The Rune Magician Who Lost Everything to Her Older Sister, Becomes Doted On by the Genius Prince – Chapter 38


Chapter 38: Sibling conflicts

Kaijin turns his gaze towards the surroundings.

He appears defenseless, but remains vigilant against possible threats and doesn’t expose any openings.

“So, are you the only one here? Looks like the others have all gone on the attack.”

“And what about you? Are you alone?”

“Yeah, that’s right. I can take on anyone by myself!”

“You’re too overconfident.”

“You’ll see once we fight!”

Kaijin draws his large sword from his back.

He immediately jumps towards the Knight Commander, not the tower, and strikes.

The Knight Commander draws his sword from his waist and holds up a shield with his left hand.

As the two start their fight, the battle also begins in the Alectos faction.

◇◇◇

The assignment is as His Highness expected.

His Highness Rejhon and Norman-sama lead the way, with Onee-sama holding a staff in the rear.

Although Onee-sama is an excellent magician, she is not skilled in combat.

The staff she holds is a magical device that expands the range of auxiliary effects.

“Lord Norman, I leave the strategy to you as planned.”

“Leave it to me.”

The first one to move was Norman-sama.

He had already activated the spell and disappeared before me and His Highness.

He activated the transferral magic.

But the target was not to get closer to the tower, but to reach the one who was protecting the tower.

“Why did you appear in front of me?”

“Because you’re the most troublesome one. Behave yourself.”

Norman-sama’s target was Zion-kun.

He must have calculated to neutralize him before he drew the Holy Sword.

Zion-kun before drawing the Holy Sword was timid and had below-average physical ability.

As a court magician, Norman-sama was more than enough to defeat him.

However, if the Holy Sword is drawn——

“…Looks like I’m a step too late.”

He is the strongest hero.

“Ice Curtain.”

Norman-sama, who failed in his surprise attack, immediately changed his strategy and created an ice wall to surround himself and Zion-kun.

He tried to divide us.

Zion-kun, having realized his intention, advances to neutralize Norman-sama.

However, that was also anticipated.

The ground around Norman-sama was filled with landmine spells.

The moment he took a step forward, the ground lit up and exploded.

“Zion-kun!”

“No need to worry. That guy who pulled out the Holy Sword can’t be beaten by anyone.”

In response to His Highness’s words, Zion-kun emerges from the smoke unscathed.

Norman-sama also shows slight panic in the face of Zion-kun, who can withstand landmines.

To me, who sighed in relief, His Highness says,

“Stay focused. They’re coming this way too.”

“Yes.”

“That’s right. It’s better to concentrate.”

Rejhon-sama, who is approaching in front of my eyes, draws his sword.

And it’s obvious.

That’s not just any sword; it’s a magical tool… no, it seems to be a magic sword.

I’ve heard from Alectos-sama about Rejhon-sama’s abilities.

Not only is he strong as a swordsman, but he’s also a top-notch magician.

He may not stand out, but he is by no means weak.

“Flare up, Salamander.”

He seems to be wielding a flaming magic sword.

Overwhelming firepower ignites from the tip of the sword.

It seems like it could burn down the forest, but it’s being properly controlled.

None of the trees in the forest are catching fire.

“I’ll stop my brother. Meiana, you take care of the tower defense and Leticia Pheles.”

“Yes.”

With that, His Highness activates his magic.

He restrains the fire with ice magic and catches His Highness Rejhon’s attention.

“Such a weak attack. Come at me with more force.”

“I understand.”

His Highness Rejhon swings his magical sword and approaches His Highness Alectos.

However, His Highness Alectos won’t allow it.

He creates an intense icy wind with a combination of ice and wind magic, slowing down His Highness Rejhon’s movements.

Without hesitation, he unleashes the ice magic he started with.

His Highness Rejhon can’t dodge it and defends himself with his sword’s flames.

“Tsk.”

“You can’t get to me, brother.”

His Highness Rejhon is better at swordsmanship.

However, Alectos is overwhelmingly stronger as a magician.

Overall, Alectos is the superior one.

His Highness who always stood at the front lines with the knights, and the prince who only polished his skills through training.

The difference in experience points was clear.

“Don’t underestimate me, Alec.”

His Highness Rejhon shows his frustration and has no intention of retreating.

The flame of the magic sword increases in firepower and spreads so much that it covers the sky.

“Descend, Rain of fire!”

Countless fireballs rain down.

On the spur of the moment, His Highness deploys a magical barrier, but some of the fireballs reach the tower before it can be completed.

“Meiana!”

“Yes!”

I am here for moments like this.

I have already placed several Rune Stones around the tower.

Water is the enemy of fire.

“【ᛚ(Laguz)!】.”

There is no water in the vicinity.

Therefore, His Highness uses a chunk of ice made by magic instead.

The ice changes into water due to the activation of the Rune, and a thin film is deployed into the sky.

The rain of fireballs is blocked by the wall of water.

“Well, you did it.”

“Brother.”

“――!”

Taking advantage of a momentary opening, His Highness generates a thorny whip from the ground and restrains His Highness Rejhon’s feet.

“Tch, what is this!”

“You can’t afford to look away, brother.”

While the two princes engage in a fierce battle, I turn my gaze to the opponent I should face.

“Onee-sama…”

According to His Highness, His Highness Rejhon is a top-class magician but his magical power is unreliable.

And yet, he is able to use a magic sword with so much force.

The reason is probably because of Onee-sama supporting him from the rear with the expanded effect range of her staff.

That’s why I have to stop Onee-sama.

“【ᛊ(Sowel)】!”

The rune of the sun.

It converges light, and fires a pure white shot at Onee-sama.

I’m aiming for her feet, if she just steps back and gets away, it’ll be fine.

If she gets out of the effect range…

“Reflection.”

But it’s not easy.

The light is reflected by the light.

The reflected shot of light knocks down a giant tree.

“…It’s your fault.”

“Onee-sama?”

It’s a distance where I can barely hear her voice.

She muttered softly.

While glaring at me fiercely.
