Requiem (5)

At the princess’s command, the knights drew their long swords and lined up to face the enemy. The witches, on the other hand, stood with Brendel. The large saber-toothed Crystal Wight swooped in front of them but to everyone’s surprise, the monsters were moving towards the darkness on the other end as if they hadn’t seen them.

What’s going on? Everyone turned their heads in shock when they saw the Crystal Wights rush forward without stopping, disappearing into the darkness. Soon, only a faint rustling sound remained.

This scenario confused not just the group of knights; even Brendel and the witches around him were a little confused. Most monsters were vicious and kill people. There must be a reason for their strange behavior.

“They… seem to be running away?” Princess Gryphine, who stood behind Brendel, whispered in a somewhat confused manner.

Yes, they are running away! As though a lightning bolt had crossed his mind, Brendel reacted. His expression changed immediately. Each of those large Crystalized Saber-toothed Spiders were no less than a Gold Ranker, what else was there that could make them run for their lives?

The answer to that was fairly obvious.

There was actually another treasure there, but Brendel wasn’t in the mood to think about it at that moment. He led everyone through the strange rocky stalactites, avoiding the huge cobwebs that connected almost the entire underground passage. It wasn’t long before everyone heard a rustling sound coming from behind, like a large hand rubbing against yarn.

Princess Gryphine subconsciously glanced back and saw four pairs of blood-red eyes in the darkness, each one the size of a fist. She couldn’t help but let out a yelp in fright. Her legs weakened, almost causing her to fall.

Brendel was quick-eyed and hurried to catch her. “Don’t look back, she’s looking for us too.”

“Is that the Mother of Spiders?” It was only after the princess had calmed the fear in her heart that she asked in a quiet voice. “Yes, that’s her,” Brendel replied with a calm nod.
