Trigger warning: detailed gore. Not done by MC or FL though.
Alaine unleashed a kick with extreme speed at the huge door before us, flinging the door open.
Being on the receiving end of Alaine’s kick, the huge door flew through the air and rolled around, making great ruckus. The huge door made from hard iron that was already closed tight that was standing before our destination to the underground area… That huge door physically opened just by a single kick from Alaine.
The underground. There was a large space in the underground. There were 9 pillars surrounding a central platform. The whole place was being illuminated by nearby lights.
As soon as the door was opened, we could feel the thick scent of something rotting. The smell of blood. The smell of death.
First Prince Aquilane was vomiting terribly, probably because he was not accustomed to the scene of war.
No, I think his reaction is inevitable.
Our party was greeted with the sight of an excessively terrible massacre aftermath.
The knights accompanying First Prince Aquilane as his bodyguards looked pale. Their bodies were shaking terribly. Only Alaine and I who seemed to be unaffected with the sight before us.
….. I wonder am I such a heartless person? I don’t remember ever becoming a psychopath that can witness a gruesome scene like this and not think about anything?
With that kind of thought running through my mind, I continued to gaze at the scene before me calmly.
It seemed these 9 huge pillars that were built to resemble the shape of a cross were the one that supported the structure of this space. On each pillar, there was a corpse of a headless and naked woman tied to it. The headless part of their body was starting to fester, I could see the sopping pus on it.
…….What caught my attention more than the headless part was the condition of the corpse’s belly. The belly was cut cleanly, all of the internal organs, except for the uterus, was removed and laid scattered below.
And then.. The uterus was cleanly cut in the middle and left in the corpse’s belly… Judging from the clean cut in the middle, it seemed….. Something was being taken out from the uterus.
After vomiting most of the content of his stomach, First Prince Aquilane was now shaking greatly. He pointed toward a table that was placed in the middle of this space.
That table was illuminated by the brightest light in this space. On that table, there laid the heads of those headless 9 women. Those heads… The eyes were gouged out and the mouth was being opened wide.
The mouth was wide open and there was something dark brown inside……… A bright red thing. Red, red, red…. A small red object. I couldn’t know for sure what that deep red object was but after a closer look, I could see hands, legs and something that you could call a head.
A fetus was forcefully pushed into the mouth of all nine corpse’s head. It seemed the fetus was taken from the uterus of those women and then their body was tied up onto the 9 pillars that resembled the shape of a cross.
T/N: Definitely stuff from a nightmare. I’m amazed the author can write such a gruesome scene like this…
