Chapter 26: Valla-chan│Read translated stories and daily updates at: Awebstories.com
Ninya and the others were walking with Valla in the lead, and according to Valla’s danger prediction, they could locate the demon.
“We’ve got one up ahead!”
Valla says this while pointing her finger.
Indeed, a fire-salamander can be seen, albeit at a distance.
There appears to be no other fire salamanders nearby, and it appears to be alone.
“Hey, Neneli. Can you shoot from here?”
“I’m not sure I’ll be able to hit it from this distance.”
“You don’t have to hit it. I simply want you to lure the demon.”
Luring the demon. It entails provoking demons from afar and bringing them to advantageous terrain.
“I don’t mind, but you do have a plan, right?”
“No problem, just leave it to Valla-chan.”
Valla’s got a big grin on her face.
“Well, all right,”
Let’s follow Valla’s lead here.
Let’s see how she performs.
“Here we go, Ice-Sphere-Lanzafiero!”
She creates an ice spear and launches it at the fire-salamander.
It just barely reaches the fire-salamander, but as expected, it doesn’t hit it.
On the other hand, it looks like the fire-salamander has seen them and is staring at Neneli in particular.
“Look out! It’s coming this way!”
The fire salamander moves in this direction, just as Ninya said.
And it’s much faster than Neneli expected.
At this rate, it won’t be long!
“Valla! Are you certain about this?!”
“Fufufu, I told you to trust Valla-chan. And Neneli, get the second ice spear ready.”
In this case, there was no other option but to believe Valla.
Neneli casts a spell and prepares to fire the second shot at any moment.
The fire salamander snarls and leaps at Neneli.
It is surprisingly large up close.
It appears to be two meters long.
At that moment, Valla yells
And a jolt of electricity is delivered to the fire salamander.
The fire-salamander then collapsed to the ground and stopped moving.
“Now, Neneli, take care of the rest!”
It’s impossible to miss at this distance.
The Ice-Spear-Lanzafiero strikes and penetrates the body of the fire-salamander.
Fire salamanders are terrible at ice.
As a result, if it had been penetrated by ice, it would have died helplessly.
“Did you see that? Isn’t Valla-chan amazing?!
“It’s truly incredible.”
“By the way, what was that?”
Because astrologers are few and far between, information is limited.
So Neneli had no idea that astrologers could do things like stop demons from moving.
“Fufu, Most diseases are caused by the stars. You can cure diseases if you know the stars. That means it is also possible to deliberately make demons sick.”
Make them feel sick.
Neneli is impressed that such a thing is possible.
(Well, I’ll never say it out loud.)
“Valla-chan, that is truly incredible!”
“Yes, yes I am, and you can heap even more praise on Valla-chan!”
Neneli pulls Ninya’s hand toward her.
“What is it?”
“Don’t praise her any more than you have already, or she’ll get carried away.”
“Wait a minute, Valla-chan is not getting carried away!”
“Obviously, you’re getting carried away.”
Valla’s cheeks swelled.
“Look, Ninya Put the fire-salamander carcass in the item box.”
When the fire-salamander was alive, its body was enveloped in flames, but the flames have vanished now that it is dead.
Then you can easily grab it by hand.
“That’s really a convenient item, isn’t it?”
Valla mutters to herself as she observes the two-meter-tall fire-salamander effortlessly enter the item box.
People would normally dismember a carcass and take only the parts that could be sold for money.
But thanks to the item box, they don’t have to do that.
“Does the number of items that can fit in the item box have a limit?”
“That’s… I’m not sure.”
They never tried to see how big the item could fit in the item box.
“I’ve put a man-eating-ogre carcass in there before and it worked fine.”
“Isn’t a man-eating-ogre quite large? If it’s not a problem, the space should be as big as a house, right?”
Neneli laughs off Valla’s joke.
