The Mightiest Hero of Black - Chapter 58
It would be foolish to fight one-on-one against the dark hero, Shion Axe.
It takes two people to fight in a coordinated manner.
We can’t let our guard down there, and we’ll do everything we can.
As they were discussing this, the spearman Meme and the swordsman Ghiad had an unexpected stroke of luck. The path that Shion chose was the hole at the very end.
This ten-path cave is like a dungeon, and even if you kill the demons, they will come back in a certain amount of time. The same goes for traps.
In the past, Ghiad and his friends have cleared the path that Shion took to reach the depths. As a result, they almost died, no joke.
That’s how strong the monsters are and how many traps there are. Therefore, the two decided to refrain from setting traps early on and to pursue him without being detected.
The plan was to start the battle when we reached the far end. There are three bosses to reach the end.
A swarm of huge bees called Giant Bees, an ironclad knight in shining armor called the Iron Knight, and a strong unit of a nasty magical monster called Magic Otter are waiting for you.
The last one was particularly troublesome, and even Ghiad and his team had a hard time with it.
When Shion’s strength was reduced, the two of them, who were fully prepared, confronted him——
“I can hear you, Ghiad! Why don’t you come out now?!”
—— there goes the perfect plan.
It was five minutes after Shion entered the innermost square that Ghiad and Meme got in.
It was a bit of a miscalculation for the two of them that Shion did not show any signs of fatigue, but they thought that he was accumulating unseen fatigue.
The problem was right after that. Shion created a pitch-black sword in his hand and attacked the two of them.
I’ll take care of it! And Ghiad took it with his greatsword – or it looked like he did, but it went through his sword and cut his flesh.
For a moment, Meme thought that Ghiad had been killed. But there were no scars on him, and he seemed to be able to move his five bodies satisfactorily. Shion missed? Such a naive thought flashed through her mind but was immediately dismissed.
Even though his limbs were fine, there was something else wrong with him. Ghiad, this time with a real sword in his hand, was dealing with Shion, who was accusing him, but he was not responding to Meme’s voice at all.
“Why are you ignoring me?! Ghiad, this is not the plan!”
No response. Meme wondered if there was no room for Shion’s calculatedly sharp movements and flawless sword-handling, but that was not the case.
Perhaps he’s deaf——
While shouting something that she doesn’t know if it’s a yell or not, Ghiad swung his greatsword down with all his might.
It’s not just an attack. It’s a technique called <Saifunga> that transmits your magic power to the big sword and temporarily increases its destructive power.
It was so powerful that it could kill even the Iron Turtle with its super-hard shell with a single blow. A human being would have no chance of surviving that.
Shion noticed this and backstepped to get some distance. Anyway, he wanted to correct his position.
He needs some time to recover from this mess.
There was a strange object wrapped around Ghiad’s wrist. It looked like a pitch-black thorn, and it extended from Shion’s hand.
“Ghiad, it’s coming!”
Convinced its dark magic, Meme tries to get his attention while feeling helpless and empty. He inadvertently speaks a word, but the sound doesn’t reach him now.
Shion’s feet left the ground, and in the blink of an eye, he was closing the distance between himself and Ghiad. It wasn’t just his own power. He had given the dark thorns an elasticity of rubbery nature.
Since Ghiad’s weight was much heavier, if Shion hold his feet on the ground firmly Ghiad will come at him full force.
It’s not like you can just sit back and watch your friends get beaten to a pulp. She moved at full force… However, a sword was thrown under her feet and she was forced to avoid it.
Shion took advantage of this opportunity and slammed into Ghiad’s stomach as if his fist had been sucked in.
The impact of the shock caused Ghiad to look upwards, and his mouth opens. There, Shion thrust a quick uppercut, and the hulking Ghiad’s body floated about a meter off the ground and toppled over. He couldn’t get any kind of cushion and fell with a crunch.
It was not Ghiad. He’s already knocked out.
Meme found herself out of breath even though she hadn’t done anything yet, and gripped the handle of her beloved spear with trembling hands.
You’ve got to be kidding me!
Before the long-awaited fight!
What are you scared of?!
She has these intense feelings.
It was just instinct from her body, that caused her to tremble, desperately wanted to avoid her opponent.
