About a dozen people dressed in black military attire inside the spacious underground room gathered to join the conversation. It consisted of 30 men and 20 women and five people standing in front of them in a military stance where they crossed their arms behind them. One of the people known as the leader walked forward. He had slightly silvery white hair with a tall, well-shouldered build. He was Argo, an 80 m tall Titan who was predicted to be the next successor to the Titan God. Despite not belonging to the family, Argo had the same ability because he had drunk the blood of the previous Titan and waited for this day to come. When it comes to the four behind him are troop commanders. On the far right is Commander Jackson; he has red hair with a sword on his back; although he seems lazy, he is a strong enough Titan who has fought during the Ragnarok war. Next to him was Commander Nathalie; she was a girl with shoulder-length blonde hair with the most potent magic among the Titans.
Gwen's village had a simple architecture where the buildings only consisted of white bricks while the roofs used leaves from trees that could ward off rain.Each house was at least five metres apart, each of which was the same size; usually, if you go to a village or town, they always put rocks as a floor base but here, everything was purely from the ground, and the people looked unhealthy.Luna held my arm without lowering her umbrella while Evelyn took my other hand. I was already tired of telling them to stay away, so I let it go; while thinking stupid things in my head, like comparing the chest size of the two.But Gwen's voice hit me. "By the way, why was Ellie staring at everyone with that weird look from earlier?"I answered casually, "Ellie judges everyone by whether they're edible or not."Hearing that Gwen had a troubled expression, she held my clothes as if asking with her eyes."Is she going to kill us?"I shook my head with certainty making her breathe a sigh of relief. A
Both Luna and I dodged as a flame rushed towards me; I pushed my foot at high speed to create destruction behind me.I kicked with my right foot, then twisted my body to kick my right foot, and as I jumped, I twisted myself with a scissor kick."Your mystic eyes don't seem to be the fighting type; this will be much easier."Loki caught my leg and threw it through a building, and Luna did not waste her opportunity.She covered her hand with roses, and when it was about to hit Loki, she was thrown just like I was."Are you okay, Gwen?""No problem."I flexed my posture as I pumped both fists in the air."Let's finish him off."Luna nodded in agreement; Loki emerged from the debris that had fallen on him and walked away without a hitch. He showed the fire in his hand and threw it at us like a ball.Luna has the rose ability, so her knowledge is not suitable if it has to be used against Loki. Even if we lose, the entire population in this town will die.Without thinking anything, I steppe
The undead began to ignore the residents to attack the two of us. I stretched out my hand to create a giant blaze; their bodies or clothes were all burnt to a crisp.As expected, two people were still able to stand without being injured in the slightest. With an electrified spear, it deflected my flame attack. Meanwhile, Miya played with her dagger and then lunged at me, which was held back by the same sword from Beatrice."I'll handle this, Axel.""I understand."I ran to the side, and the lightning spear user came after me; it was a little strange how a strong person like him could die, mainly since his body was entirely controlled by magic.He shot a bolt of lightning at me, which I casually dodged; a sea of explosions happily echoed around me, and materials were lifted into the air as smoke rose as a sign of damage.I twisted myself to narrow the distance to the spear wielder and swung Evelyn's sword to create a wind blade that travelled towards him. And it collided with the light
The battle restarted where it was Ellie against another muscular man."I will destroy this little girl, hahaha."The man played the role of the bad guy.With one punch from Ellie, the man shot into the sky until his figure disappeared far away."The winner is Ellie."I guessed it from the start. This was followed by Luna, who had to fight a very strong-looking demi-human wolf woman.Evelyn, beside me, kept encouraging her just like she did Ellie."Fight Luna, destroy your enemies, Yeezy..."She was busy on her own. It was the same for Beatrice.Because of her cute behaviour, no one protested even though it was noisy. Luna sighed before darting forward, using her footing, and she jumped over the enemy to deliver a scissor kick which was well held by the demi-human until Luna had to jump back to keep her distance.Without pausing, the wolf girl launched herself to deliver a quick counter punch as if she had been trained for a long time.Luna was out of the arena in just over two minutes
The martial arts competition opened with a dance by the dancing girls wearing long red dresses with flower embellishments. They shot fireworks as the host prepared to welcome the contestants.This was still the preliminary round because the number of people participating in this match seemed large.Beatrice was the most favoured contestant; despite her petite frame, she had trounced two big men.Ellie and Luna followed behind; after them, I was about to go up to the stage reserved for my first match.I could see all my members watching, including Evelyn, who enjoyed eating the grilled fish there.She said to me, "Axel dear, that guy in front of you looks weak, so hurry up and win and buy me more fish."I overheard people talking from the single guy's camp."They're brides.""Probably just a walking wallet."He attracted too much attention, especially the weak part; the man in front of me looked very strong. He had an athletic body with steel muscles and iron wire veins."I will crush
This was the last point of our assault; on a tree branch Luna sat down to watch the camp of our enemies.I, who was below her, asked her, "How is it, Luna?""Looks like they've noticed us.""I see, it's natural anyway... they sent information through letters to each other between points, but now they can't do it."When I said that, Luna continued, "The leader has come out; he's a big man with horns and wings on his back; he also wears heavy armour and a giant mace."That's the image of a demon."A low-level demon is no match for me; why don't we let Ellie and Beatrice take care of it.""I asked them to watch over a different part of the territory; I don't want to give them another job after that.""Whatever, all that matters is that I want to get back to the city, take a shower and then eat some fancy food."Both Luna and I exchanged glances before giving small nods and dispersing. Several low-class demons were combing our hideout area, which we had to kill quickly.I slipped between
[Axel's point of view.]After finishing her story, Evelyn softly sighed as she lay on the bed."Wait, you said my mother was sealed, but where is it?""I can't say if I tell you to go there alone, especially since it's a perilous place; at least wait until Axel gets all my power," she replied to Beatrice."That's not fair.""Your mother isn't going anywhere; I'm more worried about the elves being held by the holy goddess' followers... I also want to rescue her immediately, but we must choose the path step by step to get satisfactory results; speaking of satisfaction, Axel quickly climbs on my body."I cover her body with the blanket."I'll take the other room; Beatrice can rest here. Luna and Ellie, you guys should get some sleep too.""We understand.""I want to eat before bed.""You've eaten more than you should.""Not cool; use your evil eye, Axel; it would be much more interesting," Evelyn said."Stripping every woman with a look I hesitate ever use," I said weakly before closing
