Chapter 42: The Two Worst Criminals│Read translated stories and daily updates at: Awebstories.com
“Haa…haa…How’s it going over there, Nadia?”
“Yes, everything is settled here as well.”
We descended to the 14th level and immediately fought off the oncoming hordes of Cerberus.
The strength of the demons that appear is extraordinary, as expected from the level just before the lowest level.
“Ivan… I think that Zadokiel, the first-level guardian, is not even close to the strength of this Cerberus alone…”
When I think about it, the balance of the guardians’ arrangement seems strange.
I felt this in my dream as well, but it appears that they are adapting to the growth of those who enter this labyrinth.
It’s as if you’re being tested.
“Well, now isn’t the time to think about it. Anyway, let’s get to the guardian’s room as soon as possible.”
Nadia and I make our way through the fourteenth level, kicking away demons that appear along the way.
“Fufu, seeing the skeleton dragon makes me happy…”
Nadia laughs as her summon smashes the skeleton dragon.
Hahaha… I was surprised by how much Nadia grew as she progressed through the labyrinth.
She has grown so much that she can now summon not only all six of the highest level magical beasts, but also three divine level magical beasts.
To be honest, her talent exceeded my expectations.
When I praised her ability.
[I’m stronger than I’ve ever been because of Ivan.]
I was so happy when she said that to me with a smile that I burst into tears and hugged her.
“? What’s the matter?”
“No, I was simply lost in thought.”
“Fufu, is that so?”
Nadia giggles and smiles as I scratch my head with a wry smile.
The atmosphere between her and me is very pleasant.
“Oh, aren’t there people over there?”
“…Yes, that’s them.”
I had a bad feeling about this…
I never wanted to meet these criminals.
Carlos, the “Briganti Bandits” leader.
The Astoria empire’s most heinous homicidal maniac.
Albert Grayman, The Butcher of the Full Moon
I quickly filled the passage with a large number of 【Mill Unit】.
“Let’s get out of here, Nadia!”
I grabbed her hand and took off as fast as I could.
Along the way, I set up traps like 【Landmine】and 【Claymore】, and when we reached the end of the passageway, I finally let out a breath.
“Haa… Haa…. Are those people Ivan was talking about?”
In my dreams, I met people I never wanted to meet.
First and foremost, Carlos is the leader of a gang of thieves well-known not only in the Astoria Empire but also in neighboring countries.
The banditry is so heinous that no one has survived in the towns and villages where they have attacked.
Furthermore, that man is the best magician in the Astoria Empire, and he has been testing his magic on the people he has attacked.
This comes as no surprise, because…
He is no longer human because he is an Elder Lich.
And the other man, Albert Grayman, has killed and eaten more human beings than any other man in Empire history.
There are three thousand of them.
That is exactly how it should be. This man has also lost his humanity.
“So… what are we going to do now?”
“Of course, continuing to run will only put us at a disadvantage. So…”
I raise my hands to the end of the corridor.
“Let’s end this here.”
With those words, I fired five 【Harpoon】shots.
I pointed them at the two criminals who appeared at the end of the passage.
“Oh! I’m not sure what this magic is, but it’s incredible!”
Carlos exclaims joyfully.
I suppose I should have expected such a reaction from a man obsessed with magic.
“Hmm… I wonder how that magic tastes…”
A man dressed in aristocratic attire… Grayman takes a step forward.
He enlarged his mouth to a huge size and took five 【Harpoon】 shots into his mouth at once.
Nadia was speechless when she saw this.
Sigh… As one would expect from a member of the most advanced demon race, the Advan.
Their enormous mouths can swallow anything.
So, what do we do now?
To tell you the truth, I’ve never defeated two people in my dreams at the same time.
So from here on out, I’m in uncharted territory.
But… It’s the same on the other side.
In any case, I’m already prepared.
“Nadia… Can you take care of the Grayman for me?”
“Of course! I’ll make sure that mouthed-demon knows what he’s getting himself into!”
That’s right. Nadia’s summoning art, which was not fully developed in my dream, has now fully blossomed.
I couldn’t defeat them if I were alone, but…
“Ivan — we must live to see our future.”
Nadia and I clasped our hands.
We started our own battle.
