The face of the supervisor with a sadistic smile on her face at the end passes through my mind.
“So, this is the presentation?”
“Yes, not just a vague explanation of information, but I’d like to give them some hands-on experience, like a work experience in some way.” (Evia)
As I was hurriedly preparing for the interview later that day, I realized that even if the person had an aptitude for magic, he or she would not be able to do the job.
Even if he had an aptitude for magic, could a student who didn’t know the first thing about combat really follow this job?
At first, they might be curious, but if they are not good at sports, or if they have an aversion to this kind of violence, it will be hard for us to teach them, and if they quit too soon, the time we spent teaching them will be wasted.
“Hmm, do you want to sift through them?”
“Yes, even if they don’t actually experience it, if we show them actual battles, they will be able to match their imagination with reality and measure other aptitudes other than magical power.” (Evia)
“I’m not sure if it’s appropriate to actually fight demons with the soul summoning I did during my training period.? They will fight with me, and I will let Kaido test it out first.” (Evia)
It’s surprisingly normal, not knowing the difference between an ideal and reality?
Even if you’ve mistaken yourself for being strong or you can shoot just magic endlessly just because it’s some kind of fantasy, it’s going to lead to something troublesome later.
Work is a process of repeated compromise and occasionally mixing in your own ideals.
It is necessary to have a certain degree of shift in perspective.
“…Okay, but it takes time to prepare. I can’t reschedule it, so I’ll prepare a substitute. We’ve got a good test subject, Suela, catch the man who’s about to escape.” (Evia)
Perhaps, since I had completed taking in loss and gains account with just a few moments of thought, I then found a profitable path and proposed it, and she cut off other retreats.
“!? …… Suela-san, if possible, please let go of my hand.”
“Sorry, please forgive me for being helpless.” (Suela)
Contrary to the slender and feminine soft hands, I had no time to admire the magical control of a Dark Elf who firmly trapped my body, and the conversation with the supervisor proceeded.
“What should we be expecting?”
*End of Flashback*
In the end, it was decided that this presentation would go ahead under supervision.
But I didn’t expect them to prepare so much.
I had heard the outline from Suela, but where was the tiled floor that had been so flat and easy to run on?
I could feel the sand stomping against my feet, and if I didn’t hold on tight, my feet would slip.
I was fighting without stopping while I was remembering the past.
I leaped around the rocks, causing a ruckus, and attracting the enemies with [Intimidating Monkey Scream].
Basically, we have reduced the number by attacking first and preemptively, but the opponent is not just about to be killed.
Kicking up the small dragon that jumps from behind, I skewer it in place mid-leap in the air, swinging out of the Mineral Tree I threw it against the group as I pulled the sword back.
It took me a good ten minutes to get around, always keeping Kaido at the edge of my vision and wielding the Mineral Tree.
It’s so light, it’s like a lie that I had a hard time last time, and I’m able to overwhelm the enemies with quite the difference from when I was fighting with just a wooden sword.
It was originally set at a level where Kaido could just barely fight.
I don’t know if that includes my strength or not, but for now, there is no problem.
It’s only a matter of time.
“Kaido are you still alive!?”
“I-I’m still alive somehow.” (Kaido)
“We’re about to see more species soon!”
Once the stamina is exhausted, the Demon King Army’s main territory and the multipurpose tactics of using other species will start and they will try to overrun us.
“Don’t you know what kind will appear!? Senpai!” (Kaido)
“The Supervisor didn’t tell me!!”
“Is that beautiful woman!? Then it can’t be helped!” (Kaido)
“You are such a—-aaargh!!”
Whether it’s a devil or something else, he’s an innocent junior who really likes beautiful women.
“—!? Senpai!” (Kaido)
“Wow, we won’t be able to escape.”
And it seems that the warm-up time is over after playing with the lizard-like dragons.
Now, a group of small demons riding on wolves is heading straight toward us.
I wanted some time to slow down my breathing if possible, but I don’t have that luxury.
“The cavalry has archers, the beast mount is a wolf-type.
You can try running, but they will just track us through our scent, they can shoot at us from a distance. I’m quite up with the structure that leaves the vanguard to the small Lesser Dragons.
“What are those?” (Kaido)
“A child-like monster, a Goblin Rider. Be prepared to use magic, you can’t just save it and expect to win.”
It seems that they have configured their forces to include my strengths.
“So this is where the real action begins?”
I’m in an uncharted territory from here, and with Kaido, my commanding ability will be tested.
It’s good this can be rewarding.
I welcome that kind of work.
I’ll go as far as I can.
“We’re going, Kaido, we are going to win!”
“Let’s do it in moderation!” (Kaido)
I want to try to see how far I can go.
Breakthrough the siege and charge in front of the cavalry prying through the gaps between the Lesser Dragons.
“Let’s kill their momentum immediately!”
“This is the first in Japan! [Fire Arrow]!” (Kaido)
Five arrows made of fire fly out from behind me, and I jump up to meet them.
While the dust clouds flutter to the spots the arrows landed, the cavalry leading the assault suddenly halted in are killed after meeting a huge sword swung down before swinging upwards.
“Slash them! Don’t let them use their bows!”
“Hiyah!! I’ll shoot them down!” (Kaido)
It was a good feeling to experience my first cooperative battle, as we connected in the middle of the battle.
I laughed at the fact that we were brought together charging in the middle of a turbulent battle.
“I don’t feel like losing at all!”
