Chapter 40: I’m New Here, But I’ve Never Heard of You
Translator: EndlessFantasy Translation Editor: EndlessFantasy Translation
Flanders heard a familiar sound in the air, and his heart skipped a beat.
Was he finally found?
This sound was familiar because he had heard it on the roof of Tensley University half an hour ago.
It was the sound of Teach crushing the strange radar.
At this moment, a voice appeared in the air.
A masked woman was floating in the air, staring at him.
Although Flanders could not see the strength of the other party, she was definitely not weak.
The reason was very simple.
After knowing that the Sarkos branch had been wiped out by him, there were still people who dared to chase after him.
Did it not mean that the other party’s strength far exceeded the strength of all the members of the Sarkos branch?
Soon, nine figures rushed over from the Sarkos branch.
All of them stopped behind Zero.
Each of them had quite a strong aura. With just a glance, one could tell that they were not some stinking fish or rotten shrimps.
After a while, the last figure finally arrived.
Looking at the old man in the sky, Flanders’s expression became even more solemn.
This old man was obviously not an ordinary person.
Apophis seemed to recognize this person as well and communicated with Flanders through his mind.
“Master, this old man’s name is Garros.
“His strength has already reached B+.
“He can be considered the second strongest person in the Mage Association.”
Second strongest. This could explain everything.
However, just as Flanders was about to think about how to deal with these people, he was slightly stunned.
He turned around and looked at Apophis. He finally understood why his location was exposed.
Apophis had been detected by the strange detection radar!
Although Apophis had been subdued by Flanders, Flanders was not human.
In other words, Apophis was not a human being at the moment. It was still a strange creature!
Since it was a strange creature, it would be detected by the strange detection radar.
Apophis did not know that Flanders would not be detected by the radar.
Hence, he did not understand what Flanders was looking at him for.
However, Flanders did not intend to say anything.
This was his own mistake, not Apophis.
The most important thing to do at the moment was figure out how to deal with these 11 people.
Garros, who was in the air, took a look at Flanders and the magic sword behind him. He recognized it at a glance.
Although its appearance was different, the aura could not be concealed.
This was the weapon that the Sword King used!
At this moment, the greed in Garros’s eyes became even more obvious.
If he could subdue the scarecrow and the magic sword at the same time, he would be able to compete with Nikorei.
It would not even be a problem if he wanted to subdue her.
One of them was the strange creature that helped that trash, the Sword King, rise to the top and become the head of the Sarkos branch of the Mage Association.
The other was the strange creature that had completely wiped out the Sarkos branch.
These two strange creatures had extraordinary strategic significance.
Seeing Garros’s expression, Zero naturally understood.
She took a step forward and said in a clear voice, “Scarecrow, I’ll only say this once.
“I’ll give you a chance to submit now.
“Do you understand what I mean?”
Looking at the masked woman in front of him, Flanders let out a cold smile.
“Do you think you’re worthy?”
Hearing these words, a trace of anger flashed in Zero’s eyes.
However, the scarecrow was Lord Garros’s prey, so she naturally did not dare to casually attack him.
Even though she was extremely angry, she could only suppress her anger and wait for Garros’s instructions.
Looking at the arrogant and unruly appearance of the scarecrow in front of him, Garros did not get angry. Instead, he laughed.
“Hehehehe, this really isn’t bad at all.
“All these years, there have been at least 8,000 strange deaths by my hand.
“No one has ever dared to speak to me like that.
“Could it be that all the strange creatures in this world have forgotten the name ‘Garros’?”
Originally, Garros had only planned to use this method to threaten the scarecrow.
After all, it was going to be very troublesome to defeat the scarecrow and make him submit. At the same time, he could not kill him.
It would likely damage the team he had trained.
This was a consequence he was unwilling to bear.
Therefore, it was best to make the scarecrow surrender himself.
However, when Flanders heard this, he noticed something.
Since he had been in this world, there did not seem to be many strange creatures.
In other words, there were two possibilities.
One, Garros was bragging.
However, being the second strongest in the Mage Association, there was no need for him to brag.
The other possibility was that there must be some way for strange creatures to exist in another space.
Otherwise, why would there be so few strange creatures in this world?
Thinking of this, Flanders had a rough outline of a plan in his heart.
Of course, he still had to solve Garros’s problem first.
Flanders looked at Garros and said in a neither servile nor overbearing manner, “I’m sorry, I’m new here. I’ve never heard of you before.”
This time, many of Garros’s subordinates behind him were already filled with killing intent.
This strange creature was way too arrogant!
He actually dared to disrespect the great Sir Garros.
Zero wanted to teach the scarecrow a lesson.
Garros was also a little angry.
It was obviously impossible for the scarecrow to be subdued without bloodshed.
Since that was the case, he would teach the scarecrow a lesson.
“You guys, go easy on him.
“Don’t take his life.”
Hearing Garros’s words, the 10 people behind him instantly split up.
Five people charged at Flanders, while the other five chanted spells behind them, ready to cast their magic.
Just from this point alone, one could see that the 10 people in front of him definitely had long-term battle experiences and tacit understanding.
The entire process was incredibly smooth and without any disharmony.
However, Flanders believed that he was not afraid of them at all.
Previously, he was able to deal with the Sarkos branch and remain unscathed precisely because he had the biggest trump card in his hand.
His Cursed Scarecrow.
With this skill, he could completely transfer the damage inflicted on him to others.
Moreover, transferring the damage to others did not require any of his own strength.
In other words, it was his scapegoat!
If he relied on his own ability to transfer the damage this time…
He would not be able to transfer it if the damage exceeded his own strength.
However, if he was just looking for someone to take his place, it would be a completely different concept.
Looking at the five people charging at him, Flanders had no intention of backing down.
He was even filled with fighting spirit.
“I really want to see what expression the second-in-command of the Mage Association will have before he dies.”
