My Beloved Dog is the Strongest in Another World - Chapter 186
I Cooperated with the Villagers and Fought the Orcs
“We can fight too!”
“Fight in pairs or groups of three! Don’t try to fight an orc on your own!”
While still a little bewildered, the orcs began to charge at us.
Some of them had started to attack the horses that were tied to the wagons, but more than half were coming towards us.
…I felt bad for the horses, but it did give us a better chance.
“In general, orcs just charge straight ahead! Dodge their spears and then attack them!”
It had been that way earlier, but they did little else but charge at their target.
And so as long as you stay calm, it should not be too difficult to dodge them.
The villagers were going to attack in small groups. And as long as they could avoid the spears, even those who weren’t used to fighting should be able to deal with the orcs.
“Good, now! Go!”
“I’ve cut down many trees with this axe! Take this!”
“These orcs are nothing compared to the monsters in the forest!”
Near the entrance, the orcs that reached us first attacked. But the villagers dodged their spears and then surrounded them. Then they began to attack with a variety of weapons.
…Perhaps they fought like this whenever they encountered monsters in the forest. They appeared to have good teamwork.
“I can’t fall behind then! Hah!”
An orc charged at me in a straight line. I moved away from the thrusted spear and cut its arms, just like before.
There was little to fear once they lost their spear arm.
However, my swings must have been too weak, as the arm didn’t come off completely…
Still, one after another, we managed to take down the oncoming orcs.
It was because they weren’t too fast, and the herbs had sharpened my senses. However, I was starting to pant loudly as well.
Clearly, I needed more training and combat experience.
Besides, I had never actually swung my sword this much while hitting against something.
And unlike when swinging through the air, I had to keep moving my body, which was very tiring.
“I can…still go…”
All around me, the villagers continued to kill the orcs. But there were still more than half of them left.
And the villagers were tiring, just like me.
“…Some recovery herbs…no, there is no time for that…!”
If we all ate the herbs, then we could continue to fight without being affected by fatigue. But there was no time.
The orcs that had instinctively attacked the horses were now turning towards us and moving.
While we had the numerical advantage, they had momentum, and we were starting to be pushed back.
Even as I thought of this, a single orc charged at me.
I cut it down and muttered.
“If only I had a herb that raised my physical abilities…”
While it wouldn’t be a dramatic transformation, it would still make things a lot easier.
And not just for me, but for the villagers as well…
But there was no point in wishing for that now. And perhaps I was relying on Weed Cultivation too much…
Right now, I had to figure out a different way of getting through this situation.
“Hahh…ha… And…stay down!”
I cut the orc’s legs and knocked it to the ground.
As it tried to get back up, I thrust my sword into his chest.
…While this was my first battle…I wasn’t doing too bad.
Perhaps I was getting used to it. Even if there was something in the far back of my mind that was repelled by it all.
But right now, I had to ignore it.
“Hey! Damn it!”
Nearby, one of the villagers slipped on some orc blood, and I saw that an orc had taken the opportunity to pierce him.
But then the other villagers surrounded the orc with their weapons.
The villager who was injured could still get back to his feet, so he couldn’t have been hurt badly. Still, it seemed like he had been cut on the arm, and could no longer hold a sword.
So, they were starting to get injured…
While I could see it clearly, the orc was in a position where the villagers couldn’t see it. And it was raising its spear.
I shouted at them, but they were too distracted by the wounded man!
“Damn it! There’s no time!”
I spat, and then I dashed forward and stretched out my arm so that the sword moved between the orc and the villagers.
Clang! The sound echoed as sword and spear met.
The villagers finally realized what was happening and they turned their weapons towards the orc.
Two of the villagers swung their swords while the orc’s spear was still raised.
And after being cut a few times, the orc crumbled to the ground.
“Are you alright, pharmacist?”
“I’m fine. What about him?”
“Fine, thanks to you… But I can’t hold my sword…”
“You don’t have to. Just fall back immediately if you can’t fight! As long as it’s only a wound, I will be able to treat it later!”
“…Pharmacist…very well. I don’t want to get in your way… I’m sorry…”
Upon hearing my order, the wounded villager retreated.
It would be much harder to fight if we had to protect him at the same time.
And as long as he was alive, I could use some Loe on him later.
The villagers moved on to the other orcs.
And then a different orc thrust its spear at me, but I managed to dodge it.
However, even though there was an opening, I could no longer attack…
After blocking the spear to protect the villagers, my blade had been broken in half.
It had been given to me by Sebastian not too long ago. Though, I had used it a lot for training…perhaps I should have anticipated this.
Besides, it had been hitting the bones of the orcs that I attacked.
Well, it could also mean that I wasn’t using it properly…
