The Villainess That Was Once A VRMMO player - Chapter 42.3
T/L: We have mistakenly skipped chapter 42.2 before. We have fixed it now. Sorry for the issue.
Nicholas asked me a question that ordinary young ladies wouldn’t know the answer to, so I just tilted my head to fool him for now, and he became resigned because I was usually a quiet person.
“Knights, don’t let them get too close to His Highness!”
Ah, the escort knights moved forward. I wanted to use [Frenzy Upset], which had a preemptive disorientation effect, in a group fight, but I couldn’t use it in a melee because of the risk of misfiring.
The speed of the projectiles was so slow, that if someone moved, they would not be able to hit.
But well, even though I said I had grown up, I was unable to cast magic as fast as [Witch], so I should stay in the back, like in group fights in my VRMMO days.
I applied [Sanctuary], which increases physical and magical defense, to all our allies. There were 14 of us in total, so it was a bit tough with the current Carol.
This magic of the 6th class works visibly, so the rude knight who came to rescue me, surrounded by multiple enemies, looked at me with a surprised expression on his face.
Look, behind you, don’t look away. There were many opponents.
Even with a threefold difference in numbers, the knights who dedicated their swords to Camille-sama, who was in a delicate position, were more than evenly matched; perhaps their loyalty was different, which boosted their strength.
Camille-sama said as he came running back to me, seeing that there was no chance of losing, but when he saw me nodding, he gave me a dumbfounded look.
“You’re the great one. What’s with all this defensive sorcery? I did prepare a good amount of force, but I didn’t think it would be such an easy battle.”
I heard that some court mages class could use the magic of the 6th class and above? Maybe they were keeping them a secret?
But, more importantly, half of the Dark Knights were killed, giving us more leeway on the battlefield. It was probably difficult for them to recover so much from the brink of destruction, but they were now reduced again.
“Mi, it’s a Minotaur!!!”
Three Minotaurs suddenly rushed out of the forest and smacked several dark knights and one of the escort knights.
Huh? Why would there be Minotaurs in such a place? Those were demons that didn’t go out of caves and dungeons.
That’s not good. Me and Uncle Bert had easily defeated it, so they might look weak, but for a normal knight, one or two Minotaurs would be more than enough for a group, but three would be too much.
Moreover, something seemed strange. It was as if they had been drugged by [Frenzy].
When I looked around to see if I could find the cause of the problem, I saw something like a shadow in the distance. Could that be a person who wanted to kill the Mino-tan?
I realized that one of the Mino-tans was closing in on me, and just as the club was about to swing down, Camille-sama jumped out of its way, carrying me in his arms to dodge it.
Camille-sama yelped in agony, and then another Mino-tan closed in on him.
Neither Nicholas nor the escort knights have noticed us, having been attacked by the other two.
I didn’t think…they would go so far. Did they want to kill us that badly?
“Setup [Witch Dress]”
Instantly, my crimson dress enveloped me, and as I became an adult, I thrust my Zanbatou head-on and sliced Mino-tan’s head in half right above me.
…are they prepared for this?
