Chapter 56.2 : The Dragon Girl’s Rampage
And just like that, she vanished into the darkness of the labyrinth.
Tama, who had expected it to happen, cursed internally.
(Stupid Stella, now you’ve done it!）
By giving a short cry, he invoked a spell. All three party members were enveloped by a golden aura.
[TL: Blessing of Super Saiyan Cat 1]
Tama had invoked his 《Divine Protection of Lion King》.
『BUHIHIHIHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII! ! 』
The remaining Orcs immediately focused their attention on Aria and Vulcan, staring at them with lustful expressions.
They believed they would be able to rape Aria and co as much as they wanted now that the monster-like girl was gone.
「Can’t be helped nya~, I guess it’s up to us to clean up this place right now! 」
「Yes Vulcan-san! Please cover our backs, Tama! 」
「Nyaaa~! (Leave it to me, master!) 」
In a normal situation, Aria and co would have some difficulties fighting against four Orcs at once.
With the 《Divine Protection of Lion King》, the battle became much easier.
Even without it, they would’ve won. That’s the testament of their confidence in their own skills.
Tama would use his 《Elemental Howl》 only when necessary but this situation was also part of the training. That wasn’t changing even with Stella’s unexpected blunder.
Rather, they could aim even higher with this kind of situation.
Neither Aria nor Vulcan liked easy victories. Thus, they signaled Tama to support them from the back.
「HERE I GO NYAAAAAA!! 」
Vulcan released a war cry as she charged toward the Orcs, taking a wide-open stance with her battle hammer.
Unlike before, she wielded her battle hammer as if it was weightless.
It wasn’t that surprising since she was blessed with 《Divine Protection of Lion King》 and it included a great increase in physical prowess.
Vulcan swung her battle hammer at a breakneck speed.
The Orcs were taken by surprise and couldn’t keep up with the attack. The battle hammer hit the Orc’s head with a loud noise, crushing it.
『BUGYAAAAAAA――! ? 』
Meanwhile, another scream resounded from farther ahead.
Aria stood in front of an Orc in a stabbing stance. Her leg strength had been boosted by 《Divine Protection of Lion King》 and 《Acceleration》, giving her god-like speed.
She stood behind Vulcan just a while ago, but she had already moved and was right in front of the Orc in an instant, stabbing her knife into its eyes.
Her knife reached all the way into its brain. The second it was dead, Aria retreated.
The Orc collapsed like a sack of potatoes, face up.
The last Orc moved toward her as it swung its stone axe.
As it swung, it hit only air and lost its balance. Vulcan did not miss the opportunity and drove her battle hammer into the Orc’s armpit.
Judging by the sound, the strike might have broken several of the Orc’s ribs.
As soon as the attack connected Vulcan called Aria, who leaped from her crouching stance as soon as her partner shouted her name.
Aria was fast.
The distance between her and the enemy became zero in just a moment.
Crossing the knives in both her hands, she decapitated the Orc’s head as if she was cutting butter.
That action was only possible due to the tamahagane and orichalcum combo present in both her knives.
「Geez, WAIT UP STELLA-CHAN, YOU CAN’T JUST LEAVE US BEHIND YOU KNOW! 」
After taking care of the last Orc, Aria shouted toward the end of the cave.
Stella was already returning, though.
By the blood splatters over her body, the Orc that ran did not manage to escape her.
「Why? Why should I abandon my prey? 」
Stella questioned Aria with a puzzled expression.
For her, monster subjugation was equivalent to a hunt.
In her eyes, Vulcan and Aria were first-rate warriors. She saw no danger in leaving them behind.
「This time was fine because the monster was weak. But we’re going to be in deep shit if you do this while we’re facing more powerful monsters, Nyao~w! So please stop running rec―― Where are you going nyaow!? 」
Vulcan was about to explain the importance of teamwork to Stella for the second time when she noticed her target was gone.
As she looked around, she found Stella already walking toward a new incoming Orc.
Tama, on the other hand, racked his brain for a solution.
(Ha~h… I guess I need to control that tomboy girl…）
