The skeleton that had been coming towards me with its sword raised suddenly stopped and began to back away.
The skeleton then runs quickly disappearing into the darkness, its jaws rattling.
“What was that…?”
Just when I was about to take on the difficult challenge of fighting a skeleton with Holy Fire, I was caught off guard in the opposite sense, and for a moment I lost my composure.
As I regained my composure and hurriedly chased after it, the skeleton moved further and further back as if to match me.
“Hmm … this is …”
Could it be that they don’t like the white fireball from Holy Fire?
No, I can’t think of anything else. Nothing else should have changed from earlier.
It’s also possible that the skeleton is actually an innocent and fussy girl who is running away from sweaty men, saying, “I don’t like sweaty men.” …no, let’s not indulge in silly fantasies.
As I was chasing the skeleton, I finally hunted it down at a dead end.
The skeleton, with nowhere to run, turned to face me and stuck to the wall at the end of the path, its bones clattering as if it was trembling.
“You can’t escape now. Just give up.”
I focused my attention on the white fireball in my right hand and reminded myself to fly to the skeleton. It flew more smoothly than before and attached itself to the skeleton’s pelvis. The white ball of fire burned the skeleton’s pelvis, and white smoke rose from the bones around it. The skeleton shuddered and made a rattling sound as it writhed.
“After all that, it’s still not it…?”
It seems that it is continuously damaging, so I don’t feel like I can kill it, but it seems that I am still using magical power to keep the flame alight, so it is not efficient.
Well, I’ve got a general idea of the magical effect, and I wonder if it’s a good idea. Well, I should finish it soon.
I focused my attention on the white fireball and visualized the next image in my mind.
“Is the end… Explosion!”
The moment I said the words, the white fireball exploded lightly with a bang, and white flames spread out in a radius of about a meter. The skeleton at the center of the explosion was enveloped in white flames, its bones shaking as it emitted white smoke.
A few seconds later, the skeleton collapsed on the spot, its bones scattered.
“So that’s it.”
Somehow, I thought it would be easier to visualize, if I said it aloud, and it worked. This way, it seemed easier to do.
I felt like I had grasped something more about magic.
I was so happy about that that I naturally smiled.
“Doesn’t it seem like I’m the bad guy?”
My question disappeared into the darkness of the dungeon.
I regained my composure and reflected on [Holy Fire].
The first thing I thought was. What kind of magic is this [Holy Fire] for? That’s the question. I was using it as if it were an attack spell, but is it really an attack spell?
I was able to defeat the skeleton with this magic, but I don’t think it’s very useful as attack magic. It doesn’t fly unless you consciously try to make it fly, and its speed is also slow. The explosion also needs to be controlled by the user. And even skeletons, which seem to have trouble with these white fireballs, were not severely damaged just by coming into contact with the white fireballs. We were able to defeat it by making it explode here, covering its entire body in flames and burning it.
I think the best way to do this is to create a white flame [Holy Fire] to ignite something. In other words, I think it’s like the spell [Fire Seed] in Life Magic. That’s what I think.
It is said that there are six types of life magic: [Light Source], [Weight Reduction], [Fire Seed], [Water Drop], [Breeze], and [Earth Manipulation]. They are light, dark, fire, water, wind, and earth, respectively, and are said to be the easiest to learn of all spells.
And, among the Sacred Magic I remember, the magic that contains the names of these six attributes is the first [Holy Light], from what I remembered. The next I learned is [Holy Wind]. Then, [Holy Earth], [Holy Fire] from earlier. Based on the pattered, all that remains is Holy Water and Holy Dark… I don’t know if Holy Dark even exists.
If Holy Fire is a kind of fire of life magic, maybe other Holy plus the six attributes of magic is also a kind of Life Magic within Sacred Magic? This is one possibility that comes to mind.
At this point, I can’t say for sure because I haven’t confirmed anything yet.
For the time being, I can’t say anything about this at this point, so I have to wait for some new information to come to me.
The next thing I was wondering was to what extent the effect of Holy Fire, or the effect of monsters running away, would affect everything.
In other words, does it only work on the skeletons that I tested this time? Does it work on all undead? Does it work on all monsters? Or does it only work on monsters with certain characteristics, regardless of their race? There are many possible explanations, and I need to investigate them one by one.
Now that I’ve finished my research on the undead and magic, I think I’ll look into this next.
As I was thinking about this, the bones scattered in front of me disappeared, leaving behind a magic stone and a rusty sword.
—There was a red and black book too.
