――I will never forget what happened in the next moment.
Suddenly, a “man with a seven-colored aura coiled around himself” appeared, and with a single sword, he caught the arm of the giant golem.
And more astonishingly, he deflected the arm. He won against the huge golem with “raw power”.
Then, while leaving a large number of afterimages, he gave chase and approached the huge golem in an instant.
That was 《Rook Swordsmanship》. I’ve seen it being used by my elder brother, who is a first-class swordsman. But that power is weird. It’s too strong. Besides, why is he, who is a Spirit User, using 【Swordsmanship】? And, what the heck is that ominous aura?
Looking at the sight before my eyes, I forgot about my pain.
……He’s on a different level.
I didn’t think he was the same person.
He alone was overwhelming the huge golem using only 【Swordsmanship】.
Is he a Rank A adventurer like me? What a joke.
Genius Spirit User? Earl’s daughter? ……So what? Is what I want to say.
“Master, it’s alright now. We’re saved.”
With tears trailing down her face, Terra came to my side. Ahh, I wasn’t able to send her back.
I’m sorry, Terra. To have such a master.
……What did I want to accomplish?
Was I just letting it get to my head?
Idiot. Idiot. I’m really stupid……
＊ ＊ ＊
“Angolmois, let’s go.”
“Alright. My Second.”
All the experience points I earned beating the enemies along the way were allocated to 《Spirit Possession》. Its rank became 11th Class. It’s a rank at which it can barely be used.
“Ohh, that seems dangerous.”
Said Angolmois. Is Chérie going to die!?
“Let’s use it here! Possession! “
“Haha! As you wish! “
I used 《Spirit Possession》 in a place still a bit away from the boss.
Angolmois turned into a seven-colored light. And then, it blended into my body.
This is incredible.
That’s the only way I can describe it.
An ‘all-powerful’ feeling that’s beyond my imagination envelops me.
With 《Spirit Possession》at the 11th class, the possession time is 120 seconds, and the reuse cooldown time is 440 seconds. The effect increases all status by 2.5 times.
If it’s at Grade 9, the possession time becomes 310 seconds, the reuse cooldown time is 250 seconds and the status increased by a total of 4.5 times.
……However, I think that in this world, the effects of 《Spirit Possession》aren’t only those. As a matter of fact, the time I’ve spent thinking all of this has been less than a second. What’s this? This is way too powerful. Is it because of Angolmois?
Thus, in an instant I reached the boss’ room. My movement speed is also incredible, it feels more than 2.5 times. Almost as if time had stopped.
I found Chérie by the wall. She was knocked down, her nose bleeding. Looking closely, she was crying, all the while Terra desperately called out her name.
I can hear and see that, I see, so my sight and hearing is also much better.
100 seconds remaining. I jumped in front of the Mithril Golem and took its rocky fist using 《Gold Swordsmanship》. The skill’s effect is a ranged attack in all directions, but in fact, this is an omnidirectional skill. If you activate the skill matching the timing, the physical attacks compete against each other, and the one with the highest attack power is the winner. And because Gold can hit in all directions, it’s very suitable to use as a ‘response’.
“It can’t be――!? “
I can hear Terra’s astonished voice from behind. Did she realize that this seven colored aura is Angolmois’ possession?
And thus, while fighting and thinking unnecessary things, the Mithril Golem gradually weakened.
If your physical attacks have the necessary power, this boss is just a “small fry” who has a monotonous attack pattern. Therefore, since the Proline Dungeon’s Boss battle is such a rare irregularity, it can be said that this dungeon is quite suitable for clearing.
……Ahh, it died. It took just 15 seconds to finish it.
After checking the surroundings, I released 《Spirit Possession》 along with a sigh. From here, Angolmois can’t be summoned for another 440 seconds.
Wow, it surely was overwhelming. It felt incredibly good. I might become addicted to it.
“――Second-san. Thank you very much for what you’ve done.”
Immediately after, Terra-san was the first to speak.
“Seriously. What was that? You’d be dead if I hadn’t noticed it.”
I unconsciously answered in a condescending tone. You might say it was because I was about to go to sleep, and ended up coming to this place instead.
After hearing my complaints, Terra was apologizing with her head bowed. Or rather, even if Chérie is unconscious, her spirit wasn’t unsummoned. I see, this might be valuable information.
“Ahh, that’s right. Let’s have her drink this.”
As I suddenly remembered, I forced a high-grade potion into the mouth of the blood-covered, white-eyed idiot.
Her consciousness didn’t return, but at least her eyes look normal now, so I guess she’ll be alright.
“…………Erm, this child is actually a good child.”
In a single breath, Terra-san began to tell me something as if explaining.
Since there was no reason to stop her, I decided to give her the appropriate response.
“Even if you say that, I already know she’s not a bad person. She’s just a bit more twisted, short-tempered, stupid and lonlier than most people.”
“Yes～……It’s as you say. Ever since she was little, this child never had any friends except for me.”
“I can tell.”
“I think that probably this child took interest in you, Second-san. However, since this was the first time for her ever, she didn’t know what to do.”
“……Wait a minute. What does that mean? Did I do something to grab her attention? “
“Yeah～. I think there were a lot of other things, but the main reason was that you were recognized by her parents～.”
“Don’t come at me with that! Properly supervise her!! “
“Since I’m a spirit～, I can’t defy my master～.”
Somehow, this girl is pissing me off! Seems like her true nature is finally coming out……!
“Sorry～! Don’t hate this child～.”
“No, I don’t hate her. I don’t hate her, but……”
It’s a pain in the ass. Nothing but a pain in the ass. And also, Terra, I think I hate you a little.
……Ohh, that’s right. Let’s leave things here to mister great. 《Spirit Summoning》.
“（Mmm, I see, I see. I understand the current situation.）“
As expected of Angolmois. He grasped the situation in an instant by making use of the sense of unity.
“――It’s been a while, Gnomides.”
The Great Spirit King suddenly appeared in front of her.
An expression of “fear” appeared on Terra’s face, then she backed up a couple of steps.
……Ohhhh? Where did that previous attitude go?
“What’s wrong? Why are you still s-tan-ding? “
The moment Angolmois said that, a reddish-black lightning flashed, and Terra’s hands and feet were chained to the ground. She ended up in a dogeza/prostrating position.
So much for a Great Spirit of Earth. Groveling down, prostrating on the ground while facing towards us. It was quite the spectacle.
“Wait a moment, that’s wrong. This is not it.”
“Wrong? My bad.”
As I pointed out suddenly, Angolmois’ strange obedience magic was released, and Terra-san got up.
Terra-san looked over here with eyes of astonishment.
“Huh? Ohh, I see. Then, I will answer the question directly.”
At that point, as if Angolmois had guessed something by the sense of unity, he opened his mouth.
“The spirits and their masters are gradually united. The more they live together, the stronger it is. This gnome girl was surely dragged by the little girl there. Was it pity? Or maybe yearning? Still, that’s only an excuse for her to not go against her master’s order. That was just the result of both of them always running away and licking each other’s wounds.”
Terra-san was shaking, her eyes looking down.
“By your lack of action, you tried to kill your master. That’s something you should never do. You have failed as a Great Spirit.”
“Wait. Isn’t it easier to understand the master the closer spirits are? “
“Nay. That’s no reason to be unilaterally dragged. To be united is to understand each other. But this girl was too close to her master.”
“……That is, a bit pitiful.”
It’s impossible to not forget about common sense when you want to help a sad child who doesn’t have any friends, as they try to get along.
“Hmm? My Second, weren’t you angry at this girl? “
“No, after hearing this much, the sympathy I have for her is bigger.”
“Is that so? In that case, she’s exonerated. Hahaha! “
“Is that okay? “
“I don’t like to make a mountain out of a molehill. I haven’t the slightest interest in the details of the relationship each spirit has with their master. This time I was just teasing her.”
Saying so, he laughed. Wow, this guy has a terrible personality. And what was that? What age does he think we live in? (TLN: Angolmois used quite ‘old’ speech.)
“…………Should we go back?”
While feeling appalled, I carried Chérie and we left the Proline Dungeon.
Somehow, I felt a part of her clothes were a bit ‘damp’. While throwing an oversized sigh, I called Silvia using the team chat and told her to be ready to take care of it.
Seriously, I hope this girl is ready for what I have to say to her after she wakes up……
