The Mightiest Hero of Black - Chapter 38
Shion and the others stepped into a plaza with a plaque [Speech Plaza].
The three demons and one giant frog were in a space with plenty of room for a thousand people to gather. Shion paid attention to the demons first.
“So that’s what caused the miasma?”
This toad is over five meters long and has two devilish horns. It opens its large mouth and spits out the source of the miasma. Crail said:
“I think it was the Ogre Frog ……. I heard about such a monster in the Demon Continent a long time ago. I didn’t know that it had the power to turn people into ogres”
“That’s a lot of wind from behind the monster”
“Yeah, I think that’s how they control the flow”
One of the Demons is blowing the wind upward from behind the monster. It is definitely a user of wind magic.
The demon race resembles humans, but all three have wings, black eyes, and red irises.
Just as there are many types of humans humans, beasts, and elves, there are many different types of demons.
This time, the three are called the <Flying Demons>.
The demon race basically has an amount of magic power that is incomparable to that of humans and is said to be ten times greater.
In addition to their high physical ability, they possess a large number of magical tools. This is why humans avoid confronting Demons on their own unless they are extremely skilled.
“You’ve finally arrived. I’ve been waiting for you, o brave band of heroes!”
The gray-haired demoness smiles wryly. Crail speaks, looking a little miffed.
“You say that as if you knew we were coming”
“I heard that the Hero had returned to Rotra. I figured he’d be here today or tomorrow. I went out of my way to get rid of the small fry monsters, you know?”
“You’re the one who sent the purple ogre, aren’t you?”
“I mean, an ogre or a skeleton knight is just prep work for you guys, right? Anyway, you’re the Hero of Weapons, Crail, right?”
“Let’s also get the name of the one who asks, shall we?”
“Argyz, the man closest to the Tenth General now”
Seeing Argyz said it with such confidence made Crail’s eyes wide-open.
The Ten Demon Generals are the leaders of the Demon Lord’s Army, and they have the second most fighting power after the Demon Lord.
Many times, in the past, Heroes have been killed by demons, but most of them were defeated by these Ten Demon Generals.
“Brother, don’t lie to them. The closest one is me, right? This mission wouldn’t be possible if it wasn’t for me who creates the wind~”
“Hihihi, this is why I hate you older brothers. The closest one is me. Ten Demon Generals also need intelligence, you know?”
From their conversation, Shion could tell that they were three brothers.
But it doesn’t matter, and Shion extends his gaze toward the Ogre Frog. The first thing to do is to take care of that thing that makes beastmen crazy.
The chief soldier, Darga, had the same idea and spoke in a whisper so that only Shion and Crail could hear.
“I will attack the Demons. While we’re at it…”
“Then I and Mr. Shion will do it all at once”
It only took a few seconds, but they were able to come up with a plan to defuse the situation.
Darga steps forward and provokes the Demons.
“Argyz, you say? Your evil deeds are beyond my eyes. You will pay for it with your death here!”
Darga raised his sword and charged with a yell.
The moment the demons turned their attention to Darga, Shion and Crail ran to finish off the Ogre Frog.
“I will attack its left side”
“Then, I’ll take the right”
They split off to the left and right to inflict fatal wounds on the Ogre Frogs. With that in mind, Shion and the others each changed direction to ––
“What the hell? Crail, look out!”
Shion changes direction and hits Crail, blowing him away.
The reason was that a square of black space was created in front of Crail, enough to swallow a person.
It was the Gate of Darkness, and it began to move at high speed, swallowing Shion’s entire body.
“Hihihi, I wanted to capture Crail, but the obstacle got captured instead, huh?”
It was the third Demon, the youngest, who invoked the magic.
“You bastard, where did you send Mr. Shion!?”
“It’s a dark space. It’s a really dark space where no light can reach, and I’m sure my vicious beast is messing with him right now!”
“Urgh… a Dark User Demon….”
A further scream reaches Crail’s ears as his expression clouds over. Darga who had rushed forward was being tormented by the Wind User Demon.
The wind whipped up from under his feet like a tornado, launching Darga into the sky. Unlike the demon tribe, he had no wings, so he fell to the ground and was unable to move.
Argyz let out a sigh as if he was out of sync.
“What the hell? I thought I finally gonna be able to play, but was that it guys?”
“Hihihi, Humans are just like this. Just watch out for Crail and you’ll be fine”
“That’s true, but… hm? Oi, Talb, I don’t see the dead guy from before”
“…Hmmm, you’re right. That’s weird… I have a strict order to make a lump of meat once I kill it”
As Talb, the third Demon, trying to find out how there’s a change in the Dark Gate. Shion emerges from there, unscathed.
“Oh? That’s the man that you should be killed… is alive, Why’s that?”
He expected to see a dead body to be thrown out from the gate. Instead, Shion walked out from it.
Without any scratch.
“Th…What happened to my beasts?”
“Oh? Do you mean this guy? You’re the owner?”
Shion threw the object in his left hand in front of Talb. It was the head of a beast, like a lion.
“My….. My beaaaaasstttt!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
Talb’s confusion about the situation is already at its peak, but it got intensified. Shion, who should be inside his field of vision, suddenly disappeared.
“H..Huh? That man, where did he…?”
“Behind you, Talb!!”
At the sound of the Wind User’s voice, Talb turned around impatiently. When his eyes met Shion’s as he emerged from the darkness, Talb was overcome by an unprecedented sense of fear.
“Y… You…. Don’t tell me…. A… He… A…”
Hero Axe, is the words Talb was going to say, but his lips were too afraid to move properly. His eyes darted up and down, wondering if he should use his wings to flee upward or dive into the darkness to escape downward.
“You think I’ll let you go?”
It was the number of slashes he had made in just a moment.
Talb’s body was slashed down to death without being allowed to think any thoughts.
The literal translation is “Black and White Humans” which I find inappropriate, so I changed it. Hope you guys don’t mind
