A Frontline Soldier Awakened as a Gamer In The War! - FSAGW Chapter 75 (Part 1)
Barvan put down his sword and shook his head, looking at Kaiyan.
“I… don’t know what to say about this. Thank you.”
“I just took a commission. He fought for a reward, so there’s no need to thank me.”
“…Well, still, thank you for taking my commission.”
Does he feel guilty about killing his brother?
Considering he just dealt with the obstacle that was in his way, Barvan’s expression seems a bit drained.
“But what about those guys? If you want, I can take care of them as well.”
Pointing at the five surviving knights with his hand, Kaiyan asked, and Barvan shook his head.
“We need to leave them as witnesses.”
“Yeah… this wasn’t just about the Carsia Clan’s successor dispute.”
“What are you talking about?”
“Kaiyan, do you know that you’ve killed more than 30 knights?”
Kaiyan hadn’t counted them individually, but from his perspective as someone who had fought against them, it would be unreasonable not to know.
Barvan turned his head and gestured to the surviving knights.
“And adding those five survivors… It’s a number that a single noble can’t command.”
Even the prestigious Cheniavin family had only 15 knights, and it’s strange that Jansen, who wasn’t even the successor, had so many.
If he had knights in that number, to begin with, there wouldn’t have been a reason for him to hide from Barvan.
“Why did Jansen have so many knights?”
“Except for those led by Grandel, most of them are knights from other noble families. The patterns engraved on their armor are all different, evidence of that.”
Only after hearing Barvan’s words did Kaiyan realize that the patterns on their armor were indeed different.
“They might be the knights of those who joined hands with Jansen.”
“That’s possible. If Jansen eliminates you and becomes the successor, it won’t be bad for them either. But is that a problem? After all, you only killed those who attacked you.”
“The problem is that there’s no way to prove that except through those knights. Without evidence, other families will refuse to acknowledge it. If the news of Jansen’s death reaches them, they are likely to bring up this issue.”
It turns out the world of nobles is more complicated than Kaiyan thought. Just killing the guys who attacked should have been enough, but now he has to prove it.
The nominated knights dropped their swords and fell to the ground.
“P-Please spare us! We only did what we were told, we really didn’t know this would happen!”
“If you spare us, we’ll serve you loyally!”
“Knights are like that.”
From Kaiyan’s perspective, having witnessed knights slaughter monsters on the battlefield with fervor, they’re nothing but trash.
He’s really curious about how these guys, with that level of skill and determination, became knights.
“Kaiyan, don’t look at them like that. Not all knights are like that.”
Barvan opened his mouth, seemingly realizing what Kaiyan was thinking by looking at his expression.
“I know that. I’ve encountered real knights who aren’t like these trash on the battlefield.”
“On the battlefield… You participated in this monster wave, huh?”
“That’s right. Oh, by the way, Barvan, why didn’t you participate in the monster wave? Or did I just not see you?”
Doubts surfaced as Kaiyan questioned Barvan.
When he watched the battle just now, Barvan had proper sword skills, not just superficial ones like Tarian’s. With that level of combat prowess, he should have been able to contribute significantly to the monster wave.
“Hmm? Oh, you’re not from the Menislan Kingdom, so you wouldn’t know. In the Menislan Kingdom, those named as heirs can’t participate in the monster wave.”
“What kind of ridiculous…”
For some reason, all these special forces commanders are such idiots. It was because those proper guys didn’t participate in the battle.
“Rather than that, how about we get out of here now? We need to hurry and treat Ecrin’s arm.”
“I’m fine… Barvan.”
When he turned his head and looked at Ecrin, his face was pale. The problem was that he fought the knights to protect Barvan without proper bandaging.
He’s truly exceptional, not just in terms of skill but also determination.
“Well, let’s go already… Huh?”
Just as Barvan, Ecrin, and Kaiyan were about to leave, Reika, who was hiding in a corner, pulled on the hem of his pants.
[Kaiyan! The artifact is inside that guy’s chest. Should I take it?]
Reika pointed at Jansen, who had a sword sticking out of his heart and had fallen over.
Kaiyan glanced at Barvan, as if asking what to do, and nodded slightly to Reika.
‘I should take it. This fight cost me 400G.’
“Alright, let’s go! All of you, come with us.”
Barvan, his group, and the knights headed for the stairs. When he looked back, Reika was moving her short legs diligently, seemingly collecting something.
It seems like there’s more to collect than just Jansen’s artifact.
‘You’re doing well, Reika!’
“Phew… The treatment is done. Would you like to move your arm a bit?”
At the priest’s words, Ecrin moved his left arm a few times and nodded.
“Then I’ll take my leave.”
As the priest bowed his head and disappeared after bidding farewell to Barvan, Ecrin also bowed his head to Barvan.
“Thank you, Barvan-nim.”
“What’s there to be thankful for? It’s because of me that this happened. In fact, I should be thanking you, Ecrin. If it weren’t for you, I would have died before Kaiyan could help.”
Although Ecrin and Barvan kept on talking, Kaiyan couldn’t really focus on their conversation.
“Reattaching an arm that’s been severed…”
Witnessing the priest treats Ecrin’s severed arm left Kaiyan deeply astonished. He was aware of the potency of sacred power from experiencing the priest’s healing before, but reattaching a severed arm was far beyond his expectations.
“It’s somewhat similar to leveling up.”
Leveling up, which healed all injuries and restored vitality. But could leveling up also reattach a severed arm?
“I should ask Reika when she comes.”
While pondering the astonishment he felt at the sacred power, Kaiyan was suddenly shaken on the shoulder.
“Hmm? Why is it, Barvan?”
“Why aren’t you responding even though I called you so many times? I called you several times.”
“I was lost in thought for a moment… Anyway, what’s the matter?”
“What are your plans from now on? Ecrin and I are planning to return to our families. We have some issues to sort out.”
Indeed, Barvan had other problems to solve, related to other noble families.
“I haven’t really thought about it.”
“Then how about accompanying me to the Carsia family? After all, I’m in a situation where I have to grant your request. It would be better if you went to the family with me. We might as well take the opportunity.”
“Going to a noble family…”
Visiting where nobles live.
