The Destruction of A Certain Organization
(Thank you for reading at bayabuscotranslation.com)
In a corner of a dim room, a man controlled his breath, and was hiding.
He didn’t intend to escape in this way.
It was to take the opportunity to strike back.
He wasn’t sure how many companions still remained.
But, it would be their victory if one of them survived and completed the ritual,
Rather, the reason why they were raided today, he was probably more concerned that this was a trial given by his God.
In other words, if they overcame this trial, their King would rule the world this time.
When he thought about it, his motivation was also swelled up.
But, at that time…
As he heard the footsteps just around the corner, the sound stopped.
His body naturally became stiff, while he gathered strength.
“Hmm… even if I look for this long, I can’t find anyone else. Was it all there? There were eight people in total. These people are obviously suspicious. What on earth were they doing? …Well, I already finished breaking stuff, there will be no problems, regardless of their plans. Now, what to do next? Should I search another place, just in case? Or should I just go home…?” (??)
However, when it was almost like that, the shadow turned it’s heel.
Two more steps… No, the man would be noticed if it approached one more step, but… the man loosened his mouth as if his God was on his side.
Just like that, the footsteps resumed for another step.
He grasped the sight of the unprotected back, which was going to leave, with an upward twitch of his mouth.
It had double meaning because his wish was fulfilled.
The man knew from the shadow… that it was a woman.
He saw her more than a decade ago… No, he encountered her.
And the result of that time was also similar to today.
However, there was one clear difference between that time and today.
At that time, there was nothing the man could do, other than running away, but it was possible to kill that woman today.
He could fulfill the revenge he swore at that time. Moreover, the resurrection of their God would also come true.
Whether today was a fine day, the man jumped at her back at once, while overwhelmed with joy.
With the will of bringing certain death, he protruded the dagger held in hand…
“Die, Black-Silver…” (Man)
“…What a fool. There is no way I can be killed when you leak that much of bloodlust, you know?” (Woman)
He didn’t know what happened at that moment.
He didn’t feel anything from the lower part of his body, when he noticed it, and the woman had, somehow, looked upside-down.
No, in the first place, rather than thinking why she was upside-down or why he directly faced the woman… he finally understood, when looking at her freezing glance.
It was he who was sliced in two.
“…You, Black-Silver War Princess…!” (Man)
Nevertheless, he glared at her until the end.
Immediately afterwards, something ran perpendicular to his body, and the man’s consciousness fell into the eternal darkness.
Camilla let out a sigh with an indescribable expression before the scenery of the fallen man who was sliced into two and the spreading red-black liquid around.
To be honest, the final blow wasn’t necessary.
It was just a matter of course, since the man, who was already in that state, couldn’t be saved, no matter how much she looked at it.
However, she heard that deplorable name after a long absence, so it was impossible to leave it alone.
“Seriously… even if I have to say it to myself, it was unsightly.” (Camilla)
She was disgusted at herself, and she let out a sigh again.
Black-Silver War Princess was a name given by the enemy to Camilla, who was actively involved in the war with the Demons more than a decade ago.
Perhaps the reason was the color of her hair and the silver color, which was her choice for the armor.
Well, it wasn’t unusual… in fact, it was common.
The nickname given by the enemies who felt threatened, and the risk were shared among the Demons.
Giving nickname was something normally done, and it was normal not to know the real name of the enemies.
More importantly, since her real name was not known, an easy-to-know name was given.
And the naming rule was fundamentally based on the characteristic of the opponent.
Especially the color of her hair, which was almost unconditionally conspicuous.
It was easy to understand the degree of the danger because the color of the hair was said to represent that person’s talent.
There were various hair colors, and each of them referred the direction they were good at, and black color was treated as an exception amongst them.
It was said that it had talent in all aspects.
Actually, it wasn’t a myth.
At least for Camilla, it was a truth based on the appropriate research results, which had been established.
If it was a skill that Camilla could learn, there was a possibility she would learn it, and to add more to that explanation, she required one hour to learn the skill.
Because of that, Camilla was aiming for the top… and with Soma’s talent, it made her convinced once more.
It seemed that she displayed her superiority and conduct, but Soma, who had once been treated as a genius, was partly the cause of her conviction.
Well, it also could be said that he had become her rival right now.
Otherwise, there was a possibility that he would surely be treated better.
The reason why Soma didn’t receive the treatment was not only because he was simply told that he had no talent. The other reason was he would’ve been given a grandiose treatment if he wasn’t treated badly.
Anyhow, that name was a part of Camilla’s dark past.
When she thought how inexperienced she was, the things that she didn’t want to remember resurfaced again.
That was why she wanted to eliminate them even one minute faster.
Now, let’s return to the main subject.
“Well, then… this side is over, I guess?” (Camilla)
Since she was acting to easily deal with the enemy earlier, she didn’t really notice this.
She roughly searched, but since she didn’t feel any presence, every enemy must’ve already been annihilated.
Although it was worrisome with what these people were planning in this place, their plan had definitely been delayed.
There was no need to worry because they were already crushed, but… more importantly, this wasn’t over yet.
It was also the most important matter, she needed to rejoin Soma, who went to rescue Lina and Aina.
“With this, there is no need for diversion tactic, right?” (Camilla)
Yes, originally they intended to create a diversion and that was why Camilla separated from Soma.
Camilla would rummage around, while Soma went to rescue Lina and Aina.
It was planned for Camilla to evacuate or escape whenever it was appropriate, but… she noticed when she tried to uncover the situation.
Camilla annihilated the enemies without withdrawing at all, but… more importantly, she could feel a strong force that made her body shiver from Soma’s direction.
That was how she felt, even though they were separated a good distance away.
Perhaps, if Camilla compared every opponent here to the one in that direction, they were still easy to be dealt with.
“Anyhow, was it a blunder? If it is poorly done…” (Camilla)
Although it was jokingly said, Camilla remembered this feeling.
It was the Demon Heavenly General she had seen once.
She was defeated by them, but… what she felt that time seemed to be similar.
If it was Soma, she didn’t think that he would fall behind, but…
“…Tsk. Anyhow, I had no choice but to go, but… I might be able to do something.” (Camilla)
While reprimanding her shrinking heart, Camilla hurried to that place.
