Outside the mansion.
Victor was floating in the sky as he stared into Father Bruno ’s eyes.
”Tell me, Father. I ’m curious about something. ”
”… ” Father Bruno remained silent and waited for Victor ’s question.
”Even if you are a mongrel, do you believe in God? ” This was something Victor was quite curious about.
”…? ” Father Bruno ’s subordinates did not understand Victor ’s question.
”Of course, ” He didn ’t need to think too hard about his answer.
”Why? ” he asked again.
”Huh? ” Father Bruno did not understand what Victor was asking him.
”Why do you believe in someone so blindly, even though you ’ve never met that person? ” Victor couldn ’t understand that. Before he became a vampire and learned about the supernatural world, he would have understood a little bit about the hunters ’ faith.
But now? It was impossible. Victor had this thought because of Violet ’s father.
His wife ’s father was Adonis himself, the man who was fought over by the goddess Persephone and Aphrodite. And, from a conversation he had in the past with his father-in-law, he understood that everything indicated that these goddesses were real beings.
Victor didn ’t need to know a lot about mythology to understand how the gods were quite problematic beings.
Even for someone like him who had never thoroughly read a mythology book, he still knew the stories of the three great gods Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades.
After all, many movies were made with these gods as characters.
”Fool, faith doesn ’t need reasons, it comes from the heart! ” He tapped his chest in a convincing voice.
’Faith comes from the heart, huh? ’ Victor thought of the old spirit who had said something similar to him.
”…Then last question. Father, is your faith true? Do you believe 100% what you ’re talking about right now? ” Victor ’s eyes glowed blood red for a few seconds.
”… Of course! ” This time, he took a while to respond.
”I see… ” Victor closed his eyes a little, and then, when he opened his eyes, he looked at the priest ’s black glasses.
Victor ’s eyes seemed to look beyond the black glasses and appeared to be looking into Father Bruno ’s blood red eyes.
”Your mentality is broken, Father. You ’re being used, and you don ’t even realize it. ” Despite having said this, everyone could see that Victor was wearing a sneer.
”What are you talking about- ” The priest was about to say something, but he stopped when he suddenly felt the whole place grow warmer.
He looked up into Victor ’s face and saw that he was wearing an annoyed face.
”In the end… You ’re just dogs too… Wrong, you ’re just tools without a will. ”
Despite looking calm, Victor was still furious, and when he realized that the enemy in front of him wasn ’t anything special either, he got even angrier.
’These Mongrels are nothing special, vampire blood is not compatible with human blood. This man ’s body is slowly collapsing. I was expecting something more to come from a ’Hybrid ’, but in the end, they are just that… Mistakes… ’
Yes, Father Bruno had superhuman regeneration. Yes, he had a superhuman physical ability… But in the end, it ’s just that…
It seems that vampire blood was only used to augment Father Bruno ’s physical abilities since Victor couldn ’t see any of the other notable characteristics of a vampire.
Father Bruno was definitely strong. He could fight and kill a 500 year old adult vampire easily, and, along with his subordinates, he could even prove a challenge to 800 year old vampires, but who was Victor?
He was a freak of nature, a Vampire Count.
A large pillar of fire erupted from Victor ’s body.
”What!? ” One of Bruno ’s subordinates screamed in shock.
”Father, what is this wave of power!? ”
Father Bruno ignored the voices of his subordinates and just looked at Victor with a disbelieving look:
”Don ’t tell me… Can he access this form?… Hahahaha, this is a joke, right? Just how old is this monster!? ” Father Bruno panicked. He had the confidence to fight a 500 year old vampire and defeat that vampire.
But those freaks who could morph into the Vampire Count form were a big no.
He didn ’t know the exact amount, but it was deduced that a vampire ’s power when accessing the Vampire Count form was increased by at least double.
If Victor once had the power of a 500 year old vampire, now that he had accessed that form, his power had skyrocketed!
Now he had the power of a 1000 year old vampire!
Victor ’s appearance started to change, his height increased a little, his ears morphed and sharpened, his teeth grew sharper, and his hair began to float, appearing to defy gravity.
Suddenly, large bat wings made of fire appeared behind Victor.
The transformation was very different from last time!
Victor landed softly, and the moment he put his foot down, the ground around him started to catch fire.
”… The feeling is very different from the other way… ” Victor looked at his hands, closing and opening them as if trying to understand what was going on in his body.
”Hmm… It ’s not as strong as the other shape, but I feel like I can use this shape for longer. ” Victor was comparing his own transformation to the Snow Clan ’s Vampire Count transformation.
”Is this the Vampire Count transformation!? ”
”Isn ’t he a new vampire!?
”The information was incorrect!? ”
”Father, what are your orders! ”
Father Bruno ’s subordinates were freaking out, they were asking Father Bruno for orders, but the man was just too paralyzed.
Victor looked towards Father Bruno.
Father Bruno gulped when he felt that creature looking at him.
Victor started walking slowly towards the hunter.
Every step Victor took forward, Father Bruno took a step back; he was scared!
An instinctive fear from his vampire side!
Victor ’s smile grew disproportionately.
”!!! ” Father Bruno ’s entire existence trembled at Victor ’s smile.
”W-What are you waiting for! Quick, use the spells! ” He ordered his subordinates.
”Yes! ” The subordinates shouted.
But before they could do anything, a pillar of flame erupted from the ground and burned the five hunters.
The hunters screamed as they felt their entire existence turning to ash!
”I won ’t fall for the same trick twice. ” Victor lowered his hand and looked at Father Bruno:
”I realize that your race is resistant to the hunter ’s weapons, but… ” In a blink of an eye, Victor appeared in front of Father Bruno:
”I wonder if you ’re resistant to fire. ”
”S-Stop. ” He begged, and with that demonstration, Victor already knew the answer to his previous question.
”Father, you should grieve your god for turning you into a Mongrel. ” Victor grabbed the priest by the neck and lifted him into the air:
”AHHHHHHHHHHH! ” Just feeling Victor ’s touch, the man screamed in pain.
And that scream filled Victor with sadistic pleasure!
”Burn-. ” Just as Victor was about to erase Father Bruno from existence, he heard the voice of someone familiar:
”Stop, Darling. ” Violet appeared in front of Victor and touched his arm.
Victor looked down into his wife ’s violet eyes.
”We need to know what information this man knows. Don ’t you want revenge for what they did to Kaguya? ”
”V-Violet? ” Ruby stuttered a little. This was not what they agreed to!
”… ” Victor remained silent and looked back at Father Bruno.
Violet put on an annoyed face, ”Don ’t let fire control your emotions! ”
Victor created a sword of pure fire.
”Darling! ” Violet started to panic, if the man died here, they ’d lose an important clue!
Victor made a move with his sword towards Father Bruno.
A few seconds passed, and suddenly:
”AHHHHHHH! My Legs! My Arms! ”
Victor had severed Father Bruno ’s arms and legs, and soon he dropped the limbless man to the ground.
”…You ’re right, Violet. ” Victor ’s transformation slowly began to unravel, ”I won ’t be satisfied with just killing this man, I ’ll go after whoever ordered all this. ”
Scathach ’s words were resonating in Victor ’s head like a symphony of an extremely beautiful and dangerous classical song:
’Search, and destroy… All those responsible must die. ’
Victor clenched his fist tightly, and his glove ’s magic circle began to glow brightly as he looked up at the moon with eyes glowing blood red.
Violet sighed in relief, glad her voice reached Victor.
Ruby seized this moment and froze the man ’s entire body.
She approached Victor, ”Darling. ”
”Hmm? ” Victor turned to Ruby.
Suddenly Ruby did something Victor did not expect.
She hugged him. ”Calm down, Darling. Making decisions with a hot head is never a good idea. ”
”… ” Violet ’s eyes twitched, and, for a moment, she thought Ruby was giving her a hint.
”… ” Victor returned Ruby ’s hug as he felt the cold temperature that was leaving her body.
Somehow he started to calm down, and the turbulent emotions he was feeling were slowly settling.
It was as if the ice was slowly quenching the great flames of fury Victor was feeling.
Victor displayed a gentle smile, ”Thanks, Ruby. ” He patted her head a little.
”Mm… ” Ruby stepped away from Victor like a cat that has had its tail stepped on.
”… ” Victor flashed a wry smile when he saw Ruby ’s attitude.
Now that Victor was a little calmer, a question arose in his mind. ”Now that I ’ve stopped to think about it, why are you here? And where are the other agents? ”
”… ” Ruby and Violet looked at Victor with a dry look.
”This man… He really is hopeless. ” Ruby was in the mood to kick Victor in the face right now.
”Yes, when he gets lost in his emotions, he forgets everything around him… ” Violet sighed as if it was hopeless. Her Darling was very reckless.
”… ” Ruby looked at Violet with the same look she looked at Victor.
”What? ” Violet didn ’t understand Ruby ’s gaze.
A vein popped in Ruby ’s head, ”You ’re the same as him! Remember how many times I had to clean up your mess! ”
Violet ’s face took on an annoyed expression, ”That was in the past! I ’m not like that anymore! I ’m calmer now! ”
”… I doubt it. ” It was more likely for the seven hells to freeze than for Violet to be calmer! She may have matured, but Ruby knew Violet hadn ’t gone crazy yet because she had no reason to. But if something big involving Victor or Adonis happened in the future, she was 100% certain Violet would lose control!
’I think I can include Sasha and me in the important people she cares about? ’ She thought about it because she noticed that Violet was slowly expressing concerns to her friends.
What an amazing evolution. Before, she only cared about Victor.
”Anyway, let ’s get out of this place, we need to do a lot of things today. ” Ruby turned around, ”And Darling, undo those ice spikes! ”
”Hmm? Okay. ” Victor snapped his fingers, and soon all the ice thorns turned to water. He then made a slight gesture with his hands and took this water up to the clouds and turned the water into hail.
Soon a hailstorm began to fall from the sky.
”Done. ” He slapped his hands together several times as if he ’d done a good job.
”…I told you to get rid of the ice thorns, not to rain hail, ” Ruby spoke dryly.
”Well, where would I throw all that water? ” Victor asked.
”Couldn ’t you evaporate water with your firepower? ”
”Oh. ” Victor ’s brain was still a little sluggish.
