Chapter 24 Part 2 - The Narrow-Eyed Villain of the Demon Academy

The worst and strongest villain. I became a narrow-eyed character Arsene Adel. DBT,Korean,Novel,Translation,Academy,NEVDA,Fantasy,Possession,Assassin

Rene approached me, greeting me gently, and took a handkerchief out of her pocket.


What the heck is a handkerchief? Before I could even wonder about it, Rene's hand was headed for my forehead.


Swish, swish.


And then she wiped my face, which was soaked with sweat.


It seemed a little awkward, as if it was the first time she had done something like this for someone else, but it didn't feel bad because I could sense her sincerity.


It's touching to receive such treatment from Rene, who has always been cold.


“…….”


“……?”


Rene stared at me as I smiled again.


I realized what she meant and quickly lowered my head.


"Thank you for wiping me down."


"Yeah."


Only then did Rene put the handkerchief back in her pocket as I expressed my gratitude.


Fron, who had been watching the whole scene, said in disbelief.


"She must be a woman who has hit her head hard."


Fron's sudden insult.


I was startled and looked at Rene and Fron's reactions to see if they would fight again.


Fortunately, Rene ignored the insult and looked at me.


What did Fron say to make Rene angry?


Maybe she touched Rene's sore spot.


As I was speculating about what had happened between the two of them.


"You, tell me your name."


Fron suddenly pointed at me and demanded.


"Are you referring to me?"


"Yes."


I responded to her politely, as I was accustomed to.


Fron was a member of the Seven Deadly Sins, so it was natural to show her respect. However, something felt awkward.


It was as if my body itself was against the idea of showing Fron respect.


As if a human were showing respect to a monkey.


Surely, it must be my imagination.


"My name is Adel."


"Adel, Adel."


Fron rolled the word 'Adel' around in her mouth a few times.


And then, a playful smile spread across her face.


"Not a bad name."


"Thank you."


I briefly thanked her and asked out of curiosity,


"But why are you asking me?"


What was her reason?


Was she deeply impressed by my defeat of the Sword Saint?


Judging by Fron's demeanor and tone, it didn't seem like it.


When I asked for the reason, Fron spoke confidently,


"Adel, become my slave."


"...?"


I froze with a smile still plastered on my face at the absurd proposal.


Become her slave? What was she talking about?


How dare she mention slavery to me, the creator of this world?


Anger flared up for a moment, but then my head quickly cooled down.


'But isn't my current situation no different from being a slave?'


Realizing that my current situation wasn't much different, I quickly became dejected.


"Why aren't you saying anything?"


"That..."


"You must be speechless with joy. I understand."


"No."


I shook my head.


Although Crete, who had treated me like a servant, was infuriating, I couldn't escape this bondage.


The Gu poison slumbering within me.


I had managed to remove it from my heart using the position exchange, but I couldn't completely eliminate it.


If I did something like that, Crete would be alerted.


'Can I really escape Crete's clutches in the Demon Realm?'


The answer to that question was simple.


I would never be able to escape Crete's control.


Not until I gained more power.


Therefore, Fron's proposal was naturally rejected.


More than anything, I was gradually adapting to my life as Rene's escort these days.


To be honest, I didn't want to become someone else's slave because I felt it would be a waste of the time and effort I had invested.


But.


"......"


Clang.


Rene suddenly drew her sword from her waist and pointed it at


Fron.


A look of bewilderment crossed Fron's face.


"W-what are you doing?"


"..."


"Have you truly gone mad?!"


Fron raised her mana in response to Rene's actions.


As expected of a descendant of the Seven Deadly Sins, her mana was pure and abundant.


The students' attention was once again drawn to the commotion caused by the two of them.


Amidst this noisy atmosphere, my mind became even more confused.


'How did things end up like this?'


Compared to Rene's sharp features, Fron had a relatively gentle appearance.


However, she wasn't the type to just laugh it off if someone suddenly picked a fight with her.


As a descendant of the Seven Deadly Sins, Fron would naturally want to engage in battle.


But Fron's reaction was somehow strange.


'It seems like the atmosphere is being suppressed by Rene.'


It was as if she was afraid of Rene.


Although she was a character from the original story, I didn't know what kind of personality she had, so it was difficult to judge.


One thing was for sure: she didn't seem to welcome the current situation of confrontation with Rene.


Therefore, I was about to step in and mediate their fight when,


"Next, Group 34."


Ares spoke, looking at us with a stern gaze.


Rene then lowered the sword she had pointed at Fron.


"I'll be going."


"Is it your group's turn, Miss?"


"Yes."


It seemed like the fight had been interrupted because it was Rene's group's turn.


The students clicked their tongues in disappointment, regretting that they couldn't see the fight between the two.


'These guys dare...'


I was about to say something but held myself back.


"Please come back victorious."


"Sure, but..."


Rene suddenly approached me and leaned in close.


Then, she whispered in a nonchalant voice,


"You're hiding your strength, aren't you?"


"...?"


"I'll keep it a secret."


"..."


I couldn't easily answer her last statement.


What exactly did Rene think of me?


I had given my all during the test, but to Rene's eyes, I must have seemed weak enough to think I was hiding my strength.


It was disheartening, but there was nothing I could do.


Rene knew me as the family's priest and escort.


"I'll be back."


With those words, Rene and her teammates headed down from the spectator seats.


I pushed those thoughts aside and focused on the upcoming battle.


Only the groups with members of the Seven Deadly Sins remained.


Can I finally see the abilities of the descendants of the Seven Deadly Sins?


My heart pounded with a strange excitement as my curiosity was piqued.


I've fought with Rene before and trained together, but I've never seen her true abilities.


To be precise, Rene has never needed to use her true abilities until now.


In cases like the territory of the Undead, she was able to conquer it without using her full power.


More than anything, Rene wasn't showy enough to use her full power in training.


That's why I've never seen Rene's full power.


I wonder what Rene's true abilities are.


I'm also curious about the abilities of the children who will be next.


'Let's watch it once.'


I decided to witness the moment when the descendants of the Seven Deadly Sins clashed with the Sword Saint.
