Red magi flowed out of the ground like lava.

[There is nothing you can do to avoid it!]

“I know!”

In order not to touch the magi, Venna had to perform a flip in the air.

Even she surprised herself with that.

[Flying is one of the best talents that I have seen in Valkyries.]

She had doubts whether it was because of the new wings, and it was answered right away.

Venna was delighted with the praise, but she wasn’t in a mood to enjoy them.

“You are quick!”

Leueta followed her closely on waves of magi as if surfing.

Meanwhile, he kept creating magi spheres and aiming them at Venna.

Not from one direction, but several.

It was hard to believe that one demon could have such control.

[He isn’t a noble for nothing! If you don’t come to your senses right now, you will die!]

Venna flew high.

She thought that if she could widen the distance then he wouldn’t be able to chase her.

As if to show that it was an illusion, the magi scattered throughout the forest soared high enough to reach the sky.

In an instant, the demon rose higher than Venna, and laughed.

“There is no place you can escape to.”

Magi wrapped around Venna in a circle. It expanded, descending like a veil, and soon turned into a bright red wall.

[This is bad!]

Philion’s voice said.

[So when is your master even going to join the battle?!]

“I don’t know tha…”

[Couldn’t he have just escaped?]

“No! he is not that kind of a person.”

[Are you sure?]

“Yes.”

Philion remembered the little boy that Venna trusted.

The emerald hair and haggard look, a not-so normal kid.

And was he great enough for this girl to put her life on the line? He wasn’t sure.

[Let’s continue this talk later.]

“Huh?”

[Focus on surviving for now.]

Venna looked at Leueta nervously.

Contrary to the fact that he could kill the girl, the demon kept smiling.

An unpleasant smile.

Leueta opened his mouth.

“Should we start with the wings?”

[Avoid!]

Shhh!

Venna felt her body lose balance.

She looked to the left to find her yellow wing cut in half.

And a bright red arm which shouldn’t be there was below. A fistful of sharp blades around it pierced her chest.

“Kuak!”

[Venna!]

Blood rushed out of her chest, bones shattered inside.

“Kuhehehe!”

Magi fell on Venna.

The hammer with golden light moved on its own.

“The kid there was the same. You are fun too.”

Leueta grabbed the flying hammer.

Philion absorbed the power of Venna.

And the hammer’s blue jewel shone once again.

“Another explosion?”

Leueta scorned.

A large explosion.

However, Leueta already knew what to do. The red magi swallowed the explosion.

Magi ran through his skin and wrapped it before the hammer exploded.

[Kuahhh!]

The magi corroded Philion.

It’s ego was on the verge of collapsing.

“N-No!”

Venna who was barely conscious was screaming and extended her hand.

“Uhhhh!”

The power ahead is hers!

She tried to pull the hammer back with those thoughts.

Leueta snorted and set the hammer down. The girl was going to die, so there was no need to fight for it.

Venna fell to the ground with Philion in her arms.

“This is boring.”

The magi’s wall trembled and liquid poured down.

If the waves of magi kept moving, then it would make sure to absorb all her power and then the power would soon become Leueta’s.

Now, it was time to find the human kid.

‘That soul was definitely more delicious.’

He licked his lips at the thought.

Since he covered the entire forest in magi, the kid would have to come out at some time.

At that moment, a golden light pierced through the waves of magi.

“It isn’t interesting anymore.”

Leueta didn’t smile.

Numerous blades from his right arm curved in one direction. As the fist was clenched, the blades began to rotate in a clockwise direction.

Bright red magi swirled around it.

Bang!

The waves of magi covered the ground and a huge hole formed.

There, Venna who was covered in blood and gasping for hair appeared.

Her right fist extended.

The swirling storm of magi fell to tear her apart.

[You can’t stop it.]

With her abilities, she couldn’t do anything now.

She couldn’t stop it.

She was going to face a terrible death where her body would be shredded.

But Venna smiled.

“… it is fine.”

Philion didn’t ask what was fine.

With those words, Venna’s consciousness was cut off. But her body didn’t hit the ground.

Because someone held her.

“You make me worried.”

Jamie looked at her and smiled.

Even while losing consciousness, she didn’t let go of the hammer.

Jamie opened his mouth as he watched the magi storm fall.

“It is time for you to come.”

-Because of your late choice, my forest has been ruined.

“I am sorry, but I wouldn’t do this any other way.”

-All excuses.

“Think whatever you like. But run like a crazed beast.”

-Don’t tell me this and that!

The ground shook.

Jamie shouted as he saw the Magi storm approaching.

“Shut up and come up will you!”

The ground cracked.

Huge boulders squeezed out from the cracks flew up.

It was as if something fell on the ground.

The overwhelming destruction made Jamie smile.

From there, a creature of terrifying size came up.

The giant beast covered in black fur swung its paws without even looking at anything.

And the magi storm which Leueta fired disappeared.

“… what is that now?”

The demon frowned at the new enemy.

Just the size itself reminded him of a giant beast in the Devildom.

“Keep your promise.”

The giant beast of over 50 meters tall, Theberon, warned Jamie.

Not being bothered Jamie answered.

“If you want to get back what you lost, do your best.”

“Huh!”

Theberon jumped towards Leueta as if it didn’t want to hear anything more.

Kwang!

The ground kept rising up and down.

’How can I deal with someone with a body like that?!

A body which weighed several hundred pounds.

And because of its size, the distance kept getting shortened in instants.

“Disgusting freaking demon! This isn’t a land for you to mess with!”

“I don’t like furry beasts!”

This time, Leueta was nervous.

It wasn’t like he would lose, but this beast was a monster which couldn’t be compared to the kids he played with!

As magi wrapped around him, a blood red armor formed.

Raising his corrosion to the max, he swung the blade upright towards the front paws.

Kwooo!

Theberon screamed.

Several hideous cuts formed on his forelimbs.

The amount of blood which poured out wasn’t unusual.

Leueta was in a bad state too.

“Kuak! It hurts!”

His right arm was crushed.

It was an unstoppable force. And the moment the paw came he tried to protect himself. However, the skin and muscles of the bones were too thick and hard.

Naturally, he was pushed out and his right arm was smashed.

“Die like that!”

Leueta, who was sensing a crisis for the first time in a while, stretched out his left arm towards the beast.

Dozens of blades protruded and flew for Theberon’s chest.

Knowing how thick the skin of the beast was, he made sharper blades.

Theberon clenched his teeth and covered his chest with wounded paws.

Clash!

“Kuaaah!!”

The blades pierced his arms and to the skin of his chest.

Luckily, it didn’t hit his heart.

Theberon had its eyes wide open and pulled out its paws.

“You’re crazy!”

As Theberon pulled out its paws with a huge force, Leueta couldn’t bear the wind pressure.

Kwak! And the blades which were pulled out were smashed.

Leueta who felt himself turn defenseless, suddenly felt the world darken.

An alarm began to ring in his mind.

And he curled up.

“…!”

At that moment, his consciousness was shaken.

And an incredible force struck him.

No matter the fact that he was a noble from the Devildom, the current shock he received from the beast was enough to drive him out of his mind.

“Kuak!”

It took less than 5 seconds for it to come and smash him down from a few hundred meters.

Leueta’s limbs were twisted.

And the world went dark.

And then when he opened his eyes he saw a huge ass falling down.

Kwaang!

A shock which shook the entire Apton.

And a huge pit inside the Mirinae Forest.

“Huk!”

Leueta rolled on the floor.

Just before being crushed, he managed to move away.

As the dust rose because of the huge hole, he was sure that he had a chance for victory. He created blades all over his body.

He was planning on cutting down the beast.

“Did you forget about me?”

At that time, a familiar voice came from behind.

Leueta turned to see two purple eyes shining in the dust.

“Fuck!”

One crisis after another.

And he saw it drawing a sharp sword pointed at his neck.

He was uncomfortable in the current situation, but Leueta couldn’t stop it.

[Path of Destruction]

Extremely condensed black light penetrated Leueta.

It wasn’t just Theberon that Jamie had prepared.

With a smile he said.

“You should have been vigilant till the very end.”

Jamie smiled watching the Baron of the Devildom crumble with a distressed expression.

Jamie never thought that Theberon could defeat the demon. From the start, the bear was the one at a disadvantage.

So Jamie just hoped for the demon to open up a little gap.

Just like right now!

“Kuak…!”

‘Path of Destruction’ is a black magic which releases all the power absorbed by Leviathan.

Its attribute is darkness, so it had the power which could be close to ‘extinction’.

“If only you had no gaps like now, this wouldn’t have worked.”

“Cough! Cough!”

“Did the situation reverse?”

“Very… good?”

The black flames as Leueta’s eyes weakened.

“It has been a long time since I was driven this far. Fine. It was so long.”

Leueta staggered and stood up.

Jamie gathered black mana in his hands, ready to cast another spell. He intended to blow off the head this time.

However, Jamie acting first didn’t happen.

“I don’t know anything anymore. Let’s let this be.”

Darkness engulfed the head of the demon.

Nothing Jamie could do.

“Ha!”

Jamie let out a pleasant sigh as he looked at Leueta who was down.

Knocked down.

Although the enemy was a creepy master class, it was still a master class which could destroy everyone.

And the strength of the demon made Jamie tremble for the first time in a long while, it gave him despair about his current skills.

But look who was standing.

“…”

Jamie, who was about to turn around, stopped moving as he felt something wrong.

Leueta who died, which meant to be immovable forever.

But, why was the demon wriggling?

“It is melting.”

Leueta’s body was turning into liquid.

The floor moistened with black water which was sticky.

“This, no…”

Among demons there were those who took a new form after death.

As they lose their intelligence, they end up as normal monsters.

Like current the Leueta.

“Dam it! Even it is hatched! Did it have to be someone like him!”

Among the demons a rare class was present, and since Leueta was the ‘Humanoid’ it was the worst situation for Jamie.

But now wasn’t the time to be worried about it.

Leueta, who was now a monster, had to be held off!

Jamie opened the door to the ruins.

And the limp body fell down.

But soon the earth shook as if an earthquake had happened and jolted the entire land.

The body which had little to none magi in it seemed to be strong enough to collapse the ruins.

“Avoid it…!”

A monster with no intelligence and a Master class at that.

If something like that ran wild…

Jamie didn’t want to think of it.

Disaster was what would be awaiting them.

There was nothing more he could do.

He went straight for Venna. However, even a monster with no intelligence would never lose sight of its enemy.

Jamie watched bitterly as he watched bladed tentacles come for him.

“Damn it-”

Puck!

Blood spurted into the air.

Jamie closed his eyes with a contorted expression.

“This isn’t a good thing. My senses almost failed me.”

Jamie opened his eyes, and the tentacles were neatly cut in front of him.

What happened?

Jamie looked.

He was in someone’s arms.

He looked at the person holding him with a bewildered expression. And asked in a startled voice.

“You, why are you here?”

“Welton’s son is quite a troublemaker.”

Beryl Onyx looked at Jamie and smiled.

This man had left Apton from what he heard, so why was the Sword Master with him?

Jamie stared at Beryl who carefully lowered him.

“Stay here. You know how dangerous this could be.”

And the man moved to Leueta.

“Kuuuuuk!”

The bladed tentacles reinforced with magi flew in.

The swordsman of Windfury simply lowered his sword in a straight slash.

Jamie felt refreshed at the gentle breeze.

All the tentacles which were coming in got cut without a sound.

And Beryl disappeared.

Jamie looked around but he found nothing.

And the wind blew in again.

And when he moved his gaze, Beryl who wasn’t there till a second ago was now standing there.

After that Leueta, who was a single being, was now split into multiple pieces.

Windfury.
