Marie faces off against the Witch of Jealousy Martha.

All attacks by magical arrows are overwritten with spells and canceled.

“Die! Hellfire Sphere!”

『! Disrupting the incantation of a high-level spell?!』

While Ose is astonished, Martha’s high-level spell directly hits Marie.

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!

『Such power despite disrupting the incantation. . . . . . Witches are truly incredible.』

“Is something different when you disrupt the incantation?”

『Yes, normally both power and range are supposed to decrease when you skip the incantation. But Martha’s magic didn’t lose any of its power.』

But what’s truly terrifying is that even after taking a hit from a high-level spell. . . . . .

Marie doesn’t even have a singe mark on her clothes.

『Did she set up a barrier?』

“That’s why there was no need to use it. That puny attack doesn’t mean a thing.”

『Then why are you unharmed?』

“That is. . . . . .”

Martha launches the high-level spell, Hellfire Sphere, once again.

Marie shapes her index finger like a gun and fires.

“【Stone Bullet】.”

A small stone materializes at the tip of Marie’s index finger.

It is then launched forward with tremendous speed.

The small Stone Bullet. . . . . .

However, it pierces through the great flame.

“What’s happening?! My magic disappeared!”

『Probably because she shot through the core of the spell.』

“The core of the magic?!”

『Yes. As the Witch-sama said, magic works by creating a small core and surrounding it with the spell to produce natural phenomena.』

In other words, if the core is destroyed, the spell that was built around it also unravels.

Martha wears an expression of dread.

“How is this possible?! I concealed the magical core with a hiding spell! And you still precisely hit it! Impossible!”

“But it is possible, isn’t it?”

“Grrrr! You’re so irritating!”

Martha creates a hole in another space and thrusts her hand into it.

What she pulls out is a cloth bag.

Martha throws it and shoots it with a Stone Bullet.

The bag bursts open, and its contents spill out.

“What’s that?”

“That is. . . . . . sugar!”

Riara’s question is answered by Kaito.

He sniffs and nods with conviction.

“No doubt about it! That’s powdered sugar!”

“But. . . . . . what would you use powdered sugar for?”

Neither Riara nor Kaito can gauge Martha’s intention.

In the meantime, Martha activates her magic.

“Metamorphosis!”

Suddenly, something massive appears in the sky.

『That’s. . . . . . a TROLL!!!』

Trolls. They’re magical creatures also known as giants.

And they start falling from the sky in great numbers.

“Trolls?! How did they suddenly appear?”

『! Got it! That Martha. . . . . . she transformed the sugar into creatures. . . . . . into giants, using Metamorphosis!』

Martha’s unique magic, Metamorphosis of All Things.

A magic that freely changes forms from living to non-living and vice versa.

However, it comes with the restriction that it only applies to sweets.

In other words, it can only transform living things into sweets, and sweets into living things.

But. . . . . .

『Martha expanded her definition of “sweets” to include sugar, meaning that she turned powdered sugar into a living being, a troll.』

“So. . . . . . you’re saying she turned that powdered sugar into a troll?!”

Each grain of powdered sugar has become a troll.

A tremendous number of giants rain down and attack Marie.

A massive presence descends from the sky.

Even if she dodges them, she’s surrounded by giants and in a desperate situation. . . . . .

“Chaos.”

With a snap of her fingers, Marie makes all the trolls disappear.

“What the. . . . . .?! They disappeared?!”

Martha involuntarily screams.

“What’s going on?!”

“You don’t even know that?”

“Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!”

Watching all this from a distance are Ose and his group.

Riara asks Ose.

“What just happened? Did she just erase the trolls in an instant?”

『No… it’s different. Witch-sama lifted the spell.』

『Spell removal?』

『Yes, Witch-sama had previously developed magic that can nullify Metamorphosis.』

Marie had once reversed the effects of Metamorphosis of All Things on cookie soldiers.

『She simply used that magic. Metamorphosis of All Things is threatening, but it only changes living things into sweets. As long as she can use that nullifying magic, attacks using Transformation of All Things won’t work on Witch-sama.』

“So, you mean. . . . . .?”

『Whether it’s regular magic or unique magic, Witch-sama is more skilled than Martha. . . . . . overwhelmingly superior, to be precise.』
