Chapter 13: Complex Magic
his black eyes changed to a blood-like red.
his originally black hair also had a reddish tint, and I could feel sharpness from somewhere.
Above all, the magic overflowing from his entire body was different.
Even the magical power humans possess has its own colors.
Even among humans, siblings, parents, and children, there aren’t individuals who possess completely identical magical power.
The nature of magic reflects the characteristics of the soul that the person possesses.
The magic he emitted was exactly that.
This is the Demon King.
Something that was only expressed in words in the book now exists in reality.
I could feel the ominous and eerie atmosphere on my skin, and cold sweat dripped down my cheeks.
I was prepared for this.
He is someone I may eventually face.
I know it’s a terrifying existence.
Knowing that, this pressure. . .
“You’re an interesting one, smiling at my true nature.”
“. . .?”
It seems I was smiling.
Unconsciously, my face had a smile on it.
Is this joy?
Or. . .is it at least resistance to fear?
I clenched my fist.
“Well, what are you going to do now?”
“. . .I’ve already decided.”
I should have been prepared for this.
I motivated myself.
Once again, I put my hand on my chest to make sure.
My heart was beating fast and strong.
I feel fear.
I am also shaken. . .but I am not in despair.
Then, surely, it will be okay.
For what reason have I been training until today?
Everything is. . .
“To destroy you here.”
“. . .heh, fine. It’s a reward for noticing my true identity. I’ll play with you.”
Belfist. . .no, the magic of Demon King Satan swelled up.
The inside of the isolation barrier was filled with his magic, his magic took control of the place.
It happened in an instant.
The outer wall of the barrier I had deployed was covered in darkness.
“Kuh. . .”
“Don’t worry. I’ll leave the barrier as it is. It’s more convenient this way. . .I don’t know what you intended by being alone with me.”
The isolation barrier cut off all communication with the outside world.
No one could enter the barrier, and no one could even notice its existence.
This place had become a space different from reality.
No matter how much I rampaged or destroyed things inside, it would have no effect on reality.
However, it was different for living creatures inside the barrier.
If I died in here. . .of course, I would die in reality too.
“You wanted to cut off reinforcements from outside? To challenge me alone, knowing that I’m the Demon King. . .Quite foolish of you.”
“Whether it’s foolish or not. . .you’ll have to taste it and decide!”
My body stiffened with fear.
That’s why I took the initiative.
I deployed five magic circles behind me.
Fire, water, wind, thunder, earth.
The basic attributes of magic are the five major elements of magic.
I deployed all the highest-level magic formulas and fused them into one.
“Magic formula fusion?”
This was the ultimate strike that combines the magic of the five primary elements.
A pure white beam of light was fired from the magic circle.
It was a compressed mass of power that canceled and crushed all elements.
I couldn’t hold back.
The opponent was the world’s strongest, The Demon King. . .I couldn’t afford to hold back.
From the beginning, I encouraged my trembling body with all my might.
The blast hit Satan directly.
He didn’t try to avoid it.
He put his hand in his pocket and didn’t move, smiling recklessly.
Did he think he had room to spare?
Even if he was the Demon King Satan, he should have suffered considerable damage from that magic.
If he had been overconfident and underestimated me, it would be convenient.
If I could gain even a slight advantage with this. . .
“——I see. That was quite a good hit.”
“. . .It’s not funny.”
The dust and blast that had risen settled, and he appeared.
I immediately understood.
He was Unscathed. . .
He was standing in the same spot, without moving a step, without any damage.
I was both shocked and disappointed.
I had a vague feeling, but to receive that hit and not be affected at all. . .
“As expected, you’re a monster.”
“The same goes for you. That hit just now. . .it’s not a technique that any ordinary human can do. It takes considerable talent and training to achieve it.”
“Thank you for the compliment. Then I wish you had struggled a bit more.”
“I did struggle. I defended myself.”
I squinted my eyes.
If you look closely, there was something like a black mist swirling around him.
It wasn’t a residue from my attack.
That is. . .
“You have good eyes. That’s correct.”
When he lightly raised his right hand, black mist swirled around his arm.
Is the magic power overflowing from his body materializing?
Magic power is a power that cannot be seen or touched by the naked eye.
As a mage, I possess a unique sense that allows me to perceive the quantity, quality, and flow of an opponent’s magical power.
However, it’s not something I can clearly see.
I can only feel it.
But. . .I can clearly see it with my eyes.
A swirling vortex of jet-black magic floated around him.
“That’s ridiculous. The concentration of magic is so high that it can be seen with the naked eye.”
“Yet you’re not surprised.”
I’m not surprised.
Such descriptions were already said in the original work.
Demon King Satan can materialize magic itself and wield it as a weapon
He is the only one in the world who could do this.
I knew that, but I never thought that I would be easily blocked by a barrier of magic power alone.
He’s stronger than I imagined.
“It’s really interesting. Even though I blocked your best shot, you haven’t lost your fighting spirit. Those eyes of yours still intend to beat me.”
“. . .If I didn’t think that way, I wouldn’t have picked a fight with the Demon King in the first place.”
“Hahaha, that’s right. Then, show me.”
A cold and sharp killing intent emanated from Demon King Satan.
I pushed my trembling body forward with determination.
“Use all of your power.”
Demon King took a step forward.
This time, it seems to be my turn.
