I Was a Small Fish When I Reincarnated, but It Seems That I Can Become a Dragon, so I Will Do My Best - Chapter 187
It should be split into 2 part, and I’m too bussy with the irl stuff so…. here we go
Chapter 4-33. Dungeon ⑩ Capture
Alena was out of magic and unable to use her skills, so we had to stand in front of her to take care of the fake me.
As for me, I’m feeling a mixture of emotions, but I think I can handle it …….
Even though it is a fake me, its a threat to Reizen because I have a defense penetration.
Although I want to be very careful, I am not used to fighting in close combat.
In that regard, Reizen is a step or two ahead of me, so there should be no problem if I leave the close combat to him.
However, it is better for Uchikage not to move forward too much.
The reason for this is that the skill [Haze Manipulation] would allow it to know Uchikage’s movements.
I admit he is really fast, that would be the end of the story, but I had a chance to beat him.
If the opponent has the same mindset, it would be very dangerous for Uchikage to get close to it.
But now, there is Reizen.
If they were to come at me together, I would have to get serious to beat them.
In addition, this time, I will join in the fight.
In this case, I’m sure we’ll be able to find a way to win.
“Reizen! I’m counting on you!”
“Leave it to me!”
“Uchikage, attack when you see an opening! Once you land a shot, get out of the way!”
They both rush forward at once.
I create reamed water spear as I did before and start attacking the fake me.
At the same time, the other counteracts it with the same skill.
A barrage of water spears were slashing at each other in mid-air.
In an instant, Uchikage closed the gap and swung his claws out to strike a blow at the fake me.
It sliced through its side, sending shards of glass flying around it.
I tilted my head.
I still had a lot of skills, but my opponent had not even deployed its defensive skills.
I wondered if there was a reason why he was only using the techniques I had been using until now, which might be …….
“Uchikage! Change of strategy! Try a series of attacks!”
“? Roger that.”
At that moment, the fake me was blown up into the air, and Uchikage attacked it with a series of blows.
My body was being chipped away as I watched, and by the time Uchikage finished his attack, it had turned into a lump of pieces of silver.
The last attack blows it to pieces, but it quickly gets back up again.
The fake me never uses any defensive skills even after being attacked that much.
So it would be …….
“The fake me can only use the skills I used in this dungeon!”
“What did you just say, Aniki?”
“The fake me, can’t use any defensive skills! Reizen, you’ve got to finish it now!”
After hearing this, Reizen immediately kicked off the ground and approached the fake me.
He then activates his [Piercing Hands].
The fake me, who is particularly good at close combat, counterattacks Reizen with one hand and elbows him with the other, which hits him directly in the abdomen and blows him wide open.
It was a direct hit to the abdomen, and Reizen was blown away.
“Reizeni-dono was blown away!?”
“Ah …… my defense penetration and wave fist. ……”
It seems that it possesses skills that are automatically activated.
I don’t remember where I used the Wave Fist, but I probably used it without realizing it and it was copied.
I mean, I’m not that athletic. ……
It parried Reizen’s attack, but I don’t think I would be able to make the same move if I actually fought Reizen. ……
How could I copy that kind of movement?
I think it’s a bit too much.
“It hurts….. . Aniki’s skill seriously penetrates my defenses. …… ouch-ouch ouch…!!!!!.”
It seems that my skills are very troubling for Reizen.
Although Reizen has a resistance skill called impact, I was very surprised that he was blown away easily.
I wondered if Wave Fist had this much offensive power, …… but perhaps this is thanks to its defensive penetration.
I wonder how far the defensive penetration can penetrate the defensive skills. ……
“This is hard isn’t it? Uchikage’s attack hit it really hard but it didn’t break. ……”
“Though it was a really clean hit……”
That looks painful.
Uchikage came back to this side in an instant, but when I looked at it, I saw that one of the claws had been broken.
I wondered if it was that hard …… though it should not have been used very often yet.
I think it’s more like …… the ability of Uchikage and the performance of the claw are not matched.
So, I’m not going to worry about that right now, II gotta do something.
The fake me has not moved since it blew Reizen away, and is in a passive posture, looking alternately at Reizen and at us.
This battle is still going on in the air, but the fake one seems to be a little inferior to me.
The fact that it is in a passive stance suggests that it is already on the edge, but since it is acting in that state, we must not let our guard down.
“Shall I do another heaven split……?”
“How about I try to blow it again?”
“Can you do it?”
Uchikage approached the fake me again in an instant, this time kicking me with his foot and slamming me against the wall.
The fake me seemed to be unable to keep up with Uchikage’s speed, and I was blown away by the wall in an instant.
Many of Uchikage’s skills are specialized on legs, not arms.
Thus, this is Uchikage’s main attack.
The fake me was blown away with an inaudible voice, and it was stuck against the wall.
No, it was still alive, but it was buried in the wall and was unable to move.
It seemed to be struggling desperately, but it couldn’t seem to get out.
“Well done, Uchikage! [Heaven Spplit]!”
While Uchikage was attacking, I was grabbing KageOrochi in my hand..
This time, I grasped it with both hands and slashed at the fake me with a massive swing from the top.
The slash goes toward the fake me, gouging the ground, and cuts through the ground and the rocks on the ceiling, leaving it motionless.
It was such a powerful blow that the ground crumbled, and the fake me seemed to be unable to withstand it.
After confirming that the shaking of the ground had stopped, I looked around.
The glass shards are scattered in four different places, and they don’t seem to be moving any more.
“It’s finally over. ……”
But we can’t let our guard down yet.
I move to the shard of glass and pick it up.
There was no way for me to know if it had magic in it or not.
I picked it up and found that it was just an ordinary piece of glass, and there was nothing odd about it.
“There are some strange things, aren’t there ……?”
“Are we all done?”
Thankfully, almost no one was hurt.
Uchikage seems to have been taken by the F-Reizen, and there are some scratches on his body,……, but the ones that were the most injured this time were Reizen.
“Are you alright? Here’s some recovery water.”
“Thank you very much. ……”
Reizen was seriously attacked by the fake me.
The attack was so powerful that it seemed to have broken several of Reizen’s ribs.
When I think about it, it was probably a good thing that I had stopped the fake me with Alena’s skill.
If that thing had struck Uchikage with even a single blow in close combat, Uchikage would have suffered.
In any case, Reizen had been seriously wounded to this point.
I gave him some recovery water, and he seemed to recover quickly and stood up.
For the time being, Reizen should be okay.
I’ll be the one to heal Uchikage with a great heal.
Because I think he worked the hardest this time.
“Thank you very much.”
“Hey, me too! It was really painful. ……”
“Thanks for your hard work. You too, Alena.”
At least we are safe here for now.
Now, the problem is how to get out of this place. …… that mirror, which was the only thing that we could rely on, has been shattered. I think we have no choice but to go back the way we came.
……I would like to pay tribute to Alena who continues to draw the map to the end even at a time like this. ……
“So, what do we do now?”
“Even if you tell me what to do, …… we have no choice but to go back the way we came from ……?
“But it’ s strange, isn’t it?”
“The guild said they would raise the rank of adventurers who made it to the lowest floor, but this is not a dungeon equivalent to a B rank, and there are no guild officials here, which is supposed to be the lowest floor to begin with. How could they know that the adventurers had reached the lowest floor if there were no guild members there?”
If you think about it, that is certainly true.
Since there was no other way back, we had to return to the entrance after all.
If that were the case, it would be impossible to prove that me and the others had reached the lowest level.
We might be able to take this piece of glass with us, but we were not told that when we entered the dungeon, so it is unlikely that this would prove anything.
If this is the case, I should have asked around about what happens when you conquer a dungeon and how to prove it. ……
Was it bad that I was concentrating only on preparing the luggage?
Gathering information is important. ……
No, the truth is that we could probably go home if we just pass the magic through the magic stone we have, but that would definitely not be proof of anything. ……
Well, the main problem is that, as Uchikage said, this dungeon is not seems like a B rank dungeon.
In fact, I still don’t know how strong we are, but if this is a B-rank dungeon, it means we are more than that.
At any rate, I think we could have conquered this dungeon.
I won’t give up on that part.
“I don’t really know what’s going on here, but ……, why don’t we just go home?”
“Let’s get some rest before we go home, okay?”
“Ahh,…… that’s right,…….”
As expected, it would not be good to go in the current state..
Alena’s magic power is depleted, and Reizen was seriously injured just a few moments ago.
So we decided not to go for a moment.
They all react to the sound and immediately get into a fighting stance.
We look in the direction of the sound to see if it is still moving, but we don’t know where …… the sound came from earlier.
As the four of us carefully searched our surroundings, a light suddenly emerged from the ground.
“What the ……?”
Uchikage noticed something and ran toward the light.
It was so sudden that he couldn’t prevent it from happening, but nothing happened as he approached it.
Apparently, it was not dangerous.
“What is it, Uchikage?”
“It’s a magic circle!”
When we got closer and looked at the light, we saw that it was indeed the same magic circle we had seen in the church.
From a distance, the light was too bright to be recognized as a magic circle.
“Where does this …… lead to ……?”
“What is this magic circle in the first place?”
“You’ll know when you step on it!”
“Wait a -“
Reizen stepped on the magic circle with both feet without any hesitation.
Then, not only did his feet light up, but mine, Alena’s, and Uchikage’s feet also began to glow.
(TL/N : ;p)
As soon as the light disappeared in an instant, we were transported out of the space to somewhere else.
