38 Episode: Goblin King ②
(TL note: this time it was kind of weird for the POV.. I’ll explain who is thinking right now)
Eight energy balls are floating around. It was an enhanced version of fireball,”explosion”. A spell of [black magic lvl 4]. Eight maybe the limit of multi casting the spell, it’s because of the MP limit. That eight balls of “explosion” are twirling around a boy and was launched around us and killing the goblins around us.
Since the eight fireballs are floating around the boy, he should be the caster. It was incredible because “explosion” could be considered as a high rank spell and was casted by a boy simultaneously eight times.
Beside him, a familiar man can be seen. It was Lalit, an adventurer that is rumoured to be reaching rank C soon.
Probably, I can survive..
While Muga is holding his arm that is cut, he is glaring at Gratz and Mimimu. Gratz is still grabbing Lena and were stunned seeing the three person appearance.
Gratz have seen one of them too. It was Nina. She wanted to help Lena, charging in towards the flock of goblins. Against several hundreds of goblins and the goblin king, the rescuer are definitely crazy.
However something weird happened to the goblins.
Their movements have stopped and the goblin king diverted its eye to the boy.
Yu calmly approached Lena but the goblin around didn’t react to stop him.
“Yu a little while ago was casting magic.. Is he in truth a rear supporter and not a vanguard? And the opponent.. Is a goblin king? ” Lalit was surprised but Yu has to be gratefull to him for not running away when realizing their condition.
” That person is grabbing Lena!” the unusual angry Nina is preparing her dagger, she could attack at any time.
I go to the front and approached the man that is grabbing Lena.
“Survive.. We could survive.. ”
” Yu.. Why did you come? It’s useless… ”
I don’t know why but I’m in a bad mood. I break the arm that is grabbing Lena. For some reason I’m frustrated from a little while ago.
” Gyaa… What are you doing?! ”
” How long have you been grabbing Lena? ”
Lena is in a painfull position. She was crying and it is overflowing, she is crying more and more.
I then decided to see your trash status.

“If we combined our strength, we could escape this crisis! Nina please tell this boy. ”
Gratz is saying that while holding his broken arm and looking at me with resentment.
” Are you kidding? You even failed protecting your party. You seemed to be a shield bearer. For you to fail protecting Lena.. Aren’t you a failure? ”
” I already tried my best but look at the number of monsters. ”
” Whatever. You’re only a useless shield.. Then, elfling over there, I know Lena can use [white magic] how can she be in this state? You also can use magic, you guys should be able to hold on. ”
” I’m also trying my best.. ”
Then they gone silent
” I don’t care what happened to you two. Just flee heading to where we come from if you want. ”
Without any wait Gratz and Mimimu run as fast as the wind ignoring everything else.
Just a little bit more.
” Mimimu.. If we escape through the gap, we could make it. ”
” Yeah.. A bit more.. ”
” This is humiliation.. You guys! As soon as I arrive at the city, I will report to the Crimson meteor leader of what you have done. You won’t be alive after that! ”
Gratz is sending intimidation but Yu isn’t affected. It only led to him smiling.
Then Gratz realized. The goblins around that stayed around frozen started to move. Completely surrounding him and Mimimu.
” You… Guaaaa….. ”
” Boy.. What about me? ” (Muga)
” Don’t worry. It seemed that you were really trying your best. ” (Yu)
Yu is looking at Muga then walked past him. He heads towards Lena and gives her HP and MP potion.
” Hey.. Why are you crying so much? Are you a child? ” (Yu)
” Lena.. It’s all right now.” (Nina)
“I’m a genius.. I didn’t do such thing like crying.. ” (Lena)
” Alright.. Then please rest a little bit here. ” (Yu)
Yu picked up Mugas arm and used [white magic]. He connected the cut arm.
” You can use [white magic]?! ” (Muga)
Muga is surprised and the cut arm is connected. It was a more powerful healing spell than Lena. Even a lot of B rank healer couldn’t do so. Lalit dropped his jaw in the back.
” Although it was alright but please remain seated and recover yourself. ”
Muga wanted to stand up after clutching his sword but he wasn’t in a good condition.
Nina in the mean time hugged Lena. She wiped her nosebleed caused by Gratz. Not a problem since I don’t think he will be alive after that.
” I will be fighting with the Goblin king. I will create some opportunity by mixing magic, Lalit please strike whenever you see a chance. Lena please keep the distance and support us with recovery. Nina, you will cover for Lena so she could focus on magic. ”
” I don’t have any choice don’t I? ” (Lalit)
” Understood… ” (Lena)
” Yes Yu… ” (Nina)
This time the Goblin king is growling in a low voice. He is also approaching us. In the mean time I look at the status.

“We will survive from this! ”
” Yeah.. Mimimu you can still use magic right? I’ll use “taunt” and you could cover me. ”
” Alright. Let’s do this. ”
” Spirit of the fire.. Please listen to my command.. ”
However the goblin comes forward and attacked Mimimu.
” What happened? My “taunt” isn’t working. My [body enhance] too couldn’t be casted. Mimimu, where is the magic? ”
” My magic… It isn’t activated.. I was chanting as usual but.. It won’t come out! ”
The goblin leader’s sword cut off my thigh and Mimimu isn’t in a better position. Soon more goblins come and we are surrounded.
A goblin knight bit my left arm. Mimimu has his leg bitten and falls to the ground. He already lost his consciousness..
” Darn… Is this my end? ”
The goblins are eating my body alive. The last thing I saw is a goblin opening its mouth wide and coming to my face.
