It now seemed that an explanation with words was not going to do any good.
And so I took out the vampires stones from my bag.
These I placed on the table.
The Marquis and his wife looked at them with suspicion.
“And what is this?”
“This and this are magic stones from Vampire Lords. And these here are from Arch Vampires.”
The Marquis looked confused.
Shia chimed in from the side.
“Mister Locke. Most people aren’t familiar with…”
“…Oh, I guess that’s right.”
I put the stones back in my bag.
They wouldn’t be able to tell which monsters they came from by looking at them.
Adventurers were able to tell how strong the monster was by just looking at the stones.
Strong monsters had large, brighter stones.
And so the stones from Vampire Lords were very large and bright.
That being said, it still did not mean much to the average person.
Shia asked in a quiet voice,
“What should we do?”
“Yes. I will just have to use my trump card.”
I took out the necklace that Eric had given me. It proved that I was a representative of the king.
“It’s true that Philly wanted my help, but…”
“That! I had no idea that you represented the king! How insolent of us!”
The Marquis and his wife immediately kneeled before us.
Well, the necklace was quite effective indeed.
