084. Nightmare (3)
Hwion thought that Razier might have already received the power of the devil before receiving the stigma of the sea god. The extraordinary ability he showed last time was not the only thing that was suspicious.
‘Sea gods and demons. Can I make a contract with both?’
Sea gods are beings with divine power, and demons are beings with evil magic. However, since humans are a race that embraces both good and evil, there is no set rule that one must choose only one.
Therefore, if he is loved by two beings that are unlikely to coexist, all the questions surrounding him will be resolved.
It was the moment when Hwion nodded his head, who came to the conclusion closest to the truth.
“What are you doing?”
Hwion, startled by the sudden burst of screams, grabbed his sword and ran for a month. Something like a smooth snake was crawling on the prince’s ankle.
“S… … .”
‘Snake? Spider? What!’
The moment Hwion got closer, Razier burst into rage.
“You’re surprised, you damn spaghetti bastard!”
– Hi? look here I like Noodle Dita.
Spaghetti armed with cream sauce was wrapped around Razier’s ankle and bowing shyly.
– Hey, why don’t you just take a bite?
“It’s okay, let it go.”
– Do you need a fork? I can give you a spoon if you want.
“It should appear on a plate in the first place. What kind of spaghetti is crawling on the floor? Are you a snake?”
Hearing Razier’s harsh tone, Spaghetti was shocked and shook her noodles.
– Unbelievable. It is taboo to look at noodles and talk about snakes or earthworms!
“What is he saying now. If you are food, isn’t it basic to keep cleanliness?”
– … … !
Spaghetti, who lost in the logical confrontation, let go of his ankle without strength. The cream sauce on the bottom of his pants dripped down to the floor. The sauce was uncomfortably hot.
Razier ripped off his pants and fired a confirmation shot.
“The noodles are served in a bowl just like noodles. It crawls on the floor without a bowl, so of course I hate to eat it.”
– Oh, no! My dishes are being washed right now. You said you’ll be back soon!
“Do not lie.”
– Whoa, whoa.
Eventually, the cream spaghetti started to cry. It had no eyes, but a thick sauce oozes out and wets the floor.
Razier walked briskly, not caring whether the noodles were crying or not.
Hwion, who followed him, no longer complained about what he was doing.
The reason Hion questioned Razier was about the facts that he should at least know as a knight who was his closest assistant.
The knights who paid their allegiance in exchange for their wishes did not doubt or seek reasons for their actions. It didn’t matter if he was a real demon.
Razier glanced at Hion, who gave him trust in a simple way, and muttered to himself.
‘Hmm. He kind of resembles Ray in that respect.’
If he had any questions, Tay tended to ask questions. When you order it to shut down, it’s quiet for a while, then at some point it starts to flutter again. Even so, it would move voluntarily if it judged that the owner needed something without a separate order.
On the other hand, Hwion is a personality that is right in the middle between Tay and Lay, but looking at it, it was a bit unusual. If he wanted to be stupid, he was keen on getting out of the way, and if he wanted something simple, he would not give up and persistently tried to find out if he had a question.
Lazier, who had been thinking up to that point, stopped and stopped walking.
Hwion, who stopped following, waited for the command, but Razier needed time to organize his thoughts.
‘Did Ray also come in here?’
Originally, Demon Dragons and Demon Dogs were not affected by the Sleeping Skills of Dream Demons.
The technique the dreamer draws into dreams is called ‘sleep incense’, but this name doesn’t mean the real scent. The magical energy emitted by the dreamers is like a scent, so it naturally penetrates into the body and causes the person to lose consciousness.
However, the highest ranks, who are like demon dragons, resist the demon’s magic that they are trying to infiltrate by themselves. Demon dogs are also strong beings, but the problem is that these days, Rey’s condition has been on the verge of death.
‘If it’s the current guy, he doesn’t have the strength to resist Magi.’
He insisted on staying by the owner’s side to the squeaky subject, but he was weak enough that he couldn’t even win against Hwion right now.
Without further ado, Razier put his finger to his mouth.
Hwi-on looked at him, startled, as he whistled out of nowhere.
When there was a loud noise, the birds sitting among the trees flew away. From the blood dripping roast to the crispy one, they were beautiful steak birds that colored the sky with various colors.
‘It’s really unreal.’
While Hion blankly stared at the flying stakes drifting into the sky, Razier waited patiently. If Rey isn’t in here, it won’t respond to this sound, but if it’s somewhere, it’ll definitely hear it and run.
After waiting for a while, Ragier took 15 breaths and exhaled, but when Rey did not appear, he moved without any regrets.
“… … ? Yes.”
The dreams created by the new demons were like children’s fantasy, but it wasn’t a very pleasant space. So it’s fortunate that the sick Ray isn’t here.
A familiar barking sound was heard over the back of Lazier’s head as he gave up and walked.
A red dog that ran frantically appeared through the bushes. The dog licked its tongue and panted as it approached Razier.
“Good job, Ray.”
He stroked her with praise and happily put her head in her hands.
“You were also in here.”
Razier muttered bitterly. The fact that Suha, whom I trusted and cherished, had passed the threshold of death and became weaker came into contact with my skin, and I felt compelled.
This loyal dog was simply grateful that he had met his master rather than that he had been weakened. Even now, he just closed his eyes and accepted his hand.
“Majesty. Do you know a dog?”
“okay. It’s Ray.”
“If it’s Ray, then… … .”
A red-haired loyal servant who recently started to watch over Prince Razier’s ‘dog’. He was neither a knight nor a servant, but for some reason he was a suspicious man who was not awkward at the position of an escort who guarded his back like a shadow.
“That’s the Ray you know.”
“Yes? Is he a wizard?”
“no. Hmm, almonds and sedna. It’s hard to understand if you say something similar to that.”
Even a sorcerer could not perform the magic of transforming a human into an animal. So far, only Sedna has been able to do that, albeit clumsily.
Hwion, who had that fact scratched his head, looked down at Rei.
“Shinsu… … ?”
All the things related to Prince Razier were nonsensical, so it wasn’t surprising anymore.
To be precise, it is correct to say that it is a magical beast, not a divine beast, but Razier did not have to correct that fact. Instead, he asked Ray, making eye contact.
“Lay. Can you find the door out of here?”
Rey poked her nose into the ground for a moment and sniffed.
Rey barked once and started running. Although he lost his strength and became weak, his innate sense was very good as his essence was a demon dog.
Razier used Rey as a detection dog to traverse the forest.
Ignoring the disgusting food that kept talking to them to eat them, they ran, and it wasn’t long before they reached the center of the forest.
The yellow pampas grass that had grown up to the waist smelled like freshly baked bread.
And in the meantime, I saw a giant tree with leaves spread out like a mushroom.
“Lay. Is this tree?”
Ray wandered around the tree round and round.
It was a very large and colorful tree. Among the stretched branches, there were abundant leaves and strong fruits.
The shape of the fruit resembles an elongated gourd, but the color is golden and shiny.
“It looks like it has an ordinary fruit hanging on it.”
Hwion reached out and picked a fruit from the tree. Lightly held in his hand, the fruit was reminiscent of a ripe yellow pear. The smell was good and the feel was cool, so the juice seemed to be very sweet and cold.
As I was looking at the fruit resembling a pear in my hand, the thirst I had forgotten suddenly came.
‘I’m so thirsty. A bite of fruit would be ok… … .’
The enchanting scent emanating from the fruit shook her cloudy reason.
Hwion brought the fruit to his lips as if possessed.
But before he could even bite his lip, he felt a burning pain in the back of his hand. Razier hit the back of his hand and dropped the fruit.
Then, like a lie, my mind came back. The fruit that I had missed from my hand rolled down through the pampas grass.
“Get your mind right. Do you want to be locked up here forever?”
Hwion bowed his head in embarrassment at himself, who had fallen into the temptation of a dream during that short time.
“Your Majesty, thank you.”
“I didn’t want to see them gossip in front of me, so I helped. Don’t be deceived again and find the door.”
Hwion, who answered with a gloomy answer, hurriedly began to examine the tree.
There seemed to be no such thing as a door on the wooden pole close to the ground.
“If there is a door on this tree, it must be on the higher side.”
“I’ll go up and look for it.”
Because it was such a huge tree, if you just looked up, you could not see anything because it was covered with branches and leaves.
Razier responded lightly to Hwion, who was getting ready to climb the tree.
“What are you going to do?”
“There is no high place to be seen from here.”
“So, what are you going to do? Just cut it with a knife and knock it over.”
“… … !”
It was a simple and clear answer. It would be impossible for a normal person to cut down such a giant tree, but it is not difficult for the knight Hwion.
“But if the door on the tree breaks down.”
“It’s not broken. never.”
Believing Razier’s rant, Hwion raised his sword.
A neatly cut tree thumped and fell to the floor.
However, the door was not visible even from the top of the cut wooden post.
“Lay. Is the door really here?”
Ray was just sitting at his feet like a normal dog, watching his shit.
Razier, who ran into difficulties, was seriously contemplating what to do with it, but Hwion suddenly spoke up.
“Maybe it’s that door.”
Suddenly, Hwion’s finger pointed to the tree stump that had been cut off.
“Is it white and round?”
Razier lifted his head and checked the direction Hwion was pointing with his hand. There was a round door at the base of the tree where the tree ring should have been drawn.
There was no handle and it was a sliding door that opened.
“I think the tree itself was a door.”
As I got closer and knocked, the door opened and I saw a dark tunnel-like space under the tree trunk.
Razier, who looked into the dark black space, stretched out for a long time.
“Go first. Follow me.”
“Let’s go out and see.”
He jumped into the door with a simple greeting. As soon as he passed through the door, he immediately fell into the dark space.
It was an escape from the damn food heaven.
