As the man and I traded blows, I muttered.
“I see. I see.”
“What do you see? Did you see that you’re about to lose?”
He asked with a grin.
“No, not that. You get weaker when you multiply, right?”
“What makes you think that?”
“Well, if that wasn’t the case, you would bring out even more of them.”
“I understand how you desperately wish that were true.”
At the same time, another one appeared behind my back. Perhaps this was his way of proving that I was wrong.
However, I had anticipated this. The moment that he appeared, I grabbed his right wrist with my left hand.
All of them attacked the same way upon appearing, so it was easy to do this.
“Your attacks are simple. You idiot.”
And then I activated Drain Touch.
It was quick, and I sucked in everything that there was to suck.
All of the men shouted at the same time.
“So, you really are connected.”
They weren’t illusions. They were all his body, and he could control them.
Or perhaps it was more accurate to say that they were connected magically.
Otherwise, their attacks would be simple, and their magic output would be very low.
These had been adjusted and their power distributed carefully, so that it would not be very obvious that they were weaker.
But while they were weaker, it was true that they were still very skilled. You could not lower your guard around them.
I continued to suck in his magic. The one I was draining directly was rapidly becoming dry.
At the same time, the others were drying as well, but at a slower rate.
And their movements also became slow.
Eric and the others were quick to take advantage of this.
And so without further delay, the others cut down to shreds.
