The Evolution Of A Goblin To The Peak - Chapter 453
The one who was called the Flame Master, Bargan Hevifield. He didn’t have any noteworthy master except for the principal of the Ladro Institute which was at the shackled realm.
But it’s nothing, the commander even had confidence that he could defeat the principal yet in front of Bargan he stood no chance. Bargan who tapped the power of flames too deeply even managed to earn a praise from various God of Fire.
In the battle in Ladros City, Bargan alone fought several seven-circle officers of the Deadly Sins yet he managed to defeat most of them. Those officers from Deadly Sins had blessings and they were equipped with orange grade equipment and above. But they still couldn’t kill Bargan and they only managed to seal him.
And that wasn’t even Bargan’s full power.
He knows it because he was fortunate to witness Bargan’s full power in the past when Bargan was still roaming in the continent, not stuck in the Ladros City teaching young people. That time, he saw how Bargan wielded the Heavenly Orb Flame which was a universal grade catalyst.
That catalyst boosted his flame power by one hundred fold to the point that gods were forced to move to prevent him from destroying fertile lands on the continent. After that event, the gods said that they haven’t seen anyone as strong as Bargan in shackled realm. So a lot of people called him unrivaled under the gods.
That’s true. If he weren’t going to include the gods then Bargan was the strongest creature in this world. A man who could soloed several fifth evolution monsters at the same time was none other than him. Other peak shackled realm experts need to party to subjugate a fifth evolution monster yet it was the opposite for Bargan. Monster needed to form a party if they were going to fight him.
“We’ll handle this. I’m going to let you know the result of our investigation.” The commander said to Bargan.
“Yeah, actually I don’t have a plan to move. They are my students but I’m not going to babysit them so I’ll let them deal with their own problems. Also, I trust that they will settle it on their own even without my help.” Bargan smiled as he closed his eyes.
“That’s good.” The commander nodded as he sat down on the seat in front of Bargan.
“Our enemies right now are the demons in the Listen Wastes so we should focus on it. I’ve already stayed here for a long time and my country will dispatch me next week.” Bargan said to the commander.
“Yeah, it’s really a problem. I didn’t think that the demons wouldn’t even try to negotiate with us. I’m going to tell you this, the barrier was shattered.” The commander said to Bargan.
“What?” Bargan was surprised by what he heard. He then calmed down and realized what’s happening. “I see, so that’s why my country is going to dispatch me so soon.”
“They spread out in the Listen Wastes and reach several cities. In a swift and militaristic attack, they wiped out hundreds of small countries.” The commander’s tone turned grave. “Several large countries are forming their army to block the demons. But one thing is clear, the continent is at war.”
“War. It’s been a while since I’ve witnessed a war of this caliber.” Bargan sighed deeply. “A war that involved gods.”
“That’s why we’ll do everything to settle any internal conflicts.” The commander said seriously.
“I’ll trust you with that,” Bargan said as he leaned on his chair. First, the Three Bringer of Calamity, and now the demons have appeared. Problems kept popping up left and right.
Bryan was wearing a black robe and his hood was covering half of his face to prevent anyone from recognizing his appearance. He was near the red light district that was owned by the Bentley Family.
His task was to investigate it and know the truth. He was alone and didn’t have anyone with him.
“I need to find evidence but… where should I start? The red light district is so huge and it will take several days if investigated every building.”
He muttered as he rubbed his chin. At this time, he really wanted to have Yujin, Lumilia, or Souta at his side. Those three were the ones who were always planning their moves. They would know where to start if they were in his place.
His body flashed towards the red light district. His speed was too fast for ordinary people so no one noticed him appeared on top of one of the buildings. They just thought that the wind just blew strongly and nothing else as it was an ordinary occurrence in this world.
What Bryan didn’t know was that there were three people waiting for him on the rooftop.
Bryan opened his eyes widely and he turned around as fast as possible. The three people were wearing clothes of the guards.
He smiled wryly as he waved his hand at them. But something unexpected happened next.
The three guards burst towards him while brandishing their weapons. Their mana gathered around their weapons as if they were ready to kill Bryan.
“W-Wait! What are you doing?! I didn’t do anything wrong!!”
Bryan moved swiftly as he avoided the attacks of the guards while trying to explain his reason for being here. But the guards didn’t listen to him at all. They just relentlessly attack him without care.
‘Why are these guards attacking me?’ was the question that came to his mind. They just saw him suspiciously but this wasn’t enough for them to attack him.
He kept running but the guards didn’t give up at all. Soon, a lot of people noticed the commotion on the rooftop.
‘I need to get away from this place quickly.’
He said inwardly as his mana coated his body and his speed increased by several times.
He went to the opposite side and left the guards. His body flashed and no ordinary people could follow him with their eyes.
The only problem was that a lot of people noticed his energy. And this didn’t escape the surveillance of the patrols around the red light district.
While Bryan was moving as fast as he could, he sensed several outbursts of enormous energy in different directions and all of them were heading at him.
“What is happening?”
Bryan didn’t understand why those guards wanted to capture him so bad. The next thing that happened answered his questions.
Several B-rank experts surrounded him and one of them said, “Bryan Dagruel, surrender yourself and you will be punished for killing several empire guards.”
Bryan’s pupils constricted when he heard their words. Killing several empire guards? He didn’t do it at all.
“We are really lucky that we are the ones who found you first. You will not be able to escape this crime and you can’t do anything about it. It’s your fault for going against my lord.”
The leader of the patrol guards smiled and said to Bryan. He was with the Bentley Family. The Bentley Family ordered them to find Bryan before the empire guards find him so that they could force Bryan into a battle to create a scene that Bryan was really the one who killed the empire guards in the detention center.
It was a good plan and the empire guards wouldn’t be able to do anything. They could only accept that Bryan was the culprit and even if they found that Bryan wasn’t the killer, it was all too late. In the end, he will become a scapegoat for the recent incidents.
“What are you trying to say?”
Bryan glanced around and found that there were five B-rank experts around him.
The Bentley Family really wanted to pin him down as they even dispatched five B-rank experts.
“You don’t need to understand!”
One of the five B-rank experts said as he charged towards Bryan.
“You want a fight, right? Then, I’ll give it to you. Five B-ranks aren’t enough to stop me.”
Bryan said as he pulled back his hand and threw it on the B-rank that charged at him.
Both of their attacks collided and it caused shockwaves in the area that shook several buildings around them.
The B-rank expert was blown away before crashing on the floor with a powerful impact that caused a huge crater.
Since they wanted to fight, Bryan would give them what they wanted. He wouldn’t hesitate to use his power against these people.
The remaining four B-ranks charged at him at the same time. Their mana was all over the place and the civilians panicked. The uproar was noticed by every people within three kilometers in diameter.
Bryan’s mana exploded out of his body and it bore down on his opponents. He wasn’t going to be lenient anymore now that he felt that more than five guards were heading in this direction.
“Why are they trying to blame me for the crime that I didn’t do?!”
