Bonus chapter. Thanks for the support on Ko-fi

---------------------- 

To Destroy Evil (1)


In front of the entrance to the Silence Tower.

"Please go back."

Phoebe's usual languid tone was completely gone.

The mages of the tower hate the priests.

They were responding thoroughly to that notion.

On the other side, the saintess of meditation, Ishell, apologized in a soft tone.

"I'm sorry, Deputy Tower Master. I know it's rude, but I have to come here today."

"You should know that the current situation is not good enough to exchange greetings with the people of the Order?"

"Of course, I know."

"Then there's no need to say more. Please step back."

A cold atmosphere, as if a fight would break out any moment.

Phoebe, glaring with golden eyes, and Isel, smiling.

"It's a relief that Rachel didn't come. She's impatient by nature, so she could have caused a problem. Well, that girl can't speak, so the conversation wouldn't have gone well anyway."

Isel kept smiling.

There was no sign of her backing down.

Gradually, Phoebe didn't want to endure any longer.

Tick-tock, tick-tock.

The threatening sound that came every time Phoebe's fingers moved.

As she showed off her un-mage-like skills, the escort knights prepared to respond.

"What's going on?"

"Ah, Tower Master."

The tense atmosphere crumbles.

Phoebe's distorted face returned to its gentle state.

"If the saintess comes, report it first."

"I'm sorry. I tried to handle it on my own, as you seemed busy."

"I understand your intentions. Now step back and watch."

Phoebe bowed politely and stepped back.

Her refined behavior, on the one hand, frightened Reed as well.

The mark of the Althea Order on the crown she wore on her head.

There was a sun and three ascending lights, and seven descending lights.

As the seven lights spread below, they formed a shield-like shape.

That was the very appearance of mercy shown by the Alte Order.

And the symbol of that, the saintess Ishell, smiled benevolently beneath it.

"It's an honor to meet you again, Tower Master of Silence."

"Hello, Saintess. It's the first time since we met in Cohen."

"Hehe, that's right."

Reed didn't laugh.

"I didn't expect the leader of a tower to come down and greet me personally."

"It's just a coincidence. I didn't know the Saintess was visiting here either."

"You said I could come anytime, didn't you? I wanted to keep that promise."

"Have you already come even though the 6th album recording hasn't started yet?"

"It's not because of that, hehe."

"Then you must go back."

Reed answered firmly.

"To put it bluntly, I shouldn't be involved with the Saintess right now. Even if our tower walks a different path from other mages, there's a limit."

"You mean you shouldn't get entangled with the order."

"Yes, especially now more than ever."

And the fact that the subject was the Saintess was crucial.

She was the only one with the ability to detect demons, and showing a close relationship with her at such a time was the worst.

"I won't ask what business you have here. I'd appreciate it if you'd just go back without saying anything."

"I came to inform you, Tower Master."

"I said I wouldn't listen."

"You must be curious about how to find demons. I'm sure you are."

"Everyone is curious. But that's not enough to ignore our relationship."

"Are you that afraid of the other Tower Masters?"

Reed shook his head.

"No, it's just that I have no reason to trust the Saintess that much."

She had built up a devout and virtuous image, but there was no past connection between them.

They had only met for a day.

And that was the end of a brief conversation that lasted less than 10 minutes.

"I don't have any bad feelings towards the Saintess. However, there are things I cannot break for the sake of my tower's existence. I'll take my leave now."

Reed politely greeted her.

No matter what she said, he didn't intend to look back.

"Peon, that man is dead."

Reed's steps came to a halt.

'What did this woman just say?'

He looked back at Ishell, unable to swallow his confusion.

"What did you say?"

"Pheon, I'm talking about the man you, the Tower Master of Silence, captured. You were planning to hand him over to the Tower Master of Jade recently, and today was the day of escort, right?"

"......How did you know that?"

Reed showed a genuinely displeased expression.

Isel just smiled.

"Because I killed him."

In a saintly and merciful manner.

"By my sister's hand."
