Interceptors : The Beginning of the Guild - Episode 8

Eight led Wolf to a somewhat abandoned building near the cemetery. At the gates of the building stood a fair-skinned female arch bishop with silverish hair and flaming red eyes.
“You’re late” the arch bishop said when the two were approaching the building.
“Sorry Flame” Wolf apologized “I had a few run-ins”
“Tell that to Sir Lancelot” she coldly replied.

Flame led them into the dark building and summoned fire to light up the torches within the building. She then hands one of the torches to Wolf and told him to head down to the basement where Sir Lancelot is waiting for him.

Following Flame’s instruction, Wolf descends the stairwell when he heard a loud and eerie creak behind him. Wolf quickly turned and looks, just to see them closing the gates.
Surprise, Wolf asked “Why’d you do that for?”
“Sir Lancelot wants to see you privately.” Eight replied
Wolf stood there, feeling a little hesitant. Upon seeing this, Eight added with a smile “Don’t worry, Flame and I will be waiting for you outside”

As Wolf descends further down the stairs, he wondered why his master would want to see him under such conditions. Sure, he always does things on a whim but even so, Wolf felt that this was unusual. Upon finally reaching the foot of the stairs, Wolf placed the torch in the torch holder nearby and turned into the basement. Unlike the rest of the building, it was quite well lit and in the corner of the room stood Lancelot.

“You finally arrived, Wolf” he greeted “I was worried you wouldn’t come”

Lancelot pulled down the lever near him and the gate behind Wolf dropped down so quickly, he was unable to react. Confused, Wolf turned to question his master, but was cut short when Lancelot started landing massive attacks on him. All Wolf could do was defend himself.
“S-stop!! What are you doing?!” Wolf pled.
But Wolf’s pleas had no effect on him. Lancelot just went on and on, one attack after another. Lancelot then bashed Wolf so hard it broke his defenses and followed up with a shoulder thrust which made Wolf flew backwards, slamming against the iron gate behind.

Lancelot walked towards Wolf and aimed his sword at his neck.
“Wolf, Wolf, Wolf.” He said “You’re as na├»ve as ever. I knew one day it’ll end up like this”
“What are you talking about?” Wolf asked, still confused.
Lancelot then kneeled next to Wolf, with his sword still aiming at his neck.
“I never told you this but…” Lancelot paused for a minute and gave Wolf an evil smile “I’ve always hated you right down to the bone. Ever since the day we met.”
“LIES!” Wolf shouted
Lancelot grabbed Wolf by the hair and threw him to the center of the room.
“That’s what you think, Wolf. You! Who can’t comprehend the truth!” Lancelot said loudly
“NO!” Wolf shouted as he got up slowly
Lancelot ran towards Wolf and kneed him in the abdomen, toppling Wolf down again. He pulled him up roughly by the shoulder and swung his sword at Wolf again. Wolf managed to parry in time. Lancelot pushed down his sword harder and leaned close to Wolf and said
“I said it and I’ll say it again. I’ve always hated you, Wolf. You and your sick pride.”
“But you took me in when I had nowhere to go…….!” Wolf shouted and pushed back Lancelot at the same time.
Lancelot then charged at Wolf and started attacking him repeatedly again while Wolf went into defensive mode again.
“The only reason I made you my disciple was because I thought I could use you for GM’s plans!” Lancelot revealed.
