Taikutsu-girai no Fuuin Jutsushi ch 27


27. Trump card

One aim is to hit him and put a character stamp…!

Maybe his Mana is higher than me. No, it’s too late to consider that now.

There is only one winner. 

If that doesn’t work, I will just give up and die.

But of course, he’s also wary of my approach. He may know the requirement of the sealing technique to some extent.

Whenever I approached, he tried to push me back with a large-scale attack. When I moved 10 steps closer… he made another 10 steps back.

But not bad. I consume far less Mana.

I just try to get closer, but he returns with an apparently over-attack.

“I’ll never let you get closer! Absolutely, only you…!”

Frightened eyes.

Apparently, he scared of sealing technique. Maybe he got a trauma.

“Are you okay? I mean, you used a lot of Mana.”

I cover my legs with Red Mana and launch an attack with <Lutta>, but he pushes me back with lot amounts of bones.

When I’m being pushed back by the waves of bones, the {Corpse Emperor} created new white-bone dragons and red-blooded dragons.

“Hah! Keep struggling Sealer!!!”

“Thank you for the large-scale attack!”

A mixture of white and red dragons approaches me.

Defense is out of the question.

So, I put strength into my legs to avoid it.

“What?!”

But, skeleton arms that crawl out of the ground grabbed my feet.

“I’m sorry…!”

I have no other choice than to receive the attack of a red and white dragon head-on.

Even if I keep my feet on the ground, it’s meaningless, so it’s better if I release the strength on my feet and receive the impact.

――Keep your consciousness together, Seal…!

It’s over if you faint.

I know it’s a lot of damage. Be prepared for the pain, Seal! You have to endure…..!

And, the most painful attack in my life until now hits me.

Bone debris bites into the skin, and a torrent of blood reduces Mana.

Two dragons drag me around.

“Urg..?!”

A shock runs on my back.

Apparently, my back hits the watch tower. The bone and blood dragons have scattered away.

“nngh―― urgh?!”

I spit out the blood that has accumulated in my mouth.

“Yeah …”

I’ve been feeling it for a long time, but… This {Corpse Emperor}… obviously not at the level I can deal normally right now.

He’s special.

Mana, experience, abundance of skills … everything is exceptional.

“I’ll not let you rest! Sealer! Next is ‘level 2’. Not only the body, but also the skill when the corpse still alive would be reproduced!!!”

Living corpses are created again.

8 bodies in total.

It’s not that many as before… but I still need to keep alert.

The living corpses used the Mana of Creation to create a lump of water at one point.

―― “ ‘Seaside Rulers’ “.

Probably the former members. Frederica said that her guild members mainly use water magic.

The lump of water swelled and reached the amount of water that comparable like a river.

…If it hit me directly, I will definitely die…!

“Moo――vee !!!!”

I can’t move. Am I running out of blood?

Oh, this is bad. I can’t put any strength to my body.

“If so, never mind then.”

――Alright, I don’t need to rely on blood anymore.

The Mana of Domination is circulating in the body. I’ll move my body with Yellow Mana.

My body ―― movee …!

“Aaaaahhhh!!!!”

A whirlpool of water is shot at me.

I move my body with the Mana of Domination and avoid get hit head-on. But I still get hit in my right shoulder, blown away, and pushed into the third rows of buildings in the settlement.

I’m being pushed until the building at the eastern end.

Break through the wooden wall and fly to the wall opposite the door.

“Arrgh…!”

Getting hit on the back of my head, my consciousness is fading.

I shake my head to shake off the darkness that comes into view. Tap my cheeks twice to keep my consciousness.

“Where is this……”

Corpses were lined up on the floor of the house.

“Is it a food store …!”

It’s not just normal corpses. It doesn’t smell bad. The gloss of the skin is not dull. There are no cracks too. It must have been being keep fresh. As Frederica said, it seems to be processed.

―― But, there are no living humans.

I guess, for the monsters, the corpses in this building just like a food stock… Gross

Somehow, I feel a tremendous amount of Mana pressured the corpse. 

…Is the Mana stored in the corpse in some way?

Suddenly, the worst situation comes to my mind.

“…..”

But, at the same time…. One measure to deal with this situation comes to my mind.

————————————- 

I walk out of the building.

The {Corpse Emperor} is waiting behind eight living corpses.

“Hoho, you’re still alive…?”

The {Corpse Emperor} looks nervous.

He’s out of breath. And, when he sees me alive, he become pale.

I was in that house for about a minute now. During that time, there was no pursuit.

The reason is simple, because he couldn’t afford it.

“If you do so many big attacks, your limit will come faster…. You don’t have that much magic left anymore, don’t you?”

The {Corpse Emperor} sits on the throne and stares at me.

“It’s because you use your technique in the same way as in your heyday. You Bastard, your Mana should have reduced to zero once with that seal ―― And, the Mana you gained by eating 500 people, where most of them were non-magicians, it must be less than you had thought….”

But, to be honest, it’s really horrifying.

In his heyday, when his Mana is almost could be said unlimited….. The quality and quantity of the corpse under his control must have been much worse than it is now.

Which means, old man and the guy called Saurus, who defeated this guy in his heyday were really crazy.

“Ten years ago, I could blow someone like you away with just by pointing my little finger…!”

“Well, you are strong. Perhaps you don’t have to be afraid to fight someone like me――But no matter what kind of monster you are, if the conditions are met, you will be sealed. After all, I am a Sealer.”

“How could you still feel like winning?! Defeat my pawns, all of these magicians??… You don’t have the abilities to do that!!”

“… What would you do if I said I have?”

“What?”

I put my finger in my pocket.

“Just at what is written, it’s my ‘trump card’.”

I take out a talisman with ‘死’ written on it. [TN: it means Death]

It is the only Magic Item that I received from my master.

The ‘crazy’ ring left by the old man ――

” ‘OPEN’―― <Osiris Orb>…!”
