Mile Chapter 324: Death Struggle 4
In parallel with Pauline’s hot magic attack,
Rena was also unleashing her anger and hatred toward the enemy.
『… Burn our enemies … Dragon Flame Grenade!』(Rena)
And a Flame Grenade appeared right next to Rena.
Different from Pauline’s high-speed attack, the mass of flame was flying towards another Ancient Dragon with slow speed.
『Just a mere magical bullet, my barrier will be more effective against magic than (physical) real attack』(AD) (T.N: this world doesn’t have physics concept yet)
Contrary to what the Ancient Dragon said, the Flame Grenade kept flying straight, although its speed was slowed down for a moment.
The Ancient Dragon swung his tail quickly to destroy the Flame Bullet, but before the tail hit, the Flame Bullet split. And as it is, a piece of Flame Bullet hit the body of the Ancient Dragon.
『Hmm, something like this is nothing for my scales…』(AD)
If it’s such a small magic bullet, he can easily repel it with his scales and outer skin strengthened by magic.
It was supposed to be so, but the Flame clung to his body and didn’t disappear.
『Ku~u, this is…』(AD)
Even if he shook his body or removed it by hand, the flame would not disappear. On the contrary, it clung to his hand and the flame spread throughout his body.
The Ancient Dragon made a water ball with water magic and dropped it on his body.
『Why, why won’t it disappear?』(AD)
This magic was fundamentally different from Fireballs and Flame Bullets, which are ordinary fire magic that produces flames.
On Earth, it’s a combination of naphtha, crude gasoline, and a thickener to add viscosity (naphthenic acid and aluminum salt of palmitic acid extracted from palm oil) Napalm bullets, which are made of a mixture called 『Napalm』
But they were created by magic with reference to materials of this world similar to it, and it was difficult to get it off after it stuck on you. It was a frightening greasy incendiary whose fire didn’t extinguish even when you applied water… In other words, it’s not a magic bullet, but a real (chemical) bullet.
『Fu~n (snicker). This me is a magic genius.
Did you think that I didn’t have a countermeasure against the opponent that I fought against once?
Do not look down on humans!』(Rena)
『U~ga, a~ga~ga, gyo~ee~e!!!』(AD)
『Uwaa, hot~ hot~ hot~ HOT. Burning~ burning~ burning~ my scales are hot, my body is burning…』(AD)
There is no other word that is appropriate for such a scene.
The Ancient Dragon desperately rolled around the ground to extinguish the flame that burned his body.
However, it just made the flame spread around with severe pain.
And the last of them still fainted with white eyes, he still couldn’t move. However, he is still a dragon with strong vitality, so he is probably not dead yet.
Then when Rena and Pauline began chanting their next great magic.
The Ancient Dragon, who was rolling around due to Pauline’s attack started moving.
He suppressed the severe pain for a moment, he rushed toward Rena and Pauline and raised his tail.
Rena and Pauline, who are slow and vulnerable to close combat, can’t move in time. They only just started casting magic, they wouldn’t made it in time nor they could switch to other magic.
The two girls just stood there and stared at the tail swung down towards them.
A tail fell in front of the two.
…Of course, it was no longer connected to the body of the Ancient Dragon.
『Secret EX True God Speed Slash, Third Form, “Dragon Slayer Slash“』(Maevis)
『『Maevis!!』』(Rena + Pauline)
Rena and Pauline rushed to Maevis, who laughed happily and showed her white teeth.
I was really happy to make it in time for the show…』(Maevis)
And Maevis ruined the cool skill name and scene with her honest words.
『A…ah, your… your arms! What’s with that arm?!』(Rena)
Because Pauline was stunned looking at Maevis’ left arm, Rena asked that instead…
『With the power of friendship, the knight’s body is immortal!』(Maevis)
Rena smiles with a happy face. Tears overflow from Pauline’s eyes.
And Pauline said ruthless words.
『For now, let’s finish the Ancient Dragons first. We can talk later…』(Pauline)
The Ancient Dragon whose tail was cut off rolled around again, this time he screamed “no tail! There is no tail!!“. He desperately screamed and looked confused, but no one knows when he might attack again.
Certainly, the risk factor should be eliminated quickly.
『Now, Let’s finish them with magic…』(Rena)
Taking a glance at Mile, who came out of the cover after Maevis, Rena said so.
『Wait, please! Let me confirm their intention of surrender. I beg you!』(Beldetes)
Beldetes, who was watching the battle a little away, hurriedly rushed in.
『The winner is clear!
If all three of them surrender, I want you to spare their lives!』(Beldetes)
Certainly, killing these three now doesn’t make much sense…
Rather, the situation is likely to get worse as the Ancient Dragon Clan will hold a grudge.
There should be many Ancient Dragons in the Ancient Dragon clan. Even if the girls reduced the number of them by three, their fighting power wouldn’t change much. It might be better to spare their lives to avoid the grudge.
In addition, maybe because Beldetes intended to do this negotiation role, he accompanied the other three as a guide and didn’t get involved in the battle. It’s worthy of admiration as a young man to endure the verbal abuse from his friends and accompany them to save their lives.
… Although he may have called himself as Youngman, he is probably several hundred years old.
Rena looked at everyone and confirmed everyone’s intention.
『…Can’t be helped.
Well, if all of them acknowledge a complete defeat and promise never taking any action against us, I will spare them. Don’t miss it, understand?』(Rena)
『Thank you! Wait a minute!』(Beldetes)
And then, Beldetes managed to get the consent of the two who rolled around and crying.
『One of them has no consciousness, so please be patient.
Since he was already about to be killed, please consider that he surrendered.
Three of us will surely convince him later.
If he doesn’t agree, we swear that we will take responsibility.』(Beldetes)
Since the other two are still rolling around while spilling here, Rena’s group is okay with it.
Besides, it’s unlike that the third one will try to fight alone after listening to the results of his friends’ fights.
If he doesn’t get healed with healing magic soon, even a rugged ancient dragon will be in danger.
『Then… eliminate impurities in the body, Disassemble!
Healing power, repair body damage, heal wounds …』(Mile)
Mile removes capsaicin from Pauline’s victim and then heals the first Ancient Dragon with healing magic.
The victim of Pauline only needs to remove the capsaicin. As for physical damage, except for the tail that has been cut off, he only got some bruises, and the Ancient Dragon can cure himself with his healing magic.
On the other hand, although he is a sturdy and strong Ancient Dragon, with his breathing is still stable, the first Ancient Dragon was in a terrible state so he had to get treated. Especially, it was quite a thing that the viscera protruded greatly after being cut by Mavis. As a result, Mile seriously focused on healing magic.
Rena’s victim can be healed by removing the sticky flammable material with an enhanced version of Rena’s body-cleaning magic, and Pauline’s healing magic on the burn.
Like a cluster bomb, it was divided into many parts, but each one wasn’t a large amount of burning agent. But when he rolled around, the burn spread further on the surface area of the Ancient Dragon. The heat hasn’t reached the internal organs. So, if he didn’t panic, there was no need to worry about his life now that the fire is gone.
However, it would have been dangerous if the fire continued to burn.
Anyway, the Ancient Dragons seemed able to escape from the crisis of death and other grave aftereffects.
… except for their mental sequelae (trauma /PTSD).
Only Post battle left.
