Chapter 144.3 : Nidol Proxia
「Fuhahaha, at this rate my defeat is just a matter of time huh? Great, GREAT! TRULY WONDERFUL! MY BLOOD AND BODY ARE SEETHING WITH EXCITEMENT FOR BATTLE! SO THIS IS THE FEELING OF FACING YOUR OWN DEMISE HUH? I SEE, I REMEMBER IT NOW!」
Nidol found himself in a pinch and yet, he let out an innocent laugh with a loud voice. It was as if he was truly enjoying this battle from the bottom of his heart.
It might have been due to him being unable to measure the true nature of the man called Nidol that Rio started attacking again while maintaining his vigilance.
「What’s the matter? Wasn’t that the best chance to kill me? Come and take my neck at once. You’ll only regret waiting for me to weaken…………… Ah, too late.」
Nidol urged Rio to kill him immediately, but, soon after, his face suddenly turned gloomy. Black colored magic power exploded like a blazing flame from Nidol’s body and the heavy sword in his hand.
Rio retreated by reflex but ――
「Unfortunately, your time is up. I…………………. Can’t suppress it anymore. Run as far as you can right now!」
Nidol heaved a sigh after saying so. The torrent of sinister black magic power gathered toward the heavy sword in Nidol’s hand.
（That magic power is bad news）
Rio could feel chills running down his spine and started kneading even more solid magic power inside his body.
Nidol looked at that scene in awe while his lips curved like those of a war beast. Even during that time, the torrent of violent black magic power kept gathering into the heavy sword in his hand――、
「Well then, IT’S GAME ON!」
Nidol set his stance and swung his heavy sword down lightly. At that moment, unending torrents of black flames roared towards Rio. The ground of the arena was also covered in jet-black darkness.
But, maybe because Rio had kneaded vast amounts of magic power which wouldn’t lose to Nidol’s, he held his hand aloof towards the incoming torrents of black flames. Brilliant white light exploded from Rio’s hand the next moment.
The torrent of white light collided with the black flames and pushed its way through the black flames while releasing diamond dust-like particles of light. Following the blinding white light was a violent storm that brought along freezing arctic winds inside the arena.
The black flames fired by Nidol were frozen in place as if being gnawed by the storm. Using that momentary distraction, Rio had already moved behind Nidol――、
「………… Uhm, though it ended far too early, I wonder when I’ll be able to ever feel such feelings that make my blood boil again. It was a fair fight, I enjoyed it. I never go back on my promises, now take your reward. What do you want, is it my life? 」
Nidol who got a dagger pushed against his neck said so with an emotionless voice.
「………. I have no interest in your life. I only want information.」
Rio paused for a moment and then told Nidol his demands. His reason for attacking Nidol wasn’t to kill him since he only wanted information.
