========= Elman’s POV ==========
“T-these are all Potion of Dragon Strength…… And the quality of the potions!” Rono nearly bit his tongue in his shock.
The youths from Kirrlutz were unable to leave, and they had to move closer to Brendel’s camp for protection.
“Rono, what’s wrong?” Faena jumped a little.
The appearance of the wolves made her jittery, and she lowered her voice subconsciously, afraid of either attracting the monsters or Brendel.
“H-he’s treating these potions like water……” Rono could not suppress his ire and said: “If they are instead used on knights who have more potential than this strange bunch— of people.”
“What is so surprising about these potions.” Elman regarded his companion a little coldly. He had pushed Rono down to cover himself when Brendel attacked them, and even though it was an instinctive action, he knew that this act would not be forgotten or forgiven.
Explaining was pointless and a waste of time. He even thought it would even be wise to consider ending this prodigy’s future in this Dark Forest.
Rono glanced back at his ‘companion’. While Elman’s expression was one of disinterest, Rono expressed his condescension openly because of the anger and injustice he felt.
“Ignorant fool. This is a true Potion of Dragon Strength made from a dragon’s blood, or perhaps a grade that’s close to it. The filth that you drank has nothing in comparison to the youths’ potions.”
Elman secretly gritted his teeth, but he showed no changes in his expression and looked at Brendel’s men one more time, before he spoke again:
“Fine, but it’s about time we leave. There’s an opening that we can take advantage of since the wolves’ attention is on Aouine’s men. We won’t be able to escape if we waste any more time.”
The trip was a mistake. But he could not openly blame it on Faena, even if she was the one who suggested to watch Brendel’s reaction. The responsibility would still fall on him.
Rono was probably interested to watch Brendel a little longer, but Elman had seen enough talented people and simply did not care. It was especially so when Faena was the only successor of the Redhill family.
[What an awful mess. I came here all for the sake of flattering this girl, but that Brendel ruined my perfect image. A genius or a duke’s successor, everything is pointless if my life is forfeit, but the ending to this scenario was a mere warning…… Damn this bastard from Aouine.]
Faena did not seem to realize Elman’ s actions back then because she was also panicking. Rono was certainly the victim, but he was not fond of speaking ill of others and did not give away Elman. Still, the latter’s eyes regarded Rono as though he was a dead person.
[If he were to tell Lady Veronica the things I have done to him……]
“Look over there!” Faena suddenly yelled.
