After making sure there was nothing valuable in the remains of the Bone Knight, Brendel packed away the equipment and decided to stop here. There had been a greenhouse garden here previously; the mage had destroyed the portal, which caused the time and space to turn chaotic. Further ahead would be the labyrinth and while there was equipment scattered here and there, they weren’t worth it.
They returned the way they came, back to the second floor and then to the hall, just in time to meet up with Ciel and Medissa, who were coming back from their third trip to the outsides of the Mage Tower. At this time, there were only a few demonic spirits that remained in the forest. Glancing out from the tower
“Sir.” The two of them saw Brendel and greeted him politely.
Brendel didn’t answer. With his hand, he slashed through the air between himself and Medissa. Two transparent blue screens appeared. Before Ciel and Medissa entered the tower, they had both been at level 27. Now they were close to level 32. This was like jumping from an unstable silver beginner all the way to a silver intermediate rank; that was a pretty fast rate.
Only then did Brendel smile. “Well done.”
“It was fortunate that Leader discovered this tower.” Medissa answered softly, the polite smile stilled affixed to her face.
“Heh,” Ciel let out a breath and asked curiously, “But Leader must have already known that there was a high level exorcism magic array here, right? Otherwise you wouldn’t have acted so confident.”

“That kind of feeling is really too good. How about it Medissa? Do you have the same feeling?” Ciel asked as he turned around. At the same time, he snuck glances at Brendel from the corner of his eye.
“Yeah, a little.” Medissa nodded slightly.
But the sneaky way at which the young mage approached the problem made Brendel want to laugh and cry. Not only Brendel, but even the little prince looked at Ciel in confusion and contemplated whether the chief Mage serving his teacher woke up on the wrong side of the bed today.

Brendel stared at him and tapped Ciel’s forehead with his finger as he said, “That’s because you’re also a part of the Black Tower Mages. This proves that outstanding defenders think the same — unless you think you’re a stupid idiot?”
“That’s why.” Ciel agreed wholeheartedly with what his Leader said. But then he immediately thought of a new q
