[Vol. 5] Chapter 8 – Gargoyle



Three Gargoyles danced over our heads.
They have an abominable appearance. Is the reason for their silence them being stone statues, I wonder?
 It’s even weirder that they attack while not uttering a single sound.

“Here they come……Shoot now!”

 At Crescent Moon’s command, a sling and a bow were fired at once.
 The arrow which Crescent Moon shot hit the right Gargoyle’s wing which aimed for Doji.
 The Gargoyle lost its posture while trying to attack for an instant because of the shock.

“Oops-a-daisy!”

 Not missing this chance, Doji jumped up and swung his axe down on it.
 The fellow that got blown down by the shock hastily tries to fix its posture in the air.
 Mmm, it’s rather resilient to not get torn from that.
 However, the damage seemed to take its toll on it.

 Pick slung a stone with her sling at the Gargoyle which came from the furthest end of the hall.
 The stone leaving the sling which got buffed by the beautiful Priestess of Darkness Kitora exploded as soon as it hit.
 As it wasn’t able to come over here anymore this attack had enough power to confine it.

“This is great, isn’t it?!”

“Right? Well, though it’s simple magic it’s useful. You, shall I bestow this onto your sword as well?”

 Kitora turned towards me and asked me proudly.
 A Great sword that explodes whenever it cuts something is dangerous and I can’t bring myself to use something like that.

“No, I’m good”

“What, how boring. It seemed interesting.”

 While saying such things Knopf shot her storm magic towards the Gargoyle on the left.
 The Gargoyle got rolled up in a cyclone.
 Because of its hard skin this, too, seemed to be ineffective but it lost its balance.
 But he kept pushing towards me even while being like that.
 Okay, let’s try and see if flames are effective against you, shall we?

“Fire Sword”

 I call Reus and chant the incantation.
 The Great Sword I held in both of my hands was instantly covered in flames.
 I slashed at the Gargoyle heading towards me with the sword coated in flames.
 Bang!
 A strong shock as if I hit rock rings through my hands.
 Isn’t this too hard?
 If this sword wasn’t made out of Oricalcum it would have absolutely shattered.
 Oh well, it may be more common to smash things instead of cutting them with a great sword like this.

“Oh, you did it, Akatsuki!”

 For a moment, I took my eyes of the enemy and unintentionally looked at the blade before Crescent Moon’s voice brought me back to my senses.
 When I looked back at the Gargoyle it fell and hit the ground.
 It seems like my sword hit the root of its wings and now couldn’t fly anymore because they are half torn off.
 Looks like my author’s cheat is in good health, huh?
 Anyway, I’m glad I was able to deal some damage.

“I’ll finish it – – Stone Spear!”

 The moment Knopf cast her magic a pointed, inverted cone-shaped, stone spear appeared over the Gargoyles head.
 The lump of stone which exceeds 40 centimetres in diameter is more than a meter long.
 Isn’t that thing considerably heavy?
 Even though it’s magic, for something like this to float in mid-air.
 That gigantic spear — too humongous to call it just a spear — dropped straight down on the Gargoyle.
 Dooooon!
 It blew up dirt and dust as it crashed into the Gargoyle.
 This is the power called weight.
 Despite the Gargoyle originating from a stone statue and in conclusion being hard, it got smashed into oblivion not even leaving a piece of stone in its place.

“Uoo, this is amazing as well!”

 Crescent Moon raised a surprised voice addressing the power of Knopf’s magic.

“It’s impossible to aim with something of that size so I just dropped it down on it”

 Knopf answered casually.
 Despite it being magic one can’t completely ignore the mass, huh?
 By the way, from where did you take the stone to form this spear?

 While I was troubled about such things, Crescent Moon cooperates with Doji and tossed around one of the Gargoyles.
 Crescent Moon shot the wings which seem to have low defence and Doji strikes it while its speed was low.
 That fellow was visibly weakened by the repetition of those actions.
 Its wings were already torn up.
 There didn’t seem to be an issue there.

“Big bro, here comes the next one!”

 The black Gargoyle which got confined by Pick’s sling came over here.
 Meanwhile, stones were exploding around it one after another.
 Black magic sure is handy.
 Let’s experiment with it a little more.

 I instructed Reus to convert the flames of my Fire Sword into heat.
 The flames disappeared from my sword and before it flared up with a red-hot shine.
 As it would become too soft if it’s too hot I asked Reus to be careful regarding that.
 I tried to slash at the Gargoyle which came into the range of my red Great Sword.
 ――Oh.
 There was less shock than a while ago and as an effect of the heat, it somehow was able to cut.

“Big bro, it works!”

 Yes, I think so, too.
 It made a crack rather than a big scratch on its body and the Gargoyle flew back in reactionary motion.
 It couldn’t fly high and its movements seemed pained.
 I can do this!
 I flew towards it and slashed at it in a flurry.
 Kashing!
 The Gargoyle’s body split in two under the shock and then shattered.

“We’re done over here as well”

 Crescent Moon and Doji blew down the right Gargoyle safely, too.
 It somehow seems like an inorganic monster.
 I thought such things while I watched the pieces turn to dust.

“Those Gargoyles are the same as golems and are artificial demonic beasts made with black magic”

 As if she read my mind Kitora explained this to me.
 As I thought, this dungeon is managed by someone and probably made by the same person, isn’t it?
 This seems to be complicated.
