Chapter 94 – A terrible strategist!?
“It’s no use. You can’t control my dolls with that.”
I turned to face the cold, unfamiliar voice.
There were two red lights shining.
This was no ordinary person…
And I didn’t come to that conclusion purely by instinct. I could feel the sudden swell of magic that was like blazing fire.
What emanated from the darkness was more powerful than the huge floating Golem we had fought previously.
“It-it seems dangerous?”
Fule’s magic had increased a lot through using crystals, and she too could sense the danger behind those lights.
While it was so sudden, Taran and Mappa prepared to fight.
However, I was mostly surprised to hear someone speak in a language that I understood.
And so in answer, I called out.
“Who are you?”
My voice echoed in the dome-shaped chamber, and the cold voice replied.
“Me? You mean me? Hehehe…”
There was an eerie chuckle that soon exploded into a boisterous laugh, as if the stranger could no longer hold it back.
“Hahahahaha! You are wise to ask! Indeed, everyone in this world should want to know my name! For I am the embodiment of the god of war. Everything in the universe is under my control. The wise and the great…strategist, Aries!! Do you tremble!? Hahaha!!”
The stranger called Aries burst into laughter once again.
I and the others could only watch in stunned silence.
What the hell was wrong with this person…
“Uh…you’re a what?”
I turned to look at Shiel.
Perhaps she would know something.
However, Shiel looked confused and didn’t seem to recognize the voice.
As we waited, Aries’s laugh faded away.
“Ha… Hmm. That is not much of a reaction?”
The voice sounded greatly disappointed.
“Uh, umm… Aries, was it? We’re…”
I was at a loss for words, and spoke quietly.
However, the stranger had not missed a word, and quickly fired back.
“Hmph. There is no need for you to introduce yourself. You all came here in order to kill me, isn’t that right?”
“Huh? N-no. We didn’t come to fight! If we have insulted you, I apologize. And we will be leaving soon.”
“No, that won’t do… I have been waiting for so long…for this very day! Now, go! My friend!! Seize them!!”
As the stranger shouted this, the thing with the red eyes showed itself.
It was likely a Golem that was covered in Mithril armor.
Its sword and shield were probably made of Mithril as well.
However, unlike most Golems, it was not very big.
It was pretty much the same height and build as me.
“Yes, I suppose one is not enough to make you afraid…in that case!”
