The large cloth was like a hardened ball that rolled down the hallway.
The giant object now blocked anyone from passing it. And the soldiers behind it were forced to stop.
The sphere had the weight of ten soldiers. It would be difficult to move.
As the palace soldiers struggled with it, Luknos and Imelda continued on their way.
“Those rumored Shadows have not appeared yet.”
“Either they are being summoned now or they are setting traps for us.”
“Maybe they have left the city in order to protect the young Dragon Masters?”
“That’s true. The attack over there has likely already started.”
Makoku had tried to keep the attack a secret.
However, information traveled when people moved.
And so they had been careful to ensure that even if the information did leak, it would only be about the plan to attack the students of the Dragon Academy.
In fact, up until the very last moment, Luknos and Imelda were the only ones who knew of the attack on the palace.
Up until the last moment, they had traveled with the team who would attack the students. And they had separated in a wasteland where no eyes were watching.
The king of Makoku knew that Ryukoku had great ability when it came to gathering information.
They would surely detect some movement.
That was why it was only the king, Luknos, and Imelda who knew. As long as they didn’t talk, then the plan wouldn’t get out.
“Now, it’s just a little farther until we reach the audience chamber. If she is not there, she will likely be in her private chamber in the back.”
“Yes, the person we are looking for will surely be there.”
The palace was in chaos. Sounds of fighting and objects breaking could be heard everywhere. As were the screams.
Their purpose was to take the queen’s head. That was all.
The other elites that were with them had one order. Block off her escape routes.
They had taken years to gain information about this palace. And they were using it all now.
This mission had to succeed at all costs.
Luknos opened the door that led to the audience chamber.
So, those must be the much-rumored Shadows. They tensed up a little.
“They were waiting here all along. Should we just ask them?”
“They are Ryukoku’s Shadows. Their mouths won’t open even if you torture them. So we must exterminate them and keep moving.”
“Very well. Allow me…”
Imelda said as she took one step forward.
