I Am the Monarch – Chapter 14 : Travias spear (5)

The situation changed.
The tied people were freed and the slave merchants replaced them instead.
They looked at the many cavalrymen that appeared and lost all of their fighting spirit.
More than anything else, looking at Joey’s head getting smashed had the biggest effect.

“We have to take this guys to Bason village.”

Dosen looked at the slave merchants and frowned.
Bason village was the only one that had the right facilities to keep these guys around this zone.
Perhaps there would be more, but that was all the information he had.

“Squads from the 1st to the 4th come with me to take these bastards to Bason village.”
“Yes!”

The squad commanders replied in one voice.
Dosen looked at the commander of the 5th squad, Ched.

“Ched. You take the villages people and go to Trum village.”

An exhausted face could be seen from the villagers.
They needed a break first.
Ched put on a troubled face.

“I don’t know the exact position for Trum village.”
“You can ask that to the vill……”

Dosen talked up to there and closed his mouth.
The villages people couldn’t take the role of guiding.

‘I can’t do anything about it.’

Dosen’s eyes look at Roan.

“Roan”
“Yes.”

Roan, that was taking care of the condition of the villagers, replied and approached him.

“You move together with the 5th squad.”
“Yes. Understood.”

At Dosen’s words, Roan bent.
A smile appeared in his mouth.

‘I will be able to go and find the travias spear.’

If he was to go to Bason village together with Dosen, he would have to leave the spear for after that.

‘Well, it wouldn’t matter anyways.’

The travias spear would only be found after 17 years, anyways.
And of course, the one that had found it back then was himself.
Soon, Dosen and the cavalrymen under him took the merchant slaves and went to the north.
When they couldn’t be seen anymore because of the dense forest, Ched called Roan.

“Roan. You take the front.”
“Yes.”

Roan replied shortly and moved his steps.
It was obvious for him, but the other cavalrymen also didn’t ride their horses.
They had given it to the village people whose condition was bad.

Clop. Clop.

The sound of the horse steps was heard nicely.
They got out of the dense forest, and after they walked out for a bit more, they saw a little village in the borders of a hill.

“It’s Trum village.”

Roan said after turning back to look at Ched.

“It’s a smaller village than what I have thought.”

Ched seemed to be surprised at the village he saw.

‘And because of that, no one could think that the travias spear would be in a place like this.’

Roan smiled bitterly and moved his feet.
As they approached the village, some guys with big bodies appeared.

“Who are you?”

They seemed to be surprised at the soldiers that were armored and with weapons that appeared at the village.

“Hello. I’m the commander of the 7th squad of rose troop that belongs to the Rinse kingdom.”

He shook his hands and explained everything.

“Ah! For that to…….”

The guys got surprised and put on a regrettable face.
They guided them inside the village along a bright smile.

“We will prepare you something to eat.”

With the order of the head of the village, some women prepared food and drinks.
They knew that if it wasn’t for the rose troop, they would also have been taken by the slave merchants.

“We are really thankful. Really thankful.”

The people that seeked safety after they got in the village sent thanking messages to the soldiers of the rose troop.

“No, no. We only did the obvious thing.”

Ched shook his hands and smiled brightly.
In that time, Roan met Lia’s parents and told them the things Lia had done.

“You say that the reason we were able to get free was because of Lia?”
“Yes. Lia asked our commander to save the villages people. She is a really intelligent and brave kid.”

At Roan’s words, Lia’s parents put on an expression that seemed to have all of the happiness in the world.
Tears gathered in their eyes.
Then, Ched’s voice was heard.

“After one hour of break, return to the squad.”

At his words, Roan stood up.
He approached Ched and whispered in a low voice.

“I have come to Trum village in a really long while. Can I go to sightsee the village for some time?”
“Really?”

Ched nodded.

‘He should have been bright around this zone because he had already come here.’

And there also were the merits Roan had accomplished, so he pleasantly permitted him.

“Come after you slowly look at it.”
“Thank you.”

Roan bent his head and moved his feet towards the inner side of the village.

‘Small villages like this one won’t change much even after a long while.’

He had visited Trum village after 17 years.
But the Trum village from back then wasn’t that much different to the Trum village he was seeing right now.
He pretended to be looking at the place, and moved towards the north.

‘It’s really amazing.’

Roan said after looking at a huge tree that was outside of the fences in the north.
The tree was so thick that three men had to surround it by holding hands, and it was twice as tall compared to the other trees.
On top of all, every time the wind blew and made the branches and the leaves collide, it tickled his ear.

Feeling strange.
Roan placed his hand on the strong and huge tree that was in front of him.
A rugged feeling.
Roan moved around it while still having his hand on it.

Touch.

In the tips of his fingers, he felt a fine bump.

‘It’s here.’

Roan’s eyes shone.
He touched the bum with the tip of his fingers and stuck close to the tree.
He scratched the  tree with his fingers.
At that moment, a piece of wood falls in his palm.
A piece of wood that was as long as an adult arm.
In the exterior, it seemed to be an ordinary piece of wood, but actually it was a really hard piece of stone.

Roan put his hand on the place the piece of wood fell.
A secret place inside that huge tree.
What came inside of that was a strange shaped oxidized stick.

‘I found it.’

Roan put that stick in his waist and put back the fallen piece of wood in the tree.

Along with the grounding noise of the stone, the tree trunk recovered its original shape.
Roan evaded the eyes of the other people and sat down the tree.

A stick that was smaller than an adult’s arm.
It was as thick as a wrist, and although it was originally black in colour, now that it was oxidized, it was seen as a bright red.

‘The travias spear that was said to be made with a dragon’s magic metallic scale, dionium.’

Roan grabbed the end of the stick and squeezed it as if he was squeezing the laundry.

“Ugh.”

His face turned red and veins pops in his wrists.
After he put in all of his strength for a long while, a strange sound was heard.

Creeak.

The sound of the oxidized parts breaking.
The tip of the spears separates in half and turns.

Clink.

Along with the sound of saw tooths running, the tip of the spear separated.

Cheeng.

At the same time, the sound of metal was heard and the blade of a sword raised.
Excluding a handful of length, sharp blades raised all around the stick.
Just like you are looking at a blade without defensive systems.
However you saw it, you didn’t see it as a spear.

‘It’s useless if you don’t know how to use mana for this guy.’

Only by inserting mana does this guy show it’s original appearance.
Roan smiled bitterly and twisted the tip of the spear in the opposite side.

Cheeng.

Along with the sound of metal, it became to be a stick that was covered in bright rust.
Roan stood up from the place with a satisfied expression.

‘Wait for a moment. When I learn how to use mana, I will use you without spare.’

He put the travias spear in his waist and smiled.
Roan’s sights are directed to the south.

‘Potter region. If I go there, my life will change.’

However, now wasn’t it.
If he went now, it would be meaningless.

‘Let’s wait until summer.’

Until then, he bulks up his body while subjecting the monsters in Pedian’s plain.
It was better to keep accumulating merits and have a stable position.

‘I still remember the subjugations of the monsters in Pedian’s plain freshly.’

A battle that was really good to accumulate merits.
At least, he would be able to get promoted to squad commander or sub squad commander.

‘Good. Step by step, let’s walk it diligently!’

Now, he won’t make stupid choices.
In his past life, those stupid choices accumulated and he lived a mess of a life.
At that time, one thought passed through his head.

“Ah! Now that I see, that guy was also there!”
