hole towns being disappeared.

The villages were not burnt down nor looted by a gang of bandits.

All the property and utilities were left intact and only people went missing.

It is not a case that can be explained in the normal course of events.

Upon hearing Rick’s story, Huss scrambled up something on a woodblock he was holding and asked.

“Is it possible that it was done by a bunch of bandits?”

“There were items in the village that were quite worth money that were still intact,” he said.

“Not a single item disappeared?”

There was no sign of any signs that they had been touched otherwise.”

If it was a bandits, there would be no items or money left in the village.

However, there were no signs of looting or even bloodstains in the village.

That was precisely why Rick was convinced that it was not the work of a bandits.

Such a site can’t be created if it was work of bandits.

At least it wasn’t something that was done for money.

After hearing Rick’s story, Huss nodded his head and asked the following question.

“Possibility of moving somewhere else?”

“No, no.
One of the villages that disappeared had a man with a crippled legs, but he too disappeared without a trace.”

It was Rick who was looking for traces of people around the villages, just in case.

Large migrations always leave traces.

However, he could not find any traces of people moving in groups near the village.

The second possibility that Huss considered was also pointless.

As one possibility after another was ruled out, Huss clicked his tongue and stared at the woodblock he was holding.

“So you’re saying that only people disappeared without any traces, just like that?”

At least that’s what I’ve been able to confirm.”

“Agent Rick.
Do you think that makes a sense now?”

“I swear to God, the words I just said out are true.”

This was also the reason Rick had visited Huss today.

No matter how much he looked through the village, he couldn’t see a single decent trace.

This is a case where everything was left alone and only the villagers disappeared in their entirety.

From Rick’s shallow insight, there was no possible explanation other than that it was the work of a wizard.

That is why he visited Agent Huss, a level combat mage, to make a report.

However, Huss showed a sullen reaction when he heard Rick’s words.

Even Huss, the wizard, seemed to have no idea, apart from.

“How could people have suddenly disappeared? I would rather put more weight on the absence of any trace of them.”

“Agent Huss.
Isn’t it possible that it was the work of a wizard?”

“The work of a wizard?”

“It is possible that the village has been obliterated by magic.”

Towards a distressed Huss, Rick lays out his theory.

However, as soon as Huss heard what he had to say, he shook his head.

Instead, he just stared at Rick with bewildered eyes.

“It’s bullshit.
If you used magic, whatever was around couldn’t be there.”

“Isn’t it possible that magic was only used on people?”

“Rick Weil.
Does your sword move while choosing between your enemies and your allies?”


“If there was such great magic, there would have been no tragedy of people dying on the battlefield from being hit by the magic of their allies.”

Rick fell silent at Huss’ words.

It was Rick’s opinion that magic could surely do something similar.

However, according to Huss, a combat wizard, no amount of magic could do such a thing.

There is no great magic that works by identifying objects and people.

That was the conclusion of this conversation.

Rick felt more frustrated than before by Huss’ realistic talk.

“…However, some of the villages disappeared without a trace.”

“I see it as even more likely that you didn’t find them than that?”

“…Agent Huss.”

“But if indeed Agent Rick’s story is true, someone might have made an offering to the evil gods.”

“An offering…?”


The moment he heard those words, Rick felt as if his chest pinched open.

It was the only clue thrown into the frustrating case.

With a sense of anticipation, Rick’s face turned to Agent Huss in front of him.

“I saw these words in a piece of literature I saw once.
It means that priests who worshipped evil gods sacrificed people for their evil deeds.”

“Evil god priests…”

“Of course, they all died during the last war.
They moved directly from the Holy Land, so there won’t be a single one of them left.”

“I see.”

“Of course I’m only assuming you’ve done your research roughly.”

Evil priests, offerings.

The three key words meshed together in Rick’s mind to form a single picture.

If there are still priests left who worship evil gods.

And what if those forces are planning something at the expense of the people.

It was not incomprehensible that four villages had disappeared at once.

Having concluded in his mind, Rick decided to search the area around the villages again.

“Agent Huss.”

“Did you feel like going back to check it out?”

“I’m going back to look for traces of the evil god.”

“Huh? Wait a minute, there…..”


Rick closes the door and walks out .

The number of towns where people have gone missing is four.

If we search every inch of that perimeter radius, we might find traces of the evil gods.

Rick, with his cold sword at his waist, moved towards his horse, which he had tied up.
