Chapter 43 – Aftermath
Folding his arms Harris pondered for some time before speaking”There is no way I believe that they manage to breach the security without any insider help.”
“Someone must have helped them otherwise how can replace, so many guards right under our nose”.
” He also used the absence of Vice-Principal to achieve this. This plan must have been formulated recently when Vice-Principal got the order to deal the matters”.Harri said with a solemn expression.
“From it, I can infer that this person must have high authority in the horizon and must have excess to every information here” Ami started to get afraid at the conclusion they were reaching.
“It must be a member of the council or head of security management “.Ami spoke after analyzing.
” Tsk if that old man would be here, he would have surely gotten rid of these dogs. Due to his absence, these wild dogs are running wild and that old man, only God knows where he is enjoying his time without checking the matters of the academy”.Harris said with an annoyed expression.
‘The old man they were speaking about was referred to as the principal. Only a blood fiend can scold the principal like this.’ Ami kept his voice inside.
“If one day I got chance I will surely enjoy feasting on their blood”.
Ami shuddered om listening to Harris’ words. He is slowly going to his old ways.
‘Principal please make it quick wherever are you or there is going to be a blood bath in teaching instruction.’Ami muttered inwardly.
“Did they manage to pull out some information from that captured? If not you let me handle this. I am sure he would be happy seeing my treatment”.Harris grinned.
Miss Ami shivered on hearing Harris.
Harris may look kind and innocent but the moment he holds his sword he turns into a fiend, though he still maintains sanity he behaves worse than the demon.
He was a secret member, the kingdom has groomed who rose the ranks as fast as lightning.
But as he got stronger he was unable to control his bloodlust.
His sword is a blood artefact that can be upgraded and can give you huge power but it also increases your lust for blood that will not stop until it consumes you wholly, forcing you to kill.
Due to his nature, the king used him on killing missions, where one needed to dirty his hands.
He lost his sanity unable to control his bloodlust. If not for principal intervention, huge massacres would have happened.
The principal defeated him, crippling some mana of his channels which though dropped his rank allowed him to control the bloodlust.
This allowed him to start again helping to gain better control over his thirst for blood.
He still needed a few years of rehabilitation to use that sword but today circumstances forced him to use it.
Only time will tell if he will go crazy again or remain his sanity.
The principal offered him to work as an instructor here under his guidance.
Harris noticed Ami’s look and spoke,” Ami don’t worry about me. This time I will not give in to the madness. Trust me and don’t give me that look of sympathy I have not fallen that low.”.
If the world knew that the blood fiend who terrorized the world with his madness for blood is now serving as an instructor, the world would go crazy.
Petition to close down horizon will be passed to the kings, fortunately, no one has known about this matter till now.
“How is Lucas. I heard he got injured pretty badly”. Harris asked without any expression.
” Hmm. His body was filled with cuts all over but it has healed except for the hole in his chest. He just needs some rest now.”Ami answered.
“He has changed pretty much in these three months. He doesn’t have good talent like other but his will to get stronger make up for the lack of his talent”.Harris smiled recalling the time when Lucas had just entered the Academy.
Ami nodded in unison to Harris’s comment. After all, Lucas is one of the favourite students she had, since she had become an instructor in Horizon.
He will surely strike big one day. Everything in Lucas is good except his luck to get in troublesome matters. As an example, today’s incident had already been warned by Lucas through the skies.
Speaking of the Skies, they oddly have some luck in gaining important information.
While the Horizon was busy dealing with the chaos followed after the attack, trying to get any useful information to track the mastermind.
In a secluded underground chamber, a meeting was held with each member having a solemn expression.
There were twenty people present.No one uttered a single word waiting for their leader to start.
The mysterious person after looking at the reports of the mission failure shouted in anger.
The mysterious being slammed his fist on the table shouting furiously” How can this happen.”
“Just how. Even after spending so much money so many resources, we failed”.
” Not only did we fail, but we also failed miserably without getting one of the targets. Are those fools’ brains in their knees? How can they fail to kill a single child of noble with so much manpower?”
“If our plan succeeded, we could have caused internal strife in the Cyrus, which would have led to the civil war in future and now if everything went according to plan we would be able to get a large chunk of the kingdom to control”.
” But now everything failed because of a certain bastard. Somehow our plans must be leaked”One of the people present spoke.
“Leader from the details we uncovered half of our people eliminated before the start of the operation”.
” Those log head gave away their identity so easily. How is this possible”The leader asked curiously?
“If other criminal organisations came to know of it they will spit on our face”.
” What is Villain Society answer me. What is it’s a pledge”.
“We live to commit atrocities, we live to commit evil. Every time we move a massacre follow our trail”.All of them spoke in unison.
” Now the last part will be seen as a joke”.
“For the first time, we failed to kill a single person in our operation”.
” Due to failure, we have missed a golden opportunity”.
“Did you all forget? That our goal is to create a utopia of villains where they can live freely without any constraint”
“Commit crime without any restriction”
“Who is going to take responsibility for this matter”.
” Which bastard will take the responsibility”.He slammed the table in anger.
The table shattered into dust within the blink of an eye.
Everyone got up from their seat in fear.
Even if we compare all the people here along with the two 9-Star, the leader can overpower them.
“You jade demon and you K” He pointed out the men one by one.
“Why aren’t you speaking.”
Each of them had the strength of a 9-Star and were in charge of the parts of the mission.
“Leader listens to us calm down. The situation may not be as bad as we think” K spoked.
“Your reason” The leader glared at him.
K’s back is drenched in sweat seeing the leader stare.
“Although we have failed we have caused a mess in the horizon. People trust in the horizon will surely dwindle “.
” Don’t forget we are talking about nobles, they will not miss this opportunity to reap something after their heirs and children were still in danger”.
“They surely seek for trouble with the king. We can use this opportunity to make the situation fall out”.
The mysterious man calmed on hearing K.
‘Finally, something good to hear.’He thought.
” You are right K.You are quick to catch things”K raised his chin proudly to show his superiority.
Jade demon sneered seeing K act.
“Alright everyone is dismissed except K and Jade demon”.
” Jade I want to find the root cause of this mission failure. We can’t let this slide “.
” Boss I understand what you are saying but what’s the difference will it make”
“We will just be wasting time and manpower by doing it and there is still, huge risks of us being exposed . We shouldn’t divert the manpower now as we have other kingdoms to handle”.Jade demon stared at K for his suggestion.
” What jade demon said is correct”K spoke supporting Jade demon.
“Okay, we will strike big, at the festival”.The leader said giving a devil smile
” We will then turn it to the festival of mourning”
Standing in front of the mirror Lucas stared at the image of his body which had healed with a small scar in the chest.
“Aye…Aye.It will take time to heal.”Lucas spoke to himself.
Stretching his back lazily Lucas looked at the system notification
” I got 40000 experience points by killing him”.
After Lucas asked around he found that it was Miss Ami who have taken him to the infirmary.
Thankfully she hadn’t searched his things.
After killing Lucas had taken the storage rings from the man.
“It’s time to see the loots. Hehehe” Dusting his hands he took the rings and took out everything it had.
“Hmm. Let’s see what we have here”.
Lucas picked up useless things like potions, mini bombs, cloaks, a badge to identify members of the Villain Society.
” Whooa”..His eyes gleamed seeing the polished sword which was shining reflecting the rays of light.
