Chapter 23: Weak type
Editor: m33b00 & Jae
In conclusion, the battle ended in ten seconds.
First, I avoided the Minotaurs’ axe swung down, then ran around behind him.
Leaving him to knock up soil with his attack.
“Gu~, so fast!” (Minotaur)
Even if you beat him or kick, it will not have much effect with that muscle, he can also resist wind magic.
So, I used my blood as a weapon.
For a vampire, it’s an easy thing to do, you only need to use your nail to cut lightly on your finger.
Then, change the overflowing blood, turning it into a long chain.
I remembered a member of the「Terrier Bandit Troupe」, Chihuahua the-chain-and-sickle.
I had no technique like him, so I just wrapped the Minotaur in the chain I made.
Aiming for his arms, feet, and the rest of his body.
I used my speed to wrap the Minotaur up, restraining him.
“Okay, Chain-san, please tighten.” (Arge)
The weapons I create with my Blood-Arms skill can be moved without touching them to a certain extent.
Preparing the Blood-Arms skill takes a while, but the skill itself is strong.
I finish rolling up beef in no time.
No, this is not a matter of being rolled up in meat, the meat is wrapped up, so it’s a bit different?
(ED: I think she’s making a food joke, but I don’t have the raws, so can’t check what food she’s talking about.)
Anyway, the battle was finished without any problems.
“Ku~tsu … human being! You plan on poaching our forest!” (Minotaur)
The eyes of the bull glare at me, as they’re wrapped up in my chains.
Even though my chain bound him tight, he doesn’t seem to have injured.
Yes, he completely misunderstood me.
…He is such a troublesome bull. Well, he is only a bull.
Since I’m misunderstood, it’s a bother, so I’ll have to explain.
“Well, first of all, I am not a human being. I am a vampire. Please look, see my fangs and ears ?” (Arge)
“Nu… but it’s still morning…” (Minotaur)
“Either in the morning or in the day, I’m still okay because of my sunshine resistance.
And another thing, I’ve only taken a nap here and I don’t think I want this forest.” (Arge)
“…Really? You’re not a poacher?” (Minotaur)
“I have no trouble with money, I do not need poaching.” (Arge)
As evidence, I pulled out just a small portion of the money I earned in Arlesha.
“… about that.” (Minotaur)
“I am really sorry …” (Minotaur)
“…the tone changed?” (Arge)
“I’m sorry, I was a little sick of poachers, I’m sorry… I want you to forgive me…” (Minotaur)
The atmosphere suddenly changed and he apologized.
His voice is very low, then it turned from that threatening low pitched voice to the high voice of a boy.
Honestly, it does not suit you at all, but it’s a cute voice.
So, he thought I was a poacher, a monster, or a demon, I guess the peace of this forest is protected… by him.
It sounds like a hard position. I do not need such a thing.
Since the misunderstanding was solved, for the time being, I recover my money and then releases Blood-Arms. The chain turns into red smoke, then disappeared.
Blood that has turned into a weapon will not come back. If you release it, then you lose it.
“My finger… It’s still a little painful… That’s it …I am a vampire, Argento vampear … Arge is fine.” (Arge)
“Minotaur Oswald, I’m the guardian of this forest” (Oswald) (オズワルド: Ozuwarudo)
“It’s Minotaur! Nee-san, Nice to meet you!” (Oswald)
“No, nee-san is a bit…” (Arge)
“Well then, how about Arge nee-san?” (Oswald)
“Ah… please do as you like…” (Arge)
I decided to let him call me what he likes because denying it is troublesome.
Since I’m originally a man, being called that is a little uncomfortable, but since I’m physically a girl now, he’s not wrong.
Again, I look at Oswald-kun after I let him out of my chain skill.
He is really big. He’s black, and he’s very stinky.
“Excuse me for a moment” (Arge)
“Become neat” (Arge)
Honestly, he smells so bad that it’s painful just talking this close to him, so I’m cleaning his body.
Recovery magic to remove dirt removes the filthiness from his body immediately.
The drifting smell wrapped in the refreshing wind of the forest and disappeared together with the flies.
He still smells like a cow but he is already cleaned, so it is just his body odor. I decided to endure.
“You should take better care of yourself.” (Arge)
I thought it was impolite to force the subject, but I have to do something.
I don’t expect him to be as flashy as Samaka-san, but I want him to be a little cleaner.
Because it’s painful that he can’t even breathe through his nose.
The stinky smell a while ago is because he has not properly cleaned himself.
There is no choice if the smell is his body odor but with this, he’s good to go.
Oswald-kun opens his mouth for a long while. He seems very impressed.
“Amazing… Arge nee-san, who are you? Just now, you used a high-level cleaning magic that only unicorns can use, right?” (Oswald)
“I’m just a passing-by vampire.” (Arge)
“I try to attack such a gentle person, I… I… Arge nee-san! If you want anything please let me know!” (Oswald)
Well then, I thought ‘I want to get fed’.
But Oswald-kun’s a Minotaur.
He is just a walking bull.
It does not look like he has any economic power or anything, and he’s fighting poachers to protect the forest.
That means, it is very possible that he will be very busy and eventually die.
Besides, body odor is my weak point. It’s not a very good combo. Oswald-kun, if he shrinks that body of his, he would be a little cute, but I don’t think I want him to feed me.
…Mentally, I’m a man.
I’m trying for a normal first. So, I’d prefer a girl.
Though, if the partner is good enough, I will even consider a man.
Apart from that, Oswald-kun apologizes, but what should I do?
I guess it is better to get blood here.
He looks like a cow, but his blood should work.
I don’t have any blood-sucking impulses yet, but it may not be bad to have supplies…
Since I’m not hungry for blood, mostly, I want to be brought to the border, but since he’s the guardian of the forest, he will not be able to leave the forest…
I guess it would be fun if I could ride on the shoulder of that muscled body but…
…Ah, I see. It’s a vehicle.
“Well, may I make a request?” (Arge)
“Please, anything!” (Oswald)
“Do you have horses around here?” (Arge)
Because I don’t want to walk, I need something to ride.
Just like when I took a ride on Zeno-kun’s carriage.
Even if there is no saddle, I can still ride a horse and buy one in the next village.
Let’s procure horse in this forest. I want a small horse that I can sleep on its back.
