I Was a Small Fish When I Reincarnated, but It Seems That I Can Become a Dragon, so I Will Do My Best - Chapter 230
Chapter 5-32. Side -Reizen- Plopping Out
I’ve been running for a while since then, but I can’t get any closer to the magic crystal!
Even though it’s the closest place, the centipedes are holding me back and I can’t move!
“Dammit! This is frustrating!”
“Just do it faster!”
“Easy to say than done ! [Explosive Fist]!”
Even if I kill all three of them at once, new enemies will spring up soon after.
This keeps happening over and over again, and I can’t move forward at all!
I was lucky that Aniki destroyed them in the dungeon with his water spear, but I can’t say the same this time!
I can’t attack because they are buried in the ground!
And aniki isn’t even here in the first place!
MoreoverI don’t have a long-range attack!
A witch girl named Irza is cutting down centipedes with wind magic.
She doesn’t chant.
But even for me, I have to say the name of the skill when I use it!
Anyway, I’m running a little low on MP!
Should I take it away from them?
I make sure the centipede rushes toward me and uses my skill when it attacks.
I grab it firmly by the fangs and activate magic absorption, taking away its MP.
The centipede must have realized that their MP was being absorbed, and they are flailing around trying to shake me off, but unfortunately, no matter how much they swing around and hit the wall, I don’t take any damage at all.
So I’ll just keep going until they run out of MP!
Until my MP is sufficient, please don’t appear again!
I can’t even use my usual battle stance on a monster this big!
I can use it to evade them, though!
I use my piercing hand to pierce the centipede’s head, as its MP has been exhausted.
The centipede will no longer move if I do this.
But a new centipede jumped out again.
“There’s no end to this!”
“It’s all thanks to that magic crystal isn’t it! Do you know how close the magic crystal is?”
“It’s under that fountain!”
I can see the location now.
The distance is still a few hundred meters.
The centipedes are all heading this way to keep us from getting too close to the magic crystal.
Thanks to this, not much damage has been caused, but the sheer number of centipedes is hard to deal with.
The battle never ends.
But we can’t just leave!
If we wait until later, there will be more damage!
However, I can’t get close to it!
“Witch girl! Can’t you do something?”
“It’s not like I can’t do anything, but it’s gonna blow up a few houses!”
“AH HELL NAH!”
There’s no choice!
It takes a lot of MP, but I’m sure this will do the trick!
“Witch Girl! Can you handle it by yourself for a minute?”
“No problem! The heck you call the witch girl! I told you, it’s Irza!”
“I’ll leave it to you, then! [Earth Spirit]!”
As expected, 100 MP is too much!
But with this, I can bring the magic crystal over here!
I immediately move the ground where the magic crystal is located, and start popping it out of the ground.
Cover it with soil and let it move toward me.
All that is left is to clean up the remaining centipedes, so I use the ability of the earth spirit to drag all the centipedes into the ground.
With a rumbling sound, the centipede sank to the ground and finally quieted down.
Once the magic crystal was taken out of the ground, the springing of the centipedes temporarily stopped.
At least we’ve got this under control now!
“Hey! Don’t throw it!”
The witch girl managed to catch it.
I threw it properly so that she could definitely catch it.
But at least I’ve calmed down for now.
Now I wonder what she’ll do with it. ……
“How long does it take to deactivate? If it takes too long, I’ll go to the next one.”
“How many more are there?”
“Well, I guess there are three more places to go from here.”
This ability is not versatile either, and I have to be within a certain range to know where it is.
That’s why I had a hard time confirming the location even in the underground.
But once I figured it out, the search became a lot easier!
I think it’s about a kilometer radius, but I don’t know the exact distance. (0.62 mile)
I don’t know the exact distance.
…… But if there are three within that distance, doesn’t that mean there are a lot of others buried in the ground!
Uwaaaaaah, I don’t want to detect them anymore !!!
If they were scattered all over the country, it would be a catastrophe!
Not all of the magic crystals seem to be working yet, but if we don’t hurry, we could be in real trouble!
“Eh!? Hold up!! What are you doing with that!!!”
A little centipede is coming out!
Or rather, the crystal has been broken in half!
What is this little witch doing?
……Huh, but they haven’t attacked us…………
What was that?
“I’ve traced the magic power, and it turns out that all the magic crystals buried in the ground now contain the magic power of the same person.”
“…… hmm? What does that have to do with anything?”
“Well, it’s just that it makes my job a little easier.”
After saying that, she crushed the small centipede she was holding.
The crystal turned gray and seemed to have lost its power.
“Alright, all that’s left to do now is to exterminate it.”
“…… Eh? Is it over already?”
“I told you so. The magic crystal can be easily duplicated by the same device. And since all of these magic crystals are connected by magic power, it feels like I mixed them with my magic power to confuse them and destroy them.”
“…. Is it similar to computer virus?”
“What is that?”
I don’t know much about it either.
The reaction of the magic crystal is disappearing rapidly!
“The witch girl is a pretty amazing person!”
“……, Somehow I’m not happy about the way you said that.”
“Hell yeah! I’m going to crush the rest of the monsters then!
….. But I can’t detect the monsters. ……
Which way should we go? …….
“Which do you think is better?”
Where is that witch girl!
Hnghh… She’s someone that I don’t really understand.
She knew a lot about magic crystals,……, though.
“Hmm, well, that’s okay! If I go to the place where the crystal was, I can find the centipedes, right? I’m going!”
