First Outer World Story Series: The Black Mist that Devours - Chapter 77
Translator: MadHatter Editor: MadHatter
Beware of slight grotesqueness in this chapter.
At the same time and in a different place where Ryo was attacked by a man with “Spiritual Sword”.
Except for Ryo, all the members of the ≪Mercenary of the Mist≫ were having their meal together. While the food at this general bar may not taste great, the portions were ample, so everyone was content.
Ryo was not here since, after receiving payment for the job, there would be no more food left if she arrived here, which was typically the case, so she would have her meal somewhere else before returning.
And then three hooded people came into the restaurant. Although the mercenaries around us were still bustling about as before, I sensed a disturbing presence from the trio, so after giving Mugi, Houki, and Une a look, I left my seat and attempted to exit the bar as if passing by the three of them.
As I passed by them, my body was torn in two at the waist, and I saw a spear aimed at Houki and≪Mudbolt≫ directed at Mugi.
Une carried both of my bodies and darted out of the bar. Following her was a single human being armed with an axe. It was the same man who severed me that rushed out of the bar.
From inside the store, raging screams can be heard as if a fight had erupted between all of the mercenaries and the men who assaulted them.
“Ka hi… hi hi hi hi hi hi…”
The face of the man who bisected me was distinctly abnormal. It was as if something had taken over him.
Une had aligned the severed surfaces of my body, and I was forcibly attaching them together using ≪Self-Regeneration (Medium)≫ as I was observing this. The anguish was still present, but because Une was not skilled in direct combat, it was up to me to fight on my own.
“Hi ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!! ≪Heavy Blow Axe≫!”
The guy charged in and swung his axe down aggressively.
From my right arm, I drew out a bone axe with ≪Bio Weapon Creation・ Axe≫, then reinforced my own body with ≪Strength Enhancement≫ and tried to intercept it the center of the axe, yet my axe was smashed in one blow and I was slashed from my left shoulder to my hip by the man’s axe in one fell swoop.
It was deathly agonizing, and under normal circumstances, this would certainly be a fatal wound. But I cannot collapse. I activated ≪Self-Regeneration (Medium)≫ once more, and re-attached my body before it became detached. Thanks to this skill, there was no bleeding so all was well.
The man’s momentum came to a halt, perhaps startled by my response, who undoubtedly should have fallen yet didn’t.
Here’s my opportunity.
“Izumi! ≪Agility Enhancement≫!”
With Une’s support, my agility was fortified.
Then I raised both of my arms wide above my head and produced an even more massive and thicker axe with ≪Bio Weapon Creation・Axe≫ and struck it down vigorously, capitalizing on my augmented strength and agility.
“Phew. As expected of Izumi’s monstrous strength.”
I can faintly hear Une’s mutterings.
However, as soon as the axe crushed the man and crashed to the ground, there was a booming noise, followed by a massive tremor and blast, as well as a large plume of dust and smoke.
Furthermore, after the cloud of dust settled, there were objets d’art that I didn’t have a grasp of, because what was once a human being had now splattered brilliant red paint all over the area, and the earth had caved in a bit with fissures running all around it.
And then the battle at the bar seemed to be over with everyone coming out.
Everybody was slightly shocked by the crater.
“Did you do this, Izumi?”
“What incredible power… I’m surprised it’s not an offensive skill.”
“You have… overdone it…”
I approached Mugi and the others, asking them what was transpiring inside the bar, and it appeared that the two remaining individuals were also slain by everyone else.
I can see what looked like vigilante corps approaching us.
“Miss Mugi and Izumi should go to Ma’am Ryo’s place. Please explain the situation to her.”
For some reason, one of the mercenaries made that remark while averting their eyes to the side, so I followed Mugi to Ryo’s place.
