When I translated a teaser a few years ago my website was quite small and I was in a poor financial situation. I have been getting a few comments about...
Episode 93 – The Last to Go on Stage
“Everything went according to the plan. However, I killed the Marquis because he interfered. I apologize.”
“Oh, don’t worry about it. When he came here with the relief supplies, he had it coming. Well, I do wish I could have seen the look on his face.”
“Besides, the unicorn I summoned has been defeated.”
“What? The unicorn has been defeated?”
“Yes, it skewered the Marquis with its horn, but then it got hit in the eye with a sword. Right after that, it was attacked by a herd of hundreds of deer. I somehow managed to escape from the herd, but I can’t do anything now because my MP has depleted. I’m afraid I’m going to have to ask for reinforcements.”
“All right. I’ll gather everyone and head over there. Hey, everybody, listen up. I want you to stop what you’re doing and head to Utnica’s rescue. She is being attacked by hundreds of deer. Get everyone ready for battle as soon as possible after the transfer.”
「「「「「「「「 Roger that. 」」」」」」」」
“I am going to use transfer. Stay clear.”
I forced the sandwich I was holding in my mouth and swallowed. I didn’t think that the sandwich that Rico had brought me this morning would come in handy in this situation. Now I can fight without feeling hungry for a while.
As I was thinking about this, the space around Utnica began to distort. Her companions, Porcehai, were transferring.
“Utnica, what’s going on! Whoa!”
“Utnica, how are you…?”
“Utnica, damn it…”
I trapped every single Porcehai that had transferred inside my barriers and took away their MP. And finally, Lecornai arrived.
“What the hell is this? Aah!”
As soon as they arrived, I trapped them inside my barriers, sucked out of their MP, and left them unable to move. It looks like they’re all here now. I release my barriers and take off the hoods of the fallen ones one by one with Gon and the others. Then I gather everyone in one place and set the barriers back up again.
“Is everyone here? I can’t have the palace in an uproar, so I’ve had you all transferred here with great difficulty. I’ve taken all of your MP and I’ve got you in custody. Now, Lecornai, I have a question for you.”
I activate my appraisal skill as I stare at the skinny, wire-like man with protruding teeth and a single eye.
“…Marquis! You’re… not… dead… are you! Utnica! …Utnica… What happened to her? Utni…!”
Utonica was right in front of the Porcehais who had just transferred. She was on her knees, mouth open with a hollow expression. She was also drooling while gazing at the void with her out-of-focus eyes.
Utnica was completely unresponsive to the desperate calls of her friends.
“I was playing with this woman’s mind. Unfortunately, I’ve never used Dark Magic before, so I’m not sure how to get her to revert it.”
I used my Dark magic Lvl 4 Mental Domination to invade Utnica’s mind and used her skill of “Thought” to lure Lecornnai and the others. This skill is very useful. It seems to be able to convey information even to those who are quite far away. I think I’ll give this to all of my family members.
“…Anyway, Lecornai. By eliminating the Dwarves, you Porcehais want to replace the Principality of Niza as the source of weapons and armor. Are you trying to kill two birds with one stone by using the dwarves as test subjects for the poison you created? Seriously, you guys are a bunch of jerks.”
“How do you know that?”
“It was a well-thought-out plot, but I don’t like the way it’s done. Instead of destroying the skills of the dwarves, why don’t we grind ourselves to surpass their skills? All you do is develop your stupid skills! I’m sure your clan has done some pretty nasty things around the world anyway! Looks like you all need punishment.”
The eight Porcehais who just transferred were groaning, but they can’t move because they are completely out of MP. I can’t help but praise them for staying awake in this unimaginably tiring state.
“What are you going to do now, master?”
“I’m gonna drive them crazy.”
“What? What? I’m scared.”
Ferris and Laura drew their faces towards me. I pull out my “OniKiri” and cut the Lecornai in half.
He screamed very loudly.
Perhaps unable to bear the pain, Lekornai clenched his teeth as hard as he could.
“Geez… haha, hahahahaa!”
“He is supposed to be hallucinating that he is being torn apart and experiencing a hair-raising situation, but somehow he is laughing. Has he transcended the curse of the “Onikire”?
“Hyah, hyah! I can’t hear anything anymore. I’m invincible! Hee-hee. With this medicine, I’m already safe and sound. Hyahhyahhyahhyah.”
His eyes were bugging out and he was foaming and laughing. He seemed to have completely lost his mind.
“What the hell is this?”
The two girls’ faces were tense and they were in a complete daze.
“Oh, he is having a complete mental breakdown.”
I put my hand on the laughing Lekornai’s head and held him down. I then activated my Dark Magic Mind Control and ordered him to use his “Thought” skill to send out a signal to call for help in an emergency.
“What are you doing, Rinos?”
“These guys can send a rescue signal to their own people, but the range depends on their level. This one has the highest level, so it should be able to reach Porcehai pretty far away. There’ll be more of them transferring, so you all stay away.”
“Gon, before his friends get here, I’m going to take away the skills of those sleeping in the barriers. Help me.”
One after another, I took the skills of all the Porcehais one after another. And when I had taken everyone’s skills, the area around Lecornai began to distort.
The number of Porcehais transferring was over a hundred. There were so many of them that I had to set up a wide area barrier to take away the MP of those inside. However, there were many who couldn’t fit inside the barriers. Naturally, they attacked us.
“Ferris! Laura! Watch my back! Let’s got!”
They seemed confused for a bit but came back to their senses in an instant. I used my left hand to put up a barrier around me, and with my right hand, I used my LV5 Wind Magic God’s Wind on the Porcehais that were coming at me. A great number of Porcehais were chopped into pieces and dropped on the ground.
“Ferris on five, Laura on three, !”
Gon is on my shoulder, giving instructions to the two girls. Ferris is beating up Porsecais and the others with her monstrous strength. Even though she is a girl, she is still a dragon nonetheless. When she hits with her full strength, their head burst like a balloon. Laura was fighting with water magic, mainly with ice shots, and defeated the Porcehais.
“Out of my way!”
Ferris breathed out fire towards a group of Porcehais. They instantly disappeared from sight.
“It’s wonderful that you can breathe out fire while in human form…”
Gon is strangely impressed.
In the end, there were only about thirty Posehais that we captured, most of them fell prey to our magic.
“Well, Gon, let’s take the skills of the rest of them… looks like there’s still some left.”
A ridiculously large Porcehai transferred right on top of Ferris’ fire breath and burned away. One of his ears was missing and the left half of his body was burnt.
“Hey, long time no see, stupid rabbit. I let you go the other day, but I won’t let you go again this time, okay?”
“You’re… you’re… you’re!”
“I’ve wanted to meet you again, but I never thought I’d see you here.”
The big Porcehai looked around. He stopped his eyes at Lecornai, who was laughing madly, and Utnica, who was still staring dumbly into the void.”
“Lecornai… did you take a pill… Utnica…”
“I messed with Lecornai’s mind and got you guys to come. I was thinking of capturing all of you, but there were too many of you that transferred and we ended up fighting. They’re the only ones left alive.”
“Hey, Lewan’s men! Kasha’s…! Sinsha! Mukoma! The rest of them…”
“About a hundred of them had transferred. They’re the only ones left.”
“What? What? The others… they’re dead!”
“Now, tell me… What the hell are you guys up to? Is there a mastermind?”
“Oh, no! I won’t forgive you! I’ll never forgive you!”
The big Porcehai took out some kind of medicine from his pocket and threw it into his mouth. Then, his body began to grow in size. And then he began to exude a terrifying aura.
“Hey, Ferris, Laura, Irimo. This is going to be a little tricky. You guys stay back.”
The three of them nodded and jumped high into the air.
At the same time, the big Porcehai swung his huge fist at me. It seemed to be a blow with all his weight behind it. But his fist didn’t reach me. It stopped just short of touching my body.
I pull out the holy sword on my back and cut off his fist. At the same time, I cut off the rest of his arms and legs. After a moment of silence, he collapsed to the ground, blood gushing out of his body.
“Gah, gah, gah, gah!”
I trapped the Porcehai in a Flaubarrier, who was still moving and took away his MP. I then applied a little bit of recovery magic to his hands and feet to stop them from bleeding.”
I activate the appraisal on him again.
What the hell? What is this?
When I looked into his past, I found out some unbelievable facts.
