The Duke’s Eldest Son Escaped to the Military - Chapter 149
The creature with the strange body that declared to be a part of the Imperial Family urged them to kneel.
The Red Seductress glared at it as she sharpened her nails and attacked the strange creature. However, her nails were easily bounced off by its body. It was as if she was dealing with some soft and elastic skin.
― Ugh! So creepy!
The Red Seductress looked at the creature in disgust as she swung her nails once again.
“Keuaaaaack! Hurts! It hurts! This lowly bitch!”
The monster, who was once a member of the Imperial Family, shrieked and screamed in pain as it trashed its huge body and made a mess of the Imperial Palace.
The monster had a body that was elastic and soft to the point that most mana swords would have a hard time cutting through it. It also had a huge body that could spray out poison and release poisonous gas. In other words, it was a monster that gathered all of the disgusting aspects of other monsters.
And it was a hard monster to handle even for the Red Seductress.
She, together with the starving ghosts rushed persistently and bit on its flesh. They were the starving ghosts from hell so they would never stop until their prey disappeared. Even if the starving ghosts melted from the poison and died from the poisonous gas they still continued to rush forward.
Hundreds of thousands of starving ghosts rushed and preyed on the body of the Imperial Family monster.
When the Red Seductress left the Imperial Family monster behind to go and find the Emperor, another monster appeared.
The monster broke through the basement, destroyed a part of the Imperial Palace before facing off against the vampires and the undead.
― A lot of monsters are springing up, huh?
Monsters appeared all over the place as they destroyed the Imperial Palace’s buildings.
Some of them were spewing out flames while some even had light emitting from their eyes. The problem was all of them were members of the Imperial Family.
― They’re worse than sewage.
The Red Seductress pinched her nose as she looked at the reeking Imperial Family.
However, it seemed like they weren’t the end of it all.
Numerous experiments popped out of the basement of the Imperial Palace. All of them were strange and bizarre. There was even a gigantic spider with a human head attached to it.
Their bodies were woven together with alchemy and were able to move with magic. They were the Imperial Family’s masterpieces. Creatures that were a mix of the wizards’ experiments, chimeras and alchemists’ homunculi. They should have already been dead. However, thanks to the magic that made their heart beat and their bodies stitched together with alchemy, they were able to show strength and magic in their every move.
― Vermins! Hurry up and move!
The Imperial Family monsters lashed their tails at the other monsters as if they were whipping them and forced them to move to their whims.
The Red Seductress’ expression hardened when she saw the monsters move according to their orders and fight against the Death Corps. She couldn’t help but grit her teeth as she recalled the time when she was still an experiment.
She gnashed her teeth when she recalled the horrendous time that she had spent under the blades of the devil as they conducted all kinds of experiments on her body. The experience was so hateful and terrible that she wanted to find the ones that experimented on her and throw them to hell herself if she could. However, this was not the time for that. She forced herself to calm down as she looked around coldly.
The fight had just started. After all, the disgusting secrets of the Imperial Family were just starting to get revealed.
As if to prove this fact, countless monsters crawled up from the grounds of the capital as soon as the Death Corps entered the area. These monsters killed their men under the orders of the Imperial Family monsters. But if the innocent civilians so much as interfered with their slaughter, they would also reveal their cruel and ferocious fangs and kill them off.
The Imperial public ran away from the Death Corps and the monsters that appeared in the capital while the soldiers continued to fight against the enemies.
“Don’t be afraid! All we need to do is do what we have always done! Stop the enemies!”
Several soldiers were shocked and terrified from the monsters that popped up all over the capital.
They thought that they were their allies when they saw them stopping the Death Corps but they all paused and wondered if they were truly on the same side when they saw them continue killing to the point that they killed the civilians in the capital.
The experiments from the rumors.
The soldiers realized that they were the beings that they had heard from the rumors. However, their minds were not able to wander any further. The officers and the knights shouted loudly so they had no choice but to concentrate on the battlefield. The officers and the knights were also confused but it was not the time to dwell on that, they needed to focus on the battlefield. After all, they would most likely crumble once their concentration was lost.
The Imperial Knights shouted loudly as they spat out blood from their mouths. The soldiers also defended the palace walls with all their might. They were determined to stop them even if they never wanted to die.
However, despite their struggles, the officers and the knights died one after the other.
“Keok! N… No… way.”
The first to be killed was the Imperial Knight Order’s deputy commander. He was killed under the hands of the Death Knight. Although they tried their hardest and fought until the very end, the Death Knight and the dark knights were still able to kill every single Imperial Knight present as they headed towards the Imperial Palace.
It seemed like they were in a hurry. After all, they all felt that the situation was unusual especially after the appearance of the monsters all over the capital.
― Your subordinates have been wiped out.
The Death Lord stared at the commander of the Imperial Knight Order.
All he did was sigh as he watched the knight commander vomit blood.
Even though he was already on the brink of death, he still did not give up. It was as if he was showing him that he was loyal through and through. However, that was not the case at all.
“H…How… How can I lose…”
― Even the commander of the Central Army is no match for me. Did you think that a fake master like you could stop me?
“How did… you…?”
The commander of the Imperial Knight Order looked up at him in surprise as blood continued to spill from his lips. But the Death Lord just looked down at him as if he was dealing with an insignificant bug.
― We know full well that all of the current knights in the Imperial Knight Order became powerful through the use of special drugs. You were also once blocked by the wall but using drugs to get past that, as expected…
A false master created by forcing the body to accept artificial mana and reinforcing it to make it more powerful. That was the current commander of the Imperial Knight Order.
“I’m not the end. His Majesty…”
― I know that. You must have forgotten that I was one of the Imperial’s experiments.
Death Lord smirked as he spoke.
― You look like you’re having a hard time so let’s end it here.
The Death Lord grinned as he blew his head off.
Seeing the death of the commander of the Imperial Knights, a master and their final hope, the morale of the Capital Defense Corps began to drop sharply.
The Death Lord led his own guards and headed directly towards the Imperial Palace.
Something fiercely approached from afar the moment all five of the high-ranking members of the Death Corps led their elite troops inside the Imperial Palace.
A woman covered with white light stood at the walls of the capital and broke everything with her bare hands.
“It’s the other-worlders’ coalition!”
An officer saw the flag of the other-worlders’ coalition and shouted loudly.
The other-worlders’ Central coalition was well known for their Brave Warriors and Rovnoff was the brave warrior who led this coalition as they fiercely followed the Death Corps.
“The chosen ones have arrived too!”
Gerdin Faulken, the only brave warrior to appear among the chosen ones, fiercely killed the Death Corps with bright light surrounding his body.
Hope began to rise from the despairing capital when the two troops joined the battle.
Although they did not exert any overwhelming power and momentum like the saint, they still had an overwhelming advantage over the impure and unclean things as beings that were chosen by God. As if to prove it, they had a small mark that let out holy power. The mark was as small as a dot, completely unlike the saint’s stigmata, but it was still powerful enough to sweep away the beings of death that were running in the lead.
Thanks to their outstanding performance, the situation of the war, where they had always been pushed back, was finally changing. The soldiers protecting the wall finally regained their courage and endured the attacks with all their might. In the end, the war was turned into a situation where no winner or loser could be determined.
While the situation outside of the capital turned into a stalemate, the situation inside the capital gradually turned into hell.
The Death Corps invaded and fought the monsters while the survivors that were trapped between their battle cowered and hid in the buildings as they hoped and prayed for this hellish time to pass.
However, the real hell was happening inside the Imperial Palace.
“I’m part of the Imperial Family!”
“How dare you to me! Me!”
Each of the members of the Imperial Family, who gave up on their human figure, shrieked in pain as they emphasized the fact that they were a part of the Imperial Family. The more they shrieked, the more the experiments wreaked havoc, the more the beings of death were hurt.
The scene in the palace was completely horrendous. The servants and the maids, who looked like they were disturbances, were dying under the hands of the monsters while the Imperial knights and the royal guards tried to stop the Death Corps.
However, the circumstances were a bit strange.
The Imperial Family monsters’ veins were bulging, their eyes were bloodshot while their mouths repeatedly shouted that they should protect the Imperial Palace. They looked like they were on drugs.
The same monsters were even born from the bodies of the servants who lost their lives as their bodies slowly turned ugly.
Even though the Imperial Palace had turned into a terrible place where it was difficult to determine whether the humans inside were just humans or were monsters, the commanders of the Death Corps just silently moved towards the place where the Emperor was. Their expressions did not change or waver at all.
The last place that they headed towards was the audience hall. After all, they had already devastated most of the Imperial Palace and this was the only place left.
The audience hall was a huge building that hosted the meetings where high-ranked nobles and ministers attended.
And in front of this huge building stood the Red Seductress, the Azure Witch, the Death Corps’ commander, the Death Knight and the Death Lord.
― You’re here.
― Sorry, I’m late.
The name of the race that they had become, the depires. The four lords of this race stood together as they bowed their heads in front of the Death Lord.
― Is he here?
Molina, the Death Corps commander, answered the Death Lord’s question.
― Hoo… Let’s end this.
All of the lords bowed their heads at the Death Lord’s order.
There were plenty of monsters that blocked their path but countless starving ghosts and skeleton soldiers dealt with them and opened a path that led them inside.
Hundreds of vampires, liches and dark knights followed behind them. All of them were the highest ranked beings in the Death Corps and were victims of the Imperial Family and the corrupt aristocrats.
The moment the Death Lord opened the wide and huge doors and stepped inside, they were greeted by the old emperor who was looking at them with an upturned chin.
“You’re finally here?”
The expressions of the Death Lord and the beings of death hardened after seeing the Emperor smirk at them.
As a person who stood at the pinnacle of the Empire, arrogance had seeped into his everything, including his facial expression, posture and momentum. It was a terrible and dreadful arrogance that shouted to the world that he was the best and the only person sitting in the highest position.
The Emperor continued to speak arrogantly.
“It’s a relief that you have come this far. I would have been disappointed if you had been trampled and killed by those simple vermins.”
Human beings came out one by one at the end of the words of the Emperor. The humans had hair covering their bodies and looked extremely similar to the monsters that claimed to be a part of the Imperial Family.
“Hey, do you know why the members of the Imperial Family want to become the Emperor?”
The Death Lord remained silent at the Emperor’s query.
“It’s so they could achieve an absolute death.”
The Emperor smiled widely as he said so.
“Isn’t it funny? We have to become an Emperor to die an absolute death as a human being, you know?”
The Death Lord looked at the surrounding area at the Emperor’s question.
The creatures who were once a part of the Imperial Family were looking at them. Some of them had pointed ears like the elves, some had fins like the mermaids, while some had tails like the werebeasts. Some had wings while some had horns or skin covered with scales. All of the members of the Imperial Family had different physical characteristics.
The Emperor burst out in laughter when he saw them.
“You’re not the only ones who have been under the table and underwent countless experiments without being able to live or die. The Imperial Family that you hate so much is also in the same boat as yours.”
The Emperor stared at the Death Lord as he said so.
“The Imperial Family has sacrificed everything for this Empire and this Empire alone. They tried to protect this Empire until they had become like that.”
The members of the Imperial Family, who underwent countless experiments, remained silent even after the lengthy words of the Emperor.
“Aren’t we pathetic? We’re in the same position as you…”
But instead of answering, the Death Lord just increased his power and momentum. Even the other beings of death showed off their power.
― We’re just here to take revenge. We’re not here to listen to your bullshit.
The Death Lord immediately rushed towards the Emperor as he said so.
Right now, all of the information about the Death Corps was being passed in real time.
Outside of the palace’s walls, the coalition of the other-worlders and the chosen ones had flocked to stop them. Soon, the being that threatened them the most in this world would come. However, they needed to finish their work before they could come.
They had to show them the ugly truth of this world.
― I will let everyone know why the Empire should disappear before killing you.
The Death Lord’s fist stopped right below the Emperor’s nose.
The Emperor laughed like crazy when he saw the Death Lord’s fist being stopped by the members of the Imperial Family.
“Do it. If you can” .
