Chapter 44 – First Part Cleared (Part three)
The vibe emitted by Ronove took a sudden change… I feel like I have seen this somewhere before…
“<Body Enhancement – Storm Sea Dragon>”
To prevent the same thing from happening again, I attacked with iron balls and poisonous needles with the <Boulder Throw> skills, <Meteor> and <Comet>, but he was somehow able to dodge them all, even if barely.
“<Physical Revitalization – Meat Slicing and Bone Fracturing>”
In that case, I’ll get close up and wield the <Quadruple Flaming Slash>, but I was counter-attacked with the same skill… Could it be that? I couldn’t harm him during the reinforcement process?
“<High Enchantment – Sacred Ocean>”
Anything beyond this would be too dangerous. A clergyman, not the captain of knights, might be able to get through him; a poison attack strategy is futile.
The iron balls were set up with explosives, and I threw it with all my strength using the rock-bombarding skills and it flew off like a bomb- however, the opponent just punched it away; I didn’t expect such strength…
“<Oath – I am the hunter for evil heretics>”
I struggled to inflict maximum damage… but it seemed useless so I had to resort to this…
“<Oath – I am the leader of devout believers>”
I was unable to hinder the opponent who has completed the reinforcement process…

“… I’ll slaughter you with all my strength now! <High Level Regeneration>”
Ah! Dirty! This person’s dirty-handed!! People who’re normally this strong would not be granted the price of transcendence strengthening, no? I can dish out some damage, but his HP Regen will just recover most of it… Even poison is mostly useless because he probably has some way of nullifying it… It can’t be helped, I’ll have to unleash all my power-
“<Body Enhancement: Slaughterer’s Organs>”
I can do more.
I will ask for enhancements from Yamada and the others now.
“High Enchantment: Glorious Prominence>; <High Enchantment: Storm of Ruin>; <High Enchantment: Darkness Abyss>, <High Enchantment: Light’s Devotion>”
“Bastard!? How many are you going to go for…?!!”
An <Oath> would be nice now, I guess? I have no idea how to obtain it though, so as a replacement for that, I’ll use more enhancements.

This must be the limit? Well, the opposite party started using prohibited moves first, so I guess it shouldn’t matter?
“… I guess I really have to kill you here right now!!!”
The ground started to split apart and Ronove dashed over faster than the speed of sound; I could not react to that speed and just stood still.
“What chaotic power… how many people have you sent to hell?”
“… Hell? Does it even exist? I’ve never been there before so I can’t speak for it…”
“Stop mocking me!”
Is there a world for the afterlife? I have never died before so I don’t know. Why did he ask something that cannot be confirmed…? Perhaps Ronove knows about it…? Well, I personally hope it exists.
I escaped Ronove’s repeated fist punches. Each of his blows blew up the surroundings all the way to the forest behind me. After dodging one of them, I struck his elbow with my shortsword’s pommel.
“Damn it! Why do you have so much power, technique and skills while being so young?!!”
“… I’m not sure why.”
I answered Ronove’s questions in the midst of the continuous attacks and defence. I dodged the opposite party’s kicks and tried to stab his neck, but it was deflected by his chin and a right straight punch came for me. I flipped my body in the air and grabbed his wrist with my right hand and placed my left hand on the back of his elbow; using the opponent’s momentum, I threw him into the air.
While he’s in the air, he tried to land some punch at a fast speed, so fast I could not see it, and I immediately backed off to avoid it.
“Why… You’re the good person who saved the sisters, right? Was that anything that forced you to act this way?”
Once again, we clashed with each other. I aimed for the neck with the shortsword and wielded it sideways, but it was struck down by his left hand, he then attacked me with the <Crimson Lotus Land> punch and pinned me down. At that moment, I answered his earlier question.
“I helped the sisters because I couldn’t found your base. By helping the kids, you would lower your guards, so I did that.”
“Ughh?!!” That statement staggered him.
While my wrist was being crushed, I used the force of fulcrum and hit his solar plexus with <Explosive Gust> which blew him off.
“Gah!! … <Exheel>! But you were having fun with them, weren’t you?! Why have you fallen to such lowness?”
While adjusting my posture in midair, the opposite party let me go… he did an axe kick with probably a skill, I crossed my arm and escaped to the side… There’s a huge hole in the ground.
“-If I really have to say, I probably did that because it seemed fun?”
I threw an iron ball at him as he answered.
“In the first place, I just followed my heart, so I find it difficult to answer if you ask me the reason why.”
“Also, would you stop asking while we’re ‘playing’? We’re killing each other after all.”
I actually wanted him to focus on ‘playing’, but he’s been deviating from it since earlier?
”… it’s fine, I’ll have no hesitation or guilt when it comes to killing you!!”
Is he finally going to be serious? That makes me happy.
