Grid and Euphemina hurriedly ran away from the knights. Thanks to Euphemina grasping the layout of the first and second floors of the dungeon, the two people didnt have to wander and managed to reach the surface level.
Brilliant sunshine! Blue sky! A green lawn! Grid was excited by the bright and brilliant landscape that was unlike the dark dungeon where all sides were blocked.
"Hahahahat! We escaped the castle~"
The dungeon entrance that Grid and Euphemina escaped from was located between towers erected on the east-facing wall. The two of them were exiting the tower, and there was a lookout above them. In other words, there were concerns that the guards in the watchtowers would hear Grids loud voice.
"Be quiet, we are still in the middle of enemy territory."
Euphemina tried to calm Grid down but he was so excited about escaping that he didnt hear her.
"Kya! Look at this clean air. The humid air in the dungeon was so bad! I thought my lungs were rotting away. Air is important! I finally understand why city people are so excited about the air in the countryside!"
Grid made a fuss as he lay down on the lawn and rolled around. He was out of control.
Euphemina had a headache. Most of the soldiers were defeated but the power of the lords bodyguards still seemed intact. The bodyguards werent a match for knights, but their level and skills exceeded that of ordinary soldiers. Euphemina didnt want to face them. In the worst case, they could tie up her feet until the knights arrived from underground.
"Hey Grid, we need to leave this place as secretly and quietly as possible, so be a bit more quiet..."
"Hah~~ the smell of the grass is so clear and refreshing! The nice scent of pine needles!"
Euphemina tiredly rubbed her temple, steadily reaching the limits of her patience.
In the end, Euphemina took action and approached Grid, who was sniffing the lawn, and grabbed his collar. Then she pushed her mouth towards Grids ears and yelled,
"You! Didnt I tell you to be quiet? Dont you have a brain? We are in the middle of enemy territory! We should be running away from this dangerous territory, so why are you making noise while rolling around!!! Yes?"
Grid felt like his eardrums had ruptured from the shock. The tearful Grid struggled to escape from Euphemina.
"You, dont embarrass me anymore but acting like a fool. Dont you want to leave this damn place? So do it properly. If you act so stupidly again, I really will kill you."
Euphemina knew that the grade of Grids class was higher than hers. Grid wasnt a weak person. Nevertheless, she couldnt help becoming angry as she kept scrutinizing Grid.
Grid was really afraid that he would be killed by Euphemina when he suddenly turned his attention to one side. Then he gently spoke to Euphemina.
"There... are they enemies?"
An ominous feeling. Euphemina slowly turned in the direction that Grid pointed. Then she was frustrated. 16 bodyguards armed with full plate armor appeared in a systematic formation.
Their 16 swords reflected in the sunlight, causing flashes throughout the castle.
Grid scowled and snapped at her. "Look what this angry girl did... You caused such a big fuss that the enemies emerged."
Euphemina was upset and retorted, "This is because you were loud first!"
Eupheminas killing intent flared up. Grid trembled with fear as he apologized, "S-Sorry, I was wrong. It was a slip of the tongue."
Then they met an unexpected person outside the castle. It was the second highest ranked person in the Mero Company, Rabbit. He was standing with 10 people as if he had been waiting for them.
Colour returned to the face of the lord. "Ohh! Arent you Rabbit? You heard the news and came to rescue me!"
Grid became tense.
This... are they soldiers from the Mero Company?
As Grid inwardly shouted, Euphemina strode forward towards Rabbit. She looked at Rabbits subordinates and asked.
"These are the people you mentioned earlier?"
Rabbit nodded. "Thats correct. They originally followed Valmont but became disappointed with his brutality. They wont hold you back."
"They do look strong. Great. I can count on them."
The two people were talking like they were friends!
Grid felt extreme anxiety. Why are the two of them so close? Wait, wasnt Euphemina hired by the Mero Company in the first place? Then why? Maybe Euphemina saving me was a trap!
Grids guess was this:
Winstons lord and the Mero Company had joined hands.
Euphemina, who was hired by the Mero Company, was subsequently the lords ally.
The conclusion that could be drawn from the first and second fact was that Euphemina was an enemy.
If Euphemina really belonged to the lord, she wouldnt have killed his soldiers. She also wouldnt be dragging the lord around like a dog. In the first place, why would Euphemina rescue Grid if she was the enemy? She also returned the unique dagger to him instead of selling it.
But Grid was so confused that any thinking was impossible. He could only make the simple judgment that Euphemina was the enemy.
It is the end... I really cant easily trust a black-bellied animal like her! I showed her some goodwill, only to be duped!
Grid thought of some of the historical dramas he watched and decided.
I wont obediently let her kill me. I wanted to be more careful about my stat distribution, but it cant be helped. Status window.
