Masked Knight - Chapter 82
Chapter 82: The Beautiful Prisoner
Rody just stared at Muse who was lying on the ground. He was at a loss and did not know what
to do. It was something he found even more difficult than risking his life to fight Reuenthal.
He was stunned for a long while until he smelled the scent of blood. Rody then sighed and
smiled, ’’What a disgrace. The person who thoroughly defeated me is a woman. If people ever
find out, I will die of shame.’’
Out of curiosity, Rody took a peek under Muse's black veil and saw the pale face of a woman.
When Rody saw her thin and pallid face, he could not move his eyes away.
He could hear his heart beating.
This is bad, this is bad. This is very bad. No wonder she covered her face. If she did not, all the
women in the world would have been infuriated while all the men in the world would have been
Rody had met a lot of beautiful women. Nicole was like an expensive flower, Angel had a likable
personality, Jojo was seductive while Myka was cool and elegant. Each of them had their own
strengths and they were all extremely beautiful. He looked at the unconscious female sorcerer.
She had knitted eyebrows and her nose was slightly wrinkled. Although her snow-white skin
looked a bit pale due to the blood loss, it did seem like she was very fair. Her other facial
features were also very exquisite. Her knitted eyebrows were full and nicely curved. Her
eyelashes were beautiful too. She nibbled her lips in pain even though she was unconscious and
it exposed her white teeth. If she had woken up and smiled at Rody, she would have definitely
been more beautiful than all the other women.
After looking at her for a long time, Rody sighed and said, ’’I am not trying to take advantage of
you. This is to save your life. I cannot watch you bleed to death.’’
It took a lot of willpower for him to hold on to his rationale. He gritted his teeth and held Muse
gently in his arms. He then bandaged her shoulder with the pieces of clothing he had torn off. It
was hard to avoid touching her soft skin as he bandaged her. Rody bit his teeth together and
tried to think about the time he bandaged the broken leg of his neighbor's ewe when he was
younger. It was not easy to have self-control when he was in front of this extremely beautiful
Ignoring the sweet smelling and delicate figure in front of him, he hastily finished bandaging
her shoulder and laid her back on the ground. Rody then gave a sigh of relief. He suddenly
heard Muse groan softly. Rody hit himself on the head as he remembered that a seriously
injured person would be thirsty after losing a lot of blood. However, there were no leather flasks
or containers nearby. He looked at the ground around Muse and saw a lot of broken bottles.
They were all kept on her body but fell out when Rody tore her clothes.
Rody picked up a few bottles and he opened one of them. Then, he took a sniff. He smelled
something fragrant. Whatever the contents were, he drained them and then he went deeper
into the forest to look for water.
Where there was a forest, there would surely be water. Sure enough, Rody brought back some
water in the bottle just after a short time.
Muse was feeling dizzy. She felt cold one moment and warm the next. Her shoulder still burned
with pain but her lips felt something moist. Bewildered, Muse struggled in her stupor to see the
Duke of the Tulip Family frowning at her. He was holding a damp cloth and was applying water
to her lips.
Muse had never faced hardships before this disaster. Her greatest skills were also disabled. She
had lost the very thing she could rely on the most and was betrayed by her own subordinates.
Although she was able to quarrel with Rody earlier, she was in a state of panic. She saw the duke
looking at her; sweating. Her heart felt warm and she struggled to sit up.
She moved her body and noticed that something was wrong. She looked down and saw her
clothes scattered everywhere. Her shoulder was also wrapped with her inner clothes which
Rody had torn off. The cloth she used to wrap around her breasts had also come off.
I was unconscious earlier. Does this mean that he has seen and touched my body?
The moment she thought of it, she screamed. She was so scared that her face turned blue. When
she saw the duke's smiling face, she panicked and was enraged. She screamed again. Not
knowing where she got her energy from, she rushed forward to slap him in the face.
The sound of the slap was loud. Rody was too close and he was not prepared. As a result, a palm
print could be seen on his face. Muse still felt embarrassed and angry so, she tried to slap him
again. However, this time Rody reached out and grabbed her wrist. Muse struggled but Rody's
grip was like an iron pincer. She did not have any magic at that time and was equivalent to an
ordinary person. How could an ordinary person fight a senior warrior in terms of strength?
This angered Rody and he cursed, ’’Damn you! If I knew you would do this, I would not have
saved you! I should have let you bleed to death!’’ Letting go of Muse's hands, he stood up and
stepped back a little.
Muse gritted her teeth and cried out, ’’You dare... you dare take advantage of me! I will definitely
’’Take advantage of you?’’ Rody sneered. ’’You think I want to look at you? Is a person who is
neither male nor female nice to look at?’’
Muse's face turned red as she started to think of a reply. However, she never had any experience
scolding anyone even as she grew up. In the Roland Continent, she was a noble. She usually just
needed to speak in a serious tone or stare and others would be scared. She had never used or
even heard any offensive language before.
Rody realized that Muse had nothing left to say. Feeling pleased with himself, he smiled. After
that, he said, ’’I was your prisoner for 10 days but now you are my prisoner. I will ask you a few
questions so, you better answer me honestly.’’
Muse sneered and did not speak. She raised her head and angrily stared at Rody.
Rody smiled and said, ’’That's right. You can be angry but do not be cold and indifferent like a
stone. Hmm, you don't really look like a woman. In fact, you don't even look like a person.’’
Muse's expression changed. She narrowed her eyes as she looked at Rody and said, ’’Say what
you want! You have disgraced me too much. Just kill me now. If not, I will personally kill you
after I recover!’’
Rody waved his hand and ignored what she said. ’’That is your choice! Now let me ask you, what
are you people from the Roland Continent trying to do here? What kind of collaboration do you
have with Reuenthal?’’
Muse scoffed without looking at Rody. She closed her eyes and pretended not to hear anything.
Rody froze for a moment before his face changed and said, ’’If you do not reply, I can leave on
my own! If you stay here alone, you will also die!’’ Muse did not flinch. She still kept her eyes
closed and remained silent.
Rody was silent for a moment but his face grew red and he loudly said, ’’Fine! You might not be
afraid of death but there are still other things you are afraid of! I can take off all of your clothes
and see whether you are a man or a woman!’’
Muse was startled. Her facial expression changed slightly. She opened her eyes and looked at
Rody before saying, ’’That is also your choice! I am now your prisoner. Whatever you do, I will
be unable to resist! Just remember, if I do not die, I will kill you one day!’’ After she had finished
speaking, she closed her eyes again. Although she was terrified, she was also prepared for
whatever that might be coming her way.
Rody was stunned and there was another moment of silence. He sighed and slowly said, ’’Forget
it. We don't even know if we can escape from this grassland! You took me as your prisoner for
10 days and I do not know how far away Watt Fortress is. Let us first get out of here alive before
we discuss any further.’’
After he was done, Rody turned around to walk towards the woods. After he took a few steps, he
turned back and said, ’’I am going to find us something to eat so that we will have the energy to
walk. We are still surrounded by the grasslands. I am afraid that your subordinates who
betrayed you are still searching for you. If you wish to die, you may go ahead and escape first.’’
Ignoring Muse who was gnashing her teeth, Rody walked away in large strides. He angrily
scolded Andy in his mind, ’’Old fellow, you told me to take off her clothes?! Hah! Your methods
Rody's physical strength was gradually restored. After being in the forest for a short while, he
caught a pheasant. He looked for a sharp stone to cut the pheasant open and then he washed it
Fortunately, it was daytime so he was not afraid that the fire would be detected. Rody found a
few branches and lit them up. He then stuck a long branch into the pheasant and roasted it.
Muse sat there refusing to look at Rody. However, she could smell the scent of the roasted
pheasant from time to time. She was exhausted from all the blood she had lost and she also had
not eaten for most of the day. As a result, she could not help but feel hungry. Although she was
flustered because of the smell, she still refused to show any weakness.
Rody ignored Muse and ate his meal. After that, he extinguished the fire and buried everything
else in the ground.
Muse could not help but opened her eyes to look at Rody. She frowned and asked, ’’What are you
Rody looked back at her and gently said, ’’Covering up our traces. Your subordinates will surely
be searching around. If they were to find this place and see this, they would know that we were
here. They would definitely be able to follow us. Don't you even know this?’’
Muse's face turned slightly red. Although she was powerful, she did not know about things like
covering up traces. On top of that, with her extraordinary strength, she was usually the one
chasing people down to kill them. How would she know about preventing people from chasing
Right after Rody packed everything up, he walked towards Muse. Ignoring her struggles and
screams, he carried her on his back and walked out of the woods.
Although Muse was frightened and continued to struggle, Rody was much stronger than her.
He chose a direction and walked in big strides. Muse still wanted to shout but Rody stuffed her
mouth with something without turning his head around.
The thing in her mouth was oily and fragrant. It was a pheasant drumstick. She then heard
Rody speak in a serious and low voice, ’’Shut up. Those men are certainly still looking for us. If
you shout, you will catch their attention!’’ Pausing for a moment, Rody continued, ’’Do you think
I want to take advantage of you? I have no interest in a person who is neither man nor woman.’’
Muse's mouth was full of the roasted pheasant. She listened to the Duke of the Tulip Family and
decided to keep quiet. However, she could not tell if she was feeling angry or shameful.
