The labyrinth’s nightmare ④

The Wind Magic of the Kirecock hits the Ede Saine directly.
Although I was surprised because I never thought that it will hit, I understand the reason why the Ede Saine didn’t avoid the attack when the cloud of dust caused by the impact of the magic cleared up.
For the Ede Saine, something like the Kirecock’s magic is not worth to even avoid it.

However, it was able to gain time.
Due to hitting the Kirecock’s magic first, the Rock Turtle that’s slow was able to reach the front line.
The Rock Turtle that has a high defensive ability.
The Rock Turtle is made as a shield, and the other three start to attack.

The Wind Magic of the Kirecock rains from the air, and Suiten’s water breath explodes.
The Febelt attacks immediately after the two attacks hit.
The Febelt that’s excellent in speed and physical offensive ability springs at the Ede Saine.

And, a spear of soil thrusts the Febelt.

The Febelt was not able to react to the huge spear of soil that spring up from the ground suddenly, and it’s skewered.
Immediately after that, the flapping Kirecock falls to the ground.
As if it’s been thrown down.
It collides with the ground intensely as it is, and it sinks into the ground while making an unpleasant sound.
What happened?
The Kirecock is crushed by something invisible as it is.

Meanwhile, Suiten keeps shooting the water breath.
However, the Ede Saine doesn’t mind it at all.
It turns towards Suiten slowly, and Wind Magic was shot.

Not only soil, but also wind!?
In the view of the surprised me, the breath is blown off by the Wind Magic, and the appearance of Suiten defeated.

The only one remaining is the Rock Turtle.
However, the Rock Turtle doesn’t move.
It can’t move.
When I appraise the Rock Turtle after seeing it’s state is strange, it has the abnormal condition paralysis before I know.
Moreover, all of its status falls rapidly.
HP also.
The tough Rock Turtle became a corpse at a short time that can even be called as an instant.

The summoned beasts that have get over many difficulties together with me was slaughtered one-sidedly.
And yet, the thing ruling me now is not sadness and anger.
It’s fear.
It’s pathetic, and it’s rude towards the dead summoned beasts.

Although I think about that, I can’t fight against the fear that springs up from the bottom of my body.
I want to run away from this place quick.
However, as a person who leads the unit, I can’t run away before my subordinates.

My subordinates began the withdrawal in the time that was gained by the summoned beasts that became sacrifices.
However, it’s slow.
I forcibly return the consciousness of Ronant-sama who loses his sense by hitting him, and make him prepare a large-scale Transfer magic to withdraw with the unit.
But still, more time is still needed to make everyone of the unit to fall back to the range of the Transfer.

A few seconds in the meanwhile.
In that few seconds, the nightmare occurs.

The magic of soil and wind flies around wildly.
Even though it seems that it’s shooting at random, each hit kills the soldiers

There’s a soldier who falls suddenly too.
The mysterious attack that killed the Rock Turtle a while ago.
An attack that can even kill the Rock Turtle that has a lot of HP in an instant.
The soldiers can’t endure even an instant, and fall one after another.

A magic flies towards Ronant-sama who’s preparing the Transfer magic.
I become resolved to use up my MP, and I summon a monster again to be a substitute for Ronant-sama.
The magic that begins to be shot many times.
I summon a monster every time.

I take a restorative medicine that recovers MP.
I summon while drinking it.
My MP that recovers gradually.
However, the consumption is more than the recovery.

Magic comes, summon, magic comes, summon.
While repeating it, finally, the summoned beast on hand is used up.
But still, the magic doesn’t stop.
Or rather, the number of magics flew is obviously more than the beginning.

When I look at the surroundings wondering why, only Ronant-sama and I survived in this place.

「It can’t be helped. We will return even if it’s only both of us」

As Ronant-sama starts to activate the Transfer magic, the Ede Saine has approached to our front.


The fired spear of darkness.
It’s a magic filled with a frightening amount of magical power that the soil and wind magic from a while ago are seen as a child’s play.
It’s aiming at Ronant-sama.
Because Ronant-sama was concentrating on the magic construction, he can’t avoid it.
I have used up all of my summoned beasts, so there’s nothing that can be used as a shield.

It was an instant.
I use my body to stop the spear of darkness.
My body bursts open.

The spear of darkness penetrates through my body, and attacks Ronant-sama who’s at the back.
Ronant-sama’s right arm and a part of his side blew off.
Because I entered between the spear and Ronant-sama, the trajectory seems to have shifted a little.

Ronant-sama activates Transfer while having an anguish expression.
My view distorts.
I shut my eyes instinctively, and when I opened my eyes, it was not inside of the labyrinth.


The person in front of me becomes surprised, and stiffens.

「Someone, those who can use recovery」

Ronant-sama talks to the people in the place while distorting his face in pain.

Here is the empire’s magic laboratory, huh?
Immediately, the surroundings becomes noisy.

「Endure a little more」

Ronant-sama applies recovery magic on me.

「Although almost half of your upper body was blown off, you did well to still be alive with this」

Although I thought to say something, blood came out of my mouth.

「After all, I have to return the hit from you. So, don’t die until then, okay? (www.onecrazyhouse.com) 」

My body recovers little by little.
My HP also has escaped from the critical area.

Treatment is also given to Ronant-sama after the people who can use recovery magic.

I take a breath of relief, and became exhausted.
Although there’s a large sacrifice, we survived.

    This isn’t a nightmare. It’s just a massacre.
    A nightmare is one of torment and despair. All they saw is that the spider has a lot of skills, and suddenly that’s enough to be a nightmare?

    That’s not really fun to read, you know?
    4 chapters just to say: “And then she tossed some rocks at them and used her magic-eyes to stare them to death”.

    Aiight, I should’ve known by now.

    This was really insightful to read for me. It really tells just how frightening Kumoko is to the humans…Kumoko may seem cute to us because we know her thoughts…but really she is a vicious beast. Not even kidding.
