Skeleton Soldier Couldn't Protect the Dungeon - Chapter 453
453 Blind Moon, Sunset Flower (30)
Choronoul steered us southeast.
The direction was straight.
There are often hills or valleys, but they jump lightly.
Even if you can’t ride a kitty.
I felt refreshed because I didn’t have a swarm of flying monsters.
As I ran in a steep straight line for a day, a huge forest appeared in front of my eyes.
“It’s Wind Forest. Once we’re over this forest, it’ll be a swamp den.”
He said, shaking the flames.
Fireflies flock to the entrance of the forest behind them.
“Is this where the monsters stay?”
“Rather than staying… it’s a great place to run, isn’t it, just out of the realm of the god of flowers? Let’s concentrate and get through this.”
“… Got it. ”
I came all this way without difficulty, but I couldn’t let my guard down.
In these woods.
Maybe something will pop out.
The Marquis was wary whether he thought about it or not.
We walked into the woods.
The early evening forest was scattered around without the red paint from above picking up the leaves.
In between, there is a commotion as the small insects that send a mating signal light on their tails.
The distance between tall, thick trees is quite spacious, and there are trails throughout the forest.
The cologne leads us quickly, with little hesitation in the many forks of the forest.
It was just little insects flying around with little wings.
After a while, I feel a much heavier posture.
Humans approaching from the west are caught at the edge of the detection zone.
Where we’re going is southeast.
The direction is wrong.
We’re going a long way down, and we’re not going to run into each other like this.
Leandro opens his mouth as if something was wrong.
“Humans are moving fast. What are they doing here?”
“Well, maybe we should take a walk in the woods. Maybe he came here to pick some fruit because there’s nothing to eat where he used to live. ”
The Marquis gives a suspicious glance at the words of the cologne.
“I don’t think that’s what it looks like from the movement. ”
The flame that guided me replied with a slightly annoying tone.
“Look, how do I know what’s going on with these people? And what, you don’t have anything to fight them for anyway? Isn’t that right?”
“I’ll ask why.” It’s the same person.
He’s also interested in Humans from the east.
Of course, it’s funny to know that even humans kill like wingworms.
“How do you ask? Do you know how to defend yourself? Will you ask this monster for me?”
The cologne wool gave me cotton.
“It’s a lot more embarrassing for the humans here to be filmed with us for nothing. Do you want to help the humans? Then getting rid of the doppelgangers quickly will make their lives better. ”
Did he think there was no way he could do it alone because he couldn’t speak the language?
Leandro turns away from the flames without further conversation.
‘I don’t think I’m convinced.
Maybe we should go first.
I made the woods run faster with him.
Slope or thick tree roots.
The curvature of the terrain did not disturb us.
The road was peaceful.
There are no signs of combat or murder at all.
However, as I went deeper into the forest, I felt more and more uneasy.
Only the weak are inside, and I didn’t feel any signs of a powerful monstrosity.
The Marquis’s expression seems to be getting harder and harder as he feels the same.
I don’t feel caught.
If there’s something coming, you can measure it, but it’s not.
“Yeah, we’re doing great. Let’s get through here. ”
We are encouraged by cologne wool smiling.
“… Wait. ”
The Marquis has stopped.
“Huh? What is it? Suddenly what?”
When I stopped following him, I was surprised by the sound of panic and asked.
The baron stands there and calmly says.
“You seem to be dodging too many human miracles.
Obviously, it was much faster to go in a straight line, but I felt a human prowess in that path and went around for a long time. ”
“A straight line is not always the quickest path. Obstacles…….”
Leandro lightly dismantles the flame.
“Since when do we get disturbed by the terrain? And then, while I was walking around, I felt a human intelligence, and I turned around again. ”
“Never a coincidence. ”
Leandro speaks quietly.
I already have confidence in my eyes. And his eyes are on me.
If you think about it,
I was arguing with the cologne, but it sounded like everything was telling me to listen in the first place.
Listen and feel.
The subject of persuasion is.
It was me.
‘… I didn’t care.’
The moment I thought Leandro was right.
“Oh, my God. ”
The spark spoke in a quirky voice.
“You said they’d be surprised to see us. Let’s get out of here. You don’t want to be a bother to the humans. ”
Let’s hear it.
Even I felt bad about it.
Since when does he care so much about humans?
The Grand Duke turned his head and looked at me with the attitude that he didn’t deserve to hear such stories.
He turns to me and says, “Convincing the Marquis of Darkness is over.”
“Look at this. Let’s be reasonable. What would the Humans do if you went there? Huh? He may be a Human, but he also looks different. Besides, don’t you think the vibe is dirty and that people here are suspicious invaders? It’s better for the humans to live their lives, and it’s better for them to get things done quickly. ”
I looked at the cologne wool that was trying so hard to persuade me.
Turn your head to the side.
I looked back at Leandro, who finished with a single word.
At that moment.
Out in the woods.
In the wind.
You hear a faint scream from a distance that’s not clear where it is.
Human emotions that have been avoided so far.
I was able to accurately read the air that filled the forest.
The fears of the humans are filling up all around you.
To the detection range.
Only humans felt it.
Did he not think that the strange atmosphere of this forest was made of Humans (Fear)?
It was not just the fear of humans that I felt now.
A long time ago.
A dreadful horror engraved deep within the Wind Forest itself.
If you think about it,
It was weird from the start.
Even though neither land nor trees died, so far, not a single living animal has been found.
‘If you are sane…….’
No wonder those sentient beasts don’t come in.
I noticed the identity of the feeling of disguise in the forest.
But we can see the direction.
As soon as I heard the scream, I did not hesitate, and even ran west ahead of Leandro.
Something’s hidden in the cologne.
About this forest.
should be checked.
“Look! South-east… ugh. ”
Flames pour out complaints.
After catching up with me, Leandro glances at me.
There is some kindness and trust in the eyes of surprise.
I ran faster.
Out of detection range in an instant,
Let’s run about three kilometers.
I can feel it everywhere.
It is a powerful initiative that is distinct from humans.
‘Let’s kill the footsteps.’
We exchange our eyes for the Marquis.
You sneak up on the two closest monsters.
It’s a technique right next to Humans. If I was surprised, I might kill them and run away.
I lowered my posture and carefully walked through the grass.
There was a big tree, and I saw a man on top of it.
There are two monsters holding a man’s arms.
‘You look strange. ”
Skin is as white as the moon.
They were about the size of human children.
It looked the same.
Like a boy and a girl.
It’s just that two horns are sticking out in front of your forehead.
Instead, it looks like an underwater tunnel with two eyes as deep as a protruding horn.
Except for the sticky tentacles that come out of the body, which are wrapped around the limbs of humans.
The cologne whispers small.
A situation where a monster and a human body are tangled.
Even the Marquis couldn’t run away. He was watching.
“The festival, they say. I can’t find anything to eat because of the other pigs. I had a really hard time getting here. ”
The monster on the left opens his mouth.
The moment the mouth that was the size of an ordinary human child opened up, it was torn in half.
At that moment, the right-hand beast heavily strikes the branch with a bundle of tentacles.
The creature on the left screams.
“I’ve got a thorn in my hand! Thorns!”
My mouth was torn open and the slime poured out.
But the creature on the right is unafraid.
“Hey, Chu! Are you trying to eat my whole head right now? Absolutely not. ”
The beast, called Chuchu, drools without stopping his jaw.
“Hehe. All I have to do is eat my head. Eat the rest, Ming. ”
“Shut up. You always eat your heart, pretending to eat your head. I’ve done it three times today. I’m not fooling you. ”
“But……. you can eat all your limbs. ”
The beast, called Ming, once again raises a sharp thorn in his tentacle.
“Absolutely not. This time I’m gonna eat your head and your heart. Especially since his heart looks so chewy. He already smells different from the drooling ones. ”
“But……. her arms must be delicious too. You’re well trained. He must be some kind of exceptional swordsman. ”
“Hm. But he ran away first, so he’s probably just a decent guy and not very good at it. ”
“Yes? Then… Ming, can I eat all this? ”
“No. He didn’t faint and just fled all the way out here. He’s real. Maybe the tastiest human I’ve ever eaten…… hey! Chu Chu!”
The left monster, who seemed to be listening to the analysis, opened his mouth to his chest and tried to eat the whole man.
It was when the right monster was about to rush the man toward him due to the sudden act of anger.
The mouth of the left peculiar creature that flares to your chest does not close again, and you fall straight down the tree.
Both arms of the right beast, which extends in front of you, fall straight down.
The blue light spins quickly without a shadow.
I bent the monsters who were about to regenerate and tore them apart.
I was caught by two monsters that the Marquis had sharpened, but I received a man who fell without balancing.
The man was alive. I was distracted, and all I could do was shake my head.
“I’m here to help. ”
But there was no struggle.
I just keep my eyes tighter and my ears blocked with my hands.
I felt like I was completely out of my mind, overwhelmed by extreme horror at what I saw.
“Hey! Wake up. What the hell is going on? ”
I slapped him on the cheek with shock therapy.
Did I hit him too hard?
I think I fainted at all.
As the monsters say,
Your body looks strong.
“I’ll go and ask for another human nearby. ”
The Marquis told me, and he was annoyed.
“Phew! Really! Ask him what? You don’t have to ask me that! ”
“No, I agree with him. I need to go to the Humans and hear the situation properly.”
Why Humans are running.
Why do I feel fear?
I care about every conversation these monsters have had.
Let me be decisive.
He shouted as if there was nothing he could do.
“I know why! I don’t need any water!”
At the same time, Leandro was flawed.
The flame slowly looked at the movements that were felt everywhere.
“It’s a festival. The prey that I cherished… Unlike other Humans, the human city was protected and raised by the doppelgangers, and the town was freed as a prey. Then, all the monsters that had been drooling without touching were gathered when they were under the protection of the doppelgangers.”
“What the… noise…….”
“Just grazing and hunting is no fun. Humans of a certain degree of civilization are particularly tasty. Protecting humanity, unprotecting when they think they are special beings, and truly a special breed chosen by the doppelgangers, and when they become arrogant, they open a festival.”
“Wind Forest, where the festival takes place. Looks like they opened a little early this time. They’re coming for us.”
