I was sold at the lowest price C368: Drainage
No matter how strong Arleo-2 is, receiving such powerful blows over and over again is likely to damage it so I avoided the attacks as much as possible and bought some time by fighting back with my sword.
“Nagisa, are you done?”
“This wall is harder than I thought! It’s going to take a little longer!”
It seems that Diatena can’t move as well as she would like in the water and has a hard time breaking down the wall. Furthermore, I don’t know if it was because of this exchange, but the fish beast weapons noticed Nagisa and about half of them headed towards her.
“They’re coming your way, Nagisa!”
“What? That’s not good!”
“I’m in trouble and there’s nothing I can do! You have to deal with them!”
At this rate, I’ll be beaten to a pulp by this pack of fish beast weapons before Nagisa breaks the wall. I had no choice but to call for help from Jean and the others who were waiting above.
“Jean, I’m having a bit of a hard time! I’m sorry, but I need someone to help me!”
“What could possibly make Yuta and Nagisa struggle?”
“A huge pack of giant beast weapons.”
“Linnecarlo, did you hear what I said? Sorry, but you have to go help Yuta.”
“It can’t be helped. If I had gone instead of Nagisa from the beginning, none of this would have happened.”
Hearing the name Linnecarlo made me think of a strategy. Water conducts electricity well……
“Linnecarlo! I need you to fire lightning bolts at that puddle from the outside!”
“What? I’ll electrocute both Arleo-2 and Diatena if I do that!”
“A little bit won’t hurt! Our first priority is to stop the enemy’s movement.”
“I understand. Then be prepared for a hard one.”
“Oh, no, it doesn’t have to be that hard…….”
I wasn’t expecting an all-out lightning strike from Linnecarlo so I tried to stop her, but it was too late.
I felt a strong impact and even Arleo-2 which is resistant to all attributes, was unable to completely prevent the lightning strike but the attack was very effective against the fishes and caused many of them to faint or stop moving.
“Linnecarlo! You should go a little easier on us!”
Diatena didn’t have the same level of tolerance as Arleo-2 and Nagisa was upset because she felt a lot of pain.
“If you’re alive, you’re fine. Better break down the wall while you can.”
Linnecarlo is right. The fish beast weapons are no longer moving, but they seem to be only stunned and not dead. Nagisa seemed to understand this, gave up complaining to Linnecarlo and returned to the task of breaking down the wall.
I was going to help her too, but there was no need. Nagisa informed me that the work was coming to an end.
“One more hit and the wall’s going to break.”
The moment I heard Nagisa’s words, I felt as if I were floating. Then I was swept away as if pulled by some force.
I saw Diatena on the shore, holding on to the protruding part of the pillar, desperately trying not to be swept away. That’s right. If we break the wall, of course we in the water will be swept away. I had completely forgotten this in the battle with the fish beast weapons. If we continue like this, Arleo-2 will be drained out of the puddle as well.
“Yuta! Hold on!”
Then Diatena on the shore reached out to me. I desperately reached out and grabbed her hand, too.
The swarm of fish beast weapons was being sucked into the hole in the wall by the draining stream. Some of them woke up and started to twitch, but there was nothing they could do. Unable to fight the current, all the fish beast weapons disappeared into the hole in the wall.
