Mile Chapter 322: Death Struggle 2
(T.N: Don’t worry about Cliff of this chapter because I double release this time)
『You… (Kisama = the lowest way of “you”)』(AD)
Another Ancient Dragon stood up and faced Mile along with his friend.
The two Ancient Dragons seemed to realize everything. All the reports from Beldetes that they didn’t believe and made fun of it were all true. These humans have the fighting power to be able to defeat “one foolish Ancient Dragon who made fun of his opponents and was off-guard” with a simultaneous attack.
However, they still have two members left and they aren’t stupid or off-guard…
And of course, no matter how stupid they are, they wouldn’t ridicule the humans who defeated one of them in a short moment.
『We must heal Lucred quickly, so there’s not much room for it. Don’t think bad of us』(AD)
Chi ~yun! (SFX)
The beam attack released by Mile was repelled by the magic barrier from the Ancient Dragon. Rather than blocking it head-on, it was diverted by the large angled barrier.
『Lattice Force, Barrier!』(Mile)
The Ancient Dragon fired a lump of fire instead of a torrent of flames, it struck on Mile’s barrier. Since this is a type of barrier that covers the affected area instead of a single-place type. Maybe it’s called the Origin of Bulletproof (避弾経始) or Sloped armor. Anyway, it’s an efficient form of defense
The Ancient Dragon was struck by lightning from overhead but he stood quietly.
Perhaps from the moment, he realized that all the reports of Beldetes were true, he considered all the descriptions of combat with enemies in the reports and paid attention to the lightning dropped from directly above, and he prepared a counter-measure.
Did he detect a change in magic (signs of nanomachine activity)?
Did he sense the acc.u.mulation of electricity?
Or was it a wild instinct?
A magical barrier has been cast above his head.
He didn’t know “thunder magic” is magic-based like “fire magic, an attack by magical power” or “an attack by the physical phenomenon of electricity”
Anyway, it seems that “thunder magic” can be repelled by magic barrier.
While Mile earned time, Pauline and Rena finished casting and released their attack magic. It was the same as the previous one, which was effective enough to take down the first Ancient Dragon.
Rena’s flame magic disappeared, and Pauline’s rock trap drastically slowed down as the flame magic disappeared, and then it was struck down by the tail of the Ancient Dragon.
Apparently, it seems that the Ancient Dragon can cast not only the magic barrier but also the physical barrier that was unknown to humans.
Their physical barrier seems not to be as perfect as Mile’s Lattice Force Barrier, but it seems to be able to slow down the physical attacks by earth magic to some extent. It could only offset a considerable amount of kinetic energy from big Ma.s.s Magic but and it might be able to completely block the small Ma.s.s magic.
『It’s no use. Unless we are off-guard, it’s unlikely that an Ancient Dragon can be harmed by human beings.
Hundreds of years ago, there was a legend that a young Ancient Dragon was lost against humans. But that was just some youngster who wanted to play with humans, fighting against thousands of troops at the same time and was shot by countless metal ammunition. If it’s just 4 human beings, what can you do?』(AD)
『Mile, are you going?』(Rena)
『…Their barrier can deflect my attack as well as your attack…
And if two of them are attacked at the same time, this barrier will probably be penetrated …』(Mile)
Rena’s trio asked Mile in the barrier, but Mile’s response meant “checkmate”
And the other Ancient Dragon wanted to hurry up and heal his fallen friend also joined attacking.
A continuous torrent of flame.
A lump of Fire was released at Mile’s barrier again.
『No good, my barrier will break with their next attack,
Retreat to the right side of the rock!』(Mile)
The barrier is unlikely able to keep up anymore.
However, for such crisis time, you should make use of the rocky battlefield.

If the barrier and the rock ma.s.s are used together, the defense power will be slightly increased. And beyond that, the Ancient Dragon can’t hide behind the rocks with their giant body. Even if it has only a slight effect, if you acc.u.mulate a lot of such things, it may be a final decision to win or lose.
Flame Breath wasn’t applied to her whole body. Maevis desperately parried just before directly hit by the flame, most of her body managed to avoid the flame flow… Except for her left arm.
While screaming, Maevis desperately rushed into the shade of the rock.
It hurt but if she felt at that place, she would just die. So she ignored the pain and moved to a safe place. That was the iron rule for those who engage in battle to survive.
『Ma… Maevis, your hand…, your left hand…』(Pauline)
As Pauline looked Maevis after she reached the shade, Pauline was stunned.
『Your hand… because of me, Maevis’ left hand…
Maevis’ dream to become a Knight, because of me, it’s my fault…』(Pauline)
Yes, Maevis’ left arm disappeared from around the elbow.
There was nothing at the tip of the left elbow, which was burnt black.
Temperature conduction cutoff,
Heating partial cooling,
Stop cell destruction!』(Mile)
Mile desperately cast magic to stop the pain and prevent damage,
Because she hasn’t dealt with such large-scale site defects, she doesn’t know what to do.
Rena doesn’t move and is solidified.
Pauline is pale and confused.
Mile desperately continues her magic for first aid.
『It… it’s my fault…, Maevis’ dream, your dream …』(Pauline)
Thanks to Mile, Maevis finally got rid of her pain, she smiled and said the upset Pauline
『… It ’s not a big deal compared to Pauline’s life …』(Maevis)
