Lisa came to an abrupt halt above and in front of the royal palace square. She landed on the roof of nearby buildings and lowered herself to peer into the square.
The resting place of the residents usually allowed to come and go was completely blocked off by the soldiers. It’s a very serious state of alertness.
(Although it’s rather convenient to save you the trouble of exorcising on the magic formula…)
*TLNOTe: I used exorcising as a means of exaggeration.
You need to get close to the target to set the Ice Stake. However, if we stand in the square, soldiers will come flooding in.
(When Charlotte-sama and Frey are ready–)
She does this right here until she finishes chanting, and as soon as she approaches the target, she activated her magic. At the same time, you will drive the breaking stake set up in the academy.
”This is Immortal Charl. Lisa, Frey, how’s the situation?”
This is Lisa, the square in front of the palace. Lisa informed her of the current situation and the plan she had just come up with.
“It’s Frey. I’m here. However, there are a few people here. More than just the grave robbers, the cleaners? There are close to fifteen people in the vicinity of this magic formula alone.”
“I’ve just arrived at the scene and there are a lot of people there. Frey, please evacuate the people nearby. I’m going to be a little rough on you all and get you away from your targets.”
“Do I need to be ready?”
“Yes. Lisa can activate her magic at any time—”
In the middle of the conversation, an explosion sounded. White smoke rised from the royal palace as Lisa turned her attention to it. And–.
”Charlotte-sama! It’s activated!”
A huge circular magic circle shone in the square in front of the royal palace.
”This one too. I don’t know what happened, but the activation conditions must have been met. Lisa, Frey, please start the operation!”
It activated, but there was a pause before it took full effect. Lisa flew out of there to reply. As she landed right next to the magic circle that was emitting light, with the guards panicking at the anomaly in the royal palace.
As soon as she announced it, several ice stakes appeared. Seventeen in number. The stakes shot down into the square from the edge of the emergence and pierced the magic circle. The ground shook. The sound of shattering shook the air. A cloud of dust obscured the light of the magic circle.
“(Huh?) Do you think it’s been activated over there? (It may or may not have been a challenge…?)”
A security guard man interrupted my thoughts.
“Oh, hey you! What did you just do? Something to do with the explosion at the palace—”
“Don’t come here!”
Something flew out of the dust cloud with an eyes on Lisa, who shouted.
There was no light in the depressed eye sockets, and the open mouth was all fanged and countless teeth. When Lisa ducked the rush with a backstep, the deformity closed its mouth with a crunch.
”What the hell is that thing!
”Is it a demon?’’
“I’ve never seen that before.”
It’s no wonder that the average citizens don’t know about it. Even the soldiers of the Royal Guard would not have met one.
An Elder Ghoul.
They are almost human in shape. Two limbs each and one head. However, its body is darkened and its neck is three times longer than an ordinary man’s. Its ears and nose have been shaved off. His ears and nose had been shaved off. They are the upper class of ghouls, also known as cannibalistic demons, the living dead.
However, there is a huge difference in strength between the top and the bottom. Unlike ghouls, which are slow moving and have only human-like arm strength, elder ghouls boast agility equal to or greater than that of a hellhound and physical abilities equal to those self-enhanced by a magic level 20 equivalent.
“That’s even more of a problem–”
”You! Did you summon them? Get everyone out of here!”
“No! Don’t get too close! If an Elder Ghoul bite you, you’ll be a Ghoul!”
While they can attack and devour people, they can also bite and increase the number of lower species. The enemy’s horrible plan is to unleash many Elder Ghouls and turn the royal capital into the City of the Dead.
A huge spear materialized in Lisa’s hand. A long, cone-shaped spear. It pierced the chest of a nearby demon.
His chest froze and gradually increased in range. However, it couldn’t hold its breath and stretched its long neck out to bite Lisa. Lisa dared to shove one hand into its mouth. Before its sharp teeth could reach the skin, it exploded with cold air and blew its head off. Finally, the Elder Ghoul is silent.
“I’ll take care of it here. Please evacuate.”
When she swung her giant spear to create a wind, the dust cloud disappeared.
The magic circle has stopped functioning. However, the demon that was born had not disappeared. If it was normal summoning magic, then the summoned beast couldn’t stay in shape when the magic formula was broken.
(Not modern magic. Something connected to ancient magic? Anyway, now…)
Lisa thrust her spear into the ground. As the magic flowed, a crack formed and circled around the outside of the Elder Ghouls.
A wall of ice grew out of the cracks. Eventually, it trapped a group of demons in a dome shape. In one place, there is a hole in front of her that is large enough for one of them to pass through.
If she closed them all up, they would try to break the wall. But, if there was a hole, they would rush in for that one. In fact, that’s what happened.
The tip of the spear is delivered to the head of one of them as it jumps out of the air. The head is shattered and collapsed in place. It doesn’t even twitch.
(Alright. If you break the head, you can take it down.)
However, my vision was distorted by the dullness.
(I had fired too much great magic without chanting. But–)
I couldn’t afford to go down. If even one of them was taken out, many of the inhabitants would be turned into ghouls. As a demon race, she doesn’t care if a stranger gets hurt.
(I’m sure Charlotte-sama will be saddened. So–)
They carefully destroyed the enemies that pop out one by one. The guards couldn’t even get close to the grisly work.
–This is the cathedral in the south area of the city.
In front of the majestic building is a park, with stalls lining the perimeter of the square. While there were many people on their way home from work, it was crowded with people close to the holiday.
Suddenly, a magic circle floats in the middle of the square and the area is in an uproar. However, the people of the king’s capital, who are too accustomed to peace, may not have much of a sense of urgency, but there was no one to run away first.
“It’s not safe there. Please run away immediately.”
No one moved when a girl in a fancy outfit told them that in the sky. Some even expected it to be a gala or something. Charlotte waved her walking stick.vA dark cloud loomed over the magic circle.
“I’m going to get wet!”
Large drops of rain poured down. The people below didn’t want to get wet and ran out of the magic circle. Charlotte doesn’t have the [Water] attribute. The magic that made the rain fall was due to the effect of the walking stick. The stick given to her by her brother Hart has some special effects, but it’s only enough to be used for fun.
She, herself, is still in its infancy and isn’t good enough to control the great magic. It was impossible to destroy the old summoning magic circle. However, she has a secret plan to keep.
(First step is clear. Now, let’s continue.)
A black shadow crawled out of the magic circle. It’s an Elder Ghoul. It’s impossible for Charlotte to stop them by herself. Before one demon after another appears and attacks people–. She thrust his hand into the four-dimensional pouch and threw the one she grabbed.
A small piece of cloth that was folded up. But, as it spread out, the area grew, and when it blew away the dark clouds and floated away, it was enough to cover the magic circle. At the center of it, a huge circular magic circle was drawn, too.
”Come! O Knights of Camelot!”
The magic circle shined. Something jumped out of it.
Crunch crunch crunch crunch crunch crunch–.
What landed on the ground were about fifty armed skeleton soldiers. In the center of them, one of them raised his sword and shouted.
”We, the King’s guard of Camelot. We have responded to your summons!”
It’s Johnny, commanding an army of Knight Skeletons, a wing of the Round Table Knights.
We need to support the elimination of the enemy Elder Ghouls and their friends and the evacuation of all residents.
“As you wish. Delta, Echo, spread out and keep the people away. The rest of them–purge!”
With a roar, the sound of clicks and snapping teeth rang out. The skeletal soldiers charged forward, forming a formation faster than the confused Elder Ghouls could attack. However, the Elder Ghouls appeared one after another.
You will be able to see that they are not the only ones who have the ability to do this. Naturally, this was within Charlotte’s expectations.
(TLNote: the chuunibyo knows how to do the chuunibyo work seriously XD)
From the large cloth floating in the sky above, another huge shadow fell from the large cloth. It’s not just a matter of time before you get to the point where you can get your hands on it.
”Gigan, please destroy the enemy summoning magic circle.”
Not paying any attention to the Elder Ghoul who had bitten his leg, Gigan crossed his hands and swung up. His fist glowed.
At the same time as they swung down, the skeleton soldiers jumped up. The earth shook with a thud.
“I’m not going to be the only one who can do this. The people around them couldn’t stand and fell on their asses.”
”Even if you destroy it, the demons won’t disappear. Is it different from a normal summoning magic circle? Anyway…”
Charlotte gave the order. There are about 60 left. Then, ladies and gentlemen, it’s time to clean up the overrun! The giant golem and the elite of the skeletal soldiers responded with a roar – a roar resounded.
