Chapter 39: Valla-Chan Is in Big Trouble│Read translated stories and daily updates at: Awebstories.com
“Valla-chan thinks she’s in trouble…”
Valla frowns as she says this.
The Earth Dragon’s second form stands before her.
Valla quickly unleashes a skill as the Earth-Dragon approaches.
The entire body of the Earth-dragon is struck with electricity.
For a moment, the Earth-Dragon stops moving, but it immediately starts moving again.
The effect is weak.
The Earth-Dragon’s attack slows slightly but does not stop.
Boom! The tail of the Earth-Dragon swings.
It lands a direct hit on Valla’s stomach.
Valla’s body was thrown into the air and slammed into a wall.
She coughs up blood, but the Sleep-Dormil’s power appears to have weakened the attack because she is still conscious.
“This is not good…”
First and foremost, astrologers specialize in recovery and support and are not trained to fight alone.
Without Nell, Valla will be unable to face this challenge alone.
The Earth-Dragon snarls and leaps at her.
It made the Earth-Dragon’s body heavy.
The Earth Dragon, who was about to pounce on Valla, falls to the ground with a thud.
“It’s surprisingly efficient…”
Paralysis and Sleep-Dormil could only slow the movement slightly, but Gravity-Manipulation could.
The Earth-Dragon keeps crawling on the ground.
She doesn’t have enough magic to release another Grundy-Cross.
She won’t even have a minute to chant.
chanting for fifteen seconds.
A small meteorite strikes the Earth-Dragon from above.
It’s not as large as the Grundy Cross, but it should be effective.
Before her eyes, the Earth-Dragon was unharmed.
Valla’s strength abruptly left her body.
She found herself lying on the ground.
She tries to get up, but her strength fails her.
(I don’t have any more magic…)
She used far too much skill.
(There is no way for me to resist now.)
Her tears are streaming down her cheeks.
(Am I going to die here?)
If she died at the bottom of the sinkhole, her body would not only be lost, but it would also be declared missing.
Then her death would not be remembered by anyone.
It would be a far cry from a heroic death.
(But it might suit me if I can’t even protect Nell.)
The Earth-Dragon was staring at her, as if mocking her from on high for having lost the ability to resist.
(If you’re going to kill me, do it quickly…)
She wished that this period of despondency would end soon.
The Earth-Dragon opens its mouth.
At that moment…
It was pierced with a dagger.
The Earth-Dragon coughs up blood and turns to face where the dagger came from.
“Get the hell away from her!”
Nell is standing there.
She has lost her left arm and is bloodied.
One of her eyes is crushed, and she cannot even walk properly.
Nonetheless, Nell was attempting to maintain her position.
Valla said these words unconsciously.
“Why are you going to such lengths to protect me?!”
In the first place, Valla had fallen into the hole with Nell to save her.
Nell had planned to die from the start, so she had no reason to defend Valla, and now Nell is standing up to defend Valla.
“Ninya will be upset if you die. That is not what I want.”
(What is she on about?) Valla wondered.
She fights for Ninya, not herself.
“I don’t get it…”
Nell dragged one of her legs forward.
She has a dagger in one hand.
As she speaks, blood pours from her mouth.
Nonetheless, Nell ran with grace.
(I don’t need my own life. But you’re going to hell with me.)
Nell plunges the dagger into the Earth-Dragon’s mouth and pulls it out with blood on the dagger.
Almost immediately, she is flung away by the dragon’s tail.
Her body collides with the wall, nearly knocking her out.
But she manages to get up using only her willpower.
She advances one step.
The Earth-Dragon does not miss that moment.
When she came to, her body was flying in the air again.
The impact of her body hitting the ground caused her to cough up more blood.
Her body had already reached its breaking point.
Even so, she was able to get up when she thought she needed to do something.
However, the moment she attempted to stand, she lost all strength in her body.
Her body didn’t move at all, no matter how much she thought she should.
(I still have something to do. Why isn’t my body moving?)
“Move… Move… Move… Move…”
That’s what she keeps repeating to herself.
But her body refuses to move.
“Nell, that’s enough…!”
Before she knew it, Valla was nearby.
No, Valla could have been right where she had been knocked away.
“Thank you, Nell.”
Valla gently hugged her.
(What is she thankful for? I haven’t done anything yet.)
“Valla, run away.”
Nell noticed the Earth-Dragon approaching them.
They will both die if she does not act.
“No, I’m not running away.”
For some reason, Valla did not try to run away.
Instead, she gripped Nell even more tightly.
“What are you doing?”
(If I had the power, I would move Valla right now. I should have been the only one to suffer. Why won’t Valla just flee? God. If you’re here, at least save her!)
All Nell could do was pray.
Then she noticed a light.
A frighteningly bright light.
She didn’t know what it was.
A silver-haired girl stood in what should have been an empty space.
