Blacksmith of the Apocalypse

Chapter 429: Blood Sun: The Wave (2)

ce and for all?

No, he could accept it! They still had a chance. His gaze turned ruthless. Yes, there is still one last trump card. The old demon looked at the youngling at his side. He had to harden his heart, there was no other way from here on.

Suddenly, a bolt of lightning almost struck Puffles in the sky. The hero too only barely managed to dodge a lightning strike.

Seth looked up to the tower, only to see Culus stab Misto Pheles in the back. The mist demon was unable to scream, or even made a move as his body turned to particles and was sucked into the clouds above.

“Dodge!” Seth suddenly screamed. He immediately let go of the lyre and jumped aside himself. The lyre started floating beside him and changed its tune.

Having cautioned time and time again, the people in his immediate vicinity reacted by randomly charging away from the place they had just been standing at.

When he looked behind him, he saw at least three soldiers with a dagger in their hands and a driven look on their faces. Before he could do anything himself, someone else took action.

~Dont touch Mom! ~

The imugi jumped out from the pet space and hit the surrounding soldiers with a freezing wave The powerful ice magic he copied from Elza, froze everyone in place.

“Everyone, get over here!” Seth shouted with the , while Oz played a tune to further slow the enemy.

Ellie who was close by had also dodged the sneak attack. Before joining Seth she quickly commanded all her slimes to retreat, leaving the moat empty.

When the three stooges joined them, Seth brought out his Giants Rod and cast the Desert Storm. A terrifying wall of sand and wind surrounded the group, blocking all views.

“What are we going to do now?” Brock asked disturbed. Seeing the people of Akhaz suddenly betray them had rattled him quite a bit.

“Dont worry, I was not the only one with a bad premonition. Hubert already prepared an escape route.” Seth explained over hurriedly drawing a magic circle on the wall.

“What are you doing? Wont they get through this storm at some point?” Ellie asked also slightly panicked.

~ I will blast them if they do! ~ Tatzel proclaimed bravely.

“No worries, I have a plan,” he said.

In the next moment, everyone saw him drop a ball of glinting lights on the wall, in the middle of the formation.

Seth also knew how to be ruthless.

The crazed Culus saw his plan fail in a fit of rage. How were they supposed to get enough energy for the cloud furnace now?! The young demon was far from enough. But as expected he was much better than the ordinary citizens.

If only they could have gotten the other in one shot, the cloud furnace might have completely filled! With a full cloud furnace, he could have-

Shit! Even that useless slavemancer managed to barely dodge the strike! No! Things were not over yet. They could still catch them. Right, right, even if some escaped, they could fill the rest with the commoners.

Just three or four more could fill the cloud furnace by half. They could make up the rest with the people. Just a third of the populace and- The lord wouldnt agree to sacrifice more of the populace. Would he? Faced with death, he would agree.

Why would he even ask for permission? This was also about his life. Yes, he would-

Culus was caught up in his spiral of thoughts as and about to do some horrible irreparable things when he was interrupted by someone else doing horrible irreparable things.

The rumble of thunder and the roaring of beasts joined a third sound. The breaking of stones and grinding of sand. Huge cracks ran all across the city wall, as a part of it, enveloped in a storm of sand, stood up.

A giant of stone, mortar, and sand rose from the rubble of the city wall. Incredulous the demon watched the being enveloped in a mantle of sand jump off into the city, leaving a great hole in the upper half of the city wall.

Culus could only watch until his attention was caught by a terrifying screech. Looking to the sky, he saw in horror, that the giant nightmare centipede was charging at him. Was it coming for revenge?

However, as he was still staring at the beast, he felt a stabbing pain in his chest. Looking down, he was a bloody claw emerging from his chest.

“I never had a demon.” was the last thing he heard.

The old demon felt a pain in his neck for just a moment before the world went dark.
