10 Years After Saying 'Leave this to me and go,' I Became a Legend - Chapter 216
Dark Wraith Hunt
It was the moment that the dark wraith stopped moving.
Grulf had run past me and jumped.
Grulf’s fangs sank into the dark wraith’s neck. And then he twisted it.
The dark wraith let out a confused scream.
“The fangs went into the dark wraith!”
Behind me, Kathe and Mors sounded astonished. In fact, so was I.
Grulf held the dark wraith down with his claws and fangs.
The dark wraith’s body was made of magical energy. It wasn’t made of matter.
There was no smell and you couldn’t see or hear it unless it was about to use magic.
That’s why it was able to go through the walls of Danton’s house.
The beastkin wolves had good ears and eyes and a sharp sense of smell. And they were also immune to the psychological attacks of vampires.
So in other words, wraiths were the perfects monsters to send if you wanted to infiltrate the mansion of a beastkin chief.
However, spirit beasts were apparently able to treat wraiths like any other monster.
“So Grulf can hold wraiths down…”
A spirit beast wolf. Maybe it was their special power.
Grulfs fangs and nails and even body were not ordinary.
I finished preparing my magic while Grulf held it down.
The pillar of energy transformed into a cage.
While the cage was up, it would deplete my magic. And it used up a lot.
This was an original spell of mine that had no name. It was an emergency measure to deal with the dark wraith.
After it was 90% done, I said to Grulf:
“Grulf, you can let go now.”
And then I closed the cage just as Grulf lept out.
“That was good work, Grulf. Brilliant.”
I had to use both my hands to maintain the cage, and so I could not pet him.
However, I praised him with words. Grulf wagged his tail happily.
I would give him lots of pets later.
Kathe and Mors quickly reached us.
“You caught it?”
“Mister Locke. That was amazing.”
“Kathe and Mors. You can tell where the dark wraith is?”
“I am using Magic Search.”
“I too am using Magic Search and can tell. But I wouldn’t be able to tell without it.”
So Kathe and Mors were also only able to see it that way.
So that meant even powerful sorcerers had to use magic in order to see it.
Magic Search didn’t use up too much energy. However, you couldn’t have it activated all the time.
Most of the beastkin wolves were not able to use Magic Search. And so they would not be able to tell if there was an intruder.
We would have to think of a new way to deal with the dark wraiths.
That being said, the first thing to do was to deal with the one in front of us.
Was it possible to question a dark wraith?
Could I obtain information from it without questioning it?
As I thought about this, the dark wraith began to speak.
“It can talk!”
Grulf and Kathe were very surprised.
“Of course it can speak the language of humans.”
And so I explained it to Kathe.
It wouldn’t be much of a spy if it couldn’t understand the words humans said.
It would have to be able to read and understand human writing as well.
“And if it could listen to us, then it shouldn’t be surprising that it can talk.”
Kathe and Grulf were now satisfied.
If it could talk, then it could be questioned.
I kept the cage up with magic as I approached it.
“Who sent you here?”
“How many times have you infiltrated this place?”
“So you won’t answer me then.”
The dark ones were tight-lipped.
Well, perhaps you would be if you were a follower of the Evil God.
“What are you going to do?”
“If it won’t answer me, then it will have to die.”
“I suppose there is nothing else to do.”
It was taking a lot of energy just keeping the cage intact.
That being said, I had a lot of energy to spend. It was unlikely that I would quickly run out and not be able to keep it up.
Still, the situation would be very bad if I had to keep it up and then we were suddenly attacked by an evil dragon.
And since we didn’t know when we could suddenly be attacked, it did not make sense to keep the dark wraith prisoner like this.
“Any last words?”
I asked. But I doubted that it would say anything.
However, it surprisingly opened its mouth.
“What do you mean?”
“I see. I suppose you are planning a large scale attack?”
The dark wraith did not let out another word.
And so I gave up trying to gain information, and instead, killed the dark wraith with a magic spear.
After that, I used Magic Search and Magic Exploration to see if there were any others in the area.
“So this was the only intruder.”
I muttered. And then Kathe said,
“So, no magic stones appear when a dark wraith dies.”
“Well, darks wraiths and wraiths are not made of matter.”
“That’s no fun.”
They were hard to find and difficult to kill. And even if you did, you were not rewarded.
And so Adventurers did not care to hunt them.
“Now, let’s return to the mansion.”
I needed to share the news to the chiefs as quickly as possible.
