling that his hands and feet were bound, Teckil distinctly felt the sensation of being alive . He had thought that he would definitely be killed . However, upon realizing that he somehow was still alive, Teckil became slightly relieved .
After rolling face up, he looked around in order to figure out exactly where he was . From what he had seen, he judged that this was a cavernous-like place .
Based on the ceiling alone, he arbitrarily decided that this was some cave . However, he felt that he probably wasn’t mistaken .
(But, why haven’t I been killed yet…… . ) (Teckil)
Right now, he didn’t feel the presence of anyone around him . Raising his torso, he twisted his body about to once more confirm his surroundings .
As he did so, Teckil saw a light from a fair distance ahead of him . Nearby, there was an opening which seemed to be an exit . As he couldn’t simply stay around here obediently, Teckil decided to aim for that exit for the time being . Lying down once more, this time he pushed upwards with enough force to reach a standing position . Then, he gazed at the restraints on his arms and legs .
“Mu~, these restraints…… . . are they a type of magic tool? It won’t move an inch” (Teckil)
Teckil tried to use all his strength to pull apart the restraints, but they didn’t give even the slightest response . A tool containing magic, a magic tool . They had various abilities, but these handcuff-like magic tools appeared to contain the ability to limit one’s physical abilities alone .
“Hm~, it looks like they took away my favourite pen” (Teckil)
Teckil was a user of a Unique Magic which allowed him to give form to things he drew with that pen using magic . However, without anything to write with, he couldn’t display his abilities .
“As I thought, what I saw at that time wasn’t a mistake………to think that person is………” (Teckil)
Teckil nodded as he thought to himself . If that was the case, then it wasn’t strange even if they knew of his abilities . As such, so long as they took away his pen, they judged that he would become unable to use magic .
However, Teckil chuckled as he grinned and-
“But I’ve really failed this time” (Teckil)
Just as he thought he bit through and tore something-
Pit pat pit pat………
A fluid began dripping onto the ground . If you looked carefully, you could see that it was blood flowing out from Teckil’s mouth . It appeared that he had bitten through his lip .
“Even without my pen, there’s still things I can draw with” (Teckil)
After sticking out his tongue and licking, he began using his blood to draw something on a large rock .
(Uu~this gritty feeling feels gross, but I’ll endure it for now) (Teckil)
It was the drawing of a bird . Once he finished drawing it, the bird rose out, and like a real bird, began to dance in the sky . Then, the bird landed on Teckil’s shoulder .
“Listen up, ‘kay? I want you to do whatever you can to tell a certain person about the information I have right now” (Teckil)
“Chi chi chi?” (Bird)
“Originally, I’d tell her Majesty this in person, but right now her Majesty’s surroundings are the most dangerous . And right now, a certain person should be together with her Majesty . They’ll definitely be able to make use of the information” (Teckil)
“Chi chi chi” (Bird)
The bird rapidly nodded its head .
“I’ll also look for a chance to escape” (Teckil)
As he said that, a chill ran down his back . The air became several times heavier .
“Th-this is bad! Seems like they’ve returned . Come on, fly out from up there!” (Teckil)
As he said that, the bird raised its chin and began rising into the air . There lay a small hole through which a thread of light shone through . It wasn’t big enough for a person to go through, but should have been enough for a small bird to pass through without any problems .
With Teckil’s urging, the bird cried out “Chi chi chi” as it flew towards the hole .
“I’m counting on you . Right now, the only one I can rely on is that person after all……” (Teckil)
Meanwhile, Teckil stared at the light coming from the place that may be the exit that he saw earlier . As he did so, he heard the pitter patter of footsteps resounding throughout the cave .
Teckil then returned to the place where he had been lying earlier, and lay down once more . Until he was aware of the other party’s intentions, it would be better for him to check out the situation for now .
He might be able to gain a lot of information . Naturally, the chances of him being killed were high, but he felt lucky that he was able to send the information he currently had .
In addition, in order to make the opponent drop their guard so that he could counterattack as well, it’d be more convenient to continue acting unconscious .
(In any case, I just need to do whatever I can right now) (Teckil)
