10 Years After – 35

PAGE 1

It flew in a perfect line towards the vampire that was moving towards Gerberga.

But the vampire jumped in order to avoid the sword.

 

“Serulis. Well done!”

 

I said as I jumped towards the vampire who was in the air.

My right hand grabbed it by the forehead and I activated Drain Touch.

 

“GUWWAHAGAHGG!!”

The vampire’s face immediately turned dark as its strength left it. It crumbled to the ground, drained almost entirely of magic.

 

Eric ran to his daughters.

Goran ran to the vampire that lay near Serulis’s feet.

 

In that instant, two vampires attacked Goran.

They must have been pretending to be dead.

 

“Don’t get so cocky. You lesser monsters!”

 

Goran thrust his left palm into one vampire’s jaw.

The jaw was crushed and fangs flew in the air.

At the same time, his right hand went for the other vampire’s throat and snapped it.

 

Vampire’s turned to ash when they die. The only thing that would remain was the magic stone which was proof of the hunt.

 

Eric had now reached his daughters and was hugging them tightly.

 

“Are you okay? Did they hurt you?”

“We are fine. What about you, father?”

“Miss Serulis saved us!”

 

In spite of the situation, neither of them seemed afraid.

They were very brave for being so young.

 

I left the powerless vampire to Shia as I approached Gerberga.

 

“Lord Gerberga. Are you alright?”

“Cluck-cluck-cawww.”

 

His wings beat the air as it flew towards my chest.

I caught him.

Gerberga was trembling slightly.

 

“Cluck-cluck.”

Gerberga leaned against me and raised his head over my shoulder.

Apparently, he wanted me to hug him.

 

“Don’t worry, you’re safe now.”

“Cluck.”

 

He must have been afraid.

After a while, Gerberga finally calmed down.

And then I handed him over to Luchila.

 

“Cluck-cluck.”

“Lord Gerberga. Everything is fine now.”

“Cluck.”

 

Gerberga became quiet as Luchila held him.

 

In spite of it being an ambush, no one had been hurt.

I guess it was because Serulis had reacted very well.

 

“Serulis. Where did they come from?”

“A magic circle appeared here suddenly. And then three vampires came out of the circle one after another…”

“I see.”

 

It was a magic circle for teleportation then.

But the palace should have defensive measures put in place for such magic.

It should not be easy to simply create a magic circle inside of the palace.

Though, perhaps it would be possible if a finished magic circle was brought in from the outside.

 

As a Sorcerer, I began to search for traces.

Behind me, Shia and Goran were questioning the vampire.

Of course, Eric had taken the princesses to another room.

 

“This…”

 

I found an item that held great magic within.

    • I was thinking that too. Like those times when a goddess in the form shows human form. Or like Nine Netherbird.
