Leowald put more power into the spell than when he used it against Marione . A small sun-like orb with him at the center dropped from the sky toward his target .
“Here I come! Eat this! [[Awakened Fireball of Truth]] !” (Leowald)
Then it dropped downward; it dropped toward a single boy on the ground .
“Now, what are you going to do Hiiiirooo!” (Leowald)
Hiiro looked up at the fireball and concentrated magic power into his index finger .
Magic again, huh! if it is anything like last time I can sweep it away! (Leowald)
With a loud rumbling sound a mass of pure fire crashed down, like a giant meteor .
Hiiro drew a word and then pointed at Leowald, who just grinned .
Leowald then created a wall of fireballs in front of the Flaming Meteor using the same technique as before . He knew that if the word was to hit the fire orbs, it would dissipate harmlessly .
There could be a good chance that his opponent is trying penetrate the wall . But it seemed like his opponent put on the expression that it was no good .
Then Hiiro started writing another word . Unlike the magic power he felt from the barrier before, it contained a lot more .
“Interesting! I don’t know what you are doing, but if you can stop this than do it!” (Leowald)
As the orb of fire approached Hiiro, Leowald was surprised by the outcome . For some reason, as the ball approached, it grew smaller and smaller until it disappeared .
Before he can recover, even the fire covering his body started to disappear .
“W-what . What was that!?” (Leowald)
It looked as if a balloon was slowly deflating . In order to prevent that he tried to increase the fire’s output but it was shrinking faster than he could recover . Then…
As he stood speechless and watched his revered flames vanish into thin air, Hiiro appeared in front of him and swung his gleaming sword in a beheading motion .
Unaware that his [[Conversion]] was dispelled a large gash appeared from his left shoulder down to his right abdomen .
The pain and chaos sent his consciousness into discord
But at that moment his head heated up (in anger) and grabbed Hiiro’s arm .
Hiiro put on a surprised expression
Forming a hammer with his fist he struck Hiiro’s back which caused Hiiro to drop to the ground .
However, the body of Leowald sustained a some heavy damage; intense pain clearly showed on his face .
He isn’t sure what happened but if he took an attack right now it won’t be good .
A lot of blood was flowing out of his body . It would be grave if he remained in this state too long, so he used [[Conversion]] right away .
In this state the pain will ease, and he’ll no longer bleed . However, he is unable to recover the damage taken . While using [[Conversion]], HP and MP will continue to decrease .
He knew that he wouldn’t be able to fight much longer in this state . He looked for the body of Hiiro which dropped to the ground, and when he couldn’t find it, a furious expression appeared on his face .
Hiiro was scrowling at his last action . No matter how happy he was that the move succeeded, he shouldn’t of let his guard down .
Ouch . . dammit (Hiiro)
Leowald’s attack hit him with surprising force . He thought he landed a fatal attack on him, but didn’t expect him to fight back right away . He certainly let his guard down .
No…if I observe the action carefully, it feels like it was was performed instinctively . (Hiiro)
It would be difficult for someone one to counter attack when they witnessed their ultimate attack dissipate, followed by their opponent landing a fatal attack on their body right after .
At that time, because his eyes were blank, he didn’t think he would be able to counterattack .
However, at that moment life appeared in those blank eyes and Leowald grabbed his arm . He tried to cast a spell, but before he could, his body was sent crashing into the ground .
At that time, when Leowald used [[Awakened Fireball of Truth]] . Hiiro used extinguish (鎮火) and fireball (火球)
With these two words, he extinguished everything related to the Fireball; the small fire orbs that Leowald used to form a wall, the sun like meteor, even Leowald’s power; all of them were identified as “Fireball” from Hiiro’s point of view .
In other words, Hiiro made everything disappear and then he used the [[Conversion]] word on his sword before slashing at his target .
Soon after, he made a miscalculation . First it was Leowald’s abnormal body; it was as if he was trying to cut iron . Even then, he managed to inflict a large wound .
The next miscalculation was the counterattack . The speed was beyond comprehension . Even though he reacted with all his might with his arm being caught, the blow landed on him at about the same time .
Damage wise, even though it was only one attack, it’s force felt like all his opponent’s weight was put into it .
If he fell toward the ground with that much force, his face would be turned into a smashed tomato . Thus, he had no choice but to use the preset [[Protect]] word to nullify the impact damage .
…It can’t be helped (Hiiro)
He active the preset word [[Cure]] to remove the pain . The pain would be troublesome later on in battle . Even if his opponent is in a grievous state, he couldn’t let anything hinder him .
White light spread over his body, and the intense pain from before vanished .
Ha, really, this [[Word Magic – Magic]] has a lot of application (Hiiro)
If he didn’t have magic, he wouldn’t know what to do . He felt that it was good fortune to have an all-purpose unique magic .
At that moment, he felt a strong chill and waves of heat started radiating from behind him
He felt an abnormal wave of bloodlust slowing moving toward him . The closer it got the drier his mouth felt .
Even though, the white light of healing hasn’t disappeared yet, Hiiro turned around and looked at the mass of bloodlust .
Leowald was there . But it was in a completely different state than before; it didn’t even have a facial expression . It looked as if all that it wanted to do was to kill its opponent; it was manifestation of its instinct . Actually, it was like a wild mass of wrath and hatred .
There is… no end to this huh (Hiiro)
It felt like he was trapped by a SSS Rank monster, without anywhere to run .
“Oh man, it looks just like a human magma” (Hiiro)
Some time ago only Leowald’s right arm changed into magma, now his whole body was covered in magma . Even his legs which touched the magma also started to melt . Furthermore, it didn’t react at all to Hiiro’s sarcasm
It is definitely different than before … if I were to be hit by that body, I would be melted right away (Hiiro)
Hiiro judged that it isn’t a good idea to go too close to it . He used most of the words he set beforehand . Thus, he felt that he should strike at this moment; however there doesn’t seem to be a reasonable way to do so .
If he retreated, and then came back, he would be able to finish it right away . However, the current situation won’t allow it . Even then, he felt hesitant to do something like that .
As expected, I’m also a man … (Hiiro)
Furthermore, the challenge of defeating someone with a cheat body like this piqued his interest . After he thought for a bit, to be able to completely control the opponent in this situation would be the best way to proceed . Being forced to do something like that really brought back the joy of fighting a worthy opponent
Whether it was in games or novels, fighting a strong opponent is thrilling . Also, running away in fear isn’t something a man does .
If there was major difference in strength, and the body was in an unreasonable condition then it would be smart to give up . At this moment though, as long as there is a way to win against the opponent, then by doing so …
If I don’t get fired up then I am not a man (Hiiro)
Although, he isn’t sure if his opponent was enjoying it or not, right now Hiiro had a smile on his face .
“…fu, lets proceed” (Hiiro)
With renewed resolution, he focused magic in front of his finger
The magma like monster rushed at Hiiro .
