The Villainess Is Changing Her Role To A BroCon - Chapter 28
Its body is grey, almost black. It has the form of a carnivore like a wolf, but it is covered in scales that have a metallic shine. In its mouth are three rows of teeth, like a shark.
This can’t be compared to a bear at all. Even an Asian black bear is cuter than this about-3-meter-long thing! It must be as big as a grizzly bear, the biggest species of bear!
The demon in the game, it has really appeared.
This is bad, this is bad, this is bad. This is worse than seeing it on my smartphone. Was it really this big?!
You stupid game, this is not the kind of monster to appear right in the beginning!!
The students began to scream and run away from the training ground.
That’s right! Quickly flee!
This is too scary. In my previous life, just encountering a wandering golden retriever that had escaped its leash was enough to scare me; yet now I have a carnivorous animal full of killing intent as big as a grizzly bear staring at me. It is a hundred-million times scarier than a golden retriever; it is the very incarnation of fear!
One girl trips over herself while running and falls down. In a panic, she crawls. The demon leans forward straight into her direction. It bares its three rows of pointed teeth as if smirking.
With a ‘go’, an earth wall rises up right in front of the demon’s snout, separating it from the girl. It growls in displeasure, and smashes the wall with one shake of its head. During that time, the fallen girl had gotten up and fled away.
The demon turns its head to look around. A dull anger is apparent in its all-black irises.
You must know who raised the earth wall, right?
That’s right, I can’t run away. If everyone runs away, it’ll get into the schoolyard, and even the buildings.
To be honest, I’m really scared! My legs are trembling, and my eyes are in tears. I’m that scared!
It’s just too different compared to seeing it on my phone screen. We’re now in the same space with nothing to separate us; a killing strike of this carnivorous creature might kill me. A predator and its prey facing off with no cage or ditch between them; I’ve never experienced something like this in my previous life!!
But I’ve known this beforehand, and thus I have been prepared for it.
Most of my classmates are only fifteen; they’re just kids. But I’m in my thirties, an adult. I’ll protect them!
That’s why I won’t run away!!
In her letter, Mardu-sensei previously advised me this:
‘My Lady, about what to do when encountering a demon: For those with earth attribute, I recommend summoning a golem as big as possible to intimidate the demon. It’s in demons’ nature to run away from an opponent larger than themselves, so please try it.’
I don’t think it’ll run away…but, I’ll try!
I pour magic power into the ground, and the earth responds. The earth rises like water bubbling up from the bottom of a spring, taking the form of a person’s upper half body. It’s as tall as a three-storey building.
The golem clenches its fist and swings it.
I hear a roar coming from beyond the golem. The demon leaps and smashes the golem’s fist, then lands on its head and lets out another roar. Its stare pierces through me.
I stare back. With teary eyes though!
I immediately destroy the golem. The demon falls to the ground, and lumps of earth rain down on it. But it immediately flicks off the dirt with just one shake and puts a large forefoot forward.
Will it lunge? Aaaah it’s so close, I’m scared-! But I’ll face you off-!
The demon stomps at the ground. Just then-
Clink—The air is taut with magic.
A glittering shield appears in front of the demon. The demon is about 3 meters in length and 300 or 400 kilograms in weight, but the shield drives it back, making it tumble to the ground.
The shield also collapses and drifts away in a gust of cold wind. It was made from ice.
A tall person with light blue hair appears at the entrance of the training ground.
Brother! Wahh, he came for me-!
