If you go through the west road for about an hour, you’ll find a deep forest on the town’s west side. And that’s where we are.
The forest condition is akin to a battlefield.
Many people are escaping from the forest, and there were also people being carried by stretchers.
I found the Guild Master in front of the entrance and was about to call him out but…
My feet stopped halfway.
It’s because I found a familiar face from the people who were lying on the stretchers.
Hamilton’s eldest son, Albrevit.
The origin of this commotion.
Albrevit tried to get up from his stretcher.
He was clearly struggling yet there’s no sign of giving up.
“What are you doing, brother?”
“I… can’t…. in a place like this… gu…!”
When he was about to get up, a person from behind suddenly hit his head.
It’s a clean hit and Albrevit lost his consciousness just like that, collapsing on the stretcher.
The one who did it was…
The Guild Master.
He threw the stick he’s holding with his hand with a scary face.
“Take him to the town. I won’t deal with young master’s useless rivalry more than this.”
A few people grabbed Albrevit’s stretcher, lifted it up, and went to the direction of the town.
Guild Master sighed, and after taking a breath to gain his bearings, he turned his gaze to me.
“Since I also have some responsibility for this…”
“That’s not yours to bear. If we can finish this safely, I won’t let anyone complain about you.”
I’m relieved with his words.
“What’s the situation? Just what’s inside this forest?”
Asuna asked the Guild Master.
Even for the cheerful her, she’s showing a stiff face right now.
“The one sealed inside this forest is the Evil Dragon, Radon. Liam’s predecessor… it’s the monster that his great-grandfather had sealed.”
Guild Master nodded, making Asuna’s face more rigid.
“The sealing method still exists… I’ve also prepared the personnel required.”
Not far from him, he pointed at a few people with his finger.
I believe it’s around 20 people, and they’re all going to re-seal the evil dragon.
“They will be able to re-seal it but, there’s so much obstacle that it’s not going well.”
“Radon Juniors. The evil dragon’s children.”
“This disastrous scene is all their fault. It’s shocking, isn’t it? All of this is caused not by the parent but by its children.”
I could tell by his face that he’s really frustrated right now.
“Then it’s going to be worse when the evil dragon itself moves, right?”
“That’s right. Well, it was sealed for a long time. It will take a week for it to regain its power and start rampaging around.
If we can seal it again in that span of time, then there will be no problem… but, well…”
He sighed again, before taking a breath to calm himself.
Radon Juniors… they’re the problem, huh.
We went inside the forest.
We could tell where the fight took place just by the screams ahead of us.
And when we arrived… a disastrous scene welcomed us.
Many hunters were collapsed everywhere.
Burned by flames, broken bones, missing a body part…
No one in a fighting condition.
And then I saw three dragons that are protecting something big behind them.
But what was shocking was their size. They were as big as the medium-sized wild dogs.
“Let’s try it.”
Asuna said and took a stance with her knives.
One of the Radon Juniors opened its mouth widely.
Flame swirled inside its mouth.
The flame was of black color, as if indicating the birth of a disaster.
“AVOID IT, ASUNA!”
She reacted with my scream and dodged halfway.
Radon Junior also reacted and chased her. Then… it fired the flame.
Asuna also sped up. She was running away with all her might.
And somehow, she managed to shake it off.
The flame swallowed the trees and it instantly turned into charcoal.
“W, what is that?”
“Such fierce flame…”
Asuna and Jodi-san were speechless.
I put out my fist to shoot.
[Magic Missile]-7 shots.
My highest number without chanting.
7 magic bullets flew towards them all at once.
One of Radon Juniors opened its mouth.
It turned towards my [Magic Missiles] and roared and my [Magic Missiles] was bounced away.
It erased all 7 of my [Magic Missiles] with just a roar.
“It’s hopeless… we can’t win.”
“Let’s retreat, Liam-kun.”
Asuna came back to regroup, and both girls agreed to run away.
The Radon Juniors in front of us displayed a strength that far exceeds our imagination.
There’s also three of them, so we can’t win however we think about it.
When I was thinking… the three of them quickly flew towards us.
“Here it comes!”
“Take Jodi-san and get away from here!”
Asuna snatched Jodi-san and activated the [Speed Star] to run away.
She won’t lose against these Radon Juniors when it comes to speed.
I called forth my [Item Box].
Taking out some stuff from the inside, I chanted at the same time.
“Amelia-Emilia-Claudia—Come out! [Another World]!”
I somehow managed to activate it with chanting.
The door leading to the space of another world opened up in front of me.
It appeared between me and those Radon Juniors.
The Radon Juniors that flew toward us immediately went inside.
I threw the grimoire that I took out from [Item Box] inside again. Hence, releasing it from my hand.
It’s not a mastered [Another World].
If I don’t have the grimoire, then it won’t activate.
More than that, when it’s not activated, then everything inside will disappear.
Because the caster, me, is not inside.
I sweated a lot.
I felt like I was going to die easily at that moment.
“T, the Radon Junior is…?”
I turned around and saw a speechless Guild Master.
“Now! Begin to re-seal it! quick!”
Guild Master panicked but he quickly called the re-sealing magician squad over.
Those magicians went in and sealed the unmoving Radon.
While observing the process, he came to my side.
“Did you defeat them?”
I was barely able to make use of the characteristic of [Another World].
“A, amazing… it’s my first time seeing someone defeat a Radon Junior. Not to mention that there were three of them.”
He looked at me with admiration.
