TL: Okay, after this chapter, I plan to do 21 TAS chapters + 9 TGTBGAM chapters (Yes, technically I’m on my break now. Technically). This should clear the sponsored chapters and any backlog.

Chapter 48 – Chaos
The entire place was dark. Some of the female nobles’ shrieks could be heard all over the place. Brendel and Roen were the first to pull out their swords from their robes, while Ciel and Batum’s reactions were slower to pull their weapons out.

It was not uncommon to see people in Vaunte using Elementary Light magic, and some of the bigger cities had Light crystals installed into the street lamps. Even Roen had a ring like that, but he did not rush to bring it up. Anyone who raised up a light source in this darkness would only become a target.
But sometimes reality went against wishes.
Right when Brendel thought there was no immediate danger, the Thorn of Light glimmered once. He paused slightly and looked at it, and realized the sword was glowing brighter with every second. The next moment, a dazzling flash from the sword lit up the entire area clearly.

Their hands were within their robes, indicating that there were weapons hidden there.
[Enemies and not allies.]
Brendel did not say anything but held up his left hand decisively and aimed below him. A series of bolts flew from the hidden crossbow from his sleeve, and they struck on the nearest robed figure.
