There Were A Lot Of Monsters
‘When you arrive, I want you all to climb on the outer walls of the town and look outward! And try to maintain an even distance from each other!’
I sent the order to the slimes.
This would be my first time creating a barrier of this size.
There was no time for rehearsals…but I had a lot of slimes, so it should be fine.
–While I was contacting the slimes and making preparations, the Adventurers continued to fight in order to protect the town.
“All of you! It’s just three more minutes that we have to hold the line!”
They said as they held back the monsters from rushing into the town.
As time went by, the number of monsters that pushed against them increased…but they somehow managed to hold them back.
—And then three minutes passed.
‘I’m ready when you are!’
‘Good! Proud Wolf, you should come inside now!’
So saying, the Proud Wolf slipped passed the Adventurers with my concealment magic, and entered the town.
At the same time, the guild workers gave the order, and the Adventurers began to retreat into the town as well.
Now, the only thing that was outside of the walls was the enemy monsters.
“Magic Transfer–Magic Transfer Barrier!”
First, I surrounded the town with a barrier.
At the same time, to prevent the force of the magic from spreading out into the sky, I set up a barrier outside of the wall that was the same height as the wall that the slimes were on.
“…Hellfire of Death!”
I chanted. And then all at once, the barrier that surrounded the town became completely red.
There seemed to be a short pause, and then there was a thunderous boom as flames exploded everywhere.
“So this the fire of a dragon…”
“How can a barrier be strong enough to withstand that…?”
The Adventurers cried out as they watched.
After a while, the flames and smoke cleared, and I could see through the slimes’ vision.
Just like when I had used Hellfire of Obliteration the last time, the ground was red hot and all the monsters surrounding the town had turned into ash without exception.
