Chapter 144.5 : Nidol Proxia
「Just its name.」
「In that case, that’ll make this quicker. It might have been around one year ago. That guy worked for us until that time, but he decided to go to the Paladia kingdom next. I personally wrote a recommendation letter for him since it was related to the royal family of that kingdom. …….. Their first prince might know about this matter.」
Nidol replied while shrugging his shoulders.
Rio kept his silence for a while with a pensive look on his face. Nidol easily cooperated and, seeing that, Rio had nothing to prove the validity of this information. He had no way to know how valid that piece of information was. When Rio thought about whether it was okay to leave this place after achieving his goal――、
「Well, whether you want to believe or not is your own choice. Now then, what will you do next? You’ve taken your reward as I’ve answered your questions about my connection with that guy. I won’t be a good boy and give my cooperation for what comes next you know? And the timing is just right for the patrolling soldiers to have assembled.」
Nidol said so with a daring smile on his face. It was exactly as he said – they could hear the sound of soldiers running towards the arena.
（Staying any longer will be dangerous indeed.）
Rio frowned for a while and then decided to retreat.
「And since you’re choosing to retreat, make sure to use the same passage you used to sneak inside and to not touch the barrier. Whether you believe me or not is up to you.」
Nidol told him that information as if he had just remembered it. At the same time, magic power started to swell inside Nidol’s body. Rio backed away from him immediately and then left that place at once.
（Just what the hell is that man?）
Rio leapt towards the audience seats when he suddenly felt an extremely unpleasant feeling while looking at Nidol who was standing below on the arena.
Nidol was showing a daring smile as his gaze met Rio’s.
「OVER THERE!! 」
「SO FAST! 」
「LOOK FOR THE OTHER INTRUDERS! PROTECT HIS MAJESTY! 」
The soldiers quickly made their move to protect Nidol and surround Rio following the order of their leader.
But Rio’s movement speed was unmatched so he easily jumped over the open ceiling from the audience seat.
「That’s not the kind of movement you get from Hyper Physical Ability.」
The soldiers stopped in their tracks and looked up at Rio with dumbfounded faces.
Rio looked at Nidol one last time and then disappeared from the soldiers view by jumping outside the arena.
「D-Did he just jump down! ? 」
The soldiers were taken aback. Rio’s body raised due to wind spirit arts at that moment and he headed toward the crack in the barrier to escape. On the other hand――,
「Calm down. He’s strong indeed, but I hate that kind of man. Assuming that he did die, we need to look for his corpse right? 」
Nidol murmured so to himself with a satisfied smile on his face.
