We continued our operation to subjugate goblins.
For a little while, it was a repetition of 3~5 monsters……
「Sorry, it’s a little too many.」
There are 10 goblins that Aya had lured in. Although it’s a little too many, I think this much is fine somehow?
「Elena, Aya, take care of them you two.」
Elena invoked【Cloudburst】and Aya pushed back the goblins who tried to get away. There are too many goblins who are trying to get away from the【Cloudburst】and they can’t be suppressed by Aya alone.
Finally, there’s a monster which Aya didn’t manage to handle, attacked Elena.
I’d like to run and help but I bear with it and continue to watch. While Elena sends down rain using Cloudburst with【Water rod】in her left hand, she send the rushing goblin flying with【Magic rod】in her right hand. The goblin flew to where the Cloudburst is heavily raining. Even if Elena didn’t do such a thing, the goblin ceased to breathe when it was hit.
Even as the Cloudburst started to stop raining, there are still several goblins who are still breathing. Elena started to send down snow. It’s a magic combo of snow and cloudburst.
When the snow stopped falling, the goblins were buried under the snow and could no longer move. They became a huge mound of snow.
「I did it!」
「Again, even if there are 10 of them, it is an easy victory.」
While Elena eat Japanese sweets to recover her lost MP, we are waiting for the next batch of goblins and then 30『Caution』mark appeared on the map.
I moved to Aya’s side using【Teleportation】.
「Aya, no matter how you look at it, there’s too many.」
「Sorry oniichan. It seems that the goblins started to become alert.」
「Such a thing?」
Aya and I started to make strategy while escaping from the goblins.
「Aya, take these guys and run away for a while. I will『cut off』these guys little by little and take them to where Elena is.」
I hide behind a tree using【Teleportation】and set up a barrier in front of the the seven monsters at the rear of the group of goblins that’s chasing Aya. The 7 goblins crashed against the barrier that suddenly appeared and were cut off from the leading group. I threw a pebble to those fellows silently. When they noticed me, I ran back to where Elena is with those fellows in tow.
I suddenly halted my steps, turned around and took a fighting stance. The goblins and I glared each other. As I stepped back, a Cloudburst struck the goblins. The rain quickly changed into snow, not even one monster was left out, all of them were covered in ice.
「I’ll bring the next one.」
After giving Japanese sweets to Elena, I went to get the next batch of goblins. When the following 7 were defeated in the same way, Aya returned with the remaining 16 monsters in tow to where Elena is. This number will be the deciding factor if we should proceed.
While the 16 goblins confronted Aya, the Cloudburst struck the goblins. The cloudburst quickly turned into snow, even the weather turned into hailstorm. The goblins were struck by the hailstorm and were deprived of physical strength. They were easily wiped out.
When I checked Elena’s status, her level rose as well as the level of her water magic and ice magic.
「We were able to manage somehow. I feel that we can proceed with large numbers now.」
The 3 of us coordinated with each other well and the goblins in the village were reduced to about half.
「Sorry, something huge is in the mix.」
During the umpteenth time, in the 10 goblins that chasing after Aya, there’s a huge goblin with a great sword mixed in. Isn’t that the hobgoblin!?
I cast slow on the hobgoblin while Aya is dodging its attacks and attacking it. Elena brought down a hailstorm and killed the rest of the goblin instantaneously. With Elena’s level up, instead of rain, she can bring down hailstorm immediately.
「Well, only the hobgoblin is left.」
Elena created a water ball and launched it towards the hobgoblin. I also coordinated my attack with it.
The power of water ball is completely……
Since Elena has been using only Cloudburst and Snow, she wasn’t accustomed to single target attack…..
Unfortunately, the water ball attack caused it to notice Elena. The hobgoblin turned around towards Elena and swung his great sword.
I set up a barrier towards Elena at once but the hobgoblin’s attack broke through the barrier and attacked Elena!
With a dull sound, the hobgoblin’s sword was……
It was blocked by Elena with magic rod.
Its momentum was neutralized by the barrier, with Elena’s level up, she managed to defend somehow.
With a shout, Elena deflected the hobgoblin’s sword using the【Magic rod】and strike its defenseless body.
As if it was carefully aimed at, Elena’s attack landed on the hobgoblin’s lower head. The hobgoblin was unable to endure the blow and fell to its knees while holding his family jewels.
The hobgoblin leaned forward and fell down, producing a loud sound.
*Haa haa* Elena was panting for breath, she turned around here and broke into a smile.
