Chapter 57: A New Attack
Yuto was observing the battlefield from a bird’s eye view.
Thanks to Eliz’ [Stamina Charge], everyone is still able to move without any trouble.
But Thames’ and Dannan’s movements are starting to show signs of fatigue.
For Dannan, it’s probably due to Magic Exhaustion.
Yuto felt the slight Magic Power emanating from the needles he created.
Because he has been repeatedly attacking with those needles, Dannan, who is not a Spellcaster, is starting to exhaust his Magic Reserves.
Compared to the beginning of the fight, Thames has significantly improved in her dodging and evading.
She’s using evading techniques involving her long tail that is common in the Wolf Race - something Yuto would never be able to copy.
But a fight where a single blow would land a critical hit is extremely mentally tiring.
Because of that, Thames’ movements began lacking the finesse and grace Yuto saw in the beginning.
Yuto: (We can’t keep this up much longer……)
As Yuto deflects the Chaos Slime’s attacks, he pulls up the Skill Board display to look for a solution.
Yuto: (Should I risk upgrading the Lightning Level…? It’s a huge gamble though, and it’s likely to fail.....)
It was when Yuto was about to upgrade his Lightning Level.
At the corner of his eye, he caught something on the Skill Tree.
[Swordmanship Lv 5 ┬]
He didn’t know what this end symbol meant.
He guessed that maybe a new Skill would appear as he cleared a Quest.
Yuto: (But…….that may not be the case.)
When Yuto distributed points to his Fundamental Skills, all five Fundamental Skills were consolidated into [All Abilities Enhancement].
Maybe it’s the same as this, and if he upgrades a set of Skills, maybe a new Skill would appear?
Yuto: (But if that’s the case…..how…..?)
As he contemplated, an idea suddenly struck him hard.
As he realized <the meaning of the shape and design of the Skill Tree>, Yuto’s doubts faded, and he was convinced that he was right.
Yuto wanted to distribute his Skill Points.
But in order to do so, he would have to use his hands to manipulate the screen.
He would be holding his Katana with just a single hand.
That would not be enough to hold back the Chaos Slime’s attack.
The Chaos Slime is a B-Rank Monster.
Yuto cannot let his guard down for even a second.
The only other option is to rely on his friends.
Yuto: “Mr. Dannan! Miss Thames! Please give me 10 seconds!”
With 10 seconds, he would be able to distribute the Skill Points.
As Yuto makes his request, Dannan and Thames both reply.
Dannan: “What? Yuto, just 10 seconds?”
Thames: “If you need a break, we could give you a minute.”
Both faces were drenched in sweat, but they still threw jests back at Yuto.
They still had spirits to fight.
Yuto felt their determination strongly and nodded.
Yuto: “10 seconds should do.”
With a signal, Yuto let’s go of his Katana with his right hand.
As he lets go of his Katana, Dannan and Thames began attacking more fiercely.
Dannan threw multiple needles, and Thames provoked the Chaos Slime by throwing in several challenging feints.
The Chaos Slime reacted to Thame’s challenging battle cry.
At the same time, the Slime’s bloodlust that was sticking all over Yuto the entire fight left him.
As Yuto watched the two distracted the Chaos Slime from a bird’s eye view, Yuto distributed the Skill Points as he prayed earnestly that this will work.
>>Skill Point: 15 → 3
>>Spellcasting Lv 2 → 5
He raised the Spellcasting to Level 5 and then….
A new Skill appeared on Yuto’s Skill Tree.
>>Swordsmanship Lv 5 ┬ Magic Swordsmanship Lv 0 NEW
>>Spellcasting Lv 5 ┘
Just as Yuto was about to distribute points to the Magic Swordsmanship…
Dannan: “ーーEliz, watch out!!”
One of the tentacles headed towards Eliz with blazing speed.
There was no one standing between Eliz and the incoming tentacle.
Yuto, Dannan, and Thames all move, but it’s too late.
Eliz braces for the impact, closes her eyes, and flinches away from the tentacle.
The tentacle reaches Eliz and….
“ “ “.......huh? ” ” ”
With a jiggle, the tentacle was deflected upwards.
The one who deflected the strike was Pino who was sitting on top of Eliz’ head.
Pino intercepted the strike, and with his body, he redirected the tentacle strike upwards.
Yuto immediately cuts down the tentacle that flew upwards.
Yuto: “Great job, Pino!!”
With Yuto’s compliment, Pino jiggles his body happily.
Grateful for the save, Eliz is casting [Heal] to Pino.
Eliz received zero damage.
Seeing that she was okay, Yuto lets out a sigh of relief.
And at the same time, he grips his Katana with both hands.
All preparations are complete.
>>Skill Point: 3 → 1
>>Magic Swordsmanship Lv 1
The moment he Leveled Up his Skill, Yuto understood vaguely how to use the Skill.
It was the same sensation and feeling as when he used the Spell Learning Scroll.
Yuto raises his Katana against the incoming Chaos Slime.
The next moment…
The Katana began flashing with bright light.
The brilliant flash of [Lightning] runs through the length of the Katana Yuto holds.
Maybe it was the light…
The Chaos Slime flinches and moves back slightly.
And Yuto is not one to miss this opportunity.
He jumps towards the Chaos Slime.
He instantly closes in the 10 meters (32 feet) to zero proximity.
The Chaos Slimes stretches out its tentacles.
Dannan: “Stay down!!”
Thames: “Take that!!”
Thames and Dannan block the tentacles that were in the way.
Now, nothing stands in the way between Yuto and the Chaos Slime.
Yuto swings his Katana and…
And cuts through.
A blinding light fills the air.
Multiple audible <ZAPS!!> echo as electricity ripples through the Chaos Slime’s body.
Yuto immediately turns around and braces for the Slime’s retaliation.
But the Chaos Slime convulses several times, and like a deflating balloon, it shrinks down slowly and melts away.
ーーMonster Slaying, complete.
Confirming the Chaos Slime’s death, Yuto sheaths his Katana.
After the Chaos Slime melts and disappears, Dannan and Thames fall to the floor in a tired heap.
Although they had the energy to jest during the fight, they exceeded their limitations long before.
Yuto: “Miss Thames…”
As Thames tried to catch her breath, Yuto stuck out his fist towards her.
Seeing the fist, Thames looks away.
But her tail swung back and forth, and she lifted a fist to Yuto.
They lightly bump fists.
Yuto: “Great work. Thank you.”
>>You have completed an Emergency Quest.
>>Rewards will be distributed.
>>Level 30 → 32
>>Skill Point 1 → 5
