The Mightiest Hero of Black - Chapter 21
Hero of Divine Eye
The Organ Arena is a circularly shaped public facility that often shows the battle between captured monsters and humans as entertainment.
Shion and Haku stand silently in front of the entrance to the arena.
When Shion examined the city with Magic Power Sense magic that can be used only at night, there were several powerful magical reactions here.
The entrance is locked and they made it impossible for anyone who wants to enter.
“There are five people inside. One of them has the most powerful magic power in this city, but the other four is also considerably strong even though they’re inferior to him”
‘An ambush, I think’
“Hmm, but I don’t have any feeling of being watched though. How did they know?”
‘Whatever it is, you’re going in, right?’
“Yep, I’m relying on you”
With Haku’s tough legs, he climbs vertically up the walls of the building at once and lands on the upper row of the audience seat. Of course, there were no people there, and the five suspicious people seemed to have stayed in the battle arena.
While moving up there, Haku says:
‘There’s no other presence here’
“I wonder if they’re confident they can win without using any clever tricks”
Standing in front of the five, Shion immediately realized who is the Hero of Divine Eye. He is a man of about 20 or so with three white eyes and long hair tied behind him.
He put his sword on his waist, and his aura overflowed from his body.
“I’ve been waiting for you, Dark Hero, Axe! Or should I say, former hero?”
He’s been watching Shion frequently, so he knows that Shion was betrayed. Shion, who stayed calm, asked the hero’s name.
“What’s your name?”
“It’s Randyll. At the very least, remember my name. Because this is my town, you know?”
“My town, huh? You’re much more arrogant than I imagine”
“You’re the one who came to the place where I’m having fun being a hero, you know?”
“One of the bandits who attacked Karoo village had special eye powers”
“He’s not a good man, but he had a rare magic tool, so I exchanged it for it”
Shion’s clenched fist hardens to Randyll, who speaks without any trace of guilt. A hero who acts to fulfill his selfishness is not so rare.
The attribute heroes which Shion a member of are probably the best examples of that. The one who really wishes to subjugate the Demon King and world peace is only a mere fraction of the minority.
A Hero is able to gain a large amount of money from lending his name to merchants or others who wishes to do business with them while being praised around society as Hero.
“If you go on an expedition once in a while, trimming the Demon King’s army while at it, you’re a hero, huh. What a cool hero you are”
“Axe senpai~, I respect you a lot, you know? My eye awakened when I was 20 years old, and I was able to see all over the world. As a result, I was convinced that this world was rotten! There’s no value! You think so, too, don’t you?”
“I’ve seen a lot of heroes, but no one is more serious than you. Why don’t you live a little more dexterously?”
“I’d rather die than to lend a hand to a member of <<Chains of Death God>> like you. Enough is enough”
Pulling out his Black Sword, Shion concludes that the conversation is over.
Randyll sighs after seeing this, and then pulls out the rapier and prepares. All 4 of his Servants pulls out a cane and stand ready.
“Be careful Haku, your companies there might have mastered their skills”
‘Gotcha, I can be at ease, at least’
“Shion senpai~, I have foresighted this event, and so I know all of your movements. And the conclusion of this fight too. Last chance, join me”
“If you have foresighted it all, then you should know already. I won’t join you even if I die”
“As I thought”
When Randyll gave them a chin, 2 Servants swing their cane at the same time. Those cane are a powerful magic tool that can cause a huge explosions with just a swing.
They’re aiming for Shion. Haku immediately put himself in front of Shion to defend him. He has transformed from a normal White Fox to Red Fox with fire all over his body.
The Red Fox type is a Fire Attribute type of transformation, which can attack with fire and is very resistant to fire and explosions.
‘Are you okay?’
“Yep, thanks. Let’s crush them all, one at a time”
While hiding behind Haku, Shion melts into the shadows and moves behind the Servants. But the Servants didn’t respond at all, so he tries to cut them down immediately, but he can’t.
Because there’s a rapier thrust aiming for his side. It was Randyll, smiling with his eyes shining golden. Shion realized that he’s using it.
“I can see 10 seconds into the future. I’ll be troubled if you compare me with a small fry”
While jumping backward, Shion use. However, Randyll had already escaped from the attack range when it was activated.
“Blow that Fox again”
Following Randyll’s instructions, the two servants swing their canes again. And Randyll looks like he’s preparing another magic.
Shion had a bad feeling about this so he throws, a magic that can absorb other magic, at Haku’s direction.
His actions were right.
In a series of explosions, Randyll fired a magic projectile called into Haku.
If Haku stays on his Flame type transformation the ice attack from Randyll will pierce through, and if he chooses to change his type to Water or Ice, the explosion will incapacitate him. By attacking with 2 elements at once, they certainly aim to cut down his strength.
However, they won’t be able to achieve that. Because Shion’s absorbed the ice spear and bounced it back to the user.
“Hmph! I already knew this wasn’t going to be easy!”
As he moves to avoid the ice spear, Randyll begins to instruct his servants how many seconds later they should shoot magic into where.
They move and attack according to Randyll’s readings, so their attacks can be executed with precision. Shion rise, and hop onto Haku’s back, decided that they should act together.
“Attack them two seconds later with explosion cane, three seconds later, with a thunder cane over there”
The remaining 2 servants threw thunder element magic and Randyll will attack like before with ice magic, so even Shion and Haku can’t absorb everything.
‘I’ll start avoiding it’
Haku transforms into Green Fox, speeding up his movements by doing so. Combined with Shion’s , fatal wounds can be avoided, but it’s obvious that they will eventually be taken down.
“Can you use a wide-range thunder attack? If possible, the one that can be transmitted through the ground”
‘Well, It’s possible’
“When I gave the signal, use it. Let’s end this match with overwhelming power”
Originally, he can put out multiple spheres, but now one is the limit, so if he separates it from himself, his defense will drop. Still, he took the risk and throw a black sphere into the sky.
“F̲u̲c̲k̲, shit! Oi, all of you! In two seconds, jump as high as you can!”
“Shut the f̲u̲c̲k̲ up, and JUMP!”
Randyll yells and jumps on the spot as his followers follow in bewilderment.
‘HERE WE GO!!!’
When Haku instantly transforms into a Yellow Fox, Shion kicks the ground and escapes into the air. As soon as Haku’s body charged, a bolt of lightning strikes the ground spreading in all directions.
It’s an unavoidable attack if you’re on the ground. However, since Randyll and his servants already jumped, the damage is not that significant.
“This one’s the real deal, though”
After Haku, it’s Shion’s turn now. He fired the lightning that was sucked into the sphere a while back, one after another. A barrage of thunder pours down like heavy rain, the Servants scream as they fall to the ground.
Only Randyll escaped the lightning strike thanks to his positioning, but at the same time as he lands, he was electrocuted and his movement slowed momentarily. Not missing the opportunity, Shion swam through the darkness and made a rapid approach.
“You should have brought lightning-resistant accessories”
“Shut the f̲u̲c̲k̲ up!!!”
The swords and rapiers of the heroes collide with each other many times, and the metallic sound continues to echo in the darkness.
Randyll’s rapier skill can be said to be advanced, as he is a hero. In addition, he’s using a different power from his eyes.
The effect of the Jade Pupil on enemies is reducing one’s physical abilities. As long as it is within the user’s field of vision, the subject will inevitably lose muscle strength and reflexes to varying degrees.
…that should be the case, but Randyll is anxious because it seems like his ability doesn’t affect Shion.
“Why is it my rapier doesn’t work on him? Is that what you think?”
“Huh, very funny”
“There’s nothing wrong though. I was out there fighting for my life while you were staying inside this town like a Hikikomori, fighting using your Servants. The accumulation of small actions appears on the sword arm. That’s a distance that can’t be erased only by Divine Eye”
“Then, I should just change it here!”
Randyll changed his eye and decided to rely on his future vision, but at this moment Shion has already convinced of victory.
“You can see my movements up to 10 seconds ahead. But have you forgotten? I’m not alone”
Randyll, who was bitten by a strong body from the side, his blind spot, got thrown away to the ground.
What awaits ahead is Shion, who was ahead of him by using and clenched his fist.
“I agree that this world is rotten. But I don’t think that there’s no value in it. Because there’s something important to me in this world”
Shion’s fist burns with emotions, he crushed Randyll’s bones and blew him away. Randyll’s eyes twitch and stopped and immediately losing consciousness when he finally stopped bouncing down many times.
Shion raised his palm while Haku raised one of his front leg, and together they made the sound of victory in the dark night.
