C9: The Way of the Phantom Thief (2)
That night at the gate of Marquis Trajan’s residence two people were arguing.
“That’s why! I can’t do anything about security without entering the villa!”
“Shut up! Who would allow lowly people like you into my house? Where do you think you are?”
One of the people arguing is a fat man wearing gorgeous clothes. The other was Matilda, a blonde female knight who was the captain of the royal guard.
“Phantom thief Shadow? There’s no way a thief can get past the guards of this house! I don’t need you knights to help me!”
“Marquis, please don’t underestimate Shadow! He may be dressed like a fool, but he’s definitely a top-notch magician!”
The reason they were arguing was the warning letter that had been sent to both Marquis Trajan’s residence and the security forces a few hours ago.
“Tonight, the Marquis of Trajan’s Estate presents us with the Eye of the Holy Dragon, Phantom Thief Shadow.”
The Phantom Thief Shadow is a great thief who has been causing a stir throughout the continent for the past year. No one knows the identity of the silver-masked thief. However, he was undoubtedly one of the world’s best wizards.
“That man is dangerous! A lot of noblemen’s mansions have been damaged in the past year! For the Marquis’s safety, please let me stand guard inside the mansion!”
Upon receiving the letter of warning, Matilda immediately arrived at the Marquis’ residence with her security team in tow. However, the Marquis Trajan, who she was supposed to be guarding, stubbornly refused to allow the guards to enter his residence, and an argument ensued at the entrance to the grounds.
“Hmm, what can a lady knight like you do? If you want to be an escort in bed, you’re the only one I’ll let in, okay?”
The Marquis said, eyeing Matilda’s body. Matilda’s face turned red and she covered her chest with her hands. With her golden hair braided in the back, Matilda’s appearance is quite beautiful, even if it is strictly evaluated. Her breasts, wrapped in her dress armor, are very full and beautiful, and it is understandable that the Marquis would be interested in her.
“No, don’t be silly! We’re here for…….”
“Huh, then go stand guard around the compound! You’re not allowed on the grounds!”
The Marquis forcibly broke off the conversation and walked into the mansion. Matilda watched his back with gritted teeth, and as soon as she saw the Marquis enter the mansion, she shouted loudly.
“Aaah! Who do you think we came here to do that for! That swine!”
“Captain! Your voice is too loud!”
The second-in-command, a male knight, hurriedly blocked Matilda’s mouth as she tried to swear.
“I understand your feelings, but you’re dealing with a senior nobleman. If you go against them, you will not get off scot-free!”
Matilda looks up at the Marquis house with regret.
“……There’s no way around it. If we guard outside the mansion, Shadow will eventually appear. If we don’t let him inside, it will be the same.”
“That’s right, let’s get our heads together and start guarding the place.”
“Mm……Phantom Thief Shadow. I will not tolerate any more of your misdeeds. I will protect the peace of the capital!”
Matilda’s beautiful face tightened with determination and she walked out indignantly.
