A Frontline Soldier Awakened as a Gamer In The War! - FSAGW Chapter 70 (Part 2)
Barvan had come in person. Just as Grandel had said, he seemed to be a suspicious character. Otherwise, there would be no reason for Barvan to come all the way here upon hearing about something important without knowing the exact reason.
Following Kaes, who was urging him with impatience, Kaiyan headed towards the mercenary Guild in the heart of Blatan.
“But… Kaiyan, are you really okay with this? How about reconsidering it even now?”
“I’m fine. However, as I mentioned before, until Barvan and I discuss it alone, you should never mention the fact that I’m a survivor of the Therian Merchant Group.”
Just to be safe, Kaiyan had firmly instructed Kaes and the mercenary point staff, in case the spies got wind of my survival. If word spread to those spy bastards that I was alive, Jansen would probably escape.
What Kaiyan was worried about was the possibility of the gathering organized by Jansen getting canceled. If Kaiyan couldn’t sort things out this time, it would be uncertain when Kaiyan could meet Barvan and deal with Jansen.
But Kaiyan couldn’t waste time wandering around to find him, especially when Kaiyan couldn’t personally kill him and leave no trace. Moreover, if he were to be killed without a trace, there could be trouble if it’s discovered it was Kaiyan’s doing, and the Kingdom might send a pursuit party.
“It’s quiet. Unlike usual.”
Though they had arrived at the mercenary point with Kaes, the sounds of the mercenaries bustling around inside, which was typical, weren’t audible.
“Well, anyone who doesn’t know that these are noble folks here even if they came secretly is blind.”
“Well… let’s go inside.”
Covering his entire body with a black robe he had prepared in advance, Kaiyan followed Kaes into the mercenary point. As soon as he entered, what caught his eye were ten knights observing their surroundings with sharp gazes. And behind them, three people similarly dressed in flipped robes.
“Who is this person?”
When Kaes and Kaiyan approached the robed figures, the knight at the forefront raised his sword and shouted.
“This is the person I talked about.”
“Is that so? Then, remove your robe and reveal your identity.”
The knight didn’t seem eager to let them pass even after Kaes spoke, and he kept his sword raised, his expression brimming with arrogance.
“Kaes, it’s alright. From now on, I will speak.”
Stepping forward, Kaiyan calmed down the agitated Kaes.
“I want to have a private conversation with Barvan.”
“Doesn’t this guy hear me? Remove your robe and reveal your identity! Now!”
Ignoring the knight’s demands, Kaiyan looked back at him, causing the knight to raise his sword and shout as if he was about to swing it at any moment.
“I don’t want to listen to someone whose neck might be cut off soon. I want to talk to Barvan alone.”
“This guy! My words don’t reach him?”
Eventually, the knight couldn’t contain himself any longer and swung his sword.
Whether he was complacent or his skills were lacking, Kaiyan easily dodged the sword. However, he continued to look at the robed figure without avoiding the sword flying towards his head.
A voice in a deep, low tone was barely audible. It was the kind of voice that gave you chills when you heard it.
And it seemed the same for the knight as well because he halted the sword he was swinging right in front of my nose.
Looking at the knight with confusion as he glanced behind him, the knight opened his mouth in surprise.
“I want to talk with him.”
“But, with someone whose identity is unknown…”
“You find my words amusing?”
“N-No, not at all.”
Another robed figure beside the one addressed as Barvan gestured towards Kaes. Passing by the knights, as Kaiyan and the robed figures approached, the robed figure on the far right spoke up.
“It’s impossible for Barvan to have a private conversation. Instead, I and the knights, excluding Ecrin and Salmos, will leave.”
From the beginning, Kaiyan hadn’t thought that he and Barvan could have a quiet conversation alone. After all, they didn’t know my identity.
Still, if they appeared to be among Barvan’s closest, it should be fine. Jansen couldn’t have recruited even the closest ones.
“Come this way.”
Following Kaes’ guidance, Kaiyan and the robed figures were led not to the training grounds they usually entered but to a small room with a table and chairs.
“Well, have your conversation…”
As Kaes closed the door and left, the robed figures removed their deep-robed attire. Two of them appeared to be middle-aged, and the remaining one was a young man with a cold demeanor.
“How long do you plan to keep wearing the robe?”
The man who could be presumed as Barvan spoke up.
At his words, Kaiyan lifted the robe that was pressed down and slightly lowered his head.
“Hello. I am Kaiyan.”
Though his behavior of bowing probably didn’t please them, their faces turned fierce, but what’s disappointing now is Barvan.
“Hmm… Kaiyan, huh? That’s a name I’ve never heard before. But why did you say that Crewin would lose his head?”
That man, Crewin, was probably the one who swung his sword at me from outside. And that story seemed to have piqued Barvan’s curiosity.
“You’ll know that if you listen to my story.”
Kaiyan didn’t intend to be arrogant toward Crewin.
Sure enough, in a moment, Crewin’s head will roll down just as he said.
“I see. So, why did you come looking for me?”
“To provide valuable information to Barvan-nim. Well, if you hear it, you’ll probably think it was a good decision to come.”
“Oh ho, go on and tell me.”
Though Barvan looked interested and stared at me, just before I began, two middle-aged men standing behind Barvan drew their swords.
“How dare you… to Barvan!”
“Ecrin Gyeong, Salmos Gyeong. Calm down. So, what do you want?”
Barvan tried to calm them down and still had an intrigued expression on his face as he asked.
‘Is he relaxed or just wearing a mask?’
If he was a noble like Tarien, he would have immediately yelled to cut off my head. It’s a bit unexpected.
“The first is to grant a favor to the Blatan Mercenary Guild from the Carsia family, and the second is to give me information about the location of the Lukuba Merchant Group in Blatan, which has been rumored to be present.”
“Hmm… Lukuba Merchant Group… Well, it’s not that difficult. Is that all?”
“Yes, that’s the price.”
“Now, tell me the information you have.”
Though Barvan’s smile made it seem like he was enjoying the story, if he doesn’t like it even a bit, he might order the knights behind him to cut Kaiyan’s throat.
But the story he will tell Barvan is definitely worth his satisfaction.
“Jansen de Carsia. Jansen, the second in the Carsia family and the younger brother of Barvan, is alive.”
Before my words even finished, Barvan’s smiling face shattered, and he opened his mouth wide in surprise. It oddly made Kaiyan feels good.
