10 Years After Saying 'Leave this to me and go,' I Became a Legend - Chapter 280
Chapter 280 – Invading the Embassy
The woman was dressed in metal light armor. She must be an Adventurer.
“You people. This is a state of emergency. Please evacuate to your rooms.”
“A state of emergency?”
But we did not stop running. And then the woman began to run alongside us.
She did not become out of breath and had no trouble keeping up. Clearly, she was well-trained.
The Adventurer then pointed to the sky.
“There are dragons above the city. Currently, they have shown no signs of attacking, but we do not know what will happen.”
Apparently, this Adventurer was acting under Goran’s orders, and was working to get civilians to evacuate.
In order to make people evacuate without talking about Vampires and the divine protection, they decided to use Kathe’s battle with the dragons as an excuse.
Goran must have thought of that idea. And I agreed, it was a good idea to use their battle.
There were over a dozen giant dragons battling in the sky. Everyone could tell at a glance that something unusual was happening.
So the civilians should obey without question.
As the Adventurer continued to run alongside us with a worried expression, Shia showed her Adventurer card.
“You do not have to worry about that. We are moving on the Guild Master’s orders.”
Shia was a B-Rank Adventurer. That was a first-rate rank.
The Adventurer looked at the card and then at Shia. And then she looked at me and Grulf.
After that, she turned to Serulis and her expression turned to that of surprise.
“So that is why you’re here. Well, please be careful.”
“Thank you. You too.”
She must have recognized Serulis as Goran’s daughter.
‘So that’s why there were so few people around. The Adventurers Guild has been warning them.’
‘It appears to be the case. It will make it easier to fight.’
Currently, Goran must be working hard to keep the people of the royal capital safe.
And so I would also have to do what I could.
It would take about half an hour on foot to reach the embassy from the gates of the palace.
And yet we had run through in less than ten minutes.
While running, we pulled down our hoods to cover our faces.
I was sure the dark ones already knew we were here, but it was just a precaution.
‘The mist is so thick.’
Within the embassy, from the ground to quite high up, the place was enveloped in a thick mist.
It made the building look like a white tower.
‘But the mist is no problem. Lord Gerberga, if you would be so kind.’
After breathing in, Lord Gerberga let out a high-pitched, godly cry.
The sound shot out at a high speed, and erased the white mist.
However, there were still some left that looked like clouds.
I suppose Lord Gerbera’s voice hadn’t been able to reach it.
That being said, it was so high up that I could barely tell if it was mist or just clouds.
And so it shouldn’t affect the coming battle.
‘Thank you, Lord Gerberga. That is a great help.’
‘What will we do now? Go over the wall?’
Serulis said as she looked at the high walls surrounding the embassy.
It was easily twice as tall as a grown man.
‘We could do that, or…’
It would be troublesome if we scaled the wall and there were traps on the other side. All they had to do was place spears where we would land.
They could also have blades near the top of the walls as well.
And while we humans might be able to use ropes to climb up, it would be very difficult for Grulf to jump over.
‘I will break the wall then.’
After all, the enemy already knew that we were here the moment that Lord Gerberga cried and erased the mist.
There was no point in being stealthy now. They were waiting for us.
And so I decided to use magic to make a hole in the wall.
It was made of hard and smooth white stone.
And I fired off a magic bullet into it to destroy it.
There was now a hole that was just big enough for two people to go through at the same time.
I took the lead as we entered the Ringain embassy. Of course, I was sure to cast Magic Exploration.
And just as I thought, on the other side of the wall, there were rows of spears that were concealed in the bushes.
It was designed so that even during the day, it would be difficult to see them. And so it would be even harder at night time.
If you jumped down, expecting to land in soft grass, you would lose your life.
And so I cut down the spears with my Devil King Sword.
‘…Had we jumped down from the walls, we would have been pierced when landing.’
‘You have magic, Mr. Locke, so you can manage. But warriors would find this difficult to deal with.’
Once you start falling, there would be little you could do, even if you somehow managed to notice the spears.
There would be so little time before landing. You would either have to activate gravity magic or some other magic to destroy the spears quickly.
If you weren’t a skilled sorcerer, you would not make it in time, and would end up skewered.
It was definitely an effective trap for invaders.
‘Since the embassy often handles secret information, it’s no surprise that they have countermeasures for invaders, but…’
‘The will to kill is so high.’
We talked about such things as we walked towards the inside of the embassy.
