165-149 New demon (4)

 With the zombies out of the way, we headed towards the new reaction we had found.

 The enemy was moving faster than the zombies, but still not running around at the same speed as the ogre, so it was easy to catch it.

 However, the enemy we actually saw was much bigger than we expected.

It's huge! (What the hell is that? !)
"Oi! (No matter how you look at it, it's too chewy!)
(No matter how big it is, isn't ...... too tough?)

 What I saw was a huge bear ...... walking leisurely through the trees.

 The size of the bear could be compared to that of an African elephant.
 One leg alone is as big as a human torso, and the face is quite fierce.

 It looks like a bear, but it's so huge that I'm not sure if I can really call it a bear.

 But if you check the [Help], it says "Dahl's Bear".

 --Hmm? I'm not sure if it's a proper noun or not.

(Hey, Haruka. (Hey, Haruka, when I used [Help] and looked at that demon, it showed up as 'Dahl's Bear'.
"Really? ...... Really. I wonder why?

 I'm pretty sure the first time I looked at Task Boar in the Help section, it said "Beast (Edible)".

 It's a skill without a level, and I thought it would never change. ....... Is this a service of Advaustris? I'm not sure.

 I'm not sure if it's possible, but from the impression I got from that conversation, I can't say it's impossible. .......

I'm not sure what to say. (Hey, that's not what I'm talking about right now. He looks like he's in trouble.

(If he hit me with his arm, I'd be minced in one hit.)

(Normally, yes. Now we just need to find out how effective the level-up is. ......)

(It's too risky to try. What do we do? Do we fight?

 At Yuki's words, we looked at each other.

 Thanks to the good visibility, the distance between us and Dahl's Bear was still about 100 meters.

 Either our detection skills are not very good, or our [Hidden Form] training is paying off, or maybe he's aware of us but doesn't care.

 I guess we can escape now.
 But then you won't know what you came here for.

You'll do it, right?
"I told you it would be crunchy.
So, as usual, we'll start when we're in magic range.

 I waited in the shade of a tree for Dahl's Bear to slowly approach, and as usual, the battle began with magic and arrow headshots.

 But what happened then was different from the usual.


 The roar of Dahl's Bear echoed through the forest.

 My Fire Arrow was nearly drowned out by it, and Yuki was knocked down by a swinging arm.

I'm not sure what to say.

 Yuki and I were unconsciously speaking in unison.

 I'm not sure if this is a good idea, but it's a good idea.
 I'm not sure what to make of it.

 No, that's what would have happened under normal circumstances. He was firing a Fire Arrow that could have wiped out the head of an orc.

 In reality, however, Dahl's Bear did not show any signs of pain, and its fur did not look particularly charred.

 In the event that you have any questions regarding where and how to use the internet, you can contact us at the web site.

You can't pierce it at this distance? What kind of strength is ......?

 It's a great way to make sure you're getting the most out of your money.

 To be honest, I didn't expect this result either.

 In the event that you have a lot of money, it is possible that you will be able to buy a lot more than you need.

If you can hunt, you can make good leather armor.

You can afford it, Natsuki. To be honest, I'm not sure if the sword will penetrate.

To be honest, I'm not sure my sword will pass. That's what the sword is for.

 Toya and Natsuki take a step forward, sword and naginata at the ready.

 If Toya's sword doesn't get through, it will make a great material for leather armor, but there is a high risk that we will be hunted before we can be hunted as material.

 Dahl's Bear started to run towards them.


 His gait was unimaginably light.

 Even though he was about the size of an African elephant, he didn't seem to have the weight of an elephant, and there was no earth tremor.

 Its movements are so light that it could have jumped onto a tree branch.

 --Of course, if he actually did that, the tree would be easily snapped.

 We were so close to colliding with the vanguard. At that moment, our magic flies again.

"Fire Arrow!

 The one who fired the Fire Arrow with more magic than before was Yuki.

 And then I hit him with the "Fireball", which I don't usually use, with a lot of magic power.


 The roar echoed again.

 At the same time, an arrow shot by Haruka flew into his mouth, and his roar was cut off in the middle.


 I'm not sure if the power of the magic has decreased slightly.

 My "Fireball" struck Dahl's Bear's head, causing a large explosion, and Yuki's "Fire Arrow" struck the base of his left arm, shaving off the flesh in that area.

 Then, after the Fireball explosion had cleared, there was Dahl's Bear, with his left eye severely damaged.


 I'm sure you'll be able to find something that will work for you.

I'm not sure what to do.

 I'm not sure what to make of this.

 In spite of being shot in the mouth by Haruka, it does not seem to be a fatal wound.

 But at least he must have succeeded in taking away some of his vision.


 Both Toya and Natsuki immediately timed their attacks and slashed at the same time.

 However, Toya's strike was firmly blocked by Dahl's Bear's upraised right arm, and was unable to cut through its fur.

 On the other hand, Natsuki slashed from the left side of the Dahl's Bear, and thanks to Yuki's magical support, she slashed the Dahl's Bear across the shoulder, causing blood to spurt out.

"Hard! --"Hard! I'm not sure what to do.

 As soon as Toya shouted, Dahl's Bear leapt up and swung his right arm at Toya's sword.

 Toya quickly took one hand off her sword and caught the attack with the buckler on her arm.

 He was only able to hold on for a moment.

 Her body lifted off the ground and slammed into the trunk of a tree many meters away.


 The sight made me break out in a sweat, but although I couldn't speak, I could see that Toya's body was moving, and I felt relieved.

 I would have gone to the rescue immediately, but the situation didn't give me the time to do so.

 I took up my spear and stepped forward.

 I can't leave the front line to Natsuki alone, and I can't send Yuki and Haruka, who only have small swords, to the front.

 And then, he would use a little too much of his magic power for skills related to strengthening his body, such as [Strengthening].

 If you do this, you can dope your body even more than normal body enhancement, but your magic power will decrease rapidly, and you won't have time to use magic.

 Furthermore, there will be after-effects after the battle, but I can't turn my back on it. As an elf, I don't have the endurance or strength of Toya the beast.

 If I die while conserving my magic power, it will be a disaster.

"Nao-kun! At the same time!

 If it were a small monster, attacking at the same time would probably interfere with each other's attacks, but at this size, there's no problem.

 And for the opponent, it's difficult to handle simultaneous attacks from the left and right.
 Moreover, he has a wound in one of his eyes and arm.
 You'd need something like a mind's eye to be able to handle both attacks.

 --But the eye and arm wounds are on Natsuki's side.

 I can't help but complain in my mind when I see his right eye glaring at me with a glaring hatred and his powerful right arm.

 No matter how doped up I am, there's no way I can take that arm.
 What I need to do is hit and run.

 I'm going to go around to the side with Natsuki and attack.
 Darl's Bear moves his face toward me, as if he's still concerned about me having a healthy eye.
 Perhaps he can't see out of his left eye completely.

 But Natsuki is not one to let such an opportunity slip away.
 Natsuki attacked at the moment when my gaze was completely cut off, and I also tried to check him.

 Is it the difference in the sharpness of the weapon or the magic power in the attribute steel?

 The cleaver that Natsuki wields cuts through Dahl's Bear's fur again and damages the large blood vessel near its neck.

 Blood sprayed high into the sky.

 Natsuki moves to the front to avoid it.


 Dahl's Bear screams at Natsuki as he comes into view, but his voice is a little less forceful than the first.

"Get back! Fireball!

 From behind me, Yuki aimed at my right eye, which was still intact.

 I'm sure you'll be able to understand that I'm not the only one who has a problem with this.


 I aim for the right side of his neck.

 I stepped in quickly and thrust my spear wide, slicing the neck wide open.
 Then I dodged the swinging arm and jumped backwards.

 Blood spurted from both sides of his neck as he was blinded.
 He's swinging his arms around like crazy, but they're not hitting us.

 I exchanged glances with Natsuki, then stepped back even farther, weapons at the ready, on the lookout for Dahl's Bear.

 However, despite my vigilance, the Dahl's Bear, which had been forced to bleed profusely, gradually slowed down, and then slowly collapsed to the ground and stopped moving.
