Monster Musume chapter 85: Appearing in a pinch
Several magic sources are felt from the river, which are probably devil beasts who are aiming for Tsuchio. Shadow-san can’t take her hands away because of Tsuchio’s treatment, therefore I have to stop them here. What kind of monsters inhabit here? …Because the river is so deep, could they be aquatic beasts?
The owners of the magical power came out of the river. Are those mud dolls? The mud of the riverbed became a golem because gravel was mixed in some places. The influence of that big golem seems to extend to such a place, too.
『Golems are really troublesome. Is it still better than mud?』Rin
My hooves are wrapped by wind. Normally, I can fly in the sky with it, but it can also be used for attacking. I know the location of the nucleus, so I can beat them by kicking.
『Shadow-san, for the time being you just need to do first aid! Because the opponents are golems, it will be a hard fight. This number will be okay, but if they increase too much it will be tough!』Rin
I run through the sky and approach the golems who are coming closer to Tsuchio. The golems are walking along the river and heading towards Tsuchio who can’t see them. I can see them now from head to chest and the nucleus is around their stomachs. If the nucleus is destroyed, it won’t be a problem. Certainly, I can’t defeat or knock them down.
Rushing through the air, I crush the golems heads. It feels like crushing a fruit. The mud scatters in the river, but a new head is rebuilt from the inside of the body. It will be hard this time… they are pretty fast and I have to break the nucleus in order to beat them quickly.
If I do so, the golems won’t move anymore. For now, I can also stop searching for magical powers. So far, no other golems have come….
Every time I kick them away one by one, they still come towards Tsuchio. They gradually approach the shore where Tsuchio sleeps. The place of the nucleus came out to a position where I could attack. It’s indeed hard to fight these golems as I try to attack their stomachs, they resist by waving their arms and blocking it.
Suddenly, there are multiple magical powers appearing on the other side of the river. Damn, did additional golems approach? Although it is few compared to the mountain top, they still came in large quantities. I won’t have time unless I beat all of them quickly!
A little bit away from the new approaching golems, I used a bit more strength and thrust into the mud golems in front of me. Thunder magic doesn’t work and I can’t use too much power to obliterate these golems. I´m able to defeat them at once if they all line up at one spot. I don’t have time to rest, I have to defeat more golems.
『Shadow-san, can we move Tsuchio!?』Rin
While kicking the golems in front of me away, I ask Shadow-san this question. …Will it still take a while? We will be in trouble if we don’t manage to do anything and their number increases.
『When you can use quick magic, we can wipe out these guys…if you can use other magic right now. Or you can use magic that is more powerful, that ignores the compatibility.』Rin
Thanks to thunderclap, I was able to grow stronger than ordinary demons. I narrowed down the options of evolution and focused on one thing. I specialized in attack. Because of that, I can only use thunder magic. It ended up backfiring in such a place….
『…It can’t be helped even if I complain. If it is Tsuchio, he would do something as long as he could do what he could.』Rin
What I can do now is to run around and kick the golems to keep them away from Tsuchio. If it is this number, I will run and run and kick them away each time. …Good, I will do my best!
I continued running around the river and blowing the mud golems away. The number of golems emerging from the river increased and the shore is already surrounded. The more the number increases, the more I can defeat by rushing…but my magical power is considerably low now. It is already over ten minutes and the first aid isn’t finished yet!?
『Do it quickly! The number is increasing and I can’t handle them anymore!』Rin
Shadow-san isn’t specialized in healing magic originally. In addition, she is a ghost type monster, so she isn’t using healing magic in the first place. I guess I shouldn’t hurry her… but if she doesn’t end it quickly, I won’t be able to stop the enemies anymore!
Blasting away the golems that were near the shore, I stand on the river side in front of Tsuchio. The next golems were supposed to attack, but they all stopped moving. What, have they given up, after realizing that they can’t beat me? I felt uneasy, because it takes a while.
『Eh, the first aid has ended!? I got it, now that the golems aren’t even coming, let’s go back to the top quickly!』Rin
Just before turning around to Tsuchio, the golems started to move again. In front of the river where I am, the golems gathered together. What does that mean? Would they disturb us while trying to escape?
I don’t know what the golems are going to do, but we need to move Tsuchio away from the river. I ask Shadow-san to defend him, while I observe the appearance of these golems. It’s weird… their magic is growing? What’s in the river… the answer was immediately shown to me. A mountain of mud came out of the river, and the golems jump at it. Is this a union!? They’re going to become a powerful monster, because they cannot win even if they attack by numbers!?
And in front of me, a huge mud golem appeared that was twice the size of Shadow and me. It surely isn’t a human type like the rock golem and it sticks its arms to the mud mountain. The movement is dull, but the huge nucleus is inside the mud. Can I pass through with a dash? …Not good, I can’t judge it. I don’t know what kind of action it will take, but I can’t make a quick dash now. With this size, it will be better to attack from the sky. If this huge mud golem attack Tsuchio by any chance, then Shadow-san may not be able to treat him again. Even if Tsuchio isn’t killed, it is severe because he is currently weakened.
『Shadow-san, please protect Tsuchio properly. You may also attack by long range, however be careful!』Rin
If I knew such a thing would happen, I would have brought them up quickly! I managed to grasp the nucleus’s location and take action to penetrate this golem…. Worst would be if it breaks through and attacks Tsuchio. This huge enemy is made of those mud golems, that’s why my dash can’t be stopped by its mud body!
I avoided its arms and find a gap to hit its body. Even if it’s the scales of a dragon and no matter how strong it is, a light strike doesn’t work at all. There is a trace of my fist left on the body of the huge golem. If I perform strengthening this much, will that metal body deform? If this is the case, it may be possible to slash it with my claws.
While I was under attack, Lime cut a way with her strained nail. The nail has firmly hurt the golem’s body and is raising a tinged white smoke. Lime’s dissolving solution, is it possible to melt this metal…that’s amazing. I wonder if my scales can bear it.
It’s almost three minutes since we started fighting this huge golem that took off the rocks from its body. This interaction has been done many times already and the golem has many wounds. I’m being attacked by the golem right now, so that Lime can cut with her nails at any chance. This golem, although the threat has increased as its movements became quicker, its attacks are monotonous and can be avoided easily. If we are serious, we can hurt the whole metallic body properly. However, it seems that it will take time to do that after all. Even saying that it can be hurt, it isn’t very deep so far. I wonder why such a devil beast came out at such a time.
“It’s about three minutes now, aren’t you ready, Nichrome?” Ruu
“You said you would have finished at that time.” Lime
“I’m sorry to have kept you waiting, all preparations have been completed.” Nichrome
Nichrome´s arm that’s preparation finished had changed from the previous glove. Sure, it’s a weapon that fires a metal ball and is called a gun. This one is like a square box attached to a slender metal cylinder that has been used up to now. It seems to have a hole in everything except the side that sticks to the cylinder. It’s like a string stretched out of the gun and her skin stuck in it. I wonder if it doesn’t hurt.
“Sniper rifle for large monsters, retrofit complete. Checking the connection with the sensor and starting detection of the nucleus.” Nichrome
“Do you know where the nucleus is already?” Ruu
“There is still no reaction, so it seems necessary to cut it a bit more deeply.” Nichrome
“It seems that it is better to cut it with my nail deeply.” Lime
“I will help with my weapon.” Nichrome
The left arm is a gun, while her right arm is a human arm. Nichrome points the gun to the golem and a thunder-like roar is heard the next moment. Too loud, my ears are going crazy.
Apparently the bullet has hit the golem’s chest and snuck inside its body. It has a terrible penetrating force…from scratching it so far. I wonder what it will look like if that hits people. I can’t imagine it.
“Confirmation of hit…it is more powerful than I thought. Continue shooting.” Nichrome
“Hey, Nichrome! That gun is loud! My ears will collapse!” Ruu
“Everyone, you got accustomed to the sound of my heavy machine gun. You should get used to the sound of this sniper rifle, too. Now is not the case to say such a thing, because we will head for master’s rescue. Please get used to it.” Nichrome
A metal cylinder is discharged from the side of the gun and Nichrome shoots again. This time it hit the face and the golem was taken aback. To be sure, as Nichrome says, we only have to think about defeating this guy. It’s easier with this gun that continuously rings as I hear it now. Well, when I thought so, it came to me.
“Okay, shall we do it? Lime, we’ll set it at the same time. Let’s cut it here first, before cutting it from there at once.” Ruu
“I understand. Since we attack the torso, Nichrome will aim at its head. Especially the eyes, if you can crush them, we can fight quite advantageously.” Lime
“All right, I will concentrate on its eyes.” Nichrome
All of us have their own weapons. Now is the moment of truth!
I run around the sky and dodge the swinging arms of this large mud golem. The movement isn’t that fast, but sometimes the thrown mud is troublesome. If it hits, it is heavy and painful unexpectedly and gets stuck on the body which makes it hard to move around. I shook it off somehow, which is a good deal. It’s like throwing your own body, so it’s unfortunate that I can’t do anything about it.
Next, I aim in the air at the golem and immediately made a dash. A hole opened in the golem’s body from me passing through with the aim of destroying its nucleus. I didn’t hit again…and the location of nucleus has changed again. I thought I was mistaken, but it isn’t so. This golem can move its nucleus!
What to do, if the nucleus moves all the time, it makes it difficult to beat this golem alone. I have to get up and try it again. Although it is useless no matter how much I dash, if the golem moves its nucleus during that time.
『My magical power is almost empty…therefore is it alright to bet on one big shot? If it didn’t work, it will be my end. Will I be able to eat Tsuchio? It is too little magic for me to make some time for Ruu and the others to come. Ah, it’s almost empty!』Rin
Many ideas are coming and disappearing. What am I going to do… scorch my remaining magic or is it enough to come up with a breakthrough plan. Shadow-san used tremendous magical power for Tsuchio´s treatment, therefore she can’t use enough magic to defeat this guy. I have to manage somehow…and I did not think I had to think over it.
The golem approached and grabbed my head, before thrusting me into its body. The body of the golem is mud, so naturally I can’t breathe and got buried alive. I ridiculously rampage by kicking and by casting magic, but the golem won’t let go of me. Because of the rampage, my breath became rough because there was no air from all the mud.
I can’t breathe and my consciousness gradually faints away. My body was out of power and I kneeled on the spot. It is painful…not good, I have no strength anymore. Am I dying here?
『No!! I don’t want to die yet! Release me! Please release me!』Rin
No matter however I rampage or how much I hurt its body, the golem won’t let go of me. On the contrary, I have been pushed further into its body.
『No…No way. Help me…help me, Tsuchio!』Rin
As soon as I shouted, a great magical power appeared from behind suddenly and as soon as I noticed, I was thrown to the ground. The golem had two large holes in its body now. It has a tough body, but there is no place to move the nucleus now. I don’t know what happened, but a great opportunity to beat this guy appeared. Well done… I will kill this fellow now!
Concentrating my remaining magical power on my horn and legs, I dash through the golem at once. And I feel something sticking to my horn. At the same time as I stopped, the body of the golem crumbled down.
I can’t confirm it, because I fell down on the spot. I was out of magical power this time and started to lose my consciousness. There seems to be no monsters around, therefore I may as well go to sleep now….
I want to confirm who helped me before fainting. Stimulating my consciousness that seems to sink now, I looks at the owner of the magical power. Well, that’s where I surely evacuated Tsuchio…. However, Tsuchio doesn’t have so much magical power.
『Eh, no way!? Tsuchio…no, it is different, you look alike but you aren’t Tsuchio! Who, who are you!』Rin
I couldn’t keep my consciousness anymore. Damn… who is that, a woman who looks like Tsuchio!
