Versatile Mage - Chapter 2972
Chapter 2972: The Demon King, Ki Kurokawa
Mo Fan gave Ozawa a thumbs up.
Ozawa smiled bitterly. The dagger was still in his stomach, so it was hard for him to express himself properly. Ozawa, though, had done an excellent job!
He succeeded in getting those living in a dream to reflect and question.
As Lingling had mentioned, a dream was a dream, after all. It contained a lot of absurd things. People would feel as though everything was real while immersed in it. But when they tried to think and question, they would realize that this dream was full of loopholes!
The Blood Demons had controlled the Twin Guardian Towers, so it was full of ambiguities. The Blood Demons could steal a portion of the memory of the person involved, but they could not play their roles perfectly. Despite the perfect performance, a real person would always have their own flaws.
“Ikuko Ishida, where are you going?” Shou Watani suddenly asked.
“I’m not feeling well, so I want to go back and rest,” said Ikuko Ishida.
“Oh, why did mentioning the Blood Demons make you feel so uneasy? Can it be…” Shou Watani stared at Ikuko Ishida.
Ikuko Ishida panicked and bolted.
Shou Watani chased after her. A rope made of interwoven light silk appeared on his palm, and he threw it. The rope landed on Ikuko Ishida and tied her up!
“Shou Watani, what’re you doing? Why did you attack a student?” Tegami Fujikata asked angrily.
Shou Watani dragged Ikuko Ishida back. “During a training session, Ikuko Ishida hurt herself. She was injured on her right arm. I asked the nursing staff to help her deal with the wound, but her wound had miraculously disappeared. The wound was caused by Poison Element Magic. Even a Healing Mage would find it difficult to heal it so fast. At that time, I was suspicious of her.”
“Use Light Element Magic to burn her eyes,” Lingling said to Shou Watani.
“You can’t do that!” Tegami Fujikata shouted.
But Shou Watani ignored her. He knew other things about Ikuko Ishida that made him increasingly suspicious. He cast the Light Element Magic on Ikuko Ishida’s eyes.
Ikuko Ishida covered her eyes and screamed. Black smoke rose out of her body as if she was burning.
The black smoke became thicker. Her skin melted like black plaster. Black pus flowed down her body.
What was exposed once the pus ran down was not typical flesh and blood but rather dark blood scabs. Her body was covered in hideous-looking blood scabs.
“Ah!” The students next to Ikuko Ishida screamed in fright.
A Blood Demon! A Black Scab Blood Demon!
The horrifying thing did, in fact, exist.
The court erupted once more. People could not believe that a person had suddenly turned to something like this.
Tegami Fujikata had already gotten up. However, she had to pretend to be surprised at Ikuko Ishida’s appearance.
“Unbelievable! Unbelievable…” Tegami Fujikata did not dare defend her.
“Chief!” Ozawa shouted.
“W-What else do you want to say?” The Chief of the Towers took a deep breath.
He realized at this point that he was powerless to help the Black Scab Blood Demon. They could not show themselves because the moonless night had not yet arrived. If the others caught them in public, they would only die under the sun.
“The real Ikuko Ishida is imprisoned in the corridor of the prison of the East Guardian Towers. You wonder why I broke into the East Guardian Towers. This is the reason! Ikuko Ishida is not the only person imprisoned in the East Guardian Towers. I saw many people there, and I can tell you that—” Ozawa knew this was the right moment to tell the truth.
At that precise moment, a guard who had been watching Ozawa flung himself at him. He planned to kill Ozawa, so he snatched the dagger from his stomach.
When the man moved, his clothes seemed to be soaked by something. If someone looked closely, he would find that the guard was covered in blood and the uniform was dyed entirely red.
He could not let Ozawa tell everyone what he saw in the East Guardian Towers. He must kill Ozawa!
However, the Blood Demon Guard did not notice Mo Fan sneering.
Ozawa and Mo Fan switched places after a burst of brilliant silver light. The Blood Demon Guard hurled himself at Mo Fan instead of Ozawa, who was now grinning.
Mo Fan extended his hand, and the purple lightning wrapped around his arm like a snake. The snake struck out and bit the Blood Demon Guard on the neck.
From a distance, it looked like Mo Fan had lifted the Blood Demon Guard with one hand. The Blood Demon Guard could not move as the Lightning Demon Snake bit it.
“Another one!” Mo Fan smiled and threw the reckless Blood Demon Guard to the center of the court.
Everybody’s eyes grew wide.
They were still shocked about Ikuko Ishida’s transformation, and another Blood Demon had suddenly appeared. A person had suddenly turned into a demon!
Mo Fan slowly walked and stepped on the Blood Demon Guard. He glanced at everyone in the court.
They all maintained their composure. It seemed that the Blood Demon army planned to abandon these stupid Blood Demons who were caught.
The clever Blood Demons would not simply reveal their flaws. It appeared that they were also immersed in the roles they played based on the Blood Demon that imitated Mo Fan.
“The Blood Demons are like mice in the gutter. Not only can they not live publicly, but they are also indifferent when they see their companion being trampled on like this. I wonder if there are any fearless and righteous Blood Demons. Can you step forward and compete with me?” Mo Fan’s stepped on the Blood Demon Guard’s face and mocked them.
There were thousands of people in the court, but no one stepped forward.
“You guys were once terrifying demons. Why did you suddenly change and become the well-behaved watchdog of the Twin Guardian Towers? Since you decide to become a dog that submits to humiliation, why did you commit such a heinous crime in the first place? If you’ve been a dog all the time, you don’t have to be locked up in the East Guardian Towers,” Mo Fan continued to mock.
Mo Fan glanced around again. Someone stood up, just as he had predicted.
It was an ordinary-looking man in a military uniform. His military uniform wasn’t very neat so it was easy for him to blend in with the crowd.
He took off his hat and smiled. His face was distorted because of the smile.
“Hello, Mo Fan. I’ve heard a lot about you. I’m Ki Kurokawa.” The man in the military uniform dropped his hat, jumped off his seat, and walked toward Mo Fan.
Mo Fan raised an eyebrow. ‘What a brave Demon King.’
“Oh, it’s you. Someone who had to kill people just for them to remember you,” said Mo Fan in disdain.
Ki Kurokawa’s face darkened.
“Someone like me doesn’t have to kill people, and yet people will always talk about me. I’m like a dazzling star in the night sky,” Mo Fan continued.
Ki Kurokawa became so enraged that blood smoke began to emanate from him. His features eventually melded horrifyingly as though it had been corroded by a powerful acid.
He disliked acting. He liked to slaughter!
Since the result was already known, there was no point in wasting time with these individuals.
“Of course, there is one thing I must praise you for. You are like an adult with no interest in playing this kind of childish game with the Red Demons,” said Mo Fan.
