Synopsis

Chap 268 - Meruem entrusting Komugi to Pitou's care

Meruem entrusting the wounded Komugi to Pitou's care

Zeno, Netero, and Pitou all look upon the scene in disbelief. The King's face is still blackened out, but changes slightly once he looks away, while the others still remain frozen. As the King gently sets Komugi down, Zeno and Netero have a standstill because of the creature's show of kindness toward a wounded human. His expression returns to normal, and he asks Pitou to heal Komugi, entrusting her to their care. Pitou happily leaps down and tears up, though not understanding these emotions.

Netero holds up his hand for Zeno to wait, since if they intervened in this moment of love for a human life, their own justification and humanity would be lost. Zeno says this wasn't what he was given to expect, and Netero feels the same. The King says they should go somewhere else, and that this would benefit them. It's stated that Netero had paid Zeno a fortune to help him separate the King from the Royal Guards, and while he doesn't object, he feels he's lost the advantage. As Pitou summons Doctor Blythe to begin healing Komugi, the two men are distracted by this and believe the King will seize his chance to kill them. However, he merely strolls between the two, leaving both of them in shock.

Chap 268 - Youpi guarding the top of the staircase

Youpi guarding the top of the destroyed staircase

Youpi's destruction of the staircase has separated the Hunters from one another, and with multiple arms whipping through the smoke, he stands in wait to prevent any of them from ascending. Knuckle and Meleoron barely made it to the second floor, and Shoot and Morel are among the rubble below, the former's right leg badly broken. Morel says the rest is up to Shoot, using Deep Purple to surround Youpi with smoke and sending numerous "Smoke Troopers" toward him. While Youpi easily dispatches them, Morel waits for an opening, swinging his pipe at Youpi's side, but Youpi realizes the tactic and manifests another arm to block the attack. He swipes at Morel, but it's revealed to be only smoke which was wielding the pipe, as the real Morel runs away to slip by. Now enraged, Youpi turns all his attention on the escaping Morel, but knowing exactly what to do, Knuckle appears and punches Youpi hard in the side.
