“I didn’t even felt a slightest hint of his presence…….”
The Fifth Prince is said to have no power over them, but was he always been this weak?
However, considering the backstory of the Imperial Guard, it may be natural.
All of them possess supernatural powers.
“I am the Imperial Guard’s captain from the first squad, Nice meeting you.”
“I am also pleased to meet you too.” Raymond replied with a nod.
“Because It was sudden, I couldn’t follow the Etiquette. I was sent here to pick you up, so if you are angered, please let it down.” the Imperial Guard said with his head slightly lowered.
Even when other Princes come to the Palace, they won’t bother to follow the Etiquette, but what’s the difference? It’s just lip service anyway.
“Quite angry that this notice just came suddenly. Anyway, never mind that part.”
‘It’s not that I care.’
Before Coming here, the Imperial Guard made some changes to his personal assessment of the Fifth Prince.
He looked a little surprised, but Raymond didn’t see him clearly because he was covered with a helmet.
“I’ll take you to the dining room.”
“An Imperial Guard as Guide……. This is very reassuring.”
Raymond said with a smile on his face. It wasn’t sarcastic, it was actually pure joy.
The voice of the Fifth Prince, who was full of energy, spread a smile on the lips of the Imperial Guard.
Of course, he wasn’t seen because of the helmet.
“Yes, Your highness the Fifth Prince. I’ll protect you even if the assassin pops up right away.”
“The shield of the Imperial Family will never be breached. So I’m relieved.”
What’s the point of being attacked at the palace in the first place?
Still, a bright smile spread to the face under the helmet of the captain, as Raymond smiled and thanked him purely.
Even if it’s just a word of goodwill, having this conversation with the Imperial Guard itself was not a bad experience.
This isn’t the real Fifth Prince in front of him now, anyway.
“I will protect you even if an assassin from the Kingdom of Edgar, the kingdom of night, comes at you, Fifth Prince.”
There is a Three Kingdom alliance who is hostile to the Pilias empire, so it is not possible that the best assassin of this time, Harsha Xin, is here?
Although this Empire was falling, it is still an Imperial palace residing deep within the Imperial City.
‘It’s never gonna happen.’
There was absolutely no way it was going to happen.
“The palace has been attacked!”
“Imperial Guards! Protect the Emperor!”
The Empire seemed to have fallen far earlier than Raymond thought.
He managed to bear the thought of swearing.
It’s been Five years since he had seen the Emperor’s face, and he couldn’t believe that this would happen when he decided to finally see him.
‘I’m unlucky enough to have no luck.’
He was just a little startled, not scared at all with this current situation.
This is because if he recalled what was written in the book, it is clear that most characters does not lose their lives here.
Above all, the Fifth Prince, Raymond Pilius, survived the attack on the banquet hall in the beginning of the first volume.
Of course, he loses his life with other Imperial Family member at the climax of the first volume, he but at least he will not die yet.
“The Imperial knights must protect His Highness the Fifth Prince!”
The Imperial knights, who followed him as attendants shouted at the top of their lungs, drew their sword and surrounded Raymond.
Raymond was confused by the sudden change of situation and tried to open his mouth.
“Is this an Imperial family member? I’m quite lucky.”
The assassin appeared between space.
The Empire is said to have fallen, but this was still the Imperial Palace. It was not easy to assassinate the Emperor.
It was just a scouting work to find out any information about the Emperor’s Guards, but he didn’t expected an Imperial family member in his way.
Besides, there aren’t many Imperial knights to protecting him.
Most of the Imperial Kights and Imperial Guards were concentrated on the Emperor.
“It’s my first time facing an Imperial Guard.”
The assassin was confident of his victory.
Looking at the scene, the Imperial Guard opened his mouth.
“An assassin, eh.”
‘Someone sent a real assassin?’
Raymond was freaking out.
“But don’t worry, Fifth prince.”
The Captain took out his sword.
“I have promised to protect you.”
Raymond felt determination in his voice.
“The shield of the imperial family is not meant to be broken.”
“I can believe it. I made it before a Royal Guard.”
“I won’t let you down.”
Before that he took a step forward.
An unusual power flowed out of his body, the assassin, who was initially confident of winning, was also nervous.
“Is this the Imperial Guard’s power…?”
The moment the assassin muttered in a voice of interest, the long sword of the Imperial Guard appeared between his hands.
A short and sharp small sword also popped out of the assassin’s sleeve.
Only after more than 10 clashes between the small and long swords did Raymond notice that the battle had begun.
‘It is clear that the Fifth Prince was not talented, but I never thought It would be this bad.’
Raymond sighed at the level of the body, which wanted to see the confrontation between the two strong men but did not even see the afterimage of the movement properly.
