Chapter 18: Vampire does not work.
“What …!!?” (Abyss Call)
「Abyss Call」 leaked out a scream in surprised.
The reason is simply that the 「Pisces」 disappeared.
It would be surprising if the object which was about to sink now suddenly disappears.
A group of tentacles lost sight of the opponent to crush, penetrated the sea, and make a loud splash.
As a result, the sea is raging but that was all.
For myself, I look down from the sky literally the way the ⌈Abyss Call⌋ looks around in a hurry.
As for how I escaped, it is easy to do.
Just store the Pisces, clothes and the megaphone in the Blood Bag,
change the body using the bat form skill and fly away quickly.
Even if I become a small bat, it does not change that I’m really swift.
I flew as fast as I could through the gaps between the falling tentacles and escaped to high altitude.
… Tentacle play is kinda…
Squid’s tentacles are thicker than my body.
so I will be crushed before playing,
but whatever it is, I do not care.
There is something hanging on my body now after becoming a bat.
Only this thing cannot be stored in the Blood Bag.
Even if the skill level is 10,
it is absolutely impossible to store as a characteristic of skills, so it has been carried out for a long time.
To avoid dropping it, flying away carefully yet quickly was terribly troublesome,
but it was unavoidable because it was necessary.
After taking a sufficient altitude, it’s time to end this battle.
Exposing the naked body is cold and unbearable,
but you can solve it if you take out clothes from the Blood Bag and wear it.
Although by wearing it, it does not mean you have put it on as you normally would.
Blood bag is a skill that stores goods in my blood.
Blood circulates throughout the body,
and I can withdraw goods from the place I wanted, except for the hair and nails that don’t have blood vessels.
Since the presence can pass through skin, I do not need to get scratched to shed blood.
Thus, clothes can be appeared from inside of my body, and a change of clothes was completed automatically.
Naturally, if you release the bat form, my body that has lost its wings is caught by gravity and falls to the sea.
However, since I flew to a fairly high position, there is a sufficient time until I fall down, sufficient enough to eliminate that squid.
“Where!? Where have you gone?” (Abyss Call)
The Abyss Call which gives a hysterical voice and swings tentacles randomly.
It spits oil far and frustrated.
Looking at such a squid, I kept pulling on the leather belt.
What I had worn on my body all the time.
There is a big water bottle that is hung on the end of the belt.
I opened the lid, It was a thing that we all know.
… It is blood.
I asked Samaka-san to collect a little bit of blood from the soldiers.
That’s what the water bottle contains.
Yes, only blood can’t be stored in a Blood Bag.
Even with the skill of an effect of “preserving the existence and preserving indefinitely”,
we cannot overthrow this premise.
You can’t mix blood with blood.
“Blood Arms” (Arge)
It is easy to do.
Sprinkle blood into the sky and chant the spell.
It is not troublesome, it is really simple.
The ability of Blood Arms as the words suggest conjures weapons produced from the blood.
The higher the skill level, the bigger the weapons can be conjured with less amount of blood.
If the level is maximum, from just a drop of blood you can even make a sword.
This is one of the given skills.
I never tried using the ones that Loli-gramp recommended and it isn’t chosen by myself.
Blood sprinkled in the air expands by completely ignoring the original mass.
While shaping, it solidifies.
It establishes as a definite solid weapon, and not a liquid.
To kill a squid of that size in one try, it is necessary to have a weapon long and sharp enough to penetrate that big body.
As I begin imaging it, the weapons begin to appear.
The form chosen is a three-pronged spear.
The reason is simple.
Because it is the spear-like weapon used by fishermen.
The prey is a creature of the sea, so this is fine.
Almost 5 meters from the tip of the head to the bottom of the handle.
Naturally, the thickness is also reasonable.
Weight is also important, so it has to be heavy enough.
Totally, thirty tridents were created with one bottle of blood.
They deployed in the air and hover there for a short amount of time as they turn around so that the three prongs face towards squid.
As a characteristic of the high-level Blood Arms, there are things that can be moved without touching.
It is a perfect character for the current situation.
If you give a little boost, gravity will guide you towards your goal.
(T.N: Try to imaging Gilgamesh uses “gate of Babylon” with 30 tridents)
…He is indeed a bad squid.
That town is so warm and it is perfect for a nap.
It will become nothing if you break it.
Although I have to leave that place after this, from now on, various people will definitely come and take a nap over there.
You have no right to break that happy time.
I do not care about what kind of reason the squid had to attack.
I just do not want it to be crushed, the town that is perfect for a nap.
And it’s also a little repayment to everyone living there.
But that squid.
He doesn’t care about my circumstances, nor does he even want to talk but rather attack instead.
So, you don’t want to listen to people and do as you please?
I will do the same then, let’s finish this quickly.
I want to take a nap as soon as possible.
“… It is really a good town” (Arge)
Port town, Arlesha.
The climate is good, the sea breeze is comfortable, the fish is delicious.
A nap that smelt the scent of the sea breeze was the best,
and there were abundant foods other than fish as a trading town.
There was a former Kingdom Vice Captain, who was too serious, but helped an unknown vampire and offered blood and bed.
The lord of the town is fond of women, has no sense in fashion, and is misunderstood as a handsome player but he is also a competent lord.
Samaka-san keeps the town of Arlessa peacefully and above all,
he is a man who is laughed at by the townspeople and he is not angry with it.
This just means that the people around me live happily and have enough fun to laugh.
It’s a really nice town.
This town is protected by people in this town.
It is not protected by a lazy person like me,
it can only be protected by people in this town.
What I am doing is just a little boost.
It is just a little thing that the lazy vampire like me can do it.
The people of this town have the power to defend themselves.
“Well then, everyone, please protect your town.” (Arge)
With the boost, thirty tridents may penetrate the squid body.
More than that they were accelerated by being pulled by gravity.
Even if I do not do anything,
they can knock down the squid because they are made from the blood of everyone.
I’m just boosting it.
I do not work nor do I want to work.
The flock of tridents will pick up the speed as they fall.
Eventually, they reach enough speed.
“Hmm … what the… !?” (Abyss Call)
It is already too late when he noticed me.
Like a lot of ships that you have sunk so far, many remaining pieces of the broken ships are floating in the sea.
Just because of your selfishness, just disappear.
“Sayonara” (Arge) (T.N: Goodbye)
Add a word of farewell with many falling tridents.
While seeing that Abyss Call is penetrated into the sea,
I change my body back into a bat.
I flew away from the spot after confirming that the squid’s large body sunk and faded to the bottom of the ocean.
… I did not feel well.
If you think about it properly, all the blood that Samaka prepared for me could have been mine.
Since I became a vampire, I have already drunk blood several times.
It is no surprise that blood-sucking is frown upon and “out of common sense”
but it is rather interesting to taste the blood of other people besides Felnote-san.
Mixed blood in which the blood of various people was blended.
I was looking forward to it as a snack. I’m really sorry.
I sigh because I can’t do it right now with the bat from and I flew off, leaving Alesha behind.
… It’s pretty tiring to fly.
It will stand out if I got on the Pisces,
so I’ll have to fly with this even if it is troublesome.
Since atomization and shadowing are slow to move,
this is the earliest and not conspicuous.
Oh. I want to get back to where there is the ground soon, to lie down and take a rest.
The sun will set soon.
It’s almost night, that is, it’s time to go to bed.
I want to take a day off.
Because it is a time zone when the vampire gets active in the night.
Really? But the only thing on my mind now is getting some sleep.
