The Duke’s Adopted Daughter Version 2.0
The Truth About the Arcan Plant
e killed almost all of them. By killing, it means we ate them. But unfortunately, some were able to flee, and my other pack is hunting them down. ”
”Oh, don be angry. You will be– ”
Before the guard could finish, another aura stabbed his abdomen and made him vomit blood.
”Argh! You f****n mage! ”
”Im sorry to interrupt, but we are not here to chit-chat, ” Louise replied lazily.
”Heh! Fine. ”
The guard licked his lips as he stared intently at the girl, ”You smell good. ”
Then, he jumped from the ground and turned into a beast, and the other wolf also joined him.
”Step back. ”
Gerald followed her instruction and hid behind a tree.
The girl also jumped from the ground as she pulled a sword made from her aura and slashed at the two beasts.
The other wolf turned in half while the first one escaped the attack slightly as he landed on the ground, bleeding.
Gerald heard Louise speak in a cold tone.
”Tough, aren you. ”
She walked towards the wolf on the ground. Then Gerald saw the wolf struggle as Louise raised the sword and slashed it. The blood spurt from its body as it struggled for its life before lying lifeless.
Louise then turned towards him.
”Lets go. ”
”O-Okay, ” Gerald recovered from his shock as he alternately looked at Louise and the dead monster.
”Oh, before I forgot. ”
Gerald saw the girl taking something from the beasts body after the worms of the forest consumed them. It was a round-looking object with a translucent surface—the beasts core.
She casually throws it at him while picking the other one.
”This is? ”
”A Core. ”
”I know that this is a core, but why are you giving this to me? ”
”Im not giving it to you. Take it as my advance payment. ”
”I told you I don give free service. And I wouldn say I like receiving something without compensation. I might be needing something from you in the future that may equate to the amount of that core. ”
They continued with their walk and arrived at the place where the Duke and his guards encountered those terrifying wolves. The stench of blood permitted the air, and he saw that most of the skeletons were still wearing armors. Gerald clenched his fist.
The Duke followed the voice. It was from Erickson, the captain of his guard.
He ran towards him and immediately checked his well-being. He noticed a significant claw mark on his chest.
e sorry for not being able to protect you, ” he spoke with some difficulty as he tried his best to utter the words.
”Don talk. You will be fine, ” Gerald replied.
”P-Please run. At least you have to survive. ”
Erickson fainted after he spoke those words.
”What a loyal guard. ”
He heard Louise speak from behind.
She handed him some potions and allowed him to take good care of the remaining guards.
”I would advise that we leave this forest the soonest possible time, ” the girl spoke as she raised her head and stared at the surrounding trees, ”These beasts were just warm-up. You don want to encounter something that might wipe your whole guards. I only promised to protect you; Im not responsible for them. ”
”I don have any reason to stay here any longer. So I wish to leave. ”
The Duke saw her raise her hand, and a teleportation scroll floated from it before casually ripping it. Gerald saw a bluish light cover him and his remaining troops before totally blinding his sights.
