Chapter 56: Quandary


Yuto immediately switches gears.


Yuto: “Miss Thames! We’ll have to hold out until an Adventurer who can damage the Chaos Slime comes to help us!”


Thames: “Urgh! I guess it’s the only way…”


Thames begrudgingly nodded to Yuto’s suggestion.


She was forced to understand the difference in strength between her and the opponent with that one altercation.


Yuto was the same.


A fight where you are given no options to deal damage to the enemy was beyond hope.


Dannan: "Yutoーー!”


Eliz: “Mr. Yutoーー!”


Right then, Dannan and Eliz arrive on the scene.


They were both out of breath, but one look at the Slime made them suck in their breath.


Yuto: “Mr. Dannan! Please erase your presence to avoid getting attacked, and throw your needles at it!”


Dannan: “GーGot it.”


Yuto: “Eliz, please support the group using your discretion!”


Eliz: “I understand, yes!”


Seeing that they were frozen in their tracks, Yuto hurtles orders at them.


Hearing his voice, they both move into action.


Yuto: “Pino, can you go to Eliz and protect her?”


Pino: “(jiggly jiggly)”


As if to say, “Got it!” Pino began stretching out his body.


He drops down from Yuto’s palm, and he quickly bounces toward Eliz.


Yuto: “Eliz, I sent Pino your way, so he’ll protect you.”


Eliz: “Yes, wait, huh…..? What…..?”


Yuto’s comment startled Eliz into confusion.


You can't blame her.


Pino is a Slime - the least dangerous, weakest Monster.


Yuto asked her to not protect him, but to “be protected by him.”


Anyone would think they misheard at first.


But Yuto’s decision was not incorrect.


Pino’s level is now pretty high.


Yuto doesn't know the exact numbers, but Pino has been an official Party Member of Yuto’s team and recently received a flood of experience points.


It might be due to the Level Up, but Yuto felt through his [Tame] Skill, Pino’s emotions more clearly.


Pino’s Level went up, and now there is distinct clarity in his thoughts.


Pino is a Slime so he has high resistance to any attacks outside of spells.


Yuto guesses that he might be able to block the Chaos Slime’s attacks to a certain degree.


Eliz is the Party’s Healer, and her low defense is concerning.


If the Party’s Healer gets attacked, the battle will dissolve into a one-sided chaos.


She is, for lack of a better word, the Party’s critical weak point.


So Yuto placed Pino, who has high physical damage resistance, there bedside her to protect that weakness.


Yuto is not 100% certain if this will work, but he would rather give it a try than to sit back and do nothing.


In order for an Adventurer to win, to survive, you must utilize everything to your advantage.


Yuto: (Now, all I need to do is…)


Yuto: “ーー{Lightning}!”


Yuto fires his Spell into the sky.


The flash of light stretches high into the air.


Yuto: (Okay, someone should see that and start heading this way…)


Yuto grips his katana with both hands and faces the Chaos Slime.


<<<<>>>>


Dannan circled around the Chaos Slime, and lost count on how many attacks he delivered now. It was more than a few dozen times and threatening to move up another digit.


Dannan: “(gasp)........(gasp).......”


Dannan has equipped the [Naiad’s Glove] which he picked up from out of a Dungeon Treasure Chest.


From a glance, it looks like any regular glove, but this is a Magical Weapon that can create needles according to the will of the wearer.


As long as you have Magic Power left in your body, you can continue to produce needles as needed.


For Dannan who uses throwing weapons as his main fighting style, the Naiad’s Glove was an extremely convenient weapon.


But with every attack, it’s very small but a portion of his Magic Power is consumed.


This wouldn’t be a problem if he was attacking a few times, but stack that by tens several times, and Dannan was at the brink of Magic Exhaustion.


Dannan: “Are they…….still not here……..?”


More than enough time has passed since the battle began.


But still, there are no signs of any reinforcements.


Battle sounds echoed throughout the city.


The other Adventurers were still in the midst of their battles.


The only good thing going for them was that he still had plenty of stamina.


This is because Eliz continued to send {Stamina Charge} his way when he most needed it.


Dannan: (She’s unbelievable….)


Eliz’ judgement was perfectly spot on.


Dannan wasn’t sure if it was because of her experience doing medical rounds around the slums, but right before fatigue was about to slow him down, a {Stamina Charge} would be on the way.


And she’s not only looking after Dannan but has her eyes on everyone here.


She has her finger on the condition of every member fighting against the Chaos Slime and hasn’t missed a beat.


Dannan: (Her title of “Downtown Saint” isn’t a scam…..)


Eliz is still very young.


So as an Adventurer, Dannan thought that maybe Yuto was having to do everything in the Party.


But Dannan realizes that that was because Yuto would take care of the Monsters too quickly, and Eliz just had no chance to show her skill, and it inadvertently gave Dannan a poor impression of Eliz.


He was indeed wrong.


As soon as the opportunity presented itself, Eliz shined in her role like no other Healer.


No matter how he looked at it, Eliz was one of the best Healers Dannan has ever come across.


Yuto and Thames are blocking most of the Chaos Slime’s attacks.


If these two fall, the Chaos Slime will depart from the Water Source, and deliver unimaginable damage to the city.


Dannan: (This thing might even attack Tokmu……!)


As he envisions the absolute worst case scenario, Dannan didn’t care if he was just about to be out of Magic. His body just kept moving regardless.


In general, Slimes are susceptible to Spells.


Dannan’s needles were created from Magic and carry a Magical Attack property.


Even with that, he’s unable to deliver any damage to the Chaos Slime.


Dannan’s Magic Power is just too low.


Dannan: (If only my Magic Power was higher…….)


Dannan has not been able to use the Naiad’s Glove to its fullest potential.


No matter how much Magic he pours into the glove, he gets the sense that he could pour more Magic into each needle.


If he had higher Magic Power, he could pour more Magic into it.


With more Magic Power, there is a chance that he could deliver a blow to this Slime.


Dannan: (.....should I try?)


Under these circumstances, if Dannan uses up a lot of Magic Power all at once, he will for certain pass out from Magic Exhaustion.


But they are already slowly losing the fight.


Even if they all have Stamina, the battle is wearing down their mental and emotional strengths, and it’s only a matter of time before someone makes a critical mistake.


Dannan wanted to try and turn the tables around before that happens.


Dannan grits his teeth, and begins to pour all his Magic into his glove when it happened.


Yuto: “Mr. Dannan, Miss Thames!”


Yuto, who was enduring the Chaos Slime’s attacks patiently, suddenly raised his voice.


Yuto: “Please give me 10 seconds!”
