“Rashka, child of Mishka, accepts your challenge!”
As soon as I heard those words, I kicked off the ground, and rushed towards Rashka at full throttle. My great sword was already clad in black flames as I descended the gentle hill. Using the inertia of my momentum, I swung down that great sword. That attack that had all of my weight behind it smashed into Rashka’s raised club.
But he was also learned in the ways of the sword. He allowed the force to send him flying, and as a result the damage was mitigated. My preemptive attack failed.
But in a flash, I sent another attack. With the aid of the [Skill] <<Swordsmanship B+>> the sword that had been swung down, slashed up. If my body were still like that of a human’s, my arm would’ve undoubtedly broken with that move. But with the [Skill] which was able to make the impossible, possible, I was able to execute an otherwise impossible move.
The swung sword went up in an instant toward Rashka’s club, held by his still numbed arms. In order not to lose my footing, my body moved itself. This too was thanks to the [Skill] <<Swordsmanship B+>>. As my leg smoothly went out and my sword swung, my body moved for the shortest and most optimal route.
A shocking sound exploded as my sword smashed and cut Rashka’s club into two.
But although he lost his weapon, Rashka only fearlessly smiled.
The club that had broken into two shot out a black light inside Rashka’s hands. A black club extended out through the broken club as a medium. And with the club’s great mass, my sword was flicked away.
The club in Rashka’s two hands came bashing at me. It swept for my neck, but I crouched to the ground. It went for my body next, but I blocked it with my great sword.
In the blink of an eye, our positions have switched.
Just a while ago I was the one on the offense. And yet now, here I was, barely able to defend.
To make things worse, I was fighting over a descending slope. The enemy’s attacks were gradually getting higher and higher. There’s a chance he might attack my legs. From my knowledge, attacks to the legs are exceedingly hard to defend. To begin with, the swordsmanship I know of is meant to fight against standing opponents.
I continued to block every single one of his strikes with my great sword, but this can’t continue for long. I’m sure he must’ve noticed it by now that I’m worrying over my legs. And just as I thought, he changed his strategy.
He started attacking my legs. But even if one tries to focus his mind, the mind still has a tendency to waver. So from time to time he would still send attacks toward the body or the head.
The enemy’s relentless flurry continued.
If I take a step back, he’ll only push even harder. He’s gradually driving my mind to a corner. Then in the midst of that storm of attacks, an opening was made.
Just when I thought I’d already grasped his movements, Rashka suddenly sent an attack toward my body.
Immediately, I cancelled the ether wrapped around my sword, and I wrapped my body with it.
I managed to block the attack at the last moment, but Rashka’s attacks did not weaken. His exquisite handling of his club that gave the impression of martial arts, showered me with blow after blow, each filled with the strength of his weight.
I activated the [Skill] <<Instinct>>, and continued to dodge, but what gained an edge were Rashka’s attacks. His attacks were fast and strong. And although simple, they dominated over others.
And the one swinging those attacks was none other than this brute with a brain.
The Gaidga goblins are goblins with power comparable to those of wild beasts; they could even bellow out ferocious roars. And from amongst that tribe of brutish goblins was the chief, Rashka.
His strength is definitely equal to several goblins.
If not for the great sword and the shield of ether, I wouldn’t be able to defend against his attacks. I would’ve already been killed by that unceasing tempest.
As the battle continued, I was gradually pushed up the hill, and small wounds started to gather.
To be honest, I didn’t expect him to be able to do this much.
The gray wolves… The orc king, Gol Gol… Every single one of them was strong, and yet this Rashka’s strength wasn’t any weaker.
—This isn’t looking good.
If this keeps up, nothing will change. With that, I decided to distance myself from the enemy, and I jumped back.
But the enemy wasn’t so naive as to just watch that happen.
But because Rashka also thought I would’ve something up my sleeve, he didn’t blindly pursue. Then without even the time to ask him why he didn’t move, Rashka put even more ether into that black club in his hands.
As a horrible premonition pierced through me from behind, I cancelled my shield of ether. And immediately I used Accel, and bolted to the side.
“My life is like a cloud of dust! (Accel)”
Setting only the destination, I tore through the air in retreat.
A black shockwave ran pass the side.
—What was that!?
As I found myself surprised, an attack came reaching for my side.
I used Accel again, and ran away.
In the wake of that black shockwave was a hole hollowed upon the ground. In a single breath, an attack strong enough to bore through the earth had been released. Iif I didn’t see wrong, he tried to slam that club of his against me as it shot out a black light.
He’s even better than me at controlling ether.
But what could really troubling is if that thing could be fired at close range. If so, then even if I tried to dodge before he casted it, I’d still end up getting hit.
Rashka’s lips curved into a smile.
—Ho? So I guess you’re not so easy after all.
If I get close, he’ll pummel me with his club. If I stay away, he’ll send a shockwave at me. He’s strong, but there’s no way I could lose.
I recall Gi Ga’s figure.
There are people courageously striving for my sake. Humans, monsters, none of those things matter. There are people who saw a future in me. There are people who would alongside me in my blood-stained path.
When I looked behind me, I saw the goblins serving me.
I can’t lose.
[Skill] <<Ruler’s Wisdom II>> has activated.
I’ve been keeping it all this time. A doubled-edged sword that will increase my magic and strength, but also increase the damage I take. As much as possible, I didn’t want to use this. Even if I beat Rashka, Kuzan of Gordob, the chief of the last of the four tribe, still remains.
I don’t know how he’s going to move, but if I were to become incapacitated here… things won’t be pretty.
However! With an enemy as strong as this before me, if I don’t fight with everything, I will certainly lose!
I used the <<Eyes of a Blue Snake>> to find the enemy’s weaknesses. Eyes, heart, head, legs… I picked out his weakness from all that fragmented information. Having to continue dodging his casts of Slash, only to barely come out alive each and every time as I tried to think of a way to defeat him was gradually exhausting my mind.
If I exhaust myself too much, I won’t be able to use other skills. Especially <<Soul of a Crazed Warrior>> since it’s burden on the mind is too great. It’s strong, but if I make a single mistake, my mind will die before my body does.
That’ll be no different from defeat.
I focused my ether to my sword.Goblins of the four tribes, decide with your own eyes whether I am fit to be your master!
As I bellowed out a roar, the earth shook.
I met the oncoming shockwave with my blade.
As I ferociously walked toward that shockwave, I swung my enchanted great sword against it.
