Your Majesty, Please Behave Yourself - Chapter 3
Surrounded by the garrison, Principal Bann’s confident expression collapsed inch by inch.
“Principal, were they the ace of the Royal Knights Academy that you talked about?”
A middle-aged officer with a black cloak had a firm and masculine face, but his eyes were a mysterious silver-white colour,
“He had the strength, but too bad… he was reckless. Although spiritual magic is rare, it’s not completely extinct. But if you’re unfortunate enough to encounter it, your group would be decimated.”
He is using perception magic to investigate the situation in the academy.
“Major Hayden is right.”
Headmaster Bann looked embarrassed,
“But isn’t this just a group of thugs? How can they have spiritual magic?”
Hayden said lightly, “They escaped from the ancient city of Hera.”
Headmaster Bann was stunned.
In the territory of the Eastern Continent, the Brentania Empire and the Loen Kingdom were neighbouring countries. There have been many conflicts and frictions between them in the past few years, especially with rumours of a full-scale war in the near future.
The reason behind the recent conflict is the ancient city of hera between their borders.
It is said that a large number of ancient ruins and extremely rare magical resources are buried below that ancient city. Although this was originally the territory of the Brentania Empire, it was close enough to the edge that the Loen Kingdom couldn’t let them have all the loot for themselves.
So the two sides clashed over the border issue.
“This group of people, known as clowns, used to be a mediocre team of adventurers, but they suddenly grew in power half a month ago. At that time, the Empress was still supervising the battle on the front line. And they dared to rebel under the eyes of the Empress. How? The Empress suspects that their increase in strength is from whatever they got in the ruins.”
“Of course, they are still very weak, even now. They must have someone instructing them to do this. Her Majesty the Empress has been watching them until today.”
In times of war, it is normal for some people to seek profit by provoking internal turmoil.
Whether it is the enemy country or the people within who are causing trouble.
Principal Bann’s eyes widened. He never expected that there was a shadow of the Empress behind this incident!
“So don’t worry, it’s all under our control.”
Hayden confidently said,
“There are people from Her Majesty among the students, the situation is foolproof.”
Headmaster Bann was relieved, but then he got confused again.
There are actually people arranged by the Empress in the academy!
Who would that be?
Hayden saw through his doubts and said with a smile, “Principal, you’ll know right away…”
As soon as he finished speaking, he suddenly let out a sigh.
At that moment.
In the academy square, the clown thugs pressed the group of four to the ground and tied them up.
Cecil and the others looked ferocious and tried to resist and struggle several times, but it was in vain.
The opponent possessed spiritual magic, which instantly shook their consciousness.
As a result, they couldn’t even cast magic and immediately lost the battle!
The clown leader didn’t look at them, but stared upstairs and said hoarsely,
“The two up there, are you almost ready to come out? Your companions have all been captured!”
Cecil was taken aback as he didn’t expect those two to be found out.
As for Triya and the captured teachers and students, they were surprised, because apart from the four-member group of the student council, there should be no other people with rescue ability in the academy.
“Okay, well, didn’t think you’d see us, but credit is due where it’s due. However, I have to clarify something to you.”
Licinius leaned out from the broken window and pointed to the ridiculous quartet below,
“We are not with them; I’m not nearly as dumb.”
Triya said blankly with tears all over her face.
When he showed his handsome face, everyone was first shocked, then disappointed.
The fire of hope that had been reignited was suddenly extinguished.
Because Licinius is a well-known playboy in the academy, the leader of one of the few aristocratic factions, coupled with his ignorance and cynical attitude, his popularity is extremely poor.
In addition, the biggest label on him is lustful.
On Noren’s first day of school, Licinius was asked about his usual hobbies.
He said: “I usually like to read books, and I also like to look at black silk.”
When everyone’s faces were full of question marks, he explained again,
“Of course, I’m joking.”
When people laughed, relieved, he added, “How can I possibly like reading books?”
What Licinius does most on weekdays is to often organise some activities such as dance parties, and invite beautiful teachers and female students in the academy to dance in black silk and high-heeled shoes.
Relying on this kind of playboy to save them? You gotta be joking!
Cecil and the others were named and humiliated, their faces suddenly flushed, and they roared,
“Licinius! Why don’t you let Noren do her thing! Everyone is a classmate, Triya has helped you, are you just going to sit on the sidelines? Is this the so-called nobles’ elegance? Noren! Do you only accept money?”
In the academy, if Licinius doesn’t fit in because of being a dandy young master.
Then Noren doesn’t fit in because of her power. She has excessive power beyond all of them, and naturally, this attracted their jealousy.
The most believed rumour about her is that she follows Licinius for money.
Noren stood beside her young master and said with a blank face, “I’m sorry, I refuse. In this case, if I make a rash move, not to mention not knowing if I can save you, my young master will also be in danger.”
Everyone looked desperate. They remembered that there was a fourth-order warlock in the academy, and they felt that they could be rescued.
But listening to the other party say that, her attitude is already obvious.
In Noren’s eyes, Licinius’s safety is more important than all of them.
At that moment, the clown thugs immediately took up their weapons,
“Brothers come on! Catch them!”
The clown leader roared and stopped them.
Seeing the girl upstairs, his body tensed up.
Obviously, he felt the strength of the girl, and it’s unfathomable!
“Yo, it seems that this brother is very smart.”
Licinius smiled slightly, raised his hand and wrapped it around Noren’s small shoulder with a slight smile.
“The girl next to me is a fourth-order warlock. If you guys hit me, you should know how it ends.”
Noren glanced at the hand he put on her shoulder and said nothing.
A trace of fear flashed in the eyes of the clown leader, and he insisted,
“So? What if she’s fourth-order? If you dare to act rashly, we will kill everyone here!”
Everyone once again displayed a look of fear.
“Ah, I believe you can do it.”
Licinius was condescending. He suddenly said,
“But you said just now that you want 100,000 gold coins?”
The clown leader said hoarsely,
“One 100,000 gold coins and 2 bloody dragons. If we can’t get the money, we will kill everyone present and turn this academy into ash!”
Magic was poured into his voice, and it rolled back and forth across the sky.
Headmaster Bann looked terrified.
100,000 gold coins is already an astronomical figure, where would they get 2 bloody dragons?!
It’s a magical beast that had been tamed by a warlock and had the ability to fly. It could soar extremely fast in the air. Now it has become a military mount and a great killing weapon in aerial combat.
Only a few exist in the entirety of the Brentania Empire.
This group of thugs are really ambitious!
Major Hayden frowned, looked down at his pocket watch, and murmured in his heart.
Why hasn’t that one moved yet?
At this moment, there was a burst of mocking laughter in the academy.
Licinius laughed so hard that he almost burst into tears.
The clown leader felt insulted and asked, “What are you laughing at?”
Licinius wiped his tears and said with a somewhat helpless tone, “I just praised you for being smart, how did you become so stupid so quickly? 100,000 gold coins? 2 bloody dragons? What the hell are you thinking? Have you seen the people you’re holding? They’re not worth that much!”
“It’s wartime. Do you think the Brentania Empire will agree to your terms and use the funds originally invested in the military to save these few civilians?”
He smiled and said, “Do you think they are worthy?”
The clown thugs were stunned on the spot.
Licinius looked at the people who were squatting on the ground like quails and called them one by one.
“Lion, your father’s gambling debts haven’t been paid off, right? Didn’t you send your sister to a noble house to be a maid last month? Well, I remember your sister’s legs are pretty good, she must look good in black silk.”
“And Fanny, don’t think about which aristocrat to hang out with all day long. From our aesthetic point of view, we don’t like short-legged mice. Your mother is not bad. Would you like to recommend us to her?”
“As for Triya, you’ve been eating brown bread for three months. Do you want to come to my house for dinner at night? You must look so beautiful dancing in black silk. Don’t pay attention to Cecil. What future does he have?”
Everyone who was named by him showed expressions of anger and shame.
Because their dignity has been trampled underfoot.
Triya pursed her lips, her eyes hazy with tears.
The clown thugs were stunned, they realised they had made a huge mistake!
They kidnapped a group of civilians!
At this moment, more and more people gathered outside the academy, and without exception, they were the parents of these captives.
They know who they are.
The state will not pay to redeem those children.
But if they were forcibly rescued, would no one be injured or killed?
“It’s just a bunch of poor ghosts. What will you get for the ransom? You might as well kill them all.”
Licinius sneered and said,
“Looking at the entire academy, even the whole city. The only one worth 100,000 gold coins and two bloody dragons is actually just one person.”
The clown leader asked subconsciously, “Who?”
“Far in the sky, yet so close. Right in front of you.”
Licinius pointed to himself and smiled, “Me.”
The clown leader’s pupils suddenly shrank.
“What’s the use of kidnapping a group of lowly commoners? This young master is the one worthy of your kidnapping! Have you heard of the Valerius family? That’s the richest family in the capital!”
Licinius crossed his arms and said proudly, “I, Valerius Licinius! You left this young master untied, yet you went to tie up these untouchable idiots? I think you are insulting me!”
Clown leader: “…”
“They’re just a bunch of useless garbage, just throw them away. You catch me, let alone 100,000 gold coins, even if it’s 200,000 gold coins, my father won’t frown. For I am a noble.”
Licinius paused, “So, do you want to trade us?”
