50. Until the Day we Meet Again, Someday
“I wonder if you can still get any stronger?”
“Well, of course.”
Ibris extended his hands towards the heavens.
A magic circle that enveloped the sky was deployed and magic bullets fell like rain.
From the army that was exposed to the rain of bullets, screams and roars could be heard.
“For you to be capable of such a thing…”
“Thanks to the time I’ve gained through the conversation, I’ve finally become accustomed to this body. Now, I can exert about 70% of my true strength despite my human form.”
He snapped his fingers.
At that moment, a magic circle was formed on the ground around Ibris.
The bodies of Grave and the others shone in a brilliant, seven, colors of light.
“I’ve bestowed upon you an enhancement and regeneration. For a while, you’ll be as strong as a dragon.”
“Wow… my body feels light.”
“I’ve never felt anything like this before!”
Everyone could feel the change in their bodies.
Ibris declared to them.
“O dauntless heroes who do not know fear! It’s impossible for the souls I’ve given my enhancement upon to die!”
“Hahaha, how convenient!”
Swords were unsheathed. Spears were thrusted. Bowstrings were drawn.
The courageous warriors of the Sword of the Blue Sky confronted the horde.
“Don’t yield! Defeat the Demon King, and reclaim our realm!”
At the same time, the large horde advanced.
Ibris and Grave took the lead and cut into the horde.
“I won’t lose to you!”
Flames dwelled within Grave’s sword.
He gave a powerful kick off the ground and leaped towards the approaching army.
“The Sword of Fire!”
The flame proceeded to spread and burn the entire surface.
It rapidly slipped past the enemy and laid everything in its path to waste.
“My body feels light. I feel like I can do anything, now…”
“That’s right! Now, it’s my turn to show you something amazing!”
Ibris’ jet-black sword was a magic sword newly forged by Liliana.
A lot of rare materials were used to give it a high durability and sharpness.
The important effect that was imbued to the sword was—
“—sleep for a while.”
It happened in a flash. It was invisible to the eyes.
Before Grave noticed it, Ibris was no longer in front of him. It also didn’t feel like he had slashed his sword at all.
Ibris then spoke to those who had collapsed.
“This magic sword slashes only what I choose. I’ve slashed their consciousness, they won’t wake up for the time being.”
Ibris was able to cut only what he wanted and nothing else.
“I usually overdo things. With this sword, that can be avoided.”
Ibris gave an invincible laugh and stared at his enemies.
The devils were pushed back.
“You should be honored—for you’ve experienced my new blade first hand!”
The battle intensified.
The rain of cannonballs didn’t stop, and the fierce warriors scrambled on the battlefield.
In terms of numbers, there was an overwhelming superiority and inferiority.
If everyone were to be asked about the situation, it was clear which side would win.
However, if there was something that could change that expectation significantly…
“N, no way…”
Then it was the Demon King himself.
“Didn’t you all claim that I don’t stand a chance? Well, if there’s someone who can give me a difficult time, then it’s only the Hero.”
Beside Ibris, Grave stood tall.
“The Hero, who happens to stand beside me. Not only did you turn against me, but also against the one capable of defeating me.”
“As I’ve said many times, already, I’m not the hero…”
“What are you saying? Shouldn’t the person who can fight side by side with me be called a hero?”
“I see. Well, there’s no changing your mind at this point, so…”
The two faced each other and laughed.
“Well, you’re the only one left.”
Most of the other generals, were, of course, unconscious.
Only one general was left. Once he was defeated, the battle would be over.
“P, please wait, Demon King!”
“As if I’d wait for the likes of you. But, since I’m in a festive mood, I won’t kill you.”
“I, is that true?”
“Yeah, you’ll be responsible for sending the fallen ones back to the Demon Realm. Don’t forget to fix the broken terrain, too. This very night.”
“—Well, from my point of view, it seems like I’ve made an unreasonable demand of my subordinates.”
“I see. Well, even at night, they’re doing their best.”
“Yes, it’s surprising.”
The outskirts of the city had returned to its state from before the battle took place.
“I never thought that it’ll really be restored.”
“Fuhahaha, aren’t my men ambitious and excellent?”
It seemed that all of his generals had sent the fallen subordinates home.
Their way of doing things were really unconventional.
However, the fact that everyone had gotten used to it might be proof that they had become familiar with Ibris.
“Then, time for me to go.”
“Are you sure you want to go back?”
“Yes, I’m worried about Jaeger. I don’t want the same thing to happen again.”
“Well, that’s understandable.”
“What? Are you lonely?”
“That’s not true, don’t make fun of me!”
Grave’s cheeks were a little red. Despite what he said, I was sure he was lonely.
The same went for me and everyone else.
“Don’t worry, it isn’t a farewell. I’m still not satisfied! I haven’t achieved my purpose!”
“That might be impossible to attain even in a lifetime…”
“I wonder about that. Do your best to endure the loneliness until my return. Liliana, thank you for forging this sword for me.”
“You’re welcome. Please take good care of yourself?”
The sword I had forged was carried on Ibris’ waist.
“Hmm? What is it, Anna?”
Turning around, there was a figure of Anna, whom was out of breath.
While still out of breath, she showed the sack she had in her hand.
“It’s a lunch box.”
“Did you prepare it for me?”
“Yes, uhm, Ibris… by the time of your return, I will be able to cook more delicious food! So, please look forward to it?”
“Yes, I will look forward to it.”
Thus, the Demon King, Ibris, left the city.
He had blown in like a storm, leaving a mark in our hearts.
Until the day we could meet again, someday—
***T/N: Lmao, the battle of the century is over not even 1/4 into the chapter. Ibris, such a mad lad.
