The Mightiest Hero of Black - Chapter 34
The Purple Raid
Shion thinks – Crail is quite a schemer.
His aim is not just to measure the ability.
The sun is currently in the middle of the sky and the sunlight is at its strongest. This means that this is the time of the day when the Dark Users are at their weakest.
“Could you do it?”
“If we’re going to fight together, we need to know what we’re capable of, right?”
“I’m glad that Lord Shion is a man who understands. Please let me know when you’re ready”
“I’m ready whenever you are”
After Shion told him, and Crail looked at the soldiers. The raised voices of Haku and Aria reached him from behind.
“Shion can definitely win, but don’t let your guard down!”
“Got it, thanks”
Shion looked up at the Winged Goblin that had jumped up from its cage with great force. It was not a strong individual, so he could probably defeat it easily with his sword.
However, the important thing in this scene is whether or not you can use Dark Magic in broad daylight.
Shion did not draw his sword against the swooping Winged Goblin. He used the shadow of the Winged Goblin on the ground.
Two <Dark Hands> extended from the shadows and accurately caught the goblin in flight.
The goblin struggled to escape, but was unable to resist the vise and was knocked to the ground. The goblin’s neck was twisted off with both hands, and it died in an instant.
“Don’t come near me, you filthy demon!”
Crail kicked off the head of a goblin that had rolled over. Although he didn’t aim for it, the goal was scored at the entrance of the cage.
“…… No, I wasn’t aiming for that though…”
“Haha, nice shot!”
“Like I said, I didn’t…. Haaa. Well, I’m not sure what to make of it, but I’m surprised that it’s more powerful than I expected. Even though it’s broad daylight now. I’m sure you’ll become a user that will eventually come close to the Hero Axe”
“I don’t know about that though…. If you’re done confirming our abilities, we’ll go”
“Yes, thank you for participating”
He has definitely won the trust of the soldiers with this battle. Shion left the courtyard with his friends, relieved.
On the way home, Aria and Haku’s conversation was still about Crail.
“He’s strong, right? His skill with the bow is amazing”
‘That’s right. But it’s a little strange that he’s so strong and has 30 companions, isn’t it?’
Shion agreed with him on that. He must have some kind of role to play.
But there was no point in thinking about it now. Back at the inn, Shion decided to take a nap until nightfall.
‘Why don’t you two sleep with my side as your backrest?’
“I like that. I’ll borrow it then”
They sat down on cushions on the floor and both rested their backs on Haku’s body. The feel of the fur and soft skin felt good, and they fell asleep comfortably.
It was about eight o’clock in the evening.
The entire city of Rotra is already enveloped in darkness. Today, as usual, there is an eerie miasma in the air.
When Shion and the others arrived at the entrance of the city, the soldiers and Crail’s group were already waiting for them.
“We’ve been waiting for you. We’ll be traveling in a carriage. I’ve prepared some for Mr. Shion and Ms. Aria…”
“We’re gonna ride with Haku”
“Got it. We will now begin the battle to find the cause of the miasma and restore peace to Rotra. Gentlemen, pledge to win!”
Crail takes the lead and raises his sword high in the air.
In response, the soldiers did the same. Of course, Shion and Aria did the same.
This kind of action is surprisingly important to boost morale.
With a group of more than sixty people, the group departed from Rotra.
It’s a full moon tonight and the moonlight is strong.
In addition, thanks to the soldiers and Crail’s companions carrying torches, the monsters would not have a blind spot.
In the hour or so since we left, we hadn’t been attacked by a single demon.
“However, fate is a strange thing, isn’t it? I’m so lucky to be able to work with a Hero from another country”
In his spare time, Crail pulls his horse over and talks to Aria.
“I don’t know if it’s fate or not, but let’s do a good work. …… Hey, I wonder what’s down the road?”
“There is a ruin in our current path. If the enemy is hiding, it would be there. By the way, Aria is really beautiful. What do you think, why don’t you team up with me and work together after tomorrow?”
“I’m sorry, but I have my heart set on someone. And……. guys like you are not my type at all”
Crail grumbled lowly at the harsh words. Aria is not sure what to say, but she’s going to say it.
“He has conviction, dark hair, strong, and yet he is kinder than anyone else. That’s the kind of person I love. I don’t like people like you who go around with a bunch of friends and do clever tests”
‘You’re right, it’s too explosive!’
Unable to see Crail in a groggy state, Shion and the others intervene to stop her.
“Oh, was I a little out of line? Gomenasabase~” (T/N: Imagine Alice from Shokugeki no Souma)
Aria is the type of person who is very outspoken with the opposite sex. She has hurt a lot of men.
“Th…The person you liked must be happy…”
As Crail spoke with a wry smile, soldiers rushed in from the front.
“Master Crail, there’s a monster coming from up ahead!”
“Is it a stray? Or is it……”
“It’s an ogre! And it’s a purple one”
The soldiers spoke of it as if it were bad news, but Crail and Shion decided that it was rather good news. This is because we have the <Holy Fresh Water> from Aria.
If there was a chance to turn him back into a human being, it would be a good thing – but he was wrong.
The content of the loud voice from the soldier-in-chief in front of us was nothing but bad news.
“Everyone, brace yourselves. The number of purple ogres is —- nine!”
As someone would expect, that is a really unexpected situation.
