Defending the Water Dragon Settlement II
I saw the blood running from my stomach.
A vampire, likely a High Lord, chuckled.
His blade was covered in a black liquid. Probably poison.
I had no time. I had to kill the enemy before the poison made it impossible for me to move.
“The enemy is using poison! Be careful!”
I called out to the others.
The water dragons replied.
The vampire saw this as his chance.
The High Lord shouted as he attacked.
At the same time, the large evil dragon attacked as well.
“A good combination. But it won’t work.”
I said as I cast gravity magic on both of them.
Their charge was interrupted as they tumbled to the ground.
They fell and were pressed into the dirt.
And then I sent ten magic spears into each of them. The evil dragon was hit by every single one.
But the High Lord jumped out of the way. He had dispelled my gravity magic.
He was clearly no ordinary High Lord.
I would bet he was the same rank as whatever it was that Eric and Goran were fighting.
The High Lord attacked me with his poison sword.
I kept my distance as much as possible.
“Grulf, the sword is poisoned. Be careful!”
Grulf seemed like he understood. He backed away and kept his posture low.
He darted quickly from left to right and searched for an opening.
“You are just humans! The inferior race!”
The High Lord screamed. Then he charged towards me at a speed that most people would not have been able to catch.
He was in front of me in a flash. And our swords clashed.
I only barely blocked the attack. But before he could follow up, I grabbed his neck with my left hand.
“Wh-why are you still moving? You should have been poisoned.”
“Yes, my movements have slowed down a lot. As the inferior race, we lose energy when poisoned. So if you don’t mind, I’ll take some of yours.”
And then I activated Drain Touch.
The High Lord screamed. In a second, he turned into a shriveled old man.
Now he tried to escape. The sword dropped from his hand as he started to turn into mist.
That’s when Grulf jumped in. His fangs sunk into the High Lord’s ribs.
He wailed as I had never heard anyone wail before. He could no longer transform.
The parts that had turned into mist were then absorbed by my Drain Touch.
And then I used the Devil King Sword to cut off his head.
Cutting with the sword also absorbed his lifeforce. It was very useful at such times.
