I Am the Monarch – Chapter 13 : Travias spear (4)

“Are you kidding right now?”

Dosen got angry.
He remembered quite well Roan’s words.

<It’s Abyl’s stream. Although it is a stream, it is quite wide and deep, so it is impossible.>

He had certainly said that it was impossible.
But now he was saying that they should cross it.

“You know that we don’t have time to be joking, right?”

Even at this moment, the slave merchants were approaching Trum village.

“Of course.”

Roan got off the horse at the same time he replied.
Dosen looked directly at Roan’s eyes.

“Then are you really saying that we are going to cross this stream?”
“Yes.”

At that moment, Dosen’s and the cavalrymen’s faces contorted.
Although it was calm, this stream seemed to be certainly deep and wide.
If they didn’t have a floating bridge, then it was impossible.

‘Only now does he make trouble.’

Dosen gritted his teeth.

‘If we chase them now, won’t we be able to catch them?’

His head spun.
At that time, Roan grabbed the reins and moved his step.

Splash.

He moved around the riverbank and stopped in one place.
Dosen looked at that and frowned.

“What are you doing right now?”

Roan replied with a calm and imposing voice.

“We are going to cross this bridge.”
“Bridge? Where’s that bridge?”

Dosen frowned.
Roan moved towards the stream.

Splash.

The water filled up to his waist in an instant.

“5 years ago, a bridge used to be here, in the place i’m standing right now.”

Dosen’s face turned red.

“Are you telling me that we should cross a bridge that disappeared?”

Roan shook his head.

“The bridge is still here.”

A confident voice and an imposing face.
Dosen frowned.

“What does that mean?”

Roan smiled faintly and replied.

“The bridge is still here. Only that the water in this stream rose.”
“Ah…..”

At that moment, a low exclamation flowed from the mouths of Dosen and the cavalrymen.
Roan continued speaking.

“This bridge is under the water. But fortunately, it’s still fine. If you walk correctly, you will be able to cross this stream.”

He pointed at the calmly flowing Abyl stream.
Dosen and the cavalrymen looked at Roan with a surprised expression.

‘How does he know about this?’
‘Is it a place he had visited before?’
‘Even if that is the case, is it possible to know of a bridge that’s under water?’

Many questions popped.
Roan shrugged his shoulders and urged.

“Are you going to keep standing there?”
“Ah!”

Only then did Dosen and the cavalrymen get ahold of themselves and dismounted the horse.
They grabbed the reins and stood in front of the riverbank.

“The bridge is really slippery because it’s deep under water. And there may even be some broken parts. You have to tap it with the tip of your spear and cross it slowly.”

Roan moved the spear in his right hand.
Everyone gulped dry saliva and nodded.

“Then, I will take the lead.”

Roan took in deep breaths and moved his steps.

Ziip.

The slippery rock bridge is felt under his feet.
He tapped the bridge in front of him with the tip of the spear and slowly moved his feet.
And the water soon reached his waist.

‘It’s fine. That time, it even reached to my chest.’

Roan took in a deep breath.

‘There’s no need to be nervous. You already crossed it once.’

17 years from now on, Roan crosses this place with a person he thought to be a friend.

‘Son of a bitch.’

That bastard he thought as a friend.
Now that he thought of his face, he started to curse him.

‘The guy that snatched the travias spear from me.’

Roan had made many wrong choices in his past life, but the worst of them was entrusting the spear to the person he thought as friend.

‘That bastard took this to the Byron kingdom and received a title of count.’

That guy roamed the battlefield with the spear and got a nickname called spear ghost.

‘Even so, he didn’t become a match to Pierce, that was called as spear god.’

Thinking about it like this, he once again felt Pierce’s might.

Splash.

The water that reached his chest made his thoughts go away.

‘Let’s focus on crossing this stream.’

Roan got a hold of himself and moved step by step.

Splash. Splash.

The west wind that blows freshly raises little waves.
Roan and the hundred cavalrymen crossed the Abyl stream with a face full of nervousness.
If someone that didn’t know about this saw it, they would think that Abyl stream was really shallow.

‘The moment I reach ground it ends.’

The people that were crossing the stream felt that they were on top of the death rope.
The suffocating time flowed slowly.

Step.

Roan was the first to reach the riverbank.

Drain.

His body was really wet.

Pheew.

The war horse shakes his head and body.
The water drops that splashes.

“Kugh.”

Roan turned his head and shakes his hand.
Meanwhile, Dosen and the cavalrymen slowly reached the riverbank.
They were as wet as him.
They wanted to clean the water in the clothe, no, in the armor and the weapon but they didn’t have the leisure to do so.
Dosen quickly got on the horse and grabbed the reins.

“Let’s see the scenery next time.”
“Yes.”

Roan replied shortly and after he got on the horse, he started to ride in the front.

Dudududu.

A sound that shakes the earth.
The cavalrymen grabbed the reins and bit their lower lips.

‘It’s done now.’
‘We caught up with those bastards.’

They sticked their chests to the horse and kicked it.

Dudududu.

The hundred soldiers ride towards Trum village.

*****

“Wow, the trees are really dense.”
“Yeah. Not even sunlight passes through.”

Joey and Luce moved in the narrow forest road and checked their surroundings.
It was so quiet that it was even gloomy.
They grabbed the reins and looked back.
The fifty plus allies follow them with their horses.
Joy’s and Luce’s sights are directed beyond their allies.

“Hehehe.”

A laugh comes on itself.
The people that were tied just like tied fish.
The rope that was tightly tying the wrists and the waists followed up the other person.
And like that, the people that were tied walked with their heads low.
Even at first glance, the number surpassed the 100’s.

“We should have to come to this region in advance.”
“Yeah. There’s no security nor hunters. Kukuku.”

Joey and Luce looked at each other and laughed.
They were the heads of the slave merchants that operated in the western parts of mountain zones.

“It was a pain to confront hunters in the western parts of the mountains.”

Joey smacked his lips and shook his head.
The temperament of the hunters in mountain regions was really fierce and their skills were really good, so it wasn’t easy to confront them.
Because of that, every time they hunted people, they got out with a loss.
In the end, Joey and Luce left the mountain regions and went to the plains that were in the middle-north of the kingdom.

“If we get this much every time, we will become rich in no time.”
“Kukuku. Let’s buy a residence in the capital.”

They talked like that and kept guiding the horses.

Clop. Clop.

Clopping sounds break the silence of the forest.
Next to the narrow forest road, the woods opened.

The woods shake with the wind.

Pheew.

One of the horses of a slave merchant shakes its head and makes rough movements.

“Why are the horses like this so suddenly?”
“Yeah.”

Joey and Luce pass through the woods and pat the head of the horses.
Then, a bush that wasn’t shaking with the wind shakes roughly.

Paat!

Inside the bush, a long spear stretches.

Stretch!

“Kugh!”
“Ugh!”

Many slave merchants that were riding the horses got pierced in the sides and fell.

Whine!

The horses that got scared raised the front legs and cried roughly.

“Wha, what is it!”
“What’s happening!”

Joey and Luce looked back and yelled.

Shang!

The remaining slave merchants took out their swords from their waists.
A group appeared from the bushes as if they were waiting for it.
They got in and took place between the slave merchants and the tied people.

“Who, who……..”

The people that were tied asked with a small voice.
The one that was in the front of these people smiled brightly and replied.

“We are the rose troop that belongs to the 7th corps of the Rinse kingdom. We came to rescue.”

The owner of that voice filled with strength was Dosen.

“Ah!”
“We, we are alive!”

The tied people smiled brightly and yelled.
In the other hand, Joy’s and Luce’s faces contorted.

‘Dam! People from the kingdom!’
‘Where the hell did they come from?’

Joy frowned and moved one hand stealthily.
He feels the bow that was in the saddle with the tip of his fingers.

‘I fire an arrow and escape.’

The 50 subordinates would buy time for him.

Grip.
Grip.

Joey grabbed an arrow and quickly tensed the bow.
At that time, a crushing sound that was heard near his ears.

Splutter!

A horrible sound.
The spear that came flowing by cutting the ear pierced Joey’s head.

“Huk!”

Luce that was next to him, looked at Joey’s crushed head.

Split.

At the same time, another group appeared after splitting the bush.

“Whew. Fortunately, it hit.”

A teen that laughs after letting a short sigh.
He looked at the dumbfounded Luce and pulled out the spear in Joey’s head.

Crush.

Joey’s head that had half of it’s shape, got completely crushed.

“Resist or surrender?”

A voice as if he was secretly asking.

‘The decision will be taken by adjutant Dosen anyways.’

The teen that smashed Joey’s head.
It was Roan.
