A Misunderstood Mentor
I left the great sword that Nuruhachi bought for me when I left my party but, it seems that its come to be known as a sacred sword while Alice has been using it.
The cheap sword I used to use has somehow become one of the worlds three great holy swords.
“So that sword, demon sword Soul Eater you say.
Have you tried to use it for yourself?”
“Yes, just once inside the shop but my strength was exhausted in an instant and I was close to dying”
“That thing’s dangerous, please return it”
“I- It’s alright, If it’s Takumi-san you’ll surely be fine”
This isn’t a joke.
I’m sure I’d be annihilated the moment I touched that.
For now, it’s dangerous so lets store it away somewhere.
“Heyyy, Heyyyy, Takumi”
Perhaps because she’s full, Chiharu lied down over my lap.
“Hm? What is it? Tired already?”
It seems, lots coming”
The one who noticed first wasn’t Reia but Chiharu.
Reia was the second to notice, I was the last to sense their presence.
There’s something outside the cave.
A considerable amount of somethings.
“Could it be that I was followed”
Reia peered at the entrance with a grim look.
From there a face slowly emerged.
About as half as tall as an adult man.
Green skin wrapped in dirty tanned cloth, wielding a club in their hand.
A big head compared to their body, wide eyes, and warts on their nose.
It looked towards us with its ugly face and laughed.
And behind it.
An unending swarm of goblins was waiting for us.
It seems that the goblins who bear a grudge against Reia, who hunted them at the city, had grouped up.
“Reia, this is due to your carelessness.
Take care of it immediately”
‘Hurry up and save me please, I’m terrified’ my heart is screaming.
However, from Reia came a cruel reply.
Because my strength was drained by the demon sword at the shop, I am unable to fight”
Oh yeah, that happened!
“Takumi, Ugly, Lots”
“Apologies, it pains me to trouble Takumi-san with weaklings of this level but, could you please deal with this swiftly”
This is the end.
This is checkmate isn’t it?
The goblins flooded inside the cave.
When I die please take Chiharu and run.
While wishing so, I grab the demon sword Soul Eater.
Rather than goblins, being drained of my strength and dying is better.
As I drew the sword from its sheath the charms with ‘forbidden’ and ‘seal’ began to fall off.
The moment I pulled out the sword, darkness surged from the demon sword and creeped up my right arm.
Strength, my strength is being drained!
A voice sounded directly into my head.
“You don’t have even a single bit of strength”
As the goblins were pressing in on us, I was insulted by the demon sword.
1: Same as last chapter, its referring to this smile. Hopefully she stops doing this because I cannot think of a good way to word it.
2: Vichyssoise is a thick soup made of boiled and puréed leeks, onions, potatoes, cream, and chicken stock and traditionally served cold.
3: Do you guys prefer monster noises like this as ‘speech’ or would you rather I did something like ‘the cries of the goblins could be heard’
