Knights & Magic Volume 7 Chapter 103
Chapter 103 The young Sorceress, Fall
The Magius Jet Thruster that equipped on the Kasasagi blowing explosive flames from each part. Every time a powerful roar rises, Kasasagi and the young Sorceress has roar high into the sky after gaining the propulsion force.
While rotating around the goblin’s village, the young Sorceress is directing her line of sight at the center of the enemies.
“Flames, come forth (Igniadel)”
Along with the chant, a flame spews out from her palm. And while she raises her palm high, she looked carefully at the enemy with her four eyes.
Although Kasasagi hasn’t fully completed yet, the equipped Magius Jet Thruster is working in good condition. If he would like it, he even could have revealed Kasasagi’s extraordinary speed.
“We’ll go head on. Beat them as much you like”
“Understood, Magister Eru!”
The reason why he hasn’t done it until now is because he is still holding the young Sorceress who doesn’t have any experience in mobile fight. By deliberately made simple moves, Ernesti could make her able to aim easier.
Kasasagi raises the thruster output to take aim at the fake titans. When the Flexible Coat is opened, the appearance of young Sorceress has been revealed. She placed her palm and shoots a lump of flame at the fake titan.
The fake titan who just had noticed it, jumps into the sideway and caught the flame bullet on the foot. A powerful blast raises, blowing up the fake titan to the ground.
After receiving an attack which is different than before, a commotion ran through among the fake titans. Even though Kasasagi’s appearance was a bit bizarre, it’s not like it was a threat in the first place. Although, the moment titan’s child wakes up, it suddenly become dangerous.
Aiming at Kasasagi who soar high in the sky, the stones are being thrown. In response of that, Eru shoots them down with Snider Arms.
Although the rapid-fire magic which being shoot by Snider Arms were not enough power to deal with demonic beast, because of the composition is rather light, it was easy to turn around. With his skill as Knight Runner, he could unleash the intercept-type equipment which can’t be ignored by his opponent.
After Kasasagi flew away again, the fake titans began to bawl noisily, unlike before. They are unexpectedly sensitive about the fact they were being pushed back by the young Sorceress at this rate. And if that happened, they wouldn’t have accomplished their purpose. Therefore, they need to change their strategy.
When Kasasagi take a glance at the corner of its vision after finishing turns around to start attacking again, the fake titans were moving differently unlike before. The short and thick shell that covering their whole body. And the parts within the neck have opened one after another.
There was a black-hollowed space inside it. Also, the area around the neck has opened like a cave which is too strange to call it a mouth. Moreover, the fake titans were opening their back as well. The hollowed space can also be seen. Now, the fake titans have taken appearance like a shape full of holes.
From the deep of the hollowed space, a growling sound has leaked out. With the effect of the wind that flowing through the hollowed space, a low vibration sound had been made. Gradually the wind’s cry become stronger. And it has violently become something unnatural for a living being. In the end, the roar become too fierce and resonating through the forest.
“Hm! What is this sound!?”
“It’s not like they want to crush our ears at all”
Behind the frowned young Sorceress, Kasasagi is moving around its skull-faced neck and looking at the enemy condition. When the remaining sound is still reverberating, there are a number of presences that raise around the forest.
“Most likely, this should be something like a signal. Let’s be careful of enemy reinforcements”
For them who can survey the area in the sky, they should able to notice immediately. There’s an unnatural movement between the woods. All of a sudden, the trees are breaking from all over the place, and start to fall down. The forests’ screeches are gradually approaching the goblin’s village. There is no doubt, an existence more than duel class is the one who has caused it.
“They were calling their friend after all?”
“・・・・No. Look closely Parl. Do you really think they are their friends?”
When the young Sorceress look at the direction which Kasasagi pointed, she quickly bends over her neck. What they could see over there is a demonic beast that covered in fur and shell. A normal and common duel class demonic beast. Of course, their race is also different from the fake titans.
“Have they attracted to the sound?”
“I have a bad feeling about this. There’s no way if only one duel class demonic beast that comes here”
In regard of his word, another demonic beast has appeared from another direction. A quick four-legged demonic beast with a long arm and limbs. While the existing beast takes advantage, they’ve already come into the village.
Following after that, another kind of demonic beast besides them has begun to occupying the village while they are look at it.
“Parl, let’s change the strategy”
“What are you trying to do Magister”
“If we let the demonic beast gathering in one place. At this rate everyone in the village will be harmed!”
Kasasagi drops its altitude and land on the surface facing the fake titans and demonic beast. Protecting the back of the villagers where they had fled, and extending the Flexible Coat.
“Whatever to send the demonic beast away or defeat them. We don’t have any choice to run away anymore. Let’s face them here”
While they are talking each other, the presence of demonic beast has increased. Furthermore, the demonic beast didn’t even try to attack the fake titans. Without concerning what kind of species, but rather they were looked like protecting the fake titans instead. Thus, leaving Kasasagi as a sole foreign object that treated like an enemy.
“Magister, what with this number!”
“I know. Everybody in the clans will surely come here soon. Please bear it for a moment”
Even while they are talking like that, the demonic beast starts running to the Kasasagi’s direction. The ones who leading them is the long-limbs demonic beast. By taking advantage of their superior agility, they could strike into the enemy’s heart at once.
While they still have a range, the young Sorceress has released the barrage. When the demonic beast which has evaded the flying lump of flame with its nimble footsteps, they even increased their movement speed further. Closing to the Kasasagi’s last defense, and jumps.
The young Sorceress couldn’t able to make in time. Before that happens, Kasasagi has released the Snider Arms. Although it has small firepower, this is also one of magical attack. Aiming at the demonic beast that has fallen from the balance after taking the large amount of flame bullets, Kasasagi slammed it with its Flexible Coat. By pointing the sharpened tip, it swings with the inertia force. Also combined with the momentum from the demonic beast itself, which could deliver a deadly blow into the demonic beast neck.
Kasasagi activated the thruster, and takes distance from the dead demonic beast. When the Flexible Coat has opened again, the young Sorceress who just had happened to keep casting release the barrage. The flame bullet hits the ground, leaving a hole and the smoke dirt. At some extent, their movement has been slowed down.
“At this rate, we will be doomed!”
From the current battle so far, and the numerous enemies. More than anything, the young Sorceress mana reserve has begun to writhing down. Reminding her experience in battle is still green, she was rather doing well.
“With only Kasasagi, it seems it would be hard to deal with this number・・・・if we just had Ikaruga”
If Eru’s beloved machine has been completed, whatever one hundred or two hundred of demonic beast, surely it would be easy. However, there’s nothing to be said on this kind of situation. While embracing the bitterly moment, all he can do is doing his best for now. Kasasagi who has been scattering the Snider Arms barrage and focusing to keep the demonic beast away at once.
From the wandering group of demonic beasts, one kind of beast has jumped on them. It was a tough four-legged demonic beast that covered in a shell all over its body. This kind of demonic beast is superior in endurance, and known as powerful enemy among the duel class demonic beast.
“Coming from this kind of situation, it sure troublesome, huh”
“Magister! Let me!”
Without concerning to swipe the sweat, the young Sorceress began to cast a magic. But her concentration has reduced, and her breath is disordered. Unable to combine the script, leading her to take longer time than usual.
In the same time, the demonic beast was already before them.
Eru began to increase the Ether Ring Generator’s output.
At this rate, they couldn’t able to defeat them all, in the worse case scenario, the young Sorceress might be in danger.
“I’m fine with me. But・・・・!”
When Kasasagi escapes into the sky, surely the demonic beast will attack the villagers instead. Unlike Kasasagi, the villagers don’t have any way to fight against them. But, still. For Eru, his disciple is more important.
However. Beyond those options, something has appeared before them. A single shot of a flame bullet flies from the middle of the forest, aiming precisely at the side-face of the demonic beast. After being intercepted, the demonic beast has lost its bearing and fall down.
When the full of hatred demonic beast has raised its face, there is a sharpened armor on its field of vision. The Magius Jet Thruster operates in maximum output, and with armor that swings in a momentum, slayed the demonic beast’s life.
“What was that attack・・・・!?”
There’s a cry echoing from the forest.
That is not something which the fake titans would do.
“Why the beasts have gathered”
In there, a genuine titan. One of the titan’s clan; the Brave from the Kaellous clan was carrying the Silhouette Arms on his shoulder while leaking a complain full of doubts.
The place where the goblin’s village was ruined without anything can be seen. Not too long ago the clash between the fake titans and Kasasagi, and now there were filled with a large number of demonic beasts.
Without concealing his annoyance, the Third-eyed Seat of Brave has raised his weapon and commands.
“My fellow warrior of Kalleous Clan! The young Sorceress is here, go search・・・・!?”
The moment he turns around, his three eyes are opened in surprise. In the line of his sight, exactly the young Sorceress he was looking for——and the mysterious living being behind her.
That was wrapped around the young Sorceress body on her back. Trying to rotates the neck of the skull-face, and look at the brave. In the back of the hollowed eye, a faint light is dwelled.
There’s no such thing on this world that can be understood at first glance.
Or it was rather suspicious if existing in another dimension.
Obviously, it was already beyond the Brave’s comprehension.
“Curse you, show yourself!! Whatever who you are, give back our young Sorceress!!”
By following that, the Brave takes the Silhouette Arms——and aiming at the Kasasagi. Because of the result of his training, his sentence has quite becoming more intimidating. Although, it was better if his aim was not his allies.
“I see, this is not good”
After looking at the flame bullet that being released by the Brave, the young Sorceress shows her bewilderment face. How come, Brave. Before that kind of question will be revealed, a tight sensation from the back has pulled her away. Kasasagi activates the thruster, moved her away to avoid the flame bullet.
The rainbow-colored halo has brightened its radiance, and soaring into the sky. Following their trace, the Brave continues his barrage.
“Brave! Why you are attacking me!”
“I think he’s not attacking you Parl, but he was rather aiming at me”
She looks at her back. An unknown flying living being that supports her body in the sky. After looking at the unknown origin of horrific appearance, there’s no one that would think it was their allies. As a proof, the young Sorceress was also trying to attack at first.
“T-then let me talk with him! If so, I’m sure he will open his eyes”
“Sorry but, it seems we can’t approach him with that kind of temper”
When they look at it, the Kaellous clan’s members have appeared and challenged the demonic beast. By fully utilizing the Silhouette Arms and weapon, they were overwhelming the demonic beast.
Some of them chasing Kasasagi who had escaped into the sky while point out their Silhouette Arms. They are desperately trying to get back the young Sorceress by their own way. Even if they have approached them, how much time they need to persuade them.
“That’s why, I need to go rough”
“What are you trying to do?”
“I need you to persuade them”
Eru then operates Kasasagi, and took turns in the sky. Facing the Kaellous clan direction, and fly in a straight line.
After looking at the demonic beast (?) who had abducted the young Sorceress comes in his direction, the Brave smiles viciously.
“My fellow warrior, this is a chance! Open those eyes, and look carefully!”
The titans hold the Silhouette Arms, and shoot at the approaching Kasasagi.
When the flame bullet came flying, Kasasagi intercepted it from the other side. One group is the titans who started learning the Silhouette Arms’ usage until recently, and the other side is the strongest Knight Runner in Fremmevia Kingdom. There’s no way for them to not take head on after intercepting the flame bullet.
“I’m counting on you”
“Leave it to me!”
Then Eru has released the auxiliary arms that had been supporting the young Sorceress body. When the she leaves, Eru pressed her back. Within the momentum, her body went out from the Ether Ring floating field.
Feeling the wind resistance and the normal gravity, the young Sorceress has been thrown out into the sky.
“Gale, gather (Vent)”
The wind swirls on the reached-out palm, and ceasing the momentum. While she was slowing down, the young Sorceress went to the middle of the Kaellous Clan direction.
“Young Sorceress, great to see you are fine!”
In the end, the Brave spreads his arms and grab her. After confirming the safely of her appearance within his arm, he then deeply sighs of relief.
Aside from the Brave worried out figure, the young Sorceress turns her face to her clan members.
“Brave, and my fellow clan! I’ll explain latter but, that was my Magister mystic beast. It’s not an enemy!”
After hearing something they could not imagine, the Brave and his Servant look at each other faces.
“The goblin’s Braver, in that thing. Are you sure・・・・?”
“I’ve seen it with my eyes, and we exchanged words together. More importantly, we must defeat the beast around here. Our goblin neighbor will be harmed!”
The Kaellous clan’s members have gained sudden spirit after recovering their young Sorceress. There’s nothing that could concern them right now.
From the start, for the titan’s warrior who lives in this forest, this kind of duel class demonic beast was originally their prey. By facing battle after battle, plus after gaining new weapon called Silhouette Arms, they were overwhelming every demonic beast in this area.
As time passed, there are only fire and corpses left. As expected, when a place become titan’s battlefield, nothing such like goblin’s village could withstand that. It was truly miraculous for the villagers who had run away are nearly safe.
“Why does those beasts come to challenge us?”
“Unfortunately, I am and Magister couldn’t understand that. It just those unfamiliar giants who have called them”
In the same time, the young Sorceress has noticed something and rush to the place. She goes around the corpses that remain there, and confirming a certain fact.
“Gone. Those giant corpses are, not here・・・・!?”
What’s remained in there was only the demonic beast’s corpse——.
Okay, a lot had happened. To sum it up, I’ve got to lead a death march on my company’s behalf and ended with getting hospitalized because of excessive fatigue, I said I’ll be fine if I took some muscle training but gotten hurt myself instead. Meanwhile my phone got busted forcing me to watch some opera soap everyday, at least I have something to read I suppose. After leaving hospital, brought new phone and take considerable time to restore my old phone data (sadly, I forgot to send my document files to cloud),
Anyway, now I’m already fully recovered and I’m intent to take back the lost weeks. it has been nice vacation I guess, but time to roll out.
