Manowa 279

Chapter 279 - Let's Defeat the Wyverns

The group of Wyverns passing by that area in the southern part of the floating island was simply a coincidence. From the beginning, the vicinity of the Vordo Ruins was an unapproachable land for monsters. The monsters instinctively perceived the threat inside the ruins. Though that didn't mean they completely avoided it.

They simply didn't want to approach, and like this time, hungry Wyverns occasionally approached the area.

However, the Wyverns didn't notice that below them, humans were hiding inside the Vassa Forest in front of the entrance to the Vordo Ruins. If it had stayed as it was, it would have ended without the two groups coming into contact.

However, the sudden explosion sound completely changed the situation.

That sound suddenly reverberated from the entrance of the ruins.

Was that lucky or unlucky?

In any case, that entered the Wyverns' field of view. When they gazed at the entrance to the ruins, they happened to see the humans in the forest. And they noticed the juvenile dragon that was glittering like a jewel.

The Wyverns could easily imagine that they would evolve one step higher if they ate it. Perhaps they would even become Adult Dragons.

Of course, the concept of Adult Dragon didn't exist in the Wyverns, but they instinctively understood the evolutionary path ahead. So at all times, it was a priority matter.

And that was the same for all the Wyverns. In that case, it was first come, first served. There were no restrictions based on being companions, and all the Wyverns simultaneously rushed forward.

However, they would quickly realize. The juvenile dragon and humans before their eyes weren't simply fodder. They would realize who was the hunter and who was the hunted.


Then, one of the Wyverns screamed.

The giant rainbow-colored blade『Sevens Ray・Edge』emitted from Naoki's remotely controlled『Rainbow Horn』magic sword cut through the Wyvern's wing-arm.

Originally, the output of magic swords controlled by Naoki's『Operator Magic Sword』was about 30%. No matter how strong the summoning-like Path connection was, it was difficult to output the same power as when he held a sword in his hand.

Naoki could output more than that limit if he used the『Magic Sword Operator』Skill's『Limit Break』like in the Cyclops battle, but that had an extreme burden on the user.

However, Naoki's Crystal Dragon magic sword『Rainbow Horn』was equipped with an Accumulator. Even when it was remotely controlled, almost 100% power could be outputted by using the Magic Power stored in the Accumulator. Therefore, the 2-meter rainbow-colored light blade『Sevens Ray・Edge』worked against the Wyvern.

Then the Wyvern that had its wing-arm cut off fell to the ground.

「Lyle, please take that one.」

「Roger. Leave it to me.」

Lyle and Tatsuyoshi-kun Normal started running after Naoki spoke.

『Uncle, shall I shoot?』

Then Tatsuo, who moved from Lyle's shoulder to Naoki's, asked that.

「No, not yet.」

Naoki chased one of the two remaining Wyverns with『Rainbow Horn』, but as might be expected, a surprise attack only worked once. He would be able to graze it, but it wouldn't readily let him get another direct hit.

『One's coming, Uncle!』

Then Tatsuo spoke. The one that wasn't chased by『Rainbow Horn』flew toward Naoki and Tatsuo. But Naoki grinned when he saw it.

Naturally, the Wyvern couldn't distinguish between the facial expressions of such a different race. The Wyvern approached Naoki and Tatsuo, hovered at a distance outside the reach of Naoki's sword, accumulated Dragon Spirit in its dewlap, and when it was about to blow its Breath,

「Now. Shoot at full power!」

『Go! Mega Beeeeeam!!』

A pair of lights were emitted from Tatsuo's eyes.

It was the serious blow that even the God Dragon known as Blue Flame Ao said would have killed him if he had been careless. It was fired at a lower rank Wyvern. There was no way the likes of a Wyvern would have the power to resist.

Therefore, that one blow from Tatsuo easily pierced the chest of the Wyvern and ended its life. Almost at the same time, when the last Wyvern was taken aback by the sudden light attack, Naoki diligently landed a decisive blow with『Rainbow Horn』, and it fell to the ground.

(It was shallow? It's tougher than I expected. I wasn't able to snatch away almost any fighting power.)

He had made it fall, but the response was weak. Naoki judged so, but he pulled himself together

「Alright. Tatsuo, good job.」

Naoki spoke words of appreciation to Tatsuo and stroked his head. Tatsuo replied「Kuwaa.」

However, he had squeezed out Magic Power to the limit to fire that full-power Mega Beam. As might be expected, Tatsuo seemed exhausted.

「Since your quota was one, Tatsuo's duty was accomplished. Return to the carriage and rest.」

They hadn't expressly made such an agreement, but Naoki judged that it would be difficult for Tatsuo to continue fighting, and he had already shot one down. He had displayed sufficiently great success with his small body. Naoki was thinking that it was his turn now.

『Roger, Uncle. Well then, my apologies, but please settle the rest.』

And Tatsuo was a smart child. He accurately grasped the battle situation and his own condition, so he obeyed Naoki's instructions and unsteadily returned to the carriage.

(Leave it to me)

While watching Tatsuo's retreating figure, Naoki confirmed that there were no other monsters around with his Remote Viewing and『Sense』Skill before he turned his eyes to the fallen Wyvern.

「Well then, I also have to fulfill my quota. Let's go, Dragoon.」

After being shouted at, Tatsuyoshi-kun Dragoon started running with Naoki.

At the time Naoki's battle against the Wyvern began, Lyle was already fighting the first fallen Wyvern.


Lyle's battlefield was a little farther from the carriage than Naoki's. The opposing Wyvern was already missing one arm. That being the case, the battle was, naturally, a ground battle.


At Lyle's words, Tatsuyoshi-kun Normal jumped out in front and held up its Crystal Tower Shield. There was a loud clashing sound as the Wyvern claws that had tried to grab them were repelled.


And at the same time it was repelled, Lyle's dragonfang spear stabbed that right arm. The left arm had already been cut off by Naoki's『Sevens Ray・Edge』.

Now its remaining arm was dangerously damaged, and the Wyvern moaned in pain. From the beginning, its body had accumulated damage from the impact of the fall. Then the Wyvern used Wind's Divine Protection with its damaged right wing-arm to leap backwards,

「Dangerous! Normal, guard!!」

And the Wyvern spouted Flame Breath.

Compared to an average dragon's, that flame was weaker, but against a human opponent, it was sufficiently powerful. However, as soon as it finished blowing the Breath, Tatsuyoshi-kun Normal holding its crystal greatshield and Lyle with his body completely covered by his white Indestructible Cloak rushed out.

The Wyvern stared in amazement, but Tatsuyoshi-kun Normal had blocked the flame with his Crystal Tower Shield, and furthermore, Lyle had covered his entire body with his Indestructible Cloak to defend. With all of that, there was no way damage would pass.

Lyle's Indestructible Cloak spread out with a flapping sound as he pierced the Wyvern's abdomen with his dragonfang spear. Tatsuyoshi-kun Normal pierced the Wyvern's right leg with its dragonbone spear.

The Wyvern couldn't hold back its scream, and it rotated its entire body to try and send Lyle and Tatsuyoshi-kun Normal flying at the same time with its tail.

However, Tatsuyoshi-kun Normal's power source was the Childstone of an Earth Core Dragon. Its speed wa​s limited, but there was no limiter on its power. Therefore, there was no reason even the tail attack of a Wyvern couldn't be caught by its Crystal Tower Shield.

The tail and shield loudly clashed. The Wyvern was astonished that the small, sturdy existence before its eyes had blocked its tail.

On a battlefield, that kind of negligence invited death.

Lyle recognized that momentary gap,

「Eat thiiis!!」

And he fired the anti-dragon ability『Thunder God Spear』, which he had finally completely mastered thanks to his grandfather's special training hell over the past month. Lyle's lightning-covered spear flashed through the air.

Thanks to Lyle's backbreaking effort and the added power of the spear made from the Black Rock Dragon's fang, the technique that couldn't bring down even a Barua Lizard two months ago pierced the Wyvern's chest.

「Well, I can't say that I won with my own ability against an opponent missing an arm.」

After receiving that attack, the Wyvern was already at death's door. However, while imperfectly, it was still a dragon, the strongest species. Therefore, the Wyvern lifted its head and opened its mouth to burn them away with its life's final Breath,

「But a win is a win.」

And Lyle once again threw a『Thunder God Spear』with the dragonbone spear he had received from Tatsuyoshi-kun Normal.

Then that blow entered its open mouth and penetrated all the way to its spinal cord. The Wyvern's brain was immediately fried by the『Thunder God Spear』, and it collapsed, smoke rising from its face.

Yumika:「Let's not.」
