Next to them, Haine’s scimitar was blocked by the four pickaxes that Taran was carrying.
While Haine was fast, Taran was keeping up with expert precision.
And then Taran discharged its webs all over Haine, immediately restraining him.
Furthermore, the other kobolds had fishing nets thrown over them by the Golems and goblins, and then Rienna’s thunder magic paralyzed their bodies.
Ash had his doubts upon witnessing this, but Erevan’s vicious attacks did not give him much time to consider it.
And so their battle continued for a few minutes longer.
When I reached the entrance to the cave, I saw that everyone was gathered at the reclaimed ground.
Fule was with me and immediately asked,
“Wh-what’s going on?”
“There’s a boat. Someone must have arrived. Let’s go.”
Considering the sounds and voices I was hearing, it was possible that they were fighting.
I didn’t know who the enemy was yet, but it was clear that we should hurry.
But it turned out my worries were for nothing.
Because when we arrived, the fight had already ended, and most of the kobolds had been captured.
However, I did see a thin, ash-colored kobold being launched into the air by Erevan.
The kobold tried to search for the curved sword that he dropped, but Mappa had already picked it up.
The kobold saw Mappa looking at it curiously, and his shoulders fell.
“Tsk… So this is the end. Ere, you have defeated me. Take my head and offer it to the sons that fought so bravely…”
“I wish that I could. You have no idea how much. …But I cannot.”
It sounded like these two knew each other?
But the atmosphere was very heavy…
Well, in any case, it seemed that no one had died on our side or the kobolds.
Rienna or Baris must have decided that it would be wrong to kill them.
As I looked around, Rienna noticed me.
She shouted, and everyone turned to me.
Erevan and the other goblins all went down on one knee.
Of course, the ash-colored kobold looked at my face.
“A hu-human? …The Berdan tribe are kneeling before a human?”
“Ah, umm… I’m Heal. Lord of this island. Who are you?”
“I am… I am called Ash.”
Said the gray kobold who clearly did not grasp the current situation.
It was no wonder.
There were goblins on this island. And a giant spider and golems as well.
And then he learned that the lord was a human.
But it would take too long to explain it all…
Besides, I think I knew the reason that they came here…
One of the captured kobolds spoke to Ash.
“Ah, brother. I can smell the young one…from him.”
I opened the top button of my shirt.
And then the kobold baby’s head poked out.
The baby looked at Ash with a puzzled expression.
“Co-could it be… Is that…”
“It was trapped in a treasure chest that drifted here. You came here to find this little guy, didn’t you?”
I said. And then Ash and the captured kobold stared at each other.
They were crying.
“…The…the little one is alive!! The last child of the Tibris house is alive!!”
The kobolds all looked up at the sky and howled.
