Chapter 39
Usually there would be travelers and merchants .
The gatekeepers who would stop and inspect them before letting them in .
It was the first time Loren had gone through a gate with no one there at all, and the eeriness he felt was something he never felt before on the battlefield .
Lapis, who was sitting next to him, was looking around the area in a relaxed manner . Every now and then she would whip the horse but instead hit Klaus, and watching him twitch spurred the eeriness Loren was feeling even more .
x201C;Shouldn x2019;t we let that down? x201D;
Putting aside the eeriness, Klaus, who was unconscious on top of the horse, in a sense was an injured person as well .
That meant Lapis was the one who injured him, but Loren decided to ignore that and gave the suggestion, but Lapis bluntly made a disgusted face .
x201C;I don x2019;t want to touch that thing you know? x201D;
x201C;I don x2019;t want to if I could either . x201D;
Klaus was hanging onto the rear end of the horse, and for the horse, having something twitching on its back wouldn x2019;t be the best feeling, but Loren didn x2019;t feel like stopping the caravan and getting him down .
That was how disgusting a person twitching while having his eyes rolled back into his head was .
x201C;Still, there really isn x2019;t anyone in here . x201D;
They pa . s . sed through the gate and into the city, and now the caravan was strolling down the main street, but there was no one there, and it was completely silent .
It was like a ghost town, but it wasn x2019;t roughed up at all but instead everything looked in order .
x201C;Doesn x2019;t look like it x2019;s been attacked by undead either . x201D;
If that was the case, there should be traces of it, but as far as Loren could see there were no signs of the citizens fighting anything in the streets .
He couldn x2019;t see any broken windows or buildings, or even bloodstains anywhere .
x201C;I never thought a clean city with no one in it would be so eerie . x201D;
x201C;Walking through an empty city with you . Doesn x2019;t it sound very romantic? x201D;
Compared to Loren, who was cautiously looking around with narrowed eyes, Lapis, who was holding the reins, said that with a smile on her face .
Loren couldn x2019;t understand her sensibility, but decided that there was no need to point that out and hurt her feelings, and end up adding coldness to the eeriness he was feeling .
x201C;Before we do anything, we should search for a hospital . You haven x2019;t forgotten we have four people dying back there, right? x201D;
x201C;That x2019;s true . Shayna, do you know where we could find a hospital? x201D;
Asking a resident about the city was the quickest way to find out .
At Lapis x2019; question, Shayna poked her head out of the caravan, took a look around, and pointed in a direction .
x201C;I think there was one over there . x201D;
x201C;Then let x2019;s go in that direction . x201D;
Lapis turned the horse towards the direction Shayna pointed out .
The caravan rolled down the ordinary looking street, minus the fact that no one was there .
The hospital Shayna had pointed to that they arrived at a while later looked like a clinic run by an individual .
There were hospitals that were run by the state itself, but the only hospital Shayna knew of was the one they were currently at .

x201C;In our current situation, I believe this is actually the better choice . x201D;
Lapis said as she looked at Shayna, who was clinging onto Loren x2019;s waist, while she parked the caravan near the clinic and untied the horse from it .
x201C;I don x2019;t want to go near a large facility while we don x2019;t know what x2019;s going on with the city . x201D;
x201C;What do you mean? x201D;
x201C;Nothing in particular . Rather than that, can you carry everyone out of the caravan? Come one, you should help too . x201D;
Lapis called Klaus, who had been lowered down from the horse .
Although he had taken many blows to the back, he was still in way better shape than the others .
He regained consciousness as soon as he got off and sunk to the ground as if all the strength was sapped out of him .
x201C;Can x2019;t you let me rest for a bit? It x2019;s pretty much thanks to me we got away from that dragon . x201D;
x201C;You haven x2019;t forgotten that Loren was the one who saved Ange from the dragon, right? x201D;
x201C;Ugh x2026; x201D;
As Loren was exasperated that Klaus barely remembered after being told so, Klaus stood up and faced him, with his gaze pointed downwards, muttered in a voice that Loren could barely make out .
x201C;U-umm, well x2026;Thanks x2026;for saving Ange x2026; x201D;
x201C;We haven x2019;t saved her just yet . If you have time to be saying that, use it to carry everyone inside instead . x201D;
x201C;Alright . x201D;
Loren smiled at Klaus, who looked crest-fallen but replied to him honestly .
x201C;Now that I think about it, you were whipped by my priest the whole night x2026;Did it open any kind of new doors inside of you? x201D;
x201C;Wha!? No way! x201D;
x201C;You x2019;re not thinking it x2019;s not too bad or anything right? x201D;
x201C;Of course not! I x2019;m normal! x201D;
x201C; x2026;So you understand that awakening to that kind of thing is abnormal . x201D;
Klaus was red and looked like he wanted to say something, but thought for a moment, glaring at Loren, and eventually said nothing as he turned away from Loren and started walking towards the caravan to help carry the others out .
Lapis whispered teasingly to Loren, who was watching Klaus walk away .
x201C;You didn x2019;t have to provoke him to get him back to his usual self you know? x201D;
x201C;It x2019;s nothing like that . I was just teasing him . x201D;
After brushing her away with a wave of his hand, Loren walked over to the caravan as well to carry the others out .
He decided to carry Broas and leave the other three to Klaus .
He wasn x2019;t trying to let Klaus do all the work, but it was because the other three were all girls as well as members of Klaus x2019; party, so he was just trying to be considerate .
He wasn x2019;t sure how Klaus interpreted it, but instead started unloading what little they were able to take from the camp .
They couldn x2019;t take what was already unloaded, but they were able to bring with them what they had decided wasn x2019;t needed for setting up camp and left inside the caravan . Inside were food and some medical supplies .

x201C;Are you telling me to go out too!? They x2019;re my party members you know!? x201D;
Klaus complained at Lapis x2019; suggestion as expected, but Lapis gave him a despising look, and he stammered at its intensity .
x201C;I x2019;m going to start treating them, so I x2019;ll have to loosen as well as take off their clothes x2026;Are you saying you want to watch me do that? x201D;
x201C;Ugh, well, no x2026; x201D;
x201C;I x2019;ll also be taking Broas x2019; clothes off as well, and I believe that wanting to watch the bare body of a middle-aged man is quite a high-level taste . x201D;
x201C;I never said I have that sort of taste! x201D;
Lapis silently pointed at Ange and the girls as Klaus shouted out, his face completely red, and he immediately covered his mouth . Lapis then pointed towards the door, telling him to get out .
This time he followed her instructions and left the room, and as Loren was about to follow him Lapis called him back .
x201C;Loren, can you let Klaus handle keeping watch around the perimeter, and can you take Shayna and explore the area around us? x201D;
x201C;Me? With Shayna? x201D;
While Loren stood there questioning the pairing, Lapis continued .
x201C;I feel like Klaus wouldn x2019;t be able to find much, and I don x2019;t want to entrust Shayna to him . x201D;
x201C;Is it a bother if I leave her? x201D;
Loren wasn x2019;t against exploring the area, but taking Shayna was a whole different story .
There was no telling what they would encounter out there, and Loren didn x2019;t want to put a young girl in danger, so he couldn x2019;t understand Lapis x2019; suggestion .
x201C;I x2019;ve mentioned this before, but to treat them I x2019;ll have to take off their clothes . The girls wouldn x2019;t be too bad, but I think that Broas x2019; naked body would be too much of a bad influence on her . x201D;
x201C;You x2019;re going to strip him naked? x201D;
Loren thought that going that far wouldn x2019;t be necessary, but since Lapis knew what she was doing, he guessed that it was necessary . Showing Shayna something like that would not be a good thing .
x201C;A walk around the area should be fine . Shayna is from this city, so she should know her way around as well . x201D;

x201C;I guess that x2019;s true . x201D;
If she was a princess of sort, Loren thought she wouldn x2019;t know too much about the city itself, but up until this point, it seemed like she knew some things about it .
x201C;Can you do that for me? x201D;
Unlike when dealing with Klaus, Lapis x2019; face was serious, and since she had a proper reason behind it, Loren didn x2019;t feel like setting up an argument, so he nodded .
x201C;I x2019;m bringing her back as soon as I think it x2019;s dangerous . x201D;
x201C;Of course . I x2019;m counting on you . x201D;
Since she had asked him to do it, the only thing he could do is start acting .
Even though she explained logic after logic, Loren still wasn x2019;t comfortable with the idea, but took Shayna, told Klaus to keep watch, and slowly walked out the building .
