Volume 3: Chapter 180 – Soar to Freedom (Elks Clan) (3/3)
The twin red moons of Ervi and Navi shone upon Pale’s eyelids.
The eyes that were closed by her brethren gradually opened as the moonlight goddess, Vardina, bestowed Pale her blessing.
But ironically the first thing those eyes saw was the hopeless sight of a comrade’s lifeless body.
“AHh, AHH!! Ryutanu!”
That nostalgic face was wet with blood, his body was covered in blood. How long had he been fighting? It was no longer even possible to distinguish whose blood it was that covered him anymore. Was it his or his foe’s, no one knew, but much of the blood had already dried.
Why was this cruel world so quick to take the things she cherished? Pale wondered, but no answer came.
“Ahh, too late, eh?” A friendly voice called out to Pale.
It was none other than Vine, who was fighting with that eastern swordsman just a while ago.
Her overly lax attitude caused Pale to glare at her.
“What, got a problem?”
But Vine just laughed as if she didn’t mind Pale’s glare.
“Unfortunately, there’s no point in glaring at me. The one who killed that was Webrus’ Dagger and you not making it in time was your own fault. As someone who offered you assistance, there shouldn’t be any reason for you to be glaring at me.”
Pale swallowed the emotions that sought to well up.
She didn’t think she was wrong, so she averted her gaze.
“Hmph. Well if you have enough self-control to keep yourself from yelling at others, then I guess that’s good. So, what are we going to do now?”
Around them was the river of blood and corpses that Vine, Berk, and the girls had made.
“You want vengeance, right?”
Within Pale burned the flames of hate. It was an emotion that demanded she consume everything or go insane. It was her first time feeling such emotions.
“The real enemy isn’t the Dagger of Webrus. Behind them is the Red King.”
Sophia wiped her eyes and then glared at Pale and Vine.
“The Red King…” Pale muttered in blank amazement.
“Heh…” Vine nodded.
“What’s your name?” Pale asked.
Pale Symphoria gazed at the darkness within her heart, and the abyss gazed right back at her. What reflected on those beautiful pair of jewels she had for eyes was her own body being burned by the black flames of vengeance.
“Sophia,” the girl replied.
“Ms. Sophia… I intend to exact vengeance on the Dagger of Webrus and the Red King. Would you like to come with me?”
Sophia wordlessly nodded, and so did the rest of the remnants of the Elks Clan.
“Shurei, Rue… There won’t be any combing back after this.”
“I-It’s better than abandoning our comrades!” Shurei replied
“From now on you’ll be following my orders. Mark my words, the Dagger of Webrus and the Red King will pay!”
The shadow of the Goddess of Vengeance appeared within Pale, and she was aware of it.
