My Daughter Grew Up to “Rank S” Adventurer - Chapter 56.5
“Eh… hey, is that okay?”
“I threw them in a river. If they die from the cold, they didn’t train hard enough, heh, heh… Oh, that was close. I almost killed my friend’s daughter.”
“… I could’ve won too, you know?”
“You bet! You look pretty strong, but I won’t fall that easily, surely you know that?”
Qashim laughed cheerfully and clasped Angeline’s shoulders.
“You’re leaving the place tonight, aren’t you? If so, I’m coming with you.”
“It’s okay. Just tell me about Bel. In exchange, I’ll tell you all about his past, too! Okay, Angeline?”
Qashim gleefully placed his tall hat on Angeline’s head, who giggled and held the hat by the brim.
“…Okay. If it’s about your father, I can talk about him all day long.”
“Hehe, I’m so glad Bel is alive! Let’s bring back the past we left behind!”
On the grounds of the Grand Duke’s mansion, where Angeline and the others had left off, there was a figure on the roof of the guest house.
The figure was watching the fight in front of the gate, and when it saw that it was over without a fight, it shook its head.
The figure with beautiful blond hair and white clothes was Crown Prince Benjamin.
Benjamin shrugged his shoulders in a boring manner and gave a thin smile.
“What a disappointment… You’ve made me think twice, and both times you’ve stopped me in my tracks, that’s a hell of a rush play, isn’t it?”
“I didn’t expect that, I thought I’d get a better test sample using Sky Crusher.”
Behind Benjamin stood a man in a white robe. He wore his hood pulled tightly over his eyes, and Benjamin grinned.
“It’s just that Baal, who has fallen out of love with me, was killed so easily. After all, Solomon’s original design was very clever. If something that seems unnecessary is missing, it still won’t work.”
“It can’t be helped. There’s a lot of things that can’t be deciphered with today’s technology.”
“But is it really a success? I held it up close to my shoulder, but I couldn’t make it out.”
“Well, I don’t know… but if it’s a success, then there will be no sign of the homunculus. On the contrary, I can’t really tell.”
Benjamin shook his head in exasperation.
“Oh well, I can’t help it if I can’t even tell if it was a success or not…but I’ve never had a girl not fall for this face of mine. It’s interesting, that girl.”
” You must have a very strong ego base. It would be interesting to look into it. If you are dependent on it, you might find something interesting if you can break that dependency.”
“But first, we need to find the key. To see if it’s a success.”
“There’s no rush. The people who had the Sky Crusher have already failed us. He’ll be erased by the purging agents soon enough.”
Benjamin laughed in amusement.
“It’s not very exciting not having any real competition, is it?”
“It’s okay. I’m not interested in competition myself.”
“Well, you’re not being very playful, are you?”
“Hmm, I don’t know what fun it is to be the crown prince.”
“Haha, it’s pretty good, isn’t it? Well, François, I think I’m going to have to ask him and the others to leave the world. I don’t want people talking about how the Crown Prince inspired them.”
The man in the robe turned on his heel.
“I’m going. Don’t get yourself in trouble.”
“You too, Schweizer.”
The man in the robe disappeared in a flash of light.
Benjamin stood there for a moment, but then disappeared.
