Chapter 25: Investigation Request(5)
The white flames and the smoke that was caused by the explosion gradually began to clear up.
“This has to be a lie…”
From within, a vampire appeared completely unscathed.
After all, the person who fired the attack was blown away by the aftermath and took damage in addition to running out of magic power.
If it wasn’t for the 『Magic Enchantment』 I learnt along the way, shooting it would have been impossible for me.
“That’s interesting, I’m a little curious.”
The vampire that appeared seemed to have lost some of her hostility.
“So, what brought you here”
A moment’s grace.
I had the sensation of various events flying through my head at high speed.
If I answered wrongly, I would be killed.
That was what my instincts told me.
Originally, I was asked by the guild to investigate… no, that’s not right.
It was for the purpose of gathering information as a necromancer.
I knew there might be nothing to be gained here, but based on wishful thinking, I hoped there might be someone here who knew something.
Thinking about it that way, the overly strong girl in front of me seemed to fit the bill.
As a result, the words that came out of my mouth were surprising even to me.
“To meet you”
“Wha-what are you saying!” Her face turned red enough to make it seem like flames were about to burst out.
“What on earth are you talking about!”
“No, really, I think so myself.”
“That’s too sudden! That kind of thing should take more time for us to get to know each other first and be done in a romantic atmosphere!” She was clearly flustered.
But thanks to that, I finally calmed down and was able to recognize the existence in front of me.
“You are a Vampire, aren’t you”
“Knowing that and still talking normally with me like this is really interesting, dear.”
It seemed that the fighting spirit had completely disappeared from her eyes.
She lost her wings, her golden eyes turned blue and her face seemed a little calmer.
“But can you please not call me that I’m not just a vampire.”
After saying that, a black fog wrapped around her body and her clothes changed.
She was now wearing a gorgeous dress instead of the one that seemed easy to move around in.
“I’m the Vampire Lord, the existence that rules over the vampires of this land.”
“Oh… are there other vampires”
“Uh… I think so I think there are… subordinates here and there… huh…”
“Uh… was what I asked harsh”
The girl’s atmosphere had changed completely and she had hid the strong aura that she had before.
