We were taken to the village chief’s house, and told how they were attacked by the wild boar.
Apparently, a person from the village was found trying to hunt a large boar cub, and after being pursued relentlessly, it was able to locate the village.
The fields of the village were ravaged, and the villagers and many others who were trying to hunt were victims of the tusks of the big boar.
It is said that the reason why the village is now deserted is because the villagers, fearing the big boar, have shut themselves up in their houses.
Even though the villagers were trying to survive, from the big boar’s point of view, it was its children were attacked first. Considering that it is still going on now, the anger at that time must have been considerable.
“It’s hard to say. It makes me think which side is right and who is wrong.”
“It’s none of our business.”
I assured Earlve, who had lost her way, that we was on the right track.
“There is no justice or evil in a world of eat or be eaten. There is only kill or be killed.”
“So, Chief. When will the big boar attack?”
Cutting off Earlve’s words, I throw my words to the village chief. I understand what she’s trying to say, but it’s a waste of time right now.
“If it’s as usual. It will appear near sunset. Until then, you’re welcome to stay home and relax.”
I nodded at that and was shown to the room I was allowed to use and laid down on the bed.
Then Earlv comes over to me lying down with a very unconvinced look on her face.
“Rox. It’s about earlier. ……”
“This is a fight between a human and a big boar, each fighting for what they want to protect. If I had to guess, I’d say they’re each working for what they think is right.”
Then I glanced over to Earlv.
“So which side are you going to be on?”
“Well, that’s the village side, of course. ……”
“So don’t dwell on it. Save your strength for tonight’s battle. There’s nothing more useless than someone who can’t move when the time comes.”
And with that, I turned my back on her and closed my eyes. Because there’s nothing more to talk about than that.
“–You’re so wise, Rox. Too bad you’re only level 1.”
That’s a shame. I’m now at level 5 after a series of encounters since this morning, though.
I take a nap for a few hours, then get up and finish a light meal.
During the light warm-up afterwards, Earlv asked me with a curious look on her face.
“Hey Rox. With your strength, I don’t think you’ll have a hard time, but why are you being so thorough in your preparations?”
Perhaps Earlv is trying to say this. She wondered why I had to go so far when it was a one-hit fight anyway.
Well, I’m only dealing with one raging big boar, and that’s it. ……
“There’s no harm in being on guard, I suppose. You never know what might happen in a fight.”
“Is that how it is?”
“That’s the way it is.”
And just as my body was lightly warming up, I heard the earth shaking from afar.
“It looks like it’s coming”
“Let’s do our best, Rox!”
Leaving the village chief’s house, we scuttled closer to the sound.
In order to prevent any damage to the village, we want to intercept it as far away from the village as possible.
After some runniy, I saw it just outside the village
I don’t know exactly because it’s still a little far away, but I’d estimate it to be at least three meters tall, twice my height. A big boar, I thought, is just what it sounds like.
“Earlv. Can you restrain it’s movement?”
With that, Earlv turned her hands towards the big boar.
As she chanted this, ivy grew from the ground and entwined itself around the hind legs of the big boar.
The wild boar, whose legs are taken off, slams his nose against the ground with momentum.
Confirming this, I instantly activated [Peerless].
After a moment, a rainbow-colored aura surrounds me, and my power overflows.
I leapt and approached the big boar with the speed of an instantaneous movement, and I launched an uppercut at its nose.
The moment my fist hit the big boar, its face flew off with a splash of blood and it’s body soared high into the sky.
Then, with a thud, it lay on the ground without power.
“Oh, is it over?”
Just as the effect of [Peerless] wore off, Earlv rushed over to me.
“Ah, I know it’s not a big deal in front of your skill.”
Once again, I shudder at this skill of mine.
This power that can slaughter even a monster that is considered to be equivalent to C rank in a single blow is something extraordinary.
Then I started to dismantle the big boar.
This is because it will provide food for the villagers for the time being, and the tusks and bones can be made into armor, or at least, turned into money.
By the way, it seems to have been a male, and I cut off the testes well. If I take it to the apothecary, it will turn into a nourishing and tonic drug.
Besides, if you want to fit it in an item box, you have to make sure that the amount to be brought is sufficient.
An item box is a form of spatial magic that allows you to store things in a different space.
“Hey, Earlv. What’s the capacity of your item box?”
The capacity is determined by the total amount of magical power of the person. By the way, my capacity at level 1 is enough to fit one self-defense sword
“Well, it’s just barely enough for one big boar.”
She tells me this after rummaging around to see if there’s something in there to some extent.
“I see. I think it’s pretty much in.”
I think it’s a decent magical power to say that this fits in the whole.
From the way she has been fighting, maybe Earlv has a high aptitude for magic.
“I kind of feel like I’ve beaten the Rox for the first time.”
“Alright. Here, stow the ones that have gone through the dismantling process.”
The two of us dismantled and stored it all together, and finished storing everything in about an hour.
“It’s finally over.”
Phew, said Earlv, wiping away the sweat.
“Let’s go home then.”
Is it my imagination?
“What’s matter, Rox?”
Earlv looks into my face. Didn’t you notice the noise earlier?
Just as I was about to say nothing, I hear the same sound again as before.
This time, Earlv noticed it too and looked at my face in a panic.
“What is that sound?”
I can hear the slight uneasy in her voice.
The sound of thudsing got closer and closer. Eventually, when the sound came closer and closer, our eyes could see it clearly.
“It’s, the big boar…”
Earlv’s voice was completely unhinged. I’m in the same state right now. The sweat on my back is out of control.
I thought I’d defeated it, but somehow another big boar came towards me.
Even in that situation, I think about the cause in my mind. I wonder why I am in this situation.
Then I remembered the village chief’s words and laughed dryly with hahaha.
How could I have mistakenly thought that there was only one big boar that was rampaging? I can’t help but laugh at my own stupidity.
“How could I not notice? The father is not the only one who gets angry when its children are attacked!”
With a loud squeal, the big boar, thought to be a female, began to charge toward us.
