Cthulhu Gonfalon - Chapter 116
Chapter 116: Chapter 116
“Rank, what are you coming back for?” When he saw the students returning, Ray was unhappy, and he frowned.
“I want to fight. I want to help my teacher. I want to protect the refugees!” Rank was afraid, but he answered seriously.
“If you help to maintain order, you are helping me and are protecting them.”
“As Liv is there doing these things, it’s enough, because she can do it very well. When teacher Parne was young, a large number of monsters haunted the Golden Tower City, and he temporarily gathered a group of people. They swept that area for two months and almost extinguished the monsters that had attempted to form a beast army. Liv is the child of Pahn. She inherited his blood and talents, grew up under his guidance, and she can do a good job of maintaining order and leading a group of refugees to escape.” Rank had consider this and replied without hesitation, “I can’t help over there, so I’d rather come here, at least I can kill a few more murlocs!”
“You can kill murlocs with such humble strength?” Ray sniffed at his words.
Rank suddenly blushed, “Teacher… I’m also very powerful! Not long ago I contested several adventurers, and I was successful in some sessions!”
To be honest, his strength was indeed good and he could be considered a qualified adventurer. He could at least be a small captain in the Sea Defence Forces of Garth City. He would lead six or seven individuals and be independent when the situation was not very crucial. In contrast to the rookie he was a few months ago, he had been reborn.
However, in Ray’s view, his strength was far from enough!
“Where do you think you are? Is this a field of friendly games?” he said sulkily. “This is a battlefield against the invasion of the maritime races! You are not faced with kind adventurers, but countless maritime armies that you can’t kill them all! You have really made progress and now you can be considered a good adventurer, but what is the point of that!!”
He reached out his hand and Rank saw the murlocs rushing from afar against the bombardment of magical cannons.
“See? See the number of them!” he said angrily. “Do you know that at least ten people with an ability similar to yours died in the battle just now? And that was only a tentative attack!”
“Leave! Leave! If the fight starts, you can’t leave even if you want to!”
Rank bowed his head, and kept silent for a moment. He then raised his head again with a tenacious look in his eyes.
“Teacher, I haven’t planned to leave yet since I came back!”
Ray was dumbfounded and looked at him, not daring to believe him.
“You and Teacher Pahn both taught me the virtues of the knight: humility, honor, sacrifice, bravery, mercy, faith, honesty, and fairness. I’m not strong enough; I’m not smart enough; I can’t practice the eight virtues one by one. But even I know that this time it is time for the knight to sacrifice!”
“You are by no means a knight!” Ray roared. “You haven’t graduated yet!”
“Then, let me be on your side for this last lesson.” Rank raised his sword, “I swear by this oath. I will show mercy to the weak, bravely fight against all evil and injustice, fearlessly sacrifice, and firmly defend my honor… Teacher, as I have managed to practice half of the eight virtues, am I qualified as a knight apprentice?”
Speaking of this, he finally laughed, and he showed a look of joy and anticipation on his still childish face.
It was the look of a child who did what he believed to be the right thing, and who longed for recognition from his parents and teachers, and for praise.
Ray wanted to sternly refute him, to use his debating skills he learned from his his teacher who was a world-renowned scholar, and to scold this kid so that he couldn’t lift his head and could only leave awkwardly. However, when he saw Rank’s look and saw the childish look of anticipation, he felt that there was an inexplicable excitement that made him unable to speak.
Once upon a time, he was like Rank: full of enthusiasm and anticipation, wanted to become an outstanding knight, wanted to get the approval of teachers and his father through his own actions, wanted to uphold justice as a knight, and wanted to be a world-renowned hero…
He turned to prevent Rank from seeing the tears in his eyes, and he said in the toughest tone, “Since you have decided, then come with me! Grab your sword firmly and never fall off! You are my student and cannot die in this small place!”
Rank was dumbfounded, then understood his teacher’s meaning, and could not help but laugh.
He knew that his teacher really recognized him.
So he nodded heavily and replied, “I’ll work harder!”
“Don’t talk big. A knight must use action to prove himself!”
As they talked, the murlocs army had rushed in front of them against the bombardment of the magical cannons.
With Ray and the old officer taking the lead, the defenders shouted together, waved their weapons, and rushed towards the army.
With the flash of knives and swords, blood splattered.
“You b*stard! Who sent you!” Sui Xiong shouted, and his tentacles fluttered wildly. Each blow left a deep crack in the ground like a scar. He said, “Confess honestly!”
Just now, he finally and completely blocked the space of this zone and blocked the retreat of the Shadow Devil. After losing the ability to freely shuttle between the main plane and the shadow plane, for all the flexibility the red-black ghost had, it became a bit awkward when faced with the dozens of Sui Xiong’s mighty tentacles.
So he couldn’t help but snarl and ask again, trying to ask who was behind the scene.
Because his heart was full of unease, he felt that something dangerous was happening, but he had no clue what.
This made him anxious, annoyed and irritated. He was not a person who was good at reasoning and speculating. Faced with this extremely urgent situation, he could hardly be calmed down and think slowly, so he chose to use force to press for the answer.
However, the Shadow Devil still said nothing. At the moment, it had no power to fight back. It could only hide in the turbulent attacks. Seeing the situation become more and more unfavorable, it didn’t mean to admit defeat, let alone confess.
“You b*stard! You b*stard!” Sui Xiong scolded it angrily, fiercely slamming tentacles, and finally seizing the opportunity to hit the body of Shadow Devil.
The red-black figure dodged lightly and turned into a transparent body. Normally it should be able to protect itself against ordinary physical attacks. However, under the swift attack of the hero, his hard work was completely useless. It heard only a tragic crack and a noticeably large cavity opened on its body. It was almost turned into a thin paper and broken in two pieces.
This attack apparently hit the Shadow Devil fiercely. It had kept quiet since it began to fight against Sui, but he became unable to keep silent and cried tragically.
The voice was extremely tragic. It was like many people, male, female, young and old, were being massacred, and all sorts of screams came together into a horrible voice.
“Speak! Who sent you here!” Sui Xiong waved his tentacles in all directions and turned them into a wall of iron and copper that surrounded Shadow Devil, “If you don’t speak, I will kill you!”
The red-black figure trembled violently, likely afraid, but this trembling was quickly gone. Its body shivered, and a strange light glowed.
Sui Xiong clearly felt that there was an astonishing amount of energy in its body.
“Shoot!” He instantly realized what was going on and hurried back, but it still was a step later.
A crashing sound accompanied the shock of everything. The shock waves caused by the intense explosion even rushed above the clouds, shook the clouds in the sky and shattered them into pieces of misty smoke.
This evil that had done countless evils in the human world actually chose to self-destruct!
On the other side, the battle had now come to an end.
Under the joint attack of Sui Xiong and Heimsarah, Timsar was in distressed circumstances. Perhaps according to its original plan, it would send the old opponent into the prepared trap to kill Heimsarah and gain success. However, because of Sui Xiong’s intervention, mistakes took place in the transmission and the situation was completely reversed.
It certainly tried to escape, but how could Heimsarah let it go! It immediately rushed towards it and wrapped it firmly. Their power came from the same source, so they were interdependent but also mutually restrained. When Heimsarah wrapped it, it was immediately locked where it was, and it couldn’t walk away.
Sui Xiong’s attack made its situation even worse, and it was more embarrassed since before it could have endured for a long period of time.
Unlike Heimsarah, who was somewhat dull, Sui Xiong was very flexible. He was able to move quickly in the sea, allowing him to quickly find the right position and launch a violent attack on it even if Timsar had changed the place of its core.
If it was only a one-on-one fight, then Timsar could deal with Sui’s attack. But now almost all of its power had been hampered by Heimsarah. All it could do was to shift its central core to cover areas and protect it as much as possible.
But how could Sui Xiong give it that chance? The chilling torrents of the road were almost connected to one another. The sequel was like a sharp knife, constantly tearing its negative energy and huge body and taking it directly to hide it.
It seemed that it wouldn’t take long before Timsar, the devil who had plagued the area for many years, saw its end.
So although it had always brought fear to others, it finally felt the taste of fear.
In the body full of bones and turbid stream, the core of the supernatural power hidden in the deepest place trembled violently, sending its message towards a certain existence.
In the next moment, the sea growled.
The surface of the sea began to shake as if it was boiling. Even the distant maritime forces that were reorganizing their troops to attack the Garth Port were affected, and the bodies of men and horses littered the ground.
With this vibration and roar, a wild laughter echoed in the sea.
“Sarament, you finally surrendered to me!”
The laughter wasn’t concrete. It was just an idea. The joyful emotions of the laughter were even more vivid. Along with this, there was chilling majesty coming in that overshadowed everything in the sea.
“Goddess of Ocean?!”
