Chapter 25 : The Power of Tiger-Eared Girl
Along with that resounding heavy sound.
A goblin is thrown back.
The one standing at that place is a girl――
She’s wearing an overall on her wheat colored skin.
Her pair of tiger ears have the same golden color as her hair.
……. It’s Vulcan.
But, there’s something different from her usual self.
A rustic pair of gauntlets enclose her hands.
Her legs are also wrapped in leggings that have a similar design.
And then, gripped tightly in her hand is Vulcan’s exclusive weapon which is almost as tall as the owner―― “Battle Hammer”.
……. Yes. The goblins are blown away with one hit from Vulcan’s battle hammer.
“HOW DARE YOU!”
An angered goblin then rushes at Vulcan with a short sword in his hand.
Goblins are idiots.
They charge forward without care if they see people.
In comparison, their opponent is just too…….
「These goblin are uselessnya~a! ! 」
They’re a troublesome opponent.
It’s hard to believe that the dainty frame of Vulcan can easily raise her battle hammer and swing it down toward the incoming goblin.
The goblin, receiving the battle hammer on the crown of his head instantly became meat paste.
Bloody gore is scattering around but, such scenery is an everyday occurrence for adventurers.
「Amazing. You’re so amazing, Vulcan-san! As expected of the tiger eared race! 」
BWIII! Thus, Vulcan is sweeping away the blood on her battle hammer.
Aria is cheering from behind her.
Following Aria is Tama who is walking slowly.
The time is in the morning.
The upper layer of the labyrinth.
They came together to do a quest as promised.
「What should I say-nya~a, I do this before breakfastnya~! 」
After hearing Aria’s praise.
Vulcan is replying so while tapping the battle hammer on her shoulder.
In fact, Vulcan doesn’t seems to be short of breath nor is there any trace of fatigue on her face.
Her lively attitude made it even harder to believe that she had just swung around a heavy battle hammer.
（Huhm, though I knew that miss Vulcan is from the tiger eared race, I never expected her to be this powerful）
Tama is also amazed after seeing Vulcan’s power.
The secret of Vulcan’s super strength―― That lies in her being from the “Tiger eared Race”.
Just as stated before, tiger eared race is a therianthrope.
The blood of a wild tiger is flowing in their veins and different from humans, they have a dainty appearance.
If they feel like it, they can fight a medium sized monster from the labyrinth by themselves.
And for that reason Vulcan can bring back many materials from the labyrinth by herself.
In reality, Vulcan is already burdened by a large backpack.
The content of today quest is to defeat a minotaur–Just like the one defeated(and made into a snack) by Tama a while ago– and bring them back,
As for it’s rank, it’s C+ Rank………
Though it’s still too early for Aria and Tama is being impatient, it’ll be fine as long as they’re with Vulcan, and there are no other problems since they also got the letter of approval from Arnold, the receptionist lad(y)
「Well then, let’s go to the next one once we gather the goblin ears! 」
As long as there’s the backpack and Vulcan, there’s no problem even if they have to bring back the whole body of the goblins.
The minotaurs they’re looking for is in the 5th layer.
Walking to there with such heavy luggage is simply a foolish errand.
Moreover, bringing back the minotaur corpse and ores for blacksmithing will be even harder.
Labyrinth, 2nd layer――
Coming along with such vulgar voice.
Was another troupe of goblins.
Four in total…….. Though that number is not that much of a problem for Aria herself, the labyrinth isn’t such a sweet place.
『GUGYAAA! 《FIREBALL》！ 』
One of those goblins cast 《Fire Ball》.
Yes, one of them was a goblin mage which had almost killed Aria before.
The fireball is approaching.
But Tama and Aria aren’t moving from their position.
Because for some reason, their line of sight is locked on Vulcan.
Seeing is faster than explaining.
Because it was their intention to observe Vulcan’s fighting style when she fought by herself.
「What was that nyan! 」
Vulcan is swinging her battle hammer to the side as she is saying so.
When the battle hammer and the 《Fire Ball》 collided.
DOGOOOON! ! It created a small-scale explosion.
「NOW IT’S MY TURN! ! 」
Vulcan leaps from inside the smoke caused by the explosion.
Due to such a sudden occurrence.
The goblins can only stare dumbfoundedly at her.
But, when she’s wondering what’s just happened.
The battle hammer is no longer in Vulcan hands.
「《Enchant Flame》! ! 」
As the goblin feels relieved, Vulcan already dashing forward while chanting an aria.
Thus, flame appeared enshrouding her gauntlets.
Her fist is coming along with the sound of burning atmosphere.
When her fist connected with the stomach of the goblin mage, it instantly set ablaze along with “SWOOSH” sound. ! The sound of the goblin mage burning to a crisp could be heard.
『GAKYAAAAAAAA――――！ ! ? ? 』
The goblin mage whose stomach is being roasted falls to the floor.
Approaching the head of that goblin mage.
Vulcan sent a heel drop and crushed the skull of that goblin.
There is still some enemies left.
She then plunges towards the rest of the goblins.
Breaking through their formation, her fist is aiming for their flank.
Her flame wrapped hands―― are like a sword, going through the goblin flanks and bisecting their bodies from there.
There’s no way those goblins can survive such an attack.
They fall one by one while vomiting blood from their mouths.
The fate of the rest of the goblins…….. Doesn’t even need to be said right?
