Fake Holy Sword Story ～I Was Taken Along When I Sold My Childhood Friend～ - 147
Chapter 147 Get Him!
「I told you that he would notice it for sure, didn’t I?」
「Yeah, you were right.」
Magali smiles happily and Flor shows a fearless smile while looking somewhat displeased. Of course, she’s not smiling because I came to save her or a cute thought like that. In the first place, she knew that I have no intention to save her when we parted. This woman knows my way of thinking. In other words, ‘Stupid! You fell for it! Pfft!’ she’s thinking so behind her smile. Unforgivable.
…… Rather than that, why the hell did I encounter the last boss at the beginning!?
「Why are you here…!?」
「Well, normally, it would better to be protected by the subordinates and stay behind.」
That’s right! I took action under the assumption that you would do that!
Why the hell did you act on your own and messed up my plan!?
「As I’ve said many times, my purpose is not to beat you guys but to get this Saint. I assumed that someone will stay behind and let others go first. So I planned to crush the one who stayed behind and then flee quickly. In the end, it was as the Saint said, you noticed my scheme. Good job.」
What the hell is he talking about? I didn’t notice anything.
But, I see. He had the same idea as me, huh?
Thinking to finish it quickly and then run away… that’s not manly!
『I don’t want to hear that from you.』
Still, he just wants her, huh…
I can’t help but smile and make eye contact with Magali.
「(He wants you, he said. You are popular, congratulations! You should go on a honeymoon with him. So far away that you can never come back.)」
「(Okay, I’ll give you the right to help this popular girl. Now do your best to help me out of this trouble.)」
「(I don’t need that.)」
My smiling face changed instantly into a sulking one.
Why the hell do I have to do my best to help Magali?
『I’m relieved to see you guys as usual.』
Don’t be relieved. You should be nervous.
「Well, let’s get started. It was a miscalculation that you are the one who remained here… but, it’s convenient since you are alone. I’ll kill you and take the Saint to a place far away. Then, I’ll take her ability there… and I’ll make a peaceful world.」
…… I feel like he’s saying something amazing, but let’s ignore it. It seems to be a hassle.
Hmph, the convenience is mine.
「I will defeat you (and Magali), (move to a place unknown to anyone and live a slow life) and have a happy ending.」
「I can hear it, you know.」
There is no problem because no one but Magali can hear it. But hey, why the hell she can understand what’s inside my mind? Is she a mind-reader?
Well, this is enough for the introductory. Alright, Cursed Sword! Get him!
『Yeah, well, the right person in the right place, is it. Leave it to me.』
After all, you haven’t been doing anything good recently. Win this with no damage!
『Eh? That’s probably impossible… no, I mean, I’ll do my best.』
Eh? Impossible? On the second thought, I should run away now.
The Cursed Sword’s serious words made me serious too, and when I tried to turn back… my body stiffened!?
『UOOOOOOOOHHHHHHH!! HERE I GO!!!!』
Along with the Cursed Sword’s fierce war cry, my body was charging towards Flor.
WAIIIIIIIIIIITTTT!!!! I AM NOT READY FOR THIIIIIIIIISSSSSSSS!!!!
With a crisp expression, Flor said so and confronted me.
A high-pitched sound came from the swords that clashed with each other. Flor stopped the jet-black and ominous Holy Sword with a sword that he took out from somewhere. If it was a half-baked weapon, the Holy Sword could easily destroy it. Even a famous sword has the potential to be destroyed, but it seems to be impossible since the user is Alistar.
「You have a good weapon there… how enviable.」
「I’m trying to reach the top of the world. This much preparation is a matter of course. More importantly, with that Holy Sword you are holding, I can only hear it as sarcasm.」
The two people having such a conversation while locking each other’s swords. When they separated a little bit, they continue to slash each other at a speed that can’t be seen by eyes. Magali, who is watching from the side, is clueless about what’s happening. And Alistar, who’s controlled by the Cursed Sword, is also clueless.
「(Wow, that’s amazing. I can’t see anything, but I can hear the ‘whoosh whoosh’ sounds. The sparks are scattered and I can feel the impact through my arms. I want to go home.)」
What unfolds is something that appears in stories, a sword fight between a hero and a hero. Both swing their swords to slash each other’s bodies but then being repelled by each other’s swords.
Flor thrusts his sword into the ground to scoop the soil and then sends it to Alistar’s face. It’s quickly blocked with his arm, but it also blocks his view and creates an opening. Then, Flor approaches him by taking advantage of it.
He spins around and sends a sharp kick aimed at the soft abdomen. Not only in sword skills, but Flor is also well trained in CQC. If Alistar, who hasn’t received any training, got hit by it, it’s clear that he will meet a cruel result. To put it bluntly, he will vomit in the public. But, a direct hit was prevented because the Holy Sword put himself there.
…… However, the power was so great that he was blown away from the spot.
「(How can a human’s kick be that strong? My hands are trembling like crazy.)」
『That shows how determined he is. I’m sure he worked hard for his objective even if he had to cough up blood.』
「(Hah, I can relate. I have been working hard too for the sake of finding a convenient woman and having an easy life.)」
『I think it’s wrong to compare his efforts with yours.』
Ignoring the Holy Sword’s dumbfounded voice, Alistar points his sword at Flor.
「As expected, I don’t think I can win if I don’t get serious. I will go all out now.」
「Hou, it’s a shame that you were holding back against me. But, no matter how much power you use, I won’t lose.」
He can’t lose and die here for the sake of his slow life. But, Flor seems to have misunderstood that Alistar cannot afford to lose because of Magali.
A black miasma begins to overflow from the Holy Sword and it is covering Alistar’s body. Even though he’s full of openings, Flor is unable to attack him and can only stare at the unusual scene.
That scene, which made Flor want to ask whether it was really a holy sword, continued until Alistar’s whole body covered in black. Then, a full-body black humanoid figure is born, and crimson eyes appear.
【Shall we begin?】
The next moment, the black humanoid appeared in front of Flor’s eyes. Although he held his sword at once, the Holy Sword was swung to crush him from above.
