I’ll Become a Villainess That Will Go Down in History - Chapter 396
I wasn’t moving as quickly as I wanted to because the Maddie collection had drained away most of my energy.
[If you keep dodging, you won’t win, you know. ]
My earlier kicking had prevented her from showing any openings, and I couldn’t attack her anywhere.3
But if she’s wielding the scythe this much, she must be expending a lot of energy… I noticed that the speed with which she swung the scythe was slowing down.
Still, she enthusiastically swings the scythe at me. Each swing was powerful and refined.
She was strong…. She was undeniably the real deal.
This forest was surely their garden. The opponent must have the advantage. I must somehow break out of this disadvantageous situation…
Unlike me, she was tall and strong. I had no choice but to take advantage of this. I closed the distance between us while trying to evade her.
I grabbed a small twig that had fallen to the ground as I closed in on her. She stopped swinging her scythe at that point, perhaps sensing danger, and kicked me in the chest with all her might.
The unbelievable force blew me away spectacularly, and I hit my back against a thick tree trunk.
What a woman… I wonder what kind of training it took for her to acquire such a powerful force.
The force of the kick likely caused me to cut my mouth, and blood dripped from my lip.
She approached me as I was gasping for breath. The stern and imposing atmosphere of her presence made me have respect for her.
Was it strange that I felt this way even though we are enemies…?
If we had been born and raised in the same environment, we might have been good friends and rivals.
[I had a little fun with you…]
She stood in front of me and swung her big blade down mercilessly.
I heard Duke-sama shout.
Sorry, I was not that weak of a woman to be killed in a place like this! I decided that I would definitely become a villainess who would go down in history!
I would never show any weakness to my opponents. I would put on a face that said I would win no matter how desperate the situation was.
As she got closer to me, I raised my body and kicked her right ankle with all my might. She staggered, and to throw her off balance even more, I kicked her from a lower position with my hands on the ground, lifting my leg up to her face.
She almost collapsed on the spot. She was quite a strong opponent, but I guess I won this time too…
I let out an uncontrollable yelp as she moved, just as she lost her balance and collapsed. In an instant, I was on my back on the ground, her scythe against my neck.
As I stared at the red-eyed woman above me, I realized my situation.
What just happened? I had no idea how she had managed to fight back from that position.
The only thing I could grasp was that she had the trunk of a monster.
[It’s important to stay on your guard until the end.]
She muttered as she looked me straight in the eye.
I could hear her clear voice in the quiet space, and although I did not know what was going on with Duke-sama and the others, I could feel their worried stares at me.
…Duke-sama and the others managed to get through with only three people against such a large group.
I could feel the tension in the air.
She kept her eyes on me and put more power into the scythe. I could feel my neck being cut a little. The sensation of blood flowing, the iron-like smell.
The woman raised her eyebrows at me, as I seemed to be somewhat relaxed in spite of such a disadvantageous situation.
[I’m not so sure about that. ]
I had a small knife pressed against her side.
I had just picked up a twig and turned it into a small knife with some magic I had left over.
I couldn’t fight unarmed against an opponent wielding a massive scythe.
