36-Episode 35: The Slave Elves were so strong that I ...


Somehow, after an indescribable time of hell and heaven, we arrived at our destination.

'As I recall, there are ...... red slimes, white rabbits, and black wolves ...... all to be defeated.

As written in the guide, the habitat was right on the money.
There's a good amount of them around, so we should be able to finish the request soon.

'Sui, can we just collect the demons as usual?

Sui turned into her usual small form.
It looks like she's already learned the procedure.

'Sorry about that. Please do it.'

Sui gathers a bunch of nearby demons and brings them all together to where I am.
Normally, I'd just blast them away with a slash and be done with it. --But there was something I wanted to try today.

In fact, I had learned a new skill when I defeated the demons.

I hadn't been busy for a while, so I couldn't check it out, but if the name of this skill was magic as I imagined, it would make me smarter and more efficient in my requests.

The skill is "Flare".
It can attack over a wide area and is basically non-attributive, but if I have Sui, I can use water-based flare.

'I've brought her!

Sui has brought about fifty demons.
Isn't it dangerous to deal with such a large number of monsters when you're using magic for the first time? You might think so, but in that case, you can just blow them away with a slash. There is no problem at all.

'Hey, what are you doing? You're going to die! !!!!'

Aina shouted in a piercing voice.
I couldn't keep my hands off her, so Aleria was giving me a proper explanation.

'Aina, you're exaggerating. A number like that is no big deal.'

'Are you seriously saying that!

'Yes. If there were a hundred times as many, it might be a little difficult, but that many would be fine!

Hmm, that's not true. It doesn't matter how many mooks there are that can be killed with a single blow.


I tried to use my new skill 'Flare'. Since there seemed to be fire monsters, I used a water-based flare.
An intense blue light and a tremendous amount of heat.

In an instant, fifty demons were blown away, and the surrounding grassy ground became a barren wasteland.

'Amazing ...... that humans can do this!

Aina's eyes widened and she could not hide her surprise.

'Wow, that's amazing...... I've never seen such amazing magic! Wasn't Yuki a swordsman ......?'

Not only Aina, but also Aleria seemed to be surprised.

'You said he was a sage. I've heard that a sage is a being that can use the highest level of swordplay and the highest level of magic at the same time. ......'

I didn't think it would work in the other world, just that it did in the game.

'More importantly, I'm sorry that I'm the one who's having all the fun. Aleria and Aina can kill demons as they please.

'What, Aina too?

Aleria looked at me twice, as if she was surprised by my words.

'It would be boring to come all the way here and just watch, wouldn't it?

'But, Yuki, ......'

I understand what Alelia is saying.
I just know that it's not a problem for me.

'I'm going to defeat the demon ......?'

'Yeah. You can do that, right?'

'But your weapon is .......'

'I've got at least one bow, just in case something like this happens. Elves are known for their bows, right?

With that, I took out a steel bow and arrows from the item slot.
I tried a few things to see if I could use anything other than swords and magic, but unfortunately I didn't seem to have the aptitude for it. I could use them, but I couldn't bring myself to use them.

Thank you. ......, but you can't be like Yuki.'

'I know that, but I think I can handle the demons around here.'

'Yuki's gone crazy, so if he's in danger, I'll save him!

'Oh, that's very dependable.'

Aina carries a bow and shoots arrows at the careless Red Slime.
Undisturbed by the wind or air resistance, the arrow flies at great speed towards the demon.

The arrow landed precisely on the target and killed the Red Slime with a single blow.
The Red Slime, though named a slime, was of standard strength for a C-rank adventurer. It was more than enough to defeat it with a single blow in a one-on-one fight.

'Eeee! Why is that ......?

Aleria seemed surprised that Aina was able to defeat the Red Slime with a single blow.

'It's simple. Aina is strong by nature.

She was secretly checking Aina's status with her 'magic eye'.
Even if it was a simple request, I would never bring a mere ordinary person to a dangerous place full of demons.

He took her with him, confident that she would be able to protect herself even if she were to get separated from him due to some trouble.

Aina has the abilities of an ordinary B-rank adventurer.
How a girl like her ended up in the hands of bandits is a mystery that will only deepen, but I was right.

'Hey, it will take some time before we can return to the elf village. In the meantime, why don't you become an adventurer if you want? I think it would be a good way to pass the time.'

'I don't intend to go back to my village either. Or rather, there's no point in going back. Please make me as strong as Yuki!

I don't know why you're aiming for a higher level when you're not an adventurer, but it would be foolish to ask unnecessary questions of someone you've just met.

'Unfortunately, I don't have the know-how to train people. If that's the case, it's probably better to ask Alelia to teach you.''

'You mean me!

'I didn't teach you anything, but you grew on your own like a weed, right? You should look back and try to systematize what you paid attention to. It'll help you in the future.'

I have a pattern of suddenly becoming strong after being reincarnated, and I have no idea how to grow. Locals are better suited for this kind of thing, and Aelyria has a good track record, so she's the right person for the job.

'Weed is a bit of a misnomer, but I get it! If you say so, I'll leave it to you!
