Chapter 70 – Knight of a Certain Country 4

-Emperors Kingdom’s 1st Knight’s Commander’s POV-

When I walk around the royal castle, I see fear oozing out of people’s faces.

I think it can’t be helped.

In the past few hundred years, the Emperors Kingdom has never been attacked, not even once.

We strengthened the power of the magic stone that strengthened the barrier of the kingdom.

As a result, it has become the country with the strongest barrier.

However, even though only for a minute or two, we were attacked.

Looking out from the window, I can see a clear bright sky without a single cloud.

However, it is possible for the weather to instantly change.

「You’re here?」

I heard my friend’s voice from behind.

I don’t even need to look at him, just his voice is enough for me to confirm that he’s tired.

After that lightning attack, it is said that the king increased the number of barriers near the magic stone several times.

Mages were placed near it to assure its safety.

However, 20 days later, as if mocking them,

Several spheres of light appear and erase the barriers that are tightly protecting the magic stone.

It seems like the magic stone’s crack has now become a big vertical crack.

According to eyewitnesses, countless lights flew from the forest in a straight line.

Given how the lights are visible to the people’s eyes, it is nerve-racking.

The lightning aimed at the king scorched the place around his feet without hitting the king directly.

The knights thought that the king was being protected by the king’s barrier and I also thought it was the case back then.

However, when I calmed down, I began to worry about one thing.

Was he really been protected?

The royal castle is quite far from the forest.

It will take 10 days to get to the entrance of the forest.

If it is the center of the forest, it will take several more times than that.

The king was targeted from that place.

Perhaps it’s because the king ordered to burn the forest.

Does that mean it can view the world from the center of the forest?

And given how the king was accurately targeted, it should be the case.

Otherwise, an attack with perfect timing like that is impossible.

 「What’s wrong?」

「I feel like he’s being tested.」

「Tested? Who?」

「The king of this country, by the king of this world,.」

I heard my friend holding his breath.

Thinking about it for a while, I realized that we were mistaken about 1 thing.

Yeah, it’s even very funny.

A small crack appeared in the magic stone and the mages confirmed and judged that it was due to an attack from somewhere.

That’s right, an attack.

We should have already noticed it that time.

「We are against someone who can completely negate the power of the magic stone.」

「What do you mean?」

Barrier is used to defend against an attack.

Normally, the barrier has the power to invalidate the magic casted against it.

The barrier of this country is strengthened by the magic stone so the barrier has the same power as the magic stone.

「It is absolutely necessary to break the barrier first before being able to damage the thing inside the barrier.」

「Certainly, what are you trying to say?」

「The barrier of this country has never been broken. Not even once.」

「…….」

Yes, even though the barrier of the country has not been broken, the things inside it are being damaged.

I should have noticed it immediately since it is abnormal for the barrier to not be broken even though there is an attack.

The mages have noticed it too.

However, they are worried about how they should report it to the king.

Because this country is a country strengthened and defended by the magic stone.

If the king changes his mind, perhaps.
