A powerful blast of fire magic comes out of Lisa's wand.
The energy, which looks like a dragon's breath, passes over us!
The heat burns my skin
If I expose myself to it any longer, it is certain that I will suffer great damage.
We split up and ran around the room while avoiding the attacks.
Kaede's magic drastically lowered the temperature inside the room.
However, Lisa immediately uses magic to raise the temperature back up again.
As Frau's hammer came down, Lisa reflexively dodged it.
Taking advantage of Frau's attack, I sneak up on Lisa to deliver a killing blow with my sword.
A screeching metal sound resounded.
My sword was blocked by her wand.
"Lisa, what is your purpose?"
"Didn't I tell you? To dominate the world. I will make this place mine. I will kill your friends, and you will watch how I play with their lifeless bodies, how my pets will eat their flesh, and then I will make this world a place of pain and suffering, a beautiful amusement park of agony. "
"I don't understand."
"Well, that's because you're boring."
Lisa stepped back
Then she released a fireball the moment she hit the ground.
I cut the ball with my sword and attacked Lisa again.
"You're so annoying! Just die already!"
A scorching heat emanated from Lisa and caused the throne room to explode.
This situation is seriously dangerous.
To protect Frau and Kaede, I keep blocking Lisa's attacks with my great sword.
My skin is slowly burning, and my legs can't help but fall to the ground.
At the same time, Kaede uses her healing wave, and the burned skin is quickly restored.
The light around her dimmed and Lisa appeared, transformed.
Two horns grew on her head, and a purple pattern appeared on her face and legs.
And in her hands she held two demonic swords.
"Sain was one of the few men to possess a demonic sword. Having such a weapon under his power he could use it at his mercy, causing great power to be released that would grant him up to 50% level increase. This weapon in the hands of a powerful demon can increase their power by up to 90%. That is to say, with this, my level is now 1200."
I knelt down because of the pain caused by Lisa's attacks.
If it weren't for Kaede's skills, I would have died.
I knew there would be a level increase with the demon swords, but 1200 is a much higher number than I expected.
"Kaede, Frau, you guys leave me here. Run away."
"What are you saying, Master!?"
"Yeah, don't say stupid things like this!"
"I am so happy to have met you, and to have had so many adventures. But it's time for you to be free, and live your lives as you wish.
I cast a spell that the slaver taught me to cancel the slavery contracts.
Kaede and Frau's master-slave contracts have just been cancelled.
Now they are both free. They are no longer obliged to be with me.
"Thank you both, for everything. It was a lot of fun."
My greatest pride and joy are my slaves.
They were very charming and great company.
I only want you to survive. Nothing else matters to me in this life, I will sacrifice myself for your sake, and your future.
I was slapped on the cheek.
"No! I promised my Master that I would be with him forever and ever! That's what the Master told me that day when he fed me sweets!"
Kaede was crying.
The gentle and always smiling Kaede.
She was angry with me from the bottom of her heart.
"I will fight! Not because I am a slave, but because this is my will! I will follow Master Toru to the end! Even if I should die, I won't regret anything, so please don't tell me to walk away from you!"
My cheek, which she had struck, was hot.
I did not suffer any damage as such, nor did I feel pain, but psychologically, it did hurt.
"Look, Kaede is crying because my Lord said something horrible. You don't always have to think about everything yourself, you're not alone, we're not with you out of obligation."
"Uh, how did you know I thought that?"
"It is because Frau is the Lord's slave. I know you very well. If I ever run away from a place like this, everyone in the village will throw stones at me while saying; 'This silly tulip table! She's a disgrace!' "
What is a tulip table?
I still don't understand fairy insults.
But I understood that the two of them were determined to share my fate.
This makes me very happy.
I feel like I'm getting stronger and stronger.
After all, I don't want to die. I still have a lot of things I want to do.
Haha, I don't know what I was thinking. This character isn't like me.
"Have you said goodbye yet?"
"Thank you for waiting, Lisa."
"Okay. Seeing your face in a state of utter despair was something I would've enjoyed, but I see you decided not to leave, so... First, I'll hack off the fairy's limbs."
With astonishing speed, Lisa turns to Frau.
But I quickly blocked her attack and our swords clashed again.
Meanwhile, Kaede unleashes all her magic.
Lisa dodged each attack with great grace, and switched her target to Kaede as soon as she landed on the ground.
The moment her foot touched the ground, she propelled herself with the intention of killing Kaede.
"I won't let you!"
I wielded my sword and lunged toward Kaede to block Lisa's attack.
Lisa changed her target and aimed her attack at me. Our swords clashed, generating sparks and a screeching sound.
"It doesn't make sense. I'm sure you've leveled up a bit, but why is your power the same as mine?"
"That's because... I have the hero's job."
"That's impossible! The hero should be Sain!"
With a pale face, Lisa takes a step back.
Lisa probably doesn't know that I can copy people's jobs.
The Hero's job has the ability to reduce the Demon King's level down by one per second.
Of course, this is a temporary effect.
But it goes without saying how scary it is.
It has been almost five minutes since the job was activated.
Actually, as I was talking to Kaede and the others, Lisa's demotion had already begun.
To be honest, I thought it would be hard to fight while I was putting it down, but thanks to Lisa giving me some time, the situation improved a lot.
Lisa's current level is about 900.
On the other hand, my level is 868.
The ability that the Hero's job possesses makes it so that, should the demon king fight him for a long time and continue to weaken, their power will become as enormous as the legend says.
"My level! What 's going on!?"
"We're almost equals now. I thank you for letting your guard down."
A great storm of clashing swords has begun.
I used all the moves and skills I learned from Lord Mugen, and headbutted Lisa.
The blue flames emitted by Kaede cause Lisa's body to freeze.
Just above, Frau was already swinging her hammer down.
Frau's hammer hit Lisa's head.
The floor beneath her feet formed a hole and the entire castle shuddered.
Lisa was brought to her knees by the heavy blow.
His forehead was dripping with blood.
"I made the mistake of underestimating you as a foolish, good-natured warrior. I admit it. Toru, you are the right man for me."
"Will you leave Sain to be with me again?"
"Yeah, I've been thinking about it. I've always thought you deserved to be a hero more than that stupid bastard of a man. I know you're angry, so I'll do anything to apologize... I'm willing to marry you, as I had promised."
Sweat dripped from Lisa's forehead.
Meanwhile, her level continues to drop. Kaede and Frau block any escape routes.
She was surrounded by us and seemed impatient.
"Then let me see the ring I gave you when I proposed."
"Huh, yeah, I'll show you now."
Lisa shows me the ring on her finger.
"That's the ring Sain gave you."
"Uh, yeah, well, you know..."
"Did you forget that you threw my ring on the ground?"
After leaving the tavern, she had thrown the ring far away in the meadow.
That's why you obviously wouldn't have it.
Another minute passes.
Lisa's level is now 840.
Now my situation and hers are reversed.
"Forgive me, please!"
"When you were about to kill my parents, did they also beg you for mercy?"
"The day I was betrayed by all of you, I left without saying a word. And from that moment on, there was always something I've wanted to tell you."
I buried my sword in Lisa's torso.
I mumbled the same words Lisa had said to me that day.
