“Then, let’s go. [Speed] [Power] [Guard].” (Kei)
As usual, I buff Haru and charge in as the vanguard. However, it doesn’t start immediately attacking us. We are observing it for any attack patterns while watching the opponent. The earth dragon begins to move but we keep our distance from the claws of the earth dragon.
The body of the earth dragon was suited for moving underground, but it is quite slow in moving above ground. It’s a monster, so I was worried if it could move quickly on the ground as well. So this was quite a relief.
Since I confirmed the speed of the enemy, I rushed into the gaps on the earth dragon’s defense while focusing on my speed. It seems dangerous to attack its nose, for the moment. So, I went around to the side, before kicking the ground and quickly moving from that spot. Since I felt something was wrong with the earth dragon that I kept in check using [Perspective].
At that moment, the claws of the earth dragon swung through the spot where I was before, gouging the ground.
“Its attacks are fast. There was almost no precursory action. I almost didn’t dodge it.” (Kei)
Haru, who was waiting behind me, approached.
“I think it attacked after it had accumulated strength. As I understood from my [Perception], its muscles were slowly contracting.” (Kei)
“Wow, what a monster. Hng, [Bomb] and [Sextuple]” (Haru)
Haru readied her shovel with the magic circle on it. Suddenly we noticed that a magic circle suddenly appears at the tip of the Earth Dragon’s nose, which has been quite far from us.
Then seven earthen thorns made by the Earth Dragon’s magic were blown away instead by Haru’s magic.
“It can even fight at a long-distance? It’s well-rounded and troublesome. Moreover, it can simultaneously counter-attack Haru. We’ll be at it for a while, so you should change magic attributes and go for one suited for close range.” (Kei)
“Okay, I will.” (Haru)
Standing in front of Haru, I ready my machete. It seems that the earth dragon has already given up closing the distance, and the magic circle appears again at the tip of its nose.
“There is more magical power being used. [Chain].” (Kei)
Far from having melee combat skills, I don’t have attack skills or attack magic, so my combat ability is lower than that of Haru. That is why I supplement it with a little magic and technique.
I would have to use [Chain] to counter the magic attack flying towards me, a spell far from my normal range.
Earthen stakes pop out near the magic circle. About nine of them. Is the power about the same?
I daringly approached the magic flying towards me and cut off the first stake. It would be nice if all the stakes could be destroyed in the same way, but my speed and skill were insufficient. In addition, my weapons are not suitable for this. That’s why I put my strength into a single blow.
The force exerted on the machete is transmitted the moment the first stake is smashed, cracking the other spines. Then, I slipped through the stakes and swung my machete towards the last stake. Not surprisingly, the slash was contagious and destroyed all the thorns.
“Brother, I’m ready.” (Haru)
“Okay, go and do it!” (Kei)
Kicking the ground with all my might I charged forward. And the moment I enter the range of the earth dragon, I use [Stealth]. It lost sight of me as I continued to approach. If it’s someone not quite used to fighting a certain enemy, they’ll focus their attention on it. And it was the same with the Earth-Dragon.
In an instant, I moved to the side of the Earth Dragon and called out. The Earth Dragon immediately spun to where I am and stretched its claws. For a moment it forgot about the existence of the other person.
“[Fissure] Hiyaaa!” (Haru)
The sound of hard objects colliding with each other echoed. Soon, the Earth Dragon, which was attacked by Haru’s full power from behind, loses its posture and collapses.
I use [Chain] again and hit the machete towards its nose. So, let the attack be multiplied. It all landed in the same place. So, what if all that power got transmitted and gathered in one place? Naturally, it will stack up multiple times.
The sound of hard objects hitting each other echoed again, and the earth dragon screamed for the first time. However.
“This is bad.” (Kei)
“Brother, its status is higher than expected.” (Haru)
We were certainly hitting the enemy’s undefended parts with the maximum firepower we could use. Even so. The sound of collision is the sound of hard objects colliding with each other. The enemy is too hard to crack.
“If this happens, it can’t be helped. Haru, fight seriously.” (Kei)
Throwing the machete I freed my hand.
“My level is 47 and yours is 48. So it’s bout 8 minutes. Can you do it?” (Kei)
“If we can’t do it, we can’t beat this guy.” (Haru)
Haru also threw her shovel away.
“Then, let’s go.” (Kei)
“[Scythe]” “[Morning Star]” (Kei) & (Haru)
Our magic weapons appeared in our hands. The last time we used it is to guard against the loud roar of Rimdobmur, who somehow focused on us. The weapons enhance our skills and magic. At that time, I used [Speed] and [Power].
So, whenever I had the weapon, I felt that I could use more power. An actual battle that doubles as verification of one or eight of my questions. I activated [Stealth] as soon as I was near the dragon’s feet. The skill that hides my presence is strengthened, and even my image is fully obscured.
My silhouette becoming blurry and non-descript through [Stealth], it seemed to have lost sight of me. However, this is also the Earth-Dragon.
I’m paying close attention to its every movement. Until recently, I wouldn’t have been able to make a surprise attack. That’s from before.
I carefully but swiftly moved in front of the Earth Dragon and swung the scythe with all my might.
“Gwaaaaar!” (Earth Dragon)
It roared. The slash seems to have been shallow. However, the depth of the slash doesn’t matter when concerning the eyes. If it’s hit, you will most likely lose your eyesight.
“[Fissure] [Decaple]” (Haru)
Haru’s morning star was swung in front of it, the spell seemed far different from before. Ten fissures in space cut through the Dragon’s face and the Morningstar’s spikes pierce its face and blew it away.
“Gyaaaaa!” (Earth Dragon)
A magic circle spun around the Earth Dragon as it roars and stood up. Magical power crawled underground and moved towards the direction we are standing in.
“Haru, jump.” (Kei)
At the same time as we jumped diagonally forward, multiple earthen stakes sprouted.
“This is the end. [Fissure] [Decaple]” (Haru)
Along with Haru’s chant, a crack in space is created on the Earth Dragon’s face made from 10 fissures neatly overlapping. It’s quite the nasty move to pile on a crack after another. And then,
“[Chain] [Power]” (Kei)
Enchanting again, I quickly approach the blinded Earth-Dragon. Then, I swung my scythe.
“Victory is ours!” (Kei)
The scythe, which I swung out with all my might, pierced the wound made by Haru and destroyed its brain. Instant death.
In a flash, the Earth Dragon turned to mist and disappeared.
“Good work, Brother.” (Haru)
“Good work, too.” (Kei)
I hi-fived Haru before checking the Earth Dragon’s drop item.
There are two cards and a leather bag left behind.
“First of all, the skill cards.” (Kei)
Of course, touching the card turned it into mist as soon as I used it, so the other one was used by Haru.
“Brother, let’s go home for today. It’s time right?” (Haru)
Looking at the pocket watch, it’s 6:00 PM. It’s definitely a good time to go back.
“Then, should we go home? When we go home, analyze this bag.” (Kei)
We left with the mysterious leather bag and the excitement of finding new skills in our hearts. By the way, on the way back, we went to the boss room of the minotaur and defeated it quickly. I also took back the huge iron ax this time.
And after returning to the Kizaki family house. What we discovered was beyond amazing.
“Brother, I haven’t confirmed your skill yet, and this bag is too dangerous. It’s like this.” (Haru)
Haru writes it on paper and gives it to me as usual.
In other words, it’s a bag that can hold up to one ton. It also doesn’t increase in weight like that jar. With this, the results of our hunts were going to soar. However, an unexpected storm is on the horizon.
