Shatei Kyokufuri Yumi-Ojisan - Chapter 224
Data.214 – Old Bowman, The Real…
No matter how strong Mannen’s defense ability was, it took some damage to its HP and shell during the earlier crash with Garbow, and so it could not withstand Armageddon Arrow.
And I had shot the arrow so that it went through the center of the fortress-like shell.
It wasn’t that I knew Vera’s precise location, but if Mannen’s insides were similar to a tank in structure, then Vera should be there…!
First, Mannen’s HP was carved away completely, and its body disappeared.
And then Vera appeared from within the fading light.
But her body was also fading…!
“You two are a better combination in spite of you not being a Unison Master… Well done! I must admit my defeat! Still, I did everything that I could…! It was delivered just fine…!”
What? What did she do…?
She said that it was delivered, but I hadn’t seen her use the cannons to launch anything… As I thought about this, an announcement rang in my head. Satomi had been killed by Macoco.
At the same time, there was the loud sound of an explosion, and buildings being destroyed…it was close by!
“Macoco is just like you, and usually plays solo. Before she met me in a different game, she just cooperated with NPCs and defeated strong enemies. And so I can say this…the fight has only just begun! You’ll see the real Macoco Strange come out now…!”
And then Vera disappeared completely.
At the same time, the buildings on the street crashed down, and something flowed in with the bricks and rubble.
One of them was Necoco Strange, who was covered in wounds.
And the other was… Macoco Strange, who had a pink aura around her…!
And in her hand, she held a giant, black boomerang!
I believe it was called Curse of Wing NEXT…!
It was Crowkus Jr. after being transformed!
In other words, Crowkus Jr. had survived Garbow’s underwater attacks and returned to the surface to reunite with its master…!
So monster players had monster Unisons…!
Vera must have been talking about Crowkus Jr. then.
Garbow had been chasing Crowkus the whole time, but Vera got in the way.
And then I helped him… If that was how things went, then it wouldn’t have been impossible for me to have encountered Crowkus Jr. and attacked it.
It was just a few second’s difference. The shifting of the mist…
And that difference had been enough to allow Macoco and Crowkus. Jr to reunite!
It was like giving an ogre its club…!
And while I felt quite intimidated by her presence, I had to calm myself and figure out what that aura was!
“Necoco! What effect does that aura have?”
“…Huh!? O-old man!? Since when were you here!?”
“A while ago! In fact, you’re the one that came here…”
Her concentration was so heightened that she couldn’t even hear me at first…
That was how powerful the enemy she was facing was.
This might be the moment where I had to take the lead.
“That pink aura is from a Miracle Effect. It’s called Special Sakura Butterfly! It raises your status and gives you the ability to fly. Also…it creates energy boomerangs!”
“In other words, she’ll have more than three of them…”
“That’s insane… I have a feeling that your aunt is no longer human.”
Ah, I shouldn’t say such things…
There was no malice behind it, but it just spilled out from fear. But I could have chosen my words more carefully…
“Right? That’s why she is so mysterious…and why I look up to her. Someone my age can’t help but get excited.”
She was the age where you dreamed of being someone special who could do incredible things. And there was someone ‘real’ who was like that close by.
It was no wonder she looked up to her aunt and strived to be like her.
Though, it wasn’t like Necoco wanted to be an exact copy either.
After all, they had completely different weapons, and their combat style was also different.
Necoco wanted to catch up, but in her own style.
As an older person, I wanted to encourage her…but being older also meant there was a reality that only I could see.
A pink boomerang appeared and swayed ominously.
But the boomerang itself was not that strong.
However, having more of them meant more attacks. And it also meant she had more skills at her disposal.
In the end, I would not be able to keep up, and would get crushed…!
“Inferno Arrow Tempest!”
I had to be the first to act.
If I was forced into reacting to every attack, I would be overwhelmed by decision making. I learned that during the Charin fight…!
The giant black boomerang was thrown and began to spin rapidly!
It created a huge tornado, sucking in and nullifying all of my arrows.
Necoco had been using Invisible Catwalk to vanish in order to get close to Macoco, but the wind killed her speed, and the effect was gone.
This ambush had ended in failure…!
This time it was a slithering boomerang that was thrown.
The way that it slithered in the air certainly reminded me of a long, easter dragon, but ‘Feilong’ also had a different meaning.
This boomerang left a trail behind it, and this trail also dealt damage.
And it would continue to stay there for a fixed amount of time.
So not only did they get in the way of my attacks, but they affected Necoco’s mobility…!
A long body that ruled the sky… The Feilong!
As an adult, I could see the reality.
Necoco and I…could not win against Macoco.
