Monster Musume chapter 67: Northern forest
I advance on Rin through this dark forest and paying attention to the area. Lime is in the lead to search for the magical power of trents, while Ruu is on my right side. Even Ruu understands birds and monkeys…I hear that spirits can be judged from air. I mean, what is a spirit? A ghost? A zombie? A skelett? Well, I will know it when I meet. Although it is the first time fighting such an enemy, is it okay….
Because the inside of the forest covers the sky with leaves it is dark even if it is still noon. The unpleasant feeling lying in the air also arouse on my skin. Was it because it was a field or was a field here before the fortress…. What a weird forest.
Suddenly Lime stretched out her arm to slash in front of her. Almost all tree are cut down, a branch wriggles as a shield unnaturally and some stop the attack.
Several trees are standing in the cutted forest. Until just now ordinary looking trees cracks their trunks and pull out their roots from the ground before approaching slowly.
“Ruu, Lime I entrust the front to you! Rin, don’t get surrounded okay!?”
Rin shoots lightnings to the left and right. Some branches ramifying in the air and Rin aims at several branches. Although it wasn’t prevented like Lime, the effect of the lighting might be bad. They don’t seem to receive damage so much and the roots are pulled from the ground. Umm, what shall we do? In this way we will be surrounded.
“Good, Rin confine the right side. We will knock down the left side. Shadow-san”
I take my talismans out, while Shadow-san jumps into the shadow of a tree. Now, as a little warm up shall I release the fire bees first? We wont need much time if we finish quickly.
The talismans I throw out blaze up and take the form of bees on. Their bodies are smaller than before, however they are also responsive faster. First I’ll suppress their power and value their speed and accuracy, so the damage will be light.
In front of the treants, Shadow-san jumps from shadow to shadow and pulls the aim to herself. Sometimes she shot magic to nail down the glances of the treants to her. From the back of Shadow-san appear small red bees who thrust into the treants.
The bees who crash at the bodies of the treants cause a small explosion and keep shaving the bark. Because the firepower is suppressed it is just like that. My favorite is next.
Big and round bees are thrusting straight through that explosion smoke. The fire bees from just now by all means were not the revised version and the firepower progress would raise if the fire bees become slow-footed. Tentaively they can fly like bees, but they are too slow, so they fly only basic and straight lines.
Therefore these heavy fire bees go through the smoke screen that the light fire bees caused and charge at the trents. The large scale explosion that is stronger than the ordinary fire bees makes a hole into the Treant’s trunk. Even if you think of a certain monster capturing game, then even there is fire effective against trees!
I think that I could beat almost all treants with my fire bees now. There are still some left…but it is okay to leave them to Shadow-san. Her magic seem to be effective neatly and Shadow-san´s idea is also okay.
“Rin, are you okay?”
“Nn, there was no problem. Lets also knock them down quickly”
Magic is ineffective, but physical attacks seem to work. Although Rin can’t rush in this forest, she kicks and tramples the trents. Rin´s leg strength is considerably strong and the branches aren’t thick. The treants are viciously beaten, but they come closer and surround her. Is it indeed severe for one person?
I shot light fire bees out to free Rin from the enclosure for now. The treants try to hit them with their branches, but the fire bees almost avoid all of them and thrust into their dead trunks. The treants who started enclosing Rin didn’t move to be not be blown off, but their body postures were destroyed. And Rin uses this chance to thrust at them with a dash.
“Then next is!”
I throw five talismans that are similar to the fire bees into the air…but they aren’t normal fire bees. When ordinary fire bees are pawns, the light fire bees are bishops, the heavy fire bees are rooks, then these fellows are knights. Their models are hornets! They use the same quality paper as the rock snakes!
Talismans blazes up and take the form of flame bees. Five big hornets with a medium-sized needle are hovering around me strangely.
“Everyone, clean up the enemies in front!”
At my signal the hornets jump at the treants. The moment you thought they jump at the trunks, the long needles already pierced through it. Dark red magic is poured inside instead of poison and the moment the hornets left they have exploded. Very good, the explosion from the inside is effective against the trents. The bees who poured their magic into them one after another have nearly 10 treants burst and scatter.
“Tsuchio, are you okay!?”
“Ou, have you finished overthere?”
“So it went well on your side too…. Here…we have just finished knocking them down”
Shadow-san returned, I wonder how many treants went she through…. The hornets have killed these guys with an explosion. Well, it can’t be helped.
“Yes, the remodeled version of the fire bees. Look, the striped pattern has also be done”
The hornets are striped red and orange on their stomach. It was a hard time attaching this pattern, thats because I have no choice but to tell it…. A form of commitment.
The hornets who finsihed their mission returned to the talismans who are in my hand. They seem to find their usefulness in case of this forest and they seem to have a high efficacy against trents. They can bite and attack with their jaws just in case and there is also destruction as the last means. And because the talismans burn down too, they can’t be used again.
“Now, then let’s advance…oh wait the ghosts appeared”
“I think that the aura of Shadow-san who is a ghost type, so ghost is sensitive to that air”
Through Shadow-san, no strong magic is transmitted. She is quite excellent as a ghost sonar. Ruu, Lime and Rin can’t feel it directly…. Somehow the end. Our direct connection is also big.
Unexpectedly several snow-whites silhouettes appear aimlessly between the trees. When they approached, suddenly the air and the temperature falls twice by one degree…. Don’t they look like ghosts. Physical attacks probably won’t work…okay, let’s doing it by assembling everyone.
“Leave one for me, you can defeat the rest how you want. Ruu, can you attack those guys?”
“It is possible, I will fill my hand with magic when needed”
Ruu´s fist shines red and white smoke is raised. Ah, there was also that.Certainly, we wouldn’t be able to hit them normally.
“Nn, give one of them to me. Now, lets try it”
In front of me was one ghost. It is a typical ghost who doesn’t have feets and is semitransparent. It wears a robe and its face isn’t seen because of the hood.
The ghost creates a lump of ice in the air and aims at me before he shoots it. Does the ghost use ice magic? It feels like that. I throw out a talisman and a wall appeared which defended me from the lump of ice. First I use a normal talisman that blazes up and becomes a fire ball that approach the ghost. However a water shield appeared in the air and prevented the fireball. Because water is included in ice magic…it is difficult for physics and fire to work….
Three talismans are lined up in the air. A wall is spreading again on the left side and a sword mark appear on the right side which I put at my mouth. Good, is it temporarily for now? When it’s too much, time and magic are used. It took on the shape I imagined.
“First the wood”
The lowest position talisman changes into a branch overgrown with leaves. Then next.
“Fire burns wood”
The talisman in the middle blazes up and becomes fire that spread on the branch and the flame becomes stronger the moment it reached the branch. Then lastly.
“Combine earth with ash”
The branch that became ash now mixed with the earth that appeared out of the upper talisman. I increased the amount of earth quickly and it became a globe with the size of a basketball. Oh, it increased more than I thought. Because it condensed neatly, it’s considerable hard. Using this clod!
“Hit hard, threefold rock!”
The clod which transformed and is revolving like a wedge is shot at the ghost. The ghost tried to stop it with his water shield, but it went through it and penetrated the body of the ghost. A hole is in his body…ah, its body collapsed. Earth made from talismans, while properly make damage. Well, magic seems also to be effective against ghosts. Talisman art is some like magic.
Nevertheless…multiplied magic wasn’t used here. If talismans are piled up to the extent where the power and the structure of a heavy talisman are raised more, a big amount of magic power is consumed each time. Because the ghost´s shield was water it had an influence and weakened the earth, but I think that it went well. Maybe wood is also fine, because the opponent’s shield was sucked up and seems to be strengthened. Well, I’ll verify it around here now.
“Huh, Shadow-san also beat a ghost. When…although life force can’t be sucked up, is it okay? Particularly, such burden become difficult to understand. Thanks to Shadow-san, we can battle neatly without carrying any baggage. Therefore we all have the obligation to protect her and make her stronger. It’s the same as if parents raise a child”
I think if it is Shadow-san, she is likely to understand though she can’t say it. Thus, it´s also important to express it in words and tell. Shadow-san cant speak yet. She also has no mouth…but when will her voice start to come out.
“Oh, has it already ended so quickly. …No, I only spend time with one. Rather than that, it would be better to throw talismans as usual”
As long as magic continues and as long as talismans can be endured, it is an advantage of the heavy talismans to increase the power at any place. This means that chanting doesn’t work. Aria of ten digits…seems to become crazy. Saying the same thing again and again.
“Is there any sign of monsters in the surrounding? There are no ghosts”
“There aren’t any doubtful signs. I can neither smell nor hear anything”
“There aren’t monkeys! Are the spirits only ghosts…that’s impossible. Then, only ghost would be written at the guild”
Don’t lump all spirits together! Each one is different, it’s not that troublesome
“Zombies or skeleton soldiers? I think zombies can be recognized even in a far place…”
“Would you go to the inside? Won’t you get lost?”
“Is that so? Then, lets dont worry and advance straight”
As we can fly, should we return even if we waver? For now we only need to avoid being surrounded. Because physical superiority cannot be made light of, how strong will be the monsters here? If shooting a number of unskillful guns, if the vital points are hit, it is instant death. Then, there are also absolutely strong devil beasts in this world who are allowed to come near…we only havent arrived their territory yet. Hellfire-san will be one of them. Did the egg from that advanced dragon hatch neatly? Is it growing up vigorously? What will it be called…. I’m its mother´s enemy so when it becomes big, it may come to take revenge. …When that time comes, let’s defeat it to the extent that it doesn’t die. Well, a benefactor would say, that it wouldn’t be such thing…probably.
“However it is comparatively easy to get out from the forest if going along the road. But still since we entered the forest we were attacked twice. Moreover continuously. Is that, because all adventurer who are here are strong, that there is a feeling that the other party keep attacking?”
“Well, they are harder than the monsters near the capital. There is room”
“Uu…sorry, I said it selfishly”
Apart from treants, werent the ghosts really quick here…. Certainly, it may be bad that I said that I use the heavy talismans. Loreen-san said that it was also an indispensable skill to ascertain your opponent and use an appropriate talisman for independent usage of the talisman art. Standard talismans are consumable and it takes time of some level to make strong talismans. They can’t be wasted. A good amount was made…because it’s used fairly.
“On the second thought, is it better for me to devote myself to support? To begin with it isn’t my style to fight at the front”
“Tsuchio is immediately behind us. Because it is easy to defend”
“I understand, I understand…it depends on the circumstances”
Being protected for a long time, it is indeed miserable. It is important to do your best within the range that can be done.
