Shatei Kyokufuri Yumi-Ojisan - Chapter 200
Data.190 – Old Bowman, Ghost Bond
Hatake’s body was enveloped in golden…no, a dark orange aura!
He had cast it on me during the turf war. Full Enhance!
While it enhanced all of your abilities, the effect only lasted for a short while.
On top of that, you could only use it once a day…!
I wasn’t aware of just how much it boosted everything, given that the cool down was worse than even a combination charge attack…
While the enemy party was down to just Hatake now, we could not let our guard down.
He was…someone who could make miracles happen.
That being said, it was still true that we had a numerical advantage.
And so it was not necessary to employ some kind of surprise tactic.
We could just use brute force!
“Big Clear Arrow!”
While Clear Arrow had the demerit of weakening your arrow, Big Arrow was a charge attack.
Even if the power was reduced a little, it would be difficult to make them bounce with the reflect skill.
No, even getting the timing for reflecting them would be difficult because you couldn’t even see them.
While hitting Hatake with one of them would not be enough to take him down, it could create an opening that Necoco and Anne would not miss.
And once they went in for the attack, the game would be over!
However, as the invisible arrows shot towards him, Hatake did something surprising.
He swiftly moved as soon as I fired, and launched a close-range attack against Ann!
Hatake shouldn’t have been able to tell the timing of my arrows…!
After all, I was very far away from him.
It would have been obvious had we been close enough for him to see me.
However, it shouldn’t be possible unless you have an eyesight enhancing skill like Sniping Insight…
So Full Enhance was the reason for it…!
Indeed, since it was ‘Full’ it would be strange if it didn’t enhance something that an ordinary skill could!
And more than anything, it meant that Hatake could monitor my movements at this distance…!
And that showed how calm he was…!
Right now, Big Clear Arrow had pierced into the ground where no one was standing.
However, Hatake seemed to flinch for a split second.
…Huh? Was he surprised…?
Could it be that it had only looked like he was dodging it, but was in fact only thinking about attacking Anne…?
“Tsk… Calm yourself! He is all alone. So it makes sense that he would try and destroy Anne first, as she is the closest…!”
I can’t be distracted by his pace.
We just needed to make it past the 3 minutes and the effect would wear off.
And there would be no doubt of our victory!
There was no need to take risks now. Just limit his movements and buy time…!
And so I held my bow ready and aimed at Hatake.
But I couldn’t shoot.
“I see. He’s moving in so that I might accidentally shoot her…”
With his increased speed, Hatake had moved close to Anne and started to attack with his flag.
At this range, her star sphere would be useless.
And so while Anne could do nothing but defend herself, Hatake pushed in and with vicious attacks, constantly changing position.
I really wanted to help her, but I couldn’t hit him at this distance when he was moving so fast…!
One of the disadvantages of long range was that there was a brief lag before you hit your target.
And at nearly 500 meters distance, it would take a few seconds for the arrow to land.
Up until now, there had always been a decent amount of space between enemy and ally, so I didn’t have to worry about shooting the wrong person.
Anne would swing her weapon and keep the enemy away, while Necoco dragged enemies into holes, so I never really had to support them.
It would have been difficult to do that anyway, while worrying about Hatake, Petta and Cymba. And so I was grateful for that.
However, Anne and Hatake were much too close now.
Besides, he was so fast. And I could not predict where he would be a second later.
There was nothing that I could do…!
But Anne’s HP would not last much longer…!
“In that case, I will sacrifice myself, just like a nun might!”
And then Anne threw her arms around Hatake as he attacked her!
“Necoco! Get us both…!”
For a second, Necoco disappeared, and then she reappeared in a different spot.
Raijin Zekku cut through the enemy at a speed that the eye couldn’t follow…!
This charge attack was like a close-range version of my own Windgod Sky Tear, and it had cut into Hatake’s neck.
“Uhhh… To think that I lost due to inferior power….!”
Anne had been shaken off and their places had been reversed!
In spite of being a Flag Magician rear guard who mainly buffed others, with Full Enhance alone, he had more power than even an advance guard…!
And so it was Anne whose neck was cut. Her HP went down to 0 as she died.
“Target him when it wears off! It’s too difficult to damage him in this current state…!”
Anne was thinking about the battle even during her final moment before disappearing.
As she had said, it would be difficult to damage Hatake now…
It was hard enough hitting him when he was so fast, but even if I could, his defenses would have been boosted considerably.
Necoco followed Anne’s words and began to use her own speed to distract Hatake.
And while he was not fast enough to easily catch up with her, as she had put everything into speed, she was also not able to shake him off…!
And then he would read her movements and catch her. And then they would fight.
But in this state, Hatake had the firepower and would have an advantage…!
This was bad… But I thought of something. I just hope I can make it in time…!
“Necoco. I came to help you!”
Hatake turned around in surprise.
What he saw…was me jogging towards him!
I was jogging like an old man, but that was very ‘me’!
Unless you knew about the Grow Card ‘Mirror Alice Reflection,’ which had a skill that let you summon a decoy, you would be stunned for a few seconds.
On top of that, I was using Letter Arrow to send my voice. So it would not be strange for him to think that I was jogging towards him…!
Of course, Necoco was also shocked.
However, she was the only player here who knew about Mirror Alice Reflection’s effect…!
After all, I had acquired it while adventuring with her. And she had witnessed me using it.
Furthermore, it was after acquiring this card that I first heard about the Ghost Guild.
“Blue Electric Claws – Dual Claws… Cool Shock!”
Necoco’s charge attack slammed into Hatake after he stopped moving.
The blue thunder…pierced his body!
