Chapter 54: The Targeted Wizard


Edward: “Sorry, Igni! We’re late!”


Igni: “No, it’s okay.”


Igni reunites with Yoori and Edward.


Yoori is guided by Floria and is taken to the room that Rose was staying in.


Floria: “It’s here.” Yoori: “[Those who crawl and swarm - come out now]”


Yoori finishes his incantation, and the Dark Soul Cloud-like being appears for the second time.


It floats and jiggles in the air and awaits for Yoori’s command.


Yoori: “[Follow the traces of magic]”


The Dark Soul Cloud jiggles and shakes, and then immediately heads towards Floria.


Yoori: “NーNo! Not that one! [Follow the other trace of magic]!”


The Dark Soul Cloud sags a little as it shrinks, and then exits outside through the window.


Igni and his group follows close behind and dives out of the window!!


Igni initiates his [Equip Flame Engine] {Accel Boot} and lands in the air once and BURSTS!!


Igni chases down the Yoori’s Dark Soul Cloud!


Behind him, Floria follows close behind.


Edward casts a [Physical Enhancement] Spell on Yoori, and runs after Igni and Floria.


It might take them longer, but they should be able to catch up.


Igni turns his attention back to the [Dark Soul Cloud] and flies behind it when a Spell from the ground pierces the [Dark Soul Cloud] from underneath!


Igni: “What?!”


Floria: “Sir Igni! Below us!!”


With Floria’s words, Igni looked below, and there were 3 Wizards huddled together in a back alley.


In their hands, another Spell was already about to be released.


Igni: “[Intercept] {Fire}!”


The 3 fired a {Fire Lance} together, and Igni stops it with his {Fireball} and drops down and lands on the ground near them.


He looks again at the shadows where the 3 Wizards were hiding.


Igni: “Who are you?”


“Hehe. You….you’re Igni, huh.”


Igni: “Yeah, so what?” “Give us the [Saint] NOW!”


One of the three spoke.


The biggest of the three steps forward and reveals the blade of a knife.


Igni: “[Launch] {Fire}”


Igni carefully hits only the knife with his Spell.


“Was that a [Quick Draw] {Fire} Spell?!”


One of the men shrieks in surprise.


Igni: “It’s nothing that fancy.”


Igni quietly retorts.


A [Quick Draw] {Fire} Spell is a technique used to shrink the time it takes to initiate a Spell from its incantation.


But for Igni, he does not need such a technique to initialize his {Fireball} Spell.


Igni: “[Equip Flame] {Ignite}”


This was how Igni was chained down by God.


But in exchange for his limitation to be able to use just one Spell, the effect and power of that Spell and the speed in which the Spell can be initiated was extraordinarily increased - one of the few merits of being a [Specialized Unique Spell Caster・Spell One].


Igni: “[Explosion] {Fire}”


Igni places a {Fireball} in his palm, and places it against the body of the man before him andーーthe {Fireball} explodes only in a single direction!!


The tall man Igni had to look up to see is blown backwards!!


“Get him!! He’s only a [Fire] : [F] compatibility!”


Igni: “How do you know that?”

Igni tilts his head as he creates five {Fireball}s behind him.


“{Water Wall}!”


One of the remaining men put up a Water barrier in front of them.


But that would be simply……..


Floria: "[Cloudy Waters] {Muddy Stream,}”


Before Igni finishes his incantation, he hears another voice from behind.


The next moment, the water bubbles…….and the {Water Wall} begins to turn into a muddy color and <BAM!!>, it transforms into a fist-like shape and slams the two away!!


Floria: “Only the biggest fools would try to use [Water] type Spells around me.”


Igni: “What was that just now?” Floria: “I hijacked their Spell.”

Igni: “Amazing.”


A technique that Igni didn’t know about just came to light.


That is why she is called an [Extreme].


Igni turns back around, and looks down upon the one man that is still conscious.


Igni: “How do you know about us?” “You think I’ll tell you?!”


Igni turns and meets his gaze with Floria.


Floria nods affirmatively.


<<<<>>>>


“IーI’ll talk! Please! I’m sorry! I was wrongーー!!”


The water moved like a living creature and wrapped itself around the man’s ankle and lifted him off the ground and………...held him upside down.


Blood started pooling in his head, and with a reddened face, he begins to beg the [Extreme] and the boy next to her.


“IーInformation was passed down to us!”


Igni: “Information?” “At the tavern or the Adventurer’s Guild…..there’s a lot of posters saying they’ll hand 100 gold coins to anyone who brings the [Saint] and 50 gold coins to anyone who catches [Igni] who knows her whereabouts! And when we found you, we…!!”


Igni: “50 gold coins? You get quite a bit.”


Igni mumbles quietly as if this has nothing to do with him.


He has very little interest in money in general, so he could care less about this though.


Igni: “But capturing the [Saint], huh. And getting a 100 gold coins on top of that. They’re being generous.” Floria: “Sir Igni, that’s most likely a camouflage.”

Igni: “Camouflage?” Floria: “Yes, their true intention is to have Sir Igni captured.”


Igni: “Could you explain?”

Igni asks Floria kindly.


Floria: “The [Demon Race] has hold of Lady Rose. And the [Demon Race] had intel about us for some reason that they received from someone else. And after other [Extreme]s including myself were captured by the Marionette’s [Quasi-Magic]......who do you think will make a move to get Lady Rose back?”


Igni: “......it would be….me…..”


Floria: “Yes. So giving out false, misleading information like this, many Wizards from all over with any bit of confidence in their skills will try to capture you to draw out more information so they can obtain the total 150 Gold Coins after they capture Lady Rose.” Igni: “That makes sense.”


Igni thinks for a moment.


Floria: “Should we retreat once to rethink our plan, Sir Igni?” Igni: “No, we’ll have Yoori use his Spell once more and…...we’ll proceed forward.”


Floria: “The enemy knows about us. Would it not be too risky?”

Igni: “They’re putting in a lot of work trying to interfere with us because they’re weak."

With Igni’s words, Floria’s expression changes slightly.


Igni: “If they were strong, they would not need to sneak around like this. But because they cannot defeat us coming at us head on, they create these diversions and traps to intercept us. If we use Yoori’s Spell and head straight into a fight, we’ll have a higher chance of winning. That’s what I think.”


Floria: “SーSir Igni…”


Igni: “Miss Floria. You are thinking one step behind. That is why you are uncertain of our next step <just a little bit>. Please have confidence! You are one of our truly great [Extreme]s!”


Igni explains to Floria with some encouragement.


Floria; “BーBut…..” Igni: “Don’t worry Miss Floria.”


Igni takes hold of Floria’s hand and his eyes capture hers.


Igni: “<I am here with you>”


Floria: “O…….oh…….”


Igni: “Let’s go. There’s nothing to be afraid of that can stand in our way!”


The next moment, Igni senses bloodlust from behind him.


Florai: “[Aqua Barrier] {Water Wall}!”


<SPLASH!>


Floria’s Water Barrier splashes as a metal blade is stopped by it.


“What the?! You can stop that?”


Igni: “Who is it?!”


“I came to...take Igni away.” Although they’re speaking plainly, Igni detects a slight dialect in the speech.


The girl who was hiding in the alleyway and observing Igni was most definitely not from the Kingdom. As if to prove so, he saw her black hair and dark eyes.


“Now, prepare to die, sir”


Her combat suit was tight against her entire body.


But to make her movements easier, there were slits cut below the arms and thighs, and you could see her skin underneath.


Igni: “..........it……..it can’t be…….”


Igni saw the girl from behind the [Aqua Barrier] {Water Wall}.


A person who was only rumored to exist.


He heard many rumors from Lucas, but this was Igni’s first time to meet one.


A spy from a small country in the far east……...and only the females are called this way.


Igni: “It’s a Kunoichi!”


“Hm? I’m impressed you know, sir.”


The girl smiled joyfully at Igni’s recognition of her.

CHONKY Notes LiT (Lost in Translation)


Kunoichi - Japanese Female Ninja. Had to Wiki this, but Wiki Japan says the term was popularized from Samurai Fiction novels back in the 1960s. They took apart the Japanese Kanji for “woman” (女) and broke it apart into “ku” (く), “no” (ノ), and “ichi” (一). Put it all together (you’ll have to use your imagination a bit) and you get the kanji for “woman.”
