I Become The Wife of The Male Lead - Chapter 64
Chapter 64: The beginning of change (2)

Eunice opened her eyes roundly while looking at me. The appearance was very cute.
“I’m Eunice Arlyn.”
Even in this situation, Eunice introduced herself as soon as she heard my name. She was really faithful to manners.
“I know. I’ve heard of you before.”
I’ve known Eunice’s name from the start, that was why I came to her.
“I’ll protect you, so don’t worry about the people around you and quickly treat him.”
Eunice seemed to have a lot of things she wanted to ask, but she re-focused on the patient in front of her.
In the meantime, I killed one, two more monsters. Eunice flinched every time she heard the monsters cry, but she didn’t close her eyes as tightly as the first time.
After I killed some of these monsters, I had a grasp of how strong the monsters were and how much mana I needed to leash out to kill them.
‘As I keep hunting, I feel like I’m just fighting against a stronger dog.’
To be honest, there were many monsters with a more disgusting appearance than this in Heilon. Compared to those, these guys were at the cute level. The problem was that there were too many of them.
“Why are there so many of them?”
There weren’t that many people who could fight against this type of monster. We were at a disadvantage in numbers.
“Is there no support?”
“I’ve sent the news to the imperial family. But, could we survive until then?”
This was a forest not far from the imperial palace. Even so, the situation was not looking good considering the amount of time for the messenger to arrive at the imperial palace and the time needed to prepare and move troops.
‘What do we do?’
I looked up at the sky subconsciously. The dark clouds were rushing in, I didn’t know it would rain soon.
It was the rainy season in the capital. And in this kind of situation, it would be even worse if it rained. A person’s body temperature would cool down, their body became stiff, and their vision would be obstructed, but monsters would hardly be affected.
While contemplating, I saw the monster running to the right and I set off a fire. But the aim was not correct because I was too hasty. The fire completely missed the monster.
Nevertheless, the running monster hurried away with just a few sparks.
In all honesty, although I just roughly guessed the original state of the monster, I knew that in the transformed state, the body of the monster was very hard. To the extent that most types of fire did not have any effect on the monster. But it seemed that before they were transformed, fire was their weakness. No matter how strong the outside became, the instinctive part of survival still remained. In other words, whether fire killed them or not, they would still be reluctant to attack.
Perhaps, I could do something.
“It’s kinda crazy, but….”
One option came to my mind.
While I was in my thoughts for a moment, I heard Eunice’s scream from behind.
I hastily tried to protect her, but there was someone faster than me. He swished his sword and swung it around the neck of the monster who was about to attack Eunice.
I smiled broadly. “Sigren, in good shape, aren’t you?”
Hearing my greeting, Sigren put on an absurd expression on his face. “Why are you still here?”
“Because I’m a combat personnel.”
He then grumbled. “You’re at a disadvantage in this type of battle. There is no escort. Leave quickly.”
“Once Eunice’s treatment is over.”
Sigren turned his head toward Eunice, whose face was white and tired.
I was thrilled to see him seeing Eunice’s face, but the reaction that came out was grim.
“Why haven’t you evacuated yet?”
“You could see it. She’s treating someone.”
“It, it’s over. It will be fine to move.”
I supported Eunice who covered her mouth. Eunice looked like she was having nausea seeing the beheaded and bleeding monster. The knight Eunice treated was moved by Sigren.
We brought the two to the central barracks where the non-combat personnels were gathered.
Sigren grabbed my arm.
“You stay here too.”
“No, I have to finish it as soon as possible.”
“It’s okay if you leave.” Sigren replied distastefully.
I tapped his hand lightly. “I’m not okay. Also, I told Abel, it’s a waste of manpower.”
“Please just nag later. Hear me out, I have a good idea.”
“What is it?”
“So I’ve been thinking. We actually don’t need to kill all the monsters, do we? First of all, the safety of the people here is our top priority. No matter how good you and the Duke are, you all won’t be able to fight while protecting all of these people. But we also couldn’t just kick them out.”
To be honest, it was obvious that death would come if it were like that.
“Look at those monsters. Their intelligence is not so high compared to their physical ability. They’re acting instinctively.”
Sigren seemed to be listening to me.
“It means that no matter how strong it gets, the instinct that the original form had is still there. Now, I just saw that they’re very reluctant to move closer when even weak flames that are clearly not going to harm them were thrown at them.”
“If you judge that way, it would be right.”
Sigren nagged a lot, but he was the type of person who acknowledged others’ views on war situations, which was based on my experience.
“So, let’s make this place a very big torch,” I said briefly.
