Otome Game no Heroine de Saikyou Survival [WN] - Chapter 123.2
If he was hit by ice-based magic, his actions would be hindered by the low temperature. However, Nero avoided all the Ice Lance by using only his physical abilities and senses, but at the end of his dodge, he found the blue-shelled bear that had turned into a fireball and was now rampaging about.
The blue-shelled bear attacked Nero, who was pushed in that direction, and Ice Lance rained down on him again.
Nero, however, without a moment’s hesitation, chomped down on the throat of the blue-shelled bear engulfed in fire, crushed its neck as and lifting it up despite its size and was used as a shield to block the Ice Lance. Carla smiled a cruel smile akin to madness at Nero, a powerful enemy who charged at her with a blue-shelled bear as a shield.

“Fight me, ash-crowned straight!”
Gilgan screamed in anger as I killed his men while dodging Gilgan’s onslaught.
His pursuing blows gradually become messy with anger and impatience. From Gilgan’s point of view, even though he understands that I was a dangerous enemy who could destroy the guild, he cannot stand being manhandled by an opponent who a Rank 4 which was lower.
From what I have observed so far, Gilgan was capable of leading his men and taking action on requests that the central branch of the Guild of Assassins had avoided. However, looking at it from a different direction, I sensed a thoughtlessness and arrogance that was unbelievable for a guild master who was entrusted with the lives of his subordinates.
Such people who possessed this kind of attitude have a low tolerance for patience. Impatience and frustration reduce the accuracy of his technique.
As I avoided his large sweeping strikes with a light step as if to provoke him, the hem of my skirt was cut off and slightly tangled around my leg.
“Die! [Cross Blade]!!!”
Seeing that momentary gap, Gilgan unleashes his Combat Skill. As I recalled, it was a two-strike Combat Skill just like [Twin Slash], a dagger technique. The difference was that [Twin Slash] shortened the distance to increase the attack power, while [Cross Blade] was a Combat Skill to gain distance, leaving only the power of the central part combined.
That might certainly help him in his current situation. However, just as I was able to notice the roughness of Gilgan’s technique, his men, knowing his temper, were slowing down out of fear of getting involved, and Gilgan, narrowed in vision by his anger, was oblivious to it.
Gilgan shouted involuntarily as [Cross Blade] slashed through the last of his men behind me, as I ducked to fall directly behind him.
At that moment, I spun around to kick in the direction he fell, and using my long, flipped skirt as a distraction, then threw a knife that I pulled out of my thigh.
Gilgan, who quickly came back to his senses, recovered from the difficulty of using his Combat Skill and parried the knife with his machete, which grazed him slightly and barely hit a vital spot.
At that moment, I jumped out of the way, tearing the tangled hem, and brandished the [Sickle Type] pendulum down towards him. But Gilgan parried it with his cuirass and slashed at me with the machete from below.
I avoided it as I backed away, keeping my distance from the beginning–
Suddenly, Gilgan raised a [Roar] and my body went stiff for a moment. It was not on the same level as [Intimidation]. It was a stun-type skill similar to my [Phantom Pain], and provided the opportunity, Gilgan, who was right in front of me, raised his machete high in the air.
The level 5 Combat Skill [Vorpal Blade] was released, and multiple invisible slashes struck me.
The first shot was barely avoidable, even though it was just a graze. However, it was almost impossible to avoid the second one at such a close range. Of course, Gilgan must have thought so, too. He was “convinced” that it would be a situation in which he would hit me with his Combat Skill.
The [Roar] mentioned earlier did not last as long as [Phantom Pain]. After recovering from the momentary stiffness, I tossed something from the hem of my skirt, and the cloth shook slightly from the slight wind pressure coming from the slash, and I dove head first into the “gap between sword blows” after I anticipated the first slash, while avoiding being hit on a vital point by the Combat Skill. I threw a blade of the pendulum at Gilgan, who was immobilized by the stiffness after using the Combat Skill.
Gilgan raised another [Roar], making a sound like muscles snapping from all over his body as he spurts out blood, and avoids the pendulum blade that was thrown at his face.
“…You’re doing well, aren’t you?”
Gilgan laughs as he bared his fangs with a bloody face. He probably possessed [voice]-type skills as well. Even a life-or-death, split-second attack couldn’t take Gilgan down.
It was still not strong enough to be decisive. Defeating one’s subordinates to create a one-on-one situation, and in the process disturbing the enemy’s concentration to reduce the accuracy of the technique, was not enough to be decisive, even if it could bring the two sides to an even level.
(Then what to do…)
At that moment, a sound and impact that sounded like a magic explosion echoed from a distance.
Keeping my eyes on Gilgan, I listened carefully and heard Nero’s roar and a faintly familiar voice.
“What the heck was that sound!”
I lightly answered Gilgan’s voice, who couldn’t see what was going on, and I dashed off towards the place where Nero and that person were fighting.
“Where are you going, ash crowned!!!”
Gilgan throws a knife at me as I started to move, and I back stepped and flicked the knife with my [Heavy Type] pendulum, dodging a “stray bullet” that came from behind me, and the [fireball] that came flying down exploded between me and Gilgan.
Gilgan jumped out of the way, but his arm was burned by the flames. The [Magic Shield] that I quickly deployed was also broken, and I was damaged by the heat and impact, but during that time, I put away my pendulum and readied my black dagger and knife.
“This is now our battlefield.”
I would now show you how I fought and crushed the guilds.
