She was sent by God - Chapter 118
An inexplicable silence dominated the office.
“Now… What did you say?” Agnes asked instead of Adrienne, who was making a stupid sound.
The man who had just proposed to her, proposed again with a very brazen face.
“If you want to go, marry me and go. If a family of yours is waiting anxiously, you won’t think it’s okay to die, right?”
“Would you want to die if your husband is waiting?”
Adrienne jumped. Her face flushed like an apple.
“And how can you propose to me like this?”
As soon as she finished, Niall took something out of his jacket pocket. Surprisingly, it was a handkerchief embroidered with the other person’s name when proposing. When she saw it, Agnes’ face turned strange? Handkerchiefs were usually prepared by women.
“I was going to give it to you, but that’s good.”
“Oh, no, I mean, Um. W, why? Are you really proposing to me?”
Niall raised one eyebrow at her question.
“Why? Didn’t I tell you before? I like you.”
“Me? Did you mean it? Well, maybe you’re after my money!”
Adrienne was quickly bitten back in the hip. Niall looked at Adrienne proudly, as if she were being ridiculous.
“Didn’t you check the ledgers I gave you?”
“Miss Adrienne’s money goes into each hospital, and all she has left is a rat’s tail. Didn’t you give the poor people every time you see one.”
“Oh, I did. Oh my God.”
She blinked innocently. Niall didn’t miss the opportunity. He snatched Adrienne’s wrist quickly and wound his handkerchief around it.
“You can return this handkerchief when you get back.”
“Don’t make me a widower, but come back alive.”
Adrienne fiddled with a red face and a handkerchief tied to her wrist. There was a strange silence between them. Agnes looked at them alternately and spoke.
“When are you going to leave?”
“As soon as possible. In fact, I’m done packing.”
“Don’t you want to change your mind?”
Adrienne looked back at Niall for a moment and shook her head at once.
“All right. Do that.”
“Thank you, madam,”
“Now go out, both of you. Because you seem to have a lot to talk about.”
Niall first rose from his seat, bowed his head, and reached out to Adrienne.
She hesitated a little but immediately grabbed the hand.
“Well, at last, Niall has proposed to the herbalist, hasn’t he?”
When Beller heard the news belatedly, he smiled and said, Agnes glanced back as he walked along the wall.
“Do you know each other?”
“It would be strange if I didn’t know, the cold-hearted child Niall always packed food, clothes, and brought it to her day by day. I was worried because the woman was slow-witted, but I guess it worked out well.”
“Adrienne said she would go to the plague-stricken area and study the cure herself.”
“What? She’s going to such a place? Didn’t Niall propose to her?”
“That’s why he proposed.”
Adrienne showed quick action and finished all preparations two days after receiving the proposal. She was scheduled to leave at dawn tomorrow.
When Beller heard the story, he let out a sigh.
What if Adrienne finds a cure to the plague?
When both princes died because of the plague, Sebastian drew his sword.
Even if it’s a one in a thousand or a ten thousand chance, Adrienne finds a cure and the princes doesn’t die….
Her thoughts didn’t last long.
Beller suddenly stopped. Agnes, walking behind him, looked up and saw his back.
“Why did you stop?”
“Listen to me.”
Beller’s voice was unusually low. She couldn’t see his face, but she felt the seriousness in it.
“Turn around and run to the gate, lock the door and ring the bell immediately.
“What do you mean?”
Agnes looked around in astonishment. However, the winter wind only grazed the damaged branches, and the surroundings were calm.
“There’s nothing? and there was no contact from the line of defense.”
“Right now, you can’t see it because it’s too far away, but the air around, changes when the beast is near. And the fact that there is no warning on the line of defense…….”
His voice became lower.
“Maybe it’s a flying type of beast.”
“What do you mean, a flying beast? Isn’t it a very tricky thing to deal with?”
At Agnes’ worried question, Beller turned to her and made eye contact.
“Don’t worry about it. I’ll take care of it soon, so please go inside the castle first.”
He smiled and pushed Agnes’ back weakly.
“All right, I’ll send the soldiers, so wait a minute.”
Agnes, as he said, turned around and ran as fast as she could through the gate. She was out of breath and couldn’t speak.
“Oh, no. Close the gate and ring the bell. Beast appeared.”
“What? But I haven’t heard from the line of defense.”
“Sir Beller said it might be a flying beast.”
Then the knight’s face turned to contemplation. Without further questioning, he instructed them to close the gate immediately, and rang the bell. Soon after, the bell rang throughout the castle, and today it was heard exceptionally loud.
Upon hearing the news, Zoltan rushed in.
“Flying type of beast?”
“That’s what Lord Beller said.”
“Well, if it were a flying type, the line of defense would have been useless.” said Zoltan, sweeping his head roughly. After arranging his face, he led the knights out of the gate.
As she took a breath and walked down the hallway, a group of magicians, including Reika, appeared from afar.
“Archmage. What’s the matter? Now that a beast has appeared, it’s chaotic outside…….”
“A beast is not the only one who showed up.”
“What’s that supposed to mean?”
“A powerful being other than a beast is approaching this castle.”
There was not a smile on Reika’s face. The corners of Agnes’ mouth stiffened.
Are you talking about Eugene?
“I can’t tell you what it is yet, but if it appears, it won’t be enough for the Knights.”
“Is the magic on the wall not enough?”
“It’s no use if there’s a more powerful presence beyond that magic.”
It was such a powerful vibration that the axis of the castle shook. Agnes fell to the floor in a moment, unable to balance herself.
“Oh, what the hell?”
Reika reached out and helped her. Then she looked into the air with sharp eyes.
“Stay in a safe place. I’ll try my best to block it.”
Leaving only that, she led the other wizards to the gate. She was confused by what had happened in an instant.
First, as Reika said, she moved to the deepest part of the castle. Instead of Beller, Max stood by her side.
“I’ve only heard rumors about beasts invading Sutmar, this is beyond my imagination.”
“But still because of the magic that was carved into the line of defense, the beast invasion decreased.”
Agnes tried to pretend he was not nervous, but her palms were sweaty as she remembered what Reika had said.
Did the servants of God come again?
At that time, a sound of something breaking out the door and a man and a woman’s scream began to be heard after another.
At first, she thought she heard it wrong because it was too weak, but when Max pulled out his sword and put it on alert, she realized that it was not an illusion. The sound grew closer and closer. The door burst open at the height of her nervousness.
“Madam, avoid it!”
The knight could not finish his words. The sword that pierced his chest soon turned into a fountain of blood and disappeared. Max sprang out in front of Agnes. At the same time, one by one, the members of Elesh, who had been hiding somewhere to escort her, appeared.
Agnes realized that the situation was worse than she had expected. The only time she saw Elesh was when the assassins stormed into her bedroom.
The person who called her name was white from head to toe, and was an unrealistically beautiful woman. Perhaps if it wasn’t because of the blood all over her. She would mistake her for a cotton statue. She trudged toward Agnes with a bloody sword.
“You’re the contractor, aren’t you? Prove your worth with death.”
“Don’t come any closer.” cried Max, pointing a sword at her.
Not only that, but a member of the Elesh surrounded Agnes in a circle. The word “contractor” reminded me of Eugene.
“Wait, are you here for Eugene?”
She didn’t answer Agnes. Instead, she swung her sword at Max as if he had cleared the way. With a roar, the sword split the air. Max blocked the first sword, but failed to defend against the ensuing attack.
It was a moment’s work. The sword went halfway through his belly. A great pain that he had never felt before struck him like a wave.
As she pulled out the sword, blood burst out in all directions. She kicked Max with a straight face. Max, who bounced off with a thump, dropped his sword and lost consciousness.
When he fell, the other Knights of Elesh reflexively blocked Agnes.
Another fell down. The results were the same even if the two of them fought at once.
There are only four Elesh left.
She couldn’t breathe properly because of the tension. Before she knew it, Agnes’ hem was covered with blood.
