Monster Flood’s Demise

Sponsored Content

 

Note: Chapter 30’s size is very long (double the previous chapter which is already longer than the average/usual chapter), so I’m splitting it into two.

 

Part 1/2

Unlike the goblins, the werewolves and the dark panthers’ fighting power was high. It felt like the knights and the adventurers were pushed due to the two’s assistance.

Along with that, the number of injured people only increased.

 

“Healing Wind!”

“O healing wind, assemble and heal Grace!”

 

Frank-san, who had been beating up the goblins with his fists until just now, was fully absorbed in healing others by my side. Amanda-san and the other knights nearby were guarding us.

 

“Those who are injured, step back!”

 

Leon-san shouted with a passing voice.

It was apparent that soon, it won’t be enough with just me and Frank-san healing those who were injured, as their number was on the rise due to the appearance of the werewolves and dark panthers.

 

In the first place, there were priests stationed behind the knights, and so they were healing the casualties behind.

But the ones healing those whose injuries were conspicuous were me and Frank-san. As a result, the knights continued to fight just as they were, but with some people retreating behind, the fighting force just fell.

 

On the other hand, if the opponents were just goblins, the Protect Shield was enough to negate huge damage.

 

But the damage received from the werewolves and especially the dark panthers was considerably high that the number of heal we hurled only increased.

Frank-san and I were healing the others as we drank the MP Potion, but there were still people that we missed healing on.

 

“We’re being pressed, huh?”

“Their number is amazing…”

“O healing wind, assemble and heal Darius!”

 

As I expected, I couldn’t remember all the names of the knights, so I entrusted the healing of the knights from Izel fort to Frank-san.

 

“Well, it is the Monster Flood, so it’s only natural. But this time, it’s a Goblin King and we have the hero. To add, we have a small sage here. It should be an easy victory.”

“It will be good if it’s the case, though…Heal to Lucretia-san! Heal to Leon-san! Heal to Argo-san!”

 

In the middle of the conversation, we healed the others or drank MP Potions. I handed over the MP Potion I brought to Frank-san, and when I told him the MP consumption of Heal, we could manage our MP consumption well.

 

Besides, I had the cheat called as HP and MP bar in the party window!

 

“Still, they are strong.”

 

At the end of Frank-san’s gaze, we could see Frank-san’s junior, Simon-san and his party.

Perhaps due to the fact that the adventurers normally defeated monsters, they were able to steadily defeat the werewolves and dark panthers, and amidst everyone, the strength of Simon-san’s party was so prominent that we could tell in a glance.

 

Gazad-san the dwarf was defeating the goblins with his large sword, Virna-san the beastman was defeating the enemies using her slender sword coupled with her agility. Meanwhile, Naruruth-san the elf was attacking the enemies from behind the two of them using her magic, and Simon-san was next to her as he was healing. They made a very balanced party.

As expected of the S-rank party.

 

“He’s also able to hurl the heal, huh?”

“Yeah, I taught him after all.”

 

For some reason, in order to be able to hurl the heal, one had to practice it while forming a party, or it won’t do. That’s why, ‘teaching him’ meant that Frank-san and Simon-san formed a party before…

 

In other words, I wonder if Frank-san said, “Please form a party with me.”

I wanted to laugh as I imagined it, but this wasn’t the right time and place to do it, so I tried my best to suppress my laughter.

In the middle of it, the fighting situation was a switch between offense and defense, advancing and retreating.

It seemed that the Goblin King’s howling meant that it was using the skill called as [encouragement], and each time the others heard that howl, the monsters’ attacks turned more violent.

 

Leon-san and the others were also trying to approach the king, but the number of the goblin herds along with the addition of the werewolves and the dark panthers caused them to be nearly confined to their spot.

If only I were closer to the Goblin King, I thought that my magic would reach it, but with this current distance, it won’t invoke anything even if I chant it.

 

The monster herds were pressing us bit by bit.

If things remained like this, I wonder if we would have to retreat for a moment and rearrange our strategy.

Although the humans need rest, I wonder if monsters need them, too?

If they don’t, will the Goblin King march on without any rest?

The village, the town, and the humans will be affected by it…

But why does the Goblin King exit the forest and attack the humans?

Why does the Monster Flood happen, and why does a monster king born?

 

When I tried asking Frank-san about the questions that popped in my mind, I was told that [that’s how the god tests the people].

Testing, what for?

If god really exists in this world, does he mean that the god is testing the people in order to judge whether or not the world can continue to exist appropriately?

But why does it need to be tested?

I don’t understand…

 

The people of this world might not think of it as a problem since this was how the world was like from the moment they were born, but I couldn’t think of it as a natural occurence.

However, I don’t know what the cause to this repeated phenomenon is.

 

Did the god decide it so…?

Really…?

 

Then, where is that god, and what are they doing right now?

 

“Yuuri-chan!!”

Since I was thinking, my reaction was too late.

When I looked up in response to Georg-san’s voice, a dark panther approached with its fangs bared.

 

I’m going to get bitten…!!!

 

I closed my eyes and readied myself for the pain, but there wasn’t any damage that I had predicted.

 

“Migyaaaaaaa!”

When I timidly opened my eyes, Noir’s small body was biting at the dark panther’s throat.

The dark panther was intensely shaking its head in order to shake Noir off.

However, Noir was clinging on to its bite desperately, not being shaken off by it.

 

“Noir!!!”

The dark panther raised its foreleg and knocked Noir off.

 

“Noiiiiiiiiiirrrr!!!!!!”

The small black body was thrown sideway, falling to the ground.

 

Thud.

 

In that moment, all the other voices disappeared, and I could only hear the sound of Noir falling down.

The small body disappeared within the goblin herds.

I immediately checked the party window.

It’s alright, Noir’s HP still hasn’t disappeared.

 

“Heal to Noir!”

But if I don’t rescue it from there, that small body will be trampled by the goblins.

 

The moment I thought so, a dazzling light appeared from the place where Noir fell.

 

W…what?!

 

Then, the light disappeared and over there was…

 

“Migyaaaaaaaaaaauuu!”

 

Eh…?

N…Noir…?

 

There was the figure of Noir whose body turned bigger.

 

Eh…? But for some reason, its size isn’t as big as the normal dark panther…?

 

“Gyarurururuuuuuuu!”

Noir roared loudly as it sprang upon the dark panther who was about to attack me.

The two of them became entangled as they tumbled over the goblins.

 

The two similar dark panthers were trying to attack each other’s throat.

No, when I looked more clearly, Noir’s pupils were blue, while the other dark panther’s eyes were yellow.

 

Noir rolled up its back before it sprang highly the next moment.

The other dark panther was also kicking the ground with its hind-legs.

 

The two dark panthers crossed over in the middle of the sky.

 

Then, one of them fell to the ground.

While the other one…

 

“Migyaaaaaaaauuuu!”

It descended on the ground, roaring.

 

 

Monster Flood’s Demise

 

Part 2/2

When the winning panther roared, the dark panthers who were attacking the people stopped.

 

“Gyarurururururuuuu!”

With the next roar, the dark panthers turned its body around and bared their fangs towards the other monsters who were supposed to be their friends.

 

Eh…? Eh…? What’s happening?

 

Unlike me who was taken aback by it, the knights and the adventurers responded quickly.

 

“Let’s use this chance! Let’s go right away!”

Someone’s voice prompted the others to shout, “Oou-!”

Leon-san and the others were also headed towards the Goblin King immediately.

 

That’s right. There is no time to be taken aback. For now, let’s just think about defeating the Goblin King!

 

“Area Protect Shield. Targets are the knights, the adventurers, me, and Noir, and Luan!”

After reapplying the Area Protect Shield whose effect wore off just now, I drank an MP Potion.

 

My MP was healed right away.

Next is whether or not it will reach it.

 

“Thunder Lance to Goblin King!”

The thunder lances rained incessantly from the sky towards the Goblin King.

 

“Is it defeated…?!”

“No, not yet.”

 

After the light that was emitted from the thunder lances disappeared, the Goblin King was still standing over there.

 

Really. I wonder if it has Magic Shield? Or since it’s a Boss Monster, one intermediate level magic won’t bring it down, I wonder…

 

From what I could see, it didn’t seem to receive quite the damage.

But maybe it was a little bit damaged? The Goblin King slowly turned its head to look at me.

 

Ah!

Speaking of which, if one were to attack first, one will get its aggro!1

 

In the game, the one who attacks a monster first will get the monster’s attention and attack. Utilizing it, a paladin2 usually attacks first, but…

 

For some reason, it’s not just my imagination, but…it’s giving me a glaring look…

Ukyaaaaaaa!

 

The Goblin King slowly changed its route.

Noooo! It’s coming over hereeee!

 

 

Thanks for reading at convallariaslibrary❁ᑕ♡m

 

But fortunately for me, that route leads to Leon-san and Argo-san first.

Leon-san nimbly jumped up.

With flames and wind dancing on his sword, he attacked the Goblin King’s torso.

 

“Ugaaaaa!”

Leon-san’s attack seemed to be effective, as the Goblin King groaned.

Argo-san and the Izel fort’s knights all pointed their swords towards the Goblin King.

 

“Heal to Argo-san, Heal to Leon-san!”

“O healing wind, assemble and heal Jacob! O healing wind, assemble and heal Stan, o healing wind, assemble and heal Lancely!”

Frank-san and I chanted heal, healing everyone.

 

Leon-san and the others continued to fight without having to worry about receiving damage, as they commenced attacks successively on the Goblin King.

In the middle of it, the Chris fort’s knights merged, sweeping the goblins who were surrounding the Goblin King.

 

Eventually, a short time that felt like a long time passed…

“Ugaaaaaaaaaaaa….”

At last, the Goblin King fell down to the ground.

 

“We defeated the Goblin Kiiiiiinnnggggg!”

“Uoooooooooo!”

“Leonhart-sama defeated ittttt!”

“Leonhart-sama, banzai!3”

“Banzai to the hero!”

“Banzai to the hero!”

 

The shouts of joy welled up as if they could shake the ground.

There, Leon-san held up his sword clad in flames and wind to the sky.

 

“Everyone! The Goblin King has been defeated. Now, I shall declare that this is the demise of the Monster Flood! However, despite the monsters’ lack of command, the monsters’ threat has yet to pass. Let’s exterminate the monsters without losing your spirit!”

 

Another cheer welled up as they began to exterminate the remaining monsters.

Now that they have lost their king, the monsters who formerly moved in control, was now moving in confusion. There were a lot of monsters who ran away to the Demon Forest.

 

“Don’t chase them too far! Defeat the remaining monsters!”

At Leon-san’s command, the knights and the adventurers who were about to chase the monsters into the Demon Forest stopped.

 

And then, I…was standing in front of Noir who turned large.

 

 

 

“Noir…why do you have this figure…?”

 

I looked uneasily at Noir whose body was a size larger than the normal dark panther.

The dark panthers who were fighting alongside Noir now returned to the Demon Forest after the Goblin King was defeated.

 

Well, the child before me was Noir, but…Although it was Noir…

I understand, but…

Still…

 

“Migyaa…”

Noir purred as if it was lonely.

 

“Yuuri-chan…”

Before I even noticed it, Argo-san was next to me as he reached out in concern.

 

“Noir, why…”

But Argo-san couldn’t heal this sadness.

 

“Why did you turn biggeeeeeeerrr?!”

“Eh? That’s the problem?!”

Isn’t that obvious?!

 

”I mean, it was still a child before, you know? Normally, one would need more time until it grew up to be an adult, right?! If so, I’m already prepared for the day it turned into an adult someday. Growth is something joyous, after all. But, but, I never thought that it would suddenly turn bigger right away like this! Noir is still cute now, but I want to fully enjoy the time when it was still a childddddd!”

“Sorry. I was thinking that it was something more serious…”

Argo-san whispered as if he was drained of strength.

 

“Regardless of whether it’s serious or not, it’s a tragedy for meeeee!”

 

At that time.

“Nyaan.”

I heard the familiar adorable cry.

When I raised my eyes, I saw the child Noir!!!

 

“Noir, you just turned small?!”

“Nyaan.”

“Nooooiiiiiirrr! You’re also cute when you’re big, but as expected, you’re way cuter when you’re smaaaallll!”

“Nyaaan.”

 

I hugged Noir who rushed over with all my strength, and that marked the end of the Monster Flood for me, as I could finally laugh in relief.

 

 

 

After defeating the Goblin King and cleanly sweeping the gathered monsters, we decided to stay at the Chris fort for the time being before returning to the Izel fort on the next day.

Both the humans and the horses were injured and tired, so we couldn’t just go home like that.

 

The Chris fort’s structure was similar to Izel fort, and when we arrived, there was a loud cheer welcoming us.

Since it was unreasonable to have everyone residing in the fort, we received some tents and it was decided that we would be resting there.

 

But a large quantity of sake4 and food were carried over from the kitchen right away, and we were drinking and singing near the tent—it was akin to a festival.

It seemed that Leon-san and Argo-san had a meeting with the people in charge of the Chris fort, so I was enjoying the feast together with Georg-san and Amanda-san.

 

“This is delish~. What meat is it?”

When I tried to eat a stew made of some meat, it tasted like a tomato sauce and was very delicious. The special product of the area around here seemed to be tomatoes, so they seemed to eat lots of cuisine that was made using tomatoes.

 

“Aah, isn’t that horn rabbit’s meat?”

“…Is that so?”

Sorry, Luan-kun, for deliciously eating your friend…

 

“Even so, Noir-chan seemed to be a special kind, isn’t it?”

 

After that, Argo-san said that Noir could have been a variant, or moreover a special kind.

Why did he think it was a variant? Well, normally a dark panther’s eyes were yellow, but Noir’s were blue.

 

And this was only a prediction, but Noir was supposed to be the original Monster King, but since it turned tame to me, a Goblin King was born in exchange of it.

If not, after Noir evolved, there won’t be any other suitable explanation as to why the dark panthers were listening to what Noir said suddenly.

 

Actually, I was also guessing that, though…

No, anyway, I was wondering whether I levelled up again or not, and when I looked at my status…

 

Yuuri Kujou. 8 years old. Sage level 23.

The effect of being in a party was amazing, for I suddenly levelled up to level 23! Leon-san defeated the Goblin King, and since I launched first attack on it, I received lots of experience points, didn’t I?!

 

Putting that aside, I wondered about the new title I just acquired. [Panther King’s Friend]—the panther king, no matter how I thought about it, was it talking about Noir?

 

In other words, Noir is the panther king.

I wonder if that has the same meaning as the Monster King…?

 

In addition, Noir who turned bigger had the body size even bigger than the other dark panthers…

Ah, speaking of which, Amanda-san said that if Noir were to get as big as that, wouldn’t I be able to ride on its back? Next time, should I try asking it?

 

“Although you’re special kind, you’re adorable, so it’s alright.”

When I said it, Noir cried, “Nya~n,” as if it agreed.

 

“You’re cute, clever, and strong, my child is the best!”

“Nyann.”
