“Beka. Follow me. We’re leaving now.”
There was only one town by the lookout hill.
The fact that they headed to the town first thing after exiting the miasma zone meant that they feared watchers or they wanted to steal supplies from the town. Or they wanted hostages.
In any case, they would soon realize how pointless it was, given that there was no one in that town.
And so they would head towards us soon enough.
“Hey, Golan. How many types of Golems are there?”
It was a typical muscle brain question from Beka.
“Well, there are Wood Golems, Iron Golems, and Stone Golems. Also Metal Golems and Chrome Golems.”
“Ohh. I’ve never seen them before. What are they like?”
“They are exclusively for short-range and they can’t use magic. They have high defense ability but are very slow to move. You shouldn’t have any problem.”
“Ahhh…I see. That’s no surprise.”
Beka wouldn’t understand if I said anything more complicated.
In fact, even if she seemed to understand, it would all fly straight out of her head the moment that the fighting began.
“Never mind the small details. Just punch down the enemy that’s in front of you. Destroy them. Stomp over their bodies until they stop moving. That’s all you have to remember.”
“Hehhe… Got it.”
We were close to the town now, but it seemed different from before.
No, it was completely different.
“Golan. What’s this? Why are there petals in the wind?”
“It’s the Cherry Ent special ability, ‘Cherry Blossom Blizzard.’ You’ll get lost if you go inside.”
There was a tornado of pedals that danced around the entire town.
This covered a very large area.
“This has no attack power, but it robs you of your vision. And your sense of direction is affected, which means you will get lost once inside.”
“Uh, what should we do?”
“I told you not to do anything…old man. They won’t let you go if you resist.”
“Hey, Golan. What are you going to do?”
“Wait a minute. I’m thinking.”
Even I would get lost if I entered their ‘Cherry Blossom Blizzard.’ And it would take a really long time to get out.
Besides, these kinds of psychological attacks weren’t as effective with Golems.
“Hey, Beka. What would you do if I asked you to go through the miasma zone and attack the enemy base?”
“It’s really hard to get through it, right? People get sick or even die.”
“Yes, that’s right.”
“I would say that I could totally do it! I think…if I didn’t say that, I would just hesitate.”
Yes, it would be very difficult to get through the miasma zone.
You needed to have a very strong will in order to do it.
“Alright, Beka. Let’s get through this blizzard.”
“Huh? Are you sure?”
“No. Not really. But I know our destination. It’s straight ahead. And like you said, you need to go through the miasma zone with the will to do it no matter what. It’s the same here.”
“That’s true. Alright, let’s go.”
“You take everything lightly, don’t you? Well, that’s probably for the best. You don’t know about this town. So follow me.”
“Got it. I’m counting on you, Golan.”
“Leave it to me.”
And with that, we stepped into the Cherry Blossom Blizzard.
