As for me, I concentrated on sharing magic energy with them and blocking the thunder attacks with Shield.
Eventually, we could see that none of the Scissor Crabs were moving, and cries of joy erupted everywhere.
And so I approached Rienna and the others in order to commend them.
“All of you. You dealt with that so well. It was brilliant.”
They all looked at me and smiled.
“We’re not worthy of such praise, Lord Heal! Besides, without your power…”
Rienna started to say, and Baris and Kamyu nodded.
“Yes. That power…it was from you, wasn’t it? Without that help, the crabs would have likely covered our beaches.”
“Oh, yes. We really would not have been able to stop all of them without your help.”
Apparently, they had caught on to what I had been doing.
Well, I hadn’t necessarily meant it to be a secret…
“No, you succeeded because you all studied magic really hard. Also, those who don’t use magic also did really well.”
I praised Erevan and Ashton’s teams as well. And then we inspected the corpses of the Scissor Crabs.
“…Still, why are there so many of them?”
Everyone knew that Scissor Crabs came from the sea.
If I remembered correctly, they needed nutrition for laying eggs. And so they would come to the shore or to river banks in search of food.
However, this was such a large swarm of them, and so soon after the Leviathan too…
Was it really just a coincidence?
“Perhaps it was god that sent them to us? After all, what an amazing catch!! All of you! Let’s pull them up!”
Erevan started ordering the others to pull up the Scissor Crabs.
Well, I suppose it was a good thing that we had more food.
I had heard that Scissor Crab meat was rather delicious.
Furthermore, their hard shells and sharp pincers could be used as materials for creating weapons and tools.
“Aye. We should hurry. Let’s move them to the freezer before they go bad!”
And so we started to gather the Scissor Crabs.
