53. Duke’s Recruitment Offer (4)
Serpens turned his body slightly and took a step back, avoiding the attack of the monster wolf that was aiming for his side.
Then he immediately rolled his feet and jumped lightly.
Another monster bit the space where he was standing. There was no Serpence already there, so the monster
is like swallowing air.
A monster thrust its claws overflowing with black magic towards Serpence, who floated in the air.
Serpens raised his sword. A sword imbued with refined divine power collided with wild black magic that ran wildly.
The power itself was stronger than the serpent’s divine power, but the mass and weight were not.
The repulsive force generated when the two energy collided flew away Serpens. At the point of arrival, the first
The great monster had its mouth wide open.
‘What’s so tight?!’
While flying, Serpens swung his sword and sent divine power somewhere.
Only then did he turn his body halfway in the air and cut the monster that had revealed his teeth to him at once.
Black blood splattered over the gray snow that had been crushed by people and wagons. The body of the huge monster collapsed and was buried in the snow.
Almost at the same time, Kwaunger overhead
Lee rang once more.
It seems that the devil used magic again. The sea I expected when Serpence blew a divine power out of nowhere.
Magic sometimes flew toward Serpens, who was now dealing with four monsters.
Ice arrows shot to induce the guy’s movement. The blade of the wind that aims at the neck. A road of fire engulfing your back.
Sometimes a creeper like a vine grew out of the snow-covered ground and targeted his ankle.
‘You use it so evenly!’
It’s not like these are the four major elements
The demons must apologize to the world.
Serpence cut through all the obstacles and gradually reduced the number of beasts.
Perhaps it was because of the violent movement, the hood that had been pressed down has been removed for a long time. Serpence’s blue-silver hair fluttered to and fro.
“I have one question.”
Suddenly, I was startled by the sound of a voice next to me. It was because he was too engrossed in seeing Serpens fighting.
When I turned my head in the direction of the sound, I saw Edna holding the staff tightly. For some reason, she had a puzzled expression on her face.
“If you take out the staff, you have to use magic, so why are you just watching?”
“Even so, that’s why I asked the question.”
“I can’t use magic.”
“Yeah?! Maybe the demons have developed a magic that can’t use magic…”
“No, because of the divine barrier that Mr. Prasidus has spread.”
There is no function to block magic in the Holy Barrier.
Just because of the barrier’s existence, it probably means that you can’t attack enemies beyond it.
“Mr Prasidus was originally like that.
Are you fighting?”
“Uh, uh…, um…, that…, over there, what are you talking about…”
this situation. Somewhere familiar
The figure of Winston standing vainly in the dark street auction house overlapped with Edna.
“Since I was young, I was forced to take responsibility for myself… It’s kind of like a chronic disease.”
“Like that… It seems that high-ranking nobles have their own difficulties.”
“In the case of Serpence, his starting sword… Ah, the shortening of the starting point.
I mean. It’s my nickname. Thanks to you, you were able to foresee the crisis of the continent in advance, didn’t you? It could be said that this is the first step to save this continent… . So I’m not swearing at all!”
“Even if it’s short, why… Anyway, I got it. Keep talking.”
Was it because there was an example of the monkey and the Monamy?
Edna had a slightly embarrassed expression on her face, but she just let it go.
“Anyway, I did it especially because of that. If Serpens had received the Holy Sword, wouldn’t he not have attached it to his colleagues as well?”
It’s just a guess, though. No matter how many times I think about it, tantrums burst out.
Perhaps reading the resentment in my chattering tone, Edna had a strange expression on her face.
“But can the messenger of the gods treat the holy sword that way?”
“I’m a messenger of God. You know, there’s a saying, ‘Why, no matter what, I’m a heretic.’
“…I get a rough idea of what it feels like. Although it doesn’t really make a lot of sense.”
Edna said with a trembling expression.
It’s because she doesn’t know Serpence’s past.
As proof of that, Euges nodded passionately and shed tears. I put my hands together and took a prayer posture.
It is the image of a believer who follows the will of God itself.
You must have been deeply moved by my words.
“By the way… Shion, did you tell Edna that you were a messenger from the gods?”
Eugenes asked me a question as he loosened his finely clasped hands.
“Yeah, there were some circumstances.”
“Did you do anything suspicious?”
“If anyone hears it, they’ll think I’m the kind of person who does strange things every day.”
Why? She smiled softly without saying a word, then turned her head and looked out the window.
It’s as if you didn’t hear anything.
Wow, what a shame!’
It was just to appease Edna’s anxiety.
Of course, either I skipped too many intermediate explanations, or the words didn’t match. That’s why I added to Edna’s confusion!
，… stop asking,
I followed Eugene and looked out the window.
Serpens stood alone in the field
all. The snow on the floor was exposed to various magics, so they disintegrated and melted away.
Serpens reached out towards the fallen monster. A silvery glow enveloped the monster’s corpse. The act of purifying the black magic remaining in the body of a dead monster.
I’m sure the monkey is hiding somewhere not far away.
The demon who blew magic and the demon who controlled demons. At least two or more But the attack no longer flew.
Thanks to the divine power, Serpence approached us with a sword that had not been stained with a drop of blood in its sheath.
And then he immediately got on the carriage.
“Aren’t you going to catch a monkey?”
Again, I stuck to the small window in the direction of the wagon and asked him a question.
“Magic came from three directions.”
At first glance, this is an answer that sounds like a peer-reviewed answer.
However, according to the Serpensian interpreter
If it were, it meant that if he went to attack one side, he would attack the wagon from the other two directions.
“Isn’t it okay to have a barrier?”
“This is a barrier maintained entirely by my divine power and mental power. As the distance increases, its power is inevitably weakened or canceled.”
It seems that the monkeys are quite far away.
“The enemies did not hide their location. Using the fact that I can’t leave my seat, I think they’re going to start a war of attrition.”
It was an open declaration that, like just before, I would send a magic beast or use magic to eat away the stamina and divine power of Serpens.
There’s really nothing to kill.
“Shall I attack?”
Our eyes turned to Edna. Serpens also looked at her through the small window.
The fact that magic has reached this point means that we can also blow magic there.
“I think it would be possible if you just point out the exact location… how about it?”
“Hmm… I don’t think it’s a bad idea.”
Serpens, who had completely ignored Edna’s power, nodded.
“Can you see the mountain about 3km away from here at 4 o’clock?”
“Yes, I see.”
“There is a large coniferous tree 25 meters below the summit. Can you see it?”
It is impossible to see it with the eyes of a normal person.
Edna shouted for a moment and drew a magic circle in the blink of an eye. The magic of the magic circle lingered in Edna’s eyes. It seems to be a magic that corrects the eyesight.
“Now I can see it.”
“It is two meters to the east of the tree.”
“I can’t see it well because it is covered by other trees… Can I just blow it away?”
“Yes. If you give me a signal, I’ll put a barrier right away.”
Edna’s magic was entangled here and there, creating a complex magic circle. Into the mouth
was constantly muttering something, and it was probably calculating the magic formula.
At the same time as her signal, the divine barrier disappeared like snow. The snow that had piled up on the barrier fell.
At the same time, a small wind blew.
It was a soft breeze at the beginning, but as the distance increased, it gradually blew away. As the snow piled up on the ground and trees was harvested, it became a huge blizzard.
On the mountain peak that Serpens pointed out
White snow rose like smoke.
Edna’s magic created a wonderful avalanche.
“how is it?”
“There is a wizard among them, so it’s unlikely he’s dead… but it will take a few days to get out.”
“Where are the other two?”
“You can think of the location you just attacked as the command center that gives orders. Other enemies may have moved to their next attack.”
Edna, who had succeeded in the attack and was filled with confidence, heard Serpence’s words
He had a missing face.
“I’ll go first.”
Edna’s energy goes down or not. Serpens started the carriage.
The enemies will attack you anyway. So I’ll go the way I should go. what kind of thinking
“In case you don’t know, I’ll go back to a place with as little people as possible.”
“It’s Serpens who hold the reins, so do it yourself.”
“It’s windy. If you don’t have anything else to say, you better close the window.”
I closed the window as he said.
When I left the nursery, I omit the information that the monkey is watching. Now that I’m here, I can tell you something good… I thought.
* * *
There were several air raids.
At first, it was blocked by Serpens’ Holy Barrier, but if we move, the Holy Barrier must also move with it.
In other words, it means that the divine power and mental power are consumed relentlessly.
Even the demons knew it, and as soon as Serpence broke the barrier, he fired magic like a dungeon.
We had to change our strategy.
The magic hit the carriage directly, but the carriage, temporarily strengthened by Edna’s magic, withstood the demon’s magic.
But the wagon swaying
The laws of physics made it impossible.
Serpens skillfully drove the horse, balancing the carriage not to overturn.
‘It is my best driver!’
I feel like I want to give you a round of applause.
It would have been if it had not been for the situation where she was holding the interior decorations to support her body in a swaying wagon.
Soon the wagon stopped swaying.
But the rumbling inside of me couldn’t stop. Was it Edna too, she opened the window
He was constantly nauseous.
When I left the orphanage, there was only one patient, Eugenes. Right now, Edna and I are in a worse state than Eugenes.
I can’t do it like this.
I opened the small window again.
“Is it far to get there?”
“Um, unfortunately… As I said, I’m on my way back, so it’s been quite some time.
this fucking shit.
I swear to the demon inside and closed the small window again.
Does the devil even have a pre-meeting for our changed strategy? The attack stopped for a while.
Edna, who had finally calmed down, turned her head back into the carriage.
The human body is a very deceitful thing, and now that the noise has subsided, I feel empty inside.
I reopened the small window I had closed.
It’s possible to ask what’s going on again this time, but Serpence’s answer was still kind.
“How about our dinner?”
“Are you always carrying food in your pockets? Cakes. Cookies…”
“You gave them all.”
“Um… I guess I’ll have to starve.”
Giving the kids snacks, Ser
There’s no way Pence couldn’t remember.
I’m sure it’s still there. Had I known it would be like this, I would have left something behind.
“Oh, that’s right! I still have hot chocolate powder and marshmallows left!”
“Sion. It’s better than starving, but that doesn’t fill your stomach.”
At my cry, Euges said he was very sorry.
But I didn’t mean it that way. Belated regret that I would have served Serpense a hot chocolate as well
Maybe Serpens had no regrets for saying that there were no sweet potatoes left, and he only served hot chocolate to Shion.
‘This was really creepy… !’
I’m sorry, but I can’t even dare to look at the guy’s face.
