Chapter 88 Shut The Hell Up, Idiot!
「Lending my power… I lend it to you? Not you lend it to me?」
It’s Magali-ish to naturally stand on the side of using Alistar.
Nevertheless, ‘lending my power’… it’s as if she has to fight Rubon together with Alistar.
Who would do such a ridiculous thing?
「W-what about me!?」
「Elizabeth has helped me when you healed my arm. Besides, I need Magali’s power as the kingdom’s Saint to break that iron wall of Rubon.」
Elizabeth demands that she want to help too, but Alistar gently rejects it. Well, in case of emergency, he will use her as a meat shield, but now it is not the time.
Now, the first priority is to make the woman, who was leisurely hiding behind his back, to bear the brunt and suffer.
『No, that’s not it…』
「(Oi, Cursed Sword! How dare you trying to drag me in!? You betrayer!!)」
『Ehh… it’s not that I betrayed you though…. It’s just that your power is essential to defeating Rubon who holds angel’s power.』
「(My power!? I don’t mean to brag, but I don’t have any special power.)」
A shocking answer came, so Magali couldn’t help but expressed her confusion aloud.
『A saint has a special power. This has always been the case… even before I was sealed. Otherwise, there’s no way you’ll be revered as a saint even though your lineage is not certain.』
If what needed was only the existence of a saint, then the one who would be chosen was a royalty or noble daughter with precious lineage. Not just a mere existence, but because of her aptitude and being able to handle the power, the village girl Magali was revered as a saint.
She didn’t know that because she needed to learn the behavior and knowledge as a saint first.
「(Eeeeeeeeeeeehhhhhhhh!? I haven’t heard any of that though!?)」
「(Congratulations, Magali. You can finally being useful to me. Rejoice!)」
「(I feel like dying.)」
She doesn’t want to fight herself, and now she hates it all the more because it’s for Alistar.
「(I mean, I won’t fight even if I have such a special power. I’m not like that idiot over there. I don’t want to get hurt at all, and I hate scary things. Being chased some time ago was scary enough, give me a break.)」
Herge and the others were protecting her, but it was tough to run and the people who were chasing her were scary.
Alistar was being chased around by the whole town? I don’t care.
『I don’t mind, but I think Alistar and I are going to lose at this rate, you know? Well, I can’t guarantee what will happen to you after that, okay?』
She imagines it.
What will happen next when Alistar has fallen and Rubon getting carried away with the angel power?
Think, think …
「……… Let’s go, Alistar!」
Magali smiled and chose to fight, too. However, it is for her precious body.
「(But, it’s really impossible for me to fight, okay? Of course, I’m confident in my cuteness, but even if you suddenly told me that I have power, I’m not confident that I can use it well. My body is precious. Even Alistar only useful after being manipulated by the cursed sword.)」
「(Just who’s useful to who? I’ll kill you.)」
If being told that he’s useful for Magali, Alistar’s anger will break through heaven.
『That’s fine. It’s me and Alistar who will fight directly.』
「(Cursed Sword as the sword, and Magali as the shield.)」
「(I’ll kill you.)」
The strategy of hiding behind Magali’s back and firing a series of slashes is not a bad one.
However, Alistar’s magical power is almost completely empty, and since he can’t shoot many shots anymore, it is a failure as a strategy.
『Let’s go! Magali, you just need to do it on my signal!』
「(Performing it without rehearsal…? Well, I don’t mind it though, it’s Alistar who’s going to be in danger if it fails.)」
「(You have to success at all costs!)」
Alistar and Magali look at Rubon who’s floating in the sky.
「Now, get away from that man, Elizabeth. I need to show him what the Angel-sama’s power can do.」
Rubon speaks to Elizabeth the reason why he can’t attack Alistar. He asks her gently as to not upset her. However, Elizabeth gives him a sharp and strong look.
「…I don’t want to. If you say you can’t attack him because of my presence, I’ll keep standing in front of Alistar.」
At Elizabeth’s words, Rubon holds his head as if it’s hurt.
「… Stupid daughter. I wonder why this happened …」
「Because you are such a father.」
「I see, then …」
Rubon points the tip of the spear while gritting his teeth.
At the end of it, Alistar isn’t the only one get involved, but also Elizabeth.
「Even if it hurts a little, it’s my role as a father to guide you to the right path, right!?」
The spearhead shined and a ray of light was released.
Elizabeth, who could only use recovery magic and had no defensive techniques, could only watch it….
However, there was no way that (the holy sword who’s controlling) Alistar next to her would overlook it. As he raised his shout, he swung the holy sword and then he knocked it down.
An then the place fell silent.
「(It huuuuuuuurts!? The impact is attacking me!! Why I can feel its mass even though it was just a ray of light!?)」
Alistar wants to cry because of his numbing hands. Thinking about being hit by that, he wants to run away from Rubon even more.
「Thank you for covering for me. In return, I’ll bring your father back to his senses.」
Alistar strongly nodded to Elizabeth who looked at him as if clinging on him.
In truth, he doesn’t care about Rubon from the bottom of his heart….
「… You’re interrupting me again, Hero! Even though I was trying to educate my daughter as a father…!」
「(Do it in a place where I’m not there! The cursed sword is controlling my body!)」
Rather, that wasn’t education, right? He muttered calmly inside.
「But, you’re no match for me. You, who cannot surpass the power of Angel-sama, can’t do anything about it, can you?」
He wants to answer so, but holds the word to try to look good.
「I’m not alone, you know. Elizabeth helped me… and Magali will help me too.」
Then, he says something to force Magali, who became timid at the sight of the ray of light earlier, into the battle.
「(Don’t look at me!)」
Magali is seriously frightened when Rubon’s eyes are on her.
Since she does not have a holy sword like Alistar, she has to do something with her own power.
「Hmph, stupid. I won’t kill you if you just watch obediently…. I’ll make you regret your stupid thought!!」
Saying that, Rubon points his spear.
And the end of it is not Alistar, but Magali….
「(Alright! Get her!)」
Alistar was overjoyed as Magali was in danger, and then he cheered for Rubon while Magali screamed like a cat whose tail had been stepped on. But of course, the Holy Sword wouldn’t overlook it, so his body naturally stood in front of Magali.
「Your opponent is me!」
For the time being, Alistar says something cool despite his despair.
He shed tears when his own body made a huge jump towards Rubon.
「Fool! Just die!」
The spearhead shines and a ray of light is shot off. Alistar screams inside as he cannot avoid it in the air again. However, the Holy Sword wears a black magic power and then clear away the ray of light.
Because of the strong impact, Alistar landed once on the roof of the building and then jumped again to close in on Rubon.
Rubon is unable to shoot the ray again as he comes closer than before.
「Kuh …! But, I have Angel-sama’s barrier!」
Even so, he’s composed. As long as there is a barrier that can prevent that powerful magic slash, there is no danger to himself.
However… Alistar isn’t the only one here.
「Let me see… like this?」
Following the holy sword’s instructions, ‘Power, come out~’, Magali imagines it.
「Wha…!? The power of Angel-sama is…!?」
Rubon lost the power from his entire body. So, the power that kept him floating disappeared, and he slowly falls to the ground.
At the same time, the barrier that was protecting him also disappeared….
「Angel-sama that Angel-sama this, shut the hell up, idiot!」
Suddenly, there’s a shadow on Rubon’s body. That was because Alistar jumped above him and was holding the holy sword.
For a moment, Rubon was surprised by the rough words that he didn’t think would come from the gentle hero, but he soon realized that this is not the time for that.
He holds up his spear, but even if he uses it as a shield, it has lost its power so he can’t turn things around at all.
A black magic power overflows from the holy sword. It’s all of Alistar’s few remaining magic power… it’s his final slash.
Rubon was swept away by the rush of black magic power and was slammed to the ground with great force.
【For a religion, not only doctrine that’s important, but also an object of worship. At this time, the Angel faith that met the Hero Alistar lacked the very important thing. Elizabeth’s father, Rubon, blinded by the expansion of the religion and tried to eliminate the Hero Alistar and Saint Magali. And the foolish believers obeyed his words and cornered the Hero. Elizabeth, who came in contact with his wonderfulness and understood him, tried to stop it, but her words didn’t reach her father either. He used a dubious power of an angel to catch Magali and to corner Alistar. However, the great and powerful Alistar could not be defeated by the power of a pseudo-angel. Rubon was splendidly being defeated and his clutches never reached Alistar. If they just believed in the Hero and Saint and not believed the angel… that was nothing more but the writer’s wish.】
