Chapter 215: Breakwater Protection, Fate Is not on Our Side Part 2
Yeah, let’s do just that for now.
A rope ladder was sent down from the top of the ship’s deck, and after I put Emul on top of Akitsu Akane’s head I urged them to climb to the deck as fast as they could.
「Come on, Alva! Hurry it up! It should be a piece of cake to you, so step on it!」
「What the hell do you think you’re doing!」
「I’m waaaaaaaaaaay stronger than I look, so I’ll make sure that you all get on without trouble.」
「…… My friend, just don’t go dying on us now!」
Even if I die, I am still going to get back home in one piece……」
I send a quick wink towards Rei and then I turn around to face the wave of “Blue” that was approaching us fast.
「I’m really confident in my battle skills, so pay no mind to me and just get on with it!」
If “Blue” was just a field effect or a gimmick, what I was about to do was basically pretty much useless.
…… But I think that this whole “Blue” is an actual monster.
And it actually matters not if it’s a single monster or an amalgamation of monsters.
What is important here is whether or not it has the concept of aggro implemented to it.
That’s why I need to conduct a quick experiment to confirm it.
First method; try to throw an item at it.
Second method: activate “Utsuro Mikagami” secret technique and see what happens.
If this thing has the concept of aggro implemented into it……
「It got caught!」
The swarm of incoming “Blue” overruns my clone in no time, confirming to me that this thing indeed does has the concept of aggro implemented into it.
However, it was only a few seconds later that I have come to understand that this knowledge would amount to nothing here.
After all, it turns out that “Blue” was so massive that it managed to overrun not only my clone, but the whole beach in a matter of seconds, and with little to no effort.
I feel like the saying quantity over quality was not even doing this thing justice here.
I mean, just look how fast it spreads! If you leave this thing alone to its own devices, the world itself might find itself in danger! Come to think of it, if this thing would overrun the whole planet, since this is an MMO, how would the devs address this issue Planet reset Or maybe a post-apocalyptic continuation
「This is going to become really not good in a moment here……!」
「Alright! My turn to evacuate! So long, “Blue” you sucker!」
As long as there is no way to physically inflict damage onto this thing, I’m afraid that there is nothing I can do here to fight against it.
It would be a whole different matter if our battle potential was higher, but with Alva and Rei being worn out after Kutanid battle, I’d say the wise move here is to withdrawn as fast as possible.
「Yeah, that’s what I thought…… Try to catch me now! It’s ten million years too early for you to do that!」
The wave of blue color washes near my legs, trying to grab a hold of me.
At the same time, by caffeine-depraved brain started to scream, demanding a well-earned rest.
While the waves of “Blue” attack me as if they were trying to devour me, I trample it all and run away.
I was wondering how I was able to muster so much energy to fight back and run like that, since I was sure that my stamina was at its last legs right now.
Apparently, when you are desperate you are capable of achieving things you would not be able to do normally.
「Uuuuuuoooooohhhhhh!!! If I won’t make it, what will happen to me Will I die alone in here」
Come to think of it, once I die here, my respawn point should be still in Lulilas, right I don’t want that! I’d hate to live in here, but I’m totally okay with the idea to come visit this place from time to time to farm.
Three meters left, I felt as though something moved under the water’s surface.
Two meters left, I felt that the water that would normally cling to my feet to some extent clearly grabbed a hold of me.
One meter left, come on! I can still make it……
But then it was as if someone laughed at all of my efforts.
The next moment, the sea right behind me explodes with a high pillar of water.
No, it was not quite the explosion.
It was as if something has hit the water’s surface with tremendous amount of energy
Turning around, I could see a gigantic transparent tentacles crushing the waves of “Blue” with nothing but sheer force of its mass.
No, it was not a tentacle! That was……!
「Why are you even alive, Buccal Cone……!」
It was an upside down Buccal Cone that was being thrown around at full force by the one who was wielding it.
I jump in the air! What follows was…… the legendary Superhero Landing! The one that was supposed to be so terrible on your knees!
「Sanraku! Are you alright!」
「You…… Do I…… Look like I’m…… Okay to you……! Oh **, my poor fingers…… My poor knees!」
SHAKE! While the whole ship shakes around, I turn towards the place where the tremors were coming from.
And even though I did not lose all that much HP by that landing of mine, right about know I felt weak in the knees and could feel my whole body become paralyzed…… It was one of the Seal Bosses……
Its head opens up and closes in an unnatural manner, the one that was surely not human in the slightest.
Clione looks up to me warmly and turns back towards the “Blue”.
Then it raises its hand in the air and in the next moment the waves of “Blue” that were attacking it gets pushed back by waves of mysterious energy, further and further back into the city.
「…… Is this supposed to be some sort of an epic event scene」
Movie guns and movie knives usually kill in one hit, so best not to provoke them needlessly……」
A movie weapon.
Like the name suggests, it’s a weapon that can kill someone in one hit during a particular scene, even though it could have been established that a certain character could only be killed by being melted inside of a pool of lava.
However, taking Kutanid’s power into consideration, it’s not all that weird that dead Bosses were brought back to life.
Once it pushed the “Blue” back into the city, Clione retreats back into the city as well…… No, it went back to its respective tower, one of the four that were at the city’s edges.
Then it just stands at its top, waiting and watching.
「…… The other bosses are there as well.」
You can’t really make all the details from here, but just as Rust said, there were figures standing at the top of every single tower.
Seal Bosses…… I wonder what was it Was it Kutanid that sealed part of itself just for fun, or was it that the bosses were sealing away the “Blue”, deep inside of the Abyss under the city
It should be all in the World Truth Book, but let’s forget about it for now.
「Hey, guys I didn’t wanted to bring that up, but now……」
「…… What is it, Mold」
「This ship…… Don’t you think it is about to capsize any minute now」
The ship was suddenly grabbed by Kutanid’s giant tentacles.
Then, as if to display their full power, the tentacles tilt the ship diagonally and start to push it towards the surface.
「Everyone, grab a hold of something here! Quick!」
As I say that, a strong inertia starts to affect us, as the ship that was supposed to sail horizontally started to move vertically at a high speed.
As we were moving up more and more, we could see the view of Lulilas, once a beautiful underwater city, now a desolated rubble and mixture of both grey and blue.
All thank to the “Blue” rampaging around its streets.
But there were also the four towers, shining brightly and emanating waves of energy that was keeping the “Blue” contained within the city’s walls.
The four towers and the light shining at their tops.
Once an island, now turned into the underwater city at the bottom of the ocean…… Lulilas was once again dragged into the Abyss, taking the “Blue” with it.
The reign of the city’s Lord continues uninterrupted.
