Masked Knight – Chapter 12

Night mode

Rabbit ears, Donkey ears.

 

Rody woke up once again. His whole body felt soft and weak as if someone removed all of his bones. He struggled to sit up only to find himself lying down on a soft bed with white sheets as soft as silk. It was something Rody has never enjoyed before in his entire life.

 

The room he was in was 10 times larger than his single person room in the dorms of the Imperial Academy. Although the layout of the room was simple, it had a luxurious atmosphere. The large windows were open and the thick red curtains was also drawn back. The sun shone from outside and the wind from outside the window blows into Rody’s face.

 

Rody’s first thought was that he was still alive and last night was a dream.

 

His second thought was: It’s great to be alive!

 

Nicole stood in the room. Behind her was the window and she seemed to be meditating.

 

Rody supported his body to sit up but found that he did not enough strength. He could not help but grunt and made a sound.

 

Nicole immediately turned around and moved in front of Rody’s face.

 

In Nicole’s eyes, there was a hint of concern, a little bit apologetic, and also a bit of frustration. She spoke lightly in a tone that Rody has never heard before. “Have you woken up?”

 

To wake up with the sun shining brightly on a soft clean bed and a peerless beauty gently asking you ‘Have you woken up?’

 

Was there anything that is more joyful than that in this world?

 

Rody’s heart could not help but tremble gently before he asked. “What happened to me?” After that, he remembered himself fainting and the thing that Nicole talked to him about. He nervously asked again. “What did you do to me?”

 

Nicole gave an odd expression and her eyebrows moved slightly. However, she did not speak. She merely picked up a mirror from a small table and slowly went to the bed.

 

In surprise, Rody took the mirror and looked at it for a moment. After that, he cried out in alarm.

 

“Huh?”

 

He almost subconsciously threw the mirror aside as he quickly touched his own face.

 

If there was anyone else in the room, it would be a strange sight to them.

 

Rody was on the bed trying to tear of his own face.

 

That is because his face, his original face that was half black half white, was no longer there.

 

His skin has turned normal but it was not his face! It was the face of the young man he met that night! The face of that hateful, cunning man that blew a whistle and made the horse kick him!

 

However, this was not the main reason Rody cried out in alarm.

 

That is because he has already faintly guessed that Nicole wanted him to wear the ‘God’s Smile’ to change his appearance. That is why he was not surprised that his appearance changed. Although he did think to understand why Nicole wanted to change his appearance into her brother’s appearance.

It is not that Rody did not want to think about the real reason. He was unable to.

 

Although his appearance has changed and he now has white face, lake blue eyes, strong nose and thin lips that looks similar to that cunning playboy, there was one thing that was definitely different!

 

That was Rody’s ears!

 

Basically, it is not human ears!

 

It was a pair of rabbit ears! No, it should be a pair of donkey ears!

 

The ears were sharp and long. It was longer than his head!

 

A person’s head, had ears that were as long as a rabbit’s! It was simply too funny!

 

However, Rody did not care whether it was funny or not!

 

He shouted and pulled his ears hard. He pulled it until it was red and painful. His ears even started to fall.

 

However, the burning pain made Rody very depressed. That is because he has to recognize that these were his ears and that he was not dreaming!

 

Rody lost his rational and started to scream without awareness. His voice was full of panic.

 

Nicole quickly sat down and stretched her hands. “Stop! Don’t pull anymore! You…”

 

Rody grabbed Nicole’s hands and shouted. “You! You! What did you do! What did you do to me!” His voice was full of anger and despair.

 

“I…. I don’t know! I really don’t know! I…” Nicole seemed to have lost her sense of speech as she defended herself. However, she could not break open Rody’s hands! His strength was so frightening. It was as if her hands were being held by iron pliers. Nicole’s hands started to feel pain.

 

Nicole’s eyes gave out a faint light as she quietly said. “Sleep! Sleep!” Her eyes looked straight into Rody’s eyes. Rody’s eyes were also attracted and looked back before it started to slack and become blur. Rody’s grip loosened and let go of Nicole’s hand before he fell back onto the bed with his eyes closed.

 

Nicole quickly stood up and looked at Rody and his ridiculously long ears. His face was pale and could not be described in one word.

 

God, why did it turn out like this?

 

That mask!

 

Why did ‘God’s Smile’ give him such an appearance? Her spell should not have been wrong! She did according to the Great Sage Dandong’s notes and also imagined her younger brother’s Seth’s appearance! After that she read the incantation without saying a single thing incorrectly!

 

So why did Rody’s face turn into her younger brother’s face together with those long ears?

 

That pair of ears were not human ears! It was like rabbit ears! There are no humans in this world with that kind of ears! Unless they had elven ancestry than their ears might be….?

 

Wait!

 

Nicole’s heart suddenly moved as she had a thought.

 

The ‘God’s Smile’ was created by a master elven sorcerer!  Even the mask itself was made of the elven sorcerer’s skin! That would mean that only the Elven race could use this mask! If a human uses it, it would give out this strange appearance? Just like a half-human half-elf! They would have human face with long elven ears!

 

My God!

 

She quickly stood up and ran out of the room and towards the laboratory.

She is going to read through the records and see if there is any relevant records in those ancient notes.

 

That being said, Nicole already started to have doubts about those ancient notes as according to it, Nicole, who used her sorcery to make Rody wear the mask, should also be able to take it off with her magic. However, when Rody was unconscious, Nicole had tried many times to take it off without success. Her sorcery seemed to have lost its foundation. That damn ‘God’s Smile’ continued to stay as Rody’s face.

 

There must be a way! There must be a way!

 

Nicole ran as she continued to think. She ignored the damage to her skirt caused by the branches in the way and also the two flower pots she accidentally knocked down.
