Chapter 5: Trying Out Preventing the Ritual – Part 6
Diablo charged his magic .
──There is no conclusive evidence, but this place is suspicious . Let’s check it .
「O light, gather, 《Shining Lance》!! More! Even more!」
In his held up hand, a shining spear came forth .
It was a somewhat peculiar magic, and its activation was slow .
At first, it had the length of a javelin, but by pouring magical power in, this magic could be made bigger and increase its power and effect time .
The spear at the end of Diablo’s hand had doubled in size .
Reaching a length where it could reach the roof of a school building, rather than being called a handheld spear, it reached a size where it was like a siege weapon .
It was a battering ram .
Horun shuddered and backed away .
Diablo swung his hand down .
「Pierce through! Break it! 《Shining Lance》!!」
With this, if it was a miss, then the old unused well would end up being annihilated but……
An ear splitting scream resounded throughout not just the academy, but also throughout the Eleventh District .
The ground tore .
Diablo jumped back .
Horun also hurriedly followed after him .
「I told you to move back, didn’t I!」
「Something like this, was impossible to predict -ssu!」
The well was blown away by the magic . From the ground beneath it, something that seemed like an ashen snake appeared . However, it was excessively huge .
If it was a snake, then it had a size that seemed like it could swallow an adult whole .
Piercing its center, the 《Shining Lance》 remained pierced into it .
Again, the tear in the ground spread out, and they could tell that that thing wasn’t a snake .
It was a tongue .
What came out to the surface was a head that had the form of that of a human’s, and the thing from before was its tongue . Even just its tongue was gigantic enough for it to look like the soil at the bottom of the old unused well .
It had no skin .
Just like the anatomical model in that room in the old school building, its muscles, veins, bones, and internal organs were exposed .
It wasn’t just a gigantic head, even a body came crawling out .
Its skeletal structure was greatly different from that of the Races .
It had four arms, and six legs .
Its spine stretched out long like a snake, and the end of the tail was still within the hold .
Horun pointed at it and shouted .
「It’s a monster -ssuー!!」
「That is the Destruction God Europa . It seems to be incomplete though . 」
The Europa that appeared in the MMORPG Cross Reverie was covered in metallic scales .
Horun sent her gaze around at the surroundings .
「D, Danna! What about the students that had gone missing……!?」
Her voice trembled .
Diablo clicked his tongue .
As expected, it seemed that it was partially different from the game . So it was made more concise, more easier to understand, and more dramatic .
The magic rituals performed in this other world were more malicious, more abstruse, and worse indications .
Diablo clenched his fists .
「The Magician that called this guy from the next world……he didn’t gather some girls and offer them up as sacrifices……To this Destruction God that was called in a fragmented state──he offered up sacrifices one after another!」
「Th, then……the students that had gone missing are!?」
Give up on them──are the words that he swallowed down .
There was no need to expressly say them .
More importantly, dealing with this repulsive monster as quickly as possible took priority .
Diablo pulled the 《Tonnerre Empereur》 out from his pouch .
「Let us test out just how strong you are in this other world . Destruction God Europa, take this──《Grand Tornado》!!」
If it went just like the game, the enemy was of the Earth and Water element .
What was effective against it, was Wind .
With the force of a local typhoon, the atmosphere went berserk .
Europa screamed out .
*Bakin!* A sound that seemed like metal breaking was mixed in with the scream .
The magic storm vanished .
One of Europa’s four arms fell to the ground . It broke into pieces as if it were glasswork .
Diablo curved the ends of his lips .
「Hmph……Without your usual shield, it seems you really are brittle . 」
Maybe because it was in an incomplete state, even its extremely troublesome special action couldn’t be performed .
──Like this, I can overcome it!!
