They were accompanied On their way to the capital by the personal army of Countess Eleonor Adrasteia.
The group traveled relatively quickly. A trip that could have taken two days of running at a moderate pace was reduced to one day, and, as a consequence, they arrived just before the match between Victoria Rider and the Horseman clan leader happened.
Of course, if they were running, they would have arrived faster, but a comfortable ride is always the best option.
And in a way, Victor had fun riding Chloe, the horse was very fast, and she was very obedient… Honestly, he was actually considering kidnapping Chloe…
But when he thought about it, his conscience quickly hit him hard. He tried his best not to take Scathach ’s bad habits, but after living six months under the same roof with a woman that has a strong personality like Scathach… Like it or not, he was influenced a little.
After all, they were already similar.
Looking at the capital from a distance, Victor was at a loss for words for the first time.
”…Beautiful, right? ” Sasha spoke with a small smile as she looked at Victor ’s stunned expression.
Victor wakes up from his stupor and, soon, he displays a small smile as he pats Sasha ’s head, ”It ’s not as beautiful as you… ”
”… ” Sasha flashed a small satisfied smile and leaned her back against Victor ’s chest.
”But… indeed, this is a beautiful city, ” I said as I looked out over the city again.
A smile curls my lips involuntarily. Ahead of me, I saw a city that was even darker than horror movie cities.
Flying bats, and ancient buildings that seemed to have come from early times, even I could feel that, despite being old, their buildings were incredibly resistant.
Despite looking gloomy, the capital was reasonably illuminated by the lights of the houses. In a world where the night never ended, the city had a confused feeling of depression, joy, and especially danger…
Some powerful auras made me feel excited and expectant; ’After training with my mother-in-law, my blood is boiling to experience a decent fight.
Although it ’s fun to train with Scathach, I still can ’t compare myself to her, I know I ’ve gotten stronger, but the question I most want to know is; How much stronger did I get compared to other vampires?
How much stronger have I become!? I want to know! I want to have fun! I want to find someone strong to test my limits! I don ’t know why I ’m feeling this overwhelming desire in me, but I don ’t care! I want to fight!
And something tells me I will find the answer in this capital.
”HOLD! ” Two guards covered in armored armor yelled; he was holding a spear somewhat resembling Eleonor ’s army.
”Identify yourself! ” they shouted in unison.
Victor looked at the guard with curious eyes, he could also feel several eyes watching him inside the walls, and each one of these guards gave a different sense of pressure. He could instinctively tell that all these guards were strong!
”They are not common guards, ” Victor whispered with a small smile on his face. His instincts were begging him to fight! But he held back; he knew it wasn ’t time yet.
”Yes, they ’re not… ” Sasha observed the guard, ”They ’re the king ’s personal guard, vampires specifically trained to protect the king, and the king ’s family, ” Sasha explained.
”I see… ” Victor nodded, and then he concentrated on stroking Sasha ’s head, and, just like that, he could calm his instincts.
”Walter, please, ” Eleonor said.
Soon one of Eleonor ’s armed vampire soldiers rides beside Eleonor ’s carriage, that soldier removes his helmet, and soon the face of an old man is shown:
”Your wish is my command, Countess Eleonor. ” He spoke respectfully, then walked towards the guard.
”This level of security at the entrance is not common, ” Ruby, who was inside the carriage, said.
”Oh? ” Victor looked at the carriage window.
”Usually, these guards are not at the city gate. They are royal guards, and they just protect the king and the king ’s family; they are mostly in the king ’s personal residences… Having so many guards at the entrance to the capital is not a good sign, ” Ruby explained.
”Kakaka. Don ’t overthink it, my daughter. The king is just being overprotective of his daughters. ” Scathach chuckled.
”… They are here? ”
”Probably so. After all, that man just goes overboard with security when his daughters are around. ”
”An overprotective father… He reminds me of someone, ” Victor thought of his teacher… When thinking about his acquaintances, Victor suddenly felt a sense of longing for his family; ’Are my mom and dad okay? ’
He hasn ’t talked to his family for six months, and he ’s never been away from his family for so long. ’When I have time, I ’ll call them. ’
”Pepper…I think it ’s time you got off that horse, right? We ’ve already arrived in town… You too, Sasha. ” Violet with a ’gentle ’ smile on her face.
Pepper ’s body shivered when she heard Violet ’s voice, ”…B-But. ” She didn ’t want to get down now, she had a lot of fun, but she still wanted to play more!
”Humpf, ” Sasha turned her face and leaned into Victor even more!
Veins began to pop in Violet ’s head when she saw Sasha ’s attitude.
”Pepper~… ” Violet ’s eyes changed to blood red, and her blood pressure seemed to increase.
”Nooo! I do not want to! ” Pepper turned away.
”Stop bullying my sister, don ’t be jealous. She ’s not interested in that sort of thing. You know that. ” Ruby spoke.
”… ” Violet didn ’t want to give up.
”Hahaha. Don ’t be angry, Violet. ” Victor displayed a small smile.
Hearing Victor ’s voice, Violet ’s eyes changed to violet, and she looked up at him with a pout on her face:
”B-But Darling- ” Violet was going to say something, but she stopped talking when she heard Victor ’s voice again.
”How about this? I ’ll take you on a date later, just the two of us~. ”
”!!! ” Violet, Ruby, and Sasha ’s eyes changed to blood red.
Not wanting to miss the chance, Violet said, ”You promise!? ”
”Yeah, pinky promise. ” He joked, but his wives knew he was serious.
”G-Good. ” Violet ’s body started to shake, and a huge smile threatened to escape her face, but she quickly turned her face away and looked out over the landscape.
Seeing that Victor was silent and didn ’t mention the two, Ruby and Sasha looked at Victor with intense eyes.
Feeling Ruby and Sasha ’s gaze boring into his head, he looks at them:
”Don ’t worry. I haven ’t forgotten about you. ” He strokes Sasha ’s head:
”I ’ll take Violet first, but I want to have a one-on-one date with each of you. ” He flashed a loving little smile.
”O-OH… ” Even though they wanted a date, they didn ’t know how to react when he openly spoke those words…
They were happy! But they were also embarrassed!
Women are complicated beings…
”You can come in! ” The gate behind the guard began to open:
”The Countess Eleonor ’s army must remain stationed outside the capital! ”
”Walter, deploy the army in my personal mansion outside the capital; that place has enough space. ”
”Yes, Countess Eleonor, ” Walter speaks, and soon he starts giving orders to the knights.
”Don ’t make a mess in the capital, or— ” The royal guard would threaten the group.
”Heh, or what? ” Scathach shows her face through the window and looks at the guard, then she opens the carriage door and gets out.
Looking at the woman who got out of the carriage and seeing her striking features, he immediately recognized the woman:
”C-C-C-Countess Scathach Scarlett! ” They were getting cold under their armor now.
How could they not know this woman? After all, she was the one who trained some of them in the past.
”Tell me, what are you going to do if I decide to blow up the gate? ” She had a slight smile on her face.
She looked like she was kidding, but the guards knew not to play with this crazy woman!
”W-Well… ” The guard didn ’t know what to say.
Siena and Lacus, who were seeing this from a distance, said:
”Mother seems to be a little irritated, ” Lacus.
”Indeed, what happened to make her angry? ” Siena.
”Hahahaha, even the king ’s guards are afraid of you… Just what did you do, Scathach? ”
”… ” The guards looked at Victor in shock. He just used Scathach ’s name so informally!? Is he crazy!? He will die!
”I did a lot of things…I don ’t remember anymore~ ” she flashed a small smile.
…She didn ’t do anything!? The guards were freaking out internally.
”As expected of you. ” He flashed a small smile.
’Just who is this man!? ’ The guards knew that in the vampire world, there was only one being who could speak to Scathach like that, and that was their king!
They didn ’t know this man!
In the past, if someone disrespected Scathach, that was reason enough for that vampire to die!
”Well, isn ’t the gate open? Let ’s get going? ” Victor got off the horse along with Sasha, and he stroked Chloe ’s mane. The horse neighed happily and a little sadly.
”… ” Eleonor looked at it with a jealous look.
Chloe looked at Pepper with a hateful look; after all, this dairy cow was on top of her now!
”…Her mood has improved… ” Lacus commented as she looked at her mother, who was entering the capital.
”… Mother. ” Siena puts her hand to her face and sighs.
After this minor incident happened to the guards at the entrance to the capital, the group soon entered the capital.
But without Victor knowing, a rumor ended up circulating among the guards, and soon that rumor began to slowly spread through the city.
The rumor was simple, ”Someone called that red-haired demon informally and survived! ”
The initial content of the rumor was this. But as time went by, and the rumor circulated by word of mouth, it turned out that in the end, the rumor was totally distorted, to something like:
”Someone managed to tame that red-haired demon! ”
There were versions of the rumor that said something like, ”The red-haired devil got a new toy! ”
And in the end… No one knew anymore which was the true version of this rumor… But one thing is certain, because of this misunderstanding that Victor unknowingly provoked, he increased his reputation a little with the king ’s guards.
