Chapter 70.1. The First Year at the Academy – Saijito (1)
“Can you use wide-range magic that won’t cause harm even if I enter the range?”
“I can use Sanctuary, but even it won’t work on a golem.”
I was relieved inside while pretending to be impressed.
I won’t reveal my hand without a fight. Elphimia flubbed it, and suddenly the line was broken.
“One more thing. What happens to the magic within range when you use it?”
“Any magic will interfere with the magic in the vicinity. Of course, it’s natural. I’m scattering magic power.”
“Well, I guess I can handle that.”
I inspected Rhino sword and put it in its scabbard.
To the untrained eye, there was nothing unusual.
However, I slashed at the iron ingot many times. No wonder there is invisible damage.
Do your best a little more. I’ll send you in for proper maintenance.
“What are you going to do?”
“I’ll explain when it’s done. What we’re going to do is simple, but a bit complicated. We’re going to fight again, so on my cue, I’ll ask you for a “Sanctuary”. Focus on the golem. Oh, and I’m going to borrow your bag.”
I borrow the bag from Elphimia, who is in a panic.
As we approach the mansion, we immediately hear the golem’s footsteps.
If it had any feelings, it’d thought, “This guy again?”
I look around at the debris in the area.
I don’t know how well it will work, but I’ll take out an insurance policy.
I move to a decent piece of debris and measure the distance from the golem.
“I’m sorry to use this on your first real battle, but…”
The square is set ablaze by the explosion.
I fired two “Fireball” to blow the rubble away, scattering it in the air.
I fired four “Fireball” in all directions at the black planks glowing in the moonlight.
The board lost its place of refuge and was fanned by the flames in mid-air.
I fired four more shots.
The black planks begin to glow dully.
The golem was distracted by the flames bursting above its head, but it must have judged that I was harmless, because it rushed toward me.
I moved forward toward it.
I ducked its swinging fist and leaped into the air, using the golem’s shoulder as a foothold.
“Let’s take this one first!”
I fire “Fireball” from my left and right hands.
The targets are the front of the golem and the back of the board.
The golem is thrown back by the bursting mass of flames, and immediately afterward, the board crashes into its back–a heavy bass sound echoes through the air.
Part of the plank is shredded and flies off somewhere.
The rest seem to have melted more than I expected.
Clinging to the iron mass was lead.
The golem has no joints. It is just separate parts connected by magic power. What would happen if a foreign substance, even lead, which blocks the flow of magic power, entered the gap?
The golem moved to turn around.
But it doesn’t hold much. It will peel off when it cools.
I pull out Rhino sword and activate “Physical Up”, “Moving Up”, and “Fast Movement”.
“Do it, Elphimia!”
Elphimia’s mouth was gaping open, but she hurriedly focused her attention.
Now, it’s the crucial moment.
If we are slow, if we are weak, we will fail. I couldn’t waste a single swing.
I readied my sword and dispelled my thoughts.
Elphimia shouts, and immediately the garden glows pale.
With that as my cue, I slash.
I sent a single slash to the joint and base of the right leg.
I forcefully return the sword and slash up from the groin to the left leg.
Both golem’s legs are lost, and the golem slowly shifts.
Okay – it is not repaired.
After twisting my body further as it almost leaps up, I swing down forcefully.
Its body tilts its left arm in the air.
With a final slash to the left arm, the golem collapses with a loud thud.
There is still no time to rest.
The limbs are beginning to move in an attempt to repair itself.
I pick them up and throw them one after another into my magic bag.
“Let’s drop the head, just in case.”
I hang my legs over the torso and detach its head.
“That should do it. But the torso is huge, but it’s in there. That’s awesome, this bag.”
The golem vanished from the world.
I look around to see if there’s anything left to take out, and finally take a breath and deactivate the “Fast Movement”.
Somehow it seems to have worked.
The golem being was similar to a skill. It has no magic power, and the magic power that holds its limbs together depends on the outside world. What happens when range magic is released there? For a moment, the surrounding magical power is given direction, and its flow is interrupted. That would be a meaningless moment. But for me who can generate random speed? It’s the best opportunity.
Still, if the structure had been like a spherical joint, I couldn’t detach it easily.
It was quite forceful even now.
When I held up Rhino sword, I found countless spills.
If the lead had not slowed it down, I might have broken Rhino sword.
I pushed it too hard.
Unlike a metal sword, I cannot resharpening it. If I resharpen it, it will become even lighter.
I have to use it more carefully.
I looked over at the unexpected voice and saw Elphimia’s shoulders shaking.
What’s wrong with her? Toilet?
“What do you put? In my bag!”
“Oh, that. It’s okay, I’ll be quiet. It’s still in pieces. Let’s take them out.”
“Stop it! What are you doing? I thought it suddenly disappeared, and then I saw the golem’s limbs–no, more importantly, what was that magic? It looked like a Fireball.
Elpimia’s eyes widened, and she was stunned.
It seems she has arrived at the right answer, but I am a little scared because of her big eyes.
I can’t hide it under the circumstances, and I don’t intend to. I’d tell it her honestly.
“I forgot to mention that I can use “Multiple Chanting”. And also “Appraisal”.”
“No way! But that’s for sure.”
Elphimia was mumbling, but then she thought back to my words and stopped.
“What did you just say?”
“‘Appraisal’. Hey, Elphimia, who has “Basic Appraisal”.”
Elphimia glared at me and backed away.
She seemed to be searching for the truth of what I said, but I thought it was pointless to bother her.
“Since when did you know about it?”
“Since the beginning. I don’t like you snooping around too much. I try not to look unless I have to.”
What is necessary depends on my mood.
Then she suddenly exclaims.
“Don’t look at my status without my permission! You pervert!!!”
“How can you say it like that?”
Now you know what it feels like to be on the receiving end of a sneaky peek. That is how people grow up.
I’m an adult, so I don’t need to know how it feels.
