Chapter 36 : The Power of Bikini Armors
「So there’s six of them huh. Moreover, they’re “Hob-Goblins”……. What shall we do? 」
Dany and Howard are having such an exchange from behind cover.
According to the plan, their party arrived at the aforementioned historic ruins.
Hobgoblin, a high ranked species of goblins are loitering around the entrance.
They’re as tall as an adult human, and different from goblins, they’re an intelligent species.
「Yosh, I guess it’s our turn right now! 」
「Riight! Leave the surprise attack to us」
Kenny and Marietta volunteered themselves for a surprise attack.
Moreover, as soon as Cedric nodded in agreement….. They’re already dashing toward their targets.
Though not as fast as Aria when she is invoking her 《Acceleration》, they’re fast enough.
Moreover, despite their speed, they make almost no sound. It seems it’s thanks to their bikini armor that makes no colliding sounds while they move. Moreover, the timing of their dash was superb.
They dashed away right at the moment those hobgoblins aren’t looking the party’s hiding place.
Marietta lands a critical blow on the back of the head on one of the hobgoblins with her golden club.
Even after death, that hobgoblin has yet to realize that he was beaten to death.
And then, a similar occurrence was showcased by Kenny.
The swing of her battle axe crushed the crown of the hobgoblin’s head, all the way till the base of it’s neck.
Both sides ended their ambush in one hit.
『GUGYAAAAAAAAAAA! ! 』
After two of their kin were beaten to death in that way, the remaining hobgoblins finally realized that they’re under attack and charged toward Kenny and Marietta.
The hobgoblins specialized weapon is the stone axe. One of those hobgoblin vanguards swung his axe down towards Kenny.
「HAH, TOO SLOW! ORAAA!, SMASH!!! ! 」
Kenny easily dodged that attack. Moreover, she’s delivering a ball crusher kick along with her sidestep.
The hobgoblin is raising a『GAGYAAAAAAA――NN!?』 With an agonizing tone due to the power behind her kick combined with her steel leggings.
「Yup, good―― Job! ! 」
Kenny then swings her battle-axe using that opening to end the hobgoblin’s life. Decapitating the hobgoblin.
「Ha~~I, BALLS CRUSHING STRIKE!! ! 」
Behind her, Marietta unleashes an upward strike.
Her aim is the same as Kenny, the crotch of the hobgoblin.
It’s just that she’s using her club right now.
In short, a ball crushing strike.
The bikini armor duo is too heartless.
The two remaining hobgoblins are retreating.
But, they’re too late. The moment they retreat, fresh blood is spraying out from their chest.
「Good job. Kenny, Marietta」
「Uhm, your ambush is as wonderful as ever」
It’s Dany and Howard.
Dany with his long sword, and Howard with his bare hand――stabbed the hobgoblins from their back.
「Well since there’s only one entrance, our enemy won’t be able to escape. Let’s attack them immediately before they have the chance to prepare themselves for battle」
「「「「ROGER! ! 」」」」
The party replies at the same time after hearing Cedric’s shout.
Aria and co also doesn’t let themselves be left behind and follows them.
… … …
『This is……….. Intruders? From the look of it, they’re knights and adventurers………. Which means, my whereabouts have been exposed. Even though I paid close attention whenever I abducted the people from the city………….』
The deepest part of the historic ruins――
A young man is muttering so with an annoyed voice. Violet colored pupils and brown skin. And then, poisonous-looking green hair……..
He is from the demon race.
The archenemy of humans who live by killing and eating humans.
And this youth who caused the kidnapping disturbance is the target of Aria and co. His purple colored pupils are looking at the crystal ball laying on the ground.
Taking a closer look, the crystal is showing the figure’s of Aria and co advancing toward the deepest part of the historic ruin.
The identity of that crystal is a magic item.
It will allow the user to see the scenery of a place that was designated beforehand by injecting mana into it.
『Damn, even though my plan is advancing smoothly…………. As expected, it might’ve been a mistake to kidnap those humans? But they were necessary to maintain the monsters. That was unavoidable』
The demon race youth placed his hand on his chin while muttering so in a low voice.
『No, it’s too late for regrets. Though I originally planned to increase the number of my mons-…… War potential, it’s no longer possible right now』
The youth come to that conclusion after pondering for a while. And then, he closed his eyes, focusing his mind.
The demon race who are proficient at using mana can control monsters with their will.
In short, he’s currently instigating the monsters in the historic ruins to attack Aria and co.
『First is a test. I’m going to make you regret the fact that you ever tried to foil my plan, humans! 』
