After the events that took place in the arena, the two clan leaders split up and returned to their respective VIP rooms.
Inside a VIP room very similar to the one Victor was in, three people were present.
A blonde woman wearing a long elegant black dress was sitting on a sofa, and beside her was a woman wearing a purple dress with some white accents.
Unlike Victoria, where the dress was more noble, this woman ’s dress was more modern.
”Tatsuya, I ’m counting on you… And remember not to use lightning. You can win with only your father ’s talent; I believe in you. Take care, my son. ” Victoria spoke with a gentle expression on her face as she looked at her son, a tall man at 185 cm in height, pale skin, long dark blond hair, and dark black eyes.
He was wearing a black yukata with gold accents.
”Yes, Mother. ” The man exhibited a small, gentle smile as he walked towards the exit of the room and walked towards the arena.
The moment Tatsuya left the room, Victoria looked at the woman beside her with a serious look different from what she was showing before.
”How? How can they know about Tatsuya? I ’m paying you billions of dollars every month, so that doesn ’t happen. ” She spoke in a cold tone.
”…Believe me, Victoria. I do not know either. ” The woman spoke with a small sigh.
”Even for a witch like you… you don ’t know? ” Victoria ’s eyes changed to blood red.
”… Sigh. ” The woman sighed after watching Victoria for a while.
”Yes, I don ’t know. But I do have a hunch. ”
”One of that woman ’s daughters has the clairvoyant ability, maybe your son showed up at some important event in the future, and she knew about it? But that wouldn ’t explain why the Horseman Clan knows about it. ”
”… ” Victoria was not satisfied.
”Hecate, I ’m paying you a dear price every month for you to hide my son ’s existence and protect him. ” She assumed a cold smile, ”From the moment that old man discovered my son ’s existence, you failed your job. I will lower your pay. ”
”…! ” The witch opened her eyes wider, and her face darkened a little, ”W-Wait, his existence hasn ’t been discovered by everyone yet, and that doesn ’t break the contract rule! ”
Victoria ignored what Hecate said, ”If you don ’t want to lose money, hurry up and find out what happened. ”
”Yes, I will. ” Hecate sighed a little relieved, she didn ’t want to miss her golden goose. Being hired by a woman with a net worth of trillions of dollars like Victoria was every witch ’s dream.
”So? Who will fight, my older brother or me? Maybe my little sister? ” Einer Horseman asked, and, as always, he had that crazy grin on his face.
Niklaus, who was standing watching the arena through the glass, spoke without looking back, ”Your older brother cannot fight, and I will not entrust such an important matter to my daughter. ”
”You will fight. ”
”Oh? Thanks, Father~ ” Einer continued to laugh.
”This is your last chance…Don ’t fail me like you failed to capture that alpha wolf. This time, the opponent is someone of your level, and he won ’t be using all of his power. You shouldn ’t have excuses if you lose to that woman ’s son. ”
Niklaus was very disappointed. He gave his son a simple mission and even sent someone strong enough to capture an alpha wolf, but even so, the two failed because of their arrogance.
”… ” Einer kept showing his smile as he looked at his father seriously. He knew he had disappointed his father, and that is something that shouldn ’t be repeated.
”I will not fail, Father. ” He spoke with absolute confidence. He had no confidence in fighting an alpha wolf, but a vampire? That ’s easy.
”Good. Now, go. ”
”Yes. ” Einer got up from the couch and walked towards the exit of the VIP room.
”… ” Zwei and Jessica just fell silent.
”How is the boy ’s condition? ” Niklaus asked.
”Dying…sick… ” Zwei responded neutrally, and then he continued, ”He doesn ’t have time… ”
”… ” Niklaus started to think a little before speaking:
”… That ’s a problem… It ’s very difficult to create a hybrid. We can ’t lose it until we complete our goal. ”
”What shall we do with those individuals my brothers have brought, ” Jessica asked, she was curious about what her father was going to do with Lucy and his subordinates.
”Nothing. Karen is keeping an eye on them. ”
”I don ’t trust Karen, ” Jessica said. She couldn ’t trust Karen, she felt that this woman would betray them at any moment.
”My Daughter. ” Niklaus looked at his daughter with the same bored eyes he always has, ”It doesn ’t matter whether you trust her or not. She ’s doing her job and giving information; that ’s all that matters. ”
”But-. ” Jessica wanted to say something, but her father continued,
”If she becomes useless and doesn ’t do her job, she should just be eliminated. ” He looked back at the arena.
”Asking for a vampire ’s trust is sheer nonsense. ”
”… ” Jessica was silent, she didn ’t know what to say to her father because, in the end, she knew he was correct. Vampires will always act in their own best interest.
A man wearing a red and black suit walked into the middle of the arena. He was a tall man and was wearing a smiling mask on his face.
The man raised his hands in the air and said:
”Ladies and gentlemen, the two clans have decided the rule of the game today! ” His voice strangely traveled to all corners of the arena.
”Look at this! ” He pointed into the air, and soon everyone could see a giant hologram showing.
Chosen games: a 1 v 1 duel.
Rules: If the participant has their heart destroyed, they lose. If the participant surrenders, they lose.
Time limit: No limit.
Clan Horseman bets: Vampire Count title
Clan Rider bets: The Rider Clogomerate
ATTENTION: THE GAME STARTS IN 10 MINUTES!
”OHHHH! ” The crowd started clapping and cheering.
”It ’s a fight! A fight! ” A man shouted excitedly.
”Would we be able to see two Count-level vampires fighting!? ” A woman spoke with a big smile on her face, she looked excited.
”This is a great opportunity! ” A man across the arena spoke.
”Finally, something interesting is happening. ” A bored-looking man spoke.
”…I wouldn ’t be so optimistic…. ” A pessimistic-looking woman commented.
The vampires who were present in the arena started to debate who would fight whom; they looked very impatient.
But it wasn ’t just them. Victor ’s group was also impatient.
”Tsk. ” Mainly Victor.
”Father? ” Ophis looks up and sees Victor ’s annoyed face.
Victor looked at Ophis and smiled gently, then he began to stroke her head, ”It ’s nothing, Ophis. ”
”Mm~ ” She exhibited a small smile and closed her eyes as if enjoying his caresses.
”Haha~. Be patient, Victor. These things take time to get done. ” Scathach commented.
”… ” Victor didn ’t say anything and just remained silent.
”My aunt seemed to get annoyed for a moment. ” Sasha, who was beside Victor, spoke.
”Oh, did you notice? ”
”Yes, ” Sasha nodded.
”It was only for a few seconds, but her emotions seemed to intensify, ” Ruby commented.
”That man must have done something. ” Elizabeth, who was a little far away, spoke.
”…You seem to know him, Princess. ” Victor looked at Elizabeth.
”Nothing escapes the king ’s eyes. ” Elizabeth smiled.
”HAHAHA! ” Scathach laughed as if she ’d heard the funniest joke in the world.
”… ” Elizabeth ’s face became neutral.
”Nothing escapes the king ’s eyes. Except for Countess Scathach. ” She rephrased her sentence.
”Heh~, glad you understand, Princess. ”
”… ” Elizabeth turned her face away and ignored Scathach. When she turned her face away, she could see her guards, who were still standing with thorns of ice hovering around them.
”… Can you let my guards go? ”
”Oh… I forgot about them. ” Scathach snaps her fingers, and soon the ice is gone.
”Thanks, Princess. ” The guards spoke, and soon they broke away from the group and stood guard near the door.
Elizabeth sighed. For some reason, she just wanted to get out of this place, she couldn ’t handle Scathach!
”You seem to be having a rough time, Princess, ” Eleanor spoke.
”… ” Elizabeth looked at Eleonor with a neutral gaze and nodded.
”Don ’t worry, we all understand your feeling. ”
”… ” Everyone in the room except Victor, Sasha, Ruby, Violet, and Scathach, who were talking to each other, nodded.
”My mom is a very difficult person to deal with… Especially now that she ’s… Hmm… having fun? ” Siena spoke.
”… ” Elizabeth looked at Siena with a neutral expression.
Siena ’s eyes darkened a little, ”But don ’t worry, you ’ll get used to it soon, and look! She found someone like her; we have two Scathach now! ”
”…Bloody Hell, I want to get out of here…. ” She really wanted to get out of that room right now.
