Chapter 47 – Destruction of a Technique
A slash with multiple shockwaves is delivered from the great hero’s divine sword. Even Rena, the ancient hero, had great difficulty in identifying each of the slashes.
Just moving is not enough to avoid it.
She repeatedly used transference technique that was comparable to forbidden technique, and releases offensive techniques while moving outside the range of the mighty divine sword’s power.
It was obvious that she would soon be prevented by the divine sword, so she moved on with her transference.
However, just a moment after she moved to the destination, she saw Claude in front of her.
She evaded the countless slashes from the divine sword in the nick of time and swung her twin swords as she moved behind him.
But it cuts through the air.
Claude jumped right next to her and unleashed his full force, and Rena shifted just before the direct hit.
As soon as she moved a few dozen meters away to get in time, a storm of wind passed by Rena’s body.
If her body had been even slightly out of alignment, she would have been caught in the storm and her body would have been ripped apart.
(He can read the destination of transference magic? That’s impressive for someone with so little magic power.)
That was what Rena thought at the moment.
When she moved her legs and backed up her body just slightly, she saw Claude in front of her.
She immediately crouched down to avoid the blow that was about to chop off her head.
Claude used the momentum of the big swing and spun around to unleash another blow.
She immediately uses the transference technique to avoid it.
After moving to the transfer point, Rena looked at Claude without making any clever moves.
There’s no doubt about it. That man has perfectly captured the slightest blur of my body or a momentary gap caused by the blink of an eye.
A gap of less than a moment would be a perfect opportunity for Claude.
The sword that Rena holds is made with magic equivalent to forbidden magic, but in front of that divine sword, it can’t even be used for spur-of-the-moment defense.
There was no way to block the great hero’s slash, so she had no choice but to attack with the momentum of cutting him down.
(No matter how much of a prophet he is, someone this young…)
She evaded Claude’s slash, which came at her with explosive speed superior to that transference technique of her.
Blood was flowing from her cheek from the blow she had just received. The wound has already been closed by the half-majin’s amazing healing power, but there is no time to even wipe the drops.
Claude’s eyes lit up with determination.
For the sake of those he must protect, he has a strong determination to slay the ancient heroe he once admired. It’s not just a matter of stopping her. If he didn’t seriously try to kill her, he was the one she was going to kill.
The strength of the great hero in front of Rena surpassed even that of herself when she invaded Tenebrae.
Instead of losing all the blessings of the gods, Rena became a half-majin through Lucifer’s ritual.
The blessings of his blood far surpassed those of ordinary gods.
Rena’s ability now is definitely better than it was during the all-out battle with Tenebrae 500 years ago.
She couldn’t help but grit her teeth.
In Tenebrae, she was given mighty power, youth and life that would equal eternity.
She has acquired various fighting skills and knowledge as a demon.
She didn’t want to admit that her nearly five hundred years of study were less than the power of the young hero in front of her.
Now, the power is still competing. Neither of them was mortally wounded.
It only caused a few scratches, but there was something to be concerned about.
(This man may not be serious yet.)
Even Rena, who always assumes the worst, noticed something strange for the first time in her life.
The blonde general was quite exhausted.
Cold sweat was running down his cheeks, and his breathing was somewhat ragged. However, this was not due to the battle.
Sh e knew he was exhausted from when he was still hesitant to fight.
Perhaps he was affected in some way when he failed to guard the temple.
Rena had been watching the events that had taken place here since the creation of the dimensional rift that had opened up in the sky.
The Fourestier platoon gathered, the Zenan Dragon Kingdom appeared, and a disagreement over the handling of the cocoon that had covered Satan led to a battle.
It was amazing how Claude, who appeared right after the carnage caused by the dragonriders, overran more than a hundred dragons, but that alone should not have been enough to exhaust this great hero.
It’s likely that something happened while guarding the temple.
At that time, a dimensional rift appeared shortly after a very a very familiar sensation emanated from the direction of the temple, though not as overwhelming as divine sword Revisistra.
A power in the divine realm that Lumiere, Lucifer’s first wife, constantly emits from her body.
There was no way that the divine energy emitted in the city had not anything to do with the dimensional rift.
Lucifer told Rena not to enter the battle in the city, but to keep an eye on the situation, probably because he expected such a situation to occur.
–That fact the great hero wasn’t at his best.
What would happen if this fierce sword fight was in his perfect condition?
And what if, he comes at her with all his might, overcoming even that exhaustion?
It would be too much for her to take on.
Rena was calm and determined, but not intimidated.
If she can buy a little time, that’s all that matters. Even if it means risking her life.
This is the command of the Demon klKing, who is her beloved husband and to whom she has devoted everything.
