An explosion could be heard in the distance.
Again, of Alraune’s [Flower Chant] exploded on the giant.
The Giant paused its advance for a moment, but that was all.
The chains extending from its body were connected to the earth and instantly healed the damaged parts, and it resumed its march as if nothing had happened.
—No! I realize that even if I completely blew out its head or heart, it would regenerate immediately!
—It’s no good here either! I can’t digest this chain at all!
—Ngiii…! No! This chain won’t budge!
—Aim at its feet! Delay its invasion even a little!
A voice could be heard from beneath the giant’s feet.
Immediately after that, a tremendous explosion rang out, and the giant’s body collapsed.
It was like a scene out of a story.
That’s when it happened.
I saw several shadows running up the path.
“Senri-sama! What is that !? Is it an enemy!?” (Inanaki Monster)
“Narugoa-san! Is there an accident !? It looks like Al-san is the one fighting over there…!” (Tiny)
“Waaa, we were in the middle of a live concert, what is that…!? I am seeing something scary…!?” (Diva)
The Inanaki Sacred Mountain (employee) monsters, Goblins, Diva, and her harpies were there.
Apparently, they were watching the battle from the foot of the mountain and rushed hurriedly.
I could see that they were terribly anxious.
At times like this, I resolutely say it.
“Sorry, everyone! An accident has occurred! An angel is attacking! She’s somehow trying to destroy the dungeon itself!”
“That’s an angel!?” (Monsters)
Hearing the word “angel”, terror and panic spread across the monsters.
“Wh-wh-why is there an angel…!?” (Monster)
“ I’ll tell you the details later! I’ll tell you more later! Alraune and the others are holding them back for now, but it’s only a matter of time!”
“What’s going on with those big boobs!?” (Monster)
“Think about it later!”
They finally reached a point of confusion.
In the midst of this, the employee monsters of the Inanaki Sacred Mountain crowded Senri, as if they had remembered her existence.
“Senri-sama! What do we do!?” (Inanaki Monster)
“You can do something about it, right? Please answer me!” (Inanaki Monster)
“Uh, uh…! That’s…” (Senri)
Senri was so out of it that I could see it from the side.
Her face is forlorn and teary and she shrunk into a ball like a child.
It’s like saying “I have no idea.” Then, in an instant, the complaints and harsh words are thrown towards her.
“Oh no…” (Inanaki Monster)
“We trusted you…!” (Inanaki Monster)
A cacophony of disappointed voices rises among them.
Everyone, including the Four Heavenly Kings, turned their uneasy eyes toward Senri.
Receiving the gazes of her subordinates, Senri shouts now unable to bear the pressure.
“Hmm… it can’t be helped!? Because the enemy is an immortal monster!? We can’t win! Impossible! There’s nothing I can do about it!” (Senri)
“Senri-sama…?” (Inanaki Monster)
“I can’t do it! I can’t do it!” (Senri)
“… Senri-sama.” (Inanaki Monster)
“What? I tried so hard too! To this day, I’ve sealed that immortal angel away and raised the Inanaki Sacred Mountain! Until the day I can defeat that angel! But… it was Impossible! I can’t beat an immortal!” (Senri)
“Senri-sama…” (Inanaki Monster)
“Don’t look at me like that! I worked hard, I worked really hard, I worked my hardest! I didn’t know what to do! I did my best as a Middle Boss (Manager)! Moreover, your trust is annoy—” (Senri)
“—Well, did you really do your best?”
Senri looks back at me.
At that moment, I hit Senri with one of my [Thousand Hands].
There was no mercy, I gave all my strength.
“Senri-sama!?” (Inanaki Monster)
Senri was blown away.
And her back slammed against one of the big trees before collapsing.
“Na-Narugoa-senpai… why…” (Senry)
“You really worked hard, right? You’ve done your best, right?”
Narugoa walks up to Senri with his four [Thousand Hands] deployed around him.
His eyes, glaring at her is cold as ice.
And he says,
“—Then I’ll kill you myself, and you’ll die a graceful death in the most boring sense of accomplishment, you disgraced Middle Boss.”
“You must be kidding…” (Senri)
“Does it look like I’m joking?”
Senri shook her head.
She finally realized it.
What dwells in his eyes is pure unadulterated killing intent.
This is not a joke, and the boy in front of her is definitely trying to kill her.
“Sa-save me…” (Senri)
Before she could even begin her pathetic plea, Narugoa swung his [Thousand Hands] over her head.
Senri let out an inaudible scream as she realized she was going to die.
Senri, trembling like a puppy, was covered by a group of people standing stubbornly in front of her.
“–I won’t let you touch even one finger of our Lord.” (Momiji)
Momiji, Nekomata, Yukime, and Sakura.
The executives of Inanaki Sacred Mountain surrounded Senri to protect her.
“Oh, you guys…!?” (Senri)
Senri glances at them.
“No, stop! You may not know, but you are no match for his [Thousand Hands]…!” (Senri)
“—Behold our bonds.” (Momiji)
Momiji cuts off Senri’s words with a dignified voice as sharp and powerful as the sharpest katana.
I snorted and held out my [Thousand Hands] again.
“It doesn’t matter how many of you become her shields, I’ll just hit you all together, get out of the way.”
“We’re not retreating.” (Momiji)
“Don’t you understand that this is completely pointless?”
“There is a point.” (Momiji)
Momiji replied clearly.
“–Senri-dono is the boss of our Inanaki Sacred Mountain, she is, and it would be unreasonable for you to expect her without defeating us first.” (Momiji)
Before long, everyone was listening to her words.
The sound of explosions and the shaking of the earth seemed to have been quiet coming from far away.
“Senri-sama… you are ignorant and underqualified as the Middle Boss and you aren’t a reliable one-nyaa, but still…” (Nekomata)
“But still Senri-sama… She did her best…” (Yukime)
“I’m sorry, this might look bad Narugoa-san, but I’ll stand on this side…. I can’t leave such a pitiful person alone.” (Sakura)
“Therefore, if you want to defeat our Mid-Boss, the Inanaki Sacred Mountain will become your opponent.” (Momiji)
That was the signal.
The Inanaki Sacred Mountain (employee) monsters, who had only been standing around, rushed in agreement and surrounded the four girls.
The whole of the Inanaki Sacred Mountain was standing in front of me.
The only person who could not believe this situation more than anyone else was none other than Senri.
“Why would you…!? I-I am…!” (Senri)
Tattered, large drops spill from Senri’s eyes.
She spun words while screaming like a child.
“I’m… I’m not the mid-boss you needed me to be! I didn’t even know that you guys couldn’t use [Heal] or [Awaken]!” (Senri)
“…You know now-nyaa.” (Nekomata)
“I didn’t even know the Labor Standard until the child over there told me!?” (Senri)
“Later, let us study… together…” (Yukime)
“And now we’ve got a whistleblower! Of course, we would! No wonder people want to quit with such a sloppy dungeon management!” (Senri)
“Don’t worry, I’ll point it out to you next time.” (Sakura)
“Why… why!? Why do this for me…!” (Senri)
“—Senri-dono is our Middle Boss, no one else.” (Momiji)
That was the deciding factor.
Senri tightens her lips unable to say a single word.
In front of her pitiful state, I sigh and withdraw my [Thousand Hands].
“…What is it, you’re doing surprisingly well as a Middle Boss?”
She then begins to cry loudly, as if a switch has been flipped.
She cried loudly, crying like a small child.
—Thus, the long campaign of capturing the Inanaki Sacred Mountain has come to an end.
