Several hours after that.
‘Yuji! I found a blue one!’
A single slime had noticed the presence of a blue Lesser Fire Dragon in the forest.
It was, without a doubt, the dragon we were looking for.
‘Are the blue ones strong?’
‘They’re supposed to be—but I guess we’re about to find out.’
According to Master Gaiger, they were quite a bit stronger than normal Lesser Fire Dragons.
But I didn’t know how much stronger—but it was probably best to request backup.
‘Can 10 of you gather over here before we fight?’
And so the slimes gathered close to the Blue Lesser Fire Dragon.
When there were 10 slimes gathered together, I could transfer magic to all of them at once, which would make the attack 10 times more powerful.
Like that, we should be able to avoid a situation where there wasn’t enough power behind the attack.
‘All right, let’s go! Magic Transfer—Water Discharge!’
I chanted. And then all at once, the water was discharged from all 10 slimes.
Thick steam rose from all over the Blue Lesser Fire Dragon’s body as it screamed in pain.
However—it did not fall.
Not only that, but it started moving against the torrents of water like it was going to attack the slimes.
‘Ahhh! It’s coming towards us!’
‘Yuji! Help us!’
From the looks of it, Water Discharge would take a long time to take down a Blue Lesser Fire Dragon.
In fact, it didn’t even look like it had been weakened by much.
…I guess this was the time to use it.
‘Magic Transfer—Area Freeze – Medium!’
I said. And all 10 slimes activated it at once.
And then—The Blue Lesser Fire Dragon let out a scream before it started rolling around on the ground.
It had looked quite strong even when being blasted by water, but now its movements were becoming very slow.
This time, it was working well.
