Chapter 42.2 : The Last Moment of Powerful One
Raising a mewl, the little monster―― Let’s just call it “Weak One”―― Tried to dodge my attack.
But, despite my huge size, my body is quite nimble. This weak one won’t make it in time to dodge my claw. Then, the weak one raised another mewl.
In the next moment, it’s body turned a metallic grey color. And then――
Such a sound resounded. From the sound, and the recoil that I felt in my claws, I knew that the weak one turned it’s body into metal with some sort of skill.
But, it still failed to completely protect itself. My claw carved a deep mark on the weak one’s body.
『Gufufufu……… I praise thee for surviving my claw attack.』
I gave my praise. Because it survived my attack despite still in it’s infant state.
But, this is the end. Opening my mouth, I bring my head closer to the Weak One. It looks delicious after all. Thus I wanted to eat it.
But―― That’s where I made a huge mistake.
『GUAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA――――AAAAAA! ! ? ? 』
My scream reverberated around. A sensation that I had never felt before rushing to attack one of my eyes. And then, that was the moment when I realized that this is what “Pain” felt like.
When I looked with the other eye that was still fine, I knew what had happened when I saw the flow of mana. The origin of my pain was the transparent mana that extended from the tip of the Weak One’s tail.
Blood is trickling down from my wounded eye.
That’s how I was injured by this Weak One…….
In that realization, my wrath shot through the roof.
I HAVE TO KILL IT BY ALL MEANS! The moment I prepared myself to go all out.
Along with that sound, a pair of wings sprouted from the Weak One’s back. And then, it flew―― Toward the cracked ceiling.
TRYING TO RUN AWAY!
Despite being tormented by pain, I swung my claws toward it.
But―― My attack hit nothing but air.
My aim was thrown off when I lost one of my eyes.
『DAMN IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIT! ! ! ! 』
My voice echoed in the surroundings. I have no wings. Thus I cannot chase after the Weak One.
That time, I made an oath. If I meet that guy again, I’m gonna kill it for sure――
And then, that opportunity came faster than I expected.
A while later, along with the flapping sound of it’s wings, the Weak One appeared again before my eyes.
『What do you want, O weak one. Why do you come back to this place despite managing to escape from this great one? 』
「NYA~AN! ! 」
When the Weak One mewled in that way to answer my question, it fired a breath accompanied by blazing flame toward me.
『GUHAHAHAHAHA! ! Interesting! Let’s have a rematch then! I’m gonna make you pay for what you did to my eye! ! 』
I’m laughing in delight. My revenge match with the guy who blinded one of my eyes―― I don’t care about it’s reason for appearing before me for the second time as long as I can get my revenge.
Our fight intensified to the point that I think there’s no end to this. My body is covered with numerous light wounds, while on the other hand the body of the Weak O――No, let’s change it’s name to “Little One” ―― is completely fine.
The Little one has numerous skills, moreover it keeps dodging my attacks with it’s superior mobility, or else parrying them.
It seems that it can see that I have a hard time moving with just one eye. Such a wonderful guy. There’s no way I can call it “Weak One”.
Such a blissful moment! This is the first time since I was born that I experienced such a heated battle.
I must be born to fight this Little One. I felt so.
