Apparently, It Didn’t See Me As An Enemy
“So…how should I stab it…”
Even now, the dragon was absorbing more and more energy and becoming stronger.
I could tell even without using the slimes’ senses. It was an overwhelming amount.
‘Yuji. We’ll fight too!’
‘You guys. You’re still okay after being hit by that blast?’
The slimes had been running from it just a moment ago.
I didn’t think they would be able to fight properly.
‘We’ll be fine with your magic, Yuji! Slimes are quite tough!’
‘We’re not afraid of explosions or anything! Well, except for magic!’
‘Magic can kill us, so you must protect us from it!’
Apparently, since the slimes were similar to liquid, they were strong against physical attacks.
On the other hand, they were weak to magic.
…If our enemy used magic attacks, I could cast an ‘anti-magic barrier.’
With enough layers of ‘anti-magic barriers,’ I cold even contain Hellfire of Death.
It would be able to block most attacks.
But I couldn’t make an infinite number of them, so I would have to decrease the number of slimes.
‘I won’t be able to protect you all if you are so scattered! Move around in groups of 10!’
They said as they separated into 10 large slimes.
I would be able to protect this amount.
As for the Proud Wolf, he had left us and was hiding in a safe, shadowy place.
…It was a smart decision.
I would defend myself as well.
‘Anti-magic Barrier,’ ‘Anti-physical Barrier,’ ‘Mitigating Barrier,’ ‘Anti-heat Barrier.’ And I had 5 layers of them.
Up until now, I had used these barriers to surround a wide-open space, but it was also possible to have them in the shape of living things.
When I used it on myself, they appeared just slightly over my skin as if they were armor.
However, the magic consumption was quite strong as I made so many layers.
And since I had just used Hellfire of Obliteration, I had lost quite a lot of MP.

…Well, I should consider myself fortunate that I still had that much left.
I wasn’t really in danger until the numbers were negative.
That’s when my HP would start to take a hit. But it was much better to chip away at your life killing a dragon than to do it by staying up all night working.
Besides, my HP would recover as long as I didn’t die.
“Alright. Let’s go.”
I said as I put the slimes on my shoulders and rushed towards the dragon.
It would be a hard fight, but…what I had to do was simple.
I just had to get close to the dragon, stab the shortsword into it and use ‘Hellfire of Death.’
As there was only one way to win, it might make things easier for me.
But then again, this was a strong enemy.
Up in the air, the ‘Blue Dragon of Delight’ opened its mouth and roared.
Then it looked down and spat out a fireball towards the ground.
It really did look like a normal fireball.
If it was similar in nature to the fireballs that I used, it would burn an area that was about 30 meters in diameter.
