*TN: The Skill Vigor(Kiryoku/기력) revised to Willpower.
Was there a monster like this at the Dark Commerce? While I hadn’t put in my all behind it, the previous blow I dealt had carried enough force to send Demon King Pedonar to the other world in one go—simply because it was divine. And yet…
▷Race: Second Demon
▷Skills: Dark Energy(Z) Vigor(Z) Immortality(Z) Charm(Z) Fortitude(SSS)…
▷Condition: Rage, Demon Sword
My opponent was even more formidable. Four transcendental domain Skills? Was this a joke?
The demon proceeded to speak.
“I did guess it from the time you went on a killing spree against your own race, but you aren’t like a Hero at all. What rock did you crawl out from under, you phoney angel?”
“From planet Earth!”
I leaped forward for the second time as I retorted; this time I attempted close combat since my ranged attack, which was meant to split apart the female demon’s skull, had failed. I immediately summoned Holy Sword 2, and strengthened my body with its amplification effect as well as Blessing.
A whirlwind combined with Divinity and Dark Energy coiled around Holy Sword 2, and added to this was the amplification effect of countless Skills and Blessing—it was the strongest attack I could currently manage to pull off.
“The same power as the Hero of Origin?”
The female demon composedly summoned her Demon Sword, but I wondered to myself: could that thing be called a ‘sword’? Instead of a blade made of metal, a violet body of light shot out from the hilt. That is to say, that thing was…
“A lightsaber in a fantasy world?!”
It had utterly transcended genre.
“Why? Is there a rule that says you can’t use one? In the first place, I don’t want to hear such words from a human who’s fascinated in playing with childish robots, yeah?”
“Don’t condemn a man’s romance!”
Transformation and combination super robots were justice!
A circular wave of impact occurred as Holy Sword 2 and the Demon Sword clashed. The atmosphere was naturally affected, and even the earth surged like waves and destroyed everything that came into contact.
The small-timers of the Dark Commerce caught up in this were launched flying away. While they were highest ranking officers who held influence over Fantasia’s northern continent, they were no different than scum from the moment they became embroiled in the fight between the female demon and me. This showed what a different league this battle was.
Although I lost out in terms of the number of Skills that had reached the transcendental domain, I was surprisingly able to eke out a tie; it was thanks to Divinity being fatal to demons.
The female demon shouted while quivering in anger.
“Cowardly phoney bastard!”
“Don’t compare me to those cowardly angels!”
Those birdbrains were nothing but good Divinity supplies.
The terrain of the continent overturned all over the place each time Holy Sword 2 and the Demon Sword clashed. Landslides and earthquakes constantly occurred, and even thunder and lightning began to rage accompanied by a storm. And our clothing disappeared one by one as they were hacked to pieces.
“Cowardly bastard! You aimed for my clothes on purpose, didn’t you?!”
Yelling prudishly, the female demon’s kick landed on my shin.
“Kurgh?! Cowardly shrew! How could you distract my eyes with those unnecessarily large tits!”
“A sexually harassing Hero?!”
“Hah! What sort of talk is that in a fantasy world!”
That lightsaber was one thing, but this female demon had a strangely good sense about her. It was the same just a moment ago—this was the first time I had ever heard the term ‘sexual harassment’ in my 11 to 17 years in this fantasy world. Just what was this demon’s identity?
Her combat ability had already far surpassed that of the Demon King, and her race was ‘second’ demon. This being the case, could it be that she was the daughter of the first demon, Demon King pedonar? Or was it that she was the second demon to be naturally born?
But whatever the case, it was certain that she was strong. I would have been in no small degree of danger if I hadn’t been able to take the upper hand with Divinity which was fatal to demons. By no means did this mean that my situation was better, however; the female demon’s two Z-rank Skills, Immortality and Vigor, raised her lifeforce and defensive ability to the extreme, and so I couldn’t see a way to defeat her.
This called for drastic measures, and so…
I pulled on the female demon’s long hair that reached the small of her back.
It didn’t matter what she said; after pulling on her straight long hair and breaking her balance, I used Holy Sword 2 to stab her ches—
The blade was bounced off by her breasts’ elasticity.
“Dishonorable shrew! How could you make use of sexual discrimination!”
“How the hell do you see it that way-?!”
In any case, the female demon was also granted an opportunity as my decisive blow failed; she didn’t lose this opening and thrust her lightsaber over at me—but I had expected this much at least. I hurriedly pulled back Holy Sword 2, which was bounced off by her outrageous breasts, and blocked the violet lightsaber. No, I was supposed to have blocked it.
The body of the lightsaber suddenly disappeared, and because of that the blade of my Holy Sword 2 which had lost its target struck hard against the female demon’s left shoulder, and at the same time…
After she received Holy Sword 2 with her shoulder, she once again summoned the blade of the lightsaber and mercilessly slashed sideways across my waist.
I had thought my innards were going to spill out from my slashed belly. Although the injury healed immediately, it wasn’t an easy thing to take back a momentum that was lost once. We had both exchanged blows, but the loss I suffered was far greater.
And this was because the recovery ability of the female demon, who had raised Immortality to the transcendental domain, was at a ridiculous level. Forget her shoulder being cut through by Holy Sword 2, it pushed the blade back instead, following which the wound on her shoulder shot out thorn-like crimson blood at me.
Purk! Purk! Purk!
They stabbed into my left chest region in rapid succession.
“Cowardly bastard, now it’s over for you too!”
The female demon thus triumphantly cried out after attacking using her Skill Vigor.
As she said, I was indeed in a truly dangerous situation. Those ‘thorns’ would have penetrated through to my heart if I hadn’t utilized Master Mollang’s teachings to thicken the skin around my chest; however, that was that. I didn’t want to hear it was the end for me from a pervert woman acting conceited in the nude.
“Who says it’s the end!”
I gathered divine energy at my forehead and launched a headbutt with all my might.
It wasn’t like having Immortality meant she couldn’t feel pain; the female demon, focusing on the movements of my limbs, had been completely ignoring my head and ended up receiving a direct blow.
Her high nose bent downwards and shot out blood from its nostrils, and even her legs became tangled as she reeled about.
The female demon didn’t take it lying down, however; she swung her lightsaber in a counter-attack and targeted the lower half of my body, my precious other self.
It barely grazed past its target thanks to my having parried it with Holy Sword 2, but I was so surprised that my little brother shriveled right up.
“This dastardly shrew-!”
There were some spots that were morally wrong to attack in the world; however, this cowardly demon was the first to break this rule, and therefore: ‘No holding grudges now.’
I released the summon of Holy Sword 2, which was utterly ineffective due to my opponent’s Immortality(Z), and used both hands to grab hold of her voluptuous body like it were a handle.
And then I twisted.
