The Armor Was Very Impressive
‘Woah! So fast!’
The slimes were very excited by this incredible speed.
I was a little worried that they would be blown off…however, the slimes clung to my shoulder carefully and the wind pressure did nothing to dislodge them.
As for me, I was clinging to the Proud Wolf.
He was going so fast that I was likely to be injured if I fell off.
Actually…it would be a disaster if I was hit by a carriage.
‘Slow down if you sense any danger.’
‘Understood! …But I’m fine! I could run like this in the middle of a forest!’
But it was true. In spite of the increased speed, the Proud Wolf never crashed into anything.
Perhaps the monster armor didn’t just raise his speed. Perhaps it also gave him the reflexes to control that speed.
…As I wondered about this, the slimes started shouting.
‘There’s a monster!’
‘It’s a bear! I’m scared!’
Apparently, a monster bear had appeared.
With the Proud Wolf’s current speed, we should be able to race past it… But, I also wanted to practice something on it.
‘Should I continue running ahead?!’
‘No, I want you to slow down. I want to test the armor’s ability during a real battle.’
And so I told the Proud Wolf to slow down.
I didn’t want to let this prey escape.
The Proud Wolf said as he slowed down and approached the monster.
The monster bear that had come out was more than twice the size of the Proud Wolf.
It was still small compared to a dragon, but much larger than most monsters.
I guessed that it was C-Rank.
‘Thi-this is bad! Please hurry up and kill it!’
The Proud Wolf and slimes were very afraid.
…The Proud Wolf was always afraid of monsters of a higher rank.
But, well…a monster of this strength seemed perfect to test the new abilities.
