Your Majesty, Please Behave Yourself - Chapter 2
Thick smoke and flames filled the academy, cluttering the eyes.
Licinius stood in the corridor and watched the thugs raging in the academy from afar.
The captured students were herded together like quails.
The building was empty as if no one was there.
“I have to say, the people in this college are really stupid, every time they encounter an attack, they are like a bunch of sardines, running out one after another, only to be caught by the thugs guarding the door, all of them, not a single one. They might as well hide in the classroom…”
Generally speaking, these warlock riots are just money grabs.
So, as long as a certain number of hostages are captured, they stop.
They wouldn’t turn the academy upside down looking for the hiding ones, that would be a waste of time.
Noren agreed with him on that, “It really is stupid.”
Just then, her eyes sharpened as she focused on the bottom of the stairs.
A group of people rushed up from downstairs. it seemed that they were waiting for an ambush there.
The moment the one in front saw the two upstairs, he froze,
It was a handsome blond-haired young man with a large steel sword tied behind his back.
Behind him was a female archer, and a big man holding a shield.
As well as a shivering Loli Mage hiding at the back.
“Cecil? Is that you?”
Licinius was stunned for a moment. The group of people in front of him were members of the praesidium of this academy. They usually avoided dealing with him regularly. Perhaps because he was a nobleman, he was inexplicably regarded as an enemy.
Cecil is the president of the student council, the representative of the entire academy, and the adopted son of the old principal. He has a very good talent for magic and is already a second-tier warlock. He’s known as the light of the commoners.
And his teammates, who are also elites in this academy, are the pride of commoners and have always regarded nobility as corporeal waste.
“We’re in charge of the rescue operation! Were you… not caught?”
Cecil was surprised at first, and then his face suddenly froze.
Because next to the dandy young master, he saw a girl who was as cold as a glacier.
Yep, having a fourth-order warlock as a bodyguard… he can definitely survive on his own.
“This time, the matter is very urgent. A group of thugs suspected of escaping the battlefield wanted to hijack the school. Principal Bann and the professors have already evacuated first under our escort, but more than half of the students were caught by that group! You’re just in time, come with us to save them!” The shield warrior said in surprise.
The archer and loli warlock looked at each other with surprise in each other’s eyes.
With the help of a powerful fourth-order warlock, the rescue operation will be very smooth.
However, the other two people on the opposite side did not speak.
Licinius thought that these guys really don’t know anything about melee warlocks.
It’s not that he doesn’t want to help, it’s just that it’s really inappropriate.
Unless Noren decimates all the gangsters and hostages together!
Seeing that they didn’t speak, the group of four remembered their class difference and the atmosphere became a little awkward.
After a long silence, Cecil took the lead and said, “You’re not with the others?”
Licinius said casually, “No, they all kept running out, we can’t control them.”
After hearing this, Cecil gave them a deep look, his expression turned indifferent, “Oh, so that’s the case… Why didn’t you do anything?”
“I’m not the president of the student council, and I don’t have much prestige among them. What should I have done?”
Licinius’s face was indifferent,
“Would they have listened to me?”
The four had overheard their conversation while they were waiting below the stairs.
In this academy, there has always been a divide between commoners and nobles.
Rather, this class antagonism has persisted for decades in the Brentania Empire.
Commoners believed that nobles were greedy, selfish, and incompetent.
And the nobles’ thought process was rather simple: a bunch of untouchables!
A scoundrel like Licinius is the most despised type by this group of civilian elites.
Therefore, the moment that they met, Licinius and Noren had probably already been labelled as selfish and secretive.
“Well, you guys are nobles, I have nothing to say.”
Cecil didn’t say anything, in any case, there is still a fourth-order warlock in the academy, this matter is definitely good news for them, there is no doubt about that.
At this moment, An old man’s angry voice echoed in the sky,
“All thugs in the school, listen to me, this is your last chance! Immediately release your hostages and surrender your weapons! Otherwise, the spear of justice will surely crucify you to the deepest depths of hell! You demons who have betrayed God will eventually be judged by God!”
Principal Bann roared,
“We, the teachers and students of the Royal Knights Academy will never compromise!”
Aside from the army, there were only a few high-level academy members standing behind him.
And a few professors who managed to escape.
The problem was that the students and teachers he said would never compromise were being herded into the square centre like a flock of ducks, crouching on the ground with their hands on their heads, shivering.
Dozens of people wearing clown masks were patrolling nearby, equipped with fire cannons, rune swords, and crystal staffs in their hands. It was obvious that this was an armed group of warlocks.
The hostages were held next to the fountain in the square, with gunpowder buried around them.
No one dared to make a move.
Once something happens, this group of armed thugs would not hesitate to go for the kill.
Cecil and his team immediately laid on the window to check the situation with a gloomy expression.
“Noren, what’s their strongest??”
Licinius asked casually but immediately regretted it: “Forget it, you reckless guy… ah, no, it should be a reckless girl! Forget it, their order doesn’t matter!”
Noren swept through the thugs downstairs with her coldly judgemental eyes,
“Although I don’t have magic perception, my intuition says I should be able to defeat 70% to 80% of their combat power, but for the hostages… I can’t control whether they live or die. I can only take you and break out, young master.”
Licinius was taken aback, “This group of people is that powerful?”
He is very aware of the girl’s fighting skills, her terrifying power is very rare throughout the world.
If even she can’t guarantee that this group of thugs can be completely wiped out, then today’s matter is somewhat troublesome.
Noren was silent for a few seconds, and looked in the direction of the square,
“This group isn’t simple, especially their leader, he gives me a very strange feeling that he may not be easy to deal with.”
Licinius raised his eyebrows and said nothing.
Cecil turned around and asked, “What level are they?”
Licinius kindly reminded him: “Noren finds it troublesome.”
Cecil and the others looked at them and twitched their lips.
Since the other party is so powerful, why don’t you join forces with us!
These people have almost written question marks on their faces.
However, Licinius did not panic at all.
Reckless action will only reveal flaws.
At this time, a thug glanced at the crowd for a moment, then grabbed a girl’s hair and pulled her out extremely roughly, ignoring her screams and cries, and forcibly pulled her to the front of the crowd.
Someone among the hostages exclaimed. She was the best civilian girl in the academy. Because of her poor family background, she had been working and studying hard. She’s friendly, kind, and very beautiful. She is pursued by many boys. She is a recognized and undisputed school flower.
Licinius also remembers this girl.
Ever since he confirmed he couldn’t learn magic, he used it as an excuse to sleep in class. But every time after class, he would find an extra notebook on his desk.
Those notes were full of notes about their lessons and magic.
It was specially sent to him by Triya.
Of course, it didn’t mean that Triya meant anything to him, it just showed how kind Triya was to everyone.
She helps everyone as much as she can.
The clown leader laughed wildly, held the girl at gunpoint, and shouted extremely arrogantly,
“Everyone outside listens to me! Don’t think we‘re scared of you. If we feared death, would we even think of rebellion? What do you think my dear principal? Give us 100,000 gold coins, arrange our retreat, and we will let them go.”
“With nowhere to go, we’ve long since accepted our deaths! If we’re going down, then we’re taking out as many people with us as we can!”
He used the gun to hold the girl’s head firmly, a grin etched on his face,
“Her sprayed brain must look very beautiful, won’t it?”
Triya knelt helplessly on the ground, clutching her lips and trembling, full of tears.
“Please, let me go, I still have a family, I have an elderly grandma…”
However, her cry was interrupted violently!
The clown leader shoved the gunpoint into her mouth fiercely, and said viciously, “Shut up!”
Cecil’s eyes instantly turned red, and his face warped with anger.
That’s the girl he loves!
He turned his head, looked at the master and servant who seemed to be indifferent to this matter and scolded in a low voice,
“Licinius! Triya helped you! If you still have a trace of dignity as a noble, let Noren help!”
Cecil shattered the glass and jumped down from the tall building,
At that moment, Principal Bann in the distance had an excited expression!
This old principal is not a fool. The reason why he scolded the thugs in the academy and kept the guards behind him was an act to buy time!
He believes in his adopted son!
At this moment, whether it is the unrelated onlookers or the hostages in the academy.
Everyone looked surprised and looked forward to it!
However, everyone did not expect the clown leader, who was getting carried away, to suddenly raise his head to look at the four people who are falling from the sky with cold, smug laughter coming from under the mask.
His pupils were suddenly covered with a strange bloody colour!
Cecil and the others felt their brains roar as if they were penetrated by countless sharp steel needles.
The four of them saw the world go dark as they lost their balance in an instant, and fell flat on the ground!
Everyone was stunned, then felt their minds tingling and shivering.
The group of four, who they had high hopes for, were instantly defeated!
Licinius also felt this mental sensation.
“Fuck, black magic!”
His eyes were filled with excitement, and the corners of his mouth almost reached the edge of his ears,
“Spiritual black magic!”
