Emperor of Steel
     Chapter 467: Rescue Operation of Count Ferrero 3

    A dark night without the moon in sight.

    There were a series of shadows running through the darkness in the capital's streets.

    They were moving silently and were assassins along with Henry, who belonged to Hydra.

    ‘All of this feels new, but the demon's ability is great.'

    Henry, who looked at his men, thought to himself.

    After becoming the demon's slaves, his physical abilities have improved significantly compared to when being a regular human.

    Especially on a dark ebony-like night, his abilities seemed to have bloomed.

    At first, he was utterly discouraged after being turned into a demon's slave, but now that he calmly thought about it, it didn't seem to be so bad.

    ‘This is why the warlocks gain power after signing a contract with the demons.'

    Thinking so, Henry stopped at the crossroads and spoke to his men, "Let's scatter here. Anyway, we should be drawing in a little attention, so avoid any unnecessary response."

    Nodding at the words, the agents of Hydra, with their ghost-like moves, entered the barracks.

    They began to fire the gunpowder sack they had brought along and throw it into the armory.

    Bang! Bang!

    Wheeing!

    As Hydra agents moved away, the flames soared high along with the explosions in the barracks and the officers throughout the Nemesis.

    "W-what was that?"

    "Idiot! This is no time to delay! There is gunpowder on fire!"

    Unlike the offices, the Central Army was quick to respond when they saw the soaring fire from the barracks.

    There were a lot of gunpowder and shells in the armory.

    And thanks to that, everyone was busy running away rather than trying to find out who was at fault.

    Kuahhh!

    Once all the gunpowder and shells of the armory detonated, a loud roar rang.

    Along with that, an earthquake-like vibration shook the entire capital.

    It was then that an urgent cry was heard in the ears of the knights and soldiers who were on guard during the hectic situation caused by the explosion.

    "The enemy! The enemy's special forces have invaded!"

    "The Libiya Kingdom's men are here!"

    The agents of Hydra and Henry disguised as the Central Army soldiers went around shouting the same thing.

    They weren't just shouting; they were taking down knights and soldiers who were alone and were in their way.

    "Kuek!"

    "The enemy! The enemy has appeared!"

    "Be careful! The enemies have disguised themselves as our allies!"

    While the barracks and the armory were on fire, the Knights of Guards who were guarding Count Ferrero's mansion were shocked.

    "What the hell is this?"

    Juan, who was on the lookout for the mansion, asked the lady knight on the horse who was running away from the barracks.

    The beautiful lady with red hair and had an embroidered uniform and a Knights of Guard's crest on her answered, "The Libiya Kingdom's special forces have appeared."

    "What?"

    Her eyes looked at Juan who was shocked and continued, "Right now, all parts of the capital are under attack. There is an order from the top to clear the enemy forces with all troops on hand."

    "But we were ordered to defend the mansion. Without his Majesty's orders, we can't…"

    "Do you think that you have a chance for that to happen? The commander said that he'll take responsibility and get the approval from His Majesty, so move now!"

    "U-understood. We'll leave right away."

    Depressed because the female knight shouted at him, Juan left his office with minimal force.

    The remaining knights spoke to the others with a worried expression, "They said there are a lot of invading troops."

    "Yes, moreover, they even disguised themselves as us!"

    "Uh! Then it's even more troublesome. By the way, which squad are you from? I never met such a pretty guy like… Kuek!"

    An arrow hit the knight who tried to reach out to the female knight.

    Over there standing in front of the fallen man was Scarlet with her bow in her hand.

    "W-what was that?"

    While the knights were shocked, Scarlet, with her agility of being a Bow Expert, killed the rest of the knights.

    "Kuek!"

    "Kuek!"
