The Mightiest Hero of Black - Chapter 71
Apologies for not posting for so long… had something going on that made me completely forget I need to translate this… Thankfully, it’s over and you can expect a regular update from now on (
I hope)… Anyway, Enjoy!
Weight of the Fists
Kuna smiled happily, saying that he was able to show his master, Shion, a good point. Her friend Punini was also happy to see her success and praised her while jumping around.
‘I knew Kuna was the best. I can’t believe she killed that big one-puni’
“Punini also did a great job, didn’t he? Let’s both report to master”
Kuna and the others were ready to move forward, hoping to receive praise from their master, Shion, but the warm and fuzzy mood did not last. The reason was that something had happened that scared the hell out of them.
Right in front of Kuna and Punini, a person had instantly moved. It was Abarth, who had been lazily chatting with his girlfriend just a moment ago.
“You’re strong. Your bow skills are world-class. You’re not someone who should be holed up in the woods like this”
“I’m not at all happy with the compliment. You’re an evil person who kills the men of your village”
“What are you talking about? I’m righteous. I’m in the service of a Hero, after all. If you are in the depths of the forest like this, you may lose some common sense……. If you are against the messenger of justice, you are also evil, but what will you do?”
Punini, who was upset with their attitude of justifying their actions, gathered strength in his body and then attacked Abarth’s face.
‘I won’t let you hurt them-puni!’
“Bad guy spotted~”
At the right angle and timing of the flight, Abarth delivers a powerful kick to Punini. The slime is sent flying far away, as it weighs much less than a person.
Kuna saw it right in front of her and immediately put her hand on her bow to lift it, but she couldn’t get it ready, because Abarth was closing in on her.
After receiving a front kick to the chest, Kuna let out a short scream and rolled backward. It was a crisp move that dispelled the impression that she was slender and weak.
When Shion and Haku pincered him from both sides to prevent him from pursuing Kuna and Punini, Abarth didn’t hesitate to confront Haku.
‘Payback for both of them’
The claws of Haku swung down from his huge body with perfect speed, power, and aim, and it seemed impossible to even for an athlete to avoid them, but it did not even scratch him.
He didn’t just duck, he just disappeared.
For a moment, Haku loses sight of the enemy who has disappeared from in front of him. He immediately felt a presence from above and turned his head to see Abarth suddenly appear and straddle his back.
‘That’s not your seat, sir’
Haku fights to shake it off. Shion is also watching vigilantly for an opportunity to attack the enemy. In this situation, Abarth showed a look of impatience as expected.
“Whoa, whoa, whoa. I know you don’t like me, but I’m gonna have to ask you to stay a little longer”
A second after his statement, Abarth and Haku disappear from the scene together. Shion looks sideways at his companion, Iva. She doesn’t show any hostility, nor does she move, she just stands there.
“Teleportation magic, huh?”
When Shion says it with almost certainty, Iva’s face turns ecstatic, as if she is looking at her intended partner.
“It’s not bad… no, it’s excellent. It’s a good thing that you’re not upset about the loss of your friends……. I’m getting wet”
“I’m not going to go along with your…… tomfoolery. I’ll tell you now, Haku is strong. There’s no way he lost to some sneaky kidnappers”
The stronger the tone of voice, the more Iva became enraptured and her expression reeked of a woman’s sexuality, and Shion felt a certain creepiness.
Kuna and Punini are up in the distance, so they are safe for the moment. There was no way Haku would lose, so Shion was relieved about that.
However, the opponent is certainly quite skilled.
Teleportation abilities can be activated either by using a magic tool or by teleportation magic. The former is valuable and often difficult to transfer long distances even if the effect is activated.
It’s the same with magic, and even if you have an aptitude for it, the best you can do is a few meters to a few dozen meters at most. Even so, he was quite good at it.
Abarth, however, has completely disappeared from the scene.
They’re not within a few hundred meters of where he can see. On top of that, it involves other people. This is an ability that requires a lot of talent, and there are many people who, no matter how much training they have, are unable to transfer others.
When you think about it, it would take a genius to be able to take someone else – moreover a giant monster like Haku – far away from your sight.
Theon speaks in a quiet tone, but with some anger in his eyes.
“I always wondered. If you have that much power, why use it to make the world a worse place? How many people could you save in your lifetime if you had the ability like that man?”
“Saving insignificant people doesn’t feel like there’s any point to it”
“Then stop hurting someone else. What have the elves of your village done to you?”
“…… angry face, cool. …… this is a bad one. …… I’m going to love it”
Shion, who judged that he could no longer carry on a proper conversation with Iva, who was in a state of excitement, went into a fighting stance.
Iva sensed this and said in a huff.
“Wait, can we go somewhere together? Abarth doesn’t have the stomach for a proper fight with your friend. What I mean is, he’ll be back soon. But first, let’s find someplace calm to talk”
Theon sank into his own shadow without answering, his mouth pulled straight shut. Iva was taken aback by a technique that resembled teleportation magic. She immediately noticed Shion coming out of her shadow, and she didn’t like being approached.
“Wait, wait, wait”
“I’m sorry, but I’m not going to comply”
“Wait, please! Don’t make me… here don’t make me…”
Shion launches his left hand, which is not holding the sword.
“Don’t make me feel disillusioned!”
As if to match the straight punch that was struck, Iva also brought out her right fist. The metal ring on her finger suddenly glowed as she moved.
It increases arm strength many times over, and in its current state, if you were to hit a large tree, it would be the whole object, not the part of it, that would be destroyed.
I hate weak men.
It was because of such thoughts that she had appealed to the person she was about to fall in love with.
The results are obvious if you hit each other with the ring on. At first glance, she seems to be a slender woman who is weak in physical combat, but her muscles are naturally different from those of most people.
She has monstrous power, and it’s amplified by the ring, so it’s obvious that Iva will win.
Such a misunderstanding resulted in several broken bones in Iva’s fingers.
It’s to be expected. This is because Shion, who originally had more muscular strength, used an item that is much more powerful than the ring, an attack-type Black Robe that amplified his physical abilities.
Continuing on, Shion throw another fist and punched Iva in the face.
