Pioneering the Apocalyptic World - Chapter 25
Chapter 19: Decisive Battle : Second
My attack didn’t feel blocked by the miasma, and I felt like I stabbed it quite easily.
On top of that, even though Regulus’s attacks were crushing more and more of its parts, until now it didn’t move at all, but for the first time since fight started the Chimera let out a scream containing pain.
Eh, maybe the holy nectar water applied to the spear worked? But I did also applied it in Regulus and Lieze’s weapons too?
It is related to any of my skills? Or is just because I’m a miko? Ahh I want to check it!
Uru’s sharp warning made my head, which was immersed in a gamer thought, return to reality in an instant, and I threw myself to the ground.
At that moment, some kind of bone growing on the Chimera’s shoulder passed by where my head was.
While tolling over with a cold sweat over what happened in the nick of time, I turned my eyes to the front of the chimera――and the goat head was looking at me.
Chills runned through my whole body.
“I won’t let you lay your hands on Rion!”
Uru jumped and slammed the goat’s head to the ground and I was finally able to escape from the gaze, and I got up as if I was repelled by the ground.
“I won’t let you touch her!”
The parts growing from the torso moved quickly, trying to capture me, but they were crushed and stopped by Regulus’s fist.
That’s how I managed to get away from the Chimera without getting hurt.
With Uru holding the head in place, Regulus and Lieze also pulled back in the same way.
“Hey, what just happened?”
“Hmmm…both of you, can you try throwing this?”
“? Is that… Holy water?”
Putting off answering Regulus’ question, I took out the holy water from the item box and handed it over to them.
The two did as I said, even with question marks floating around their heads.
The bottle of holy water hits the Chimera’s rear without missing its aim and the contents rain down on it, but nothing happens.
“… it’s not working, is it?”
“It looks like it.”
After confirming the result, I try throwing it with my own hands.
Ahh… I knew it.
Unlike the game era, it seems that a positive correction are applied to all holy attribute tools and the skills possessed by the user(player).
I wonder if this also is part of the ‘restrictions that were removed’ when I came to Asteria.
Damn, me who is the worst at fighting between all of us have to do my best, what a hard mode――
“Rion! It’s fine to attack it, but you should think a little more about the surroundings!
Uru desperately suppressed the Chimera, who had begun to rampage again. No matter how much Uru is strong, their body size is too different, so doesn’t seem to be easy job to her.
Gununu… It’s common in MMO games, the so-called hate management has become necessary, but since I was mostly playing solo in the latter half of the game, my senses have completely rusted…!
“Regulus! Liese! Just like before, keep attacking it from behind! Rion, come behind me!”
Even though Uru has been alone fighting the front of it for a while, there are only a few small scratches and almost no injuries. She just can’t get a decisive hit, and probably doesn’t have to worry about defense.
Attacking from the shadows of the impregnable Uru certainly raises my level of safety…. But the fact that I’m being protected by her small back gave me a slight tingle in my chest.
“Rion, don’t worry about it too much. I’m doing this because I can do it.”
“… that’s right, thank you.”
I wonder if my emotions show on my face that much…
I hid in Uru’s shadow for a while and threw Holy Water, but I gave up throwing because the chimera was completely wary of it, it knocked down almost all the holy water bottles that I throwed at it.
Even if I try to find an opening and stick out my spear on it, because there are eyes in various parts of its body, it will be detected in advance and the attack will be blocked.
Isn’t there something I can do to distract it?……I had a flash of inspiration, so let’s try it.
“Uru, at the next timing, back down a lot!”
“Hmm? I understand.”
After doing a big roundhouse kick and mowing down some parts, Uru took a distance as she was told.
And I instantly pulled out the “The thing” that I had moved from the item box to the QA box.
“Come out! Stone block barrier!”
Dodon! 8 stone blocks with a side of 50 centimeters were lined up vertically and horizontally, a thing that could be called a stone wall appeared in front of the Chimera. It can’t be seeen from Chimera position, but this side is partly made in a staircase form so that I can climb it.
The Chimera started to attack the stone with a roar that sounds somewhat confused. A simple stone doesn’t have much durability, but as expected, it can’t be destroyed in one blow or two…Awawawa It looks like will be destroyed, I need to hurry up!
“Uru, when I reach the top, attack while smashing through it!”
“Fuhaha, this is the first time I’ve seen this kind of blinding!”
I ran up the stone stairs, leaving Uru behind me, who seemed somewhat amused.
Bagon! ! The stone blocks were broken grandly, and Uru launches off in rush while slipping between the stone block fragments.
The Chimera, which was caught in the suprise attack, because the number of parts used for defense was decreased, take the hit directly and had its LP reduced massively.
However, this is not the end.
I who jumped from a high place… Pierced and slashed it with a spear from above adding up the power of gravitational acceleration to the attack!
“Here, eat this too!”
The spear’s cutting edge was short, so the wound wasn’t deep, but as a follow-up attack, I directly poured a heap of holy water into Its body.
At that moment, the chimera raged violently with an unprecedented scream, and I who was on its back was thrown out.
“Hieeee! ……Wait, what?”
“Really… I told you could attack it, but you should think a little more.”
It seems that Uru caught me while my head was spinning. Oh, sorry to bother you…
I asked she to gently lower me to the ground and I checked the condition of the chimera.
“But thanks to that, it’s about time for him to… Mu, what!?”
Gijaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! ! !
A death scream… or so I thought, but it wasn’t.
The parts clinging to its body turned into a black mist and the Chimera’s body began to shrink.
But in exchange for them…
“The miasma is getting thicker!?”
As if it was sacrificing its parts, in return of his body shrinking away, a black haze――the miasma was visibly increasing rapidly.
“Guaaaa! Its hurts!!!”
The screams of the two who were fighting hard with the snake tail resounded around.
Numerous burn-like scars were carved all over their body, they were attacked?… Or rather, that was miasma slip damage!?
“Even though it hasn’t been ten minutes yet…… no way, the effect was peeled off by the thickening of the miasma!? Both of you, hurry up and leave the area and use the Holy Mist—Gufu.”
“Rion!? You too have to go away for the moment――Guha!”
A large amount of miasma fell on us as well, and the pain that burned our whole body made us crouch down without being able to stand.
Uru hurriedly tried to grab me, but… the miasma was ejected like a bullet, the sudden attack prevented her from defending and was sent flying away.
“Gu, ah, ahh… I have to, leave… ahh, ah, ahh!?”
The remaining serpent tail wriggled its body and bited my leg, with the intention of block my escape.
Ahh, it hurts, it hurts, it hurts. T-that’s right, potion, I have to use it…
Since it is stored in the QA box, it can be used immediately, but it seems that the miasma damage will continue and the pain will make me lose my consciousness. If that happens, it will be my end.
While trying to keep my consciousness from fading, I desperately attacked the snake that was grabbing my feet with my spear――
And a scent of flowers was scattered softly.
