Masked Knight – Chapter 46

Night mode

Stunning Beauty Myka


When Rody and his three companions entered the doorway, they were immediately surrounded by a few women. The women, heavily scented with perfumes, proceeded to hug and embrace them as they led them down the red carpet. Rody’s face immediately turned red but he did not know how to get away from these women on both sides of him.


“Go! Go! Get out there and welcome the other guests! Young Master Seth is not interested in mediocre women like you.” A middle-aged woman immediately came out and shooed away the women surrounding the four of them.


The woman was over forty years old but she was still charming. Her peach-colored eyes were striking and seductive. She was probably much prettier when she was younger.


“Young Master Seth, you have not visited us for a while… Your Excellency Bayan! You should come by more often! Look at you! Why are you hiding at the back? Are you shy? Young Master Didi, Young Master Dardaniel, did you come here to have fun as well?” That woman was so slick with her words that she had completely gained the full attention the four young men.


Rody was feeling too nervous to speak. Meanwhile, Bayan scolded in jest, “Madam Sophie, enough superfluous words. Bring us the most beautiful women!”


The four then followed Sophie into the hall.


Rody had never been to an immoral place like this. The floor of the hall inside was covered by a layer of thick carpet, imported from the West. The scent of perfume and alcohol was in the air, setting up a relaxed ambiance. Ten or so tables were arranged in a circle in the hall. In the middle of the circle were six women, with revealing red sheer clothes, dancing. Rody had never seen that type of dance before. The dancers were dancing barefooted. Their movements were so smooth and fluid. When they swayed, their dresses would move and expose their graceful bodies. There were already a lot of guests at the tables. There were some strong looking warriors and well-dressed businessmen from foreign countries. Some guests looked surprised as they recognized Seth and Bayan’s group. They were probably officials of the Empire. The only thing all the guests had in common was that they each have at least one or two women by their sides, laughing happily and playfully.


On the left side of the hall, was a small table. Hidden behind a transparent bead curtain, on that table, was also a harp, about half as tall as an average person. That harp was made out of pure gold. A woman in a white dress was gently plucking the strings of the harp with her hands, playing a wonderful melody as the dancers in the hall danced to the music.


Rody who had never experienced this before in his life immediately slowed down and fell to the back of the group. His eyes could not stay away from the seductive bodies of the dancers. However, Bayan seemed to be completely not bothered and continued to follow Sophie. He did not even spare a glance at the seductive scenes in the hall and continued leading his group to the back.


Going up the stairs and after a few turns, Sophie led the four of them into a small compartment. The moment they entered the compartment, they could no longer hear the dancing and singing in the hall. The sound insulation in this compartment was remarkable.


In the middle of the hall, there were some single tables arranged. Rody’s three companions each took a seat at a table. Rody sighed and sat down beside Bayan.


Sophie smiled and clapped her hands lightly. The side door immediately opened, and a woman came out.


The woman was all dressed in white. She looked like a dignified beauty but on a closer look, her skirt had a split that opened right up to her thighs.


With each step, the skirt moved, revealing her legs. Contrary to expectations, she had the expression of someone who is calm, pure and dignified. This great contrast in appearance awakened the lust in the men. Didi and Dardaniel kept staring. They hardly moved their eyes and continued to focus at the moving skirt.


Didi laughed and was the first to speak, “Good! Sophie! I like this one! Ask her to come over here!” Dardaniel also seemed like he wanted to say something but the moment Didi spoke, he decided to stay silent. However, his face had an unhappy expression.


Bayan looked at him and smiled. “Dardaniel, do not be disheartened. I am sure Madam Sophie will pick another good one for you. Right?”


Sophie did not say anything. She merely smiled as she waited for the white-clothed woman to sit down beside Didi. She nodded to her and then raised her hands to lightly clap again.


Sure enough, another woman came out from the side door.


This woman was dressed completely different from the first one. She was tall and had a full body. Her upper body was only wearing a tight singlet. The garment clung tightly onto her well-endowed chest. Her short skirt also revealed her slender, long legs. Every step had a seductive effect. However, the most extraordinary were her captivating expression. Her eyes were like hooks that grabbed at Dardaniel’s soul.


Dardaniel’s displeasure has long since disappeared. The moment that woman appeared, he quickly reached out for her.


Sophie gave a faint smile before glancing at Bayan and said, “Your Excellency Bayan. Rolin is currently changing clothes and will take a while more.” She then glanced at Rody and gave a strange smile. “Young Master Seth, how would you like it arranged?”


Rody felt embarrassed and did not know what to say. However, with a laugh, Bayan rushed to speak, “Nonsense. Naturally, as usual! Leave us now!”


Sophie smiled faintly and glanced again at Rody before she finally left. After a while, they heard gentle footsteps from the side.


Rody suddenly smelled a fragrance. This fragrance was different from the smell of the perfumes used by most women. It was like the smell of fresh flowers that could coolly seep into the hearts of people.


Then the side entrance slowly opened and a gentle and graceful figure slowly walked in. This woman was different compared to the previous two women. Her eyebrows were like a crescent moon and eyes like the peach. Her delicate mouth smiled, showing a dimple on her left cheek. Her long white skirt was also extraordinary and seemed to be expertly tailored. One glance was enough to tell that this woman was a refined lady and unlike a prostitute.


The woman walked slowly to Bayan’s side and gave a shallow smile. She gently said, “Rolin greets Your Excellency Bayan.”


Rody suddenly remembered a phrase he read from a book.

‘The fragrance preceded the perfume. Just a dab was enough to steal a lady’s heart.’


Bayan beamed in joy but pretended to be reserved. He did absolutely nothing when Rolin sat by his side. Fortunately, he did not have Didi’s and Dardaniel’s monkey-like manners.

Now, these three people had someone to accompany them, except for Rody. Didi laughed and said, “Seth is still the best! If not for him, we will not come here today and will not have the chance to see the ‘sorrowful’ Miss Myka1.”


Bayan raised his eyebrows and thought to himself but did not say anything.


Suddenly, at that moment, there was a loud ‘bang’.  The door was forcefully pushed open by someone and a woman walked in with large strides.


The woman wore a long black dress and did not have any unnecessary accessories. She could be regarded as extremely simple. Her gentle and radiant black hair was also tied behind her in a simple manner. Her face did not seem to be plastered in any kind of powder and looked extremely simple. It was evident that she came without any makeup.


However, the moment this woman appeared, all the other women in the room, including Rolin, were immediately overshadowed.


This woman, although she did not have any form of fashion accessories on her, still seemed to be extremely beautiful. The moment she saw Rody, her eyebrows raised for a moment and then she showed a bitter expression. Her eyes, which were like the cold stars of the heavens, gazed at him resentfully and seemed like she was going mad. A drop of crystal-like tears started to flow gently from her eye and her sad expression would make break any man’s heart.


Bayan’s face showed a stunned expression. His eyes swept across the scene.


The woman looked at Rody for a long time before she slowly approached him. Her body was slender and graceful. Her every step brought out the beauty in her. Didi and Dardaniel had also been watching her until their eyes were frozen.


When Myka approached Rody, she suddenly gave a hateful glare. She stretched out a hand and then threw something onto Rody’s chest and bitterly said, “Seth. You still dare see me. This thing… I’m returning it to you!”

Rody subconsciously picked up the object to find that it was a small silver badge with the crest of the Tulip Family. Seeing the beauty’s sorrowful face, Rody’s mind became blank. He could only hear his heart beating….


While everybody was still stunned looking at Myka, suddenly, there was a loud crashing sound. The door of the pavilion flew open and hit both sides of the wall.


Walking through the doorway in big strides was a guy about two meters tall. He was extremely big sized and wore leather armor. He was also draped with an animal skin. He was bald and had a face so ferocious he looked like he was going to eat them up. The women in the hall all became afraid. “Ah!” They all screamed and trembled. Even Myka backstepped and hid behind Rody.


Didi and Dardaniel became angry. “What a joke! There are people in the Imperial Capital that dare to offend us?”


Didi and Dardaniel had already drawn out their swords. They shouted as they rushed forward.


There were two whacking sounds. The two men rushed forward but before they even attacked, the robust man kicked one of them, who flew and fell onto the floor, unable to get up again.


Translator’s notes


1 Myka. There are many ways to translate her original name. Among these are, Miao Ge, Mou Ge, Mu Ge, and Miu Ge. Among the possible names that I could use, are Myla and Myra. Since the name ends with Ge, I decided to go for Myka.
