I Was a Small Fish When I Reincarnated, but It Seems That I Can Become a Dragon, so I Will Do My Best - Chapter 215
Chapter 5-17. Side -Hoen- Buying Time
The moment I activated the [Bud of Crimson Lotus], several flame buds grew on the ground.
They were as tall as a person and grew in parallel rows with an even spacing.
There were fifty buds in total.
With this many, it would be possible to stop them in their tracks.
“Uugh …… it’ …… consumes a lot of mana.”.
The skill is a big one that eats up most of my MP.
I only have 30MP left.
This makes it too dangerous to continue flying, so I have to retreat early.
I send instructions to the adventurers who are preparing to retreat by gliding.
It is enough to hold me back! Be ready by then!”
This skill is capable of spreading attacks over an area for an extended period of time.
However, even if it is for a prolonged period of time, it will disappear as soon as the spark is extinguished.
This skill is similar to a trap.
If they are not ready to retreat by then, there is a possibility of casualties.
The enemy’s advance is still slow, but they are still steadily advancing toward here.
There is not much time left.
“Bring me as many mana potions as you can!”
“U-use mine for now!”
There was no need to worry about the taste.
I opened the lid and poured it down in one gulp.
It tastes like garbage!
I knew it tasted bad.
But I recovered some of my MP.
If I repeat this several times, I can join the battle again.
“Houen-san! The magic squad has been deployed!”
“Then tell them to stand by until I give the order!”
Alright, it should be easy to break the nose of the battle now.
Now all that remains is for the vanguard units to prepare to retreat.
There is still plenty of time to do so.
By then, please do something to clean up the mess.
We just need to prepare a carriage for people to ride in.
At this point, it might be better to throw away the cargo, even if it is essential.
If the carriage is not enough, we will throw away everything but the food.
“Tsk! I’m heading back to the sky! Prepare to retreat immediately!”
I fly back into the sky to observe the enemy.
The enemy air force seems to be approaching us in formation.
Thankfully, there are only a few of them.
I can take out most of them if I attack them a little.
As for the …… monsters approached the Bud of Crimson Lotus.
When the monsters approached the Bud of Crimson Lotus, their bodies ignited.
Startled by this, they try to extinguish the fire, but in doing so, they come into contact with the monsters around them, causing a secondary disaster.
There is a wonderful benefit to my skills.
It’s the [Endless Flame].
It is not a mere fire, once ignited, it will not extinguish until the target burns out.
It is not so easy to extinguish it by simply wetting it with water, though it will not burn without oxygen.
No one in this world understood oxygen or carbon dioxide.
And the other party are monsters.
There was no way they would think of extinguishing the fire by putting out the oxygen.
The number of burning monsters increased rapidly, and finally a wall of flames appeared in front of me.
With that many pillars of fire, the march would come to a halt.
The enemies in the sky, were a different story.
When they approached the adventurers, they glided over and attacked with great vigor.
Now, I must do something about these guys while the enemies in the ground troops are stranded.
The Bud of Crimson Lotus is a skill that can transfer fire to the opponent.
Since the flames held by the Bud of Crimson Lotus are gradually shared with the monsters, the Bud of Crimson Lotus will eventually be extinguished.
Even though there are so many of them, it is not enough.
But it seems that most of the Acid Dogs have been exterminated.
With this, I can now leave all the defense to Ouren.
We will think about the rest later.
Now we must exterminate the enemies in the sky!
“Hold it right there! [Flame Feather]!”
I flap my flame wings widely and move them as if I were sending out wind.
As I do so, the flame wings fly out with great force and penetrate enemies that are flying in the sky.
This is the best cost-effective skill among my skills.
It consumes 30 MP, but as long as I don’t close the flame wings, I can keep shooting for as long as I want!
There is no way I would not use such a cost effective skill, and it would not be an exaggeration to say that my proficiency in this skill is almost at its maximum!
I have confidence in that!
The rate of fire is about that of a machine gun!
It’s like the tracing bullet, so I can see its trajectory, although it will be difficult to avoid it.
So I scatter a barrage of bullets around the area where the enemy is, and they will fall on their own.
It is an easy task.
It would be nice if it had tracking capability, but that is an extravagance.
As I fly, I destroy the enemies in the sky.
“Listen, you guys, concentrate only on the enemies on the ground! Understand?! When that wall of flame disappears, that’s the signal to attack! Your timings are your own! I repeat. When the wall of flame disappears and you see the enemy appear, start shooting! But don’t let your magic run out! You won’t be able to escape! Understand?”
The morale is still high.
If this is the case, they will shoot out magic that maximizes their power.
If the vanguard were to bump into each other like this, morale might have hit rock bottom.
I’m a coward who can’t throw my life away like the Knights.
“Though I will not die!!”
“Houen-san! The retreat is ready! We can go anytime!”
“Oh! Wonderful work! At the worst, you can throw away the supplies! We’ll retreat as soon as we meet up with the magician unit!”
Now we can send everyone home without being injured!
And now for the final touch.
The flames were almost at their limit.
The opponent must have been waiting for the wall of flames to disappear.
Wasn’t the opponent that stupid?
Then, I heard the sound of magic being fired from the camp on the left.
It was thunder magic.
It went straight for the enemy at once and caused an explosion.
That was the signal.
A loud chorus of magic chants and the sound of explosions echoed across the battlefield.
As expected from a high-ranked adventurer.
Each one of them is a powerful magic in their own way.
Although I don’t think we will be able to exterminate all of them, this will still be a great help to them.
This battle would change the defense battle later on.
There was one unit with firepower that was off the charts, but that was probably Rose, an S-rank adventurer.
The two members of the Lightning Bow were entrusted with command of the vanguard unit and the magic unit.
I couldn’t handle this many people on my own.
Thank God those two were there.
After a few moments, I could no longer hear the chanting or the sounds of explosions.
All of us must have exhausted most of their magic power by now.
Then there was only one thing left to do.
“ALL UNIT, RETREAT!!!”
