I was sold at the lowest price C377: The Ghosts of the Graveyard
One by one, the magicrafts rise up and approach us, wavering like zombies. Kiyone seemed confused by the odd movement.
“Jean, we’re going to fight.”
“What’s going on? Are you under attack?”
The enemy is too creepy to be described in one word, however, no matter how creepy or unpleasant they are, we have no choice but to fight them. Moreover, it didn’t look like we could communicate with them.
Kiyone seemed to have made the same decision, and she readied her sword for the enemy’s attack. I did the same and drew my sword.
The zombie-like magicrafts were coming at us from all around. As I stood in Kiyone’s blind spot and prepared to attack, I naturally found myself back to back with Kiku Ichimonji.
“They don’t look very strong individually, but there are so many of them, you can’t let your guard down.”
After that exchange, we moved quickly. I took a large step forward and swung my sword in a horizontal line. With a single blow, I crushed three of the zombie magicrafts that had been approaching us unsteadily.
Kiyone swung her sword from below and cut down one of them, then destroyed three of them with a thrust of divine speed. In addition, she spun her body and stepped forward, swinging her sword twice diagonally to clear away the two zombie magicrafts that were approaching.
I charged into the enemy while firing a series of magic bullets, and then swung my sword around to destroy the approaching enemy machines. Kiyone and I destroyed them at a very fast rate, but their numbers were endless.
“Damn! Are these things all going to start working?”
There are countless magic machines piled up and I shudder at the thought of them all rising up.
“Are you alright, Yuta, Kiyone! What’s going on?”
Jean asked me, as he was curious about the situation.
“I’m fighting zombies! I’m okay, but I’m starving.”
“Zombies? What the hell is that?”
This world didn’t seem to have the concept of zombies, so Jean couldn’t understand what I was saying but there was no time to explain in detail. I turned to Nagisa and told her to explain about zombies.
“Sorry, Nagisa. Please explain zombies to Jean.”
“Okay, but I don’t know that much about zombies.”
“Just do it.”
Nagisa mumbled and complained, but had no choice but to start explaining zombies with her little knowledge. When she said that the corpses eat people, Linnecarlo screamed.
“Yuta these magicrafts have no awareness it’s like they’re not running independently.”
“Kiyone, what does this mean?”
“I can’t explain it because I’ve never seen anything like this before, but I feel as if they’re being controlled by some kind of consciousness.”
It’s true that they have few patterns of movement and are easy to read.
“What Kiyone is saying seems to be correct. These magicrafts seem to be powered by an external force. I’ve caught a special telekinetic wave. The magicrafts that are moving are nothing more than puppets that are being manipulated. There is another person operating them.”
“That’s what I’m talking about…….Feri! Do you know where that telekinetic wave is coming from?”
“It’s not far. It seems to be coming from the pile of magicrafts in front of us.”
“I’ll blow up that hill! Feri, fire the four-element cannon!”
“I understand. However, considering the damage to the surrounding area, I will limit the output to about 60%.”
“Okay then get ready. Kiyone, stay back, it will be dangerous.”
I made sure Kiyone was behind me and fired my four-element cannon at the pile of magicrafts.
