- 74 - Two-Thousand-Years Longest Wish (Side: Ebelheid)
In the innermost part of the Zeshum Ruins, Ebelheid placed his hand on the crystal that was embedded in the pedestal.
In response to Ebelheid’s magical power as a descendant of Zeshum, the crystal emitted a violet-blue light.
With that, the entire ruin began to shake loudly.
Ebelheid’s hands trembled in excitement.
Finally, his lifelong desire, the time for the reconstruction of Zeshum had arrived.
He wondered if Abel would reach him before the Zeshum Ruins were fully activated. That was the only thing Ebelheid was concerned about.
But he couldn’t seem to get past the Zeshum Beast Golem on the road, and it seemed that he couldn’t show himself to Ebelheid.
Although he knew there was no way a human could be a match for a magical weapon, Ebelheid was still relieved.
When several Zeshum Golems were activated at the same time, he despaired of the inexcusable nature of the situation. The common sense that had been cultivated by two hundred long years had completely collapsed in him. It was etched in his head and heart that that little boy could do anything he wanted at that time.
Eventually, the magic that had been carved into the wall began to glow, and the wall split off to the left and right, revealing a staircase.
Ebelheid looked at the back of his own hand, which he was holding up to the crystal.
A shadowgraph of a gryphon spreading its wings came into view. It is the crest of Zeshum.
This is the proof that he has gained control of the ruins and at the same time become the ruler of the whole world.
Ebelheid ran up the stairs.
At the end of the stairs was the top floor of the ruins, the rooftop.
It was a special sit to look down on the world.
In answer to Ebelheid’s words, the ruins of Zeshum – the floating fortress of Zeshum, the ‘Bow of God’ – began to emerge.
As it was, Ebelheid moved the floating fortress to the east.
First, I’ll fire an Arrow of God in the city of Lomarn. With a city the size of that place, it can be turned into a burnt-out area with just one shot. It’s the perfect performance.
I’ll show my power to the people around me and threaten them, gather the magic stones, and accumulate the magic power to release the Arrow of God. That will be the immediate goal.
Ebelheid put his hand on the edge of the rooftop and looked down at the ground.
He had come to the top of the clouds, so there was a mist hanging over his vision.
The grasslands as far as the eye could see, the city in the distance, the mountains. From now on, everything would be all mine. No, not just this tiny thing. Alfheim, the Sky Country that the descendants of Zeshum have resented, envied and missed for generations, will be on my hand.
My head heats up at the thought, and a smile escapes me.
“Father, Zeshum’s ancestors! Keep your eyes on me! Finally, the time has come to fulfill our 2,000-year long wish! The day when I will be the absolute ruler of Sky Country, Alfheim…… no, of the whole world!”
Ebelheid stopped laughing high after shouting that and then stared at the heavens.
At the end of this great sky is where the Sky Country, Alfheim is.
“Wait for me…… I’m at a height where I can reach the clouds. Your heads are just in the next corner.”
At the exact moment that Ebelheid reached out of the edge, the space around it distorted.
It was a precursor to the collapse of the wards that had automatically developed around the levitating fortress as soon as it was activated.
A moment later, a violent sound of destruction could be heard. The cover of magic power that was made transparent shattered and vaporized. The floating fortress shook greatly.
It had been attacked by something. It was impossible to shatter the wards of the floating fortress with a single blow. It should not be.
Ebelheid felt his own blood quickly recede.
No way, he thought, looking down at the ground.
He could see the Zeshum Beast Golem running on the ground with two humans on board.
One half of the two had skin so lightly pigmented that it was hard to believe it was a living person, and it carried crimson eyes that were full of magic power. It resembles the undead king, Lich, a wreck that has never lost its magic power even after death. In the past, warriors feared him as the god of death on the battlefield, a characteristic of the Marren tribe. It was definitely Abel.
It runs parallel to the floating fortress.
Fast. It’s also ridiculously fast.
Obviously, it’s incomparably faster than the traditional Zeshum Beast Golem.
In fact, the strong body made of the ores that our ancestors smelted and created, I found out that they couldn’t bear the speed and screamed.
The space around it was distorted again, and a ward covered the perimeter of the floating fortress.
It’s the automatic repair function of the warding that the floating fortress has.
Noticing this, Ebelheid wipes the sweat on his forehead.
The warding’s automatic repair function should either be interfered with from the flow of magic power or destroy all the warding wards around the floating fortress or it won’t stop.
The former requires us to figure out the flow of magic power, and the latter also requires us to determine the location and number of wards. Careful analysis is essential for both.
“Hmph, if you had escaped, I wouldn’t have bothered to chase them…””
The floating fortress is loaded with a variety of magical weapons.
There’s no need to use the Arrow of God.
To begin with, Arrow of God has too much magical power drainage. If one shot was fired, the rest of the plan would suffer at once.
In answer to his words, the floating fortress opens up here and there, revealing a cannon.
“I didn’t think you planned to drop this floating fortress’s bow with a single golem. It is true that you are a monster, I’ll admit that.”
A half-hearted fortress could have been sunk by Abel alone.
Ebelheid seriously thought so.
But unfortunately, the floating fortress is a weapon used to conquer a whole country of monstrous people, the High Elves.
They are clearly different in scale.
That attack just now is probably Abel’s hidden card
Although it was of great power, the wards that were broken by it have already been fully repaired.
As long as this ward’s automatic repair function is in place, there is no way that the floating fortress can be dropped.
As Ebelheid pointed his hand towards Abel, all the cannons were aimed at him.
At the same time as Ebelheid shouted, a huge metal ball flew from the direction Abel was in.
It wasn’t just one, but a large number of them.
The metal sphere swallowed and drowned out the magic bullets, and yet it still did not lose its power.
The wards of the floating fortress were shattered by the leading blow.
There was no way to wait for a moment to redevelop the wards, and metal balls flew in one after another. They dug, gouged, pierced, and destroyed the floating fortress here and there.
Armor was stripped from the walls that hadn’t been scratched for two thousand years, cannons were smashed one by one, and large holes were left in the walls.
Black smoke rises from all over the floating fortress. It’s due to a weapons malfunction.
“S-, stop…… I will use the bow of the Floating Fortress’s bow to destroy the world…… the sky country of Alfheim……”
The culmination of Zeshum’s technology, the culmination of the clan’s desire for two thousand years, and Eberheid himself, of the long life of the elves. The surfacing fortress that he had put everything into was about to decay less than ten minutes after it was activated.
Something salty was rising from the back of Ebelheid’s throat.
He staggered while holding his mouth and fell to his knees on the spot.
“It-, it’s a dream. This is just a dream. It must be.”
Since when, since when have I been dreaming?
Since you activated the floating fortress? Is it too lukewarm to call him a demon, was it from the time I met that Marren sorcerer?
No, this is not the time to escape reality.
The Arrow of God.
With the Arrow of God, I’m going to turn this whole area into a clearing with Abel.
Ebelheid knew that he was about to do something stupid.
Pointing a weapon at an individual that was supposed to bring a country down was a complete wasting.
But there was nothing else left to do.
If I shot the Arrow of God here, it would greatly derail his plans for the rest of the day.
Now that most of the magic weapons had been destroyed, in the worst-case scenario, I would be able to take on a city, a country, and I’ll have to scrape magic stone with just a complete bluff.
I’ve never heard of such a pathetic ruler. I don’t think we’ll be very successful.
But anyway, I have to remove the obstacles in front of us now.
“Arrow of God”
Ebelheid exclaimed as he raised himself up.
