The Magic of “Analysis” Sees Through Everything – Chapter 172

“Huh, Cyphos-san?!”

“Oh, you guys are. . . who were you again?”

Cyphos, who had lightly jumped down from his arm, approached Luke and the others with an unconcerned face.

Whether it was due to the shock of being cut, the remaining arm had also retracted into the mountain.

“Luke, Luke Surberry. From the Kingdom of Arrogas.”

“Oh, that’s right. And lady was. . . Al. . . no, El. . .?”

“It’s Alma.”

“Right, right, the daughter of Bastille Margrave.”

“A, Anyway, thanks for your help.”

Luke bowed his head to Cyphos.

“Don’t worry about it. I just thought I’d catch it because an octopus had come up on land while I was going fishing. Thanks to that, I won’t have to worry about food for a while.”

Cyphos laughed heartily.

“An octopus. . .”

It was clear from the sword in his hand alone that Cyphos had come to help.

The Holy Sword Orkatz, a sword said to cut through even demons that normal weapons can’t touch, is also a symbol of Cyphos.

Seeing him cut off the arm of the divine beast Kraken in one stroke, it seems that the rumor is true, if not understated.

“Thank you anyway, Cyphos-san. It would have been dangerous if you hadn’t come.”

Luke thanked him again.

“It’s too early to thank me. It seems that guy has his eye on us.”

Cyphos looked up at the mountain.

Beyond the trees, you could see the reddish-black hill-like body of the Kraken.

And around it, eight giant arms were swaying.

It was an unreal sight, as if the mountain had transformed into a meat flower.

“So that’s the divine beast Kraken. . . It’s my first time seeing the real thing too.”

Cyphos seemed to be enjoying himself even in front of the divine beast.

“But with that size, how do we attack. . .”

As they were pondering in front of the towering body of the Kraken, they heard footsteps.

“Hey, hey! What’s going on? What’s that big thing?!”

“Gaston?”

“Isn’t that Luke-san over there! What happened?”

“No, what about your face?”

Luke was surprised when he saw Gaston’s face.

Gaston was covered in bruises, and his face was so swollen that he couldn’t tell who he was at first glance.

“I can’t believe Prince Gale would go this far. . .”

“No, that person is amazing.”

While casting healing magic, Luke couldn’t help but raise his voice in indignation, while Gaston looked happy.

“I’ve never seen anyone so strong. No, it’s not just strength, it’s the strength of will, the attitude, that’s what makes a king.”

“I, Is that so. . .”

“Yeah, I realized it when I actually fought him. The person I should aim for is that person! There’s no one else I’d call my master!”

“Who’s your master.”

Then Gale quietly arrived.

“I’m not interested in taking on a disciple, don’t claim it arbitrarily.”

“Hehe, I’m not the type to give up just because you said that. I fell for you as a man, I’ll follow you to the ends of hell.”

“Really. . . what a troublesome guy.”

Gale sighed lightly and noticed Cyphos’s presence.

“Why is master here?”

“Huh, I thought my unworthy disciple was in trouble, so I came to check on him.”

“I’d like to say that’s not true, but it seems I can’t just brush it off as a joke with him around.”

Gale, who had laughed off Cyphos’s words, looked up at Kraken.

“That is. . .”

“It’s the divine beast Kraken, isn’t it? You can tell by looking at it.”

Gale, looking up at Kraken, tensed up.

He probably remembered the fight with Behemoth.

Luke felt the same way.

But that doesn’t mean they can just stand by and do nothing.

“The island is in danger as it is. I intend to stop it no matter what. Can you help me?”

“. . .Stop it? Do you understand what you’re saying?”

Gale grabbed Luke’s collar and glared at him.

“It’s different from last time. There’s no army to help you, no temple to seal the divine beast, and yet you’re going to do it!”

Luke nodded quietly yet firmly to Gale’s accusatory words.

“Of course. If we don’t stop it now, Kraken will fully awaken. If that happens, there’s nothing we can do.”

“. . .Hmph, I knew you’d say that without thinking ahead.”

Gale, who had been glaring at him for a while, finally let go of his hand as if to push him away.

“If you’re scared, you don’t have to follow. You probably have nothing but bad memories of the divine beast, right?”

Cyphos, with a nonchalant tone, readied his sword.

“But to be able to subdue a divine beast at this age. It’s worth living a long life.”

“Who said I was scared!”

Gale roared.

“Tsk, you said you were retired, but you’re still a greasy old man.”

Gale clicked his tongue in exasperation and turned back to Luke, pointing his finger at him.

“Luke, I’ll join in the divine beast extermination. But I’m not helping you, you’re helping me. Don’t get it twisted.”

“Understood. I look forward to working with you.”

Luke smiled and bowed his head.
