Chapter 29: The Marquis wields his blade in retaliation ⑥
TL: Skip this chapter if you have a weak stomach.
As I announced the sentence of waist cutting, the men in charge attached chains to the handcuffs that restrained Ghazel and Armada, hooked them to a support pole and pulled as hard as they could.
In just about 20 seconds, the two were lifted up.
“W-Wait! Please wait!!”
“NOO AAAAHHH!! HELP ME!!”
As soon as Ghazel and Armada realized their situation, they began to beg for their lives. Their voices were far more trapped than the earlier pleas for their lives.
Well, that’s to be expected when the execution is just around the corner.
Now …… the finishing touch.
“Both Viscounts, come up to the stage. Leon, you too of course.”
My words made the three nominated members’ faces tense up. Carmine, the youngest, was already on the verge of tears. But I’m not going to show any mercy at all.
At the sound of my piercing voice, the three of them came up to the stage with their faces pale.
“Help me! Leon!! Argus!!”
“Leon!! Carmine!! Quick, stop Giorg!!”
Ghazel and Armada began to call for help from the three people on the stage, just as they had done earlier. Of course, they didn’t make any move to save their lives. My actions were so incomprehensible that I was now considered a monster by these three people.
When Aisha came up on the stage with a long sword, I grinned, put my hand on the hilt, and pulled it out. The polished blade of the sword reflected the sun’s rays, perhaps giving it a kind of divine quality.
“G-Giorg! Wait! Please wait! I’m really sorry! I’ve changed my mind! So please don’t kill me!”
I smiled and saw the hope in Ghazel and Armada’s expressions that they would be saved. Apparently, they interpreted my smile as forgiveness. They say people believe what they want to see and believe, but I didn’t expect this much.
I swung my sword in silence. The long sword sliced through Ghazel’s mouth and stopped him in his tracks.
Realizing that there was a blade to cut his mouth, Ghazel began to shake and shudder. Blood poured out of the slit mouth and fell on the platform.
“What’s wrong? Are you done begging for your life?”
At the sound of my eyes and voice, the voices of Ghazel and Armada stopped. I smiled contentedly and withdrew the long sword from Ghazel’s mouth.
“Take a good look for yourselves. You will see what happens to those who underestimate me.”
Under my piercing gaze, Leon and the others nodded repeatedly, shaking and trembling.
“Argus, Carmine ……, My father diverted the funds of the Zafing’s family through your scum. It’s ugly how they use it to satisfy their own desires. Normally, I would have you and your family on the execution block as accomplices to these people.”
“Do not disappoint me, okay? Your lives are to be used only for the Zafing family. Don’t forget that I can send you and your family to the executioner’s block at any time.”
I do not trust Argus and Carmine. More precisely, I don’t trust either of the Viscounts. Both families are currently under the umbrella of the Zafing family, but that is not based on trust. I myself am keeping both of these families to use and destroy them, and it would be far easier to bind them with fear. It’s not going to be a very long relationship anyway, so that’s enough.
I then turned my gaze to Leon, and he began to clatter his teeth.
“Leon, have mercy on them. Say hello to your parents for the last time.”
Leon stood in front of them, trembling. The unusual appearance of Leon seemed to give both Ghazel and Armada an idea of how Leon was being treated.”
“Fu …… As I thought.”
Leon’s body trembled at my words. The expression on the faces of Ghazel and Armada was one of despair. Instead of being angry at me for making Leon suffer in some way, all I saw was despair that they would not be able to save themselves.
“Leon, that’s enough. I’m done checking.”
“Instead of worrying about your future, they were despairing about not being able to save themselves. In the end, they only have the principle of satisfying their selfishness. They lack what is important as human beings even more than I do.”
“Well, ……, now that you understand that you can’t be saved no matter what, let’s get rid of you.”
I said and swung my long sword. As the sound of cutting air echoed around us, Armada shuddered.
“Armada, you’ve gotten a little smarter in your last moments. I was going to mercilessly shove a sword in your mouth if you spoke at this stage.”
Armada is unable to make a sound. She cowered from the cold killing intent that emanated from me.
As I said that, I flashed my long sword. The long sword I wielded cut Armada’s waist in two without showing any resistance, as if I had cut through water, and she fell to the ground from the waist down. At the same time, her organs spilled out from the cut wound.
Armada looked dumbfounded, but the cheers of the residents must have made her realize the situation she was in. Looking down, she seemed to see that her lower body had been cut in two and her organs were spilling out.
Armada must have felt a sudden surge of pain as he realized the situation he was in. The pain was so great that she almost shouted, but she could no longer do so.
I flashed my long sword once more and cut both of Armada’s arms in half. The upper half of Armada’s body, separated from both arms, fell directly onto the execution table.
“You will have a hard time until death comes to save you, but please take your time and enjoy the pain.”
I said to Armada and turned my gaze to Ghazel.
Ghazel gulped when I looked at him, and at the same time started leaking urine from his crotch.
“Goodbye, Father… Please suffer and die.”
I flashed my long sword and, just like by Armada, the lower half of Ghazel’s body fell onto the execution table, followed by the spilling of his guts.
“Gee, gee …….”
Ghazel looked as if he felt no sensation other than pain. I swung my long sword again, as I had done with Armada, and severed both arms, and the upper half of Ghazel’s body also fell onto the execution table.
From now on, the two of them would experience the salvation of death in as little as ten minutes, but if it was longer, they would suffer for a few more minutes. The time before death arrives must seem infinitely long to both of them.
In the meantime, they can reflect on their own actions, or they can put a curse on me.
In fact, if they wanted to throw curse words at me in the form of a grudge, I would have the pleasure of dealing with them again.
When I turned my attention to the three people on the stage, I saw that all three of them had lost all the blood on their faces. I guess none of them had expected to witness such a brutal death.
Ghazel and Armada were still moaning in pain, unable to die. The fear of not knowing when it will happen to them is incomparable.
“Aisha, let’s go.”.
I took the scabbard Aisha was holding, shook off the blood from the long sword, put it in the scabbard, and stepped down from the execution table.
The people had begun to applaud my completely undisturbed appearance. Thanks to the two of them screaming at me in an uncontrollable manner, I was able to give them the impression that I was dependable rather than being cruel for giving my own father the punishment of waist cutting.
With this, my revenge was over.
With the execution of the two criminals, I would start a new life. I know that my path will not be the same without death and suffering.
But I can’t stop myself from walking this path.
Just as a tiger or a lion cannot live any other way, I cannot and will not live any other way than as Giorg-Leom-Zafing.
I am proud to be able to walk this path with Aisha and Roy following me….. And I am proud to be able to walk this path with my friends who are supporting me even though they are not here.
Now, let’s go …….
I left the execution ground, waving my hands to the people who cheered me on.

What an ending

It was a short revenge story but an effective one. The MC achieved everything he wished for basically from chapter 1 and did not waste time. I felt the MC was a bit too emotionless so seeing what he was thinking or how he felt about it was a bit lacking imo him gloating more or getting angry would have had a bit more of a feeling of catharsis I think. Thanks for the translation.

If the author had filled out the beginning of the story rather than starting near the ending it would have helped.

WTF is with 10 minutes of life after being cut in half and hands cut off? They’l die in like half a minute from blood loss…

Meh blade was too sharp, in my experience, cutting something up alive with a dull blade would make it scream more. Proof: Ask the dog I found, nvm you can’t

Una historia corta pero muy buena. quede con la intriga de la boda de Leon y si Ace logro recuperar a su prometida. del resto estuvo bastante brutal como llevo a cabo la venganza y también me sorprendió que tenia una organización secreta que me hizo recordar a la Raiz Ambu de Naruto jajaja.
