I continued to abuse my body with intense pain as I kept on dancing, swerving around between the two monsters. The price for doing so was my life. I dodged the wolf’s fangs with a paper-thin gap, parried the sword attack from Xellos Reed, and I ended up vomiting blood.
We were almost even in terms of speed – no, was the wolf faster than me? I was overwhelmingly defeated in terms of offensive power, and our defensive and regenerative powers were not even on the same plane. However, there were several factors that have allowed us to still fight.
For one, Xellos Reed was still fooling around. He still dared to take advantage of our intentions to enjoy the thrill of battle.
Furthermore, the wolf’s movements were somewhat awkward. The speed at which it moved was tremendous, but the fluidity of the movements were slightly off sync. Apparently, he didn’t have a perfect handle on his body.
However, the biggest factor in play was the difference in experience. I was sure that both Xellos Reed and the wolf would be very strong innately. However, there was a slight tendency for them to move too intuitively. Only with enough experience could one counter such instinct.
The fight proceeded as is. They both kept watch of each other’s movements and anticipated how the other wanted to move and where they were aiming.
I continued the battle solemnly, wearing out my nerves and straining my brain.
“Ah! Damn it! Drop dead already!”
Neither of them look tired at all. I hated it. Whereas, here I am, already exhausted and in extreme pain, and I couldn’t seem to manage it. But we can’t leave any stone unturned. Even a slight shake will kill me in no time.
“Hah… hah… hah…”
“Old hag! Are you getting tired already?.”
“Hmph. Even if I was tired, you can’t seem to capture this old hag?”
I tried to provoke him, trying to keep him from turning his attention to Fran and the others, but he exerted the last of his strength. However, the equilibrium that was just barely being maintained was suddenly shattered from an unexpected source.
The steel wolf let out a loud scream and collapsed on the spot. His body fell like sand, in tatters. What happened?
Xellos Reed and I didn’t agree on anything, but once we distanced ourselves, we both stopped to observe the steel wolf. No, it was no longer a steel wolf. For the form had completely crumbled and disappeared, and was now a mere lump of metal.
But the collapse has not stopped. In fact, it accelerated.
After the steel wolf crumbled and disappeared, Fran’s sword was left lying on the ground. It was a shabby sword with cracks all over, as if on the verge of being discarded. The red aura and black magic power previously emanating from it had already disappeared, and one would even start to wonder if this was the same sword that had a vicious presence that seemed to rival the divine sword just now.
This one really seemed to have stopped moving. I couldn’t feel any magic from it. He was probably dead by now. That left us with Xellos Reed. I was thinking that I had to keep this guy down, but then Xellos Reed looked bored and released his stance.
“Oi, why do you put your sword down?”
“What? It’s boring, it’s no longer interesting. The old lady would be incapable of fighting in a heartbeat if left to her own devices. Then it would be better if I-”
“I won’t let you!”
“Oh? You’re still fine? But your speed is obviously slowing down…”
That is a given. The pain was so intense and dizzying that it’s a miracle how I could still move my legs any longer. But I will not let him go beyond any further.
I didn’t care about the future of the Black Cat Tribe, the future of the Beast Kingdom, or anything else. But those girls. I will not those young children, who share the same blood relations with me, be subjected to this.
What is it? I hear someone’s voice. Is this a telepathic conversation?
(Who are you?)
“I’m Master. This is the first time I’ve ever had a conversation with you. Well, I had a one-sided conversation with you before though.”
(Why? Where are you in the first place?)
“Right in front of you. That’s me, the sword lying on the ground right now. I am an intelligent weapon.”
However, if that was the case, then it indeed made sense why it ran out of control because of the mad demonization skill. You never know what life had in store for you, who would have known that I would meet a legend at the edge of death.
(Telepathic talk is helpful.I can’t even open my mouth anymore.)
“Kiara. First, release Senka Jinrai (TL Note : In the raw it’s written 閃華迅雷) Otherwise, in a few minutes–‘
(No. As soon as I unleash the Senkai Jinrai, I’ll end up getting cut down..)
“But … you’re really going to die if you don’t!!”
I was told I was going to die. Even though I was aware that it was true, I feel relieved. That Fran wasn’t alone anymore.
Quina also has a father who loves his daughter in his own way, although he is a snot-nosed boy.
But what about Fran? The other black cat people would not be able to keep up with Fran. If I died, she would be alone, wouldn’t she? That’s what I thought, but I guess she has a good partner.
We only had a mere ten seconds of conversation, but I could ascertain that the owner of this telepathic conversation was a person with a firm heart. With this guy, Fran won’t be lonely.
Now I can put my life on the line without a care in the world.
(This old lady is already nearing her grave. Can you help me use this little bit of life I have left?)
“……I see. I understand. Then can you lend me that little bit of life? To defeat Xellos Reed.”
(Fuhahaha, that’s good, fine! Then what do you want me to do? Use the rest of my life as you see fit!)
“First of all–”
