“Gazuna!! You, what on earth did you do?” (Sarona)
Sarona-san also sensed something unusual was happening. She seemed to be impatient. The elves around fell into panic because of the tremors and the sound that was getting closer.
“Hey-hey what’s going on?” (Ruruna)
“I don’t know either.” (Yuyuna)
The two elves besides me also seemed to be restless.
“What is happening? If you want to know, why don’t you ask that guy?” (Wazu)
These two dropped their jaw when I pointed my finger at Gazuna. Following the two, the other elves was also directing their line of sight at him. Meanwhile, Gazuna was simply looking downward while covering his mouth with a hand.
“Gazuna don’t play dumb. Explain yourself!!” (Village Chief)
The village chief was enraged. Hearing that, Gazuna released his hand from his mouth while slowly raising his face. Then, he said it with a detestable smile on his face.
“You must be worried!! You stupid and puny elves!! Do you want to know what’s going to happen? Then, I’ll let you now because I’d like to see you all in despair.” (Gazuna)
(Just tell us already!)
“Right now, with the power of this black ball, more than hundreds of monsters which live on the foot of that mountain, will be flooding over this place!!” (Gazuna)
“ “ “ Whaaat!? “ “ “
The Elves around were astonished upon hearing that and panic started to spread.
He said it was the monsters from the foot of mountain, so I thought “Oh, well”. I mean, those guys are weak so I don’t understand why are they so much in panic.
Some of the elves tried to escape to their homes.
“HAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Suffer!! Suffer!!! Run like an insect, you stupid elves! !!” (Gazuna)
“Do you realize what you just did, Gazuna?” (Sarona)
“I understand it very well, Saronaaa!!” (Gazuna)
Sarona-san furiously tried to stab him with her knife many times but was stopped by his long sword and his robe that exhibited the hardness of iron.
“Hey, we need to take shelter in the house for the time being.” (Yuyuna)
“Bu-But Sarona is?” (Ruruna)
“It’s fine. She’s protected by the barrier. No matter how many monsters come, I’m sure they won’t be able to break it.” (Yuyuna)
“That’s right…..” (Ruruna)
“Wazu, we need to leave this place immediately” (Yuyuna)
Yuyuna told me to take shelter inside his house.
I wanted to remain in the place because I was worried about Sarona-san. But considering the two, I decided that it was better to follow them.
(Well, fortunately, their house is close to this place.)
Sarona-san was attacking Gazuna with kicks and slashes. But because of the automatic recovery magic and the defense power from the robe, no decisive blow was made.
(The automatic recovery of the robe was finite so I don’t think Sarona-san will lose. It’s just an ordinary robe without magic power after all. I’m sure but I’m still worried.)
“Why, why did you do such a thing?” (Sarona)
“Why it is? It’s because of you Sarona!! I became like this because you are here!!” (Gazuna)
Those words stopped Sarona-san’s movement for a moment, and the long sword got a chance to graze her left arm.

Finally, the monsters invaded the village.
The vast number, more than a hundred monster, filled and surrounded the village. Some monsters were also attracted by the barrier. The Elves that escaped to their home, saw this scene while trembling in fear. The children were crying.
The face of two elves besides me also turned pale. They were discussing whether they could do something about the situation or not. I returned my eyes to the barrier after confirming the surrounding situation.
Sarona-san focused her line of sight to Gazuna after looking around at the situation around her.
“Is this what you want?” (Sarona)
“That’s right. But it’s just the beginning.” (Gazuna)
“You said I was the cause. What do you mean?” (Sarona)
“Sarona….. Since a long time ago, without putting any efforts, people called you a genius. I was working hard, I was also excellent compared to others, but those people were always looking at you, only you….. You won’t ever understand my feeling. You are just an obstacle for me!!!” (Gazuna)
Gazuna begun to seriously launching attacks. He repeatedly launched slashes with his long sword. Sarona-san stopped them with her knife and sometime avoided them.
“Hahaha!! Hey, what’s wrong? Why don’t you use your magic? You can’t get out of the barrier if you don’t kill me. Don’t you want to help the people in the village?” (Gazuna)
“It’s impossible, right? Because I’m also a person from this village and you cherish everyone in this village!! But, is this alright? Do you have time to worry about it? If you don’t end this fast, everyone other than us will die!!” (Gazuna)
“Why you…..” (Sarona)
Sarona-san raised her left hand to the front, but stopped and didn’t move from that position.
“Fufu! Hahahahaha!! How unsightly! It’s ridiculous! Your magic is too strong and could kill me! That’s right, Sarona!! Your kindness is your weakness!!!” (Gazuna)
“ . . . . . “ (Sarona)
Sarona-san bit her lips until blood flowed a little.
(Yup. It’s decided.)
I look back at the two elves besides me and raised my hand while smiling.
“I’m going a bit.” (Wazu)
“ “ Huh? “ “ (Yuyuna / Ruruna)
I said those words and jumped from the house.
