8th Class Mage translation finishes next month. It took me almost 3 years.Pathetic! Absolutely pathetic.. Not proud at all. There were times when I could not even afford 1 chapter...
39 Part 1
Genocide Online – Play Diary of an Evil Girl –
39 Krebskulm Liberation Front – Broken Army 2
I ran toward the town square.
…I suppose it was because it was in the middle of the town, but everyone seemed to be equipped with spears here. Not that I cared…
I cut off the head of the first soldier that blocked my path, before grabbing the next spear that thrust out towards me, pulling it back as I slashed the wielder’s throat with my sword.
I was able to cut out specific pieces now in a short amount of time. It could just be me, but I seem to have improved greatly with handling weapons?
I threw scraps of metal at their heads and throats when there was an opening, and jumped over the waterway and landed on the shoulders of the soldier on the opposite side, while stabbing his head with my shortsword. Then I jumped away and crushed the head of the next soldiers as I landed. Numerous spears would thrust towards me, but I dodged them while running on the walls of a house and throwing special explosives, that burned even in water, into their midst.
I ignored the screams as I moved away, jumping from roof to roof… Don’t worry, it wasn’t enough gunpowder to kill. In fact, wounding instead of killing was a good way to chip away at the enemy’s resources. It’s the basics of warfare(?) But more importantly, the slaves weren’t watching, so it was time to cut down the residents who got in my way and make my way to the town square.
And then I arrived…
“…Hey, I’ve been waiting for you, Ronove… Who are you?”
Hmm? This must be the bodyguard that Sage Ron was talking about. And there is someone standing next to him. He did say something about how they planned to teach us a lesson today. Bodies of decapitated people with the mark on their left cheek were scattered all around them.
“…Are you curious about them?”
“…Yes, I am.”
What was with this careless way of cutting? The most you could do was make balls out of them now. You have to cut neatly, into large blocks…
“Sorry, they’re all dead, you know? Of course, by my own hand. I wish you could have heard it too! While you aren’t Ronove, their screams…”
It wasn’t like I hated hearing people scream, but I didn’t exactly like it either. You can just listen to it when you want to. And so when he said that he wished I could have heard it, I could say nothing but ‘I don’t really feel like it now…’
“Are you angry? But these are tools and not humans. So I can do whatever I want…”
“…I think that’s enough idle chatter. Can’t you hear the chaos in the town? Hurry up and kill this girl so we can go to the landlord.”
“What!? Don’t be like that! It’s not every day you face someone like this! I need to see her face as it twists in…”
…His legs were completely open to attacks as I activated ‘Gust’ before accelerating all at once and thrusting my sword at his neck.
“Woah!? Not bad at all!”
Hmm. The talkative one had a large hatchet, while the quiet one had a halberd. And while I had used projectiles in my attack as well, they were all blocked.
“…Well, you’re still going to die.”
“So you are angry!”
I didn’t know what he was rambling about, but it was very annoying. And so I lunged towards his mouth with my blade. Just as he tried to block it with his hatchet, I knocked over his legs and unleashed a roundhouse kick into his stomach. At the same time, I tossed a gunpowder ball towards the quiet one.
Just as the explosion staggered him, I swung down towards the talkative one in a follow up attack…
…His hands were on the ground behind him as his foot came up, as if he were going to do a backflip. His toes slammed into my wrist, blocking the attack, and so I threw the shortsword up into the air instead. And then I grabbed his ankle and threw him towards the quiet one. Of course, I sent some gunpowder balls with him.
There was an explosion, and while they were hit by it, they were back on their feet in an instant. It was not very effective at all, I thought, as I caught my blade.
“…You really are a strong one.”
“That’s what I’ve been telling you…”
While they were much weaker than the knight captain, they weren’t scrubs either. …Perhaps I could experiment with some new medicine.
Once I decided this, I injected myself with a dose from a small needle. Then I roared so loud that the stone pavement seemed like it would crack. And with Inoue’s assistance, I slammed my fist into the silent one’s jaw…smashing it… The impact caused him to go flying into the air, but I barely noticed as I rotated in a half circle while using my right foot as an axis. I wanted to cut off the talkative one’s arm, but…he dodged me at the last moment, and all I got to take off was a few fingers.
