Chapter 290[T… Teckil?]
Eveam muttered unintentionally, looking at the figure riding on the shoulders of the Green Giant standing in front of her eyes .[Hellossu . I was ssssomehow able to return . ]
Eveam was frozen, she could not believe what was happening in front of her . In front of her blatant shock, Teckil looked onward while laughing and showing his pearly white teeth .[Te-Teckil… is that really… you?] [I am fine your Majesssty . You ssseem to be holding on well ne!?]
Those words, it proves this was no ghost .[B-but why…] [I’m really sssorry, but first we should take care of that perssson . ]
Teckil stared at the person who was floating in the sky .
The huge wings extended from his back, by looking at him one would know that he belonged to the [Demon Evila] .
He had brown skin and a small horn protruding from his forehead . Along with his sharp ears, any of these characteristics could be judged to belong to the [Demon Evila] .
But the strangest characteristic was its eyes . Which had no pupils, no light seemed to be in them .
Truly “inhuman . ”
Looking below him in disdain, the man suddenly spread his arms towards Eveam .
A mass of crimson flames produced, who’s target was all too obvious .[He is about to throw the spell!]
Marione screamed as soon as he noticed the man’s behavior .
Everyone started to prepare to receive the attack .[Itssss fine yo . ] [… Teckil?]
When Teckil spoke such strange words, not only Eveam, but also the soldiers who heard them went [Eh?] .
Turning towards Eveam, Teckil smiled .[Just becaussse I am here doesss not mean that I came back alone . I came back with an assistant . ] [Aa-assistant?]
The moment Eveam replied, a huge figure came falling from the sky towards the [Demon Evila] .
Noticing something odd, the [Devil Evila] focused on the falling figure .
With utmost care, the devil sent the crimson flames towards this new threat .
Surprisingly, when it met with the shadow, the flames which held enormous destructive power scattered and vanished .
As if confirming the target’s position, the shadow started to plunge directly toward the [Devil Evila] . Leaving no chance for it to escape .
The figure hit its target in the chest, forcing the [Devil Evila] to plummet along with the figure, creating a small crater in the ground .
Everyone’s eyes focused to the now clear details of the man who fell from the sky .[…… Ju-Judom!?]
With Eveam’s shout, everyone was finally able to know who the person was .[Yo, its been a while Maou-chan . ]
He was the Guild Master of [Victorias] . He is Judom Lankers, he was the man who had helped the country through its tough time as a substitute for King Victorias a while ago .[Surround the Enemy!!]
Aquinas roars from his spot .
The soldiers immediately moved after receiving their instructions . In merely seconds Judom was surrounded .
With Judom’s tremendous blow attacking the devil’s chest, it became disfigured and was clearly caved in . It seemed even tough for the creature to stand .
Strangely enough, his deadpan expression remained the same .
Could it be that it could not even feel the pain?
Aquinas approached the devil warily, and when he looked down at the devil he narrowed his eyes slightly .
Slowly, Aquinas pulls out his blade, and then…
His neck was beheaded .
If it was normal, then blood should have splashed on a huge scale .
However, nothing squirted from the cut on his neck .
Rather, the body of the man gradually collapsed into sand .[… . As expected . ]
Aquinas as if understanding the situation, appeared thoughtful but those surrounding him were perplexed .
Paying no heed to others, Aquinas stowed his sword once more and turned towards Judom .[It’s been a while… Judom, yo . ] [Ah, last time was at the meeting . ]
They exchanged eye contact .
In the meantime, there were signs of the person who was previously in the sky but it was something else entirely .
It was a huge bird .
Most of the people around them were surprised but none of them panicked .
It seemed as if they knew who the brid belonged to .
The bird was produced through magic by the [Demon Evila] Teckil .[The two of you, how terrible of you to leave me behind!]
And moreover, everyone was looking perplexedly at the little girl who was on the back of that bird .[Sssory about that, but I figured that Princesss Fara would be much sssafer on the bird than with usss . ] [I was extremely surprised as soon as the both of you jumped from this child . ] [Sorry about that Fara, you can scold us later . Right now, I hope you can understand the situation… you can right]
Judom continued to stare at Aquinas .[That’s right . For now, let’s concentrate on the [Devil Evila], we can slowly speak about this later . ]
Aquinas also said so and returned to his original expression after taking a glance behind the bird .[Apparently, the attack just a while ago seemed to only be a greeting . The real thing is still coming .
Your majesty, please contact the Beast King, we need to hold a meeting . ] [A, aa, that’s right . I understand . ]
Eveam also breathed out and thought that it was useless to have an expression which showed her being upset and immediately steeled her face .[Everyone! The Predecessor Demon Lord being Evil has been confirmed! The war shall formally begin! We shall not bow down to such a person!]
Slowly, the soldier’s morale rose due to the cry of Eveam .[However, the attack has stopped for now . But this does not mean that it won’t happen again! I want you to be wary of your surroundings! If you find something suspicious immediately report it!]
The soldiers all replied with a resounding [Yes!] unitedly and headed back .
Eveam turned her gaze towards Teckil .[I have something to say before you tell me about the past events . ] [What might it be?] [……Good job, you have returned safely, and thank you . ] [Ehh; please don’t sssay ssuch a thing to me your majesty . It feels weirdly ticklish .
I will tell you all about the reasssson why the two of them are here and what I had been doing for ssso long .
But, there is something I must say first . ]
The moment Teckil got the shoulder of the Green Giant, the giant crumbled and turned into liquid before getting absorbed by the earth .
The bird quickly followed suit .[Teckil scissor has returned, your majesty . ] [Umu, we were waiting . ]
Eveam cheeks relaxed joyfully .
Hiiro kept silent thought the whole scene from when Avoros declared war right until the end of battle .
Since a helper had appeared amid battle .
There were two people who looked familiar to him .
One was Judom Lankers .
Hiiro had met him once during the meeting .
Although it was only two or three words, he had a strong impression of the huge man .
The other was Teckil Scissor .
He was acquainted with him .
And also travelled with him for a while .
During that time, there were two other people: Arnold and Muir .
But they did not know that Teckil was one of the [Demon Evila] . And did not even know his real name .
At that time, Teckil had changed his identity to that of a beast man .
But it was still seen through by Hiiro’s word magic [Peep] .
Why he had changed his identity and why he was lying was unknown, but Hiiro was surprised when he learned of his identity .
Of course, Teckil was quite confident in his disguise, but even he was surprised when he heard the words of Hiiro and began doubting his disguise ability . He asked Hiiro to keep silent about his identity .
Teckil had no intention of doing something to Hiiro when he heard bout it . Although he could not find out Teckil’s purpose, he was still allowed to go as he had promised that he would not bring harm to anyone .
Certainly, as Teckil said, there was no harm because of his existence at that time . Although the two had parted nicely, he had not seen him since then . Surprised to see him so suddenly, and in such a place, Hiiro began wondering what Teckil might be doing .
Hiiro knew that Teckil belonged to
when he saw his status, but he was wondering why
he was not able to find his existence even though he had been in [Demon Country] for so
At the time, Hiiro had thought that Teckil might had simply died, but he felt that he was alive .
Then there was the other one, Fara who was about the same height as that of Muir .
Hiiro did not know who she was yet, but he wondered what Judom and Fara had come here for… .
At that time, Judom fleetingly glanced at Hiiro and suddenly smiled . As if he was saying: [See ya later . ]
Despite this heartwarming gesture, Hiiro received a more mysterious feeling .
Soon after, Teckil came near Hiiro .[Its been a while Hiiro-kun . ] [It really has been, Pseudonym-bastard] [Ugh… I really wissssh that you ssstop mentioning that time . You really can’t exssspect me to give away my real name right . . ?]
I remembered that he had asked me to call him Tenii at that time .
Of course, Hiiro knew his real name but just spoke with sarcasm laced in his words since he ffelt nostalgic about those times with the pseudonym-bastard and couldn’t help but say it out loud .[Actually nee, Hiiro-kun I have a ssstory that I wisssh to tell you about . ] [… . To me?] [Thatsss right . I think that the majesssty will ssson have a meeting and I hope that you can attend it in the near future . ]
Frankly Hiiro felt that it was troublesome .
However, now Hiiro himself had a grudge with
he might as well join and listen in on the potentially valuable information .[All right . ] [Seriously! Ahaha, thatsss good!]
As usual, Teckil laughed wryly with friendly humor while Hiiro just shrugged his shoulders .
Hiiro looked at the sun hanging in the sky
(It looks like things will get busier in the future)
Originally Hiiro did not want to participate in the war .
who was currently engaging the war in particular had a connection with Noah Black .
(I will make sure that you regret having picked a fight with me . )
With a strong determination in mid, Hiiro started to walk behind Teckil .
