419-387 Invitation to work (4)

"Nao, give me your spear! I can't do this with a sword.

 Toya puts away his sword and thrusts his hand toward me.
 If it's too slippery to cut, just poke it.
 I'm sure that's what he meant, but I don't want to lend him my spear.

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

Well, wait. --Fire Arrows!

 I wasn't going to sit back and watch Toya and the others attack.
 It's big, but it's only an eel.
 The weak point is right in front of you.

 In the event you're not sure what you're looking for, there are a number of things you can do.

I'm not sure what to do. That was too shallow.

 The bone in his head is harder than I thought.
 The forehead was gouged out, but it did not seem to reach the brain.

 But the damage was definitely done, and Petosy's torso began to wriggle and flail even more violently.

 With that, mucus splashes out.
 Toya and Cyrus rushed away.
 However, Silas, who was slightly behind, was bounced off the body of the Petoshee and fell to the ground.

 He got up quickly and didn't seem to take much damage, but his body was covered in mucus.

If you're going to do it, Nao, do it with one blow! I can't get close enough!
Don't be reckless with your first enemy!

 I don't want to touch that mucus either, and I understand your complaint, but you can't kill an enemy of this size with one blow.

 --I don't want to touch that mucus either, and I understand the complaint, but you can't kill an enemy this size with a single blow. You don't have to aim at their weak points.

 This would be a disaster if it went wrong, though.
 The explosion would splatter mucus all over the place.

 With that in mind, Fire Arrow is probably the best choice, but you have to be careful to adjust its power.

 If you use it at maximum power all the time during an adventure, you will soon run out of magic power, which will cause problems with your ability to carry on a battle, and it will take a long time to activate it. In addition, if you blow up more than necessary, the value of your prey will decrease.

 The best way to kill an opponent is to aim at their weak points.

 It is best to aim at a weak point, such as the eyes, and kill it with the least amount of magic power, but it is difficult to fire such a pinpoint shot at a moving opponent, and if you miss, there is nothing you can do.

 That's why I usually adjust the power of my shots to the point of blowing off the head, but when it's the first time I encounter an enemy, I don't know how long it will take to inflict a fatal wound.

 In this case, I didn't need to worry too much about how much magic I had left, so I let loose with a slightly higher power, but it seems that Petosi was harder than that.

I'll kill you next time. Just hold him off for a while.
d*mn it! Now I'm desperate!
I don't want to get too close. ......

 In the event that you'd like to get more information on the subject, please go to our own web page.

    I'm not sure what to say.

"It's finally over.
"Yes, it was a hard fight.
It's a mess.

 The battle was over.

 The second Fire Arrow had succeeded in destroying Petoshee's brain, but it had been a long time since then.

 With its brain gone, Petosi could only rampage in the dark, but its body continued to secrete mucus.

 In this state, the body continued to move, slamming and undulating, and a large amount of white goo splattered around the body, which was ...... already a sludge.

I'm not sure if this is a good idea or not, but it's a good idea. You're not dirty at all!


 I'm not sure what to make of that.

 I tried not to look, but Toya's appearance was quite tragic.

 Normally, Toya wouldn't be attacked by an enemy that moves as fast as a Petoshee, but when the ground is slippery and she can't stand on it, it's different.

 Just before I could land my second Fire Arrow, I was knocked off my feet and fell.
 The body of the rampaging Petoshee overran me, and I was soaked to the bone.

 After that, I worked with Silas to push back the body of the rampaging Petoshee so that it wouldn't fall into the river, and it was all very sticky.

 Even a bucket of well-kneaded natto (fermented soybeans) would not have made it this far.

 The only saving grace is that the sticky substance has almost no smell.

"d*mn it, after the octopus, I get to do this again. It's not even a service scene.

...... No, even if Haruka and the others were here, I wouldn't let them.

 I'm not saying that I'm not a little bit interested in it, but if it's just me, it's no good showing it to other people.

Didn't you protect Mary and the others this time?

I wish you could have shared that kindness with me! Silas, say something!

What? It's the fate of the vanguard to get dirty when fighting the Decapods. It's the vanguard's fate to get dirty when fighting the Decapitators, but it was easier this time with Nao. Thank you!

Oh. Oh. You're welcome.

 I'm not sure what to say, but I think it's a good idea.

I'm sorry. I'm not sure what to make of it.
I'm not sure what to make of it.
That's a luxury. We can rarely even wipe with water.
Well, you're lucky this time. There's a river nearby.
Really? ......

 Toya looked at Silas and the others who were talking like this with a look of despair on their faces.
 Even though it's getting warmer, it's still too hot to bathe in the river.

 It would be quite a punishment to bathe in the cold river until this persistent stain is removed. Purify will clean you up in an instant.

"By the way, Silas. What if there's no place nearby where I can wash up?

What if there's no place to wash? Is there any other way? Unless you're magic.

 Certainly not. It is almost impossible to carry enough water to wash your body, and there are only a few people who can use light magic or even water magic.

 But if you go back to the town in this state, ...... I can understand why adventurers are often disliked by the general public.

I'm not sure if I'll be able to do it today. The worst was when I was covered with intestines mixed with feces and urine. I really wanted to cry.

"Wow, Mr. Cyrus, you've had that happen?

Oh, yeah. That was quite a fight. I barely survived, but it took me half a day to get to the water. And after that, I got sick and had to go to bed. ...... I thought I was going to die in many ways.

 It's hard to hear. Seriously, Purify is important.
 Mary and Mitya also let out words of dismay.

I'm sure it's a lot of work to be a normal adventurer.

I'm going to stay with my sisters, Haruka .......

I'd prefer it if I could. --Okay, Toya, let's get you washed up.

Wow. Nao, I've never been so bitter about your inability to use Purify as I am today.

Sorry. It's not a priority.

 In addition to light, I can now use light cure, but I have rarely needed purify in a situation where Haruka was not around.

 Moreover, even if I did my best to learn it, it would be much easier to ask Haruka or Natsuki to do it for me, and I would lose my motivation to practice.

I'll spray you with hot water and dry you off later, so hurry up and go wash up.

Roger that. ......

 You can use the water magic method to produce hot water, but I don't have the magic power to keep producing enough hot water to remove the persistent dirt from Toya and Silas, and this is all I can do.

 I'm sure you'll be able to figure out the best way to get rid of this.
