About two weeks have passed since we completed the Intermediate Potion. I drank the Intermediate Potion once to see if it worked. It tasted like a normal potion, with no distinguishing characteristics. As for the recovery power, I’m not sure.
Fortunately or unfortunately, we hadn’t been injured badly enough to be able to use the full power of the Intermediate Potion. But that didn’t mean we didn’t want to be in pain from the experiment, so we decided that it was okay.
These days, my status is too high to get injured. Now, even if I get hit by a car outside the dungeon, I’ll probably only have minor scrapes and bruises all over my body.
At any rate, even though we made a lot of intermediate potions, we didn’t have anywhere to store them, so we put them in the Potion Bottle we had gotten before, and drank the rest. I felt it would be a shame to throw away something that could potentially be worth over a billion dollars if sold.
That’s it for our Intermediate Potions. Today, we decided to do a final check on our passports as the day when we could get them was getting closer.
And when I say final check, I don’t mean checking our luggage. To begin with, we hadn’t prepared any of our luggage yet.
Final confirmation was the purpose of our going abroad. After some time had passed, I had almost forgotten that our purpose was to find out how to defeat the Rimdobmur. We wanted to see who was the only person in the world who had defeated the Rimdobmur and see how strong he was and how he did it.
In other words, we wondered if we really couldn’t defeat Rimdobmur with our current strength. Because we have already succeeded in bringing Rimdobmur down to the ground. At that point, our abilities are capable of defeating Rimdobmur. But we can’t finish him off. With our status, our magic power runs out at that point, and we can’t get any closer. We may be able to handle close combat, but we are only rearguards.
If our magical power is lost, there is no way we can do it. The breath of Rimdobmur will easily blow our lives away.
“Now, Haru, are you ready?” (Kei)
“Yeah. I brought as much as I could. If we win today, we won’t have to go abroad.” (Haru)
“Most people would want to go abroad even if there’s nothing to do. We don’t even speak a word of English.” (Kei)
“Right. Customs, right? We’ll get stopped at customs.” (Haru)
“And then I’ll be the yes man and I’ll say something stupid and they’ll send me back to Japan.” (Kei)
“Woah, don’t be so scary in real life, brother.” (Haru)
I don’t know if that’s possible because I’ve never actually been to a foreign country, but it makes me worry about it more. We’re just siblings living in a small pond. Well, I heard that nowadays you can use your smartphone to translate, so it may not be a problem, but how good is the translation? I’m very worried.
“Brother, are you listening?” (Haru)
“Hmm? What?” (Kei)
When I was thinking about stuff, Haru’s words didn’t seem to come through.
“I’m ready, let’s go. We’re ready to go. I’ve done some preliminary research on the Rimdobmur overseas.” (Haru)
Haru made a triumphant face as she headed for the basement.
“Oh, really. What did you read?” (Kei)
Haru spun around with a slight smile, pointed her finger at me, and said proudly,
“I couldn’t read English, so the information gathered 0.” (Haru)
“You can use…” (Kei)
As I looked at Haru’s smug face, my true feelings leaked out. No, I thought we had gotten some good information, but I got nothing. It’s good to have lower expectations, but I don’t think it’s good to raise it for no reason. So it’s not bad that I spit out some venomous words.
“You’re the worst.” (Kei)
Haru laughed at my words and jumped down to the dungeon. The fence with the ladder that we had used to get in and out of the dungeon and basement was now just a door.
Now that our status is up, and we have one hand free, we can climb out of the dungeon and into the basement with a simple jump. I can feel our growth even in such a small way.
“Brother, let’s go.” (Haru)
“Yes, yes.” (Kei)
I responded to Haru’s voice from inside the dungeon and quickly jumped down into the dungeon.
“Brother, let’s go!” (Haru)
“Okay, let’s go.” (Kei)
It was as if they were playing baseball. The conversation took place in the middle of a forest full of large trees. Each of the trees is very thick and hard. Only a few of the trees have fallen in disarray, and two people are standing on top of them.
In the girl’s hand is a small round object. The boy’s palms are facing that circle as if he is worshipping it. Well, even if it sounds strange like that, in the end, it’s just a battle preparation.
Last time, I think each of us had been firing the maximum amount of magic from the beginning. Since we couldn’t defeat it, we decided to change things up this time, so Haru is using [Rampage] and I’m using [Domination] to strengthen her [Liquid Magic].
The strategy is the same as last time, push and shove. Since each of us did our best and didn’t have enough firepower, we decided to work together. On top of that, I’ve never seen Rimdobmur avoid the first hit.
Perhaps it’s only after you’ve been harmed that you finally recognize it as dangerous. Perhaps it is only after you have been harmed that you recognize it as dangerous, or even detestable. So why is this? The Rimdobmur, far above us, has been glancing at us viciously for a while now.
Well, that’s it, isn’t it? It’s because we’re using too much magic. The total amount of magic between the two of us is quite a lot, both in quantity and quality.
“Okay, I’m going.” (Haru)
Haru reduces the density of the sphere of [Liquid Magic] and makes it a little larger. I’m going to use my Domination to embed my magic into it. First of all, I am using [Intangible Armor] through my treasure, and enchanted multiple [Impact], [Bomb], [Fissure], and [Collapse].
When the color of liquid magic power became chaotic, we moved on to the next stage. Packed it with magic from my debuff system; the power of [Liquid Magic] is compressed by two people. The amount of magic in it doesn’t change much, but compressing it requires many times more power than at first.
The amount of magic and other data in the liquid magic must be too much. In simple terms, I should say that it has become stronger because of the increased quality.
Using my Domination, Haru’s Magic Manipulation, and the natural manipulability of the Treasure Tools, we managed to compress it to the same size as the first and covered it with Intangible Armor again. The armor was then covered again with layers and layers of armor. However, it should burst upon impact. The image is that of a Dutch Tear. The image I created was that of a burst of energy caused by a scratch in one place. The image of magic is quite important. [T/N: Dutch Tears or Prince Rupert’s Drop are glass beads that are tear/tadpole-shaped with tough beads and brittle tails that cause quite the explosion once the tail is broken. Google-sensei has videos on how powerful the explosions are.]
“It’s completed.” (Kei)
“Yes, I’m tired. I feel like I’m going to be unable to throw it at Rimdobmur.” (Haru)
We finished making a bomb filled with a lot of magic. We sat down on a fallen tree with it floating in the air. A short break. I drink some tea from my canteen to moisten my throat. Then I buff myself and Haru to enhance our performance. I put on my [Intangible Armor] and prepare to use my scythe Treasure Tool at any time.
“Brother, I’m going!” (Haru)
“Oh, three, two, one.” (Kei)
“Take this!” (Haru)
The magic bomb that Haru threw was probably due to her Magic Manipulation. I will speed up and approach Rimdobmur. The direction gradually changes on the way, and I adjusted it so that it hits.
Surprisingly there was no sound.
As the bomb exploded, the sky around Rimdobmur was dyed black and no smoke was rising. A completely silent bomb. Even the wind stops as if the sound had disappeared from the world. And,
Then, a loud scream. For some reason, the voice that shook the forest didn’t seem to be filled with energy.
Gradually, the blackness of the sky disappears, and along with it, shiny things and a red liquid that looks like an upturned bucket fall from the sky.
Finally, a large mass fell.
I looked up at the sky and saw a reddish-black Rimdobmur with its body gouged out and one leg missing, flying through the air, spewing red liquid. The huge body was slowly and unsteadily fleeing.
“Do you plan on escaping?” (Kei)
Immediately, I picked up my Treasure Scythe and threw it at Rimdobmur with all my might. Even with this, the strength of my status is high, and the Scythe is in a state of enhancing Strength through magic, so the Scythe rushes straight to Rimdobmur.
With a loud cry, it was repelled by its tattered tail.
I jumped on reflex, the blade of my scythe pierced deeply into the place where I was.
“Brother, are you okay?” (Haru)
Haru came up to me as if in a panic, but fortunately, nothing happened.
“I avoided it just barely. Rather, does Haru still have magical power?” (Kei)
“No, I don’t. Do you have any?” (Haru)
“No, see you again.” (Kei)
“See you again.” (Haru)
This is the second time we’ve failed to kill Rimdobmur.
“Well, this reaffirms why we go abroad.” (Kei)
“Yeah. How to defeat the Rimdobmur. Among other things.” (Haru)
“We need to make sure we’ve got the right firepower and prevent the Rimdobmur from escaping.” (Kei)
“Okay brother.” (Haru)
Haru looks tired, but she had a big smile on her face.
“Why don’t we check the part of Rimdobmur that didn’t disappear?” (Kei)
At the end of Haru’s line of sight is a large object dropped by Rimdobmur.
A single leg stained with blood had fallen.
