Isekai Monster Breeder
Chapter 125 – VS The Black Swordsman (I)
“Lemis, let me give you an advice. Leave the castle now and run away somewhere else.”
The first one to open her mouth in the middle of everything that was happening was Carolina.
“This castle is the last fortress of the mermaids. I can’t let the demon hunters get hold of it.”
“So, you’ll fight?”
“Of course. Mermaids always have, and always will.”
I know how Lemis-san feels.
Mermaid Castle is over 1,000 years old.
So to speak, this is the witness to the mermaid race.
“I will be clear. I’m afraid your forces can never compete with Crow, no matter how hard you try.”
“Well, could Caro know anything about this Crow guy?”
It’s strange that Carolina is so cautious of others.
Could it be that Crow is famous among demons?
“Yes. I fought him once before and lost.”
It has to be a lie… right…?
I was surprised knowing that Carolina had fought Crow in the past, but what was even more surprising was that she had been defeated.
Needless to say, Carolina’s fighting ability is one of the best among the demons.
I didn’t think she would ever be behind a human, no matter that he had been given the job of Hero.
“When did this happen…?”
“Not long ago… before I met the Master. Until then, I had been living in a demon village, but it only took one attack from that demon-hunter for everything to fall apart.”
“Could it be… when Caro was about to be sold by the slave merchant…?”
“That’s right. That happened because I was defeated by Crow.”
I didn’t know that.
That was certainly something I’d been wondering about for a long time.
How could a demon as incredible as Carolina be made a captive of the slavers?
But it’s clear now.
Fighting Crow is not a good idea at all.
Being just one person, with his unfathomable power, Crow’s ability allowed him to defeat multiple demons, including Carolina.
“The enemy is too much. We must retreat.”
“No. No matter how strong they are, they won’t change my mind. Either way, if we lose the castle, my men and I will have nowhere to go.”
Lemis-san looked determined.
What should I do?
Even if we fought, defeat would be likely.
No matter how much advantage we have at sea, the opponent is a cheatin hero who can overwhelm even Carolina.
There’s only one person who can beat Crow.
…And that’s me!
I may not be able to win if I fight head-on, but we have the Capsule Ball, a divine skill that only takes one hit.
It would be no different than Crow’s cheat fighting skill.
“Well. Then I’ll take care of Crow.”
Therefore, I chose to borrow a skill with a great increase in strength.
The bed was slowly raised while the chains that held my limbs were broken to pieces.
“I can’t believe it! Those chains are made in a special way and are hard to break even for the higher rank demons…!”
Thanks for the reaction, as expected.
I started to feel embarrassed when I got so great.
“…Master, if you could destroy them all the time, why didn’t you stop Lemis’ plan sooner?”
I hate maids who are so perceptive.
The big show was ruined by Carolina’s retort.
