Chapter 142 – Part 2


Translation: Kazuya
Editor: Weasalopes


After defeating the Salamander, Zuiun’s Mp was full, and it starts shooting flames this time.
A medium power attack.
But it can’t do much because of its low level.
Its MP went down by half just after 4 shots.
Well, it can’t be helped.

The Kobold starts approaching to attack Zuiun.
But the attack doesn’t hit.
Or rather the attack hit but there weren’t any damage.
Their weapons just pass through it.
And Zuiun starts to recover MP.
Sucking.
Sucking all the Kobold’s MP.

It’s a nightmare.
For the Kobold it’s nothing but a nightmare.
After killing them all, Zuiun MP has only decreased a little.
What a guy.

But there’s a problem.
Its movement is slow.
It’s even slower than Jericho.
However, it uses the same method of movement like Rig.
Rather than sticking, it’s covering.
There is no problem in moving even when it’s covering me.
Since it has no weight at all.

But the biggest problem would be HP recovery.
Potion can’t be used.
And recovery spell wasn’t so good.
No, Fire Heal worked.
At first when using Earth Heal, it didn’t even recover 10% of its HP.
I used Light Heal next but it didn’t recover anything.
And I used Fire Heal after, and it recovers it HP almost till full.

It seems to be kind of picky.
I haven’t tried but, would it also dislike Wind Heal and Aqua Heal?
But I think Dark Heal would work too.
Since Zuiun is both Dark and Fire attribute.
So it must be because of this.

I continued using Call Monster and attract another Kobold flock.
This is going to be interesting.

It’s the matchless Zuiun time to shine.
My target has already been locked.
Kobold Shaman and the spirits.
It will be dangerous if Sylph, Undine or Gnome were to appear.
Especially Undine.
With just one attack, Zuiun’s HP will drop below 60%.
But that is the only place I have to focus.

Kobold Shaman is easy to kill even if the person wasn’t me doing it.
The Spirits are the strong ones.
They are hard to kill unless when using spells.
Zuiun also takes priority in killing the Spirits first.
It has become a really flashy battle.
Flames, dark bands were all fired at the spirits.
Once its MP depleted, it will stuck onto a Kobold and recover MP.
Which make it easy for me to finish them off.

Undine is probably the strongest summon spirit by the Kobold Shaman.
Its body makes it hard for fire to get through.
Dark attribute special attacks works, but when countered by it, the damage is quite large.
Well, you can just leave dealing with the Undine to me.

Well the ones having a bad time will be the Kobold flock when there’s no longer a Kobold Shaman.
It can’t be helped.
Zuiun can single handedly annihilate them all.

Matchless Zuiun.

If i was a monster that can only deal physical attack and have no attribute i will be done in.
Scary.
I’m glad we are a team.

I have confirmed Zuiun’s abilities, so let’s hunt for real now.
This time I will try combinations that work well with Zuiun.

Our condition was great.
But maybe because of this I let my guard down.

I continue in pursuit of Kobold into the depths of the forest, but there were no more monsters around.
I have no choice but to return in the direction of the Shrine.

The leading Tigris and Creep suddenly disappeared in front of me.
Huh?

At that moment, I felt discomfort coming from behind.
An arrow was stuck in my shoulder.
What?
Jean caught something moving.
The number is 6.

Is this.
PK?

I have no time to look at the markers.
I already know that I am surrounded.
Three shadows were heading for me and Bunraku.
Let’s concentrate on that.

Bunraku receive a tackle and rolls over.
And the two other shadows are approaching.

「Practiced Spirit!」

I buff myself instantly.
Select and spell and start casting.
I equip the Staff of Torture to support Bunraku.

Creep that has disappeared came onto my shoulder.
Is it safe?
No, its HP has been scrapped a little.
Oh dear….
What’s happening?

「Sense Magic!」

The magic source should be lock on by this.
What I am scared of is the long-distance support.
Spells and arrows.

「Graaaa!」

Something is roaring.
No doubt it’s Tigris.
It’s angry.
These idiots.
Tigris is already originally a belligerence guy.
It’s the first time to see it lost itself to anger.

Several arrows are flying toward me.
I ignore it and ride horseback on Bunraku and aim my staff.
Spells are also flying toward me.
I don’t know the spell cast, but I know the power of magic used.

「Dimension Mirror!」

I did not this can bounce back spells.
Well, first kill.
The one that attack Bunraku rolled over and took some distance and took out a sword, but creep was faster.
When he thought it was wrapping around his neck, it already went for a bite.
I rush to attack when his dumbfounded.
I strike his arm with my staff and his sword dropped.
I’ll leave it to creep to finish him off.
Bunraku has also stood up and started attacking the other attackers with a bow and arrow.
I also search for the next opponent.

「Graaaaa!」

Tigris was Roaring again.
It’s close.
Oh, it’s right behind me.

A man holding a dagger was bitten in the neck and knocked on to the ground.
In the dark, Tigris eyes are shining brightly.
Wow.
Please don’t mind me.

I looked around.
There are three markers still moving.

Kira Lv.11
Thief In Battle Counterattack Allowed
Details: Ground

Sanda Lv.12
Black Sorcerer In Battle Counterattack Allowed
Details: Ground

Suga Lv.12
Hunter Killer In Battle Counterattack Allowed
Details: Ground

All of them have PK jobs?
Tigris raises its face.
I used 【Identify】 on the person under.

Akiteru Lv.11
Assassin Dead Counterattack Allowed
Details: Ground

Oh my.
He’s already dead?

Gene?
Zuiun?
Where are they?

I don’t know where Zuiun went.
But I somewhat know that it’s still alive.

Jean came back onto my shoulder.
But fly away soon.
Let’s go behind these guys and confuse them.

Now.
What should I do?

Creep crawled back onto my body.
Has it already defeated that guy that was bite?

The three Pk’ers was not moving.
I know one of them is preparing a spell.
But I can’t hear him casting.
Silent casting I guess?

「Spell Vibrate!」

I activate a weapon arte when the magic power is raising.
And attack them all at once.
The guy from the left end attacks Jean from behind.
I’ll leave that to jean.

I head towards the one that was trying to escape.
It’s the guy named Suga.

It’s true that you can run fast.
But do you think you could escape from me?

「Forest Walk!」

Being in the forest wasn’t such a bad thing after all.
The situation was disadvantageous, but I have turned it around.
I catch up quickly.
And tackle.
At the same time Creep Wrap around him.
It’s wonderful how his trying to fight back while rolling.
But I am also trying my best as well.
I let go of my staff and catch his leg, and sent a kick to his crotch.
And perform a kneebar.
And break it when succeeded.

「Gu~tsu! 」

A slight shriek was leaked.
Oh, you have set it to be able to feel pain?
Them it’s the arm this time.
I grabbed his arm and twist his wrist.
And next his elbow.
I lowered my waist, put on my weight, twist and pull.
I can feel the impact of it breaking.

「Hiiiii!?」

This time I carry his broken arm and threw.
Doing a pass guard, I went for the other arm and twisted to the back.
Creep start strangling him.
It wanted to go for a bite, but stopped.
After a while he fainted.

Alright.

Should I say that the battle has concluded?
Info starts to come out.

《【Discern】Level Up!》

Well to be expected.
Meeting up with Zuiun, I confirm the PK’ers corpse before they disappear.
5 out of 6 was dead, it great that some dropped money, but there’s also some that dropped Magic stones
Too bad for you.

This is how the results look.
I used Identify of the 【corpse】 before they disappeared.

Suga Lv.12
Hunter Killer Unconscious Counterattack Allowed
Details: Ground

Kira Lv.11
Thief Dead Counterattack Allowed
Details: Ground

Sanda Lv.12
Black Sorcerer Dead Counterattack Allowed
Details: Ground

Akiteru Lv.11
Assassin Dead Counterattack Allowed
Details: Ground

Lord Lv.11
Bandit Dead Counterattack Allowed
Details: Ground

Kou Lv.11
Black Sorcerer Dead Counterattack Allowed
Details: Ground

The result of 【Identify】 is as follows
The problem is the guy that’s unconscious.
Why do you look like you want to bite him?
Wait Tigris.
I’ll let you do it later alright?

I have somewhat calm Tigris down.
I used a black rope and tied him up.
I use Black Heal, and slap his cheeks to wake him up.

Let’s try interrogating.

「Hey, Suga-san, I have some questions that I want to ask is that ok? 」

「Kill me, it’s already over right? 」

Creep wrap around his neck and squeeze.
Hey go easy ok?

Hmm.
His face is looking calm.
Oh right, is his sense of pain is on?

I punch him in the cheek.

「Guuuu?」

Oh.
He seems to be in pain.

「What are you doing! 」

「I am the one asking, you should just answer. OK? 」

I punch him on the other side of his check once more.
Suga Is definitely in pain.

「What’s with the trap just now? 」

「I don’t know.」

I remove the shoes on both his feet, and secure them using Branch Bind with his knees slightly up.
A stone was pressed against the joint of his little toe of his right leg, and I struck it with a mallet.
His not screaming.

「You are not feeling pain right? 」

「I don’t know. 」

Oh, quite composed.
Good response.
Seeing him laughing is the best.
He is provoking me.

I punch his nose.

「Ouch! 」

「Didn’t you not feel pain? 」

「Like hell I know! 」

I punch again, and the same reaction came.

Hmm.
Something’s wrong.

Another phenomenon happened when I took my eyes off him for a little while.
Its fire.
And also, the smell of meat burning.
What?

「Gyaaaaaaaaa!」

Why would he be screaming?
Oh, something seems to be really burning.
The black rope binding Suga is on fire.

The fire went out soon.
I touch the black rope, but it wasn’t hit at all.
And also, it wasn’t damage at all.
Even though it was burning.

「What’s that just now? 」

「That’s what I want to ask! 」

「No, I don’t know myself. 」

Hmm.
The mysteries keep increasing, it will leave a bad taste if I just let him die.
Let’s recover him with Dark Heal as a sign of apology.

I got lost in thought.
I thought of something.
Let’s get him to cooperate with me.
However, I will be forcing him to cooperate with me.

I used the Staff of Torture and strike the thumb of his right foot.

「Ouch! 」

Umu,
This is painful.

I try using the Tonfa of Torture are strike his toes.
No scream.
But the face his making is as if holding back his scream.
Strangely distorted.

I try punching after taking off the Bracelet of Torture.
There seems not to hurt.

What is the Torture series?
Even when using 【Appraise】, there doesn’t seem to be any effect that ignores the pain setting.
I’m curious on the text that says 『Greater pain will be given to those who don’t reform』.

And next.
I recover him using Dark Heal.
What a kind person I am.

「By the way, can I ask you for a request? 」

「Like I care. 」

「Attack me with a spell. 」

「Are you a masochist? 」

「Aren’t you the one that’s a masochist? 」

This time I strike the back of his foot with the Staff of Torture.
There was no scream.
He seems to be biting down his teeth and enduring the pain.
I try twisting the staff with a bit of strength.
No sound.
He’s quite good at enduring.

「Hey, if you don’t use a spell. Your face will be next alright? 」

「S..stop! 」

This seems to have motivated him.
Thanks for your cooperation.

My prediction was right
Once again, the black rope starts burning.

「W..what! What is this rope! 」

「What is it? 」

Let’s recover him with Dark Heal
But my MP is quite low.
I don’t feel like continuing using my MP.
What should I do?

Again, the black rope starts to burn.
What is it this time?

「You used a spell just now? 」

「N..no.」

He seems to be hesitating.
Let’s swing the Staff of Torture in front on him.

「No! I just try to use 【Identify】 on this rope! 」

「Oh.」

What a thing.
I’m astounded.
With this, everything caught with it can’t do anything.
Without recovery spell, mean it will be dead after awhile no?

「Oh right, back to the first question. What’s the first trap just now? 」

「It’s the earth spell pitfall. But I didn’t use it! 」

「Umu. The level? 」

「It’s a spell that is learned when reaching level 10 I think. Did you not know? 」

Hmm.
I see.
Everything is clear now

「Than the last question. Is PK fun? 」

「Huh? 」

「No, I want you to answer the question. 」

I swing the Staff of Torture.
Umu.
It feels good.

「You find torturing fun right? It’s the same thing. 」

「Oh. 」

「I will endure this pain, and definitely pay you back next time! 」
Hm.
This is not the answer I was looking for.
I understand what he is trying to say, but I don’t feel convinced.

Now.
It has been holding back for quite awhile now.
Tigris.
There’s a prey right in front of it that’s in custody.
It must have almost reached its limit.

「Yeah, till the next time we meet. 」

It attacks.
The sight of Tigris biting his throat was awful.
Well it is a large carnivorous mammal.
Scary.
