Youkedo turned his horse round and was going to leave.His eyes came across that of the bystanders’. To avoid making trouble was thebottom line of Han Jin. But as for how to make judgments was another thing. The old man had made it clear before dying that the knight named Youkedo was completely an ungrateful beast who bit the hands that fed him. Thus the expression reflected from their eyes was more or less disdainful.
Youkedo must have perceived the disdain in their eyes. An evil thought crept into his mind. Actually he was not a bold man and did all these only to scrape a living in this turbulent world. His old master had been killed on the spot due to disobeying the order of the castellan. It was understandable for him to take refugesomewhere elsefor the sake of his own future.
But, he was neither a sheer bad guy, nor a good person. It required great ability and wisdom to keep a position betwixt, otherwise, it’s easy to make mistakes. If Youkedo chose to be a good person, he had taken his young master to run far away. Though life of fleeing might be hard, it’s better than being condemned by his own conscience. If he determined to be a bad person and cast off all his disguises, he had already killed the old butler earlier and by no means could young master Reg have chance to escape, not to mention the things happened later!
The facts had proved that to be a pendulum was the least wise decision. Youkedo had his own sorrow that he didn’t want to reveal. He tried to be kind to his young master for their previous master-servant relationship, but his young master seized the opportunity to slip away; He wanted to spare the life of the old butler, whomhe had flattered in the past, but only made himself be scolded and lose face. How could he command the other knights if he let the old guy insult him at random?
Now even the villagers dared to show contempt to him. He could no longer control his anger, “You professionals! Why do you hide in this place stealthily? Are you spies from the Black Raven City?” He shouted.
Han Jin and the rest were totally dumbfounded. Why would trouble still come to them even they had kept silence and done nothing? Before they could explain, Youkedo had waved his hand, “Arrest them!” He gave the order.
Some of the knights stormed to them, but hesitated when they saw the badge before Moxinke’s chest, “My Lord, they…” One of the knights whispered with some timidity in his eyes.
Youkedo slapped the knight on his face without consideration, “You dare to disobey my order?” He roared.
The knight ground his teeth and went ahead regardless of his fear. He raised his lance and pointed at the professionals in distance, “Lay down your arms, if you don’t want to die!”He shouted to them.
Han Jin let out a long sigh. It’s too outrageous! At least there would be some certain kind of excuses in the past. What’s the excuse now?
Moxinke stared at Han Jin, the same did the others. Among them Han Jin had taken up an unshakable position as the decision makerdue to various reasons. For instance, he helped them in practice by his special magics, he risked his own life for the safety of them all, and he put forward a great aim, or a remote dream, to lead them into a new road of efforts , even though it was a very long road to go.
Han Jin raised his head, looked into the eyes of the Knight called Youkedo, and said word by word, “Fuck… you!”
“What?” Youkedo was stupefied.
“What an idiot you are! Each time someone curse you, you want they to repeat it… Do you enjoy being scoffed?”Han Jin ridiculed, “If so, I will help you to fulfill your wish! Fuck you!”
Moxinke moved a few steps forward in a slow pace with a grim smile on face. He looked at the knights opposite to him coldly.The giant sword at his waist was ready to be unsheathed. Sunier let out a light sigh, stepped back and then jumped onto the roof, taking off her long bow. At the same time, Cessacioun had already released his Magic Shield with his wand firmly grasped in hand, waiting for the combat to be broken out; while Steelberg, Michelle and the other feeble ones had run away at their fastest speed and hidden into the cellar.
All of these were done by tacit agreement, though this small team of Han Jin had no specific disciplines at all. Their cooperation had become a custom. Everyone knew what to do and where to stand.
The knights in front of them this time were different from and far inferior to those they met last time.The latter were a team of elites from the Holy Crown City, while these were just guards responsible for escorting the heavy weapons.
“You…” Youkedo trembled due to fury. He was also aware of his own recklessness when he saw the badge of Moxinke.But it’s no use crying over spilt milk. He had no other ways to conciliate the conflict except fighting.
The steed under Youkedo snorted restlessly with its hoof treading on the man who was lying on the ground unconsciously. The man let out a light groan, and then opened his eyes. The first sight he saw was the approaching knights with lances, and on the other side, the sturdy Moxinke who was raising a giant sword and the grinning Han Jin. Hefainted again.
“Kill them!”Youkedo growled.
But suddenly, an arrow appeared and pierced through his back before it showed again on his chest. A strip of blood splashed out like fountain. Youkedo looked down unbelievably at himself, and tumbled down onto ground heavily from his horse.
Han Jin was also stunned and wondered since when Sunier’s shooting skill had became so artistic that she could make the arrow take a detour to kill the enemy from back. He turned around at the roof, but only to find her eyes also wide open with shock and nervousness.
A bunch of black stuff swooped down from the sky suddenly. They looked like bats, but much larger, with their wings more than three meters long and pupils red exuding a faint red glow. Inside their mouths there were sharp tusks, making them look even more terrifying.
They folded their wings before landing among the knights one after another, and turned into human-like creatures with disgusting appearance. Their long and thin nails looked soft, but wereextremely sharp in fact and tore the armors as easily as paper together with the flesh of the knights and horses.
Streams of blood spattered out everywhere.Debris of flesh and organs fell down like rain drops. The whole village was turned into an abattoir, and those strange creatures were slaughtering the knights as if they were butchering animals. Under their feet was the squelchingmeat from those knights and horses, and on their cloaks was the fresh blood that kept spilling from their preys each time they swirled their bodies.
The knights who were swaggering just now all became lambs waiting to be butchered. But they were still fighting, even though they had been close to overall collapsing. Han Jin felt confused.
The fact was, the knights really wanted to run away, butthey couldn’t!
“God… The guards of vampires of Zaganide!” Moxinke’s face turned pale.
