Third Outer World Story Series: Pumpkin Sorcerer - Chapter 79
Translator: MadHatter Editor: MadHatter
“Good grief, the Fourth Prince’s trump card is in rather unsavory taste.”
“Guhuguhuguhu, I suppose you are just as revolting as you look.”
When one of the individuals in his immediate vicinity ran their lips spontaneously and without halting, Pumpkin turned to gaze at them and mused, “Indeed,” to himself.
“Unfortunately, unlike you guys, mine is a natural product and isn’t so hideous that I can’t display it freely.”
“What did you say!”
“Are you messing with me!”
“You’re the one who has a repellent appearance!”
“I see, is that soー”
He didn’t appear like someone who would make a person puke up at first sight, though, like those guys. Instead, his body was modeled on the pumpkin that Tangosack put his heart and soul into creating.
However, something other than these guys’ looks may be the major reason they can’t be revealed to the outside world.
“I’ll go ahead and presume you are the Fourth Prince’s vassals now. I don’t have any idea how you ended up looking like that, but unless you get out of my way, I’m going to let you off the hook. Picking on the weak is not my hobby.”
[[[Giggle, giggle, giggle.]]]
Those surrounding him laughed at his words, their misshapen bodies shaking wildly.
“Gugagagaga! Aren’t we being underestimated… Do you think you can take on all of us by yourself? Besides, you wouldn’t even pass through here.”
The man standing in front of Pumpkin with two horns sprouting from his forehead… who looked exactly like an ogre glared at him and said something to indicate that the negotiations had broken down.
“Hahaha, in fact, if I kill you here, I might be let out of here as a reward for doing so.”
“Kihyahyahya, that’s good. Once we’re out, we can do whatever we want with this power.”
“Gebogebogebo, that sounds good. When I get out there, I’m going to eat a young woman. “
“Kyukokokoko, then I will eat a kid. I will chase down the running kids one by one…”
“Kishishishi, you’ve got good taste. But young men’s meat is likewise very chewy, don’t you agree?”
On the contrary, they articulated their sickening aspirations as if they deserved to have their wishes granted.
Apparently, as soon as they shed their human form, their human knowledge and words were retained, yet their hearts were discarded.
Yup. Being able to go easy on them is nice.
“By the way, you guys?”
“Are you sure you should be giving me this much time?”
As Pumpkin informed them that, the resonance spell was about to be cast when he took it out accompanied by a flash striking at the same time as its activation.
“[Resonance Spell・Burdock Rapier].”
[[[You must be kidd… Arghhhh!!]]]
The magical sword slashed through every malformation in its path, splitting their bodies in two and sending them shrieking, with only a handful avoiding the onslaught.
[Resonance Spell・Burdock Rapier] was a resonance spell using burdock, which was in season this time of year. The burdock, which served as the catalyst, was to be wrapped using a spell that would generate a blade of magic power in accordance with the user’s intent.
There were numerous changes between this resonance spell and another one of a similar sort like [Resonance SpellCucumber Blade], in terms of the strength, power, and range of the blade, but the main distinction was whether it was a single shot or had an effect for a brief period of time.
“Damn, what kind of crazy magic are you using…”
“You little cheat… underestimating us…”
“My leg aaaaaaah!”
“Squeak, squeak, squeak, that was close.”
“Hmm. There are only three of you left.”
Pumpkin went to the three who had evaded his [Resonance Spell・Burdock Rapier] after being impressed by the vigor of the deformed creatures who were still alive despite having their bodies torn to bits.
One was an ogre standing in front of him.
One was a massive man with red thorns sprouting from his body who was standing next to the ogre.
One of them was a little man who resembled a squirrel and was perched on the red-spined man’s shoulder.
These three were obviously more competent than the others.
“How dare you… Gegya!?”
“[Tornado Blast]. Now that I understand what you guys are trying to do up there, I’m not going to let you get away with it.”
“Squeak, squeak, squeak.”
While using [Tornado Blast] to finish off those who were still breathing, and declaring to the three survivors who were still in one piece that he had no intention of letting them escape, the one who had been torn up after losing his lower body leaped at Pumpkin using only the strength of his upper body only to be seized by the head and be crushed.
In fact, if these guys went to the surface, they would definitely utilize their power to attack innocent people. He had no justification for allowing them to flee, on his part..
“Oh yeah. Just out of curiosity, is it safe to assume that the Fourth Prince is up to something down here?”
“Huh! Who’s going to tell you! Right, Karamuji, Toririsu!”
“Yeah, that’s right. No way we are going to tell you. Monokio.”
“I mean, if I tell him, I’ll get killed. You two.”
Tsk, I suppose they were not foolish enough to get carried away. If it is those three fools… hmm? Those three fools?
Karamuji… Toririsu… Monokio…
“Aaaaah!? You are those three fools!!”
[[Who the hell are the three fools! I’m not!!]]
“You have spectacularly exposed yourselves, you know. Both of you.”
The one who reacted to Pumpkin’s surprised voice was the ogre… Monokio and the one with red thorns… Karamuji, was the one who yelled out, while the squirrel… Toririsu was the one who responded to his joke.
“Heh, uh, yeah. You looked so different, I didn’t even notice… I mean, you guys survived well after that… hmmm.”
“Oh, I remember now! You’re the guy who blasted us off that time (during the fight with Entdragon)!”
“Damn it! Because of you, we can no longer stay in Kunuki territory, and we’re stuck here! You’re responsible for this!
“Hah! Responsibility? Then take responsibility for what you have done…”
Apparently, the other party realized that they knew Pumpkin.
But you know… I am in the same boat as you guys. Do you guys comprehend that? Oh, no, I don’t particularly need you three to grasp it. Either way, it doesn’t change what I have to do.
What I have to do is…
“I’ll send you to Lean-sama myself!”
