Adopting Disaster - Chapter 67 Part 1

 Imorun (1)




"Taking him to such a rough land might shock him quite a bit... Are you sure it's okay?"

Reed spoke with a worried voice.

While he was concerned about Morgan II, he was most worried about himself.

However, Adonis replied with a calm face.

"A king must not only see the good things, but also face the unpleasant ones. I thought the best way to overcome blood was to watch other people's fights. If he watches a blood-boiling battle, he will undoubtedly be able to overcome it."

"Hmm..."

Before holding a sword, the children of swordsmen often watch hunting or gladiator games to get used to blood.

In fact, Adonis had also trained through such methods.

'Such a kid is afraid of frogs...'

When Morgan II mentioned frogs, Adonis, who had slapped his buttocks, spoke with a serious face.

He tried his best to hold back his laughter that seemed to burst out.

"You may think I'm taking him to a barren land, but it's also a place that knight trainees must visit."

"Indeed, there's no better place to make a name for oneself."

Popular gladiators occasionally got appointed as nobles' escorts and rose to prominence.

As it was the best place to recruit talent, there were nobles and military factions looking for talents there.

The story of wandering knights gaining fame through adventures in various places was now outdated.

Imorun was the best place now.

Although countless people lost their lives, it was a very efficient method compared to wandering.

"I originally intended to entrust this task to other knights... but I feel a little relieved that you, Tower Master, are interested."

"Does that mean you, Adonis, will not be going?"

"Yes. Unfortunately, it's not stable enough for both of us to leave our positions now."

"I see."

It was a situation that he could fully understand.

"Can you please accompany His Majesty?"

Reed bit his lower lip slightly upon hearing that.

He didn't want to go.

However, he couldn't refuse as it was a kind of task to build friendly relations with the Hupper Kingdom, and to gain favor from Morgan II.

"I understand."

"Thank you, Tower Master."

Adonis smiled faintly.

Well, if she smiles like that, what can I do?

* * *

Imorun.

Originally a place where natives brought slaves to fight forcibly, it has now become a complete concept as professional fighters gather to participate for money.

A city of gladiators and entertainment, Imorun.

As a place where nobles gathered to enjoy various entertainments, it was also a city with many thieves and robbers.

'Honestly, I'm a bit uneasy by myself...'

He may be a Tower Master-level mage, his skills were lacking compared to other Tower Masters.

There was a significant difference between Level 4 and 5, which is why Reed had gone all-in on magic engineering.

'I think I should take one more person with me.'

The most reliable person would be Adonis, but since it wasn't a situation where she could leave her position at the same time as Morgan II, she was excluded.

He considered other knights, but there were none who could really help, even if they were just noticeable.

'The people I know are the most trustworthy, though.'

Who could Reed trust?

Reed was lost in thought with his arms crossed on his office desk.

"Hmm..."

At that moment, someone knocked on the door and entered.

A half-dragon with dark blonde hair and intimidating horns.

She walked in with a squint and called Reed with a dragging voice.

"Tower Master~ I brought the documents for approval. There seem to be no problems with the content, so I think you just need to stamp it."

"Alright, but are you suffering from spring fever?"

"Nope! This is just how I am!"

Her brisk voice echoed.

That way of speaking wouldn't last long either.

She was still a fun girl to tease.

'Phoebe...'

A woman who single-handedly suppressed six mages and blocked the path of the kingdom's knights.

And she played the role of a mid-boss, not inferior to the main boss in <Disaster 7>.

'She would definitely be reliable.'

Reed asked Phoebe, who handed over the documents.

"Phoebe."

"Yes?"

"Do you know Imorun?"

"Imorun... you mean? Well... if it's a snack, I'll get it for you right away!"

"It's not food. It's a city of gladiators. I have to go there, and I'd like you to come with me this time."

"That's right... Huh? What did you just say...?"

Thinking she misheard, Reed repeated his answer.

"I said I have to go to Imorun and I want you to come with me."

"Ah, is the lady going too?"

"No, it's just you."

"Me, alone? You-you-you mean I'm needed! You're saying Phoebe is needed!"

"...Yes. But why are you so excited?"

Reed didn't understand why Phoebe was flustered.

Phoebe quickly waved her hands.

"No, no!"

"Anyway, we'll go to Imorun tomorrow. Just for the day..."

"Oh, so I just have to finish everything today?"

"Huh? No, tomorrow's work will be postponed to the day after..."

"I'll get it done right away! With all my heart and soul! I'll finish tomorrow's work today! I'll clear everything!"

Despite Reed's plan to postpone tomorrow's work to the day after, Phoebe was burning with enthusiasm.

"Do that."

Once the sword is drawn, you have to cut something.

Reed just left her alone.

That day, the Silence Tower had to do unexpected extra work.

  1. Phoebe's nose could be burning because of perfume as we speak. Hopefully nothing bad happen because of it.
