Monster Musume Harem wo Tsukurou! Chapter 95-97
Monster Musume chapter 95: Night talk
“Muu…after all, even if I make only attack talismans, I can’t do much because of my magic power. For now, I will make disturbing and support talismans mainly.” Tsuchio
“What, Tsuchio, you are still up? It’s already midnight. We’re going to another town tomorrow.” Ruu
In the bedroom allocated within the royal castle, I was struggling before the magic paper I bought today. For the time being, rock snakes and hornets are made…as for new talismans, what shall I do? I have to take time to earn money, so I have to think about coding techniques to stop the opponent’s legs.
While doing such a thing, Ruu who was sleeping in bed talks to me while rubbing her eyes. Has she woken up? I used a magic tool as light…which is convenient, so that I can do such work even at night.
“Too bright? I’ve been in the dark…” Tsuchio
“Uuh, I just woke up, so it’s okay. …Are you making talismans, because you lost to Toururi-san?” Ruu
“Well, the next time we fight, I have to be more aggressive.” Tsuchio
Ruu goes out of bed and comes to me. I don’t know if Yukurishisu used her mind, but this bedroom has only one big bed. Ruu and the others are sleeping in the form of a river. Nichrome is rolling herself together so that her snake body doesn’t take much place.
Ruu was sleeping at the end, so that no one else wakes up when she leaves the bed. And the moment she stood behind me, she hugged me closely. Turning her arms around my neck. This is normal for a couple…but I wonder why she was so surprised.
“It has been quite a long time since we had time for each other. Everytime, Lime was sticking with us.” Ruu
“That’s right.” Tsuchio
“Recently, we are too tired at night as well…I miss the times when I was alone with you.” Ruu
“At that time only Ruu became a human.” Tsuchio
Ruu rubs her face. …Toururi-san said that that my familiars and I aren’t suitable for each other. What is Ruu thinking about that part?
“…Tsuchio, you are thinking something strange, aren’t you?” Ruu
“Eh!? Wh, What?” Tsuchio
“It is useless. When Tsuchio is uneasy about something, your body will tremble slightly.” Ruu
“Is that so! Uuwa, you know me very well…” Tsuchio
“Ah yes, I know you very well. What were you thinking?” Ruu
“Ah, I was told by Toururi-san that I and everyone aren’t suitable for each other. What does Ruu think?” Tsuchio
“Uuh, we demons are too much different in ability than Tsuchio, who is a human. If you think about that kind of thing, we certainly aren’t suitable.” Ruu
Well, so it is…pretty shocking. Somewhere in my mind, I thought she would deny it if it was Ruu. Haa, she really is unwomanly.
“However, I think that it is useless to judge your power only by battle.” Ruu
“Uh, what do you mean?” Tsuchio
“We have evolved like this because of Tsuchio. The power of Tsuchio lies elsewhere. Knowing that, Toururi-san wouldn’t say we are unsuitable.” Ruu
“What I’m doing, I think anyone can do it.” Tsuchio
“Say that again…Tsuchio, you underestimate yourself. I couldn’t tame Rin and I would be dead on Danze Island.” Ruu
“A strong tamer is able to beat that dragon.” Tsuchio
“No matter how strong a person is, only Tsuchio will love me. Right?” Ruu
The humanized Ruu will have a lot of suitors. Even if you subtract her dragon limbs, Ruu has too much sex appeal.
“I talk about things before humanizing! Anyway, my only husband is Tsuchio. Whatever she says, why can’t you just forget it!” Ruu
“Don’t you have to consult with the others? If you decide on your own, you will be fighting, like the order in the night.” Tsuchio
“It’s okay. It’s a different matter from what Tsuchio is for me.” Ruu
“Hee, I’m Ruu´s husband, Lime´s father and Nichrome´s master… what about Rin?” Tsuchio
“Rin…because she is a unicorn, is it a master or rider?” Ruu
“I´m her master.” Tsuchio
“Well, being Nichrome´s master is like being a commander, so isn’t it a bit different?” Ruu
“I wonder what Shadow-san thinks…she is my shadow and we share the same body.” Tsuchio
“I don’t think so. Well anyway, you do not have to worry about Toururi´s words! I wish to go down the road Tsuchio has chosen.” Ruu
“Originally, I would do that, but…please say if I’m going to be useless.” Tsuchio
“I understand, Tsuchio. If I get confused, please punch and wake me up.” Ruu
“I think that won’t happen…well, maybe it’s another story. Perhaps Ruu may get confused and kill me. Sometime, you will stop working together with the others.” Tsuchio
“Well then, will you go to bed? Staying up late is not good for your health.” Ruu
“I understand. I will go to bed now, because I have not gotten any idea yet.” Tsuchio
“There are few empty places, please hug me and let’s face each other. This is real love.” Ruu
“I guess it can not be helped…well, it is a thank you for taking my consultation. I will become your holding pillow.” Tsuchio
Ruu said that I have other strengths than fighting. Toururi-san may not say that we are unsuitable. But it is certain that I cannot keep doing it like this. I have to fight a bit, until I can stand on the same place with Ruu. Okay, let’s start with increasing my weapons. Let’s build up how I fight, while fighting.
“Well then, we will head for the empire sightseeing from today onwards. Do you have a city you want to visit, Tsuchio?” Yukurishisu
“I guess…. I don’t know exactly what kind of town it is, but I’d love to go to a magic city. To get some paper.” Tsuchio
“It is Manavary. There are other places I wanted to show you earlier, but there is still time to do so. Well then, shall we go there?” Yukurishisu
The next day after watching the imperial capital, it is time for the sightseeing tour. I was still hurt from the mock battle, so it’s not that bad. However, nothing can be seen, because of Shadow-san´s healing magic.
“It’s been a long time since I went to Manavary. Well, I don’t have to go because I have enough magic.” Yukurishisu
“I want to go to the sword battlefield. It’s boring to go to the magic city.” Tyres
“… Is Tyres-san going with us? What about your work?” Tsuchio
“I got a a couple of days off. Toururi took over my workload.” Tyres
“Just a trip, so you also supervise yourself.” Yukurishisu
As usual, I haven’t been trusted. Huh, how can I make them trust me? Do I have to wait for time to resolve? I don’t know if it will take hundreds of years.
“Doesn´t Wo-san come along?” Tsuchio
“Wo-kun is an answering machine, that’s why he is the grand chamberlain. There must be someone left to lead the command. Well then, we will transfer immediately. Everyone, please don’t take your hand off from me. If you leave it on the way, I don’t know where you will end up.” Yukurishisu
I take Yukurishisu´s hand. When she saw that everyone had connected hands, she chanted a few words. When I thought that a black mist wrapped around us, our bodies were pulled up by a strong power.
My body was pulled and I got off the ground in ten seconds. It is a different feeling from when we transferred with the heroes. I had the feeling that the surrounding scenery changed, but this time my body seemed to move.
“We arrived…haa, I’m tired again when there are many people. I hope to make it easier to use transfer magic.” Yukurishisu
“That is also being studied here, right?” Tsuchio
We arrived at the height of the magical city. It seems to be a building like the royal palace from seeing the surroundings. It’s smaller than the imperial castle, but it’s a splendid building. I wonder if such an architectural style is popular in the empire.
“This is the research tower of the magician who serves the country. Since all the towns of the empire are made of earth, they all have similar constructions. This place is not built from the trace of a bay. They built the wall from scratch.” Yukurishisu
“Compared to the capital, there are many buildings that are big and expensive.” Tsuchio
“The salary of the magicians who serve the country is good and merchants in magical cities are rich people. Naturally, they build bigger buildings.” Yukurishisu
“We have been transferred to such a tower without permission, is that okay?” Tsuchio
“It’s okay. This is my room.” Yukurishisu
Oh, that’s right. Well, as an empress, she clearly has one or two rooms in the important buildings of the country.
“There are several rooms, so please use them freely. Tsuchio and his familiars, please stay in the same room. I would appreciate it if you don’t get soiled so much. Tyres is also here!” Yukurishisu
“Why only us…” Tsuchio
“Well, you’re a human, it cannot be helped.” Yukurishisu
Truly, my familiars will be self-weighted like this. Now, I want to concentrate on making notes.
“I will guide you to your room later, let’s head to the town first. Tsuchio wants to go buy paper, right?” Yukurishisu
“That ‘s right. I can’t come often, so I would like to buy some of it. I want to know magic and other things.” Tsuchio
I came to a magical city, so I have to learn magic without any hindrance. I hope that there is useful magic that does not exist in the kingdom.
A space that is illuminated with the light of candles, and ten thousands of people are standing there in a quite large area. The words that resonate there and the magic that shines lightly on the floor; it is a scenery that you can see at a glance that it is something like a ritual.
Above the magicians who are wearing a black robe, people were standing around hiding their face with their hoodies and casting spells from mouth to mouth. Language that can’t be understood anywhere, an unknown language. Magical power is drifting around and there aren’t many people who fall down. A new black robed man appears, join the circle of casting magicians. Such a sight is already familiar. Even though there are people who have bloodshed, they can not stop being mindful. Because, this is the necessary sacrifice.
“Everyone! The enemy who finally killed the Lord came to this town!”
A little bit away from the circle, a man with a gorgeous robe swings up both arms and raises head. The black robed people listen to him attentively and have shining and glaring eyes.
“Through that devil, the Lord passed away and the devil sat in the seat as empress. But that is over! With a person from the town and the head of the Lord, we will recall the Lord’s soul! Our Lord who died once will become a far higher existence!”
When the gorgeous robed man placed the head, the black robed people congregated at once. It was a dragon head covered with scales and a large mouth with horns.
“Glory to our Lord! Death to the enemies of our Lord!”
『Glory to our Lord! Death to the enemies of our Lord!』
The black robes repeat the words of the gorgeous robed man. After the chant is over, they just wait for the magicians to accumulate enough magic power. The fate of the empire will have a big turning point. How will it change as humans from different worlds get caught…nobody knows yet.
Monster Musume chapter 96: Outbreak
“Uuh…the magic that I use for my life is quite developed, but the things for battle hare not changed much. Why is the difference so big? “
“There are also types of demons that can breathe fire or blow the wind in a congenital way, so magic for battle is not much emphasized. It helps life a lot.”
“Depending on the type, it isn’t easy to use sorcery at all. We too can’t even use that much.”
“It is a good story to approach and beat him.”
“So that’s how it is … ah, but Yukurishishu is a magician, is not it? “
“That’s right. Well, I can easily do both close-range and magical warfare.”
The royal family and I came to the magical city called Manavary. After buying additional paper, we dropped by a shop selling magic books. With such a thing written, I wonder what kind of effect will this magic produce. Because it isn’t so thick, the price isn’t very high. As expected, things for battle are expensive. The paper was cheaper than the one sold in the kingdom.
“Another good magic book? I am a bit hungry…”
“It is about time for lunch. Do we have some snacks somewhere? “
With two meals a day, most people eat something during the day. I’m talking about snacks, but it’s quite a lot…. This is no different from three meals a day.
“Do you also want to eat something, Tsuchio?”
“No, I am not hungry yet, so it’s okay.”
I ate from morning…till the night, so I have to get hungry first.
“…By the way, Manavary has a bell.”
“Ah, that one. It rings every few hours. The capital is too far away, so the sound doesn’t reach, right?”
“That’s right. There are magical tools that diffuse sound, but mass production isn’t done yet.”
As we talked about it, the sound of the bell rang in the town. It was a beautiful sound that came from the bell installed in the research tower. Magical power is included to the sound and maybe it’s some sort of magical tool. It sounds like a healing sound.
“What is it, Ruu.”
Ruu pauses with her hand on her ear.
“No, something is wrong…”
“Ruu? What is strange!?”
Suddenly, Yukurishisu kneeled to the ground. No, it is not only Yukurishisu. Tyres, Toururi and all my familiars are the same. Most of the people around me are falling on the ground. Well, what, what’s going on! Why am I immune!?
“Are you alright? Hey everybody, are you okay?”
“Well, I´m fine. But it is such a strong magic…”
“What the hell is this…the inside of my head is disturbed.”
Yukurishisu seems to have no problem. The sound of the bell earlier, magic power was included. Is that the cause?
“Father! Big Sister…!” Lime
“Ruu is weak against that magic…Lime, are you okay?” Tsuchio
“I can’t say that I’m fine. I heard someone’s voice in my head right now…”
“What is this disgusting voice. It’s almost like a bottomless swamp, it is going to be drawn into my mind…” Rin
“Defense against magic, I will build a barrier on the main computer.” Nichrome
Shadow-san seems to suffer a little bit, but she doesn’t seem to suffer as much as the others. Ruu is suffering more, but her state isn’t extraordinary. Opening and closing her mouth like a fish and opening her eyes wide.
“Ruu, you okay?!? Is your consciousness clear? Are you feeling bad?” Tsuchio
“Ah yes, it’s me Tsuchio. Keep your eyes on me.” Tsuchio
Shit, what is going on with Ruu? Nichrome defends herself with her main computer, especially that there is no trauma… It is probably spiritual magic.
“Tsu, Tsuchio…” Ruu
“What? What’s wrong?” Tsuchio
“…Ru, Run away.” Ruu
I hold Ruu´s head who raises a big cry. Her magical power is raging and fire blows from her body and heats up the air.
“Hey, what the heck is with you, Ruu!? What do you mean by run away!” Tsuchio
I shake her shoulders, but Ruu doesn’t react. She isn’t screaming anymore and is very weak. Shit, what is really going on here!
“Father! It is dangerous to approach her now! Elder sister’s magical power is rampaging…” Lime
“Then I should cure her! It is easy for me to cure the flow of magical power.” Tsuchio
When I said that, I will restore Ruu’s calm magical power. Nice to meet you, I had no choice but to correct. But I’m still worried. Anyway, I have to take a rest somewhere. I think so and hold her hand. She suddenly threw me away, while I was trying to ask what was wrong.
“Ruu-san, whats your intention!?”
I´m thrown into a building like a restaurant and stop finally, hitting the walls while blowing off desks and chairs. It seems that Lime alone noticed something while Rin and Nichrome couldn’t react in time. As I got help from Shadow-san, everyone was standing around Ruu as I went back. The crucial Ruu stood standing barely without any expression at all. I see Ruu’s face like that of a Noh mask for the first time.
“Father, are you okay? Elder sister´s state…” Lime
“I can see it. Ruu, you know me! Tsuchio, I´m Tsuchio!”
Ruu doesn’t respond at all. She doesn’t look around and my words haven’t reached her. While doing so, the people lying around wake up. However, everyone is strange. They don’t utter a single word and their faces are expressionless like Ruu. … No, is Ruu expressionless like them? People who stood up bore me for a while, but suddenly turned towards us. At the same time, Ruu spreads her wings. And the people who turned towards us were attacking all at once.
“Why are they attacking!”
“I don’t know! But I don’t want to hurt them.”
“Oh, it’s already hard to do! Hey, wait, Ruu! Where are you going?”
Ruu flies with her fluttering wings. I’m gonna reach for you to fight a goblin-like guy who hit me and grab Ruu’s foot. But her hands have emptied the sky and Ruu flew away to the center of the town.
“…Ruu, why…” Tsuchio
“Master, we need to clarify Ruu´s behavior afterwards. Now, we have to get out of this situation.” Nichrome
“Gather together before they reach us! Hey, Tsuchio, come on!” Yukurishisu
Yukurishisu was inspired and we ran away from the spot. Damn…what is going on in this town….
“Tsuchio, we’re done talking here.”
“Is that so…Tyres-san, what is it?”
“I’m still packing the operation over there. Well, I’m hiding my identity.”
We are now hiding in buildings like the guild branch of the kingdom at the edge of the town. It seems that people who are maintaining normal awareness gather here and discuss measures to break through the current situation.
“So, did you know what kind of magic was set up?”
“Well, it was magic of mental manipulation and hypnotism. It seems that the magical power was put on the sound of the bell and it spread the effect through the town. Those who aren’t manipulated are those who are resistant to magic. Mercenaries, magicians, and higher races. Because Tsuchio is a human, you are immune to the magic.”
“So what is the strategy?”
“Of course, it is a strategy to release this magic. Even if you are spreading the effect of this extensive magic with the bell, it should have been prepared somehow. I also confirmed it while I was there, but there was nothing like that especially…”
“A magical team?”
“I feel that way. If you look at it, you know, at a glance, the absolute.”
“Is there nothing else on how to defeat the magician who cast this unknown magic?”
“That’s what it is…. From that, what is Tsuchio writing since a little while ago? Are you listening properly?”
“I’m listening, what shall I reply? I am replenishing my talismans, because I will make a battle after this? New talismans made from the newly bought paper.”
“…Are you following me?”
“Of course. Ruu was taken away? Are you going to say that I shall wait silently?”
“I can understand how Tsuchio´s feels. However, the opponent is a magician who can use such great magic against a large number of ordinary people. Clearly, with Tsuchio´s weapons, it is impossible.”
…Don’t say a lot clearly what you care a lot. Well, it is true or not.
“I intend to follow Tsuchio, but we can’t rush to the research tower. You’re going to ask for inward death payment.”
“…Is that so.”
“Even so, please don’t try to do it sooner or later. Lime, please keep hold of Tsuchio firmly.”
“Of course, I cannot let father jump to his death.”
Was she relieved to hear that, because Yukurishisu returned to the room where she is discussing the strategy. …Haa, be sure not to endure being stuck with the facts.
“Father…are you okay? I was told that, but if father wants me…”
“No, let’s do as Yukurishisu says. I’m going to recapture Ruu while she gets confused by the battle.”
“But Ruu is manipulated by magic, right? Fighting with a serious Ruu, can we win?”
“… If all of us fight Ruu, the winning percentage is about 30%. The problem is that there are other enemies.”
“Oh, it’s difficult to withhold avoidance. If there are other enemies, Lime will be their opponent and endure it. I crush the enemy with haste and head for support.”
“I understand. Even if I change to this life, let’s suppress sister.”
“No, never die. Ruu comes back and it doesn’t make any sense. Sure.”
“Well, there is no point in thinking about bad things. Let’s think about the better side…the possibility of winning is low, though.”
“What to do? I will die if she releases her breath.”
“I see. Even if it costs all members, it is 30%.”
“When I was fighting with her, I was getting in trouble. It is miserable…”
“You can compete with a dragon at an equal rate. If there is a winner…do you have to defeat her with haste?”
“It will be so. It’s the only thing that crushes her down to the encounter with full power.”
“Are you alright with it? If I kill her by mistake, you will have neither a wife nor a child.”
“I have no time to worry about the other party, even if the other party is Ruu…”
Ruu’s serious? …She didn’t use her breath after all in the fortress battle, and it is impossible to measure it honestly. Well, in any case, I can only disable her before she can release her breath.
“Then, will you write down the spell quickly? Because I want to concentrate for a while.”
“Okay, is your burnt hand okay?”
“Ah, Shadow-san cured it. I thought about Ruu for a moment, but I didn’t notice it at all. Tomorrow is early, so please sleep properly.”
“Tsuchio too…I’m worried about Ruu as much as everyone is.”
The connection with Ruu hasn’t been cut off yet…I feel like its disturbed by something. If I overwrite the taming once more, I wonder if I can solve the magic…. Well, let’s just do it.
“Ah, father. This.” Lime
“Hmm? …Is this?” Tsuchio
Leaving, Lime handed Ruu’s choker. It seems that it was burned down by the fire blown out when Ruu´s magical power went wild. The cross section is also slightly deformed.
“Please give it back to sister. It was very important for her.” Lime
“Thanks Lime. I did not notice it and I was about to lose it.” Tsuchio
“Well then. Father, sister is also important to me…I absolutely won’t let the person who did this to elder sister escape.” Lime
“I have the same feeling. But first of all, we need to recapture Ruu. Do you understand?” Tsuchio
“I know. Well then, have a break.” Lime
Well, I have to write talismans quickly and prepare for tomorrow. Before that, I have to listen to the details of the strategy.
“Shadow-san, what happened? Eh, two important stories? Is it related to the operation of tomorrow? …I got it, then shall we talk in another room?” Tsuchio
What is the important story? There was never before a time where Shadow-san spoke that much. I wonder what it is all about, what on earth is that ….
Monster Musume chapter 97: Breakthrough
The next morning, many demons were gathered in the lobby of the building where we are lurking. Despite the fact that there aren’t many on our side, everyone has a certain style. I guess that the level of magic we have is high. Among us, Yukurishisu is especially different. She is supposed to be hiding her identity, but she stands on the top naturally. Surely, royalty has charismatic skills.
“Sorry, I let you wait.” Tsuchio
“I really waited…what were you doing?” Yukurishisu
“I was just making preparations… ” Tsuchio
“Are you ready, outrider? Do you need more careful preparations?” Yukurishisu
From around, many eyes look at me. Our party of human and demons are made of minotaur-like demons with heavy armor and other races. In fact, I’m the only human.
“Of course, I will take Ruu back. No matter how carefully prepared you are, it is not enough.” Tsuchio
“You said that yesterday, right? Since Tsuchio is impatient, you will be the outrider. Leave Ruu to us…” Yukurishisu
“I don’t like that.” Tsuchio
The line of sight from the surroundings get hard. If you look from the side, it’s just saying that I’m not skilled. From those who seriously want to manage this situation, they are nothing but obstacles.
“It is not the time to be selfish now, even a living idiot at only ten years old would understand. If you want to complain, first show your skill…” Toururi
“I know that. I just want to get Ruu back. For the time being, as I told you, I will do as you planned, but as soon as Ruu appears, I will definitely fight. I know Ruu the best.” Tsuchio
“You’re pretty confident, but aren’t you overwhelmingly inferior to Ruu?” Toururi
“Toururi-san knows it, too. I don’t decide to fight her with simple ability. I don’t know Ruu´s constitution but I am familiar with her.” Tsuchio
“…Can you win?” Toururi
“I will win, definitely. I cannot lose.” Tsuchio
“Well certainly, Ruu’s ability will be a threat to our final strategy…. It is certainly the best to make Tsuchio fight her. No one can decide the ability only by the amount of magical power.” Yukurishisu
“But…what do you do, older sister?” Toururi
“Do you know where Ruu is?” Yukurishisu
“I know it only vaguely, but I think it will be clear when I get closer.” Tsuchio
“…I understand. Ruu is a strong enemy and we are only a few people. We can’t spare much people. Let’s leave Ruu to Tsuchio and his familiars. Keep your word and beat her.” Yukurishisu
“Thank you very much.” Tsuchio
“Indeed, when it’s about Ruu, Tsuchio will become stubborn enough to do his own thing.” Yukurishisu
“Even if it’s not Ruu who has been manipulated, I would take her back. If I had been opposed here, I would have moved without permission.” Tsuchio
“I thought that would be the case, so I approved it. Well then…let’s go!” Yukurishisu
Wait, Ruu…as I promised that night, I will definitely return you to sanity!
With a formal arrangement of heavy equipped mercenaries in front and beside us, we push through the main street leading to the tower. Whether the other party was going to pass through here or not, a lot of ordinary people are walking around with knives or logs. I can’t do anything either physically or morally. There is no second time!
“We can run through at once! There is no help for a certain degree of injury, let’s push through and proceed!”
Reinforcement magic is applied to the people who are beside and in front of us and they don’t complain about minor attacks. Moreover, the opponents are ordinary citizens. No matter how heavy their body is, they aren’t professional mercenaries.
“Magic comes flying from the front! Perhaps it is the magicians at the tower!”
“Let’s put down the barrier! Magicians, ready to go…”
“Please leave it to me! Everyone, don’t slow down!” Tsuchio
Various kinds of magic approach from the front like fireballs, wind blades, and earth spears. I got on Rin and took a short distance to the party. I grab a lot of talismans from my sleeve.
“Rin, Nichrome! I will stop the monsters with my walls! Shoot down all the magics that are approaching! And don’t stop moving!” Tsuchio
I use both hands to throw some talismans into the sky. They explode and create a big wall, before the various magic attacks collide against it. A lot of holes are created by the impact and I quickly add more talismans to repair the wall immediately. I made a large amount of wall type talismans yesterday, along with offensive talismans!” I have also enclosed the walls and continue to move forward!
I seriously faced the magic without compromising on speed and proceeded forward. Occasionally some magic gets through the holes of the wall, but they are intercepted by Rin´s lightning arrows or Nichrome’s bullets.
“…Besides the commoners, there are still many people being manipulated or not? And why won’t they come out at all?”
“Are they arranged on other streets?” Tsuchio
“That can be so. Well, it’s convenient for us, so we don’t need to mind it.”
“There is absolutely not such a thing…. It was a small square around that tower, right? The enemy would only build a simple barrier there.” Tsuchio
“That possibility is high…splendid insight, Tsuchio.”
“No, I just saw the plaza.” Tsuchio
It is seen from the hole of the wall and wagons are lying down on the street end as a barricade and a wall is made by magic. On top of that, figures who look like marksmen or magicians are on the roof. If we get stuck, we’ll be shot from around the beehive. Indeed, it is difficult to defend an omni-directional attack.
“The heavy armored mercenaries should wait firmly. It is quite common for the general public…but is it dangerous to bring them into a battlefield?”
“I don’t want to make casualties as much as possible, but I know that I can not say that.”
“No, you cannot afford it. What do we do?”
“Break through one point of the entrance and after defeating the enemy, we defend ourselves by raising a defensive formation near the entrance. We can’t create a heavy burden, so we will crush the enemies with haste! Tyres, Toururi!”
The mercenaries are pushed to the side and Tyres and Toururi-san came forward. Will they destroy that barrier?
“As I said, I will proceed to the entrance of the tower at once! Destroy that wall!”
“Leave it to me!”
“Tsuchio, I’m begging you to cover us!”
The two of them moved forward. How could they break that wall like that? It’s a wall made of magic, so I think it’s quite hard. When I think so, the two of them changed. Every step of them becomes bigger by increasing the distance.
Their height grew in a moment and made them twice as big as before in an instant. It looks like their mass increased and the stone pavement remains clear. Magic is so amazing….
Both of them who became giants thrust into the barricades. The wall made of magic was shattered like glass and the wood wagons and the people on top were blown to the square. Without stopping the momentum, those two rush into the square. The person who is looking at its feet firmly or isn’t crushed are blown away. They went until the entrance near the front of the street, before they finally stopped. After going back and forth like that, it was like I’m breaking the Ten Commandments.
“We will thrust in like them!”
That’s where we are running. The magicians are left behind, but the half of the wall is moved backwards to prevent it. The path of retreat is buried within the people but… if you think about the last one standing, there sure is a lot of spirit.
“Father, where is elder sister?” Lime
“…There, inside this tower. It isn’t strong yet so I think she is further upwards.” Tsuchio
When the connection of magic was cut, I had no idea how to get it back, and was desperate…. This connection is the sign that Ruu left and will lead us towards her.
“Tsuchio, Ruu is inside!?”
“I guess that’s right, let’s rush quickly!”
“Of course! The rush squad will follow you going inside! The rest of us, will defend this entrance! The worst will be that we retreat to the middle, so don’t cause deaths as much as possible!”
The entrance has quite a big arch shape, which also shows the appearance of the inside. There seem to be no hidings and a lot of people are seen in the lobby. There is a spiral staircase inside with several entrances adjacent to it. Because the magicians are on the stairs, it seems to be aggravating from there.
“When entering from here, magic will fall down from the top… Even if we are supported by Tsuchio’s defense, the easiest way is to target from the outside, which is tough as expected.”
“Shall everyone hold their shields up and thrust inside?”
“The other side doesn’t mind being worried if the magic hits a friend. Will it grow bigger again? Oh, that stairway will not be able to rise.”
“Why isn’t it just a little smaller?”
We are preparing separately while thinking how the rush team is going to stick with us. Putting Lime behind me is firmly decided. I have to walk alongside Nichrome and I have a good idea of how to do that.
“Okay, I’ll leave the control of the barrier to you. Rin, let’s just run up. Nichrome can’t fly together, so just follow us properly, ok?” Tsuchio
“There is no problem, I will eliminate all obstacles and proceed forward.” Rin
“I can’t kill… so I will assist you as much as I can, but it will be painful to keep up.” Tsuchio
“That’s promising, Master…somehow, it’s as if the slime had eaten a great magic.” Nichrome
“No, I’ve already said that Nichrome is reliable… and that you have changed.” Tsuchio
I mean, it’s a reliable thing that she has feelings, right? Before, she was just saying that emotions are useless.
“I can’t throw off my emotions; now, I should use them effectively. If Master will assist me, my movement will be much easier. Also, there is a big change in stress value between being psychologically angered by your opponents and friends you can rely on…” Nichrome
“Yes, Nichrome is relieved as usual. Yukurishisu, please come with us as we are going first.” Tsuchio
“Tsu, tsuchio!? Don’t decide by yourself without permission…” Yukurishisu
“I’m telling you I will be the decoy! Because the bottom of them can not be minded, please break through them somehow!” Tsuchio
“Being a decoy is too dangerous, I cant permit that!” Yukurishisu
“It is not the time to say so! I am sorry for the time to talk like this, but I will go!” Tsuchio
Saying so, Rin, Lime and I rushed into the tower after setting a barrier. After that, Nichrome also follows.
“Tsuchio! Oh, I told you not to move on your own! There is no other way, everyone lets go!”
“Therefore, I told you to have him wait outside…”
“You won’t be disappointed if you regret it, we will break through while Tsuchio is the decoy!”
As soon as we enter the tower, a mass of magic pours from the top. The density is high because the range is narrow unlike the time when we progressed through the street. The talisman wall will be pushed to its limit sooner or later. But now, Lime and I are in Rin’s barrier. Because I control and concentrate her magic from the top, no matter how dense it is, it won’t tear easily. Magic which is aimed at Nichrome is also released, but she moves by sewing between the enemies and dodges it well. Well, I have to help Nichrome while heading up.
“Both of you, hold on tightly! From now on, it will shake!” Rin
“Yes, I won’t let off even if I die! Yeah, even if my body is going to die, my heart will always belong to father…” Lime
“That’s not what I meant! It’s not that I don’t want to be loved by Tsuchio!” Rin
Rin runs inside the tower and draws a circle. Nichrome opened the way with her gunfire and we reached the stairs. When we start going up, I made a wall with magic in front of me. All right, that’s my part! Nichrome cast a mark on the side. Then, a earth pillar extended from the stairs and made a road diagonally to the stairs. We move to the pillar immediately and go up as it is with Nichrome. Magic is released from the front, but I throw talismans again and create another route. Nichrome avoids the magic and heads up more and more. I’m afraid that the earth pillars will break, but as a safety measure, I used many talismans to make them more durable. It won’t be broken so easily.
“Father, a small powerful magic comes from the left back diagonally below!” Lime
Magic will collide with the barrier according to Lime’s warning. Strengthening the defense that magic will hit, a light impact will strike us and the barrier won’t break. It is hard to skip symbols while manipulating magical powers, but Nichrome is moving more severely. She has to help…!
“!! I found Ruu! She is directly over here…at the top! Hurry, Rin!” Tsuchio
“You don’t need to say that!” Rin
I feel it clearly…it is unnaturally quiet, but not particularly disturbed. Wait, I will go help now.
Accelerating Rin and Nichrome, we are completely separated from Yukurishisu´s party, but because of Nichrome shooting the magicians while moving, it would be comfortable for them to go up. Nevertheless, I have to concentrate on Ruu now. Before fighting, we need to encounter her with full power!
“Everyone, prepare for the battle with Ruu! …It’s almost time to warm up your body.” Tsuchio
And we reached the end of the stairs. Somehow, when approaching the end there was no enemy…. It seems to me that it is meaningless to the guy who will be here so far.
Rin walks down the stairs between the wall. Eventually, the stairs that were broken in sight entered the eyes. · · · Finally, did we reach Ruu’s former place?
“Are you all ready for this? First of all, it’s a preemptive victory.”
“I have no problem, the first leading role is Rin-chan.”
“Your magic is enough to make a blow with full strength.”
“I can also go. Well, are you ready for it, master?”
“…Yes, I can go anytime. Then, let’s go pick up the rampaging princess. Everyone, are you prepared for it?”
“Yes. My body belongs to father.” Lime
“Yes. My life is in Tsuchio hands.” Rin
“Of course. Use this body as you like.” Nichrome
『Yes. This force is yours.』Shadow-san
“…Thank you. Everyone, let’s return alive!” Tsuchio
After looking around at everyone’s faces, we rushed outside. The sight is a large hall and a red figure stands in the center. That person who was looking at us with emptiness set up her fists.
Thus, we will begin the battle with Ruu.
