The Mightiest Hero of Black - Chapter 57
Aria can use several types of swords, but the one she usually carries is a rapier. The length of the blade is about a meter, which is standard, but it weighs twice as much as a normal sword, which weighs 1 to 1.5 kilograms.
This is because it is a gem of a product that has been made with special materials and processing to increase its durability and attack power.
The metal plate that protects the back of the hand is also solid.
A normal woman could never wield it, but she has been trained to handle it with ease.
She pointed her sword at the two breeding goblins who jumped at her, making strange noises. Rather than jumping at her, it would be more accurate to say that they tried to hug her. The goblin’s long tongue lolled out and tried to lick her face.
“You’ve got to be kidding me!”
Instead of cutting them, she hit them with the metal that protects her hand.
After dropping one of them to the ground, she turned her hand and stabbed the other one. It was in the heart, so the first one was successfully taken care of.
The one who got hit tried to grab Aria’s ankle while still on the ground, which she swiftly kicked as hard as she could.
When the other breeding goblins saw Aria’s movements, they sensed that she was a dangerous opponent and began to leak yellow bodily fluids from their bodies.
They coat their body with the slippery liquid that flows from their earholes, nostrils, and mouth.
It has oil-like properties that reduce damage from blows and make the body slippery and difficult to grab.
It also has a reduction effect against slashes.
“Ugh… this is taking a toll on my psychology”
As if he was waiting for Aria to mutter something, Chap came up from behind to negotiate.
“We have one request. I want Aria the Hero to leave this cave. However, I don’t believe in verbal promises, so I want you to give me the ring as proof”
“You’ve got to keep your jokes to yourself!”
“Don’t be so angry. When the Great Sword of Annihilation reaches the witch, I will return the ring later. It’s for your own good. I’ve set traps on the way back. Give me the ring and I’ll disarm it”
Aria does not believe the words of people who like to use such cowardly tricks. She reached out and created a body double of water right next to her. Even though it was made of water, it looked just as good as the real thing.
It is a combination of water magic and illusion magic. It is a technique that Aria, who has some aptitude for illusion, has created over several years.
“Get their attention”
The body double looked at the goblin. In the blink of an eye, he was caught and pushed down, but the real thing took action to destroy the barrier instead of that one.
Simply and incessantly thrust into the barrier.
With the fifth thrust, the barrier was destroyed and the obstacle in the way disappeared.
“Cheap magic tools aren’t going to stop me”
“Hrmm, as expected of the Hero. But…!!”
Chap tossed a ball, which was wrapped around the outside with what looked like a bandage. It was a bomb.
Aria releases a sphere of water and traps it in the water. It is the type that does not work when wet, so it will not cause an explosion.
The ice pillar pierced Chap’s hand as he tried to retrieve something from another space, preventing him from doing so.
“You’ve spent your whole life being short-sighted, haven’t you? Your movements and judgment are sluggish”
“Th… Then how about this!”
“I told you it was too late”
Aria didn’t know what Chap was going to do. But she didn’t need to know. Because the rapier poked his thigh.
Aria grabbed his arm and dislodged his shoulder as he fell even lower to his knees from the pain. Both of them, of course.
If she left even one hand behind, there was a chance that the tool would be used again for storage magic.
Ignoring the pathetic scream of “HIIIIIIIIIEEEEKKK“, she checks the body double.
“Wait, what are you doing——?”
It was not the body double, but the real person itself that was screaming. It had become something terrible. It was pushed down, liquid was poured on it, and she got chills just imagining that it was directed at a real person.
“Now I’m mad”
As the breeding goblins swarmed around the body double, a mass of water formed above their heads. More and more water gathered until it formed a large rectangle.
Only one of the goblins finally noticed something was wrong, but it was already too late. A large amount of water fell from above and poured out on all the goblins.
There was no way she was going to just play with water against a monster.
The reason the goblins were screaming and writhing in agony was that the water was a powerful acid that dissolved their flesh.
The goblins were wiped out in a few tens of seconds because of the level of intensity that affected their skin, organs, and even their bones.
“Ugh, this is the worst. It’s only the first one and I’ve spent quite a bit of magic power”
After her plan to save magic power was ruined, Aria turned her anger on Chap.
“You’re gonna have to take responsibility”
“Wait, Hero. I admit that I lost. ……”
“I know that when I see it, don’t I? Just give me an item that restores magic power. I also need something to heal the wound on your thigh. It’s only a light poke, so I’m sure you can handle it for a time being”
“I can’t get it out because my shoulder hurts. ……”
“Oh, God, such a troublesome man”
She forces his shoulders into place with a crunch, and Chap is able to move, though it hurts. The rapier was held to his neck, and he took out what he was told.
As a countermeasure from toxin, he drank it first, and when she saw that it was okay, Aria drank the magic recovery potion.
He used the recovery medicine on himself. It’s not perfect, but he’s able to walk slowly.
Chap tries to get up, but …… Aria grabs his arm again and dislodges his shoulder again.
“Why? If I let your arm be, you might take out something savage again. Come on, you can walk, you can be my shield”
“You’re so rough with people. ……”
Chap regretted that he had made the mistake of assuming that she was just like any other teenage girl.
