The Lazy Swordmaster - Chapter 213. Weird Capable People (3)
Chapter 213. Weird Capable People (3)
“Give it to me for a second.”
On behalf of Nara, who only tilted his head because he couldn’t read the handwriting of this world, Riley took the newspaper he was holding and began to check its contents.
As Riley stared at the newspaper with his brows narrowed, Sera and Nara, leaning next to Riley, muttered as they looked at the woman in the newspaper who was smiling brightly and waving her hand.
“Don’t tell me, this person?”
“Is this… the saintess named Helena?”
Seeing her smiling brightly amid the cheers of many people, Riley responded by returning the newspaper he was holding to Nara as if disgusted.
“Yeah, that’s right.”
Sera and Nara swallowed their gulps at Riley’s bloody expression and shut their mouths as if it would be better for them to remain silent for now.
In a place she didn’t know, she created a terrible situation that she didn’t know… After he died, she set up a memorial stone and was living a good life.
Riley muttered, “If I had known earlier that things were going this way, I would have come and caused a stir.”
In Riley’s mind, he wanted to show up right now and go after Helena, but it was clearly not a very efficient method.
Even when I was still alive here, she was so meticulous that I didn’t find out about her work. There must be dozens of places where she dug holes to escape… If I approach her haphazardly, there is a high chance I will miss her.
The reason why the seven parts were brought here was also to hold her firmly and bury her past sins.
I can’t help but smile, thinking that this body has suffered.
Riley recalled the words muttered by his now-friend Abyss before coming over here. He clenched his palms and began to widen his senses.
First of all, mana… Find mana.
Riley began to look for mana that was being used or absorbed by someone, not the mana that just existed there like nature. He focused his consciousness with his eyes closed.
I may not be as good as Abyss, but I can easily find them if they use the same amount of mana as Andal or Nainiae.
Riley, a warrior who had played an active role here in his previous life, recalled that the people here weren’t yet able to use mana. And so, he looked for traces of mana that Andal or Nainiae might have used.
It’s been a while since I got here… Whether it’s Andal or Nainiae, someone must have at least used interpreting magic.
On the other hand, he was concerned about the parts that had been scattered without knowledge of this world, but first of all, he had to find the parts that could use magic.
Come to think of it, being able to use magic is a huge advantage in this world. Not only quick interpretation but also telekinesis, search, stealth, etc… It can be used in many ways.
A single gesture would suffice to light a fire, no matter how far away, one teleportation would get you to your desired destination, and if there was information you wanted, it would be solved in an instant by using the magic of the memory system.
As Mi-rae returned to the living room from the kitchen with three glasses of water on the tray, Riley opened his eyes and muttered.
“…is it done?”
When Ian entered the barrier and asked, Nainiae, who had her hand on Lee Han-seong’s head, turned her head slightly and answered.
When Nainiae released her hand from Lee Han-seong’s head, he fell backward like a doll with a broken thread and started snoring.
“I think they are the people who stopped the ‘purple people’ in this world from committing crimes.”
Nainiae continued with a serious look, explaining who the men in suits were.
“These people we encounter are simply doing what they’re supposed to do, but the people they’re serving… It seems clear that there is something hidden in the top line.”
Nainiae nodded and told them the information she got from the man’s memories.
“The area near young master’s memorial stone was being watched. Long… before we came over here.”
At Nainiae’s story, Ian and Priesia frowned and tilted their heads.
“The area near the memorial stone was being watched?”
“I don’t know about that in detail, but…”
Nainiae knelt on one knee for a moment to forge their traces, and set up a few complicated magic circles on the ground, then got up.
“For now, while erasing our traces, I will set a trap to identify those who are looking for us.”
Nainiae even broke the surveillance camera that was filming the memorial from the outside of the barrier by shaking her wrist lightly. Finally, she checked the magic circle she had installed and prepared for teleportation.
“Are we going right away?”
“We can’t appear outside the barrier right now.”
To explain where they’re teleporting right now, Nainiae added.
“I looked through this man’s memories, it seems that there are parts that have visited young master’s memorial before us.”
In Lee Han-seong’s memory, the video of the surveillance camera he saw before they came here showed three people guarding a girl holding a bouquet.
“That’s good news.”
“Who were them?”
Ian nodded, and Priesia asked who the three were.
“I don’t know.”
The problem was that the image quality of the video the man saw was blurry. It was also difficult to determine because the group, who had arrived in front of the memorial before them, changed their clothes to blend in with the crowd.
“Based on the atmosphere, I think Miss Sera was there.”
There were four women in the group who came over here…
The woman she saw in the video was not short, so Iril was automatically excluded. Nainiae and Priesia were here, so there was a high probability that the woman who appeared in the video would be Sera.
“I think there were two other people, but I don’t know about the other two.”
In the video, Nainiae noticed Sera’s outfit had been changed and even realized that at least one among the two people next to her had knowledge of this world.
If it’s not young master, it must be Abyss. Or… both.
Nainiae, who thought she had gotten quite a lot of harvest from the memory of the man in a suit, used the teleport she had been preparing and glanced at the barrier just before disappearing.
“For now, we will move.”
In addition to what happened at the memorial, after the end of a certain warrior and the demon king… Nainiae, who had been keeping information about what had happened in this world for a year, also disappeared with her group.
The barrier disappeared, and the hypnotic magic ran out of its effect.
As if waking up from a good night’s sleep, Lee Han-seong stretched out and realized that he was in front of the memorial stone of a certain warrior when he opened his eyes. He had a blank look on his face.
“Why am I here?”
Lee Han-seong rubbed his sleepy eyes and messed up his hair once as he didn’t know what was going on, and grumbled.
“Well, I have to work overtime every day, so even if I get narcolepsy… There’s nothing strange about it.”
Abyss, who seemed to kill time while leaning against the wall of the alley, turned his head slightly and muttered.
Before they knew it, the awkwardness between them was reduced a lot.
Iril, who was sitting next to him, tilted her head as he was saying something and asked. Abyss stood up and answered.
“One of the parts… Either Riley or Nainiae used mana. Although the distance is quite far, we’ll have to chase it anyway.”
As Abyss rose from his seat and answered, Andal, who was sleeping drooling on his shoulder, floundered over the floor.
“Uh-huh, huh? What?!”
Iril, who almost burst into laughter at Andal’s startled look as he floundered over the floor, secretly turned her head and snuggled.
“You had enough hibernation, didn’t you?”
“Then, let’s get going now.”
When the person who was responsible for making him hibernate told them to move, Andal wiped the saliva dripping down his chin with his sleeve and looked at Iril as if something was suspicious.
“We, we have to move. Abyss…”
“Since when did you two start talking casually?”
As Iril blurred out the end of her words and avoided Andal’s eyes, Abyss took a step forward and answered instead.
“We became close while you were hibernating. We can discuss that later. The first thing we need to do is move quickly.”
Perhaps he didn’t like the way Abyss spoke in a commanding tone to him, Andal began to grind his teeth with a tendon protruding from his forehead.
“D*mn demon king… I give orders! Do you understand?”
“From here to the north, I sensed mana’s flow about 15 minutes away. We have to go there.”.
Andal, who was swearing at Abyss’s words, also seemed to have grasped the situation. He turned his head to where he was pointing and concentrated his consciousness.
Andal, who closed his eyes and sensed the traces of mana used there in more detail, murmured as if he had guessed who used mana there.
“It’s not Riley, it’s Nainiae.”
“Let’s go there at once, can you do that?”
When Abyss asked him a question as if teasingly, Andal replied with a snorting.
“Heh! Who do you think I am?”
Andal, who shrugged as if he could move right now, added that he was ready to teleport straight there right away.
Abyss nodded in awe and said one more thing.
“Since we need to avoid confusion, I think we better move with the invisibility magic on.”
“That’s why, who do you think I am?”
Andal, who once again asked who he thought he was, flicked his fingers as if he had already prepared for that. Then their bodies including himself had changed to translucent.
Andal put a lot of strength on his shoulders as if it was okay to praise him a little more, and Iril, who was looking at the two in turn, hurriedly turned her head and held back her laughter.
I feel like I was afraid for nothing.
Recalling Inaril’s words, Iril acknowledged her lesson: ‘The scariest thing maybe people.’
Devil and dragon.
They’re much more honest than humans. They acted in the direction they thought their feelings were right without any other feelings… It turned out they weren’t as terrifying as Iril thought.
Like the power these two show, they’re still a little scary, though.
Still, if they were on her side, she thought there would be nothing more reassuring.
“Iril, are you ready?”
Abyss looked at Iril, who was still sitting, and reached out to her. She stopped holding back her laughter and grabbed his hand.
“Anyway, if we teleport over there.”
Abyss, who lifted Iril, spoke to her. “There’s a lot of work you have to do.”
Andal used teleportation and blue light began to emanate from the feet of the three of them.
“Work I have to do?”
Iril asked back while teleporting and Abyss nodded and replied.
“You’ll be in charge of the hidden card in the seven parts.”
