Monster Musume chapter 42: VS Lizardman
For several hours the heroes fought devil beasts in the valley, so now they looked a lot better. By still killing monsters, they seem to not remember some sense of guilt. Their hands holding the weapons don't shake and are grasped firmly. Slowly, let's have them face the Lizardmen…no, let's see how things go a little longer. I can´t make a wrong decision. I must ascertain them properly.
They dodged the tongue of a rock frog and Taiga hit it to the ground. It was a frog-like devil beast having the skin like a rock and when the skin cracks, the internal organs gets destroyed with a single blow. After the tongue was lowered limply from the mouth, it seemed to have died just now. As for the other frogs, they were exterminated by the other heroes.
"You´re able to win without any possibility of danger. You have the ability of a street fighter" Tsuchio
"Is that so? Then it is good"
"In the case of these fellows, because you can fight without hesitation, it is good"
“Extremely tolerably, but compared with the lizardmen, they are really easy…”
"May such a feeling be okay? Since we fought, you can't say that's a draw"
"In order to survive, you have no other choice but to beat your enemy…. The purpose is for all of you to return to Japan together. I think it's painful, but do your best!"
"You're right! We shouldn't only rely on Seiya!"
"I must do my best…! I don't want to be a nuisance!"
“Me too, I never want to let anyone die"
Oh, they united together voluntarily. They have the resolution to beat the demons and to return to Japan, but whether it is possible for them to return to Japan isn´t know. Soon….
"Then, this time you will fight against lizardmen. No matter what, you can't rely on the knights" Tsuchio
When I say so, the expressions of the heroes freeze. Oh, what happened to their momentum from just now? In that way, they will overcome the lizardmen.
“So…by all means, do we have to fight?"
Saiko asked so. After all…they don't want to fight so much, but is there a reason for it? At any rate, if it is a human, will the opponent be a monster?
“Everyone already, in case of your opponent being an animal such as frogs and condors, you can fight properly. Because the lizardmen are like humans and the feeling of evasion to murdering them by all means is a sense of guilt. Will Lizardmen be demons? Your training focused only on devil beasts, so that you slowly get accustomed to defeating demons…”
“…are the lizardmen devil beasts?"
“Eh? …Emm, now what is the difference between an monster and a demon?"
They didn’t learn about such a thing either…. I mean, how do they think that a lizardman is a demon? …Ah, perhaps.
"Ahead of that. Heroes, were you thinking that human type monsters were demons so far?"
“Ye, yes, that's right, is it different?"
"Yes, it is different. Goblins for example aren't demons"
If it is a goblin king, it is a demon. However a common goblin is a devil beast.
"Demons are appointed fellows who control and command devil beasts. This monster is really a devil beast”
"Is it so…therefore a human type isn't a demon"
"As much as it is a human type, it's also ill-natured. Goblins, lizardmen, orcs and trolls are overall human-type monsters. Those fellows have a high reproductions rate and they can give birth to various children"
“Emm, what do you mean?"
"In other words, they kidnap females from all over the place to mate with them. Of course, they also kidnap humans"
A human type is after all similar to a human. Because the reproduction rate of humans is higher than other races, the high fecundity would emerge from them as a characteristic. It is a common setting in a light novel and it is considerably terrible if it takes place in reality. If you can't rescue a person in time, that person breaks. The world is really cruel.
"That's why, a human-type is a devil beast"
“…Understood, let's try it"
“Please. Well, if you see lizardmen around here, they are lizards who walks on two feets”
“So, so try to make sure of it”
Simply, lizardmen can't be seen as humans. If you fight them once you will know it. Well, they will learn from the experience.
At last in that way, the heroes stood opposite to the lizardmen. There were 5 lizardmen, it wasn't too much and it wasn't too few, it was just the right number. They have to be able to get over this, but they aren't really made to fight with demons. I'll show them the nature of a hero.
When the lizardmen barked and knocked on the ground with their tail, they are threatening you. Since the first surprise attack on the knights was done from the river, probably because I dragged them out from the river with Rin’s blitz, the lizardmen were waiting on land. Unexpectedly Saiko prepared first.
Soil rises from the ground and hold the lizardmen down. At the same time Seiya and Taiga cut down the distance at a stretch, while Kurumi started to chant magic. Immediately the lizardmen break out of the earth restriction with their proud muscle strength, but Seiya already entered their bosom. He struck into the lizardman who was before him with one blow and keeps on stabbing the neck of the lizardman, while Taiga caught the face of another lizardman and turned it with all his might. With that alone, two lizardmen fell down to the ground. Both of them retreated while the remaining lizardmen were stunned. They tried to chase Seiya and Taiga at once, but many earth spears dashes out from ground suddenly and skewered the lizardmen. Not all of them died, but many were stabbed in their stomach, arms and feet. Both Seiya and Taiga each dealt a fatal blow.
“…There doesn't seem to be a problem"
Except that everyone was stunned for some reason, no strange point was seen. They settled it unexpectedly easily though I worried variously. I thought that I would be more excited…but well, it isn't a bad thing particularly and I don't mind it.
“…We killed a human type monster, but the impact is less than the time we killed that death eater bird….”
"Is this usual? I feel so bad…”
“However, rather than thinking like that, this may be better…”
“…You're right. We can't return home when we don't fight, so this will be what we should be pleased with. However the uneasiness still remains…”
Somehow no feelings arise after they murdered the lizardmen and it doesn't seem to be strange. Maybe they aren't aware of that it will digest them to some extent. The lizardmen, rock frogs and death eater birds were all devil beast.
"Well in this case, they were able to fight against the lizardmen. Besides, they overcame the blood thirst of these fellows. How didn't you feel the stern?"
"When you say so…I felt nothing in particular"
"Murderous intent isn't only a feeling that you'd like to kill, it's also the will to beat your enemy. They shall undergo training with the lizardmen a little more"
If this goes on, even if I use Ruu too in the next mock battle, can I beat them…. Well, they must repel the demons, so I am in trouble if they don't have the strength to do so. I shall have them do their best a little longer.
Then until the day set, the heroes repeated the battle with the devil beasts. In the afternoon we went further upstream and fought against lizardmen which had a high ranking. Because their sense of guilt faded away, the movements of the heroes became better and they have grown to even amaze the knights. Original attainments had been demonstrated enough, so if they improve their techniques in real battles afterward, they seem to be able to become true heroes both in name and in reality.
Before the sun sets, we returned to the knights’ lodging and spent one night there. As for the knights’ lodging, although the inside was simple, it was well made. Because preserved food was saved, we made an easy dinner and slept immediately. Kurumi and Saiko were left in the impression to have complained that they wanted to take a bath. And early in the morning of the next day, while the heroes still were sleep, Sensei, the knights and me discussed about today's plan.
"For the time being, I intend to go to subdue the thieves who seem to be in this neighborhood…for the current heroes, can they kill humans?"
"Because they were able to defeat the lizardmen, these thieves shouldn't be a problem. As for these guys who murdered another person, take their belongings. Their existence is below a devil beast"
Izaria argued heatedly. However, the men's opinion seems to be different.
"Have the thieves been confirmed?"
“Emm, a merchant group who went along the nearby highway three days ago seemed to have been attacked. Because they had adventurers guarding them, they seem to have thrown away their luggage and had been able to get away. For the merchant to have abandoned their luggage, the thieves seem to be still here"
"No matter how many lizardmen they defeat, the story is different, when it's a human. Simply talking to them, something feels different. I think it is still too early…”
"Taking things easy at such a time, shall we stay? If the north fortress is broken through, the capital will fall soon. For the heroes, I have them go to the north fortress even right now, so that they can repulse the demons”
The knights groan to teacher's words. The opinion of Sasha-sensei is reasonable, but what the knights are saying isn't wrong either. Isn't there a good compromise…:
"Well, let's look for the thieves for now. Because the adventurers who guarded were C-B rank, we won't have any problems. Not participating in the subjugation of the thieves and leaving it to the heroes´s judgment. Will they alright?”
"Well, it is appropriate "
"We will follow the intention of the heroes"
"In that case, I don't mind. But when the heroes refuse, we will kill them"
The heroes got up and after finishing the preparation for departure, I tell them that we will leave subduing the thieves to the heroes. Indeed as for humans, it seems to be different so far. Everybody gathered and looked pale like yesterday's morning.
“…In other words, we shall kill humans"
“That's right, as I said before, there are demons who have a similar form to a human. Such fellows, can you attack them?"
"You must be able to attack them or you can't defeat your enemy. If it'll be so, you will die. Killing a human, I know that you are disgusted. Because it may be refused, but please keep in mind that you only "Looking for thieves"”
After the talk was finished, we left the lodging immediately. From the place where the adventurers were attacked on the road, we narrowed down the range to several kilos and searched them. If we say that the thieves have a hideout, this neighborhood has only a cave. The cave recorded in the map in the lodging is identical to the cave in the area narrowed down tightly. For now we went there…bingo. Because a trace of a wheel of a wagon was found I followed it and arrived at the cave.
In front of the cave sat two dirty men who drank liquor. The only entrance of this cave is here. There is no way of retreat if I block it.
"The hideout of the thieves is found…Did you get a definite idea?"
“…Yes, I have consulted with everyone and have decided that we will participate in the subjugation of the thieves"
The heroes’ eyes open big…It really is different from the day before yesterday.
"We are called heroes and in order to help the people in trouble, we decided to fight. In a place like this, we can't just stop"
"To seize the luggages of the life source of merchants, I also don't keep a weather man!"
"They are the same as devil beast! They're devil beasts called human!"
"If we can save somebody by our power, we can't help if we are not there!”
Oh, the dialog where such teeth float can be said well…. The knights seem to be impressed. When doing very, it is likely to become such an idea. When such fellows were chosen and summoned, the guy who made the magic would think about a country earnestly. Until yesterday, I thought that they couldn’t kill human-type monsters. The heroes are abnormal. To be able to devote yourself to a stranger, I'm sick already….
"Then, the heroes will also participate in subjugating the thieves. The knights are the vanguard, the heroes are in the middle, while we are in the back.
By the way, that cave seems to be really wide, so I don't take Ruu with us. Saying that Ruu has to wait at the entrance…is Garm okay?
“Sensei is Garm safe in that area?"
"Well, it wouldn't be a problem. As for you, are you okay without your dragon"
"Of course. Rin can be used in this area and Lime became quite strong, too"
I don't know the structure of this cave…but for now, I'll work out a strategy.
