This chapter was sooo looong, 5 pages… here’s the chapter meant for today… 3/3 done… I’m going to bed… *yawns*
And for monsters, since they’re created from the magic power in the earth
Magic Power = Health Points for them.
Activate Scout Scope!
Translation Power: 0/9001
The sloth Kuroi has fainted!

-The next day, at the Decayed Church
Milly and I had come back.
Of course, our goal was to hunt The King of Death.
Milly’s legs were trembling a little.
「Red」Magic level: 23/94
「Blue」Magic level: 32/98
「Green」Magic level: 19/92
「Sky」Magic level: 12/96
「Soul」 Magic level: 17/85
Magic Power: 985/985
In pure magic power she’s stronger than me, but both her physical and mental states are unstable.
It might not show on scout scope, but Milly is starting to show symptoms of fear and anxiety that might affect her magic consumption rate.
An unsettled heart interferes with the magic lines that naturally spread throughout one’s body, inhibiting one’s flow of magic.
It’s impossible for Milly to be the attacker as she is now.
Here’s the plan, I’ll be the front line, while you’re support.”
I slapped Milly’s back because she replied sheepishly.
“You’re awfully pale you know, that’s not how our great guildmaster should be right?”
For young people, it’s easy for their minds to fluctuate between good and bad mindsets.
At such a time, it’s my job to support her.
“Let’s see, I believe our guild name was… ‘The Pegasus’s White Wings’ right?”
Only silence followed.
Man, did I screw up?
I wonder if she didn’t understand my joke.
“Zeph, we’re the ‘Hunters of the Blue Sky’ so…”
Apparently she took it seriously.
She looked into my eyes.
Hey hey, don’t get angry at me.
Milly who was sitting beside me, hit my back.
She walked away while saying so, hey say that before you get up, I’m a man so I have to take the lead.
“Did you say something?”
Milly flew away with teleport while saying so.
I could feel myself grinning.
My joke might’ve not gone as I intended, but it’s not a bad result.
“I’ll go too…!”
After lightly slapping my cheeks with my hands, I started teleporting in the opposite direction from Milly.
Stage one, Search Operation.
There’s also the chance that the King of Death had already been defeated by someone, since we’re probably not the first people to ever come here.
By doing so we’ll have a fresh start.
Teleport, teleport, teleport….
Woah, it’s a hoard of zombies.
The hoard disappeared after I started casting White Ball.
There’s no King of Death though.
It’s only a matter of time.
I continued to look around while teleporting.
Teleport, teleport, teleport ….
(There it is!)
Milly’s voice resounded in my head.
Guild members that have a strong bond and are connected by the power of the circle crystal rings, are able to communicate with with each other through telepathy.
(Current position is in Dungeon Area ‘9’, in the middle of the cemetery!)
(Understood, I’m heading there now.)
I teleported to the location told me about as soon as I could.
“You’re so slow!”
In the center of a zombie hoard, wearing a crown and a red cloak, was the King of Death, calmly walking as if he was going through a park.
He was at a distance that we could barely see him from this location.
Our first worry though, isn’t about the distance.
Milly is still traumatized.
I can’t do anything about that now though.
Because of the magic used a little while ago and because of teleport, I started meditating.
As I concentrated my mind, my magic power was honed in an instant.
The torrent of magic power around me boasts the strength of a veteran.
With a sharp feeling on her skin, Milly was taking deep breaths to calm herself.
Kukuku, she should be proud.
It’s been awhile since the boss fight, but her sense of urgency isn’t too bad.
“If our preparations are all done, let’s go!”
I casted Time Square first, then I used Magic Amplifier twice during the time stop,
“Oh God of Red Magic, creator of the system that spreads knowledge and truth across the land, lend me your strength! Destroy my enemy with your spinning blades!”
My strongest Red system Great Magic ‘Red Zero’.
By consuming all my magic power, it’s a great magic of the ‘Red’ system that’s shot at maximum power.
Its power increases according to the maximum amount of magical power the user has, its consumption rate is terrible, but its the spell with the most power in one attack.
To erase the disadvantage of ‘increasing the consumption of magic’ that Magic Amplifier produces, the compatibility between it and ‘Red Zero’ need to be the best.
With the Magic Amplifier-double, the crimson blade that had been amplified fourfold (^4) was shot out of my hands.
Piercing the King of Death, it burned its body, making it groan out in pain.
It seems that the Great Magic of the Red system could be its weakness indeed.
Smashing the blade of fire, the King of Death charged over to assault me.
Milly grabbed my hand, and teleported away from the King of death a short distance away.
Disappearing from its field of view at the last second, the King of Death still pursued us as we dodged through teleport.
After I pulled it, Milly would continue distance us with teleport.
Meanwhile I noisily drank magic recovery potions taken from the bag, while meditating.
…I can feel my magic power recovering!
The recovery rate of a magic recovery potion seems to be about 100, this was verified before the battle with Scout Scope.
So I put the magic recovery drink into one large bottle, so that I could almost completely recover with one take.
I call it Magic recovery potion(large).
“Soon..! We’ve shaved away 15000!”
Milly seems to have used Scout Scope on the King of Death.
We tried experimenting, where ‘What happens if you use Scout Scope on a monster’, and its magic power was shown normally.
Their magic power decreases when we attack them, and they disappear when that value becomes zero.
“The King of Death’s Magic power is equal to 78000… so we need six more shots, Zeph!”
The King of Death has a self-recovery ability, but it isn’t recovered when a large numeric value decreases.
As long as we keep up this pressure and without letting it recover, we can do this!
We have the experience from our last boss battle.
So while leaving the movement to Milly, we escaped through teleport again, and if she ever got the chance, she would check the enemy’s condition through Scout Scope.
This is called “Escape Shot” used when fighting opponents with high attack power, it’s not a tactic used by mages often.
Its magic power efficiency isn’t very good, but you can even beat mighty enemies with it if you don’t miss.
“…it’s restored. Let’s take our distance and shoot again.”
Milly’s tone changed? It’s good that she’s back to normal.
Activating Time Square, casting Magic Amplifier twice, starting chant for Red Zero.
This is the second time I casted Red Zero.
The red blade extended from my hands and pierced the King of Death yet again.
Flames blew throughout its body, its arms fell, its cloak burnt into a thousand pieces, and yet without reducing its speed at all, it still chased after us.
Milly cowered looking into its red eyes, so I grabbed her shoulder, turned her towards me, and nodded.
Milly said so as if to remind herself, and brushed her cheek.
