Shia & F Rank Warrior vs High Lord
Shia and I moved deeper into the cave until a heavy-looking wall blocked our path.
There was a thick and dark magical power leaking through the cracks from behind it.
“I’m going to tear it down!”
I hacked at the wall with the Devil King Sword. Then I sent the pieces of the door flying with a kick.
The two pieces of the door shot straight ahead and smashed into the person who was in the room. But then they crumbled into powder at the last second.
“That was very rude.”
There was a young man with silver hair inside. And he said this while sitting on a king’s throne and remaining very still.
He was overflowing with dark magic that could not be compared to any mere Lord.
He was clearly a Vampire High Lord.
“It’s a reactive barrier. Be careful.”
The door had been destroyed before hitting the High Lord.
It wasn’t a normal wall. It destroyed whatever it touched.
It would probably blow you away if you touched it by accident.
There was also a cage near where the High Lord was sitting.
And inside of it was a large wolf.
“That is…perhaps… No. I am not sure.”
It seemed like Shia had an idea. But she was not certain.
I didn’t know if it was a friend or foe. In that case, it was best to leave it for now.
“We’ll deal with it after the fight.”
The High Lord looked at Shia and then at me.
“I knew that there were dogs sniffing around, but you are not a dog.”
The High Lord looked at me with a stare that was full of magic.
“In case you didn’t know, Charm does not work on me.”
“Is that right? You, what is your name?”
“You’re not worth an introduction.”
Even while the High Lord and I were talking, Shia was slowly making her move.
She was trying to position herself on the side of the High Lord. And then she would cut at him when she saw her chance.
The High Lord’s magic-infused stare continued to be fixed on me.
I wasn’t a beastkin. And so he probably thought that Charm would work on me.
High Lord’s had much more powerful magic than Lords.
There were not many humans who could resist it.
Perhaps no human until now had been able to.
“How many Lords do you have as subordinates?”
“Hmm. So it really doesn’t work on you?”
“That’s what I said.”
As we talked, I searched for an opening. However, this was a High Lord. And I could not easily find one.
And it would not be good to allow this to stretch out for too long.
If it took too long, then the effect of the Sleep Cloud would die away.
And then all of the lesser vampires would wake up.
I was worried about Eric and Goran, who was fighting the Lords. We needed to hurry.
While I was thinking this, Shia had succeeded in moving towards his side.
She didn’t fall on him, instead, she shot me a glance.
It was to show that she was ready.
I muttered, and at the same time, swung the Devil King Sword at the High Lord.
The sword hit the reactive barrier and sparks flew. However, the sword continued to move towards the High Lord as the wall smashed into pieces.
While confused, the High Lord blocked my attack with his own sword.
He had not expected the barrier to be broken like this.
Just as my sword was blocked, Shia lept towards the High Lord.
The High Lord lost his balance but somehow managed to dodge Shia’s attack. This left a small opening.
And I was not going to miss it. I immediately unleashed a rain of attacks over him.
The High Lord’s body twisted and contorted in a way that was impossible for humans.
It was as if he were made of dough and there were no bones in his body.
But even with such abnormal movements, he was not able to dodge all of my attacks.
His left arm went flying.
The High Lord lept back in order to create some distance between us.
As for me, I was shocked that my last slash had not cut his body into half.
But I didn’t allow it to show on my face.
“I got your left arm.”
I say cooly.
“My left arm? What are you saying?”
And in a flash, the High Lord’s left arm regenerated.
“What does this mean?”
Shia said in confusion.
Up until now, any vampire limbs that were severed by the Devil King Sword had turned into ash without regrowing.
The High Lord smiled.
“It seems you have quite the fearsome sword. But that won’t work on me.”
“It-it does not work on him?”
Shia was a little shaken. And so I said comfortingly,
“He has more magic than Lords. It just means that it can’t absorb it all in one blow.”
“I see. So it is not as if it isn’t working.”
Just then, the High Lord silently unleashed a volley of ice arrows.
The ice arrows were incredibly fast. And there were so many. And I could not predict their trajectory.
Shia rolled to the side and desperately dodged them.
I smacked the spears out of the air with my sword.
The temperature in the room was dropping rapidly.
Shia’s movements were quick, but not quick enough to dodge all of them.
Her clothes, hair, fur, and ears were all frozen at the tips. I didn’t think she would last much longer.
“You fools. Did you think that two Warriors could defeat me?”
“Eh? I should be asking you that. What made you think you could beat me?”
I unleashed my fire magic. In a flash, the temperature in the room began to rise.
I was careful to ensure that Shia and the dog inside of the cage were not burned.
“When did I say anything about being a Warrior?”
Every one of the High Lord’s ice spears boiled and evaporated.
I had the Devil King Sword in my right hand and my left hand was enveloped in flames as I charged at the High Lord.
My sword tore his reactive barrier open. The High Lord blocked my attack with a look of desperation.
In the next instant, my blazing left hand smashed into his face.
At the same moment when the High Lord let out a scream, Shia’s sword pierced through his back and into his heart.
