70 Part 2
I activated Thunderclap and dashed away from there to the side.
I couldn’t let this turn into a defensive battle, I had to attack as well! Throw everything I’ve got at him!
I had to align myself with the oni. Aim for its ankles. Deprive him of both his speed and its ability to fight in close quarters.
However, the bullets I shot impacted against its skin, and after losing all of their momentum, fell to the ground.
“Reload【Armor-piercing ammo PT-02】”
I changed my ammunition in order to once again unleash a flurry of shots against the oni’s hard skin.
Those bullets should be able to pierce its body…
『HAHAHA, WHAT’S THAT? A PEASHOOTER?』
With this difference in size, my attacks may not be as effective unless I strike directly at its body, just like what it was back with Jiisha.
Still, its HP gauge was in the red zone. It couldn’t have more than 10% HP left. If its HP gauge were completely full, this would be a much more desperate situation, but under these circumstances there was still a way out of this.
I kept on circling around the oni, shooting armor-piercing bullets all over its ankles.
『IT’S POINTLESS– BLAZING FIRE!』
It looked at me fully composed and hurled another fireball at me.
It may have been just like throwing a rolled up ball of paper to the oni, but to me it looked as if it had thrown a small car engulfed in flames at me. I couldn’t let myself get hit by that.
I kept circling around him, shooting more armor-piercing bullets at its ankles while avoiding his continuous barrage of fireball attacks.
『WHAT’S WRONG? IS FIRING THAT PEASHOOTER ALL YOU CAN DO?』
Taunt me all you want. This was all part of a process. A process that would end with your defeat.
After reloading a second time and focusing all of my armor-piercing bullets on a specific point of its legs, I opened my mouth, feeling a flavor I hadn’t tasted in a long time.
“–Alright, all set!”
『… ALL SET? WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO SHOW ME NEXT?』
The oni seemed to enjoy itself as it kept making fun of me.
Don’t you worry, I’ll show you alright.
Straight after that, I pointed my gun directly at my head, and pulled the trigger twice.
The oni and its companions seemed utterly confused after watching what seemed to be me commiting suicide. Even Aoi and Kanon seemed to get their eyes all muddy.
“Sorry, guys. I have no time to explain now. But this is how I’ll win this.”
I muttered that while confirming that my own HP gauge was in the red zone.
“You better be ready, you bastard! This is my revenge!”
Both my eyes and an intense aura began bursting into red flames as I looked at the oni straight in the eye.
