A man wearing noble garb, looking like he came out of a medieval movie, entered the arena; he looked like he was 190 CM in height.
A muscular body that can even be seen through the clothes he is wearing.
What stood out most about this man who had just entered the arena was his cold dead eyes.
The phrase, ’The eyes are the window of the soul ’ couldn ’t be more correct in talking about this man. Looking into the man ’s lifeless eyes, everyone could immediately think he was dead inside.
Looking into the eyes of the man who had just entered, Victor flashed a small smile:
”You can tell? ” Scathach displayed a small satisfied smile.
”Yeah. At first glance, it might appear that he is a man bored with everything, a dead man. But that couldn ’t be more incorrect…. ” Victor ’s eyes gleamed a little through the glasses he was wearing.
”Hahaha~. Foxes always know how to deceive someone, for these animals deceiving people is like second nature, that man… He ’s a fox. ” She laughed in amusement, looking pleased with Victor ’s opinion.
”… Is he strong? ” Violet asked.
”Yeah. Of course, he ’s strong, but the question you should be asking is, how strong is he? ” Scathach replied.
”… ” Violet looked at the man again, she seemed to be examining the man, ”I feel that my mother is stronger than him. ”
”Pfft… HAHAHAHAHA ” Scathach started laughing as if she heard the funniest joke in the world.
”… ” Violet looked at Scathach with an emotionless look.
”Girl, a woman who relies only on her powers isn ’t qualified enough to be called ’strong. ’ Do you know why? ” Scathach bared all her teeth as she laughed.
”… ” Violet waited for Scathach ’s following words.
”Because when someone takes that power from her, she will become useless… ”
”… This-. ” Violet wasn ’t able to argue anything against Scathach ’s words. After all, she also knew that her mother had never trained anything in her life other than her power. Is she strong? Yes, of course, she is, she has mastered the control of her power… But.
Without that power, she becomes useless… It ’s like a wizard that if he loses his magic, he will become an ordinary person.
And she didn ’t even bother to train the vampire ’s basic powers.
Scathach continues, this time in a teacher ’s tone of voice:
”Remember, A hunter must always have several weapons in his arsenal at his disposal. He must always have different ways to kill a creature stronger than himself. ”
”If you can ’t use your innate vampire powers, use martial arts and force close-range combat. If you can ’t use martial arts, get a weapon. If a weapon is not available, take a stone. Use the environment to your advantage, use everything you can to kill your enemy, that ’s what a hunter does, and that ’s what I taught Victor. ”
”… I get it. ” Violet took this as a learning lesson, she thought she should ask Victor to teach her something in the future.
”… ” Ruby, Lacus, Siena, and Eleonor didn ’t know how to react to these words, but as former students, they decided to take notes on Scathach ’s words, but they were wondering something internally; ’Why didn ’t she teach this to us too? ’
The four women unconsciously looked at Victor.
Feeling the eyes of the women on him, Victor, who was looking at the man who arrived at the center of the arena, said:
”Let ’s go back to watching. ”
”Before that…Give me my sister. ” Elizabeth demanded.
”Hmm? ” Victor looks back and sees Elizabeth standing behind him.
”It ’s not like I ’m holding her here. You can take her off if you want. ” Victor stopped petting Ophis and opened his arms.
”… ” Elizabeth walked in front of Victor, but before she could do anything, she took a pair of black gloves from her pocket.
Victor looked at the glove and saw several magic symbols engraved on the glove. ”Protection? ”
”Yes. ” She answered. Soon she started to move her hand towards Ophis.
”… ” Everyone looked at this scene with curious eyes.
When Elizabeth ’s hands touch Ophis ’s arm, the little girl suddenly opens her eyes.
Ophis ’s blood red eyes were emitting a dangerous light, she gripped Victor ’s clothes tighter and looked at her sister.
Elizabeth ’s body visibly trembled, but she remained calm and said, ”We need to go back, Ophis.
Elizabeth ’s body suddenly stopped moving as if paralyzed.
But this only lasted a few seconds, then she was able to regain control of her body:
”Ophis-. ” She smiled gently and tried to convince Ophis, but before she could say anything more:
”I will not go. ” The little girl refused to listen.
”Tsk. ” Violet was waiting for her to accept.
”Violet… ” Sasha and Ruby looked at Violet:
”Do you remember our conversation? ” Ruby says. She didn ’t like that either, but she ’s conscientious enough not to seek a fight with the king ’s family.
”Yeah. I won ’t do anything. ” Violet turned her face away.
”… ” The two did not trust her words.
Victor exhibited a small smile, he closed his arms and strokes Ophis ’ hair:
”Let her do what she wants. ”
Seeing Ophis ’s satisfied expression.
Elizabeth sighed and turned away from Ophis, she walked to a chair next to Eleonor and sat down.
”Countess Eleonor. ”
The two exchanged little greetings.
Soon the whole group looked towards the arena, which began to create a dome around the two individuals, and suddenly a golden scroll appeared floating in the middle of the dome.
”Count Niklaus Horseman, thank you so much for bringing the Countship for me today~. ”
”You are very confident. ” The man spoke in an emotionless tone.
”Of course I ’m confident; I ’m not my sister who would lose something so important to someone insignificant like you. ”
”I see… ” He looked at the audience with a bored look.
”… ” Victoria was a little annoyed internally, she wanted to tease him a little to try to learn a little more about the man ’s personality, but he didn ’t react as she expected.
He looked back at her, ”How are we going to decide this? A fight? A dance? A board game? If you choose a board game, I suggest chess… Oh but-. ”
He exhibited a small cold smile, ”Chess can be a difficult thing for you, considering you don ’t seem to have much intellectual capacity. ”
”… ” Victoria opened her eyes a little, she didn ’t expect this coming from someone like him, but she wasn ’t someone who would let this little insult disturb her emotions.
”I want a fight, something simple. With that, you will have no excuses if you lose… And we need to entertain this entire audience, right? A game of chess would be tedious. ” She smiled gently.
”A fight is fine with me. ” Niklaus agreed.
”How many rounds? How many competitors? And what are the rules? ” Niklaus cracked his neck a little.
”One round is enough. The rules are simple, we fight until the other side has lost their heart or gives up on their own. ”
As vampires, they are immortal, but it is not true immortality. If the vampire has their head completely destroyed, they will die, and if the vampire suffers an attack with their mortal weaknesses, they will die too.
Because of that, she proposed a rule: if the vampire loses their heart, they will lose the game. After all, this type of injury can be easily healed with vampire regeneration.
”I heard from a little bird that your twin sons are geniuses, put one of them to fight… Then, I will select a trusted warrior to fight him. ” She continued with a gentle smile on her face. It was quite clear that she had confidence in the warrior she had chosen.
”…What a coincidence… I also learned from a little bird that was a color very similar to yours that you had a child, and to my surprise, that child was an oriental vampire; I wonder if the Clan Fulger knows that. ” Niklaus flashed a cold little smile.
”… ” Victoria ’s eyes changed to blood red for a moment, and she took on a cold expression:
”Where are you going, Count Niklaus? ” Victoria didn ’t like it. She ’s pretty sure she hid her son ’s information from the fangs of these old vampires. They weren ’t supposed to know about her son.
”Use your son to fight. If you choose your child, I will accept these terms. ”
’That fox… ’ Victoria knew that if she didn ’t accept it, the next news the entire vampire world would know was that she had a child by a foreign vampire, and she knows that the first person who would knock on her door upon learning of this information would be her sister.
Normally this would not be a problem, but as her son was born with the lightning power she did not inherit, her sister will demand that her son be turned over to Clan Fulger.
’He cornered me. ’ She knew that if her son fought, the chance of him using his lightning powers was high.
”…You can give up, you know? ”
”… ” Victoria clenches her fist tightly, she can ’t give up. She ’s come too far to give up now!
”I accept… He will fight. ”
”I accept the terms. ” Niklaus looked at the parchment, and, seeing that everything was correct, he turned away.
”… ” Victoria watched the man ’s back for a long time, but soon she turned too and walked out of the arena; ’It ’s okay, my son inherited his father ’s talent, he can win without using lightning. ’
