Legend of the Holy Light (Arc 6.8)
Louis and Carnia brought soldiers to expel the demons from the cities. However, the demon soldiers were very resistant, and those soldiers stationed at the border by Barron had basically forgotten how to fight after years of Barron's order not to resist.
The first attempt at eviction failed, and Carnia felt that the demon king still didn't know that it was him expelling the demons, so he wasn't anxious.
On the way back to his room, Carnia met Barron.
As soon as Barron saw him, he immediately came forward, squinting at him. "Sai-, ah no, I heard that you are already no longer the saint, I really feel sorry about that. But after not seeing you for several years, you are still so good looking.”
Carnia looked at Barron's greasy face and fat figure, as well as his gaze toward himself, and only felt immense disgust. "Roll away!”
Even though Barron had coveted Carnia for a very long time, he still knew his strength. Even if he was no longer the saint, under the second prince's protection, Barron still didn't dare to touch him.
Carnia walked past Barron but suddenly stopped. His eyes turned in a circle, and he thought of an idea that he felt was very good.
"Come over." Carnia turned and said to Barron.
Barron's eyes lit up and he immediately strode toward Carnia.
"Not so close." Carnia frowned and took a step backward, turning his head to his attendant and saying, "You step away.”
"I ask you." Carnia whispered to Barron. "How do you think the Sylvie next to the great prince looks?”
"Very good looking! I feel like compared to you, he is even be…" Barron didn't finish his words, when he saw Carnia's expression instantly change, he changed his tone, "Even, even worse than you by just a little bit, but still very good looking.”
"Then do you want to sleep with him?" Carnia looked at Barron vaguely.
"I do, but what's the use? I can't even with you…" Barron smiled. "He is the great prince's man, I have that mind but not the courage. If the great prince knew, he would kill me.”
"Rest a.s.sured, I can guarantee that if he really did that kind of thing with you, he would definitely not tell the great prince." Carnia said with certainty. "He will definitely want to hide this matter, and then you would have seized his handle and could do whatever you want with him. Even if the great prince found out, he would also not kill you, because your father is currently the prime minister. It's impossible for him to ignore your father's position and directly kill you. After all, he is still not the emperor right now.”
Barron was moved by Carnia's words. "Then, then what can I do to get him…”
Carnia half-covered his mouth with his hand and spoke to him in a very low voice.
Barron also quietly responded to him, and then smiled very lewdly. "If this succeeds, I must thank you properly!”
Carnia smiled and turned, walking to Jing Yang's room.
There were many soldiers standing outside Jing Yang's room. Carnia couldn't directly go inside, standing outside for a while before finally seeing Jing Yang.
Jing Yang did not ask what he was doing, just looking at him.
"I have something to tell you about your grandfather." Carnia said.
"Speak." Jing Yang said expressionlessly.
"Are you sure you want to talk about it here?" Carnia turned to look at those soldiers. "It would be better for us to change a location.”
Jing Yang was silent for a moment, but had already guessed what his intention was. "Wait for a while, I will change my clothes.”
It didn't take long for him to come back out from the room. He told the soldiers and attendants not to follow, and instead followed Carnia away by himself.
They pa.s.sed through a garden and came to a somewhat remote building. Carnia said, "There are some words that I think would be best to say alone, here there won't be any people to bother us. Follow me in ba.”
Jing Yang looked at him, not speaking or moving.
"What? You don't dare?" Carnia smiled and said. "You are by yourself, I am by myself, are you still scared that I will do something to you? Are you sure you don't want to know about some things from before your grandfather died?”
Carnia pushed open the door and went inside first, Jing Yang followed behind him. This house didn't look very large from outside, but it was quite long inside. Walking through the big hall and then through a very long corridor, they reached outside another room. Jing Yang turned and glanced at the entrance that was already no longer in sight. In here, no matter how loud the sounds were, the people outside would not be able to hear, not to mention that there was no one outside.
Carnia opened this second door, inside the room was beautifully furnished, and there was a quite large bath. Jing Yang guessed that this was definitely the place where Barron would enjoy himself, and he had already guessed Carnia's purpose in bringing him here. Did he really think that everyone was a fool?
Carnia looked at the teapot on the table and a glint flashed across his eyes. He turned toward Jing Yang and said, "Sit, I will slowly tell you.”
Jing Yang sat down at the table and watched Carnia pour two cups of tea. He placed one cup in front of him, while he himself held the other and first took a sip.
"This tea is really quite good, why don't you try it? I especially let people prepare the best tea." Carnia held his almost empty teacup.
Jing Yang raised the teacup and drank it all in one go, and then placed it down. "Speak!”
Carnia suppressed the excitement in his heart, trying not to show his glee. He smiled and said, "About your grandfather, before he died…”
Jing Yang suddenly fell on the table. Carnia reached out and pushed at him, but he didn't react at all.
"You can come out." Carnia stood up.
Barron walked out of a hidden door and looked at Carnia. Then he looked at Jing Yang sprawled on the table, and said full of smiles, "Success?”
"What's so hard about it?" Carnia was very satisfied. "It was extremely simple for me, you can just relax and enjoy yourself. As long as you don't say it, I will also not say it, I promise that he will not have the guts to speak about it either.”
"Thank you thank you!" Barron continuously said. "In the future if you have anything I can help with, don't hesitate to speak.”
"You hurry up ba, when the great prince comes back, if he can't find him, he will definitely send people everywhere to look for him." Carnia glanced at him then turned and went out, helping him close the door.
Barron rubbed his hands and walked close to Jing Yang. Looking at Jing Yang's smooth and beautiful face, he reached out his fat and thick hand, and just as he wanted to touch, before he even got close, Jing Yang suddenly opened his eyes.
Barron was startled. Before he could react, Jing Yang waved his hand and sprinkled a white powder all over his face.
Barron inhaled a large amount of the powder from surprise, his two eyes continuously rolled around, but he didn't faint or fall down, just slowly losing his sanity.
Jing Yang stood up and looked at him with disdain, then opened the teapot on the table. There really was a hidden mechanism in it. They wanted to affect him with just this little drug? He would show these two men what a really powerful drug was.
"Come." Jing Yang hooked his finger at Barron.
Barron followed Jing Yang like a soulless puppet.
Carnia waited at the door, feeling somewhat bored. He then lay on the door to eavesdrop, but there was no sound inside. He felt that it was a little strange, and pushed open the door a bit to look inside, but still did not hear or see anything.
Carnia walked straight in. It was very quiet inside, as if no one else was there but himself. Looking at the empty seats, he walked to the thick curtains with doubt, but heard nothing.
He opened the curtains slightly. Carnia saw what seemed like someone lying on the bed, but there was only one person, and he was motionless. Looking at the size, it was apparently Barron rather than Sylvie.
Carnia was very doubtful. He opened the curtain and walked over, standing next to the bed. Looking at Barron sleeping like a dead pig, he bent over and slapped him hard. "Wake up!”
Barron suddenly opened his eyes, grabbed Carnia's hand, and pulled it hard. Turning his body, he pressed him under his body.
"What are you doing? Let me go!" Carnia desperately struggled, but Barron pressed down on him like a fleshy mountain, and he couldn't move him at all.
Carnia was kissed on his face and neck by Barron, who seemed like he had gone mad. This made him feel utterly nauseated, but to add to his despair, Barron suddenly became endlessly powerful, ripping all of his clothes and trousers to shreds.
"Ah!!!" Carnia screamed. "No! Don't! Someone come save me!”
Carnia had completely panicked. He didn't know what to do, he could not push Barron away, and also couldn't break his shackles. He could only watch with his eyes wide open as Barron invaded him.
Carnia's light power was actually demon magic, light power could only cure humans, not harm them. Even though demon magic could not only hurt humans but also demons, his demon magic had already been converted by the bone that the demon king had given him, and could affect humans' bodies, but not directly kill them.
Carnia was now extremely regretful, he should have also let the demon king give him a protective treasure. Even if he had to risk his ident.i.ty being exposed, it would still be better than now.
Barron was like an out-of-control beast, aggressively invading and ravaging Carnia. After a long time, Carnia could no longer endure, fainting.
After a while, Barron also suddenly fainted.
Jing Yang took off his hood and shook off his cloak. He looked at the two men on the bed and was disdainful. He had originally wanted to find a chance to remove that illusion bone from Carnia's body, and since he had brought this opportunity to the door himself, why would he be polite?
Jing Yang directly kicked Barron off from on top of Carnia. He turned Carnia over and took out a sharp knife and a long-prepared dog bone. He cut a hole in Carnia's back and removed the illusion bone, then placed the dog bone inside. He finally used his light power to help him heal the wound so that it vanished without a trace. Even he himself would not feel like anything was wrong.
After he finished everything, Jing Yang left. It took a very long time for Carnia to wake up.
Carnia opened his eyes and only felt like his world was spinning. He didn't know where he was or why he felt that way. After the dizziness pa.s.sed, Carnia tried to sit up, and pain seized his entire body. He looked down at his body, and then the memories immediately crashed back into his mind. His eyes went wide, his breathing sped up.
Turning to look at Barron still sleeping next to him, Carnia became even more furious. He was actually violated by this pig of a man! It was completely unforgivable!
Carnia trembled with anger. He jumped out of bed, pulled out the candle from the candlestick, and thrust the sharp point into Barron's chest. He stabbed it in several times in a row, Barron's blood splattered his entire body and face, splas.h.i.+ng all over the bed and the floor.
Carnia killed Barron, vented his anger, and then suddenly lost his strength and collapsed on the ground. He covered his chest and wanted to cry but couldn't cry out. As long as he thought that he had been violated by such a man, he wanted to vomit from disgust.
After sitting on the ground for a while, Carnia suddenly came back to his senses. He couldn't stay here any longer, he didn't know how long he had been unconscious. If someone suddenly came over, he wouldn't be able to explain.
Carnia was looking for anything that could cover his body when the door was suddenly opened from outside, and a group of people quickly walked in.
The curtain was opened, Louis leading in the front. He looked at Carnia covered in blood, sitting naked on the floor, and widened his eyes, immediately rus.h.i.+ng over to hold him. "Carnia, are you hurt?”
"I, I…" Carnia was fl.u.s.tered and had no idea how to explain.
Orede and Jing Yang also slowly walked in, the soldiers had already surrounded the area. One of Orede's subordinates went forward to check out Barron's situation, and reported, "Your Highness, Barron is already dead.”
Louis's head snapped up. He looked at Barron's body on his bed, his eyes full of shock. "What the h.e.l.l is going on here?!”
Carnia viciously glared at Jing Yang. Even though he didn't know how he did it, he knew that this matter definitely had something to do with him.
Jing Yang did not avoid him at all, meeting his gaze.
Louis saw Carnia glaring at Jing Yang and said to him, "Carnia, tell the truth. Even if I have to stake my life, I will help you and Barron get justice.”
Carnia's eyes dodged around, how could he say that he had lured Sylvie here and originally wanted to let Barron rape him, but in the end he didn't know what happened and he himself had been raped by the crazed Barron. Not only would people not believe him, but he would also have admitted that he had wanted to frame Sylvie, and the great prince would surely seize this point and punish him.
"I, I…" Carnia leaned into Louis's arms, his face full of sorrow. "It was Barron, he tricked me here and wanted to force himself on me. I wanted to escape and desperately struggled. He refused to let me go, so I lost control and killed him.”
Carnia buried his face in Louis's arms, crying very miserably.
Once Louis heard that Barron wanted to force himself on Carnia, he looked down at the traces left on Carnia's body. He immediately felt that Barron deserved it and hugged Carnia to comfort him. "Don't cry, it's not your fault, we don't blame you.”
Louis appeased Carnia, then suddenly remembered that it would not be easy to account for this to his uncle once he returned to the capital. After all these years his uncle only had this one son, and spoiled him like a baby. If he knew that Carnia had killed Barron, he would definitely not let him go.
Louis suddenly felt his head ache.
