Chapter 42.3 : The Last Moment of Powerful One
But then, a change in our battle occurred.
The Little One’s breath started to become heavy. No matter what kind of skills or defensive movement it has, it’s still an infant after all. There’s a limit to the Little One’s stamina.
『Let’s stop this. You can’t defeat me. Now be a good child and die.』
So I said to him. I’m gonna kill him in an instant. That’s my way to show my respect to the Little One who fought toe-to-toe against me till this point.
Bur, how should I say? The Little One is clearly not abandoning this fight yet. Rather, it made a face as if it’s decided on something.
And the next moment after I thought so.
Flash of brilliant light surges out from the Little One’s body.
When the dazling light subsided, the one standing in it’s place was a Jet-Black―― Lion.
The lion lets out a roar. It’s sheer volume make me tremble. No way, am I, getting scared! ? I felt so.
And then, the lion began to speak.
――OUR NAME IS〝TAMA〟! ! A Behemoth S-rank monster who became the knight of adventurer Aria! AND NOW, I’M GOING TO KILL YOU TO SAVE MY MASTER’S LIFE!! ! ! !
It’s voice has changed. It’s form too. But, I heard it say it’s name. This Jet Black Lion was the Little One who fought me up till now.
The aftermath was a one-sided slaughter. The Little O-………. No, the〝Powerful One〟 fired an incandescent hell fire that roasted my scales.
I felt a crisis that gnawed on my life. Therefore, for the first time in my life, I tried to run from the fight. But――
Before I even have the chance to retreat, the Powerful One charged from inside the hell fire.
And then, right before me is a brilliant red hot gigantic sword of fire that extended from it’s tail, swinging down towards me.
I can’t avoid this! ! I knew that. In that case, I prepared myself for a draw.
I swing my forefeet. But the Powerful One, even while swinging down it’s sword tail, dodges the attack aimed for it’s vitals by doing a half turn. In contrast to that, me………
Along with that sharp sound It broke my head.
I lost. It’s a complete defeat……….
Before my body feels the pain, my heart was already aware of that fact.
And then, I thought. If, Our was to be “Reincarnated”, I want to bear a child of this “Powerful One”………..
Along with such thoughts, Our consciousness descended into the void.
