Chapter 48: Raid (1)
"Oyado, hide! Avoid battling!" "I know, big brother~"
After replying, Oyado leaped into the back and hid into one of the carriages. I had wanted to add that even if she wish to eliminate her enemies, she can go ahead and do so, as long as she do not get discovered, but I believe Oyado definitely know of this point as well.
Seeing the people appearing out of the bushes, the corner of my lips curved. "It's time to battle!"
Although I only said this now, the battle had actually begun awhile ago. Countless
spells were being shot out from both sides, and at the same time, large magical arrays appeared in the skies above both parties.
They have magicians on their side as well? Looks like they're not your typical thieves.
I laughed, and then with an Accelerate buff, I charged right towards a LV 17 Swordsman. Before he could even recover from his flinch, I stabbed my sword right into his abdomen, and at the same time, I pointed a Exploding Flame spell at his chest. He was instantly sent flying backwards, with his body covered in flames!
In times like this, I did not dare to use my Ice Magic. After all, among the two people that were left tied up in the basement, one of them saw me use an Ice Magic spell. Hence, I can only rely on Fire Magic for now.
My opponent did not expect that I could actually use magic as well. He crawled up from the ground, turned and hurriedly fled as he held onto his wound.
You're running away? Just like that?
And when the rest of his companions saw what happened earlier, evidently, they decided to advance while taking a detour around me. They're actually thinking this highly of me?
"Pretty formidable, huh~ You're actually able to use magic as well?"
Lois, who was fighting near me, suddenly said.
I turned to look, and currently, she was actually being surrounded by five people. They might have thought that a little girl like her was an easy target.
Naive! Too naive! Believe it or not, she's actually a LV 25 Broadsword Wielder and a yuri sis-con! You guys are too naive!
Can't you guys see that you're being mocked by that magically engraved broadsword strapped behind her? Of course, you guys can't see it.
Lois pulled out her broadsword in an instant, and slammed it fiercely towards the earth. A white ripple was emitted from the center of the blade, causing the surrounding enemies to lose their balance.
Immediately after, she took a heavy step forward. With a single horizontal slash of her broadsword, the surrounding five enemies were instantly sent flying. Their armor were split in half, and fresh blood were flowing out from their wounds. Even their HP dropped by a half from that single attack.
What frightening attack power. Such a strong effect was produced even when she was attacking so many enemies at the same time. She's really not to be underestimated.
But, unlike me, when her opponents got up from the ground and tried to flee, she immediately flung her right hand, and two flying daggers directly pierced into two of their throats. Then, she accelerated towards one of the remaining three and slashed his waist, cutting him into two pieces. After that, she snatched the long sword he was wielding and threw it, accurately piercing into the fourth person's waist. At the same time, she charged towards the side of the last person, and with a single diagonal slash towards his shoulder, he was cut into half!
This is really too bloody and violent. Even though she's only a 14-year-old loli... The lolis these days are really frightening.
Looks like there are no longer any problems on this side. When I turned to look at Dale, that bastard looked as if he was playing a game.
Streaks of lightning were being produced from the magic stone embedded on his gloves, continuously striking down the enemies that were trying to approach him.
The instant they were struck by the lightning, their bodies were paralyzed and were unable to move.
While Dale only had to wield his dagger and deal the finishing blow onto every single one of them. It was basically a massacre!
And then there's Uncle Gabriel... I lost sight of him for a second, and he was no longer anywhere to be seen. Oh well, a guy like him can't be wounded by enemies like these.
With such difference in battle strength, naturally, the battle was near its end. In just a couple of minutes, most of the surrounding enemies had already been eliminated.
They actually dared to challenge us with just this amount of ability? What a joke, there isn't even a single enemy worth fighting!
Just when I had that thought, I heard a scream. The moment I turned my head, I saw Dale flying towards me.
I hurriedly stretched my hands out to catch him. Then I realized fresh blood was flowing out of his waist, evidently, he was struck by a sword!
I quickly poured a recovery potion down his throat, and his wound slowly stopped bleeding.
I then turned to look towards the direction he flew from. At the place where Dale was positioned earlier, stood a black-masked man with a black cloak, and he was wielding two swords.
Male | 24 Years Old
LV 37 Dual-Swordsman | LV ?? ???
[Evil] [Free] [Fugitive] [???] [???] [???] [???]
Oh, my beloved question marks~ Looks like they do have someone really strong on their side.
"Fall back! I will handle this!"
Lois suddenly charged forward, and with lightning speed, her broadsword swung horizontally towards him.
"Arcane - Windthunder Slash!"
A small gust of wind surrounded her sword's blade, as it emitted flashes of lightning. In a blink of an eye, the blade was already right in front of him! But, he actually simply took a step back, and raised his two swords up to parry the incoming broadsword.
The fierce broadsword deviated from its original target, and Lois, who could not withstand the feedback, was sent flying in the air!
Accelerate! Elf of the Wind! Charge!
At the same time I charged towards them, I took out a shield from my ring. Currently, Lois was entirely exposed right in front of him, he will definitely take this chance to attack!
Just when he was about to attack, I crashed towards his right flank with my shield. Although the difference our levels were large, but Shield Bash's 100% stun effect will definitely activate, even if he's only pushed back by a single step, it was already enough!
Then I grabbed onto Lois and swung her to the back. At the same time, I directed a Blazing Flame spell onto the shield, sending myself flying towards the back as well.
The moment I left his side, my shield was sliced into pieces by his dual swords! That was dangerous. Fortunately, I dodged that quickly.
"Thank... thank you."
Lois who landed beside me got up, and expressed her thanks with an apologetic tone.
"No problem. That guy is stronger than all of us. Be careful!" "Un."
"Dale, how are you feeling?"
Seeing that his HP was close to full recovery, he should be alright in a couple more seconds.
"Earlier, where did he come out from?"
"He suddenly appeared out of nowhere. And this bastard is actually resistant to magic spells. I can tell it's definitely because of his armor. The black armor he's wearing under the cloak seems to have a certain amount of mithril mixed in it. My lightning was only able to stop him for a short moment, and then, he struck me down."
"Is that so... A high level opponent with good equipment?"
What a troublesome opponent, huh. And I can't use the magic I specialize in either. No, I'm currently a swordsman, and the techniques I know are only on the basic level.
I should have taken up Irlin's offer to teach me swordsmanship back then. I didn't think that I would encounter such a dilemma.
Just where the hell did that bastard Gabriel wander off to!
And obviously, our opponent wouldn't give us any time to catch our breath. After taking up a stance, as if he was a panther pouncing onto its prey, he immediately charged towards us!
"Time to move! Flank him from both sides!"
After giving instructions, Lois and I charged towards his two flanks, and then faced him at the same time.
We took his attacks head-on, but he lowered his body, and leaped over us! Is this guy's target... Dale?
He probably thought that Dale was still weak from the wound he inflicted on him
earlier. However, what he did not know was, the condition of our bodies are actually affected by the amount of HP we have.
I seem to be looking at something frightening! The thing Dale is holding in his hands... A railgun? "Lois, fall back!"
Just when I shouted that out, between us, a white electrical ray of light was shot
across us, sending us flying from the shockwave.
What the hell! Fortunately, we're currently party members, otherwise, we would have certainly died!
