267-239 Encounter (1)

The Wall of Wind!

 At about the same time as Haruka used her magic, the arrows that were flying at us were deflected by it.
 There were no arrows flying towards the carriage, probably because we were walking ahead of it, slightly away from it.
 I'm not sure what to make of this.

"...... Really?

 The Fire Arrows flew to different targets, but none of them hit their targets and stabbed into the ground in vain.

 Or, to be more precise, the aim was accurate, but they were all avoided.

 Even though humans and demons are different, I was a bit shocked because I was confident in my magic.

"Toya! Don't let your guard down. He might be quite skilled.
Of course!

 The people who came out of the forest were the five people that I knew in advance from the [search enemy].

 In the event you're not sure what you're looking for, you'll be able to get a hold of us on the web.

 --Are these really bandits?
 I'm not sure what to make of this.
 But whether they're bandits or not, it doesn't change what you have to do.

 Of the three that came towards us, Toya and Natsuki took care of two of them, while Yuki and Haruka took care of the other two.

 The two who went behind us were...

"Nicholas and six others, take three each!
"Got it!

 Eckert's voice and the territorial soldiers' voices responded.
 Three against one seems to be no problem, but unfortunately, the Lords are not very strong.
 Just in case, I tried to head back to cover him, but...

"Sorry! Nao, cover me!

 It was Toya who shouted at me.
 The man in front of him was about the same size as Toya.

 The man in front of him was about the same size as Toya. He was handling a slightly thicker shortsword and was half-tossing Toya, who had been able to handle Sazius with ease.

Who are you?

 I said, not expecting an answer, but hoping to distract him at least a little.

 At the same time, I thrust my spear into him, but of course, he remained silent and easily defeated my spear.

Hey, Toya, are you strong?
Strong. Technically, you're completely outmatched. Strength and speed, I guess.

 Because he's a beast, he has superior physical strength and speed compared to humans.
 I'm not sure what to make of this.

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

 And as for the carriage, three against one has turned into four against one, but no one seems to have left the front line, and they seem to be holding their own.

 The guy we're dealing with seems to be controllable as long as it's just me and Toya, but if someone leaves the front, we're in trouble.

 But if someone leaves, it's going to be a bit of a problem... There's still the captain Eckert, one of the territorial soldiers, and Mary and the others, but even though there's no response to the [search enemy], if there's another team, Ilias is in danger.

 It's a good idea to have a good idea of what you're looking for.

"Number two, three!

 --Three, two, one, now!

Fire Arrow!

 It may sound like an old saying, but this is the most efficient way to attack a single target.

 Especially against humans, if you can injure them even a little bit, it will give you an advantage.

 Pain slows down movement, and even if the enemy has a rare healing magician, there is no way that they can heal him immediately, so if you can get him out of the line of fire even temporarily, it will tip the balance.

 The three "flaming arrows" are aimed at the enemy that Natsuki is fighting.

 It's a good idea to have a good idea of what you're looking for.

 What I really want is for me to be able to leave the enemy in Toya's hands, even if only temporarily.

 With Natsuki in the way, I ducked one of Haruka and Yuki's flaming arrows and cut off another. My "flaming arrows" are coming at the enemy at a different speed.

 The man tried to deal with them as well, but it was too much for him to do so while fighting Natsuki.

 He managed to twist around, but the "flaming arrow" pierced the base of his left leg, and from there the rest of his leg was torn off.

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

"...... Whoa!

 I couldn't help but let out a squeal.

 It is not bleeding as much as it should be because of the burned out state, but it is still bleeding enough to make you want to call it a bloodbath.

 But still, it was bleeding so much that I wanted to say "spilling.
 In other words, it is a 'fire arrow' with the power to blow off the head of an orc.

 I'm not sure what to make of that.

 But if you lose one leg and give up your weapon, you won't be able to fight Natsuki.

 --I'm sorry.
 I'm not sure if it was a bad thing or a good thing that I thought that.
 The man who had been fighting Toya made a quick decision.

 The man who had been fighting Toya made a quick decision. He pushed Toya back to create distance, then took out a whistle from his pocket and blew it. from his pocket.

 At the same time, he began to run, and together with the man who had also left, the man whom Haruka and the others had been dealing with, he took both arms of the man who had lost his legs and carried him up and retreated into the forest.

 At the same time, the men who had been fighting at the back of the carriage also disappeared into the forest as soon as they heard the sound of the whistle.

 If I had wanted to, I could have used magic to drive them back, but ...... to be honest, I was upset by the strength they showed, which was more than I had imagined.

 I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to do that.
 There's no guarantee that we'll be safe.
 Besides, our goal is not to destroy the enemy, but to protect Master Ilias.
 Just getting rid of them is enough to fulfill our role.
 There is no reason to take a risk.

Haaaa ....... Good work. Are you hurt?

 I exhaled loudly and called out to Toya, who also exhaled and wiped the sweat from her forehead.

I managed. To be honest, it was pretty bad,......, but it seemed like they were fighting with a certain margin of safety.

 I'm sure you'll be able to understand why.

I'm sure you'll agree. I'm not sure what to make of it.

It's not as if he was going to die by any means. If he had come at me with abandon, I think I would have been in a lot of danger, and I would have been saved.

"But instead, you let him escape.

I don't mind that. This job is not to defeat bandits. You didn't look like a bandit in the first place. --How about you, Eckhart?

 You'll be able to find a lot more than just a few of them.

No big deal here either. Four against one, which is a bit pathetic.
We're holding the wagon. That's good.

 I could see Master Iliad's face peering out of the window of the carriage, as if the battle had settled down, but there was not a single wound on the carriage.

"Is anyone injured? Are there any?
"Just a couple of minor cuts. Not enough to interfere with combat.
No. But we'll get you fixed up.
Oh, yeah? Sorry. Hey.
What? Thank you, sir!

 Eckart called out to Haruka's offer, and the two men stepped forward and saluted.
 The two men stepped forward and saluted.

"That's about right. Light Cure.

 The wound closes easily and the bleeding stops.

"Thank you very much!

 I'm sure you'll be able to find a lot of people who'll be able to help you out.

 Even if it is made of white iron instead of attribute steel, it can cost as much as a car if not more.

 Incidentally, the rather stiff attitude of the territorial soldiers toward us is probably not unrelated to the fact that we were acting like instructors during the five days of training.

 In peacetime, we talk to each other quite normally, but now we may be more conscious of the fact that we are on duty.

Oh, by the way, there was also a guy who cut down the Fire Arrow. ......
That's right. I'm sure you'll be able to figure out that he had a weapon with more than just attribute steel.
I picked up the sword you dropped.

 You can find a lot of people who are looking for the best way to get the most out of their life.

 Toya takes it and stares at it.

"This is ...... fire steel. Obviously, it's not worthy of a mere bandit.

"And the action. In the end, he drew back vividly, without even saying a word. ...... What do you think, Eckert?

 "What do you think, Eckert?" "Give me the money! I'm not sure what to say. In the event that you have any questions regarding where and how to use the internet, you can call us at the web site.

 If he was a bandit, he was probably a very well-trained bandit, and his name was probably well known.

 To be honest, if I were to encounter bandits of that level, I wouldn't have the confidence to continue being an adventurer, and I would be too afraid to leave the city.

 That's why I asked Eckart to talk about it, but he shook his head in annoyance.

Sorry, that's not my area of expertise. Master Ilias, may I?
"Yes. May I leave?
There is no hostile response, at least not that I can detect.

 As soon as I answered that, Arin and Keturah came out of the carriage, followed by Master Ilias, Mary and Mitya.

"Hmm. I didn't think we'd be attacked by bandits. It's not a place where many merchants go. ....... It's a shame for our territory.

 In the event that you've got a lot of money, you'll be able to take advantage of it.

It's a good idea to have a good idea of what you're looking for.

 In fact, there is not much traffic, as the carriage could not pass through without us repairing the hole.

 So it was a bit puzzling that there were ordinary bandits waiting for us here.

 As we explained our suspicions, Ilias, Arlin and Ketola looked serious and pondered.
