Chapter 42.2 : A Joke of A Fight In The Confectionary Castle
Then, I rotated my body, causing my sword to chop the other two ogres.
With this, only the female ogre and the Silver Witch were left.
「HOW DARE YOU!! TAKE THIS!!」
The female ogre raised her hands. Black mist-like gas came out from her sleeves.
「Black, BLASTING INSECT!」
The little insects that came out from the female ogre’s sleeve were heading towards me.
「SUCH THINGS CAN’T STOP ME!」
I unfolded my wings and blasted those insects with my feather arrows.
The insects knocked down by my feather arrows vanished with small explosions.
「THEN, HOW ABOUT THIS!?」
Electricity crackled in the female ogre’s hands.
「O THUNDER SNAKE! STRANGLE THY ENEMY TO DEATH!」
The electricity emanating out of her hands assumed the figure of a snake and shot towards me.
With a yell, I took on the thunder snake with my sword.
「DISAPPEAR! LIGHTNING BLADE!」
My sword shined as it absorbs the thunder snake.
The ogre exclaimed with a shocked face.
With a loud yell, I slashed my sword.
The thunder slash remained undisturbed as it neared the ogre.
「NO WAY!! THIS KUJIG I~S!」
Such was the ogre’s reaction when she was about to die.
The thunder-based attack sliced and penetrated through the ogre and continued towards the Silver Witch.
However, it vanished before it could touch the Silver Witch.
Naturally, the Silver Witch was also unscathed.
「NOW YOU’RE THE ONLY ONE LEFT!」
I pointed my sword.
The Silver Witch stood up from the throne while saying so.
「Naturally! No matter how many of these ogres you gather, they can’t defeat me!」
Saying so, I pointed at the corpses of the ogres.
But the Silver Witch was shaking her head in denial.
「Far weaker than Kuroki…」
Saying so, the Silver Witch stared at me with a piercing cold gaze.
「I heard that both of you honed your swordsmanship in the same place but … Kuroki’s swordplay is far sharper than yours. It was my plan to withdraw if it turned out that you were more powerful than my expectations … However, I’ve changed my mind. Those ogres have been useful as tools to measure your power.」
Saying so, she then set a stance with her scythe.
「Here I come, Shirone. This Kuna is going to erase the traces of your existence.」
Hearing her words made me even more irritated.
「DON’T LOOK DOWN ON ME!」
Kicking the floor, I crossed the distance between us in one go.
When I arrive right in front of her, I swung down my sword.
The Silver Witch used her scythe to parry my attack.
My stance crumbled as my attack got parried by her.
Thinking so, I twisted my body.
The scythe came down to take my life.
Feeling that I wouldn’t be able to parry this blow, I unfolded my wings to change the trajectory of the blow.
A bit of the feathers was plucked from my wings while doing so.
After fixing my stance, I pushed my sword forward.
Smiling lightly, the Silver Witch turned her scythe to parry my sword.
Following right after the parry the handle part of the scythe hit my abdomen. I became careless since I was only watching the blade part of the scythe.
「Don’t just keep looking at the edge of the blade … That’s what Kuroki taught me.」
I retreated to open up some distance between us.
This girl was powerful.
I glared at the Silver Witch.
「My training with Kuroki is of really great value…」
The Silver Witch smiled delightfully.
What the hell does that Kuroki do when I’m not by his side. Now, I’m really angry.
I unfolded my wings and shot my feather arrows. As I expected, the feather arrows were repelled right in front of the Silver Witch. However, it was just a feint.
I kicked the ceiling and then went behind the Silver Witch.
Increasing the output of my magic power, I accelerated the movement of my body.
「TAKE THIS! Swallow Flight, Thousands Winged Blades!!」[TL: 千翼飛燕刃 literally Swallow Flight, Thousands Winged Blades]
I send forth a thousand slashes towards her at a stretch.
But my slashes couldn’t reach the Silver Witch. It was as if there was an invisible wall blocking my attacks.
「No way … How can you erect several magic shields at once…」
The barrier that blocked my attack was a magic shield.
In normal cases, no matter how powerful someone was, they couldn’t use more than one magic shield at a time. However, she was using several magic shields at once.
Not even Chiyuki-san could do that.
As far as I knew, Rena was the only one capable of doing this.
Rena didn’t participate that often in fights but she was quite powerful herself.
She specializes in magic related to barriers. I had a mock battle with her once before, and none of my attacks could reach her at that time.
As a side note, Rena also used mind magic and healing magic.
According to Nao-chan, Rena was like a close-combat priest, but then this Silver Witch might be the same type as her.
「Ninefold Magic Barriers. Kuna can deploy nine magic barriers at the same time. According to Kuroki, it seems that Kuna specializes in barrier and healing magic. Nevertheless, I was a little surprised by your attack just now … If it was Kuroki, dodging your previous attack would just be a piece of cake, but the current Kuna can’t do that.」
It was just as she said, Kuroki dodged that attack before.
And not just this move. When I fought him in the Holy Republic of Lenaria, Kuroki easily saw through all of my attacks and dodged them all.
Really, when did he become that powerful?
「Nevertheless, this Kuna is still more powerful than the likes of you. No, I’m not only more powerful. My breasts are bigger, and my waist is more slender than yours too. KUNA IS DEFINITELY MORE BEAUTIFUL THAN YOU!」
The Silver Witch said so while locking her gaze with me.
「W-W-WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?! YOURS ARE JUST OVERSIZED HOLSTEIN MILK!」 [TL : Cough, Cow Size]
Saying so, I touched my breasts.
Certainly, despite being shorter than me, her breasts were bigger. Her waist was more constricted, too.
It was frustrating but I completely lost to her in regards to style.
But, it was not like my breasts were small. Rather, they’re bigger than the average. Hers were just oversized.
In the first place, what in the world was she talking about in the middle of a battle? I didn’t know what she meant, though.
「So Shirone, you’re a needless existence. That’s why this Kuna will make you disappear forever!」
I knew that the Silver Witch was serious from her ballooning magical power.
I don’t know why, but I didn’t feel like losing to her.
The Silver Witch set her scythe ready for an attack and charged at me.
「So what, I WON’T LOSE TO YOU TOO!」
I also set my sword to clash with her scythe.
◆Former Princess of Algore, Regena
「Ah, my dear master has come…」
Something warm wrapped around my chest.
I couldn’t bear to stay in this place.
I recalled the matter about Rietto.
「Even though we used to play together in the past…」
I unintentionally muttered so.
Being the target of Rietto made me sad.
Rietto’s mother was kind to me, too. The one who killed her kind mother was none other than my father.
Thus, it was just natural for Rietto to hate me. The same goes for other people. That was why they didn’t want me to stay in this place any longer.
The only one who didn’t think so was just Omiros.
Even though I feel bad for Omiros, the place I belong to is by my dear master’s side.
That’s why I had to rush to my dear master’s side as soon as possible.
Currently, there was only one other person in this room, the little sister of the hero called Kyouka.
The woman called Shirone left the room when Kuna-sama called her name.
It seems that the woman called Kaya found my dear master, thus she left the room.
I had to do something to leave this room.
The woman called Kyouka doesn’t seem to be that powerful, but I might not be able to defeat her. I have to distract her attention to leave this room.
Suddenly, someone knocked on the door of the room.
「Who might you be? You may enter.」
The door opened. Standing in front of the door was Omiros. Fully armed, maybe because he was preparing himself for a fight against my dear master and the other extras.
「Oh my, Omiros-kun. What’s the matter?」
「Kyouka-sama, may I ask for your permission to take out Regena? 」
What are you going to do, Omiros?
「What are you going to do by taking Regena out? 」
「The Dark Knight has come to Algore. That’s why I’ll send Regena back to the Dark Knight’s place.」
I was shocked by his response.
「Is that so? Well, if you say so, I guess there’s nothing more for me to say.」
Kyouka said so as if noticing something from his voice.
「Before that, I wish to talk to Regena … Just the two of us…」
